Obama lies……

I listened on the radio at 1:00pm yesterday as President Obama spoke from the White House on Obamacare and the Federal Government “shutdown”. He started right off babbling BS as he claimed “Republicans in Congress chose to shut down the federal government”. He continued calling the government shutdown a “Republican shutdown” several times. Additionally, he stated, “They’ve shut down the government over an ideological crusade to deny affordable health insurance to millions of Americans.” Did you catch that? He basically just said that THEY (those evil Republican’s) are on a crusade AGAINST affordable health insurance for millions of Americans. Ridiculous. 

He spewed some of the most partisan rhetoric I have ever heard from a sitting US President. It was truly disappointing – but not surprising. This man that boasted bringing  “transparency” to Washington and would work with both Democrats and Republicans to get the peoples work done….well, hasn’t. In fact – quite the opposite.

American’s are unbelievably forgetful  – especially those that voted for him. Go back and watch campaign appearances and what he promised – and compare that to what he actually has done.  Do that – and then remember he was RE-ELECTED!!  He fed his minions a line of BS and they ate it up….twice.

Back to his speech yesterday….

Obama stated that “the last time Republicans shut down the government in 1996, it hurt our economy.” Go fact check that. Turns out it is not true at all in fact the stock market boomed afterwards and government numbers showed the economy actually received a boost from it. More lies.

Read the following statement by Obama yesterday……

“As I’ve said repeatedly, I am prepared to work with Democrats and Republicans to do the things we need to do to grow the economy and create jobs, and get our fiscal house in order over the long run.  Although I should add this shutdown isn’t about deficits, or spending, or budgets.  After all, our deficits are falling at the fastest pace in 50 years.  We’ve cut them in half since I took office.  In fact, many of the demands the Republicans are now making would actually raise our deficits.”

Holy crap. I heard that and could hardly contain myself. Republicans worked ALL weekend trying to compromise with Democrats and had no response other than, “Go ahead….let the government shut down.” Obama made little effort other than a last minute phone call to Congressional leaders. He then follows it up with stating that deficits are falling at the fastest pace in 50 years. If this is true – it is only because the deficit under Obama has been the largest EVER. Regardless – the Federal Debt continues to grow at record setting pace to dangerous levels – but he seems to forget about that.

I will agree with Obama on one thing – both Democrats and Republicans have failed to do their job. Most in Congress continue to fail in their representing their constituents, but rather they represent special interests and  corporations. 

Our government continues to dig the hole deeper and deeper and we are all falling.

Parachute anyone?

  1. Going “Galt” seems more and more to be the most logical answer to what is happening… but… I can’t bring myself to do it just yet, though it is becoming more inviting as time passes. I continue to believe (foolhardy…perhaps) that Americans are too great to be constrained by a meager prosperity, small dreams, and a controlling, centralized government, they need the freedom that comes from constitutional government, the freedom to prosper, to dream of the impossible, and then reach for those dreams. We aren’t built for anything less, and demand nothing more.

  2. I would contend that the average American doesn’t care unless it interferes with American idol, or their ball games. Then its a calamity.

  3. “He basically just said that THEY (those evil Republican’s) are on a crusade AGAINST affordable health insurance for millions of Americans. Ridiculous.”

    Please provide a list of House Republicans who have have voted 42 times to repeal are The Affordable Care Act and then tell me the Republicans are against affordable health insurance for millions of Americans.

    • Al –

      I do not believe that any member of Congress is against affordable healthcare – none. The problem is the way the Liberal’s pushed it through Congress created something which is just now starting to grow into a monster that WILL hurt not only the cost of healthcare – but the quality of it.


  4. This potus can say or do what he wants with the media on his side. I can’t believe all the change in our country, Christians and returning veterans are “extremist” now. Tea Party are “terrorist”, even our founding fathers would be considered terrorist now. Our kids being taught in school that guns are bad, and alot of untruths about the history of our country and our constitution. Also does anyone still say the pledge of allegiance in school? I can thank this administration for one thing, and that is opening my eyes to the world, and showing me how corrupt big government like ours can become.

  5. I think Jay Leno had it right, Republicans pointing the finger at Democrats, Democrats pointing the finger at Republicans, and the American public giving both the middle finger.

    Obama is trying to tie the budget to the raising of the debt ceiling in his speeches when one has nothing to do with the other. The debt ceiling vote isn’t even scheduled for another couple of weeks, but he is doing his best to get the American people to see Republicans as evil. I believe the American population is smarter than that and recent polls are showing that most are not buying into his BS. All he has really done since he took office is to divide the people and reduce our standing in the World. And I thought Jimmy Carter was the worst president ever.

  6. I find it interesting that the last time the Government shut down it was under the watch of another well known Demoncrat, Bill Clinton (1993-2001). That was also the last time we had a big push for “Socialized Medicine”. I agree completely with Jerry and Tim. My eyes have been opened and it is sad that I long for the days of Jimmy Carter and the gas lines over where we are now.

    Still waiting for a change I can believe in,

  7. There is very little standing between where we are and a collapse of the country as we knew it when we were ‘younger’.

    It seems we are on the slippery slope we were always warned about by our grandparents and parents. This one last step, if it is taken, may be the one that sends us on the slide down the mountain side.

    Where does Obama think all of the money really comes from? The FED TREE? That is not ‘free money’ – it all has to be paid back, with interest. Does he think we can continue to run deficits forever? (As Dick Cheney said – deficits don’t matter?)

    We may be witness to the last gasps of breath before the fall.

    If you aren’t ready now the time may soon be here that it is too late.

    I hope I am wrong. But I am ready in case I’m not.

  8. I flat out refuse to listen to ANYTHING Obama says. I cant even stomach the sound of his voice anymore. In all my 42 years on this planet, I have never ever heard any human being lie as much as this man does! The devil himself couldn’t tell more lies if he tried! Seriously, you can fool a lot of the sheeple in this country, but the flies that seem to always be buzzing around him know the smell of bullshit when they smell it! Cant fool them flies! I really pray someone pops him, impeaches him, or the military removes him from office. As for the DemocRats and republipukes, get rid of them all too and start over! We need a government made up of patriots who would be willing to hold office and do whats best for the country. Not welcome illegal aliens smuggling drugs to poison our kids, leave our borders unsecure, start unpopular wars, restrict us from drilling our own oil and becoming energy independent, etc etc etc. Our entire government has failed and Ovommit is the pied piper leading them all!

  9. Who can listen to this Village Idiot from Kenya anymore. He talks with the Muslims, gives them our money, and arms them. America needs to wake up. The masses are so uneducated to what is going on, we should be called the nation of stupid people. Thank goodness that some of us are prepared or preparing for when the SHTF. Then we will get a chance to eliminate these fools for good and start our country back to where it belongs.

  10. From Federalist #58

    “The House of Representatives cannot only refuse, but they alone can propose the supplies requisite for the support of government. They, in a word, hold the purse—that powerful instrument by which we behold, in the history of the British Constitution, an infant and humble representation of the people gradually enlarging the sphere of its activity and importance, and finally reducing, as far as it seems to have wished, all the overgrown prerogatives of the other branches of the government. This power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people, for obtaining a redress of every grievance, and for carrying into effect every just and salutary measure.”

    The House of Representatives is our house, it is where our voice is supposed to be heard and our influence most strongly felt and leveraged. Our Representatives are elected every 2 years in order to ensure that it is our voice that is spoken. They are correctly speaking for me now, I will enjoy this for a bit…. it happens so rarely

  11. From the Federalist Papers #62

    “It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?”

    The Federalist Papers are the gold standard of understanding our republic and the rule of men/women and law. An instruction manual that was once taught in schools. In the eighteen hundreds a 5th grader would be schooled on their importance, by the 8th grade he/she would hold a deep understanding of their meaning… most adults today have never heard of the Federalist Papers. Without their knowledge imparted on the populous, they fall victim to their government, rather than controlling it.

  12. “I do not believe that any member of Congress is against affordable healthcare – none.”
    If you could share the Republican Healthcare Plan with us you would be the very first person to do so.

    “…something which is just now starting to grow into a monster that WILL hurt not only the cost of healthcare – but the quality of it.”

    Speculation and conjecture without evidence.

    • Al-

      You are living in serious deal and providing another example why these bafoons continue to get elected and re-elected. There is no Republican Healthcare Plan – yay!! We do not need the government to run what should be a private business. Government CAN be beneficial in providing some regulation – but to create an entire system? I don’t think so.

      Government can serve a purpose – but to rule over every little aspect of our lives isn’t one of them.

      Facts are showing that Obamacare is bad for this country and bad for the quality of healthcare. It is undeniable and irrefutable – other than by ignorance.


  13. The affordable healthcare plan is hurting this country in a lot of ways. My wife lost her job because her employers were a investor group with several restaurants, and they decided to split the restaurants among themselves, each investor gets one. The restaurants would buy their groceries from my wifes warehouse, when they split it shut down the warehouse she worked at. Crappy for them to do it, she had worked there for 15 years. This healthcare crap has damn near stopped business at the dealership I work at, I am a technician and people are just not coming through. The closer we have got to this law going in to effect the slower business has been. People all over are losing hours or being laid off. Al you are still going through life with blinders on, are you truly this ignorant? Get out and look around, open your eyes.

  14. Rourke, Al displays the essence of what is causing much of the problems in this country… ignorance and a troubling denial of reality.

    Al says: “If you could share the Republican Healthcare Plan with us you would be the very first person to do so.” Admittedly the media prefers the narrative of “no other alternative” and I guess a google search is to difficult for some but there are a multitude of plans, some have been operating in trials for years with great success in providing affordable care to all, reducing costs and improving access to healthcare. From Dr Ben Carson’s plan to my favorite ‘a national concierge system’.

    Al implies: “Speculation and conjecture without evidence.” Again, Al needs to do little more than type a key word or 3, point & click and he would be rewarded with more stories than he would ever care to read about- healthcare premiums rising 12% to 260% on the folks, depending on age, location, income and the like. And NO AL, it’s not always the rich who pay. In Georgia, which didn’t expand Medicaid, a family of 4 making 20 grand a year can sign-up for a Silver plan at a cost of $8,290 a year with a $4,500 deductible and a 70%/30% payout and THEY DON’T QUALIFY FOR A SUBSIDY! They do qualify for the fine after they decide they can’t afford to spend nearly half of their income on insurance. You could read many stories of the medical providers across the nation who are cutting back, letting go of staff and so on. How about the reduced reimbursement rates to those who care for our elderly, causing an ever growing shortage of doctors willing to take on more medicare patients. Al, 70% of all new jobs created in this country since the beginning of this year were part time, under 29 hours a week jobs. This is not normal Al.

    I guess AL could of asked in 2009 how reducing reimbursement rates, raising taxes on healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers, and a 40% tax on those with good healthcare plans would lower healthcare costs and improve care… but you didn’t ask that question… did you Al.

    There will likely come a time when Al will be forced to care about a 20,000 page bill that stands 7 1/2 feet tall, perhaps when it reaches 10 feet tall, maybe at 30,000 pages he will admit there is a problem. Hopefully it will be before he or his loved ones are negatively effected by the affordable care act.

  15. I just read a very interesting article on Facebook from Veterans for Capitalism and the Constitution. I believe it was also shared by The American Patriot. It was a complete history of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, starting with his maternal grandfather. Everyone in his family was a degenerate, Communist, radical, or drunk. Many of them combined multiple shameful and socially unacceptable traits. Barry himself, is a lifelong Marxist Moslem Homosexual. He has hated this country from an early age. I repeatedly warn that he is deliberately collapsing our economy in order to blame Capitalism and institute his Social Utopia. The post is titled President Psycho. It shows a photo of little Barry, in school in Indonesia. I believe the article can also be found at http://www.zimbio.com
