This may come as a shock to people, but Obama lies. After all, he is a politician isn’t he? Obama lies brazenly. If the drive by media were not in the tank for Obama, he would get called on his lies much more often.
What is his latest, possibly most outrageous lie?
Obama claimed that in the last three decades, the middle class has lost ground. Obama claimed that this is because the rich keep getting richer. From 1979 to 2007, those in the top 1% did very well.
The middle class did not do too badly either, through 2007. After tax income for middle class Americans from 1979 to 2007 rose 65%. That’s not too bad. The middle class is defined as those in the income break down that fall between the 21st and the 80th percentile. Even those in the bottom 20% saw their income rise during the same period by 18%.
What changed in 2007 that made the middle class stop growing and opened the door for the middle class to start sliding backwards? It was the Democratic takeover of Congress.
Since the Democrats have taken over Congress and later the White House, income in the middle class has fallen. Unemployment rates among the middle class have risen considerably.
The Congressional Budget Office details the prosperity that occurred for the middle class from 1979 through 2007. So what happened?
Economic disaster is what happens when you let liberals control government. Obama wants us to forget our history and believe the middle class has been going down the tubes since the days of Ronald Reagan.
Memo to Obama. Jimmy Carter tanked the economy. Reagan brought it back. Clinton would have tanked the economy but two years into his administration, America had the good sense to put Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives and Speaker Newt Gingrich and the House gave Clinton little choice about putting America’s house in order.
There are several things to be disturbed about with Obama’s blatant lies. First, is the fact the thinks he can get away with those lies. So much of the drive by media is no longer a free media but little more than a propaganda arm for the Democrat Party. The Washington Post and New York Times spend more time defending the Obama regime and investigating critics than they do investigating the Obama regime.
CBS has been working on a story on the Fast and Furious operation that Attorney General Eric Holder has been stonewalling and earlier this month allegations were raised that CBS was muzzling its own reporter who was digging into the story.
There is one aspect of this that no one talks about. Why do we not have a real adversarial media? We have adversarial media when there is a Republican in the White House, but that is not what I mean by an adversarial media. If you check down the list, we have an overwhelmingly liberal media. The New York Times and Washington Post are both on the same sheet of music. So are CBS, NBC, CNN, ABC, MSNBC and the rest. Fox is not conservative, but merely fair and balanced.
Where is an adversarial press? An adversarial press is a press that is adversarial against each other. Half the media should be conservative. Instead we have 90% of the media that is far left and only a few cases of media that are right of center. The Washington Times is right of center. The Drudge Report is given credit for being right of center. Breitbart, WND and Newsmax are right of center. After that, you run out very quickly.
If we had a real adversarial media, Obama would not lie with impunity. If we had a real adversarial media, scandals like Fast and Furious and the cover-up would not be mostly ignored. If we had a real adversarial media, Obama probably never would have made it to the White House.
No. When adjusted for inflation, middle and lower incomes barely moved.
I HAVE YET TO HEAR FOX NEWS TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THAT KENYA BOY, NOT ONE NEWS PERSON HAS EVER SAID THAT THE BANDIT IN THE WH IS FOREIGN BORN AND THERSFORE NOT QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT, BUT BECAUSE OF THEIR LACK OF THAT TRUTH I NO LONGER WATCH FOX AND CERTAINLY NONE OF THOSE OTHER UN-NEWS STATIONS; I GET MORE AND UP TO THE MINUTE NEWS ON THE WEB SUCH AS THIS WEB SITE.
It's the same thing when the Media talks about the Republicans being obstructionist when it comes to getting anything done in Congress. I'm sure they never mention that there are at least 15 bills that have been past by the House that Obama is completely ignoring. What about his letting The Free Agreement sit in his drawer for 2 years, was that the Republicans fault? You will never see any of the mainstream Media report on that.
If we can win the election in 2012, which I don't have much confidence in will happen, all conservatives have GOT to come together and hold whoever's elected feet to the fire so we can bring back some sanity to this country.
The funny part is that most Americans have been learning the truth...BECAUSE OF THE TEA PARTY..... We are the ones the ones that got all the truth out there and got everything started. The liberals helped us out because they are stupid enough to tell everyone that we are such bad people. Those that were not members of the Tea Party wanted to see about these bad people because the liberals and Obama couldn't stop talking about us. So people when to go see us, they heard us, they liked us, they read up on us, they joined this group, they are blogging about it. Now the truth is out there and people are saying.."Oh wow, this IS true about the Democrats." There are Hispanics that are writing to news papers that try to claim that almost all hispanics are Democrats. This happened here and the girl who I am friends with wrote to them..having a FIT about the Artical. "Most of US hispanics are NOT Democrats, we relate to the Conservatives and the Tea Party. We have a Conservative Hispanics group with well over 1000 people and we are growing. We are in a small town. I expect that you CHANGE your artical and get the truth out there before we look BAD!" (Needless to say, I almost died laughing!) Most of the Blacks are doing the same, they are seeing the truth about the Democrats. My best friend is black, her and her husband had a huge party at their house, they had invited a TON of friends from the "Slums" (that's what they call it.) ALL of them, HATE OBAMA! I mean HATE THAT MAN!! We were the only white people there lol they talked politics and they found out that We are Tea Party Patriots they laughed and looked at my BFF and said "So you bring two white people and they are of the "Racist" Tea Party." We all thought that was funny, they are members as well! Sooooo Obama can lie all he wants..BUT..the Truth is out there! Thanks to the Tea Party!! :D God Blessed American and we are helping him!
I would think this would come as no surprise,If any American Citizen would lie as much on such important information we would be in Trouble I say let us get the inevitable over with and give him a Gadhafi treatment, he is committing murder to America,and as one of the guards I am calling for his act of THREASON.And we don't wait till 2012 to let him do more destruction to America. Look at the socialist he has brought with him, IT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER FOR THEM,IF THEY WALKED OUT INSTEAD OF BEING CARRIED OUT FOR ALL TO SEE, THEY WOULD BE DISGRACED.BUT THATS OK BECAUSE THEY ARE A DISGRACE, . (DON'T FORGET BIDEN,SOROS.etc,etc)
