Who do you believe?: Senator Schumer, Obama or Obama



But here is what Obama claimed last night:

It also contains an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability, so that every American will be able to go online and see where and how we're spending every dime. What it does not contain, however, is a single pet project, not a single earmark, and it has been stripped of the projects members of both parties found most objectionable. . . .


Of course, last Friday Obama “also defended earmarks as inevitable in such a package.”

Here is a question: If the people really don't care, why did Obama deny them last night?

Who do I believe? None of them.

That is a neat trick, Martin, since they either say there is or there isn't pork in the bill.

I concur with your observation, Dr. Lott.

However, it is the chaos of the current administration, as well as differing interpretations of what constitutes pork that make me think.

If one is on the recieving end, of such handouts, is it pork, or just a thank you for a vote? Perchance it is prepayment for a vote that has yet to be cast?

BHO, as well as others, continually shift their positions, viewpoints, excuses and stories in order to adapt to public responses. Ergo, I believe none of what they say.

They ignore, deny, and refute the actual root cause of this current foul up. They place blame everywhere but where it belongs.

BHO is a liar. Schumer is a liar. Pelosi is a liar. They are all liars.

Occam's Razor, Dr. Lott. Upon the application of the known data, I choose neither. As I must, if I am to make an informed decision as to what is correct.

Let us all understand this:

1.Anyone who seeks accountability is of the "chattering class"

2.That only this implied "minority" cares what is in this bill

3.That this unsubstantiated “not caring” claim gives them warrant and license to do as they please with our money

4.That these politicians have decided what we care about and what we don’t care about

5.That Americans have a different definition of "tiny"

6.That Obama and other politicians now have LIED publicly declaring there was no pork when, in fact, there is
