What President Does What He/She Says?

Apparently President Obama is just like any other politician; not surprising.

Quote from Fox News:
"The House last week passed the measure that would keep the government running through Sept. 30, when the federal budget year ends. Taxpayers for Common Sense, a watchdog group, identified almost 8,600 specially sponsored projects totaling $7.7 billion; Democrats say the number is $3.8 billion."

The Democrats admitted to having $3.8 billion dollars in earmarks in this bill. If the President signs this, he is a perjurer to the public because he rails against earmarks constantly. How can anyone think it is necessary to WASTE $3.8 billion dollars in this economic state just to pass a bill?

Quote from Fox News:
"'We want to make sure that earmarks are reduced and they're also transparent. We're going to work with the Congress on a set of reforms to achieve those,' said Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget."

The President didn't say reduced, he said NONE. I want to see NO earmarks in bills that are passed from now and moving forward. The people of this country should be holding these politicians accountable for their idiocies. If someone goes against what they say, they should be voted out unanimously and whatever people vote for them after they do something completely opposite of what they say should leave this country now.

  1. Campaign rhetoric is just that ---promises made on the trail that sound good and make everyone have an emotional response. Then in office, just do what you want and offer double speak and word parsing to justify the lie. The American electorate is stupid because they will be duped again at the next election.

    As long as people are lead purely by emotion and do not critically think an issue through, we will have SHEEPLE!
