Obama Believes In A ‘Fact-Based’ America

From The Hill:

Obama mocks Perry, Republican debates

By Sam Youngman – 09/26/11

President Obama broadened his attack on Republicans Sunday night, firing an indirect shot at Texas Gov. Rick Perry and condemning audience members at recent Republican debates.

At a fundraiser in San Jose, Calif., Obama said that some in the audience might be former Republicans "but are puzzled by what’s happening to that party," and voters should back him if they believe in a "fact-based" America.

You know, ‘facts.’ Like the ‘fact’ that millionaires pay less taxes than their secretaries. Like the ‘fact’ that the stimulus has saved or created millions of jobs. Like the fact that ‘the rich’ don’t pay their ‘fair share.’ Like the ‘fact’ of man-made global warming. Like the ‘fact’ that Obama-Care will lower healthcare costs.

"I mean has anybody been watching the debates lately?" Obama said. "You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change.["]

Because there were never wildfires in Texas before man-made global warming. (Still, it was kind of Mr. Obama to finally recognize that there have been fires in Texas, however indirectly.)

"It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay."

Needless to say, neither of these things happened in the way Mr. Obama is describing them. But you can see how important ‘facts’ are to him.

Of course this is more of Mr. Obama’s new civil tone. More of his ‘Civility War’ on the Republicans and half the country.

The remarks represent some of the most direct and combative for Obama so far as he has struck out on the campaign trail in earnest following the July debt-ceiling debate and the August break.

Obama continued his critique of Republicans, saying of the boos in the audience at recent GOP debates: "That’s not reflective of who we are."

"This is a choice about the fundamental direction of our country," the president said. "2008 was an important direction. 2012 is a more important election."

Well, Obama is right about this. Though, we are surprised to hear him actually admit it.

If we want to keep going in the same direction we have gone since 2008, we should vote for Obama and the rest of the Democrats. But if we want to turn the country around, we should vote for someone else. Anybody else.

It’s really that simple.

    I’ll say it first – Obama wouldn’t know a ‘fact’ if it walked up and biatch-slapped him

      It’s more than that gbj.

      People like him don’t even accept the concept of truth. They are so overwhelmingly arrogant that they believe that their own opinions are the only ideas that count.

      It’s probably the primary reason that Obamy can lie effortlessly about anything, even if he said the exact opposite thing with the prior breath. I’m 100% certain that he could pass a lie detector test, just like any hard-core psychopath.

    • untrainable says:

      Obama believes in facts the way Dracula believes in sunlight. He knows there are facts, but he doesn’t want to see them or have them anywhere that he might be exposed to them because they might mean his end.

      Pro- that’s so mean … BECAUSE IT’S TRUE

    What we have here…..is ‘failure to communicate’. Or, more succinctly, reinvention of the lie. By standing there, and laying out words that appear to make sense. Once again, on the first blush and emotional template, they might to the non-thinking person. The words appeal to the gut but fail to make it to the brain, or are processed by a brain incapable of separating the emotional from the rational. Additionally, from the logical.

    His arguments, such as they can be called, seldom hold up to any real scrutiny but appeal to the masses in the sense of the “tent revival kind” of “thinking”. But, then, this is the kind of whirlwind anger that the KKK used to fester and encourage when they would meet, burn a cross, then go find someone they could lynch. And, of course, the MSM doesn’t call them out for it.

    But the thought experiment is: Let’s see a stoic, fact-based revival meeting in front of the Congressional White Caucus and see Al Sharpton’s and Jesse Jackson’s heads explode. Oh, wait, there is no CWC? Wellllll now…..where’s the fairness in that? Hmmmmmm? Equal? Or superior? Or, I’ll go you one better? SEGREGATED!

    What’s that? Oh, you say segregation is good because it allows you to function without the interference of white-tainted opinion and you can function unfettered and hamstrung? Gee, that’s what the segregationists used to say about their version of it, when it came to water-fountains and restaurants and buses. So, you’re saying your version of segregation is better than theirs? Oh, excuse me. Well, please explain to me why that’s so. I’ll wait. I have time.

    Bachmann implies that HPV vaccine might cause mental retardation —> MEDIA FIRE STORM

    The freaking President of the United State says global warming is responsible for wild fires —-> crickets…

    Obama is confusing “facts” and “fads”. Just because something is currently popular doesn’t mean it is valid. Obama should know that by personal experience. The majority of climate scientists who depend on government funding may be convinced of the extreme danger of man-made global warming, but that doesn’t make it a fact. The vast majority of Madoff investors were convinced that Bernie was the best investment advisor in the world right up to the moment he confessed to being a fraud. Not too long ago there was a consensus of Americans convinced that Hope and Change were real, but we all know how that turned out.

    “It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay.”

    Did Obama make a grammer error going from singular to plural?
    Or is Obama saying Service members in Iraq are all gay?
    Or is Obama saying that everyone who booed an individual were all gay?

    ‘One thing’ is for sure. Dropping the teleprompter has led to Obama sounding more and more like Rev Wright. In his 1994 book he even mentions the two infamous preachers he followed saying Jews caused
    aids. To pretend he had no idea is a lie. He’d buy that call call magazine when it had headlines White woman says whites are from the devil. He pondered if minorities would buy one type of toothpaste.
    ‘One things’ for sure. Obama now knows he could manufacture his own brand toothpaste and get rich.
    Even Geraldo Reviera said something about Obama’s smile was enough for him to like the guy.
