PRESIDENT BO (the child president) THE "HONEST" POLITICIAN

From my comments on my previous post:

Joe - "He has lied about himself, his past, his heritage, his career, his friends, his origins, his intentions and everything else he has ever said."

Not a single word of what you said is true.

Be specific.

What did he lie about?

Let me count some of the ways:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Guantanamo will be closed by no later than one year from now.

True or false?

Is it closed or not?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Tell the lobbyists in Washington that their day of setting the agenda are over. They have not funded my campaign. They will not work in my White House.

True or false?

Does he have more lobyists in Washington today, or fewer? Are there more or fewer lobyists and former lobyists in his administration? Did he, or did he not appoint 17 be lobbyists to high positions in his administration in the first 14 days?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think we can get a lot of work done fast. When I met with the governors, all of them have projects that are shovel ready.

True or false?

Are there any more "shovel ready" jobs than there were when he took office?

What did he mean when he said, "Shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected."?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So, let me be absolutely clear. If you are a family making less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes go up.

Well now we know that ObamaTax, which was first a tax, then a penalty and now (according to SCOTUS) a tax again, will be the largest tax increase in the history of the United States.

A biography written about him called him a Kenyan and the First Lady called Kenya his home country, yet he says he was born in Hawaii and never refuted the Kenyan assertion.

(If you wrote MY biography and said I was born in Lexington, I would correct you quickly. And I would NOT show you a photo-shopped birth certificate to "prove" it. I don't have to. I have the original, which says I was born in Miami, Florida.)

He has called Jeremiah Wright his pastor and mentor of 20 years and then denied that he had ever heard his anti-American, black liberationist preaching.

He started his campaign in Bill Ayers' house and then said he and Bill were "...not that close."

He denied being a socialist and then behaved like one.

He said Solyndra would be a "good investment," and then said nothing about its investment value when it colapsed in bankruptcy.

He said we would see bill on C-Span before they were signed into law, but after three and one-half years in the presidency, no bill has ever been pre-viewable on C-Span.

He said if people liked their doctor they could keep him (or her), but the bill itself contradicts that.

He called the ObamaCare bill (Now the ObamaTax bill) a health care bill, but failed to mention the dozen or so parts of it that are unrelated to health cars, such as what happens when you sell your house.

He expressed "utmost confidence in Eric Holder," who has now been held in contempt of Congress for refusing to submit documents relative to "Fast and Furious."

In his 2012 State of the Union Address, President Obama said that American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years.


True or false? Did or did not oil Production on Federal Lands Dropped 275,000 Barrels a Day in 2011?


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I’ve done more for Israel’s security than any President ever.
 
Oh? Has he or has he not aided Islamic Extremists' take-over of Egypt? Have weapons from the USA, or have weapons from the USA not poured into Gaza?
 
President BO (the child president) said that the GOP was responsible for "his" jobs bill not passing.
 
Did he, or did he not have enough Democrat votes to pass the bill?
 
Do you remember President BO (the child president) saying, "I cannot guarantee that those checks (Social Security checks, that is) go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it?"
 
(Putting aside the "truth" that he has nothing to do with guaranteeing when checks go out), did the checks go out or not?  Have they EVER not gone out? Would it not be illegal for them NOT to go out?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The fence between US and Mexico is “Practically Complete”

True or false?

The Department of Homeland Security says its aaround 5% complete. Who's lying and who's telling the truth?

PRESIDENT OBAMA (referencing the national debt): These are obligations that the United States has taken on in the past. Congress has run up the credit card, and we now have an obligation to pay our bills.


Cheese! My fingers are getting tired!

Now tell me again how honest this president is.

The word "honesty" has been completely obliterated in Obama's mind. He's a master liar, plain and simple.

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - PRESIDENT OBAMA: Guantanamo will be closed by no later than one year from now.

True or false?

Is it closed or not?

No, it's not. Because despite Obama's efforts to fulfill his promise, xenophobic, paranoid, scaredy-cat, normally 'law and order' Republicans were terrified that our legal system wasn't up to the task of prosecuting criminals. They cut off the purse strings and denied the President the funds to fulfill his promise.

In no way does that make him a liar.

It makes Republicans petty obstrucionists who care more about blocking and defeating the President than they care about American values and Justice.

I can write a biography about you or anyone else I want and I don't have to fact check it with you. I can say whatever I want. Obama is not responsible or accountable for every word written about him.

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - "He started his campaign in Bill Ayers' house and then said he and Bill were "...not that close."

That's the biggest right wing ed herring of all!

Campaign supporters routinely donate their homes and businesses for campaign functions. It's what campaign supporters do.

That doesn't mean that the person campaigning is absolutely 100% in agreement with every single thing the campaign supporter has said and done in their entire life.

That's just a stupid assumption made by stupid people.

We had a local Kansas City School Board candidate who kicked off his campaign at a soul food restaurant in the historic 18th & Vine Jazz District. Because the restaurant owner supported his campaign and wanted to help.

That in NO WAY implies that the candidate actually listens to jazz, likes soul food, is a close personal friend of the restaurant owner or had any say in what does or does not appear on the lunch menu or had any influence on whether they did or did not get a liquor license!

You people are ridiculous! Grasp at straws much?

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - "He denied being a socialist and then behaved like one."

No! He did NOT behave like a socialist.

He behaved like a middle-of-the-road centrist who was too willing to make up front concessions to deeply entrenched right wing partisan hacks who had no intention of engaging in good faith bargaining and had every intention of blocking and stonewalling him on absolutely every little thing they possibly could.

If he had really behave like a socialist, he would have forced through the single payer health care system that every other civilized nation on the planet has instead of this mish-mash of laws/taxes/penalties/incentives that just make Big Insurence companies bigger and richer.

The Affordable HealthCare Act is a HUGE BOON to free market capitalists who own big chunks of the insurance industry.

Ya know, like Bain Capital.

Joe said...

XO: "In no way does that make him a liar."

Well, it makes you one. The truth is he never tried to close it. He just tried to make you believe he did.

He succeded at that point, didn't he?

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - On what planet do you live where actual facts don't exist?

"Obama Issues Directive to Shut Down Guantánamo

President Obama was joined by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and 16 retired generals and admirals in the Oval Office as he signed the executive orders.

By MARK MAZZETTI and WILLIAM GLABERSON

Published: January 21, 2009"

What day was January 21, 2009? Oh yeah, it was his FIRST DAY IN OFFICE. Just like he promised.

Ducky's here said...

Joe, let's revisit the Bill Ayers point.

You got your clock cleaned.

Would you please give us some idea what you consider a socialist. I assume it means any support for the social welfare state.
My guess is you don't recognize state capitalism.

Ducky's here said...

Joe, I figured you for a birther. You didn't disappoint.

Craig said...

appoint 17 be lobbyists to high positions in his administration in the first 14 days?

Name names, Joe. Who are they. As best as I can tell, your source is Glenn Beck. You quoted him directly, without attribution. My, my.

I think we can get a lot of work done fast. When I met with the governors, all of them have projects that are shovel ready.

He didn't lie. He was told by govs. and mayors, from both parties, that they had "shovel ready" projects. It doesn't mean digging can start the next day. For example, you don't put out bids for a project unless you have the funding for it. The process takes time. A year after the stimulus passed, there were 30,000 road, bridge and sewer projects under way.

will be the largest tax increase in the history of the United States.

Nonsense. According to the CBO and backed up by Mass. experience with the same mandate, 1% of the population will not get insurance and pay the penalty. The flat amount penalty is $95 the first year.

He said we would see bill on C-Span before they were signed into law, but after three and one-half years in the presidency, no bill has ever been pre-viewable on C-Span.

He didn't say that. He said he wanted to see committee debates on C-Span. He has no control over what the House will allow televised. He said he wanted bills that have passed congress posted on the internet at least 4 days before he signed them. He hasn't kept that pledge.

oil Production on Federal Lands Dropped 275,000 Barrels a Day in 2011?

The Obama admin. has granted 7,000 drilling permits and leased 25M acres of public land (on and offshore) which aren't being developed. The oil cos. decide where they're going to put their resources into drilling. Whether it comes from federal land or state and private, the fact is, American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years.

Happy Independence Day, Joe.

Immigrants are continuing to boycot Arizona by the thousands, showing their outrage with Arizona 's controversial new SB-1070 law by moving elsewhere.

In the small town of Guadalupe , AZ, south of Phoenix , Manuel Renaldo is one of those who is punishing Arizona by leaving. As he loaded his stolen car with his stolen belongings and family of ten, Renaldo told this reporter through an interpreter "It's a matter of principle; I refuse to be supported by a state that treats me like a criminal!"

The effects of the exodus are being felt by Arizona retailers, who are reporting dwindling sales of beer, spray paint, and ammunition. Also hit hard are the state hospitals, which have reported a dramatic decline in births and emergency room visits. Tattoo parlors are in a state of panic.

Renaldo told a reporter through an interpreter that he and his family are moving to Illinois, a democratic state with high taxes where hard working people will support him and his family with dignity!

Kind of brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?

Joe said...

xo: ""Obama Issues Directive to Shut Down Guantánamo."

See! He got you to believing it, too.

So did I miss something? Has he shut Gitmo down?

I missed the memo.

Joe said...

Craig: "Name names, Joe. Who are they.

Name your own names. I'm just writing what I want to write. You don't have to read it. And you don't have to depend on me for your "knowledge."

As best as I can tell, your source is Glenn Beck. You quoted him directly, without attribution."

The only person I quoted was Preaident Bo (the child president). Not one word of my post is in the words of Glenn Beck, whom I don't listen to.

The president said "Guantanamo will be closed by no later than one year from now."

I did not say that. Glenn Beck did not say that. The president said that.

What I did was to ask: "True or false? Is it closed or not?"

How is that a quote of Glenn Beck? I wrote those words from my own expansive mind.

"Tell the lobbyists in Washington that their day of setting the agenda are over. They have not funded my campaign. They will not work in my White House."

That was in the president's speech, not mine or Glenn Beck's.

Just because two people quote the same lines somebody else says does not mean they stole anything from anyone.

"He didn't lie. He was told by govs. and mayors, from both parties, that they had "shovel ready" projects."

So if somebody else tells you something and you believe them because they are supposed to know what they are doing that's not a lie?

Funny. You told us Bush lied when he was told there were WMD's.

Can you say "double standard?"

Ducky's here said...

-------

In other words, it pales compared to Saint Ronnie Raygun's increase in the Social Security tax.

Wrong again, Joe. It's becoming a habit.

Joe said...

Ducky: Fine, if you're only going to suffer the penalty/tax for one year. Do you have any idea what it climbs to in subsequent years?

Oooops!

Craig said...

Funny. You told us Bush lied when he was told there were WMD's.

Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

Downing Street Memo

Joe, B.H.O. did try to close Gitmo. There was a big pissin' match about where to send them and where to try them. He failed but he didn't lie.

Ugh. 101 F and humid today. Skipping BBQ. Going to the movies.

I'm glad BO has failed at so many things so we can soon say goodbye.

Xavier Onassis said...

nomorebo - "...say goodbye." You goin' somewhere? Moving to Canada? Because Obama will win reelection by a landslide.

Lone Ranger said...

Obama has been lying all his life. His book, "Dreams of my Father" contain more than three dozen of them.

But, as we know, Obama supporters, like Stalin supporters, like Hitler supporters, like Mao supporters, like Castro supporters won't condemn him for anything. During the seven years in which our troops were in Afghanistan under President Bush, we lost 569 military personnel. In half that time under Obama, we’ve lost more than twice as many troops as we lost under Bush. But, there are no world-wide peace marches. No protests. We know that Obama keeps a "kill list" and authorizes the assassinations of suspected foreign combatants. No calls for Obama to be arrested as a war criminal. Obama supporters are just as morally and ethically corrupt as their demi-god.
