If you were near in Bossier City, La the other day you would have seen an extra twinkling in the night sky over VFW Post Post 5951. That twinkle was just the ever-present Fairy of Stupidity spreading his stupid dust over Senator Mary Landrieu. And the dust worked very well on Landrieu, maybe too well.
As told by Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Andre E. Dean in the Shreveport Times Landrieu was at the VFW to answer questions from veterans when:
An older veteran stood up toward the middle of the meeting and expressed to her his deep sadness and concern with the massive and constantly growing American debt ($16.9 trillion today and $5.6 trillion in 2000) and the crippling cost to taxpayers to pay for the staggering interest on that debt.
...I was stunned to then hear my Louisiana senator defend the massive U.S. debt saying: “That is not true, sir! We do not have an increasing national debt! For the past six to seven years we have been continuously driving that debt down and reducing it and it is NOT increasing.”Poor Senator Landrieu, it is so obvious the stupid fairy's dust has made her lose all touch with reality. She should know that George W. Bush increased the national debt by a record $5 trillion dollars during the eight years he was in the White House. Heck when W. Bush was running for reelection she blasted him for it;
She then went on to explain the federal costs of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security as “non-negotiable mandates by law that cannot be changed” and explained that only a small portion of the federal budget was in discretionary spending, where she was working with others in the Senate to further reduce our nation’s debt.
He’s run up one of the largest debts in history, one of the largest deficits in history. That is bad for business, and it’s unsettling to Americans who like to see our government run in a very conservative, financially conservative manner, and I think they believe, Judy, they deserve that. … It’s that he’s proposing these things with no attempt to pay for them and leaving the debt to be paid for by our children. This election is going to be, in large measure, about that issue. (CNN’s, “Inside Politics, 4/6/04)The dust from the Stupid Fairy must have made Landrieu forget that Obama has overtaken Bush's record even though he has spent only four and a half years in office so far. Obama has been increasing the debt by almost $7 trillion dollars and it increases every day (it's been in all the papers).
Please feel bad for Senator Mary Landrieu because her recent stupidity is not her fault but the fault of a little fairy dust. It has to be the fairy....It isn't possible for a US Senator to be that misinformed without stupid dust, is it?
