Awful… Obama’s First Campaign Ad is Riddled With Green Lies (Video)

How awful.
The current President of the United States released his first campaign ad of the season last week. It is riddled with lies.
He’s hoping to win reelection by grossly distorting the truth.

Official Wire reported:

Citing a Brookings Institution study, Obama’s ad implies that he created 2.7 million clean energy jobs, and that the clean energy sector is growing rapidly. Investor’s Business Daily reveals the dishonesty here: those 2.7 million jobs already existed, and the quoted Brookings report makes it perfectly clear that the clean energy sector is growing more slowly (3.4% annually) than the national economy (4.2% annually).

Other sources paint a similar picture:

• The New York Post reported that new Clean Air Act regulations, which passed in the time since the article was published, “would jeopardize 251,000 jobs”; that an abrupt EPA ruling “directly threatens 1,500 employees” at Texas power plants; and that Obama’s “air-quality policies alone could force the retirement of up to 90,000 megawatts of coal power, and require $200 billion in retrofits by 2020.”

• The Defour Group warned that after a new, government-imposed 56 miles per gallon standard, the auto industry could lose 220,000 jobs by 2025.

• The Canadian Energy Research Institute estimated that the recently killed Keystone XL Pipeline would have created 179,000 American jobs by 2035.

• The House Energy and Commerce Committee website cited the statistics of Professor Joseph Mason of Louisiana State University: Obama’s Gulf of Mexico drilling ban will result in $4.4 billion in lost economic output and 19,000 in job losses.

Regardless of clean energy’s economic viability, no elected official should get away with misleading taxpayers and voters to this degree.

Obama’s hoping to lie his way into a second term. Disgusting.

    Obama is speaking to his people, the racist idiots who chant his name every 20 mins every day , those who mooch off the taxpayers and have discussions on such ethnically relevant subjects as
    ” disrespect” and ” yo mama” outside the liquor stores they hang out 20 hrs a day .
    Obama is speaking to marxists who hate our country as much as he does , and who have been working for more than a century to destroy USA.
    He is not even making an effort to speak to people like us.

  • Callipygian1

    Who will call him on it and refute it to a big enough audience to overcome the initial lies?

    If it is told to 300 million people, and only 60 million people realize its a lie, well… they win. They don’t care how they achieve the win.

    Crony Capitalism

    [The largest banks are actually bigger than they were when he took
    office. And earned more in the first two-and-a-half years of his term
    than they did during the entire eight years of the Bush administration.

    to 18 for Republicans. That’s a rout anyway you look at it. Senators
    fare even better than house members.

    Lillibet commented:

    *sigh* Congress caused the housing bubble by forcing banks to lend to people who lacked the resources to pay. President Bush made his first speech on the topic in January, the year he took office.

    “Mr. Greenspan, who led the Fed from 1987 to 2006, pointed out however, that making it easier for poorer Americans to get mortgages didn’t push the country into crisis. According to him, the abandonment of rational lending standards and Wall Street’s drive to package the loans into opaque securities helped do so.”

    In my opinion, “the abandonment of rational lending standards” was the only way for the banks to make the goals established for them by Congress, and the loan packages (backed by Congressional assurances) were a rational attempt to protect themselves from the hazards of nonpayment.

    He will lie his entire way through the campaign.

    I would like for Newt to tell Obama…. Since you seem to know whats best for all insurance companies and car companies and solar companies…. Please do us all a favor and resign now and start your own health insurance company. Because you feel they are ripping people off and not doing whats best for the consumer you can do what you want to force them all to do volunarily and surely everyone would be knocking down your doors to buy from you becuase you are so freaking generous. Be sure to start this company with your own money and other liberal investors. You would be rich and doing great things for the country. You surely would be better at this than being a lame dick President.

    “FMR. REP. GINGRICH: …wait a second, wait a second, David. David, you know better than that. I was not a lobbyist, I was never a lobbyist, I never did any lobbying. Don’t try to mix these things up. The fact is I was an adviser strategically and if you look at the only thing ever published by Freddie Mac I said, “You need more regulations.” If you look at the only article ever written about my talking to the Congress it was in The New York Times in July of 2008 and I said, “Do not give them any money.” Now I opposed giving money to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I think they both should be broken up into four or five much smaller companies. And I’ve long felt that. And so I think that to jump from one to the other is simply wrong.” Smaller banks thrive – 2010
    “”They’re not suffering the delinquencies, the defaults that the bigger banks are suffering,” said Creighton University professor Dr. Ernie Goss.

    Small banks thrive below regulators’ radar
    Boast “cleaner business models’ than their bigger brethren

    “Unlike their plus-size brethren, many of which gained notoriety during the 2008-09 financial meltdown, smaller banks tend to be unencumbered by questionable assets or complicated product lines. That has allowed them to operate, if not thrive, just below regulators’ radar.”

    Billion-Dollar Scandal Not Ready for Prime Time Scandal

    [Gasparino agreed: “Right. It’s not related to George Bush. Franklin Raines, I believe, is a Democrat. So there is a degree here – because I’ve heard journalists talk about this – that hey, this is – there’s politics on the part of the Republicans. That’s why they’re beating up on Fannie Mae, which may be true. But, at the same time, this is a huge story, and it’s going overlooked.”

    Sadly, this perception of political correctness is out of touch with reality. According to a September 2003 report by a GSE watchdog group, Fannie Mae Policy Focus, Fannie lags far behind the market in facilitating housing for minority and first-time buyers. As a matter of fact, the GSEs buy less than 10 percent of private sector loans to first-time African-American and Hispanic purchasers. Moreover, Fannie and Freddie acquired “more loans made to absentee landlords, vacation homes, and second mortgages than first-time homebuyer loans,” according to the report.

    It appears that very little of the implicit taxpayer subsidy to the GSEs is fulfilling that politically correct dream. This failure, compounded by an accounting scandal, should be red meat for story-driven TV journalists. As the analysis proves, that hasn’t been the case.]

    Barack Obama And Wall Street: 6 Prominent
    Bankers And Their ‘Unholy Alliance’ (photos)

    [Conventional wisdom has it that Wall Street is the ultimate bastion of free-market capitalism and that the big bankers are, of course, diehard Republicans, red to the core. But the truth is far from that: Many of the leaders of the world’s financial firms are as liberal as they come. As attorney and political strategist Jack Burkman explains, “People tend to associate Republicans with Wall Street, but the truth is, it’s the Democrats that are in bed with the Street. And that’s certainly true with Obama. He’s been in bed [with them] from the beginning. And that was crucial to his victory. Without Wall Street’s initial support he doesn’t have credibility … No doubt about it. Without Wall Street, Obama would not be in power today.”]

    [The new chief of staff, Jack Lew, comes from Obama’s Office of
    Management and Budget, where he replaced Peter Orszag, who
    now works as vice chairman for global banking at the giant
    conglomerate Citigroup. Still following me?

    It’s startling the number of high-ranking Obama officials who have
    spun through the revolving door between the White House and the
    sacred halls of investment banking.


    And get this: President Obama’s new best friend, according to The New York
    Times, is Robert Wolf. They play golf, basketball, and they talk economics
    when Wolf is not raising money for the President’s re-election campaign.
    Now, just who is Robert Wolf? Well, <b.he's top dog at the U.S. branch of
    the giant Swiss bank UBS, the very bank that helped rich Americans evade
    taxes. Here, Senator Carl Levin describes some of the tricks used by UBS:

    “Exit polling from the last national elections in 2010 show, depending on which polls you consult, anywhere from a 24-point to an 18-point Catholic swing from supporting Democrats to supporting Republicans. The Associated Press claimed Catholics supported the GOP by 58%, CNN said it was 55%, and a CNN exit poll pegged Catholic support of the GOP in 2010 at 53%.”

    True. It’s called “regulatory capture.” When the government started intruding more and more into the banking market, the banks sought protection, and got it. Calling them criminals, and playing into the hands of the Obama election campaign, however, isn’t going to solve the problem.
