*The 15 Most Obvious Lies in President Obamaâ€™s Ohio Speech and 1 DamningFreudian Slip *
Posted By *David Swindle* On September 8, 2010
The naked lies were too numerous to count in President Obamaâ€™sspeech in Ohio today. But letâ€™s try and respond to a couple.
*15. â€œWe also hoped for a chance to get beyond some of the political divides between Democrats and Republicansâ€¦â€*
One cannot â€œget beyondâ€ the political divides of this country when the objective is to â€œfundamentally transformâ€ the United States. Obamaâ€™s talk of bi-partisanship has been clearly demonstrated to just be a campaign technique to woo moderates.
He could have ruled from the Center â€” the model was there in Bill Clintonâ€™ssecond term. Instead he chose to push a leftist agenda, thus further exacerbating the divide.
*14. â€œBecause we are proud to be Democrats, we are prouder to be Americans.â€ *
Says the Post-American Presidentwho rejects the concept of American exceptionalism and bows to foreign kings.
*13. â€œI ran for President because for much of the last decade a very specific governing philosophy had reigned about about how American should work.â€*
He expects us to believe that anything President Bush did in any way inspired him to run for President?
*12. â€œFolks were forced to put more debt on their credit cards and to borrow against homes that many couldnâ€™t afford to buy in the first place.â€*
*Forced*? As in Discover Card and American Express put a gun to their customers head and demanded they load themselves up with debt? Monster Housecame by and threatened to devour people if they didnâ€™t sign the mortgage?
*11. â€œI ran for president because I believed that this kind of economy was unsustainable for the middle class and the future of our nation.â€*
Obama is not interested in sustainability. The debt levels we already have and that he is further burdening us with make a mockery of his claims for interest in sustainability.
*10. â€œI ran because I had a different idea about how America was built. It was an idea rooted in my own familyâ€™s story.â€*
*Built?* Obama does not have a different idea about how America was built. The historical facts are quite clear. He has a different idea about the America that *he* wants to build â€” and build by destroying what already exists.
*9. â€œYes, our families believed in the American values of self-reliance and individual responsibility and they instilled those values in their children. But they also believed in a country that rewards responsibility, a country that rewards hard work, a country built on the promise of opportunity and upward mobility.â€*
If Obama was raised with the American value of self-reliance and individual responsibility then why was a communist like Frank Marshall Davisallowed to be one of his mentors?
*8. â€œThe flawed policies and economic weaknesses of the previous decade culminated in a financial crisis and the worst recession of our lifetimes.â€*
This is perhaps the most fundamental, important lie in Obamaâ€™s entire speech: the recession weâ€™re going through right now was caused by Republicansâ€™ economic policies. The truth is far less dramatic: everyone is to blame for the economic recession. â€œBlameâ€ can be pointed toward the Left, the Right, the Democrats, the Republicans, the â€œfat catsâ€ on Wall Street, and the poor people who took out mortgages they could not pay
If everyone is to blame for something then no one is to blame for it. And we can understand this recession as just one more wave in a perpetual cycle of booms and busts .
*7. â€œSome Republicans thought it was smart politics to sit on the sidelines and let Democrats solve the mess. Others believe on principle that government shouldnâ€™t meddle in the markets â€” even when the markets are broken.â€*
No, Republicans thought it would be smart politics to fight Democrats and try to stop them from making the problems we face worse. No, conservatives who believed on principle that government should not interfere in a company failing did not believe the market was broken. A boom and bust business cycle is not an example of the market being â€œbrokenâ€ but of it functioning in the same pattern it has ever since the Roman empire.
Obama â€” and the rest of the Left â€” is unable to actually confront the conservative argument. They always have to lie about their opponentsâ€™ position. Observe how in the fight over the Ground Zero Mosque somehow the debate magically shifted to whether there was a legal right to build a mosque at the location.
*6. â€œThe same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place.â€*
*What* was the philosophy that led us here? Friedman economics? Keynesianism? Obama canâ€™t say because he needs to be as vague as possible in order to try and manipulate the least educated people listening. Thatâ€™s who Obama relies on to develop and maintain power.
*5. â€œTheir argument is should insurance companies go back to denying care for people who are sick or let credit card companies go back to raising rates without any reasonâ€¦ Cleveland, that is not the America I know. That is not the America we believe in.â€*
Insurance companies do not â€œdeny care.â€ They deny paying for some procedures. This is an inevitability of every healthcare system on the planet. If we had the most socialist healthcare system imaginable â€” like Britainâ€™s for example â€” all that would be different is it would be the government being forced to make the decisions to deny paying for something. There is not a health insurance tree in the backyard yielding unlimited insurance fruit for all.
But at least there is a moment of honesty here â€” yes, the America that actually exists today is not something Obama believes in. When he talks of an America he loves he speaks of the country that exists in his imagination â€” one decades down the line that has come into being through his brilliant policies.
*4. â€œItâ€™s still fear versus hope, the past versus the future.â€*
As stated in *The Art of Political War*, â€œfearâ€ and â€œhopeâ€ are just symbols used in political combat. In his previous breath it was Obama himself evoking fear by lying about insurance companies â€œdenyingâ€ people care.
*3. â€œIâ€™ve never believed that itâ€™s governmentâ€™s role to create jobs or prosperity. I believe itâ€™s the drive and ingenuity of our entrepreneurs, small businesses, the skill and dedication of our works thatâ€™s made us the wealthiest nation on earth. â€œ*
You can just feel the disdain in his voice. He can push through government â€œstimulusâ€ programs that cost more than all the money spent on the Iraq warand actually tell us this with a straight face.
*2. â€œI believe itâ€™s the private sector that must be the main engine for our recovery.â€*
If this was the case the he would fuel that engine through slashing taxes across the board.
*1. â€œBut in the words of the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, I also believe that government should do for the people what they cannot do better for themselves.â€*
Yeah, um, letâ€™s read the quote in contextto see what a shameless liar our current president is.
And the *damning* Freudian slip:
*â€œI believe government should be lean, government should be efficient, I believe government should **lead** people free to make the choices that are best for themselves and their families so long as those choices donâ€™t hurt others.â€*
He meant to say government should *leave** people free to make the choices. But **lead** came out instead. Read the prepared remarks here.This is, of course, his embrace of the big government philosophies of his czar Cass Sunstein, co-author of the book **Nudge ** which argues government should push people to make the right choices.*
*This is a President with such disdain for America and its people that he demands he and his elite team **lead** the citizens in making the choices that are best for you.*
*In the words of Kathy Shaidle : â€œYouâ€™re not smart enough to tell me how to live!â€ *
