Obama flat out lied in his State of the Union Address. Let me quote some of them and bring to light the truth. Feel free to research it yourself if you don't believe me. I want America to know what is going on in Washington. Without the people, our Republic will die.
-"...We've excluded lobbyists from policy making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions."
Take a look at the English language used in this sentence -- (have) excluded. It's past-tense, meaning that currently there are no lobbyists in his administration. It's a bold-face lie.
There are more then 30 former lobbyists currently in Obama's administration. By the way, excluding lobbyists from his administration was also a campaign promise. Politico.com reported in January of 2009 that although Obama had made it a campaign promise to exclude lobbyists from his administration, he had appointed "at least a dozen" to top jobs in his administration. This was right after he took office! To read the entire article, go to http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0109/18128.html.
So, now exactly a year later he's going to lie to us again about the same thing! Does anyone else see the irony? Does he think we are that stupid? Or...maybe he's so enamored with himself he thinks he can get away with it. How arrogant. In fact, that's exactly it. He sees himself above us and the other branches of our government.
His arrogance as shown in the State of the Union Address:
--Criticizing the Supreme Court decision regarding campaign donations from companies and unions. His comment was, "I don't think American elections should be bankrolled by America's most powerful interests or worse by foreign enemies." Well, Mr. President, I don't think the Executive Branch (President) should be criticizing the Judicial branch of the government. They are EQUALS. It's not the role of Executive branch.
--The Senate (You know, those people that represent our states. The ones WE voted for. The third branch.) blocked a bill. Well, Obama didn't like it. So, in response he said, "I'll issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward." He's circumventing the Senate. In a nutshell, he's circumventing us.
What happened to the checks and balances of the Constitution? What happened to America NOT being subject to a King? Please, America, don't forget who You are. John Hanncock said,
"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ...Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."
