There is an old saw that I hear quite a bit. “Many a truth is told in jest.” None is truer than the SNL skit that showed Democrats at the bottom of the $700 now $850 billion dollar rabbit hole. (see video)
All though the original skit was pulled and edited because it was a little too truthful. It signaled what had become so obvious, Democrats are responsible for the bailout mess and that some liberals do get it.
SNL was willing, if only for a brief unedited moment, to acknowledge that Democrats bear a huge amount of blame for the world-wide economic crisis by making Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac their own little private experiment in socialistic practices
I saw the original skit on Saturday Night and couldn’t believe my eyes. SNL was acknowledging that George Soros, the Moveon.org 527 multibillionaire and self proclaimed Messiah who along with other billionaires and multimillionaire friends were somehow complicit in the Wall Street financial crisis as well as influential in the Democrat Party.
Many including myself have warned that Soros and other far left wing exploiters were conspiring to take over the country by controlling the Democrat Party and its Presidential candidate Barack Obama.
SNL portrayed Herbert and Marion Sandlers, left-wing moguls, as themselves, who through their mortgage company whose major product was subprime mortgages which they sold it to Wachovia for $24.2 billion in 2006 as faces to put on this crisis, faces to blame.
And what do the Sandlers do when they are not peddling subprime garbage? They are busy writing checks to leftist groups like the Center for American Progress, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Yes that ACORN.' The Sandlers are seething over the skit that is reason that it was pulled and edited.
According to Michele Malkin of the Hot Air Blog; "The Sandlers have started to invest their billions of dollars politically, in the manner of George Soros, sugar daddy of many far-left wing groups and an early and prominent supporter of Presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Soros has developed an empire of so-called 527 groups, putatively independent political activists groups that have influence within the Democratic Party. These 527 groups include the Center for American Progress, MoveOn.Org, Human Rights Watch, Media Matters and a slew of other like-minded groups… Soros, Lewis, and the Sandlers form a core group of billionaire activists and Democrat partisans who have formed a group called The Democracy Alliance. They realized that they could magnify their power by working in unison and tapping other wealthy donors to further their agenda...”
This explains how a relatively unknown candidate with no experience and no accomplishments, other than writing two biographies that show that he has no experience and no accomplishments, can be on the verge of capturing the office of President of the United States.
If Barack Obama is elected it will not really be him who sits in the White house. No it will be the vast left wing conspiracy, lead by George Soros, Herbert and Marion Sandlers, the Center for American Progress, MoveOn.Org, Human Rights Watch, Media Matters and ACORN all conspirators who for eight years attempted to kill Conservatism by bashing George W. Bush.
Which brings me to my final point, I remember distinctly Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calling for President Bush to get out in front of the effort to convince the American people that this $700 billion dollar rip-off was actually good for America.
Where Is President Bush On Most Important Crisis In Generations?- Sen. Harry ReidAnd like a marionette the President in his best bi-partisan comprehensive approach came out at Reid’s beckoning. I thought my God that’s strange his man has been hammered by the left for eight straight years and when they call him he comes arunnin’?
In fact, Barack Obama is ahead in the polls because his favor catch line is, “This financial crisis is the result of eight years of failed economic policies of the Bush administration.” And President Bush says nothing about Democrat complicity other than, “This is not the time to play the blame game”?
Then it struck me, SNL had hit on the funniest parody of the entire eight years of the Bush administration, President Bush being played for a dope, and a stooge while he thinks that he’s working bi-partisanly with Democrats.
Now that’s sad but it’s funny!
