Liar in Chief: Seconds After Obama Pleaded for ‘Bipartisanship’ in SOTU He Attacks GOP

President Obama couldn’t have proved his hypocrisy better at this year’s State of the Union speech than when he called for bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle but only seconds later slammed Republicans as working to take the vote away from people and taunting them with “I won.”

About halfway through his Santa Claus of the Union speech, President Obama once again loosed his tired claim that he is interested in the ideas Republicans have. He once again lied about how he is ready to leave partisan politics behind and is ready to reach across the aisle. This year he had a new catch phrase for it saying several times that we need “a better politics,” one where both parties work together.

But only seconds after he made that call he went on to claim that Republicans are trying to take the vote away from people, and taunted the GOP that “I won” two elections.

Obama’s hypocritical call for “A better politics” was something he described as, “one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.”

A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues, and values, and principles, and facts, rather than “gotcha” moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives.

A better politics is one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter, and spend more time lifting young people up, with a sense of purpose and possibility, and asking them to join in the great mission of building America.

This from the man who launched a TV ad in the last election that called his opponent a murderer, a move even the left-wing CNN called a blatant lie.

This appeal to bipartisanship is coming from the president who has not once, not ever reached across the aisle to work with the opposing party. Not as president, not as a Senator from Illinois, hell not even when he was an average everyday state lawmaker!

The fact is, Obama is one of the harshest, most partisan presidents in American history.

All that aside, the niceties of calling for bipartisanship is de rigueur for this liar in chief. He’s shoehorned this blather into every State of the Unions speech, so perhaps it should not be much of a surprise that he did so again. But only seconds went by before he made the lie to his own claims of wanting bipartisanship.

Firstly he warned of veto after veto. The new session of Congress has barely started but in this speech Obama already noted that he won’t work with Congress. Despite claims for “a better politics,” Obama essentially shut down every GOP idea on the agenda.

But tellingly, only seconds passed after his call for bipartisanship when Obama accused the GOP of trying to take the vote away from people:

We may go at it in campaign season, but surely we can agree that the right to vote is sacred; that it’s being denied to too many; and that, on this 50th anniversary of the great march from Selma to Montgomery and the passage of the Voting Rights Act, we can come together, Democrats and Republicans, to make voting easier for every single American.

Obama was clearly talking about voter ID laws that he has directed his Attorney General to attack. But it’s a blatant lie, this business about trying to take the vote from people. No one is trying to do that. Making laws to stop vote fraud and assure the integrity of the voting rolls is not the same thing as trying to stop people from voting. But the big Democrat lie is that they are one and the same.

So much for his notions of playing nice. Only a few short paragraphs after calling for “better politics” Obama resorts to the same old partisan lies.

Then came the taunts. Two more paragraphs after the lie about voter ID laws, Obama said, “I have no more campaigns to run.

This brought some smattering of applause from the GOP. As soon as the clapping stopped Obama reverted back to President “I WON” by saying, “I know, because I won both of them.”

So, once again we see the most petulant president in American history, one who lies at every turn, one who mouths the nice words of cooperation but plays politics in a more partisan manner than any American president ever has.

Obama is truly the divider in chief.

So Far, Obama Has Broken a Whopping 112 Promises From SOTU Speeches
  • Retired military

    From my understanding Obama listed a lot of things that he wanted to do to help the middle class because they are doing so bad.
    Well my question is who has been president for the past 6 years? If the middle class is doing so bad then isnt his policies a lot to blame for it. Especially since 2 of those years he had a supermajority in the Senate and the House.

      • Commander_Chico

        Obama was and is a tool of Wall Street, they got the impunity to rob they wanted from him.

        98% of gains in GDP going to the 1%.

        I’m sure we’ll be so much better off once Hillary or Jeb takes office, though.

        The USA is truly fucked.

        • Retired military

          And you still voted for him twice and will vote for Hillary too

    • jim_m

      If he had gotten his way there would be no more middle class and therefore no more problem.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    The lying son-of-a-bitch can’t even come up with guest who’s real. Rebekah Erler, guest of Obama who supposedly was discovered by Obama when she wrote to him extolling the virtues of Obama’s magnificent policies which led to our nation’s recovery, was a field organizer for Patty Murray who had been used as a prop by Obama previously. If she was having a “tough time”, maybe Patty should have paid her better and given her better benefits:

    “The woman whose story of economic recovery was showcased by President Barack Obama in his State of the Union address is a former Democratic campaign staffer and has been used by Obama for political events in the past.

    Rebekah Erler has been presented by the White House as a woman who was discovered by the president after she wrote to him last March about her economic hardships. She was showcased in the speech as proof that middle class Americans are coming forward to say that Obama’s policies are working.

    Unmentioned in the White House bio of Erler is that she is a former Democratic campaign operative, working as a field organizer for Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.).

    Here’s how our Bull-Shitter in Chief described Ms. Erler in his SOTU address [get out the hankies, ’cause this is OUR story, America!]:

    “Seven years ago, Rebekah and Ben Erler of Minneapolis were newlyweds. She waited tables. He worked construction. Their first child, Jack, was on the way.

    They were young and in love in America, and it doesn’t get much better than that.

    “If only we had known,” Rebekah wrote to me last spring, “what was about to happen to the housing and construction market.”

    As the crisis worsened, Ben’s business dried up, so he took what jobs he could find, even if they kept him on the road for long stretches of time. Rebekah took out student loans, enrolled in community college, and retrained for a new career. They sacrificed for each other. And slowly, it paid off. They bought their first home. They had a second son, Henry. Rebekah got a better job, and then a raise. Ben is back in construction – and home for dinner every night.

    “It is amazing,” Rebekah wrote, “what you can bounce back from when you have to…we are a strong, tight-knit family who has made it through some very, very hard times.”

    America, Rebekah and Ben’s story is our story. They represent the millions who have worked hard, and scrimped, and sacrificed, and retooled. You are the reason I ran for this office. You’re the people I was thinking of six years ago today, in the darkest months of the crisis, when I stood on the steps of this Capitol and promised we would rebuild our economy on a new foundation. And it’s been your effort and resilience that has made it possible for our country to emerge stronger.”

  • Retired military

    To be honest the scattered GOP applause when Obama said he didnt have any more elections was in bad form. Of course the thin skinned boy president rather than being above the fray as Bush demonstrated several times, chose to get down in the dirt and wallow in it as well.

    • Vagabond661

      Obama proved this was a STFU speech not a SOTU speech.

      • Retired military

        From what I know of it, I believe that this is a true statement.
        Obama once again fails to lead positively by example, instead he looks like the petulant schoolboy going “na na na na na”

  • jim_m

    Even the left has called him delusional and out of touch with this speech. Nuf said.

    • jim_m

      My apologies. The text prediction on my cell phone is amazingly unhelpful

  • GarandFan

    King Barack wouldn’t know “bipartisanship” if it walked up and kicked him the nuts.

    As a member of the “middle class”, I shudder to think of him helping me. Just like he helped others by lowering their heath insurance bills by $2,500 year.

    Oh, and Fuzz Nuts better keep his freaking redistributionist hands off my grandsons’ 529 college fund. Jug Ears can just tell his followers ‘If you can’t feed ’em, don’t breed ’em!’

  • EnoughIsEnough

    I didn’t find many people that actually tuned into the SOTU address last night, but what really surprised me was how many of the people that did watch ended up turning it off because of how nasty and untruthful President Obama was. Apparently he is only the president of some of the population, and screw everyone else. Red states, blue states, purple states, United States. Remember that campaign slogan? Real people are hurting, and he still insists on dividing and attacking. Rather than healing this nation, history will judge him on all of the opportunities he has squandered to be remembered as a true American leader.

    • Walter_Cronanty

      I posted this on an earlier thread, but it bears repeating – from the UK:

      “A good proportion of the US electorate must have hoped that in electing Barack Obama as president, they would be getting the visionary intellect and magnetism of a John Kennedy.

      Instead, they ended up with the vision of Jimmy Carter and the personal charm of Richard Nixon. Mr Obama’s State of the Union address was about as relentlessly bellicose and self-regarding as it was possible for a president whose politics had received two successive popular rejections to be….

      In the end, he made his usual self-righteous pitch for bipartisan politics – which was, in effect, a demand that his opponents (and the voters who had swept them into Congressional power) simply admit that he was right all along.

      What a waste of national goodwill this presidency has been. With a spirit of generosity and a real determination to unite the country, an Obama White House might have accomplished so much. Instead, it has shown itself to be disastrously out of its depth on foreign policy and intransigently out of touch on domestic issues. And contrary to his own clear belief, I do not think history will decide otherwise.”

      • EnoughIsEnough

        Thank you for your posting. It reflects many of the feelings that a lot of Americans have. President Obama believes that the rest of the country is as petty as he is, and governs accordingly. I honestly believe that most people don’t share his animosity. Of course there are people, both far left and far right, that play the political game. But a wise man knows the difference, and can sift through all the politics to be a leader of ALL the people. President Obama seems quite pleased with himself, but sadly, his legacy will be of one that is just average (or worse). He could have been an icon, but squandered the opportunity for politics. Sad, so sad.

        • Walter_Cronanty

          Many of us thought something like this was going to happen. The MSM did not vet President Obama.

    • jim_m

      He’s not the President of any people. He represents an agenda. It doesn’t matter who you are, what color of skin you have, if you stand in the way of his ideological agenda he will throw you under the bus.

      Even the blacks in Chicago are noticing this fact. obama represents only himself and cares nothing for the lives of 300+ million Americans. If he felt that his “legacy” would be better off if 300+ million people were starved or enslaved he would be happy to make tat happen.

      Shorter Bruce: “Here’s the view from people with their lips wrapped around his member.”

      • Brucehenry

        More homoerotic imagery from he-man Jim.

        • jim_m

          It’s a more accurate description of your attitude and behavior. When even Chris Matthews is saying that obama is detached from reality, one might expect that you would accept that fact too. But no, you are committed to Dear Leader and nothing he does or says is anything but perfect. You will excuse each and every error and failure right up to the very end. He advances your anti-American agenda and that is all that matters to you.

          • Brucehenry

            That kind of imagery is the go-to analogy for you. Just sayin’.

          • jim_m

            Not really. I give you all sorts of fascist and totalitarian analogies too. You seem to not be as offended by them because they are pretty much the truth and you are far more comfortable with that.

          • Commander_Chico

            Because you like to think of those black uniforms.

        • jim_m

          You’re one to complain about homoerotic imagery when every other comment you make talks about anal sex (ie “butthurt”).

    • Walter_Cronanty

      And here’s a view of your messiah’s SOTU address by two members of the left who, in Jim M’s words, are “…people with their lips wrapped around his member.”

      “Even Andrea Mitchell says Obama IGNORED REALITY in State of the Union; NO STRATEGY on foreign policy”

      “This is a very surprising and frank discussion from two pretty far left liberals criticizing Obama’s lack of answers on foreign policy. Chris Matthews even goes so far as to say Obama is creating his own universe, in a solipsistic manner, where he ignores the reality of the world collapsing around us….

      The real news from this speech is that Obama is abandoning foreign policy because it’s a disaster, and he’s just going to pretend everything is fine.”

      http://therightscoop.com/even-

      • Brucehenry

        That link talks about an Iranian Christian or something.

        Do you imagine octogenarian Mitchell and ossified Chris Matthews are the Voices Of The Left?

        • Walter_Cronanty

          Here’s the correct link – sorry. http://therightscoop.com/even-andrea-mitchell-says-obama-ignored-reality-in-state-of-the-union-no-strategy-on-foreign-policy/
          Mitchell and Matthews aren’t voices of the Right. You think maybe that tingle that went Chrissie’s leg was really the onset of ossification?

          • Brucehenry

            I think that liberals don’t march in lockstep. That’s why, much to the glee of conservatives, occasionally they get to gloat that “Even the liberal so-and-so says…”

          • Sky__Captain

            Just keep deflecting and dodging, L’il Brucie. Some day, you’ll win a debate when others just get tired of dealing with you.

          • Brucehenry

            It’s cute when you talk about “winning a debate.”

          • jim_m

            Especially since you rarely debate seeing as you pretty much have nothing but snark and ducking the issues as your strategies.

          • Brucehenry

            It’s true that most of the time I don’t see what I do here as “debate,” and also true that I like to snark.

            As do many others here, including this genius who calls himself “Sky_Captain.” His idea of “winning a debate” seems to be snarking that others aren’t winning the debate.

          • jim_m

            Yada, yada.

            Some of these are jokes.

            I will agree with you, precious little of what you do here could be considered debate. Only rarely do you actually offer anything resembling proof of your positions or something resembling anything but an unthinking apology for whatever Obama does. It is quite obvious that you never bother to think about Obama’s positions and you simply defend them reflexively.

          • Brucehenry

            And you attack them reflexively.

          • jim_m

            Not true. There have been numerous occasions when I have disagreed with the authors here. There have been times when I have been alone in agreement with someone like Chico on an issue. I don’t think there has ever been a time when you were sided with Warner against anyone.

          • Commander_Chico

            There is nobody like Chico.

            Yes, progs never do that.

          • Retired military

            “I think that liberals don’t march in lockstep”
            Where as neither party has those in lock step if I had to pick one that does it the most it would be the left. If the right is in locksteop so much why are there constant stories about the “tea party uprisings,” you don’t seem to hear that on the left.
            Why do you have 90% of the dems voting the same way on about 95% of things (ie Obamacare) when on the right you don’t have it nearly as much.

  • Commander_Chico

    What about Boner inviting Nutanyahoo to address Congress in an attempt to pass more sanctions to torpedo the Iran negotiations?

    There’s supposed to be one foreign policy for the USA, not a Democratic and a Republican foreign policy.

    It’s traitorous to push your own country into an unnecessary war in behalf of a foreign power. We already had the Iraq war that way.

        By the way, anyone from that era knows how fortunate sons got into the National Guard and unlike today, the National Guard did not find themselves in “real” war.

          Ah yes, Winter Soldier Kerry. Threw his medals over the fence …. oops, those were somebody else’s medals. Once he went into politics, he put his medals on display.
          He’s not a coward, he’s an opportunistic poseur – a dilettante. And that appearance in Paris with James Taylor – that epitomizes John Kerry.

      • Commander_Chico

        Good question, I saw Kerry talking on Syria and Iraq today and I am astounded. The USA will be fighting as an ally of ISIS and as an opponent of ISIS. Ho, I guess that way you can’t lose. Or win. How about we GTFO?
