Obama’s Lowlights (10/1/12)

Romeny 47% Comment- “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax. Romney went on: "[M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." How is this different from Obama’s “cling to religion and guns” statement in 2008 or his statement “you did not build that” earlier this summer? How about Obama’s statement that “You can’t change Washington from the inside, you have to do it from outside” this past week?

Indoctrination - Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC in Florida) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”

Calories – Students at a Wisconsin school are protesting an 850 calorie maximum limit for school lunches.

Propaganda – Recently uncovered emails show that the DOJ and Media Matters worked together on news stories, particularly covering up the Fast and Furious program.

Unemployment - The Social Security Administration announced a new record number for individuals collecting unemployment. In September, 8,786,049 American workers collected federal disability; this is a net increase of 18,108 from August.

Fast and Furious - The Inspector General’s report confirms findings by Congress’ investigation of a near total disregard for public safety in Operation Fast and Furious. The Justice Department’s inspector general recommended that 14 current federal officials face disciplinary reviews over the botched gun-trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious. In a scathing report, the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, laid primary blame on what he portrayed as a dysfunctional and poorly supervised group of Arizona-based federal prosecutors and agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. As part of the operation, those officials did not act to seize illegal weapons in hopes of bringing a bigger case against a gun-smuggling network linked to a Mexican drug gang. The IG report also states that Attorney General, Eric Holder, should have turned the programs documents over to congress. In other news, in an interview this past week on Univision, Obama had this say about the program “field-initiated program begun under the previous administration. When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. This is a flat out lie, the program started under Obama.

Libya – Ten days after the deadly attack on the U.S. embassy the Obama White House has conveniently changed its story that it was indeed a terrorist attack. Even CBS news had a scathing report about the administration’s handling of both before and after the attack.

Obama’s America – According to the CBO six million Americans -- from the middle class -- will pay an ObamaCare tax penalty and the number of adults on food stamps has doubled since Obama suspended the work requirement in welfare. In other news, the Washington Examiner released a story about Obama’s past and to be nice, he did not excel to the top, but had a mediocre rise at best. And no, Obama did not live a childhood of hardship as others may claim. And in case you missed it, the Obama campaign came up with a new version of the American Flag with the Obama “O” replacing the stars.


  1. It’s all bad news. Getting pretty depressing out there, Patrick.

  2. It is not as bad news as the polls. It does not look very good.
