The Serial Double-Crosser
The American Thinker ^ | 6-29-10 | Eileen F. Toplansky

Our 44th president did it again. He suckered another group into his spider's web, promised them that they would be immune to any adverse results to their respective interests and then Obama turned on them with a pointed viciousness.

So it happened this time with the Business Roundtable. Though the Business Roundtable executives had agreed to support a pro-tax, pro-regulation Obama program, this did not save them any taxes and only engendered more governmental regulation.

Mr. Seidenberg, chairman of the influential Business Roundtable, was shocked that even though he and his fellow CEOs had worked closely with the Obama administration to push Obamacare, the reward for their capitulation was more regulations and policies that have now created a "hostile environment" for job creation.

They held up their part of the deal but the government punished them with anti-business regulations designed to damage the economy. Now the Roundtable finds itself in the same quagmire as other groups who thought that if they just went along with Obama, they would be spared his scimitar.

Thus, another Faustian deal has been made. This evil regime arrogantly promises various groups that they will benefit as long as they toe the Obama line. Perhaps the American public should reread the legend about Faust ~ how many more groups will Obama trick as they sign a pact with the devil?

Lest one think this is merely an exception to the rule, check out the article "The Lies of Obama" at FrontPage. Lies of Obama Dated January 2010 the piece contains twenty-nine lies of Obama up to that time. The continuing lies are making a mound that could be used to plug the BP hole. And because he gets little to no resistance, Obama brazenly continues with these prevarications. A few of the deceptions in January included

In order to pass the first stimulus bill, Obama said Medicare would not be cut. In fact, cuts will be made.

Although Obama promised growth in the private sector, the increase of jobs is in the public sector.

Obama claimed he would limit earmarks but, in fact, there have been larger and more earmarks than ever before.

Obama was adamant that he would appoint no lobbyists to his administration. He appointed more lobbyists than his predecessors.

Obama criticized the size of George Bush's deficit ~ yet he has quadrupled the size of the deficit.

When campaigning, he was critical of bills that were too long for anyone to read and properly analyze; his bills are incredibly longer (2000+ pages) than the ones he originally criticized.

Though he claimed his administration would be transparent, Obama has maintained an unprecedented level of secrecy towards the American public. Requests for Obama to honor the promise of C-Span cameras during the final stages of Obamacare were ignored.

Obama coerced Congress into passing his stimulus bill by promising that unemployment could go no higher than 8%. Unemployment is now at 10% and Vice President Biden recently stated that eight million jobs are irretrievably lost.

But can one really blame Obama? Being deceitful is part of his being. Obviously he will never honor any promises that he makes that do not accrue to his long range desires. But why do people delude themselves and think they will not find themselves on the short end of the stick when they deal with him? Perhaps they should dust off their elementary school reader and study Mary Howitt's poem.

"Will you walk into my parlor?" said the spider to the fly; "'Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy... "O no, no," said the little fly, "To ask me is in vain, For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."

Pure Chicago politics! They should have examined his record and history in Chicago as a senator....what he did and did not do.

I have NO sympathy for them.

Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and sent to Gitmo to rot with his muslim buddies.

Yep. Also no birth certificate; no law license which includes his wife having no law license.

I doubt seriously he will be around for 2012 elections.

It woul be appropriate for all who oppose Obama to bring a recording of a baby crying to every Obama event they can attend.

There’s nothing at all unusual or unpredictable about this. All anybody had to do was read a little of the history of the Soviet Union and how Lenin and Stalin gained complete power. They did it exactly the same way, by making fake alliances with people whom they needed and, once the usefulness of the targeted individual was over, they destroyed that individual or group and went on to the next, repeating the process over and over until they’d achieved total victory. It’s standard communist practice and the Illegal is a complete, full blown, deep red America and American hating communist.

Double crossing, lying, etc are the methods the left uses to gain power. As leftists gain more power and more people realize what they are doing lying is used as a adjunct to a strategy of brute force. Thug politics, secret police, gulags and murder become the strategy. We are still in the lying and deception stage.

Read your history. These are the tactics every socialist/leftist regime uses to gain power. This is the only thing that works for them.
