The liberal Democrats in New Hampshire have sunk to a new low. They are smearing a private citizen in the press because he opposes the Obama-Pelosi agenda. I’ve never really seen anything like it, but I fear it is emblematic of what will happen to other small business owners who are suffering from Obama’s policies.
Last Thursday I held a press conference in my race for Congress in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District with a gentleman named Alan Silberberg, whose auto dealership was shut down arbitrarily by Chrysler, Obama’s “car czar” and his “Auto Task Force.” The purpose of the press conference was to demonstrate how Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and my Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s policies are destroying our economy.
It’s important to know that Alan wasn’t shut down because his business was failing. He was shut down because the government’s policies put his business on the chopping block without transparency and without accountability. To let people know how he felt, Alan painted a sign on his storefront that reads, “This business now closed because of Obama’s economics.”
The New Hampshire Dems, who never miss a chance to bad-mouth a critic of Obama’s socialist monstrosity, gave a press release, stating that, “the New Hampshire Business Review Magazine called Silberberg’s claims an “over simplification,” adding that Chrysler sold fewer cars every successive year since 1999, except for 2004 and 2005, was an “industry dinosaur,” and “headed for failure.” (NHBR, 6/18/2010)
So there. Nyah, nyah, nyah.
Except for the fact that GM was shutting down dealerships regardless of profit-making status.
And apparently, Obama carelessly coerced General Motors and Chrysler to close more than 2,000 dealerships, costing tens of thousands of jobs, as a condition of government aid.
Fuckin’ Dems. Deterioration, thanks to Obamanomics, happens right before their eyes and they still deny it.
