What are we telling our current politicians and future politicians when we allow someone to lie to us on national television and then re-elect them to the highest post in America. President Obama went on national television in prime time and lied to the American people and for some unknown reason people will vote for him on Nov. 2 2012.
What I loved was his first sentence, he looks at the problems we are having and sums it up in his first sentence: “For the last decade, we have spent more money than we take in.” Amen Mr President, thank you for stating the obvious. So why are you requesting the ability to spend more money than we take in and continue the policies that have led us to this mess? What happened to the “change” voters “hoped” for?
Lets continue on with his campaign speech : “In the year 2000, the government had a budget surplus.” By using accounting tricks to fabricate a surplus. They used social security i.o.u’s to fund government programs so that Clinton could campaign on surpluses.
“But instead of using it to pay off our debt, the money was spent on trillions of dollars in new tax cuts,” So, allowing Americans to keep the money they earn costs money? What it does is lower the income of the federal government, it does nor increase spending. This is simple economics that even my nine year old understands.
“while two wars and an expensive prescription drug program were simply added to our nation’s credit card.” But Obama has added another war in Libya and a bigger healthcare program to the national credit card and he is ok with that? What a hypocrite this fool is.
“As a result, the deficit was on track to top $1 trillion the year I took office.” Then he doubled that and is asking for us to allow him to triple it. So he complains about a $1 trillion deficit when he has created a $2.6 trillion deficit? Only an ignorant fool would cheer for this mess.
Now, this is the biggest load of liberal pooh I have ever heard: “To make matters worse, the recession meant that there was less money coming in, and it required us to spend even more” and he said it with a straight face. I can’t take any more of this dirtbag’s lying.
You can read the rest of his drivel if you want to get a head ache at: CNN
So I ask again, how can we allow the President of the Untied States of America to go on live national television and lie to the American people without any repercussion for his lying? If the plan was for him to be so bad a president that Republicans would rather vote for Hillary than give him a chance at a second term…. mission accomplished.
I can not image a worst President than Barack Obama, Kerry would have been close but I think Barry has lowered the standard than anyone could have imagined. I challenge the DNC to nominate a better candidate than Obama in 2012, in fact Sen. Barry Sanders agrees with me (ya, it scared me too). I challenge anyone that voted for Obama in 2008 to defend this guy without blaming Bush. What has this guy done to create a solid economic future for America that was not suggested by conservatives?
