Barrack Hussein Obama had his third state of the union address tonight. Imagine it was to mark his 100 days of unabashed money spending. And, to celebrate more and more Socialism for America.
Obama has had more press conferences than Clinton or Bush--but I predicted he would do so before he stepped into office.
What else is predictable is the fact he didn't talk about the massive spending bills he has signed. Oh, yes, he mentioned he signed something today--but true to form he cannot specifically say what is in the bill with a connect the dots plan of what it will do.
Obama and congress passed a $3.4 trillion budget outline that will help him pass health care reform later in the year, today before he cost each network anywhere from $1.5 to $10 million and didn't go into detail about this.
For instance, did you know when the White House requests TV stations to air his boring talks (much ado about nothing) they are aired as PSAs? Public Service Announcements, which are done at the expense of the TV stations.
Last February The Washington Post went into detail the cost to each station. One of the points the newspaper made was: "Although the broadcast networks can opt out of carrying these presidential appearances, "you don't want to incur the wrath of the White House" because "if you're on the [poop] list, you are last in line for interviews and things like that," one network exec explained."
I can see their point, after all, asking about Obama's stance on abortion tonight was a real seat jerker. I was glad I was sitting down for that one. His stance has always been a bit murky (said with tongue in cheek). After all, we always have to get down to abortion in order to figure out who is the worthiest politician and if they are smart enough to carry on.
And, the question of being enchanted as president...about blew my hair back as well.
Yes, I can see why they wouldn't want to get aced out of those questions.
And, his funnies about people waving tea bags around, I am still laughing. His disdain and looking down his nose at the Tea Parties...as he says he will sit down for a serious talk. Umm...I'm confused, wasn't that what tonight was about? Oh, I forgot, it is to campaign for poll points--not to discuss how he is spending OUR MONEY, not to discuss why time after time he continues to break promises. You know, no earmarks, yet today again, another 400 plus earmarks.
And, after that he flew to Michigan at a cost of over one million dollars. This cost does not include the cost of the secret service. Yes, King Obama lives as Marie Antoinette is 'portrayed' to have lived. Little does he know, that was a myth. He asks us to tighten our belts as he takes his wife out on her Friday night dates at the cost of over a half million dollars--for the secret service, the bomb detection units, the sweeps for miles around, the traffic being held up for them, the list goes on. And, the extravagant Wednesday night cocktail parties held, which have nothing to do with government business, where according to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the menu includes alcoholic beverages (vodka martinis are an Obama favorite, reportedly) and wagyu steak at $100 per serving. At times, these parties happen when dignitaries are visiting from other countries, yet, they aren't even invited.
But, it's not his money, go ahead throw it around, you deserve it...we don't care. Or do we?
Michael Steele said as of today, adding up all of the packages Obama has signed, it will cost Steele's family of four, his wife and his two sons, a 17 year-old and a 16 year old (a typical American family), a total of $5 million dollars to pay back. This is what Obama is giving each one of us, what will that do for your families future?
House Minority Leader John Boehner said last week that the Democratic policies, including the health care and energy plans in their budget blueprint, will only hurt the economy and hurt jobs.
"The stimulus bill was supposed to be about jobs, jobs and jobs, and it turned into spending, spending and more spending," Boehner said. "And then we've got this budget. ... And the fact is, we've got trillion-dollar deficits in his budget proposal for as far as the eye can see."
But, you see Socialism cannot come in the front door, honestly. It has to be done by lies, deceit, appear as the answer to a solution, look like the government is taking 'care' of its people, and to show that Capitalism doesn't work. Can you think of a more effective way to break down Capitalism than to overspend? To break not only our futures, but that of our children, and our grandchildren.
God help us.
The Media Pressed Obama Hard
Q 1 What about the flu? A. Government doing everything it can, Mexican border doesn't need to be closed.
Q2 What about the auto business? A. Obama is hopeful, his goal to get out of the auto business.
Q3 Is waterboarding torture? A. Yes, it is. Winston Chuchill and Great Britain refused to torture. (IRA would disagree with this. The SAS is extremely feared world-wide)
Q4 Did waterboarding save lives? A. He would not answer this directly. Rough interrogation is a short cut he would not take. Guess LA is lucky he wasn't prez a few years ago...
Q5 What about Pakistan and nuclear weapons? Blah blah blah. WE have their nukes under control!
Q6 He likes Arlen Spector (What a surprise)
Q7 Afghanistan--we need to help stabilize them, being taken over from Al Quaeda. (My prediction from his campaign speeches, we are going to war with them. He sent another 21,000 troops this week, right after he took office sent 30,000 troops a few weeks ago news reports said 15,000 more were sent. )
Q 9-13 Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...
There were 13 questions in all, not one pressing him to answer what he is doing with the budget. But, Obama and his yes-men are taking credit for the economy stabilizing.
I don't see it, we live in the Bay Area and right now there are over 20,000 more foreclosed homes just in the Vallejo, California area ready to hit the market. These homes were purchased for $390K to $850K and if the market doesn't slide again (it has been going down weekly here) will have an asking price of around $150,000.
Our home has lost much of its value, yet our property taxes don't reflect it. Our schoos had to pink slip several of their teachers; our state gave out IOUs for tax refunds, and we are now paying the highest sales tax in the US, car taxes, etc.
Now, the next plan, socializing medical care--using the Swine flu, as their motto goes, never let a good crisis go to waste. Now, I ask you, please tell me one program the government does competently, efficiently (cost, time, paper), and in your best interests?
For instance, a VA loan at best takes 45 days to close, after everything has already been taken care of--which is considered fast--government time, plus the seller has to kick up about $1,500 or more in closing costs, pay for the pest inspection and home inspection, plus--have all repairs done on the report before they will allow their buyer to get a home. And, they ask for four trees of paperwork before it is all done. Even at the height of the housing boom, when appraisers were at a premium, inspection companies were working expanded hours, and loan reps were booked back to back with closing--they could still pull off a closing in two weeks time.
Medical and Medicare--just two examples, for children, you cannot get braces unless you have 12 points--of really bad troubles in your mouth. Doesn't matter if their teeth are so crowded they will lose them. Fillings--they are still using mercury fillings and you cannot choose to pay the $9 or $11 difference to get the non-mercury filling. Now, when the 'so-called green' light bulbs (filled with mercury) break the government almost requires a hazmat team to clean it up.
When asked why the patient could not have braces or choose non-mercury fillings, the answer is they are considered cosmetic dentistry. This is our government in action, looking out for our best interests.
God, help us.
