A New Way Of Doing Business

Updated on March 10, 2012

Knocking For Who? You?

So Lets Start The Vetting

During the last presidential campaign I was writing in a different place on a rather infamous left wing site that will remain unnamed. I watched in astonishment as Barak Hussein Obama sold two empty words to a tired American public - "hope and change." As I went about my writing business I researched this candidate since the main stream media deemed him untouchable, and they still do for some strange reason. If he was an accident looking for a place to happen then the people who voted for this guy the first time got what they deserve but in the meantime the rest of us with a lick of common fiscal sense have suffered too.

Do you remember any of this? The better question is, "How much of this have you witenssed take place?" I'm not going to go over this lie by by lie because that isn't the subject of this Hub.

His Lips Were Moving

There has been a hew and cry for campaign finance reform for quite some time now. It isn't going to probably happen any time soon though for very obvious reasons. The subject here is bundling and bundlers. Bundlers are a politicians bread and butter in seeking election or re-election because that's where the money is. As in most cases, if one bothers to follow the money then a clearer picture should emerge of the person who is the both the donor and the recipient. Obama, even though he promised "a new way of doing business in Washington DC," needs to now define exactly what he meant since the "change" wasn't exactly what the average person thought he might be talking about.

You see if you are a skilled orator, and Obama can give a "fire em up" speech, you can speak volumes while really saying nothing. He has that knack as most community organizers do. This next video was his radio address he spieled on 2-28-09. He keeps using the words "I promised to" listen closely and think about what you have seen the past three years. "Page by page and like by line" made me choke when I listened to this. Stay with me because the next video will be very telling. Listen closely about the 3 minute 50 second mark.

Really? All Those Promises?

The job market isn't a rosy picture despite Obama telling us all that we have turned the corner. We haven't but his bundlers had a hay day with scooping up the rewards of fattening up his campaign coffers. The next video you need to watch is contained at the link below. Therein lies the proof of the pudding which puts a little definition to the "new way of doing business in Washington DC" that Obama promised us. Not much new but a lot more of the same way of doing business with the Chicago way added in for a touch of whatever. I can't use the word class here I must say.

I had to sit back and think about the fact that ABC News actually aired the truth. It's so unlike the Lame Stream Media to shine the truth on Obama and his administration. Unfortunately, for some strange reason, Diane Sawyer's expose isn't available on You Tube but this is the key video I am presenting here.

I appreciate all the Bush bashers of the world who like to ramble on about "Bush this" and "Bush that" but the truth is that Obama sometimes makes Bush look like a choir boy. He was the one during his last campaign who promised that he would finance his campaign one way and then turned around and did the opposite. Did anyone find that strange besides me?

Obama has given new definition to the program that my old friend the "Ground Squirrel" coined way back when - "The Jobs For Friends Program." Yes this political patronage gig has indeed been going on for a long time, too long in fact, but see the quote below.

“About 80% of those who collected more than $500,000 for Obama took ‘key administration posts’ as defined by the White House.”

So how is it that Obama "promised" that he would change the practice of influence peddling, which is the art of bundlers, and then surpasses George Bush's four year record in a mere two years. Some change huh? Seems that if you go out and raise in excess of $500,000 for the Prez you get to put your hand in the government cookie jar and pull out a prize. Has the culture in Washington really changed? Obama also lambasted Super PAC's. Remember that? Seems he has since "changed" his mind about that issue too. Now, in his mind, they seem to be the ticket to getting re-elected. That is if anyone is stupid enough to vote for the guy the second time.

Now I know many people have realized they were duped the last time around. Then there are others who light their votive candles on the altar they have erected for "The Anointed One" in that special place sacred only to them - their mind - but come on now. Hypocrisy is so easy to note. He did promise you "change," totally undefined many times, but not in this area. He was going to put a stop to the art of influence pedaling but instead has truly refined the art for those who actually bother to look.

As I said, "Just follow the money." Don't listen to what Obama says, watch what he does.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      I should have said "the Democrats need illegal *alien* votes to get him re-elected." Also, I think the basic idea for the southern border gun fiasco was conceived at the very top of the administration food chain. He thought of it, or Hillary did. I'm working on my Hub covering stuff that works in Europe but does not work in the United States, and gun control is high on the list.

      Sean - Strange how a racist like Holder sits in the AG chair making stupid decisions about voter ID laws and ignores little things like gun walking across our southern border. He likes to play that race card and wants to make sure everyone who isn't eligible to vote has the opportunity to vote.

      You know, I almost forgot that the Democrats need illegal votes to get him reelected. Guess they finally panicked and pushed the button, which might mean that ol' Karl is right:

      The sad reality is politicians are a bunch of parasites no matter where in the world you are. Obama is no different to all the rest…rhetoric, hollow promises and meaningless sound bites. And in simplistic terms is no different from Bush. Both have ignored the Constitution or amended it to suit their own ends. The only one who has a different stance on a number of issues and who isn’t afraid to voice them is Ron Paul. Of all the politicians around at the moment he is the brightest hope for America with his anti-war and anti-Fed stance and his belief in less government meddling, but what is the likelihood of him gaining the nomination…remote unfortunately.

      But to be honest Obama isn’t any better or worse than previous Presidents…he just made more empty promises than those who went before.

      Bush supported the banksters and gave them Government positions. Ignored the dodgy goings on in the financial world, mortgage fraud, perjury, money laundering for drug cartels, exporting arms to nations on which there was an arms embargo in operation. He challenged the Constitution and the idea of individual freedom in passing the Patriot Act. Funded unaffordable wars with un-repayable debt which has significantly contributed to the US debt which is designed NEVER to be paid off

      As has Obama and as will the next President because the reality is the position President of the United States is merely a puppet for those who really pull the strings…private global bankers. They control the world, not Presidents or Prime Ministers. At least Ron Paul recognizes this, hence his stand against the Federal Reserve.

      I’ve said before what a wonderful document the Constitution is yet the American people have idly sat by and watched politicians water it down or even just plain ignore it! Stop watching all that crap on TV, get out, protest, become informed and start to take back what they have unlawfully taken away from you. The US Constitution is a thing of beauty and is, in my humble opinion, the greatest document ever created and it saddens me greatly to see it being systematically dismantled!

      You know, another interesting thing about him that kind of proves that he thinks everyone but him is stupid, is that the time to really watch what he is *doing* is when he's quiet; i.e., when he's not in the news saying things that are opposite of what he's doing. That's when he's busy doing things that are unhealthy for America.

      Well said, "watch what he does not what he says", this is proof of anyone's character. I think people just like to hear good things and will currently follow anyone that offers them some hope (even though it is only in thought). Great article and enjoyed the read.

      American Romance - Now here I was thinking that happiness was a warm gun. Didn't The Beatles clue us in on that one? It's all good. I like researching and writing the FACTS.

      My Son works in research and development at Google. A little known fact is that Google has time travel technology which will allow you to view events from the future in a priority Google software. He sent me this snapshot of Obama giving his concession speech after he loses the election in 2012. Sweet !

      The biggest problem I have with Obama (among an entire tsunami of big problems) is not with his blatant lies--but with the ADHD-quality lack of attention span among so many of his listeners. It's downright amazing...or maybe not. Pam and I saw him as a used car salesman from the get-go, and a LOT of poeple buy used vehicles every year.

      But I do understand at least one of the basic principles he follows, which is that of the Big Lie:

      "...I'm the Pharaoh, and my great Egyptian army did NOT get its butt kicked in that last campaign. My daughter is over there to rule those peasants, NOT being held hostage to my good behavior."

      "...I'm (whichiver anti-Semite), and I'm telling you the Holocaust did NOT happen."

      Etc., etc., beyond ad nauseum.

      But hey. The struggle between the forces of Good and Evil has ALWAYS formed the crux of every story worth reading, every movie worth seeing, every tale worth telling. It's a warring Universe, and the Big Lie is the would-be oppressor's frequent weapon of choice.

      Remember in November!

      Great Hub Frog. It's honestly impossible to keep track of all of Obama's lies, but I can see the general drift. He just says what you want to hear, and then does whatever is best for himself. When the inevitable failure occurs, there's always someone else to blame (Bush, Palin, Reagan, Rush, etc.). His whole mind seems to be fixated on redistributing wealth, controlling all aspects of industry that shape opinion (media, academia, etc.), and transforming the world into a transnational glob with no national boundaries. Everything else is either a snap decision bound to fail because it got no thought, or something that needed to be done but was ignored because it has nothing to do with his personal priorities. The economic and geopolitical crises we face today require immense intelligence and courage to remediate. Sadly, Obama lacks both these qualities.

      I have talked to people that voted for him and will vote for him again. Doesn't matter what he says or does. Doesn't matter that he is the worst American hater of this country that I have ever seen. Takes from people that have worked hard and gives to people that haven't. How any one could have voted for him to begin with amazes me.....

      I guess I never understood the "hope and change" slogan.Hope of what? Change what? Empty words it struck me. The president never even came close to interesting me in his plans because I couldn't figure out what they were. It turned out worse than I thought though.

      It is nice to get some truth from someone. I couldn't watch long on the videos, my gorge was rising. His lies just seem to have no boundaries or end. It makes me sick when I see so many still listening to him. He lies so much and yet does the opposite and they don't open their eyes enough to see. If the economy is so great, why are my sons still looking for work after 3 years? There are no jobs out there.

      Keep writing the truth and maybe we will get some to open their eyes and at least look to see if he is telling us the truth.

      jim - Yes, I've seen the Larry Sinclair video. I'll pass on being Obama's vet. Even truth serum wouldn't work on that dude.

      Sean - He has sicked the IRS on the Tea Party Movement. I'm not sure that was the wisest decision he has ever made but he isn't known for wise decisions.

      Can't remember where I read about it, Human Events, I think, but he tends to unleash the IRS on major enemies to shut them up. Interestingly, that's a German trick. When the German government is targeted by German press, they unleash the IRS on the publication to put them out of business. I think, though, stuff like that only works in socialist countries like Germany - and tends to backfire over time in the United States. As soon as I get time, I have a growing list of fruitcake stuff that people try to import from Europe that doesn't work in the US - mostly because of geography. Everything from hunting, fishing, potholes, Autobahns and restaurant customer service. Just got to write the Hub. :-)

      You really put this together well. You do such a good job of vetting that I officially appoint you to the position of Obama's veterinarian.

      Have you seen that video with that dude who claims to be Obama's boyfriend? He claims he smoked Obama's johnson a few times and has offered to take a polygraph test, while challenging the president to do the same. If I were running against Obama, I'd let one of my super pacs run that sucker (no pun intended) 24 hours a day.

      mio - I'm sorry you've probably never had an original thought before in your life but I write about FACTUAL politics, not fairy tale MSNBC tripe. Isn't it terrible when those pesky little things called FACTS keep getting in the way. This election I will vet Obama. Stay tuned. It's nice to know you're a Hannity fan though. Keep watching his show and getting the truth for a change.

      PP - I've read somewhere that the amount of our money he has pissed down the green energy pipeline is about $1 trillion. That's our tax dollars he's dealing with.

      tsadjatko - Every once in a while a loon wanders through. Quick grab the net. I'm always flattered when I catch one with my writing ability.

      BPOP - Reflecting on a comment above there is at least one who is still asleep. Damn those pesky little facts. Like everything I presented above is a lie? Yeah, it's called "caught on tape." The vetting will continue.

      Very important piece. The video of Obama and his lies should run 24/7 during the campaign. If that doesn't wake up the brain dead, then nothing will. Up useful, interesting, awesome and shared with my followers.

      So mio cid, WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? - Hannity has hypnotized his audience(of which you are one)or they are all just a bunch of brain washed mindless followers (except you of course)? I guess you have a cone of silence you wear when listening to Hannity since 1998? or only you are so superior to the rest of us that you alone are immune to Hannity's powers? - your statements are just lame as it gets and tells volumes about you and nothing about us.

      Remember that line from that old Peter Paul and Mary song, "if you really say it

      the ra-di-o won't play it

      so we have to lay it

      between the lines yeah"

      well he was really saying it but the media wouldn't play it; aka Joe the Plummer; "I think we're all better off when we spread the wealth around a little."

      Since his coronation he's been spreading the wealth along with his BS around a lot!!!

      Have you seen the video between Joel Pollak and Soledad O'Brien discussing Critical Race Theory? The mainstream news is clueless and it's obvious that they have withheld information from us and have given Obama special treatment so that his radical background would not be known. It's shameful.
