You Can’t Polish Horse Manure - Part 2

To listen to some of our “esteemed” politicians when they discuss the problems facing us as a nation, you’d think we are all stupid and uninformed (although, in my opinion, many who voted to re-elect Obama might fall into that category of being stupid and uninformed). Many voted for him because of the color of his skin, not the content of his character.

What is amazing is that many politicians will take a set of facts that are not favorable to their views or to their candidate, and try to “spin” the negative (unflattering) facts into trying to have us believe that what we know, is patently B.S. The single biggest practitioner of this attempt at obfuscation and untruthfulness is our own leader, Barack Hussein Obama.

Being the consummate politician that he is, he never stops attempting to “polish horse manure”, and he can do it with a straight face over and over again. He is shameless besides being arrogant and condescending.

Take his “signature act”, Obamacare (a/k/a The Affordable Care Act). He knew what was in this health care monstrosity back in the summer of 2010. He knew that the “grandfather clause” of people being able to keep their health care insurance, would be null and void when sign ups were to begin in Oct. 2013, if their insurance wording changed in any respect from July, 2010 forward to the sign-up date. But for the past 3 years, Obama kept exclaiming that, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, PERIOD“. The same with your doctor, you can keep your doctor, PERIOD. Even up to a week before the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, he was saying that “lie” over and over again.

As of this date, approx. 6 million individual policyholders have been notified that their policies do not meet the Obamacare criteria so their policies are no longer going to be in effect in 2014. So no matter what Obama says or does, he cannot “polish horse manure”, no matter how hard he tries. Think of all the employees who are insured by companies, companies who got a year’s waiver till the end of 2014, who will find that their companies health care policies don’t meet the Obamacare criteria and therefore will be dropped and will have to go to the Obamacare insurance exchanges to purchase their health care policies. They’ll find that their premiums will be higher and their deductibles will rise precipitously, making it a double whammy for the average employee. In many cases, employers will drop health care coverage altogether. This is why Obamacare is turning out to be a monumental disaster.

In addition, Obama has been proclaiming that he is responsible for all this tremendous “economic growth” we have experienced during his 5 years in office. The EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES! It doesn’t  matter that we have a stagnant, pathetically little growth economy, that is averaging around 2% per year (during Reagan’s 2nd term, our GDP was averaging between 5% and 6% growth). It’s like he can’t (or won’t) see the forest for the trees. He projects the idea that if he says it, it must be true. That’s the persona of a narcissist, not a leader who is our President. He thinks he is a legend in his own mind.

So, no matter what he says or does, Obama cannot “polish horse manure” no matter how hard he tries, and you can take that to the bank.

When you listen to the Sunday talk shows or listen to CNN or MSNBC, the Democrats and the liberal talking heads are repeating prepared robotic statements trying to put a happy face on the disastrous Obama policies. Do they think we are all stupid? It seems that way. The same catchphrase is used by all these purveyors of misinformation, like we can't see for ourselves that we are getting the royal shaft by our out of control government and by our "esteemed" President. Let's hope the people wise up in November and throw those double-talking robots out and take back the Senate and remain in control in the House. We can't let Obama run roughshod over the Constitution for the next two years.
