Just a Reminder
— Slublog

Barack Obama, October 15, 2008:

But there is no doubt that we've been living beyond our means and we're going to have to make some adjustments.

Now, what I've done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut. I haven't made a promise about...

...What I want to emphasize, though, is that I have been a strong proponent of pay-as- you-go. Every dollar that I've proposed, I've proposed an additional cut so that it matches.

How's that promise working out for everyone?

One of the most important messages the GOP needs to communicate between now and November is that during the campaign, the president repeatedly lied to the American people. The question is, should we reward him for those lies by keeping his party in power, or should we hold him accountable for them by putting a check on his ability to continue crushing our economy?

He campaigned in the middle to get elected, and then he did what every democrat does.  Obama moved to the left to govern.


Democrats are all liars.  They and their media lap-dogs are in power to fool.

12 And remind people that insurance is math and statistics. Given a competitive marketplace, you can't make it 'cheaper' or 'too expensive'. It covers what it covers and costs what it costs. If the gov't suddenly decides, for instance, to double roulette payouts, guess what? Vegas has to double the cost of playing. Marxist frauds.

The GOP should make a series of ads showcasing Obama's campaign promises - vs. Obama's actual hard left actions.

Of course, there isn't enough space/time to actually commit that to a 30/60 second spot.

There are lies, and there is treason. The traitor-in-chief crossed the line long ago, and thanks to his media enablers and Congress, he is getting away with it.

30 If the GOP is willing to call him a "liar," then that might be a good sign that they've got the stones to fight him properly this Fall.

The Democrats spent eight years shrieking that Bush was a liar, even though he wasn't, and the GOP must be willing to be as forceful.  It should be easy enough, too, given that Obama is a liar.

But if they go the "my friendsh" route ala McCain, we're doomed.

Romney is sullied by Masscare.  Palin--as much as I like her personally, not sure she's ready for prime time.  Paul Ryan is an unknown quantity. I'll support the GOP, but it needs to do a better job of encouraging good people to run (whoever they are).

I posted this over at HotAir a few days ago in response to a liberal troll:

Here is what Barack Obama promised during the campaign on health care reform:

1. No individual mandate - he was VERY clear about this because it was a way to attack Hillary, who supported a mandate.  Many, many debate clips can be found of him trashing an individual mandate, claiming that the reason so many people don't have health insurance is simply because they can't afford it, not because they just don't feel like paying for it.

2. ALL negotiations on C-SPAN - not just a last-miunte, fig-leaf, staged "summit" with Republicans after the bills have already passed the House and Senate.

3. NO special interest deals  - yet the entire bill is one giant special interest deal for the insurance companies, Big Pharma, and the AMA.

4. EVERYONE who likes their current plan and doctor will be able to keep it.  EVERYONE.  Not, "everyone except seniors who like their Medicare Advantage Plans," or "everyone except smart people who know the best use of their money is to buy high-deductible catastrophic plans with a Health Savings Account." 

5. Health insurance premiums will fall by an average of $3000.  We haven't heard much about that one lately, but he said it in about a gazillion campaign speeches.

And this doesn't even count the ways this legislative process violated other promises he made about "changing the cukture in Washington", like posting all legislation for 72 hours, and waiting five days for the public to comment before he signs anything. 

Republicans can play a nice game of jujitsu on this, highlighting the ways ObamaCare violates the promises made that progressives liked in Democratic districts, while highlighting the violations of promises that conservatives and independents liked in more conservative districts.

I don't disagree.
If there was someone better than JD Hayworth, I'd be all for getting rid of McCain.  McCain is not a bad person.  But dude, serious, retire already.  I agree the GOP needs fresh talent.  Still, we have to work with what we have and we too need to promote and inspire people to get up and run.

The frustrating aspect of the GOP is there inability to let fresh new people have a chance.  Here in CO - we could have had Josh Penry run for governor and he would have been amazing.  But no - the "establishment" candidate stepped in and pushed Penry out. The GOP are short-sided morons, but what is the alternative?

I have my gripes with the GOP on many levels.  But the choice in Nov is going to be simple: imperfect GOP vs. Socialism.  Pick.

69 O doesn't care. He has achieved his "legacy". First black and the guy who got health care for all Americans. That's what the history books will show. It doesn't matter if HCR is repealed or scaled back, doesn't matter if the economy goes in the tank, doesn't matter if every word the man ever uttered was a flat out lie. The only way to make Big O sit up and pay attention now is to threaten that legacy and the only way to do that is to get the press to turn on him.

So, all you can do is teach your children the truth, because by the time they are in school and studying this "history", the truth will be long gone.

What happened on March 23rd?   In the year 2010, we know that Barrack Obama signed his Health Care Legislation into law against the will of the American People.   Since no one knows for sure what is in this legislation yet, who knows what powers it gives the government.   But, what significance does March 23rd have in history?   On that date in 1933, the Ermächtigungsgesetz (Enalbing Act)  became law in Germany.   The  Ermächtigungsgesetz was the second major act through which Chancellor Adolf Hitler legally obtained plenary powers and established his dictatorship.

Just a coincident. Move along.

80 You could cut the defense spending and spending for every other federal agency.  Heck, cut every other federal outlay except Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, HCR and interest payments of federal debt - and PAY/GO would still fail.

Somewhere down the line, those precious entitlements need to be reformed or axed.  If not, Pay/Go is just a pipe dream.

(Ooh, can I play?)

Barack Obama from 2008: "Now what do you think would have happened to you retirees if the Republicans had their way and your Social Security was invested in the stock market these last few weeks?"

I'm paraphrasing from memory but it's very close. By the way, if the Republicans had had their way, retirees Social Security money wouldn't have been eligible for privatization. But I guess it's not lying if it's phrased as a question, though. (By the way, is Cincinnati still the capital of Texas?)

85 harley, why bother talking to the troll? Obviously, he's vituperative and uninformed. Remember, whenever a leftist speaks, he lies. Oh to recall all the concern the lefties had for debt spending 3 years ago, back when we were fighting a war, rebuilding New Orleans, and, alas, "rebuilding our infrastructure $250bil" and Bush's medicare expansion. Now, debt? Not so much a concern for the left. At least us conservatives were bitching about Bush spending money back then.

89 I see faint signs of hope. I overheard one of my co-workers, a 30-ish female, call Obama an "asshole". Why? Because of the. I jumped in to point out what else he has done (to keep the momentum going, and to check out her tan). If we can pick up the normally apolitical bimbettes, were on the right track!

Your concern for the mounting debt is impressive, considering you didn't give a shit about the debt for the past 8 years.

I know math is hard, but come on at least try.

92 Even his "uhs" are lies. He can't move his lips without lying. As for "paygo" that was a Democrap lie before Obama graduated from college. It alsways has been a lie designed to fool the idiot Peggy Joeseph's when the communists opposed tax cuts by the Republicans.

93 I was gonna sockpuppet a leftard troll and submit a one word comment consisting of the word "Bush", but I see a leftard troll has dutifully crapped on the thread already.

More evidence of the permanent campaign. Duh Won's been President for more than a year, but 'the last 8 years' still falls from the lips of dumb lefties everywhere as shorthand for the Bush administration.  B to the O could have two terms and these tools will still whinging about Bush with the phrase 'past 8 years'.

95 "How's that promise working out for everyone?"

About as well as the GOP promises for small government.

"One of the most important messages the GOP needs to communicate between now and November is that during the campaign, the president repeatedly lied to the American people. The question is, should we reward him for those lies by keeping his party in power, or should we hold him accountable for them by putting a check on his ability to continue crushing our economy?"

Funny, that's how the GOP got Obama elected.

Right now the only thing the GOP has to offer is an alternative mode of Suck. Yes, they suck less, but they still suck. And they're not going to overturn Obama care - even if they wanted to (which is highly questionable), they won't have the veto-proof majorities to do it. So go ahead and just start disabusing yourselves of that fantasy right now - because it's just a fantasy.

The best thing conservatives and libertarians can do right now is loudly state their cases against bad policies by both the Democrats and the GOP. At this point, we're heading for the crash and there's no stopping it. The best we can do now is put ourselves in a good position to say "I told you so, now here are the solutions."

The bright side? The bigger the crash, the more momentum there will be to unroll socialism in America.

96 The "Won" boarding Air Force One on Fox. Is it me or does AF1 look like hell. Dull paint, unwashed. I remember in the past how the paint would shine.

Its hard to wash it when it is in use ALL the damn time.

97 Well, the GOP sucks less, sure. But consider that, aside from Katrina and the GWOT, GOP spending included unforced errors like W's medicade thing and his infrastructure bill. But, Jesus, those programs are pocket change to the god-king's spendthrift ways. The GOP lost it's way and tried to be nice and in doing so, betrayed its small government principles. But check it out, the DNC has no principles and no spending limits, no qualms and no boundaries. Instead of going along to get along, the GOP should just embrace the MSM's "mean" slur and go hardcore small government. We can't outspend the DNC because we have morals and principles.

Message #1:  This guy and his party are wrecking the economy - putting and keeping Americans out of work and bankrupting your kids;

Message #2: This guy has lied to everyone about everything he was going to do - you thought you were electing someone totally different from the man he really is;

It fits nicely together.  You elected him to change politics for the better, not take it even further in the wrong direction.

Meet the new boss - same as the old boss.

99 Anything clinton says should have to be repeated by him while hooked up to a lie detector machine...just to make sure he actually did learn his lesson about lying, with conviction, under oath, and right to the world's face, with wagging finger and all. I'm not conviced he's divested himself of that propensity just yet.
