It’s a new chapter in the daily soap opera that has become Obama’s headlong rush to entrap seventeen percent of the national economy. It’s right out of Marx. Nothing is what it seems and nothing the Democrat Congress says will hold up to scrutiny. They lie with numbers faster than they lie about facts, if that’s possible.
Obama’s Fox News interview with Bret Baier was an exercise in slip-slide away… with Obama doing the slip-sliding and Baier trying to nail him down to a real answer… about anything. But, true to form, the prevaricator-in-chief spouted frayed talking points while totally ignoring substantive answers to anything Baier asked. The result was an Obama constantly on the defensive and showing flashes of anger and frustration, while Baier remained remarkably cool throughout.
The lame stream media predictably castigated Bret Baier and Fox News for ‘being cruel and disrespectful’ to the President while overlooking the obvious. That this is the first time any news outlet or reporter has attempted to do anything but grovel before Obama’s magnificence. If even one of these so-called news outlets had done their job to start with, we would have known a lot more about the real Obama. They sold out whatever claim they had to journalistic integrity long ago. The very fact that Obama was willing to go on Fox News, a venue he admittedly detests, is a measure of his desperation.
The CBO has just released the latest version (one of many) of the health care legislation and no one on the Democrat side of the aisle is jumping for joy, as this ‘latest’ bundle of joy is sixty nine billion dollars fatter than the last one. It strips even more dollars from Medicare and Medicare Advantage and raises even more taxes on the backs of the American people.
Obama, Pelosi and Reid apparently think that Americans are going to be deceived into thinking that a ten year projected cost of 940 billion dollars isn’t a trillion dollars, less a little change. The real truth of the situation is that they’ve done their math using methods that would get any senior executive thrown in jail in the private sector. They have used accounting methods that would make Bernie Madoff proud. The true ten year cost of the bill, according to the Heritage Foundation, is more like two point four trillion dollars.
Rush has called for a Fed-Ex express on the Capitol. There are thousands of Patriots heading towards the Capitol as I write this. Please continue your efforts to call, and call again and again… fax, email and write. It ain’t over until it’s over and then there will just be another battle over the next hill. We won’t ever quit… this is our country and we won’t give it up. God Bless America!
