HARVARD MATH

I know. I know. He's brilliant. The smartest man to come down the pike in almost our entire history.

He is President Barack Obama, or as I like to call him: President BO; President, out of respect for the office; BO because his policies stink.

He pleases his constituents in absolutely everything he does, even when they don't like what he does.

HIV/AIDS activists really love him. They know he is working hard to help those living with HIV/AIDS in America and abroad.

The fact that there is no new federal money in his HIV/AIDS strategy does not deter them. They are content to know that he has redirected HIV/AIDS money in the budget to spend it more efficiently.

President BO has acknowledged that these are challenging times for Americans living with HIV/AIDS because the economy is forcing states to cut back on assistance for drugs.

“I know the need is great,” he said. “And that’s why we’ve increased federal assistance each year that I’ve been in office, providing an emergency supplement this year to help people get the drugs they need, even as we pursue a national strategy that focuses on three central goals.”

Don't you just love the math? "Each year that I've been in office."

And how many is that?

OK, OK. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he was speaking of calendar years.

That would be 2009 and 2010.

Two different years on the calendar...get it?

So his statement is true, right? Because he always tells the truth. You can trust him. You can believe what he says about EVERYTHING.

Only in 2009 he only increased HIV/AIDS budget allocations just a little bit, with which the afore mentioned advocates were disappointed.

This year, President BO has increased those budget numbers not one iota.

Some of you will miss the point here and will go off on some diatribe about the government's role in supporting HIV/AIDS research and all.

The point is the reckless way in which President BO plays with truth and numbers, either out of ignorance or on purpose.

Since we know he is the smartest president since Buchannan, we know it's not ignorance.

The only things left are: he is deliberately lying or he has convinced himself that same=more.

He actually has fallen prey to that liberal mind-set that believes something is true because you wish it to be true or that it is true because you said it, regardless of whether it is actually true.

Quite aside from the arrogance of his statement, it is clear that at Harvard Law School they teach some pretty fuzzy math.

Harvard stopped being a university when they admitted, and then graduated students according to affirmative action standards. Harvard stopped being an American university when they began accepting money from Moslem terrorist families who realize it is possible to sidestep anything in America if you throw enough money at it.

I think the question should address the question of why the federal government is in the HIV business to begin with. This is but one of many extra-constitutional expenditures, and Americans, most of who do not even know we have a Constitution, refuse to rise up in righteous indignation because they think the billions spent on HIV research is the right thing to do.

Right and wrong isn’t the issue: it is a question of legality; a question not easily dismissed if we truly are a nation of laws because the Constitution is our founding law. It is important. And we should remember that individuals who require HIV treatment are citizens of states. Citizens receive treatment in their states; states should be the source of funding this treatment.

Joe said...

Mustang: I completely agree with you about whether the federal government should be in the HIV/AIDS business...they should not.

Having said that, what this post was intended to illustrate is whether President BO can be trusted on any subject whatsoever.

Answer: He cannot be. He just lies about EVERYTHING he says anything about.

Then he calls his lie the truth because he said it.

President BO clearly thinks he is all powerful and in charge of everything. He is arrogant, deceitful, a big bully, ineffective as a leader and has many more negative qualities that endear him to the liberal thinker.

The vast bouquet of balloons that represent the president are slowly popping or losing air. Some will still cling to the empty rubber shell in the end.

Joe said...

ablur: Good illustration. He is certainly full of hot air.

Susannah said...

When he opens his mouth, he's either speaking a falsehood, or saying a lot of words that don't have any substantive meaning...

*sheesh*

Joe said...

susannah: So...how can we get him to keep his mouth shut? Never mind. If he does that, people won't be able to catch on to him.

The EPA loves Obama because of the fines he has to pay for all the trash he vomits. Toxic waste spewed into the air. Good thing they are looking after us.

“As I recall, from 1984 onward — and bear in mind that the AIDS virus was not identified until 1982 — every Reagan budget contained a large sum of money specifically earmarked for AIDS,” says Peter Robinson, a former Reagan speechwriter and author of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life. “Now, people will argue that it wasn't enough,” Robinson adds. “But, of course, that's the kind of argument that takes place over every item in the federal budget."


Yes, we understand, Mr. Robinson, because Mr. J. Politico is making the same argument against Mr. Obama.


"Nevertheless, the notion that he was somehow callous or had a cruel or cynical attitude towards homosexuals or AIDS victims is just ridiculous.

In February 1986, President Reagan's blueprint for the next fiscal year stated: “[T]his budget provides funds for maintaining — and in some cases expanding — high priority programs in crucial areas of national interest…including drug enforcement, AIDS research, the space program, nonmilitary research and national security.” Reagan's budget message added that AIDS “remains the highest public health priority of the Department of Health and Human Services.”
Precise budget requests are difficult to calculate, as online records from the 1980s are spotty. Nevertheless, New York University's archived, hard copies of budget documents from fiscal year 1984 through FY 1989 show that Reagan proposed at least $2.79 billion for AIDS research, education, and treatment. In a Congressional Research Service study titled AIDS Funding for Federal Government Programs: FY1981-FY1999, author Judith Johnson found that overall, the federal government spent $5.727 billion on AIDS under Ronald Reagan. This higher number reflects President Reagan's proposals as well as additional expenditures approved by Congress that he later signed."

SOURCE

Mr. Obama's budget for AIDS is $19 billion annually,[almost 4 times more than Mr. Reagan's] and J. Politico is complaining that he isn't SPENDING MORE! Mr Obama says he will use the funds already allocated in a more efficient way to target the areas where the funds are needed most. A very conservative move, and Mr. Politico trashes Mr Obama, implying he's dumb at math for doing so.

"Perhaps most noteworthy, in these tough budgetary times, is that the plan does not propose a major increase in federal funding. The United States already spends $19 billion annually on domestic HIV/AIDS programs, and President Obama’s plan seeks to redirect dollars toward the most at-risk and affected groups – gay and bisexual men and African-Americans.

“The National HIV/AIDS Strategy is committed to making the United States a place where new HIV infections are rare, and when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socio-economic circumstance, will have unfettered access to high-quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination,” the White House stated Monday.

J. POLITICO WROTE: "He just lies about EVERYTHING he says anything about.

Your statement is nonsense of course, and I'll show you why.
According to your hyperbolic statement Mr. Obama lied when he made these statements in his Inaugural Address:

(Joe, you didn't qualify your statement, therefore, you really do believe EVERYTHING Mr. Obama stated in his inaugural speech is a lie.)


PRESIDENT OBAMA: "Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath."

[This, according to JOE POLITICO is a lie. [

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace."

[JOE POLITICO apparently believes this is a lie, even though Presidents Eisenhower and Clinton took office during a time of relative prosperity and peace.]

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "Yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms."

[JOE POLITICO thinks this is a lie as well, even though Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Roosevelt took office amidst gathering clouds and raging storms."

Joe says Mr. Obama lied about that piece of history.]

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we, the people, have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding documents."

[JOE POLITICO considers everthing stated above a lie. He apparently believes Mr. Obama is lying when he acknowledges that Americans remain faithful to the ideals of our forebears."

And here's another instance where JOE POLITICO believes Mr. Obama lied]:

"In the year of America's birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At the moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words to be read to the people:

"Let it be told to the future world...that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive... that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet it."


Joe, when you make irrational statements like "..he lies about EVERYTHING he says anything about." nothing that comes after has any credibility.

Because of the number of idiots graduating from public schools, it may be possible though.

I want to see debates with Sarah Palin & Barack Obama.
I think she will make crap out of him in no time at all.

But then again... who wouldn't?

Harvard stopped being a admired university when they admitted obama

Joe said...

SK: "Mr. J. Politico is making the same argument against Mr. Obama."

No. I didn't.

I said you would miss the point and take off on some diatribe, and you did just as I predicted.

The point was (just to help you out): He said he did something that he did not do.

He's not the first to do that, just the best at it we've ever had.

Joe said...

SK: "J. Politico is complaining that he isn't SPENDING MORE!"

No. I'm not.

You are lying about what I am complaining about.

I am complaining that President BO said he DID something HE DID NOT DO!

He's not the first, but he is the best at it we've ever had.

Joe said...

SK "Joe, when you make irrational statements like..."

Well, his inner being was lying in every illustration you gave.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Because JOE POLITICO KNOWS President Barack Obama's "inner being!"

How funny is that?

Talk about elitism and phony psychobabble.

JOE POLiTICO says he has a personal knowledge of President Obama's "inner being."

Hey, Joe, I know your "inner being" and it is seething with hatred for our American president, so everything you post about Obama is tinged with hysterical hatred and psycological babble. How's that for knowing someone's "inner being?"

Sorry, Joe. You asked for that.

But I forgive you.

Joe said...

SK: Since "psychobabble," by definition, is phoney, "phoney psychobabble" would be real psychology...would it not?

My inner being never seethes. That takes too much energy.

Leticia said...

Harvard has lost a lot of its integrity since it began to embrace progressives and their doctrine. I am not impressed anymore.

As for Obama and his administration, all they do is interfere in affairs that do not come under the obligations of their official positions. They should be worrying about a losing war in Afghanistan for one thing, focusing on cutting back our taxes, the oil spill, reading and following the constitution. I could go on forever, here.

Obama is nothing but a liar, but what do we expect from a socialist?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Leticia,

When anyone here or anywhere makes a blanket statement that says EVERYTHING Mr. Obama says is a lie, they invalidate any legitimate criticism they have for the president, because that statement in and of itself is hyperbole and wrong.

So we don't believe your or Joe's silly talk.

But you certainly are entitled to hold your OPINION, wrong and ludirous as it is.

PS George Bush got his graduate degree from Harvard as did Mr. Obama, as did five others, including Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt.

Anonymous said...

Okay, maybe we should clarify and say he lies about everything that's of importance. He's probably not lying when he says what had for breakfast, or what his golf score was.

Joe said...

leticia: Hadn't you heard? He is not a socialist. He just wants the government to own/control every aspect of our lives. (No, wait...oh, yeah...that is the very definition of socialism. Never mind, then.)

SK: "a blanket statement that says EVERYTHING Mr. Obama says is a lie, they invalidate any legitimate criticism..."

That is an untrue statement.

Hyperbole is a long honored literary device. They probably did not teach you that in government school. If they did, then you know about it and choosing to IGNORE it.

Does that make you IGNOREant?

Anonymous: I'll betcha he IS lying when he tells you what his golf score was.

Shaw Kenawe said...

hyperbole "...exaggeration for the sake of emphasis in a figure of speech not meant literally. An everyday example is the complaint ‘I've been waiting here for ages.’ Hyperbolic expressions are common in the inflated style of dramatic speech."

Yes, I know you used hyperbole as a figure of speech. And I also know that what you wrote is not to be taken seriously [is anything you write not to be taken seriously? Especially where you employ hyperbole with regard to our American president?]

That would mean you're writing overinflated poppycock when you refer to our American president, therefore, why should anyone bother reading your overinflated figure of speech?

It is a waste of time, because what you write is not factual, but it is your very strong, unsupported, overinflated, hyperbolic speech, which informs no one, but it makes you feel good.

Hey. Whaever rows your boat, Joe.

Go for it.

But it is funny how you had to walk back your initial claim that EVERYTHING he says about anything is a lie.

Because you know that's a lie.

I give you props for explaining that you were just being a bombastic exaggerater who cannot make a cogent, reasoned criticism without slandering our American president.

So let's get this straight. Somehow you have an insight into Mr. Obama's "inner being," just like the Almighty has [at least that what a lot of religions teach--God knows who you really are--can't fool Him, and now, apparently, according to Joe, he sees into Mr. Obama's soul, just like God does.

And now you're admitting you used a "figure of speech" to explain why you hate our American president, because actual facts will not validate your claim that EVERYthing he says about anything is a lie.

Checkmate.

Oh, and suggesting that he probably cheats at golf without any shred of knowledge or fact fits in nicely with your delusions.

Joe said...

SK: Oh, come on! Everybody, I mean absolutely EVERYBODY, cheats at golf...even you!

Your conclusions from and ridicule of my use of hyperbole has become hyperbolic!

You have decided that, since I use hyperbole at times, nothing I write is factual or believable, when in fact, EVERYTHING I write is both factual and believable, even the hyperbole.

Double checkmate.

Hey! That's it! I win!
EOD!

lisa said...

Obama has told the truth about everything. The unemployment,lower health care costs,no government funded abortion,no rationed health care,you ca keep your own doctors,not one penny of a tax increase for families making under 250,000 a year.
I'll give him credit he lies and liberals swear to it. That's some pretty good manipulation on his part/.

Joe said...

lisa: Liberals believe something is true if, and only if, they say it is true, quite apart from whether or not is is ACTUALLY true.

Shaw Kenawe said...

It is true that Joe uses hyperbole.

Double checkmate.

You are exactly right Susannah, People like Miss Shaw Kenawe say DUMB things all the time to defend Obama. But they are SO fast to Blame Bush even 18 months after he's no longer in office.
But why should I be surprised, she is still Blaming Reagan.
They'll jump all over any and every Conservative for ANYTHING he or she does and when Barack does the same thing, they defend his ass to the hilt!

No wonder he hasn't been able to bring people together. He's lied to us constantly. The only thing transparent about him and his administration is their pathological lies!
And treats these terrorist murderers as though they just robbed a convenience store. And then you hear/read these "Progressives" and they say Sarah Palin a "quitter" and is not qualified. This is the same arrogant putz that gave himself a B+ for his first year? Well it looks like that B+ has "changed" along with his "hope"

Joe said...

tha malcontent: It is truely mind-boggling tht they (liberals) still have the guts to blame Bush for our ills.

Did you see Barney Frank (the very one who told us to leave Fannie and Freddie alone 'cause they were OK)brag about how they had "instituted" regulations on Fannie and Freddie 'cause they were so unregulated?

Guts! Filled up guts!

Self Sufficient said...

Right you are Joe. It has been (1 year, and 7 months, since Barack Obama took office. We still hear how everything is "Bush's fault" and how Obama is "cleaning up" the mess left by Bush. If you want to argue that, fine. But those of you that are still blaming Bush, to you have the courage and the convictions to likewise blame Clinton for the events that took place after GW Bush's inauguration? I will give GW Bush about 2% of the blame.. About 80 percent of the Freddie, Fannie, fiasco blame goes to Barney Frank, Chris Dodd & The Community Organizer gets about 20% of that.
Afghan -
As for Katrina... 100% of the blame for that one goes to Blanco and Naygin for not allowing FEMA to step in sooner. IMHO.
But for S.K.’s alluding back to Bush to lay the blame is pure nuts or should I say she is a Obama apologist caught with her pants down. If indeed she bothers to wear any.
And another thing Joe, you know and all of us know that blaming others is the lowest and the final state of ones ability to deal with a problem, just because they simply cannot or not able to handle issues. Therefore I couldn't care less what or who they blame. They are just too stupid to even answer, let alone argue with.
It is far easier to point fingers at an outgoing President who had to deal with several traumatic events which impacted the nation than to stop and review the trail of facts. Then to put the real blame where it belongs. Obama asked for this job and now that he has it, he is going to have to man up to it and deal with it.
Common sense rules here, or it ought to. The real question is, do people like S.K. have any common sense? Why must we remind her of this failure we have sitting in the white house? Or should I have said, on vacation!
Obama is the accidental president who obtained power largely because of a fluke crisis and an incompetent opponent. The young who voted for him didn’t care about competence or even understand what it means, and the very intelligent who did support him..
Isn’t it interesting that so many liberal pundits are already writing Obama’s presidency off even though he’s got another 2 1/2 years to go in this term and presumably is going to run for another one. They seem to be accepting that he’s a failure and all that’s left now is for them to scratch their heads mournfully and cry. But apoligists like S.K. will continue to blame Bush and let this failure in the white house off the hook.
It’s the failure of Barack Obama’s miserable presidency, which has polluted the American Dream much the same way BP oil has polluted the Gulf of Mexico. I believe George W Bush would have been able to lead us out of this mess…Obama can and will not.

His agenda is Marxism and big central government control. He is using this economy as a way to destroy capitalism and free markets.
We the people with a good leader can and will rise to the occasion and fix the problem.
First we must get Obama and everyone associated with him out and away from power. I believe George W Bush would have been able to lead us out of this mess…Obama can and will not. The next and final step is we need to take the power away from the elites so they can never do this to us again…

Joe said...

Self Sufficient: SK has the nerve to use a phrase like: "...Especially where you employ hyperbole with regard to our American president."

Yet, by some fluke of reason, when Bush was in office, she, herself, had no trouble employing "...hyperbole with regard to our Americn president."

It is absolutely impossible for her to understand the contradiction in that.

She does not have it in her.

mrs. m. said...

Amen Self Sufficient! Oh how I love the debates that go on here Joe!

Self Sufficient said...

Actually SK, you are fairly ignorant and typical of an uneducated American liberal.

SK, don't mention the freedoms that are now being eroded faster than ever. Our spiraling national debt. We're pussies now to the rest of the world. All of Barrys friends being taken care of before anyone else. Czars, nationalized healthcare, taxes skyrocketing. Yah, you're certainly right..

The rest of your argument is total f'n tripe

I think the only reason God gave Obama a head was to keep his ears from fighting, because he certainly do not perform any thought processes in the year and a half that he is the president..
You liberals talk about Obama cleaning up Bush's mess.. OBAMA is making a bigger mess, he is not cleaning up anything, our national debt has soared beyond comprehension our national spending has soared beyond comprehension, our tax rates have increased, our independent companies are being bought by the government, our states can not even enforce NATIONAL immigration laws because Obama says so
the new health plan is a new tax
our troops that Obama said were coming home, came home for a month and more than 60,000 others joined them overseas. Obama bows to foreign government and makes apologies for America without doing anything to make America great again

Hyperbole actually means exaggerated,

Perhaps Ms. Shaw Kenawe, aka SK meant to say HyperHole, when referring to Barack Obama. She just got her terminology mixed up.

Note to all you Liberal idiots, enjoy your next year and a half. Because we will be fooled and bamboozled by this smooth spoken liar again in 2012. If you wanted a Marxist in office to support. The let the dumb ass liberals vote for him again. But this time Americans won’t be brain-washed.
I am so sick of hearing about his “ hope and change” bullshit. He and his miserable bunch can kiss my American Cracker ass!

Thank you for posting this Joe.. I appreciate that.
