Obama’s ‘You’re-Responsible-For-My-Failed-Policies’ SOTU Speech

Obamacare has proved so disastrous to President Barack Obama that he’s going to begin the New Year by shooting political nails into his head.

He’ll try to distract the public from his painful Obamacare takeover by doing something even more painful — showing how he has mismanaged the economy and left 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed amid a Wall Street boom.


Of course, in the run-up to the 2014 election, he’ll try to blame his mismanagement on the GOP’s post-2010, partly-effective opposition to his post-2008 regulations and policies.

The daring “you’re-responsible-for-my-failed-policies” strategy, however, depends utterly on cooperation from the establishment media. So it is being pitched as a noble campaign against unfairness, or “economic inequality.”

“I believe this is the defining challenge of our time,” Obama declared in a December speech, which was delivered while Obamcare sank his poll ratings below 40 percent. “It drives everything I do in this office,” he announced Dec. 4, two week before he jetted off for a two week golfing vacation in Hawaii.

“There is no greater challenge this country has than income inequality, and we must do something about it,” Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid also said in December.

The “something” Obama and Reid are offering consists of two small steps.

The first supposed fix is an $25 billion extension of unemployment benefits for people who have been jobless for at lest six months. The second supposed fix is a boost in the national minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour.

Obama doesn’t have much else to distract Americans before they go to the polls and — if current polls were to hold steady — elect GOP majorities in the House and the Senate.

Obamacare has delivered commercial health-care policies to 2 million customers out of a population of 310 million, but also cancelled policies held by 5 million Americans. The network is expected to spur more public opposition in 2014 as Americans recognize the limits on their increasingly expensive Obama-approved insurance policies.

Foreign policy doesn’t bear mentioning. Al-Qaida is overrunning cities in Iraq that were guarded until Obama pulled U.S. forces out a more peaceful Iraq in 2010. The Arab world is sucked into the merciless civil war in Syria, and the supposed nuclear deal with Iran has stalled.

Immigration policies could spur increased Latino turnout if Democrats can paint the GOP as racist for opposing the Senate’s very unpopular immigration bill that would double the inflow of immigrants and guest workers into a stalled economy.

But economic inequality is also a tough sell when Obama has been in the White House for five years, and the Democrats have controlled the Senate on each and every day of his tenure.

He’s overseen the “Quantitative Easing” policy that spiked Wall Street stocks owned by wealthy Americans, and touted the various economic and immigration policies that have frozen poorer Americans’ income.

“Top 1 percent incomes grew by 31.4 percent while bottom 99 percent incomes grew only by 0.4 percent from 2009 to 2012,” said a September report by Emmanuel Saez, a left-wing economist at the University of California’s Berkeley campus.

Obama’s June 2012 mini amnesty, dubbed the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” got Latino votes in 2012 by providing work permits for at least 567,000 illegal immigrants.

He’s even backed the Senate’s ambitious immigration rewrite, which would exacerbate the income gap. A June study by the Congressional Budget Office said the bill would reduce average income for a decade, and boost investors’ wealth: “The rate of return on capital would be higher [than for labor] under the legislation than under current law throughout the next two decades,” said the CBO report.

To focus the media and the public on income inequality, Obama and Reid will immediately push for an extension to unemployment insurance, and for an increase to the minimum wage, partly because both proposals score well in polls. source – Daily Caller

And Obama and Reid will succeed with their plan, and the Dems will keep the Senate in November. In more pressing news, We are now two minutes closer to the rapture than we were we I began typing this. Obama and Reid are looking forward tot he rapture as well; Once Christians are out of the “way”, the Dems will hold a vast majority of every branch of everything. Nothing will be in their way. For a couple election cycles anyways . . . .

January 7, 2014 12:48 am

What you smok’n Corey??

January 7, 2014 12:51 am

What part of what I typed sounds crazy to you?

January 7, 2014 11:40 am


In your statement you say Obama and Reid are looking forward to the rapture as well.

I am almost positive they don’t have a clue what the rapture is. The rapture is saved for the church. For clarity for you, the Church are those who are born-again believers. Got that??

January 7, 2014 3:56 pm

Corey’s point, I think, is that the BO/Reid crowd would love to have Christians out of the way because we get in the way of their agenda. I agree. That is one of the reasons I tend toward thinking the Rapture is real and will be pre-trib. We stand in the way of Satan’s agenda.

January 7, 2014 4:04 pm

How do you know what Obama knows? I know very well what the rapture is and who actually belongs to the church. As Hope states below, satan is hard at work, even here on this website. Few here also work to hamper God’s work. Your attitude needs to be adjusted. I pray that God changes it.

January 7, 2014 12:00 am

******* LOL

January 7, 2014 12:47 am

Hear ye, hear ye!!!

Obama never had any intentions of being a “statesman president.”

He came into office with an agenda, and he is going about his plan (agenda 21) on target.

His goal: Destroy The American Foundation

Any disputes from you guys??

A satanic group unveiled designs Monday for a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan it wants to put at the Oklahoma state Capitol, where a Ten Commandments monument was placed in 2012.

January 7, 2014 12:42 pm

@Ron, just shaking my head in unbelief! What next? I hate to think!!! :-( Does anyone know how to put a rolling my eyes face on here? How do I do that???

January 7, 2014 2:36 pm

Simply just :ROLL: but lowercase

January 7, 2014 2:37 pm

Yes it works!

Yeee Haaa!!!! Thanks I really needed this one!!!!

January 7, 2014 6:52 am

I think it is a good idea for conservatives, conservative Christians, etc., to watch a lot more football in the new year. You know, bread and circuses. That seems to be a big topic on ‘conservative’ talk radio as of late. Obama is fixated on destroying this nation. Republicans and conservatives are fixated on football.

January 7, 2014 8:01 am

To Ron:
I want to say that you have displayed such gross and repunant behavior towards me and anyone who disagrees with you. Everytime I post, you have said that I am not Marie but someone else. You know very well that I am Marie and that I have a very sick husband for whom everyone on here has been praying for. You have called me names such as Russian, gay that my husband is my wife, etc. You and your buddies. I am sure that if you were very ill you would not appreciate it if someone attacked your wife and called you yourself a wife and called you gay. Unfortuately, I lowered myself to your level and responded back to you in the same manner that you attacked me, but I never insulted your wife nor your sexuality. I have called you a liar for the things you say.
I apologize to everyone as a Christian woman for allowing myself to respond in an unChristian like manner to Ron’s insane insults and accusation towards me. I could have ignored them but did not. My mistake and my sin. I apologize for that and any offense it may have caused to… Read more »

January 7, 2014 10:26 am

God bless you Marie, your public apology
tells me how sincere you are. I hope you
keep posting, I enjoy reading your posts
as with others on this site. I will also pray
for your husband.

Kindest regards mike.

January 7, 2014 10:33 am

Thank you Mike,
I appreciate your gracious and kind response and I thank you for your prayers for my husband.


January 7, 2014 11:26 am

Marie you told me to shut up, so I asked you if you was Russian because here we have freedom of speak. Now, who insulted who. Tell you husband to post in his name not yours. You are a vindictive person bent on running me off. You think you are cleaver, Larue , but I see you! You make to many mistakes to hide. Your flaw is your aggressiveness. Not to mention you typing mistakes and style. I know your wife’s name Steve. It’s Maria. It’s really clever how you used her email to deceive you own friends. Is Joe you son or brother in law.

January 7, 2014 11:35 am

I would not respond to this ugliness except to say I believe Maries hsbnd did leave his name.

Teresa B. have some backbone in your life. You know we pray our hearts out for Marie’s husband when he went to surgery just a way back. How can you not defend womanhood? How can you allow Ron Murphy insult a woman, as Marie, stating she’s gay? Does that show you that Ron’s, a loving Christian or a Satanic mean-spirited person? Would any of your Church members of your church, would allow Ron to speak to a woman in this fashion?

January 7, 2014 12:35 pm

Teresa B. How can you allow Ron to insult a war veteran as Joseph, your husband is a Veteran and retired military, how does he feel when someone insult a war veteran? That insulting the USA? Do not you respect the veterans?

January 7, 2014 12:53 pm

@STL, I have been GREATLY insulted by some of the same men on here also. To the point, I had to even leave here for a while, and spent a whole night not sleeping because of their vile comments. And STL you also said some pretty vile things to me! Please don’t forget that! So don’t come down on Ron, as your just as guilty. I have chosen to forgive him and you and all the rest. Then I dropped it. If we truly forgive, we drop the subject, unless one needs reminding of that which he seems to criticize other of…LOL You know I love you brother, but please don’t continue in the strife stirring!!! :-(

January 7, 2014 3:04 pm

Teresa, what does that prove?

January 9, 2014 10:51 am

what does what prove Ron? That he signed a name which you said was not there? That’s all I was saying.

January 7, 2014 12:01 pm

Well if that aint the pot calling the kettle black.

January 7, 2014 12:42 pm

John Jr: your still in the military, do we stand for Honor and Respect of our war veterans that served our country, in the time of war. We did it for our Country and our belief in God. But Ron Murphy feels he can insult war veterans. And Marie’s husband, is very disable with strokes and heart attacks, are you going to allow this idoit, Ron Murphy to insult Marie’s husband calling him GAY?

January 7, 2014 2:19 pm

This murphy guy is a joke. He’s illiterate and a ignorant babbler. I doubt he would be so bold saying that stuff at veterans rally or a VFW.

January 7, 2014 2:55 pm

Asking some one if the are gay or if they are STL is not calling someone Gay! I don’t call names to individuals and if I do I say it right out” you are gay” or “you are a liar”. You people can revile me all you want for taking up for myself and others, call me prideful, false prophet, satan, a liar, hypocrite, joke, idiot, fool, or what ever your choice words are. I’m not here to argue I’m here to teach if it offends you then revile on. All our paydays are coming we will all get what is coming to us God’s said He will repay. I’m get mine and you will get yours. I hope you do well!

January 7, 2014 12:19 pm

Ron: your full of crap and you believe we have had the freedom of free speech? There is nothing free about our freedoms, you need to go back to school, oh yes, your a Hillbilly! Those boys in the Virginian mountains. Just to create a bill to vote on, in our Congress, you have to pad the pockets of the lobbist, so its not free! And how many time did Brenda post in your name, so we did not know who was posting to us, your a fool! Just a mean-spirited person to attack a defenseless woman, you should be ashame of your self?

Now we are seeing the true side on you Ron, trying to call someone that there gay, that comes from the Devil, so we know who your God is, he’s Satan!

January 7, 2014 12:32 pm

Ron Murphy: Its not surprising to anyone, how stupid you are? People can see the difference how we voice our comments to each other, but since you have a grade-school education, we can see your not too smart in life. Your just trying your black heart out, to get Marie, to leave this web site, so you will only have to deal with STL, but Marie, is not that weak after all, she has Jesus Christ backing her, you have Satan, you will lose in the end!

January 7, 2014 1:03 pm

These are out of the word of God and for ALL of us!!!!! Pro 26:21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife. Pro 28:25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat. Pro 29:22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 1Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not… Read more »

Thank you Marie.
You made a very important point in this post, “As a Christian, I feel guilt when I have sinned.” All of us, true born again believers, should feel guilt when we sin. I know that I do, and thanks to the Holy Spirit for the convictions. That’s one fool-proof way to KNOW that we belong to Him. He chastens His children.

January 7, 2014 4:24 pm

Thank you. You just helped me realize something. I did not know that my guilt over sinning was a way of being chastened by God. Thank you for pointing that out. Now I will rejoice in my guilt!!! As you say, to be chastened is to be His child.

January 7, 2014 9:22 am

“income inequality”, it’s called socialism, and it’s the economic branch of communism. Pure and simple this administration will stop at nothing to turn our Republic into a godless heathen communist state.

January 7, 2014 12:09 pm

John Jr. Before Russia was a Comminist state, they were beliving in Totalism. But our USA is turning into Isalm state, even the liberals will lose their fight to change the USA!

January 7, 2014 2:21 pm

I believe islam will be a major factor in end time events.

January 7, 2014 9:27 am

Yes, John and at a speed of light pace!

January 7, 2014 9:29 am

Amen Marie.

January 7, 2014 12:04 pm

Marie: Ron lives by the Law, not by grace, so he can not feel those feeling from Jesus Christ. That why he does not want to discuss Salvation issues.

January 7, 2014 1:07 pm

Jas 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Jas 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
Jas 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

January 7, 2014 12:05 pm

Marie: That why the Pharisees, killed Jesus Christ, they lived by the Law, not by grace!
