It's becoming clear: Obama thinks American voters are stupid. Anyone believing Obama's current campaign promises is either gullible or amnesia-prone. Increasingly, his campaign speeches indicate a rather pitiful and cynical hope that Americans will not remember his earlier promises nor will they recall past decisions by the Obama Administration that have failed so spectacularly. Obama’s reelection strategy seems dependent upon an ability to fool most of the people one more time.
$1 out of every $10 the government gave out for unemployment benefits last year went to people who should not be getting them.
When President Obama signed the trillion-dollar stimulus law in 2009, he proclaimed that he was "keeping the American dream alive in our time." The stimulator-in-chief failed to mention that billions would be spent keeping American tax scammers afloat on our dime.
President Obama wants to convince the nation that many Americans, most of them small business owners, must pay more tax as “their fair share” of huge, annual deficits. What Mr. Obama never mentions is that he has surrounded himself with key advisors and selected key members of his Administration that are tax cheats.
IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman sees a major technological change in the agency's future that could make it easier to deter tax cheats and immediately reject tax returns that don't match information in the agency's database.
You never get a second chance to make a first post-inaugural impression. Less than three weeks into his first 100 days, Barack Obama has left an indelible mark on his nascent presidency: the mark of incompetence and hubris.
