- Obama Libyan Scandal # 26 – Lies About Rapid Action Against Libya! – 3/28/11 From Fox Nation: “We have already engineered the most rapid and forceful set of sanctions [against Libya] that have ever been applied internationally.”–President Obama, March 3, 2011 The uprising began on Feb. 15, and on February 26 the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 1970, which imposed travel bans on key officials, froze assets and referred Gaddafi and other members of his government to the International Criminal Court. That’s 11 days. By contrast, after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990, the UNSC passed Resolution 660 condemning it the very same day. It then followed up four days later with sweeping sanctions against Iraq, including a broad import ban. So, in that case, the response was quicker and arguably tougher.” — He repeated his lie in his national address saying he took “Swift Steps.”
- Obama Libyan Scandal # 27 – Ignores Darfur and Still Claims War in Libya is a “Humanitarian Effort” – 3/28/11 The Washington Post has the 2007 Obama quotes on Darfur: “The United States has a moral obligation anytime you see humanitarian catastrophes,” Obama declared. “When you see a genocide in Rwanda, Bosnia or in Darfur, that is a stain on all of us, a stain on our souls. .?.?. We can’t say ‘never again’ and then allow it to happen again, and as a president of the United States I don’t intend to abandon people or turn a blind eye to slaughter.” – ConservativeAmerican.org points out that is exactly what both he, and his liberal blogger turned UN Ambassador Susan Rice, did. Rice wants a no-fly zone over Darfur too. But, no oil in Darfur, Obama is not interested. Back to the Washington Post: “Stirring rhetoric, yes. But once Obama became president, the Darfur crisis appeared to fade in importance. Rather than confront the Sudanese government, as candidate Obama suggested he would do, the administration’s special envoy for Sudan, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, attempted to win Khartoum’s cooperation by offering incentives. As he memorably put it: “We’ve got to think about giving out cookies. Kids, countries — they react to gold stars, smiley faces, handshakes, agreements, talk, engagement…” –ConservativeAmerican.org asks, Cookies? Seriously? So much for using military efforts for humanitarian missions! Kind of makes it hard to explain Obama’s War in Libya too, wouldn’t you say? Where have all the “Save Darfur” people gone?! YouTube video below of Obama in 2007…
UPDATE 3/29/11: Fox News and the AP also report: “More than 1 million people have fled the Ivory Coast, where the U.N. says forces loyal to the incumbent leader, Laurent Gbagbo, have used heavy weapons against the population and more than 460 killings have been confirmed of supporters of the internationally recognized president, Alassane Ouattara. The Obama administration says Gbagbo and Qaddafi have both lost their legitimacy to rule. But only one is under attack from the U.S… n his pre-presidential book “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama said the U.S. will lack international legitimacy if it intervenes militarily “without a well-articulated strategy that the public supports and the world understands.” He questioned: “Why invade Iraq and not North Korea or Burma? Why intervene in Bosnia and not Darfur?” Now, such questions are coming at him.” — Hypocrisy on Parade!

3/21/11 Obama’s U.N. Ambassador, the self-described “cussing and spitting” Susan Rice, wasn’t even around for the U.N. Debate on Libya! Fox & Friends is reporting Rice was overseas for some lame mission conference and didn’t even bother to return for the first several meetings at the U.N. over Libya! Just like the Wisconsin Democrats, Rice simply left the “state” rather than do her job! Rice is a former liberal blogger who also wants a no-fly zone imposed over Darfur.
3/21/11Fox & Friends reported today that Team Obama inaction delayed the action taken in Libya over the weekend “by at least 8 days.” While President Obama dithered, Libyan rebels lost their lives. He was probably worried about the public learning of the $400,000 in U.S. economic stimulus money, designed to improve our economy, that he gave to two charities run by Qaddafi’s kids! My son told me the average person can process information and react to it in 1/10th of a second, but for the average politician it takes 8 days!!
3/21/11 The United States does not allow the government to target and kill the leader of a foreign nation. President Obama spoke about this and assured the American public the killing of Muammar Qaddafi was not the purpose of this illegal military action. Fox & Friends notes this contradicts what British officials are indicating when they say that the death of Qaddafi would be okay. As part of the military action, missiles destroyed a Qaddafi compound last night. Soooo, is Obama trying to kill Qaddafi or not?! — On March 28th, the President repeated his “decision” that Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi had to step down. Yet he contradicted that moments later saying a “mission of regime change would be a mistake.” Glad he cleared that one up for us. It all makes great sense now. NOT.
3/21/11 After years of lefty criticism from Barack Obama and other union democrats about how George W. Bush had no “exit strategy” for Iraq or Afghanistan, Barack Hussein Obama still has no exit strategy for Afghanistan, is using the Bush exit strategy for Iraq, and has NO EXIT STRATEGY at all for his war in Libya.
3/21/11 Bush also was criticized by the anti-war left because they felt he had no clear goals for his wars that would let us know when we had won. Their golden boy hero, Barack Obama, also has not presented clear goals to the American people so we will know when we have won.
3/21/11 The huge hypocrisy of President Obama, the socialist-union-democrats, and the anti-war left is on full parade for all to see. “I’m glad President Obama is stepping up to the plate to help the people of Libya obtain their freedom. However, one must take a moment to notice the irony and hypocrisy here. The man who was the anti-Bush, has now become George W. Bush! Is Obama waging war all about oil?! Is he doing this to keep oil prices low just so gasoline will cost less? Just so he can win reeleciton?! If he was Bush, this would be the claim!…”
3/21/11 As the Beaufort Observer notes, “one might argue that Obama has now muddled himself into exactly the same position George W. Bush faced when Hussein was killing thousands of Iraqi citizens. But strangely, Obama is taking exactly the opposite position that he took when there were comparable uprisings in Iran and such as we are now seeing in Bahrain and even other Arab countries. What is the justification for using American military force, or even threatening the use of such force, in Libya that was not present when Bush attacked Iraq? Has Obama not forgotten his criticism of Bush for doing in Iraq what he is apparently planning to do in Libya…” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes that when it comes to oil, Obama is far more concerned about Libya than he ever would be about Iran. So, more evidence of blood for oil Obama-style?!
3/22/11 Democrats who actually support Obama’s unconstitutional attack on Libya (there are some) are trying to say in Obama’s defense that he has an international coalition. Hmmmm. Fox News is reporting Obama has half the nations involved in his “coalition” that George W. Bush had supporting his war in Iraq. So much for repairing our reputation overseas! What a fraud this president is.
3/22/11 The Political Ledger says the war in Libya is more about bankers trying to make money than anything else! The site also suggests both conservatives and liberals are playing along with this lie. “When the no-fly zone mania started a week or so ago I had said that this would never stop at just a no-fly zone operation. What are we doing as a country anymore? Are we going to intervene in the turmoil of any country from this moment forward? …The Super Hawks that corrode the halls of congress promote this crap and they promote it for the people they work for. Those people aren’t you and me. Those people are the Industrial Complex and the Banking Complex. This is just another way of creating revenue & debt for their handlers… Stop drinking Kool-Aid. Conservative or Liberal! …Nowhere in the Constitution do we find the madness that is going on with the money being spent and the money being borrowed for these wars and such.” — The Political Ledger suggest that starting up the military draft again would put an end to this “madness.”
3/22/11 Rush Limbaugh blasted Obama today for not having a clear defined goal for the war in Libya. “If it’s all about protecting innocents, then why aren’t we in Darfur? Or North Korea? Or Arizona?!” Truth can be more humorous than reality. Obama’s U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice does, in fact, want Obama to have a no-fly-zone over Darfur!
3/22/11 Rush Limbaugh also noted today that unlike Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton and Bush, Obama broke with tradition and opted against addressing the nation with a televised message explaining the use of the U.S. military. Why no address? Why not at least try to explain what Obama is doing? Conservative Radio Talker Mark Belling suggested Obama does not even have a Libya War plan, so how could he explain it?! And from RealClearPolitics: “liberal satirist Jon Stewart, taking note that other presidents have never hesitated to explain themselves, no matter how dubious their reasoning, said this: “Mr. President, you don’t even think enough of us to lie to us.””
Der Speigel Magazine Exclusive Photos – Click for more
3/22/11 Howard Portnoy at Hot Air is on top of this breaking story: “…today’s bombshell, dropped by the British newspaper The Guardian, noting that members of a self-styled U.S. Army “kill team” posed for photos not with tortured prisoners but with corpses. Of civilians. Whom they had killed. The photos, Guardian reporter Jon Boone writes, were published in German news weekly Der Spiegel… So far, the White House has released no statement regarding the images or accounts. Neither, surprisingly, has the New York Times.”
3/23/11 While President Obama is flying around the world giving interviews, he says Libyan Leader Muammar Qaddafi may be “hunkering down.” Meanwhile, Hillary RahmRod Clinton says Qaddafi is making calls to friends to ask what he can do now and trying to find a way for him to leave the country. While both could be happening, these are certainly mixed messages to be sending out.
3/23/11 So we’re at war in Libya to establish a no fly zone? Is that the real reason? Hmmmm. Libya only had a few military planes in the first place, so what’s the huge benefit of a no-fly-zone when Qaddafi is killing people on the ground? A few Libyan military jets is worth hundreds of cruise missiles? Does anyone on Team Obama know what is really going on?
3/23/11 Or, perhaps we are in Libya to “impose” the value of Freedom onto another nation? In a 2009 interview with the BBC, President Obama said just because we value things like freedom, that doesn’t mean we have the right to “impose our values” on another nation. How can one “impose” freedom?!! And if that’s not what we’re doing in Libya, I again ask what the heck are we doing there?!
3/23/11 You remember the other day when two U.S. military airmen had to eject from their fighter jet over Libya just before it crashed? Sooooo, just thinking out loud here…. when those two landed, uhm, were their “boots on the ground?” Hey! Don’t get mad at me! I’m just sayin’. A wise guy? Certainly. A factual truth? You betcha.
3/23/11 Reporter Mark Knoller Tweeted last night the following: “Interviewed by CNN/Espanol, Pres Obama says “we don’t just have military tools at our disposal in terms of accomplishing Qaddafi’s leaving.” — Okay, so Obama first says Qaddafi must go and now says we can’t do that. Flip-Flop Anyone?! And the question remains… then what in the heck are we doing there?! Does even Obama know?!
3/23/11 Foxy Blondes News notes: “Republican lawmakers and oil industry executives are slamming President Obama for offering to help Brazil expand offshore drilling while U.S. production struggles to get back on its feet in the wake of the BP spill. The president, on the first leg of his trip to Latin America, said in Brazil over the weekend that his administration wants to assist the Brazilian government “with technology and support” in developing its oil reserves — a black gold mine he said could hold twice as much oil as U.S. deposits. “And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers,” Obama said. That message struck some at home as bizarre and misguided, considering the administration has stressed the need to wean the United States off foreign oil and move toward alternative fuels…” — Wow. That’s interesting. I thought Obama hated dirty, black, evil, corporate-jet flying big oil!! He’s supposed to be about flowers and windmills. What a Hyprocrite!
3/25/11 Team Obama even goofs up on the name of the military operation! Foxy Blondes News reports: “n Homer’s Odyssey, protagonist Odysseus spends 10 years trying to reach Ithaca… In President Obama’s “odyssey,” the U.S. military gets involved in a limited engagement against the “mad dog” of the Middle East — only one that’s supposed to settle down in a matter of days. As the U.S. military now concedes, perhaps “Operation Odyssey Dawn” wasn’t the best name for this supposedly in-and-out mission. “We probably should have chosen something else, because people have read into that — some type of long, enduring voyage,” Eric Elliott, spokesman for U.S. Africa Command, told FoxNews.com…”
3/25/11 Basically admitting a blunder, the White House today announced that President Obama will address the nation after all. In a few days. Monday he’s supposed to give the talk. Oh, and guess what, he’s thinking of expanding the mision!
3/26/11 As we mention in Obama’s Libyan Scandal #18 above, boots of U.S. Soldiers have already been on the ground. Bill O’Reilly reports “…other forces are on the ground too! “So we hear special forces are already on the ground in Libya. True, Col. Hunt? RET. COL. DAVID HUNT, U.S. ARMY: Yes, absolutely… The French GIGN have been in there and our special forces and our U.S. intelligence operatives and their assets. We do not conduct operations like this, large scale air operations, without people on the ground. They have been very successful, very good, not a lot of contact with the rebels because you don’t know who to talk to. But, yes, we have got intel gathering and rescue guys and special operations guys on the ground, have had them for about 12 days. O’REILLY: Now, do you agree with that, Col. Shaffer? LT. COL. TONY SHAFFER, FORMER ARMY INTELLIGENCE OFFICER: Yes, I have heard from my sources — I got a call from one of my key sources on Monday and that’s exactly what’s going on. Let’s be really clear here. You have got to have these individuals doing what Dave just said, especially when you are talking about trying to protect, and the stated goal here, Bill, is humanitarian support. So you don’t want to have weapons hitting the wrong targets. So, Dave is very good on the fact that we have special operations guys sitting there with laser designators…” — Meanwhile, The Liberal Lie website notes: “According to report from Camp LeJuene, North Carolina where the 26th MEU is based, 2400 Marines are on the ground in the city of Ajdubiyah, “preserving the safety of the civilians,” in this Libyan city who have been under attack from pro Qaddafi forces.”
3/26/11 Economy in Crisis has the Obama quote: “On December 7th, 2007 Barack Obama said “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation” ~ another broken promise thrown into the trash can of history as President Obama orchestrates regime change in Libya under the guise of humanitarian intervention.” — As Newsbusters reported, Couric-BS and MicroSoftNBC both neglected to mention the Obama hypocrisy on this.
3/26/11 Since the President won’t tell us until Monday night why he has troops in Libya, we’re still confused. Is he trying to Kill Qaddafi or sit down and negotiate with him? Foxy Blondes News says Team Obama was on the phone the other night with Team Qaddafi! Fox: “Libyan Foreign Minister Musa Kusa spoke by telephone Sunday night with assistant secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman, a senior State Department official intimately involved with the Libyan crisis told Fox News.” So perhaps the Official Obama Foreign Policy boils down to Tea with Terrorists!
3/27/11 The Orlando Sentinel notes: “Consider our man Scott Powers, who was sent over to the Winter Park home of Alan Ginsburg… as the designated “pool reporter” …for the fundraiser where Vice President Joe Biden is appearing on behalf of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson… to prevent Scott from mingling with the crowd, a member of Biden’s advance team consigned him to a storage closet — and then stood outside the door to make sure he didn’t walk out without permission…”
3/27/11 Foxy Blondes News reports just one day before Obama’s scheduled address, the administration still is disagreeing with itself!! “Obama said Saturday that intervening in Libya was “in our national interest,” but then Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the conflict, while of interest to the United States, was “not a vital national interest.” Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the strife was, rather, a “vital” interest to the United States’ allies in Europe…” — President Obama himself disagreed with Gates during his national address on the 28th, claiming the War in Libya was, in fact, in the national interest of the United States.
3/28/11 President Obama said, “The United States of America has done what we said we would do.” Uhm, Mr. President, sir? That’s a pretty low bar to set for yourself considering you didn’t tell the nation you would do anything! No one was clear on the goal of War, sir.
3/28/11 After saying, “To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader, would have been a betrayal to who we are,” the President changed tune only moments later and announced he’s brushing aside America’s responsiblity as a leader by handing off leadership to NATO this Wednesday!! Flip-Flop. Does anyone read his speeches ahead of time?! He emphasized that we’re NOT A LEADER in this, that we are instead a SUPPORTER. Reminds me of the old movie Rock-n-Roll High School, where the PA announcer for the school says, “And remember, if you can’t be an athlete, be an athletic supporter.” Uh-huh. He then changed the definition of being a “leader” to this: “Real leadership means others should step up… that’s the kind of leadership we’re showing.” This doesn’t even come close to making sense. Think about it. He said American Leading means handing over Leadership to others!!!
3/28/11 Obama said several times that our U.S. “interests and values” were at stake in Libya. Yet he did not indicate what he thinks those interests and values are. He came close once saying it was not in the national interest of the United States to stand by and allow a massacre to take place. That’s interesting. He has stood by for years while people continue to be massacred in Darfur! Later he even used genocide as an example of when our own safety might not be threated, but it could still be in our national interest to act. Explain Darfur, then please. Tell us why your own U.N. Ambassador, the self-described cussing and spitting Susan Rice, wanted a no-fly zone over Darfur when Bush was in the White House, but quickly dropped the request when she joined Team Obama!! How about when people rose up in Iran?! We stand by all the time! What’s different now? He continued to fail to explain that. Why not Syria? He was against Iraq, and Saddam Hussein was a bad dude there who massacred his own people! This is nothing more than solid bull feces!
3/28/11 Obama said Libya has been run by a tyrant for four decades. A tyrant? Really?! Then why did Team Obama try to sell $77-million in military equipment to this “TYRANT” just months ago? Only congress stepped in to put an end to that. Can you say Flip-Flop?
3/28/11 So Qaddafi’s a tyrant, eh? Just a big meanie to all of the people in Libya riiiiiiiiiight? “He compared them to rats.” Okay, Mr. Obama, then why did you divert $400,000 in money congress approved to stimulate the U.S. Economy so you could give it to Qaddafi’s kids?! What a hypocrite! He gave $200,000 each to two different Libyan “charities,” each one run by one of Qaddafi’s kids.
3/28/11 Obama said if he waited one more day to act, the people of Libya could have suffered a massacre. Not true. If it was, he really put the lives of Libyan citizens at risk while he dithered. Fox & Friends reported that his inability to make a decision delayed any action for “at least 8 days.”
3/28/11 Trying to explain his reasons for going to War in Libya without congressional approval, he listed four of them: horrific violence, our ability to stop that violence, their request that we stop that violence, and the fact he had a “coalition.” A coalition? His coalition that he bragged about was much smaller than the coalition he was against in Iraq when Barack was a U.S. Senator!! Hypocrite! He called it a “broader NATO coalition!” Not hardly. His four standards listed would put us in military conflict in many other nations, including Iran and Darfur. These were just words to Obama.
3/28/11 President Obama lied about Iran again too. He said, “Wherever people long to be free, they will find a friend in the United States.” Not true. Not when Barack Obama is President. He said the people longing to be free in Iran could “speak for themselves.”
3/28/11 “As President,” Obama said, “I refuse to wait for atrocities before I act.” Oh really? Can you say “Save Darfur?!” Iran? Syria?
3/28/11 “Failure to act would have had a far greater cost” for America, according to President Obama. This is another time when the President just tosses a piece of opinion out there without any facts. What did he offer to back this up? Nothing. What greater costs for America?
3/28/11 Obama’s “We Can’t Afford It” Lie – Obama pretended to know some people suggesting a larger war effort in Libya and said “we went down that road before in Iraq.” He said that effort took 8 years and one Trillion dollars and “We can’t afford to repeat” that. Really? Seriously? This from a man who created a false healthcare “crisis” (in a nation where 80+% like their health insurance and we have the best healthcare in the world) and then spent more than a Trillion dollars on it! And it didn’t take 8 years!
3/28/11 President Obama said no decision weighed more heavily on him than the use of military troops. I’m sorry, but I have to question that. When his own generals wanted additional troops in Afghanistan, he dithered and delayed for weeks on end. Why? Because the decision weighing more heavily on him was the ObamaCare Nightmare! I feel bad saying that about the President of the United States. But I feel worse that it is true.
3/28/11 He must have forgotten to set a date for the removal of all U.S. forces from the War in Libya.
3/28/11 In the Obama Administration’s never-ending effort to change the names of things, they are claiming it is not a “war” in Libya. Though the President did use the word “war” once in his national address yesterday, his team is officially calling this a “Kinetic Military Action!” A who-ey what-ey? This is like “overseas contingency operation” in place of War on Terror. What a joke! Oh, and if you’re wondering, one definition of Kinetic is to put things into motion. So it’s a moving military actions, but gosh, not a war.
3/28/11 From RedState: “The U.S.-led coalition is slowing its bombing campaign over Libya and pushing the boundaries of a no-fly zone westward toward Tripoli, but it will not provide close air support for opposition rebels, its commander said… but, according to reports, including this one from the AP, those weekend sorties included offensive missions flown by A-10s and AC-130s. Both of these platforms have anti-armor and anti-personnel capabilities, of course, but there’s just one thing at the core of their respective missions for some time now: Close Air Support for troops on the ground. The AC-130 in particular, with its pinpoint accuracy with rounds from 25mm to 105mm and its marathon loiter time, is a Close Air Support knockout artist when the US, et al possesses 100% true air superiority. The A-10, of course, is justly famous for the Gatling Gun around which its fuselage is constructed, and its “Devil’s Cross” shape is a favorite site of ground troops and forward air controllers alike…” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes this is yet another “mixed message” from Obama about getting rid of Qaddafi… or Not.
3/28/11 Just hours after the President announced he would hand over control of the war in Libya to NATO, NATO says wait just a cotton pickin’ minute! Foxy Blondes News is reporting NATO has put this plan on hold!! “NATO is reportedly delaying its planned takeover of military command in Libya as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice says the Obama administration has not ruled out arming Libyan rebels in their fight against Muammar al-Qaddafi.
3/29/11 An Admiral today said he is aware of “flickerings” of Al Qaeda being in and among the rebels fighting the Muammar Qaddafi regime in Libya. Continuing with its plan of utter confusion, Team Obama then contradicted that information when Hillary RahmRod Clinton said there is “no evidence” of that. Meanwhile the self-describe cussing and spitting Susan Rice says we might provide arms and weapons to the rebels. Sooooooooo, Team Obama may ARM AL QAEDA?!
3/29/11 The cussing and spitting Susan Rice was on ABC today with democrat party “reporter” G-Steph. She said the military mission in Libya is NOT about regime change. She then quickly changed her mind saying, “But on a national basis we obviously have” an interest in seeing Qaddafi leave. So, that’s clear now, right? We’re there to make sure he leaves but we’re not saying our kinetic military intervention thingy is helping us to achieve that goal. Got it? Yeah, me neither.
3/29/11So after Susie Rice cleared it all up, Hillary RahmRod Clinton also made sure she played both sides of the issue. She said today that Muammar Qaddafi “has lost legitimacy to lead” in Libya. So, he can’t lead anymore. But, that’s not why we’re there. We’re not there for regime change. Rush Hudson Limbaugh said today, “This is classic; ya take both sides of it” so the Obama administration can “win” either way. They sit back and wait to see what happens. If Qaddafi stays, they point out that’s what they said all along: that this wasn’t about regime change. If Qaddafi is ‘removed,’ they point out that’s what they said all along: that Qaddafi had lost his legitimacy to lead. Rush said Obama thinks his path to reelection goes through Tripoli! Nooooooow, does it make sense to you? Yeah, no. Me neither. The real OBAMA DOCTRINE is to play both sides of every issue. It is what we have consistently referred to as “The Obama Pattern.”
3/29/11 Barack Obama went out of his way to tell us what an awful Tyrant Muammar Gadhafi is. Hmmmm. That’s interesting. Obama’s own State Department, run by her Hillaryness, approved Khamis Gadhafi’s participation in an internship program with a big engineering firm from L.A.! Do we always welcome Tyrants into the U.S.? Is that some kind of official State Department policy? ABCDEmocrat News reports: “The trip was part of an internship program with Los Angeles-based engineering giant AECOM, set to span just over a month, and take Khamis Gadhafi, head of Libya’s elite Khamis Brigade, to tours and meetings with high-profile universities and companies from Houston to L.A., San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York and Boston,… But on the day… protests against his father’s regime rang out in Benghazi, Libya… an AECOM spokesperson said that instead of heading uptown to Columbia, Khamis hopped a plane and flew back to his home country that night… Less than a month later, Khamis was rumored to have been killed in an attack by a Libyan kamikaze pilot. The reports have not been confirmed…”
3/29/11 Even the Associated Democrat Press caught some Obama untruths in his address to the nation last night. “In transferring command and control to NATO, the U.S. is turning over the reins to an organization dominated by the U.S., both militarily and politically. In essence, the U.S. runs the show that is taking over running the show.” AP says Obama may be trying to make it LOOK like he’s handing over power to someone else, “the United States will not be taking a back seat in the campaign.” UPDATE: After what was no doubt a loud phone conversation with Obama, NATO did take over the mission Thursday (supposedly).
3/29/11 The Associated Democrat Press also says Obama’s claim of a narrow focus on saving lives is not true. “The scope of the mission appears to be expanding and the end game remains unclear. Despite insistences that the operation is only to protect civilians, the airstrikes now are undeniably helping the rebels to advance. U.S. officials acknowledge that the effect of air attacks on Qaddafi’s forces — and on the supply and communications links that support them — is useful if not crucial to the rebels…”
3/29/11 Could someone decide how to spell Gadhafi?! Or is it Qaddafi? Anyway… The Associated Democrat Press reports: “Qaddafi’s ground forces remain a potent threat to the rebels and civilians, according to U.S. military officials. Army Gen. Carter Ham, the top American officer overseeing the mission, told The New York Times on Monday that “the regime still overmatches opposition forces militarily. The regime possesses the capability to roll them back very quickly. Coalition air power is the major reason that has not happened.”
Speaking at Georgetown University, Obama said nothing he has done has made a bit of difference! “I remember because I was in the middle of a presidential campaign… And because we were at the height of political season, you had all kinds of slogans and gimmicks and outraged politicians” — Yeah, including Mr. Obama! [OBAMA:]“…they were waving their three-point plans for $2 a gallon gas. You remember that — “drill, baby, drill” — and we were going through all that. (Laughter.) And none of it was really going to do anything to solve the problem. There was a lot of hue and cry, a lot of fulminating and hand-wringing, but nothing actually happened. Imagine that in Washington. (Laughter.) The truth is, none of these gimmicks, none of these slogans made a bit of difference.” — So Obama admitted despite his fulminating and hand-wringing, nothing actually happened. None of his gimmicks or slogans made a bit of difference!
3/31/11 Speaking at Georgetown University yesterday, President Obama missed a few words on his teleprompter and told the students they had the honor of going to a school with a history of not being able to resolve problems! He apparently was supposed to say that they went to a school IN A TOWN with a history of not being able to do anything.
3/31/11 From Power Line: “Obama continued with another favorite liberal talking point: [Obama]: “Right now the industry holds tens of millions of acres of leases where they’re not producing a single drop. They’re just sitting on supplies of American energy that are ready to be tapped.” [Power Line]: Think about it: does Obama seriously expect anyone to believe that there are valuable leases containing substantial amounts of recoverable oil, which the oil companies are declining to develop out of…what? Sloth? Perversity? In fact, there are a number of reasons why oil is not developed from a particular leased area. The most common is that there didn’t turn out to be enough recoverable oil at current and anticipated prices to be worth the enormous expense entailed by petroleum recovery. Oil companies take leases, they explore, and a large majority of the time they strike out. There are other reasons, too…”
3/31/11 The liberal website selling itself as “Politifact” even says Obama has broken his promise to help people in foreclosure. “When it comes to President Barack Obama’s promise to create a foreclosure prevention fund, he’s kept to the letter of law, but his administration has completely failed to meet its spirit. For that, we’re moving this our rating to Promise Broken… Back during the campaign, Obama said he would create a… fund to help homeowners facing foreclosure… as many months went by, the program never lived up to its promise. As of January 2011, the program had given permanent loan modifications to only about 500,000 homeowners. The news website ProPublica has extensively investigated the program and reached a number of dismal conclusions. “With millions of homeowners still struggling to stay in their homes, the Obama administration’s $75 billion foreclosure prevention program has been weakened, perhaps fatally, by lax oversight and a posture of cooperation—rather than enforcement—with the nation’s biggest banks…”
3/31/11 The Obama Administration’s headline in the NY Times is “CIA Agents in Libya Aid Airstrikes and Meet Rebels.” CIA IN LIBYA. How did that American Idol song go about “Boots on the ground, boots on the ground… bla, bla, bla.. boots on the ground?!” From NYT: “The Central Intelligence Agency has inserted clandestine operatives into Libya to gather intelligence for military airstrikes and to contact and vet the beleaguered rebels battling Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s forces, according to American officials. While President Obama has insisted that no American military ground troops participate in the Libyan campaign, small groups of C.I.A. operatives have been working in Libya for several weeks as part of a shadow force of Westerners that the Obama administration hopes can help bleed Colonel Qaddafi’s military, the officials said…” –ConservativeAmerican.org can just imagine Obama spinning this one– “Well, there actually are no boots on the ground in Libya and there is no war. We call it a kinetic military action involving foot protection devices being used on matter such as soil!” If the boot fits, Mr. Obama. Or as OJ would say, “If the boot doesn’t hit on ground, you must be full of @*@&!” His first “no boots” lie is here and the second one is here.
4/1/11 It is amazing how many wack jobs work for rookie Socialist President Obama. From Foxy Blondes News: “USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah told the House Appropriations State and Foreign Ops subcommittee on Wednesday that the budget plan, which would cut $61 billion in federal spending, would lead to the deaths of 30,000 kids in a malaria control program that would have to be scaled back, 24,000 from a lack of immunizations and 16,000 from a lack of skilled attendants at birth…” And the lame sleeping republicans didn’t say a word!
4/3/11 The anti-Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, who claims to have “put an end” to torture (pretty easy to do when there never was any), just appointed a member of George W. Bush’s Guantanamo “torture” team to his own administration!!! How can this be?! AmericaBlog News reports on the uber-liberal Salon’s report that stated, “One of the most intense scandals the field of psychology has faced over the last decade is the involvement of several of its members in enabling Bush’s worldwide torture regime. Numerous health professionals worked for the U.S. government to help understand how best to mentally degrade and break down detainees. At the center of that controversy was — and is — Dr. Larry James. James, a retired Army colonel, was the Chief Psychologist at Guantanamo in 2003, at the height of the abuses at that camp, and then served in the same position at Abu Ghraib during 2004. Today, Dr. James circulated an excited email announcing, “with great pride,” that he has now been selected to serve on the “White House Task Force entitled Enhancing the Psychological Well-Being of The Military Family.” — The reports said James met at the White House with Michelle Obama and other White House officials on last week. More hopeless un-change the liberals can believe in… if they want to.
4/4/11 The Foxy Blondes news website headline reads: “Obama Flip-Flop: 9/11 Suspects to Face Guantanamo Military Tribunal.” So much for the “fair trial” nonsene Team Obama had been pushing off and on since day one. VP Joey Buttafuoco Biden even promised the nation Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would be convicted after his “fair trial.” What happened to Eric “let ‘em go” Holder insisting that military tribunals were bad, nasty Bush-like things?! What happened to Obama promising to restore Habeus Corpus? This is so much BS, the BS meter actually broke. He’s been sitting in Club Gitmo for years while Team Obama tried to figure out how to get out of its ridiculous position that he should be tried in New York City, just blocks from where the 9/11 attacks took place. This news comes on the same day that BHO announces he will seek reelection with his hopless un-changey thingy.
4/5/11 Foxy Blondes News reports: “Heather Higginbottom, who most recently served as a policy adviser for the administration, had drawn tough criticism from Republicans who claimed she didn’t have the chops to become deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget. Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Budget Committee, earlier said her experience for the job was “stunningly lacking.” …Afterward, Sessions called for Obama to withdraw her name, comparing the nomination to “installing, in the midst of a war, a battlefield general who has never had a day of military service.”
4/5/11 The Obama Audacity of Hypocrisy was on parade again today. Speaking on the federal budget situation (it’s not a crisis) the President said, “What we are not going to do is once again put off something that should have been done months ago.” That’s odd. That’s precisely what he did for all of 2009! Obama’s Socialist Union Democrats went through the entire year of 2009, when they controlled everything in Washington, without a budget. How did they do it? They passed a continuing resolution to keep things going. But Obama’s pancake house was open today as the Flip-Flopper-in-Chief now says he can’t stand for things like that!
4/5/11 The President of the United States today admitted that his way of doing things is “not a way to run a government!” Amazing. Saying he won’t stand for continuing resolutions (see the scandal above this one) anymore and that something should have been done months ago, Obama added he doesn’t want another continuing resolution. “We’ve already done that twice,” Obama said. “That is not a way to run a government.” We agree, Mr. President. That’s no way to run a government. So shame on you for doing so for an entire year! You and your lame socialist union democrat liberals never even tried to pass a budget in 2009 and instead chose the coward’s way out and used the continuing resolutions. So save your pretend outrage now. You may have tricked reporters who noted you were “obviously frustrated” today, but you didn’t trick us. We’re not buying your ridiculous claim that you suddenly have seen the error of your ways and no longer want to govern this way. This guy is simply beyond belief.
4/9/11 Mark Hyman at the Washington Examiner: “At issue was access to federally backed financial aid by students attending career colleges. The Education Department indicated it was considering new regulations that would restrict such aid. The hearing of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee chaired by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, portrayed career colleges as rogue operations needing to be reined in. According to the GAO report, career colleges were guilty of shady recruiting practices… The GAO alleged that representatives at all 15 schools tested in a sting operation made deceptive or otherwise questionable statements to undercover investigators posing as prospective students. The GAO further claimed four colleges encouraged fraudulent behavior. Really? All 15 schools behaved badly? There wasn’t a single school that followed the rules? …The GAO quietly reissued its report. The revised report was so dramatically different that it called into question either the competence or the integrity of the GAO. In general, it was GAO investigators who suggested deceptive or fraudulent activity with representatives merely acknowledging the investigators’ schemes. There is more. A coalition of career colleges obtained audio recordings of the GAO investigation and had them analyzed. The results found numerous instances in which the GAO fabricated entire conversations…”
4/11/11 In January of 2010, President Obama told the nation he would cut $1-trillion in spending to pay for the $1-trillion he spent on his porkulus deficit stimulus plan. As Rush Limbaugh noted on his radio show today, instead the President “is dragged kicking and screaming about $38-billion in cuts.” That’s the amount he agreed to cut to finish a budget for the current fiscal year. That’s $962-Billion short of what he said he would do.
4/11/11 The Associated Democrat Press even says Obama has failed on his promise of “change.” Ben Feller writes at AP: “President Barack Obama promised to change Washington’s ways. Yet he’s as caught up in them as ever. As the week began, Obama kicked off his re-election bid with a sunny video of people talking about their hopes and needs, the very image of life outside Washington politics. By week’s end, Obama was mired in budget negotiations, canceling trips and scrambling to stave off a government shutdown that could only undermine the public’s faith in his leadership… the government was on the brink of closing, and many people were wondering how that could happen, or why. This is change?
4/11/11 President Obama also told the nation in January of 2010 that he would make sure the federal government did what Americans were having to do: Make a budget and live within it. As Rush Limbaugh noted today, no budget was ever made!! Obama and his democrats, who controlled the US House, the White House and the US Senate, never bothered to even pass a budget! That way Obama did not have to live within it!
4/11/11 Now THIS is “getting tough” on terrorism? More GROPE & CHANGE from Team Obama 2012…
4/11/11 The Alexander Higgins Blog says Obama is lying about radiation from the Japanese nuclear disaster reaching the United States. “Let me be clear,” Obama said (his usual prequel to a lie). “We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the West Coast.” Higgins says, “Radiation from Japan has been detected in drinking water in 13 more American cities, and cesium-137 has been found in American milk—in Montpelier, Vermont—for the first time since the Japan nuclear disaster began, according to data released by the Environmental Protection Agency late Friday.”
4/11/11 At least that’s what the uber-lefty FireDogLake website calls it! “Obama promised that US troops would be out of Iraq by the end of 2009 – well actually he played semantics and said “combat troops” but American voters believed that his election signaled the end of our occupation of Iraq. Now we’re in 2011 and not only have we not left but Obama is angling to keep US forces in Iraq past the December 2011 deadline for the removal of all US forces. Not only was Sec. of Defense Gates in Iraq this week lobbying Iraqi politicians to “ask” for us to stay, …US Ambassador James Jeffrey told reporters April 1 that the embassy, already the biggest in the world, planned to double in size next year to 18,000 personnel… What will we say when Obama tries this deadly bait and switch?”
4/11/11 Foxy Blondes News: “If President Obama knew then what he knows now, he would not have voted against raising the debt limit in 2006. That was the explanation trotted out by the White House Monday, as it sought to square the administration’s pleas to Congress to lift the debt ceiling by next month against Obama’s voting history. As a senator in 2006, Obama voted against raising the debt limit. But White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the president now views that vote as a “mistake.”
4/12/11 Gun owners have picked up on President Obama’s latest hypocrisy over gun rights. He wants to ban assault rifles, right? Okay, so how about the assault rifles he and her Hillary-ness are allowing to be sold to Mexican drug cartels as part of the Obama gun-running scandal?! Hmmmm?
4/13/11 President Obama feigned interest in reducing the nation’s debt today in a speech designed to counter Conservative American Paul Ryan’s proposal to trim $6-Trillion from the federal debt in 10 years. Obama said, “From our first days as a nation, we have put our faith in free markets and free enterprise as the engine of America’s wealth and prosperity. More than citizens of any other country, we are rugged individualists, a self-reliant people with a healthy skepticism of too much government.” – Who is this guy? He doesn’t believe that! His socialist takeover of banks and car companies proves it. Rugged individualists? He’s spent time traveling the world apologizing for the United States. Now we’re supposed to believe that he loves us?! He’s right about American’s being skeptical of too much government. He just doesn’t believe there is any such thing!
4/13/11 President Obama: “We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, hard times or bad luck, a crippling illness or a layoff, may strike any one of us. “There but for the grace of God go I,” we say to ourselves…” say WHAT?! Democrats don’t talk about God, what kind of nonsense is this? The President who spends his Church time on the golf course is suddenly part of the “we” that believes in the grace of God?! Then he told us that because of that belief in the grace of God, “and so we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities.” Trying to tie God to social handouts that, after 40 years of failing, only serve to hold people down is quite a stretch. Even for Obama!
4/13/11 The President claimed today that the United States would not be a great nation without socialist welfare handouts like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and unemployment insurance. So, Obama just said our nation was NOT A GREAT COUNTRY for the first half of our history!! Obama: “we would not be a great country without those commitments.” Somehow we got along without these democrat handouts. And, Mr President, yes we were a great country without them!
4/13/11 The President today said, “Now, at certain times – particularly during periods of war or recession – our nation has had to borrow money to pay for some of our priorities. And as most families understand, a little credit card debt isn’t going to hurt if it’s temporary. But as far back as the 1980s,” Note the slam on Reagan. “…America started amassing debt at more alarming levels, and our leaders began to realize that a larger challenge was on the horizon. They knew that eventually, the Baby Boom generation would retire, which meant a much bigger portion of our citizens would be relying on programs like Medicare, Social Security, and possibly Medicaid… But after Democrats and Republicans committed to fiscal discipline during the 1990s, we lost our way in the decade that followed. We increased spending dramatically for two wars and an expensive prescription drug program – but we didn’t pay for any of this new spending.” So this man-child President STILL is blaming Bush! And he didn’t mention the trillion he wasted on pork, calling it an “economic stimulus plan.” If it was meant to help the economy it failed. He also failed to mention the trillions he is spending on the ObamaCare Nightmare! Nooooooooooo, it’s not Obama’s spending that caused the problem… even though his spending makes Bush 43 look like a miser,… no, it’s still George W. Bush’s spending that is causing the problem!! What a crock!
4/13/11 President Obama likes to lie and claim that he gave a tax cut to 95% of all Americans. It’s bull of course, but he wants you to forget about that for a minute anyway. Obama didn’t have to “pay” for his tax cuts, but he wants you to think Bush 43 not
“paying for” tax cuts is what got us in this mess! Bull S*(&*! And don’t you fall for it! Obama said, “Instead, we made the problem worse with trillions of dollars in unpaid-for tax cuts.” OMG. The audacity of his hypocrisy is beyond belief! We have demonstrated the absurdity of the union democrat lie that tax cuts must be “paid for” here. Also, we have explained how Obama did NOT really cut taxes for 95% of all Americans here. ConservativeAmerican.org asks the President to explain why he didn’t have to PAY FOR HIS OWN tax cuts if Bush was supposed to pay for his! Obama said today, “I supported the payroll tax cuts we passed in December.” Hmmm. How did you PAY for those, Mr. President? Hypocrite!
4/13/11 The President lied claiming the Bush tax cuts not being “paid for” (see above) are causing the problems: “..tax cuts that will force us to borrow an average of $500 billion every year over the next decade. To give you an idea of how much damage this caused to our national checkbook, consider this: in the last decade, if we had simply found a way to pay for the tax cuts and the prescription drug benefit, our deficit would currently be at low historical levels in the coming years.” YOU LIE! The major causes of the deficit, that result in us borrowing money, are expenses for 3 wars (including the one in Libya that Obama started which has already cost the nation more than $600-Million dollars), and Medicare-Medicaid spending. It is nonsense and untruthful to suggest that “not paying for” a tax cut, is what caused these problems. What about paying for ObamaCare? What about paying for Obama’s Economic Deficit Stimulus Plan?! You don’t have to pay for tax cuts and Obama knows it. Each time the federal government has tried cutting taxes substantially, the government wound up TAKING IN MORE MONEY than before, not less! Kennedy, Reagan and Bush 43 are the Presidents who tried this. The truth is Democrats want you to THINK that REPUBLICANS MUST PAY for tax cuts, but union democrats don’t have to pay when they cut taxes. It is such a thin and hollow argument, it blows my mind that the lamestream media just spews it out for all to consume.
4/13/11 OBAMA: “When I took office, our projected deficit was more than $1 trillion.” Hmmm. That’s interesting. Obama has now added the word “projected” to his untruthful claim that he inherited a deficit of $1-Trillion. The fact is the deficit never reached $1-trillion under George W. Bush. It only reached that under Obama. And now, it has nearly doubled already! This is NOT Bush’s fault! The Bush deficit was about $400-Billion. Obama quadrupled that to about $1.6-Trillion in just two years! Now he wants to take 12 years to get it back down? That’s put in place just so he doesn’t have to make the cuts himself. He leaves that for future generations, something his 2008 campaign promised over and over again Obama would never do!
4/13/11 Obama today: “We took a series of emergency steps that saved millions of jobs, kept credit flowing, and provided working families extra money in their pockets.” He’s still lying about having saved “millions” of jobs without any data anywhere to back that up at all. In fact, during the time when the President claims he saved “millions of jobs,” the nation lost millions of jobs. That was on his watch too, not George W. Bush’s! Obama: “these steps were expensive, and added to our deficits.”
4/13/11 After spending trillions of dollars the nation did not have, borrowing billions and billions from China, and simply printing more money, the President has suddenly decided it is in his own best interest (Obama 2012) to claim, “We have to live within our means, reduce
our deficit, and get back on a path that will allow us to pay down our debt.” Excuse us if we laugh, Mr. President. But that’s a pretty ridiculous claim coming from you! Obama has spent more in two years than all other Presidents before him combined. NOW, it’s time to cut back? Give us a break. “And we have
to… win the future.” Read: Win my own butt’s reelection in 2012!
4/13/11 “So here’s the truth,” Obama said today. That’s how he starts out a lie. Obama admitted that his own spending means that “By 2025, the amount of taxes we currently pay will only be enough to finance our health care programs, Social Security, and the interest we owe on our debt. That’s it. Every other national priority – education, transportation, even national security – will have to be paid for with borrowed money.” He then immediately contradicted the seriousness of being broke by 2025 by saying there’s really no hurry though: “ A serious plan doesn’t require us to balance our budget overnight – in fact, economists think that with the economy just starting to grow again, we will need a phased-in approach.” Sooooooo, is this an emergency or not Mr. President?!
4/13/11 President Obama nonsense today: “A 70% cut to clean energy. A 25% cut in education. A 30% cut in transportation. Cuts in college Pell Grants that will grow to more than $1,000 per year. That’s what they’re proposing. These aren’t the kind of cuts you make when you’re trying to get rid of some waste or find extra savings in the budget. These aren’t the kind of cuts that Republicans and Democrats on the Fiscal Commission proposed. These are the kind of cuts that tell us we can’t afford the America we believe in. And they paint a vision of our future that’s deeply pessimistic.” Deeply pessimistic?! He’s the guy who just told us we are broke by 2025! He said all we’ll have money for in 2025 is ObamaCare, Social Security and interest on the debt. That’s pessimistic. The America OBAMA believes in is not the same one you believe in. A 70% cut in Obama’s hugely increased green energy nonsense? Great. How about a 90% cut? A 25% cut in education? The U.S. Constitution doesn’t even allow the federal government to be in the education business. How about a 100% cut in federal education money and elimination of the US Dept. of Education? Let the states deal with education and get the feds out of the way. Uuuuugghhh! This guy drives me nuts!
4/13/11 The President promised today that if Paul Ryan gets his way on budget cuts, “our roads crumble and our bridges collapse, we can’t afford to fix them” and kids who want college? “we can’t afford to send them.” Remember when Obama said enough scare tactics? We do. It’s here. How about this one from today: “America can’t afford to keep the promise we’ve made to care for our seniors” or this one: “up to 50 million Americans have to lose their health insurance.” OMG. Sit down and be quiet, sir.
4/13/11 The President of the United States today used his fake concern over the budget to issue a veiled slam on his top challenger in 2012: Sarah Palin. In his outrageous claim that 50-million Americans will be without insurance if we wipe out ObamaCare (he must be counting about 48-million illegal aliens!), he said: “And who are those 50 million Americans? Many are someone’s grandparents who wouldn’t be able afford nursing home care without Medicaid. Many are poor children. Some are middle-class families who have children with autism or Down’s syndrome. …These are the Americans we’d be telling to fend for themselves.” The Down’s Syndrome comment is an obvious attempt to say Sarah Palin doesn’t even care about her own son if she is against the great Obamanator’s Plan!! Gag us. Obama said, “I will not tell families with children who have disabilities that they have to fend for themselves.” Oh, but that mean old witch Sarah Palin WILL! Run, Sarah. Run.
4/13/11 It should not be surprising that our nation’s first half-black all-socialist President is holding up the commies as a shining example. Still, this is what he has brought our nation to! We now strive to be as good as China! Obama: “Go to China and you’ll see businesses opening research labs and solar facilities.”
4/13/11 Obama: “Brazil is investing billions in new infrastructure and can run half their cars not on high-priced gasoline, but biofuels. And yet, we are presented with a vision that says the United States of America – the greatest nation on Earth – can’t afford any of this.” Okay, bozo! Who comes up with your Looney Tunes examples? Are you talking about the same Brazil you give away BILLIONS in U.S. Tax Dollars to so they can afford offshore drilling?!! So we cover their drilling costs so they can spend on infrastructure and you want to lie and hold them up as some vision of where we should be?! The audacity of your absurdity is out of control. We could afford more, sir, if it wasn’t for your trillions of waste on the Socialist ObamaCare Nightmare or the pork-filled Economic Stimulus plan that was a COMPLETE FAILURE! Don’t lie to us about Brazil now. Sheesh.
4/13/11 Obama: “We don’t have to choose between a future of spiraling debt and one where we forfeit investments in our people and our country. To meet our fiscal challenge, we will need to make reforms. We will all need to make sacrifices. But we do not have to
sacrifice the America we believe in. And as long as I’m President, we won’t.” As the Tea Party realizes, this President still doesn’t get it.
4/13/11 Obama: “It’s an approach that puts every kind of spending on the table, but one that protects the middle-class, our promise to seniors, and our investments in the future.” Sooooo, if you protect everything YOU like, Mr. President, then apparently “every kind of spending” is NOT on the table, eh? “We will make the tough cuts necessary to achieve these savings, including in programs I care about, but I will not sacrifice the core investments we need to grow and create jobs.” So, clearly some things are NOT on the table, right? “I don’t expect the details in any final agreement to look exactly like the approach I laid out today. I’m eager to hear other ideas from all ends of the political spectrum.” Eager? Yeah, only if those ideas are your ideas!
4/13/11 The typical liberal offered the lame old pro-regressive approach to solving everything: Cut Defense. “The second step in our approach is to find additional savings in our defense budget.”
4/13/11 Obama: “The third step in our approach is to further reduce health care spending in our budget.” …hold on,… I think I’m choking on my HMO card… What?! He still claims that the ObamaCare Nightmare will reduce health expenses. No credible source backs him up on that. The CBO says his plan costs more than the current health system. “Our approach lowers the government’s health care bills by reducing the cost of health care itself.” YOU LIE!
4/13/11 President Obama Never met a lie he didn’t like. He also is quite fond of repeating lies, even ones that have been soundly defeated. He did it again today: “Already, the reforms we passed in the health care law will reduce our deficit by $1 trillion.” No, it won’t. Not even close. It only adds to the deficit and it does so in great BIG numbers!
4/13/11 Obama brought up his infamous death panel again today as a method he will use to save money. His death panel will decide what “appropriate” treatments are and will only pay for those! Obama today: “And we will slow the growth of Medicare costs by strengthening an independent commission” (Death Panel) “of doctors, nurses, medical experts and consumers who will look at all the evidence and recommend the best ways to reduce unnecessary spending while protecting access to the services seniors need.” Listen to what he just said. The committee will reduce unnecessary spending. Unnecessary means healthcare for old people. They’re going to die anyway, so is that really a good investment? They protect seniors and give them access to “services” that
TEAM OBAMA’S DEATH PANEL THINKS “seniors need.” This is real folks. And, Obama admits it.
4/13/11 Obama also said today he’ll give his Death Panel even more power: “And if we’re wrong, and Medicare costs rise faster than we expect, this approach will give the independent commission the authority to make additional savings by further improving Medicare.” He calls cutting Medicare “Improving” it. Read it again. If costs go up, the committee will reduce them (that’s a cut in your Medicare) and thus will be “improving Medicare.” What kind of double talk is this? The Liar-in-Chief was on fire today, unable to control his outrageous campaign-style lying!
4/13/11 “But let me be absolutely clear,” Obama said. That’s another favorite way he has to start a lie! “both parties should work together now to strengthen Social Security for future generations. But we must do it without putting at risk current retirees, the most vulnerable, or people with disabilities; without slashing benefits for future generations.” Soooo, they should fix it while he sits on the sidelines and watches. Oh, and the rule is you can’t change benefits for anyone now or in the future. Apparently he is full of HOPE for no CHANGE! He also disagreed with himself moments later saying, “there are those who believe we shouldn’t make any reforms to… Social Security… But I guarantee that if we don’t make any changes at all, we won’t be able to keep our commitments.” He just said we can’t make changes, then said we must! Flip-flop anyone? Pass the syrup.
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.
