Lord I Was Born A Travelin’ Man


We all know someone like President Barack Obama. You know… the kind of person who tells a whopper of a lie, then leaves before you have a chance to call him on it. 

I think that’s why Obama is the most traveled President in history at this point in his Obamanation of a Presidency… Immediate case in point: Where is President Hope and Change today? Why, he’s off to Norway to pick up his Nobel Peace prize and insult the king. Look back across the few days and you’re bound to find some outrageous statements from Obama, knowing he would be fleeing the country shortly. And it doesn’t take long.   

During Tuesday’s speech at The Brookings Institution in Washington, DC. to roll out his stimulus style jobs plan, “The One”  praised his own team for creating “ambitious” financial reform and “sweeping” economic recovery initiatives, then took pot-shots at  the Republican party for having created the economic mess and then leaving it for him to resolve. Reality check: It was the Democratic pet projects Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac coupled with the Democratic Clinton administration forcing banks to make loans to those who would not normally qualify for them that largely  led to the bank insolvency crisis.  Add an inch to Pinnochio-bama’s nose.

“We were forced to take those steps (to jump-start the economy) largely without the help of an opposition party which, unfortunately, after having presided over the decision-making that had led to the crisis, decided to hand it over to others to solve.” 

 Reality check: See above. The decisions were made by people like Presidents Carter and Clinton in terms of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacle. As for not having the help of an opposition party? Well, someone should inform the President it’s hard to assist in these matters when you are locked out of participation.  And even when the Republicans are not locked out of the chamber, Nancy Pelosi (House Speaker) and Barney Frank  join with  Harry Reid (Senate Majority Leader) to marginalize involvement from across the aisle.  Add two more inches to Pinnochio-Bama’s nose. 

Obama said the crisis was caused not just by economic weakness but the “weakness in our political system” — one corroded by the “bitterness of partisanship,” and the “endless campaigns focused on scoring points instead of meeting our common challenges.”  

Reality check: Welcome to the unending presidential campaign of Barack Hussein (don’t use that name until I’m elected) Obama.  Add two more inches as he was attempting to pin that tail on the wrong donkey.  

“We’ve seen the consequences of this failure of responsibility. The American people have paid a heavy price.” Obama referred to the nation’s unemployment as a “human tragedy.”  

Reality check: Of course, he’s implying the Bush administration is responsible for everything this country is facing. Therein, witness his biggest lie yet. Perhaps if the President focused on preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution (as his oath of office  requires) instead of trying to find ways to circumvent and develop end-runs around it, he might actually accomplish something positive.

Bbut until then, that final accusation by Barack Obama will have to be reserved for his hagiography autobiography. Two… no, three more inches, for not only wasting our time and tax dollars, but for having the audacity to attempt to place the blame everywhere but the one place it deserves to be placed.  Add it up and what do you have?



 “Gotta go now… they’re giving me the Nobel Peace Prize today…”
