Why is Michelle Obama so tired?

Why is Michelle Obama so  tired?

Exclusive: Mychal Massie says fist lady 'doesn't give  a rat's tail' about her behavior


by Mychal Massie


Mychal Massie is chairman of the National Leadership  Network of Black Conservatives-Project 21 – a conservative black think tank  located in Washington, D.C. He was recognized as the 2008 Conservative Man of  the Year by the Conservative Party of Suffolk County, N.Y. He is a nationally  recognized political activist, pundit and columnist. He has appeared on Fox News  Channel, CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN, NBC, Comcast Cable and talk-radio programming  nationwide.


What on earth can Michelle Obama possibly be tired  from?


What has she done since her husband was elected that  gives her one reason to be tired? I know that flying, for the proletariat such  as myself, can be tiring and, more times than not, a genuine pain – but she  flies in presidential luxury, sans the president.  And the only checkin’ in  and full-body scan she goes through at an airport is when she looks at herself  in a mirror.  We, the taxpayers of this great nation, demand to know just what it is that has her royalness so worn out and tired, that  after just enjoying a lavish 17-day Hawaiian Christmas vacation  (that cost taxpayers $4 million), she  needs another vacation at one of the most exclusive (and anti-union) resorts in  the country.


It cannot be that she is overworked because, if the liberal Los Angeles Times is to be believed, between them, the Obamas have 454 White House aides, at a cost  to the taxpayers of more than $37 million annually – and that doesn’t include  recent pay raises. (See: “No Recession For Obama’s 454 White  House aides: They’ll make $37,121,463 this year”; Andrew Malcolm, July 5, 2011.)  And before you ask – yes, that is more than President and Mrs. Bush had, and I was one of the lone voices decrying the size and cost of  Laura Bush’s staff.


Could Ms. Obama still be suffering fatigue from the  weight of having kept secret, for two years, her extravagant Halloween costume  ball? Even though they used military families as a cover in  case it got out, the last thing she wanted the public to know was that, while  Americans were suffering in the depths of recession, she had the biggest players  in Hollywood doing an exclusive costume party just for herself and her  family.

Or perhaps it’s the lingering effects of taking her  mother and daughters to South Africa and Botswana, or the sheer  exhaustion of rushing out of Washington, four hours ahead of her husband, so she  wouldn’t have to share her presidential jet with him on the way to Martha’s  Vineyard for their annual beach break.

Then again, maybe she was exhausted from her personal  $50,000 underwear shopping spree with the queen of Qatar, at Agent Provocateur,  the store that bills itself as selling “the most erotic lingerie in the  world.” Realizing that you’re responsible for closing down  Madison Avenue can be tiring, and watching staff carry all those bags back to  her limousines … whew! – that would sure wear me out. And after  the tiring experience of picking out all of those exotic undies, what better  place to recover than an uber-posh Vail resort and the private home owned by  Paula and Jim Crown?

Or maybe she’s worn out from rolling around on the  floor to the delight of Ellen Degeneres, or making muscles on a daytime show, or  pulling on a rope on another show, or eating at all of the restaurants where she  loves to pig it up.


Then again, maybe Ms. Obama is just an arrogant,  high-minded person who doesn’t give a rat’s tail about propriety or how her  behavior looks to a suffering public because, after all, her husband claims the  economy is improving, and who are we going to believe – the reality of our  financial situation or her husband?


Michelle Obama can afford to live life large since  every dime she’s spending comes on the backs and sweat of others. Nothing, zip,  nada that she spends did she personally earn. And therein is the disgusting  elitism of a woman who forgets where she came from, and dares you to remind  her.

We are responsible for the billionaire life she lives,  and it’s time we started demanding that she be accountable to us. It’s time we  started confronting Obama at every press conference and/or speaking venue about  the behavior of his wife. He is spending hundreds of millions of our money,  flying around the country to raise a billion dollars for his campaign war chest,  and we’re paying $4 per gallon for fuel. We’ve lost our homes, our mortgages are  upside-down, our property taxes aren’t enough to cover the increasing cost of  infrastructure because of the drain of resources by illegal aliens, and all of  this is happening as the price of putting milk and cereal on our tables is  rising dramatically.

But why shouldn’t she be smiling?  For the first time in her adult life, she is proud of America – and why not? She  has tens of millions of peons paying for her very own private reparations – now  that’s enough to put a smile on any elitist’s face.

A Rough Sunday for Team  Obama

By Guy Benson 5/21/2012


The Sunday morning network chat shows typically distill and  explore the major political themes of the week, with Republicans and Democrats  grappling for narrative control.  This week's programs were no exception,  and suffice it to say that the Obama campaign didn't have a very productive  weekend.  Three of its surrogates strayed off message, handing the GOP a  series of golden talking points:

(1) Former top economic adviser Austin  Goolsbee admitted what we've known for some time: President Obama is the "undisputed Debt King."  Fox News  Sunday's Chris Wallace laid down the facts, and Goolsbee could do nothing  but stare the truth in its face:

Wallace: "The fact is, Mr. Goolsbee, that  under this president, the debt has increased by five trillion dollars, or almost  50 percent."

Goolsbee: "Look, I don't dispute that the  deficit has increased."

In an emailed statement to the media, the Romney campaign  chuckled that "its nice to see that the president's campaign isn't disputing the  facts, for once."  It's a backhanded compliment, of course, but I'm not  sure how much credit Goolsbee really deserves.  Acknowledging empirical  math shouldn't be a laudatory act; it should be  common practice.   Barack Obama has presided over an unprecedented (some might say "unpatriotic") bloating of the national debt and has  institutionalized trillion-dollar-plus deficits, rupturing his early pledge to  halve the annual deficit by now.  This reckless record of spending --  accompanied with unforgivable inaction on long term debt  solutions -- is one of Mitt Romney's top indictments of the president.   Goolsbee's frank admission thus affirms a primary Republican election year  message.

(2) In the wake of the Rev. Wright flap, David Axelrod was pressed  on CNN to confirm that Gov. Romney's faith will be out of bounds throughout the coming  campaign:

As religion becomes an ever-more significant issue on  the campaign trail, Mitt Romney's Mormonism will be off-limits as a subject for  the opposition, Obama campaign advisor David Axelrod said on Sunday. "We've said  that's not fair game," he said on CNN's State of the Union. When asked whether the campaign "repudiate[s] the idea that Mormonism  should be on the table" this election season, Axelrod insisted:  "absolutely." He added, however, that Romney should to come out  stronger against attacks on Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah  Wright.

Some Obama allies haven't gotten this message -- two elected Democrats have made inflammatory statements  about polygamy in recent weeks.  And as for Axelrod's gripe about Romney's  reaction to the Wright reports, I'm not sure what else he could have done to  satisfy Axe's repudiation thirst.   He came out and thoroughly rejected the hypothetical Wright  attacks within hours, to the chagrin of some conservatives.  I guess he has  to keep the gravy train chugging along somehow,  right?

(3) Finally, Democratic Newark Mayor Cory  Booker -- last seen participating in an Abbott and Costello routine with Chris  Christie -- appeared on Meet the Press and totally cut the legs out  from under Team Obama's Bain Capital demagoguery:


"If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've  done a lot to support businesses to grow businesses, and this [Obama strategy]  to me...I'm very uncomfortable with it."

In condemning The One's Bain strategy as "nauseating," Booker also made the point that  public pension funds invest with companies like Bain to help **noallow** strong  retirement funds, dealing another blow to the silly notion that only Romney and  his top deputies benefited from robust investment returns.  Recapping:  Conceding Republican's valid criticisms on deficits and debt, taking Mormonism  off the table, and praising Bain Capital's strong investment record.  What  does that leave for Democrats to run on?  Perhaps the Washington Post should start digging into how Romney treated his pet  goldfish in middle school.

UPDATE - Booker is back-tracking on his Bain defense, almost  certainly at the behest of Team O:

People are describing that has a "hostage  video."  Yeah, pretty close.  The RNC is circulating a "Stand with Cory" petition, just to rub it  in.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal asks the trenchant question in all of this: If Bain  just devoured and destroyed companies, why are people still lining up to do  business with them decades later?  Answer: Because the point of their  business model is to save and grow businesses -- and they're damn good at  it.

Obama's Five Trillion Dollar Lie

Economic Collapse ^ | May 25, 2012 | Staff


Why isn’t the U.S. economy in a depression right now? The number one reason is because the federal government has stolen more than five trillion dollars from future generations since Barack Obama was elected and has used that money to pump up our grossly inflated standard of living. Whether the federal government spends money wisely or foolishly, the truth is that the vast majority of it still ends up in the pockets of the American people who then use it to buy the things they need for their daily lives. If the U.S. government had not borrowed and spent an extra five trillion dollars that we did not have over the past several years, we would be in the middle of a rip-roaring economic depression right now. So any talk that Barack Obama is “improving the economy” is a total farce. It is a five trillion dollar lie. The reality is that Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress have been stealing trillions of dollars from future generations in order to make things tolerable in the present. If the federal government adopted a balanced budget next year, the debt-fueled prosperity that we are currently enjoying would start disappearing very rapidly and all hell would break loose in America.

At this point, the U.S. national debt is over 15.7 trillion dollars.

When Ronald Reagan took office it was less than a trillion dollars.

If you were to divide the national debt up equally, it would come to more than $50,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States.

So the share of the national debt for an average family of four would be about $200,000.

When the government borrows and spends money that it does not have, that increases the amount of dollars in circulation and it causes GDP to go up.

That is one of the reasons why our politicians like to borrow and spend money that we do not have. It makes the economic statistics look good. They can point to those economic statistics as a reason to send them back for another term.

This is a major flaw in our system. Most of our politicians do not care about how they are raping future generations financially. Most of them just care about getting elected again.

If you will notice carefully, neither Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama are promising to balance the budget any time soon. Like so many politicians in the past, they promise to do it “eventually”, but “eventually” never arrives.

According to a recent article in the Washington Times, Mitt Romney declared during a recent campaign appearance that he has no plans to balance the federal budget in his first year....

“My job is to get America back on track to have a balanced budget. Now I’m not going to cut $1 trillion in the first year” Why would he say that?

Why wouldn’t he want to balance the budget?

He went on to explain that....

“The reason,” he explained, “is taking a trillion dollars out of a $15 trillion economy would cause our economy to shrink [and] would put a lot of people out of work.” Romney is right about this. Taking a trillion dollars out of a 15 trillion dollar economy would plunge us into an economic nightmare.

And that would make him look bad.

Of course if Obama wins the election we can just expect more of the same from him as well.

For example, just check out what White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew had to say about balancing the budget recently....

“The time for austerity is not today,” Lew told NBC News “Meet the Press.” “If we were to put in austerity measures right now, it would take the economy in the wrong way.” Why is the time for austerity not today?

It is because the 2012 election is coming up and Obama wants the economic statistics to look good.

But can you blame our politicians for being cowardly?

Just look at what is happening in Greece. After several years of austerity they are in the midst of a full-blown economic depression and they still have not balanced their budget.

Do we want to end up like Greece?

Most Americans do not realize this, but the U.S. already has more government debt per capita than Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland or Spain.

So why haven’t we collapsed yet?

Well, because we continue to borrow larger and larger amounts of money.

It took from the founding of America until 1995 for the federal government to accumulate 5 trillion dollars of debt.

Under Obama, we have accumulated more than 5 trillion dollars of new debt in just over 3 years.

Amazingly, Obama has added more to the national debt than George W. Bush did during his entire 8 year term.

And let there be no mistake - George W. Bush was a wild spender. A fiscal conservative he most certainly was not.

But Barack Obama does not seem troubled by any of this.

Barack Obama is prancing about the countryside touting his great “economic plan”, but the truth is that the only reason the economy has not totally collapsed is because he is stealing 150 million dollars an hour from our children and our grandchildren.

Sadly, most Americans don’t understand that the current level of prosperity that we are enjoying is a grand illusion. Most Americans still expect things to return to the way that they used to be, and they are increasingly becoming angry that it is taking so long to get back there.

In fact, a whole host of recent surveys have shown that Americans are very dissatisfied with the direction the economy is heading in....

Four recent surveys have found that on average only 28% of Americans are satisfied with the condition of the country, while 70% are dissatisfied. Three recent surveys have found that between 69% and 83% of Americans believe that the country is still in recession (it isn’t), and only half believe that a recovery is under way. What they don’t realize is that if we were not massively ripping off our kids and our grandkids things would be much, much worse.

Thomas Jefferson understood that government borrowing is essentially the same as theft from future generations.

He once made the following statement....

And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale. What we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is so immoral that it is hard to put into words.

We are running up trillions upon trillions of dollars of debt in their name just so that our lives can be more comfortable right now.

How could we be so selfish?

The sad thing is that even with all of this reckless spending our economy is still not in great shape.

In fact, the middle class continues to shrink at an alarming rate. The following are just a few statistics from a recent article I did about this phenomenon....

-Today, approximately 48 percent of all Americans are currently either considered to be “low income” or are living in poverty.

-Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made up approximately 10 percent of all salaries and wages. In the year 2000, social welfare benefits made up approximately 21 percent of all salaries and wages. Today, social welfare benefits make up approximately 35 percent of all salaries and wages.

-The United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does.

-Every year now, we see millions of Americans fall out of the middle class. In 2010, 2.6 million more Americans descended into poverty. That was the largest increase that we have seen since the U.S. government began keeping statistics on this back in 1959.

-At this point, approximately 22 percent of all American children are living in poverty.

-When Barack Obama took office, there were 32 million Americans on food stamps. Now, there are more than 46 million Americans on food stamps.

So how much worse would things be if a trillion dollars of federal spending was suddenly removed from the economy?

Are you starting to get the picture?

As bad as things are right now, they are about to get a whole lot worse.

So why can’t we just keep on borrowing and spending forever?

Well, just like Greece found out, debt always catches up with you eventually.

During fiscal 2011, the U.S. government spent over 454 billion dollars just on interest on the national debt.

But just like we are seeing in Europe, if confidence in U.S. government debt starts to disappear the U.S. government could end up facing much higher interest rates to borrow money.

If the average rate on U.S. government debt only rose to 7 percent (in the past it has actually been much higher than that), then the U.S. government would be spending about 1.1 trillion dollars a year just on interest on the national debt.

During fiscal year 2011, the U.S. government spent 3.7 trillion dollars but it only brought in about 2.4 trillion dollars.

So if we were spending 1.1 trillion dollars just on interest, that would be close to half of all the revenue the federal government brings in.

Right now, the Federal Reserve is manipulating the system in a desperate attempt to keep interest rates down. During 2011, the Federal Reserve bought up approximately 61 percent of all government debt issued by the U.S. Treasury Department.

But most Americans have no idea how fragile our financial system is.

Most Americans just assume that we will always be the greatest economy on the planet and that there is nothing to be worried about.

Sadly, one way or another this debt bubble is going to burst and then our debt-fueled false prosperity is going to disappear.

Most Americans are not going to understand what is happening and they are going to go absolutely nuts.

The Red Side of Life ^ | 6/3/12 |  RedInNewYork

"The darkest  places in hell are reserved for those who    maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis"   Dante  Alighieri


“The  Fountainhead” is to “Atlas Shrugged” what “Animal Farm” is to “1984.” Just like “Animal Farm” is not about farming, “Fountainhead” is not  about architecture – it is about socialist ascent.

While “Atlas Shrugged” is all the rage these  days – and appropriately so – I strongly suggest that anyone who is truly  interested in defeating Obama in November read “The Fountainhead,” because it  subtly lays bare the Obama playbook.
However, at some points, subtlety gives way to blunt  frankness – the gloating revolutionary. In this case Ellsworth Toohey, the  socialist villain, spells out several ways of accomplishing a socialist  takeover. I urge you to read this carefully – I  will reproduce his words, in relevant part, in a manner that constitutes “fair  use.” If you read and understand these points, you will know – in your own way – what you can do to defeat Obama and socialism in  general.
From “The  Fountainhead”:
If you learn how to rule one single man’s  soul, you can get the rest of mankind. It’s  the soul, Peter, the soul. Not whips or swords or fire or guns. That’s  why the Caesars, the Attilas, the Napoleons were fools and did not last. We will. The soul, Peter, is that which can’t be ruled.  It must be broken. Drive a wedge in, get your fingers on it—and the man is  yours. You won’t need a whip—he’ll bring it to you and ask  to be whipped. Set him in reverse—and his own mechanism will do your work for  you. Use him against himself. Want to know how it’s  done?
There are many  ways. Here’s one.
Make man feel small. Make him  feel guilty. Kill his aspiration and his integrity. That’s  difficult. The worst among you gropes for an ideal  in his own twisted way. Kill integrity by internal corruption.Use it against itself. Direct it toward a goal destructive of all  integrity. Preach selflessness. Tell man that he must  live for others. Tell men that altruism is the ideal. Not a single one of them  has ever achieved it and not a single one ever will. His every living instinct  screams against it. But don’t you see what you accomplish? Man realizes that he’s incapable of what he’s accepted as the  noblest virtue—and it gives him a sense of guilt, of sin, of his own basic  unworthiness. Since the supreme ideal is beyond his grasp, he gives up  eventually all ideals, all aspiration, all sense of his personal value. He feels  himself obliged to preach what he can’t practice. But one can’t be good halfway  or honest approximately. To preserve one’s integrity is a hard  battle. Why preserve that which  one knows to be corrupt already? His soul gives up its self-respect. You’ve got  him. He’ll obey. He’ll be glad to obey—because he can’t trust himself, he feels  uncertain, he feels unclean. That’s one way.
Saul     Alinsky:
Lest we   forget at least and over-the shoulder
acknowledegment to the very first radical:  from all
our   legends, mythology, and history (and who is to
know  where mythology leaves off and history begins-
or which  is  which), the first radical knwon to man
who rebelled against the establishment and did  it
so  effectivelly that he at least won his own kingdom
Here’s another.
Kill man’s sense of values. Kill his  capacity to recognize greatness or to achieve it. Great men can’t be ruled. We  don’t want any great men. Don’t deny the conception of greatness. Destroy it  from within. The great is the rare, the difficult, the exceptional. Set  up standards of achievement open to all, to the least, to the most inept—and you  stop the impetus to effort in all men, great or small. You stop all incentive to  improvement, to excellence, to perfection... Don’t set out to raze all  shrines—you’ll frighten men. Enshrine mediocrity—and the  shrines are razed.
Then there’s another way.
Kill by laughter. Laughter is an instrument of human joy.  Learn to use it as a weapon of destruction. Turn it into a sneer. It’s simple.  Tell them to laugh at everything. Tell them that a sense of humor is an  unlimited virtue. Don’t let anything remain sacred in a man’s soul—and  his soul won’t be sacred to him. Kill reverence and you’ve killed the hero in  man. One doesn’t reverence with a giggle. He’ll obey and he’ll set no limits to  his obedience—anything goes—nothing is too serious.

Here’s another way.
This is most important. Don’t allow men to be happy. Happiness is self-contained and  self-sufficient. Happy men have no time and no use for you. Happy men are free  men. So kill their joy in living. Take away from them whatever is dear or  important to them. Never let them have what they want. Make them feel that the  mere fact of a personal desire is evil. Bring them to a state where saying ‘I  want’ is no longer a natural right, but a shameful admission. Altruism is of  great help in this. Unhappy men will come to you. They’ll need you. They’ll come for consolation, for support, for escape.  Nature allows no vacuum. Empty man’s soul—and the space is yours to fill. I  don’t see why you should look so shocked, Peter.
This is the oldest one of all. Look back at history.  Look at any great system of ethics, from the Orient up. Didn’t they all preach  the sacrifice of personal joy? Under all the complications of verbiage, haven’t  they all had a single leitmotif: sacrifice, renunciation, self-denial? Haven’t  you been able to catch their theme song—‘Give up, give up, give up, give up’? Look at the moral atmosphere of today.
Everything enjoyable, from  cigarettes to sx to ambition to the profit motive, is considered depraved or  sinful. Just prove that a thing makes men happy—and you’ve damned  it. That’s how far we’ve come. We’ve tied happiness to guilt.  And we’ve got mankind by the throat. Throw your first-born into a sacrificial  furnace—lie on a bed of nails—go into the desert to mortify the flesh—don’t  dance—don’t go to the movies on Sunday—don’t try to get rich—don’t smoke—don’t  drink. It’s all the same line. The great line. Fools think that taboos of this  nature are just nonsense. Something left over, old-fashioned. But  there’s always a purpose in nonsense. Don’t bother to examine a folly—ask  yourself only what it accomplishes. Every system of ethics that preached  sacrifice grew into a world power and ruled millions of  men.
Of course, you must dress it  up.
You must tell people that  they’ll achieve a superior kind of happiness by giving up everything that makes  them happy. You don’t have to be too clear about it. Use big vague words. ‘Universal Harmony’—‘Eternal Spirit’—‘Divine Purpose’  —‘Nirvana’—‘Paradise’—‘Racial Supremacy’—‘The Dictatorship of the  Proletariat.’
Internal corruption. That’s  the oldest one of all.
The farce has been going on for centuries and men still fall  for it. Yet the test should be so simple: just listen to any prophet and  if you hear him speak of sacrifice—run. Run faster than from a  plague. It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone  collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being  served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters.  And intends to be the master. But if ever you hear a man  telling you that you must be happy, that it’s your natural right, that your  first duty is to yourself—that will be the man who’s not after your soul. That  will be the man who has nothing to gain from you. But let him come and you’ll  scream your empty heads off, howling that he’s a selfish monster.So the racket is safe for many, many centuries. But here you might have  noticed something. I said, ‘It stands to reason.’ Do you  see?
Men have a weapon against you.  Reason.
So you must be very sure to take it away from them. Cut the  props from under it. But be careful. Don’t deny outright. Never deny anything  outright, you give your hand away. Don’t say reason is evil—though some have  gone that far and with astonishing success. Just say that reason is limited.  That there’s something above it. What? You don’t have to be too clear about it  either. The field’s inexhaustible. ‘Instinct’—‘Feeling’—‘Revelation’—‘Divine  Intuition’—‘Dialectic Materialism.’ If you get caught at some crucial point and  somebody tells you that your doctrine doesn’t make sense—you’re ready for him.  You tell him that there’s something above sense. That here he must not try to  think, he must feel. He must believe. Suspend reason and you play it deuces  wild. Anything goes in any manner you wish whenever you need it. You’ve got him. Can you rule a thinking man? We don’t want any thinking  men.

BY David Limbaugh

My newly released book, “The  Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic,” picks  up where my previous book “Crimes Against  Liberty” left off, chronicling President Obama’s record  since mid-2010, and it’s not pretty.

I firmly believe that Obama is heading this nation toward  financial catastrophe, is greatly undermining our national defenses, the  Constitution and the rule of law, is severely damaging our energy industry and  our energy independence, is dangerously expanding government and smothering the  private sector and small and large businesses, and is polarizing this nation in  a way that we haven’t seen in many decades, along racial, gender and economic  lines.

In wholesale breach of his 2008 campaign themes, he is zapping  America of its optimism and hope, replacing those with despair and malaise. He  is using his bully pulpit to turn the American dream on its head, demonizing  success and glorifying government dependency.

Rep. Paul Ryan has been warning for several years that America  is in deep financial trouble, primarily because of our runaway entitlements,  which account for almost $100 trillion of unfunded liabilities. Experts whom he  has consulted warn that we can’t indefinitely defer this problem, that we have a  window of perhaps two or three years to restructure them and return to a path of  solvency.

You should notice that no one has really disputed Ryan’s  assertion, suggesting it is hyperbole or sensationalism. Treasury Secretary  Timothy Geithner and Office of Management and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients  have had their chance, in congressional testimony, to refute Ryan’s claims. But  they can’t — and don’t.

Yet what do they and the president they serve do about this  imminent national train wreck? Absolutely nothing. President Obama’s Democratic  majority in the Senate has not submitted a budget for well over 1,100 days.  Obama has offered no plan to restructure entitlements and has even rejected his  own cynically formed bipartisan deficit commission.

When Ryan questioned Geithner about Obama’s budget — for both  its one-year and its 10-year projections — Ryan extracted an admission from  Geithner that the administration has presented no plan beyond 10 years. Its  current plan is merely to stabilize the growth of the deficit and kick the  long-term problem down the road.

In my book, I include the pertinent exchange between Ryan and  Geithner, and Ryan is persistent in pointing out that even if Obama’s budget  purports to put a temporary bandage on the growth of the deficit, the deficit  begins to skyrocket again after 10 years.


Geithner admits that and simply says that the administration  doesn’t like Ryan’s plan because it is too hard on middle-income earners and  seniors. The administration continues to say Ryan’s plan would destroy  Medicare.

These are all lies. Ryan’s plan specifically would preserve  Medicare while bringing it into solvency. He especially and expressly protects  seniors, and his plan would help lower- and middle-income groups more than it  would higher-income earners. If Obama and Geithner don’t like Ryan’s plan, then  why haven’t they ever offered their own blueprint for restructuring  entitlements, which is imperative if we are to save this nation from  bankruptcy.

The dirty little secret — and it’s not really a secret — is  that Obama’s budget doesn’t put a bandage on spending the next 10 years, either.  He told us he wouldn’t add a dime to the national debt, but his own projections  show he will add more than $7 trillion over the next decade, and the  Congressional Budget Office scores it as closer to $9.5 trillion, which means  his deficits will average almost $1 trillion per year — during the period he and  Geithner claim they are stabilizing our national finances. Can you believe  this?

In the book, I also go into great detail about how Obama is  fundamentally changing our national defenses and readiness, how we are  downscaling our conventional and nuclear forces while other nations — especially  Russia and China — are ramping theirs up and terrorists and the rogue nations  they support are feverishly pursuing weapons of mass destruction.

I can’t begin to adequately describe my new book in a column,  but it suffices to say that it is an encyclopedic account of Obama’s war on  America that includes some 400 pages and 1,300 footnotes. My goal was to leave  no stone unturned in thoroughly and comprehensively documenting Obama’s abuses  and misdeeds.

The book covers the gamut, including Obama’s wars on our  economy, national defenses, values, religious liberty, businesses and  guns.

You may think you know almost everything Obama has done the  past few years, but I guarantee you that the cumulative force of his actions  related in my book will nevertheless astound you and most likely make your blood  boil.

My hope is that in some way, this book contributes to an  awareness in the electorate of just how important it is that we defeat this man  in November. Our nation’s future greatness and our children’s future depend on  it.
