Obama Comes Clean

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In a strange coincidence, President Obama, as reported by Bloomberg, just followed Mario Monti's new normal and 'came clean' about the real state of the economy, following his earlier snafu:

  • *OBAMA SAYS `ABSOLUTELY CLEAR' ECONOMY NOT FINE, AP SAYS
  • *AP SAYS OBAMA SEEKS TO CLARIFY PRIVATE SECTOR REMARKS

The President went on to say that he knows the economy "needs to be strengthened" while clinging to his basic belief that there has been some momentum. Is 'truth' the new 'lie'? Or did hope and change just change on less hope?

What's your problem asshole? I'm asking a normal question here. Why are some members allowed to post images and others not? Is this fair? I don't think so. Either you allow all members to post them or none.

At the podium Barack was a smiler,

If you think he “came clean”

then to you it must seem

that only one person is Tyler.

A statist will lie every time he opens his mouth, he must, for the truth is antithetical to his belief. Therefore if he is caught telling the truth you can assume it's only because it somehow will further his agenda. And his agenda doesn't include you.

He is not trying to level with ppl, it was a slip of the tongue. Or, he was mis-quoted. Or misinterpreted. Or misunderstood.

BHO is not about personal responsibility. He is an amateur politician who says what he thinks ppl want to hear. He is a chameleon and that is the change you can believe in.

Double-speak. "Momentum" means nothing -- cancer has momentum as do snowballs rolling down a hill. Both are growing. "Momentum" does not mean improvement.

"Fine" also means nothing. For those of you who have school-age kids, what is the most common answer to "How was school?"

Economy, interesting word , what  would such a word mean?

Just a tiny word, let's have a look on this crowded little dictionary web page, ECONOMY.

 http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/economy?s=t

How is Economy / Economics correct language for the current situation?

Economy / Economics, it fails to compute !

The entire language and Dialogue is incorrect and without meaning,

Economy / Economics can not possibly describe the current market, situation, what the f*** situation, can it, Economy no longer describes.

Is it not a word now made void ? ? http://www.thefreedictionary.com/economy

Let me share an experience that occurred earlier this evening. Pay close attention. Thank you.

 

Me: Walk into a dive bar and ordered a beer while the Blackberry playbook fires up.

Me: Review the latest Marxist news bulletins on MSM, sips beer.

Me: Post the latest GOP advertisement on ZH regarding Obama private sector job hoax.

Me: Go out to patio to smoke, overheard Muppets talking about how bad the economy is.

Me: Return to my seat and the Blackberry playbook was still there. Go figure.

Me: Out of nowhere, this poor soul stands next to me holding only four dollars and claiming he may not be able to get home due to auto fuel storage. Wearing my brooks brothers suit and white dry cleaned shirt always attracts the Obama ‘debased plate form’ types <<< ---- humor to plate spinning frauds

The unknown person: He goes directly to the music box to slide unknown amounts to sooth his scam.

Me: Telling the barmaid, I have an experiment to test.

Barmaid: What are you planning to do Atomizer?

Me: I’m going to give that man $40 dollars to help him keep his car  tank full. Under no circumstance will this money be used to buy alcohol.  My experiment will demonstrate how people take money and hold little responsibility.

Barmaid: You got it

Me: Let him know I have a soft heart today.

Barmaid: Your 100% fucking right. When I gave him the money, he said thank you. Then he ask me if he could buy a drink for you.

Me: Do you understand why we have issues? At the end of the day, your $2.00 wage will eventually become a target.

Barmaid: Thank you for sharing that experience with me.

When considering Obama or his opinions, keep in mind (according to the book "confidence men") Obama shocked his advisors with the opinion that the high unemployment was the result of increase productivity and therefore natural; "not much you can do about it" was his opinion.  He also has the opinion no laws were broken in the financial/foreclosure meltdown.

When I first read this I immediately thought of George W Bush, another "Manchurian Candidate".

Of course he has to come clean about the economy being in bad shape. Lying about it would not survive the test of time - which for a politician means the timeframe from now to election.

Let us not forget the narrow minded ideology of totally unregulated capitalism by the so-called republicans and corporate America that led to the almost financial market collapse and the economic situation we are in today. The full recover will take decades, not years. After using the "Big Lie" in 2010, the Fascists gained control of the House of Representatives and have been obstructing any and all jobs, stimulus, and the restoration of the irresponsible cheney/bush tax cuts. Historically, the economy has grown almost twice as fast under the Democrats compared to the Big Lie republicans. PS I am not a Democrat

Why is it that up to 50% of the American people believe in the so-called republican "Big Lie"?

Don't they have the mental capacity to just do a wee bit of searching for the truth?

Why do they let their moral compass be controlled by Big Lie Propaganda?

The answer may be in the Shock experiments by Stanley Milgram.

All that matters are the cold, hard facts!
