Is President Obama Lying to the American People?

The middle class is angry at the shenanigans of Barack Obama and the give-away Congress, and the Boston Tea Party is being widely recalled as the first American tax payers revolt. Rick Santelli's "Chicago Tea Party" has gone viral, 94% of over 200,000 Internet voters have indicated that they would like to join. To add insult to injury, the Wall Street Journal is pointing out that Barack Obama's new housing plan not only will rescue the unscrupulous or irresponsible by throwing good taxpayer money after bad loans, it will also reward people who bought homes they knew the could not afford. This is in direct contradiction to what President Obama said yesterday, and it's sad to note that makes Barack Obama a liar. You can read the Wall Street Journal for details, but we warn you that the article may ruin at least part of your day.

The article ends with the heart of much of the problem: "What investors, businesses and working Americans want to hear is a President with ideas to spur economic recovery. What they've been getting are plans for a long national Chapter 11 workout."

I would note that my inbox is full of messages from people who can't believe that this is happening in America. The mood is not good.

Yep. Santelli is right on the mark. To paraphrase Peter Finch in "Network," "[people are] mad as hell and [we're] not going to put up with it any more." Or, at least I wish more people felt that way. The irony is Obama plans to have a "Financial Responsibility" seminar at the White House Monday. Given his plans for the country, I cannot begin to imagine what he could legitimately have to say about financial responsibility -- other than "It's not about PERSONAL financial responsibility, it's about SHARED financial responsibility." Some might even go so far as to insert collective for the word shared......

Why pussy foot around; he's a Commie, pure and simple. By the way, he owes Chicago about $2 million for his victory party and his campaign is making all the excuses one hears from people who don't like to pay their bills. Anybody ever run a credit check on this guy?

If it wasn't so scary I might feel sorry for him. Clearly, Obama is very, very lost.
