State Of The Union? Precarious.

Obama’s Statist Of The Union Address

If you heard it, my condolences.  If you didn’t, my congratulations.  After two years of shackling American business and spending more cash than anyone in the history of the planet, our duplicitous Chief Executive last night attempted to pass himself off as a steadfast friend of Free Enterprise and determined foe of fiscal irresponsibility.  His face should have turned as red as his ideology.  Anthony Martin at Conservative Examiner offers an insightful critique:

[…]  While claiming that he supports budgetary restraint and a freeze on federal spending, he also called for ‘investment’ in America–a code term for increased spending of taxpayers’ money at a time when the country cannot afford it.

In terms of sheer logic, it only follows that if there is a spending freeze there can be no increased ‘investment’ of tax dollars in anything. And if there is such an ‘investment’ then there can be no spending freeze. It can only be one or the other, but not both.

Thus, Obama’s words, yet again, prove to be a contradiction, not to mention that inherent in the Obama persona is a blatant incongruence between the President’s actions and his words.

Everybody’s Got Something To Hide (Except Me & My Monkey)

Gibbsy’s jibe below is both insulting and disingenuous.  Rational people have, contrary to Beltway Bobby’s dismissive remark, long ago concluded that where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire.  Obama is hiding something.  The only question is what.

W.H.: ‘Birthers’ aren’t ‘rational’ (POLITICO 44)

[Press Secretary Robert] Gibbs snuck a jab at the so-called birthers who don’t believe Obama was born in Hawaii. “I think rational people have — have long ago, many when they first heard and saw the president, come to the conclusion of his citizenship,” he said.

Friend says Abercrombie told him, ‘There is no birth certificate!’ (American Thinker)

[…] When Evans spoke to Abercrombie on January 19, Abercrombie reportedly told him that he searched the relevant Hawaii hospitals using his powers as governor, and concluded, according to Evans, “There is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii, absolutely no proof at all that Obama was born in Hawaii.”

A New Twist in Obama Birth Certificate Mystery

[…]  Has the focus on the birth certificate taken our eye off the ball on questions pertaining to the source of his funding for Harvard (i.e., foreign aid, foreign student loan applications) and the passport on which he traveled to Pakistan in 1981?

    Good Morning Bob. How much more depressing can one President Be? I have to ask the question cause I feel like I woke up this morning with a Hang Over. Cheeeez, what a chump he is.

    I guess due to the bad education that the people have had in the past 30 years or so that they are ripe for a lying dictator, right? He is beyond duplicitous. Other countries are not as taken in by it.

    The world is looking for leadership and they have found that in America no one is home.

  3. our duplicitous Chief Executive last night attempted to pass himself off as a steadfast friend of Free Enterprise and determined foe of fiscal irresponsibility

    I noted an underlying assumption in one little snippet from last night’s speech. That underlying assumption is contrary to the underlying assumptions of our Constitution. See my post today.

  4. Contrary to the White House’s position, it is Constitutional to require that BHO prove his qualifications for office.

    William E. Williams calls the system of government that has evolved “legalized theft.” Every politician sitting in that chamber last night has been or will be complicit in the thievery to one degree or the other. Ole blue lips just happens to be the chief thief at the moment. Unless a whole new paradigm of government evolves, they will continue to do what they do best–spend, spend, spend. The Tea Party arrived too late, we have already gone off the cliff, and our chief executive can only urge us to keep stepping on the gas. I’m hunkering down, the worst is yet to come.

  6. Not bad for his second 2012 campaign speech.

    J.P.,………
    The Tea Party arrived just in time. (Cavalry).
    Otherwise, this country would have taken the route of ancient Rome.
    Obama has stated that we have to dig ourselves out of this hole.
    One doesn’t dig themselves out of a hole, one climbs out of the hole.
    The hole was created by the socialistic tendencies of the past administrations.
    Putting the country in financial jeopardy is not the way to maintain our position among the world powers that would seek to destroy US.
    Obama is not stupid, he has an agenda, and his agenda has got to be stopped.
    Obama is speaking to the drones, some of which cannot even name the Vice President of the United States, let alone the former speaker of the House, or the current one.
    The current administration sees us as a herd of sheep.
    That will be their downfall.
    Obama has stated in the past that words are just words.
    The agenda is the thing that we have to watch.

    One potential candidate for 2012 might be Herman Cain.
    He has been there done that.

  8. Your post title says it all, my friend

      Maybe even more precarious than we thought if the White House insider is correct:

      Evidence is growing that the White House is so sensitive about stories in the media concerning the issue of Presidential eligibility that reporters have been warned of dire consequences if they merely ask questions about the subject.

      A White House insider has reported that the subject is so highly sensitive that reporters must ‘tread softly’ and ‘be very careful’ if they dare delve into Obama’s background.

      There is also information that suggests mainstream media sources now have all of the facts about the issue but intend to go on the offensive in protecting Obama at all costs. In the insider’s own words:

      Can’t respond much at this time. Too busy with all of the chaos coming at us these days. May be out of work soon! Crazy stuff. Simply urge you to lay off the birther angle at this time. Strongly urge. To proceed is at your own peril. Please take warning seriously. This is not a small town cop shop situation here. Let someone else try and make name on this one.

      Don’t blame you as it was me who brought up subject last time. Since then heard repeated rumors/confirmations of attempted “purge” coming down the pike. WH/media going on the offensive bigtime on issue. Has already started as you probably know. Talking very specific, very confrontational, very scary stuff here. Don’t wish to drag you into that. Much bigger fish are circling this. They can survive what could be coming. Not sure about me. Let the big players handle this now. This thing will either break out big or disappear.

    Freezing spending at current levels is not adequate.
    Spending levels need to back to 2007, IMO, for a start.
    We’ll see what Paul Ryan can do.
