Does Barack Obama Tell the Truth?

17 04 2012

In 2008, Barack Obama promised he would put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division and conflict and cynicism” and he would help us “rediscover our bonds to each other and get out of this constant, petty bickering that’s come to characterize our politics.”

As president, Obama and his administration declared (a) he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, (b) unemployment would not exceed 8 percent, (c) he would bend the health care cost curve down, (d) poverty would decrease, and (e) he would fix the housing crisis. In reality, Obama has submitted four budgets with trillion-dollar-plus deficits, March was the 38th consecutive month with unemployment above 8 percent, health care costs have risen, more than 46 million people are in poverty, the largest number in the 50-plus years for which poverty estimates have been published, and the housing crisis has worsened on Obama’s watch.

The Cost & Legacy of Obama’s Deficits

15 02 2012

 

. . .deficit spending during Obama’s four years in the White House (based on his own figures) will be an estimated $5.170 trillion — or $5,170,000,000,000.00.

To help put that colossal sum of money into perspective, if you take our deficit spending under Obama and divide it evenly among the roughly 300 million American citizens, that works out to just over $17,000 per person — or about $70,000 for a family of four.

Rick Perry Enter the Presidential Frey

9 08 2011

Oh, how I wish.

He would bring some stature to this race rather than the “MEH” Romney.

Let us beat Barack Obama.

Is Rick Perry perfect? Was George W Bush? No.

Change and hope we can believe in. A little Texas Tea Party may be the best we can hope for now.

God bless you Rick!





Obama ‘The Decider’

11 05 2011
MAY 11, 2011 By Matthew Continetti

Everyone seems to agree that the killing of Osama bin Laden will put to rest the notion that President Obama is indecisive. I don’t know what they’re talking about. President Obama has seemed to me to be perfectly capable of making decisions ever since he ordered the use of deadly force against Somali pirates in 2009. Obama’s problem isn’t a lack of decision-making capability. It’s that almost all of the decisions he makes are wrong.

Obama’s “leading from behind” during the Arab Awakening, for example, is less an instance of dithering than a concerted policy not to appear “imperialistic.” In the final analysis, Obama did not miss the opportunity to support the Green Revolution in Iran in the summer of 2009 because he was playing the “To be or not to be” game. He made a conscious decision to maintain relations with the illegitimate government in Tehran because he feared a replay of the 1953 Mossadegh affair. Similarly today, the Obama administration downplays the horror in Syria not because it can’t make up its mind but because it is theologically committed to the absurd idea that Bashar Assad could play a role in a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians.

Obama has made plenty of domestic-policy decisions, too. And almost all of them have been terrible. The stimulus, the auto bailout, health care, “green energy” industrial policy, devaluing the currency, unleashing the EPA—none of these initiatives has promoted the cause of economic growth. Obama’s decision to demagogue Paul Ryan‘s budget rather than rein in the deficit endangers our country’s future. His education and parenting initiatives seem reasonable, if you believe the federal government has a role in education or parenting. I’m increasingly of the opinion that it does not.

Obama’s best decisions are those that continue or build upon the policies of his predecessor: preventive detention, rendition, warrantless surveillance, drone strikes, and counterinsurgency and surge of troops in Afghanistan. Yet there’s no reason why the 2012 Republican nominee can’t acknowledge the president’s good choices—while observing that they are few and far between.

An Officer, Scholar and a President: Summit

30 07 2009

When I'm President, I'll get a beer in a taller glass!

How many Bud Lights did I have?

How many Bud Lights did I have?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We guess this qualifies as breaking news.

President Obama will drink Bud Light at the Thursday meeting with the African-American professor and white police officer who got in a dust-up earlier this month. Press secretary Robert Gibbs just made the announcement to the press pool on Air Force One.

The full menu looks set. Sgt. James Crowley, whose arrest of professor Henry Louis Gates at his home, touched off the incident, has indicated a preference for Blue Moon. Gates has said he likes Red Stripe.

“So we’ll have the gamut covered tomorrow afternoon,” Gibbs said.

Crowley charged Gates with disorderly conduct; Gates accused him of racial bias. The charges were dropped.

Obama, who first said the police acted “stupidly” but then backed off that comment, called the meeting in the hope that the incident could provide a “teachable moment” on race relations.

The planned location is a picnic table behind the Oval Office, weather permitting.
