Dear Mr. President:
It didn’t seem possible, but even after my lowest expectations of you, from the very beginning five years ago when I thought that you were the bottom-of-the-barrel, I figured you could never again disappoint more than that....But you did it. You really, surely did.
As you know and as required by the Constitution, a sitting president is required to
inform Congress of the state of our union once per year during his
term(s). Today, we'll be fact checking that speech.
The Lair-in-Chief who was elected and re-elected on Affirmative Action and white liberal guilt. Made one of his most UN-memorable, and worse speeches last nignt. I thought the speech was very sad because number one, no one is interested in Global Warming any longer, and no one cares about your immigration reform either. We have much to mush to worry about with the economy and with terrorism these days!
Over and over all I heard for the past 5 years was Obama saying that he will not rest until...... on and on. I went back and looked at last years speech and 3 years back. It is the same speech just with different "I will's and I shall". He is still working around the edges to the economy and he still thinks that the rich got rich by robbing the poor. Same as all the years back.
Am I wrong or was Obama was initially elected to bridge the divide between liberals and conservatives.
Well he certainly dropped the ball on that.
To me that is his biggest failure from day one.
He passed Obamacare with not one vote from conservatives. What does that tell you about his “Hope and Change”? It tells me that nobody wants him or his Hope and Change.
First, the unemployment rate has not gone down for lack of unemployment,
but for retiring baby boomers and disoriented job seekers simply
leaving the labor force. As recently as December of last year, 917,000
Americans left the workforce.
Second, America does indeed possess more oil reserves than the Middle
East and the world combined, but what he fails to mention is that it
sits under federally owned land. Attempts to take advantage of that
supply via the Keystone XL pipeline have been rebuffed by the his
Administration. It is true we produce more oil than we buy, but gas
prices have not translated, which cost an average of $3.26 a gallon.
Thirdly and most importantly, Obama claims our deficits have been cut in
half. In fact, that is a rather bold lie. In his 5 years so far, he ran
4 consecutive $1 trillion budget deficits, with last year dipping into
the $900 billion range. Obama made a $3.8 trillion budget proposal to
congress last April, suggesting that any "cuts" would be minimal. It may
look good on paper, but the bill would almost cancel out any reductions
put in place as it proposes. Don't let the $734 billion budget deficit
fool you this year, since roughly $2 dollars more will spent per every
$1 dollar cut from the deficit.
Lastly Obama has done little to remedy the flow of jobs leaving America
for countries overseas. Five years ago, he promised revamp the tax code
to make hiring less hostile to American corporations. So far none of
that has happened. It is debatable when he says that "business leaders
around the world have declared that China is no longer the world’s
number one place to invest." In two years spanning 2008 through 2010,
trade with China cost America roughly 450,000 jobs
As far as conservatives are concerned, they were left on a deserted island
to starve. So much for hope and change, so much for getting both sides to talk and compromise....a major lie to get elected and then get his way is what Obama is all about. All he does is attack the conservatives on every issue, so how does expect them to compromise with him on anything?
And on Obamacare, Obama won the election because of his intentional, often-repeated "you can keep your plan" lie, one that was put out by his political team after weighing the pros and cons of lying. It was decided that the short-term gains of the lie (election won) outweighed the inevitable blow-back of lying. Which may turn out to be true, although things look pretty bleak for the Dems come mid-terms- even before the other Obamacare lies (you can keep your doctor) are fully exposed.
No liberals here can or will refute that their party used intentional lying as a tactic to win the election. All they can do is attempt to deflect. Which makes them complicit in the administration's dishonesty. Lying: it's a "progressive" disease.
