If Obama has studied Machiavelli, he surely has followed his philosophy: “The promise given was a necessity of the past. The word broken is a necessity of the present”
Of the 20 bills sent to him by the 112h Congress so far, Jim Harper, director of Information Policy Studies at Cato Institute, wrote June 28, Obama “has posted only eight online for five days.” The “poor numbers so far this year drive his overall tally down to exactly 50 percent compliance.” Of the overall total of 402 bills, 200 were posted for five days. The bills that “get sunlight lean toward the unimportant—post office renamings, Smithsonian appointments, and such…”
Here are a few examples of legislation that was signed but not posted:
P.L. 112-1, to provide for an additional extension of programs under the Small Business Act. Signed Jan. 31, 2009. Not posted.
P.L. 112-4. The further continuing Appropriations Amendments, signed March 2, 2011. Not posted.
P.L. 112-7. The Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2011. Signed March 30, 2011. Not posted.
P.L. 112-10. The Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act. 2011. Signed April 15, 2011. Not Posted.
P.L. 112-14. The Patriot Sunsets Extension Act of 2011. Signed May 26, 2011. Not posted.
Young voters who were entranced by Barack Obama’s “yes, we can” slogan in 2008 are saying “maybe not,” according to a poll that can’t cheer the White House. In a match up against a generic Republican challenger, Obama is losing by 37 to 34 among voters in the 18 to 34 age group. So said a Quinnipiac University poll released last summer.
Obama’s tendency to break promise as easily as a pie crust was born early in a pattern of falsehoods.
According to Snopes.com. the fact-checking source, Obama said “Selma got me born.” He was born in 1961. The Selma civil rights march was in 1965.
He said his father was a proud freedom fighter. In fact, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya ever has had.
Obama said he had never practiced Islam. But he practiced it daily at school where he was registered as a Muslim and kept the faith for many years.
He said an Ebony Magazine article prompted him to run for office. Ebony has yet to find the article he mentions in his book. He also said an article in Life Magazine changed his outlook on life. Life could not find the article he mentions in his book.
He identifies himself as a professor of law and a Constitutional lawyer. In fact, he was a senior lecturer on leave.
Obama said he once wrote a tough nuclear bill. But his bill was rejected by his own party “for its pandering and lack of regulation, mainly because your nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.” Axelrod now is Obama’s senior campaign re-election campaign manager.
“I am tough on terrorism,” Obama has said. He “missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism, and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of Israel.
So much for Obama transparency and truth.
