Lemon Socialism and Crony Capitalism: The Failure of Obamanomics

The collapse of solar firm Solyndra is the beginning of the end for Obamanomics.  After more than  32 months on the job, President Obama and his economic (on)crack team have managed to increase the chronic unemployment rate to record highs, increase the national debt to record highs, decrease economic growth to near-record lows, and decrease the President’s approval rating to record lows.  Not exactly great results, but now the solar scandal is exposing why Obamanomics is such a failure.

I say the Solyndra scandal is the beginning of the end because it’s finally shedding light on what’s really behind the administration’s economic policies: lemon socialism and crony capitalism.  These failed ideas are a “toxic combination,” according to Charles Krauthammer, and have been exposed as the backbone of Obamanomics.

Paul Krugman is a fascinating example of a brilliant mind gone haywire, somewhat like Russell Crowe’s character in A Beautiful Mind. 

To commemorate 9/11, the ever-brilliant Krugman published a short blog post titled “The Years of Shame.”  In it, he calls Pres. Bush and Rudy Giuliani “fake heroes.”  Here’s the meat of the post:

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te [sic] atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

Actually, I take the “brilliant” comment back, although I’m pretty sure he hears voices in his head.  Krugman never had a brilliant, or beautiful, mind.  He’s been a morally bankrupt, intellectually elitist, dishonest smear merchant his entire life.  No one becomes that disturbed based on life experiences.  In fact, I have it on good authority that he attacked a fellow kindergartener for being a “fake hero” after a fire drill.

Every once in a while I receive an email from a reader who wishes that I’d be sodomized by a prison inmate.  Others just call me names.  Some do both.  My most recent email is below.

That’s how some in the media are referring to the hoopla surrounding President Obama’s upcoming jobs speech in front of a joint session of Congress.  Apparently the conflict between Obama and Boehner now rises to the level of a scandal.
