“I Didn’t Say ‘Change We Can Believe in TOMORROW'”: Obama In His Own Words (Part 2)

Barack Obama, 2006:

“Raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.”

Barack Obama, 2006:

“Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.”

Barack Obama, 2011:

“Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit for the United States by a trillion dollars. As president, you start realizing, you know what, we can’t play around with this stuff. This is the full faith and credit of the United States. And so that was just an example of a new senator making what is a political vote as opposed to doing what was important for the country.”

I guess it all just depends upon whose ox is being gored.

Barack Obama, 2011:

“When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we can believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy.”

(Note to Obama: the United States is not a democracy, nor was it ever intended to be. The United States is a Constitutional Republic wherein the right to life and property are inalienable and therefore not subject to vote.)

Barack Obama, 2011:

“This is my vision for America: A vision where we live within our means while still investing in our future.”

Barack Obama, 2009:

“If I don’t fix the economy in three years, I’ll be a one term president.”

Barack Obama, 2011:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you, not just on immigration reform….”

Barack Obama, 2008:

“Just because you possess an individual right doesn’t mean local governments can’t constrain the exercise of that right.”

Barack Obama, 2008:

“[My grandmother] is a typical white person.”

    While B.O. (no, not body odor, the other foul stench with those initials) would not hesitate to call me a name, and often has along with others like me, I will delete the explicatives and instead say the one nice thing I know about him.
    As soon as I figure out what that is.

    The thing that pisses me off most about Obama’s quotes is that he didn’t change America at all, in fact, he merely continued the statist trend of government of the last 100 years (Federal Reserve was created in 1913). Why won’t the Demicans and Republicrats just come out of the closet and tell us the truth, they both support the welfare/warfare state, and they understand that to continue this form of governance, they will have to take more of our rights away. It’s obvious, so lets just admit it, no?

    B. Hussein Obama January 2009: “Our [stimulus plan] will likely save or create three to four million jobs. 90 percent of these jobs will be created in the private sector.”

    Jay Carney August 2011: “Well, the White House doesn’t create jobs.”

    I like many watched these morons circle jerk for the last two years. But the last two weeks was the grand finale` of dysfunction comparable only to growing up watching my parents get drunk, fight, then screw.
    Once I saw the S&P spokespersons quote in a CNN article I didn’t feel so cynical and judgmental.
    Its sad.
    We weren’t downgraded for lack of futures revenues.
    We were downgraded for looking like Keystone cops on acid, idiots.
    (By Charles Riley @CNNMoney August 6, 2011: 12:36 PM ET)

    “n July, S&P placed the United States’ rating on “CreditWatch with negative implications” as the debt ceiling debate devolved into partisan bickering.”

    “S&P also cited dysfunctional policymaking in Washington as a factor in the downgrade. “The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America’s governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed.”

    Absolutely embarrassing

    I walked into my boss’s office today, and told him that with these hard times, I was willing to take a pay cut, that they only had to give me a 7% raise this year rather than the 10% I had planned on.
    Once he was done laughing, he asked “What do you think this is? Washington?”
