This is an unfinished work. I had more sources to research, but was too time starved and too depressed to go on. Please feel free to add comments.
I am traveling with limited time or computer access, and left this to post.
Many of these are pulled from e-mails or posting on the web. Some large, some small, some new, some old, and in no particular order:
He promised that “people making under $250,00 a year won’t pay a penny more in taxes.” Then:
• He raises cigarette taxes $101 a pack, which hits the poor hardest, as they smoke more.
• He supported a healthcare bill that has a tax on “Cadillac” plans that will eventually tax about 20% of the people making between $50k and $75k. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C02E0DE1638F93AA15751C1A96F9C8B63
• The Healthcare bill has other taxes as well, in violation of his promise. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/dec/27/harrys-dream-come-true/?feat=article_top10_shared
• He supports letting the Bush tax cuts expire which, contrary to the narrative they sold the media, will increase everyone’s taxes. http://blog.heritage.org/2010/01/01/morning-bell-happy-tax-year/
• He supports a healthcare reform bill that will charge married people more than single people living together. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126281943134818675.html
• We are learning the healthcare bill has many new taxes in violation of his promises to the American people.
He promised transparency in the negotiations for the Healthcare bills, and that they would be on C-Span (many times), then conducted all negotiations in secret.
When John McCain called him on it at the so called “Healthcare Summit,” he said, ‘The election’s over, John.” Translation: They promises were to get votes from the rubes, I never meant to keep them.
He sealed many of his college and other records, so Americans would know little of his past.
He comes from Chicago politics, and appointed many members of the Chicago Machine and Illinois Combine (including Republicans) to his administration.
He bought his home with the assistance of a corrupt, convicted political fixer, Tony Rezko.
He supports Cap and Trade bills that will kill the American Economy and raise costs for everyone, based on increasingly-challenged bad science.
At the bidding of the unions, he opposes free trade agreements that have always helped the economy. It was anti free trade in the form of Smooth-Hawley that locked in the great depression, because trade collapsed. The rest of the world seems to have learned that and is going forward with it.
He is an enemy of economic freedom and is a supporter of government planning, at a time when India and China have become economic powerhouses by opening up their economies to free markets. http://ow.ly/TkSV
He killed the Charter school program in DC which gave poor black families the right to choose their kids schools as he has for his kids, at the behest of teachers’ unions.
Worked for and supported ACORN, a criminal organization involved in tax evasion and voter fraud.
He revealed his true leaning by hanging a decoration showing mass-murderer Mao on the White house Christmas Tree. Hitler would have been better—Mao killed three times as many people.
He is the 1st president in 110 years to miss the annual Army-Navy Football Game.
He is the 1st president to not attend any Christmas religious observance.
He is the 1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.
Add to that he’s the first President not to stay in Washington for Christmas for the last 20 years. Past Presidents did not leave Washington for Christmas vacation until after Christmas. This was done so that their staff (Secret Service, Air Force One Crew, Limousine transport, Presidential advancing logistics etc.) could be with their families for Christmas.
He appointed Janet “the System Worked” Napolitano as Secretary of Homeland Security. She focused the department of watching American veterans as potential terrorists, rather than Islamic militants.
He appointed Erroll Southers as TSA head. He’s a former FBI agent who lied to Congress about his having misused the system to search records.
He went to Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years without every discovering that Wright was anti-American and a racist.
He promised “bi-partisanship” and an end to Washington as usual. Then shut out Republicans and every Republican suggestion from the Healthcare Bills. He supported a process avoiding a conference committee, so no Republican would have a say.
Despite some lip service, he opposes tort reform, which would lower the cost of healthcare (rather than shift it to other people like taxpayers) because the Trial Lawyers are major Democrat contributors and almost all Democrat leaders are lawyers.
He declared that “we are at war with al Qaeda,” but treated the al Qaeda attacker on Christmas day 2009 as a criminal, rather than a POW, assuring that we would get no information from him to prevent future attacks.
He allowed his Attorney General, eric Holder, to schedule the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind, as a civilian trial in New York, opening up the opportunity for al Qaeda to stage a terrorist attack to demand his release.
He decided his political appointee should control how much bankers get in bonuses, but approved limitless bailouts for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, with large bonuses for their executives, despite these agencies’ role in triggering the housing bubble and economic collapse.
He engineered the government and union takeover/bailout of GM and Chrysler. Spent $3B on the cash-for-clunkers programs, in which future taxpayers help people buy cars now they were likely to buy anyway.
With almost no facts, he called the Cambridge police “stupid” for arresting a belligerent supporter of his, but said we shouldn’t “jump to conclusions” when a Muslim murdered 14 Americans while shouting “Allah Akbar.” He called the al Qaeda Christmas Crotch-Bomber an “Isolated Incident.”
Betrayed his lack of understanding of foreign countries when, during the campaign, he complained that Iraq was soaking up translators needed in Afghanistan, where they speak different languages than Iraq.
He changed the name of the “War on Terror” to “Overseas contingency operations.” Since the failed al Qaeda Christmas Crotch-Bomber attack was in Detroit, seems to be slowly sliding back to ‘war on Terror.”
He gave Interpol diplomatic immunity, abrogating American’s constitutional rights.
He appointed Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria as ADC National Executive Director and as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
He made a deal with the drug makers association. They spend millions supporting his healthcare takeover and he took reducing drug costs out of the bill. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/Once-Obama_s-target_-lobbyist-Tauzin-now-his-pet-8722075-80746897.html
He gets a lot of campaign funding and funding to support his agenda from big unions. Then he rewarded them with our dollars. http://commonamericanjournal.com/?p=8800
He supports taking the secret ballot away from working people in union elections, leaving them open to intimidation and violence by union thugs.
He blames Bush for everything that happens.
He thinks he deserves a Peace prize for being him.
He appointed a new commander in Afghanistan in March, 09, and announced a New Strategy. When the new strategy required more troops needed for that strategy, he wobbled for three months, gave the commander half of what he needed, and told the Taliban if they just hold out until July of 2011, we’ll go home and they can go back to abusing women.
He tried to interfere in the Democratic process in Honduras when they threw out a leftist for violating their constitution. But when the Mullahs in Iran murdered democratic protesters in the streets, he was silent.
He thinks the president should bow to foreign leaders.
His crack on Leno about the Special Olympics tells you what kind of person he is, and who he looks down on. And his Chief of Staff uses “retarded” as a pejorative, so it’s ingrained in this administration.
His answer to every problem is “a review.”
His healthcare bill will cause many seniors to lose private coverage.
By putting the blame on the CIA for the crotch-bomber, he strained an already bad relationship, which needs to be good for our safety. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/01/obamas_problems_with_the_intel.html
Voted for the 2007-08 deficits he criticizes Bush for, and in his first year, ran up a larger deficit than all 8 Bush years put together, with no end in sight. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/12/08/wapo-repeats-inherited-deficit-fallacy/
Imposed a deadline on Iran about nukes that was meaningless, and they knew it.
Rewarded his Wall Street donors with bailout money.
He lied or was wrong about Islamic history in his Cairo speech, crediting Islam with things that pre-dated Islam.
Has shifted US policy away from Israel, our only Ally and the only democracy in the region. He showed great disrespect for Israel’s PM.
His appointees dropped a voter-intimidation case against Black Panthers caught on tape threatening white voters in Philadelphia to prevent them from voting. They denied requests from the US Civil rights Commission about the case. In Obama’s America, it’s okay to intimidate voters if blacks do the intimidating.
Obama mentor Jeff Jones helped author the ObamaCare bill. Jones co-founded the Weathermen, led the Days of Rage in Chicago in 1969, and then went underground for the next eleven years with fellow revolutionary and current wife Eleanor Stein (who teaches "climate change" at Albany Law School). Jeff Jones tried to reconstitute the SDS just two years ago.
More than any other President, he’s used the “Friday News Dump” to try to hide bad news. http://www.pjtv.com/v/2841
He promised to allow five days public comment before signing bills. He broke that promise.
He promised to end no bid contracts. He broke that promise.
He promised not to have lobbyists in his administration working on the things they lobbied about. He broke that promise.
He promised to end earmarks, but has signed bills full of them.
He promised to recognize the Armenian genocide. He broke that promise.
He has proposed a tax on banks that got bailouts that will discourage lending and be passed on to customers. This will apply even to banks that didn’t get, or didn’t want bailout money, or that paid it back with interest. It will not apply to the union-controlled car companies we bailed out. Nor will it apply to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who helped start the housing collapse, and for whom the Obama administration has guaranteed unlimited bailouts.
He’s so convinced of his star power, he thought he could tame Iran with words, bring home the Olympics and get an agreement in Copenhagen, despite the ClimateGate revelations that much of the global warming “science” is hype..
He supported the failed stimulus package. Taking money from the economy, raking off the bureaucrats share, them putting the rest back in to favored constituencies doesn’t create wealth, though it redistributes it.
Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, spied on U.S. military installations in Hawaii for the Soviet Union , edited a communist newspaper, and wrote poetry in praise of mass-murdered Joseph Stalin.
His academic records are sealed from kindergarten through law school. Why?
He arrived in New York in June of 1981 without enough money to get a hotel room, but one month later flew to Indonesia and Pakistan ... Why did he go? Who paid his expenses?
He traveled to Pakistan when it was illegal for U.S. citizens to do so. So what country's passport did he use?
His Law School Admission Test scores and grades at Columbia University are known to have been mediocre, but he was admitted to Harvard Law School through the intervention of a Saudi named Khalid al-Mansour.
He was a law review editor who never published an article in any law review.
He thinks "water boarding" terrorists is immoral, but that partial-birth abortion is fine.
He publicly laments slavery in America -which was abolished 150 years ago-but praises Islam, which still practices both slavery, oppression of women, child rape, and the sexual mutilation of young girls.
He has never created a job, met a payroll, or even operated a lemonade stand, but wants to tell Detroit how to make cars.
He is a President who has never before served as an executive in either the private or the public sector.
His health records are sealed from childhood to the present day.
He cheated GM's bondholders by giving their property to the UAW in a political payoff.
He is a “constitutional scholar” who expressed disdain for the U.S. Constitution on a Chicago radio station because it limited the government's ability to "redistribute wealth."
His Secretary of the Treasury cheated on his taxes---as did several other appointees and advisors.
He downgraded our intelligence gathering activities from China.
He promised to end no-bid contracts, but awarded one for $25M to a campaign supporter.
He doesn't know enough about the military to say "Corpsman" correctly. He can hardly speak off a teleprompter.
He said it's embarrassing that Americans only speak one language. He only speaks one. George Bush speaks two.
He’s a “constitutional scholar” who doesn’t know the constitution. In his State of the Union address, Obama stated that "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal...." "the notion that we are all created equal" is not "enshrined in our Constitution" -- it's from the Declaration of Independence.
He claimed to be open to offshore drilling for oil, but was lying.
His new drilling plan is set up to be blocked by bureaucrats at every turn.
His knowledge of history is so poor he thought that Emperor Hirohito signed the Japanese surrender. Guess they don’t teach American history much in Indonesia
He lies casually, just to sound good. During the campaign, he said his parents got together because of the ML King march in Selma. The march took place four years after he was born. In Russia he told a class of students that he met his wife in class. Actually, she graduated from Harvard before he got there—but it sounded good.
He lied about his relationship with ACORN
He claimed to be a professor of constitutional law, when actually he was only a lecturer. Big difference at a university.
His wife received a VERY large raise when Obama was elected to the US Senate, and in return he got her University a nice earmark, a good return on their investment. Since she left the position to move to Washington, they have decided it wasn’t valuable enough to fill.
He increased the National Debt by $2 Trillion in his first 421 days as President.
He made it safer to attack America:
Obama Limits When U.S. Would Use Nuclear Arms
He has acerbated racial tensions in America by constantly using his surrogate to suggest that any disagreement with his policies is racist.
List of Obama scandals. If half true...
He…oh, the hell with it. Drink your Kool-Aid and shut up.
