About the idea that Obama’s spending has been tame

You’ve heard of lies, damned lies, and statistics? Well, here’s Exhibit A: a column at MarketWatch by Rex Nutting.
Nutting’s column, titled “Obama spending binge never happened,” has caused a lot of excitement among people who would like to believe it’s true. And the bottom-line numbers — which are as far as Nutting goes in his column — do show that total spending has risen more slowly between fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2013 than you might have otherwise believed. Annual federal spending growth during President Obama’s first term, Nutting’s numbers show, has been 1.4 percent. That would be slower than in any of the seven previous terms, dating to the beginning of the Reagan years. Going out of his way to be even-handed, Nutting even graciously attributes Obama’s “stimulus” spending in FY09 to Obama rather than to George W. Bush, under whom that fiscal year began.
Obama generates conversations of what I would call a”shock value”, in order to literally generate conversation(attention); that he perceives will be in his favor. He out-and-out lies about easily proven facts.The results go both ways, either he considers not only his blind followers to be stupid and devoid of researching facts, as well as the rest of the voting public; and he also presumes that his lie will be believed, simply because he said so.
I am waiting for Charles Krauthammer to suggest Obama undergo a psych eval. either Obama is so delusional that he truly believes his lies, or there is an alternate universe and expectation of everyone who isn’t a democrat, to lose their ability as adults to discern a truth from a lie. Either way this is beyond campaigning. As with the attempt of the newe government definition of what a church is visa-a- vis qualifying for exemptions from the department of HHS. I say its time to call out each and every lie(yes, I realize there will not be enough people nor enough time), but must demand and be able to cope with what the truth is. We cannot as a nation allow for the liars to continue on with their definitions and their control of our country. When we are wrongly informed, we a ill-prepared for dealing with reality.
What we know as pathological lying also has the following terms equally applied:Pseudologia fantastica and, mythomania. I love mythomania-it really describes the madness around the cult of Obama and the need, hell- outright addiction to defending what is either pure fiction in many of his imagined accomplishments or in debunking his pants on fire, reframing of what is, and has been defined for generations. An example would be when I say “table”, you understand what that is. Obama will call it something that it is not, for his advantage. He in this example will choose to call the table, “chair” claiming it functions the same way. But it doesn’t does it? You don’t eat off of a chair-being the significant difference. He would claim his chair is a chair-table and combines facets of both when confronted with the obvious difference. The rational person would wonder why the hell he didn’t say that to begin with, and figure out he was a person willing to change his definition in increments to become right each time you would question his definition; because he is a liar and cannot cope with being incorrect, wrong or called out on ignorance of fact.
This is what Obama does with politics, which is not mud-slinging; it is perversion. There is the history of who he is, based on what we know, provided by no-one outside of blood relations. Yep he is a self-made man, and so is Mitt Romney. The difference is Mitt Romney actually created his success, made decisions, took action, had mistakes and regrets and kept trying until he became accomplished. Obama created a fiction of success, because he was not successful, I would even argue further he is sick with jealousy over the success of others. His accomplishments were meant to be of an altruistic nature, but he needed and demanded more of a position that should have not ever been equated to anything other than what it was; working for a non-profit charity, making money from that charity, and claiming the success of that charity as a whole. Most people who work for community organizing groups do not seek to get public kudos for this type of employment. Obama had to create a fiction of what he would like to be, but does not have the life lived, or experienced to draw on for success-so he extrapolates from the lives of others and his imagination- no facts to back up that life, he speaks of, because it was manufactured, not experienced and lived. He invented what he thought would buy him the office of the President.. People have caught on and a handful seem to be waking from the coma of seduction they allowed themselves to be put into.
I can’t stand a liar, never could. I haven’t always had an easy time telling the truth; most people who consider a lie to cover their ass, do it out of fear of discovery of something. I realized I do much better with the truth once I get over the hump of my embarrassment, as the truth has always been easier to recall, it tells the same each time. I finally let go of having to justify the truth and just spoke it, popular or not. Trust me I don’t get invited to a lot of parties, and yes truth that is blunt can be rude, I am working on it.
But which is better a total liar who tells you fantasy day in and out, or a blunt friend who really will tell you, you look fat in that dress? Who do you trust more? That is simply how people who cannot work at facts need to approach this election. Who do you trust more? Someone you know damned good and well is lying…consider eventually your group, your cause will suffer from the consequences of one of Obama’s lies; or the truth that may be hard when Romney tells us, you can’t have everything in the entitlement isle of Toys are Us? Do you want to be led blindly, and no doubt happily to total chaos, anarchy, possible starvation, class and race warfare in our country? Or do you want to let go of the things you do not need. I need shelter, food, air, and water, this is minimal. I would like to live in a country where I can practice freedoms, and be given rights to go beyond my very minimal needs. Everyone of them is a gift and deserve respect, not redefining, to suit a serial liar such as Obama. I know Romney will have some hard truths the adults will be able to hear, and the sycophants will wail about as their tit is removed, and its time to move onto a sipee cup or binky.
I leave you with this:
The defining characteristics of pseudologia fantastica are:
- The stories told are not entirely improbable and often have some element of truth. They are not a manifestation of delusion or some broader type of psychosis: upon confrontation, the teller can admit them to be untrue, even if unwillingly.
- The fabricative tendency is long lasting; it is not provoked by the immediate situation or social pressure as much as it is an innate trait of the personality.
- A definitely internal, not an external, motive for the behavior can be discerned clinically: e.g. long lasting extortion or habitual spousal battery might cause a person to lie repeatedly, without the lying being a pathological symptom.
- The stories told tend toward presenting the liar favorably. For example, the person might be presented as being fantastically brave, knowing or being related to many famous people.
Pseudologia fantastica may also present as false memory syndrome, where the sufferer genuinely believes that fictitious events have taken place, regardless that these events are fantasies. The sufferer may believe that he or she has committed superhuman acts of altruism and love or has committed equally grandiose acts of diabolical evil, for which the sufferer must atone, or has already atoned for in her/his fantasies.
Footnote-If I could speak to the Jury at the John Edwards trial-psst…t, have you considered the following?John Edwards was running for President, correct? He wanted to be the one, to hold a great deal of responsibility and power in our country, correct? This would take a smart man who knew things? True. So you mean to tell me he didn’t know the requirements for campaign contributionsper the FEC, and he has ran for office several times? My ass, the man is guilty. Another example of a serial lair, and look to what lengths he went.
