1.When then Senator Barack Obama voted NO on the debt ceiling raise under George W. Bush, he said he would vote no because:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills,” Obama said.
“Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next five years,” he said, adding,”Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
The Senate narrowly approved raising the limit along partisan lines, 52-48, with all Democrats opposed.
***Mind you, Race Baiting Sheila Jackson Lee has accuse those who do not want to raise the debt ceiling for Obama as, wait for it……being racists of course! I wonder, was Obama and Sheila RACISTS when they REFUSED to increase the debt ceiling under Bush?***
Right, black people can’t be racists…..LMAO…..(sarcasm off!)
2. Obama was for seeking Congress’ approval before going to war; now he is in a war with Libya and not only did he NOT get Congress’ approval but he felt compelled to ignore their requests for answers; you know, because he is Obama and he is the “Messiah”. (Excuse me while I vomit)
a. Of course, in 2007, then-Senator Obama spoke passionately about the need to go after the Bush administration for violating the War Powers Act — the very same thing he’s doing now. In fact, while speaking at DePaul University in October of 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama said the following:
“After Vietnam, Congress swore it would never again be duped into war, and even wrote a new law — the War Powers Act — to ensure it would not repeat its mistakes. But no law can force a Congress to stand up to the president. No law can make senators read the intelligence that showed the president was overstating the case for war. No law can give Congress a backbone if it refuses to stand up as the co-equal branch the Constitution made it.”
3. Obama was for getting out of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: But not before he sent 50,000 MORE Troops to Afghanistan AND he is spending $117 BILLION to Bush’s $47 BILLION in 2008
4. Obama has stated that our fiscisal downfall we are in right now were because of the two senseless wars we are in- wars not only that HE Has left us in, but increased our presence and money in Afghanistan; put us into a war in Libya and is approaching Yemen and Syria. Oh yes, and now Pakistan as well!
5. Obama was for closing GITMO before he was against it-see campaign trail 2008
6. Obama was for trying TERR ORISTS in the US before he was KIND OF against it- see 2008/2009/2010/2011
7. Obama was against mandatory heath care (Ellen DeGeneres Show 2008) when he was dogging Hilary Clinton for mandating it. He said, “If curing the health care issue were that simple, then we could cure homelessness by forcing everyone to buy a home.” Now he has mandatory health care in his Obamacare
8. Obama was for the middle class before he was against them:
a. Refusing to allow US companies to drill for oil thereby putting thousands of Americans back to work, however he GAVE George Soros’ oil company in Brazil $2 Billion of our dollars so that Brazil can drill for oil and then telling them we will buy their FOREIGN OIL!
b. Obama refusing to allow 1,000 middle class Americans the right to work for Boeing so that he can pay back his UNION THUGS 9. Obama and the Democrats want to increase taxes? How about you DEMOCRATS pay your taxes!
10. Hey Dems…….If, as Ghetto Race Baiting Sheila Jackson Lee says, voting NO to raising the debt ceiling under Obama is some how racist; then OBAMA and the BL ACK DEMOCRATS MUST be racists to the extreme when THEY ALL VOTED AGAINST raising the debt ceiling under George W. Bush!
