Liberty and Respect

'Respecting others means honoring their right to pursue their ambitions, within the framework of the laws that guarantee our individual rights.

[EXPLAINING WHY PEOPLE BUY INTO OBAMA'S CLASS WARFARE RHETORIC:]
IT’S SHOCKING HOW MANY AMERICANS HAVE BECOME CASUALLY WILLING TO ACCEPT GOVERNMENT AS THE ARBITER OF AMBITION, DECIDING THAT THIS PERSON “DESERVES” SOMETHING, WHILE THAT PERSON IS SELFISH AND GREEDY, WHEN NO ONE INVOLVED HAS BROKEN ANY LAWS.

It is dismaying to watch so many of us transfer the full measure of our respect and trust to the State… which has proven quite willing to defraud, loot, and abuse us, on a scale that no private entity could envision.

No one deserves respect who will not grant it. No one is free who judges others unworthy of liberty. GREAT IDEAS ARE SOLD, NOT IMPOSED.'

The above does not fit with Obama's vision of America becoming another mediocre Eurostate with cradle to grave government welfare.

The White House cannot run on their record, so they are lying about Romney.

This is so transparent.

Obama is going to lose.

If Obama, Reid & the Democrats lie so much during this campaign, what else do they lie to us about?

Everyone now knows what liars Obama & the Democrats are.

Team Obama returned to its Chicago roots this week with a Super PAC ad that virtually accuses Mitt Romney of murder.
Just when you thought the mudslinging couldn’t get worse ...
The star of the ad is Joe Soptic, who lost his job in 2001 when the Romney-founded firm Bain Capital shuttered the GST Steel plant in Kansas City, Mo.
“When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care,” Soptic says in the ad.“And a short time after that, my wife became ill” and couldn’t afford treatment.“She passed away in 22 days.”
Pity is due Soptic for his loss, but the ad is pure fiction. And Team Obama knows it.
AP
Mitt Romney
Here’s a timeline of what really happened:
* Bain Capital buys the GST mill in 1993.
* Romney leaves Bain in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympics.
* Bain closes the mill in 2001.
* Joe Soptic loses his job, but his wife Renae retains her own health insurance through her job at Savers Thrift Store.
* In 2002, after sustaining an injury, Renae loses her job and her insurance.
* In 2006, a full five years after the steel plant closed, Renae is diagnosed with cancer and passes away soon after.
The ad hides all that — and essentially paints Romney as a cold-blooded killer.
Now, Obama & Co. have tried to distance themselves from the ad, saying it’s “by an entity ... not controlled by the campaign.”
But they won’t denounce it. Their campaign has featured Soptic in at least three other promos. And Obama backers are urged to donate to the PAC.
Spin and manipulation, of course, are standard procedure in electoral bouts.
But you’ve got to wonder: Is nothing too sleazy for Team Obama?

Obama distortions are nothing new, and if the media bothered to vet him just thru his autobiographies alone, well...maybe he wouldn't be president today.

Yes, Obama’s Bio Lies Constitute a Pattern

Never let it be said the New York Times is afraid to tackle an unflattering story about President Obama, even if it’s often a delayed reaction. The paper’s political blog noticed today that the new biography of the president by David Maraniss uncovered the fact that much of Dreams From My Father, the highly praised Barack Obama autobiography, is either FABRICATED OR EXAGGERATED.

The Times’s Michael Shear opines that having its author now sitting in the White House has brought Dreams more scrutiny than its author could have envisioned when he wrote it in 1995. But the problem with contemporary analyses of the questionable personal history in the book is not so much the peril associated with being a famous political author but whether THE BOOK PROVIDES PROOF OF A PATTERN OF FALSEHOODS AND DISTORTIONS ABOUT HIS PAST THAT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE PRESIDENT’S PUBLIC CAREER.

… the unwillingness of the Times and other mainstream publications to call out Obama for writing fiction and calling it autobiography gives us a good indication of how much of an advantage having a quiescent media is for an incumbent president.

The FABLES OBAMA SEEMS TO HAVE TOLD about his alienation, his girlfriends and the rest of his over-intellectualized voyage of self-discovery actually pale in comparison to the whopper he told when running for election in 2008 that his mother died because she had been denied coverage and treatment of her disease. Scott revealed that in fact the expenses relating to her cancer had been paid by her insurance. Though she had a separate and totally unrelated dispute relating to disability coverage, Scott’s research proved that Obama’s statement during the 2008 presidential debate was fiction:

“For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they’re saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.”

It bears repeating that THE PRESIDENT KNEW THIS ACCOUNT WAS FALSE because he served as his mother’s attorney in all her dealings with the insurance company.

When the Times ran that story (on page 14 rather than on the front page), the White House chose not to deny the truth of Scott’s reporting. But that didn’t stop the Obama campaign from refloating the same falsehoods about Ms. Dunham having perished for lack of insurance coverage in an autobiographical campaign film narrated by Tom Hanks.

Not only has THE PRESIDENT NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT HIS MOTHER’S PLIGHT, HE RIGHTLY ASSUMED THAT even though the truth was uncovered by the New York Times, NEITHER THAT PAPER NOR THE REST OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WOULD FOLLOW UP ON It as they undoubtedly would had a Republican ever tried to sell the voters such a transparent whopper.

the person who took over from Romney when he left Bain in 1999, was top Obama fundraiser Jonathan Lavine, and he was the managing director at the time GST Steel was closed down! Lavine still has close ties with Obama. also where is his college records we know more about romney than we know about the potus, on thing we have seen so far is his decptions and LIES ballfaced

It doesn't even begin to approach the distastefulness found in the PAC ads during the Bush era.
