Obama Lied, The Economy Died

Fresh off Blake’s post about Obama lying and your family dying because of rationed health care, I have decided to post about Barack Obama and his lies that have killed the economy.

After he took the oath of office, Barack Obama set out to tackle the economy or at least that is what he wants you to think. In reality he gave the Democrats in Congress free reign to write the stimulus package. He ignored Republican input and told America that we needed to pass this right now or we would go into a spiral that we might not come out of. The final bill, which was opposed by every Republican in the House, was loaded with pork (more than the 380 TONS of pork the bill actually bought) and it was loaded with the Democrat’s pet projects, the ones they have been dreaming of. One thing not in the bill was anything that stimulated the economy.

Obama told us that within 14 days of the bill there would be shovels hitting the ground. Then when that did not happen he said it was to be expected because there were a lot of things that needed to be planned before the shovels could actually begin hitting the ground.

Obama told us that unemployment would peak at 8% and then back off if we passed the bill but not passing it would cause unemployment to hit 10%. We passed it and unemployment is nearly 10%. Joe Biden recently admitted that they underestimated the crisis. Then he and Obama told us that the stimulus was working exactly as planned and that they never intended for there to be immediate results. No, the stimulus will produce results about 16 months down the road and all we have to do is trust them because we are on track.

Unfortunately, Obama told us that we would see immediate results. He said that this would create or save (you cannot measure a saved job) 3 million jobs. Since that time we have lost 3 million jobs which is a 6 million swing. In other words, we are 6 million away from where Obama said we would be.

Obama lied to us. He fabricated all of these things to force through the bill full of pork (another thing he promised to get rid of) and pet projects that had little, if anything, to do with stimulating the economy. This was a power grab that was passed because Obama lied.

There is no doubt. Barack Obama lied to us to get his stimulus passed. He ignored many experts and he ignored Republicans who gave him alternate ideas (he ignored them after he said he would listen to all ideas – another lie) and he ignored historical evidence that increasing spending in an economic downturn was the wrong thing to do. He ignored the examples of Ronald Reagan and John Kennedy, both of whom lowered taxes to get out of their recessions. He told us one thing but his goal was quite another.

Obama lied and the economy died.

Let us not forget that for 7 years the left accused George Bush of lying about WMD. They accused him of fabricating evidence, manipulating reports and making the case for an invasion that was full of lies. The left told us that George Bush lied to us and that he did it because he wanted to go to war in Iraq.

I submit that Barack Obama lied to us about the economy and he fabricated stories about impending disaster in order to quickly pass a bill full of pay offs to his special interest groups. He allowed tons of pork while lying about what the bill would really do and how quickly it would be done.

Obama is a liar. He lied about the stimulus to get it passed.

Obama lied, the economy died.

    These people feel that if they pile it on, we the people will not be able to counter all the BS they are shoveling, so they do TARP, stim.1, stim.2, Healthcare, bailout1, bailout2, auto bailouts and takeovers, Cap and Tax, just pile it all on.

    I would like to see someone slip into a bill the statement that Obama must step down now and have Obama sign it without reading the bill. I can’t take much more of him. I’m so tired of him saying “I am the President” when I don’t have any proof that he is.

      While the problem about his Birth may trouble some people, it is a distraction. The real problem is that he is in, and is hell- bent on transforming our country into something our founding fathers would not recognize except as something they would have run from, and did.

    I find it interesting that the more it appears that his Healthcare is sinking, the more the stock market surges into positive territory.
    If we can defeat Cap and tax, Happy days will be here again.
