Obama Forgets

Dear [American],
In just one week, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress and the nation.
The President always seems to conveniently forget in his speeches that he has been president for the past three years. We can expect him to refuse to take responsibility for how his big spending policies have contributed to our economic woes. Instead, the President will promote class warfare to gain support for his tax increases and bigger government.
So in advance of the State of the Union speech, Americans for Prosperity is launching “Obama Forgets,” a 7-day effort that will highlight some of the Obama Administration’s worst offenses to the principles of limited government and free market enterprise.
“Obama Forgets” will lead up to President Obama’s State of the Union address, when AFP will host large watch parties throughout the country.

Americans for Prosperity:

President Obama Forgets he signaled a new corruption-free era in Washington. But AFP activists want to remind him of that he wasted taxpayer money on a green jobs scam at Solyndra, gave preferential health care exemptions to his political allies and funded an organization accused of voter fraud.
President Obama’s stimulus package set up a $535 million loan for a solar energy company, Solyndra . The solar energy company not only was facing bad financial prospects, but received heavy investment from one of Obama’s top campaign contributors: George Kaiser. Despite receiving signs the company was about to go under, Obama continued to funnel taxpayer money into the failing business and tried his administration’s ties to the company’s funders.
Health care reform is another area where Obama’s corruption is apparent. The President held closed-door meetings with interest groups like the AFL-CIO and other labor unions. Later, he issued waivers for a unions and unionized companies so they wouldn’t be adversely affected by his new health care law. As a result, companies like AT&T projected higher costs of doing business, while unions got a break. In other words, what’s good for taxpaying Americans isn’t necessarily good for Obama’s political base and he rewarded his friends.
Finally, Obama passed a stimulus spending bill that gave handouts to Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) , an organization repeatedly convicted of voter fraud . Instead of using his power to promote prosperity, Obama is choosing winners and losers in an already corrupted economy.

Just remember, no matter how many bloody noses there are in the primary scrum, anyone on the right is a friend.

    But is Mitt a man of the Right?

    Would Newt govern from the Right?

    Anyone on the right is a friend until they prove otherwise.

    Someone needs to remind the AFP:

    Gunwalker, Gunwalker, Gunwalker

    I suspect the answers are no and no.
    But if they win, then the Republicans can take all of the blame as the country slides, at a pace slower than it would with Zero, to hades.

    But then I am an optimist.

    Which is something these idiots never want to talk about. Politicians of both parties are scared to death of the 2nd Amendment. As they are supposed to be. So don’t expect them to ever do more than give it lip service at best. When Mitt Romney hears Gunwalker might have been intended to provide an excuse to trash the 2nd Amendment, he thinks, “Damn I’d hate to mess that up.”

    I would rather that (hoping we could get enough conservatives into congress to thwart it) than I would seeing things go as they are going.

    This is the dilemma conservatives face in the fall if either Newton Leroy or Willard get the Nod: do we vote for a candidate who will not govern from the Right, but being a Republican will cause the Right to be blamed when the sharia hits the fan.

    And three of our four remaining candidates have proved otherwise.
