Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

WASHINGTON (AP) – “That wasn’t me,” President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One. It actually was him – and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years – who shaped a budget so out of balance.

And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.

Obama met citizens at an Arnold, Mo., high school Wednesday in advance of his prime-time news conference. Both forums were a platform to review his progress at the 100-day mark and look ahead.

At various times, he brought an air of certainty to ambitions that are far from cast in stone.

FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a LIAR! Obama is trying to make himself look as if he is totally innocent and like he is the one sent to save us. His divine mission in life. Of course we ALL know that Obama is as full of SHIT as a Christmas turkey is dressing!

The poser in chief wants the American people to love him, he expects our adoration, unconditional love and a vote of confidence from the USA. He doesn’t want much, he just wants it ALL, and he’s not earning anything, he is demanding, and lying his way into the most devastating crash this nation has ever seen. And when it does happen, of course it won’t be HIS fault, I think we ALL know that.

Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama’s last two years as Illinois senator. Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush’s final months – a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.

Read this story from AP, it’s one of the best I have ever seen from them, it may not be online too long.

Nancy Pelosi, 4th in line for the Presidency

February 5th, 2009 . by TexasFred

EDIT: Yeah, it happens, on occasion I make a mistake. Pelosi is 2nd in line to assume the presidency. I’m not going to change the title, it’s already a HOT link but in all fairness, it wasn’t MY fault, I was figuring my taxes and TurboTax messed up… Yeah, that’s it, TurboTax ate my homework too, damn you TurboTax!

Now we ALL know that Nancy Pelosi is as dumb as a box of rocks, that has been exhibited on numerous occasions, but I never heard of anyone being ‘dumber than soap’. Must be a regional thing.

Maybe Pelosi is getting addle-brained in her old age, maybe it’s time for the old bat to give it up and stay home drinking wine or making bread. She damn sure doesn’t need to be 2nd in line to the presidency of the United States of America. Making gaffs like this, more than once from what I understand, just doesn’t look good.

The USA has a population of 303,824,640 (July 2008 est.), that figure comes from a 10 second Google search. You would think that someone in the position of Speaker of the House would get the facts straight BEFORE they spoke!

And we ALL know that the Dem/Libbers are going to say we’re just picking on poor OLD Nancy, she only made a ‘misspeak‘, well, what did the Dems and Libbers say every time GWB made one of his famous ‘misspeaks‘?? Is it just me or is turnabout fair play?

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

“He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,” Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops – and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its “state of weakness and political confusion.”

“However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open.” Zebari says.

Though Obama claims the US presence is “illegal,” he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate. His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the “weakened Bush administration,” Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate.

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

There are many things that can be said concerning Sen. Barack Hussein Obama. Many things actually, none of them contain the words, honesty, integrity, America 1st, truth, honor or anything even remotely resembling morality!

Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth, at the same time, and neither side speaks anything that can be believed. Obama cares about a few things, 1st and foremost is OBAMA and getting to the Oval Office. 2nd, his vow to stand by Islam. 3rd, his secret desire to turn America into a socialist haven, headed by him and run under sharia law.

Our troops, the American people and this nation are nothing more than a stepping stone for Barack Hussein Obama, he wants to change America alright, and if we live through that change, we won’t recognize what’s left…

A big tip of the Stetson to American and Proud, where I found this one!

Palin’s Chief Qualification is She ‘Hasn’t Had an Abortion’

She ‘Hasn’t Had an Abortion’

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler reportedly lashed out at Sarah Palin Wednesday, saying the Republican vice presidential candidate’s “primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.?

Politico.com reports that Fowler, wife of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Don Fowler, said that John McCain’s decision to choose an abortion rights opponent would not boost his candidacy among many women.

“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,? she told Politico.com.

Palin — a self-described “hockey mom? and mother of five children — gave birth April 18 to her youngest child, Trig, who is diagnosed with Down syndrome.

Appearing on FOX News Wednesday, McCain campaign spokeswoman Jill Hazelbacker called Fowler’s statement “despicable? and “sad,? and said voters from all parties should be happy Palin is McCain’s running mate.

Her candidacy is, “a historic moment for this country,? Hazelbacker said of Palin.

Fowler issued an apology Wednesday evening.

“I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive,? she said in a written statement. “I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue. Whether it’s the environment, the economy, the war or a woman’s right to choose, there are people who will cast their vote based on a single issue. That was the only point I was attempting to make.?

Don Fowler last week was forced to apologize after being captured on an amateur video during an airplane flight chuckling while saying, “Hurricane (Gustav) is going to hit New Orleans about the time (the Republican National Convention) starts. … That just demonstrates God is on our side.?

There is not too much that can be said about the above statement that it hasn’t already said for itself.

All I have to say is this, if Fowler’s remarks are an example of what the Democratic leadership calls CLASS, I want NO part of it. Ms. Fowler, you and your husband are, without a doubt, the most despicable pieces of garbage to emerge from the debacle that IS the Democratic party to date! The Democrats have many ills but you 2 are stunning examples of everything that is WRONG with the Democrats.
