You need to know what the “Storyteller-in-Chief” said before I can start expose the demon-possession behind the words. So here it is:
Obama: Biggest mistake was failing to ‘tell a story’ to American public
Posted by David Nakamuraat 05:27 PM ET, 07/12/2012
As he campaigns for re-election, President Obama is ruminating over the biggest mistake of his first term — and it might surprise supporters and critics alike.
In the president’s view, he has not been a good enough storyteller, putting policy goals ahead of laying out a clear narrative for the American public.
“The mistake of my first term. . .was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important,” Obama told “CBS This Morning” anchor Charlie Rose in a White House interview that will be broadcast Sunday and Monday.
“But the nature of this office,” the president added, “is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”
Mitt Romney made sure Obama’s chin was at precisely the correct angle when he responded:
“President Obama believes that millions of Americans have lost their homes, their jobs and their livelihood because he failed to tell a good story. Being president is not about telling stories. Being president is about leading, and President Obama has failed to lead. No wonder Americans are losing faith in his presidency.”
Even to cast Obama’s latest “storytelling” in its very best possible light, what Obama is really saying is that his policies are wonderful, but the American people are simply too damn stupid to understand it.
Give me a little time to warm up as I provide my own response to Obama, because I’ve got a lot to say on my way to past-the-boiling-point.
It’s amazing. This is a man who will never understand that his policies have failed. He has already doubled-down – having first rammed through his $862 stimulus (which will actually cost the American people $3.27 TRILLION) and then doubled-down with his $447 billion son of stimulus - and now he wants to triple-down, quadruple down, quintuple down, until America is utterly bankrupt.
Obama demonized Republicans for refusing to vote for his massive stimulus. He called them “obstructionists” who dared to resist the will of messiah who would lower the oceans and heal the planet.
Consider this from The Hill, 02/15/10:
Republicans are keen to tie any new jobs efforts to a stimulus bill that has become unpopular. A New York Times/CBS poll found that just 6 percent of Americans believe that it created jobs, even though independent economists estimate that it has saved or created more than 1 million jobs.
What The Hill refuses to tell you is that plenty of “independent economists” predicted it would wildly fail:
Cato has just published a full-page ad in the New York Times with the names of some 200 economists, including some Nobel laureates and other highly respected scholars, who “do not believe that more government spending is a way to improve economic performance” — contrary to widespread claims that “Economists from across the political spectrum agree” on a massive fiscal stimulus package.
But let’s get back to the fact that only 6% of Americans believed the $3.27 trillion Stimulus actually created any jobs. Understand, that comes from a CBS/New York Times Poll that featured the following:
Obama was a “storyteller,” all right. But the thing was his stories were lies. Obama’s economic plan has wildly failed. According to Obama’s “storytelling,” unemployment ought to be 5.6 percent now because that’s what he said it would be by this time if we passed his stimulus. That was his “story.”
Obama, of course, once started on the “storytelling” that the Republicans were “obstructionists” never quit telling that story. It didn’t matter that Democrats COMPLETELY OWNED ALL THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT FOR THE ENTIRE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE OBAMA REGIME. It didn’t matter that in fact Democrats had owned two of the three branches – both the House and the Senate – since November 2006 when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid took over Congress. It didn’t matter that since Democrats took over Congress food stamp dependency has soared 70 percent and under Obama crippling poverty and food stamp dependency has skyrocketed 53 percent (3o million in 2008 to 46 million now). If the Republican Party didn’t go along with the Democrat Party’s and messiah Obama’s radical failure and misery they were “obstructionists” even when their “obstructionism” clearly did not prevent the Obama agenda from being implemented.
Obama had previously sold a different “story,” mind you. Prior to his being the most demagogic and hatemongering president in American history, Obama’s “storytelling” had been of a president whose “core promise” – instead of constant fingerpointing and demonizing – would be to ”transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.” But again, as we found immediately, Obama’s “storytelling” was a complete and utter lie from hell. We see that particularly now, as Obama relies more on negative ads to demonize and attack and “frame” Mitt Romney with lies and hate than ANY president in American history by far and away (see also here). In fact, Obama is shattering his own record for negative demagogic demonic attack ads that he himself set in 2008. And that is, of course, because of his wildly failed presidency and his wildly failing record.
That solemn promise that Obama made to the American people that he would rise above the negativity and bitterness and partisanship and hate was itself nothing but the most hateful “story” ever told by the most cynical demagogue ever to hold office.
Obama had PLENTY of “storytelling” with his ObamaCare takeover of the American health care system.
STEPHANOPOULOS: I wanted to check for myself. But your critics say it is a tax increase.
OBAMA: My critics say everything is a tax increase. My critics say that I’m taking over every sector of the economy. You know that. Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we’re going to have an individual mandate or not, but…
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you reject that it’s a tax increase?
OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion.
STEPHANOPOULOS: “Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?”
PRESIDENT OBAMA: “No. That’s not true, George. The — for us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase.
The Supreme Court literally rewrote ObamaCare to replace the word “tax” with Obama’s cynical and dishonest political ”storytelling” of “mandate” and ruled that ObamaCare could ONLY be seen as “constitutional” if and ONLY if it was in fact a TAX. From the Supreme Court majority decision:
“The Federal Government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance. Section 5000A would therefore be unconstitutional if read as a command. The Federal Government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance. Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax.”
Obama has – after “storytelling” that ObamaCare was NOT a tax and then demanding his lawyers argue before the Supreme Court that it WAS a tax – now returned to his “storytelling” that it isn’t a tax no matter what the hell the Supreme Court said. I mean, after all, they’re not “constitutional scholars” the way messiah Obama is. And the Supreme Court Justices certainly aren’t “storytellers” the way Obama is. Few people can ever become that rabidly personally dishonest.
But let me perfectly clear, because I know you’ll hear the same old claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people: if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.
But here is the fact according to the CBO: Seventy-five percent of ObamaCare TAXES will fall on those making less than $120,000 a year:
“no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix what’s broken and build on what works.”
That was, of course, quite a story. It was also quite a demonic lie. Fully 83% of doctors are seriously considering quitting medicine because of demonic Obama’s “fixing what’s broken and building on what works.”
83 Percent of Doctors have Considered Quitting over Obamacare
by SALLY NELSON July 10, 2012
Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.
The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.
And Obama’s “storytelling” wasn’t just a lie about doctors. He lied about being able to keep your health care plan, too:
Now, even the Administration admits that this isn’t the case, stating that “as a practical matter, a majority of group health plans will lose their grandfather status by 2013.”
Another “story,” another damn lie. I guess Obama’s “storytelling” didn’t include things as silly as “practical matters.”
I can go on and on and on and on with this demon-possessed liar and his demonic “storytelling.” He demonized Bush over Gitmo and promised the American people that he would close it down within one year of the start of his presidency. But his “storytelling” was an abject lie and Gitmo is still open because Bush was right in opening Gitmo and Obama is from hell. Obama demonized Bush with “storytelling” about Bush’s use of rendition to deal with terrorists. But four years later, guess what? Bush was right about rendition and Obama was a “storyteller.” Obama slandered Bush with “storytelling” about Bush “air raiding villages and killing civilians.” He has air-raided more villages and killed more civilians than Bush could have waved a stick at. Obama told “stories” about how Bush messed up the world and all the terrorism and violence were Bush’s fault. Four years later I yearn for the world that Bush created, with Syria in flames and the regime getting their WMD ready for use while Egypt turns to the Islamic Brotherhood for leadership and Iran will have a nuclear damn bomb any day now. Obama gave us one “story” after another on how he was going to win the war in Afghanistan and that Afghanistan was where Bush should have been fighting all along. Now we’re doing everything possible to crawl out of that country with our tails between our legs in a way that won’t interfere with Obama’s re-election. On the domestic front, Obama gave us “storytelling” about how Bush was a failed leader for raising the debt ceiling and literally un-American for increasing the debt when he’s blown Bush away on both categories. Obama offered “storytelling” about how he would cut the deficit in HALF by now when he has now produced FOUR budgets – the first four budgets in the history of the entire human race – that exceeded $1 trillion. Obama offered us “storytelling” that his ObamaCare would only cost $900 billion; now the CBO is saying the damn demonic turd will cost three times that much at $2.6 TRILLION and the criminally insane boondoggle STILL HASN’T EVEN BEEN IMPLEMENTED YET. Obama told Hispanic groups the “story” of how giving them what they wanted would be un-American, anti-democratic and unconstitutional to give them what they demanded only to literally do what he had previously said was un-American, anti-democratic and unconstitutional.
Because storytelling = lying to this dishonorable weasel.
And for Obama to tell you the damn STORY that he hasn’t told you enough “stories” amounts to his saying that he failed to understand how pathologically stupid you people were. BECAUSE HE SHOULD HAVE LIED TO YOU MORE THAN HE ALREADY HAS.
We are going on four years into God damn America now. And God will surely continue to damn this nation that was once “under God” more and more and more until Obama is either driven out of office or until we simply collapse under the weight of our failed and demonic policies.
