The Great Deception Campaign
The greatest deception campaign in the history of the United States has begun, all for the sake of one's radical ideology. This is what it has been reduced to under President Obama. Do you want to cut spending for poor people? Higher taxes, more spending, record deficits and now the President has put eviscerated our military readiness and border patrol agents won't be working. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to cancer screens and vaccinations and, in New York 2,300 disadvantaged children could lose childcare. This will all happen because those evil Republicans aren't pandering to my request for sequester. I heard the President say today, and this was the last straw for me, that we're going to have to choose between cutting support for poor children and disabled children. That's not what this choice is about! The Administration tries to tell us that, if we dare to cut 85 billion dollars out of a 48 trillion dollar budget, mass suffering will happen and Republicans will pay the price at the polls. What is so confusing though is that Republicans have granted President Obama the power to make the cuts where he wants to make them as opposed to making across the board cuts, so why then, besides political reasons, would he be causing such a stir? It's politics, plain and simple.
If there was ever a story to upset the Occupy Wall Street crowd over the influence of money in politics, this would be it. The New York Times (of all places) reported over the weekend that the supposedly "independent" Organizing for America is offering quarterly direct access to the President for donors who are raising at least $500,000 for the organization. The organization just happens to support Obama's agenda. When questioned about the report, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney literally ran away from the podium directing reporter to contact the organization. So we have the self-proclaimed "most transparent administration in history" essentially offering direct access to the president, for those who donate to an organization which happens to support all of the presidents policies. Seems like something that would cause Democrat and mainstream media outrage, if it wasn't for the fact that it is Barack Obama.
Outrageous Statement of the Day: Biden
Crazy Uncle Joe was at it again yesterday. One has to wonder how out of touch he really has to be to make this statement: "[The American people are] no longer traumatized by what was a traumatizing event, the great collapse in 2008. They're no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. They're no longer, I think, worried about our -- our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores, but -- and I don't think there are any more -- there's no -- there's very little doubt in any circles out there about America's ability to be in position to lead the world in the 21st century." Maybe in Washington, they believe they have led a solid recovery. The rest of us here in America beg to differ. For more please click here.
Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich (born Newton Leroy McPherson ; June 17, 1943) is an American politician who served as the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. In 1995, Time magazine selected him as the Person of the Year for his role in leading the Republican Revolution in the House, ending 40 years of the Democratic Party being in the majority.

As a co-author of the 1994 Contract with America , Gingrich was in the forefront of the Republican Party's dramatic success in that... More >
