Obama The King




WOW! Talk about “Do as I say, not as I do.” The use of foodstamps by Americans this past Thanksgiving was at an all-time high. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that almost two-thirds of the increase (almost $72 billion) in spending on foodstamps between 2007 and 2011 was caused by an increase in the number of participants. And the number of Americans receiving foodstamps (15 percent of the US population) also reached a record level in June 2012, with no relief in sight. The record number of Americans on food stamps is indicative of Democrats who that want to keep lower-income Americans dependent on foodstamps, and to have a constituency dependent on government services. The use of foodstamps has increased under Obama by about 20 million Americans (and non-Americans). By the way, the foodstamps program is now named the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

But did that fact cause President (King?) Barack Hussein Obama and his family to alter their Thanksgiving dinner plans? To quote (the late) John Belushi from SNL, “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo.” In fact, the Obama family ate “high on the hog.”

The Obama family had turkey, ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, greens, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and dinner rolls. For desert, they had a choice of banana cream pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie, sweet potato pie, huckleberry pie, or cherry pie. And guess who paid for all that food! That’s right: us taxpayers. Perhaps if taxes to pay for foodstamps weren’t so high, we lowly taxpayers could afford half of what the Obamas had, or even two kinds of pie.

To paraphrase Shakespeare, whether its called foodstamps or SNAP, its the same thing, and it still costs – period. What matters is not what the program is called, but what it actually costs. But does Obama care about what he is doing/has done to the country? Judging from his recent actions, the answer is “No.” He is truly the “Hypocrite-in-Chief.”

But that’s just my opinion.
