Barack Obama has continued to prove that he said things to get votes that he had no intention of actually doing. He espoused morals and ideals in order to fool voters.
He is a serial deceptionist, a liar, and more dangerous than Bush. Look how much Bush loves him, that is one tight hug, like I would only give to my dad or brother.
This is because he has erected a cult-following of Dem-bots that will justify anything he does, no matter what.
I do not know why Barack Obama calls him self a Democrat, other than Bush poisoned the Republican brand so bad that Obama opportunisticly rode a wave of NEED for change, and fooled the country in the most Machiavellian and disgusting way.
I pray that Obama does not get a second term, and an actual Democrat can be elected who is truthful, and has one or two progressive bones in his body.
Obama has vast record of breaking his promises on the primary trail. Obama lying to your face is his Modus Operendi:
Hopey-Changey Obama: "I would immediately call the president of Mexico, the president of Canada, to try to amend NAFTA, because I think that we can get labour agreements in that agreement right now," Obama said. "And it should reflect the basic principle that our trade agreements should not just be good for Wall Street; it should also be good for Main Street."
Gotchya Suckers Obama: "Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and amplified,"
bottom line: Obama says slowly and clearly to the 10million auto workers, the whole middle class, unions, and the entire state of Michigan: FUCK YOU! DIE SLOWLY! Barack Obama has no compunction about lying to voters faces about the issues that effect and affect them the most, it was in fact a deliberate strategy. How the fuck did his rhetoric get "overheated and amplified"? What a bunch of bullshit.
Bill Burton issues a statement, October 24, 2007, reaffirming Obama's position and pledging to support Chris Dodd's filibuster:
"To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies."
Gotchya Suckers Obama: Obama votes for cloture on the FISA bill that included retroactive immunity for telecoms
bottom line: Obama threw his lot in with the criminals in our Government, he is no different than any common crook of the Bush Administration. Coopting the arguments, language of Bush, Obama shows the country how he will act when he becomes the King.
Hopey-Changey Obama: Obama says waterboarding is torture, and nobody is above the law.
Gotchya Suckers Obama: Obama mimmicks the exact words of Bush: "The United States doesn't torture." Obama then proceeds in Orwellian language to insist that the last thing the head of the executive branch should do is actually enforce laws, or investigate crimes, cuz they are in the past, and distractions. Except (of course) for the crimes commited by ordinary citizens, who are locked up at the highest rate and totals in all of the Earth.
bottom line: Obama has the gall to pretend like it is his decision alone on who/when/how to prosecute lawbreakers. He shows the country that he thinks that crimes are acceptable if committed by high-ranking government officials.
Torture got worse at Gitmo after Obama was elected according to prisoners there:
"Since the election it's got harsher," Mr Mohamed said. [snip] his chest and penis were slashed with razors
. Obama has claimed King priveleges to ship Muslim prisoners to Bagram and torture them forever with no trial. I think Obama takes pleasure in torturing Muslims, because he resents his middle name, and his father that abandoned him like the garbage he turned out to be.
4. Covering up Government (War) Crimes
My view is also that nobody's above the law and, if there are clear instances of wrongdoing, that people should be prosecuted just like any ordinary citizen.
Gotchya Suckers Obama: President Obama insists "we should be looking forward and not backwards."
bottom line: Covering up War Crimes is a War Crime. Obama is no better than Bush on this. But we are just "ordinary citizens" so why should King Obama care about what he says to us?
5. Blackmailing the citizenry of Britain
Hopey-Changey Obama: OK, there was never any pretense here, but this is so dispicable and thuggish it needs to be pointed out to as wide an audience as possible
Gotchya Suckers Obama:
bottom line: Obama is commiting an international War Crime by covering up War Crimes, and he is committing a crime in Brittain by covering up evidence of the torture of one of their citizens. I hope all you Dems out there are proud of Obama blackmailing a whole country and threatening them with a terrorist attack unless they too illegally cover up for Bush's War Crimes. Fucking awesome!
6. Health Care
May 14, 2007
Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, seeking support from labor union members in New Jersey, vowed Monday to make health insurance available to all Americans by the end of his first term in the White House.
''We can have universal health care by the end of the next president's first term, by the end of my first term,'' Obama said, bringing 600 union workers to their feet during a question-and-answer session with members of AFL-CIO affiliated unions.
Gotchya Suckers Obama:
"Got the little single-payer advocates up here.....The only problem is that we're not starting from scratch. We have historically a tradition of employer-based health care. ....We don't want a huge disruption as we go into health care reform where suddenly we're trying to completely reinvent one-sixth of the economy...... If you don't have health care or you're highly unsatisfied with your health care, then let's give you choices, let's give you options, ....produce a bill before the August recess. And it may not have everything I want in there or everything you want in there, but it will be a vast improvement over what we currently have."
bottom line: I supported Obama in the primary, but I always thought Clinton's healthcare plan was better. It is still extremely disheartening. We are looking at at least 8 years of the same shitty for profit abuses and poor health care. Obama has his public option, why should he care about others? Additionally, it was those union workers' own faults for believing what Obama said, not Obama's fault for lying yet again.
7. Military Commisions
Hopey-Changey Obama: "we need not throw away 200 years of American jurisprudence while we fight terrorism"
Gotchya Suckers Obama: "will permit commissions to prosecute terrorists effectively ... This is the best way to protect our country, while upholding our deeply held values"
bottom line: I'm glad Obama doesn't even attempt to explain why we can't use our existing courts to try terrorists. After all, once he is elected King, he is the only person whose opinion matters. He is so much smarter than us "ordinary citizens", we wouldn't be able to understand anyway.
8. DADT (gay bashing)
Hopey-Changey Obama AND Gotchya Suckers Obama: http://www.towleroad.com/2009/05/jon-stewart-nails-obama-on-dont-ask-dont-tell.html link to John Stewart showing Obama's continued hypocrisy and outright dishonesty
bottom line: way to break the stereo type of the homophobic black guy, you should be proud of yourself Obama! And the bigger threat to our security is gays translating versus the backlog of wiretaps of suspected terrorists. FAAAABULOUS!
I am done with Obama, he is worse than Clinton. He lets Al Franken and Dawn Johnsen languish, he lets cramdown fail by not lifting a finger, he plays King and knights Arlen Specter the next Democratic Senator (fuck what the voters of PA think) and makes Gillibrand his annointed dutchess. I don't think anybody voted for any of this shit! If we wanted all these disgusting behaviors from a President we would have voted for John McCain.
Face it, Obama is a fraud, additced to the power of lies and deceit. It appears to me that Obama's top priorities are:
1. (TIE) redistributing wealth from the taxpayers to the banksters AND playing basketball
2. permanent land war in Asia (how did that work out for the Romans, Greeks, and Russians?)
3. the rendition, permanent imprisonment and torture (especially slicing of penises) of Arab Muslims at his personal whim
4. Covering up the crimes of the Bush Admin, supressing evidence, or whole lawsuits by claiming national security
5. Keeping enough Republicans and Blue Dogs (Specter, Coleman, Gates) in power so that he has an excuse to not enact any of the meaningful promises he made
6. Letting EFCA fail, or become so watered down it is no change
I fully expect Obama to appoint a Federalist Society member to the supreme court to cap off his DINO performance
