Honest, he really said that!
“This is the first White House EVER where you know every single person who visits the White House. …anybody who comes to visit the White House you know who it is.”
Well, that sure seems to be just a wee bit disingenuous considering Obama fought like hell against releasing the logs of visitors to the White House…
msnbc.msn.com–Obama blocks list of visitors to White House. Taking Bush’s position, administration denies msnbc.com request for logs
The Obama administration is fighting to block access to names of visitors to the White House, taking up the Bush administration argument that a president doesn’t have to reveal who comes calling to influence policy decisions.
Despite President Barack Obama’s pledge to introduce a new era of transparency to Washington, and despite two rulings by a federal judge that the records are public, the Secret Service has denied msnbc.com’s request for the names of all White House visitors from Jan. 20 to the present. It also denied a narrower request by the nonpartisan watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which sought logs of visits by executives of coal companies….read the rest here>>>
…and then, when the woefully INCOMPLETE logs were finally released (which happened to contain the name of infamous America hater George Soros) he claimed that visitors such as William “Bill” Ayers, was not THE Bill Ayers–you know the domestic terrorist and Barack Obama “co-worker” and neighbor.
That the visitor Malik Shabazz was not THE Malik Shabazz–you know the leader of the “New Black Panthers,” the group who had a couple of members standing outside a Philadelphia area polling place during last year’s presidential election intimidating anyone who didn’t have the right “creds” to go inside and vote. This is a FEDERAL OFFENSE by the way so what happened to these guys? Why, Obama’s Department of Justice dropped the charges!
“The Recovery Act that I just talked about-we put every dollar of spending in the Recovery Act on a website. You can go and look up, right now, every dollar that’s been spent in the Recovery Act. You know where it’s been spent, who got contracts, how it’s been spent. That’s all there! Plain as day, for everybody to see.”
Oh yes, that Recovery.gov website that Joe “Hey, what’s that website number again?” Biden (remember when Obama put Joe in charge of all those billions of stimulus pork because nobody messes with Plugs..er Joe?) knows all about which cost the American taxpayers 18 million dollars to overhaul?
Track every dollar spent over there at the 18 million dollar Recovery.gov says Barack Obama?
abcnews.go.com–Leading members of Congress from both parties are promising increased scrutiny of the Obama administration’s data on job creation, amid widespread errors in official stimulus data reported by the federal government. A raft of reports of questionable or downright faulty jobs numbers — including many uncovered by ABC News that show dozens of jobs created and millions of dollars spent in congressional districts that don’t exist — has cast a harsh spotlight on the jobs claims connected to the $787 billion stimulus package. (SNIP) House Appropriations Chairman David Obey is calling the inaccuracies on Recovery.gov, the $18 million Web site that’s tracking stimulus spending, “outrageous,” and called on the Obama administration to immediately fix problems that have come to light. “The administration owes itself, the Congress, and every American a commitment to work night and day to correct the ludicrous mistakes,” said Obey, D-Wis. “Credibility counts in government and stupid mistakes like this undermine it. We’ve got too many serious problems in this country to let that happen”….read the rest here>>>
washingtontimes.com–The government Web site that promised to show exactly where the $787 billion in stimulus spending was going to “create or save” jobs is allocating billions of tax dollars to hundreds of congressional districts that don’t exist. Researchers at the Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity found 440 “phantom districts” listed on Recovery.gov, consuming $6.4 billion and creating or saving nearly 30,000 jobs. Their findings are listed HERE. For example, Recovery.gov shows 12 districts, using up more than $2.7 billion, in Washington, D.C, which only has one congressional district. Recovery.gov also shows 2,893.9 jobs created with $194,537,372 in stimulus funding in New Hampshire’s 00 congressional district. But, there is no such thing. The site also shows $1,471,518 going to New Hampshire’s 6th congressional district, $1,033,809 to the 4th congressional district and $124,774 to the 27th congressional district. In fact, New Hampshire only has two congressional districts; inviting confusion about where the money listed for the 00, 4th, 6th and 27th districts is going….read the rest here>>>
washingtonexaminer.com–Recovery.gov, the Obama administration’s supposedly transparent attempt to let citizens know how every dollar of the $787 billion stimulus package was spent, is turning out to be a lot more comic fiction than fact. Not only have fake jobs been reported in phantom congressional districts, Steve Allen Adams of NewMexicoWatchdog.org discovered that some of the $27 million of federal money his state received also went to nonexistent zip codes: read the rest here>>>
Oh, this wasn’t a fluke. Look here and here and here and here. I could go on but I think we all get the point that something nefarious appears to be going on here with Obama’s “Recovery Act.” In addition his seriously annoying inability to tell the truth to the American people is really starting to open the eyes of millions of folks all around the country.
unionleader.com–President Obama comes to Nashua today to try to sell New Hampshire on his sudden, post-Scott Brown commitment to job creation, deficit reduction and spending restraint. He can speechify all he wants, but the people aren’t buying it, and for good reason. The President is plainly and obviously not telling the truth.
He said his health care reform would let us keep our current health care plans. It didn’t.
He said (at a stop in Dover a year and a half ago) that no one earning less than $250,000 a year would see “any” tax increase. He then raised cigarette taxes and pushed a new energy tax and a tax on health benefits, among others.
He said he would oppose pork spending. Then he looked the other way as pork projects reached record numbers.
He said he’d cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. The budget he released yesterday raises it to its highest level in history.
He promised to air health care negotiations on C-SPAN. Then, in the words of The Associated Press, “the White House made multibillion-dollar deals with hospitals and pharmaceutical companies in private.”
The President thinks his words can fool us, but his actions are louder, and they tell us one thing very clearly: His slick talk is just that — talk….
