Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

UPDATE: Obama: The Louisiana Purchase helps the victims of the earthquake in…Hawaii?

UPDATES BELOW.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  What is this socialist tool talkin about?  Quoth The One in his interview with FNC:

OBAMA: I am certain that we’ve made sure, for example, that any burdens on states are alleviated, when it comes to what they’re going to have to chip in to make sure that we’re giving subsidies to small businesses, and subsidies to individuals, for example.

BAIER: So the Connecticut deal is still in?

OBAMA: So that’s not — that’s not going to be something that is going to be in this final package. I think the same is true on all of these provisions. I’ll give you some exceptions though. Something that was called a special deal was for Louisiana. It was said that there were billions — millions of dollars going to Louisiana, this was a special deal. Well, in fact, that provision, which I think should remain in, said that if a state has been affected by a natural catastrophe, that has created a special health care emergency in that state, they should get help. Louisiana, obviously, went through Katrina, and they’re still trying to deal with the enormous challenges that were faced because of that. (CROSS TALK) OBAMA: That also — I’m giving you an example of one that I consider important. It also affects Hawaii, which went through an earthquake. So that’s not just a Louisiana provision. That is a provision that affects every state that is going through a natural catastrophe. Now I have said that there are certain provisions, like this Nebraska one, that don’t make sense. And they needed to be out. And we have removed those.

First of all, it’s a friggin’ lie that “we have removed” the special provisions like the Cornhusker Kickback and Gator Aid.  They were vote buyoffs to get the Senate to pass ObamaCare, which it did…and now that very Senate bill is sitting in the House’s lap!  Now while B.O.’s proposal may have been to eliminate those vote buyoffs, that’s irrelevant, because his bill isn’t the one that the House is considering to cram down our throats.

Now, on to the part where I make fun of this Mensa scholar…

If he was talking about Haiti instead of Hawaii, then how in the Sam Hill does passing ObamaCare or using Landrieu’s vote buyoff help the people of Haiti?  I mean, unless Haiti is one of those 57 states I didn’t know about, this does jack squat for them.

If, however, he actually meant his “birth state” (and no, I’m not referring to Kenya, which I think is not the 57th state…yet), then Gateway Pundit finds a slight problem with his statement:

In 1868 there was a major earthquake in Hawaii that killed 77 people. In 1975 an earthquake in Hawaii killed 2 people.

Seriously…what in the blue Hades is this guy talking about???

Also, as Gateway Pundit mentions, B.O. said in this interview that “that provision, which I think should remain in, said that if a state has been affected by a natural catastrophe, that has created a special health care emergency in that state, they should get help.”  Yet another damnable lie.  Texas and Mississippi were states that were both affected by hurricanes (i.e. “natural catastrophes”) and declared to be major disaster areas…yet neither were covered by  this provision of which he speaks.  The provision refers to one state and one state alone: Louisiana.  And why not?  Louisiana was the only state along the Gulf coast who had a Senator ripe for a buyoff.  Sens. Cornyn and Hutchison (TX), as well as Wicker and Cochran (MS) were firm opponents on ObamaCare.  But not Landrieu.

Anywho, do you ever get the feeling that maybe, just maybe, our President doesn’t exactly adhere to the truth very often?

UPDATE (03/18/2010 – 2:30 PM): Reader C-Note (lurks, doesn’t comment) sent me an e-mail reminding me of the 2006 earthquake in Hawaii that registered a 6.7 on the Richter scale.  Since I’m not Dan Rather, I’m not going to pretend I’m not wrong.  However, if that’s what B.O. was talking about, he’s either wrong or lying about the Louisiana Purchase covering Hawaii.  See, the LA Purchase’s language says that a state where “every county or parish in the State warrant individual and public assistance or public assistance from the Federal Government under such Act” qualifies.  Not every county in HI received federal assistance, so the LA Purchase does not cover HI.

  1. Whenever Nobama speaks without his teleprompter it looks like a prime-time TV comedy hour!
    But I’m sure he’s giving 3000% effort?

  2. That interview was hilarious. Baier had O-Liar squirming like the serpent he is. He never actually answered any of the questions. Why people think that imbecile is so brilliant is beyond me.
