Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor

he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. Proverbs 21:13 KJV


Georgie, what you did to everybody excepting your cronies and minions has finally come around to bite you in the ass.

When you talk about the economy, markets crash.

When you meet with world leaders at the G20, they are deliberately vague and uncommitted as they hold out for the next president.

When you speak, people realize they've gotten used to hearing complex sentence structures with multisyllabic words debating profoundly difficult situations spoken by a quick and intelligent mind. You can't leave the White House soon enough.

People can see clearly now you've gutted the Treasury for your glutinous corporate friends; you've shredded the Constitution you swore on the Bible to protect; you started a vanity war in which the blood of innocents is being shed. Whatever you've put your hand to, you've ruined.

And now we're going to be poor. Poor in a way that Americans have not experienced since 1929. Poor because you and your cronies really didn't give a shit about the people you had sworn to protect.

We'll survive this as we have with other market crashes, but the real person who's impoverished is you, George. You had the chance to be great. You had the chance to lead when we would have sacrificed and followed you without question. You had the chance to show what Americans can do in adversity and strife.

And you threw it away.

You are the really poor one, Mr. President.
