Do You Believe This Garbage?… Obama Resorts to Outright Lies in Weekly Address

This is how Barack Obama opened his Weekly Address this week.
Listen to this garbage.

And here’s the transcript:

Hi, everybody. Over the past year, as I traveled across the country campaigning for this office, I told you that if I was fortunate enough to be re-elected, I’d work to change a tax code that too often benefited the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

This week, we did that. For the first time in two decades, we raised taxes on the wealthiest 2% of Americans in a bipartisan way, while preventing a middle-class tax hike that could have thrown our economy back into recession.

Under this law, more than 98% of Americans and 97% of small business will not see their income taxes go up one dime

Now here’s the truth:
** Under the new fiscal cliff plan workers making less than $30,000 a year will take a bigger hit than those making $500,000 a year.
** The fiscal cliff bill that passed the US Senate and the US House will raise payroll taxes from 4.2% to 6.2%. In other words those making $100,000 a year will see their taxes increase by $2,000.
** The bill raised taxes on 77% of American households.

It would be nice if the liberal media would hold this man’s feet to the fire.
Just once.

    The democrats have introduced a bill which would allow obama to serve a third term.

    About truthful spoken by Barack Hussein Obama is fewer counted using 2 hands which was given opportunity by GOD to warn lawful loyal American citizens.

    Politics is all about the wording. Income taxes didn’t go up. Payroll taxes did. It’s all a political shell game to keep themselves in power. It won’t be but another couple of years when he tries to raise taxes again and then says that the middle class should pay their fair share. This first phase is just the conditioning for the rest of us.

    You want big government? Then you got to pay big government taxes.

  • Maxwell

    In my previous post on pg 1, I pointed out the word games the Ds will play over Income tax versus Payroll tax. I just thought of something else. Every time Conservatives and Republicans would point out that nearly 50% of workers pay no income tax, the Ds would respond by bringing up the Payroll tax.

    So apparently, the payroll tax is only an income type tax to the Ds when they are trying desperately to mitigate the damage of nearly 50% of american workers having a 0% effective tax rate.

    The real problem though is the media. Were it not for an overly biased media, the Ds would not be able to get away with so many lies.

    Now you are lying about what Obama lied about! You left wing ill witted Obamanoids never cease with your deceptions and, dare it be said: LIES!

  • Limousine Barry

    Me – lie to you? How could you tell?

    I only lie to you on days ending in Y!


    Let me be clear, as I was telling my good friend Vladimir Putin, I can be much more flexible after the election… more flexible to lie, cheat and plunder!

    Heck, I didn’t think the stupid poor people would notice my across-the-board 2% payroll tax hike! It’s like they are catching on to my con-jobs as they occur!

    My limousine is sucking gas and I need to smoke some grass.

    I asked Joe Biden where did all the money go?

    In to my cronies pockets?

    Lie for me! Say it ain’t so Joe!

    The only thing that will wake up the low information voter is when this country crashes….and crash it will. Godlessness always brings a country down, and we currently have the most Godless administration in our history.

    #6 Bubba,
    You have hit this nail squarely on it’s head. The conservatives have lost the war, oh we won one battle in the 2010 elections but the war is lost now and it is time for an amicable divorce.
    Hasn’t anyone wondered just what Obama meant four days before he took office back in 2009 when he said we were four days away from fundamentally changing this nation? I believe he meant that he would make sure there would be more “takers” those who get their cost of living paid for by the tax payer than the “makers” those who pay for their own cost of living. Obama has made sure that the “takers” outnumber the “makers” PERMANENTLY.
    I am not going to lump the retired into the “taker” catagory because they paid FICA and that really should be OWNED by the ones who paid for it…. I know I, as a business owner, pay for more than half of that contribution, but it should be owned by the worker and not the Feds.
    Maybe if some states grow some balls and secede these situations can be addressed in an adult manner. I know, I am still dreaming.

    Theadora (shadow) is still trying to change the subject. When lies and deception aren’t working, and you’re losing the argument, simply change the subject … right?

  • BarbaraS

    Congress just let the SS and Medicare taxes go back to their original rates. They never said the 2% cut would be permanent and actually, this cut has put SS and Medicare in a hole we will probably never climb out of. At a time when the “me” generation was coming on board SS to overcrowd the system, the smart set enacted this boondoggle. This was just a campaign freebie to make the dims look like they cared about the populace and buy more votes. It was ridiculous to start with just like almost all dim iniatives especially when unemployment is so high and has been for years now.

  • BarbaraS

    The dims made noises for a while to change FICA and Medicare contributions to payroll taxes and call it a tax with no benefits. I assumed they were going to slowly claim workers weren’t guaranteed SS and Medicare and stop paying seniors at some point in time. If they did it by fiat there would surely be a revolution. Looks like they are reverting back to the norm. Or maybe not. Once they feel they have hooked onto a good thing they will push it with all their might. Obama is just saying something that sounds good…to him anyway. Never trust a dim to do the right thing. They don’t know what that is.

    There was a reason for the 22nd Amendment.

    ‘There are no good American history textbooks on the market. I’ve looked. We non-leftists have to settle for the least bad one we can find. A number of my friends told me a year ago that Tindall and Shi’s America: A Narrative History was the least bad. So, I’ve used it this semester for my survey course covering the period from Reconstruction to the present.

    Naturally, and not at all unexpectedly, the book is abominable, and nowhere more so than in its discussion of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The authors are so enthusiastic about the revolution he effected in American government and society that you can practically hear the pom-poms shake.

    Although I’m focusing on this particular text, such flagrant bias is, of course, hardly confined to Tindall and Shi. Gary Dean Best points out in his excellent book Pride, Prejudice, and Politics: Roosevelt Versus Recovery, 1933 – 1938 that while the reams of social and economic legislation for which FDR was responsible are spelled out proudly in every American history textbook, “the costs for the United States of his eight-year-long war against business recovery are mentioned in none.”

    In America: A Narrative History, we get all the details of Watergate and of Nixon’s abuse of power (as we should), but not a word about FDR as the pioneer of such activity. When the Paulist radio station of poor Fr. James Gillis in Chicago criticized FDR’ s court-packing scheme, the FCC took its license away. As early as 1935, FDR requested that the FBI initiate a series of investigations into a variety of right-wing organizations, and later in the decade secretly sought proof (which, of course, never came) that prominent members of the America First Committee were receiving Nazi money. America Firsters were routinely smeared as Nazis and traitors. Our authors provide us with plenty of one-sided coverage of Joe McCarthy, but nothing about any of this.

    Naturally, our authors assure us that FDR’s massive spending projects provided jobs and economic stimulus. It would probably be too much to expect a typical historian to appreciate Frédéric Bastiat’ s point about opportunity cost from his famous essay, “What Is Seen and What Is Not Seen.” At the very least, though, it cannot be unreasonable to expect some acknowledgment of the considerable amount of scholarship that over the past several decades has explored the peculiar distribution of FDR’s spending. The corruption with which FDR’ s public-works projects were infested is fairly well-established- the rather curious preponderance of Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects in Western states where FDR’s electoral margin had been thin in 1932, the intimidation of WPA workers into voting Democratic, and the like. Naturally, we get not a word about any of that.

    FDR s agricultural policies were in a class of genius all their own. Convinced that falling prices were hindering economic recovery, FDR decided that prices were now to be raised by any means necessary. Agriculture Secretary Henry Wallace, as thoroughgoing a Soviet dupe as this country has ever seen, described the wholesale destruction of crops and livestock in which he and FDR engaged in order to boost farm prices as “a cleaning up of the wreckage from the old days of unbalanced production” (as Tindall and Shi quote him, approvingly).’…

    The Truth about FDR

    Sounds familiar.

    re #73

    ‘… America’s political philosopher, Lee Harris, in an elegiac piece for President’s Day, ‘A Father without a Son,’ reminded us why we have a 22nd Amendment. It is because President Roosevelt violated the unwritten rule of presidential succession.

    In 1940 he ran for a third term.

    Back in 1787, before we elected our first president, political opinion was sharply divided on the question of a chief executive. Americans knew, after the failure of the Articles of Confederation, that something stronger than a purely legislative government was needed. So the Constitution’s Article II declared that ‘The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.’ But how, worried men like Thomas Jefferson, would we ever make the President go away?

    ‘After all, Jefferson was fully aware that the first President was going to be George Washington. Everyone knew that—just as everyone knew that the Presidency would remain in Washington’s hands for as long as he wished to hang on to it. Washington, elected once, was in essence elected for life.’

    Fortunately, Washington had no son, so even if he had stayed in office until he died, the Washington dynasty would have died with him. But Washington determined that

    ‘He would not die in office; instead, he would be elected for two terms, and then he would not run again.’

    This noble renunciation of power served as a brake, a gentlemen’s agreement, that restrained the ambitions of presidents for nearly 150 years.

    It was not until 1940 that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, after 8 years of failing to lead the nation out of the Great Depression, decided that he needed one more Big Push.’…

    Stop the 22nd Amendment Chatter

    Will Hussein bin Obama decide he needs a Third Chance? Is water wet?


    I agree with those that point out there is a difference between “payroll” and “income” taxes. The 2% was a “tax holiday” not a tax cut and it robbed social security for 2 years. No one should be surprised that it has now ended, or even claim that it’s a tax hike. The Bush tax cuts were a bit different, passed with an expiration only because that’s the only way it could be passed.

    But the real point here folks is that Owebama is not done. This is only the beginning and yes, you still have OwebamaCare to contend with – taking even more of your pay check. Wait until you see what you get for it – long lines, fewer doctors and therefore incompetent care, a bureaucracy that will decide if you are worthy of being treated, and less research and development in the medical field.

    Recession? ABSOLUTELY. Depression? Eventually quite possible, but not sure when. After all, Owebama will just continue to have money printed and all of Congress and the Owe admin are good at pretending the debt doesn’t really exist.

    Seen a budget in the last 4 years? Don’t expect one in the future either.
