The Astounding Hypocrisy of Barack Obama (With Addendum)

Hat tip to Mike's America for the following video of Obama's remarks to the House GOP Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, on January 29, 2010:

Mike comments:
Since then, Republicans won big in the November 2010 election and came back to Congress with multiple plans to address the budget, debt and entitlements. The response from Obama and the Democrats has been to demagogue GOP plans using every scare tactic in the book, like pushing Grandma off the cliff, and even some new ones (like Obama's veiled threat to withhold Social Security checks).
These kinds of inconsistencies in Obama's past and present statements need to be brought to the fore.

Must-read addendum below the fold:

With thanks to Z:
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better.

More from that same speech is HERE.


  1. I love how that guy stands there and talks about "the politicians" as if he is not the king of them, and political agendas, as if Sir Hope and Change has none.

    The man is a transparent fool, and I am cautiously optimistic that more Americans are seeing through him.

  2. About the only people that do not see through him is the majority of our black population.

    I posted not long ago about a co-worker (black female) who was going on about Bush's "illegal wars" and I inquired to her about a real illegal war Obama got us into,,,she had no clue.

    Really, no clue about Libya at all, where it was, that we were bombing and people dying or even who Col. Qaddafi is.

    It is not a question of bring information to the fore as it is there. It is up to real Americans to bring it to those who do not seek it out on their own.

  3. Re: the intransigent calls of Tyrannus Obamus for additional revenues as a part of any debt ceiling deal---“Revenue” is what the statist calls the money that he has stolen from you. Elsewhere, it is known as “evidence”.

  4. thanks for the 'thanks', AOW..this quotation is so important. Just picture if a Republican had said that and was now doing what Obama's doing!!? HAA!! The media'd have it in six inch headlines!

    I'm with SF...I honestly do think people are waking up and seeing thru Obama; but his war chest is HUGE and growing. I just saw a piece on the new Republican gov of Maine and how conservative he is in quite a liberal state, that's a very reassuring happening, don't you think? And the 2010 elections?

    "Let us pray........" :-)

  5. He is a classic believer in the dialectic though Marx so loved.

  6. Do as I say, not as I do. It's a classic

  7. Where is YOUR plan today, Mr. President? Much easier to lamblast everyone else's plans than to actually Lead with your own plan.
