The Jawa Report: Obama Refused to Get Unemployment Down in 2009 Because It Wasn’t An Election Year, Suggests…His Own Budget

I have been saying this for months.  This was all part of the plan.  Its also why he wants a new stimulus bill.  More money to help prop the Dems up for 2010 and himself for 2012.

I am glad to see someone else noticed this and that Obama admitted it.

Erik Erickson makes an unsettling discovery in the Obama Budget Proposal on page 9:

All told, as of the end of November 2009, about 50 percent of Recovery Act funds—or $395 billion—has been either obligated or is providing assistance directly to Americans in the form of tax relief. BY DESIGN, the bulk of the remaining 50 percent of Recovery Act funds will be deployed in the coming months of 2010 and during the beginning of 2011 to support additional job creation when our economy continues to need a boost. Many of the programs slated to receive additional funding in the near future are those with significant promise of job creation. These include more than $7 billion in broadband expansion, approximately $8 billion in funds to lay the foundation for a high-speed rail network, and continued funding for other transportation projects. All told, the Recovery Act is on track to meet the goal of disbursing 70 percent of its funds in the first 18 months of its life.

So the plan was never to spend the stimulus money right away – something which Obama suggested he and his administration had done and were doing in his SOTU address:

Experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act, we might face a second depression. So we acted – immediately and aggressively. […]

(ed. –by withholding funds for a full year?)

[…] One in ten Americans still cannot find work. […]

(ed. –and you did NOTHING to address this when it mattered for those people and (by design) didn’t act until it was politically convenient to do so?)

For these Americans and so many others, change has not come fast enough. Some are frustrated; some are angry. They don’t understand why it seems like bad behavior on Wall Street is rewarded but hard work on Main Street isn’t; or why Washington has been unable or unwilling to solve any of our problems.

(ed. – um, champ. That was BY DESIGN. Remember?

Erickson correctly notes that change has not come fast enough BY DESIGN.

The money (or much of it) was supposed to be put on hold – by design of the Democcrat Party/Obama Administration who wrote the legislation – while the country suffered agonizingly through 2009 and people were tossed into unemployment. This was done intentionally so that the taxpayers’ money could then be dumped into the private sector in 2010 so that he’d get "credit" for a "recovery."

If this is as insidious and callous as it looks, Obama should be impeached and thrown out of office. He’s been essentially holding voters hostage for a year for his own personal political ransom.
