Obama wants YOU to buy a car
Posted by: Steve Holland Tags: Front Row Washington, autos, Barack Obama, Chrysler, GM, IRS
AUTOS-OBAMA/President Barack Obama is now Americas car salesman.
Obama made his sales pitch on Monday as he laid out White House plans for restructuring the struggling auto giants General Motors and Chrysler. Buy a car, he said, and you might qualify for a tax deduction.
The IRS is launching a campaign to alert consumers of a new tax benefit for auto purchases made between February 16th and the end of this year if you buy a car anytime this year, you may be able to deduct the cost of any sales and excise taxes. And this provision could save families hundreds of dollars and lead to as many as 100,000 new car sales, Obama said.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs followed up on this theme a bit at his daily briefing saying Obama absolutely would prefer for Americans to buy U.S.-made cars.
I dont want to turn this into an advertisement, he said,

I think I’ll stay with Toyota.
My brother bought a Ford. Go buy a Ford pickup.
Why doesn’t the US Gov’t just buy up all “excess capacity” Auto manufacturers can muster? This would be the easy solution.
Not only will it benefit auto co’s and their unions, but imagine how much money would be pumped into the storage facility sector!
I’m at the point where I will do exactly the opposite of what Zer0 wants.
What if I want to buy an F250 Ford Truck...do I still get the rebate/tax-break since I’d be buying it from the evil-capitalist Ford (who refused the bail-out) and it’s also friendly with the gas pumps?
Something tells me the new Camaro wouldn’t be “eco-friendly” enough to qualify for the (potential) tax deduction.
I think I’ll just stick with my current Z28. (which is green, ironically)
Don’t we already get to deduct sales tax? Did Timmy advise him on this one?
I don’t care what 0bama wants. I love my truck and since they don’t make the Sonoma anymore I will probably stick with my truck for the next 10 years at least if I continue to take good care of it.
No thanks. Our used ones run just fine.
If this Dumb A$$ C in C wants us to buy cars it is simple. Let us right off the taxes and the interest on the note. NO! not for a year but for the life of the loan. He does not want to save us he just wants power.
I’ve got two F150s in my family.
Ford should recommend Matt Millen as the next CEO for GM.
a lot of Toyota’s are American made.
Maybe I will. Ford.
no, Obama is going to run the auto company like he runs the economy, seeing as he believes that raising taxes will increase revenues I have no doubt that he will raise car prices so that he can make more from each vehicle they sell
An interesting email sent to me.
Subject: The ultimate Narcissist
Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.
Dr. Vaknin States “I must confess I was impressed by Sen.Barack Obama
from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black
candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident -
a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because
of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in
his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were
louder than his empty words.
Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such quasi “religious” impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable
infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius.
In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.”
Barack Obama is a narcissist.
Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes “Barack
Obama appears to be a narcissist.” Vaknin is a world authority on
narcissism. He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a
narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone
Vaknin says that Obama’s language, posture and demeanor, and
The testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that the
Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality
Disorder (NPD). Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves.
Jim Jones< /SPAN, the charismatic leader of People’s Temple, the man who
Led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even
murder their own children was also a narcissist.
David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao,Kim Jong Il, and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time.
All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers. They created a
personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches
elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and
instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope!
They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to
Their doom. When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don’t know
it until it is too late.
One determining factor in the development of NPD
Is childhood abuse.
“Obama’s early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic
and mentally bruising dislocations,” says Vaknin. “Mixed-race marriages
were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was
an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before
he died in a car accident. Then his mother re-married and Obama had to
relocate to Indonesia , a foreign land with a radically foreign
culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off
to live with his maternal (white)grandparents. He saw his mother only
intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from
his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995”.
One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological
narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it
overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people
become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight
to be at his service.
The narcissist shapes the world around himself
and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of
personality. His admirers become his co-dependents. Narcissists have
no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal
objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power. All
other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste
their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is
beneath them and do not deserve their attention.
If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or
another, he has no interest in it. The “present” vote is a safe vote.
No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by
their very nature because they are not about him. Obama’s election as
the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and
advance to write a book about race relations.
The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than
expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what? His own
autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race
relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing
about his most sublime self. He entitled the book Dreams from My
Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when
he was still nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as
important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and
genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such
an august being as himself? Narcissists are often callous and even
As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama’s lack
of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.
A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in
Hawaii, and who has raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign
(something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of
his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent
A narcissist cares for no one but himself. This election is like no
other in the history of America . The issues are insignificant compared to
what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of
conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his
fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?
I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are
narcissists. They pose no threat to others...They are simply self serving
Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is
different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill
Clinton for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a
Mental health issue, not just a character flaw. Pathological narcissists are
dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this
disguise that makes them treacherous.
Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man
could put an end to their party. The great majority of blacks have
also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their
support for him is racially driven. This is racism, pure and simple. The
downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he
will cause widespread resentment among the whites.
The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic
mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heels deeper
in the sand and blame Obama’s detractors of racism. This will cause a
backlash among the whites.
The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they
will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years,
racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent
Obama will set the clock back decades... America is the bastion of
freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America ,
and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of
It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the
Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and
virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect
of their man in the White House. America is on the verge of destruction.
There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist
