What Will They Call the Romney Stimulus in 2013?

Back in October, I speculated that, with unemployment projected to remain high through the entirety of the next administration, a hypothetical President Romney would not stand idly by without attempting to goose the economy.

Recall that Romney was touting a “Republican stimulus plan” as of December 2008.

Yet since the word “stimulus” has become radioactive on the right, I imagined, further, that a Romney stimulus package would be called something else, and that it would rely mostly on deficit-financed tax cuts, as has been the pattern of Republican presidents since Reagan.

Nevertheless the package would walk like stimulus and quack like stimulus.

This is when sanity returned last night. Charles Krauthammer's and Britt Hume's critiques:
Hume first quoted Obama: "We honor the strivers, the dreamers, the risk-takers who have always been the driving force behind our free enterprise system, the greatest engine of growth and prosperity the world has ever known."
Hume's reaction: "Well, there are an awful lot of businessmen and women out there who don't think he honors those things and all. And it's quite remarkable to hear him say that."
Krauthammer's analysis: "There was nothing to it. This is a man that believes government can and should do a lot. But nothing in it tells how he will go from today to tomorrow. At least Romney had a five-point plan. What we heard from Obama was vision. He pulled numbers out of a hat. But he didn't say how we would get from A to B. It's a vision. I have a vision of America where there is no disease and everybody has a private airplane. I'm simply amazed. This is like an A student turning in a paper that is clearly a C. It had no content in it."
He quipped at the end..."Otherwise, I loved it really."
Krauthammer adding a little levity...funny.
Like I said, all was well with the world again.
Bah, the spinners hard at work and Carol lapping it all up.

Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant & abandoned the Afghanistan effort to invade a country that had nothing to do with Bin Lade or Al Qaida.
We first went after the Taliban in Afghanistan in case you've forgotten. We ran them into the mountains and bombed the heck out of those mountains and sent troops in to scour inside those mountains to find and kill not only bin Laden but as many of his thugs as possible.

Almost every war analyst will tell you Afghanistan is a no-win war. The Russian's tried it for 10 years.

Saddam Hussein, on the other hand, was a clear and present danger not only to the United States but to the civilized world after thumbing his nose up at the UN 15 times. Every single democrat in Washington knew he had to go back in 1998 and believed he absolutely had WMDs and would use them again given the first opportunity.

When al Qaeda claimed Iraq the frontlines, we got rid of a lot of them there. And, as far as anyone knew, bin Laden was dead inside one of those mountains.

However, Bush had special agents hot on his trail long before he left office.

There were more and equally big fish to fry than just bin Laden and Bush knew it.

Bush also knew that Afghanistan would result in another Vietnam. Why is it that only Democrat presidents seem to love those kinds of wars?

Hi! I am just blogging for fun...I copied and
pasted something from the bayside apparitions
web-site...See?...“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”- Zechariah 12:3 DRB

“For these are the days of vengeance, that all things may be fulfilled, that are written. But woe to them that are with child, and give suck in those days; for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword; and shall be led away captives into all nations; and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles; till the times of the nations be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves; men withering away for fear, and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world.”– St. Luke 21:22-25 DRB

"The nobles thereof shall not be there: they shall call rather upon the king, and all the princes thereof shall be nothing." Isaias 34:12 DRB

The word, "they" refers to the princes of Edom, who are the Palestinians today. Therefore, all that Scripture requires is that a Palestinian State be "proclaimed" by her leaders. This new Palestinian state does not have to actually take shape and begin functioning before the state and its leaders "the princes thereof shall be nothing", i.e., shall vanish away.

"And I lifted up my eyes, and saw: and behold four horns. And I said to the angel that spoke in me: What are these? And he said to me: These are the horns that have scattered Juda, and Israel, and Jerusalem." Zacharias 1:18-19 DRB

In a groundbreaking discovery demonstrates that the "four horns" are the Quartet of Nations -- United States, Great Britain, the European Union, and Russia. And, what is their stated aim, stated from the beginning of their existence? To divide Israel and to scatter Judah, Israel and Jerusalem! I consider this prophetic understanding to be vital in our understanding of events as they are unfolding in front of our eyes, in the Daily News.

The city of Damascus in Syria will be totally destroyed in the future. "The burden of Damascus. Behold Damascus shall cease to be a city, and shall be as a ruinous heap of stones." Isaiah, 17:1DRB Damascus, the capital of Syria, is one of the longest continually-inhabited cities on the planet, but that could change any day now. As you can see from the Scripture above, Damascus is going to be destroyed in the near future. Already the Syrian treasurers and artifacts located in Damascus are already being moved to other parts of Syria. With this weapons deals between Russia and Syria could hasten the destruction of Damascus.

Carmi says: I do not have too many alphabet letters
to comment with, but you get the message. It is
right out of the Bible and we are living these
words today in our lifetime.

I do not know what to say today. It is one day closer to my death and the takeover of the earth by

all happen sooner or later. About Mitt Romney
starting a war with Iran, if elected President of the U.S.A.; we may have a war with Iran before the
presidential election! About religion...that is what the Iran situation is about...Islam hates The
Jews...So, Iran, if they build a nuclear weapon and
have a rocket to deliver it to Israel, will do so!
Soooo, Israel must bomb Iran, to destroy their
nuclear bomb making sites! Iran, doesn`t like The
U.S.A. either! Ho-hum...wars and rumors of wars!
Where have you heard those words before? They are
the words the human race will be saying, before
the 2nd coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ! Look up,

Have you seen a few of the liberal commentators on your side lately?

Krauthammer is a former M.D. in Psychiatry, by the way. Won the Pultizer Prize in journalism.

It's what's on the inside that counts. Liberals are often too shallow to get past the shell on the outside. As long as it looks good, they cover their ears.

A Republican Stimulus Plan
Act now.

By Mitt Romney

What is Washington waiting for? The inauguration is less than five weeks away: At the rate we’ve been going, another 500,000 jobs will be lost by then. The downward spiral is deepening and accelerating: Congress and the president must act now.

American families have lost about $11 trillion in net worth as securities and home values have plummeted. This translates into about $400 billion less annual consumer spending, net of government safety-net funding. Exports won’t grow to make this up, as the dollar has strengthened with investors worldwide clamoring for its relative security. Investments won’t make up the gap either, as bank loans and secondary-market financing have shrunk and as fresh equity is virtually non-existent.

So this is surely the time for economic stimulus.

....The Democrats may want to wait for Obama, but the country needs action now. Republicans can — and must — play an important role in shaping a stimulus bill that makes sense for America and lays a foundation for future prosperity and growth.

Go Romney! Oh wait. That was 'yesterday'. Who knows what he's saying today.
