When it comes to lies and pandering, Barack Obama has balls as big as church bells.
Speaking to veterans, Obama said that there is no reason for cuts to defense if "Congress" could do their job. Translation: Those damn Republicans need to get the hell out of the way, let me do what I need to do to weaken the country, and get on with fundamentally changing the country to a socialist utopia. Who in the hell do they think they are?! I'm Barack Obama!!
In another of his speeches to use veterans and the military for a photo-op backdrop, Obama says that Congress needs to come to a "balanced approach" that reduces the deficit and keeps the military strong.
What crap! Barack Obama is interested in reducing the deficit and taking care of veterans only in the context of political posturing during an election year. His administration has racked up $1 TRILLION plus deficits every year he has been in office! All of a sudden he is a fiscal conservative? He has not submitted a single budget which has gotten even ONE vote in Congress - from Democrats or Republicans. Harry Reid has not brought a single budget up for a Senate vote in nearly four years! Obama and the Democrats have not been serious about spending, deficits, or the boosting the economy since he took office. This is all smoke a mirrors. Election-year pandering.
Let's be clear about Barack Obama, and other leftists in Congress, like Reid, Pelosi, Rosa DeLauro: He neither likes, nor respects, the military, the people in it, or what he believes it stands for. He, like all leftists, see the military only as a necessary evil, and as a projection of imperialism. To him, military people are a bunch of warmongering rednecks who run around the world looking to shoot weapons and oppress others. After all, they enlisted! And, of their own free will!
If Barack Obama gave a crap about the military and our veterans, would he have proposed back in February that vets healthcare insurance costs increase by the following?
30 percent to 78 percent in Tricare annual premiums for the first year. After that, the plan will impose five-year increases ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent—more than 3 times current levels.
But, that isn't all. As part of that same proposal, unionized DOD civilians plans are not touched! Just the plans of our military men and women.
The Administration has admitted that the reason is to force military retirees out of TriCare and into ObamaCare! There's your friggin' "Hope and Change" for any vet who supports this jack-wagon. Nancy Pelosi said "we have to pass the bill so you can, uh, find out what's in it". So they passed it without reading the damn thing, and the more we find out what's in it, the more we find that it's a big sh*t sandwich!
So, while Obama and his Administration are out running commercials encouraging people to apply for food stamps and other government handouts, and over doubling the amount of people on food stamps alone(!), Obama would have people believe that the only place to cut the budget is one of the few things that is constitutionally mandated the government provide - the military. For you leftists out there, and I know it's hard to believe, welfare, food stamps and other government goodies are NOT constitutionally mandated. And no, the "welfare clause" is not talking about governement welfare checks. I don't care what your teacher or professor told you. They're wrong.
The truth is, Obama is, once again, using the military as a political pawns for his benefit. These are not the actions of a man who has respect and reverence for the men and women who willingly sacrifice themselves for something greater than themselves - something that Barack Obama has never done, not ever will. His allegiance is only to himself.
Obama says Congress ought to avert year-end budget cuts

RENO, Nevada - US President Barack Obama said on Monday that there was no reason billions in across-the-board federal budget cuts should occur at the end of this year, saying lawmakers in Congress ought to agree on a balanced plan to avoid the widely feared pinch.
In a speech to veterans, Obama said it was still possible to avert the pending cuts to defense and other areas that stem from a failure to reach a deal last year to reduce the federal deficit.
