Obama Games

Updated on February 27, 2013

Please Take A Seat

This whole thing with the Community Organizer-in-Chief continuing to be out there on the campaign trail spreading snake oil to his adoring, or sometimes captive, masses is wearing thin. He doesn't seem to have the intestinal fortitude to deal with any crisis situation, especially those he creates himself. It's like watching Sad Sack try to peel potatoes without a potato peeler.

The guy actually had the audacity to tell this nation's governors this at their gathering in Washington DC the other day, "At some point, we've got to do some governing. And certainly, what we can't do is keep careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis." So my question to Obama is why he doesn't first stop manufacturing crisis after crisis and then the follow on is why he doesn't try governing this nation rather than continue to try to divide the people further than he already has. It's ironic that he was speaking to the very group of men and women that actually govern after they were elected.

The Continuous Lying Needs To Stop

The President needs to stop lying about reality and use facts rather than scare tactics. The general public seems to be catching on even though the Lame Stream Media parrots his absurdities like they are true. It all began on October 22nd in a debate with Romney when he stated that sequestration was something Congress proposed. Congress didn't propose it but Obama and Jack Lew and that group of pick pockets took it to Harry Reid as the solution to getting the Budget Deficit Commission to do something. That group was created to fail and so the crisis was born. The crisis can was kicked on down the road for 18 months.

So now Obama wants to blame the Republican controlled House of Representatives for the very crisis that he himself created. That is his usual game plan of avoiding responsibility for his own actions which result from his inexperience, lack of qualifications and the absence of leadership he continually displays. The fact is that the House has sent two separate bills to reallocate the necessary budget cuts in a balanced approach to avoid the current mess he created. Those bills were sent to the Senate where they were DOA as long as Harry Reid continues to obstruct legislation initiated in the House.

The Obama Answer

The reality, if one listens to Obama closely, is that he wants to raise taxes again on the American public in order to continue to spend money recklessly like a drunken sailor on shore leave. His rhetoric has nothing to do with lower spending, not a thing. He doesn't want to cut spending, he wants to increase it more than the 20% he has achieved so far. That's an indisputable fact. A basic principle of economics is that if you want to stifle an economy then you raise taxes. I'm not sure why the Democratic party doesn't get that.

The 85 billion dollar reduction that the sequester will kick in the day after tomorrow is smoke and mirrors money once again because the 2.4% is a reduction in the spending level that is there now. Any CEO and board of directors would love to be faced with such a minor reduction in spending to begin to right the ship. But that is just the beginning of what needs to occur, not the final solution. Obama sees a growing government bureaucracy as the solution to the nation's problems rather than being what it is - the actual problem itself.

Delivering Like Clock Work

Back in the day we used to have the Combat Engineers lay out a thick smoke screen so that we could move around undetected until we had things in position to pounce. That's what is presently going on and has been for quite some time. Back on January 1st of this year Congress capitulated and gave Obama the tax increases he asked for, and others increased by default which all American workers felt. Obama has been using the word balanced to describe his inability to now balance that 620 billion dollar tax increase with the necessary spending cuts. He wants more tax increases and no spending reductions again. That is his answer to solving the budget deficit problem.

The other part of this equation, mark my words, is that when the economy reacts to that tax increase of $620 billion combined with the $6 trillion cost of Obamacare that is coming straight at the bottom line he wants someone else to blame again other than himself. He is the one who is brilliant at creating crisis after crisis without ever wanting to lead and provide the answers and it isn't increasing taxes. It is cutting out all the spending and printing money the supposed leaders of this country have done for too long. He did have a lot of balls to lecture the Governors of our states on governing and leading.

Friday when the sequester kicks in the sky isn't going to fall, the nation's Capitol will remain opening unfortunately and life will go on. $85 billion is peanuts compared to the $3.6 trillion that they are thinking of spending this year and thereby adding at least another trillion in debt to the existing 16.5 trillion on the clock now. Are you Obamazoids getting the picture yet? He doesn't know anything about governing and leading. Not one thing.

"Like"It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Gall. It takes gall to go in front of the governors and tell them the States need to govern after hammering the final nail into the coffin for States representation. Perhaps he hopes they don't remember that his leadership led to a HealthCare Bill that passed despite the majority of States suing against it. Perhaps he hopes that they don't yet 'get it' that the Supreme Court ruling that upheld that Bill effectively assures that their senators are no longer obligated to represent for their States. Perhaps he doesn't care that his legacy will be that he has firmly established partisan politics as the way of government for the future.

      Or maybe, just maybe, he's happy and proud that the federal government is now dysfunctional and seeks to extend this success to the States governments.

      Fred - News reports this morning are saying that Obama has flip flopped on the sequester. Seems the sky isn't going to fall! He knows how to cry wolf for sure. Heck of a trait for the President of this nation. Crybaby cries wolf again.

      One thing about this guy: He's as consistent as they come. As long as he's in office, the same song and dance will continue. Nero supposedly fiddled while Rome burned. Obama is campaigning for class warfare while America burns.

      The whole thing is just sickening. All of Obama's taxes, regulations, dollar destroying money printing, union coddling, and anti-American tariff policy will keep killing domestic investment, and make unemployment continue to rise. At some point, the tax rate won't matter because there won't be any tax base; most people will be without jobs and receiving government support to stay alive. Obama seems to believe that the government "creates things" and so is deserving of ever increasing amounts of revenue. But all it really does is create policy that destroys the very investment and work that really creates things. Eventually, it won't matter how big government benefits are - once enough people are out of work, nothing will be produced, and there won't be anything to buy. Try eating a regulation, or wearing a law to keep you warm in the winter. We as a nation, and Obama in particular, have to face the fact that the Adminstration's "New Deal On Steroids" is ultimately going to lead to complete national financial collapse. The evidence keeps proving it, but Obama is allergic to facts.

      This President could literally get some of his loyal worshipers to leap off a cliff by convincing them they really could fly. When they hit bottom and were dead, he and the media would find a way to blame their deaths on someone else.

      Everything out of his mouth is a lie. The media covers for him and protects his every move. Over half the country believes everything he says and never questions him whatsoever. I'm afraid folks that this country is going to have to hurt and hurt really bad before they wake up.

      The Potus is dragging us all down a road of spend, spend, spend until there is nothing left and he gleefully knows it. Yet, he lies through his capped teeth smirk about all the woes of our economy being the fault of the evil conservatives. The man has never taken responsibility for anything. Why would he start now? WillStar called it. Obama has remarkable charisma. Combine that with a heart that desires the downfall of America and you get exactly what we have now, us in deep do-do with him steadily shoveling more on the stinky mound!

      Obama has superb charisma, and that's all a candidate needs in today's electronic media world. If all we knew about Obama was what we read in the paper, he would never have been elected.

      The American electorate was charmed by the TV image of a handsome and gifted orator, and not much else. Women were fainting in the aisles, and supposed professional journalists were drooling and madly in love.

      After all, he had almost no experience at anything, and then, suddenly and out of nowhere, he became the leader of the free world. He's a super rock star, but not a good president, and not a good leader. His record (which is ignored by all) is abysmal. We are headed for a disaster.

      Perhaps if members of Congress were willing to pay $500,000 each, they too might get an occasional meeting with the President? But then they would be asking for private donations because they would not be willing to spend any of their own money on such a waste of time.

      The latest audacious event, Jim, created by his former campaign super PAC is a new wrinkle. Donate $500,000 to the organization and you are guaranteed personal access to our leader four times a year. That takes pay to play to new unheard-of heights!

      This man does not know how to do anything but campaign. It makes me sick that he continues go with his manipulations and people are so ignorant they don't want to see the writing on the wall. You spelled it out just exactly like it is!

      Audacity is the keyword here and its not "The Audacity of Hope", its the audacity to blame others for the very thing that your doing! The American poeple need to hold thier leaders accountible or they'll become accomplices to thier crimes!

      In all this I continue to see a man still campaigning for office -- even though supposedly this is his last hurrah -- wonder when he'll begin trying to extend tenure for presidents -- if he hasn't already and I've missed it. The "smoke and mirrors" and "watch this hand" moves should now be evident to even the most blind of the blind. Good Hub! Best/Sis

      Mike - The cult of personality that surrounds him is a bit out there. All the famous dictators and despots in history had their worshippers. Once the usefulness of the worshippers was expended they became expendable. If people would bother to study history the connection becomes a bit clearer. Then when the media becomes complicit it presents an even greater danger.

      So many, including the media, are willing to just ignore and even deny these lies. Even when they see a video proving his current statement is a flat out lie, they stay in denial.

      This borders more on "worship" than "loyalty."

      I doubt we can fix this until one of his lies affects them personally.

      I just can't take his lies another second. He is some president. He uses this moment to board yet another plane and campaign against the Dems. Did it ever occur to him to actually lead? Think not.
