Obama breaks a promise – again

by thoughtfulconservative

Sadly, Obama broke one of his promises again. As you can see, the SCHIP bill was posted Feb. 1 and signed Feb. 4.

Why is he doing this? John McCormick at The Weekly Standard has an opinion,

Why do I have the feeling that the White House’s pledge to implement the policy “soon” means “after we ram the trillion-dollar ‘stimulus’ bill through Congress”? Public opinion has now turned against the “stimulus” bill as it stands. Maybe Obama thinks the public will more easily swallow billions of dollars in pork and social welfare spending if they don’t have a chance to look at the text of the bill online. But breaking a promise about transparency on a more controversial measure like the “stimulus” will surely create problems of its own.

Maybe, maybe not. But with all the talk of urgency, one can bet that the stimulus bill, once passed won’t get the five day wait either.

Sticking with the breaking promises, the Senate Armed Services Committee Approves Lynn Nomination

The Senate Armed Services Committee “has voted in favor of William Lynn, a Raytheon lobbyist, to become the next deputy defense secretary,” the AP reports.

This was covered here.

  1. No to “stimulus” bill. Here’s why:
    Since Obama’s earnest drive to convince the nation to weaken its economic strength through redistribution as well as weaken its national defense, has confirmed the very threats to our Republic’s survival that the Constitution was designed to avert, it no longer is sustainable for the United States Supreme Court and Military Joint Chiefs to refrain from exercising WHAT IS THEIR ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO DEFEND THE NATION FROM UNLAWFUL USURPATION. The questions of Obama’s Kenyan birth and his father’s Kenyan/British citizenship (admitted on his own website) have been conflated by his sustained unwillingnes to supply his long form birth certificate now under seal, and compounded by his internet posting of a discredited ‘after-the-fact’ short form ‘certificate’. In the absence of these issues being acknowledged and addressed, IT IS MANIFEST THAT OBAMA REMAINS INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. Being a 14th Amendment ‘citizen’ is not sufficient. A ‘President’ MUST BE an Article 2 ‘natural born citizen’ AS DEFINED BY THE FRAMERS’ INTENT.

  2. All I can say, Ted, is “Wow.”

    Do you actually believe that stuff? You’re a lefty masquerading as a wingnut to discredit us, right?
