The Oath of Office taken by Presidents states: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Is lying at the United Nations about a video being the cause of the Benghazi attacks and killing of four Americans perjury to that oath? What about the promise that “the public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk”? Or the promise” “no more illegal wire tapping of American citizens”? Or the promise to close Guantanamo Bay?
How about the 40 times repeated promise: “if you like your plan you can keep your plan”? Or the promise that your health care insurance cost will go down? Or the promise, repeated 19 times that if you already have insurance Obamacare will reduce your premiums to $2,500 per year. Or the promise repeated over and over that there will be no new taxes under Obamacare? The President broke the truth in labeling idea hundreds of times.
Most troubling the President knew these promises were false and would not be kept. He made them knowing they were false. The non-legitimacy of the PPACA and of the President is beyond question. The act was a perfect set of lies. A moral code was broken big time.
What about taking 3 billion dollars from people who earned it to help buy new cars for others? The “Cash for Clunkers” program was unconstitutional. It had the additional, wrong effect of removing low priced cars from the market, a move that hurt the ability of the poor to buy low cost cars. The biggest beneficiary of the Cash for Clunkers was Toyota whose market share increased more than American brands.
The General Motors bailout cost taxpayers billions and closed production of three American brands. There are no more Pontiacs, Saturns or Oldsmobiles. Obama closed those factories. The iconic American Jeep is owned by Fiat. Chrysler is controlled by Fiat. Obama did not “Save the American Auto Industry”. He sold it and closed all but a small portion and destroyed the low cost used car market in the process, after paying off the union workers which was a down payment for union votes in 2012.
“The Obama Administration Has Managed The Nearly Impossible Feat Of Turning Energy Policy Into A Money Loser, Pouring Taxpayer Dollars Into Green-Energy Busts Like Solyndra.” (Editorial, “The Non-Green Job Boom,” The Wall Street Journal, 11/28/11)
Obama Predicted His Investments In Green Energy Would Create 5 Million Jobs
the results so far suggest such numbers are a pipe dream.” (Aaron Glantz, “Number Of Green Jobs Fails To Live Up To Promises,” The New York Times, 8/18/11)
“.. today I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks At The Fiscal Responsibility Summit, Washington, D.C., 2/23/09)
The Obama Programs increased the NATIONAL DEBT, in both dollars and percent’s, more than any other president. On January 20, 2009 the day Obama was sworn in the national debt was $10.6 trillion, according to the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s “Debt to the Penny” calculator. As of today it is $17.3 trillion, on track to hit $20.5 trillion by the time he’s finished with us.
AFGHANISTAN TROOPS ALL OUT BY 2014
“We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan. And I’ve set a timetable. We will have them all out of there by 2014,” Obama said in Boulder, Colo., in September 2012.
But: —the latest news out of Afghanistan suggests that Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai have closed in on a long-term security pact that envisions 10,000-16,000 U.S. and NATO troops staying in the country after the withdrawal of combat forces technically concludes at the end of 2014.
Yet another Obamapromise broken.
SYRIA CHEMICAL WEAPONS RED LINE
Obama drew the red line during an August 2012 press conference.
“We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that’s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons,”
“We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state level, jobs are going to be created.”
“We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, the location of so many of
the worst constitutional abuses in recent years.”
How about Obama’s ignoring laws that should instead be enforced, like the immigration laws? What about waivers granted from Obamacare to big businesses? To politically connected unions? To Congress? To people who work for Congress? Are those oath-breaking? How about continuing to support an Attorney General who was voted 255 to 67 to be in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over gunwalking documents?
What about consorting with known enemies of America like Rev. Jeremiah Wright or unrepentant America hating bomber William Ayres? Providing cover for such America haters shows a confused or a lack of moral ability.
Obama violated the constitution by making recess appointments while the Senate was in session.
What about the “Red Line” promise made on Sept. 4, 2013 in Stockholm about Syria’s chemical weapons?
Barack Obama has charisma and charm. What he lacks is a set of American values.
How many times must an oath be broken before it is obvious the President is not to be trusted? How many lies are needed to call a man an oath-breaker? How many times must the Constitution be broken before President Obama is held accountable for violating the Constitution?
Holding a public office is not a right because an election was won. It is a special privilege that requires following the rules and removal from such office for violating the conditions of the office is not a punishment but a necessity because when the pledge is broken the contract is void and the deal is off.
President Obama is the type of person the Constitution is supposed to stop.
