Here are 79 examples of Barack Obama’s corruption, lying, lawbreaking, and cronyism.

Here are 79 examples of Barack Obama’s corruption, lying, lawbreaking, and cronyism.

1) In April 2009, antiwar activists who helped elect Obama accused him of using the same “off the books” funding as his predecessor George W. Bush when Obama requested an additional $83.4 billion from Congress for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – a provision which Obama had voted against when he was a Senator.

2) In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011 for military support services in Iraq, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of taking kickbacks from two subcontractors on Iraq-related work.

3) While running for President, Obama had promised that he would not have any lobbyists working in his administration. However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration.

4) Although Obama claims to support the Occupy Wall St. movement, the truth is that he has raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate during the last 20 years.

I don’t know why it makes such a big difference which forum it’s posted in?
Every post shows up on http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/*/index

Are there really that many people navigating straight to http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/news-forum/index
?

A thread’s exposure is more of a function of people bumping it (as I am now). You can put a thread in Breaking News, and it won’t generate responses if people simply don’t care to do so.

Dems (including 0bama) would never win except in the most corrupt areas if they told the truth about what they wanted to do with taxpayers money. 0bama was never vetted in 2008 by the media and we as conservatives need to keep that process going. I really want to know who and how 0bama’s college education was paid for and how he actually did with grades.

You guys must be viewing the forum a different way to me. How does bumping it get it more exposure?

I think it’s because maybe most people reside on the Latest Comments tab instead of the Latest Articles tab. In any case, forum placement has little to do with hits. It doesn’t explain why some Chat threads go 300+, and why some Breaking News threads simply die on the vine.

99.9% of the times I read comments at FR is by clicking Latest Comments.
I don’t use keywords much either unless its something specific I am looking for.

grundle, you’ll enjoy this thread...

Over the past three years, President Obama has demonstrated his willingness to lie about anything and everything if it leads to the acquisition and retention of maximum power for himself and his cohorts. Obama follows a pattern of overloading the system with deception, making responses to every individual distortion impractical...

It’s pointless pushing points like #1. Everyone knows, left & right, that he would have pulled out day one if he could have got away with it.

The list already mentions multiple crimes.

Obama is a crony capitalist, not a Marxist.

I happen to believe that Obama was physically born in Hawaii. It is his values, beliefs, and actions that are not truly American.

Good point. On my computer, posts are listed in order of when they were first posted, and they can’t be “bumped.” Perhaps there’s a profile setting that can change that.

I agree with you - Obama is the lest vetted President in modern history. Associated Press had 11 reporters fact check Sarah Palin’s autobiography, but they had zero reporters fact check Obama’s. I am also curious about what courses he took on college, what his grades were, and how his tuition was paid.

Clicking on the “comments” tab gives you the same list as the “latest posts” section except you can click on the link to go straight to the original post (unlike with the latest posts section ; when you click on a link there it takes you to the latest post in that thread).

The “activity” tab seems to be defunct now (at least for me). It never works.

The News/Activism section does get the most attention I believe. It seems most like to browse it exclusively to filter out the other forums. The reason a lot of Beaking News threads don’t get a lot of replies is because they are already in the sidebar, so there is little reason to “bump” them to keep the thread visible to others.

Chat threads are another matter. They may or may not get a lot of replies. It seems the ones that do are ones about internal FR matters, ones about guns, dogs (especially pitbulls) , cruelty to any animals, and moose and ones about the civil war. Other chats tend to die rather quickly.

The reason I think he’s a crony capitalist is because he’s always trying to use the government to pick winners and losers in the business world, which is shown by many of the 79 examples.

I just don’t see it that way... North Korea picks winners and losers among their producers - it’s a totalitarian command economy run by corrupt Marxists. Maybe we’re defining the terms differently...

That’s a good point about North Korea. And I did say that Obama had the government take majority ownership of General Motors. And just aubot every Marxist leader has their own personal, private wealth. France’s new “socialist” president owns three summer homes on the French Riviera. I’d be curious to see what classes Obama took when he was in college. Maybe Obama is a Marxist - maybe he isn’t.

Marxisms is a horse to ride for totalitarians. It 'sounds so good' to the poor and ignorant...

If the MSM doesn’t get on to your list, they’ll lose what credibility they have left...
