What the President said- “But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. We can’t afford it. And I refuse to renew them again.”

What Rush said today- "He's going on the warpath to raise everybody's taxes."

Famous quote- Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.

We don't have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem!

Class Warfare serves no one. A better system would be a flat tax where everyone pays.
Ending Corporate Welfare would also lower the deficit.

There is nothing square about Rush except his clothes.

3 possibilities
A. He was just blabbering away, making things up, telling half truths and full blown lies. And preaching to his audience the usual what they want to hear dogma sans facts from the perspective of an overblown ego driven lunatic.
B. He's fallen off the wagon and back on oxycodone.
C. Both

He's public Enemy No 1 to your kind - but still on the air. I haven't listened to a radio for a couple of years, but didn't he have something that basically stated "PROVE Me wrong, there's a reward". So collect some money by doing same.

But I doubt that someone without the background to know who Charly was could handle that.

What obama said: I will close Guantanamo by the end of my first year in office.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32ePb4X6JNQ&feature=related

What he did: He did exactly what his predecessor did.

What he meant: I can say anything, do anything and even lie to the sheep that voted for me and they will come back for more and vote for me again anyway.

So what your saying is that the problem is bigger than a lie....it's that he had no clue that he couldn't actually do it?

Read the links to what happen. Though it may not fit your spin.

Read the links to what happen. Though it may not fit your spin.

I did...from the first link:

"Throughout Obama’s presidency, Attorney General Eric Holder has continued to promise the prison would close, but backed off earlier this month when he agreed to try the Sept. 11 terrorists in Guantanamo Bay, instead of New York City as he previously advocated for.
Holder has said what held up the closing of the terrorist prison was a slew of congressional restrictions. “We must face a simple truth: those restrictions are unlikely to be repealed in the immediate future,” he said, and that, “members of Congress have intervened and imposed restrictions blocking the Administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to trial in the United States.”

If he wanted to close it, he should have done so by January 2010, as he stated he would. Democrats controlled the house and senate for 2 years of his presidency....in which he basically had no such "congressional restrictions." They just didn't get around to it, kinda like the budget......

That's not my spin, those are facts.

Agree ! I said not long after he became president that he ( and the Mrs. ) had no idea what game he ( and she ) was holding cards in. Others on here said he was really smart. I'm not saying he is dumb in all areas but he misses on some of them. Somebody is telling him what to say and do. He is extremely good at playing his part which is why they chose him to play that part.

P.S Elmer Snerd was another of Edgar Bergan's "dummies" I believe. Elmer was a good match for one or two on this forum, just kidding.

Once again congress blocked the plan.
President takes office Jan 22, 2009
Notice the date in the article Dec. 23, 2010, less than one year after taking office. Congress had already blocked the plan by not funding it.

Do you have a link to the Limbaugh quote so I can read/listen to it myself? If you'll beg my pardon, your track record on this kind of stuff isn't the best (eg...the other day you claimed a one year old poll as being recent). Thanks.

Btw...true or false....if the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire everyone who pays federal income tax will pay more in federal income tax? Thanks again.

i'm surprise that this one fooled you. the whole prove me wrong/reward thing. it is impossible to prove wrong somebody's spin on truth such as the paraphrase/opinion that the op posted in the first post of this thread. rush does this to create credibility with people that want/need him to be right to feel good about themselves. when he comes up with his own ideas and quantifiable data and it's wrong, i'll go collect my reward. but he won't do that. he sits back and uses opinion to criticize what politicians do. you can't PROVE that wrong. even you can't do it, marv. you try everyday on POTUS.

He does this to create credibility with people that want/need him to be right to feel good about themselves. when he fails to keep his promises the morons that elected him still swoon over his every word. He sits back and uses the opinions of the dumbed down folks that elected him to swoon over himself, and blames all his failures on the GOP.and it's wrong, i haven't collected my free stuff yet but I'm sure it's coming even though he hasn't delivered yet and uses opinion to criticize what politicians do. you can't PROVE that wrong. even you can't do it, you try everyday on POTUS.

Fixed it for ya. :cool: So how does that HOPEium you're smoking taste, you got a buzz yet?

I must not be explaining myself very clearly, so let me try again.

- Obama made the statement that he would close Gitmo
- When he made that statement, he wasn't lying, he simply did not understand HE could not close Gitmo on his own authority
-Ergo, his declaration to close was made in ignorance of his need to get others on board.
- Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that the vote on the defense budget your story references was passed PRIOR to the 112th Congress taking office....in other words, still under Democratic control....inferring not only a lack of understanding of the process necessary to get Gitmo closed, but a lack of ability to leadership/impact with his own party fulfill his campaign pledge.
