Just so you know, I was not able to post this opinion by Tom in N.C. last night prior to Obama’s repulsive speech. But as fate would have it, Tom nails it!
Lie to the Union Address
A well known comedian named Ron White once said “You can’t fix stupid”, the same can be said for avowed socialists. Here you have a president, and just the mere mention of Obama as president raises the bile in my throat, who has absolutely no regard for for the American taxpayer and a Congress in open rebellion against the will of the American people. In all my 53 years I have never never been more outraged and disgusted with our government, from the laughably referred to stimulus plan that was supposed to head-off unemployment from going above 8%, but now after Obama’s much ballyhooed stimulus plan unemployment stands at 10+%. Let’s also not forget using TARP funds to bailout AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, GM, Chrysler and 825 other companies, effectively giving control of these companies to a marxist infested, corrupt government, and while I am not an economist and don’t claim to be, I also note that due to Obama’s failed economic policies that 147 banks have failed during his presidency while during the period from 2000 thru 2008 only 55 banks failed, but don’t just take my word for it, check out the FDIC website: http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/banklist.html
This is just another indicator that he is tearing down our economy one block at a time.
With our country over $12 trillion in debt, the democrats are still pushing for Obamacare, or better known as socialized hope-you-don’t-mind-waiting-six-months-for-your-cancer- treatment-here’s-an-aspirin-while-you-wait healthcare, which would surely bankrupt this country, oh and lets not forget cap and trade so Obama can dictate to us which frigging light bulb we can use and how warm or how cool we can keep our home or which car we can drive.
Then there’s the continuing foreign policy debacle that threatens each and every American that travels outside of this country, correction; make that every American period, I mean we have a porous northern and southern border and Al Qaeda is still in the business of killing Americans and Obama still wants to treat these murdering terrorist bastards as common criminals such as the Nigerian born fruit-of-the-boom bomber Mutallab. Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary, aka biggest dumbass on the planet remarked that valuable intelligence was gathered from Mutallab after only 50 minutes of interrogation before he clammed up after his miranda rights were read to him. True, he did say that there would be others behind him but now he has been granted the same rights as any other American courtesy of Obama’s DOJ and now he is all lawyered up and might as well have his mouth sewn shut. So now we know there will be others, but without names, timelines or other details we don’t have a clue when or where the next man caused disaster (liberalspeak for terrorist attack) will take place. Thank you Eric Holder and Obama, you just made our country and citizens more vulnerable to attack.
I really feel for the citizens of NYC when the terror trials begin, thanks to Obama and his DOJ, in another example of their contempt for the American people, and their decision to have the trials in NYC, the memories of 9/11 will come flooding back. Trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in civilian court like he knocked over a liquor store instead of instigating the destruction of the WTC Twin Towers. In doing this it gives these dangerous terrorists a platform to spew anti-American hatred just blocks away for the site of the most heinous terror attack on American soil.
And now just an hour from Obama’s State of the Union Address, I fully expect him to try and justify everything I mentioned above. He will talk about the nonexistent jobs he has created, how he has kept the country safe while not mentioning how his Homeland Security Dept. dropped the ball and almost caused the destruction of an airliner and the deaths of over 300 people on Christmas Day if not for the actions of a Dutch citizen who subdued the terrorist. He will also claim that the majority of Americans want healthcare reform, which is an outright lie since the latest polls show only 38% of americans favor healthcare reform, but I suspect he will ignore that little inconvenient truth, as will he ignore the unaccounted for billions of dollars in stimulus funds that supposedly saved 2 million jobs while we have lost 4 million jobs (fuzzy math seems to be the one thing this administration excels at). Obama also plans to announce a government spending freeze which means that it will barely make a dent in the overall deficit and is more for show than substance, but that’s a liberal for you.
I doubt I can set through one minute of Obama’s lies and false promises much less one hour but maybe I’ll hold my nose and choke down the bile and listen to him once again try to con the American people, it won’t be so easy this time, this is not 2008 and the American people have been enlightened and educated to his radical socialist agenda. Maybe this time instead of just one person yelling you lie, we can have every Republican in the chamber yell YOU LIE!!! all at once even multiple times during the speech, maybe then this dirtbag will finally get the message. Obama, you are going to have one heck of time selling your line of BS this time around.
