Deception at Core of Obama Plans

"Forget the pork. Forget the waste. Forget the 8,570 earmarks in a bill supported by a president who poses as the scourge of earmarks. Forget the "$2 trillion dollars in savings" that "we have already identified," $1.6 trillion of which President Obama's budget director later admits is the "savings" of not continuing the surge in Iraq until 2019...Obama's radically transformative economic plan, a rhetorical sleight of hand so smoothly offered that few noticed... "it is only by understanding how we arrived at this moment that we'll be able to lift ourselves out of this predicament," Obama has come to redeem us with his far-seeing program of universal, heavily nationalized health care; a cap-and-trade tax on energy; and a major federalization of education...the list of causes of the collapse of the financial system does not include the absence of universal health care, let alone of computerized medical records. Nor the absence of an industry-killing cap-and-trade carbon levy. Nor the lack of college graduates." [link]

Read enough yet, starting to get the idea...that we are headed down a radical socialist agenda the likes of which it might nearly be impossible to pull out of without major consequences. And quite a few Americans are now starting to see this. For example upon taking office Mr. Obama had an approval rating of 80% give or take a few points. Let's look at some polls now:

Hmmmm around a 20% drop in just six weeks...How about looking at the direction we are headed as a country:

Looks like a quite a few believe we are headed in the wrong direction as well. But do you think Mr. Obama will listen to the ones who are truly supposed to run the country, "WE THE PEOPLE"? Very doubtful. Instead you can almost guarantee he will continue to push his ultra-radical agenda to the detriment of the nation.

Never Waste a Good Crisis...

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience on Friday "never waste a good crisis," as she highlighted the opportunity of rebuilding economies in a greener, less energy intensive model.

Highlighting Europe's unease the day after Russia warned that gas exports to the EU via Ukraine might be halted, she also condemned the use of energy as a political lever." [link]

Now let's stop and think about that bold that enough time for it to sink in that this is exactly what Mr. Obama is doing. Trying to force expensive energy changes down our throats whether we want them or not and saying it is to help the economic crisis. Once again politicians using words and lies for political grandstanding. Throw 'em all out on their useless duffs I say.
