Skip to comments.Is President Obama Mentally Competent - the $5 T Gaffe?
Posted on 10/09/2012 8:27:46 PM PDT by kathsua
President Barack Obama's obsession with a mythical Mitt Romney $5 trillion tax cut raises serious questions about Obama's mental health.
The federal government only receives about $1.2 trillion in total income taxes per year. There is no way a $5 trillion tax cut would be possible in the short term.
Congress would have to almost eliminate the income tax to produce a $5 trillion cut in 5 years. Cutting $500 billion a year would take 10 years to produce a $5 trillion cut. Cutting $250 billion a year would take 20 years to produce $5 trillion in cuts.
I considered the possibility Obama was deliberately lying, but why would an intelligent rational person use a lie that would be so easily exposed as a lie? Besides, Voice Analysis Technology used its audio technology to check the level of stress in the statements of both candidates and determined that both believed they were telling the truth.
The presidency is a high pressure job that can potentially destroy people. Many historians believe that the stress of heading an administration tainted by corruption killed President Warren G. Harding. Obama's obsession with an obviously non-existent tax cut proposal indicates he has apparently cracked under the pressure.
If Obama isn't living in the real world, he may not be able to respond appropriately in crisis situations.
With the recent Middle East crisis and the state of the world economy, we would expect our president to use the opening of the new session of the United Nations to meet with other world leaders. Instead, Obama decided to appear on "The View" talk show. He apparently is unaware that news stories about him meeting with world leaders would do more to help his presidential campaign than appearance on a talk show, even a talk show like "The View".
His most important recent accomplishment seems to be establishing a brewery in the White House. While he was showing off his brewery, he failed to check to see if American diplomatic facilities in the Middle East were prepared for possible 9/11 anniversary attacks. The result was a disastrous attack on the American consulate in Libya. Obama brewed beer while the Middle East burned.
Obama's separation from the real world may not be recent. Mark Bowden claims in his new book "The Finish" that in the event Osama bin Laden had been taken alive, Obama wanted him to be tried in American civil courts to demonstrate American due process. Shouldn't a Harvard Law School graduate have been aware that if that had been done, the first thing bin Laden's attorneys would have done would have been to request bin Laden's release on the grounds that his "arrest" without a judge authorized search warrant was illegal, particularly considering that the SEALs had entered Pakistan without permission of the Pakistani government? We should be doubly glad that the SEALs killed bin Laden instead of merely capturing him. If he had been captured the courts might have released him.
The British tabloids reported two years ago that Obama's doctor had recently told him he should cut down on his excessive drinking as well as his cigarette smoking. If President Obama is drinking excessively he is almost certainly an alcoholic, particularly considering that his father Barack Obama, Sr., was an alcoholic and his half brother George is an alcoholic. Alcoholism often has a connection to certain genes, especially the "risk taker" gene. If Obama is an alcoholic, he won't be able to simply cut back on alcohol consumption. His only option is to stop drinking completely.
Alcoholics often have trouble relating to the real world, but I'm doubtful that alcohol alone could explain such an obviously mythical claim that Mitt Romney wants a $5 trillion tax cut. Alcohol consumption might explain unwillingness to drop the tax cut subject and other aspects of his demeanor in the first debate, but probably not the development of the tax cut idea itself.
You said that cause you are a rrraaaacis!
Any other guilty whitey out there who want to be called a racist this evening?
Just ping me you dirty rrrraaaaacis! :)
I wonder about that Alfred E. Newman grin. It is inappropriately wide and makes me uncomfortable. Just doesn’t look quite right.
I’ll second that. I think it’s a totally fake smile and if u noticed during the debate, there was one moment near the end I think where the smile went on And then off within a second.
Apparently he uses it to gain some advantage over whomever he’s speaking to but Romney wasn’t buying it.
Naaa, Big Bird put on a John Kerry outfit and coached him and told him that he actually won the debate..
Actually whoever wins is gonna have to pay down that much!
“Any other guilty whitey out there who want to be called a racist this evening?”
How did you like your free cell phone?
Obama says things like that for a simple reason: he knows millions of Obamatons will swallow it whole. The great majority of Obamatons are clueless idiots who never read anything in the first place unless it’s a scandal sheet or a sports article. Obama’s not mentally ill (unless you consider every leftist mentally ill), he’s more just a shameless liar.
That Alfred Neuman smile is supposed to lock up peoples minds like as if you were flipped the bird, its actually an offensive weapon.
I’m white so I don’t get one. :)
Maybe because his smile and mannerisms are eerily similar to Malcolm X's. It's like watching Obama.
Dunno, maybe it's genetic, although Malcolm X was obviously much more intelligent and articulate than bumbling Barry the post turtle.
