- Obama Fundamentally Transform the Nation Admission
- Obama Family Scandal #3
- Scandal: Obama Insults Nancy Reagan – 11/07/2008 Obama said “I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any seances,” a reference to Nancy Reagan talking with Astrologers while she was living in the White House. Smooth.
- Obama’s “National Security Force” Could Lead to Marxism or Worse! 11/11/08 – FOX NEWS:”A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship. “It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he’s the one who proposed this national security force,” Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. “I’m just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism.” Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military. “That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 1 Timothy Geithner (Tax Cheat #1) 11/22/8 – Obama’s pick for Treasury Secretary (oops) “FORGOT” to pay taxes! Gosh, that’s an easy oversight, right? Could have happened to anyone? Hmmm. He failed to pay social security and medicaid taxes for years and didn’t notice that a housekeeper he employed on the side wasn’t here legally. He knew darn well he owed the taxes and chose not to pay them. More proof Obama is lousy at picking friends! UPDATE: 2/5/9 Mark Stein laughs on Limbaugh’s show as he explains Geithner deducted summer camp for his son! UPDATE: 3/9 Geithner promises a crack down on tax cheaters! Like himself & others on Team Obama?! Video from Sean Hannity explains…
- Obama Official Seals Scandal – 11/25/2008 His Majesty, King Obama not only created his own “official” seal for his candidacy so he could feed his ego & look more presidential, he also invented a fake “Office of the President Elect” &, of course, made an “official” seal for that nonsense too. UPDATE: 3/4/9 Obama wants an official seal for his stimulus plan so signs can go up by road projects!
- Obama Gun Rights Flip Flop # 1 – 1st Obama: ‘I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.’ 2nd Obama: supports the D.C. handgun ban, saying it is constitutional. “We can have a reasonable, thoughtful gun control measure that I think respects the Second Amendment and people’s traditions.” Update 3/4/9: Obama’s AG Eric Holder has tried to link the Mexican drug-war to U.S. gun sales and go after “assault weapons.”
- Obama Birth Certificate Controversy – Some believe he was born in Kenya, not the USA. That would, of course, make him ineligible to be President. There are many (including me) who do not believe this story is true. Others believe it firmly. Still, why can’t any of the hot shot reporters find out once and for all? UPDATE 7/28/9 Fox News: “State officials in Hawaii on Monday said they have once again checked and confirmed that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen, and therefore meets a key constitutional requirement for being president. They hoped to stem a recent surge in the number of inquiries about Obama’s birthplace. “I … have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen,” Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said in a brief statement. “I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago.” — Another popular myth about Obama is that he signed a presidential order sealing his records. Actually, the executive order # 13489 was designed to reverse an earlier executive order which limited access to presidential records.
- Obama Flip-Flop on Leaving Troops in Iraq– 12/2008 The Audacity of Hypocrisy reports: “On July 28th, (2004) the day after his speech at the Democratic convention catapulted him into the national spotlight, Barack Obama told a group of reporters in Boston that the United States had an “absolute obligation” to remain in Iraq long enough to make it a success.” – “The failure of the Iraqi state would be a disaster,” he said at a lunch sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, according to an audiotape of the session. “It would dishonor the 900-plus men and women who have already died. . . . It would be a betrayal of the promise that we made to the Iraqi people, and it would be hugely destabilizing from a national security perspective.” In late winter, 2008, on the campaign trail, Obama says he wants to bring the troops home yesterday — you decide — was he lying then or is he lying now?
- Obama Senate Seat Scandal # 1 Blagojevich Sells Seat – 12/2008 Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojeich, elected with help from US Senator Barack Obama who said Blago ran “a sound administration”, is arrested for trying to sell Obama’s vacant US Senate seat to the highest bidder. For weeks, Obama basically has no comment. Just before Christmas he announces his staff did nothing improper. Both Obama & Blago also have ties to Tony Rezko.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 2 Susan Rice -12/1/2008 Susan Rice, nominated for UN Ambassador, wants US troops to attack the Sudanese military, to join UN forces on the ground in Darfur, and to enforce a no fly zone over Darfur. Rice is too immature and dangerous to be placed in such a position of authority by Obama, who demonstrates time and time again he is a VERY poor judge of character. Rice is a far left blogger who calls conservatives “hacks” and says she “cussed & spat” when George W. Bush spoke of Iraq. She actually believes George Bush deliberately decided not to protect from terrorists, states which voted democrat! UPDATE: Rice was approved with support from wimpy republicans.
- Obama’s Flip-Flop on Windfall Profits!
- Obama Speechwriter Caught Groping Hillary Clinton! Lack of Class on Display. – 12/5/8 The L.A. Times: “It might have seemed funny during the party. But a photo has surfaced in recent hours of President-elect Barack Obama’s newly-designated chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau, groping a cardboard cutout of the administration’s newly-designated secretary of State, Hillary Clinton…The shot of the 27-year-old writer with his hand on the 60-year-old cardboard senator’s breast reportedly appeared for about two hours on a Facebook page…before disappearing, along with numerous other Favreau pictures, including one of him dancing with the cardboard female secretary-designate. An Obama spokesman says Favreau has apologized to the former first lady, who gave Obama a run for his massive piles of money during the Democratic primaries. The transition official said Favreau has “reached out to Sen. Clinton to offer an apology.” – He should be fired.
- Obama Lied, People Died – Smoking Scandal
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 2 – Steven Chu 12/17/8 – The U.S. Department of Energy says Barack Obama will name Dr. Steven Chu as the new Energy Secretary. “Chu, the current director of DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL),…won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1997 and has run LBNL since 2004…he was a professor at Stanford University and…is credited as an early advocate for finding solutions to climate change.” However, the Energy Department did not mention what a WordPress blogger called his “let’s paint the world white” idea: “Chu…wants to paint the world white. A global initiative to change the color of roofs, roads and pavements so that they reflect more sunlight and heat could play a big part in containing global warming, he said yesterday…Chu said that this approach could have a vast impact. By lightening paved surfaces and roofs to the color of cement, it would be possible to cut carbon emissions by as much as taking all the world’s cars off the roads for 11 years, he said.” — Save the Planet by making everything white. UPDATE 2/20/2009: From Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air website: “reporters asked him about OPEC output levels after a speech to a group of utility regulators. He responded that the issue was “not in my domain.” He confessed later to, er, “naivete.” File this away in the “Confidence Boosters”
- Obama Senate Seat Scandal # 2 Rahm-Rod-ing Valerie Jarrett – 12/18/2008 As scandal breaks about filling Obama’s Senate Seat, word leaks out that Obama point man Rahm Emanuel tried to shove Valerie Jarrett down Rod Blagojevich’s throat. With no promised reward for Blago, the Illinois Gov. told the new Prez, “No deal!”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 3 – Robert Gates -12/22/2008 Obama gets in big trouble with Code Pink and MoveOn for keeping Bush Defense Sec. Robert Gates & more than 150 of the 250 political appointees at the Pentagon. Liberals mad at Obama suggest there might not be any change they can believe in.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 4 Bill Richardson -1/3/2009 Gov. Bill Richardson removes himself from the running to be US Commerce Secretary, supposedly because of an on-going investigation into a possible “pay-for-play” deal in Richardson’s state. However, the Obama camp knew about that before it named him as its nominee to the post. So the real deal is? UPDATE 3/29/2010: Richardson is number five on Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s “Top 10” list of President Obama’s nominees and appointees who have resigned in disgrace.”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 5 Peter Orszag 1/4/9 – While Obama’s plans will create the largest deficit ever, he names another liberal blogger from the Brookings Institution (Rice is the other) who says “budget deficits could trigger a fiscal crisis!” Don’t we already have one?? I guess to Orszag, deficits only matter if a republican is in the White House. Blazing Deficit Hypocrisy! UPDATE 4/18/9: KOA Radio reports: “by 2016 the Obama deficit would reach $8.7 trillion, which is $2.9 trillion more than the deficits racked up by all presidents combined since 1789 (232 years).”
- Obama Senate Seat Scandal # 3 Reid Reportedly Says No Blacks – 1/4/2009 The bankrupt Chicago Trib says Harry Reid called Blago to tell him not to appoint 3 different men to the Obama senate seat, all of whom are black. Reid reportedly suggests 2 whites instead. UPDATE 1/6/9: Durbin & Reid refuse to seat Burris, keeping senate a whites only club. UPDATE 1/9/9: The Illinois Supreme Court pulls a King Herod and sent the whole Burris issue back to Pilate (the US Senate) today. The court said no signature is needed by the Illinois secretary of state and the Burris appointment by Blago is valid. More trouble for Harry Reider & the Half Black Prince! UPDATE 1/12/9: At Obama’s command, Reid & Durbin cave, and allow Burris to be seated. UPDATE 1/15/9: Burris seated today. UPDATE 2/19/9: Burris still under attack as some try to oust him. UPDATE 2/24/9: Dick Durbin asks Burris to leave, still going for the whites-only club. Burris says no.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 6 (& possibly Lobbyist Scandal # 1) Leon Panetta
- Obama Flip Flopped on Capturing Osama Bin Laden January, 2009 – Politico: “During the presidential debates last year, Obama declared that capturing or killing Osama bin Laden “has to be our biggest national security priority.” In his first TV interview after winning the election, he said the terrorist leader was “not just a symbol. He’s also the operational leader of an organization that is planning attacks against U.S. targets,” and that the additional troops being sent to Afghanistan would hunt him down because “capturing or killing bin Laden is a critical aspect of stamping out Al Qaeda.” Bin Laden’s significance to Obama dissipated during the transition. By the time Obama gave another interview in early January, he said killing or capturing bin Laden was not necessary to “meet our goal of protecting America.” A few months later, when he announced his Afghanistan troop surge, he made no reference to the hunt for bin Laden.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 7! Carol Socialist Browner – Obama Administration says being socialist is “Not a Problem.” OMG, you’re kidding right? Nope. Obama spokespal Nick Shapiro says the fact Obama’s pick for Climate Hoax Czar is a Socialist is simply, “not a problem.” That’s it. It certainly is a problem!! And a huge one at that! President Elect Barack Obama intends to lead this nation into Socialism. It worked so well for Europe that it’s “not a problem here.” Gag. UPDATE 9/18/9: Included on Sean Hannity’s the “President’s Top Ten.” Browner also is featured on our “Obama’s Most Unwanted List!” UPDATE 11/28/9 Carol Browner says the growing Climategate Scandal is no big deal as Obama heads off to Coppenhagen to negotiate a Climate Hoax treaty!
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 8! Eric Let ‘em Go Holder – Obama picks Eric Holder for Attorney General. Holder was involved in the pardons of Marc Rich and 16 Puerto Rican terrorists. Another lousy pick. Republicans with no guts don’t bother to oppose him. Obama gets praise and glory for appointing a minority (Holder is black), even though Bush got little credit for appointing minorities to cabinet positions. Holder’s law firm represents 17 Gitmo terrorists. Sure will be nice for them when Obama closes Gitmo!
- Obama’s Broken National Security Promise – KOA Radio reports Obama promised to conduct no national security business before taking office. However, he “had his advisors from the primarily leftist pacifist group United States Institute of Peace and transition staff (including Ellen Laipson and William Perry) conducting secret, “very, very high-level” meetings in Damascus with Syrian and Iranian officials, according to Jeffrey Boutwell.”
- Obama Breaks Promises Before Inauguration – On January 10th, Barack Obama told ABCDEmocrat News he won’t be able to carry out his campaign promises! You mean he lied?!! Now we have to listen to four years of “Obama Lied.” Great.
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 1 – The Barack Obama Coronation price-tag will be more than three times any other inauguration ever cost! UPDATE 1/19/2009: He’ll be spending $150-million! So big spending on the next CEO of our nation is okay, but other CEO’s have to skip the spa’s and the evil corporate jet rides? Blatant Hypocrisy. UPDATE tally was close to $175-million.
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 2 – Obama picks an anti gay-marriage pastor to speak, creating commotion over what inclusiveness means. Obama chose Rick Warren, evangelical pastor and author. Geoff Kors, of Equality California said “Appalling. If that’s Obama’s idea of a new day, we are in a lot of trouble.” UPDATE 1/21/09: Warren actually said “Jesus” during the prayer!
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 3 – Obama picks a Muslim “scholar” to speak at his coronation prayer service January 21st who is the leader of a group that federal prosecutors say has ties to terrorists! Yet another instance of Obama befriending terrorists. She is Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America. In July 2008, federal prosecutors in Dallas filed court documents linking her terror group, Hamas, which is hell-bent on the destruction of Israel.
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 4 – Obama sells only inauguration day interview to ABC for the $2-mill they paid to sponsor the DC Neighborhood Ball!
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 5 – KOA Radio reports Obama becomes the first President ever to skip the “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball, which is held in honor of Medal of Honor recipients, Purple Heart recipients, paralyzed veterans and other military heroes. Obama did, however, find time to attend the Neighborhood Ball, which was filled with Hollywood’s ultra elite.”
- Obama Inauguration Scandal # 6 1/20/9 So who paid for Obama’s big party? From Politico and the Wall Street Journal: “Wall Street employees have been the largest single source of private donations, and many of the contributions have been channeled through financial-services executives who have put together bundles of donations worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. “The preponderance of large donors and the fact that so many come from an industry receiving government handouts comes as the president-elect has sought to keep his inauguration free of special interests,” The Journal observed. Bundlers from the financial sector include executives from Citigroup Inc. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., two firms that have accepted billions of dollars each in bailout money from the federal government.”
- Obama Inauguration Mistake – 1/20/9 New York Post: “In the third sentence of his first speech as president, Obama said, “44 Americans have now taken the presidential oath.” The correct number is 43, as Grover Cleveland served twice.”
- VP Biden Doesn’t Know Name of Supreme Court Justice!– 1/20/9 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “Biden misspoke when he told a cheering crowd of supporters, “Jill and I had the great honor of standing on that stage, looking across at one of the great justices, Justice Stewart.” Justice John Paul Stevens — not Stewart — swore Biden in as vice president.”
- Obama Broken Promise on Iraq War #1 – Jan. 21, 2009 -On his first full day in office, Obama breaks a promise he made in July, 2008. Fox News reports Obama said he would hold a full cabinet meeting his first day to set a new course to get out of Iraq. He did not hold the meeting & instead plans to get troops out of Iraq “in good time” while adding to forces in Afghanistan!
- Obama: Do as I say, not as I do – Jan. 21, 2009 – KOA Radio reports David Axelrod says Obama likes to be warm and keeps the oval office so hot you could grow tropical plants in there! Odd, considering On May 19, 2008, Obama chided Americans that it is wrong for them to keep their thermostats on 72 degrees and stated, “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.”
- Obama Executive Orders Scandal – Jan. 22, 2009 – Obama demonstrates he’s not ready for prime time as he signs executive orders, but has to ask his attorney what they actually say! How can you, in good faith, sign an executive order when you don’t know what it says!! Greg Craig had to help the President. Remember when they said Bush was too dumb to be president and Dick Cheney was actually doing the work? Maybe President Obama is too dumb & Greg Craig is actually doing the work!
- Obama’s Secretary of State Unconstitutional? Appointment Scandal #9 – Jan. 22, 2009 -With no objections from wimpy republicans, HIllary Rodham Clinton is sworn in as Sec. of State. Her senate vote increasing the pay for the Sec. of State made her ineligible for the position according to Article 1 Section 6 of the US Constitution.
- Obama Lobbyist Scandal # 2 William Lynn – Jan. 22, 2009 – A US Senate committee puts the nomination of William Lynn to be deputy defense secretary on hold. It seems he breaks the brand new Obama Administration Rules just set up the day before! Obama promised no former lobbyists would serve in his administration. That would rule Lynn out. Obama’s press team says rules are made to be broken! UPDATE: Obama administration says it’s in “the public interest” to grant Lynn a waiver!!! So all the other lobbyists hired in the past were hired against “the public interest???” UPDATE: Lynn gets approval without any trouble 2/11/9.
UPDATE 2/25/2010: CNN, a year later, realizes this is a bit of hypocrisy!
- Obama Breaks Promise to Bring Troops Home as one of His “First Actions” in the Oval Office 1/22/9 – Conservative Wisdom points out that Obama promised on 10/27/2007 to bring troops home as one of his first actions in the White House if he won the election. He won. He didn’t do it. Here he is making the promise…
- Obama Lobbyist Scandal # 3 William Corr – Again, Obama breaks his brand new no lobbyist rules! Twice in one week! This time it is with the naming of lobbyist William Corr to be Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services. So much for “higher standards” for Team Obama. “When I am president, they [lobbyists] won’t find a job in my White House.”
- Obama Terrorist Scandal # 3 – Talks with Terrorists (& Obama’s Apology Tour #1!) – Obama makes a big mistake in granting his first post-inauguration TV interview to Al-Arabiya (not a US network!) and says America must stop “dictating” to others. Fox News: “All too often the United States starts by dictating … and we don’t always know all the factors that are involved. So let’s listen. And I think if we do that, then there’s a possibility at least of achieving some breakthroughs. … My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect.”
- Obama Breaks Promise to Anti-Life Anti-Family Pro Choice Crowd 1/25/9 – Last year before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack Obama told pro-abortion activists: “The first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” With a single stroke of the pen, Barack Obama (promised he) would wipe away virtually every state law on abortion nationwide. Instantly, it will undo thirty-seven years of legal work, research, and educational successes that AUL has accomplished in the 50 states.” – UPDATE 7/16/9: Obama no longer has to worry about this Act. He has included it within the Obama Health Care Plan.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 10! James Steinberg 1/26/9- Obama’s pick for deputy sec. of state rewrites the Constitution saying in written testimony that Americans have a free speech right to tax-payer funded abortion! LifeNews: Steinberg claims Congress cannot constitutionally restrict taxpayer funding to perform or promote abortions. He says the Mexico City policy, which Obama rescinded “is an unnecessary restriction that, if applied to organizations based in this country, would be an unconstitutional limitation on free speech.”
- Obama Lobbyist Scandal # 4 (& Appointment Scandal # 11) Mark Patterson – And Again, President B-Rock breaks his own no lobbyist rule. No big deal, rules schmules after all. This time it is with yet another waiver and the appointment of Goldman Sachs Lobbyist Mark Patterson, named to be number 2 under Tim the Tax Cheat Geithner at the Treasury. Obama again demonstrates what a lousy judge of character he is in picking a tax cheat & lobbyist with conflicts of interest to head the treasury.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 12 – Picks a Maxim Model, “Feminist Paradox,” For an Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff!– 1/27/9 Gawker calls Ali Campoverdi a Feminist Paradox: “Alejandra Campoverdi…how did she make her way from a farmworker’s family to Maxim magazine to the White House? And does it say anything about the Millennial Generation’s take on feminism that she’s happily reconciled reality dating TV with an Ivy League education; lingerie photo spreads with a high-powered political job? Current gig: Assistant for a deputy chief of staff to the president. Pop-culture translation: Donna from the West Wing.” She used to date Obama speechwriter, Jon Favreau (the guy who groped the Hillary Clinton cutout during the campaign). Gawker also notes, “Alejandra Campoverdi zoomed from campaign intern to assistant to a deputy White House chief of staff with, we’re told, no other political experience. But the “flirtatious” Obama staffer supposedly wanted more. Judging from what we’ve heard, the Maxim model-turned-Harvard grad student has drawn as much notice within the president’s circle as she has outside of it. Campoverdi is said to have joined the campaign just this past fall; when she was installed in the West Wing in January, some staffers who count their experience in years rather than months were still waiting to hear about their futures.
- Obama Tax Cheat Scandal # 2 (& Appointment Scandal #13) Tom Daschle – The theme to this list: Barack does a lousy job of picking friends. AP reports former US Senator Tom Daschle, picked by Obama to lead health reform, “recently filed amended tax returns to report $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest.” Hey, it was okay for Geithner, so it’s okay for Daschle. Chicago-Style Democrat Senator Dick Durbin says Daschle “lost an election ending his public career…he went out in the private sector, and now he’s found himself having made a mistake and admitted to it. He took the steps necessary to start paying the taxes, make sure they’re paid. Now, that’s the right thing to do.” I doubt Durbin would say that about a republican! UPDATE 2/20/9: I was right. Durbin kept quiet about taxes Palin owes after laws were changed to hurt her. UPDATE 2/3/9: “President Obama admitted he made a “mistake” in his handling of Daschle’s Cabinet nomination, telling FOX News he takes full responsibility for a process that ended in Daschle withdrawing. “I consider this a mistake on my part, one that I intend to fix and correct and make sure that we’re not screwing up again,” Obama said. And this: All Voices reports Obama said “”So this is a mistake — probably not the first one I’m going to be making in this office, but what I’m absolutely committed to doing is fixing it.” – Excuse me, Mr. President, but somethin’ ain’t right with that statement. Don’t you mean “probably not the last one I’m going to me making in this office” or at least “not the first one I made in this office”?” UPDATE 3/29/2010: Daschle is number three on Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s “Top 10” list of President Obama’s nominees and appointees who have resigned in disgrace.”
- Obama Comedian Gaffe #1 – Democrat Matt Lauer tells Obama singer Jessica Simpson has replaced him on the cover of US magazine. Obama jokes that she is “losing a weight battle, apparently.” Not very funny and not a very nice, or presidential thing to do.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 14 Samantha Power 1/30/9 –Newsday: “Samantha Power, who earned notoriety for calling Hillary Clinton a “monster” while working to elect Obama president, will take a senior foreign policy job at the White House, The Associated Press has learned. Officials say Obama has tapped Power to be senior director for multilateral affairs at the National Security Council, a job that will require close contact and potential travel with Clinton, who is now secretary of state.” UPDATE 9/18/9: Power makes it to the infamous “The President’s Top 10” list put together by Sean Hannity!
- Obama Family Scandal #4 1/30/9- George Obama, the President’s half-brother who lives in a shack and earns $1 a day in Kenya, was arrested for having marijuana on Jan. 30th, 2009. This is the man Obama has done nothing to help even though he preaches (like during his acceptance speech) about caring for your brother. Interesting how the press can say this is Obama’s “HALF” brother, but they can’t say Obama is “HALF” black.
- Obama Breaks Promise to Payoff Trial Lawyers!
- Obama Tax Cheat Scandal # 3 (And Appointment Scandal #15) Nancy Killefer 2/3/9- This is ridiculous. The USA has elected an unqualified man with incredibly poor judgment as our President. You’d think after the first two tax-cheats he wanted to hire caused so much trouble, he might learn his lesson. Nope. Fox News reports “the administration had refused to answer how its choice [Nancy Killefer] to make government workers more efficient and more responsive had bungled her household payroll taxes.” She took herself out of the running for Obama’s newly created “Chief Performance Officer” position. She failed for 18-months to pay employment taxes on household help. UPDATE 3/29/2010: Killefer is number four on Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s “Top 10” list of President Obama’s nominees and appointees who have resigned in disgrace.”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 16! Obama’s Spy Man Company Breaches Top Secret Files 2/3/9- Rush Limbaugh says terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm cited for breaching sensitive files in the State Department. “The security breach, first reported by the Washington Times and later confirmed by State Department spokesman Sean McCormack, involved a contract employee of Brennan’s firm, The Analysis Corp., which has earned millions providing intelligence-related consulting services to federal agencies and private companies. McCormack confirmed the contractor had accessed the passport files of presidential candidates Obama, Clinton, and McCain and that the inspector general had launched an investigation. Newsmax says the main target of the breach was the Obama passport file, and that the contractor accessed the file in order to ‘cauterize’ the” Obama file, to make sure that whatever was in there was bottled up.
- Obama’s Chief of Staff an Illegal Renter! 2/3/9 –Gawker.com reports Rahm Emanuel is renting a basement from congresswoman Rosa DeLauro. A zoning administrator says the house is listed as “single family” and can’t be rented out.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 17! David Playboy Ogden 2/4/9- Obama’s pick for deputy attorney general, David Ogden, gets blasted by Fidelis for his risque legal work for Playboy and others Fox News calls “purveyors of nudity.” Ogden represented Playboy and prevented a federal court from releasing a list of distributors of what some said was pornographic material. From Tax Cheats to Porn Defenders, this Obama guy has a talent for picking the winners, eh? UPDATE 9/7/9: ABC News reporter Jake Tapper: Bizarre Conflict of Interest Okay with Team Obama (AGAIN)! “Deputy Attorney General David Ogden worked for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP…(He is) permitted to cooperate and participate in the investigation into possible prosecutorial misconduct in the case of U.S. v Theodore Stevens even though government lawyers whose conduct is in question are represented by (his) law firms.” See related Scandals dated 9/7/9.
- Obama Tax Cheat Scandal # 4 (And Appointment Scandal #18) Hilda Solis’ Family 2/5/9 – Obama tells press he has “learned” you can’t have “two sets of standards.” He just learned that??!! Despite that nonsense, yet another tax scandal has popped up for the Obamanator. This guy has only been in office 16 days! Seems the husband of Obama’s nominee for US Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, has more than $7,600 in tax liens on his auto repair business. Obama spokespal says they won’t punish her for her husband’s mistakes. UPDATE: KOA Radio reports Solis made her own mistake when she lobbied for herself as a member of Congress, violating House ethics rules.
- The Obama Corporate Jet Hypocrisy -Socialist President Obama spends the week spewing the evils of corporate jets used by overpaid execs, only to arrange a special jet ride for one US Senator to vote on his Porkulus bill! The Obama Administration learned Ohio Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown could not make it back to D.C. to vote because there were no seats available on commercial airlines. While execs can’t use those evil corporate Cessna Jets because they are on the public dollar, seems it’s okay for Obama The Hypocrite to arrange special plane rides for his pals ALSO on the public dollar. This president is a joke. UPDATE: 2/10/9 Fox reports Obama’s head of the National Economic Council, Larry Summers, flew on Citigroup’s corporate jet from the Democratic National Convention in Denver back to New York last year. UPDATE: 2/24/9 Repeats his promise to kill the evil corporate jet. UPDATE: 3/10/9 Judicial Watch says Nancy Pelosi is abusing her private military jet and using the Air force as a private airline. Fox reported more democrat hypocrisy saying Pelosi aide Kay King emailed the air force to complain about the types of planes they were allowing her to use: “It is my understanding there are NO G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable … The Speaker will want to know where the planes are.”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 19 Shauna Daly 2/9/9- President Obama misuses his power, appointing a 29-year old “Partisan Dirt Digger” as a White House Counsel Research Director, another new position he added despite the tough economy. The Washington Times has an exclusive story about Shauna Daly: “Though she is inside one of the most powerful legal offices, Miss Daly holds no law degree and doesn’t list any legal training on her resume. Her sole experience has been as an opposition researcher for Democratic political campaigns: She helped dig up dirt on rivals”. The move indicates an intention to use the White House Counsel’s office to keep Obama in power by digging up more dirt on Sarah Palin and any other potential threats to his 2012 campaign.
- Obama’s RV Lie at first Press Conference 2/9/9 – In his first prime time press conference, President Obama lied to the American people. He said, “There are people right now with good credit who can’t get loans to buy an RV.” He used the recreational vehicle example after being in Elkhart, IN where many are made. The statement is completely false. There are about 11,000 banks in the USA and 7,000-to-9,000 have no financial problems at all, and even make money. These banks have money to loan to people with good credit and a good down payment. It is a lie to say that people with good credit cannot get a loan to buy an RV and help the people in Elkhart.
- Obama has to Cover for latest Biden Gaffe! 2/9/9 New York Times: “MR. OBAMA: Major Garrett. Where is Major? QUESTION: Mr. President, at a speech Friday that many of us covered, Vice President Biden said the following thing about a conversation the two of you had in the Oval Office about a subject he didn’t disclose. “If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, if we stand up there and we really make the tough decisions, there’s still a 30 percent chance we’re going to get it wrong.” Since the vice president brought it up, can you tell the American people, sir, what you were talking about? And if not, can you at least reassure them it wasn’t the stimulus bill or the bank rescue plan and if in general you agree with that ratio of success, 30 percent failure, 70 percent success? MR. OBAMA: (Laughs.) You know, I don’t remember exactly what Joe was referring to, not surprisingly. (Laughter.)
- Obama’s Broken Tax Promise # 1
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 20 Judd Gregg 2/12/9-The President’s 2nd choice for Commerce Secretary also drops out saying the differences he had with Obama on the Deficit Stimulus Plan and the power-grab over the Census were the things that made him change his mind. Obama calls the news “something of a surprise.” It’s one of many appointment scandals, Mr. President. How can it be a surprise?? His 5th appointment screw-up since promising not to screw up again!
- Obama’s Caterpillar, Inc. Hiring Lie -2/12/09 Hot Air reports the news from 2/11/9 that quoted Barack Obama saying Cat would be hiring if his proposed Stimulus Bill gets passed, is not even close to being right! Cat CEO Jim Owens says “I think realistically no. The truth is we’re going to have more layoffs before we start hiring again.” Hot Air: “Yesterday’s…headline is today’s comedy gold. Note the reason, too, why he can’t re-hire people right away: Because the stimulus simply won’t do any stimulating fast enough.”
- Obama Steals The Census 2/12/9 -As Obama tries to test the waters to see how much power he can steal in violation of the US Constitution, his trial balloon about moving the control of the census into the White House is creating yet another scandal in his first month in office. Fox News reports: “Congressional Republicans say they’ll go to court against President Obama if he doesn’t scuttle his plan to move the census into the purview of the Oval Office. But the administration says there is no such plan, even after apparently (and privately) assuring some Democratic members of Congress that there is. Statements issued by the White House have seemingly backed both points of view.” Gosh, that’s surprising (not). UPDATE 3/18/9: Obama’s ACORN community organizers will be recruiting the workers for the 2010 census! So the democrat party’s ACORN, plagued with voter fraud problems already, will run a “fair” census???
- Obama’s Free House Scandal 2/13/9-At a Socialist Town Hall, Obama takes a question from Henrietta Hughes who say she is homeless and needs a house. Big Hollywood reports, “The next day the media was full of reports Hughes had a house. Another miracle by Saint Barack! See, it’s working! Now if you greedy, nasty conservatives would just get on board, the singing of “We Are the World” could begin! But wait, it wasn’t Saint Barack or even the Blessed Michelle who got the house for Ms. Hughes. It wasn’t the government bureaucrat or stimulus package that found the house for these poor folks, either. No, it was a nice lady named Chene Thompson, and who is Chene Thompson? Is she a “progressive” who cares about her fellow Americans? Is she a Hollywood celebrity? Is she even a Democrat? No. Mrs. Thompson is the wife of a Republican State Representative.” The press left that part of the story out so the Obamanator could part the seas.
- Obama Sneaks Money to ACORN -Republican John Boehner reveals Obama sneaks money into the Deficit Stimulus Plan for his democrat partisan pals at ACORN for neighborhood “stabilization” (creating more democrat voters makes a neighborhood more “stable” I guess)
- Obama’s “Unprecedented Transparency” Lies: 7 Broken Promises! 2/15/9-Extremist Radical President Obama promises unprecedented transparency in his new administration…while at the same time hiding the contents of the Obama Debt Stimulus Plan from the public. After promising at least 48 hours for everyone to see the text of the bill, it is rammed through the House and Senate in secrecy within a few short hours. This President makes a practice of saying one thing and doing another.
- Sweetness & Light reports along with the failure to make government transparent six other promises were broken: 2/15/9 …first, he said it would be “impossible” for congressmen to slip in pork projects,
- 2/15/9…said meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public,
- 2/15/9…said there would be no more secrecy (republicans didn’t even get to see the bill!),UPDATE: 2/25/9: Obama’s staff requires secrecy oaths on defense budget team.
- 2/15/9…promised public would have 5 days to look at the bill, UPDATE 4/22/9 Major Garrett at Fox reports a top Obama Adviser “conceded the president had not lived up to his promise to post legislation for five days on the Internet before signing it…the adviser said the White House will try to improve, but conceded it’s broken that promise. On the campaign trail, Obama made this pledge: ‘When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as a president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it, so that you know what your government’s doing.’ The stimulus bill, a pay equity bill, a bill expanding children’s health insurance, the omnibus spending bill funding the remainder of the 2009 budget and a public lands bill were all signed before the final version was posted for public review for five days.”
- 2/15/9…assured us “you’ll know what’s in it,”
- 2/15/9…and “we will put every pork-barrel project online. You can watch him make the 7 promises:
- Obama takes Vacation instead of signing so-called “URGENT” stimulus bill! 2/15/9 – The New York Post: ” After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway. Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine’s Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag. The president plans to spend the Presidents’ Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.”
- Obama Broken Tax Promise # 2 2/17/9 – The St. Petersburg Times says Obama promised a $3,000 tax credit for businesses that add an employee. His stimulus bill did not include the idea and it appears to be dead. It never got support in Congress, even from Democrats. Lawmakers were concerned the credit wasn’t enough of an incentive. Tax policy analysts said the credit would be an administrative nightmare.
- Obama’s Troop Surge Hypocrisy
- Obama Appointment Scandal #21 John Deutch – 2/19/09 Ronald Kessler at Newsmax: Deutch is on an advisory panel on spy satellites, violating Obama’s pledge to hold everyone in his administration to the highest ethical standards. Deutch ran the CIA for a short time & agreed in 2001 to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents. President Clinton pardoned him as he left office. “Deutch essentially walked away from what is one of the most egregious cases of mishandling of classified information that I have ever seen, short of espionage,” Sen. Richard C. Shelby, R-Ala.
- Obama’s Mileage Tax Super Fast Flip Flop -On Feb. 20, 2009 Obama transportation secretary Ray LaHood suggests motorists be taxed based on how many miles they drive. Fox news reports that mere moments later, his own spokeswoman Lori Irving shot the idea out of the sky. “The policy of taxing motorists based on how many miles they have traveled is not and will not be Obama administration policy.” Who is running this show? Obama, LaHood or Irving? You’re still not safe to drive though as some states are considering this tax!
- Obama Campaign Stiffed City of Chicago! His own Hometown! -On Feb. 20, 2009 Chicago Sun Times: “Chicago has yet to recoup the $1.74 million cost of President Obama’s victory celebration in Grant Park — despite a burgeoning $50.5 million budget shortfall that threatens more layoffs and union concessions.”
- Obama’s AG calls America a “Nation of Cowards!” -2/20/9 “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards“ – Eric Holder, President Obama’s Attorney General. So, he wants to talk about race relations? He’s brave and we’re all cowards? He’d like to start an open and honest debate about racial tension in the United States? Okay. We’ll bite. Here’s 8 points we would offer.
- Obama Appointment Scandal #22 – Louis Susman 2/22/9- The UK Telegraph & the NY Post: “Barack Obama has been embroiled in a cronyism row after reports that he intends to make Louis Susman, one of his biggest fundraisers, the new US ambassador in London. The selection of Mr. Susman, a lawyer and banker from the president’s hometown of Chicago, rather than an experienced diplomat, raises new questions about Mr Obama’s commitment to the special relationship with Britain.”
- Obama’s “Distractions” Lie – Obama has denounced “distractions that keep everyone from focusing on significant issues.” The Weekly Standard says Obama orders distractions for his own political gain: “but his White House aides cause a huge controversy by calling Rush Limbaugh the leader of the Republican party.”
- Obama’s Bipartisan Lie “I won.” – Meghan Clyne, New York Post: “Obama soared to victory on the hopeful promise of a new era of bipartisanship. During his inaugural address he even promised an ‘end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.’ Listening to Republican concerns about overspending was a nice gesture — until he shut down any hopes of real dialogue by crassly telling Republican leaders: ‘I won.’ (and advising them to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh) And who could forget the Rush Limbaugh flap — in which Obama’s top advisers, including chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, orchestrated a public relations campaign meant to undermine the RNC chairman, Michael Steele, by framing talk-radio personality Limbaugh as the real head of the Republican Party.
- Obama Becomes 3rd Bush Term! 2/22/9-As we have posted, President Obama seems to be the 3rd Bush Term he warned us McCain would be! Alternet reports: “the Obama administration has now taken action, and it’s appalling. He’s backed the Bush administration claim that terror suspects held at Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan have no constitutional rights.” And that’s what the democrats think of him!!
- Obama’s National Economic Council Leader Falls Asleep at Meeting! 2/23/9 – While this picture is from another cat-nap Larry Summers enjoyed, the Financial Times and Politics Daily report: “Summers, head of Obama’s National Economic Council, actually fell asleep at the podium. This is the same event where John McCain ranted about the cost of upgrading the presidential helicopter. From FT: “Although Lawrence Summers, head of the National Economic Council, fell asleep on the podium, most attendees, including Republicans, appear to have appreciated the exercise. There was even some light-heartedness.” – Yeah, gosh. Things are so bad with the economy for other people (but not me), I think I’ll just take a little nap to show how much I care!
- Obama’s Flip-Flop on Getting Tough with China
- Obama Energy Lie # 1 -2/24/9 Barack tells a joint session of congress “we will double this nation’s supply of renewable energy” in 3 years so 16.8% of our energy comes from hydro, solar and wind by 2012. Fox reports: “Under the status quo, the Energy Department says, it will take more than two decades to boost that figure to [just] 12.5 percent.”
- Obama Energy Lie # 2 -2/24/9 – B. Hugo Obama says “we import more oil today than ever before.” Fox says that isn’t true: “Oil imports peaked in 2005 at just over 5 billion barrels, and have been declining slightly since. The figure in 2007 was 4.9 billion barrels, or about 58 percent of total consumption. The nation is on pace this year to import 4.7 billion barrels, and government projections are for imports to hold steady or decrease a bit over the next two decades.” & Tell your friends we get most of our oil from Canada (it’s true!).
- Obama Energy Lie # 3 -2/24/9 – President Obama: “We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy.” Really? Our entire survival depends on this one thing? Are you sure? And we have known this for decades? Maybe we should drill here, drill now.
- Obama Questionable History – 2/24/9 Obama promises to save the United Auto Workers Union, “the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.” Many question that version of history saying Karl Benz of Germany invented the automobile in roughly 1885.
- Obama’s Broken Tax Promise # 3 – 2/24/9 – Obama told congress he lived up to his promise to give a tax cut to 95% of all Americans. That’s a lie and a broken promise and he knows it. 40% of all Americans don’t make enough money to pay any federal income tax at all. That means even a tax cut for everyone else would only be a tax cut for 60% of Americans. What he actually did was use your tax dollars to provide a welfare check to the 40% by giving them $13 a week in their paycheck starting in April. If his math is right and another 5% are to get tax hikes, then the remaining 55% of Americans actually will get that whopping $13 tax cut and the rest of us are screwed. UPDATE 4/19/8 – David Axelrod, amazed people could be upset enough to hold tea parties, repeats the lie: “The thing that bewilders me is this president just cut taxes for 95 percent of the American people. So I think the tea bags should be directed elsewhere because he certainly understands the burden that people face.”
- Obama’s Big Government Lie – “Not because I believe in bigger government — I don’t.” (2/24/09) The next day he proposed a budget with the biggest increase in the size of government ever!
- Obama’s Wall Street Executive LieKOA Radio reports along with energy, tax and big government lies, he had other false statements like,…claiming he would never help “a single Wall Street executive” even though his bailouts did precisely that!
- Obama’s Healthcare Spending Lie …and in a bizarre statement, he claimed using tax dollars to create a socialist medicine program would reduce the deficit (he made no attempt to explain that).UPDATE5/3/9: Obama: “the more we do on the (disease) prevention side, the more we can obtain serious savings down the road. … If we’re making those investments, we will save huge amounts of money in the long term.” Fox News says not so fast: “the New England Journal of Medicine cautioned that “sweeping statements about the cost-saving potential of prevention, however, are overreaching.” It said that “although some preventive measures do save money, the vast majority reviewed in the health economics literature do not.” And a study released in December (2008) by the Congressional Budget Office found that increasing preventive care “could improve people’s health but would probably generate either modest reductions in the overall costs of health care or increases in such spending within a 10-year budgetary time frame.”
- Obama’s Net Spending Cut Lie! 2/25/9 Obama, in the third debate, on the video below within the first minute: “what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut…. What I want to emphasize … is that I have been a strong proponent of pay-as-you-go. Every dollar that I’ve proposed, I’ve proposed an additional cut so that it matches.”
- Obama Broken Promise on Iraq War # 2 2/25/9- Team Obama says it will remove troops from the battlefields in Iraq by August of 2010, 3 months later than his promised 16-month withdrawal of all troops. That broken promise could cost 100 lives. The new Obama word is that we won’t leave completely until 2011 sometime. That’s two to three years later than his promised “get out now” by the end of 2008 campaign talk. “The days of our open-ended commitment must come to a close,” he told the Senate, according to a Jan. 31, 2007, Washington Post article. Well, we he said he would get the troops out, he only meant he’d take troops actively involved in combat in certain areas on Tuesday afternoons out. We have to leave a “residual” force, we are told now. That force could be 50,000 troops strong and CodePink, MoveOn.org and top Dems are royally pissed off about this one! The Pink-PanTers actually believed him when he said he would get the troops out of Iraq and end the war. UPDATE 6/5/9: U.S. Socialist News and Liberal World Report: “He also plans to leave tens of thousands of troops behind to train Iraqis, protect U.S. interests, and root out al Qaeda insurgents. Many antiwar Democrats backed Obama in key primaries and caucuses last year because they believed he would end the war as soon as possible. Some of them are disappointed; others are angry.”UPDATE 9/5/9: A citizen writing in to the Journal News of New York’s Lower Hudson Valley asks, “How many more kids will President Obama sacrifice before he keeps his promise to end the occupation of Iraq and bring our youth home, not just send them to Afghanistan to die? What will it take for him to see the lessons we learned in Vietnam and those that Russia showed us in Afghanistan? The president is great in one thing: convincing the media to avoid reporting the deaths, continual deaths that is, and not preventing the Democrats from self-destruction (boy, are they in for a surprise in November). I used to vacation every year on Martha’s Vineyard with our nine children; I wonder how many warriors died during Obama’s time there? I voted for him and now I’m ashamed because of the wars, and his other broken promises of transparency, the lobbyists etc.” – R.J. Deierlein, West Harrison, NY.” –R.J., We are reporting on the increasing Death Count. See the entire list here.
- Obama’s 3rd Pick for Commerce Broke Campaign Finance Laws (Appointment Scandal #23) 2/25/9 -Gary Locke was “fined a maximum $2,500 by state regulators after it admitted breaking campaign finance laws during two out-of-state fundraisers in 1996.” Even Obama jokes about his appointments: “I’m sure it’s not lost on anyone that we’ve tried this a couple of times.” Locke was breifly implicated in the ‘96 Clinton Chinese fundraising scandal, returned some checks, and was cleared of wrong-doing.
- VP Biden Doesn’t Know Internet “Number!”– 2/25/9 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “During a Feb. 25, 2009, interview on CBS’ “Early Show,” Biden encouraged viewers to visit a government-run Web site that tracks stimulus spending. When asked for the site’s web address, Biden could not remember the site’s “number.” “You know, I’m embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number?” he asked an aide standing out of view. “I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.”
- Democrat Warns Obama about Constitutional Violations
- Obama Appointment Scandal #24- Late-term abortion proponent put in charge of Health?! 2/28/9- In yet another poor character judgment, Obama names Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be in charge of health and human services. She’s only interested in keeping SOME Americans healthy, not all. Reports say this abortion extremist once had a reception attended by a late-term abortion provider who now faces criminal charges. She’s also the Governor who threatened not to send out state tax refunds owed to citizens. UPDATE 4/14/9 AP reports Sebelius lowballed donations she received from late-term abortion provider “Dr.” George Tiller-the-Killer. She said it was $12,450 in 8 years, AP says there was more than $23,000 in just three of those years! UPDATE 4/21/9 Sebelius gets approved by a Senate subcommittee to protect the health of most, not all, Americans. Still needs full Senate approval. UPDATE 4/23/9 Michael Steele calls for Obama to withdraw Sebelius’ name from consideration the same day she vetoes a law that would have changed the late-term abortion rules in Kansas. UPDATE 429/9 Obama & Emanuel, not letting “a good crisis go to waste,” use the Swine Flu outbreak to scare wimpy republican Senators into confirming Sebelius. The Sebelius Rebelius Fails.
- Obama’s Urban Czar Pay for Play Scandal (Appointment Scandal #25) – 3/1/9 The NY Daily News I-Team reports Adolfo Carrion, Jr., the man who is President Obama’s newly minted urban czar, “pocketed thousands of dollars in campaign cash from city developers whose projects he approved or funded with taxpayers’ money.” Amazing how most of these big appointment scandals go unreported as the national press tries to help its new President.
Five days before the 2008 presidential election, Senator Obama told a crowd in Missouri, “…we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor.” It was a goof, an admission he was not supposed to present to the public. Kind of puts the whole “You didn’t build that” and socialist healthcare crap into focus, eh?
10/30/2008 Obama’s Auntis here in the United States as an Illegal! He does nothing to help her. UPDATE 8/2/9: Obama’s Aunt, Zeituni Polly Onyango, now lives in public housing in Boston! No word on her deportation yet. Obama still does nothing to help her. UPDATE 2/4/2010: She’s still free-loading
according the Boston Herald!
12/3/2008 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online writes: “When Obama flip-flops in a direction that I prefer, should I still roll out the “all statements from Barack Obama come with an expiration date, all of them” disclaimer? From the Houston Chronicle: ‘President-elect Barack Obama has shelved a proposal to slap the oil and gas companies with a new windfall profits tax because oil prices have dropped so much in recent months, the transition team confirmed today… Obama’s proposal had called for using the proceeds from the tax to give American consumers an energy rebate worth up to $500 per individual or $1,000 per married couple….”
12/8/8 – Obama said he quit smoking when, in fact, he had not. Obama lied to the American people about an issue that takes thousands of lives each year. He promises not to smoke in the White House though. UPDATE 12/2010: Two years later, National Democrat Public Radio (NPR) says it’s just too much information for us to know that Obama lied about having stopped smoking! Can we defund NPR already?!
– 1/5/2009 Democrats Feinstein & Rockefeller are ticked off Obama not only picked Panetta to run the CIA, but didn’t ask them or tell them before it all hit the media! Another headache for Obama; people on both sides of the aisle say Panetta is unqualified. Panetta was the key advisor when Clinton decided against taking Bin Laden from the Sudanese, ready to hand him over. UPDATE: 2/5/9 Panetta took $700,000 in speaking & consulting fees from bailed out firms and companies doing biz with the government. His “consulting” sounds like lobbying work in the ‘no-lobbyists, I promise’ Obama administration. UPDATE: 2/19/9 Panetta sworn in.
2/1/9 – From Opposing Views comes this: “As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days. Then how does he explain the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which Heritage correctly describes as a payoff to trial lawyers? According to the Congressional website THOMAS the Lilly Ledbetter Act was passed by the Senate on January 22, then passed by the House of Representatives on January 27 and signed into law by President Obama two days later.”
-Within days of taking office, Obama breaks promise not to raise any taxes on those making less than $250,000 a year! Obama approves tax hike of 61-cents a pack on cigarettes after saying as a candidate: “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” UPDATE: 2/24/9: Obama repeats the lie saying those who make less than $250,000 will not pay higher taxes, “Not one Dime!” UPDATE 3/5/9: Obama’s budget raises 45% of its revenue from energy taxes that will be paid by everyone who fills a gas tank, pays an electric bill, or buys anything that was grown, shipped, or manufactured. UPDATE 3/24/9: Neil Cavuto on Fox reported Obama’s budget raises taxes on those making above $209,000.
2/18/9-Candidate Barack Obama was very vocal about how awful troop surges were. He stood firm in demanding the Bush surge was a mistake and only admitted to Katie Couric that surges actually worked after a good deal of badgering by her. On 7/22/2008 he told Couric, “There is no doubt our troops helped reduce violence (In Iraq, However) Those trrops could have gone to Afghanistan.” Not quite a full admission the surge worked, but certainly a partial one! Now, that he isn’t playing politics on TV anymore and actually has the job (wonder if he realizes that yet?), he has suddenly changed his tune! The Obama Troop Surge in Afghanistan suddenly is a good idea! The MSM aren’t even talking about this. UPDATE 2/20/9: Fox News followed our lead and did start talking about it!
2/24/2009 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online: “Yet Another Obama Statement Reaches Its Expiration Date. Press China to Live Up to Human Rights Standards: From Tibet to cracking down on democracy and religious freedom activists, China has failed to live up to international standards of human rights. Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe the United States has to be frank with the Chinese about such failings and will press them to respect human rights. — fact sheet distributed by the Obama campaign during the 2008 campaign. [Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton] went out of her way to downgrade human rights, placing economic, environmental and security relations above the abuse of countless individuals under Chinese rule”
-2/25/9 America’s Watchtower: Democrat senator Robert Byrd, sent a letter to President Obama warning him that he is pushing the constitution’s limits in regards to Obama’s appointment of all of these “czars” to oversee issues (health reform, energy, climate change, urban issues) that are supposed to be handled by the legislative branch of the government. UPDATE 4/18/9 Byrd still upset.UPDATE 10/6/9:
Fox News reports liberal U.S. Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin wants to know if all of these Czars have to answer to congress. “Feingold said, “It’s not good enough to simply say, ‘Well, George Bush did it too.'”…White House counsel Gregory Craig…said some presidents have used such special advisers, or czars, to undermine Congress, but “that is simply not the case in the current administration.” Feingold also was critical of the administration for declining to send a witness to the hearing. “The White House decided not to accept my invitation … to explain its position on the constitutional issues we will address today,” Feingold said, referring to the Senate’s role in confirming top officials. “That’s unfortunate. It’s also a bit ironic since one of the concerns that has been raised about these officials is that they will thwart congressional oversight of the executive branch.”
On 9/4/11, ConservativeAmerican.org discontinued the list. It was simply too much work to keep up with all of the Team Obama lies and broken promises. And, the majority of voters were not even willing to listen to the truth about Obama. As history taught us, President Obama was easily reelected in 2012. People still believed the “If you like you plan, you can keep it” lie. Only after the President broke that promise, one that impacted tens of millions of Americans, did citizens start to wake up and realize who the REAL Barack Obama is. This list is presented to all of those now willing to look into Obama’s past.
