TL of BO - You Figure It Out

Once a person lies to me, I require him or her to provide me with a list of things on which he cannot be trusted as well as a list of those on which he can be.

President BO (the amateur president) has lied repeatedly, and refuses to provide me with any list at all, so I don’t know what to trust him on.

January, 2009: “The way to make government accountable is to make it transparent…”


January 2009: “… the rule of law will be the touch tones of this presidency.”


April 2011 (Defending DOJ’s lack of action): “In just over two years…prosecutors have filed criminal charges in five separate cases…”


“Every single American has the right to affordable accessible healthcare.” “These negotiations will be on C-Span.”


“If you have insurance that you like…then you will be able to keep that insurance”


“…I wouldn’t sign a bill that didn’t meet that criteria” (wasn’t without tricks)

Lie (The bill he signed will use 10 years of revenue in 7 years of spending. That’s not some kind of a trick?)

“It’s a plan that asks everyone to take responsibility for meeting this challenge.”

Lie (there are increasing numbers of exemptions. How is that everyone?)

“Nobody is talking about some government takeover of health care”


“It should never be purchased with tax increases on middle class families”


“… is absolutely not a tax increase…”

Lie (The administration took it to the Supreme Court in order to get it proclaimed a tax instead of a penalty, which SCOTUS did.)

“George, the fact that you’ve looked up Merriams dictionary (????) …indicates that you’re stretching a little bit now.”

Lie (Turns out it IS a tax increase. In fact, Obamacare has over 20 tax increases.)

“…under my plan, no family making less than $200,000 a year will see any form of tax increase…”


“…paying their fair share…”

Lie (GM paid none at all after a huge government bailout. GE paid none in 2010.)

“All of them have projects that are shovel ready…”


“…starting to turn the economy around…”

Lie (GDP – 2010: 3.0 percent. GDP 2012: 1.9 percent---that’s growth? In what universe?)

“I’m pledging to cut the deficit by half by the end of my first term in office”

Lie (it was $15 T when he took office. It is over $16 T now)

September 9, 2009: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits — either now or in the future.”


July 13, 2012: “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that…”


Of course, that's just me speaking.

Let' let PBO (tap) speak for himself.

Lets look at Obama's Accomplishments
He Gave us Health Careor should I say that he forced Obamacare on us!
He gave us the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with new pact reducing number of long-range weapons with Russia, or should I say he gave away the farm!
He ended our Space program. Or should I say that he let everyone including China advance their space programs while ending ours and put us in 3rd class status while putting 1,000's of people out of work at the same time.
He spent more money and took more Vacations than any other US president in history.
His wife live the life of a Queen
Yes he had many, many accomplishments.

JSS - I can't quite make out if you are confusing "SART" with "START (STrategic Arms Reduction Treaty) or "SALT" (Strategic Arms Limitation Talks), both of which were initiatives begun by Republican presidents between the United States and the United Soviet Socialist Republic (U.S.S.R.) some 30 plus years ago.

Perhaps you can be more specific about how either one was an Obama initiative?

Anon: I don't care which political side you're on, foul language is not allowed here. Be man enough to control your language or stay out.

Joe, you are shameless.
