"I respectfully request the opportunity to address a Joint Session of Congress on September 7, 2011, at 8:00 p.m. I is my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order."
………….President Obama in a letter to a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, requesting to speak before a joint session of Congress next Wednesday night to lay out his jobs proposals.
How rarely do I start my posts with a direct statement from the Doofus-in-Chief?
I could be wrong, but this could be a first for me….but the occasion is so momentous that it deserves that particular honor of leading the way for me.
I don’t know about you but I am not exactly on tenterhooks waiting to see what this idiot has to say.
At least he has followed etiquette and requested “respectfully” that he address a joint session of Congress. This is somewhat surprising because this fool has shown a singular lack of knowledge of etiquette throughout his term. Perhaps he has a new etiquette zsar that we haven’t heard of yet? That would be one answer for this strange behavior!
Anyway, again, I digress.
This is a simple letter to Reid and Boehner. AT just 6 lines in length, one would be reasonably assured that it could not be too dangerous or contain too much BS….so today I am going to take a good hard look at the contents and find out what he is really saying. I may even count the number of lies he manages to include in these six short lines.
The first sentence starts reasonably enough…
“I respectfully request the opportunity to address a Joint Session of Congress on September 7, 2011, at 8:00 p.m.”
This is where we find the first lie. Following etiquette the President must request too speak to Congress…and the leaders of the House and the Senate are expected to accept that request. I don’t know what would happen if Boehner decided to refuse the request and I would love to see him respond as follows…
“Dear Mr. President, I must respectfully decline your request as the House is far too busy solving economic problems and finds it completely out of its focus to waste time listening to you prattle on about jobs. We would rather be taking action than listening to words.”
Of course that is not going to happen because a Presidential request is not a request at all…it is a demand. There is no room to decline. As this is an etiquette thing I will not count this as a lie.
However, the “respectfully” part is an out and out lie. Has Mr.Liar ever shown any respect to the members of Congress who disagree with his policies? Or has he called them people who would prefer to win political points than do what is right for the country? Has he supported their right to have different opinions and voice those opinions, or has he continually berated them as being intransigent? Where is the respect Mr. President? You don’t have any. You call for a kinder more reasoned rhetoric and yet you don’t ask the Congressional Black Caucus to tone it down when they go on their vitriolic rampages. Where is this respect, sir? The answer is simple…you do not have any!!
Your letter, if honest, would leave out that one word….you are a hypocrite when including respectfully in your request.
Lie number 1…just one word in…wow!!
“my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately…”
Mr. Idiot….have you never heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions? I don’t care about your intentions…I want to know what you are ACTUALLY going to do. If you had stated that you are going to lay out a series of plans etc…I would applaud that….but you didn’t…you said what you intention is and that could become something totally different by the time 7th September comes around.
Your use of the term “intention” reeks of deceit when coming from you. You use this to disguise your real agenda and so that when you speak to the joint session you can not held be held accountable for any difference between your request and your actual presentation. These are the words of mealy mouthed politicians always looking for a way out.
A series of “bipartisan proposals”?
Tell me, Mr President….which members of the Republican party, the republican members of congress, have been working with you to create these so called bipartisan proposals? Please name them, sir!
What’s that? You can’t? Would that be because there were none? Would that be because these bipartisan proposals are the brainchild of your advisors (you are too dumb to understand so it cannot be you)?
How can you call them bipartisan when the republican members of congress have not had the opportunity to even see them , let alone debate them.
Bipartisan, my ass!
Lie number 2, Mr. President. Not doing too well are you?
“to continue to rebuild the American economy”
This is lie number 3….to “continue”? Mr. Liar, that word implies that the economy is growing, that your policies have started the rebuilding of the economy. This is a lie…pure and simple. Granted, you did not inherit an economy as strong as you would have liked, but your policies have done nothing but create uncertainty, devalue the dollar, create unemployment, and totally screw the economy.
“economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans”
25 little words….3 big lies in this section.
The first…strengthening small business. How do you claim to be intending to strengthen small business when you consider $250k a year profit as being in the wealthy class and want to tax them at a higher rate? That, sir, weakens small business.
How does the imposition of hundreds of regulations strengthen small business?
You, sir, have done everything in your power to destroy mall business in this country. And now, you lie once more.
Helping Americans get back to work? And you do this how? With shovel ready jobs that are not so shovel ready? By increasing unemployment benefits for up to 3 years? These actions create the jobs? You are an idiot and a liar!
Putting more money in the paychecks of the middle class and working Americans?
Apart from the class warfare inherent in this statement (the implication being that the middle class are not working Americans, and definitely that the wealthy don’t even merit a mention as workers) there is one big thing that he must think we don’t know about yet.
It was only yesterday that this idiot is imploring Congress to pass a transportation bill, which continues to impose a gas tax on ordinary Americans. I understand that a gas tax does not reduce the amount in a pay check. I understand that an extension to the payroll tax reduction will prevent more taxes being removed form the paycheck. So how are you putting more money in their paychecks, huh? Your lies and spin are unacceptable. The government does NOT put money into peoples paychecks. The government takes money OUT of paychecks.
This is the biggest lie and perhaps the most dangerous one of all.
People, listen to me well.
The government does not , never has, and never will put money in your paycheck. This idiot wants you to believe that it does. This is just part of the changing the meaning of words that I have written about so often.
No government puts money into your paychecks. They simply take YOUR money…and from time to time may allow you to keep a little more of what YOU earned.
It is time for us all to stop accepting this lie. It is simply a way to force more control over you, to create a sense of governmental largesse, and keep you tied to the tyranny of the government teat!
“while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order”
While STILL reducing our deficit?
Did this idiot fail remedial mathematics?
Where is the deficit reduction that has started and can now be continued?
I’ve lost count but I think this is lie number….7?
And now for number 8….
“getting our fiscal house in order”
What BS. This president has done nothing to get our fiscal house in order. He has NO intentions of getting it in order. He plans to increase spending on stimulus plans (that are destined to failure) and pay for them by cutting spending at some time in another future…certainly not by cutting spending somewhere else today.
Mr. Liar…this is NOT getting your fiscal house in order.
This is leading the country toward oblivion.
I guess I should be thankful that this letter was only 2 sentences and less than 80 words. BY my math that is one lie for every ten words….
….and this is the man wants us to believe he can lead this country out of our problems if we only give him another 4 years?
Folks, I have said many times that words have meanings. I know that the liberals, the progressives, the socialists and the Marxists all want to assure you that they are just words and have no special meaning. This is a lie.
Words do have meanings.
And even simple, seemingly innocuous groups of words that request a meeting are filled with meaning. Some of the meaning is hidden…some is more easily understood.
Do not treat what this President does with anything other than skepticism….read evry word…hear every meaning…analyse every statement…for only then will you truly be able to understand what he is saying.
With this request he has not simply asked for a meeting….he has set the table, set the stage, for a continuation of the very policies that are destroying our economy. He is warning us all of what we should expect….and I pray that congress has the strength to stand up to this Pretender and say “NO” in no uncertain terms.
But with his clown posse of followers led by Reid and Pelosi and other dumb ass liberal senators and representatives, he will be met by adulating cheers both before and after his speech.
I want one, just one, Joe Wilson to stand up and say…
”Mr. President, you, sir, are a LIAR!
