Politico, a popular left-leaning news website, reported that many Democrats, including a former Obama White House official, are “dreading” the possibility of a quick economic turnaround as the U.S. begins to reopen. This is further proof, to the extent it is needed, of why so many oh-so-compassionate Democratic governors continue to extend their lockdowns, which have thus far resulted in 40 million unemployed Americans.
Politico’s headline: “The general election scenario that Democrats are dreading.”
Jason Furman, a former economic adviser to Barack Obama recently opined to a gathering of politicians: “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.” Politico reported that Furman “laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag—truthfully—about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever.” I disagree, as some of the economic devastation tyrannical governors have wrought will be permanent. Many restaurants, movie houses and small businesses will never reopen. Moreover, much of the work force has been corrupted and seduced by unemployment compensation greater than the wages they were making while employed. Many do not fully realize that the gravy train cannot continue forever. One thing is certain: Trump has been the victim of more foul play than any president in U.S. history. After the Russia Hoax and the effects of the Chinese Virus, fake news and the leftist sanctioned and supported riots in nearly all large American cities, it would only be fair if he could benefit from a swift and deep economic turnaround.
If you have been living on another planet for the past few years and are not yet convinced the Democrats hate Trump far more than they love their country, consider this: many Democrats, particularly Obama alumni, are panicked over the thought of a strong economic upturn. Politico reported that one former Obama White House official, who is still close to the ex-president, admitted the idea of a turnaround “is my big worry.” He also characterized the level of concern among top Democratic officials as “high, high, high, high.”
That’s great guys. Screw the people. F**k the 40 million unemployed and their families. This reveals them for what they are and also proves how isolated they are from the repercussions of their own policies.
Can anyone seriously imagine Republicans prior to World War II “dreading” the idea of the nation coming out of the Great Depression? Might get FDR elected again. Can’t have that. Priorities! For that matter, maybe they were secretly hoping we wouldn’t win the war so as not to make the Democrats look good.
The modern day Democratic Party is anti-baby, anti-Christian, anti-American…and anti-reason.
