President Obama reveals who he really is -- and this picture isn't pretty
Fox News ^ | 1/23/2012 | By Michael Goodwin

Posted on 01/24/2012 3:48:50 AM PST by tobyhill

By rejecting the Keystone XL oil pipeline, President Obama did more than just pander to environmentalists. He shredded attempts by his handlers to cast him as a pragmatic and reasonable man who can appeal to independent voters.

Instead, he stands naked as an ideologue willing to sacrifice workers on the altar of special-interest politics.

Thousands of jobs were cast aside with no more thought than yesterday’s socks. Demolished, too, is the promised commitment to energy independence.

The $7 billion pipeline would carry Canadian oil to Gulf Coast ports. Despite three years of study by the State Department, Obama tried to put off the decision until after the election.

But Canada offered to change the route to avoid an aquifer in Nebraska, and unions demanded to know whether he would approve a permit, so Republicans put a 60-day deadline in December’s payroll-tax legislation.

Now we have undeniable proof of the president’s priorities. The man who insisted that “making sure jobs are available is the first thing I think about when I wake up every morning” was just reading empty words from a TelePrompter.

Obambi wants to turn us into a third world country. Not only to possibly rule it longer than eight years but to put us in our place.

He hates the United States and any aspect of freedom and liberty.

He actually thinks he is smarter than us and that he should rule every part of our lives.

Rush had a caller yesterday who said the pipeline decision decided him against voting for Obama this year even though he’s a lifetime Democrat and voted for him in 08. He’s a truck driver and he’s black.

I heard that! People who voted for Obama last time are waking up! The scales are falling off the eyes and people are seeing Obama for who he really is.

What an engorged ego.

Only the colossal self confidence of someone like Newt Gingrich could laugh off Obama’s continual fountain of B.S. It would wear any ordinary mortal down. And so Newt has a checkered record? All he has to do is ask Obama whether he has a record at all!

NOW let’s see what the unions do with the money. If they continue to support him, it will prove that they care less about the membership than 0bambi does.

And for anyone not yet decided, the $5 gas this spring and summer will clarify things even more.

Yes, Obama has a record of failure, and Newt a record of accomplishment.

And Obama could end up seeing a second American revolution as a result that is reaped.

Obambi more than WANTS to turn us into a third world country; we are THERE, my friend. It was bad when he took office; it is many, many times worse todayl

I’d like to thank in advance those with enough tolerance and gumption to watch the ultimate loser (aka, nobama) this evening. Only through reading the thread on FR can I stomach this grifter-president and his bilge.

Unfortunately we still have far too many ignorant souls out there. The only reading they do is the numbers on the gas pump.

All things of OBAMA are yet to be revealed: his real mother and father, his schooling, his financial backers, his preparation for the destruction of America....all of him is really unknown, but it will not be good.

Goodnes, beauty, truth, freedom, allegiance to our flag and republic and to our God are not in Obama's heart.

Cling to your Constitution, your God, and your gun because hard times that will test us, lie ahead.

They'll simply blame the oil companies and setup "windfall profit" committees.

You don’t hear obama talking about confiscating Google’s “excessive” profits. The value of its stock price is six times that of any oil company. They are giving him free campaign advertising. Everyone else pays by the click.

Obama didn’t even have the decency to explain himself, sending out a lame statement that hinted he wasn’t making a decision on the merits, only reacting to the deadline.
I pretty much said the same thing on Saturday.

"It is all about the imposed deadline, not the pipeline."

And Goodwin didn't even mention Shrillary!'s role in all of this. She is just as much to blame.
I've already posted to you my speculations on that.

and Newt was the turning point, by saying that Obama’s decision was stupid.
