Nassau, Bahamas: Today Stephen Wrinkle, president of the Bahamian Contractors Association (BCA), was out like most Republican spokespersons, warning the public what is possible if Obama became President of the United States.
Today Americans are voting on long lines some in rainy weather to cast their ballots to elect a new president. Democrats are hoping that their candidate Barack Obama, the first black African American to receive the party’s nomination, will win tonight’s historic election. And Republicans hope their candidate, war hero John McCain would clinch the win after a uphill battle over the last two years.
However, as Bahamas Press favors Barack Obama, we could not help but respond to Wrinkle’s comments today on Love 97FM. The contractor who had much negative talk about an OBAMA PRESIDENCY had little to say about the current situation. Wrinkle mysteriously avoided the fact that UNDER THE REPUBLICANS THE WORLD HAS SPUN INTO RECESSION.
WRINKLE, the now OVER USED SPOKESMAN ON EVERYTHING, who has little experience on anything, forgot to mention that in the last eight years, George Bush [Who has endorsed McCain] has entered two wars, running the American national debt to $10 TRILLION, more than the last 24 presidents of the United States combine.
Wrinkle seems to dismiss the fact that not only McCain is in trouble, but also over 13 Senate seats, held by Republican candidates who will also lose tonight.
Wrinkle also mysteriously forgot that he had NOT A VOICE IN THIS TOWN, BECAUSE under Christie’s PLP government, contractors were all over this country working OVERTIME! Some construction workers worked for 22 hours, trying to complete construction projects, from Abaco in the north, to Inagua in the south and every island in between. But suddenly under Hubert Ingraham, every contractor today has workers out of work. And even he [Wrinkle] has more time for the WUTLESS media!
And Wrinkle forgot to mention that it was Hubert Ingraham and NOT Barack Obama who stopped over $90 Million in capital construction projects earmarked for this country. Ingraham stopped and TERMINATED developments in the pipeline, putting out-of-work thousands of masons, carpenters, tile layers, plumber, painters and electricians. With scores of service workers, today now unemployed, further crippling our economy.
Members of the WUTLESS media should accept that if Wrinkle cannot assess how his own construction business here in the Bahamas, how in the world could he assess the political developments now unfolding in the United States? For us, Wrinkle’s advise on OBAMA is like a peanut boy trying to explain the procedures of a heart transplant. Wrinkle is another FALSE AUTHORITY on an OBAMA presidency. How can a construction worker claim that it would get worse UNDER OBAMA, when under Bush/McCain he is out of a JOB?
But you know, empty barrels always make the MOST NOISE!
