President Obama continues to function from a place of desperation when it comes to his plans for healthcare reform and used this past Sunday as another opportunity to plead his case. He appeared on a total of five Sunday morning news programs ranging from ABC to Univision. He skipped FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, which was a gargantuan mistake. Whether that move was an attempt to avoid tough questions or punishment for FOX’s not airing the President’s last speech in primetime is unknown, but it is certain that the administration is arrogant about ignoring FOX by releasing a statement that inferred that FOX would probably rather airing a dancing program instead. Obviously, primetime shows do not air in the morning so this kind of blatant snide attack on FOX only puts Obama in a less than flattering light. The media tour fell flat with no new information and a few tough questions left the President stammering. This President seems to think that the more he talks about healthcare, the more he will convince the people they need his plan. Unfortunately, his answers to some questions only revealed that he thinks the American people are too stupid to figure out what is best for them.
Here was an exchange on This Week with George Stephanopoulos:
STEPHANOPOULOS: But have your — have some of your allies made it easier for — handed your opponents some ammunition, like ACORN, for example…
OBAMA: Well, look, the — you know, I think that — are there folks in the Democratic camp or on the left who haven’t — haven’t always operated in ways that I’d appreciate? Absolutely.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Congress said they should cut off all funding for ACORN.
OBAMA: Is — is — is…
STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?
OBAMA: You know, it’s — frankly, it’s not really something I’ve followed closely. I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.
If this answer does not enrage the public and wake them up to the corruption within the adminstration, I do not know what will. The President invited ACORN to the table, even before he was sworn in, to help plan his agenda. He worked for ACORN. He knows damn well that they get federal money! And not following this scandal closely?! That could be true since he probably only watches NBC, but the reality is that the President is surrounded by people who are paid to know everything and keep him informed. He knows perfectly well what has been happening. He just wants to pretend that no one is watching FOX and stick his finger in their eye by not appearing on their network and pretending like their huge breaking story that will make history is not even a blip on the screen of news.
And here is Obama on taxes on the middle class:
So the President does not think increasing money on people is a tax increase. I love that George looked up the definition of tax increase and then the President rejects the definition. I guess he’ll be writing the next dictionary. And the lies continue…
