Obama and Campaign Finance…

October 26, 2012

And now some Thursday morning humor.

Today we have an Article from the Daily Caller, mentioning an interview of President Obama, on Air Force One, where he said:

Obama suggested he would use a second term — when he can’t run again — to impose limits on other politicians’ spending.”

This, coming from the President who first said he would abide by the limits of campaign funding by accepting the federal match, before he threw that promise out the window and SPENT $740 MILLION in 2008 getting elected President!!!

“I continue to believe that,” said Obama, who has raised roughly $1.5 billion over his 16-year political career. In 2008, he declined to limit his spending in exchange for federal campaign funds, and raised enough funds to outspend his 2008 rival, $740 million to $227 million.”

Now that the Republicans have MATCHED HIS SPENDING…..AND HE IS GOING TO LOSE, he wants to limit campaign spending.

“…his 2012 rival, Romney, has raised $472 million for the race…

I will stipulate that “outside groups” are spending $500 million for the Republicans, that is not included in this number.

“…Obama and his allies have raised $1 billion for the 2012 campaign, according to a calculation by Politico

This seems to be another case of Obama’s “fuzzy math”, or his grade school “if I can’t beat you by the rules, I’ll take my ball home!!”
 
Oh, the IRONY!!!

Obama’s Sacrifice…

April 20, 2011

Recently, I heard one of “The One’s” diatribes.  He was saying something about how the “rich” should sacrifice and accept an increase in their taxes.  Note:  I am NOT one of the “rich”.  In fact, I am not even  close.  My wife and I are not even close to the “rich”, those making $200,000 per year (this definition from the President).  Unfortunately, I do not have the time to try and find the speech/interview.

He was saying how He wanted to increase the taxes on the “rich” to match the tax rates during President “I lied to the American public under oath” Clinton.

I’ll make a deal with “The One”,….. I’ll agree to let the tax rates INCREASE to the level during President “It depends on what the definition of the word is, is” Clinton, IF we can limit Government spending to the levels that it was during the SAME time!!!  If you will CUT government spending to 1999 levels, I will agree to 1999 tax rates!!

What say you Mr. President???

No Specific Ideas…

September 21, 2010

Today, the Anointed One “claimed” that the “Tea Party” does not have any SPECIFIC IDEAS when it comes to their desires to lower Government spending and/or cut taxes. 

First, I wat to state that there is not a “Tea Party”, per se.  There is a (large) group of American Citizens that do NOT like the  current direction of the United States, specifically the trend towards a Socialist government that controls almost EVERY aspect of its citizens lives.  They believe that Government is NOT the solution to every problem that we face.  They desire lower taxes, more freedom (including the freedom to fail), and they want to feel safe in a dangerous world. 

Now, as for the “allegation” that the “Tea Party” does not have any specific ideas about spending.  Give me a minute, I want to make sure that I say this in such a way that The One may finally understand what I am saying.

Let me be clear,  I want the government to pull out the books from way back in 2008.  Then I want them to spend EXACTLY what they spent, on EXACTLY what they spent it on!!!! 

This will be a good place to start.  If the President does NOT like these ideas, I will readily give him a choice.  HE can pick ANY year, BEFORE he became the leader of the FREE WORLD, and use that year as the spending EXAMPLE!!!  Do not change the amount or the destination of the spending!!!  THEN we can work on other ideas for reducing spending.

I hope I have been CLEAR.  Any questions, Mr. President??

President Obama is a GENIUS…

July 31, 2009

CLANK, CLANK, CLANK…..
Please make sure your lap bar and seat belts are securely fastened and please keep your hands inside the car for the entire ride…..
CLANK, CLANK, CLANK…..

That is the sound of the roller coaster that we are now on.  DO NOT worry about the budget deficit or any of the “money” that the USA currently owes, President Obama and friends are going to make it so SMALL that we will have no trouble paying it off.

I know, I know, all you hear about is how large the National Debt is getting.  I mean, $1 TRILLION dollars SOUNDS like a lot of “money”.  But, is it really??  In 1960, $1 million dollars was a lot of money.  Heck, in 1990 $1 million dollars was still large.  In 2000, I would argue that billion became the new million.  Even Forbes listing of the richest people no longer includes multi-millionaires.  Soon, trillion will be the new million.

With spending (National Health Care, Energy Cap and Trade, Stimulus I, Stimulus II, etc.) that President Obama, the Democratic Congress and the Democratic Senate are trying to FORCE upon the American public, the deficit is getting out of control.  Bernanke says that He can remove the excess “money”, that He has been printing 24/7 as fast as the printers will run for the past 8 months, from the system AS SOON AS it is needed in order to ELIMINATE the threat of INFLATION.  For the moment, let’s assume that He CAN do this.  Does He believe that EVERY central banker in the world CAN do the same thing.  At this point almost every country in the world is flooding the system with currency. (at least $800 BILLION from the USA, at least $500 BILLION from China, at least $70 BILLION from England, at least $370 BILLION from the European Union, at least $80 BILLION from Russia, at least $154 BILLION from Japan, at least $47 BILLION from Canada, etc.).

In my opinion, we are heading for a dose of inflation, that may even turn into HYPERINFLATION.  This is the type of inflation that means you add a ZERO to anything that deals with money, basically overnight.  That $3 gallon of milk now costs $30, that $40 dollar tank of gas now costs$400, that $6 lunch at McD’s now costs $60….you get the picture.  When this happens, our National Debt will NOT go up as fast.  See how SMALL it is getting?

Do not worry about what will happen to you when your wages/salary do not increase as fast as inflation, the government will take care of you.

Remember when President Obama lied said that He would NOT raise taxes for anyone making less than $250,000.  He is almost correct.  First, he is going to raise taxes, and then…….wait for it………..you will be making MORE than $250,000.  How is that going to happen?  Remember when I said you add a ZERO to anything that deals with money?  If you are making $25,000/year now, soon that will be the same as making $250,000/year.  See how SMALL the National Debt is getting?

Here is the best part.  Right now, the top 10% of earners pay 71% of the federal income tax collected, and 32% do not pay ANY federal income tax.  After we add a zero to everyone’s pay, the bottom 32% will START to pay taxes (FINALLY), because the tax code is NOT adjusted for inflation.  See how SMALL the National Debt is getting?

But, do NOT worry what is going to happen to you during the transition.  It might get a little bumpy for YOU personally, but the National Debt is getting so SMALL!!! 

President Obama and friends are GENIUSES!!!

CLANK, CLANK, CLANK…..enjoy the ride!!!!
