Skip to comments.If Obama Had Told Us Before His Election
Posted on 10/13/2009 8:44:16 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross
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)

Isn't this enough for impeachment?
But DIDN'T he tell us he was going to do a lot of what he is doing?
Just like Hitler with Mein Kampf. It was all there. For those with eyes who cared to see.
Yeah, right in time for the 2010 elections.
You’re spot on.
The evidence was all there.
This guy was the most liberal senator, documented.
Many did not pay attention.
Hopefully next time will be a better result.
Pray for gridlock in 2010.
Barack Obama has a truckload of problems on his hands. He has enacted policies that fit the description of impeachable offenses. He can be thankful that Congress is controlled by his partners-in-crime, or else he would be facing serious charges.

First, the GOP nomination process produced (and may have been designed to produce) a candidate that provided little appeal or opposition to Obama’s stated domestic aims and ran one of the most feeble campaigns ever.
Second, too many suffering from “Bush fatigue” saw in the empty vessel that was Obama’s public image whatever they wanted to see. Those who took the time to look beyond the mainstream media that eagerly flacked for Obama saw the warning signs. Sadly, too few bothered.
National Journal ranked him as the most liberal Senator in the Senate-even more liberal than the self-proclaimed socialist, Bernie Sanders of Vermont. People who thought he was some moderate who would govern from the center were kidding themselves.
I agree with your two issues, but again this did not happen overnight! This was a culmination of multiple errors on the part of the Repugs (bad fiscal policy on the domestic front, Bush’s refusal to defend himself from BLATANT lies and distortions, bad nomination process, feeble campaign, prevalent RINO feelings throughout, etc...) and the Dems pushing (false “empty vessel” status on Obama, McCain = Bush = Conservative = Bad, their “Socialism is next to Godly” message, Repugs want to remove your “right” to their money, etc...).
This was not a one issue item; it was the straw that broke the camel’s back!!
“Weirdly enough, this is one of the rationales the Chinese have on these huge billboards justifying mandatory abortions (after the first child).”
I just read an article that there is such an imbalance of males through “selective” abortions that there are more than 30 million who are marrying age with not enough wives to go around...
that's what's so discouraging.
And also why history has all but disappeared from the schools - without knowing what steps lead to what, which is WHY history is not longer taught, REAL history - we are doomed to repeat it.
BTW, did you know that Winston Churchill has be deleted from UK school books?
I send my kids to Catholic school and teach ‘em history at home.
I don't think it's such a huge problem. More and more, East Asian societies without this gender imbalance are staying single. Anyone who wants to get married will be able to get a spouse, provided he has the financial means to do so. The problem is that the trend towards the single life is becoming epidemic throughout East Asia (except for the Muslim portions, which are breeding like rabbits). For instance, in Japan:
Most single Japanese women prefer not to marry and believe they can live happily alone for the rest of their life, a poll showed Friday, casting another shadow on the future of a country plagued by a falling birthrate.
About seven in ten single Japanese women surveyed by the conservative Yomiuri newspaper said they would rather stay unwed.
Prior to the adoption of Western-style laws banning polygamy and bond slavery roughly a century ago (together with the collapse of the last declared Chinese dynasty), Chinese men had it far worse. Rich men hoovered up a good chunk of the available women, and bottom strata pretty much had to make do with renting by the hour.
Phyllis Schlafly is one of the intellectual giants on the American scene, and her ability convey her point so effectively in this fashion is a graphic affirmation of that fact.
The fact that most liberals dismiss her as a lightweight irrelevancy tells us all we need to know about liberals and their religion of liberalism.
Agreed, he was elected by the fraud of ACORN. But even to this very day people are afraid to say this outloud for fear of being called a racist. We have been taken from within.
I don’t think that his rabid and insane voters would have changed their votes if they knew about what we know now.
They would have called the presenters of the info, racists.
Thank you for an intelligent post that hits the nail on the head.
This Obama mess is the fault of Americans who didn’t pay attention or who are too shallow and morally bankrupt to understand the threat he posed.
If we’re to get out of this mess, we must quit blaming “media,” (which, by definition, includes any method by which you receive information, including FR and talk radio) and start taking responsibility ourselves to reclaim this country.
Yes, we should reclaim this country and we are. People are wide awake believe me.
BUT... (always a but huh?) ACORN stole the election for 0bama.This is a fact.
Moderate Independent voters were asleep at the helm and voted for the false messiah.
Based on the number of voters who were in love and didn’t care what anyone was saying, I think it might have been a bit closer, but we would still be where we are today.
