Obama the Deceiver

As I read yet again of Obama’s minions going door-to-door at the behest of Obama aides now working for the Democratic National Committee to press for passage of a spendthrift budget with trillion-dollar deficits, I note how this budget does not meet up with the fiscal responsibility the candidate preached in his campaign. As he himself said in the third presidential debate “what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut.

That’s right he said that throughout this campaign, he proposed a net spending cut. Now, some of his supporters might say, well, he didn’t realize how bad the economic situation was. Um, he repeated that message of fiscal responsibility after the election, promising to “scour the federal budget, line by line, and make meaningful cuts.

And just after pushing through the spendthrift “stimulus,” he hosted a Fiscal Responsibility Summit at the White House.

He has been praised for his gift of rhetoric, that he, with a good speech in front of him, is a master of the spoken word.  Alas, that he uses those words to deceive.

UPDATE:  An illustration of Obama’s deception.  Here’s what one of his prominent supporters had to say recently:

In the midst of this bonfire of inanities, President Obama is pressing ahead with a $3.6 trillion budget, predicated on utterly unrealistic economic growth, even as the Congressional Budget Office is now projecting that this year’s deficit will soar past $1.8 trillion, 13 percent of the US economy. . . President Obama came to office proclaiming that he aims to solve problems, not hand them on to our children. Most presidents say that sort of thing. But now we are in very dire straits, and that being the case, he will be held to account. It’s your legacy, sir, and let’s not hear any more about ‘inheriting the crisis.

  1. Obama’s agenda all along was far-left: Spread easy government money to his friends, loot the producers, wreck what’s left of American capitalism after Bush-Paulson, create more and more excuses for more and more government takeovers, socialize America so that it’s no better than a European country.

    Some of us saw that. Others didn’t.

  2. [...] 2008, Obama promised a “net spending cut” (although he never did come up with cuts to offset his proposed spending increases). Obama broke this campaign promise in a big way with his [...]

  3. The only time The Snob told the truth on the campaign was when he told Joe the Plumber how he was going to redistribute wealth. And then the DNC MSM went on the attack – against Joe.

    Scribes, Pharisees and hypocrites all.

  6. #5 – Bruce, as I stated in another thread, if any Obamabots show up at my front door uninvited and won’t go away, they’ll get a buckshot enema.

  7. Peter contends: “if any Obamabots show up at my front door uninvited and won’t go away, they’ll get a buckshot enema.”

    Ouch. And I thought fisting was a rough kind of play. You boys from Texas are a tough lot.

  8. #7 – “You boys from Texas are a tough lot.”

    Don’t mess with Texans, MM. ;-)

    And as you know, according to The Snob, we’re bitter people who cling to our guns and religion.

    Or as a famous Texan once said, “Believe in God but keep your powder dry.”

  9. Obama delivered on his net spending cut. I doubt you could find an earmark or a line item appropriation for funding fishing nets or sports nets or butterfly nets. Hence you owe Mr. Obama an apology (or maybe to his Teleprompter-
    OPTUS=Official Presidential Teleprompter United States).

  10. Better a “snob” than the trailer trash that showed up time and time again at the McCain/Palin rallies.

  11. #10 – Keith, through your statement you are a considered a bigot and a heterophobe to us. Enough said.

  12. Um, Keith, want to address the point of the post? Looks like you just pulled a “Barney Frank” and insulting your adversaries instead.

  13. #12 – Don’t waste your breath, Dan. He’s probably just another Drive-By Troll trying to incite the masses.

  14. Incidentally, unlike other members of the vast-right-wing-conspiracy, I do not consider The Snob to be the Anti-Christ.

    I mean come on, you would think the Anti-Christ would be smarter than this guy. ;-)
