“CALCULATED, CUNNING AND INTENTIONAL”
by Joseph DeMaio, ©2020
(Aug. 9, 2020) — Demonstrating, once again, that you cannot fix stupid, but recalling that you can vote it out of office, those paragons of intellect in the Democrat Party – Slow Joe Biden; Nancy (“I-left-my-brain-in-San Crapcisco”); and Chuck (“math-challenged”) Schumer – today coughed up their lame responses to President Trump’s executive orders of this week.
Recall that the executive orders were necessitated as a consequence of Democrat intransigence in Congress to negotiate across the aisle in good faith on yet another Wuhan pandemic “relief” bill. But for that political pouting from the left side of the aisle, President Trump would not have had to issue the orders.
One of the executive orders suspends, retroactively to July 1, 2020, the onerous federal payroll tax until the beginning of 2021, immediately putting additional dollars into workers’ wallets. Slow Joe just announced that this is a terrible idea, forgetting (wow, imagine that…) that during his service under the Second Usurper in Chief (“SUC”), Barack Obama, he championed the idea.
The Wretch from San Crapcisco joined in to criticize – falsely – that a payroll tax cut for millions of American workers will jeopardize Social Security and Medicare, “forgetting” (in her case better described as “hypocritically ignoring”) that she, too, championed such action back when the SUC was occupying the White House.
However, the prize for the most mathematically-challenged response must go to Senate Minority Leader Schumer. In describing the executive orders on the ABC “This Week” show, Schumer asserted: “[a]nd, unfortunately, the president’s executive orders, described in one word, could be paltry, in three words, unworkable, weak, and far too narrow.” Ummm…, not to put too fine a point on it, Chuck, but that’s five (5) words, not three (3). But hey, when Democrats are seeking to bankrupt the nation at the clip of nearly one trillion dollars per month since the pandemic started, what’s the big deal in confusing three words for five? Close enough for government work…, right?
Only in The Beltway could one trillion dollars per month (i.e., $1,000,000,000,000.00/mo.) added to the national debt be deemed “paltry.” Yet Schumer has no difficulty labeling President Trump’s stopgap efforts to backfill for a gridlocked Congress as “paltry,” the synonyms for which include “meager” and “measly.”
That which is “meager” and “measly” in Washington, D.C. is the current leadership of the Democrat Party, i.e., Biden, Pelosi and Schumer. That cabal is, at bottom, a collection of hypocritical numbskulls whose only mantra these days is “Orange man bad.” Slow Joe can be forgiven for his clearly diminished intellectual capacity: dementia and its related infirmities are insidious diseases. The other two cabal members – Pelosi and Schumer – cannot claim similar disabilities. Accordingly, their hypocrisies and hyperbolic statements can only be seen as being calculated, cunning and intentional.
Remember what John Wayne said, referenced in the first paragraph of this offering, then vote very carefully in November.
