Could it be Obama and the Mrs. Dancing at the Hero's Ball?

Nope - he eschewed the traditional Hero's Ball to party with Hollywood.

How about regarding some promises?


How about Barney Frank - key dude Freddy and Frannie?


How about those figures on Recovery.org about jobs saved or created?

"STIMULUS WATCH: Salary raise counted as saved job

By BRETT J. BLACKLEDGE and MATT APUZZO – Nov 4, 2009

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's economic recovery program saved 935 jobs at the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council, an impressive success story for the stimulus plan. Trouble is, only 508 people work there.

The Georgia nonprofit's inflated job count is among persisting errors in the government's latest effort to measure the effect of the $787 billion stimulus plan despite White House promises last week that the new data would undergo an "extensive review" to root out errors discovered in an earlier report.

About two-thirds of the 14,506 jobs claimed to be saved under one federal office, the Administration for Children and Families at Health and Human Services, actually weren't saved at all, according to a review of the latest data by The Associated Press. ..."

You'd think that updating a website at the cost of 18 MILLION TaxPAYER Dollars could devise a way of counting that isn't 600,000 lbs plus of horseshit in a 20 lb bag.

And the DEMS want America to trust 1/6 of the economy to an Administration that can't count, lies, and hides and sneaks around weekends to bullshit its agenda through with a program of crap legislation that collects taxes for 10 year and only provides less than total universal insurance coverage for the now uninsured for only 4 or 5 or 6 (at best) of those years.

Have people in this country UTTERLY lost their minds?

Call your Reps and Senators - NOOOOO to this latest Obamanation.

    My ego is fine - thanks.

    You haven't a clue what the truth is - just regurgitate liberal progressive talking points and whine about how the MAN has trodden upon the rights of the oppressed.

    It hasn't been trusted for over 200 years - do you not know the history of this country?

    You hear whining and cowardice - really? I say you project. You ever serve this country - outside of making sure people see themselves as victims? Why don't you take your civil rights bleeding heart overseas to China or Africa or the Middle East? Where real civil rights atrocities take place?

    Save us your blather - I'm kind of surprised you didn't get on the Racist bandwagon - are you just saving that for your next ridiculous installment?

    I don't trust any government. Government always reaches for control over your pocketbook and life. It's a necessary evil, but needs to be watched and kept small. Our Founding Fathers realized this which is why we have a Bill of Rights.

    When you start to "trust" government, you become its slave. The only thing to trust is God. I've heard too many people say that governments are put in place to help. Really? Governments exist to control. They are to promote peace and prosperity. When they get large enough to demand a large part of your prosperity, that's when you should start to worry. You should have been vigilant before that time comes to prevent it.
    Read the Declaration over again so you can understand exactly why this country was formed.

    No, we should not trust the government, and even the Founding Fathers placed within the framework the tenets to not trust the government.

    The current status quo of political elitism has been in place almost since the start of the Nation, despite the efforts of the Founding Fathers to to put within the framework the tools and ideals to prevent the Federal Government from taking control of our lives, instead of serving us.

    Today, the two biggest mechanisms that are keeping the political elite in power are the lack of term limits for Congress and the gerrymandering of districts for the members of the House of Representatives. As long as members of the Senate and the House can make a career of 'political servitude' and members of the House can hand pick their constituents by redistricting to ensure their reelections, the power struggle to control the populace will remain in favor of the political elite.

    Unless...

    Americans wake up to this and start to carefully consider their ability to remove the political elite from their positions of power in the voting booth.

    I have never trusted the United States Government and it has never given me any reason to trust it! This government is supposedly one that was formed by the people, for the people. Yet in every dealing with the government, from the top down, the US citizen is treated with suspicion and disdain. Our politicians act like we are stupid and they have all the answers.

    In addition, it has become crystal clear that Congress pulls the wool over our eyes by passing bills that they don't read and which contain items that we would never had consented to. The entire government is nothing more than a bunch of crusty men and Nazi Pelosi who are playing power ball with their ego's.

    Both the Democrat and Republican parties have shown a disturbing willingness to break laws the rest of us would go to jail for breaking.
    Worst of all though are members of Congress who commit all kinds of crimes and never get punished and they go on to write some of the major laws of the land that we all have to abide by but they usually exempt themselves from because they obviously feel they are above and beyond the law.
    Two blatant examples of this right now are Senator Dodd and Representative Rangel. They have both committed serious crimes and are under investigation, which just drags on, for these crimes but will probably never be convicted or punished for any of their wrong doings solely because they are members of Congress. Yes they are both Chairmen of powerful committees and at a minimum should have been removed from these positions long ago. Of course if you are an ordinary citizen and committed the crimes that these 2 individuals have committed you would already be serving a long jail sentence but nothing has or will probably ever happen to these to individuals, because they are powerful politicins.
    NO, I do not trust the United States Government.

    This administration is hell bent of shoving every one of their liberal socialist plans right through to be signed by a very eager and willing communist, whose first priority is to destroy this country and it's greatness.

    Why? You can't have a NWO with the current position the US holds in the world.

    Do I trust the US government, who has sold it's soul to whatever mysterious, dark, shadowy figure is pulling the strings (Soros)?

    Do I trust a government that tries to hide the truth and then silence those who try to tell it, meanwhile backing the biggest hoax ever perpitrated on the world, Climate Gate?
