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With my limited skills, I have been unable to find an archived version anywhere.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!
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.)
Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you! Call this number on your new phone and ask it!
In the Sept 15 version, text sums it up: “So now you know that there is nothing called ‘the Obama phone’.”- but then EVERY SINGLE LINK, top and sides, all still used “Obama phone”: Obama Phone Signup, Obama Phone Questions, How do I Get an Obama Phone, etc, and [my favorite] Who Pays for the Obama Phone? — DOH!!
Nothing was showing up just now when I went to Obamaphone.net — which is not surprising, since there is “nothing called the Obama phone”.
Incredible! These pages were up and down in a heartbeat, all at the same URL!
Apparently the guy who came up with the Obamaphone program!
“During the Bush administration, there was the introduction of a project that gave subsidies to those who could not afford a phone.”
Was it called a Bush phone then? Anyone know? I never heard of it.
Spelling errors, too. Drives me nuts!
...and this one: “Its on the run since the administration of Reagan.”
I think the “All your bases are belong to us” guy is doing websites now.
