A Silver Platter Of GOP
Talking Points For November

by Neil Braithwaite - July 3rd, 2010 - American Thinker

•Over $800 billion in stimulus spending that hasn't worked,
•Using TARP funds to cherry-pick which banks survive and which don't
•9.7% unemployment when Obama promised it wouldn't go above 8%
•Bypassing federal bankruptcy laws and regulations to take over GM and Chrysler - using taxpayer money
•A "pay czar" deciding how much corporate executives can earn
•Almost three million jobs lost since Obama took office - when he promised to add four million by the end of 2010
•Passage of a health care bill against the majority will of the American people - many states are now challenging the bill as unconstitutional
•A slow and incompetent response to the Gulf oil spill - still leaking thousands of gallons a day over 70 days later
•Obama's deep water oil drilling ban will cost thousands of American jobs
•Failure to secure our Southern borders while suing Arizona for trying to protect its citizens
•A national debt increase of almost $3 trillion since Obama took office
•A federal debt that will represent 62% of the nation's economy by 2011 - with estimates of 100% in ten to fifteen years
•Pending cap and trade legislation laced with energy cost and job loss issues
•Democrats pushing a financial regulation reform bill that protects financial firms and ultimately hurts consumers - also being challenged as unconstitutional
•Democrats became the first House majority that failed to pass an annual budget resolution since the Congressional Budget Act was adopted in 1974
•Democrat tax increases slated for 2011 that will further harm taxpayers, the economy and job growth
•Numerous pay-to-play political scandals
•Obama's promise not to raise taxes on those making less than $250 thousand - already broken
•A weak and dangerous foreign and domestic terrorism policy

Despite this long list, many Republicans are floundering talking about issues that Democrats bring up. Republicans really cannot seem to get it together and focus on what is important. The current farce of a "Financial regulation bill" is a perfect example. Not a single one of the primary causes of the 2008 recession are addressed. NOT ONE! Yet moderate Republicans are lining up to give Obama a victory on the bill.


They are convinced that their job number one is to look bipartisan so they cannot let those nasty evil Democrats accuse them of disagreeing. Why they might look like they had a backbone and actually knew what they stood for.
