Tiahrt rips Obama for trying to fix the economy, which he hopes will fail

Rep. Todd Tiahrt is among those who have jumped the Republican Herbert Hoover bandwagon on doing nothing about he economy and tearing into President Barack Obama for trying to fix it.
According to The Wichita Eagle:

“President Obama’s year-old economic stimulus package has created one industry — that of stimulus criticism, noted Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. He counted Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, among those “who have used the measure to build an assembly line of press releases,” quoting a Tiahrt release declaring that “the only thing the Obama stimulus plan has accomplished is building a bigger government.”

Of course Tiahrt has no plan to fix joblessness and homelessness himself. He and the other Republicans are taking a delight in grid-locking congress and keeping the new president from getting anything done at all. Their plan seems to be to keep the president lock in a position where he can accomplish nothing….that is to say, no health reform, no success on fixing the economy, no action of any kind to fix the problems we are in. They will keep the white house impotent until the next presidential elections, in which the figure to win by default,
The have no program or plan of their own to fix the economy. That doesn’t matter. They seem to take it for granted that people will vote out a president that they have rendered ineffective. They have offered nothing new themselves. They strictly tear down what any one else tries to do and they blather on about budget deficits that our children will inherit. They are following the likes of Herbert Hoover, who was voted out of office for doing nothing about the economy and showing indifference to the poor. He was voted out and his philosophy was completely discredited. And strangely enough today’s Republicans think they can win with this philosophy. Given their success at convincing people there is no global warming, this latest strategy is no surprise. The evidence for that phenomenon, global warming, is overwhelming and yet these politicians and their black-shirts, the Tea Baggers, have convinced people not to worry that polar ice caps are melting.

Herbert Hoover and Tiahrt- Prosperity is just around the corner—just trust us.
