Obama’s support for Egyptian President Morsi is repulsive.

After encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embracing Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sending $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government, it’s readily apparent that Obama has sacrificed both American and Israeli national security.  Morsi has been meeting with Iran’s genocidal President Ahmadinejad, has expressed his desire to “destroy the Jews and their supporters,” and now: “Mohammed Morsi described Jews as ‘descendants of apes and pigs’. The Muslim Brotherhood leader is also reported to have asked Egyptians to ‘nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred’.”  Isn’t it amazing that America is going into a downward spiral of debt slavery so that Obama can spend American taxpayer dollars to prop up Morsi’s destructive Egyptian regime?

This anti-Semitic dictator is VERY happy to spend your tax dollars, thanks to Obama:

Update:  Secretary of State John Kerry has announced that the United States is going to give an additional $250 million of American taxpayer dollars to Morsi’s repressive regime in Egypt.

Americans get poorer under Obama

“Americans saw their income drop so dramatically in January that it marked the deepest one-month decline in 20 years.”

Fiscal Cliff Deal: ANOTHER Obama disaster.

Obama lied during both presidential campaigns when he promised that “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.” The fiscal cliff deal raises taxes on 77.1% of U.S. households.

It turns out that Obama didn’t just lie– he actually coerced Congress into passing the 154-page fiscal cliff bill 3 MINUTES after receiving it on the fiscal cliff deadline of January 1, 2013 (since Obama failed to make any progress on the fiscal cliff negotiations and pushed the precarious economic situation out to the last minute).

The bill included gifts for Obama’s thoughtless supporters: Super-rich Hollywood got a tax break (despite record box office profits in 2012), as did NASCAR, algae growers, and rum producers (among others): at a cost of $100 billion in lost tax revenues for the U.S. government.

To add insult to injury (to the United States democratic process), “In a move that is rich in irony, President Obama agreed Tuesday night to sign an emergency deficit reduction bill that does almost nothing to rein in spending and then jetted out to Hawaii to resume his vacation at an extra cost of more than $3 million to taxpayers. The price tag is in addition to more than $4 million that is already being spent on the Obamas’ Hawaii idyll, bringing the total cost of the excursion to well over $7 million.” In an even more condescending move, Obama jetted off for his extended Hawaiian vacation without even bothering to sign the fiscal cliff bill that he pressured Congress to pass at the last minute.

After this entire mess, was the problem solved? NO. “President Barack Obama scheduled another so-called “fiscal cliff” crisis for February by announcing late Jan. 1 he would refuse to negotiate any curbs on his use of the nation’s maxed-out credit card.” So get ready for February 2013!

Update: Obama supporters are ‘shocked’ and ‘angry’ that Obama raised their taxes.

Another Update: Obama mainly harmed low-income Americans by increasing payroll taxes in January 2013– “When asked how their financial situation had changed in January, 32 percent of people with incomes below $75,000 said their pay had dropped, compared with 13 percent who said it had increased. By contrast, 38 percent of people earning more than $75,000 said their wages had gone up last month, and 23 percent said they had gone down. “Mostly it was the payroll tax hurting the lower incomes, while higher-income folks had a boost from things like dividends.””

Obama puts on quite a show

Obama’s second inauguration misrepresented the effect of his policies and gave his ego a false boost.  He ignored millions of unemployed Americansthousands of American troops in harm’s way because Obama had no military or foreign policy experience… military heroes who feel betrayed by Obama… skyrocketing healthcare costs for American families under Obamacare… $50,521 owed by each American household after Obama’s out-of-control government spending… the most extreme divisiveness and partisanship in America since the Civil War… abandoned Hurricane Sandy victimsdead American diplomats in Libya and dead American hostages in Algeria… and the list goes on.  In their place, Obama put 8 ‘citizen representatives’ on stage to speak about how their lives were “improved” under Obama’s first term.

Who were these ‘citizen representatives’?

  1. “Ida Edwards of Petersburg, Va,” a civil rights advocate– but Obama is openly racist, and actually invited a racist preacher to give the benediction during his inauguration.
  2. “Erica Chain of San Francisco,” who spoke about receiving medical care for a pre-existing condition under Obamacare– but less than one month afterward, we have a newsflash: “Tens of thousands of Americans who cannot get health insurance because of preexisting medical problems will be blocked from a program designed to help them because funding is running low.”
  3. “Lily Griego of Denver,” who said she was able to attend college because of government funding– of course, her household now owes $50,521 to the government thanks to Obama.
  4. “Kenyetta Jones of Toledo, Ohio,” who kept her job because of an auto bailout– which cost taxpayers billions of dollars.
  5. “Liz McCartney of New Orleans,” who helped rebuild after Hurricane Katrina– yet, Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy was worse than Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
  6. “Rob Hach of Alta, Iowa,” who started a green energy business– Obama spent billions of taxpayer dollars on “green” companies that he believed would support him politically, and the result was the Solyndra scandal and multiple bankruptcies.
  7. “David Hall of Washington,” who is pro-gay rights– while Obama is both pro-gay rights AND anti-gay rights, as a political convenience.
  8. “Petty Officer 2nd Class Taylor Morris of Joint Base Charleston, S.C.,” who served in Afghanistan– where it’s now so dangerous and unstable that Obama’s afraid to visit.

Obama’s inaugural speech was equally a joke:

“For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay.” — Obama [Obamarageous: … except for Obama’s luxurious vacations and extended absences.]

“We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate…” — Obama [Obamarageous: … except that Obama can call Republicans “Tea-Baggers” who are “pointing a gun at the head of the American people,” and Mitt Romney can be called a “bullshitter.”]

Obama called it “our generation’s task” to make the values of “life and liberty” real for every American. [Obamarageous: … except for ordinary Americans going through airports, and Republicans.]

Calling it the current generation’s task to carry on the quest for equality, Mr. Obama urged the nation to make sure that women were paid equally to men and that gay men and lesbians were treated equally under the law…  [Obamarageous: … but of course, Obama is allowed to pay women less than men in the White House, and Obama opposes gay marriage.]

“Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm,” he said.” — Obama [Obamarageous: … when Obama says “all our children,” he means that quite literally– he’s not talking about American children in general, just his own children.]

And to top it all off, it was a fake inauguration. As usual with Obama, it’s all about show.

Obama orders a pay raise for VP Joe Biden, Congress, and federal employees– DURING fiscal cliff negotiations

As the country teetered on the edge of the fiscal cliff (caused by excess government spending), Obama issued an executive order to raise the salaries of VP Joe Biden (to $231,900/year), Congress (to $174,900/year), and federal employees in general (~0.5% pay raise).  And what will these government pay raises cost American taxpayers? $11 billion.

Obama wants the government to replace private charity

The Obama Administration wants to limit tax deductions for charitable contributions made by “high-income” Americans— a move which would be “devastating” for private charitable organizations and great for making more Americans dependent on big government!

Obama is ready and willing to go over the fiscal cliff!

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geither says the Obama administration is “absolutely” ready to go over the fiscal cliff (causing $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax increases), if the Republican House of Representatives refuses to do Obama’s bidding and raise taxes on Americans with incomes in the top 2%. Obama believes he has absolute power, and that it’s irrelevant that the American people elected a Republican House of Representatives– he’s made it very clear that he’s willing to sacrifice the prosperity of the American people in order to get his way.

Update: It turns out that 75% of Obama’s proposed tax hikes– which the Republican House of Representatives oppose due to the flailing economy– go toward NEW government spending!

Michelle Obama plans to “party hard.”

Michelle Obama announces that “On Nov. 7 we’re going to party hard.” With your tax dollars.

VP Joe Biden says: The Middle Class has been BURIED under Obama.

Vice President Joe Biden acknowledges the obvious: “How they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that’s been buried in the last four years?” Yes, the middle class HAS been buried under Obama’s policies for the past 4 years.

Obama PROMISES that Obamacare is not a tax… Supreme Court DISAGREES

Chief Justice John Roberts upholds the constitutionality of Obamacare SOLELY on the ground that it is a tax.
