Team Obama trying to unring the Obamaphone
obamaphone.net ^ | dead

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, it’s Bush’s 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. I’m 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 didn’t initiate this program. It’s 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 Obama’s 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 shouldn’t 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 can’t find the original obamaphone.net page that gave all the credit to Dear Leader. It’s been wiped clean. Even archive.org’s 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With my limited skills, I have been unable to find an archived version anywhere.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!

Well, Solyndra and countless other independent firms have been crated under Obama.

I saw the pine cone, too. The blog format site had a rotating image at the top, and when I grabbed it there was the steering wheel. Can’t believe the William Bush line. Odd choice of stock photo selections, lol. I guess they didn’t pay much attention to the template under such “pressure” to distance.

Great stuff. Playing that screaming harpy is the most effective ad for Romney out there.

The Disaster’s people apparently realize this. Thanks Rush.

I’m sure every phone is equipped with an election year app that rings: “vote early and vote often”.

When I go to the site, it still has the old text there.

I’m confused.

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

By this logic, if I hold a gun to your head and tell you to give my wife all your money, I didn't rob you! And technically neither did my wife - she was just standing there when this non-incident occurred!

Tell me again, how these people got to be our "leaders!"

Let me see if I got this straight. Obama is not responsible for anything?

It may also be that they finally noticed the copy they put up was completely unacceptable.

In addition to being a grammatical car wreck, the idea that they were pushing responsibility back as far as Woodrow Wilson really made them look silly.

They want to keep Obama in president.

"George William Bush"? Close enough for government work.

If Romney wins, he will be the fourth Republican President in a row to have one of his names start with W--but none of them had a William in his name (Wilson, Walker, Walker, Willard).

Join the club! Today, when I first logged into this thread, there was a link to the "new" text at the site, obamaphone.net, which was a blog format including the reference to a George William Bush. This was the replacement site. Then, within minutes of my screen grab (with the steering wheel graphic) they changed it back to what is there now which is the original page they had earlier scrubbed!

Just think! The “fees collected by the phone companies” helped to pay for the Spanish-American War (1898), and they finally got it paid for just a few years ago! I guess that’s when they switched to using the fees to pay for “Obamaphones.” So, in essence, we are still funding a war paid for by phone fees. This time, though, the war is against us.

Here’s the thing.... Crawled versions of the website (e.g. archive.org/wayback machine cached pages) were not necessarily scrubbed. They may have never existed depending on the coding of the page to begin with (you can tell all bots that will listen - archive.org being one of many that do) not to crawl your domain or certain pages if you like (bots.txt and robots meta tag). I tried explaining this (with references and such) to another freeper a while back, but ran into a wall of denial by that person. If you would like, I can attempt to find that discussion so you can see the citations I made with all the pertinent info.

Here’s two citations off the cuff:

Question: Why does the "Free Obama Phone" have to be a cell phone? Why couldn't it be a free landline phone? Much cheaper for those of us paying for it. No features, including long distance, needed as the "free" phone is being marketed as a way to make "emergency communications." You don't need call waiting, caller ID, etc. if you're just calling your neighbor or 911.

FWIW, I do not have a cell phone and probably never will.

Obamaphone.net is still a registered domain.
