Mitt Romney Says “Fundamental Dishonesty” Over Obamcare Is ‘Rotting it Away” and “Put in Peril” Obama’s Second Term (VIDEO)

Barack Obama, ‘The Lying King’: Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive …

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” over his signature health care program, Obamacare, has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.” Romney went on to say that Barack Obama intentionally mislead the American people on the core elements of Obamacare. Romney went on to say that time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.

“Perhaps the most important lesson the president, I think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the American people the truth. When he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period (VIDEO), he said that time and again, he wasn’t telling the truth. I think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”

“… but the key, I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. He could know it by looking at Massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. He could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn’t. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was NBC News that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that’s not some little number, that’s 6 million American people.”

NBC – Meet the Press:

Last year’s losing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” on the Affordable Care Act has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Romney said Obama’s handling of Obamacare’s promises “has undermined the foundation of his second term – I think it is rotting it away.”

He added that what “has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case….”

He said “had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket… there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed.”

Donald Trump Warns GOP at Family Leadership Summit in Iowa … Immigration Bill (Amnesty) “Could Be a Death Wish’ for Republican Party”

Does it really take Donald Trump to state the obvious for Republicans to get a clue? Obviously, it does. 

Donald Trump spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa on Saturday and warned the GOP of the dangers of passing immigration reform. The event was organized by The Family Leader, a Christian conservative organization. Donald Trump warned the GOP that the proposed immigration bill will be a “death wish” for the Republican Party. Trump went on to say that border security is a must. The Donald is correct. For anyone, especially Republicans, who thinks that the 11 to 15 million illegals in the United States are going to vote for the GOP, you are delusional. For any one who thinks at the illegals will be tax payers are delusional as well. We already have a bout 50% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes, what category do you think illegals will fall? Let alone the additional subsidies, welfare, food stamps and other entitlement programs. We cannot afford the current welfare state, how are we going to be able to afford the one with 11+ million more illegals and the rest that pour over the border that a government refuses to protect?

Donald Trump on Saturday made his first-ever political visit to Iowa, speaking to conservative Christians, stoking speculation about his political plans and labeling the United States a “laughingstock” during an interview with NBC News.

He warned the Family Leadership Summit in an evening speech that Republicans will have a “really tough” time in the 2016 presidential race if Hillary Clinton runs. He said the Senate’s immigration bill “could be a death wish” for the Republican Party but insisted the GOP has to do “the right thing.” And he bragged about buying the old Post Office building in Washington: “You have the White House, you have Congress and I’m building right in the middle!”

Hat Tip Video – The Gateway Pundit

“People come in illegal. You need border security. It all starts. Either you have a country or you don’t. It’s very simple. You either have a country or you don’t. And having a country starts with security at your borders … Now, when it comes to immigration you have to do the right thing. You have to. In your own heart you’re dealing with lives, you’re dealing with human beings. You have to do the right thing. But it’s gotta be done in a very smart and methodical method. The Republicans, let’s say, I hear 11 million illegals. Well, I hear the number could be much higher than that. If you do something where they get a vote just remember, and I think I was the first one to say it. I don’t know if you remember, I said this a long time ago when it first came up. Every one of those people, virtually, will be voting Democratic. Do what’s right but be careful. It could be a death wish for the Republican Party.”

Amnesty for illegals will not only be the death of the Republican party, it will be the death of the United States as we know it. Imagine this, we already have an unsustainable welfare states, now we are going to add another 11 million to it and make matters worse? The point of a responsible immigration policy is to let the right people in to sustain the country, not add 90% low income workers just because the entered our country illegally and broke our laws.

Imagine allowing 11 million new Democrat voters into America who become part of the “what can the government give me” class. How could the GOP ever win another election?

Don’t Mess With Texas… ‘Merry Christmas Bill’ Expected Soon to Become Law in Texas

It’s Christmas come early in Texas … ‘Merry Christmas Bill’ expected to become law in Texas soon.

It would appear that the following will no longer have to be asked by school children in Texas, “Daddy, why do we have a Christmas tree at home and a Holiday tree at school?”

Texas Governor Rick Perry is expected to sign legislation allowing public schools to celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays plainly and explicitly without fear of lawsuits. The proposed law, is called the “Merry Christmas Bill,” has already passed both the Texas House and Senate and now awaits the Perry’s signature. The bill allows “students and district staff” to declare such things such as “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” and even the soul-sucking “happy holidays.” Oh, the ACLU and anti-Christian organizations are going to lose their mind with this. How sad is it that we have to pass a law to prevent a school from doing this to exempt them from being sued? Is the “war on Christmas” over? Hardly, PC libs are sure to challenge it at the first chance. They will get some 7 year old to say they are being made to feel uncomfortable by being wished a Merry Christmas”.

The text of the bill specifically permits school districts to “educate students about the history of traditional winter celebrations.” More importantly and, somehow, controversially, the bill allows “students and district staff” to declare such things such as “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” and even the soul-sucking “happy holidays.”

The bill also unambiguously legalizes displays of the religious imagery associated with traditional winter celebrations including nativity scenes, Christmas trees and menorahs. The caveat is that all displays must include imagery from at least two religions or some additional secular symbol. (Messages encouraging adherence to a religion are verboten, too.)

US. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) Will Not Seek Reelection in 2014

Representative Michele Bauchmann announced on her web site this morning that she would not be seeking reelection in 2014 for the 6th District of Minnesota.  Bauchmann also ran for the GOP nomination for president in 2012. Bauchmann stated that just like the president who is limited to 8 years, so should she as a Congressman. Buachmann has been a staunch conservative voice in the House and it shall be missed. Personally, I am a believer that it should be mandatory that both the House and Senate should have term limits. Our Founders never intended for career politicians.

Bauchmann went on to say, “I promise you I have and I will continue to fight to protect innocent human life, traditional marriage, family values, religious liberty, and academic excellence.”

More from CNN:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann will not seek reelection next year. But, said the former presidential candidate, she has no plans to fade from public view.

“Looking forward, after the completion of my term, my future is full, it is limitless, and my passions for America will remain,” she announced in a video posted to her campaign website early Wednesday.

Bachmann, who served four terms representing Minnesota’s 6th District, promised that there “is no future option or opportunity” that she “won’t be giving serious consideration if it can help save and protect our great nation for future generations.”

And more from the Politico which is probably one of the liberal MSM outlets that Bauchmann was referring to regarding spinning the reason why she is leaving. Add the WAPO to the list as well.

“And rest assured, this decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign or my former presidential staff. It was clearly understood that compliance with all rules and regulations was an absolute necessity for my presidential campaign. And I have no reason to believe that that was not the case. …

”I fully anticipate the mainstream, liberal media to put a detrimental spin on my decision. … But I take being the focus of their attention of their disparagement as a true compliment of my public-service effectiveness. … To m my detractors, my work continues for YOUR best interest as well. … God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”

 

The Audacity of the Obama White House … … Jay Carney Blames Mitt Romney for Benghazi Scandal

WHO POLITICIZED BENGHAZI AND THE DEATH OF FOUR AMERICANS?

The Audacity of Hope Barack Obama. The Obama Administration and their minions are some of the most vile that 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has ever seen. After ABC News had exposed the Benghazi talking points had been edited 12 times to the point where they did not even reflect the truth as to what happened … during their damage control, the Obama spin machine and chief Obama mouthpiece Jay Carney tried to blame  it all on Mitt Romney. How pathetic are these people? Who politicized Benghazi and the death of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods? It was the Obama administration who as even MSNBC and CNN are reporting edited the talking points for political purposes during a reelection campaign. MSNBC is even going as far as discussing impeachment as a result of the Obama administrations actions. This administration lied and scrubbed the Benghazi talking points to get reelected and they have the gall to say others politicized Benghazi? Families, friend and Americans want answers to what happened and the Obama administration continues to misrepresent the truth.

But with President Obama, the buck always stops with some one else.

 

CNN’s Gloria Borger Acknowldges Benghazi Talking Points “Were Edited to the Point of Inaccuracy” … Chris Cuomo: “Safe to Say this Goes Beyond Partisan Picking”

Add another Left-leaning main stream media outlet to those that are questioning the Barack Obama administration and the edited Benghazi terror attack talking points.

First MSNBC and now CNN is coming out against the Obama administration for editing the Benghazi talking points, in the aftermath of the terror attack that left four Americans dead, to the point where the events that took place were untrue. In a CNN interview between Chris Cuomo and  Chief political analyst Gloria Borger, neither had anything good to say about the 12 edited versions of the Benghazi talking points using such words as “cover-up” and “whitewash”. Gloria Borger said, the Obama Administration’s Benghazi talking points were “edited to the point of inaccuracy” and the question is “was it a cover-up or whitewash”. She would later say that the talking points were so edited that by the end, they did not even resemble the truth. The most amazing comment may have come from Chris Cuomo when he stated, “it’s safe  to say that this goes beyond partisan picking.” Did the LEFT just hear that? One of your own is saying that the GOP is not acting in a partisan manner. CNN is basically saying that the Obama administration played partisan politics for his reelection bid when four Americans died. Are you kidding, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods were killed by terrorist and the Obama WH edited what occurred to the point it was a false narrative. We lost lives and needed to know what happened and Team Obama was more interested in talking points that fit his reelection. Cuomo called it unforgivable.

Maybe former Arkansas Governor Mike Hukabee was correct when he said during his radio show, President Obama “will not fill out his full term” because he was complicit in a “cover-up” surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

CNN Transcript:

GLORIA BORGER: What we see in this process is that these talking points were edited to the point of inaccuracy. The question is, is it a cover-up? Is it a whitewash? We don’t know the answer to that.

CHRIS CUOMO: I know. And you took my question. That’s exactly what I was going to ask you. Right? Because that’s what this gets to, 12. What’s the context? It sounds like a lot, but we have to know the nature and purpose of what those changes were.

GLORIA BORGER: So here’s the context. Over at the CIA they’re looking at some of these points, which include mention of Al Qaeda. And there’s a sense from some at the CIA, you know what, we don’t want to tip anybody that we’re investigating Al Qaeda on this, so let’s take out some of the references to Al Qaeda. What the CIA left in, apparently, was this sort of broader context of Al Qaeda in Benghazi in that part of the world. Those were eventually edited out. And there is an e-mail obtained by ABC news from someone at the State Department which asks, why should we leave that in because “it could be abused by members of Congress to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings.” So clearly from a State Department official asking the question, why are we going to give members of Congress information, don’t forget in an election year, which they could turn around and beat us up with. And that’s how you see in evolving. Everybody’s got a different reason for editing it. And they edit it down to something that’s totally, turns out to be in fact untrue.

Mitt Romney Will Regret this for the Rest of his Life … The RNC Benghazi Ad that Never Ran “Benghazi 3 AM Phone Call” (VIDEO)

ABC News has reveled the RNC Benghazi ad that never ran during the 2012 Presidential election. According to accounts, RNC leadership approved the ad but it was spiked at the last minute because of objections from the Romney campaign. Brilliant move. They thought that it would distract from their message on the economy. HUH? What, the Romney campaign could not walk and chew gum at the same time? As stated at the American Spectator, so what if it distracted from the economic message, “Are you trying to win an election or not?” Of course hindsight is 20/20, but how can a candidate seeking election not go after a sitting president for such a debacle? Being president means handling domestic and foreign policy, not just the economy. When a president gets economic policy wrong, people lose their jobs, money and their homes. When a president gets foreign policy wrong, people lose their lives.

Benghazi_3am_Ad

Watch VIDEO by clicking on above picture

It was the Benghazi attack ad the Republican National Committee created but never aired.

ABC News has obtained an ad the RNC made last fall and approved to air in the final weeks of the presidential campaign.  The ad begins with a replay of Hillary Clinton’s famous “3 a.m. phone call” commercial from the 2008 campaign and then cuts to video of the burning U.S. consulate in Benghazi Libya.

Over the images of the attack–in which four Americans were killed–words appear on the screen:

“The Call Came … On September 12, 2012.”  As the screen goes black, the words continue: “Security Requests Denied. Four Americans Dead. And an Administration whose story is still changing. The Call Came.”

Hot Air wonders whether this VIDEO will harm Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden in 2016?

How bad of a call was this by the Romney Team? The ad could be run today and still have meaning. That is how much of a screw up this was. What were these people thinking?

The Hypocrite in Chief … After Demonizing the Rich, President Obama only Pays Effective Tax Rate of 18.4% for 2012

THE LION LYING KING: There has been no greater hypocrite to ever grace the White House than President Barack Hussein Obama … The following is subtitles. Taxes for thee, not for me.

President Barack Obama is about class warfare, he is about dividing America and now he is about hypocrisy. During the 2012 Presidential campaign Obama railed on the 1%’ers and called all those rich people who paid less than their secretaries the evil rich. Obama harped on the so-called Buffett Rule, which would require millionaires to pay at least 30% of their income in taxes. Of course this came about because the evil rich were making most of their money from investments as opposed to income, that are taxed at a different rate. During the 2012 presidential election Obama played class warfare and went after his GOP opponent Mitt Romney who paid about 14% on his income. Obama made political hay lying to the American public and using the issue that ultra-rich Warren Buffett paid less in his tax rate than did his secretary.  However, in 2011 the hypocrite that resides in the White House also paid a lower effective tax rate than his secretary.

What, You thought the 30% tax for the rich was meant for me?

Guess what, Obama is even more of a hypocrite in 2012 than he was in 2011.

According the WSJ, President Barack Obama paid an effective tax rate of only 18.4%. Yup America, that’s it. For all his whining, for all his rhetoric, for all his class warfare and the rich should pay 30% … OBAMA ONLY PAID 18%. I guess this is more of the shared sacrifice that Obama talks about. Obama tells other rich folks that they are evil because they pay a low tax effective rate, yet he takes advantage of the same deductions and loop holes that everyone else does. If he was a true leader and really had the convictions of his beliefs, he would have told his accountants not to take the deductions and make it that his effective rate came to 30% for 2012. However, he did not do so because like every liberal, he wants others to pay the money, not themselves.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $112,214 in federal income taxes for 2012 on adjusted gross income of $608,611, an effective rate of 18.4%, the White House said.

The first family’s adjusted gross income—the amount after certain deductions and exemptions—was down from $789,674 the Obamas reported in 2011, when they paid total federal taxes of $162,074, an effective rate of 20.5%.

The decline was due primarily to falling royalties from sales of books Mr. Obama has written, according to tax returns released Friday. The president’s book-related earnings peaked in 2009 when he garnered about $5.6 million from two publications, “The Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams From My Father.” The royalties have fallen over time, to just under $274,000 in 2012.

The Obamas paid $29,450 in state income tax to Illinois for 2012.

Obama is truly a disgrace as President. Where is the MSM calling Obama out on his double standard hypocrisy? Personally, I do not believe in the “Buffett Rule”, but if one did and actually wanted to make it a law, one would think that they would lead by example. Not this president.
