Butch has his biggest frown on, "I hear the arguments about this debt ceiling where some say up and others down. Some say its black and the others say white. If we don't raise the debt ceiling we will default on our interest payments to our borrowers some say. Others say no way. If we can't get a straight answer from DC on that question how do we sort through the proposals that pop up on a daily basis? The only truth I know is that truth has no honor in DC, and to be truthful, it is losing ground in every aspect of our society. One of the rare times we have caught our current White House resident telling the truth was when he said, 'My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.. I hope you'll join with me, as we change it.'-- Barack Obama, himself. One of Obama's biggest changes is to the old saying 'a man's word is his bond'?"
"A century ago, if someone gave their pledge, assurance, or handshake, that word or agreement was valid even in court. A man’s word was his honor! Over the years, we have justified twisting a word and its meaning into a complex pretzel, forgetting about honor and what a promise meant. We've had Presidents commit perjury and explained it away because 'everybody lies about sex'. When a politician is caught red handed, we say 'all politicians lie. He was campaigning for re-election. What do you expect?' Without honor, and truthfullness, we are despicable people, no longer worthy of trust."
Being one of Billy Roy's favorite topics he entered the fray, "Obama said when it came to raising taxes, 'I’m Just Giving the People What They Want! He lied like a dog in claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats’ demand for tax increases. He said, 'The American people are sold, the problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically'. He was twisting a Gallop poll as only a sleazy lawyer can. The poll truthfully says 55% of the American People are AGAINST raising the debt limit under ANY policy mix. You can stop right here in questioning where the people are compared to Obama who wanted to raise the ceiling with no in a clean bill with not restriction initially. 20% in the poll favor a deficit reduction plan that is PURE spending cuts and 30% favor MOSTLY spending cuts -- so, that 's 50% of the people. And then you have the Obama supporters where 32% of the American people want a pure "mix" -- equal cuts and tax increases; 7% favor MOSTLY tax increases; 4% favor ALL TAXES. So, Obama has 43% of the people with him. 50% against him. And he thinks he's leading an 80% majority. No matter how much an old mangy dog lies around even on a hot August day, this guy lies more."
"We all know by now if you want an accurate poll go to Rasmussen. His headlines say '55% Oppose Tax Hike In Debt Ceiling Deal'. Oops, where are Obama's 80% in this poll. Just 34% think a tax hike should be included in any legislation to raise the debt ceiling. There is a huge partisan divide on the question. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats (not even 80% of Dems?) want a tax hike in the deal while 82% of Republicans do not (there is a true 80% number). Among those not affiliated with either major political party, 35% favor a tax hike and 51% are opposed according to Rasmussen."
"At the same time, however, 52% believe it would be even more dangerous to raise the debt ceiling without making significant cuts in government spending than to not raise it at all. Thirty-seven percent (37%) take the opposite view and believe a government default would be more dangerous. Bottom line, if Obama's word is his bond, his bonds are rated way worse than JUNK. And he is the President of the leader of the free world."
"With the nation staring down $14 trillion in debt, a Senate that has failed to pass a budget in 811 days, a President whose budget was voted down in the Senate by a vote of 97-0, and a government that can't decide how to raise the debt ceiling, you might think that a plan to get spending under control and solve the debt ceiling impasse would be a welcome breath of fresh air in Washington. Well, it might be, unless you're President Barack Obama or liberals on Capitol Hill."
"Today, the U.S. House is set to vote on a Republican-sponsored plan known as 'Cut, Cap, and Balance' that 'would cut spending by $5.8 trillion over 10 years, cap future spending and require Congress to approve a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget before raising the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion'. Our President is telling the people he wants a 'big deal'. This is a big deal So what does he send his court jester, Jay Carney press secretary, out to do? He calls it, 'duck, dodge and dismantle’, and then the lies get bigger. The White House blog warns that the spending cuts it requires would burden 'seniors and the most vulnerable' and would be 'harmful to the economic recovery in the short-term' (a recovery where Obama has spent trillions which have led to 9.2 percent unemployment)."
"In Obama's press conference his liberal scare tactics and lies grew in which he struggled to even utter the plan's name, warned that the measures in the legislation are drastic and that a balanced budget amendment is unnecessary. He said 'we just need to do our jobs'."
Our jobs are to return to the days of old when a man's word was his bond. The lies and attacks will only increase as the Puppet President gets more desperate.
Think about it,
