Hyp”O”Crites on Parade


Remember all of those “hopey”, “changey” promises and declarative statements from Obama over the past year?  Fa-ged-a-boud-it!

It has been, what, NINE days since the ascension inauguration and already the Hypocrisy is flowing like vodka martini’s in the White House….

#1 Sacrifice

What Obama says:  Obama told us WE will need to “sacrifice” to move the country forward.

What Obama does: $100 /serving wagyu steak and vodka martinis (Obama’s favorite) for him and his guests last night after the Theft Act of 2009 passed the House.  Sacrifice for thee, but not for me….What’s a few more hundreds of dollars after a $1 Trillion Socialist package passes?

#2 Global Warming

What Obama said on the campaign trail:   “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.   “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added..

What Obama does:  Cranks up the Oval Office thermostat so much that jackets are not required.   (wonder if the traditional respect for the Oval Office shown by wearing jacket and tie went out the same window Obama tried to enter this week?)  David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”  Heat for me, but not for thee.

#3 Transparency

What Obama said: Obama promised a new era of government openness as he took office last week, issuing a statement telling agencies “to adopt a presumption in favor of disclosure”

What Obama does: No response to requests for a list of securities the Treasury backed for $419 billion used in bank bailouts.   Also, NO transcripts from press briefings have been provided (these were always provided in the Bush admin in a timely manner, but Obama accused Bush of not being open….Ha!)

What Obama says: Spending will have to be cut and some government programs will go away

What Obama does: Spends over 300% more on his ascension inauguration ($150,000,000)than the previous president ($42 million) ….during an economic “crisis” as dubbed by him.  We can’t cut the expense in programs where millions worship The One, however.

#5 Supporting the Troops

What Obama claims: He claims he supports the troops, military families and their service

What Obama does: In the excitement of adoration of Dear Leader,Obama skips the military ball for Medal of Honor winners on inauguration night…. From Cleveland Leader, “It was the party without all of the celebrities that Obama skipped. The very people who he sought to have support him during his candidacy and campaign, who have fought to protect this country, were snubbed in favor of publicity and the opportunity to rub shoulders – yet again - with the out-of-touch Hollywood elite.

Unfortunately, this will not be the end of it….after all, he is a liberal Chicago Democrat.

  1. Rock throwing is fun, huh? But ya know, these kinds of comments never created a job or fed a hungry child. ;)
