Obama Gets It Wrong

In both ways.

He told us his health care plan would reduce our costs.  But as the numbers come in, we find out that our costs - through taxation if not direct payments to doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies - are soon to skyrocket.

And now this:
CBO: Obamacare Will Leave 30 Million Uninsured
By Patrick Burke, CNS News

A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report says that under the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, 30 million non-elderly Americans will remain without health insurance in 2022.

One of the main arguments the Obama administration made for passing the Affordable Care Act was that it would provide coverage for the uninsured.

Currently, accoriding to CBO, there are 53 million uninsured persons in the United States, including uninsured illegal aliens. The CBO estimates that in 2022--8 years after the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented--30 million people will remain uninsured.

Moreover, under Obamacare, 8 percent of legal U.S. residents will remain without health insurance in 2022, according to CBO. [link]
Expect Michelle Obama, when she becomes President in 2022, to call for a sweeping overhaul of our completely screwed-up health care system, a reform that will reduce costs, provide universal coverage, and ...

They'll never stop.

And then there are the hidden costs:

We're in big trouble.

Obama Is Right

The future of our country depends on the outcome:

Obama Says Election Will ‘Tip the Balance’ on the Supreme Court

He's one liberal away from being able to seize our guns and make us subservient to his government.

I recommend that we not allow that.

It's Only Money

And taxpayer money at that.  So who cares?

Fed Agency Leases Luxury SUV That Violates Obama’s Fuel Efficiency Standards to Transport Obama Appointee Three Blocks

As of 06:11 this morning, the national debt sat at $15,912,062,243,224.76.

Not that it matters to them.

Obama campaign denies knowing story of man in Super PAC cancer ad but hosted May conference call during which he told them the same story

The Sleaze We're Up Against

They'll stop at nothing:
Obama's Campaign of Lies Reaches Despicable Low
Investor's Business Daily editorial

Unable to run on his record, President Hope-and-Change has built a campaign based entirely on scurrilous lies about Mitt Romney. But the latest reaches a historic, despicable low.

That ad features a man claiming that after Bain Capital closed his steel plant, he lost his job and his insurance, and shortly thereafter his wife died of cancer.

Even it were true, trying to blame Romney for his wife's death defies credulity. But the facts are all wrong.

Romney had left Bain to run the summer Olympics two years before Joe Soptic lost his job in 2001. And his wife had her own job and insurance at that time. She later took a disability leave and lost her coverage, and her cancer was apparently symptom-free until she checked into a hospital for pneumonia in 2006.

The ad, sponsored by an Obama "super-PAC" was too much even for the in-the-Obama-tank press. CNN's Wolf Blitzer called it "a pretty outrageous claim," and Sam Stein of the Obama-worshipping Huffington Post said it went "too far."

The Obama campaign has refused to denounce the ad, which is understandable, since when you lie as often as it does, the lines of propriety start to get blurry. [link]
Never in my lifetime have I seen a political ad as despicable as this one that was put out by the Obama people. But then never in my lifetime have I seen an America as wrecked as ours is today. I'd probably be desperate to change the subject too.

That's not to excuse it though. Obama and the worms who work for him should be ashamed of themselves.

We All Look Alike

To Manhattan liberals who never venture out into the real world anyway.

Skinheads.  Nazis.  Tea Party patriots.

We're all the same.

Ignorant bastards.

And We Speak To Each Other In 'Code'

Because we don't want them to know what we're saying to each other?

This would be hilarious if it weren't so insulting:

Chris Matthews Disgustingly Claims New Romney Ad Contains Racial Codes

It's about welfare.  Matthews thinks everyone on welfare is black.

Ain't no code needed to convey his message.  His words will do just fine.

Let Me Guess

When I saw the headline I said to myself, "but he went anyway."

I was wrong.

The headline:

Judge expresses regret for lavish Hawaii conference

I was wrong.  He didn't attend that lavish conference in Hawaii that will cost the taxpayers millions.

It hasn't taken place yet.

And he's still going.  And will regret it the whole time he's laying on the beach.

"'In hindsight, had we foreseen the nation’s current fiscal problems, we may have chosen a different site for this year’s conference,' wrote Alex Kozinski, chief judge for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California, in a letter to two Republican senators released Wednesday."

So you know, this Kozinski character is as liberal as they come.

Especially with taxpayer money.

An so it goes ...
