Politicians, including President Obama: are they “playing” the public?


Things to ponder:

1.  During the presidential campaign, to assure the military (if he were elected)  that he would be a Commander-in-Chief who could be counted on to support all levels of the military and their families, candidate Obama indicated that a grateful nation would take care of them all, specifically the ones who had been wounded or had died in the service of the country….  As president he issued a “Proclamation” of support for those in the military, and their families…

Now, cut military benefits and healthcare says the Defense Secretary Gates…  As a subordinate of the president and on such an important issue, obviously he is acting with the president’s  knowledge and support…  Seems that the Secretary and President think military men and women are paid too much and that too much money is spent on their healthcare…  That does not show support for the military as he stated during his campaign…  The president seems to be breaking his word…

Would not be surprising if one main reason for cutting military health costs and benefits is to use the savings to help pay for the massive healthcare plan he pressured the Congress to pass, which for years will require massive expenditures…

2.  As a presidential candidate, President Obama made some clearcut statements about taxes:  “I can make a firm pledge,” he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”  Nonetheless, already taxes have been increased in different areas…  As further proof of his pledge,   “Read my lips”, the President seemed to say, in a video during the campaign for president… 

But a leader of the Deficit Commission President Obama appointed, recently indicated that the president had told them he will support any conclusions reached by the commission, including raising taxes on whatever and whomever the commission decides, apparently…  Betting money by anyone who bets would likely be making a sure bet if they concluded that sometime in the future the president will push for tax increases — he likely will fall back and blame the Deficit Commission for suggesting the raising of taxes, in that way attempting to get political cover for himself for going back on his word, again…

3.   The president guided the passage of the Healthcare law that will drive the nation’s deficit to heights never before seen…  With other pressing problems the nation was facing, passing this law was not in the best national interest of the country, at this time(MOODY warns)…  

Additionally (after passing the drastic and expensive Healthcare law), President Obama now says, in effect, that taxes ought to be raised because it is in the national interest to do so in order to pay for things such as, you guessed it, the Healthcare Law…  He does not mention that the problem of the continuing increasingly massive deficits are his fault as a result of things such as this law, a problem that could have been avoided…  Just like Greece could have avoided its problems (Deficit problems)…

4.  Regarding the massive $500,000,000,000 scheduled cuts to Medicare that would hurt all Senior Citizens:  the cuts the president and his party stated were to be used to help fund the aforementioned newest massive Healthcare Law, now are the subject of a new rumor  that new tax increases will be passed to replace the money to Medicare that was to be cut out of the Medicare program…  The explanation seems to be that although the deficit will increase once again, few will argue against taxes for Medicare to help Senior Citizens…  Plus, probably it will be another way for the newest comprehensive Healthcare plan to get more funding as well!

It all seems to be a shell game being played on mostly unsuspecting decent citizens, and is another indication of why politicians are overall not trusted…   Again, the November elections will tell if the citizenry is paying attention and if they will be able to figure out under which shell the nut is, or if the nut isn’t under any shell — or, if everyone is being played for a nut…

  1. I knew that you would understand!

  2. The “real” Obama is finally standing up. He lied to get elected (we know politicians all lie) but this guy REALLY told BIG ones with a straight, sincere face.
    Truthfully there is nothing the voting public could have done to defeat this candidate as there was major skulduggery (look up this perfectly good word) afoot to get him elected.
    We need smaller government, no more bailouts, reduced entitlements and to elect new, term restricted politicians in order to crawel out of this abyss we have made for ourselves.
    Frankly, from where I stand, Nancy Grace is our best candidate for the next presidency position (I know I’m going to catch flack over this statement.) Consider this, name me one guy who is tough enough to go head to head with corrupt politicians and who can hold his own in a heated debate. I await your reply, with evidence. Where is Elliot Ness when we need him?

  3. Now Pan Am… Don’t go insulting the “honest” purveyors of street corner shell games… 🙂

    Great post!
