Skip to comments.If Obama Had Told Us Before His Election

If Barack Obama had campaigned on what he has actually done in his first 300 days in office, would he have been elected? That's the question so many are asking today.
If Obama had told us he would appoint 34 czars, reporting only to himself and not vetted or confirmed in the constitutional way, building a powerful unitary executive branch of government, would he have been elected? What if he had told us that his green jobs czar had been a Communist, that the science czar wrote in a college textbook that compulsory "green abortions" are an acceptable way to control population growth and that the diversity czar has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to "step down" in favor of minorities?
If Obama had told us he would take over the automobile industry faster than any socialist dictator ever nationalized an industry, fire the CEO of General Motors and replace him with a Democratic Party campaign contributor, would Obama have been elected? If Obama had campaigned on closing down thousands of profitable car dealers, nearly all Republicans, would we have believed that this vindictive financial retaliation against those who didn't vote for Obama could happen in America?
If Hugo Chavez, the communist who nationalized most of Venezuela's industries, had said before the election that "Comrade Obama" would nationalize the U.S. automobile industry and Chavez would "end up to his right," would anybody have believed it?(snip)
If Obama had declared during his campaign that his first major speech abroad would be to the Muslim world and that he would proclaim in Muslim Turkey that "one of the great strengths of the United States is ... we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation," would he have been elected? (snip)

No. With a negative 8 versus a positive 20 at the start?
“If Barack Obama had campaigned on what he has actually done in his first 300 days in office, would he have been elected? That’s the question so many are asking today.”
Someone wasn’t paying attention in class...he is doing EXACTLY what he said he would...he is fundamentally changing America and spreading the wealth around...
ACORN is the answer to Zero’s election and all that they pulled.
He did, among his core constituents on the Left.
He lied to everyone else, including religious black Christians who are socially conservative and oppose abortion and same sex relations.
Millions were just ready to oblige, they were mighty happy to be lied to and welcomed any opportunity to get around any inconvenient revelations. Too bad, we all will pay for this.
“Someone wasnt paying attention in class...he is doing EXACTLY what he said he would...he is fundamentally changing America and spreading the wealth around...”
That’s right. We didn’t know much about obama before the election, but what we did know was frightening - and he’s living up to every campaign promise he made.
The question should be “If the American people had not allowed themselves to be sweet-talked by a cool guy with bad friends and no accomplishments, would obama have been elected?”
In 2012 he’ll have to run on what he’s done. If by then we’re not living in a socialist utopia, conservatives and conservatism could rise again.
“.he is doing EXACTLY what he said he would...he is fundamentally changing America and spreading the wealth around...”
Yes, for those who were listening, his message was clear. As for the rest, all they heard was “hope and change.” And they hated Bush. And they wanted to cleanse their white guilt. And with all the vote fraud that occurred, I don’t believe he really had a majority of the voters behind him.
Actually, he told us everything he stands for,
but the media refused to report it,
and his followers refused to acknowledge it when confronted.
EVERYthing was visible and available - Much straight out of his mouth, So the question is: If Americans had done their homework, would he have been elected?
I pray Americans will do more to learn the facts instead of depending on what a sycophant media feeds them -
America needs only look in the mirror to see whose fault this mess is...
He did tell us and a slight majority didn’t listen.
Unfortunately, I believe he would have been elected (maybe by a narrower margin) anyway.
BO told us exactly what he was going to do, the chumps who voted for him were not listening. The Republican Party was not listening either, they gave us McCain...and the rest is history!
If you weren't there life to witness and you don't subscribe to talk radio, FreeRepublic or to a lesser extent Fox news, how would you know about his Marxist associations?
Regardless, he's not shy about who he is now. He's in our face as he promised. He tells his followers, "they can't stop us" and he believes it.
He's at least giving us a chance to fight.
Well you know, it's not like there was no information out there that was being shouted to obviously stupid, dense, and obstinate people. But they chose to ignore it; "by g-d we're gonna vote democrat and to hell with evidence. We hate Bush, We HATE Palin (she spent $150K on clothes afterall!)".......well, the chickens are coming home to roost, aren't they (and it looks like the chickens aren't going to be discriminatory about whose roost they light in)
Oh, please, Phyllis, stop with the buyer’s remorse routine. Only the ignorant didn’t know what they were purchasing with Obammy. A gift wrapped package of Marxism.
If there was nothing sinister about forcing socialism on America, he wouldn’t have had to lie about it and had the pravda media echo “this isn’t socialist”.
Eventually his only response was to say “but we already have medicare et al...” as a way of saying “you’ve already got SOME socialism, have some more, you’ll like it if only you try it...
Weirdly enough, this is one of the rationales the Chinese have on these huge billboards justifying mandatory abortions (after the first child).
For anyone to claim they didn’t know what Obama would do if elected demonstrates to me that they weren’t paying attention.
