Rush Limbaugh: If Obama Agenda is Socialist “I want him to fail”

Some have jumped on Rush’s comment on wanting President Obama to fail and tried to use it against him. The problem here is that Rush actually put conditions on what he said. He said that if Obama were to cut taxes and not roll back the Bush tax cuts then he would want him to succeed. However if Obama governs as a Socialist, he says, then Obama should fail.

And I agree.

Zogby Poll: Obama supporters are uninformed!

Zogby has just released a poll that shows that Obama supporters are uninformed,

Just 2% of voters who supported Barack Obama on Election Day obtained perfect or near-perfect scores on a post election test which gauged their knowledge of statements and scandals associated with the presidential tickets during the campaign, a new Zogby International telephone poll shows.

Only 54% of Obama voters were able to answer at least half or more of the questions correctly.

The 12-question, multiple-choice survey found questions regarding statements linked to Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his vice-presidential running-mate Sarah Palin were far more likely to be answered correctly by Obama voters than questions about statements associated with Obama and Vice-President–Elect Joe Biden. The telephone survey of 512 Obama voters nationwide was conducted Nov. 13-15, 2008, and carries a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percentage points. The survey was commissioned by John Ziegler, author of The Death of Free Speech, producer of the recently released film “Blocking the Path to 9/11” and producer of the upcoming documentary film, Media Malpractice…How Obama Got Elected.

“After I interviewed Obama voters on Election Day for my documentary, I had a pretty low opinion of what most of them had picked up from the media coverage of the campaign, but this poll really proves beyond any doubt the stunning level of malpractice on the part of the media in not educating the Obama portion of the voting populace,” said Ziegler. . . .

Obama voters did not fare nearly as well overall when asked to answer questions about statements or stories associated with Obama or Biden — 83% failed to correctly answer that Obama had won his first election by getting all of his opponents removed from the ballot, and 88% did not correctly associate Obama with his statement that his energy policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry. Most (56%) were also not able to correctly answer that Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground.

Earlier the poll mentioned that Obama supporters were able to answer to the derogatory statement of Palin saying she could see Russia from Alaska. But apparently they don’t know shit about the history of the man they elected. . . . My god!! I am so glad I did’t vote for Obama. Like hell I’d want to be like these guys.

Nearly three quarters (72%) of Obama voters did not correctly identify Biden as the candidate who had to quit a previous campaign for President because he was found to have plagiarized a speech, and nearly half (47%) did not know that Biden was the one who predicted Obama would be tested by a generated international crisis during his first six months as President.

No surprise here. Moving on,

In addition to questions regarding statements and scandals associated with the campaigns, the 12-question, multiple-choice survey also included a question asking which political party controlled both houses of Congress leading up to the election — 57% of Obama voters were unable to correctly answer that Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.

What? WHAT?! — They couldn’t even answer that? So these people were voting for “change” without knowing that the ones promissing “change” were already in the majority in power? Geez!!!

If you are one of these uninformed jack asses that match this profile that voted for Obama then please do America two favors: 1) Never vote, and 2) Please do not reproduce!



Economist: Obama’s Economic Plan will only make the problem worse

CBS News on Obama Infomercial: “The Numbers just don’t add up”

Filed under: Democrats, Economy, McCain, Media Bias, Obama, Republicans, Sarah Palin | Tags: , ,

That’s right! Even the Liberal CBS News network knows that Obama’s plans presented in the glamorousinfomercial released yesterday says that the numbers and costs of Obama’s plan just doesn’t add up,

Without question, the Barack Obama infomercial served as a very slick and powerful recitation of the biggest promises he’s made as a presidential candidate. But the very bigness of his ideas is the problem: he seems blind to the concept his numbers don’t add up.

Obama has already proposed a new stimulus package of $188 billion over two years. His tax cuts will cost $85 billion a year. His “army of new teachers”: $18 billion. Renewable energy: $15 billion. CBS News and various independent experts estimate Obama’s total first year spending could exceed $280 billion.

(Link: CBS News)

I am absolutely surprised that this is coming out of the Liberal media, saying Obama’s plan is just way to expensive. I am shocked!

Still Obama repeated his claim he can find the money to pay for every proposal.

“I’ve offered spending cuts above and beyond their cost,” he has said.

The fact is the savings Obama has identified do not cover his spending. According to a CBS News estimate, he’s around $90 billion short. The Obama campaign disputes this, saying everything including the stimulus is paid for over 10 years. But other analysts say – even presuming Obama saves money in Iraq and chops the federal budget as promised – he falls short.

Let’s break all of this down, starting with his highly suspect, and widely discredited, claim that he can find federal “spending cuts beyond the costs” of his promises. Very few independent economists believe he has identified the savings needed to offset his remarkable list of tax credits, tax cuts and spending pledges.

Fact: Even if you believe Obama intends to fix health care, most independent analysts say the cost is massive – $1.2 trillion over ten years, according to the highly respected Lewin Group. When the new Congress wakes up next year to a $1 trillion deficit, and answers the overwhelming new demands for another stimulus package, will the leadership really bite on a health care reform package that digs the deficit hole so much deeper?

And that’s just the beginning of what Obama would spend.

Wow! I knew Obama would be one hell of an expensive president, but this is just way too much. — Did I mention this was CBS News and not a Right Wing hack site? — I did? — Yes, I thought so. 🙂

Fact: The tax cuts he promises, which are mostly refundable tax credits (code for cash back), will cost $60 billion just in year one, according the National Taxpayers Union, though the Obama campaign’s own estimates in July put that figure at $130 billion.

Well, so much for the Obama tax cuts for the middle class. — But this next fact is very important,

Fact: His new promise to give businesses a $3,000 tax credit for each new job created will cost $40 billion. But economists say this credit is far more likely to benefit companies already planning to expand and will likely not be enough to help companies create new jobs or forestall layoffs.

WOAH!! HOLD IT!!! — Obama promisses to create new jobs and forestall layoffs, but his $40 billion plan is not enough, as expensive as it is? Wow!!

Next, CBS refutes Obama on health care,

Fact: Obama’s claim he will lower health care premiums by $2,500 is: 1.) guesswork, which is 2.) based on health care savings that might, in a perfect world, happen over 10 years – a fact Obama neatly glosses over.

And the next and last huge Obama cost,

Fact: Obama, when referring to savings he can make by leaving Iraq ($90 billion, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates), has spent these savings several times over, across several different promises depending on the crowd he’s addressing.

Most of the time he spends the Iraq savings in the context of the roads he wants to build; sometimes it’s for the teachers he wants to hire. Tonight, he riffed rhetorically on the savings, asking how many scholarships could be funded, or how many schools could be built. In the end though, presuming he really saves $90 billion, he can only spend it once.

Remember he also mentioned rebuilding the military ($7 billion/yr); his education initiative ($18 billion/yr); and his energy initiative ($15 billion/yr). He did not mention the $188 billion that he would spend on the brand new stimulus package he has proposed.

All I have to say is “Wow.” — My hat is off to CBS News for cutting through the crap at least once in a long time. –Also, to see another fact check on the Obama Infomercial click here.



McCain got his bounce apparently

Good news for John McCain and those of us who are supporting him. The latest Gallup tracking poll from the 7th of September shows McCain has a 3 point lead over Obama (Click here) 48%-45% among “registered voters.” — Also, in the Zogby Poll (Click here), McCain now has a 4 point lead, 49.7% – 45.9 with “likely voters.”

A newer USA Today/Gallup Poll (not to be confused with the Daily tracking Gallup Poll) that came out a few moments ago says that McCain now leads among “registered voters” by 50 – 46. — However, among “likely voters” McCain’s lead expands to a double digit lead, 54% – 44%. (Read by clicking here).

The only poll that seems to show them as in a single point is Rasmussen, but that to may change.



Barack Obama Is Not a US Citizen and therefore shouldn’t be President

In recent days, evidence has come to light that Barack Obama may not be a a U.S. citizen and therefore should be disqualified to be President of the United States. — Here is the story that many have not covered and have ignored:

Birth Certificate Found in Kenya. Citizen of Kenya and Indonesia. Hawaiian Certificate Forged.

On Aug. 21st attorney Philip J. Berg requested an injunction in Federal Court against the nomination of Barack Obama, citing evidence that candidate Barack Obama is not a US citizen, and “the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.”

Berg argues that Barack Obama was born in Kenya in 1961 to an American woman, Stanley Ann Dunham, and a Kenyan man, Barack Hussein Obama Senior, as reportedly shown by a birth certificate from Mombasa Maternity Hospital. According to the law at that time, a parent could pass US citizenship on to a child born abroad if the parent was at least 19 years old. Obama’s mother was only 18.

No hospital birth certificate has been produced to show Obama was born in Hawaii, only a certificate of birth registry after the fact, which forensics experts have denounced as a forgery.

Moreover, when Obama was six years old his mother remarried and moved with her husband to his country, Indonesia. Records indicate Obama was naturalized as an Indonesian citizen. Indonesia does not allow dual nationality, so even had he been born in Hawaii, he would have lost his citizenship then.

Obama says he would delay rescinding tax cuts?
September 7, 2008, 7:43 pm
Filed under: Democrats, Obama, Republicans | Tags: , ,

I was surprised to read this, but Obama seems to have come around on repealing the Bush tax cuts:

Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush’s tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt the economy.

Nevertheless, Obama has no plans to extend the Bush tax cuts beyond their expiration date, as Republican John McCain advocates. (Yahoo! News)

He admits that rescinding the tax cuts would further hurt the economy, but refuses to extend them. — In other words, Obama is recognizes the harm repealing them would do, but is willing to let them expire and allow the same dammage to be done, just on a delayed basis. — What a joke!!
