Are you ready to vote for four more years of hope and change?
I cannot think of anything he promised in his 2008 campaign that he delivered on. So beyond blaming Bush for another election cycle, I cannot see a sound record he can run on.
He lied to progressives about Gitmo and several hot button issues.
Gitmo isn't closing. He has signed onto another war before ending the others that he promised to end. He has Farrakhan and the radical racist black separatist theology movement pissed off at him. They won't vote for a GOP candidate, but they have a history of staying home on Election Day, when they are dissatisfied.
He lied to independents and moderates too.
He told them this would be the most transparent government ever. It isn't. He said he'd cut the deficit, which was run up by Bush from his wars and tax cuts to rich people (which we now know is almost anyone that works without government assistance). He has exponentially increased the debt and the deficit, he caved on the tax cut extension.
I could go on and on here, but the bottom line is simple. He has lied to everyone. He lied to liberals, moderates, and conservatives across the board. He played on our fears.
He may be the highest profile candidate next year, but he isn't the only snake in the grass up for a vote. Here is someone who rode in on the anger express of the 2006 Democratic congressional sweep to power:
She lied to the people of Missouri to get her ass into Washington. Transparency seems to be the word that gets used when someone wants a job there. But once they win and relocate, it seems the transparency transforms into translucency, and then opaqueness, real quickly.
Here's another liar who has led the Democrats into this era of deceit and contempt:
As it turns out, we now learn that he wants to be a U.S. Senator from Virginia. The question is, does Virginia want him? The electorate of the commonwealth soundly rejected the Obama-backed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, in 2009. Do you think Virginians are any fonder of Obama now?
So when it comes right down to it, I think we do need hope and change this time around.
I certainly hope that the masses will change the way they select their elected officials. I hope they change the way the evaluate their candidates.
Are they selling a bill of goods that cannot possibly come to pass?
Or are they telling us that it's going to be a difficult job to fix the damage that this lying bunch has wrought on us all.... and it will be up to us to make the necessary sacrifices to get into a better position for the future of our children and grandchildren?
I know who I believe.
And I know who I don't.
Hint--it isn't anyone that believes in this failed President and the cheerleaders who have helped him destroy what our forefathers have built and protected, over the years.
