Fail Blog: Central Planning Edition

Consider the track record of the Central-Planner-In-Chief:

• The results of the ill-fated $787 "Stimulus" package?


• The First-time Home Buyers' Tax Credit?

• Nationalizing GM and Chrysler, while abrogating bankruptcy laws to reward major campaign contributors like the union bosses?

• Allowing the Treasury Department (a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldman Sachs) and the Federal Reserve to artificially and illegally prop up the country's "too-big-to-fail" banks?

• Attempting a takeover of 17% of the economy through creation of a government-run health care system?

You'd have thought the fall of the Soviet Union would have taught the would-be central planners the futility of Politburo-style orchestration of the economy.

But, then, you'd be thinking rationally, unlike the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Democrats who are -- intentionally or not -- destroying the American economy.

Remember their outrageous failures. And vote accordingly in 2010.
