It won’t make a difference..we can handle the truth

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. … These are people who pay no income tax. My job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

This part of his speech is all that was put out in print. The rest of Romney’s speech stated, he would have to go after the middle class to win the election. They are a large voting block and are being squeezed by Obama’s policies of tax and spend. Their incomes have been the most degraded, their jobs are disappearing, they are the ones most hurt by inflation (brought to you by the Federal Reserve), their incomes are slowly eroding and are at 1995 levels,  they’re the ones who have lost most as their property values have decreased by 50%. We’re grown-ups, we can handle the truth. Expect Obama to try and distract from his failures to make Romney the bad guy for telling the truth. A statement was released from the Romney campaign;

“Mitt Romney wants to help all Americans struggling in the Obama economy,” she said. “As the governor has made clear all year, he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people who are on food stamps, nearly one in six Americans in poverty, and the 23 million Americans who are struggling to find work. Mitt Romney’s plan creates 12 million new jobs in four years, grows the economy and moves Americans off of government dependency and into jobs.”

Since when is that a bad thing? How does it denigrate Americans by wanting them to have jobs and move off the subsidized lifestyle so many lead? More people working would be a good thing for all of us, including the government. Being productive, instead of getting government handouts, raises the quality of life for everyone, including the very poor and undereducated. It gives more opportunity to all Americans. That is the truth and we all know it.

Speaking of truth, UN Ambassador Susan Rice spent the weekend making the rounds of all the news shows to talk about “the film” that caused the massive riots in Africa and the ME.  Unfortunately for Obama her version, and his, along with the State Dept does not stand up to close scrutiny. But, it would make all of them look like incompetents if they dared to tell the American public the truth.  Another Obama and State Dept. failure to protect our Embassy will be swept under the rug. The wagons have circled to protect the guilty just like in the Fast and Furious debaucle. The Administration is more like a crime syndicate each and every day. The focus is not on governing but retaining and expanding executive power. Power they don’t deserve to have. From CBS

After the American media grabbed and held the pro-Obama headlines against Romney’s comments and took Obama’s “Romney shoots first and aims second” quote to iconic proportions, the rest of the world is reporting that the Obama administration knew about the planned-attack on the Benghazi, Libya Embassy where four Americans, including United States Ambassador Christopher Steven was murdered.

In truth, the current administration brought up “the film” to cover their incompetence, outed the filmmaker, and created the meme that caused further attacks on US and other Embassies. The biased media ignores the truth, but we should never.

      […]The president and I have two very different approaches to the future of America and what it takes to ignite our economy and put people back to work. The president believes in what I describe as a government centered society. Where government plays a larger and larger role and plays more and more of the needs of individuals. And, I happen to believe instead in a free enterprise, free individual society where people pursuing their dreams are able to employ one another, build enterprises, build the strongest economy in the world. I happen to believe that my approach is the approach that will put 23 million people back to work again.[…]

  4. scathing report from the GAO…..abject failure
    […]Taken together, the trustees’ and GAO reports remind us of one of Obama’s most significant domestic failing: his lack of will to address our entitlement programs that are central to a real reduction in our national debt. Yuval Levin of the Ethics and Public Policy Center writes: “It is just not true that nothing gets done in Washington. Lots gets done, and there is really only one kind of thing that we are truly failing to do: genuine fiscal reform, which means particularly entitlement reform. Our failure to do this is indeed leading us toward a huge crisis, but the usual liberal complaints about partisanship are more often used as a way of avoiding dealing with this coming crisis than as a way of confronting it.” Worse than that, Obama has vilified those Republicans who have stepped up to the plate with concrete reforms for Medicare (as well as Medicaid and Social Security), making any progress virtually impossible.[…]

    • and this…

      The U.N. “anti-blasphemy” resolution has been put to the vote by the OIC in the Human Rights Councils every year since 1999 and in the General Assembly every year since 2005. It has passed every year, but it receives a dwindling number of votes. Most Western democracies have voted against, seeing it correctly as a threat to free speech.

      Last December, the Obama Administration, during three days of closed negotiations at Foggy Bottom, brokered a compromise for the implementation that allowed the controversial measure to pass the U.N. General Assembly unanimously. The only country to voice concern was Poland, whose representative wondered—rightly—why the only example of interfaith dialogue mentioned in the resolution was located in Saudi Arabia.

  11. I came across the link to American Thinker showing the video of Ann Barnhard(?) from a couple of days ago. She is a very spirited strong woman. Her commentary was very good, and she has more cajones than any member of the current admin. The comments afterwards were very good.

    How Jimmy Carter’s GRANDSON helped spread Romney’s embarrassing fundraising video

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2205257/James-Carter-How-presidents-grandson-helped-spread-Mitt-Romneys-fundraising-video.html

    • What a jerk. Not surprised considering his lineage, but still a jerk.

    • srdem65

      I have to disagree with one thing; “embarrassing”. I was not insulted or offended by what MrRomney said in this wicked video. We’ve all said or wrote the same things ourselves.
      Of course MrObama has the Black vote, they’re voting their race..nothing else. They still hope that he will “do something” for them to make their lives not so miserable, even though they have suffered more under his Presidency than any other group.
      The millions who gave up and pretended to be disabled so that they could get some money to live aren’t proud of what they’ve done. We know that and we pity them.

      Most Americans want to work, they want to hold their heads up with pride. Holding a paycheck given for your efforts and labor doesn’t even compare to the depressing notion of food stamps and welfare.

  14. Last time Charlie Hebdo did this their offices were firebombed……the power play by Muslims to get the UN to curtail free speech using blasphemy laws is beyond the pale. Bowing to Shariah, which is exactly what we would be doing, goes against everything we believe. In all the ruckus from the Muslims, that one issue keeps coming up. Every Muslim cleric from the highest to the lowest are calling for the UN to institute blasphemy laws.

    • yep, a couple of minutes missing…..total ignorance on full display for everyone to see at Mother Jones.

      Thanks! 🙂
