Obama’s Record Setting Presidency

By Chuck Green of the Denver Post

Obama has:

Largest budget ever.

Largest deficit ever.

Largest number of broken promises ever.

Most self-serving speeches ever.

Most golf rounds ever.

Most vacations ever.

Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever.

Fastest dive in popularity ever!

It was Bush’s fault!
On G. W. Bush:
He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.

He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo
in the first year.

He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter of last year.

Yes, it's all George Bush's fault ! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.

If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved.

His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb
and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel.

North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government

What makes this story so sweet is the fact that Chuck Green is a life-long liberal Democrat.

Tea Party Down-Grade

The democrats and some republicans are looking to put the blame on anyone but themselves for the downgrading of our countries AAA credit rating when the blame lies squarely on them.

The Tea Party from its inception has been harping that we need to cut the debt, cut spending and in turn, cut the size of the federal government.

Standard and Poor’s explanation for the down-grade was the result of the government’s failure to cut spending. They feel the cuts were not deep enough and no plan was shown to curb spending.
Standard and Poor’s even warned that if the debt wasn’t cut by $4 trillion, they would down-grade America’s credit rating.

Here’s another way to look at it so you can understand what this latest plan did:
A family making $58,000 spends $75,000 a year and has a credit card debt of $325,000. The new plan is that the family will now only spend $72,000 a year. Makes a big difference doesn’t it?

Here comes Obama, the democrats and a few RINO’s calling the credit rating drop as “the tea party down-grade” This is one messed up political machine we have running right now. How can anyone make the connection that the tea party is to blame for this? Governemnt officials did exactly the opposite of what the tea party wanted, which by the way was the same thing Standard & Poor's suggestions were to avoid this down-grade, yet here we have democrats proclaiming that it is the tea party's fault.

Why is he not attacking the tariffs imposed on our exports to China and Mexico? Mexico taxes our companies 17% to sell a product in their country and China charges us 19%, yet we charge them nothing to sell their goods here.

Obama, in today’s speech, tells us he can't find anywhere to cut spending. I have a few suggestions for him, starting with the Dept. of Education, The Federal Reserve and the repeal of ObamaCare just to get started and these will save us trillions almost immediately.

The republicans are always accused to catering to the rich while the democrats cater to the poor. The democrats what to keep the poor -- poor so that they will not have to pay taxes and in turn, will keep voting for democrats.

The Tea Party Won?

A Detroit News column from today (8/2/2011) annouced “Stop griping on the debt deal tea party, you won”

Who won?

Nobody won.

What happened was, we allowed the largest even debt ceiling increase in history ($2.4 trillion). The Republicans settled for "future cuts" 5 years down the road, which is business as usual from the DC elite.

I don’t want cuts down the road, this is business as usual for the DC elite, I want cuts NOW!... TODAY!

I want to see federal government workers walking out with a cardboard box and a pink slip.

Oil Can Harry is at this minute working on who to put on this debt reduction panel and who he can trick or bribe the republicans to put on it. RINO's like McCain, Lindsey and Collins that will vote FOR tax increases.

John Boenher for the second time this year had his ass handed to him and he still thinks he did well and so does a lot of the other republican congressmen who voted for this POS bill. The only people that stood strong against this was the tea party members in the house.

We've been screwed again while the GOP country club types and talking heads such as Bill Bennett are trying to sell this as a good compromise... compromise my ASS!

There is so much waste in this system and the only idea the democrats can come up with is to take more from us, raise our taxes and to hit up the rich for more.

It’s much easier than doing some actual work that will cut out programs that allow funds to go to a student to pay his tuition ($22,000) a year plus a stipend for food ($1,000) a month and ($450) a month for rent and after 3 years he can’t speak proper English, carries a D average and uses his rent money on illegal drugs to party with.

Studies have shown that there is somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 billion a year in Medcare fraud. Why are they not tracking this down?

We need people to do the work in DC to restore this country to what it once was, not to vacation, golf, travel, eat and drink on our dime.

I saw a quote from Warren Buffett. He said he could end the debt problem immediately. “Anytime the deficit reached 3% of GDP, all congressman and senators become ineligiable for re-election.
