Where Have I Heard That Before?

with one comment

President Obama says all the right things.  And guess what?  We heard all these things in 2008.

The President’s problem isn’t what he says, it’s what he does.

Do you really believe saying the same things now that you said four years ago will make the next four years any better than the last?

Obama’s First Term in His Own Words

with 2 comments

President Obama is an intelligent man.  There are intelligent members of the Democrat party both in leadership and rank and file.  Contrary to what some on the right may say, the left is not stupid.

Having said that, this video, cataloging  the president’s own words at different times and with different audiences, leaves me to believe the Democrat leadership and this president have intentionally misled this country through;

  • misinformation
  • misappropriation
  • mischaracterization
  • miscommunication
  • misfeasance
  • misjudgment
  • mismanagement
  • misrepresentation
  • misspending
  • mistreatment
  • and misguidance

They can’t possibly be so stupid or shortsighted to not realize at some point the double-talk would be exposed.  You won’t see this comparison of the president’s speeches over the past 4 years on any major news network or in any major news publication.  It’s for this very reason that big government on both sides of the political aisle want to regulate the internet.  If not for the internet, few if any Americans would have the opportunity to evaluate these varying and contradictory statements spoken by candidate Obama and now President Obama.

This is more than just broken campaign promises.  This is a revealing expose’ on what the president says when in the company of the public and when he’s in the company of his ardent followers.  It proves, to me at least, the he will indeed say and do whatever is necessary to garner admiration, support, and votes.  His allies in the media have not held him accountable for the many contradicting messages over the past 4 years.

After watching this president for 4 years and hearing this compilation of his words, I have to conclude, voting for Barack Obama and giving him another 4 years in the White House would be a huge:

Mistake.

The Chain Around America’s Neck

with 2 comments

On January 20, 2009, the total outstanding National Debt stood at $10,626,877,048,913.08.

On August 19, 2011, the number was $14,639,239,567,874.38

That’s an increase of $4,012,362,518,961.3 over the 942 days of the Obama Presidency that had elapsed between those two days, or an increase of $4,259,408,194.23 per day

If that trend continues the national debt will be $16,854,131,828,872.13 at the end of President Obama’s current term, and $25,292,019,461,634.69 on Inauguration Day 2017.

President Obama and the Congressional Representatives that support him and his policies that have increased the National Debt to these levels owe the American people an explanation and reasonable justification for putting this incredible burden of debt on the backs of future generations.

Two Problems.

1. They can’t explain or justify it.

2. They don’t really care to.

Frankly, they don’t believe you can do anything about it.
