With Lies Begetting Lies By This Administration: America's Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost

A new record was set today in the 100 meters. It was set by Senate Democrats running away from Obamacare...Leno

  • "America's chickens are coming home to roost." Borrowing that infamous phrase from Jeremiah Wright, one can argue it can be used to describe what happens to an administration and a complicit media that's been lying to the American people for the last five years.
  • I recalled that phrase after reading several important stories today. In one, John Crudele, the economic columnist for the NY Post, reported the unemployment numbers just prior to the last election were manipulated. In other words, the numbers were bogus. According to Crudele's piece, Julius Buckmon, an employee with the Census Bureau, said he was told to cook the numbers. In August of 2012, the unemployment rate was at 8.1%. By November, it had miraculously fallen to 7.8%. Even Jack Welsh, former CEO of GE said of those numbers at the time: "Unbelievable jobs numbers...These Chicago guys will do anything." The media at the time accused him of being a conspiracy nut. But he wasn't the only one questioning the data. Wall Street found them hard to swallow as well.
  • This report comes on the heels of an earlier one  showing the Obama administration knew three years ago millions of Americans would be unable to keep their health insurance. Yet, even though they knew that, Pres. Obama and his complicit surrogates (many Democrats) promised Americans would not lose their health insurance with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
  • And the lies don't end there (with this administration, they never do). The Washington Post reported a private consulting company---engaged by the administration to assess the web site---warned the administration that an Oct. 1, 2013 launch "was fraught with risks."
  • All of this and more (don't forget this administration's failed foreign policy) appears to be taking its toll. Whereas in the past, many Obama supporters took refuge in the administration's proclamations of "Hope and Change," they are now seeing those assertions were as false as the promises perpetuated in the last five years. As Michael Barone reported today, the polls are reflecting this change in the public especially with young voters and Hispanics. Both groups now view the Obama administration in a negative light when it comes to its handling of the federal budget, the economy, foreign policy and health care. In 2008 and 2012, Obama had overwhelming support in every category from those same two groups.
  • It appears, the Chickens indeed have come home to roost.

Pres. Obama, America's first Black president, decided to skip the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.
