Congressman: ‘President Obama, Quit Lying’

Congressman: ‘President Obama, Quit Lying’

On Wednesday, Representative Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) uploaded a video onto his website, in which he accuses President Barack Obama of lying and trying to scare the American people about the possibility of the United States defaulting. Walsh urged the President to change tactics and convince the Democrats to support a Balanced Budget Amendment. The video can be viewed below.

“President Obama, quit lying,” Walsh said in the video. “You know darn well that if August 2nd comes and goes there is plenty of money to pay off our debt and cover all Social Security obligations. And you also know that you and only you have the discretion to make those payments.”

Walsh took issue with statements the President made in a recent CBS News interview, in which Obama said he could not guarantee that Social Security checks would be mailed on Aug. 3 if the U.S. defaulted on Aug. 2.

Walsh also accused the media of being complicit in deceiving citizens, saying, “I know you have a willing media that protects everything you say and do, but have you no shame sir? In three short years, you have bankrupted this country and destroyed job creation. You are either in over your head, don’t understand what makes this country great, or are hell-bent in turning us into some European big government wasteland.”

Walsh defended the video in an interview with Chicago radio station WLS AM today: “If your teenage son, who, when his parents left, had a big ol’ blowout party, trashed the house — the parents come back home, and the teenage son is just irate that he has to clean up all by himself.”

“This guy, this President… has spent us off of a cliff in the last three years. Now, all of a sudden, he comes out and says, ‘Come on guys, we gotta get serious about this spending,’” Walsh said. “Yes, the President is lying. It’s beyond playing politics.”

    I’m afraid asking Barry to quit lying is like asking a leopard to change its spots– it’ ain’t gonna happen

    I saw the video. My thanks to Joe Walsh. It’s ironic that Walsh is from Illinois. In fact, it makes me wonder how Walsh could get elected in that state.
    As for the Bummer, Walsh what people need to know about him, his lack of a conscience and his determination to destroy America from within. A polite way to describe the Bummer’s true value to America and the American people is in the idea that he, via his puppet masters, blends his special mix of economic and political insanity via socialism, communism, fascism (the REAL corporate whores, i. e.) and anything that gets him what he wants. He’s got something for everyone – if you have no use for freedom or the right to have a functional, worthy government.

    Asking a habitual liar not to lie, is like asking a snake or a mad dog not to bite.

    How do you know Obama is Lying. When His Lips are Moving. If His Lacky SEIU works the polls, You can bet He will win His secsong term. At that Point you can Kiss America and our Freedom Good-bye. The Muslim code is not to tell a Lie unless it is to your Enemy to achieve your Purpose. He doen’t even pretend any more that he care s about America. He hate Chritians and Jews, which he was taught to do by HIs Muslim Father and thePreacher Jermiah Wright. Give him 4 more years and we will have Sharia Law.He has said that he can’t get all he wants to accomplish in just 4 years. I don’t know even if he is not re-elecsted that anyone can get our Country back to what it was set out to destroy it.

    The media and the Republican Tea Party continue to state lies about many Democrat policy! Like the $789 billion dollar stimulus package under President Obama. There were many American that benefited from the package. It also STOP the recession and save the automobile industry!The media also played down the fact that former Republican President G.W. Bush administration sent American to their death in Iraq for nothing! There was know “Weapon Of Mass Destruction”! There was no need for 4,400 and counting American troops to die! Republican voter are not thinking about the country. They are buying into the hate and divide of the Republican Tea Party!

    The media and the Republican Tea Party are condemning and demonizing President Obama Healthcare Plan” with such hatred. One of the biggest lies that both the Republican Tea Party and the media is participating in. Is the lie about the Healthcare mandates! They state that there are no incident where the Government can mandate that a American purchase anything. WRONG! Any American that own a car must purchase car insurance! If not and you are caught without car insurance you can loose your license and or go to jail! Republican are outrage that 32 American have the opportunity to get healthcare. But the needless deaths of American troops are SO-SAD-TOO-BAD that the price of war! GO FIGURE! The media also like to repeat how high unemployment is for black Americans.

    OK………. around the country many Americans are standing up against the corrupt power structure in America! The “occupier are camping out in tents and chanting “We are the 99%”! They march around the cities! They have been beaten and arrested by police officers! The occupier have been demean and ridicule by right wing TV networks.. Fox News Sean Hannity has demonize and lied and reported on nothing but the negative about the occupy! Republican candidate for President Newt Gingrich stated that the occupy need to take a bath. Republican candidate Michele Bachmann said the occupy want to live off the government. Republican candidate Herman Cain said if your not rich blame yourself! Clearly the Republican like the way the country works or NOT!

    All of the Republican candidate for President are elitist and see the occupy and the middle-class and the poor as complaining little people! That will do as they say do. AND LIKE IT! They don’t see the occupy as equals! The Republican party and the tea Party are fighting against the country and the President of the United States! Hate and divide is the agenda!!! Now it’s time for action…..There should had been voter registration campaign going on and helping citizen obtain the new require ID’s to vote! The occupier should in power the Democrat Party and vote out the Republican Party. They should also vote out independence and Democrat that voted against President Obama recovery policy!

    Clearly if a Republican gets into the “White House” the 99% are going to be under attack. The rich and super rich will get richer. The minimum wage will go down to $2.00 a hour or be eliminated as Newt Gingrich suggest ! If Mitt Romney gets near the “White House” he has suggested that the Government do nothing for American losing their home. Romney stated “let them lose their homes so investor could buy them up and resale for profit! There are Republicans and Democrats that must GO! Republican Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona and Connecticut Independence Senator Joe Lieberman is very destructive! Kentucky Republican Senator Mitch McConnell stated that his main concern was defeating President Obama and doing nothing for the country!

    Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul is very destructive and want to repeal the “Civil Right Bill”! Republican Senator South Carolina Lindsey Graham is totally evil and very destructive to the country!Republican Utah Senator Orrin Hatch too old too destructive! Republican Senator of Oklahoma Tom Coburn very destructive and a danger to the country! As a Doctor Coburn is a disgrace for not supporting the Healthcare Plan for 32 million Americans! Then it’s Arizona Senator Republican John McCain he must go. McCain is too old and extremely destructive! Two Senate Democrats — Jon Tester of Montana and Ben Nelson of Nebraska opposed President Obama on a procedural vote! These two Democrats especially MUST GO!

    The Occupy Mission should be to defeat these politician and re-elect President Obama. So President Obama can continue the recovery stopped by the 2010 election!

    All that I mention above MUST GO!!!!!
