As Election 2012 nears and Democrats increasingly come under fire for their tyrannical, job-killing war on the free market (as I have detailed here), they are quickly having to switch gears and delay implementing their more “costly and controversial” attacks on the economy until after the election.
From USA Today (first seen on The Blaze):
The pace of regulations issued by the Obama administration is receding as the nation’s economy falters and the 2012 election approaches.
Several of the most expensive and controversial rules — to protect the food supply, reduce exposure to silica dust, require rear-view cameras or other devices on cars, and more — remain under review by the White House long after they were expected to be published.
Advocates for the environment, health and safety say the delay signals an effort by the administration to reconsider the economic and political impacts of its actions, in light of the struggling economy and the 2010 midterm elections that empowered Republicans.
Utter hopelessness, total national bankruptcy, and their relentless attacks on small business owners (which daring to point out apparently now somehow makes you a racist) are uniting the American people against the left and its radical agenda like never before (as I recently noted here).
Additionally, this is not the first time Democrats have been caught trying to conceal the disastrous effects of their policies until after a major election. They have also recently been called out by the Government Accountability Office for deliberately delaying Obamacare’s drastic, wildly unpopular Medicare cuts until after November.
And it is far from the first time they have been caught trying to doctor or manufacture the evidence to keep or gain power (as I have noted here, here, here).
