Why Obama Thinks Romney is Lying

Obama stunk up the stage, no one is questioning that.  Even Seth Meyers on Saturday Night Live had a hard time finding ways to take jabs at Romney’s debate performance.  That means Romney did something special in that first debate.  So what do you do when your opponent so completely mops the floor with you that your most loyal allies can’t even find a nice thing to say?  Accuse your opponent of lying.

In fact, Obama hasn’t just accused Romney of lying.  Obama has accused Romney of so completely abandoning his beliefs and principles that Obama didn’t even know how to respond.  The spin now is that Obama was so shocked by how far Romney would go to lie about his record that Obama was overcome with moral outrage and simply couldn’t get over it enough to respond or call him out.

That’s right, when Romney said he actually doesn’t want to cut taxes on the rich by $5 trillion and raise taxes on the poor and middle class to pay for it, Obama figured every American out there would know that was an outright lie.  When Romney said he wants a healthcare plan that is determined by the states but ensures that people with pre-existing conditions can get coverage, Obama figured he wouldn’t have to respond to such an obvious distortion of the truth.  Or perhaps Obama was so disgusted by Romney’s lies that he simply couldn’t stammer out a response.

Obviously that’s a bunch of baloney to try to excuse the worst debate performance since…well maybe ever.  Or is it?

Barack Obama is a pretty smart guy, but surely he tunes in to watch his friends in the mainstream media talk glowingly about him and attack Romney.  When the Tax Policy Center said that Romney’s tax plan was going to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for a tax break for the rich, Obama may have actually believed them.  When Chris Matthews and the left portray the Republican party as some sort of gathering of vampires seeking to suck the life-blood out of the poor and minorities, perhaps Obama began to actually think such wild leftist representations of Republicans must be accurate.

When Obama said that Romney wants to cut taxes by $5 trillion for the rich and raise taxes on the poor and middle class to pay for it, maybe Obama truly believed that was an honest attack.  When Obama, who himself cut $716 billion out of Medicare, talked about Romney taking away Medicare for seniors, maybe he thought the charges were accurate.  And since the debate, perhaps the leftist media has Obama convinced now that Romney would actually like to put Big Bird in the unemployment line.

Republicans really aren’t evil.  We don’t want to raise taxes on the poor.  We don’t want to do horrible things to people’s “lady parts” as one Obama internet ad suggested.  We don’t want to put blacks back in chains as Biden suggested.  Honestly, we don’t want to keep Hispanics out of the country or go to war with every country with a majority Muslim population.  Republicans are not racists by nature either.

If Obama doesn’t figure out that the other half of the country isn’t evil, he will look just as lost and bewildered in the next debate too.  And in the next debate, if Romney doesn’t admit to being a monster who wants to chain women to the kitchen sink or station troops at churches to stop gay weddings, I’m sure the Obama campaign will try to get more mileage out of the “Romney is a liar” argument to defend his next debate performance.

Obama Helps One Chinese Activist While a Billion Still Suffer

Bookmark and Share  The Obama administration had a hand  in assisting the blind Chinese lawyer- Chen Guangchen escape from the ‘motherland’ – China.  For Obama and crew the decision to help the self educated lawyer was a delicate one. After all, Mr Chen was under house arrest for the ‘crime’ of exposing the fact that communist officials in China actively sterilize people and force women to undergo late-term abortions. The problem for Obama was that if the US were to help, then the US would be taking a stand against China’s brutal regime.

The background is that Chen was under house arrest for ‘crimes against the state’- a euphamism for ‘telling the truth in China. While unconstitutional, the practice of  house arrest is quite common in China. The communist party, however, does not like to air their dirty laundry, as it were.

For the communists, a man like Chen was problematic, and needed to be stifled. But then again he was problematic for the US as well. How could the US leaders help such a person? How could Obama actually take a stand against the leaders of China?  Would it have been possible for Obama to do something as simple as say, “Hey Mr. communist leader, don’t you think you should slow down the abuse of your people?”

But of course Obama cannot or will not do this.

The reason is that in China the human offenses typically spring from members of the ruling communist party.  Calling into question such a thing as the sanctity of freedom and life is akin to an attack on the ruling class in the PRC.  Highlighting such abuses would cause the communists to ‘lose face’.

Another problem is Washington’s hypocritical stance on human rights abuses and China. Washington can castigate the Chinese and call for change, but in reality this is all bluster. For instance, how would Obama feel about decrying China’s abuses after his  cheerful meetings with Hu Jintao- aka the ‘Butcher’. Yes, Mr. Hu, China’s President and leader of the communist party obtained the moniker ‘the butcher’, for his  reign of terror on Tibet. Here is a quote from the book –Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama is Hastening America’s Decline and Ushering A Century of Chinese Domination-Decker and Triplett II

“Hu Jintao, the current general secretary of the Communist Party…the president of the People’s Republic, has a lot of Tibetan blood on his hands. In March 1989, Hu declared martial law and ordered PLA troops to fire on a crowd of peaceful protesters led by shaved-headed, Saffron-robed monks. As many as 700 innocents were killed for marching in what would be considered a normal assembly…in Washington, D.C. “

Would Washington lose credibility by decrying China’s deplorable abuse of its citizens while at the same time currying favor with a man known for ordering the death of innocent monks?

Perhaps I am selling Mr Obama short, for when confronted with a person such as Mr Hu, Obama knew that any discourse on helping mankind would fall on deaf ears.

Or maybe it is  poor statesmanship to call out the failings of a country in front of its leader, I am sure that Germany in the late 30’s would not have stood for such a thing.  But I digress….

The truth is that Obama and company would like to laud the fact that it was they who freed this one man from the terrors he had faced. And sure enough, that action was admirable. But my question is if that was enough.

It was recently reported that communist officials in China forced women in late term pregnancies to abort their unborn children. And this is only the tip of the icebergy. China regularly enslaves the mentally handicapped and forces them to work in brick kilns, while shackeled to machinery. The communists are known to harvest organs from live prisoners and religious practitioners. Aside from this, members of the commuinst party have been active in the buying and selling of stolen babies. But what should we expect from a country whose two Nobel Peace Prize winners, are either in exile or in a Chinese prison?

The question I have for Mr Obama and the  rest of us is – Was it enough to help that one man when there are still over one billion left behind?
