Obama Told Us His Plan - We Didn't Bother To Listen...

He told us in advance what he planned to do. Few of us were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from from Sunday, 07 Sept. 2008 "Meet the Press". The THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".
NOW GET THIS !!'Senator Obama replied:
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails --- perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......"
When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed,CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America "
Yes, you read it right.
Do we really want ANOTHER four years of this? Do we REALLY want to become a socialist/communist country? Your vote counts people - use it wisely....
EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEEDSTO READ THIS, KEEP IT GOING !!SAVE AMERICA BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE !!

Time to Put Obama's Dismal Record Under the Microscope
For starters, remember Obama’s stimulus package? Passed in 2009 under the name “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” Obama promised us that without its passage unemployment would rise dramatically and the deficit would expand. Well, here we are in 2012 and unemployment since the passage of the stimulus package has been as high as 10%-plus and at it's lowest has been a staggering 8.2%, which is where it sits right now. The package itself cost tax-payers $800 billion, and even The New Yorker notes that most Americans recognize that it either “did nothing to help…the economy” or may have “actively hurt the economy.”(One thing it did for sure was to put us $800 billion further in the hole.)
Then there’s the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare): the bill which Obama sycophant Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) helped push through the House with the promise that House members would find out what was in it once it passed. What we know now is that Obama’s promises about the cost for Obamacare were as far off base as Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity repeatedly said they were. In fact, a newly released study from the Mercatus Center at George Mason University finds that Obamacare “both increases a federal commitment to health care spending that was already unsustainable under prior law and [exacerbates] projected federal deficits relative to prior law.”
The study continues:“As currently written,[Obamacare] should be expected to increase federal spending obligations by more than $1.15 trillion over the upcoming decade and to worsen cumulative federal deficits by somewhere between $340 and $530 billion over the same period.”(In other words, if you think our current deficit of $15 trillion-plus is bad, just wait till you see how bad things get if Obamacare takes effect.)
Lastly, how about those Obama gas prices? Think of it—the same president who brought us an $800 billion stimulus package that didn’t stimulate, and who’s trying to enact a government takeover of our healthcare system that will spiral our national debt even further out of control, has also overseen a 100% increase in per-gallon gasoline prices during the last three years.
As I’ve written in other posts, these are Obama’s gas prices. They are the result of decisions he’s made, like the one he made in January when he nixed the Keystone Pipeline. Because of this, USNews has pointed out that “Obama has seen an even higher gas price increase than Carter dealt with under his administration.”
Folks, there is no reason to be afraid of Barack Obama. The rest of his record is as bad as the three aspects highlighted above. It's not 2008 anymore. It's 2012, and Obama only has failure to show for it.

Romney Paid More in Taxes than 99% of all Americans
This came as a shock even to me. The media have been doing a great job in propagandizing for Team Obama by making a campaign issue out of the fact that Mitt Romney “only” paid around 14 percent in taxes. Consider the following from the mostly liberal Washington Post:“[A]bout 96 percent of all taxpayers have a lower average [Federal income] tax rate than Romney.”
“More precisely, in 2010, somewhere between 90 and 95 percent of Americans had a lower effective income tax rate than Romney’s 13.9 percent. In 2011, somewhere between 95 and 97 percent of Americans had a lower effective income tax rate than Romney’s 15.4 percent, at least according to the latest IRS data from 2010.”
Romney pays millions of dollars in taxes — millions — and liberals like Harry Reid, who has not released his tax returns, still say that Romney is not paying his “fair share.” Consider these amazing tax statistics:
“The most recent Complete Report of Individual Tax Returns for 2010 from the IRS has a nice table on page 25 showing average tax rates by income group from 1986 to 2010. In 2010, the average income tax rate paid by all taxpayers was 11.8 percent — clearly less than the roughly 14 percent average income tax rate Romney paid last year. Most taxpayers earning under $100,000 pay an average rate of less than 9%. Those earning between $50,000 and $60,000 pay an average income tax rate of 6.5 percent.”
This is all because 47 percent (58 million) of all people who get a pay check don’t pay any federal income taxes. The claim that the “rich” are not paying “their fair share” is one of the biggest liberal lies out there, nearly as bad as “We’re from the government and are here to help you.”
Another thing. Because the Romneys are millionaires, they buy a lot of stuff. Every time they purchase something, they pay sales taxes, excise taxes, and other mandated taxes that consumers never see but are tacked on to motel and hotel bills, telephone bills, gasoline, and nearly everything we buy. Moreover, every time they buy or build something, their purchases go a long way to employ people as their spent money ripples through the economy.
It would be interesting to see the effect that a spent dollar has on the economy as compared to a taxed dollars
#11 Sep 23, 2012
Who cares what he makes. I think he would be a good candidate if the tea party didnt have so much control over the republican party. Romney is more moderate than people think
#13 Sep 23, 2012
By should be spelled buy. By definition of idiot, that would describe you.
If you don’t like reading the truth, read something else.

Obama has done nothing but bring our country down, destroy our economy and kiss the butts of these foreign counties. Nothing comes as a surprise to me when it comes to Obama, and his administration .
His actions have sure spoken louder then his words, he is the biggest con we have every had in the white house.
I don’t ever remember time when have seen this much corruption, and lies in our government, as we have seen since, Obama took office.
The whole thing with him meeting with pimp with a limp, was an embarrassment, that’s about as un-professional as it gets. We need someone with leadership, and will fight for our right’s, not a dictator.
I know if my vote count’s that someone wont be Obama.
I also saw where the white house has printed the 2013 calendars up, apparently they already think Obama will be re-elected, scary thought, and bad for us.

I guess republicans would be more happy if we were at war with every arab country in the world. I dont know who wrote that first comment but it is an outright lie. Cant believe people drink.the kool-aid that easy. I guess they would be happy if the 47% percent of people that mooch of the goverment for food, housing, and pay no income tax would take personal responsibility. So when your grandparents get taxed on thier social security, when our troops get taxed on battle pay, and children start to starve because thier parents have no access to food teapublicans will be happy. Lets not forget how the economy boomed under George Bush. Thats right, it didn't. The last president to bring this country into a surplus was Bill Clinton. So lets try Romney amd his recycled trickle down economics and see how you middle class teapublicans trickle down into poverty with no access to housing, food, or healthcare.

SO you can dismiss the meet the press transcripts? How and if so I'm sure they would love to know their transcripts are wrong. So Bill "come blow me" Clinton did it all on his own huh? Least we forget bot houses were lost to him mid term and his "surplus" didnt come about until the contract with America the repubs created came about. You are one of the blame Bush idiots because the moron i voted in for the last four years is a loser?
#17 Sep 24, 2012
Looks to me like the Democrats like communism that’s where we are headed. I can’t see how democrats can be so gullible. The Democrats are on them happy pills Xanax , Prozac ect It’s like they have the total Duhhhh factor going on.
#18 Sep 24, 2012
Hey DUMBASS liberals, be schooled. Indisputable facts, can't be spun.
Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.
The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007... the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.
At that time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
Some people aren't aware of all of this.
Remember the day...January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services
Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee..
The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?
OBAMA and the Democrat Congress
So when someone tries to blame Bush.. REMEMBER JANUARY
3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush, somewhat belatedly, got tough on spending increases.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.
And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill
as President to complete 2009.
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending .
After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself !
In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."
Since: Nov 11
