    1. Hidden beneath the pleasant campaign façade of Senator Obama was a ruthless willingness to replace “the audacity of hope” with “the audacity of raw, ruthless power.” He has brought the corrupt Chicago-stlye politics to the White House. A clever fellow, he hides duplicity behind secrecy, rhetoric, and legalisms. Interestingly, he and President Reagan share captivating, eloquent rhetorical skills, but that is where the similarity ends. For Reagan, clarity was his ally, and he used it to articulate the values of the American people. In contrast, Obama, the spokesman for the secular-socialist Left, knows that clarity is his enemy. This is why Obama’s most honest comments have been sans teleprompter, when he went “off message.”
    Gingrich, "To Save America," chapter three.

    "...Obama’s most honest comments..."


    2. Example: In January 2008, when Barack Obama was trying to put some distance between himself and other Democrats seeking the party's nomination, he touted his green policies. In particular, he talked about his intentions to put regulations in place that would shut down coal plants around the country. Speaking in San Francisco, candidate Obama said: "If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it's just that it will bankrupt them."
    Obama Makes Good on Promise to Bankrupt the Coal Industry

    a. Unscripted, and out of character for the candidate whose normal campaign rhetoric did not include promises to bankrupt an industry.

    b. ‘A record-high 57 generators will shut down in 2012, representing 9 gigawatts of electrical capacity, according to EIA. In 2015, nearly 10 gigawatts of capacity from 61 coal-fired generators will be retired….“The cost of compliance with anticipated and existing Federal environmental regulations such as the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) is a factor,” the EIA noted. “Particularly in the case of older, smaller units that are not used heavily, owners may conclude it is more cost efficient to retire plants rather than make additional investments.”’ Record number of coal-fired generators to shut down in 2012 | The Daily Caller



    3. Example: At a fundraiser in San Francisco, he inadvertently spoke his mind about small-town folks: “… they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
    Mayhill Fowler: Obama: No Surprise That Hard-Pressed Pennsylvanians Turn Bitter



    4. Example: Roanoke, Virginia saw Obama’s real view of Americans, and of business: “If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." "You didn't build that" and income redistribution

    a. "President Obama now has a television ad playing that attempts to calm the uproar. "Of course Americans build their own businesses," he states, looking directly into the camera. "Every day, hardworking people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them, as America always has."

    Well, that's not what he originally said, but it sounds good, sounds better than trying to stir up class resentments and votes by saying that freeloading bosses in America are riding around each day on the collective's roads and bridges and not paying their "fair share."

    There's no mention from the White House about how America's top income groups contribute a disproportionate amount in taxes to pay for all the roads, bridges, tunnels, Senate salaries, White House parties, green bankruptcies, missiles and bombs. "The rich" are far from getting a "free ride." "Ibid.


    Americans didn't know the real Obama in '08.....


    ....but do now.


    His dismissal from the people's house is more of a sure thing than 'fresh fried fox in a forest fire.'

    This is all good to know. It is certainly the truth. However, the worshipers of Obama will never admit to it, likely would not take the time to read it or to verify it. We still have a tremendous task ahead of us to make sure the election comes out as it should...with Romney on top. Obama's cronies will be doing all they can to stuff ballot boxes with multiple votes, dead people's votes, illegal alien votes and whatever else they can use to distort the true voting results enough that the shithead Obama wins again.

    And you didn't even mention how he works to circumvent Congress, ignoring the balance of power,

    I would comment along the lines of the opposite being true for you.....but I don't want you to misconstrue it as a reference to your parents.....

    Let's not forget the promise that will surly be made good on if this clown is handed a "mandate" with a second term.

    January 2008 while being interviewed by the SF Chronicle Obama said the following:
    "Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Obama told the Chronicle . "Coal-powered plants, you know, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers."

    (1) Text in bold red are the actual spoken words of our lord.
