How Many Lies Can The White House Tell Before The Walls Collapse?

President Barack Obama has no one to blame but himself.

He was the one who campaigned in 2008 on hope and change. He was the one who deployed high-flying rhetoric to promise a new day in Washington politics.

He was the one who said he was going elevate the level of discourse and make government transparent. He positioned himself as a new kind of leader. He was the one who turned his candidacy into a religious experience.

He was the one who convinced voters he stood above the fray, as a man and as a symbol. And on that basis, they boarded his train and rode it all the way.

He was the one who, inheriting a desperate economy, made his signature move upon gaining office: Obamacare.

Not jobs. Not prosecutions of corporate and banking criminals.

He made devastating choices for all Americans.

He was and is the one who has presided over a sinking economic ship.

Given his proclivity for big and bigger government, he could have launched a serious public program, one which really put people back to work, repairing the infrastructure of the Nation. But even this was beyond him.

And getting out of the way and letting Americans expand their small businesses and supporting them with the same intensity of rhetoric he used to win his election? Out of the question. Not in the playbook. Not for a second.

His big play out of the gate, Obamacare, shocked his closest advisers. They assumed jobs would be his No. 1 priority. They were dead wrong.

And what about “post-racial” America? That was not only a dud; it was a disaster. Division and polarization are the order of the day.

How about dependence and government as the solver of all problems, as the beneficent giver? How has that worked out? How can it possibly work out? America is going to become one big Sweden? Really?

It’s one thing for a Clinton or a Bush to lie and skate and divert and play the usual horrific games. But Obama set himself up as a man who was fundamentally different. That was his ace. That was how he won the Presidency. That was what people bought into.

So he falls further, even as his media supporters keep launching blizzards of lies to prop him up.

Many of his loyal followers believe “powerful forces” have fenced in Obama and sabotaged his efforts to work positive transformations. If so, then as a transcendent figure, he should step forward and use his oratorical powers to expose the criminal enterprise that surrounds the Presidency. He should speak directly to the American people and lay it on the line.

Or else he confesses that he is, in fact, another Clinton, another Bush.

The public loves fairy tales and myths, but considering the shape this country is in, that fascination is wearing very thin. It isn’t going to sustain the next three years of Obama in the White House.

Ninety million people are out of the workforce. Fifty million are on food stamps. Recovery? Is the President really going to keep pushing that narrative?

Admitting the truth might, as a long shot, create a platform from which Obama could launch a real campaign to restore jobs. But faking the unemployment crisis has been his chosen path.

The government Obamacare website is a shambles. It doesn’t appear that a simple fix is possible, which means chaos will continue for many months, perhaps longer. Private insurance companies are canceling hundreds of thousands of policies.

The past seven years of American political life have added up to a disaster. Blaming it all on Congressional gridlock, on delaying the ability of the White House to invent trillions more dollars in debt at the drop of a hat, isn’t working.

So many actions and omissions of madness… it leaves us with the reasonable conclusion that Obama’s Presidency was designed from the outset to flame out and fail.

And the principal target was the economy.

The President, fresh off an election victory in 2008 and in that glow, could have used his monumental leverage to put people back to work. He could have hammered on it day and night. He could have rallied support and energized the country.

But now, what do we have? Welfare America to the nth degree — beyond what anyone thought was possible. And media traitors are backing it.

For decades, for more than a hundred years, power has been in the wrong place.

It belongs with you and with me.

    A very good article that states our current dilema. Obama has achieved his goal in creating a situation where America will crumble under the burden of Obamacare. He has succeeded in dividing the people of the nation. Piled trillions in debt to burden the future generations I would say he has achieved a national transformation. Too bad it was not what he had lead the people to believe when he was campaigning. He was not the face of Hope but of evil. We have three more years under this regime Let’s hope they go quickly and the damage he will continue to inflict on the nation is minimized.

        “Not prosecutions of corporate and banking criminals.”

        JPMorgan was fined $13 Billion… although it’s far less than the $28 Billion JPMorgan had set aside and the fine is tax deductible… it is a prosecution. Of course, Faux news is against it.

        • Frank Kahn

          Well, if you believe the unemployment number, that might indicate an improvement. I question the growth of GDP though, the last reports I saw put it below 2% for this year. The high debt to GDP ratio shows a definite sinking of our economy. This is brought on by the QE policy of the FED. It also gives us a false sense of improvement with the artificially propped up stock market. It also contributes to the lower that acceptable interest rates. And, in case you have not heard, it also causes inflation due to the reduction of value, in buying power, of our currency.

          So, your slide show example of proof we are not sinking has no such effect. It shows all of the effects of quantitative easing. These effects are deceptive and make some indicators appear to be positive when they are not.

      • Lynn

        Let’s enter the world of censorship again and see if this post survives:

        Lie #1. “Not prosecutions of corporate and banking criminals.”

        JPMorgan has been fined $13 BILLION… which is far less than the $28 Billion the bank had put aside to pay potential fine AND the $13 billion fine is tax deductible.

        Lie #2. “He was and is the one who has presided over a sinking economic ship.”

        Flip through the charts from this English newspaper and you’ll find that the ship isn’t sinking at all.

        http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/9648747/How-the-US-economy-has-fared-under-Barack-Obama.html?image=1

        Lie #3 “He could have rallied support and energized the country.”

        He tried, but the GOP turned into the party that only said “NO”. The Tea Party cost the economy $20+Billion by shutting down the government for a few weeks and for what? A $700 Million gift to the Republican Senator from Kentucky? After losing an election in 2012… after losing 40+ times to defeat the bill… after the SCOTUS said the Affordable Care Act was Constitutional… The Tea Party demanded changes or they’d shut down the government. That is extortion. Then the Tea Party had the cajones to say the President wouldn’t negotiate? What ever happened to truth and honor and honesty? It’s lacking in Washington and it’s lacking in the discussions here.

        • Vis Fac

          Again I say: Facts to a liberal are those that are pulled out of thin air and or provided by lame stream media to swathe their ineptness on all things rational. Liberal one dimensional idiot-ology dictates they make things up as they go so they can blame others for their failures and nothing is ever ODUMBO’s or the DUMBOCRITES fault.

          So whenever they have trouble defending and/or nothing to substantiate their positions they simply fall back on the FBABO (Federal Board for Assigning Blaming to Others) or citing lame stream media’s partial/fabricated truths and prevarications; then all their liberal inadequacies are soon considered ancient history becoming non issues and then quickly forgotten

          will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

            Hey Marine… I posted three facts or three points and your only reply was some name calling?

            Again, to clarify because maybe you missed my original points. The writer claims that no banks have been prosecuted for the 2008 Financial Crisis. Not true. The writer claims the economy is a sinking ship. The data from the English newspaper says… not true. The writer talks about “blaming Congressional gridlock”. When that the only GOP strategy has been to become the party of “NO”… it would seem that Congressional gridlock is quite real.

            So you’ve somehow branded me a Liberal, called me some names and made some empty statements… it’s time to enter the debate with some facts. Defend your position and stop with the name calling, it’s not befitting a Marine.

          • Vis Fac

            That’s because facts to a liberal are those that are pulled out of thin air and or provided by lame stream media to swathe their ineptness on all things rational. That’s why they went unanswered.

          Actually, it was Reid that said no, and also Obama. They forced the shutdown of the government.

          • Lynn

            So Frank, you’re one of the remaining 28% who still think the GOP in it’s current state is okay? The Tea Party forced the shutdown like a kidnapper holds a victim for ransom and then you blame Reid & Obama for standing up to the kidnappers? I can’t believe you’ve thought that through and that’s your honest opinion.

          • Frank Kahn

            It is not an opinion, it is documented fact that Reid refused to sign a CR that funded all the government except the ACA. This is proof that it was the democratic party that shut down the government. No compromise, no negotiating, that was the mantra of Obama and his butt licking cronies. The majority of the nation does not want the ACA, so your percentage is based on false logic perpetrated by the left leaning liberal ideologues. Nobody, with half a brain functioning, considers it the republicans that shut down the government. Obama said I will not let you meanies harm my little baby toy. He is a whining, simpering little worm that needs to be taken out before he destroys the whole world. And all of you ignorant blind liberals need to be heaped on the trash piles with him.

          • 5live5

            Lynn, I don’t think EITHER party is okay as they are. the dems are trying to socialize this country to their liking whether their constituents want it or not. 41% of the people in Ohio are on some sort of welfare or support. does that sound ok to YOU?

    “So many actions and omissions of madness… it leaves us with the reasonable conclusion that Obama’s Presidency was designed from the outset to flame out and fail.”

    Mr. Rappoport:

    Obviously you are a keen observer of what is going on in this country. So how can you make the statement I quoted above? Of course what is happening is not by chance. But Obozo is not a failure – he is a resounding success! The puppeteers who control him, with George Soros in the lead, chose him to be the leader of the downfall of this country, with the destruction of the economy the major goal that would take us down the drain once and for all. And he is succeeding, isn’t he?
