I’m already hearing people claim Mr. Obama is a shoe-in for the 2012 election. They are saying he is unbeatable. With the elections so far away, why start this kind of talk?
The propaganda machine of the Third Reich knew the best way to convince people of your “truth,” is to say it loud and say it often. It doesn’t matter what the facts say. As Joseph Goebbels said, “Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.” The only thing that matters is that people believe Obama can’t be beat.
Why do people need to believe this? For starters, it is meant to discourage wishy-washy voters who would otherwise vote against Obama. Some will say, “What’s the use in voting? They’ve been telling us for two years now the man can’t lose.”
But there is another reason. It allows democrats to challenge a loss. After all, the experts have predicted a landslide victory for Obama. How could XYZ have won unless he cheated?
Another great thing about this tactic of the democrats is that it allows them to continue with other lies. When Obama loses re-election, democrats and neo-socialists will claim the people did not vote against their socialist programs. They will claim the people overwhelmingly voted for wealth redistribution, collectivization, socialist programs, and entitlements, but the republicans cheated… and who paid the price? The People!
Mark my words… you will hear all of this when Obama loses in 2012.
There has to be a better way of doing things. Where are all the “liberals” who are always worried about civil rights? Why do they never worry about civil rights when it’s a little six-year-old being accosted. Now, if she looked muslim or wore a hijab or burka, they would probably have something to say.
This has to be some of the most ridiculous rhetoric I’ve seen come from our government in decades. I can’t think of the last time I’ve heard such garbage.
Both sides have played the American people once again. It’s as if we’re supposed to say, “Ooh! Thank God our saviors in Congress reached a last second deal.” And we’re all supposed to fall at their feet, worshiping these nad-less, worthless people because they compromised and once more brought of from the brink of destruction! Just like Barack Hussein Obama did by virtue of his election.
Do they really think they are fooling anyone? Out of almost $4 TRILLION, they managed to save our nation by whacking $38.5 billion? And hell would have come to earth if they saved another $1.5 billion? Let’s just think about this for a second . . . $38.5 billion is roughly 1 per cent of the budget Obama submitted.
Do these people really expect us to believe $.99 out of every dollar they spend is spent well?
This all began because a gaggle of cowardly politicians did not want to risk losing seats in the last election. Democrats could have (and should have) passed this budget last year. The gutless Republicans have enabled them.
I hear next week Congress will order the mass murder of 120 million Americans. The talking points of both parties will be… “Hey, we spared you, right? You should be thanking us.”
At that point, Jim Moron…er…Moran, the Democrat from Virginia, will give a speech entitled, “Shut up and sit down or we’ll bury you too.”
