Calling someone a liar is a strong statement. However, when it comes to Obama, he provides the clear and convincing evidence himself. Virtually everyone is aware of the interview he gave to Bill O’ Reilly of Fox News prior to the Super Bowl. It’s the most talked about interview in a long, long time. You can be sure that both parties knew this coming in and both had an agenda. O’ Reilly is the king of evening opinion news so he wasn’t going to do anything to jeopardize that by calling out the President and cornering him with tough questions. He said as much as on his show Monday evening when discussing his target audience in that time slot prior to such a big event as the Super Bowl. No surprises here.
There were also no surprises from the Obama side. His handlers no doubt spent extra time in prepping him for the interview and ensuring that he answered the questions with the new 2012 re-election talking points. Primarily that is to say that he wishes to visibly appear to be more centrist. This is where he’s caught lying. He said “no” when O’Reilly asked him if he supported redistribution of wealth. I won’t waste my time linking to his interview as you can find it everywhere. What I will link to are the various times in which Obama has made it clear he no doubt supports socialism and redistribution of wealth. He still can’t admit to it because it’s politically toxic. One would think he would get much more respect if he simply came clean like Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont who openly admits to being a socialist. Then he wouldn’t have to keep up this charade of tap-dancing around questions about his true intentions, but the pollsters tell him he simply can’t go there if he wants to get the vote of the people who will have to cough up the money to redistribute.
Ok, on to the evidence. Actually, we can start with yesterday when he appeared in front of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. He stated that in exchange for lower tax rates, corporations have to share those profits with the workers. Who wouldn’t want that? That’s why workers are in the game, to make more money. Just as the corporate board has a fiduciary responsibility to its shareholders to maximize profits in return for their investment. The problem comes in when government dictates what any company or corporation or even industry MUST do with its revenue. That is socialism.
Watch the entire video of his speech if you wish, or simply go to about the 25:30 mark to hear these specific comments regarding profits.
Of course, there is the most famous of all when Obama ran into Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail. Go to about the 4:40 mark for his infamous quote.
Still not convinced? Let’s go back even farther. Back to when Obama was just a State Senator from Illinois. He did an interview in 2001 with Chicago public radio. He again specifically states “redistributive change”. Listen for yourself.
Then there was the debate with Hillary Clinton when discussing capital gains taxes, he was considering raising it out of a “purposes of fairness”.
Are you unhappy with the high energy costs we have today? Not your President. He wants them. He wants cap-and-trade. He wants everything “green”. He wants to force industry to raise rates to force us to change our lifestyle so we convert to his agenda. Watch and see.
The point of all this is to illustrate that the one thing Obama said during the O’Reilly interview that was true was when he said he was still the same old guy. Absolutely true. He hasn’t changed at all. And you can watch and listen to his words proving it. It’s only today that he lies about what he is so he can get re-elected. The fact is that he is a socialist. Remember, socialist is not a dirty word. It’s simply an economic model that a government pursues. It always fails, but nonetheless it is simply a strategy that Obama believes in. Wealth redistribution is a key component of socialism. We are now in for a 21 month blitz of bait-and-switch. Obama cannot allow himself to be characterized as a socialist despite being one and his own words prove it.
Those that know me or have read this blog know I don’t chase blog traffic. But I believe getting the word out about the true intentions of Obama is vital. Particularly the audio clip from Chicago radio that many haven’t heard. Link to it or simply go to YouTube and get it yourself and post it. Do whatever you can to make sure we offset what Obama will attempt prior to 2012, and that is to deny the proven fact that he is a socialist and does indeed support wealth redistribution. He’s a liar pure and simple.
