Hypocrites in The Dark

Well its been a while sense my last update, hope everyone’s holiday’s have gone well. Now on to the long over due update on the Obama Administration.

656.) President Obama is a hard core leftest progressive, we all know that, we have lived for four years under his progressive agenda. I remember back during the Bush Administration how everything President Bush did was subject to endless public critisim, as it should have been. One such critisim was the warrentless wiretap program that President Bush put into place. The program was designed to moniter overseas activity between suspected terrorist and spies.  This was met with uproar by the left, President Bush abusing federal power, and trampling our consitutional rights. Whether you agree with the program or not is not the issue being discused here. The issue being discussed here is the hypocrisy of President Barack Obama.

At the begining of President Obama’s five year campaign for a second term, way back in January of 2008 he gave a speech in Hanover New Hampshire where he said, “My job this morning is to be so persuasive…that a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Barack.” To help create this epiphany, to help summon this beam of light within the hearts and minds of the ivy league students gathered to see the Great One speak, he invoked many progressive idea’s, from magically saving the planet, to ending the war in Iraq. Of course no Obama speech would be complete without an attack on either Republicans, Fox News, Conservatives, or George W. Bush. To make sure he got his jab in he brought up the issue of the Warrentless Wiretaps.  Then Senator Obama said, “For one thing, under an Obama presidency, Americans will be able to leave behind the era of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and wiretaps without warrents.” Strong stance, the man is standing up for the Consitution, and the rights of the American People, and sense we had no real record to judge the man on, many of us were nieve enough to believe that he was going to restore rule of law to the nation.  Of course now, we have many examples of President Obama’s complete disregaurd of the law we can see through these hollow campaign lies. Yes President Obama came into office claiming he was going to end Warrentless Wire Taps, he also claimed that he was going to have the most open administration in history. Why then did he use the fog of chaos to conceal the fact that he, President Barack Obama, Champion of the progressive left, signed a five year extension to the Warrentless Wire Taping program?  I guess this is just another example of how everything is illegal and criminal untill President Obama does it.

President Obama called President Bush’s spending un-american. He then spends all most one trillion dollars within his first 100 days in office, and thanks to his unwillingness to compromise, and the magic of baseline budgeting, that trillion dollars is the gift that keeps on giving at an ever growing rate of 3 to 10 percent. 

President Obama blasted President Bush for the use of executive orders,  he then proceeded to issue 144 of them in his first term.

President Obama blasted President Bush for issuing signing statements. He then issued 20 of them.

President Obama blasted the Bush Administration for the warrentless wire tapping program. He then signs a five year extension of the program while the nation is focused on the fiscal cliff.

More politics as usual I am afraid from President Barack Obama.

  1. I am more worried as each day passes that he’ll totally destroy this country. I am scared for this place.America, you’re just a country that I used to know.

  2. @Marica0701 – He won’t destroy America, we will just change what that word means. He will destroy individual liberty, he will destroy our rights, he will destroy the freedomes that created the world that we live in today, all without losing a smile on his face. He will do it in the name of the greater good. Laugh at those who challenge his march towards the marxist utopia he and the progressive dream of.   America will still exist, just not as the United States of America. It will become the United Peoples Republic of America. The hammer and sickle replacing the stars and stripes.

  3. The funny thing about is, yes, he may have pulled out of Iraq. (and that is still a slow process) However, he is sending more soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors to Afghanistan, an even MORE dangerous place.30,000 more servicemembers to be exact. My husband’s unit is set to deploy in 2014.  My husband’s contract ends in 2013, but that does not mean that I am any less concerned about them and their safety.http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/military/july-dec12/afghanistan_08-24.html.

  4. The “warrantless wiretapping” bush did was literally just recording millions of peoples’ phone conversations at random who are not criminals or suspected of any crime or act of terrorism.  The bill you’re talking about just lets the government tap someone’s phone for a few days while waiting for the warrant (as opposed to 48 hours which was the rule before for the last 30 years) and if the warrant doesn’t get approved whatever they get from the tap is inadmissible in court.  That is not remotely the same thing.  Furthermore it only applies to people not in the US, since it ammends the foreign intelligence suveillance act (FISA).More misinformation, as usual.@Marica0701 – See the above.  And it’s sad you’re an obama conspiracy theorist, you’re the first person I’ve found on xanga who lives a stone’s throw from me.

    agnophilio – Just because Bush engaged in warrantless wiretapping does not make it right for Obama to do the same.  Obama has taken all of the horrid points of the Bush II years and amplified them.  If you really think the feds are limiting themselves to wiretapping communications to only those where one party resides abroad, you are a simpleton.  When a FISA court is asked for permission, over 99% of warrants are granted.  The FISA courts are a rubber stamp organization.The NSA has a notorious warrantless wire tapping program.  The Sixth Circuit Court found warrentless tracking of cell phones to be legal, and right now ATT alone receives 1,300,000 requests for personal information annually of which around 1/3 do not require warrants.The feds issue National Security Letters which are self-written warrants as vile as the Writs of Assistance and require no judicial oversight.  As usual, you are the one pushing misinformation, but your agitprop is aimed at a pushing totalitarian state doomed to fail as surely as did East Germany, the USSR, Fascist Italy, NAZI Germany, and the lovely economic powerhouse of Yugoslavia.  Way to go.  Your team is awesome.
