Obama Demagoguery Supplemented by a Touch of Cruelty
In the Great Sequestration Debate, here’s what we know: (a) The president has paternity of an idea he now characterizes as a brutal and senseless assault on America. (b) The president and his then-chief of staff, Jack Lew, misled the public about their role in giving birth to the sequester idea. (c) House Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones, but Senate Democrats refused to act. (d) Mr. Obama has brushed off a Republican plan to give him flexibility to allocate the $85 billion in spending cuts, which makes no sense if the president wants to replace reckless cuts with responsible ones.
Whatever one thinks about the merits of cutting $85 billion (which is really $44 billion – what this government spends in a day- RP) out of an almost $3.6 trillion budget, the effort to portray the cuts as ushering in days of tribulation, distress and anguish, of trouble and ruin, of darkness and gloom is–how to put this?–insane.
If the sequester cuts go into effect, domestic agencies would have to cut 5 percent from their budgets after having received a 17-percent increase . . . .” full story here
To say Obama’s demagoguery has a touch of cruelty, is to speak truth with as much gentility as possible. Barack Obama has always spoken to the America people with a lying tongue. He lies to the Americans with the polish and style, which most politicians yearn for and which is probably what gave Chris Matthews that ‘thrill up his leg’. Leftist always admire fellow Leftist abilities to lie, distort and manipulate people and the reason why Impeached former President Bill Clinton is the twinkle in their Liberal eyes.
The sequester was Obama’s idea. He decided not to own it for the political purpose of wrapping up his continued Blame Game on Republicans. Obama relishes taking glory and praise for those things which he didn’t do, like killing of bin Laden and sternly blames everyone else for all his personal failures: four plus years of disastrous polices. And that has become the embodiment of the entire Democrat Party. They lie for their ‘dear leader’ and blame Republicans for all their crimes with unprecedented gusto.
This technique doesn’t appear to bother our Democrats (in or out of office and in the news ‘media’) who also appear to have no connection to conscience, ethics or morals.
And unfortunately, America has too many ‘drive by consumers’ who absorb what they classify as “news” from the likes of Jon Stewart, Jon Colbert, David Letterman and the pretend journalist- blowhards on MSNBC. But our corrupt, news media- pretenders has also been absorbed by NBC and other networks, who repeat Democrat Talking Points and shut their journalists notebooks, satisfied with their propagandic achievements.
It’s a cruel crime what Obama and his regime has done to this country — all with no accountability. I wonder if it went down like this in 1930’s Germany? Was this also Stalin’s approach? If Liberal ‘journalist’ were the same then — propping up and defending the leaders with whom they agreed? If so, we might never know the truth of these regimes, except for the brave souls who survived and reported directly to the public, who chose to hear.
As with all pompous, arrogant dictators, Obama forges ahead with this agenda as he tramples down what is in the best interest of the country. It will be up to citizens to fight back, to resist, to become informed and eventually to fight in the ballot box… and hopefully,nothing more than that. Or we’ll all succumb to the forces of tyranny. Do we have enough self sufficient, freedom loving Americans left to resist tyranny and openly fight it? That might be the last question asked if we do not.
