If I were going to draw a picture of Obama, it would not be a picture of him as Hitler or as the Joker. I would draw a picture of him as an errant boy scout.
He would be pictured as above, but the hand that is behind his back would have the fingers crossed.
“I passed a health care bill.”
[That he can say in honesty. However the rest of it is not so pretty. With the exception of Americans who are still lucky enough to be employed by employers who offer health insurance and/or who will be employed by Wall Street corporations, the bill has almost no benefits for other Americans. AND it imposes a heavy penalty on the majority of Americans who cannot afford health insurance. In 2016, over 50 million Americans will be forced to purchase healthcare insurance from the very Wall Street crooks who are currently robbing us blind. Where is the benefit in that? All it means is that they will create junk insurance policies with high deductibles that Americans will be forced to purchase. I consider his healthcare bill to be the most cynical piece of legislation that the Obama administration has to date dumped on the American people.]
“I brought 100,000 troops home from Iraq in 2010.”
[Yes, but a DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY Congress in 2007 voted to send 100,000 troops over to Iraq and they continued to rubber stamp Bush's requests for unfunded military appropriations just as the Republicans before them had done. In 2010 the troops that he brought home were the troops that the Democratic majority Congress sent over there in 2007. 50,000 US troops remained there--the same number that Bush had there before the Democratic majority Congress took over. It looks like they will leave Iraq finally at the end of 2011 BUT not because it is what Obama, the Wall Street War profiteers, and his administration want. It is because the Iraqi people are demanding that they get the hell out.]
EVEN WORSE IF THE STRAIGHT TRUTH WERE TOLD:
“With a Democrat majority Congress I supported the Congressional actions to defund ACORN–a nonprofit organization whose only “crime” it was to empower poor people.”
“With a Democrat majority Congress I signed the bill to extend the Bush Tax Cuts when not doing so could have helped our economy and I knew that. My decision was in no way based on the good for the majority, but rather the good for the 1%. I knew exactly what I was doing. I wanted the money from the rich for my 2012 campaign coffers. I sold out the American people for my own political ambitions.”
“With a Democrat majority Congress in February of 2010 I approved the extension of the Patriot Act. I knew that most Americans despise this act so I conspired with members of the House to make sure that this was hidden in another bill that had nothing to do with the Patriot Act.” Congress stuck the renewal of the Patriot Act into H.R. 3961, a bill titled Medicare Physician Payment Reform Act. Go see for yourself: Select the Number of the bill [HR 3961] and then Select Text of Legislation that appears in the table on this page. Now please pay attention to item 6 on the list of versions. [ilwq: See how clever Congress is at hiding important detail from the voters? They deliberately deceive and mislead the American public. They should all be impeached.]
“With a Democrat majority Congress I hid billions dollars of funding for IMF in a military appropriations bill in May of 2009. Most American taxpayers don’t even realize that we and taxpayers of other western nations fund this heinous arm of the global banking cartel.”
“With the assistance of both Wall Street millionaire Democrats and Wall Street millionaire Republicans I passed three Wall Street one-sided trade agreements. If you thought NAFTA was bad, wait until you see how much richer the 1% get off these crooked deals.”
and there are so many more badges of deceit that Obama has earned.
Now you tell me, Mr. President: What is the difference between you and any other errant boy scout who stretches the truth with his rhetoric in order to get badges and win approval? But unlike Boy Scout whose behavior does not affect 300 million Americans–your behavior does.
A snide, aloof, cynical little Lord Fauntleroy would be another good depiction of him–a brat who pulls all kinds of mischief and then acts as if butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth.
