Obama's :Lowlights (10/6/11)

Fast and Furious – Fox News revealed documents that not only link the ATF to buying guns and selling them directly to drug cartels, but they, not surprisingly, used taxpayer money to buy the guns. Obama Campaign – Obama is in full campaign mode and called out Republican audiences (at GOP debates) for “booing gay soldiers” and “cheering death”. He also criticized Perry’s position on climate change because the state of Texas has out of control wildfires. These are flat out lies and Obama is not a climatologist. ObamaCare – The DOJ failed to appeal the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals decision striking down the “mandate” to purchase health insurance. This means the decision will go to the Supreme Court and the administration must be confident the court will side with the legislation. Homosexuality – A Fort Worth Texas student was suspended for saying he felt “homosexuality was wrong”. The student was merely stating an opinion that contained no ill will towards homosexuality (he did not use derogatory terminology or use strong language such as hate) and the student has history of violence. Colorado – The White House issued a press release, including a map highlighting states Obama visited on last weeks’ campaign trip. The only problem is that they confused Wyoming and Colorado. It seems the president can use a geography refresher course (remember when he insisted there were 57 states in the United States – he was including territories such as Guan, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia and so forth as states). Ford – The automotive company ended a TV commercial that criticized its competitors (GM and Chrysler) for accepting bailouts because of pressure from the White House. Greece – In an attempt to reduce their debt and qualify for an 11 billion dollar loan, the Greece government has passed a property tax. Global Warming – The White House clarified its view on global warming (after blaming the Texas fires on global warming) as changes in weather patterns and trends (unpredictability). If that is true, why then do liberals support renewable energies that are dependent on weather patterns? And why do liberals trust climate change models that would be rendered obsolete if trends do not hold true? Once again, progressive logic is severely lacking sound judgment because it fails to analyze facts and data. Pakistan – Evidence has revealed that the Pakistan government was behind the attack on the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan. Illegal Immigration – A federal judge ruled in favor of the newly passed Alabama legislation stating “Federal law doesn't prohibit the law's provisions on students or suspects pulled over by police.” Terrorism - A 26-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested and charged last week in connection with a plot to attack the Pentagon and the Capitol, the Justice Department announced. Rezwan Ferdaus, a U.S. citizen, is accused of planning to use a remote-controlled aircraft filled with explosives to attack the buildings. ObamaCare – Health insurance premiums rose in 2011 by 9%. The cost per individual rose from 5049 dollars to 5429 dollars and the cost per family rose from 13770 to 15073 dollars. Taxes – Jordan Burroughs just won 50 thousand dollars for winning the 163 pound wrestling weight class at the world championships freestyle. Burroughs, who is African-American, just graduated from Nebraska and found out what taxes are like in the real world. He tweeted “I hate taxes” after he lost nearly half his purse. Beverly Purdue – The North Carolina governor discussed how democracy gets in the way of protecting people in need. American Jobs Plan – Even if the Obama Jobs Plan works as it is designated, it will cost the taxpayers 1.6 million dollars for every job created or saved. My Book: Is America Dying?
