#1596: Obama is inventing new powers for government

If a corporation is deemed "important" enough, and it starts doing poorly, Obama wants the government to be able to seize control of it.

Welcome to fascist America!

The libtards who threw around the "fascism" label during the Bush administration probably look upon all this with approval.

Scipio gives brief comments on a panoply of topics. First up, the "All Barack Coverage" network providing a propaganda outlet for Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats....

If this is true, there has to be a penalty for it. Chrysler deputy chief executive Jim Press said, "You have two choices: you can either help us or burn us all down." Apparently Chrysler wanted its dealers to order a bunch of extra inventory; and Press finished the thought by saying, "If you decide not to do that, we've got a good memory."

So now there are a bunch of closed dealerships--and that still does not make sense to me, as dealerships are customers of the automakers and the last thing you want to do in a down market is close places that sell your product!--and there are allegations that the closing decisions were political in nature. This latest news does not help matters.

The whole damn thing is dirty.

I am hearing tell that Iranian troops have refused to fire on civilian rioters, and that some generals have been arrested.

Michelle Malkin says that the Iranian government has mostly shut down the communications system of the country, and at least part of the reason has to be that they don't want the rest of the world to see what's happening there. It's easier to get away with murdering thousands of civilians if the international media can't get the proof out.

Barack Hussein Obama's remarks were his speechwriter's best attempt at voting "present". He doesn't want to alienate Ahmadinejad by rooting for freedom, but he also doesn't want to look like he's hoping his pal Ahmadinejad wins the day. So instead Obama looks like a lily-livered weakling.

If the rioters get their way, you just know that Obama is going to take credit for the expansion of freedom and democracy--even though he had nothing whatsoever to do with it.
