So am I just a grumpy conservative?

Well, probably. But I saw this commentary on the economic plan by Jim Cramer of Mad Money With Jim Cramer (a show which I’ve only seen when I travel because long ago I trimmed down my cable… see post below).

Basically, he’s really worried about the “stimulus plan”, too. And if you read the article, you might think it’s just one more sore-loser, conservative whiner. But I hope you keep reading; on “page 5”:

I actually embrace every part of Obama’s agenda, right down to the increase on personal taxes and the mortgage deduction. I am a fierce environmentalist who has donated multiple acres to the state of New Jersey to keep forever wild. I believe in cap and trade. I favor playing hardball with drug companies that hold up the U.S. government with me-too products.

And he goes on… six figure donations to democrats, etc.

It’s really simple: we as individuals and we as a nation cannot afford this spending spree. This isn’t a partisan assertion; it’s just common sense. A couple of years ago we all understood that Social Security is in danger because it didn’t have enough money to meet it’s obligations. Now we want to commit to more obligations while having less money and a struggling economy.

We never did fix Social Security. Funny how no one talks about that right now.

By the way: this isn’t about President Obama. President Bush did the wrong thing by opening this Pandora’s box. He spent a big glob of money: what did it get us? Why are we chasing that failed concept?

One thought on “So am I just a grumpy conservative?”

  1. It is said that the Pandora’s box opened about the same time the whiskey came out of storage…that being after Katrina. If true, the ugly rumors of “Harry & Nancy” running the country could be valid. I have cable with Fox news, MSNBC :), CNN:), etc. All three cats sleep with their paws over their ears! It is devestating to be over 65 and hear the flush of the nation going down the drain, while “THE ONE” doesn’t know what he is doing. Insulting the Brits…oh ya..saying our biggest ally is “no better than any other country”, rejecting the bust of Winston Churchill was not cool either. Could President Obama have any more ‘hoods’ around him if he tried? It makes me wonder who is corrupting Chicago as I type! Jim Crammer is just a guy. * Check out Glen Beck’s Show 4PM M-F on Fox. Also a sight: ‘The’ (I think). Glen Beck, Rush, Hannity, & O’Reilly are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore!! The backlash has begun. :)
