Obama Hypocrisy … Barack Obama was Against/For Earmarks Before he was Against Them
OBAMA WAS FOR PORK BEFORE HE WAS AGAINST IT …
Face it America … you were duped by just another “TYPICAL” politician. Obama’s nicely wrapped, teleprompter message was bought be many hook, line and sinker. Anyone ready yet for a do over?
Porkulus Rides Again
Obama signs “imperfect spending bill”. Maybe America has elected an imperfect President. Obama claimed during the campaign he was against pork and railed on GWB and his out of control spending yet all Obama has done is spend, spend spend. Obama ran and preached to the American public that he was a Washington DC outsider against special interests, lobbyist influence, and pork-barrel spending. Obama said he was going to bring CHANGE to Washington. As Hot Air points out, Obama will deal with change another day … sure he will.
Was this the change that America signed on for? Barack Obama signs $410 billion spending bill filled with earmarks and then criticizes earmarks in the same breath. The ever present, Obama water carrying NY Times made the following excuses for Obama and his signing of the bill.
Did we mention that Obama signed the bill under the cloak of darkness will hiding under his desk in private away from the cameras. There is conviction to campaign promises and leadership you can believe in.
President Obama on Wednesday signed an “imperfect” spending bill packed with special projects in order to keep government running, but he vowed that it will be the last one and proposed ways to curb lawmakers from abusing the process in the future.
Mr. Obama, trying to regain the high ground after withering criticism that he was betraying campaign promises by signing the $410 billion package, said that from now on he would seek to eliminate projects with “no legitimate public purpose.” He proposed that all projects be open to scrutiny at public hearings and those aimed at for-profit firms be subject to competitive bidding.
Stop the ACLU asks if Obama ever feel shame-faced at his bold-faced lies?
Reform Lite: Obama goes soft on pork … Pass the bacon.
“Rather than trying to fine tune a fundamentally flawed process, we should take aggressive steps to prevent unauthorized earmarks,” said Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.), a leading anti-earmark critic on the Hill.
Feingold’s GOP partner – and Obama’s former presidential rival – went further.
“The president’s rhetoric is impressive, but his statement affirms we will continue to do business as usual in Washington,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who has led the fight against earmarks. “The President could have resolved this issue in one statement – no more unauthorized pork barrel projects – and pledged to use his veto pen to stop them. This is an opportunity missed.”

did any of us doubt that obuma would lie, cheat, and steal to get his way ? after all he is somewhat of a politician and less of a president.
obuma be makin a lot o bacon in da white house.
i believe he said there would be no expansion of government, no pork barrel spending, and a transparent presidency.
the American citizens have yet to see any truth to these blatant lies. “mr. president, why are you hiding under the desk in the dark”? ” uh, present”!
obongo the porkoholic “Let them eat PORK” How can you tell if obongo is lieing: His lips are flapping.
obongo: pork the other white meat
Brother Obambi will go down as THE most despised President in history.
What really ticks me off is all the liberals that kept railing on Bush about his pork barrel spending. Obama has more pork barrel spending in his first 50 days than Bush did in 8 years. So much for Bush being the worst President in history, Obama has surpassed that already. This will be a very long 4 years.
obama appointee for chief tech officer, vivek kundra’s office raided by the FBI under an ongoing investigation. does this boy know anyone other than criminals ?
what’s this #8 or 10 criminal appointees now for obie boy ?
#5 You judge a person by the company they keep. Now, you know that Mr. Obama did not know these people were dirty. He does not associate with those kind of people.
Wow! Sure are a lot of dirty people in politics these days. They should investigate the whole administration, the house, the senate, all of them.
Since NUTHIN’, in fact nuthin’ at all is working

other than himself and his personal idealism?
Somebody has to take this young man out behind
the barn for some learnin’. After all, this dude is
Starry-eyed one, take your hands out of our till!
Michelle, if they do that. the US is going to have a problem.
no more ppl in the whole administration, the house, the senate,left
#8 We already have a problem. It’s clear that we need to make some changes and get rid of the greedy, tax-cheating, money hungry, crooks and replace them with honest, ethical & moral people or this country will continue to decline.
Those can be found.
But likely after 1 or 2 years, they are corrupted as well
#10 Yes it does. There are too many crooks ruining this country.
#11- Michelle, you are so right……
Speaking of more crooks…….this just in…..& THE CHOSEN ONE just elected Kundra on March 5th….Looks like his new job may be in jeapordy now, too and he’s on a leave of abscence already. LOL
