Seven Of The Most Disturbing Quotes From Members Of The Obama Administration
Townhall.com ^ | April 28, 2012 | John Hawkins

Posted on 04/28/2012 5:31:19 AM PDT by Kaslin

Birds of a feather flock together and so when we see Barack Obama stacking his cabinet with radicals, it tells us a lot about his mentality. Of course, the fact that his entire term in office has been nothing but a slow motion evisceration of the American dream should tell you a lot about how he thinks, too -- but a little more evidence is always welcome. Take a look at these quotes from members of Barack Obama's administration and then ask yourself what sort of man WANTS people like this to help him govern the American people?

1) "Somewhat more broadly, I will suggest that animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives, to prevent violations of current law." -- Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama Administration. Yes, we have someone in charge of regulations in D.C. who thinks pigs should be able to sue farmers and cats should be able to sue their owners. Do you think it's a coincidence that the cost of business keeps skyrocketing under Obama because of all the new regulations?

2) "Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’ The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you." -- Joe Biden, Vice President. When this is how the Vice President of the United States thinks, is it any wonder that this country may only be a decade away from defaulting on our debts and heading into an economic death spiral that we'll never recover from in the lifespan of anyone reading this column?

3) "There’s a different leader in Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer." -- Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State. Yes, the butcher of Syria is a real "reformer," isn't he? If you want to know why our foreign policy has been all bowing, "leading from behind," and chaos, look no further than our Secretary of State who knew nothing about foreign policy going in, but made a career out of being married to the right man.

4) "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards." -- Eric Holder, Attorney General. Eric Holder is a throwback to the bad old days in America, when whether you got justice or not depended on the color of your skin. Is it any wonder he doesn't care about Mexicans or a white border patrol agent who lost his life because of Operation Fast and Furious? Is it a surprise that Holder turned a blind eye to the New Black Panthers engaging in voter intimidation and putting a bounty on George Zimmerman's head?

5) "When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — (Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering." -- Charles Bolden, NASA Administrator. When Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, he said, "That's one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind." Well, while Obama goes on and on about "investment," "science," and "the future," we've actually taken one giant leap backwards since we no longer have a manned space program. Guess we needed to save that money to funnel into the businesses of people who contribute to Obama's campaign.

6) "One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition of the relative difficulty of raising children alone. It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society." -- John Holdren, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology. So, we have a man with the morals of Joseph Mengele advising the President on science. It also shouldn't be lost on anyone that while Obama is yammering on about a "war on women," he has someone on his staff who has come out in favor of FORCED ABORTIONS.

7) "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." -- Steven Chu, Energy Secretary. Ever wonder why gas prices are so high under Obama? Could it be because Obama's Energy Secretary wants to dramatically increase the price of gas? Gas is more than $8 a gallon in most of Western Europe. Guess that gives them something to shoot for if Obama gets a second term.

Scary thing is we all know here there are more than these 7 said things that causes this administration to be so frightening to our liberties. It is still so hard to fathom the idiocy of the American public that put this man in office.

That gem fell out of Leon Panetta’s capacious mouth, if I’m not mistaken.

Not that I would ever agree with anyone in the 0bama Regime, but no manned program, so what?
I wholeheartedly supported all of the space projects since Day 1.
But after 30 years of spending billions and billions on the Space Shuttle, WTF do we the taxpayers have in return? NADA.

Apparently you are not informed. We have gained all kinds of new materials because the shuttle was built and used. There are additional improvements in communications technologies and in some medical areas that have been made.

Just because you don’t see them trumpeted in the headlines doesn’t mean they aren’t there

So according to you, the 'gubmint gave us all these wonderful things that are SO wonderful you couldn't even name ONE specifically.
Even if what you said was true, I guarantee the private market would have invented/produced them cheaper and faster .... and the taxpayers would still have billions and billions of dollars in their pockets.

Well it could be argued that most of the innovations of the last half of the 20th century were a result of the space program. Everything from the PC to the GPS not to mention things like teflon , food preservation techniques all came about originally from the space program.

0'Dumbo always talks about gubment investing and innovation, but historically that's never worked. The only innovations that ever came from government were through the military in war time and the space program because of competition with the USSR. The reason being because the government was in a war (or a space race). The competition wouldn't allow them to fund boondoggles like Solyndra or the Chevy Volt. In a war the government is forced to create results. From there you get innovations like the Internet and the miniaturization of computers.

Our space program was the best in the world. We lead in space science that help change the world for the better. NASA had the cream of the crop in minds and ability.
Now thanks to Obama, It's “Let's make Muslims feel better about themselves.”
History will write.... If we survive his leadership, That Obama was the greatest failure that this country has ever seen. That his leadership was EVIL and his purpose was to bring this country to it's knees and then lope of it's head.

Hillary made the statement that she much more preferred the English parliamentary system to our representative type and that we should move toward a system close to that.
Big problem with that. England does not have a Constitution.

While I despise Hillary's politics, I won't fault her for saying this. Diplomacy is like poker, and a lie or a bluff is fair in that game. Unless we have reason to believe that Syria's "democratic uprising" is all unicorns and skittles like the mainstream media claim, she's right to say whatever she needs to say to justify staying out of that war. We don't have a dog in that fight, and I'm happy to see her recognize that important fact.

You're absolutely right here. Personally, I'm quite happy with them slaughtering each other. While they're busy doing that, they're not going to be trying to rebuild their nuclear program (which Israel thankfully destroyed - I just hope that it killed a bunch of Iranian and NORK scientists).

The shuttle gave humans great experience in living and working in space which was always designed and sold to us as a stepping stone to the Moon, Mars and beyond. Most if not all of the other projects only whetted that appetite.

Though if you don’t buy this then it would seem you must be content in that soetoro has essentially shut, or is gradually shutting them down.

When the Hubble Space Telescope looked back into the earliest history of the universe that we have ever yet seen, I was, and am yet thrilled to witness the workings of God across that space and time.

To me, at least, this has been one of the greatest returns on our tax money in our whole history. But alas, it is no more. That’s a great tragedy for the whole human race.

It was from Vietnam too that I first looked up at the Moon and knew there were people out there.

Thanks for your service.

Well like Herman Cain said, it’s time to get the stupid out of Washington. Having a Constitutional amendment requiring ALL elected officials to submit to random drug testing 4 times a year wouldn’t be bad either after reading these quotes, especially with Hillary Clinton and those bizarre facial tics of hers .
