Who's Obstructing Obama?

Once again the President and his minions in the Democrat party are blaming Republicans for obstructing "The Chosen One's" policies and initiatives. Once again they are assuming that we the people are stupid and will not see the truth for ourselves.

Fact: Democrats have held the majority of both the House and Senate since 2006. They have had an absolute, unbeatable majority since 2008. This means that since 2008 they have had the power to pass any bill they want and the Republicans can not do a damned thing to stop them.

Fact: The American people have not supported the most significant portions of the liberal agenda, including cap and trade, government takeover of healthcare, immigration reform. There are literally hundreds of polls available on the internet that show the lack of support. Five minutes with Google will find all the proof of this needed. Add to this the three surprising elections lost in traditional the Democrat strongholds of Virgina, New Jersey and Massachusetts and you can easily see the opposition to the liberal agenda.

So what is the truth? Despite all of claims of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the braindead members of the mainstream media, the obstruction is not coming from the Republicans in Congress.

Reject the lies folks. Think for yourself. God gave you a brain, use it. Don't let polpigs think for you. Don't let union leaders think for you. Don't let the mainstream media think for you.

State of the Union Address: Truth is in short supply

What a glorious performance. President Barack Hussein Obama standing before the assembled houses of Congress, reading nearly flawlessly from his multiple teleprompters, jutting out his chin and looking skyward and sounding like a man of the people. Just like Campaign 2008 - hope and change you can believe in! Yippee. The Magic is back! Or is it?

It is interesting to see that within hours, Obama's first State of the Union speech is being torn apart not only by the usual folks but also within the mainstream media (MSM) as witnessed by this Associated Press article, FACT CHECK: Obama and a toothless commission. For instance,

OBAMA: He called for action by the White House and Congress "to do our work openly, and to give our people the government they deserve."

THE FACTS: Obama skipped past a broken promise from his campaign - to have the negotiations for health care legislation broadcast on C-SPAN "so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies." Instead, Democrats in the White House and Congress have conducted the usual private negotiations, making multibillion-dollar deals with hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and other stakeholders behind closed doors. Nor has Obama lived up consistently to his pledge to ensure that legislation is posted online for five days before it's acted upon.

During the second longest SOTU speech in history, Obama made the usual promises, attacked the popular targets and posed for the cameras at every opportunity. It was obvious that he was trying to position himself as a spokesman for the middle class and the leader of the middle-of-the-road crew. This worked for him in 2008 but now the American people have a full year of watching Obama at work and surely will not fall for this act.

Sometimes we perpetuate a lie by refusing to speak the truth. By not calling out the Congress, controlled by Democrats since 2006, for their more than ample share of blame for any woes in this country, Obama continued the lie. The Democrats took control of both the House and Senate in 2006. According to the federal government, the recession started in 2007. Figure it out folks.

The bottomline is simple: this was just another speech by another tin horn dictator convinced of his divine right to rule.

State of The Union Preview

On January 27, 2010, President Obama and his trusty teleprompters will deliver his first State of the Union address. On this eve, the Chosen One will stand before Congress and seek to "reconnect with the middle class". Since many Americans will actually be working or busy with family matters or just plain not willing to waste the time listening to political rhetoric, we are giving you a brief preview off the speech.

During the speech, Obama will either outright blame Bush for all of his failures or refer to the "mess he inherited" at least a dozen times. Of course, he will not mention that his party, the Democrats, have been in charge of Congress since 2006 and that Congress is responsible for passing massive spending measures.

He will stop several time, jut his chin out and look skyward several times, holding the pose long enough for the fawning press to snap hundreds of pictures.

Since the Democrats thrive on class warfare, Obama will attack banks and bankers. Of course he will not mention that Canadian banks did not need to be bailed out primarily because they had not been forced by their government to issue subprime mortgages.

He will use the word "look", as in "look, this mess I inherited was bigger than I thought" a minimum of a dozen times.

Count on several pitches for his much despised healthcare taken over plan. Since he promised the Hispanic Caucus action on illegal alien amnesty, figure on hearing a bit about this, as well.

We will also hear about his plan to freeze discretionary spending, which along with freezing the already inflated salaries of his advisers, amounts to almost nothing but sounds ever so tough and serious.

In the end it will be the usual political speech filled with half truths, lies and hollow promises intended only to boost his ratings. And underlying it all, will be a contempt for the intelligence of the American voter.

We Are ALL In This Mess Together

This is probably going to come as a surprise to many Americans who seem to feel that everything can be defined in terms of party politics: there are some issues that are far too important to be treated to the blame game and name calling that passes as political debate. For instance :


Blaming Bush as the left is fond of doing or bashing Obama as the right
loves doing has nothing to do with the security of this country and her
citizens. Security must not be a political issue and should be handled
by professionals who actually know what they are doing
and not a bunch
of lifetime politicians and bureaucrats who's decisions are driven not
by reality but by the desire to protect their own power.

Openness and transparency in government

We were promised openness and transparency by the current President and the political party presently with control of both houses of Congress. Openness and transparency is something that benefits all of us, left or right. We should demand this of any President or Congress whether we voted for them or not. Many state and local governments have strict open meeting laws on the books.

Regardless of political leaning, we all benefit from liberty and freedom; if we all don't defend it, we all will lose it.

The choices are simple: wake up and work together on the issues that demand a unified voice or continue to play the childish blame game and collectively lose everything that makes this country great.
