Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History

Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History


The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today.

Waving a planted press commentary, Obama recently claimed on the campaign stump, “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years.”

Peggy Noonan aptly summarized in last weekend’s Wall Street Journal the take away by the still holding majority of Americans living in the real world:

“There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration. It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents. This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s Presidency. People sneered: The President was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture! But you know, why would he go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”

What this shows most importantly is that the recognition is starting to break through to the general public regarding the President’s rhetorical strategy that I’ve have been calling Calculated Deception. The latter is deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture. That has been a central Obama practice not only throughout his entire presidency, but also as the foundation of his 2008 campaign strategy, and actually throughout his whole career.

Rest assured, Ms. Noonan, that the President is not as nuts as he may seem at times. He knows very well that he is not a careful spender. His whole mission is to transform the U.S. not into a Big Government country, but a Huge Government country, because only a country run by a Huge Government can be satisfactorily controlled by superior, all wise and beneficent individuals like himself. That is why he is at minimum a Swedish socialist, if not worse. Notice, though, how far behind the times he and his weak minded supporters are, as even the Swedes have abandoned Swedish socialism as a failure.

Wild Thing's comment..........

IMO there is a point where the right will not stand for anymore from Obama and all those threats from the left will look like a picnic if Obama is elected again. I have no idea what would happen, but one can feel it when talking to others about this election.

Imagine for a moment what a breeze, just how easy it would be if the head of household instead of working and struggling to be a provider could freely spend without any restraints, without having to answer to anyone. What an opportunity it would be to an example for others to look up to and to live up to.

Contrast that with the head of state we have in the White House who's had it so easy to govern with a compliant press/media without any restraints, just spend, spend, spend, spend, spend and spend even more that you don't even have.

—Preside over profligate never-before-seen deficit spending leaving future Americans with the burden of servicing trillions in public debt, as written in this post and article from Forbes, a cumulative sum more than any other government administration in the history of the world.

There shall be consequences to this with far-reaching ramifications not yet known.

In an already dangerous world, we cannot have peace abroad without prosperity at home.

This will be the legacy of this President living in denial and narcissism, as well as an example of just how not to govern.

American resiliency will be challenged like never before beginning next year.

Anyhow, to all the other American Dad's, a very happy Father's Day:

Most(all?) politicians lie. That may be from the influence of having so many lawyers in the political career field. For a lot of politicians lies are used mainly to get a point across or cover up a previous action. obama is a member of the group whose every utterance is an intentional lie. obama would go to the trouble of scaling the tallest tree to tell a lie when staying on the ground with the truth would serve him better. If obama says anything truthful it would be by error, and few people would believe him.
