Krauthammer: This is the third ‘summer of recover’ in a row that isn’t recovering – three strikes and you’re out

The manufacturing sector has stopped hiring and Krauthammer says that blaming China and Europe is par for the course with Obama who blames everything else except his own policies. Krauthammer explains that Obama gave us the “largest stimulus in galactic history” which did nothing to help the economy recover and now with three summers of recovery in a row that aren’t summers of recovery, Krauthammer says “three strikes and you’re out”:

    Recovery is not on Obama’s agenda.

    “Recovery” from love of country and free enterprise is what O wants.

    That’s right. Romney needs to learn how to touch that chord that Reagan was so good at sounding. Reagan could tickle the ivories of our patriotism with natural ease, and together we had an American symphony. There must be a yearning for that.

    There’s an old saying that says, “If you want to lead the orchestra, you’ve got to turn your back on the crowd.” The crowd I’m thinking of are the media, and the hard-left collective.

    What we need is a collection of individuals, who will sing those songs of freedom, and sound the bells of liberty. Sometimes I can hear those now faint sounds emanating from Christ Church, and can hear the minutemen launching out on horseback, muskets in hand. I can picture Francis Scott Key penning the Star Bangled Banner, and George Washington kneeling in prayer. It’s time to turn up the volume and power up the high definition of these.

      Good luck with that! Romney is not even close to being a pimple on Reagan’s butt.

      • Rshill7

        You be that butt-pimple Guest. Give yourself a big squeeze for me :-I

        Happy Independence Day! Yay!

        • Guest1776rcp

          And a happy Independence Day to you too. And good with that turning that stiff Romney the robot into the great communicator Reagan.

    obama kept his promise to transform America into a third world country…no jobs, ho homes and dependent on the tyrannical gov’t.

    Americans before you cast you vote, consider the following:

    Interesting to say the least.

    City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level
    1. Detroit , MI
    2. Buffalo , NY
    3. Cincinnati , OH
    4. Cleveland , OH
    5. Miami , FL
    5. St. Louis , MO
    7. El Paso , TX
    8. Milwaukee , WI
    9. Philadelphia , PA
    10. Newark , NJ
    What do the top ten cities
    (over 250,000) with the highest
    poverty rate all have in common?

    Detroit, MI (1st on the list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961.
    Buffalo , NY (2nd) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1954.
    Cincinnati , OH (3rd) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1984.
    Cleveland , OH (4th) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1989.
    Miami , FL (5th) has never had a Republican mayor.
    St. Louis , MO (6th) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1949.

    Newark , NJ (10th) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1907.

      Grace – I knew what the results would be before I read them but you cannot hide form the facts. Dems are profligate, wasteful and economically illiterate. This is what you get when you put nonsense ahead of common sense.

      The problem with socialists is that they eventually run out of other people’s money.

    • NYGino

      12grace, most people on this site aren’t surprised. Too bad your excellent post isn’t made available to others. A real argument against liberals and Democrats.

      • 12grace

        Thank You, n. I really appreciate your kindness.

        Let’s copy, paste and distribute information that we find on this website and others that supports the Conservative position. This is one way that we can fight back.

    • Amos Wright

      Do you have the sources for the Ten Poorest Cities Claim? It’d be helpful.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    “…it’s always something else.” That sums up obama’s (lack of) leadership style and a substantial reason why this country is in such a mess. Quit looking for someone or something to blame for your shortcomings and come up with some ways to get us out of this mess. We need a leader in the White House, not a “blamer in chief.”

  • From your lips to God’s ears Charles!

      Just posted the same thing, then scrolled down and found your post! Great minds ya know!

  • I think most people have given up on Obama and his socialist form of economics. Hey, if you’re on food stamps, welfare, public housing, get free public schooling, stundent financial aid, and a host of other government entitlements, then Obama has been a great success for you. But to all those of you who actually have to WORK for a living, it has been a horror. Time to send this man home to Chicago, and fast. The nation depends on it.

    • wodiej

      most of the freeloaders won’t vote either.

  • dennisl59

    One problem…there are still 30-40% of American Citizens that believe ‘The Big Lie’.

    • 12grace

      Yes, the 30-40% that are getting gov’t goodies on our tax dollars!

  • aZjimbo

    Summer of recovery? Yea right. We are still in a recession since 2008 no matter what anyone in Washington says.

    • wodiej

      that’s a fact.

      • aZjimbo

        And the present economy ia getting worse. I bet we are in a recession now and they are cooking the GDP numbers like the unemployment numbers. I say the real unemployment is at least 15%. JS

    From Dr. K’s lips to God’s ear……PLEASE, OH PLEASE, OH PLEASE!

  • warpmine

    He’s comin’ to PA, yahoo! Where can I intervene to heckle? Probably to where his supporters are in heavy infestations er concentrations, Phili and Tittsburg. Central PA would string him up, maybe a tar and feather job….firing up my roofing kettle in preparation.

  • NYGino

    “He’s going to be touting his economic record”. You’ve got to be kidding. I only wish he would try.

  • Charles Krauthammer is always excellent in his observations. He is the only person in the media who really is fair and balanced.

  • yhxqqsn

    Yeah, but BO is likeable so….. who cares?

    But it is true that when people ‘like’ someone they give them every break in the world and when people don’t ‘like’ someone they nitpick them to death.

  • bobemakk

    And many conservative journalists like Charles K forget to mention that Obamas jobs czar Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE, one of the largest companies in the world, is shipping his own GE jobs overseas. What happened to his committment to US as our jobs czar? He is a typical socialist just like Obama and the rest of the Obama cronies.
