Fact checking Obama's State Of The Union Address..

Actually the head line should have said, "Analyzing Obama's Lies to the country"

We have known from the start that Obama has love affair with exaggerations!!! but we are glad to see that, finally, AP is fact checking Obama's claims:

OBAMA: "Because of the steps we took, there are about 2 million Americans working right now who would otherwise be unemployed. ... And we are on track to add another one and a half million jobs to this total by the end of the year."

THE FACTS: The success of the Obama-pushed economic stimulus that Congress approved early last year has been an ongoing point of contention. In December, the administration reported that recipients of direct assistance from the government created or saved about 650,000 jobs. The number was based on self-reporting by recipients and some of the calculations were shown to be in error.

OBAMA: He called for action by the White House and Congress "to do our work openly, and to give our people the government they deserve."

THE FACTS: Obama skipped past a broken promise from his campaign — to have the negotiations for health care legislation broadcast on C-SPAN "so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies."

But there are more whoppers that AP did not cover, you can read more of them here.

UPDATE: wow! more pople are writing about Obama's lies in his State Of The Union address...Read here.

Obama Hires Campaign Manager To Help Him With Economy!

We are not kidding!

In the wake of bad economical data and loosing Massachusetts, Obama decides to hire his campaign manager! Not a new economic team. Not a new chief of staff. Not even a new national security staff to replace the gang that dropped the ball on the Christmas Day bomber. No, with the Obami, it is never about substance or getting the policy right. It’s not about governance. It is about the perpetual campaign. So the campaign manager gets the emergency call.

Here is the news link:

Daivd Plouffe, the man who managed President Barack Obama’s campaign, will be taking on an expanded role as an outside adviser to the White House, according to sources familiar with the plan, a move that comes just days after a stunning defeat for Democrats in a Massachusetts Senate special election.

Obama's first year!

GOLF: 29 rounds of golf
• George W. Bush played golf 7 times his first year.

Obama's Magic Was Based On Lies!

  • What went wrong? A year ago, he was king of the world.
  • A year ago, he was leader of a liberal ascendancy that would last 40 years (James Carville)
  • A year ago, Obama was the most charismatic politician on Earth.
Today the thrill is gone, the doubts growing -- even among erstwhile believers.

PROMISES, PROMISES: Many Obama pledges unkept

We have been saying this for months now...but we are glad to see major media reporting on Obama's promises:

During his two-year campaign, Obama thrilled massive crowds with soaring speeches, often railing against an Iraq war that now is seldom mentioned. His presidential comments now are often sober updates on issues like terrorism and the economy, a top priority now that emerged as a major issue only in the campaign's final weeks.

Obama's campaign ambition has been diluted with a pragmatism that has been the hallmark of Year One - without much of the progress he had hoped.

A look at some of the promises:

What a waste of a year!!! People were fooled in voting for him and they will pay the price for votingthe most inexperienced president we've ever had! What a shame!

Obama should call Senator to Resign! Let's be consistent .

In light of President Obama's decision to forgive Harry Reid's remarks about Obama's skin color and lack of a "Negro dialect," check out what Obama said about Trent Lott in 2002:

Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D-13th), who hosted WVON's Cliff Kelley Show, challenged the Republican Party to repudiate Lott's remarks and to call for his resignation as senate leader.

"It seems to be that we can forgive a 100-year-old senator for some of the indiscretion of his youth, but, what is more difficult to forgive is the current president of the U.S. Senate (Lott) suggesting we had been better off if we had followed a segregationist path in this country after all of the battles and fights for civil rights and all the work that we still have to do," said Obama.

He said: "The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party."

--From the December 12, 2002 issue of the Chicago Defender.

Obama's Promise On Healthcare!!

Check this out:

Do we have a "Liar-in-Chief" at the White House?? I know this will not be the first "Lier-in-Chief", but Obama promised us "Change"!!!!

Perhaps Congressman Joe Wilson should receive the Congressional Medal of Honor for shouting out “You Lie” to Obama during his speech to Congress last year. hmm.

Christmas attack and Obama's whereabouts !

Obama waited three days before speaking about the Christmas Day attack!!!

What took him so long? Washington Post report:
Aides said Obama at no point considered cutting short his trip, and they said he still had fun despite the unexpected crises. He played golf and basketball, went snorkeling and to the gym, and ate at his favorite Honolulu restaurant. His wife and children went to the beach, and his family spent time with a group of Chicago friends who traveled to Hawaii with them and with Oahu residents who have known Obama since childhood.

As this Politico story notes, the Christmas Day bombing plot has shaken the Obama administration and his supporters, leaving the latter flummoxed. They can’t seem to understand the president’s clueless reaction, which verged on peevish resentment over the interruption to his vacation:

Over the course of five days, Obama’s reaction ranged from low-keyed to reassuring to, finally, a vow to find out what went wrong. The episode was a baffling, unforced error in presidential symbolism, hardly a small part of the presidency, and the moment at which yet another of the old political maxims that Obama had sought to transcend – the Democrats’ vulnerability on national security – reasserted itself.

What is remarkable is that there seems to be some mystery as to why Obama behaved as he did:

Explanations of Obama’s low-key reaction in the face of a terror attack include the characteristic caution of a president who resists jumping to conclusions and being pushed to action. They also include the White House’s belief – disproven repeatedly in 2009 – that it can evade the clich├ęd rules of politics, which include a suspicion of Democratic leadership on national security. Only Sunday night, when criticism of the system “worked” comment was not going away, did White House aides realize their approach was not working and that they needed to shift course.
