Mike Williams' Obama Watch - May 13, 2009

This shouldn’t surprise you:

the fact that the federal workforce numbers will skyrocket [15.6% increase in FY 2010] under Barack Obama is the best way to show the American people how drastic the changes [are that] the president is trying to implement….

More bureaucrats not only means more regulation, more wasteful spending, more interference in our lives, it also means more loyal Democratic voters. It would be interesting to see a map of where most of these hires took place….

This either:

Jake Tapper reports on the discovery of an internal EPA memo that admits what everyone knows about cap-and-trade systems and regulation of CO2. The memo advises the White House that any attempt to regulate output of CO2 in energy production [check this out] will likely have “serious economic consequences,” an admission that will boost criticism of the EPA’s proposed regulation of the industry. …

Or this:

Obama Breaks With Gates, Cancels Nuke Program.

Instapundit: "So, a question: If Obama were trying to wreck America as a superpower, what would he be doing differently?"

George Soros, no doubt, is ecstatic. Meanwhile, Ray Robison at American Thinker asks, “How's Obama's foreclosure policy working out?”

It has been nearly three months since a newly sworn in President Obama stepped forward with a plan to rescue underwater homeowners from foreclosure. Now, we learn that the President's $275 Billion foreclosure fix has floundered and failed.

The professional media slobbered over Obama's homeowner bailout under the pretext that they cared about the little guy/gal losing the family home.

Yet as foreclosure numbers climb to a record, breakneck pace the media stubbornly refuses to note this enormous failure of the Obama administration. The foreclosure "surge" has been lost.

CNN is reporting that April saw a record 342,000 homes slip into the foreclosure process. And the worst is yet to come. According to the article, government intervention did slow down the process, for a moment. Some major lenders took a pause last February to see what the foreclosure bailout plan would bring. But the delay is over. According to CNN it will get worse next month as even more homes move into repossession….

And, just as Bush told us in 2006, Social Security is in deep trouble. (I vividly recall the Dems howling Chicken Little then.) Ed Morrissey’s opinion: The “US [is] speeding towards financial crash.” This is a very good read if you have some time.

So, will the MSM start running up any red flags? Probably not in Washington State, anyway.
