Yet Another Obama Lie
August 26, 2011 by Chip Wood
Another Obama whopper. Did you hear this lulu from our President about all the “cuts” that will be made in the Federal budget? “The result would be the lowest level of annual domestic spending since Dwight Eisenhower was President,” our obfuscator in chief declared. Seems he left out the word “discretionary” from his boast. This makes a huge difference. According to the Congressional Budget Office, nondefense discretionary spending was only 19 percent of total Federal spending in 2010. Figures don’t lie, but … you know the rest.
Even Spider-Man is becoming politically correct. Guess what? The newest Spider-Man is a half-black, half-Hispanic teenager named Miles Morales. Oh, not on this planet, but in an alternate universe Marvel Comics has created. Don’t you wish they’d just leave our superheroes alone?
The king is dead… at least at Burger King. I confess I’m not going to miss the ridiculous mascot the hamburger chain has used for years. No, I’m not talking about Ronald McDonald; I kind of like that dufus. I’m referring to Burger King’s king. It seems the plastic figure didn’t resonate enough with customers, so he’s filmed his last commercial. Just as well; I never did like the dude.
Still want to copy Britain’s health care? For all those do-gooders who are thrilled that Obamacare is moving us closer to Britain’s medical care, here’s a shocker: 239 patients died of malnutrition in the country’s public hospitals in 2007. At any given time, more than 250,000 Brits have waited 18 weeks or longer for medical treatment. This follows a decade in which spending on the National Health Service doubled. And this is what the Democrats want to bring to this country?
