Dreams of Stanley Ann Dunham’s son
What would you think or do if you went to buy a car looking to improve the safety of your family. You go in looking to buy a SUV, but the salesman begins to tell you a tale of woe. It seems his family tried that, but was involved in an accident. While you expect an SUV would do well, HE TELLS YOU THAT BECAUSE IT WAS TOP HEAVY IT ROLLED OVER AND HIS WIFE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR MONTHS. IT ALMOST BANKRUPTED HIM AND SHE WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME AS A RESULT OF HER INJURIES.
He directs you to the new Chevy Volt. Not only will it save you bundles on gasoline, but it has a safety rating that is through the roof. And there is no pesky chance that it would roll over. You buy the car, and find it does give great gas mileage but only for 30 miles. After that it runs on gasoline like every other car. YOU ARE IN AN ACCIDENT AND FIND IT TAKES MONTHS RATHER THAN DAYS TO FIX AND THE REPAIR COSTS ARE OUT OF SIGHT. You then find out that the salesman never had a SUV, but had made the story up.
The reason for this story is because we are discovering that this is similar to what BHO did when he tried to sell his healthcare plan. HE TOLD THE STORY OF HIS MOTHER FIGHTING THE INSURANCE COMPANIES WHO CLAIMED HER CANCER WAS A PREEXISTING CONDITION THAT DISQUALIFIED HER FROM COVERAGE. He told how she spent her final days trying to get her medical insurance to cover her cancer treatments.
Are you ready for the rest of the story as Paul Harvey used to say? In the book “A SINGULAR WOMAN: THE UNTOLD STORY OF BARACK OBAMA’S MOTHER” we find out that the 1995 dispute was not with her healthcare provider, but with Cigna disability insurance policy and THAT HER ACTUAL HEALTH INSURER HAD REIMBURSED MOST OF HER MEDICAL EXPENSES WITHOUT ANY ARGUMENT.
It seems to me that “YES, WE CAN” MEANS YES WE CAN FOOL SOME OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME and all of the people some of the time, but unfortunately for BHO, you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
Barack Obama’s extravagant Ancien Régime tells the American people: let them eat taxes
THE AUDACITY OF BARACK OBAMA’S PRESS CONFERENCE THIS MORNING ON THE BUDGET TALKS WAS SIMPLY BREATHTAKING. There is something monumentally surreal about the head in the sand approach being taken towards the debt crisis by the gilded elites in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In fact the president and his advisers are giving every impression that they sit atop an out of touch, decaying Ancien Régime, oozing elitist contempt for public opinion and the views of ordinary American people. President Obama has never appeared more distant from the US electorate than he has today, which is probably why just 16 percent of Americans are satisfied with the direction their country is taking, according to Gallup.
THE PRESIDENT MADE THE ASTONISHING CLAIM TODAY THAT A STAGGERING 80 PERCENT OF AMERICANS WANT TAX INCREASES AS PART OF ANY APPROACH DEALING WITH THE DEBT CEILING ISSUE, DECLARING: “THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SOLD. THE PROBLEM IS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE DUG IN IDEOLOGICALLY.”
However, as a major poll published just yesterday by Rasmussen shows, this ASSERTION IS COMPLETE BUNK:
As the Beltway politicians try to figure out how they will raise the debt ceiling and for how long, most voters oppose including tax hikes in the deal. JUST 34% THINK A TAX HIKE SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN ANY LEGISLATION TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING. A NEW RASMUSSEN REPORTS NATIONAL TELEPHONE SURVEY FINDS THAT 55% DISAGREE AND SAY IT SHOULD NOT.
There is a huge partisan divide on the question. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike in the deal while 82% of Republicans do not. Among those not affiliated with either major political party, 35% favor a tax hike and 51% are opposed.
I’m not sure if he is delusional or simply is blinded by ideology, but not even 80% of Democrats are sold.
