Obama Says 75% of the American People Agree With Him
Breitbart ^ | 2/21/13 | Debra Heine

Posted on 02/21/2013 9:17:38 PM PST by Nachum

In response to Obama: Cuts that Hurt the Economy are GOP's Raison D'etre:

Several outlets are noting Obama's comments on Al Sharpton's radio show, but the Free Beacon was kind enough to put it on You Tube...

(Trying to wrap my head around the fact that the President of the United States went on that ridiculous race hustler's radio show...ugh...so mortifying.)

But just listen to Obama. He says 75% of the American people agree with him, that the way to reduce our deficit sensibly is through his combination of spending cuts and tax revenue (but mostly tax revenue), as if saying so will make it true.

Since Republicans have already compromised on taxes, how does one square that with the Pew Research poll, John Hayward cited earlier:

70 percent of the American people, across the political spectrum, think deficit reduction is the top national priority... and 73 percent of them want it done mostly or entirely through spending cuts. Only 19 percent take the Obama position that the deficit should be reduced mostly or entirely through tax increases. (Then you'd have to factor in the people who agree with Obama's other, default position, which is that the deficit doesn't really matter.)

Here’s a poll question the November election didn’t address:

“How many people would rather see Obama in jail, than in the White House?”

Obama’s a serial liar. It’s his stock in trade and so far it seems to be working pretty well for him. I’m hoping this all doesn’t end well for him and he gets what he so richly deserves.

I guess it’s important to tell as big a lie as possible. When he eventually says the sky is polka-dotted, the liars at CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC will back him all the way.

Get the straight jacket out..he is totally delusional. He has crossed the line. In a sane Country, with an unbiased press, this guy would be forced into obscurity. He is out of his mind,drunk with power, wrapped in ego. Words can’t describe my hatred for this man. If he wasn’t President, he’d just be a silly nuisance. The fact he is President still angers me in a visceral way.

If this is true, why did the Kenyan Kommie and his Commie ‘RATS need their low information voters and drug addicts to vote 6 or 7 times each in order for the communists to win last November? Flake off Barry. You’re a Kommie loser. If November 6th had been an honest election, your @$$ would be unemployed right now.

So, Obozo takes yet another page from Adolf Hitler:

His (Hitler) primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.[7]

Barak Hussein (Hitler) Obozo is transforming into Heir Furher!!!

Oh, I thought we trusted him and just took his word for it. LOL! Yeah, right! You are correct for sure. Since we have no definitive proof, not only does it appear that he skipped all of his classes (don’t like to use the word class in the same sentence when referencing them), he may have skipped the whole university. Seriously, where are the ex-girlfriends/boyfriends (whichever) and why only a few dolts have come forward? And saying they kind of remember him. I could find someone that would swear they saw me on some campus somewhere. You used to be able to get pretty decent phony sheepskins out of the back of the comic books. ‘Cept this ain’t funny!

Is it possible the % sign was put there by mistake and the editors didn’t catch it(no shock these days) and they really meant 75 people agree with him and not 75%? That sounds more like it. That’s a number I could believe. As for the 97% of the black community that voted for him, they don’t care if (I guess there’s no “if” to it) he’s lying as long as he remains the first halfrican-American prez.
