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.
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
. 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." New Hampshire
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]
