I watched Obama on Stephanopolous ABC's White House Pitch and Putt just lie with an ease that frankly, made me very uneasy. Either Obama takes US all to be the biggest idiots ever, or he is an even bigger idiot. He says he didn't know Acorn was getting a lot of federal funding, I knew that before this scandal broke out. Acorn was among the most influential players that got Obama elected, he has represented them as a Lawyer, of course he knows whats going on with them. Come on Mr. President, we are not just off the turnip truck here. What an insult to the average Americans intelligence this man is. He must be counting on his supporters being uninformed or gullible, or deaf and blind.
Obama also said during the campaign he would go through the Federal budget and personally remove the waste and redundancy, so now almost 1/4 of the way through his term he is just finding out what Acorn has been getting through his own budget and stimulus? Come on Mr. Obama, the typical star struck servant(Democrat voter) may believe you, but some are immune to your spells and see right through the lies, yes LIES! Joe Wilson was speaking truth to power, you know it and I know it.
Not a big issue huh? An organization that is using taxpayer money to elect Democrats is not a big issue? Of course not. An organization under investigation in multiple states? Well... , Already known to have fraudulently registered voters? Kicked off the census and now defunded by a Democrat led House and Senate? Not a big issue? Goodness, Obama must be going insane from Soros' Kool aid.
There is something terribly wrong with this man as our President, I am starting to wonder if the Democrats might martyr him themselves, blame conservatives and hope for a race war. This is bordering on insanity, where our country is going and how quickly we will get there. Something is definitely putrid and becoming more rotten with every passing day. It seems too implausible to wrap my brain around it right now.
I only watched that video after I read the synopsis of what Obama said, I knew it was tantamount to an infomercial for his Health care/ insurance take over. Seeing him lie with such natural indifference and casual, almost tacit adroitness was alarming and sobering. I have know people who were good liars and could even fool themselves, Obama could be one of the best, ever.
Hmm, I wonder what that means in the real world of multi dimensional, chess master, power playing, tight rope walking, winner take all, free world gambling, international intrigue? Has Obama sold US down the river, yet? Israel?
All this for Iran? Once again foreign policy seems to defy logic in Obamaworld. Russia has now scrapped their plan to deploy short range missiles, who is at war here? Iran is supposedly three to five years away from a deployable missile system. It makes good sense to wait until the last minute to defend against that. And it only takes 33 minutes for an ICBM to get from there to here, I feel really safe with the Obama team in charge.
Human nature and other countries having divergent interests does not seem to register as counter to Our own interests in any equation Obama has figured for US yet. Our allies are on their own out there and I keep getting this awful feeling that we are being set up big time by the highest levels of our own Government. I cannot see the benefit to giving Russia a concession for nothing in return. I cannot see the blind trust in favoring those who have sworn to try to defeat US to the end. I am not that smart of a war historian or an international relations scholar, but I know something of human behaviour. A tyrant is always a tyrant and totalitarians pursue their own interests first, not for the good of the world, so why is Obama doing these things? Either he is brilliant and 10 moves ahead of me or he is a dunce about to be check mated. I can only pray for the former and wonder how we survive the next three years if the latter proves to be true?
Joe Wilson said what everybody was thinking, maybe he said it wrong, but maybe that was the best way to expose the lies and where they emanate from. The illustration of hypocrisy was beautifully displayed on every single level now that this incident has been thoroughly dissected. Joe Wilson must be discredited now because his statement is known to be true.
This cavalier use of racism against every detractor of a Black President is already so tired. And it is fast becoming irrelevant and indicative of how the Presidents supporters have no real line of defense for his obviously destructive indefensible policy positions. Obamas use of race has created a quandary for himself, first he benefits greatly from it, then uses it to shield himself from criticism and finally overplays it and becomes absurd.
Out of a small acorn grew a mighty oak. The culture of corruption around liberal politics is every bit as astounding, depressing and embarassing as it is around conservative politicians. I know most people are shaking their heads now and thinking that the moral high ground goes to nobody. Lets not even use that barometer of a politicians worthiness anymore. Lets just say they are all corrupt and liars and go from there. A great reasoon to advcate the smallest Goverment possible
What we must all do as concerned citizens is keep a watchful eye on what our Government does with its original charter, which is to provide for our National defense, and uphold the laws they are responsible for primarily, like our borders and our Constitution. The leviathan we have created has wrapped itself around our neck and we need people to do the research like this person... this list is from a comment from American Thinker, someone did their thinking and while I knew all this, seeing it compiled is astounding...
Barack Obama is less of a person than an image- a brand. People see whatever they want as they do on a Rorschach test. But does anyone really know him? In fact, he is: An empty suit. A man with no birth certificate. A man who was deserted in childhood by his biological father. A man whose birth records, both in the United States and Kenya, are sealed by government order.

A self-professed communist as his "Green Jobs Czar". A "Pay Czar" to regulate the pay of corporate executives.

A man about whom liberal journalist Tom Brokaw said, "There's a lot about him we don't know." . . .just one week before the election.
The vast majority of Americans do not know who he is, but someone surely does. Someone paid for his travel expenses to Pakistan and Indonesia. Someone engineered legal challenges to all of his election opponents for the State Senate and had them disqualified. Someone straightened and leveled his path to the U.S. Senate when a Democrat Judge made public the child custody records of his Republican opponent. When he was a candidate for the U.S. Senate, someone arranged for him to speak at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Someone saw to it that all of his records were sealed, both at home and abroad. Someone assembled the massive organization for his run for the Presidency.
Someone knows all about him. and we are learning more everyday.......
At work the other day, after another Obama speech, the Construction Worker analysis of O' bama's actions and mannerisms were summed up thusly: "He would rather be somewhere else, he is going through the motions and not mentally engaged in this". Many times I have noticed the shiftiness of President Obama and wondered where the passion was, where his allegiances were really set. I know I have never supported Obama and always had suspicions, so my opinion is void, but I keep hearing similar perceptions and I know we can't all be wrong in this way. Something is dreadfully wrong with what Obama is doing to our Country. He IS deconstructing it, to rebuild it in his own image, he is not trying to win in Afghanistan, he is not trying to create jobs, he is trying to consolidate power to the Federal Government and he is trying to redistribute the wealth, aka socialize our nation.
Fortunately people are waking up, and I guess conservative views have to be overwhelming to get equal representation in the media accounts of what is really happening. I pray that the good wins out and freedom can be held onto as we fight back this soft tyranny. No crisis is worth losing our country over.
Maybe Obama Just Wants to be the Last President, Period
In a world where everything is upside down and words are parsed and arguments couched the President did say something that caught my eye and ear. He said I want to be the last President to take up the issue of Health care (Insurance?) reform. I am just wondering if he really just wants to be our last President. Economic policies are taking US to the edge of the cliff and cap and trade and now this Obamacare will put US over the edge. We had a nice little run didn't we America?
On September the 8th 2009 The White House proposes to pipe the President into all the classrooms across this country. There is a curriculum attached and all this is under the guise of welcoming children back to school. How can this President be so arrogant as to think that he is welcome in every classroom by every child with as divisive an agenda and discourse as he has shown toward roughly half this Country's population?
There is a real fear of the way totalitarian dictators view the youth in their societies as captive adherents to a benevolent benefactor. Are we witnessing just such a megalomaniacal grab of our children right in front of our very faces? Hitler had his youth brigade, Kim Jung Il surrounds himself with children for credibility. Castro and Chavez work that angle, Red China knows where the future lies, it is the future of any country that needs to be enlisted and swayed to support such a takeover. The Educational system has already vaulted over the parental rights and now I fear Obama will try to swoop in and trick the children. As his poll numbers continue to plummet this President has unprecedented gall to go after our kids and undermine parental authority even further.
I think I will give my children the option of not going that day and if they do go I will have to debrief them when I see them that night. I am curious as to how Obama will tiptoe this fine line between Democracy and Totalitarianism. The Dear leader is after all the head of the Government, not the head of State.
