Once Again, Obama Bloviates

To bloviate means "to speak pompously and excessively," or "to expound ridiculously." A colloquial verb coined in the United States, it is commonly used with contempt to describe the behavior of politicians, academics, pundits or media "experts," sometimes called bloviators, who hold forth on subjects in an arrogant, tiresome way.
(From reference page.)

I find it very difficult to believe ANYTHING that comes out of Obama's mouth. He has lied - time and time again - and has reneged (just ask how furious pro-life Catholics are who were lied to by Obama) on many promises made on the campaign trail. How can anyone trust a guy like that?

All of his bloviating about doom and gloom if this PORKER bill doesn't pass just makes me ill. He reminds me of a two-year-old who stamps his feet and screams at the top of his lungs when he doesn't get his way. Obama just uses a teleprompter to recruit support for his stupid, wasteful, and "pay to play" back intentions towards those groups that helped get him elected.

I certainly don't want to trust him with billions of taxpayer money!

I certainly don't want him using our family's hard earned income being sent to the government in the form of taxes to go to what Obama, Reid, and Pelosi think is important. THEY JUST DON'T GET IT! YOU CANNOT SPEND YOUR WAY TO ECONOMIC RECOVERY!

Besides. The whole bunch of them seem to always forget that





T H E I R S!!!

It doesn't belong to ObamaFRAUD, Nancy PeLIARsi or Harry ReiDUNCE.


Several news commentators have mentioned that if the government just gave us all a tax holiday for two months, it would do so much more in stimulating the economy (and getting people spending money again) than this PORKAPALOOZA bill! In addition, it would end up costing half as much as the spending bill! Makes sense to me! How about you?

Oh wait - that doesn't allow for Obama's Neo-Marxist "spread the wealth around" socialism. Can't forget about that now can we? /sarcasm off

I like how the author of The Betrayal Blog put it:

Porkulus Maximus: GOP Turncoat Senators Exposed

Well let’s call those four,
Collins (202) 224-2523
Snowe (202) 224-5344
Voinovich (202) 224-3353
Specter (202) 224-4254,

and make them aware of the fact they have made themselves guilty of following the Usurper in his quest to wreck the Country.

I suggest reminding them of the words spoken by Samuel Adams :

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may Posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

- David Crockett

People...don't give up! Keep writing and calling the senators in Washington and tell them NO TO THIS STIMUWASTE SPENDING BILL!!

I keep hearing about reductions in spending allotments to the liberals' prize pork projects. THEY SHOULDN'T BE IN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE! HELLO? ANYBODY IN THAT BRAIN??

Does anyone happen to know if ACORN - the most corrupt organization of the 2008 election (well, maybe just one of the most corrupt - THERE WERE SO MANY OF THEM that got Obama elected) - is still included in the revised bill? I would like to know about that. It is one organization that deserves ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from the taxpayers!

Received this email today and wanted to pass the information along:

A message to all members of The Patriotic Resistance

Here is a copy of Mitch McConnell's letter against the StimuWASTE PORKAPALOOZA SPENDING BILL:

Mitch McConnell statement opposing the new Spendulous

Posted by Steve Elliott on February 7, 2009 at 7:46am

I received this directly from Sen. McConnell's office late Friday/early Saturday. Sen. McConnell is standing strong against the Obama/Democrat spending plan.

McConnell Statement on Proposed $820 Billion Spending Bill

‘But as near as we can tell, even after those efforts, it is roughly the same size as the House bill. The Senate bill, under the compromise, we believe, would be about $827 billion.’

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor Friday regarding the Democrats’ agreement on the trillion-dollar spending bill:

“The question of whether or not the economy needs help is really not in debate. I don't think there's a single member of the Senate that believes that no action is the appropriate course for us to take.

“But one of the good things about reading history is you learn a good deal. And, we know for sure that the big spending programs of the New Deal did not work.

“In 1940, unemployment was still 15%. And, it's widely agreed among economists, that what got us out of the doldrums that we were in during the Depression was the beginning of World War II.

“We have another example.

“What is called in Japan the Lost Decade of the 1990's, where stimulus packages similar to the one we're considering tonight were tried again, and again, and again. And, at the end of the 1990's, Japan, looked very much like it did at the beginning of the 1990's, except that it had a much larger debt.

“Now, we've not seen the compromise proposal, which has been discussed here tonight. And, I know there's been a good faith effort on the part of those involved to pare down the size of the underlying Senate measure.

“But as near as we can tell, even after those efforts, it is roughly the same size as the House bill.

“According to the figures I’ve been given, the House bill is about $820 billion. The Senate bill, under the compromise, we believe, would be about $827 billion. Bear in mind the interest costs on either of those proposals would be $348 billion. So we're really talking about a $1.1 trillion pending measure.

“A $1.1 trillion spending measure. We're looking at a $1 trillion deficit for this fiscal year.

“We believe that the Secretary of the Treasury and the President will suggest to us as early as next week that we need to do -- what has commonly become referred to as a TARP round – some kind of additional assistance for the financial system as early as next week. We're talking about an extraordinarily large amount of money and a crushing debt for our grandchildren.

“Now, if most Republicans were convinced that this would work, there might be a greater willingness to support it. But all the historical evidence suggests that it's highly unlikely to work. And so, you have to balance the likelihood of success versus the crushing debt that we're levying on the backs of our children, our grandchildren, and, yes, their children.

“And the need to finance all of this debt which many suspect would lead to ever higher and higher interest rates which could create a new round of problems for our economy.

“So let me just sum it up by saying no action is not what any of my Republican colleagues are advocating. But most of us are deeply skeptical that this will work. And that level of skepticism leads us to believe that this course of action should not be chosen.

“We had an opportunity to do this in a truly bipartisan basis and the President said originally he had hoped to get 80 votes. It appears that, the way this has developed, there will be some bipartisan support, but not a lot. And it's not likely, in the judgment of most of us, to produce the result that we all desire.

“So, I will not be in a position to recommend support for this product as it has developed in spite, again, of the best efforts of those who worked on the compromise. I commend them for their willingness to try to work this out. It seems to me that it falls far short of the kind of measure that we should be passing.

Since Obama’s earnest drive to convince the nation to weaken its economic strength through redistribution as well as weaken its national defense, COUPLED WITH HIS UNPRECEDENTED WHITE HOUSE TAKEOVER OF DECENNIAL CENSUS TAKING FROM THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT, has confirmed the very threats to our Republic’s survival that the Constitution was designed to avert, it no longer is sustainable for the United States Supreme Court and Military Joint Chiefs to refrain from exercising WHAT IS THEIR ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO DEFEND THE NATION FROM UNLAWFUL USURPATION. The questions of Obama’s Kenyan birth and his father’s Kenyan/British citizenship (admitted on his own website) have been conflated by his sustained unwillingnes to supply his long form birth certificate now under seal, and compounded by his internet posting of a discredited ‘after-the-fact’ short form ‘certificate’. In the absence of these issues being acknowledged and addressed, IT IS MANIFEST THAT OBAMA REMAINS INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. Being a 14th Amendment ‘citizen’ is not sufficient. A ‘President’ MUST BE an Article 2 ‘natural born citizen’ AS DEFINED BY THE FRAMERS’ INTENT.
