Debt To Shoot Over $15 TRILLION Today Under Obama (Thanks For Bankrupting Us, Barry Hussein!)

November 16, 2011

Obama promised he would cut spending.  Obama promised he would “cut our deficit in half by the end of my first term.”

Here’s the thing.  Obama not only lies; he lies knowing full damn well he’s lying.  He promises to cut spending when at the very same time he keeps calling for more and more spending than not only this nation but THE ENTIRE PLANET AND HUMAN RACE have ever seen.  Obama rammed through an $862 billion stimulus that the CBO said would actually cost the American people $3.27 TRILLION.  And then if that wasn’t enough he recently set out to demonize Republicans for not doing the same insane thing AGAIN with his jobs bill that not even DEMOCRATS will pass (and see here).

And under Obama, the projected future deficits easily top a trillion a year for as far into the future as the eye can see.  Not that America will make it that long before it implodes.

This guy is genuinely evil.  He is a liar without shame.  And he is leading us to complete economic collapse.

US Debt Hits 15 Trillion Today – First Time In History

On November 16th the U.S. National Debt is set to soared above the $15 trillion mark for the first time in history. As this staggering figure is digested by the nation; politicians seem to be oblivious to the ramifications of their uncontrolled spending and resulting debt burden as it continues to climb with no end in sight.

While the global financial system remains transfixed by the problems of Greece and several other European countries risking default over their massive debts, the real threat is whether the credit standing and currency stability of the world’s biggest borrower, the United States, will be jeopardized by its disastrous outlook on deficits and debt.

That’s the fear raised in a penetrating Op-Ed found on the Financial Times website written by Roger Altman, a former deputy U.S. Treasury secretary under President Clinton who is now chairman of Evercore Partner, a leading global advisory and investment firm.

“America’s fiscal picture is even worse than it looks,” Altman writes. “The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office just projected that over 10 years, cumulative deficits will reach $9.7 trillion and federal debt 90 percent of gross domestic product – nearly equal to Italy’s.

While President Obama is preparing for a difficult re-election fight next year; Republican candidates from Mitt Romney to Herman Cain have pounced on the country’s economic woes in their bids to win the GOP nomination and the chance to oppose Obama.

Neither party seems open to fully embracing the Simpson and Bowles Committee recommendations that many citizens would agree are the most common-sense and comprehensive solutions to the nation’s revenue and debt problems.

The Occupy Wall Street protests directed at the nation’s financial inequalities continue to rage across the country; but one has to question if these protest wouldn’t be more accurate if consolidated in Washington D.C. where each citizen is being punished for the unconscionable purchase of votes by entitlement politicians.

It took nearly 200 years for the United States to rack up $1 trillion, but the federal government has certainly made up for lost time by increasing the debt by another $14 trillion in just the past 40 years.

Passing this significant milestone may mean that President Barack Obama will have to request another debt ceiling increase before next years election.

And while neither party seems committed to cutting the national debt, Republicans in Congress have showed some backbone in opposing further borrowing by the government. And some may argue that the acrimonious debate on Capitol Hill a few months ago about raising the national debt ceiling illustrates that politicians are finally hearing outrage from the citizenry.

The “Super Committee” is having trouble coming up with a mere 1.2 trillion in cuts for the next 10 years (a pittance of the amount needed to reduce the debt) and no better luck than Congress did as a whole in tackling the overall problem of spending.

No one can argue that President George W. Bush bears a great deal of responsibility for this mess and it was evident that the growing debt and lack of conservative fiscal policies cost the Republicans in the 2008 elections.

What is unclear is whether Obama’s big-government liberal tendencies that have increased spending by more than $4 trillion in just three years will cause his defeat in 2012 and the reversal of the growing debt trend by installing a new administration with debt reducing policies.

View: US Debt Clock

Under Obama’s “leadership,” the United States will pay nearly $700 billion in interest alone each year to service our debt.

This nation is almost certainly doomed because the American people were foolish enough at a critical point in our history to elect a fool to lead them.

God damn America is about to come crashing down.

Obama Demonizes GOP ‘In God We Trust’ Resolution. Let’s See If He Attacks Democrat House Resolution Too (Dishonesty Alert)

November 9, 2011

Barack Obama self-righteously demonized House Republicans for spending five minutes on a resolution to continue to honor God:

Obama Mocks Congress For ‘In God We Trust’ Motto Vote, Ignoring Jobs Bill
First Posted: 11/2/11 06:03 PM ET Updated: 11/3/11 05:51 PM ET

President Barack Obama urged lawmakers to move on the transportation funding portion of his jobs bill Wednesday, while simultaneously mocking them for spending time on supposedly less-important undertakings, such as a recent measure to reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the national motto.

In a speech from beneath the D.C. area’s Key Bridge, Obama told spectators that Congress had time to bring up votes on aspects of the American Jobs Act, but were instead dealing with more frivolous legislation.

“And if Congress tells you they don’t have time, they’ve got time to do it,” Obama said.

“In the House of Representatives, what have you guys been doing, John?” Obama continued, calling out Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio). “You’ve been debating a commemorative coin for baseball. You’ve had legislation reaffirming that ‘In God We Trust’ is our motto. That’s not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”

On Wednesday, the House voted 396-9 on a bill that reaffirmed the motto and encouraged its display in all public schools and government buildings.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) had argued that some people, including Obama, needed to be reminded of the motto.

“Almost a year ago, the president in making a speech across the world said that our national motto was ‘E pluribus unum,'” Forbes said. “When the [U.S. Capitol] Visitor Center was opened … they did not have the national motto in there. In fact, they inscribed in the stones that our national motto was ‘E pluribus unum.'”

Let’s see if this cynical hypocrite without shame, integrity, decency or honor has a shred of intellectual or moral consistency against Democrats for “wasting time” in a resolution of their own:

House Resolution Honors Unions’ Role in Building Middle Class
AFL-CIO
^ | Nov 4, 2011 | Mike Hall

The nation’s labor unions play a vital role in “ensuring a strong middle class,” says a resolution honoring the labor movement introduced in the House this week by Rep. Donald Payne (D-N.J.).

The resolution recognizes the importance of unions in building and maintaining a middle class:

by advocating for more equitable wages, humane work conditions, improved benefits…[and] unions make the middle class strong by ensuring workers have a voice in both the market and in the nation’s democracy.

Payne, who held several unionized jobs before being elected to Congress in 1988 says:

I know firsthand the strong impact unions have made on the workforce. I worked my way through college as a dockworker at Port Newark. I was once a seasonal postal worker and truck driver. I have worked the line and was a forklift operator at a local brewery in Newark, New Jersey.

I also served as a teacher for Newark Public Schools. If it were not for the protections provided by a union in these positions, I may not have succeeded in those positions, which ultimately prepared me to represent labor union interests now as a senior member on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.

The resolution notes that if the rate of unionization increased by 10 percent, “the typical middle class family would earn $1,479 more this year,” and also says:

Unions benefit even non-union workers—particularly in highly unionized industries—by setting a high-standard for benefits and wages that other employers must meet.

It also highlights the role unions have played in bringing economic equality to women and communities of color, the training opportunities unions provide and their essential contributions in winning vital legislation from Social Security to the minimum wage to health care reform.

Click here for the full resolution and here for more on unions and the middle class from the Center for American Progress Action fund.

I have personally decided that I would be ill-advised to hold my breath that Barack Obama will be anything other than the cynical, dishonest hypocrite he’s always been.

We know that in reality Barack Hussein Obama despises God and one nation under Him with every fiber of his being:

This is the president who literally (and repeatedly) stripped God out of the Declaration of Independence. This is the president who edited Jesus out of Easter. This is the president who called America “one of the largest Muslim countries of the world” even as he explicitly denies that America is or ever was a Christian nation. This is the president who flat-out ridiculed the Bible as the inspired Word of God even as he called the Muslim call to prayer “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.” This is the president who has turned his back on Israel and who serves as the Antichrist’s useful idiot. This is the president whose reverend and spiritual mentor for over 20 years said, “No, no, no. Not God bless America. God DAMN America.”

Let’s see if he will show that same contempt for big unions.

Barack Obama is the very worst kind of cynical, deceiving liar.  He promised to rise above partisan politics – and then sunk lower into partisan politics than ANY president we have ever had.  And God Damn America will continue to be a fractured, divided, economically-sick nation until this Disgrace is driven out of office.

Obama: ‘This election won’t be as sexy as the first one [when I could demonize the incumbant and make a bunch of empty promises]’

October 25, 2011

Get out your barf bags.  Because Obama is coming to your town in his Canadian-built bus (as he sends half a billion dollars to Finland to create jobs in Europe) to talk about “jobs.”  And why three years into his presidency he somehow bears no responsibility for the fact that everything he promised has been nothing but a big fat giant lie from hell.

Obama: Country facing economic, political crisis
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press – 10/24/2011
 
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Testing a re-election theme, President Barack Obama is telling donors during a fundraising rich tour of three western states that the country is suffering from an economic crisis and from a political crisis. “People are crying out for action,” he says.

Pointing to elements of his $447 billion jobs plan rejected by Republican lawmakers, Obama said they would likely linger as campaign issues in 2012.

“This is the fight that we’re going to have right now, and I suspect this is the fight that we’re going to have to have over the next year,” Obama told about 240 donors at a fundraising event Monday at the Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas. “The Republicans in Congress and the Republican candidates for president have made their agenda very clear.”

In Los Angeles on Monday evening, Obama mingled with Hollywood’s royalty. At an intimate dinner with top donors in the Hancock Park home of producer James Lassiter, Obama chatted with movie star Will Smith and former Los Angeles Lakers standout Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

“Sometimes I think people forget how much has gotten done,” Obama said, and he urged his supporters to rally once again, at the same time joking, as he often does, that he is older and grayer now. “This election won’t be as sexy as the first one.”

The Las Vegas fundraiser attracted about 240 people who paid from $1,000 to $35,800 toward Obama’s re-election campaign and to the Democratic National Committee. The bigger donors met the president personally.

The dinner at the Lassiter home was cozier, with fewer than 40 donors who paid $35,800 each. Among the sponsors were Troy Carter, the manager of Grammy award winner Lady Gaga. The singer herself was a guest at a fundraiser last month at the Atherton, Calif., home of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.

Obama was to raise money at the home of movie stars Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, an event aimed at Latino donors that was also expected to feature actress Eva Longoria and mayors Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles and Julian Castro of San Antonio.

While in Las Vegas, Obama spelled out a plan to help homeowners refinance their homes even if their home values had dropped dramatically below what they owed on their mortgages. Obama ventured into a working class development in the Las Vegas suburbs that benefitted from a community revitalization program like one he is pushing Congress to approve now.

But the president displayed campaign-style vigor, wading into the neighborhood crowd to shake hands and even lift a baby. His handlers reminded him it was time to leave, but Obama strode to yet another group of residents for one last hand shake, autograph and photograph.

Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Obama headed to a diverse neighborhood near Lassiter’s home south of Hollywood and stopped at Roscoe’s, a chicken restaurant, where he greeted customers and ordered chicken wings for his staff.

Most of his remaining time during this three-day swing through Nevada, California and Colorado is being spent raising money. On Tuesday he will tape an appearance on “The Tonight show with Jay Leno,” his second as president and fourth appearance overall. He will also attend fundraisers in San Francisco and Denver.

Why is the country suffering from a political crisis and an economic crisis three years into the Obama presidency?  Why is it that three years into the Obama’s regime the people are crying out for action?

Obama began running for re-election earlier than anyone before him:

“Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced his plans to run for reelection in 2012, 582 days before Election Day and before most major Republican opponents officially announced that they’d be entering the race. This is the earliest any incumbent president has officially signed up to run again.”

The day that he announced, he himself ended his ability to move things legislatively.  He went into full-time candidate mode and every single thing he is doing is merely another campaign tactic.

To add to that, Obama has done fundraisers and average of once every three days since he announced his re-election bid in early April.  As of October 13, Obama had held 55 fundraisers since April 4.

You add up all his golf, and he isn’t doing much else BUT campaign.  Particularly given the fact that most of the crap the man is doing is nothing but incredibly poorly disguised campaigning (which he’s cynically making taxpayers pay for).  From CNN:

But at times, the event also took on a touch of the political rally Obama’s political opponents said it was.

“I’m not just here to enjoy the nice weather, I’m here to enlist you in a fight,” he said to the cheering Cannon Falls crowd.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus derided the event — the first stop on Obama’s three-state trip — as nothing more than a campaign event disguised as a public one.

“He’s spending taxpayers’ dollars on a bus tour disguised as some kind of economic event for the country when we all know that it’s a campaign event paid for by the taxpayers,” he said.

Earlier, the Republican National Committee issued a “briefing book” on the trip made to resemble one produced by the administration in which it mockingly described the trip as “a totally non-political taxpayer-funded administration event that just happens to criss-cross several battleground states critical to the president’s reelection.”

Obama continues to demonize Republicans for obstructing his idiotic jobs bill – which is EXACTLY LIKE HIS COMPLETELY FAILED STIMULUS IN EVERYTHING BUT HIS DISINGENUOUS NAME FOR IT – even though IT WAS DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL OF THE SENATE who obstructed Obama’s jobs bill and wouldn’t let it come up for a vote.  Because truth hurts Obama; he has to live in a world of lies and lying demagoguery and sell that world of lies.

Add to that the fact that this Marxist-in-Chief has been out hypocritically playing communist class warfare in public even as he has been sucking up to the filthy rich – oh, about every three days or so – in private.

Let’s just call Obama what he is: totally dishonest (or read what Steve Wynn had to say here).

Housing Under Obama Worst Since Great Depression – With Poor And Minorities Most Screwed By ‘Hope And Change’

October 7, 2011

Obama rammed his “stimulus” through Congress on lies and false promises.

Obama said that virtually all economists were on his side.  That was a flat-out lie.  Obama made promises based on his lies that are now documented to have been completely false.

And this truly evil man who represents God damn America is trying to do the same thing all over again.  He’s singing the same tune and making the same lying promises all over again.

The saddest thing about Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the American economy and way of life is that the people Obama cynically and deceitfully claimed he was defending are in fact the ones who are being the most truly screwed by Obama’s policies.

And it just never ends: Obama crushes and oppresses the poor and the helpless – blames the Republicans for the failures that are completely his fault and which were taking place well before Republicans had any power to fight Obama’s demonic policies at all – and then deceitfully runs against Republicans on a campaign that is pure demagoguery.  As just one example, Obama is out blaming Republicans for stopping his jobs bill – which is just the same damn failed stimulus by a different name But it is DEMOCRATS who are blocking Obama’s jobs bill and Republicans who want it to come up for a vote.  And Obama is the worst kind of liar for falsely claiming otherwise.

And here we go again.  THE most evil president in American history is destroying America.  And it’s hard to imagine how Obama is going to blame his double-dip recession (DEPRESSION) that entirely happened on HIS WATCH on somebody else.  God damn America is going to go down hard until we rid ourselves of this wicked man.

By the way: This article was written by a fool, for what it’s worth. The third paragraph in the article claims the reason for this terrible state of affairs is “reduced government involvement.” But consider the final sentence in this New York Times article:

“Fannie, Freddie and F.H.A. buy or insure about 97 percent of residential mortgages.”

Can you understand how truly full of stupid it is to argue that the government hasn’t been “involved enough” with this wretched fiasco when in fact they control 97 percent of the hell they inflicted on us with their hellish policies?!?!?  Ninety-seven percent wasn’t enough government control, you jackass?!?!?  What, ninety-nine percent would have been even better?  One hundred percent government takeover would have fixed our inadequately socialized system for sure?!?!?

Census: Housing bust worst since Great Depression
By HOPE YEN
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The American dream of homeownership has felt its biggest drop since the Great Depression, according to new 2010 census figures released Thursday.

The analysis by the Census Bureau found the homeownership rate fell to 65.1 percent last year. While that level remains the second highest decennial rate, analysts say the U.S. may never return to its mid-decade housing boom peak in which nearly 70 percent of occupied households were owned by their residents.

The reason: a longer-term economic reality of tighter credit, prolonged job losses and reduced government involvement.

Unemployed young adults are least likely to own, delaying first-time home purchases to live with Mom and Dad. Middle-aged adults 35-64, mostly homeowners who were hit with mortgage foreclosures or bankruptcy after the housing bust in 2006, are at their lowest levels of ownership in decades.

Measured by race, the homeownership gap between whites and blacks is now at its widest since 1960, wiping out more than 40 years of gains.

“The changes now taking place are mind-boggling: the housing market has completely crashed and attitudes toward housing are shifting from owning to renting,” said Patrick Newport, economist with IHS Global Insight. “While 10 years ago owning a home was the American Dream, I’m not sure a lot of people still think that way.”

He noted the now-diminished roles of mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which for decades at the urging of government helped enable loans to borrowers with poor credit, many of them minorities. In a shift, the Obama administration earlier this year said it would move from a longtime government focus on promoting homeownership for all and instead steer people with low incomes toward renting where appropriate.

Congress has been considering whether to eliminate the federal tax deduction for home-mortgage interest, a popular incentive to home-buying that’s been in place since the early 20th century.

Given depressed housing values that could continue for at least another four to five years, it now makes more sense in most cases to rent than own, Newport said.

Nationwide, the homeownership rate fell to 65.1 percent – or 76 million occupied housing units that were owned by their residents – from 66.2 percent in 2000. That drop-off of 1.1 percentage points is the largest since 1940, when homeownership plummeted 4.2 percentage points during the Great Depression to a low of 43.6 percent.

Since 1940, the number of Americans owning homes had steadily increased in each decennial census due to a mostly booming economy, favorable tax laws and easier financing. The one exception had been 1980-1990, when ownership remained unchanged at 64.2 percent.

Broken down by state, 41 states saw declines in home ownership since 2000, many of them in the South and West where foreclosures were more common. They were led by South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and North Carolina. On the other end of the scale, states with higher shares of vacation homes owned by affluent baby boomers saw small increases in ownership, including New Hampshire, Hawaii, Alaska and Vermont.

The U.S. housing crisis is far worse than the experience in most Western industrialized nations, which, unlike the U.S., did not foster markets of subprime lending to promote homeownership. The U.S. continues to maintain a relatively high rate of homeownership, surpassed only by countries such as Spain, Ireland, Australia and England.

“In the U.S., there’s still a strong cultural pull toward homeownership, because in normal times it’s always been seen as a way to build net worth and equity,” said Dan McCue, research manager at Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. But with many former homeowners now renting, he said, clearly that dynamic has changed: “It puts a renewed focus on rentals, and on ways to create new opportunities for low-income households to build their wealth.”

Blacks, who as a whole have lower income and higher unemployment than other groups, were particularly set back by the housing bust. Their homeownership rate fell from 46.3 percent in 2000 to 44.3 percent; among whites, the rate dipped slightly from 72.4 percent to 72.2 percent. Whites are now on average 1.63 times more likely than blacks to own a home, the widest gap since 1960.

Among all minorities, homeownership in the U.S. rose slightly over the past decade to 48 percent from 47.4 percent, boosted by more home buying among the younger and larger Hispanic population. Hispanic homeownership increased from 45.7 percent to 47.3 percent.

In all, nearly 44 percent of all renters in the U.S. are minorities, compared with only 22 percent of homeowners. Broken down by state, minorities make up more than half of all renters in 10 states and the District of Columbia, up from 6 in 2000 – with the new states being New York, New Jersey, Mississippi, Louisiana and New Mexico.

“There is no doubt that a large part of the white-minority economic divide is reflected in the disproportionate minority representation among the nation’s renters,” said William H. Frey, a demographer at Brookings Institution, who analyzed the race data. “The recent financial crises, including large numbers of subprime loans to African Americans, has dramatically widened the white-black homeownership disparity.”

Other census findings:

-Homeownership rates decreased in each region of the country over the last decade. Midwesterners were most likely to own a house, at 69.2 percent, followed by Southerners at 66.7 percent, Northeasterners at 62.2 percent and Westerners at 60.5 percent.

-For the fourth census in a row, West Virginia had the highest homeownership rate, at 73.4 percent. The District of Columbia, with its high share of single twenty- and thirty-somethings who rent, had the lowest at 42 percent.

-While homeowners were the majority in most of the nation’s metropolitan areas, they were outnumbered by renters in many of the nation’s largest cities. They included New York City, where renters made up 69 percent of households, Los Angeles at 61.8 percent, Chicago at 55.1 percent and Houston at 54.6 percent.

By age, the highest ownership rate nationwide is for those 65 and older, about 77.5 percent. Older Americans are more likely to own their homes debt-free and thus be less exposed to the foreclosure crisis. Still, their homeownership rate is down slightly from a 2000 peak of 78.1 percent.

Among adults 34 and younger, homeownership was nearly 40 percent, the highest since the mid-1990s. For adults in the 35-44, 45-54 and 55-64 age groups, homeownership rates fell to their lowest since at least 1980.

Peter Francese, founder of American Demographics magazine who is now analyst for the MetLife Mature Market Institute, believes Americans aren’t completely giving up on homeownership. He noted millions of young adults are delaying home-buying while they temporarily double-up with their parents, representing pent-up demand for houses that will surface once the job market begins to recover.

If Democrats actually give one flying damn about the poor or about minorities, it is long past time that they threw this failure out on his dumbo ears.

I call them “DemonCrats,” for “Demonic Bureaucrats.”  These people impose their Marxist-fascist government planned economy, and then they simply cannot understand why it keeps failing over and over and over again.

What happens again and again?  The Demonic Bureaucrats impose stupid and immoral policies on the private sector to force them to do incredibly harmful and counterproductive things such as make home loans to people who cannot possibly afford them.  And then when the private sector figures out a way to somehow make money on the latest failed government takeover, the DemonCrats blame the private sector.  Thus Democrats force the banks to make stupid loans to people who could not pay those loans back, forcing the banks to pursue dangerous policies in pursuit of the profits they exist to pursue.  And then when everything goes to hell, the same Democrats who set up the entire disaster and caused the whole mess invariably point their fingers at the people they forced into an impossible situation to begin with.

And Democrats will continue to do this until the American people either wise up and drive them out of power, or until America collapses.  Whichever comes first.

Poll Shows Few Americans Believed Obama Mistatement of the Union Speech

January 30, 2010

The Obama deficit of trust in a nutshell:

Deficit of Trust: Most Voters Don’t Believe President’s Assertions About Economy
Saturday, January 30, 2010

During his State-of-the-Union address Wednesday night, President Obama spoke about a deficit of trust between the American people and political leaders. New Rasmussen Reports polling on the president’s speech shows just how deep that trust deficit has become.

The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years.

The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while 50% say it is false.

Obama claimed that steps taken by his team are responsible for putting two million people to work “who would otherwise be unemployed.” Just 27% of voters say that statement is true. Fifty-one percent (51%) say it’s false.

Obama is now pimping his “jobs bill” with the same type of lies he earlier pimped his stimulus.  That said:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30% of voters nationwide believe the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has helped the economy. However, 38% believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy. This is the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality has held a negative view of its impact.

The number who believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy rose from 28% in September, to 31% in October, and 34% in November before jumping to 38% this month. The week after the president signed the bill, 34% said it would help the economy, while 32% said it would hurt.

The Political Class has a much different view than the rest of the county. Ninety percent (90%) of the Political Class believes the stimulus plan helped the economy and not a single Political Class respondent says it has hurt. (See more on the Political Class).

Kind of interesting.  I watched CNN and NBC after the speech, and I got the idea that Obama must have walked on water.

The political class wants more government and fewer liberties for citizens 100% of the time.

There’s an old adage: fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Don’t be ashamed that you were stupid.  Get it right now, and start being part of the solution.

It’s time for some hope and change regarding Obama.  Let’s hope that more Americans change their view of Obama and see him for the lying fraud he is.

Sarah Palin Demolishes Obama’s Pretentions State of the Deception Speech

January 28, 2010

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

Today at 2:17pm

While I don’t wish to speak too harshly about President Obama’s state of the union address, we live in challenging times that call for candor. I call them as I see them, and I hope my frank assessment will be taken as an honest effort to move this conversation forward.

Last night, the president spoke of the “credibility gap” between the public’s expectations of their leaders and what those leaders actually deliver. “Credibility gap” is a good way to describe the chasm between rhetoric and reality in the president’s address. The contradictions seemed endless.

He called for Democrats and Republicans to “work through our differences,” but last year he dismissed any notion of bipartisanship when he smugly told Republicans, “I won.”

He talked like a Washington “outsider,” but he runs Washington! He’s had everything any president could ask for – an overwhelming majority in Congress and a fawning press corps that feels tingles every time he speaks. There was nothing preventing him from pursuing “common sense” solutions all along. He didn’t pursue them because they weren’t his priorities, and he spent his speech blaming Republicans for the problems caused by his own policies.

He dared us to “let him know” if we have a better health care plan, but he refused to allow Republicans in on the negotiations or consider any ideas for real free market and patient-centered reforms. We’ve been “letting him know” our ideas for months from the town halls to the tea parties, but he isn’t interested in listening. Instead he keeps making the nonsensical claim that his massive trillion-dollar health care bill won’t increase the deficit.

Americans are suffering from job losses and lower wages, yet the president practically demanded applause when he mentioned tax cuts, as if allowing people to keep more of their own hard-earned money is an act of noblesse oblige. He claims that he cut taxes, but I must have missed that. I see his policies as paving the way for massive tax increases and inflation, which is the “hidden tax” that most hurts the poor and the elderly living on fixed incomes.

He condemned lobbyists, but his White House is filled with former lobbyists, and this has been a banner year for K Street with his stimulus bill, aka the Lobbyist’s Full Employment Act. He talked about a “deficit of trust” and the need to “do our work in the open,” but he chased away the C-SPAN cameras and cut deals with insurance industry lobbyists behind closed doors.

He spoke of doing what’s best for the next generation and not leaving our children with a “mountain of debt,” but under his watch this year, government spending is up by 22%, and his budget will triple our national debt.

He spoke of a spending freeze, but doesn’t he realize that each new program he’s proposing comes with a new price tag? A spending freeze is a nice idea, but it doesn’t address the root cause of the problem. We need a comprehensive examination of the role of government spending. The president’s deficit commission is little more than a bipartisan tax hike committee, lending political cover to raise taxes without seriously addressing the problem of spending.

He condemned bailouts, but he voted for them and then expanded and extended them. He praised the House’s financial reform bill, but where was Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in that bill? He still hasn’t told us when we’ll be getting out of the auto and the mortgage industries. He praised small businesses, but he’s spent the past year as a friend to big corporations and their lobbyists, who always find a way to make government regulations work in their favor at the expense of their mom & pop competitors.

He praised the effectiveness of his stimulus bill, but then he called for another one – this time cleverly renamed a “jobs bill.” The first stimulus was sold to us as a jobs bill that would keep unemployment under 8%. We now have double digit unemployment with no end in sight. Why should we trust this new “jobs bill”?

He talked about “making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development,” but apparently it’s still too tough for his Interior Secretary to move ahead with Virginia’s offshore oil and gas leases. If they’re dragging their feet on leases, how long will it take them to build “safe, clean nuclear power plants”? Meanwhile, he continued to emphasize “green jobs,” which require massive government subsidies for inefficient technologies that can’t survive on their own in the real world of the free market.

He spoke of supporting young girls in Afghanistan who want to go to school and young women in Iran who courageously protest in the streets, but where were his words of encouragement to the young girls of Afghanistan in his West Point speech? And where was his support for the young women of Iran when they were being gunned down in the streets of Tehran?

Despite speaking for over an hour, the president only spent 10% of his speech on foreign policy, and he left us with many unanswered questions. Does he still think trying the 9/11 terrorists in New York is a good idea? Does he still think closing Gitmo is a good idea? Does he still believe in Mirandizing terrorists after the Christmas bomber fiasco? Does he believe we’re in a war against terrorists, or does he think this is just a global crime spree? Does he understand that the first priority of our government is to keep our country safe?

In his address last night, the president once again revealed that there’s a fundamental disconnect between what the American people expect from their government, and what he wants to deliver. He’s still proposing failed top-down big government solutions to our problems. Instead of smaller, smarter government, he’s taken a government that was already too big and supersized it.

Real private sector jobs are created when taxes are low, investment is high, and people are free to go about their business without the heavy hand of government. The president thinks innovation comes from government subsidies. Common sense conservatives know innovation comes from unleashing the creative energy of American entrepreneurs.

Everything seems to be “unexpected” to this administration: unexpected job losses; unexpected housing numbers; unexpected political losses in Massachusetts, Virginia, and New Jersey. True leaders lead best when confronted with the unexpected. But instead of leading us, the president lectured us. He lectured Wall Street; he lectured Main Street; he lectured Congress; he even lectured our Supreme Court Justices.

He criticized politicians who “wage a perpetual campaign,” but he gave a campaign speech instead of a state of the union address. The campaign is over, and President Obama now has something that candidate Obama never had: an actual track record in office. We now can see the failed policies behind the flowery words. If Americans feel as cynical as the president suggests, perhaps it’s because the audacity of his recycled rhetoric no longer inspires hope.

Real leadership requires results. Real hope lies in the ingenuity, generosity, and boundless courage of the American people whose voices are still not being heard in Washington.
