I give up. My only question now about Obama is are enough buses for all the voters Obama will throw under them? His disingenuous use ’em and lose ’em routine is so, soooo tired.
He started his under-the-bus routine early in his career, keeping incumbent Alice Palmer off the ballot by challenging her every ballot petitioner so he could run unopposed.The story is here if any of his starry eyed followers care to remember. Since then, of course, Obama is all about making sure every vote counts-when it counts for him-funding Acorn to sign up every crack addict and cartoon character capable of boarding a bus to the polls.
Then, Let’s see, hmmmmmm. Backtrack Barack changed his mind on:
Reverend Jeremiah Wright in a “Lincolnesque” and graceful toss under the wheels
NAFTA-didn’t mean what he said
Separation of church and state
Campaign Finance Reform
His position against “state secrets” as applied to tortured detainees
A clear policy repudiating Bushes’ signing statements which undermined the separation of governmental powers and drastically increased the power of the executive branch
The death penalty
The Fair Pay Act-setting standards for equal pay for women
In his zeal to present a picture of bi-partisanship on HR 1 with Republicans he has failed to oppose:
The elimination contraception and family planning funding for poor women
A severe cut in funding for work rehabilitation for the blind
Huge cuts in funding for
* State stabilization fund, cut by $39.78 billion
* Title I, cut by $6.5 billion
* Special education/IDEA, cut by $6.75 billion
* Head Start, cut by $1 billion
Prevention and wellness funding for diabetes, HIV/AIDS and STDs. No surprise on HIV/AIDs since Obama praised Rick Warren’s AIDS Africa outreach which helped demonize gay activists and activated an abstinence only program that actually increased AIDs cases, especially among women. Even if he is a total homophobe, which I suspect he is, wouldn’t he fight for funding for the health issues that strike the African-American community so disproportionately, AIDS and Diabetes?
I’m sure there are plenty of other examples I can’t recall. Oh yeah. Obama was going to pay Hillary’s campaign debt if she gave him her donor list and campaigned for him. And um, that didn’t happen, the debt payment, that is.
I suppose Obama doesn’t really give a hoot about the people who gave him their money and worked so hard to elect him, even the ones who still dream of the GQ president on long winter nights. If they thought they heard him make a promise he’ll inform them they were mistaken. No, that’s wrong, according to spokesbots from the Obamanation. He’s the worlds smartest and most arcane thinker, dreaming up convoluted tricks with which to snare his enemies. NOT!
See ya under the bus Obots.
