Obama stands in front of Teleprompters, cameras and the American people proclaiming big things for the nation. He orates what we want and what we need to hear, then he does just the opposite. Few members of broadcast or print media cover the actions, just the words gloriously spoken. Reconciling his words and actions is impossible.
While campaigning, Senator Barack Obama promised to bring a new level of transparency to Washington, and to preside over the “most transparent administration in U.S. history”. He repeats the phrase frequently. The most transparent administration in U.S. history is a prime example of the man’s use of doublespeak. There are more “closed doors” at the White House daily than in any federal prison in a month.
“You should know that keeping the economy growing and making sure jobs are available is the first thing I think about when I wake up every morning. It’s the last thing I think about when I go to bed each night.” Between the IRS and excess taxation on businesses, the EPA with endless regulations requiring costly compliance, HHS and Obamacare jacking up the cost of doing business and other obstacles and hurdles he places in the way of job and economic growth, his actions mean to stifle the economy and destroy jobs.
He must also counsel his appointed goons in Obama transparency. For instance, Lois Lerner testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “I have not done anything wrong, I have not broken any laws, I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations and I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee.” “While I would very much like to answer the committee’s questions today, I have been advised by my counsel to assert my constitutional right not to testify or answer questions related to the subject manner of this hearing,” Lerner said.
The constitutional right to which she referred is the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which reads, in part, “No person…shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…” Lerner, if she answered any questions, would either, (1) further perjure herself or (2) admit that she did, in fact, commit the wrongs she denied previously; she would have become a witness against herself.
How about Hillary balking, dodging, avoiding, delaying and otherwise stalling for months before articulating the now infamous words, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Of course, who can forget Obama’s lap licking Lewinski, Nancy Pelosi? She actually said that people on Welfare stimulate the economy. “For every dollar a person receives in food stamps, $1.79 is put back into the economy.” “It is the biggest bang for the buck when you do food stamps and unemployment insurance. The biggest bang for the buck,” she said.
That statement actually illustrates the inefficiency of government. The administration costs and waste involved in getting a usable dollar to its intended target is just about 80%. Statements like hers are known as unintended truths.
However, using Pelosi’s logic, wouldn’t it follow that if every American quit working and received nothing but food stamps and unemployment insurance the economy would grow by 179% or more almost instantly? We could continue to grow the economy even more and faster by awarding COLAs and merit raises to the monthly stipend deposits of those robbing banks and liquor stores. This kind of twisted logic seems to work for Pelosi.
Fewer people working and more people drawing down on the government coffers, yeah that’s got to be the answer to economic stability. If we could just contract with foreign companies to build a website for Obamacare that doesn’t work, pay them ten times what the cost should be. We could then pay them a few hundred million dollars extra to actually make the site work. That should stimulate the American economy and make taxpayers proud.
You can bet that if our President says something publicly, it is his intent to perform in an irreconcilable manner. It’s the effective use of antonyms.
