The Obama Report Card

So, how has Obama chosen to lead over his first 30 or so days in office?

Let’s see:

  • US money for overseas abortion? Check.
  • $900 Million to aid the Gaza strip in rebuilding after the “Israeli aggression”? Check
  • Plans to drop the US missile shield in the Chech Republic and Poland in hopes that Russia will help deter Iran from building a nuke? (‘Cause we all know we can trust the Russians) Check
  • $787 billion spending bill which no elected official had time to read? Check
  • $75 billion mortgage bailout to help people who can’t afford mortgages they should not have been allowed to have in the first place? Check
  • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac get $200 billion more each to mismanage their affairs? Check
  • 19,000 more troops sent to Afghanistan with no explainable mission statement? Check
  • $410 billion omnibus spending bill which is entirely made up of pork-laden earmarks and pet projects as pay-off to crooked lawmakers? Check
  • The Dow is down almost 2500 points since Obama’s election? Check
  • Consumer confidence at an all-time low (It’s at 25. A year ago it was in the high 70s)? Check
  • $2 trillion in more spending for Timothy Geithner’s “Financial Stability Plan”. Check
  • Money we actually have to spend for all of these bailouts? Zero
  • Screwing America’s future? Check
  • Feeling hopeless from all the change? Check

Obama, “Spread the wealth around” equals socialist income redistribution.

Power Line – Spread your own wealth around

When Barack Obama responded to the Ohio plumber who didn’t want his taxes raised that Obama wanted to “spread the wealth around,” I wanted to tell him to spread his own wealth around. It was in any event a rare moment of candor on the part of Senator Obama.

Obama all but told the plumber that his wealth should be seized in the name of equity. The encounter played out one of the old themes of democratic politics: the appeal to the many to take from the few. It’s traditionally an easy sell in democratic regimes.

Despite Obama’s implication to the contrary, however, It doesn’t represent much in the way of change. According to the most recent (2006) data released by the IRS, the top 1 percent of filers paid nearly 40 percent of all income taxes; the top 5 percent paid 60 percent of all income taxes. The bottom 50 percent paid virtually no income taxes (3 percent of all income taxes paid).

The personal income tax, the federal government’s main source of revenue, is collected overwhelmingly from a relative handful of Americans. The large majority of all Americans pay little or no income tax.

CNN lies about the Obama – Ayers ties…

A Blog For All: CNN: Obama Lies About Ayers Ties

You read that headline right. CNN actually catches Sen. Barack Obama
lying about his relationship with the terrorist Bill Ayers. It doesn’t
matter that Ayers carried out his terrorism 20 years ago, he’s still a
terrorist, and has never been held accountable for his actions. Obama
knew, or had reason to know about Ayers radical leftist positions, and
intent to bring about revolution, and yet chose to continue to have a
relationship with Ayers.

H/T Lawhawk!

Barney Frank sleeping with Fannie Mae exec.

FOXNews.com – Lawmaker Accused of Fannie Mae Conflict of Interest – Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

This is just rich…
Barney Frank and his lover are truly at the root of this financial mess.

Turns out that Frank was in a position (no pun intended) to influence Fannie Mae, because he was sleeping with one of the executives! And this guy has the audacity to blame everyone else for this problem!!!

Frank needs to be in jail.

C’mon, he writes housing and banking laws and his boyfriend is a
top exec at a firm that stands to gain from those laws?” the aide told
FOX News. “No media ever takes note? Imagine what would happen if
Frank’s political affiliation was R instead of D? Imagine what
the media would say if [GOP former] Chairman [Mike] Oxley’s wife
or [GOP presidential nominee John] McCain’s wife was a top exec
at Fannie for a decade while they wrote the nation’s housing and
banking laws.”

Frank is one of the most arrogant criminals that we have in DC. This is a bum that really needs to be thrown out.

Trust us! We’re from the government.

Do I really have to say anything?

This is no joke.

Think its a joke? Don’t.

This is not intended to be a judgment about the presidential race either way. It is however an intent of hope, that will cause some people to stop and take notice, and make a judgment about the associations that Obama has made.

Obama is truly an example of a criminal politician.
– He has masked his intentions totally. He say’s that he’s not an ordinary politician, that he is one of “change” and “hope” (CHOPE for short). Yet he’s the most party line voter out there. How is that CHOPE? It isn’t. You really need to take notice when the person totally misrepresents what he says he stands for.

– Look at his associations:Ayers, Rezko, Wright, various communists and jihadist sympathizers. And thats the short list.

This guy couldn’t get a security clearance if he were in the military. Yet some are considering acceptable as the commander in chief of our country’s military. He is not fit to lead in any way, shape or form.

So the bailout bill has passed. Look what the criminals added…

As expected, the bail out bill has passed.

The striking thing however is that, in this time of crisis, these criminals in congress have managed to grow the bill from its initial form by nearly 15,000%!!! Seriously! The went from a three page bill to a 451 page bill!!!! We are told that we are on the verge of a depression and these criminals are finding a way to repeal a 39 cent excise tax on wooden childrens arrows??? We have a crisis, and this is what these scumbags do?

It is TIME TO THROW THE BUMS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WSJ Bailout Plan New Life article

UPDATE:

This just keeps getting better and better… If you thought you were already screwed by this, you’ll love this. And if you thought that this was a good idea, hopefully this will open your eyes and make you realize that you helped enable Pandora’s box of screw jobs.

Check this out… This criminal new this before the bill passed, but he is just now letting the cat out of the bag. Now you’ll understand why this was shoved down our throats.

“”Hundreds of billions of dollars are going to bail out FOREIGN INVESTORS. They know it, they demanded it, and the bill has been carefully written to make sure that can happen.” – Brad Sherman , D-California”

That’s right folks. You are going to have $700 billion – about 25% of the total federal budget – put on your personal credit card (via taxes forever) in order to bail out foreign investors. You getting that???

But wait! There’s more!

Oh, and the best part of it is that the underlying assets involved do not even have to be in the United States!

Here is the definition of a “troubled asset”, right from the bill:

“(9) TROUBLED ASSETS.—The term ‘‘troubled assets’’ means— (A) residential or commercial mortgages and any securities, obligations, or other instruments that are based on or related to such mortgages, that in each case was originated or issued on or before March 14, 2008, the purchase of which the Secretary determines promotes financial market stability;

and (B) any other financial instrument that the Secretary, after consultation with the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, determines the purchase of which is necessary to promote financial market stability, but only upon transmittal of such determination, in writing, to the appropriate committees of Congress.”

Notice that conspicuously missing from the definition is the requirement that the asset’s underlying thing (that is, the property that was mortgaged, etc) lies within the United States. Also note that Treasury must tell Congress if they add “new types” of debt, but that Congress has no right of review or censure.

Starting to feel that burning sensation yet?

No? How about this?

YOU WILL WIND UP EATING $700 BILLION OR MORE – THIS IS A REVOLVING CREDIT LINE, NOT A MAXIMUM AMOUNT – OF FOREIGN BAD DEBT FROM THE CHINESE AND ELSEWHERE.

THAT’S RIGHT – THE PURPOSE OF THIS BILL IS TO SCREW YOU, THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER, BY OFFLOADING ALL OF THE TROUBLED DEBT AROUND THE WORLD ONTO YOUR HEADS!

How do you feel now? All of those payoffs that these criminal in Washington have been living off of are being paid back. This mixed economy that we have allowed to fester is now about to bite us in the collective ass. And these criminals in Washington just gave us the big finger up the backside, with no warning or lube.

If you are for this, congratulations, you’ve just screwed us, and your future generations.
