Memory Lapses And Obama
First In A Series
I reckon it's time for a short series as we prepare ourselves for another memorable State of the Union address by our Deceiver-In-Chief. Oops, I meant Commander-In-Chief and I use that term very loosely as few true leaders lead from the rear. So lets prepare the table, break out our finest paper plates and red solo cups and get ready for the frivolity. For those with the latest in remote controls practice up on the exact location of that mute button. We should expect more of the same old, same old with his teleprompter in high gear. Pull out your calendars and circle next Tuesday, January 24th for another fateful speech about how he was going to turn things around in three years but things just weren't going the way he wanted them to go. Expect him to blame everyone but himself and his useless, money spending administration. Do I expect to see a pout or two? I think so. Do I expect him to use his usual empty, fiery rhetoric? You betcha I do. His actions contradict his words so I have also have come to expect that from the man.
A stroll down memory lane is where I will take you friends, and fellow countrymen, during the course of this series. It's now easy to track his record since he can't vote "present" anymore and his naivety and inexperience have now been on display for three (3) plus years. Of course, many of us pointed this out when he ran for the office. But that hope and change thingy got in the way of using logic and common sense when selecting a person to sit in the chair of the highest office in this land. Whoops! There are now enough contradictions just on You Tube to have a field day when this campaign gets hot and heavy. So lets go...
Teleprompters Front And Center Please
I reckon the first thing Obama has forgotten is that he promised to usher in a new era of corruption free, lobbyist free, reward the good old boys and girls type of environment in the nation's Capitol. I always wondered how a junior Senator from Illinois was going to make that happen when the career, pick pockets weren't going to have much of that put on their plate. Putting the polish on this is relatively easy. What we have witnessed is a boon doggle called Solyndra with more Solyndra's peeking over the horizon. All in the name of exercising his pipe dream green initiatives. That one has cost us a cool $535 million to date. His HHS Secretary has handed out Obamacare exemptions to his political allies like candy at Halloween. And he has funded an organization that has been deep into voter fraud. All they had to do was change their name to protect the guilty. Yeah, that would be ACORN for the uninitiated. They're still out there.
Missed my missives about Solyndra did you? Here's a link that lays out the FACTS. You know the little things progressives and liberals don't want to get in the way?
Scam? Flim Flam? Is There A Difference?
Pawns? Tell Me...
So as Obama forgets as he prepares his teleprompter for his next State of the Union address let us remember. He'll forget so we need to remember and remind those who have enough sense to be paying attention. Do I care if someone doesn't like a reminder or two? If you're a betting man, don't count on it.
Next thing he has conveniently forgotten is his "signature" piece of legislation and how that went down. This ties into his SOTU address where he told this nation that health care was going to be put on the back burner while job creation became the priority. Then he conveniently forgot what he promised and spent the next eighteen months ramming what the majority of Americans said we don't want rammed down our throats. In the meantime, the economy and job situation continued to go down the hole in the tank.
Corruption? When he held closed doors meetings with the likes of the AFL-CIO and other unions, pharmaceutical companies and who knows who else how transparent was that? I could see right through it myself and it stunk. Then to protect those same unions from the adverse economic impact of his grand Obamacare scam he turned around and issued those same groups waivers. In the meantime, large corporations (remember those people who create jobs?) have had to brace for the economic fallout as did the insurance companies. It's okay to reward your friends and war chest donors but again at whose expense? The tax payer needed to bend over and grab the Vaseline once again. What's good enough for us insn't obviously good enough for his union stooges
Smell The Stench Yet?
Part of Obama's handout stimulus bill included goodies for the likes of Solyndra and the other either bankrupt, or soon to be bankrupt, green energy companies. But understand this and I known darned well Obama has forgotten all about this fiasco. There were funds given to the Association for Community Reform Now (ACORN). Let me see if I remember correctly. When Obama was a community organizer wasn't there a tie in between that corrupt voter fraud organization and himself? Maybe you, gentle reader, can fill in some blanks here. ACORN has been repeatedly convicted of voter fraud across this nation and he gave them more tax payer dollars to do their dirty deeds in a stimulus bill? Who the heck was he stimulating with that one? More dead voters I reckon.
The bottom line for this first of the series is recognition that instead of using the powers granted by the US Constitution to the chief executive of this country he has ushered in a new era of corruption at a greater magnitude than we had ever witnessed before. He has taken it upon himself to attempt to dictate the winners and losers in a free market economy. An economy he despises and is evidntly intent on destroying.
So what say you, be ye a liberal or a conservative or lying anywhere between those two? Is enough enough yet?
