As I witnessed Obama signing the Porkulus Bill into law yesterday I noticed something about his nose... it's growing! I thought I noticed this when he signed the Lily Ledbetter Act then again when he signed the SCHIP Bill... but he's the Messiah... and he's here to save us... right? The Messiah promised transparency in government under his administration... ya, right.. and I have 6 pack abs! First... let's review Obama's statements and positions so there is no question left to debate at the end of this.
From the Obama 'Ethics' page at http://www.barackobama.com/issues/ethics/:
Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.
Shine Light on Earmarks and Pork Barrel Spending: Obama's Transparency and Integrity in Earmarks Act will shed light on all earmarks by disclosing the name of the legislator who asked for each earmark, along with a written justification, 72 hours before they can be approved by the full Senate.
Google for Government: Americans have the right to know how their tax dollars are spent, but that information has been hidden from public view for too long. That's why Barack Obama and Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) passed a law to create a Google-like search engine to allow regular people to approximately track federal grants, contracts, earmarks, and loans online. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote, "It would enable the public to see where federal money goes and how it is spent. It's a brilliant idea."
Now just a few of his platitudes from his 2 year long campaign:
"A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency."
"For a long time now, there's been too much secrecy in this city," (Washington D.C.)
"We will publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment before the President signs it."
"to find new ways of tapping the knowledge and experience of ordinary Americans, scientists and civic leaders, educators and entrepreneurs" to solve problems.
"stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information, but those who seek to make it known."
"The way to make government responsible is to hold it accountable. And the way to make government accountable is make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they're being made, and whether their interests are being well-served."
So now it gets politically incorrect! In case you didn't realize... I pride myself on being politically incorrect... not abusive... just politically incorrect!
Calling someone a "liar" in some circles is not considered politically correct... so I'm calling Mr. Obama... a liar! He is a Liar... yes, a LIAR! Our President is a LIAR! His nose is growing and his pants are on fire! Liar is a word politicians never use... so I will... OBAMA is a LIAR!
To prove my position... Did Obama publish the Porkulus Bill so the American public could review and comment on it for at least 5 days before signing it? ... hell no! He LIED! The largest expenditure in human history was pushed through the House and Senate at the speed of light... hell... Congress didn't even read it!
So did he... shed light on all earmarks by disclosing the name of the legislator who asked for each earmark, along with a written justification, 72 hours before they can be approved by the full Senate? ... hell no! He LIED... again! Haven't seen a list and it certainly didn't get published so Americans could review it. LIE!
So did he live-up to his position that... the way to make government accountable is make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they're being made, and whether their interests are being well-served? ... hell no! Just another LIE!
So did he... tap the knowledge of ordinary Americans -- scientists, educators, entrepreneurs -- to find ways to solve the problems of our times as one nation by involving the American people in shaping the policies that affect their lives... hell no! The liberal wackos wouldn't even let the other party into the conference committee room so he signed a Bill with virtually NO input from the other side, let alone from the public! LIED again to the American people!
So did he comply with his own stated policy when signing the SCHIP or the Lily Ledbetter Act into law?... hell no! I rest my case! If you voted for this guy... you voted for a LIAR! He is either a LIAR... or... he's a... LIAR!
All you Obama supporters and defenders have no excuses... you cannot wiggle out of this one! You have to concede... Obama LIED to you! None of these bills could be considered 'emergency legislation"... certainly not the SCHIP Bill ... nothing in it could have been considered an emergency. Same with the Lily Ledbetter Act... it was just a payoff to trial lawyers but certainly not an emergency! Was the Porkulus Bill an "emergency"... well, if it was then Obama was grossly negligent and irresponsible to take his wife out to a fancy restaurant on a vacation in Chicago while the rest of us suffer the consequences of his inaction.
Not one of these Bills could be considered 'emergency legislation'... all you Obama supporters have to admit... he is a LIAR! Please... don't bring up Bush at this point... he's irrelevant now and you can't misdirect our attention away from the fact that your guy... is a LIAR!
Just makes me smile... because I told you so!
