Obama's Weekly Address: Translated To Expose The Lies

I am introducing a new feature on The ConservativeXpress inspired by Sean Hannity's "Liberal Translation."

Every Saturday I will break down President Obama's address to expose the myths, the lies and the crap that comes out of his mouth.


Two years ago, we set out on a journey to change the way that Washington works.

Two years ago, we set out on a journey to create The Socialist States of America.

We sought a government that served not the interests of powerful lobbyists or the wealthiest few, but the middle-class Americans I met every day in every community along the campaign trail – responsible men and women who are working harder than ever, worrying about their jobs, and struggling to raise their families.

"That served not the interests of powerful lobbyists" that do not serve Liberal interests. Lobbyists wrote the CRAPulus Spending Bill and they are going to write the budget. Don't be fooled by the Wordsmith In Chief. It's all lies.

And what's this "responsible" people crap? You mean the ones who refuse to pay their mortgage and are relying on ACORN's illegal home-invasions? The ones working hard at sitting on their asses sucking on the government teats of entitlements?

In so many town halls and backyards, they spoke of their hopes for a government that finally confronts the challenges that their families face every day; a government that treats their tax dollars as responsibly as they treat their own hard-earned paychecks.

You mean a government who uses the tax dollars of "others", you know, the "wealthy" to redistribute money from one class to another. Government has never spent our money responsibly!

That is the change I promised as a candidate for president. It is the change the American people voted for in November. And it is the change represented by the budget I sent to Congress this week.

Enough with the change crap! It's old news, Mr. President! We've all figured out already that you're full of sh*t.

During the campaign, I promised a fair and balanced tax code that would cut taxes for 95% of working Americans, roll back the tax breaks for those making over $250,000 a year, and end the tax breaks for corporations that ship our jobs overseas. This budget does that.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH! There is absolutely nothing "fair and balanced" about the tax code! Your definition of a "tax cut" in a big fat lie, sir! And end tax breaks that ship jobs overseas? You're going to raise corporate taxes which will FURTHER ship jobs overseas you fool! Why are you so anti-Capitalism?

I promised an economy run on clean, renewable energy that will create new American jobs, new American industries, and free us from the dangerous grip of foreign oil. This budget puts us on that path, through a market-based cap on carbon pollution that will make renewable energy the profitable kind of energy; through investments in wind power and solar power; advanced biofuels, clean coal, and more fuel-efficient American cars and American trucks.

Your cap-and-trade energy policy will cost trillions of dollars, lead to further job loss and will create a regressive energy tax on the "poor" people you are so committed to protecting. This is nothing but appeasement to the ENVIRONMENTAL LOBBYISTS you hypocrite!!!!

I promised to bring down the crushing cost of health care – a cost that bankrupts one American every thirty seconds, forces small businesses to close their doors, and saddles our government with more debt. This budget keeps that promise, with a historic commitment to reform that will lead to lower costs and quality, affordable health care for every American.

This budget will lead to national health care that has never worked and never will. Nationalized health care leads to "rationing" on treatments like MRI, CT Scans, blood tests, etc that the government will decide "if are medically necessary."

I promised an education system that will prepare every American to compete, so Americans can win in a global economy. This budget will help us meet that goal, with new incentives for teacher performance and pathways for advancement; new tax credits that will make college more affordable for all who want to go; and new support to ensure that those who do go finish their degree.

Yeah! Everyone gets to go to college for free now! Can I get a refund for the thousands of dollars in Student Loans I paid off? No?

This budget also reflects the stark reality of what we’ve inherited – a trillion dollar deficit, a financial crisis, and a costly recession.

YOU DID NOT INHERIT A TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT! That's a lie! This is your problem now! STOP BLAMING BUSH! This is the Obama Recession no, Mr. President!!!!!

Given this reality, we’ll have to be more vigilant than ever in eliminating the programs we don’t need in order to make room for the investments we do need. I promised to do this by going through the federal budget page by page, and line by line. That is a process we have already begun, and I am pleased to say that we’ve already identified two trillion dollars worth of deficit-reductions over the next decade.

We will eliminate programs that do not suit our Radical Socialist agenda to make room for more entitlement spending.

We’ve also restored a sense of honesty and transparency to our budget, which is why this one accounts for spending that was hidden or left out under the old rules.

Ha! Do you really believe the crap you spew, Mr. President? Seriously.

I realize that passing this budget won’t be easy. Because it represents real and dramatic change, it also represents a threat to the status quo in Washington. I know that the insurance industry won’t like the idea that they’ll have to bid competitively to continue offering Medicare coverage, but that’s how we’ll help preserve and protect Medicare and lower health care costs for American families. I know that banks and big student lenders won’t like the idea that we’re ending their huge taxpayer subsidies, but that’s how we’ll save taxpayers nearly $50 billion and make college more affordable. I know that oil and gas companies won’t like us ending nearly $30 billion in tax breaks, but that’s how we’ll help fund a renewable energy economy that will create new jobs and new industries. In other words, I know these steps won’t sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, and I know they’re gearing up for a fight as we speak. My message to them is this:

So am I.

I am the messiah! You cannot compete! "I won, I trump you on that."

The system we have now might work for the powerful and well-connected interests that have run Washington for far too long, but I don’t. I work for the American people. I didn’t come here to do the same thing we’ve been doing or to take small steps forward, I came to provide the sweeping change that this country demanded when it went to the polls in November. That is the change this budget starts to make, and that is the change I’ll be fighting for in the weeks ahead – change that will grow our economy, expand our middle-class, and keep the American Dream alive for all those men and women who have believed in this journey from the day it began.

Nothing you have done so far will do anything to help the middle-class. You are spending your way into a Socialist Obama-dystopia.

Thanks for listening.

Thank you for believing in the Gospel according to Obama.

  1. You are entitled to your opinions, but if you want to challenge facts you should be on correct ground.
    Fact: Please refer to Table s-5 on the president's budget document which states that the BEA Baseline deficit for FYE 2009 (which is for the year ending 9/30/09) is $1.2 trillion. The final version in the President's budget showed a deficit for FY 2009 of appx. $1.7 Tr. The approximate $500 billion difference is due to (a) appx. $215 million for the ARRA in FY 2009 (the larger part, about $360Bn, will be incurred in FY 2010) and (b) a $250 Bn placeholder for additional financial market support (bailouts of wall street) over the $350 bn already approved.
    Now certainly ARRA is on Obama's watch (though lets be clear that President McCain would have probably done something substantially similar - maybe $100bn less and maybe 60/40 tax/spend instead of 40/60 tax cut spend). On the financial markets as imperfect the Paulson efforts were, I do believe that Tarp I did stave off a complete disaster (Warren Buffet in his shareholder letter acknowledged as much in his shareholder letter today), though other than staving off immediate collapse (which they did and do deserve credit for) they effectively 'kicked the can' to Obama. Again, I'm not blaming Paulson for this, it was a lame duck administration so not sure what else they did, but the financial crisis is much more under Bush's watch. Obama does have to get it right, and frankly it is still early days to judge that and he can't use the 'didnt happen on my watch' excuse not to fix the banking problem, but equally it is a problem he has to fix it, and I don't think you can fault him for spending what will be necessary to recapitalize the US banking industry.

  2. The Baseline Obama uses is fuzzy math. The actual "inherited" deficit is somewhere between $500 billion and the $1.2 trillion.

    Eithery way, it's time to stop blaming Bush. It's unprofessional and unnecessary.

    Like it or not, this is Obama's Recession now. He is in charge. He is on the clock.

    And as far as complaing about the deficit, Obama will leave his successor with an incomprehensible debt. His numbers just do not add up.

  3. I wasn't good at fuzzy math either...

    We'll find out in 2012 if it still Obama's Recession or Obama's recovery.
