Skip to comments.Dr. Obama and the Hypocrite's Oath

President Obama's preferred method of implementing his leftist agenda is to rush emergency, must-sign-yesterday bills through Congress. Forget about reading the legislation. Just trust Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and Barney Frank with the details.
The problem with this method is that when the details finally come out, it's too late for the people to do anything about it. President Obama's preferred method naturally fosters frustration and anger. Due to the economic "crisis," Obama and the far left element of the Democrat Party had to pass an emergency stimulus spending plan before anyone had time to read it. Afterwards, the public learned that the bulk of the emergency bill to save the economy in 2009 would not be implemented until 2010 and beyond. As the public learns of the legislation's massive waste and cronyism it is becoming apparent that the so-called stimulus was more about stimulating the power of the left than the economy.
Of course the rushed, crises-based legislation is just part of the whirlwind presidency of Obama. Mr. Obama has unconstitutionally appointed 32 czars and counting (including car and salary czars) and has exerted unprecedented government control over the auto, banking, and financial industries. In just six months the administration has more than quadrupled the national debt, passed a $787 billion spending spree, pushed cap and trade (tax) through the House in the dark of night and is feverishly pushing for a radical overhaul of the entire health care system. Obama is no doubt the most ideologically ambitious president in U.S. history. After all, he has a flawed country to fundamentally transform.
The key to understanding the public outrage at the town hall meetings is to understand that the outrage is multidimensional. It's not just about health care; it's about the audacity of Obama. How dare he speak of a new era of transparency as he tries to stuff more major, life-changing, yet unread legislation down our collective throat:
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. . . . Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing.
Obama has wrapped himself in so much B.S. that there is no way out any more.
Additionally Democrats will be a very rare species only found in the basement of Congress with only 5 members remaining from the whalloping they will get in 2012, 2010, 2014 and 2016.
The Senior citizens are already turning on the ONE ,wait until they see their Social Security Checks go down while this Jerk Is flying around on Air Force One to Marthas Vineyard ,The Grand Canyon , Flies his wife to Paris and New York ,His wife has 26 Assistants that Cost a Million and a Half Dollars and He hands out 5 to 8 Billion dollars to ACORN !AND that is only for starters
When do we get to reinstate the House on Un-American Activities Committee? Turn the spooks loose looking for all the cretin who did this to us. Hunt them to the ends of the earth. Remove all of them from power.
For those events I will settle in front of the “hated” TV and drag up the popcorn. (I do not watch TV)
