Scandals Undercut Obama Re-Election Message

Scandals Undercut Obama Re-Election Message; Bio Battle: Rick from Paint Creek Versus Willard from Bloomfield Hills

Third Scandal Drags on Obama Campaign

“The optics of a Solyndra default will be bad… The timing will likely coincide with the 2012 campaign season heating up.”

– Prophetic Jan. 31 email from an official in the White House Office of Management and Budget released Thursday by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

First there was Fast and Furious, then there was Solyndra and now there is LightSquared — three high-level scandals that involve allegations of cover-ups inside the Obama administration.

For a president who is already dragging an unpopular agenda and low marks on his handling of the economy along the campaign trail, this scandal troika is seriously bad news.

Obama is working desperately to prove to voters that he’s more interested in getting results than playing politics. He took a break from his series of campaign stops in battleground states (Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, back to Ohio next week) on Thursday and was wooing big-dollar donors in Washington. He explained that while it might look like he is engaged in his own re-election campaign, his is merely involved in “governance” by working to pass a new stimulus package.

“There’s a time for governance and there’s a time for making a political case,” Obama told donors. “My hope is, is that we’re going to keep on seeing some governance out of Washington over the next several months, because the American people can’t afford to wait for an election to actually see us start doing something serious about our jobs.”

This is a central part of Obama’s 2012 political pitch: That he is above politics, while his adversaries are unpatriotically grubbing for votes.

It takes chutzpah to make that case in the midst of a swing-state tour and at a dinner for political donors, but it’s an argument that Obama relied on during his remarkable political rise. It is understandable that he would want to use the same tool now that he is seeking to revive his fortunes.

The scandals, though, make the task harder.

The latest one involves confidential testimony from Gen. William Shelton, head of the Air Force’s Space Command, whom congressional sources say told a House Armed Services subcommittee that he was pressured to change his prepared remarks in a way that would benefit a major Democratic donor.

Philip Falcone is one of the big backers of LightSquared, a telecommunications company that wants to develop a nationwide satellite phone network. Falcone is a billionaire hedge-fund manager who is known as “the Midas of misery” for his skills at exploiting economic failure. He is also a big political campaign contributor, usually to Democrats.

His LightSquared venture requires federal authorization because of concerns that it would interfere with the satellite-driven GPS system that guides the U.S. military. Shelton reportedly said he was pressured to change his conclusion that the LightSquared plan was too risky. If the plan is nixed, Falcone and his partners stand to lose big.

A motive for trying to get Shelton to shade his testimony might also be found in the fact that the Obama administration has long been pushing for the idea of a national wireless broadband system, the very thing that Falcone and Co. are selling. If the generals say no to LightSquared it could permanently derail the pet project. But the involvement of a Democratic donor casts the pall of cronyism on the whole mess.

Only three entities review a general’s prepared testimony: Department of Defense, the White House, and the Office Management and Budget, so Shelton’s accusation is potent stuff.

This comes as new emails reveal that White House officials who were supposed to be vetting failed solar panel maker Solyndra, also run by a major Democratic donor, for a half-billion-dollar subsidized loan were very much interested in “optics” and political ramifications of their decisions.

Politics were at play when the White House revived the idea that had been tabled during the Bush administration and at play again as Obama officials fretted over how to manage the firm’s collapse in the least damaging way for the president’s re-election.

As evidence piles up in the Solyndra case, new details continue to emerge on the Fast and Furious probe that show a much larger scale for the Justice Department’s botched gunrunning sting, which encouraged illegal gun trafficking to drug gangs and then lost track of the weapons.

Here, there is no claim of cronyism, but there is the strong allegation from Republicans in Congress that the administration has withheld details of the operation now linked to the murder of a Border Patrol agent and other crimes in order to spare the administration further political embarrassment.

As Obama works to revive his brand as a man beyond petty politics, these three slow-burning political scandals will continue to undercut his claim.

It’s not really just “three” scandals.  ObamaCare itself and the 1,200 waivers of this unconstitutional takeover - whatever happened to equal treatment under the law? – as well as  its highly likely overturning as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court is a scandal; Obama’s treasonous reaction to that likely decision is a scandal; Obama’s tendency to demonize the other co-equal branches of government like a fascist dictator thug wannabe is a scandal; Obama’s close relationship with Jon Corzine and MF Global and over a billion dollars stolen by crony capitalist vultures is a scandal; skyrocketing gas prices are a scandal; Obama’s shocking labor participation rate and the 88 million Americans who have given up trying to find work under his failed regime is a scandal;  Obama’s incredibly failed and despicable budgets are a scandal; the fact that housing is the worst since the Great Depression and the poor have been utterly screwed by Obama’s failed policies is a scandal; the fact that poverty is the highest in the fifty-two years it has been measured is a scandal; the fact that that just ONE MONTH of Obama’s deficit is FIFTY PERCENT HIGHER THAN THE ENTIRE YEARS’ DEFICIT UNDER GOP RULE is a scandal;  the fact that it has now been 1,086 days since the Democrats have bothered to pass a budget is a scandal; the fact that Obama’s real unemployment rate is actually over NINETEEN PERCENT is a scandal; the fact that Obama has destroyed jobs and will CONTINUE to destroy jobs is a scandal; Obama’s demonizing George Bush over his debt ceiling extension before demanding the THREE LARGEST DEBT CEILING HIKES IN HUMAN HISTORY is a scandal; Obama’s demonizing George Bush over his debt when Obama has now spent far more in far less time is a scandal; Obama cutting and running from Afghanistan after all of his bogus promises is a scandal; Obama’s inflation is a scandal; the fact that Obama’s $862 billion stimulus ended up being an abject failure resulting in his demanding yet ANOTHER FAILED STIMULUS is a scandal.  Obama’s promise to transcend the political divide only to become the worst demagogue this nation has ever seen is a scandal; Obama promising unprecedented transparency only to actually give us unprecedented cover-up and secrecy is a scandal.

Which amendment to the Constitution is Obama’s very favorite?  Clearly the 5th, which allows his fascist cronies to deny responsibility for all the crimes they committed doing Obama’s thug bidding:

Oh, and Obama’s numerous Abu Ghraib moments are scandals; particularly given that there is a new Abu Ghraib moment todayObama’s unconstitutional power-grab in making “recess appointments” WHEN THE SENATE WAS NOT IN RECESS is a scandal that is now coming back like one of Jeremiah Wright’s chickens to roost.

But who’s counting???  Certainly not the mainstream media propaganda machine.

Let’s just keep letting the man who promised America that he wouldn’t make excuses to continue to make more excuses:

“Yes We Can” implode America.  And blame Bush for it even four years after Bush last had anything to do with the White House.

Obama Says Bush Increasing Debt $4 Trillion In 8 Years Was Irresponsible And Unpatriotic. So Obama Increasing Debt By $6 Trillion In 3 Years Is WHAT?

December 29, 2011

Here are Obama’s own demagogic and frankly demonic words:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

And:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Why doesn’t Obama resign?  Because in his own words “Americans deserve better” than him.

$30,000 for every man, woman and child?  Boy, that would seem really bad.  Unless the worst president in the history of the human race didn’t come along and make it over $50,000 for every man, woman and child.

Under Obama, the debt is nearly $15.2 trillion.  But that aint nothing: because Barry Hussein is demanding yet another debt ceiling hike for yet another $1.2 trillion:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House plans to ask Congress by the end of the week for an increase in the government’s debt ceiling to allow the United States to pay its bills on time, according to a senior Treasury Department official on Tuesday.

[...]

The debt limit currently stands at $15.194 trillion and would increase to $16.394 trillion with the request.

Hmm.  $9 trillion…. $16 trillion.  Which one is a more irresponsible, unpatriotic failure of leadership???  Gosh, I vote Democrat so I’m just too…. insane … and stupid… to know…

Feeling…. weak…  Must… blame… Bush…

And there: now we Democrats – having healed ourselves – feel much better now.  Because that “blame Bush” pill cures everything.  Except reality.  But why should we care about that?

If there was so much as a shred of honesty or decency in Barack Obama, in the Democrat Party, or in anyone who votes for the Democrat Party, they would do the only honorable thing and just go away and leave decent Americans alone.

I hear North Korea is real nice.  And it’s a “People’s republic,” too.  With a brand spanking new dear leader messiah.  You libs will like it just fine.

Someone commenting on the latest debt ceiling hike (which now makes Obama responsible for the THREE highest debt celing hikes in the history of the entire human race) asked a question.  And then he answered it:

“Where does this end? When does this stop? I guess when there is no more money to take from us and then the riots start.”

Looking at the vile crap that went on in Wisconsin and then the even MORE vile crap that took place all over the country in the Occupy riots, it looks like we’re already there…

Another made an even sadder observation:

Greece. Italy. Spain. America. Pathetic.

We voted to collapse when we voted for Obama; and we are getting EXACTLY what we voted for.

On December 31 of this year, Democrats will demonstrate that they are the Party of genuine depravity and utterly reckless stupidity in America - having gone 975 days without bothering to pass ANY budget WHATSOEVER.

Obama Proven To Be An Unpatriotic Traitor By His Own Lying And Demagogic Rhetoric

August 25, 2011

It’s past time to demonize a genuine demon.

It’s past time to demagogue a true hypocrite demagogue.

It’s past time to call out an unpatriotic fool for the traitor that he is.

It’s past time the American people got to see their president for the ugliness of his 2008 campaign and the ugliness of his soul right now.

The title of the CBS news story dated August 23rd tells us that Barack Hussein just passed a milestone:

National debt has increased $4 trillion under Obama
By Mark Knoller

The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch.

The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.

It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during Mr. Obama’s four-year term.

Barack Obama is a national disgrace.  He became president by cynically making completely false promises during a time when Americans naively believed his hollow rhetoric.

Here’s what this Liar in Chief said in 2008 when he demonized George Bush:

Here is the transcript of his words:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

Well, tune in today when Obama has spent $4 trillion not in two terms, but in just 2 1/2 years.  Tune in to a man who is now a documented traitor by his own demagogic rhetoric.

What is UNPATRIOTIC is Barack Hussein Obama.

Hot Air points out the abject hypocrisy that is quintessential to Barack Obama’s cockroach character:

And what exactly has Obama done as President? Despite claiming that he has known that deficit reduction has been needed since the first day he took office, Obama has offered no deficit reduction proposals in his term as President. In fact, he has submitted budget proposals that have massively expanded deficit spending.

Just how patriotic is that? After all, if Obama can use the increase in the national debt to question Bush’s patriotism, doesn’t it follow that increasing deficit spending by 152% per month makes Obama 152% more “unpatriotic” than Bush?

And there is more to say, of course.  Because Barack Obama is a demagogue and a cynical liar to his core.

What did this lying fearmongering demagogue say of George Bush when Bush needed to increase the debt ceiling?

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Obama is a completely failed leader.  And part of that failed leadership is a pathological inability to accept responsibility for his own presidency.  He is trying as we speak to blame Republicans for the debt ceiling fiasco when HE IS NEARLY COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

Replay the core promise of Obama’s presidency in the words of the New York Times in your mind and in your heart:

WASHINGTON — At the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is a promise that he can transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.

To achieve the change the country wants, he says, “we need a leader who can finally move beyond the divisive politics of Washington and bring Democrats, independents and Republicans together to get things done.”

But this promise leads, inevitably, to a question: Can such a majority be built and led by Mr. Obama, whose voting record was, by one ranking, the most liberal in the Senate last year?

You need to finally understand the truth: the mainstream media is nothing more than leftist propaganda.  They lied to you from the start about Barack Obama.  Unless calling George Bush unpatriotic because he did something that Obama has now done three times worse is “finally moving beyond the divisive politics of Washington” and “bringing Democrats and Republicans together” and “ending the partisan and ideological wars.”

Maybe your soul is so diseased that you think that Joe Biden was doing those things when he demonized the Tea Party Republicans by saying, “They have acted like terrorists.”   Maybe your soul has become so cockroach like that you still believe those lies when Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said “The Tea Party can go straight to hell.  And I intend to help them get there.”  Maybe you are so genuinely depraved that you think Democrats are trying to reach out for the common good when Frederica Wilson says:

Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party,” Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said at a Miami town hall, according to The Hill. “The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

Maybe you are so diseased in your soul – and so ideologically rabid – that you believe the talking point that somehow the Republicans who stood by the values that saw them win massively in 2010 are “terrorists who are holding America hostage.”    Instead of revealing in every way imaginable that Barack Obama and the modern Democrat Party are the most divisive and polarizing instruments in our national history.

Please regain your capacity to actually think and morally reason.  Republicans were demonized during the debt ceiling negotiations for holding positions that were virtually identical to the demagogic lies that Obama told.  When Obama said reckless spending was a “failure of leadership,” what he meant as a cynical talking point is actually a conservative article of faith: it IS a failure of leadership to do what Obama swore he wouldn’t do but has in fact done three times worse than the man he demonized.  When Obama disingenuously said that it was “unpatriotic” to borrow trillions of dollars from China on a credit card our children will have to pay off, what he said cynically to get elected is something that conservatives believe to be true.  And essentially what Obama and the Democrats are saying to Republicans now is, “You guys are traitors for believing the same stuff we cynically said to manipulate the American people to vote for us in 2008.

Republicans openly admit they spent too much when they ran things prior to 2006.  Republican House leader Eric Cantor said:

“And basically, the sense of the ‘Pledge to America’ is this: Republicans understand when we were in charge, we got fired in ’06. We spent too much money. We defied the trust that the people had put in us. And we know that there is a better way.”

House Majority leader John Boehner admitted, “For the last decade, we’ve spent more money than we take in.”  Many of those years were years that Republicans were in control.  And Republicans admit they made mistakes even as they vow they will not make those same mistakes AGAIN.

Having admitted that it is a fact that Republicans spent too much when they ran Congress before January 2007 (when Democrats took over and proceeded to systematically run America into the ground), let’s also point out the FACT that Republicans didn’t spend ANYTHING LIKE DEMOCRATS’ INSANE SPENDING.  And The Republican-controlled Congress’ last budget had a deficit of $162 billion.  Compared to the $1.65 TRILLION deficit this year, the  2010 budget that had a $1.6 TRILLION deficit, the 2009 budget that had a $1.42 TRILLION deficit.

Another way to put it is this: Republicans are demanding that Democrats be what they falsely promised the American people they would be and do what they falsely promised the American people they would do.

If you want a proven liar and a proven demagogue, vote for Obama.  Because that is all you’re going to get.

Obama Puts His Re-Election Over Welfare Of Nation By Demanding Long-Term Debt Ceiling Extension As Condition For Deal

July 29, 2011

Obama came out demanding a debt ceiling hike with no strings attached, no spending cuts, lots of taxes and one that would go beyond November 2012 to keep his presidency safe.

At this point, he is going to get none of those things.

Obama wants a long-term debt ceiling extension. What needs to be understood is that:

Over the last 40 years, there have been 37 separate debt limit increases that last 6 months or less, and never once has the federal government ultimately defaulted on its debt. Meanwhile, the $2.4 trillion increase President Obama is seeking represents the largest single debt hike in history, and, quite conveniently, it kicks the can down the road past both his and Senator Nelson’s re-election bids next year.

Obama himself underscored this fact when he said during his incredibly demagogic address to the nation on July 25:

“President Reagan did it [i.e. raised the debt ceiling] 18 times.”

Well, do the math yourself. What is 8 years divided by 18? That’s 96 months divided by 18, or about once every five months.

As I already pointed out, Democrats forced Ronald Reagan to come to them an average of every five months and nine days to plead for another debt ceiling extension. And the Obama argument that not giving him a long-term extension now is simply factually untrue. Every single president has done it over and over and over again without catastrophe; how is Obama’s presidency so weak and so incompetent that he now absolutely must have what they did not need???

The answer comes down to one simple thing: Obama’s presidency has been an unmitigated disaster. He has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER positive to run on. He certainly has nothing positive to say about himself in this debt ceiling fiasco, having never ONCE come out with any kind of plan or demonstrated any kind of leadership whatsoever.  While the nation has sunk into this debt ceiling crisis, Obama has been doing an average of a campaign event every three days.  So you can see where his priorities are.

Obama is a pure demagogue.  What did he say to George Bush in 2006, when he joined EVERY SINGLE OTHER DEMOCRAT IN THE SENATE IN VOTING FOR A DEBT CEILING INCREASE FOR GEORGE BUSH?

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” he said. “It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

Obama needs to resign from office as a completely failed leader.  Why should Republicans treat him one iota better than the vindictive way he treated Bush over the same issue???

Every single Democrat who is “outraged and appalled” by the Republicans’ behavior is a hypocrite who ought to be ashamed of himself or herself.

History is on Republicans’ side in every part of this debate.

As for a short-term extension – which Obama selfishly refuses because he doesn’t want this issue to derail his political campaign next year – realize that DEBT EXTENSIONS HAVE BEEN SHORT TERM AFFAIRS FOR THE LAST 40 YEARS.  And why should it be any different for Obama now?

As for the amount Obama seeks “the biggest debt-limit increase in history” whether it is in sheer dollar amount or expressed as a percentage of GDP.  And combined with the long-term extension he is demanding, why the hell SHOULDN’T the Republicans – who ran on cutting spending – not make HUGE demands if it is going to give up such a debt-ceiling increase???

If Democrats want to demagogue Republicans by claiming that they are “holding America hostage” (or whatever their shrill attack is), remind yourself that Barack Obama PERSONALLY used the debt ceiling to demonize George Bush, and that not a single Democrat on the Senate voted for Bush’s debt ceiling increase request in 2006.  How on earth are Republicans not more than justified in holding Obama’s feet to the fire as they seek to stop the fiscal insanity and save our country and our children now???

Finally, how DARE Barack Obama bother to try to run for president again when our nation is in crisis RIGHT NOW and he is AWOL.  Even The New York Times - hardly a source friendly to conservatives – has attacked Barack Obama for “being on the sidelines.”  That article begins with this picture of a White House press corps wondering where the hell their president is while our country faces a crisis:

WASHINGTON — For an hour on Wednesday the White House press secretary, Jay Carney, fielded questions about what, if anything, President Obama was doing to help end the impasse in Congress over the imminent need to raise the nation’s borrowing limit.

The New York Times article proceeds to state that “Mr. Obama is in danger of seeming a spectator at one of the most critical moments of his presidency.”  But he’s not in danger of seeming a spectator; HE IS A SPECTATOR AND THE COUNTRY IS IN DANGER OF HAVING ITS CREDIT RATING YANKED - the effects of which will be devastating across the economy due to higher interest rates for everything.

Obama needs to get a deal done.  And all he’s doing is giving demagogic speeches that further divide a nation that – cynical and deceitful promises to the contary - he has already divided enough.

Hey Obama, Democrats Forcing Reagan To Raise Debt Ceiling 18 Times Actually Makes YOU Look Like Slime

July 26, 2011

Obama pointed out in his incredibly demagogic tirade last night that Ronald Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times.

Raise your hand if you think Ronald Reagan WANTED to raise the debt ceiling 18 times.

You see, Barack Obama thinks you are breathtakingly stupid.  He counts on it, in fact.  And he may be right.  Obama wants to say in passing that Ronald Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times and leave you with the dimwitted impression that the reason Reagan kept raising the debt ceiling is because he was just utterly irresponsible with his spending.

But here’s the question: why did Reagan have to come back to the Democrats with his hat in his hand an average of every five months throughout his entire presidency?

Because Democrats wanted to torment him, that’s why.  Democrats FORCED Reagan to keep coming back again and again and again and again.  You know, the same way they say would be so awful for Republicans to do to Obama now.

Listen to the Democrats attack on Republicans for considering a short term debt ceiling increase like, oh, the Democrats forced on Reagan an average of every single 5 months of his entire presidency:

A senior House Democrat on Monday alleged that Republicans want the short-term debt increase in order to kill the economic recovery and blame President Obama for high unemployment.

House Natural Resources Committee ranking member Edward Markey (D-Mass.) on Monday said that a two-stop approach being weighed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to force another debt-ceiling vote next year was a “cynical” ploy to keep a cloud over the economy.

“The Boehner approach really intends to have another debate next year that is just as big and that’s their point. A big debate this year puts a cloud over the markets and the economic environment, and another debate next year will do the same thing to our economic recovery,” he told a news conference. “So it’s a very cynical, regain-the-majority strategy that puts the entire economy at risk.”

That doesn’t sound very good of those nasty Republicans, does it?

Obama has said he would even veto a short term stopgap bill.  One of the big reasons he wants a longer term bill that will carry him past the November 2012 election is that it will get his reckless spending off the table.  Other than that, he’s right: a longer term deal WOULD help the country have a little more stability, which would be a good thing if we could get it.  That said, I would ask if Obama actually believes such stability and certainty is a good thing, why Obama has refused to allow such similiar certainty and stability in terms of taxes, or regulations, or health care costs, or energy availability, etc.???  Why has the guy been constantly threatening to raise taxes, so people would not be able to be sure what their tax liability would be?  Why is it that there are more than a 120 new regulations being written on employment?  Why does Boeing not get the certainty of knowing the NLRD won’t be out to destroy them for building a plant in a right to work state?  Why are there hundreds of regulations being written for ObamaCare such that NOBODY knows what that mess will look like?  I mean, the “stability’ argument would have been a good one if Obama had applied it to just ONE OTHER THING.  But he didn’t.  Which is why his demand for a long term debt ceiling deal is much more likely entirely political, and to HELL with any other consideration.

Now, I would argue that the primary reason that Republicans are looking at short-term increases is because there isn’t anywhere NEAR enough agreement to have a long-term extension.  Obama wanting tax hikes even after he previously said – and I quote – “You don’t raise taxes during a recession” – might well mean either we have a short-term increase to get us through the immediate crisis or we have NOTHING AT ALL.

But let’s assume that Edward Markey isn’t just a vile lying weasel demagoguing rat bastard and assume he’s pointing out the truth.

So why in the HELL on Democrats’ own tortured reasoning did they torture Ronald Reagan every five months on average????  I’d like Obama to answer that.  If you’re going to cite Reagan raising the debt ceiling 18 times as somehow working in your favor, Barry Hussein, you could at least explain why Republicans shouldn’t force you to come to them and beg to raise the debt ceiling 18 times during YOUR mis-presidency.

And let’s remember that Barack Obama is the worst kind of cynical political opportunist.  Let’s remember how he ripped into George Bush in a vicious personal attack when it was George Bush who needed to raise the debt ceiling:

Barack Hussein:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” he said. “It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

So why the hell shouldn’t Republicans leave you twisting in the wind given your pleasure in watching George Bush twist in the wind?  Why shouldn’t they just let the whole damn economy collapse by acting the same vile way YOU acted, you slime in chief?

How about if we add another major Democrat failure who has been demonizing Republicans over their opposition to the Democrats’ TOTAL ABSENCE OF ANY PLAN to raise the debt ceiling?  What did Harry Reid say when Bush was president and he was the same vile piece of rotten filth Senator he is now?

REID: “If my Republican friends believe that increasing our debt by almost $800 billion today and more than $3 trillion over the last five years is the right thing to do, they should be upfront about it. They should explain why they think more debt is good for the economy.

How can the Republican majority in this Congress explain to their constituents that trillions of dollars in new debt is good for our economy? How can they explain that they think it’s fair to force our children, our grandchildren, our great grandchildren to finance this debt through higher taxes. That’s what it will have to be. Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?

They should explain this. Maybe they can convince the public they’re right. I doubt it. Because most Americans know that increasing debt is the last thing we should be doing. After all, I repeat, the Baby Boomers are about to retire. Under the circumstances, any credible economist would tell you we should be reducing debt, not increasing it.  Democrats won’t be making argument to supper this legalization, which will weaken our country.”

WHY DON’T YOU ANSWER YOUR OWN QUESTIONS NOW, HARRY REID?!?!?!

Why don’t YOU explain why we should NEVER balance our budget like the Republicans want to do with an amendment that will REQUIRE a balanced budget?!?!?  You know, in light of your OWN demagoguery.

You see, the Republicans have publicly said that they spent too much, but they learned their lesson and they want to STOP THE MADNESS.

For hypocrite demagogues like you and Barack Obama, cutting spending is all just talk and posturing.  You want to plunge this country off a cliff, and you’re prepared to demonize anybody who so much as tries to slow you down.

I just thought someone should point out that in Obama’s own demagogic tirade yesterday, he openly acknowledged that his party is a bunch of nasty hypocrite cockroaches by his own standard.

Now, having said that, I think I can also explain why the deficit shot up so much under Reagan’s presidency.  Reagan wanted a balanced budget amendment, saying, for example:

 “Most Americans understand the need for a balanced budget, and most Americans have seen how difficult it is for the Congress to withstand the pressures for more spending. This amendment will force government to stay within the limit of its revenues. Government will have to do what each of us does with our own family budgets – spend no more than we can afford.”

Reagan’s tax cuts actually MASSIVELY INCREASED GOVERNMENT REVENUES.  So why did the debt increase?

Go back to Reagan coming to Democrats with his hat in his hand an average of every five months to increase the debt ceiling and thereby keep the government running.

Republicans want to cut spending.  But what do you think Democrats wanted when Reagan was president?  Democrats wanted to INCREASE spending.  And they were in a position – about every five moths on average for a grand total of 18 times by Obama’s own count – to force Reagan to increase government spending in order to get all those 18 debt ceiling increases every five months or so.

Alternatively, when Bill Clinton was president, the deficit was dramatically reduced.  And why was that?  Because Clinton and Democrats failed so massively the first two years of Clinton’s presidency that Republicans swept into power over both branches of Congress in the historic 1994 Republican Revolution.  And they FORCED Clinton to say “The era of big government is over.”  Republicans began to act on the very first platform of the Contract with America, which called for balancing the budget.  That, and of course, with Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush having just won the Cold War and putting an end to the Soviet Union, Bill Clinton was able to gut the Pentagon and Intelligence agencies budgets (which helped precipitate the 9/11 disaster, for what it’s worth).

When it comes to penetrating Obama’s constant web of demonization and lies, a few facts go a long way indeed.

Don’t Trust Democrats On Debt Negotiations; And Trust Proven Liar Obama EVEN LESS Than Democrats

July 13, 2011

Barack Hussein Obama is a profoundly dishonest and evil man.  That is going to be a major obstacle to debt-ceiling negotiations.  Keep in mind, Democrats have ALREADY lied to Republicans in the past, promising Ronald Regan they would cut spending by $3 for every $1 dollar in tax hikes.  Democrats got their taxes, but then they immediately welched on their committment to reduce spending.  Reagan later said trusting Democrats was the biggest mistake he ever made.

Democrats proceeded to demonstrate that they are dishonest liars again prior to the 1992 elections that saw the end to George H.W. Bush.  Democrats promised that George Bush that they would not make the tax hikes they had coerced from him an election issue if we went along with them; but lo and behold Bush I was brought down by an avalanche of “Read my lips, no new taxes” ads.

Don’t trust Democrats.  They are bad people.  They are dishonest.  They can’t be trusted.  They lie.  Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.  And this would be the THIRD time (at least).

This is the kind of cynical, pathologically dishonest man Republicans are dealing with:

“President Obama had promised that he would not raise taxes on Americans earning under $250,000.  When asked whether the penalty attached to the individual mandate was a tax, President Obama said it was “absolutely not a
tax.” He also said “[n]obody considers [it] a tax increase.” Nevertheless, in an attempt to prevent the court from ruling on the constitutionality of the individual mandate, the Obama Justice Department argued that the penalty was in fact a tax. The Justice Department argument failed because the individual mandate provision was written in a way clearly to avoid using the word “tax.”

An ObamaCare item is absolutely not a tax in any way, shape or form until Obama gets it passed.  Then it becomes a tax.  Because he is a liar and an evil man who cannot possibly be trusted upon to negotiate anything.

Let’s also not forget that ObamaCare already added $500 BILLION in new taxes.  And now Obama wants to add a TRILLION DOLLARS more.

When it comes to the debt celing negotiations, Obama said of raising the debt ceiling as a Democrat Senator with a Republican President:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” he said. “It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

Barack Obama is a dishonest demagogue who doesn’t give a damn about the American people.  And that’s putting it politely.  Only a fool would trust him about anything, let alone a deal involving trillions of dollars in new debt and new taxes.

Barack Obama is talking vaguely about being willing to offer $4 trillion in spending cuts as part of a deal.  But at no time has he ever produced anything even close to resembling a specific concrete proposal.  It’s just a bunch of words from a documented liar.  Where is the Liar-in-Chief’s plan?  If there’s going to be any meaningful negotiation, the least Obama can do is bother to put out a plan on the table.

And when you’re negotiating with Barack Obama, just remember that he’s a liar and a weasel from a party of liars and weasels.

Remember, Raising The Debt Ceiling Is A Failure Of Leadership. Vote No.

May 31, 2011

Democrats say that if Republicans don’t go along with their reckless spending increases, the world will end.

But let’s not forget what the messiah-in-chief lectured us a few years ago:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

And, of course, Americans DO deserve better.  They deserve better than a hypocrite, a demagogue and a disastrous failure.

As I previously pointed out about this:

“America has a debt problem,” Obama said in 2006.  That year, Republicans passed their last budget before losing power to Democrats until this year.  It had a deficit of $161 billion.  The next year the Democrats virtually tripled that deficit to $459 billion.  And in two years of Obama it has soared to $3 TRILLION.

The AP correctly pointed out that “It was a blast by the freshman lawmaker against a Bush request to raise the debt limit to $8.96 trillion.”

It was a personal attack by an evil fool against a president which history now proves knew what he was doing versus the current moral idiot who clearly does not.

That’s right, boys and girls.  The last time a Republican Congress passed a budget, it had a deficit of $161 billion.  And Republicans have been doing mea culpas ever since about their fiscal recklessness.  Meanwhile, the Democrats in Congress have heaped up $5.34 TRILLION MORE in debt – and they do nothing but continue to point the finger at Republicans who actually spent less by a rather silly percentage.

This is a game that has to end.  And now is frankly long past time.

I propose that we treat Obama as though he is/was a sane and honest human being and do what he said:  Vote AGAINST the debt ceiling.  Vote like Obama said we should vote.  Otherwise we should frankly treat Obama as a dishonest fool who needs to resign in disgrace.

And any vote to increase the debt ceiling should be a) temporary (i.e., valid for no more than six months) and b) accompanied by spending cuts that exceed the amount of any increase.

Obama’s ‘Hope And Change’ At Work: Most Americans (Correctly) Believe Our Best Days Are Now Behind Us

April 28, 2011

History reminds us of a time – not all that long ago – when a charismatic leader promised a fundamental transformation that brought hope to a nation.

The leaders’s name was Adolf Hitler.  It didn’t end well.  Seriously.

The kind of fascistic irrationally euphoric Utopian rhetoric of Obama -

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal… This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation …”

- hasn’t seemed to work out very well in the real world.  I mean who talks like that but a fascist demagogue promising a false Utopia, anyway?  Not that most liberals have any clue whatsoever about the real world, mind you.

The evidence is crystal clear that Obama is a fascist and a demagogue.  But the mainstream media is every bit as unlikely to tell the truth about Obama as Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda was likely to tell the truth about their Fuhrer.

The New York Times once said – as part of the irrational fascistic hype surrounding Obama - that:

WASHINGTON — At the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is a promise that he can transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.

Did Obama ever once come close to actually fulfilling that “core presidential promise”???

How about this: within 24 days of Obama assuming the presidency, The Wall Street Journal was rightly able to say this about our “transcending” figure:

President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. First, he did so to win votes in the November election. He has done so again recently to sway congressional votes for his stimulus package

It wasn’t even a month after assuming the presidency that Obama began to dismiss the Republicans he had promised to reach out to:

“Don’t come to the table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped to create this crisis,” he admonished in a speech.

It was barely only a month after assuming the presidency that Obama began to thumb his nose at the Republicans he had promised to reach out to:

 When [Republican Rep. Eric] Cantor tried to justify his own position, Obama responded: “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

Were those really the words that would “transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years”???  In taking that stand, was there actually any chance whatsoever that Obama would “end the partisan and ideological wars”???  Is anyone frankly so morally and intellectually stupid to see these tactics as they way to “build a new governing majority”???

And of course, shortly after the American people rejected Obama in the largest shallacking in modern American history and voted against the Democrat Party in droves, Nancy Pelosi began to further degenerate into fascism (where elections shouldn’t matter unless the fascists win them), saying: “elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do.”

And then we proceeded to see Democrats and liberals behave far more like fascists than people who gave a damn about elections or the consequences of elections in Wisconsin.

I think of the fact that Hitler never won more than 37% of the vote.  But the moment he seized power, “elections didn’t matter as much as they should have.”

Barack Obama is a man who has personally repeatedly demonized George W. Bush, Republicans, entire industries, businesses, and even medical doctors (remember how they amputate people’s feet and yank out their tonsils just to illegitimately profit?).  As a Senator, he personally attacked George Bush for his failure of leadership for having to raise the debt ceiling; now he’s personally attacking anyone who acts as cynically and despicably as he acted.  Obama personally demonized George Bush for trampling on the Constitution for Iraq even though Congress had directly authorized his actions; but this same cynical demagogue would attack Libya without any congressional authorization whatsoever.  Obama lectured Republicans that it hurt the country and the essential political debate to demagogue the other side with health care, only to viciously attack the Republicans the first time he thought it would politically help him to do so.  Rep Ryan – whom he invited to his speech just to single him out for attack – said, “What we got yesterday was the opposite of what [Obama] said is necessary to fix this problem.”  And Obama doesn’t just demonize his opponents; he falsely demonizes his opponents by telling demonstrable lies.

As I said, Obama is a fascist bully and a cynical demagogue.  And yet the mainstream media has the unmitigated chutzpah to continue to insanely depict this cynical, lying, hypocrite demagogue as an inspirational figure.

The American people and the mushroom have something in common: both are kept in the dark and fed manure.

So you can understand why the American people – for all the information available to them – are so terribly ignorant about just what the hell is going on in our political system.

But as misinformed and lied-to as Americans are when it comes to the sea of lies they are presented with as “news,” they are still aware that fewer of them have jobs, fewer of them have homes, their food cost more, their fuel cost more and that the quality of their lives are rapidly slipping away under the policies of a failed president and his failed party.

America’s Best Days
Those Confident That America’s Best Days Lie Ahead Down to 31%
Monday, April 25, 2011

Voter confidence that the nation’s best days are still to come has fallen to its lowest level ever.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that just 31% believe America’s best days are in the future. That’s down three points from last month and is the lowest result found in polling since late 2006.

Fifty-three percent (53%) believe America’s best days are in the past, also the highest measurement in over four years. Sixteen percent (16%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Separate polling finds that only 22% of Likely Voters believe the United States is now heading in the right direction. That ties the lowest level found during Barack Obama’s presidency.

While majorities of Republicans (68%) and voters not affiliated with either major political party (52%) believe America’s best days are in the past, a plurality of Democrats (45%) thinks its best days still lie ahead.

Fifty-eight percent (58%) of white voters believe America’s best days have come and gone, but the same number of black voters (58%) feel the opposite is true.

[...]

And of course, it is true: America’s days truly ARE behind us as long as Barack Hussein Obama and as long as Democrats are able to continue to lead.  Either Democrats will go down, or America will go down.

But, liberals say, it was BUSH who made the economy fail.  Two things: 1) how many years should that line of garbage continue to succeed?  And 2) it was never true to begin with (also see here).

Do you know that Democrats had total control of both the House and the Senate from 2006 until 2010???

George Bush tried SEVENTEEN TIMES to warn Congress that unless we got control of the out-of-control Democrat-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the out-of-control housing and housing mortgage market that it was poisoning with piles of bad debt, our economy would go under.  The problem had festered because Bush had reappointed the first black Fannie Mae CEO because of political correctness.  Franklin Raines was a failure and a corrupt fraud who disguised massive debt.  Further, fearing the same political correctness, Republicans had allowed themselves to be repeatedly stymied in their attempts to reform the Government Sponsored Enterprises Fannie and Freddie as Democrats screamd “racism.”  John McCain was if anything even more clear in 2006 when there was still time to fix the developing crisis.  McCain wrote (in 2006):

Congress chartered Fannie and Freddie to provide access to home financing by maintaining liquidity in the secondary mortgage market. Today, almost half of all mortgages in the U.S. are owned or guaranteed by these GSEs. They are mammoth financial institutions with almost $1.5 Trillion of debt outstanding between them. With the fiscal challenges facing us today (deficits, entitlements, pensions and flood insurance), Congress must ask itself who would actually pay this debt if Fannie or Freddie could not?

McCain asked, “Who would actually pay this massive debt for these incredibly risky liberal policies if Fannie or Freddie could not?’  And we now have the answer to that question, don’t we???

Even the liberal New York Times recognized the threat posed by Fannie and Freddie.  And Peter Wallison all but predicted the collapse as early as 1999:

In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980′s.

From the perspective of many people, including me, this is another thrift industry growing up around us,” said Peter Wallison a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. ”If they fail, the government will have to step up and bail them out the way it stepped up and bailed out the thrift industry.”

 The same Peter Wallison who had predicted the disaster from 1999 wrote a September 23, 2008 article in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Blame Fannie Mae and Congress For the Credit Mess.”

Wallison was 100% correct, and had the FACT that he had accurately predicted the collapse to give him further credibility.  Democrats were 100% wrong.  Barney Frank was one of the unanimous Nazi-goosetepping Democrats who said stuff like this:

These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

Basically a MONTH before Fannie and Freddie went bankrupt and started the entire housing mortgage market collapse in 2008, Barney Frank was still singing the same idiotic tune:

REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS.: “I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under. They’re not the best investments these days from the long-term standpoint going back. I think they are in good shape going forward.

They’re in a housing market. I do think their prospects going forward are very solid.”

John McCain correctly predicted a disaster.  Barney Frank was still spouting outrageous lies just one month before the bottom fell out of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and then caused the bottom to fall out of the entire economy.  Republicans were right and Democrats were disasterously wrong.  And the American people responded by electing Democrats and purging Republicans.  Because we were lied to, and because we have become a bad people who believe lies.

Democrats blocked every single move by both the Republicans and by George Bush.  They actually threatened filibusters to prevent Bush from fixing the broken system that failed and it was DEMOCRATS who took our economy down the drain.

And Senator Barack Obama had more campaign money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in a shorter time than anyone in Congress.  And he also had more campaign money from Lehman Brothers – a dirty Wall Street player that went belly up – in a shorter time than anyone else in Congress.  Obama was bought and owned by the people who blew up our economy.

Only a nation of fools would have voted for this inexperienced Marxist fool to run our nation.  But a nation of fools believed the worst media propaganda campaign since Joseph Goebbels plied his trade.

Even fools feel pain when they keep getting burned, though.  And Obama is burning America alive.

We are slipping.  Even fools can feel it:

China’s economy to surpass that of US by 2016: IMF

BEIJING: The Chinese economy will surpass that of the US by 2016, the International Monetary Fund ( IMF )) has predicted.According to the IMF’s forecast, based on “purchasing power parities”, China’s gross domestic product (GDP) will rise from $11.2 trillion in 2011 to $19 trillion in 2016, while the American economy will increase from $15.2 trillion to $18.8 trillion.

China’s share of the global economy will ascend from 14 percent to 18 percent, while the US’ share will descend to 17.7 percent, China Daily reported.

The Economist had predicted in December 2010 that China would overtake the US in terms of nominal GDP in 2019.

 At the same time all of the other growing disasters is taking place, we have a crisis in the price of oil.  And Obama has done nothing but exacerbate that crisis with energy policies that are even more destructive than Jimmy Carter’s.

Do you feel your nation growing smaller and smaller and weaker and weaker?  That is the hope and change you voted for.

In the time that Obama has been president, we’ve gone from predicting China would overtake us by 2030, to 2019, to just five years away.  And mark my words, it will be moved up yet again, before they overtake Obama’s ignorant stupidity even faster than that.

Under Obama, and due to his immoral and criminally reckless policies, we are spending like fools and at the same time insanely inflating our money supply (under the euphamism of “qantitative easing” or QE2.  And here are the results:

Dollar’s Decline Speeds Up, With Risks for U.S.
BY TOM LAURICELLA

The U.S. dollar’s downward slide is accelerating as low interest rates, inflation concerns and the massive federal budget deficit undermine the currency.

With no relief in sight for the dollar on any of those fronts, the downward pressure on the dollar is widely expected to continue.
The dollar fell nearly 1% against a broad basket of currencies this week, following a drop of similar size last week. The ICE U.S. Dollar Index closed at its lowest level since August 2008, before the financial crisis intensified.

“The dollar just hasn’t had anything positive going for it,” said Alessio de Longis, who oversees the Oppenheimer Currency Opportunities Fund.

Thanks to your fool-in-chief president, your dollar is worth less and less.  And your gas and your food cost more and more.  Food now costs more than at any time since 1974, thanks to the Democrat messiah.

Or maybe he’s not such a fool.  Because maybe this is what he wanted all along.  Read this article on “the Cloward and Piven Strategy” created by liberals/progressives to implode America written in 2008 (you could also read my own article written in 2009).  And then see what top SEIU official Steven Lerner – who left the “workers of the world unite; it’s not just a slogan anymore” radical union at the same time #1 White House visitor Andy Stern did – had to say about deliberately trying to cause a financial crisis that will implode America.

The United States of America is dangerously close to complete collapse.  One wrong move, one piece of bad news, just one thing, could send us into a collapse that will be impossible to stop.

And we are either being led by a total fool, or even worse, we are being led by a man who is actively plotting to collapse America to impose a radical leftwing ideology, and who doesn’t care one iota more about the American people than Adolf Hitler cared about the German people.

I’m sure you have probably picked up on my angry tone.  I am angry; I’m beyond angry.  Why?  Because I see the beast foretold by the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation coming.  I see the collapse coming, and the Antichrist riding in on his white horse to save the day.  And I see that the same liberals, the same progressives, the same Democrats who caused this collapse will be the ones to welcome this coming world dictator.  And it will be these same Democrats who call for the American people to take his mark on their hands or on their foreheads so that they can join the rest of the world and buy and sell.

Rest assured, Obama’s reckless fiscal policies are not just undermining America; they are undermining the entire world.  The unrest in the Middle East (which again says “Last days as foretold by the Bible” all over it) is directly attributed to Obama’s monetary policies, according to the G-2o and the central banks.

Barack Obama is a false messiah.  The Democrat Partyis the party of hell.  And they are leading us to hell on earth right now.  Today.

And we are voting for hell.

You mark my words.  It won’t be long now.  The beast is coming.  And if you vote Democrat, you have already voted for him by paving the way for his soon-arrival.

Get ready for hell.

Obama Continues To Reveal He Is The Lowest Form Of Demagogue

April 20, 2011

CBS News had the story:

President Obama invoked the 2007 collapse of the Interstate 35-W bridge in Minneapolis while criticizing cuts to infrastructure in the Republican budget plan at a town hall meeting on Tuesday.

“According to the Republican budget that was passed, for example, we would have to eliminate transportation funding by a third,” he said. “…You remember when that bridge in Minnesota collapsed with all those people on it and there was a big hue and cry, how could this happen in America?”

Obama pointed at the Republican agenda to reign in the utterly out-of-control federal spending that will be absolutely 100% guaranteed to implode America’s economy unless that spending is reigned in, and then demonized the Republicans for a previous bridge collapse.

But as happens far too often in the mainstream media propaganda that often gets to pass for “news,” CBS didn’t fully report the facts.

You see, Obama lied.  Because that’s what he does.  And that collapsed bridge he demagogues to demonize Republicans for - claiming that their budget cuts would eliminate maintenance – didn’t actually have anything whatsoever to do with maintenance:

NTSB: Design errors caused Minn. bridge collapse

WASHINGTON (AP) — The deadly collapse of a Minneapolis bridge last year began at steel plates in a main truss, attributable to a design flaw and not corrosion, federal safety investigators said Thursday.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators said the bridge collapse was unavoidable once U-10 steel gusset plates failed at the U-10 connection, near the center of the bridge. Investigators also ruled out any pre-existing cracking as a factor in the accident.

A hearing into the collapse quickly focused on the U-10 gusset plates on the Interstate 35W bridge. The safety board as far back as January had identified design flaws in the plates as a critical factor in the collapse.

CNS actually does a little investigation and reports the facts in an article entitled, “Obama Misstates Cause of Minn. Bridge Collapse–Falsely Blames Insufficient Federal Spending“:

Contrary to Obama’s townhall speeech, the bridge did not collapse because of “deteriorating” infrastructure. According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the collapse was due to a design flaw, not to a lack of maintenance.

“The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was the inadequate load capacity, due to a design error,” the NTSB states in its 2008 report on the incident.

In fact, the NTSB reported that on the day of the collapse, the bridge was in the process of being refurbished, further contradicting Obama’s claim that the collapse was evidence of a lack of infrastructure spending.

“On the day of the collapse, roadway work was underway on the I35W bridge, and four of the eight travel lanes (two outside lanes northbound and two inside lanes southbound) were closed to traffic,” reads the NTSB report.

If Obama were a halfway honest man, he would apologize for his vicious demonization that is entirely based on a lie.  But he’s not a halfway honest man.  And so he will count on the fact that the mainstream media will report his lies and not bother to correct them.  Because they are leftwing ideologue propagandists, and that’s how they roll.

You want to know something else I don’t understand?  It’s why we still need so much money for mainstenance projects.  Remember Obams’s so-called “stimulus” and how it was all going to go to such “shovel-ready projects”?  According to the CBO, Obama’s stimulus will cost $3.27 TRILLION.

Where did that money go, Barry Hussein?  Why is it that if Republicans cut so much as a dime, bridges across America will collapse?

Then there’s Obama’s demagogic remarks about border security and immigration:

“The question is going to be, are we going to be able to find some Republicans who can partner with me and others to get this done once and for all instead of
using it as a political football?”

But Obama had total Democrat control of Congress for TWO YEARS.  And he utterly failed to make any kind of serious bipartisan overture whatsoever on immigration reform during a period when Republicans had little chance of stopping much of anything.  He is simply lying and blaming Republicans for his own failure.  Which is to say, the only one using this issue as a “political football” is the guy demonizing others for doing what he himself is clearly doing.

You can again see just how utterly and vindictively partisan and demagogic Obama is in this exchange over the fact that Obama had a major meeting on immigration reform, and refused to invite so much as a single governor from one of the border states:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Did you hear what is  going on in Washington? President Obama is talking about immigration reform. The president held a meeting  today at the White House to discuss the broken immigration system. He met with a  bipartisan group. Guess what, he didn’t invite any governors from border states.  Why not?

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer joins us live from  Phoenix. Governor, did you miss your invitation? Did you decline your  invitation? Why weren’t you here at the White House to talk about immigration  reform?

GOV. JAN BREWER, R-ARIZ.: I wish I would have been  invited. No, I do not – I did not get an invite. You would have thought one of  the governors would have been invited since we are on the frontlines fighting  for security there. It was a little bit of a snub, if you will. I think that on  behalf of myself, I think I could have added insight to the situation that  Arizona certainly is facing.

VAN SUSTEREN: I looked at the White House press release. Of  the people who were invited — the category of those — it says stakeholders  expected to attend. I looked up stakeholders to see whether you might be a  stakeholder or Governor Rick Perry. It says a person or group that has  investment share or interest in something as in the business or industry. I  guess it is someone who has a strong interest in the topic. He must think you  don’t have any interest in the issue or you would have been invited.

BREWER: That is very unfortunate if that’s what he believes.  I feel Arizona, I believe I and Rick Perry and certainly the governors on the  border have been leading the fight. We’ve been bringing the message to America.  And I think that we should have been afforded that opportunity to be at the  table to help him understand the situation that we want straightened out.

VAN SUSTEREN: Let me tell you who he did think was a  stakeholder and has a huge interest in this partial list — Mayor Bloomberg, who  of course is the mayor who sent investigators down to Arizona to investigate you  about guns, your state, the former police chief of New York Bill Brown,  Secretary Michael Chertoff, former secretary of Homeland Security.

Then he invited Senator Mel Martinez, former United States senator. Here’s  another interesting one, Greg Page chairman and CEO of Cargill. I thought that’s  an odd one. I understand why, because Cargill was raided in 2007 by immigration  and ice for violations having to do with immigration. They probably have the  inside scoop on that one.

Al Sharpton was invited. The CEO of Facebook, another one. Arnold  Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California not the current governor, and  Richard Trumka, who is AFL-CIO union leader. Those are some of the people that  the president thinks has a greater interest than you do.

BREWER: That’s an unfortunate list as far as I’m concerned.  I didn’t know he had extended the invitation that this meeting was going to take  place.

But it seems by the list and what has been reported back to me this afternoon,  it is people that looking at that wonderful word “comprehensive immigration  reform.” It has nothing to do with what we really need to have done, and that is  to get our borders secured.

I think they are looking to try to talk about amnesty and all these other  issues and the dream act. None of these things in my opinion are going to take  place until we get our borders secured. I don’t think the American people want  to address anything until we feel secure. Our citizens need to feel secure in  their homes. It just continues to grow with the issue of people coming across  our borders illegal, the drug cartels.

VAN SUSTEREN: I may disagree with you a little bit. I would  like a solution that is complete and which protects our borders, protects  Americans and handles all the issues. I would like to see it put behind us. I to  the president’s speech at American university last summer to hear it. I did want  to hear what he said he was going to do.

We haven’t heard anything. He a Democratic house and Senate we don’t hear  anything until now as he gets ready to launch his campaign. And now things have  changed. Now we are hearing it again. I’m deeply disturbed. I think this is  talk. I think his guest list supports that because this is not bringing people  to the table who have real interests in this.

BREWER: I absolutely agree with you. The bottom line is that  he has a different agenda than what the American people have. Unfortunately, we  keep talking and we keep contacting him with our concerns, really no response,  no concern. Of course now we are in the election period so we now he’s going to  be standing up and talking about he’s going to do this and that. He’s had two  years to deliver what he promised two years ago and hasn’t delivered.

So we want our borders secured. I truly believe that the majority of us are  not going to discuss anything else in regards to what his agenda is, until we  get satisfaction with security at our borders.

This is beyond ridiculous.  If you have any intention whatsoever of coming to some kind of agreement, you invite the major decision makers.  But Obama doesn’t want solutions; he wants to prevent solutions and then blame Republicans for the well that Obama personally poisoned.

Last week Obama gave a hateful speech in which he blasted Republicans as the party that wanted to kill old people and children with autism.  During a point in the health care debate, when Obama needed to appear bi-partisan, Obama said:

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as, ‘Well, you know, that’s — the other party’s being irresponsible. The other party is trying to hurt our senior citizens. That the other party is doing X, Y, Z.”

And then he proceeded to do the very thing that he himself had said would undermine and poison the process.  Rep. Paul Ryan said correctly:

“What we got yesterday was the opposite of what he said is necessary to fix this problem.”

And, again, Obama doesn’t WANT to fix problems.  Obama wants to demonize and demagogue and lie and accuse and blame.

We can and should go back to 2006 remarks made by Obama when he personally demonized George Bush for raising the debt celing.  Obama demagogued:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Now the same weaselly demagogue is saying that anyone who acted like Obama himself acted would be an un-American traitor.

It just never ends with this guy.

America’s Credit Rating Downgraded: ‘Chickens Coming Home To Roost’

April 19, 2011

America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”  Just not the way that Barack Obama and his spiritual mentor for more than 20 years said it was.

Taking the war to enemies who despise us and plot our destruction is not what brings on “No, no, no.  Not God bless America, God DAMN America!”  It is the vile policies of a profoundly socialist president such as Barack Obama that bring that judgment about.

“Our chickens” are going to be roasted – and God will damn America – with a financial implosion that will make the Great Depression look like the most pleasant walk on the beach.

Margaret Thatcher said that “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”  But Obama will continue to demand that we keep spending “other people’s money” – the rich he demonizes even as he parasitically leeches off of, China and anyone else fool enough to give him money – until there is nothing left to spend but empty promises of “hope and change.”

And then pop will go the American weasel that had been an eagle until Obama “fundamentally transformed” it.

Standard & Poor’s on Monday downgraded the outlook for the United States to negative, saying it believes there’s a risk U.S. policymakers may not reach agreement on how to address the country’s long-term
fiscal pressures. [...]

The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled more than 200 points on word of the revision, while gold prices hit a new record above $1,496 an ounce

What is basically going on is that S & P is worried that politicians will act as morally depraved as Barack Obama did in 2006 when he voted against the debt ceiling and demonized George Bush for his “failure of leadership” and his “reckless fiscal policies” in seeking an increase in the debt ceiling:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

If our political leaders act as depraved and foolish and vile as the man who is now our president did, we are in big, big trouble.  Think about that: if anyone in this mess acts as craven and as personally despicable as Barack Hussein Obama, America is in big, big trouble.

Now Obama is essentially saying, “Anyone who talks and acts and votes like I did is basically a traitor to America.”

And S & P fears that the America imploding “fundamental transformation” into “hope and change” will win out.

Obama immediately moved to demagogue the S & P the way he’s spent the last two and a half years of his failed presidency demagoguing George Bush:

The Obama administration moved swiftly Monday to downplay ratings agency Standard & Poor’s downgrade of its U.S. credit outlook, calling the decision
a political judgment that should not be taken too seriously.

The timing of S&P’s announcement was unwelcome for the White House, coming just as President Obama tried to regain the initiative on the deficit debate in Washington.

Sorry if fiscal reality got in the way of your viscerally divisive political attack that represents your campaign when everyone who isn’t a total fool knows that we need agreement and consensus.

Obama had (when it was in his hypocritical self-serving interests to appear non-partisan) said:

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as, ‘Well, you know, that’s — the other party’s being irresponsible. The other party is trying to hurt our senior citizens. That the other party is doing X, Y, Z.”

Then the man who said we need to stop demagoguing and come together proceeds to turn into an incredibly divisive political demagogue in an obvious game of chicken he wants to play with the American people’s future:

One vision has been championed by Republicans in the House of Representatives and embraced by several of their party’s presidential candidates…This is a vision that says up to 50 million Americans have to lose their health insurance in order for us to reduce the deficit.  And who are those 50 million Americans?  Many are someone’s grandparents who wouldn’t be able afford nursing home care without Medicaid.  Many are poor children.  Some are middle-class families who have children with autism or Down’s syndrome.  Some are kids with disabilities so severe that they require 24-hour care.  These are the Americans we’d be telling to fend for themselves.”

Rep. Paul Ryan framed Obama’s cynical and vile tactics beautifully:

MR. BARNES: What are the prospects for a grand bargain?

REP. RYAN: Well, this definitely damages them. I think when you go after your political adversaries with the kind of demagogic terms and comparisons that the President did, that makes it harder.

I forgot whose quote this was. Maybe it was Churchill. But he was basically a pyromaniac in a field of straw men. I mean, to set up all these straw men arguments and then to tear them down, it’s almost as if he wanted to paint his political adversaries, supposedly us, in a cartoonish kind of a way, in a caricature as if we want to hurt people’s grandparents, were against families who have children with autism and disabilities and we don’t want kids to go to college. I mean, that’s basically what I got out of the President’s speech yesterday is that what we believe.

How do you have a serious debate about this? This coming from a President who came to our Republican retreat about a year and a half ago and said what we were hoping to hear: We’ve got to do entitlement reform. We, House Republicans, have put out some credible, serious ideas, and we can’t demagogue each other. We can’t go after each other.

And, look, I’m saying both parties do this, but when the President came and said, “We can’t treat the other party as if they’re hurting seniors and hurting people and using this demagoguery,” that’s what he told us when he came to talk to us in 2010 in Baltimore. What we got yesterday was the opposite of what he said is necessary to fix this problem.

Obama said that demagoguery was only going to undermine any chance at agreement.  Now he’s in full-fledged demonization mode, literally trying to push the Republicans into doing what he himself did in 2006 and vote against raising the debt ceiling.  Because this vile president wants the American people to suffer so that he can demagogue that suffering and pervert it into his political advantage as he runs for president on a record of total dismal failure.

And don’t think for one nanosecond that the Standard & Poor’s downgrade was a direct result of Obama’s vicious, demagogic speech in which he amply demonstrated he will do absolutely nothing about our spending problem except demonize anyone who tries to fix it.

Here is a video of an incredibly chilling fictional scenario that is looking more and more and more like the national news just a short time from now:

It was when a foolish nation voted for Obama that “America’s Chickens came home to roost.”  It was when Obama began to “fundamentally transform” America that we truly became “God damn America.”
