President Obama told Bill O'Reilly several outright lies during an interview yesterday.
This obviously does not surprise any of us who do not solely rely on the MSM to get our news.
The only truth Obama uttered was that he "is the same guy" as he always was. Of course, this truth was uttered in the spirit of decieving the American public, but nevertheless, it was an undeniable truth. We know better that he did not shift to the center, nor was he ever a centrist (whatever that means). Obama is the same old socialist with Marxist dreams - the dreams of his father as we have gleened from his book with the same title.
Obama said that he was now focused on "how do we out-innovate, out-educate, out-build, out-compete the rest of the world". It sounds kind of disingenuous coming from a guy who does not believe in American exceptionalism!
The President also "absolutely" denied the charge that he was a dedicated progressive who is committed to income redistribution. He said: "I didn't raise taxes once, I lowered taxes over the last two years." Once again, we cannot help but be stunned by such outright lies. It is true that the federal income taxes have not gone back up (no thanks to any of the progressives in the Congress or the President), but there have been a myriad of new taxes, many of them resulting from Obamacare. Texas Congressman John Carter's web site is a good source for taxes that await us.
The President also said that he believed Obamacare would eventually be found constitutional and that it would save people money. You know, kind of like pretending that cutting half a trillion from Medicare when the system is faced with an incoming avelanche of seniors will actually save the program (without rationing services or cutting doctor payments).
Obama also added that wanting everyone to have health insurance is not being a socialist. Oh yes it is, Mr. President, if the cost is bourne by the taxpayers and not individuals.
Finally, he added "The longer I'm in this job, the more I enjoy it, the more optimistic I am about the American people, the more optimistic I am about this country" I wish we could say the same, Mr. President.
