READ BETWEEN THE LINES: What Obama was really saying at the 2012 White House Correspondents Dinner.


What was once considered a great way to promote journalism education, the 2012 White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) was turned into a joke on everyone, including Obama himself.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Introduction 

Jimmy Kimmel leaped to the stage  like  a joker juggling balls of fire and launching them at people in the audience for 24 long minutes.

Anybody who was anybody was knocked down in a form of deprecating humor, including Obama himself with Kimmel greeting Obama with “Shalom”  and continuing throughout his speech throwing one liners at Obama while encouraging him to legalize marijuana and urging people to not engage in a nuclear war with Iran and demoralizing Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netaynuhu.

In mostly bad humor, Jimmy Kimmel had a few good ones liners against Obama.  “Remember, when the Country rallied around in the hopes of a better tomorrow, that was hilarious. That was your best one yet.”  With Obama shaking his head up and down while mouthing the words, “I know.”  and ” There’s a term for someone like Barrack Obama, not 2 terms but…’  as well as his only insightful comment of the night where he states that America “use to march but now we occupy.”

Hot Mic Alert

During a slight pause in the momentum of the evening, Jay Carney (Obama’s Press Secretary) rushes up to the stage and speaks into the microphone asking for Obama’s microphone to be turned off because it was “hot” (aka live).

Another  momentary pause.  Obama recently had a hot mic on him when he spoke with the Russians saying that he needs more time to succumb to their demands since it is election season.

Obviously, that was an attempt to make a difficult situation during election season into a joke.  As the old saying goes, when in times of deflecting, laugh and point fingers. Obama does both exceptionally well.

“Nobody would notice.’ 

Tonight was no exception. Obama’s voice booms into the room before his physical arrival, singing off key and slamming celebrities attending the event with a dose of humility by bashing himself on his grayed hair with an alarming statement,  “Right now, Im like a 5 on a Just for Mens scale. I think I could go to 6 and nobody would notice.”

Oddly, this is a view that many people feel Obama acts on a Presidential day to day basis with concern to domestic and foreign affairs. Case in point- Obama’s Unconstitutional invasion into Libya without Congressional approval and violating the Wars Powers Act or slipping a government mandated health insurance clause in a 2000+ bill of Obamacare.

Obama’s jokes about his public perception.

After Obama finished making fun of himself (which, come to find out will be much needed as a forerunner to his speech)- he walks onto an American flag-less stage and proceeds to be 2 faced. Literally.  He openly and warmly greets the same people that, two minutes, he called out.   Almost everyone laughs, as if it is hilarious.

Obama then launches into the concerns with his public image and instead of correcting or even justifying his behavior, he openly mocks the concerns by “reintroducing himself to the American People” by playing upon his poor approval rating  and public perception.

Obama jokingly comments that people blame him for blaming too many of his problems on Former President Bush and then, in the next sentence, blames Former President Bush for initiating the slippery slope of blame.

The entire speech was a series of deliberate mixed matches in speech in a more than obvious display of showmanship and acting ability.

Obama’s ‘reintroducing’ himself to the White House correspondents (journalists). 

While Obama  was ‘reintroducing himself’ in attempts to erase a negative image with his Presidency, Obama forcefully yet flippantly claims that his mother was born in Kansas, his father was born in Kenya and that he was born in Hawaii.  Obama’s deceptive smile while speaking and literal wink– left most of the audience laughing as if Obama was a stand up comedian in a past life.

Of course, people stop finding the humor in things when it looks like they are being ganged up on so, eventually, Obama turned the knife on himself and showed pictures of himself 4 years ago with a winning smile and a halo angelic effect and then 4 years later as a gray hair ridden downcast man (in attempts at a sympathy vote) and then in another 4 years, his looks were compared to the actor,Morgan Freeman. Which, again, resulted in laughter.

Obama jokes about the excessive and needless spending of the GSA.

Then, Obama jokes that he is a glad that the WHCD was not ran by the GSA (General Services Administrators) who was known for a lavish $830,000 price tag billed at the taxpayers expense.  Wasteful spending is not a joke and is part of the reason why our Country is in the serious financial difficulties that we are currently facing.

Backhanded compliments 

Obama had a way of giving out backhanded compliments, showing his ability to twist words into genuine and warm sounding compliments.  For example, congratulating the Huffington Post for winning the Pulitzer…. for not having authentic news,  linking to other websites and having a ‘great’ business model.

Obama admits to eating dog meat

Then, in an incredibly grotesque response that even left Michelle Obama looking incredulous, Obama slams Sarah Palin asking “Whats the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?” with the answer being, “that pit bulls taste delicious.. with a little soy sauce” which was an obvious attempt at humor at the admittance of Obama eating dog meat in the wilderness in attempts to take on the characteristics of the poor, forsaken dog, in Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father”.

Then in a sense at another attempt at humor on a sickening subject of Obama eating the dog with his father and in attempts to laugh at himself (thus validating, all rumors that he really did eat a dog), Obama declares, “my step father always told me that it was a boy eat dog world out there!”

It wasn’t funny the first time and its definitely not funny the second time. Where is PETA’s outcry in this horrendous act of animal cruelty?

A dash of class warfare to add to the mix 

An Obama speech wouldn’t be complete without a dash of class warfare. Obama further cements Romney’s perception as a 1% thus engaging Obama in his class warfare tactics by mentioning that Romney would have bought the hotel where the dinner was being held as a ‘fixer upper’, then again when saying that due to Romney having 2 degrees from Harvard, he is classified a ‘snob’ and then again, when Obama stated that Romney went to see the newly released movie, the Hunger Games (where people brutally attack each other for corporate sponsorship) in to which Obama commented sarcastically, “I bet this was a change of pace for him” and that “I didnt see it, there was not enough class warfare (in it) for me.”

Which again, resulted in everybody rip roaring Obama-is-so-funny laughter that would pierce your heart if you heard it first hand.

Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Afterward, Obama mock defended himself against a  false ‘Woof PAC’,  attacking Obama for mandating a dogs right to ride on the roof of  a car,  the ‘European dog socialism’, more government handouts, more government dependency, indoctrinating our children and the left wing social agenda::: all major concerns of the American People, Obama is laughing it off with a wave of his hands, a winning smile and a wink in the eye.

Literally. Obama was winking so much at the WHCD that you would think his contact lens was dry.  Obama’s leering smile and glimmer of mischief in his eye while he tells the American People exactly what he is going to do with his 2nd term while making it sound like a joke so that the White House Correspondents know how to spin it for Obama was sickening and an obvious front on the intelligence of American People.

Obama’s admittance of a “secret agenda” during his last term in office.

Laughingly, Obama states that the Republicans think that he is going to “unleash some secret agenda for the next 4 years” in to which he leans into the microphone and says very deeply, almost demonically, “you’re absolutely right” which resulted in more laughter from the audience. How is this funny? Isn’t anybody concerned with Obama’s admittance that he has a secret agenda? Remember, behind every joke there is at least an ounce in Truth.

Then Obama jokes that with his first term, he finished the war on Iraq and with his 2nd term, his war will be on Christmas.  Is there anybody taking Obama on a literal basis or are they charmed like a snake in a basket?

Hook, line and sinker.  

Will the people see through the fog and realize that Obama just admitted what his radical tendencies will look like in a 2nd term or will they take the bait- hook, line and sinker?

With all these jokes being flung about as if we were in a comedy club, one begs the question to be asked- “who is really the punchline?”

Watch the 2012 White House Correspondence Dinner and comment below as to your thoughts!

Best idea yet! Newt Gingrich implements his own “Lean Six Sigma”, scales back 1/3 of employees.

Have you ever had to jump over a hurdle?  Have you ever jumped over a hurdle with 100 pound weights? Which jump was easier?

That is the current modus operandi of Newt Gingrich’s campaign as he implements his own ‘Lean Six Sigma’ project and, as a result, scales back 1/3 of his staffers over the last week.

Lean Six Sigma is a  managerial concept of Lean and Six Sigma that results in the elimination of the 7 kinds of wastes (Defects, Overproduction, Transportation, Waiting, Inventory, Motion/Redundancy and Overprocessing) within goods and service at a rate of 3.4 defects per million opportunities.

Anybody familiar with Six Sigma, can vouch for it’s effectiveness.   Newt’s campaign team will now be leaner, stronger and more efficient than before as those 100 lbs weights were prohibiting him from jumping the hurdle.   Only the exceptional remain. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

While there is the downfall of working with less, that’s not entirely a new concept to Gingrich’s campaign as his campaign has utilized fiscal responsibility in deciding to run a bare bones campaign and focus on big ideas.   While money is an issue as it is in every campaign- Gingrich’s campaign is equipped with creative thinkers who can use a little but get a lot in return. Look at South Carolina, North Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

What Gingrich lacks in money, he makes up for with creative thinking within his staff and hardcore dedication and support from his volunteers with many volunteers stepping up to do what the old staffers did- without pay. Many state that they are willing to volunteer because Newt is the “only experienced, conservative Choice” and that “it’s not about personal reward- it’s about doing what’s best for America”.

While political pundits are spinning one way, the reality- once again- is entirely different.  All terminations are unpleasant and unemployment is unfavorable but when you need the best, sometimes the rest have to fall away so you can rebuild your base to be more efficient and productive. That is exactly what Newt Gingrich is doing and this reorganization will propel Newt to the top of the pack by the Tampa Convention this August.

Newt Gingrich- Strong and unwavering; marches towards the GOP Convention.

Newt on the taunting media and opponents 

As much as the establishment and opposing candidates are pushing for Newt to drop out and are determined to convince the People that Newt should quit, Newt remains absolute and is full throttle ahead to the Tampa, FL Convention.

When he was asked on CBS’s This Morning “under what circumstances” he would end his campaign before the convention, Gingrich responded: “Probably none.  I’ll be with you in Tampa. I have 176,000 donors at They want me to stay in the race.”

Later on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, Gingrich said voters in Illinois were telling him to stay in the race. “I think the people who are supporting me want to have sort of a Reagan-like visionary, a big ideas candidate,” he said.

But it’s not just Illinois, every state Newt stops at- he gets highly charged responses from people pleading with him to stay in the race.

Clear, Consistent, Conservative Choice

Denise Haywald, a Florida resident, agrees enthusiastically and explains why she is still involved in Newt’s campaign even though the Florida primary was  Jan 31, 2012.

“Newt is the clear, consistent, conservative choice. We need a strong conservative to balance out Obama’s socialistic spiral. In a time of economic peril, we cannot afford any more on the job training.  Newt is the only candidate who understands the nuts and bolts of the details of the Presidency and who has experience balancing the national budget for 4 straight years and bringing true entitlement reform.  The main objective is to beat Obama and Newt is, by far, the best debater, has the most  experience and the firmest backbone and voice needed to debate Obama.   Besides, Newt is the only candidate who has put Obama on the defensive and that position is long overdue.  No dispute, I stand with Newt!”

When will the media vet Santorum? 

When vetted to the same extent as Newt; the voters will see a number of concerning things (Discussed here: and here:  and his problem with women voters ( that will make them rethink their reasons for siding with Santorum (especially since he is NOT the Anti-Romney candidate as he endorsed Mitt Romney and his ideas  in 2008: and fall back on Newts’ experience in getting Conservative legislation passed. (A quality currently lacking in Congress).

Santorum himself and Democrats for Santorum are encouraging Democrats to vote for Santorum in the Open Primary States. 

Then there’s the whole issue of Santorum inviting Democrats via robocalls in Michigan and Ohio into the Republican Primary to vote for him knowing full well that they will vote for Obama in the general election.

In addition, there is also a campaign dubbed, ‘Operation Hilarity’ where Democrats are voting for Santorum in open primary states because they know that Obama will crush Santorum like a tin can in the debates. Watch an ad from ‘Democrats for Santorum”:

United Against Romney

Let’s be real– it would  help Santorum if Newt stayed in the race (which he will despite all the questionable talk) because Romney’s wall street funded Super Pac will have to spend money aggressively, attacking both Newt and Santorum (their current modus operandi)  instead of just barreling Santorum with negative attack ads like Romney did to Newt during the Florida primary, where Romney spent $20 million in false, negative attack ads in efforts to blind the voters and knock Newt off message.

Newt agrees, “My view on that, is that the minute Romney has one opponent his Super PAC will drown that opponent in mud. That’s what happened to me in Iowa and Florida. It will eventually happen to Santorum and I think it is actually to our net advantage to keep Romney divided.”

Romney:  No negative ad is too costly! 

Meanwhile, Romney continues to spend money like he was printing it fresh off the press in attempts to cover his self proclaimed ‘progressive moderate’ record  (watch here: and to mischaracterize Newt with millions of dollars in false and misleading political ads (in in attempts to have people vote for him as the Anti-Newt candidate) which makes one question if Romney would continue Obama’s title as a ‘big spender’.

Newt on why he remains determined and his thoughts on the cancellation of  the Georgia and Oregon Debate.

On a personal belief, Newt feels he has every need to stay in the race.  “There are a lot of things I don’t agree with Romney and Santorum on. I don’t have an obligation to automatically salute as a conservative somebody who is a progressive moderate and somebody who ran up $1.7 trillion in debt. ” says the Former Speaker of the House, “Besides, if all the candidates are afraid to debate me- how can we feel confident that they are capable of debating Obama?” asks Newt referring to the cancellation of the Georgia CNN debate and the recently cancelled Oregon PBS debate.

Just like the Energizer Bunny; Newt keeps going and going and…. 

And so Newt and his campaign marches on, much like President George Washington and his troops on Christmas Day in 1776 (Learn more:  in pursuit of the Truth, Justice and to be a prime example of God’s Grace and Glory.

Time will tell who reigns as the ultimate victor but you can place your bets on Newt being a strong influence at the Tampa, FL Convention.

Congressional Leaders React to Obama’s Jobs Plan

  • Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV): “I have serious questions about the level of spending.”
  • Presidential Contender/Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA): “All the ideas that didn’t work with 850 billion dollars he now wants to try to get it to work with 450 billion. He has zero pay-fors. He’s got to quit being a candidate, and actually be president for awhile.”
  • Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL): “He didn’t tell us where the money is coming from.  Many of these proposals just won’t work.”
  • Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY): “This isn’t a jobs plan. It’s a re-election plan. That’s why Republicans will continue to press for policies to empower job creators, not DC. Obama’s economic policies don’t work. His jobs plan is to try these same policies again, and then accuse anyone who doesn’t support them of being political or overly partisan.”
  • Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX): co-chairman of the “supercommittee” on deficit reduction: “The President wants us to find additional budget savings to pay for his $447 billion jobs plan. By asking the Joint Select Committee to increase the $1.5 trillion target to cover the full cost of his plan, the president is essentially tasking a committee designed to reduce the deficit to pay for yet another round of stimulus.”
  • Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI): Chairman, Ways and Means Committee: “We already have a difficult job trying to reduce the deficit with very little cooperation from the Democrats. Now he has given us a plan that won’t reduce the deficit by one penny. He wants us to spend more money on the same programs which have produced so few jobs.”

Obama pushing to extend payroll holday through 2012 while Social Security account drains.

On Wednesday, President Obama reiterated his push to extend the existing payroll tax holiday through 2012 – a move  objected to by members of his own party who fear the reduction in revenues will undermine Social Security.

“I think that it makes perfect sense for us to take a look at, can we extend the payroll tax, for example, an additional year,” Obama said during a lengthy press conference at the White House.

On Friday, Democratic Reps. Lloyd Doggett (Texas), Ted Deutch (Fla.) and Mark Critz (Pa.) sent a letter to all House Democrats saying the proposed extension “should trouble all who care about preserving” the funding stream for Social Security.

“Social Security’s popularity comes from the direct contributions of American workers, who pay into the system now and benefit when they retire or become disabled,” the lawmakers wrote.

“Unless and until faith in Social Security has been restored to the American people through long-range solvency, short-sighted cuts to the program’s revenue stream must not be part of any debt ceiling or budget deal.”

The letter is also being distributed to select House Republicans, Deutch spokeswoman Ashley Mushnick said Wednesday. The Democrats are also readying a similar letter to send to Obama.

While the cut is just 2 percentage points – from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent – it represents a real payroll tax reduction of 32 percent.

For instance, a worker currently earning $100,000 should have paid $6,200 in payroll taxes for 2010 wages, but will pay only $4,200 for earnings this year.

A difference of $2,000 that will not be circulated into the Social Security account.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates the cut will reduce federal revenues by $112 billion over the next two years.

Since the tax package is not offset by changes elsewhere in the budget, the government will have to borrow to fill that hole in the Social Security trust fund.

Social Security is already at a loss. It is clear that more people will be drawing on funds that are not available.

We cannot afford to draw down from Social Security even more. We must find other ways of revitalizing our economy without kicking the Baby Booming generation in the teeth.

As predicted, Rick Santorum enters the 2012 Presidential race.

As predicted, Rick Santorum enters the 2012 Presidential race.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) began his presidential campaign Monday in Pennsylvania by highlighting the former  2 term senator’s working-class roots. relating to “average Americans” and decrying President Obama for “devaluing” the country’s culture while relating to his most heartfelt constituent base;

“Our American journey started here in Somerset County,” Santorum told the crowd. “My grandfather came to this county way back in 1927.”

Santorum said his grandfather left Italy despite living in a “beautiful, little idyllic town in the mountains, right down on a lake” out of concern over Benito Mussolini’s fascist regime.

Santorum commented this his grandfather was equipped with an idea of high quality living and was driven by the line of thought: “I will not stand for this,’ and so he left, and he came here …  and he started in the coal mines.”

Santorum seems to take after his grandfather in his continuing line of thought that Obama has;

“Not just devalued our moral currency but  he has also devalued our culture.”

With once again, the Santorum generation not standing for less than ideal living conditions.

Afterward, Rick Santorum’s 7 seven children joined them on the stage where Santorum astonishingly comments  outloud, “I am one blessed man!”

Yes, Santorum may be blessed but it is the American people who are blessed to have a Republican nominee who has an ability to  protect the santitcy of life and of God’s written marriage.

Eye on 2012 predictions

I called Newt Gingrich jumping into the 2012 race as well  John Thune, Hayley Barbour and Mike Huckabee not running, then it dawned on me- I should create a blog on my 2012 predictions. 😀

Here are my newest 2012 predictions.

– Sarah Palin will NOT run for the Republican nomination.

– Jeb Bush will NOT run for the Republican nomination.

– Michele Bachmann will run for the Republican nomination.

– Rick Perry will run for the Republican nomination.

– Jon Huntsman Jr will run for the Republican nomination and place his headquarters in Florida.

– Im torn on Lt Col Allen West, I pray he runs but it seems to be up to the people in his district as Lt Col Allen West stated that he would run if his constituents supported him.

So much for Obama’s transparency; $1.3 Trillion Dollars Missing

Obama’s LOW approval rate and 12 reasons to NOT re-elect him in 2012.

  • Auto/wallstreet bailout,
  • High unemployment,
  • Unconstitutional push of socialized medicine.
  • Unconstitutional war on Libya with no clear set direction or exit strategy
  • 3 yr freeze on space research while awaiting private contractors
  • Shutting down our oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and catering to Brazil for our energy needs,
  • The push for granting illegals amnesty,
  • Taxing our higher income brackets (which spends the most disposable income)
  • Consistently bad foreign policy
  • A national debt of $14.3 trillion which is expected to double by 2020 under Obama’s budget recommendations.
  • Increase in taxes since Obama’s taken office and;
  • Outrageous gas prices

all have led to President Obama’s drastically increased disapproval rate of 53% (with 39% strongly disapproving).

Resounding and hopefully crippling  numbers to a man who is looking to seek a second term.

This proves to me that the American People are waking up and they are no longer being zombified by Obama’s flower and sunshine speeches. That people are starting to look at the “hard facts” and research Obama’s claims only to find that they, like me, are appalled at President Obama’s outright lies to the People.

Dont believe me that Obama straight out lies on television? Read this:

White House officials said this week they are not concerned about short-term polls when the president is focused on long-term solutions to big problems.

Which makes me chuckle as President Obama has NEVER concentrated on the long term solutions; which is apparent with how he plans on paying for his health care law of $2+ trillion dollars and his invasion into Libya with no clear exit strategy.

I predict that Obama’s approval rate will further drop if he continues his actions and does not take any drastic policy changes ESPECIALLY if he puts boots on the ground in Libya, stands tall in his “taxing the rich” concept and continues to spend as if he has a money tree in his backyard.

In fact there are 12 reasons as to why, as of date, President Obama should NOT be re-elected in 2012.

STRIKE 1: Auto/Wall Street bailouts

Remember when Obama PROMISED that if he could get enough money ( $85.1 billion for the auto industry and $4.6 trillion for wall street) that our unemployment rate would not go above 8%?  If so, read on.

STRIKE 2: Unemployment Rate Increase

Back in November of 2008 (when President Obama was elected), the national unemployment average was 6.5%.

Through Obama’s presidency, the unemployment rate has doubled and then some (despite his expensive attemps to scale it back) and have broken through the 2 digit mark with it national average high on January 2010 at 10.6% unemployment with other states, such as Florida’s unemployment reaching its peak at 12.1% in November 2010 and Florida is still sitting above Obama’s “dreaded” number of 8% at + 3.1 percentage points, 11.1% unemployment reported in March 2011.

STRIKE 3:  Signed an Unconstitutional Health Care bill into a law. 

A 2000+ page bill that President Obama signed into law that would make major changes to health care and give people with preexisting conditions more leverage in the insurance process.

Sounds great, everyone should be entitled to health care.

However, the problem being is that this health care law is Unconstitutional as it violates Section 1, Article 10 that gives all unmentioned rights to the State to control; (those rights cannot be federally controlled).

Apparently, this disapproval of the health care law is not only in my local area but US wide with 1000+ health care waivers have been given to small business who cannot afford the regulatory process as well as,  26 (possibly 28) states filing a lawsuit against the new health care law implemented last year under Obama’s watch.

STRIKE 4:  Unconstitutional war in Libya

Speaking of Unconstitutionality, President Obama is guilty of yet another offense which qualifies him, yet again, for impeachment. When President Obama helped establish a no fly zone- he did so alone; WITHOUT Congressional approval, a violation of Section 1, Article 8 of the US Constitution that states that the President MUST get the approval of Congress before engaging in a war and, even further, must declare a war before initiating one.

Does anybody else find it ironic that President Obama was a Constitutional Law Professor yet blatantly disregards the Constitution?!

STRIKE 5: 3 yr freeze on space exploration

Over the past year, President Obama put a freeze on NASA’s spending and has retired several shuttles in an attempt to give private contractors a piece of the space funding, in an attempt of job creation. While I have no problem with private contractors competing with govt contractors; the fact of the matter is that it will take AT LEAST 3 yrs for the private contractors to come up to speed on what it takes to make it in the space industry.

STRIKE 6: Initiated a Co dependency space taxi with Russia and sitting the sidelines of the Simulated Launch to Mars.

Meanwhile, we are forced to hitch rides with Russia at $60+ million/seat and sit out on the ” Simulated Launch to Mars Training” while Russia, Europe and China worked together to further their space credentials.

Also; the $424 million satellite was launched on March 4, 2011 and promptly ended up at the bottom of the southern Pacific Ocean. (Watch video:

Besides the loss of $424 million of space hardware, Orbital Sciences is one of the private companies NASA is counting on to lift cargo to the International Space Station when the shuttles are retired. If Orbital Sciences cannot launch a satellite; how can we put our firm faith in them to launch shuttles for the next 3 years?!

STRIKE 7:  Shutting down our oil rigs in the GoM and catering to Brazil for our energy needs

Let me first state that I have been personally affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in our beautiful Gulf , April 20, 2010. I have watched, with horror, as the oil kept coming and animals kept dying and our coastal communities suffered.

As many of you know, I had another Political ezine, Clearwater Perspective, where I was an investigation journalist and participated in many discussions between BP, NOAA, EPA, TransOcean and the Coast Guard. I heard the information from the source and I worked together with the leadership of all organizations to produce a plan in capping the gushing well in our beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

So, by all means, I was for additional safety measures as well as an independent drilling regulatory agency to esnure that our oil rigs were safe before they become operational.

However, I did not expect the moratorium (which, btw, didnt the Courts overturn but Obama disregarded their ruling?) to be as long as it has been NOR did I expect President Obama to make a trip to Brazil and tell them that we (the US) are going to be their biggest customers”.

To paraphrase Obama; “Let me be clear on this.” —  We are holding up our oil production in the Gulf of Mexico because we dont know if it is safe yet we are supposed to look to Mexico for gas/oil even thought Floatel Jupiter, an oil rig,  sank off the Mexican coast a couple weeks ago?  Isnt that just slightly hypocritical and setting the US up for additional oil dependency? I thought the goal was to become independent in our energy needs.

STRIKE 8: Pushing of granting illegals amnesty

Anybody remember the Democrats trying to push through the Dream Act in the middle of a lame duck session in an attempt to push it into existence? (This seems like President Obama’s modus operandi).

The purpose of the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, also called the DREAM Act would be to provide an opportunity for illegal aliens who have been living in the U.S., an opportunity to enlist in the military or go to college which then would result in a path of US citizenship.

As a born citizen of the US, this Act concerns me as I feel that this is a slap in the face to the U.S. Justice system, the immigrants who are waiting on their VISAs to be processed, the potential for a drastic increase in population and the inability pay for all of Obama’s socialistic programs.

STRIKE 9:  Tax and Spending, all the live long day.

Was it a surprise to anyone when President Obama pushed through these highly socialistic programs yet was not willing to make hard cuts (freezes DO NOT count as true spending cuts) that we would have to offset the money from somewhere and since Obama did not want to cut, at all (his words!) – what better way to be lazy than to take the money away from the people who are prosperous.

If this isnt the laziest way I have seen to pay for Obama’s “grand ideas of ridiculousness”.

The People in the higher income bracket have earned their money- it is not mine (nor the Government)’s right to take it away. May I remind you that it is the higher income bracket that spends the majority of their disposable income (as opposed to hard pressed people who save or pay off bills with the money left over from their paycheck) which keeps our economy afloat and if we are looking to create jobs, we should not take money away from the employers.

STRIKE 9:  BAD Foreign Policy

Let’s start back with the upheavel in Egypt this year where Obama was oddly silent on supporting the protesters or if would support the Egyptian leader, Hosni Mubarack.

Many foreigners started resenting the US for not taking a stand and I feel as if we lost a lot of our support (what little we had left) of our Middle Eastern allies.

Then, on the flip side, Obama enforced a no fly zone in Libya in an effort to support the People and out Mummar Qaddafi, the Libyan leader setting up a possible WWIII.

Not too mention, that Obama did not get Congressional approval (scroll up and look STRIKE 4, “Unconstitutional War in Libya”.

Then there is always Obama’s oddly quiet stance on the other areas of Middle Eastern  and neighboring Countries upheavel such as Algeria, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Israel/Palestine, Jordan, Pakistan and Iraq (remember how Obama promised that he would start diminishing the troops in Iraq? I havent seen that happen. Have you?)

STRIKE 10: Hitting out debt limit at $14.3 trillion and growing our debt

With recent talks of the $14.3 trillion debt limit that we are expect to hit on approximately May 5/6, 2011; perhaps I should use President Obama’s words to really nail the point home.

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.”

“Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America.”

“And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.”

“Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities.”

Senator Barack Obama
Senate Floor Speech on Public Debt
March 16, 2006

STRIKE 11: Obama acts as if money grows on trees; we cannot keep weakening the value of our dollar.

It seems that Obama does not know the mean of “true cutting” and does not realize that throwing money at a problem does not necessary solve the problem. However, Obama fails to realize this faulty line of logic and continues taxing our way to oblivion.

In 2009, President Obama  signed legislation raising taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products  and in 2010, Obama pushed 14 new taxes on to the American peoplein the health care law.

It is true that Obama did not raise income taxes. However, if he would have had his way- he would have eliminated Bush’s tax cuts when they were set to expire last year, he said publicly that he did not like Bush’s tax cuts and thought it was the “wrong way for the economy”.

If the tax breaks would have expired, then we would have been required to pay on those additional taxes which would, essentially be a  tax increase.

Not to mention that with Obama’s proposed 2011 budget- he proposes broader unemployment taxes from businesses.

Obama’s proposal would attempt to replenish strained state unemployment-insurance trust funds by raising the amount of wages on which companies must pay unemployment taxes to $15,000, more than double the $7,000 in place since 1983 and would take effect in 2014.

STRIKE 12: Gas prices are extremely high at $5/gallon.

Back in 2009, gas prices were $2.03 – $2.47 per gallon, now gas costs are topping $5/gallon.

Granted, there were a few things that were out of President Obama’s control but it is historically proven that if the President is running for re-election; gas prices are taking into consideration.

Let’s not forget to note that when gas prices are high; food and other “luxuries” become higher because the trucks have to absorb the cost of the price at the pump.

I know, personally, I am counting down the days until 2012. The American People deserve better and I will do whatever it takes to ensure that our children inherit a world better than the one we were born into and that simply is not possible with Ohnobama as President; history speaks for itself- no teleprompter or spin needed.

Remember, come election day~

“Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me.

Barrack Hussein Obama is

crippling our Economy.”

Pass it on and help save our children from a crippling debt, having their Constitutional rights breached and having to handle weakened foreign diplomacy. Thank you! 🙂

House passes GOP 2012 budget plan

On Friday, the House Republicans won a  near unanimous passage of the 2012 Budget, 235-193, a proposal to slash nearly $6 trillion over the next decade. All but 4 GOP lawmakers backed the plan.

The plan, presented by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., would cut $6.2 “T”rillion of dollars in spending and change Medicare and Medicaid programs- more than likely utilization of block granting and attempting to privatize the 2 entitlement programs with vouchers over the next 10 years.

Also, the 2012 budget plan would cut federal workforce by 10 percent and set a binding cap on total spending as a percentage of the economy.

Additionally, the 2012 budget  plan credits the fiscal commission with identifying ways to save on discretionary spending, including cutting corporate tax breaks, overhauling how the government manages real estate assets, and reducing the federal auto fleet by 20 percent.

Even though this budget has a slim chance of passing the Senate, it is commendable to see the Republicans put forth the effort to draft and pass a budget bill, something that House Democrats didn’t even bother with in 2010 (which is why we were being strung along for the past 4 months on Continuing Resolution after Continuing Resolution.)

House Majority Whip, Kevin McCarthy credited the success to an inclusive process, saying the budget was the first bill of the new Republican majority in which leaders were able to listen to members and incorporate their views.

Given the fact, that the Democrats feel that we can be taxed out of  a recession (in comparison, to the Republicans who feel that we can cut wasteful and abusive current spending to dig our way out and in which, I concur)- I  feel that this budget bill will be dead on arrival in the Senate as there are two very different ideologies at play.

However, the fact that the Republicans pushed a bill through the House not only sets spending guidelines for the future but also shows the American People that the Republicans are willing to make the hard cuts in order to ensure financial security for our children.

Now the ball is in the Democrats court.  Let’s see how they propose to get us out of this financial crisis.

Considering they havent given us a true solution with accurate analysis in over a year this will prove to be interesting.

Note to the Senate Democrats: Instead of being LAZY and taxing higher income brackets- let’s get to work and find ways to eliminate abusive and fraudulent practices in Medicare, Medicaid and Welfare so that we can reduce our funding and pay down our debt so that our children can live a life better than what we were given.
