Obama’s Most Audacious
SOTU Lie

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/13/2013 7:00:08 AM

It is difficult to say with certainly which of the many whoppers President Obama told tonight was took the most crust to utter, but my money is going on this assertion, made a few minutes into the speech: “Already, the Affordable Care Act is helping to slow the growth of health care costs.” I know “Orwellian” has now become rather hackneyed, but there is simply no other adjective that better describes this statement. It is not merely a lie. It is the precise opposite of the truth. It is just as absurd as “war is peace” or “freedom is slavery.”

You´d need a vocal chord transplant if you hollered "YOU LIE" after all the Obama assertions. All obamcare has done so far is waste billions on the bureaucratic set ups i greedy blue states. Money that could have been used to give low income people a vouchers to buy private insurance or set them up with a MSA.

My democrat friends are just coming to realize that they too are going to get the Obamacare shaft. I take very little pleasure in saying to them "I told you so!". Well, maybe just a little since I´ve been telling them for 4 years what it means when government takes over an industry.

And why is anyone surprised? Lying is what he does. It´s what all pro-regressives do. We bad, they good. Social justice for all (but us - and they will decide that).

It was too soon after the election for me to watch this lie-fest accompanied by the usual exaggerated cheering section by the idiots on the left. I tried the ´This man is lying´ note taped to the screen, sound muted, CC on, but I couldn´t do even that. Monday night´s DVR´d The Following was much more fun.

His speeches are always all the same - lies, big promises, progressive wet dreams. Until he´s gone. And the untangling can begin. Everything about this administration, the past 4 years, the next 4 years, everyone involved..... it´s ALL Orwellian.

Counting Fauxbama´s lies would be like cleansing the Augean stables with a toothbrush. Regardless of the lies, the sheeple will applaud because they don´t care what he says; they only care whether or not it sounds plausible and gives them something for free.

Axiom: If you believe the exact opposite of what Obama says you will be correct 95% of the time. The other 5% is for utterances like "Good Morning" and "Sit Down". In those cases he is sometimes sincere.

Assume that Obama actually believes what he says. That would make it much harder to call him "brilliant."

Many of us now see him as a human version of junk mail.

I found myself screening at the set when he the poor voters who had passed up early voting, absentee voting, and vote by mail, only to suffer long lines. And Obama would fix that. But absentee ballots are always mailed late by many states, mishandled by the military, in some cases lost in air crashes, and nary a word about their being disenfranchised by his administration. He values the military but cuts their health coverage, pensions, and absolutely tries to ensure their votes don´t count.

I must be honest and admit I could not suffer through one word that came out of Obama´s mouth last night. I am barely able to read articles about it without developing a severe eye twitch. I knew that haughty lies would tumble from his lips to cheering sycophants drunk on progressive power. I couldn´t take the media tongue bath either. So here I sit this morning more frightened than I have ever been in my life for the country I love. Each of you should be very fearful too since Obama has gotten away with every egregious act that would take down any other President. The perfect storm has hit, a radical President, a media who worships him, and a weak and fractured opposition. God help is. This man truly means to so weaken this nation both financially and militarily that we will be easy pickings for our enemies.

So glad to see Mr. Catron mentioned Dietrich Bonhoeffer in this quote: Unlike today’s progressive poseurs, he spoke truth to power when it cost something. While sitting in a cell, awaiting death for that crime....

However, Bonhoeffer was not in prison because "he spoke truth to power". Bonhoeffer, along with many German military officers and other German leaders of the day, were imprisoned because they had attempted to kill Hitler in a plan called "Operation Valkyrie".

We should be reminded how gruesomely these "conspirators" were executed. They were hanged with piano wire on meat hooks. Their hanging was filmed in order to show the military command what awaits them if they try something like that again.

None-the-less, the rest of Catron´s Bonhoeffer quote is just as relevant now as during WWII: “For evil to appear disguised as light, charity, historical necessity, or social justice is quite bewildering to anyone brought up on our traditional ethical concepts.”

While the situation in our country certainly doesn´t come close to Nazi Germany, but like
Catron says: No, I’m not comparing Obama to Hitler. But I am saying that the never-ending stream of prevarication that emanates from the White House and its media toadies is indeed bewildering to anyone who tries to live honestly. And most of the propaganda is specifically designed to camouflage crimes against democracy like Obamacare.

When 0bama said the Affordable Healthcare act was lowering healthcare costs, I tuned him out. My insurance has gone up 300% in the last three years. You can see most companies are going to opt out of insurance and send their employees packing to 0bama´s "Exchanges" which is what 0bama´s grand plan was in the first place. Put all the people in a single payer system, however, you must remember that he and his family will be covered by a gold plated health insurance and not have to suffer the long lines and shortages for healthcare. Wake up America.

Forget the price of healthcare...has anyone seen the prices of everything else? Food is 3-5 times more expensive than it was a couple years ago. Gasoline is over 2x more expensive. The cost of living is skyrocketing while jobs are almost non-existent, nobody (except the fat cats and the elite government types) is getting raises nor have they been for years. I feel like it is the Weimar Republic again with hyperinflation. Why aren´t the people who are dependent on government benes crying about not being able to buy as much? I know they haven´t had many (if any) increases in their "income". Even they should be screaming about the state of our union.

What I don´t understand are those idiots you see who post on a lot of articles who say that the economy is getting better and that we are all better off under Obama. These idiots who think that everything is wonderful now and that anything that goes against their belief system is evil. if you ask me, they are the evil ones.

Have you heard the news? Condoleezza Rice lacks “moral authority.” She fails to meet the standards of “exemplary citizenship” and she does not have what it takes to “inspire” graduating college seniors. That crazy thinking comes from the New Brunswick Faculty Council of Rutgers University. They voted last week to ask university leadership to cancel Rice’s invitation to be this year’s Commencement Speaker and receive an honorary degree.Yes, apparently the first African-American woman to serve as National Security Adviser and the nation’s Secretary of State doesn’t have what it takes to be honored by Rutgers.

Is the CNN series "Chicagoland" a compelling look at this town? Yes. I was given an advance look at the first four episodes of the eight-part series that premiered Thursday night. It shows the real Chicago, not some fantasy Chicago, not the sanitized postcard downtown, that theme-park-of-a-city that the Daleys pushed out to national audiences through their media contacts for years. "Chicagoland" depicts the city we know, beautiful but with warts and broken places. And throughout, there is drama and conflict, from the painful closing of public schools to the senseless gang wars. There are heroes in it and there

House of Cards, the Netflix series about a lethally unscrupulous Washington politician, is a wonderful show, but it does sometimes stretch the limits of credulity. I have no trouble believing that a Democratic congressman would push a reporter in front of a train, but the idea that anyone in the press would try to expose him for it is flat-out ridiculous. After all, Barack Obama has been pushing reporters under the bus for six years and nobody’s said a word. Ah, well. If the show gives leftist politicos nightmares about being held accountable for their actions by American journalists, they

Last spring, a 48-year-old mother of two young girls in Colorado discovered that she had colon cancer. Her surgeon and oncologist disagreed about whether she needed chemotherapy. So a friend recommended she go to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston for a second opinion. Just before she booked her plane ticket, a representative from MD Anderson called, informing her that its oncologists were outside her insurance company’s network and that she should bring $10,000 for the consultation. Many Americans can relate to this. Last year, a Kaiser survey reported that almost all individuals and families with employer-sponsored health insurance have

Democrats have adopted a dismissive, almost bemused posture when it comes to the conservative fixation with the 2012 attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, confident in the knowledge that the facts bear little resemblance to what they see as the right´s conspiracy theories. On one hand, they´re right. Countless congressional committee reports, administration probes, and journalistic investigations have cleared then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing, and found there was little else the Obama administration could have done once the attacks began. "Ghazi" has become shorthand for a partisan-driven scandal. But Democrats are in denial if they think Benghazi

President Obama, like Jimmy Carter before him, is finally getting a late education in how the world works. It’s not how he wants it to be. The world is a dangerous place, where history and greed trump good intentions. Words are cheap. Red lines and vague warnings to bad actors mean little to men who scheme for power, strategic advantage and territory. Vladimir Putin, communist or not, is one tough Russian. He wants to maximize his nation’s prestige, power and interests and appears to be doing well at it. Barack Obama and his feckless secretary of state were all that was standing in

An earthquake hit Colorado politics on Wednesday afternoon, and the tremors are being felt in Washington, D.C. Rep. Cory Gardner, a second-term Republican from the small town of Yuma on Colorado’s eastern plains, announced (or at least it was reported that he was about to announce) his intention to seek the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Udall rather than seek an essentially certain re-election. Gardner’s move puts Udall, already struggling against barely-known Republicans, in a position where the next polls will likely show him losing his seat to the quarter-century-younger Gardner.

The many jaundiced assessments of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on the fifth anniversary of its enactment were understandable, given that the sluggish recovery, now drowsing through the second half of its fifth year, is historically anemic. Still, bleak judgments about the stimulus spending miss the main point of it, which was to funnel a substantial share of its money to unionized, dues-paying, Democratic-voting government employees. Hence the stimulus succeeded. So there. This illustrates why it is so sublime to be a liberal nowadays. Viewed through the proper prism, most liberal policies succeed because they can hardly fail.

Republicans are in a stronger position than Democrats for this year’s midterm elections, benefiting from the support of self-described independents, even though the party itself is deeply divided and most Americans agree more with Democratic policy positions, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows. The independents in the poll — a majority of whom were white or male or under age 45 — continued to sour on President Obama’s job performance. Republicans hold their edge despite the fissures in their party over whether it is too conservative or not conservative enough, and many are discouraged about the party’s future.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying.

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide.
