Skip to comments.Team Obama trying to unring the Obamaphone
Posted on 10/02/2012 12:09:22 PM PDT by dead
Up until the viral video of Obamaphone Lady appeared (Keep Obama in president, you know!), the webpage at obamaphone.net was all about how President Obama was giving all the poor people free phones. As if he was paying the bill, rather than us.
But now that the Obamaphone Lady has been exposing the program so effectively as a vote-buying giveaway to hate-filled societal leeches, the Obamaphone.net page has changed completely.
Guess what?! Obama has nothing to do with it! As you might expect, its Bushs fault, at least partially. The webpage that previously bragged about how much Obama was doing for the leeches, now says it was a program under Bush, that was started under Clinton in accordance with a law passed by FDR after an agreement with the phone companies was reached by Woodrow Wilson. Im not making that up, see for yourself. The new Obamaphone.net webpage was slapped together in the last few days, obviously without an editor in sight. It reads like a Chinese take-out menu for very happy family to you of good health for light!
Many people think that Obama is giving free cellphones to the poor in order to redistribute the wealth of rich people. Since then two groups are mudslinging at each other... But the Obama part is not true as Obama didnt initiate this program. Its on the run since the administration of Reagan It started back in 2008 when Trafcone started their service under this program at Tennessee. At the same year Obama was elected President but Trafcone began their Safelink service three months before which means the program was discussed and approved by Obamas predecessor Bush. So now you know that there is nothing called the Obama Phone! The president actually has no real impact on the program so it shouldnt be called Obama Phones. The Lifeline program for cell phones was actually started under President George Bush with grants from an independent company crated under president Clinton.
The changes have dishonestly been backdated to December 2011 to pretend it has nothing to do with the Obama Administration running away from the program they used to brag about. Unfortunately, I cant find the original obamaphone.net page that gave all the credit to Dear Leader. Its been wiped clean. Even archive.orgs Wayback Machine has been scrubbed!
With my limited skills, I have been unable to find an archived version anywhere. If any of you can, please post it to keep Obama in President, you know!
Ask not for whom the Obama phone rings, for it rings for thee Barry you bum.
Live by the handout, die by the handout.
This story makes me think of the hog farmer who got eaten by his own hogs. These Obama phone folks are the 700 lb hogs that Obama has been feeding. I have a feeling this group of hogs will turn around and eat old Bammy like hogs are known to do. And all the turning around in the world won’t help him one bit.
All I can think of is what they can do with those phones. MAN ON FIRE!
I've been trying to find out who the Obamaphone Lady is. As far as I know she hasn't been otherwise identified
She screams: "Everybody in Cleveland [unintelligible] minority got Obama phone! Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!"
I think the missing word is low, as in, "Everybody in Cleveland, low minority, got Obama phone!"
That woman was part of the SEIU campaign to follow Romney around, you bet they have Obama approval.
WOW!!! That is UNREAL what they did to that webpage! I remember looking at this page over a year ago when I first heard about it.
They will use them to organize flash mobs if Obama loses. And they’ll do the same if he wins.
I just found a cache of the page, but you better move quick: go to baidu.com (it’s a Chinese search engine, but safe) - you can type the search term in English. The Chinese lettering on the last line of the search result is the cached page - for obamaphone.net, it is currently 9/23/12 and it is the page we are looking for. I’m taking screenshots and will post later from home.
good work — it’s incredible (I don’t know why I keep saying that) that they totally changed the text, imaging and and “credit” about this program on the page that’s up there now at http://obamaphone.net/. I’m grabbing that one, too, in case it changes again.
He must be really putting pressure on that company to absolve him of any guilty credit.
Team Obama was perfectly willing to take all the credit available from the participants, but now that the taxpayers know about it, they are demanding to be disassociated from the program.
The new site also tells curious readers that the program is not paid for by taxes, but by fees collected by the phone companies from paying phone users because the government demands it. Somehow, that's not a tax.

Have you had a chance to read the pages of this site? Very poorly written, run on sentences, grammatical mistakes etc.
Who the hell put this web site up?
See my links above - the cache is still the old page, I just checked it. They are scrubbing them almost as fast as anyone can locate them - you’d think it was Watergate fingerprints?!?!
So when the next fair use lawsuit comes up, here is prima facie evidence that the capture of web-published information by a diverse audience has historical value and is of compelling public interest. With print media, especially newspapers, there are widespread hard copies and it is extremely difficult to pull them back to obscure the record. We need - and deserve - nothing less for web media.
When I first loaded the newly scrubbed site, there was a photo of a pine cone as the header photo - which I found odd.
Now it is back to the old format with O’s picture.
I GOT THEM ALL GRABBED! Will post them ASAP!
Wow! Great work, everyone. Hannity, Rush, even BOR need to see this. We need to spread this around as much as possible. Of course, all Zero has to do is tell the “news” media not to cover this story and the sheeple will never hear of it.
Several months ago I saw a sign up in my local post office telling how you can get a FREE PHONE from the Government if you meet certain conditions.
Last check showed the sign gone.
Thanks for posting these screen shots!
“During the Bush administration, there was the introduction of a project that gave subsidies to those who could not afford a phone.”
Bush’s fault! I knew it !!!!
Thanks for grabbing and posting those. My office computers are all Windows based - it takes me forever to get anything done other than accounting.
Someone needs to do a video of Obamaphone meets the “Call Me Maybe” song...
So if you have an income of $30,172.00, you qualify. (135% of $22,350.00).
Who cares about freedom when you can get free stuff?
George William Bush? Geez, I thought we’ve had enough George Bush presidents. And now I find out there was another one. So, the cellphone give away was a Woodrow Wilson program? Interesting.
I've listen to the tape about five times, and the 0bama girl said "fool stamps." Smart lady.
Wow! Is this for real? I was attributing the “Obama Phone” phrase to the fact that the woman in the video was clearly an Epsilon sub-minus and was probably using ghetto talk for a government cell phone program. I knew that the program had started under Bush - as a way to provide limited emergency phone service to elderly rural people or people in poor urban areas where there were no or few pay phones - and morphed under Barry to a giant give-away to his selected constituency.
But I didn’t realize it was really called “THE OBAMA PHONE.” Gads. Talk about bread and circuses.
Full of grammatical errors - hmmm, have you ever seen a letter from the average public school teacher?
This just killed me.
Obama foam is the froth from the mouths of adoring Obamatron zombies at an Obama town hall.
Who is George William Bush?
Now I wish I’d have kept the app I was sent...
These Obamaphones are actually destined for the Muslim Brotherhood. You see the Taliban and Al Qaeda need them as switching devices for their IEDs.
You know...ring-a-ding, ding................BOOM!
All subscribers must turn them in after Nov. 6 so they can be shipped to Bengazi. ( Its a program called Son of Fast & Furious.)
