Are You Serious, Barack Obama Lectures on Budgeting, Obama Says … You Can Afford Obamacare If You Cut Out Cable & Cell Phones from Your Lives

El Ling Mentira: Hmm, I thought Obama’s ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ was supposed to be affordable? Or as they say south of the border … asequible.

It would appear that even the Hispanics have problems with Obamacare. At a town hall-style meeting with the Spanish-language media, President Barack Obama had the audacity to actually arrogantly lecture others on budgeting properly in order to pay for his signature piece of legislation. What the hell would Obama know about budgeting? This from the president who has increased our federal debt more than any other one in history. When a consumer complained in a letter that he could not find affordable rates under Obamacare, Obama said smugly that maybe he has not prioritized health care.UNREAL!!!

“If you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill, other things they are spending on. It may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.”

The difference is Mr. President that it is their choice to own cable or a cell phone, not a federally mandated law to purchase a product or be be hit with a punitive tax for a service that one does not even purchase. As all can see from this Spanish-language town hall, even Hispanics loath Obamacare. Hint, hint GOP!!!

President Obama says Choose Between Cable, Phone or Health Care.

Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:

“If the President actually believes that a family earning less than $40,000 per year can afford nearly $4,000 in health insurance premiums, then he truly does not understand middle-income families. Americans do not need the President to tell them how to Budget their households. People are already cutting back on things like cable television and cell phones, just to compensate for an awful economy.This President promised he would deliver on affordable health care. Instead, premiums are up, out-of-pocket expenses are up, and overall cost of living is up. The President simply doesn’t get it. And his condescending attitude adds insult to injury.”

The Gateway Pundit reminds us of more of Obama’s lies to the American people regarding the cost of Obamacare. In the video below, Obama says that the cost of Obamacare will cost less than a cell phone. Now he tells people they have to prioritize and give up their cell phone to pay for Obamacare. What a joke. How would that political slogan have played prior to the 2012 presidential campaign … You can have Obamacare or your smart phone, not both … YOU DECIDE!

This man truly is ‘El Ling Mentira’.

Arkansas Senate Rce: Incumbent US Sen. Mark Pryor (D) in Trouble in Polls, Trails GOP Challanger Tom Cotton, 46% – 42%

BARACK OBAMA AND OBAMACARE CAUSING DEMOCRATS TO BE IN TROUBLE IN SENATE RACE IN ARKANSAS …

Define irony? Barack Obama needs to hold a Democrat Senate and gain the House in the 2014 to further Obamacare and to finish the devastation that his administration and policies have brought upon America. However, his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, that may cost Democrats the Senate and lose more seats in the House. According to a recent poll, incumbent US Sen. Democrat Mark Pryor is in real trouble against his Republican challenger, Tom Cotton. The poll currently shows that Cotton leads Pryor, 46% to 42%. Obamacare is weighting down Democrats with an upset electorate.

Tom Cotton –  U.S. House of Representatives from Arkansas’s 4th district

A recent poll shows U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Dardanelle, gaining ground in his bid to unseat Democrat U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor. The poll results also show the Arkansas’ governors race to be tied up, and U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Little Rock, with an advantage in the race for lieutenant governor

In the U.S. Senate race, Cotton had 46% support from poll respondents and Pryor had 42%. This is a favorable shift for Cotton compared to an Oct. 24 Impact Management poll that had Cotton at 43% and Pryor at 41%.

The poll further shows that Barack Obama’s Obamacare is sinking Democrats chances in Arkansas to retain the Senate seat. Check out the Independents against Obamacare.

Following are two questions and results related to Obamacare and Arkansas’ private option plan.
Q: Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Obamacare?
27%: Favorable
63%: Unfavorable
10%: Don’t know

On this question, 58% of Democrats were favorable and 26% were unfavorable. On the Republican side, 95% were unfavorable and only 2% were favorable. Among Independents, 74% were unfavorable and 14% were favorable.

The Arkansas Blog - Polling in statewide races: Edge to Republicans.

The race for Governor is a dead heat; however, in a midterm election if Republican voters are energized in their vote against Obamacare, that will tilt the balance in favor of the GOP candidate from its current tie, Democrat Mike Ross, 42, Republican Asa Hutchinson, 42.

Look for an upcoming post that will handicap the upcoming US Senate races for 2014.

VP Joe Biden Tells Democrats, Be Optimistic on State of the Nation ‘In Spite of Who’s President’ … “The American People Are With Us”… Really, The American People Are Against Obama!

HE SAID WHAT? … Did Vice President Joe Biden just diss Barack Obama and then say Americans Agree with Democrats?

Joe Biden told fellow Democrats at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Cambridge, MD that they should be optimistic about the state of the nation, “in spite of who’s president.” Hmm, kind of an interesting word choice when the current president is Barack Obama, a Democrat. This was Biden’s best effort to rally the beleaguered Democrat troops who face a tough uphill climb in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections thanks to the policies, agenda and signature piece of legislation from who is president.

“It always surprises me when we don’t have the degree of optimism that we should about the state of the nation,” Biden said. “And in spite of who’s president, in spite of who’s in the Congress, the American people are so much stronger, so much more resilient, so much more capable, that even the ridiculous policies of our friends on the right cannot keep them from moving forward.”

Baghdad Bob  a delusional Joe Biden went on to say, “I can’t imagine our prospects being viewed by the press and everyone else as being a whole hell of a lot brighter by the time we turn in September then now. The American people are where we are. Let’s go out and make every single effort not just to defend, but to aggressively push, aggressively push our agenda.”

Isn’t it interesting that Biden would reference the MSM viewing the Democrats prospects first and then calling “We the People,” the Americans who are adversely affected by Barack Obama’s and Democrat’s policies as … “everyone else”.  Not like we do not know that the liberal MSM is in the tank for Obama and has been since the beginning. The media has been AWOL on vetting Obama, holding his feet to the fire, questioning his failed economic and domestic policies and investigating the all too-numerous scandals like IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate, “Fast & Furious” and NSA-gate. It would appear that Biden and Obama believe that the MSM will continue to be their own personal Gunga Din heading into the 2014 midterms.

Biden_court jester

But it does not stop there when it came to Biden’s head in the sand comments. Anvil Joe made the preposterous comment to Democrats that, “The American people are where we are.” Really, in what sense, in the United States? The American people are in no way any where near where Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their lock-step, rubber stamp Democrats have lead this country. In fact, they more the American people learn the truth of the lies that have been told to them and adversely affected by Democrat foreign and domestic policy, the more they are not with Democrats.

A question to Joe Biden, exactly what are the people with you on? The fact of the matter is that the American people are not with Democrats and it is scaring them silly that they may lose even more House seats in 2014 and talk of losing the Senate to the GOP is a real possibility. Vulnerable Democrat candidates are running from Obama, his agenda and their vote. Obama is also acting as Emperor in arbitrarily extending Obamacare deadlines so to protect Democrat politicians, not to help the American people or America.

Geraldo Rivera Attacks Bill O’Reilly Over Racist & Disrespectful Barack Obama Interview … “What You Did Was Strip Him of His Majesty”

How much longer is FOX News going to keep Geraldo Rivera on the payroll … he has become pretty much more of a joke than ever before …

On Friday night Geraldo Rivera and Bill O’Reilly went at it on The Factor over the notion that the “Fidel Castro”looking Geraldo accused O’Reilly of taking part in racist, demeaning and disrespectful interview of President Barack Obama in their pre-Super Bowl interview. Geraldo was more concerned that O’Reilly so-called stripped Obama “of his majesty.”  HIS WHAT, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This is what liberals think, that Barack Obama should have majesty. UNREAL. Obama is not a King, as much as he thinks he is. We found a Revolutionary War and a War for Independence in this country against the British Crown to get away from central leaders who thought they had majesty.

“What we had here with you and President Obama was a culture class… It was the president of most of the white guys of America, that’s you. And, Barack Obama the president of almost everybody else. And the discussion was at that level… To watch it was some ways unsettling to me … What you did was strip him of his majesty.”

Clueless and misinformed individuals like Geraldo are more concerned with Obama’s majesty than they are about a government of, by and for the people. This is exactly what is so totally wrong with our country today. Barack Obama works for us, “We the People,” and they are supposed to be responsible and accountable to us. It is the media’s job to question those in power, no matter what party is in office. However, Geraldo and fools of his ilk are more concerned that we coddle to Obama and any president who is destroying America.

Geraldo Rivera was so out to lunch in this argument. The fact that all Geraldo go out of this interview was that O’Reilly called Obama a “community organizer” just shows the ridiculousness of liberals today looking for anything to attack those who would dare question Obama and any of his failed policies. Geraldo said during the segment that I don’t want to bring up race, which is code for, I am going to bring up race and use the race card. Personally, I could care less if one is black, brown, white, pink orange or blue … if Americans want their government to work for them and not be a Monarchy, then every single politician better be held accountable and have to answer OUR questions no matter how UNCOMFORTABLE they might feel.

VP Biden Uses MLK Day Address to Race Bait … ‘Our Opponents Know the Single Most Dangerous Thing to Give Us Is the Right to Vote’

Remember what I said about those using Martin Luther King Jr’s message to pander and use to their own self-serving agendas …

Enter Vice President Joe Biden using Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a vehicle to attack voter ID laws and comparing them to poll taxes and literacy tests. Because God forbid we taking voting more serious and want to know that fraud is not being committed more than using photo ID to buy alcohol, cash a check, enter your work place or get on a plane.  Biden went on to tell the Al Sharpton crowd, need we say more, “This has been the ultimate fight because our opponents know the single most dangerous thing to give us is the right to vote. ” Hmm, speaking of literacy, does crazy Joe realize that we all do have the right to vote?

Biden-phone

I need what operator, a valid form of ID to get into the event,  OK.

Vice President Joe Biden used Martin Luther King Jr. Day to launch an all-out attack on voter ID laws, which he implied were similar to poll taxes and literacy tests.

“This has been the ultimate fight because our opponents know the single most dangerous thing to give us is the right to vote,” Biden said Monday at a breakfast sponsored by Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in Washington, D.C. “Now we’re in a hail storm.”

The vice president went on to rip into the U.S. Supreme Court for weakening the Voting Rights Act.

Biden told the Sharpton group they are doing “God’s work” and praised both King and President Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed both the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act into law.

Looks Like Democrats Have the Registered Felon Vote … 7 in 10 Criminals Register as Democrats, 73% of Convicts Who Vote … Vote Democrat

Imagine that, most convicted felons register as Democrats … What a surprise, NOT! Nearly 7 in 10 felons register as Democrats. Now the only problem is having Democrats getting these ex-cons to the polls rather than holding up a liquor store or a bank. There is really something to be said for a party that opening targets voting constituents that break the laws like felons and illegal immigrants. Speaks volumes indeed. Yea, I guess the Donkeys feel that while the felon is registering as a sex offender, they can register as a Democrat as well.

I think we might have found the one voting constituency that still supports Obama.

Prison_vote

A new study of how criminals vote found that most convicts register Democratic, a key reason in why liberal lawmakers and governors are eager for them to get back into the voting booth after their release.

“Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation,” said the authoritative study in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

The authors, professors from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, found that in some states, felons register Democratic by more than six-to-one. In New York, for example, 61.5 percent of convicts are Democrats, just 9 percent Republican. They also cited a study that found 73 percent of convicts who turn out for presidential elections would vote Democrat.

The study finds that it is not even close. The following is the Democrat-to-Republican breakdown in felon party registration patterns for the three states the study was conducted:

  • New York: 61.5% register Democratic, 9% register Republican
  • New Mexico: 51.9% Democratic, 10.2% Republican
  • North Carolina: 54.6% Democratic, 10.2% Republican

Hmm, Democrats want no part of voter ID to prevent voter fraud. But they have no problem with targeting felons for their vote. Democrats will condemn the Tea Party and call Conservatives evil and that they want to throw grandma from her wheel chair over the cliff, yet Democrats seek the vote of the individual that actually robs, assaults and rapes grandma. Just sick!

Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Job Approval Rating Falls to Low of 38% … Obamacare at 34%, Handling the Economy 37%, Not Honest & Trustworthy 52%

HOW LOW CAN THE LION LYING KING GO …

According to the UK Daily Mail, a recent Quinnipiac poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continuing to fall, down to 38% while a whopping 57% disapprove. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are reaching epically bad levels as there is no end in sight for Americans finding out further bad news regarding Obamacare and the 2000 unread pages in how it affects people’s lives. Americans continue to find out and realize that they were lied to and the impacts are directly being felt. Obama is seeing lows across the board in handling the economy, healthcare, foreign policy and is seeing support from key groups like Latinos and Millennials completely fall apart. But wait, there is one thing that Obama gets high marks in, 52% polled say that Obama is not honest or trustworthy.

Once a president loses the trust of the people, they are finished, #You Lie!

Obama_handonforehead

Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush’s following Hurricane Katrina.

The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 per cent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 per cent saying they disapprove.

The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 per cent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 per cent margin.

Worse for Obama’s fast-approaching legacy-building years, the public believes he is not ‘honest and trustworthy,’ by a 52–44 per cent score. A smaller majority, 51 per cent, said he lacks ‘strong leadership qualities.’

Quinnipiac_poll_jobapproval_121013

More bad news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll … (pdf).

Today, Obama gets negative scores of 6 – 92 percent among Republicans, 30 – 62 percent among independent voters, 31 – 64 percent among men, 44 – 49 percent among women and 29 – 65 among white voters. Approval is 76 – 18 percent among Democrats and 85 – 9 percent among black voters.

  • 37 – 59 percent on his handling of the economy
  • 34 – 62 percent on health care
  • 42 – 49 percent on foreign policy
  • 40 – 48 percent approval for his handling of the situation in Iran
  • 49 percent young voters now saying they disapprove of his job performance
  • 43 percent of Hispanics now oppose Obama

Barack Obama Approval Down 23 Points Among Hispanics in Past Year from 75% to 52%

Barack Obama en el otoño político libre …

According to a recent Gallup poll, it appears that some one’s job approval poll numbers are in free fall with pretty much every demographic, and Hispanics are at the top of the list. Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are down with Latinos this year from 75% to 52%. ¡Dios mío … I guess me can expect an Obama mad rush for amnesty.  However, that is not the only group that Obama has lost ground with. Obama has also lost Moderates (-16), 18-29 year olds (-15), Independents (-15), women (-14), Conservative Democrats (-14) , Democrats (-13), 30-49 year olds (-12), 50-64 year olds (-12) and even Blacks at -9. However, it appears that Legal Insurrection has found one group that has maintained their support for Obama, Conservative Republicans are only at -2, down from 7% to 5%. HA!

Not only does Obama not have coattails, he is now considered toxic.

Obama_latinos

Can we call this a total and complete loss of the America people? Imagine if the election was held today with the American people knowing the truth about many of Obama’s lies and the MSM was forced into not carrying the water 100% of the time for their leader?

Gallup_Obama_jobapproval_groups_120613

 

From Gallup:

President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average.

Hispanics’ approval ratings of Obama have shown the most variation of any group’s ratings throughout his presidency. That means their views of him are less firmly anchored than those of other groups, which may help explain why their opinions of the president soured more than any other group’s in recent months. Despite the significant decline in their approval ratings over the past 12 months, a majority of Hispanics, 52%, still approve of the job Obama is doing.

A note to Republicans, namely Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership in the House … if you pass a BS amnesty bill you will collapse the Republican party forever. Hot Air correctly points out that the Democrats do not own the Latino vote. You have an opportunity to make real reform with immigration and deal with this issue in a common sense way.  One of those is to actually uphold the oaths that all of you took and to follow the US Constitution and uphold the laws of the land. I have always believed that Hispanics were not a monolithic voting block and were interested in many things other than immigration (amnesty), like the economy, real healthcare reform, jobs and the truth.

If the first two months of ObamaCare could push him nearly underwater with Latinos, what will another year of rate shock and shrinking provider networks do? Without lifting a finger, the GOP may be back in play for this demographic — not so much that they’d win it outright, but enough that they could close the gap to, say 15-20 points instead of 40-45. In a tight election, that would be ruinous for Democrats.
