The Polls Speak But the Lies Continue

According to most polls the American people want to see the so called Health Care fiasco scrapped and started from scratch but the current administration is determined to have it passed and forced down the throats of the American people. The President and the House and Senate leadership continues to lie, spin, and try to fool the people into believing that they and only they know what is best for them.   Here is what I found on what the polls are saying.

Most U.S. voters (55%) would rather see Congress scrap the original plan and start all over again, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.  Unaffiliated voters, by a nearly two-to-one margin, also favor starting over.

The president's health care summit last week seems to have nudged up support for the reform plan, but  52% of US voters continue to oppose it.   Sixty percent (60%) of voters believe Democrats should change the bill to win support from a reasonable number of GOP's. This finding is similar to the those found in October and  August of last year. Only 31% believe Democrats should go ahead and pass the bill without Republican support.

Separate polling finds that 65% of U.S. voters now think politics in the nation's capital will become more partisan over the next year.

Scott Rasmussen notes that Americans are "united in the belief that our political system is broken, that politicians are corrupt, and that neither political party has the answers.  Wonder why American’s believe the system is broken?  Could it be because of the lies that are being foisted upon them by the current administration?  Certainly congress has not been transformed into what was promised by Nancy Pelosi. It remains corrupt, even more corrupt than any congress in recent years. Scandals and back room deals certainly have proven to the American people that nothing has changed, and has only gotten worse this past year.

It doesn’t stop at Congress. It goes all the way to the top.  In his push to foist an unwanted Health Care Bill upon the American people Obama  has done a total 180 from his early campaign days, but then when has campaigning ever stopped in this administration.  So the question is, was he lying then or is he lying now?  Frankly I believe he is a compulsive liar and the truth is not in him.
Here are just a few examples from recent days. I am sure that most of you can add more  to the pack of lies already put forth by this man.

President Barack Obama is trying to achieve a health care overhaul the way he once said it couldn't, and shouldn't, be done. He now wants congressional Democrats to move ahead without Republican support and pass the legislation with a bare majority in the Senate instead of the broader majority he favored as a presidential candidate.
He's reverting to a "50-plus-one" strategy that he called a losing proposition — because "you can't govern" with it — back when he was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs(another compulsive liar and spin master) denied that, insisting Obama was "talking about electoral strategy, not vote counting in the House and the Senate," in his October 2007 remarks. In fact, Obama was talking about both, and more.

THE CLAIM: Gibbs at first said Obama was only talking about how to get elected when he criticized the 50-plus-one strategy in an October 2007 interview with the Concord Monitor in New Hampshire. Pressed, Gibbs then said Obama meant "you're not going to get legislation through Congress if only 50 percent plus one in the country think it's a good idea. That's why if you look at poll after poll, people want health care reform and the debate on health care reform to continue."

THE FACTS: Obama wasn't talking about polls or public opinion — or only about electoral politics — in the interview.

"You've got to break out of what I call the — sort of — 50-plus-one pattern of presidential politics, which is you have nasty primaries where everybody's disheartened, then you divide the country 45 percent on one side 45 percent on the other and 10 percent in the middle," he began. "Battle it out and then maybe you eke out a victory of 50 plus one, and then you can't govern."   

He went on to talk specifically about getting legislation through Congress: "You can't deliver on health care. We're not going to pass universal health care with a 50-plus-one strategy. We're not going to have a serious bold energy policy of the sort that I proposed yesterday unless you build a working majority."  [And of course everyone who has heard his constant campaign for his NOCARE plan knows that he is lying now and that he was lying then.]

Asked in the interview if his Democratic nomination rival Hillary Rodham Clinton would be a "50-plus-one president" and that's why he, as a consensus builder, would be better, he replied, "Yes."  [ So far he has been the most disaffecting , president yet]

It’s time for the lies and spin to stop Obama. The  majority of the American People , have seen the truth and they are calling you a liar. They are not whispering it, Obama, they are screaming it.  Time to let the ego go and stop the nonsense, start over and maybe, just maybe real Health Care Reform will be accomplished in your time. Keep up as you are going and you will face the wrath of the American People and it will be as you nor your cohorts in the Congress have ever seen before.  Are you listening?  Doubtful, indeed doubtful.

I don’t think Obama should stop the lies. I don’t want him converting to Christianity before we have the opportunity to pull the switch on his administration, ya know? I don’t want him reelected by a sympathy vote. No, rather than Obama stopping the lies, I would much rather have most Americans wake up to the fact that Obama is a liar, and a thief, and a communist.

As I have said before I think the Nation owes Barack Obama a great big thank you. We have been sleeping for decades now while we lived the good life on someone else's dime. Meanwhile our government has been becoming more and more corrupt and taking more and more of our rights away from us. Barack Obama came in like gang busters and blatantly started right in with his agenda to finish the nation off in one last push. First get our health care system and then get the rest of the economy by taking over the financial system. But instead of sleeping thru this as we Americans were expected to do, we woke up! The 30's and 40's age groups woke up and they ain't going back to sleep during their life time. Count on it because this is the groups that will win back America and fight back Obama and his thug brothers in this world.

Yes Siree Bob: Thank you Mr. Obama. We who were trying to reach people with our warnings were spinning our wheels and talking to each other. We couldn't have done it with out you. BB
