Letter: Lies carried 2012 election

11 Comments | Leave a Comment


Lies and deceit seem to be the protocol for the Obama administration. Every day we hear more and more how this current government has been covering up everything they are doing. Fast and Furious, NSA, IRS and Benghazi, just to name a few. Here are a few more facts: The unemployment figures right before the 2012 election were fudged to make it look good for Obama.

March of 2013, the White House knew the website, ACA, was not going to work, Obama said he knew nothing about it.

In 2010 the Department of Justice lawyers knew that the grandfathered clause about keeping your health insurance policy was wrong. They knew 80 million people would lose their policies. Can you imagine how the last election would have turned out if the American people knew the truth.

The funny thing is

Obama is one of the most honest presidents in modern times. The job is difficult and absolutely nobody can be a Boy Scout and president. It's dirty and stressful. Though it all Obama has been basically true to the middle and working class while giving the rich their due while not overly screwing the poor. The tea party is a modern day lynch mob. They talk about freedoms and liberty but offer no solutions to real problems.

AHHAHAAHAHAH....

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!

disease

i now know liberalism is a mental disease, you have lost your mind.

LOL

What are you mixing with that kool-aid?

*jean--great letter. America

*jean--great letter. America as we've known it is on it way out unless something is done and fast. *to many self-absorbed in their I-pads, internet, tv and games they are unknowledgeable of what is fast taking place in our country. out president Obama is a liar--time after time--and lies to cover up lies. his "helpers" are as bad as he is. leadership is non-existent . the world is laughing at us. *one day we may wake up and wonder--what happened?

same old

Have nothing intelligent to write so either blame Bush or name call.

Another nutty letter

Tsk

Politics as Usual

Obviously you don't remember Richard Nixon.

Oh no, not one of these again....

Fast & Furious~~originated in the Bush miasadministration under a different name.... NSA~~Bush's TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS PROGRAM, never heard a peep from you hypocrites..... IRS~~REPUBLICAN President Eisenhower's IRS appointee unilaterally 'reinterpreted' the wording of the 501 c4 law which is "to apply only to civic leagues or organizations not for profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare", he changed it from EXCLUSIVELY to PRIMARILY. ALL 501 c4's should be made to re-apply under the original wording, should NOT be for partisan political organizations to game the system. Thank Ike for that. Why Obama can't order the change back is beyond me. Benghazi~~handled like amateurs, should have a standing order to all diplomatic personnel in Muslim countries, especially in destabilized recent dictatorships, to hunker down on 9/11 anniversaries. We have no military bases in North Africa, short of having a warship off the coast, antagonizing the local people and wobbly govts, our presence should be to tread as lightly as possible. But we had a clandestine CIA operation there whose mission it was to take as many arms as hey could off the streets. How, I have no idea, but if locals knew that CIA was operation right under their nose it would inflame those who don't need inflaming to be dangerous. but whatever happened to Bush Sr's 'PROTECTING SOURCES & METHODS'? You right wingers have been crowing from the beginning, but then you are the party who outed an active CIA operative because of a petty vendetta, never heard a PEEP from you hypocrites about that. You have no use to protect our secret missions and operatives, only want to score political points, bloodthirsty hypocrites. Having said that, the whole thing was handled horribly, and not being able to answer questions to protect sources and methods only makes them look worse. Having stated how badly the whole thing was bungled, that does not let the Republicans off the hook, who CUT $331 MILLION FROM THE DIPLOMATIC SECURITY BUDGET that year. Ya THINK we could have used that extra $331 MILLION for DIPLOMATIC SECURITY? It wouldn't have hurt! Your budget cuts, dogmatic austerity and forced sequesters on our govt have real world consequences. You gleefully give oil company $HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS (cumulatively since Reagan) while cutting aid to the most needy, and slash govt spending across the board, in many cases hogtie-ing effectiveness, then wail because you've rendered govt ineffective. The ACA~~The individual health insurance mandate was a Republican idea straight from the Heritage Foundation, only Obama knows why he would adopt that idea, maybe because he thought being their idea it would garner him some Republican votes, little did he know that they met the DAY HE WAS INAUGURATED to vow to NOT support him UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, no matter if an idea was good for the country or not. Medicare for all would be good for the country, individual mandate was a cockamamie idea. Even though Obama is a typical corporatist politician playing the same games as those before him, telling similar lies as those before him, I look to intentions. THERE IS NO FALSE PARITY. He wants every citizen to be protected with health insurance, as clumsily as he went about it, but Republicans would just cede all power, in every way, to corporations. Who has your better interests in mind? Certainly not Republicans. I feel a full screed is appropriate, but I'll let it slide for now, just don't even get me started....

A What?

What is a "screed"?
