Fool Me Once Shame On You, Fool Me 437,253 Times… Well…
It’s not really 437,253 times, but it seems close. The president has “fudged,” “fibbed,” or ”misspoke,” I mean, “lied” so many times that we have lost count. Really! We live in such a politically correct world that we can’t even call a lie a lie anymore because we don’t want to presume what someone was thinking when they said what they said.
Like President Clinton saying, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” At what point was oral sex no longer “sex relations”? Or the other famous one, “I am not a crook.” President Nixon emphatically stating that he had nothing to do with planning and approving the Watergate break in.
We have decided there are no lies, just what we want words to mean when we say them. But if they don’t mean what you think they mean, that doesn’t mean it’s a lie. It just means that you didn’t understand or they misspoke. Confused? Good! It means you won’t fall for their lies.
I long for a president that would just come out and say things like, “I tried this and it didn’t work. We are going back to the drawing board and will inform you of our progress” or “the numbers originally indicated we would have “X” amount of people back to work, but sadly that failed. We are going to review and rework the plan and will keep you informed of the next step.” Or how about, ”I know war is ugly. I know putting our young people in harm’s way is not an easy task. As president, I plan to make sure they have all they need to succeed and save the good people of the Republic of I-Screwed-Up-astan.” A little truth would go a long way.
Unfortunately, President Obama couldn’t find the truth if you put it in a paper bag marked it “truth,” added a “selfie” of him and the pretty, prime minister from Australia, then put both his hands on it.
Let’s look at facts…
“Income equality is the worst it’s ever been.” (Hit the “wrong answer” buzzer now!) The numbers show that income equality was much worse in 2000 and 2007. If you look at how government is playing with taxes, tax rates, and Obamacare the inequality rate is close to what it was in 1987. This is along the “if you like your doctor you can keep…” Well, you get it.
In a recent interview Obama said there are now 9 million Americans signed up for healthcare under the affordable healthcare act. (Hit the “wrong answer” buzzer again please.) In actuality over 6 million people have lost their healthcare under this disaster and have had to go to the ever flawless Healthcare.gov site for insurance. Here are a few little-known facts that the mainstream media refuses to tell you. Many of those 6 million have had to sign up under Obamacare only to receive less services, less hospital options, and substandard healthcare. And President Obama considers this a success! Some have signed up only to be moved to Medicare. Really?! Was that in the plan? Many others already had insurance, such as Medicare, and were told they needed to sign up using Healthcare.gov. These numbers are the ones the government is using to wave the victory flag. Seriously folks! It’s government math at its finest.
Raising minimum wage will help families. This is like taking advice on the stock market from a butcher filing for bankruptcy. Obama has never owned or run a business. He has never signed a paycheck for an employee. Less than 35% of his cabinet and the people in his administration have ever run a business and the ones that have, he dismisses their advice. Bill Gates came out last week and said policy would be a disaster and would, most definitely, cause job losses, as have many other economists. The commander-in-chief is basically saying, “What do they know? I’m right. Full speed ahead.” And to prove it, he immediately raised the minimum wage on all federal contract employees to $10.10 an hour! (Applause signs please.) Oh, wait. It’s such a good thing that it doesn’t start until 2015 and it only affects new contractors not current ones. Apparently “immediately” doesn’t mean “right now.”
There are so many more Obama “lies” I could share with you. Benghazi was the result of a rogue movie maker’s clip about Muhammed. If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. It won’t add one dime to the deficit. Green energy creates thousands and thousands of new jobs. Shall I go on?
I can’t help myself. Let’s hit one more.
Obama has created 8 million new jobs in the last 4 years, the problem is, he has been in office over 5 years. That’s government math, again, as seen through the eyes of a community organizer who never ran his own business.
According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, this jobs recovery has been the weakest since WWII. There has only been a gain of 2.4 million jobs since he has been in charge, if you include population growth, as has been done in years gone by but has mysteriously stopped under this president. We are looking at the lowest participation rate since 1978 when the peanut gallery (President Carter) ran the country.
Stop the lies! Vote them out!
Wake up America! You’re gonna lose this country!
