President Vows to “Hammer Away at Key Issue of Campaign”
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 1 Sep 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 09/01/2012 8:35:28 AM PDT by John Semmens

President Obama renewed his assault on what he contends is the key issue of this campaign: transparency.

“People need to know who they’re voting for, a candidate’s life shouldn’t be a mystery,” the president said. “For months, Governor Romney has been ducking the question of how much he’s paid in taxes the last decade. How can he expect voters to elect him when he’s withholding information vital to their decision?”

“If you want to be president of the United States your life needs to be an open book,” Obama continued. “Crucial chapters shouldn’t be hidden from view. Attempts to divert voters’ attention from these matters by raising issues tangential to this core information should serve as a ‘red flag’ warning that the truth might be too ugly for general consumption.”

The president sought to contrast the “secrecy” of the Romney campaign with his own “full disclosure.” “My tax records are open for voters’ inspection,” Obama boasted. “I challenge my opponent to do the same.”

At the same time, President Obama rebuffed questions relating to his college transcripts, multiple Social Security numbers, and Selective Service records saying “not only is this information irrelevant to the decision facing voters, but it would be illegal to release records that have been sealed by a presidential order.”

This is the most hypocritical statement ever heard, second only to the specter of congress being upset because somebody lied to them.

I think that Hussein will not speak in public, or anywhere else for that matter, unless he is wearing fire retardant pants .... and his secret service guys are all armed with pocket fire extinguishers.

“When a man assumes a public trust he should consider himself a public property.”
Thomas Jefferson

How can we give someone out public trust without first having a knowledge of their private past?

(Zero had one of his low level bootlickers on Fox this morning with Neil Cavuto. This Obamabot proclaimed that everything is going so well and there has been 20-something months of job growth, and more new manufacturing jobs than anytime in our history under this administration. Surprisingly, this man’s pants did not spontaneously combust after his long rant of lies. Disappointingly, Cavuto did not dispute any of the ridiculous statements that man made.)

Writing for the Court, David Tatel pointed out that “the photo requirement is a heavier burden for both Blacks and Hispanics. Blacks are disproportionately in trouble with law enforcement authorities. Forcing them to identify themselves at the polls could increase the chances they could be arrested on outstanding warrants. Many Hispanics, on the other hand, are in the country illegally. Forcing them to identify themselves exposes them to the risk of deportation. It is obvious that the Texas voter ID burdens inflicted on these minority groups exceed those imposed on whites. The law is unequal in its effects and, therefore, invalid.”

LOL (You were kidding on this one, right John?)

Another fine column!

“People need to know who they’re voting for, a candidate’s life shouldn’t be a mystery,” the president said.

Usually John's "quotes" consist of what the person "quoted" would say if he was being honest: Kinsley gaffes. This time, John is in effect predicting a likely future Obama quote. The left's accusations are often confessions of what they themselves are doing.
