Michelle Obama’s Publicity Stunt at Target Store

Posted by FactReal on September 30, 2011

The latest Obama PR stunt brought to you by none other than Michelle Obama — who has spent $10 Million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations in the past year, who wears $42,150 diamond bracelets and has a penchant for five-star hotels, expensive drinks and extravagant designer clothes.

Now, the Obama political machine wants us to believe that:
1. Michelle Obama is just like us and shops where we shop.
2. The AP photographer also happened to be shopping at the same Target store.

Michelle Obama’s casual slip-out trip to Target is being met with scepticism, as media personalities deride the ‘incognito’ visit as a well-timed PR stunt.

Only last month the First Lady was accused of indulging in luxury holidays worth $10million dollars on the tax payers’ dime.

And barely a week ago the 47-year-old mother-of-two was criticised for wearing $40,000 diamonds to a fund-raising event…

Show the world that she really can do recession chic, Mrs Obama headed to a Target store in Alexandria, Virginia, on Thursday afternoon.

Secret Service officers reportedly swept the store on Highway 1, thirty minutes before Mrs Obama popped in for her housewives’ essentials- dog food and cleaning products…

Associated Press photographer Charles Dharapak caught a few images of Mrs Obama reaching the check out…

Radio host Rush Limbaugh also denounced the visit on his show as a ‘photo-op’…’You think the AP has photographers waiting outside stores for Moochelle to show up?” Limbaugh asked. “Who do they think we are?’ (…)

Certainly the White House have not so far denied that Dharapak was tipped off. (…)

Mrs Obama is currently involved in a major fund-raising effort in the run-up to her husband’s re-election campaign.

Here is Michelle Obama with her shopping assistant. (How many Americans have shopping assistants?):

Obama 2009: The Last Thing You Want is to Raise Taxes in a Recession (Video)

Posted by FactReal on July 11, 2011

Obama is now calling for tax increases, but in 2009 he was against it.
Video via GatewayPundit:

Transcript via Doug Powers: “Obama’s 2009 interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd during which Obama warned against raising taxes on anybody — even the rich — during a recession.”

August 5, 2009 – NBC Interview1:

Todd: Let me jump to another topic, Scott Ferguson, he’s upset about taxes, he says: “Explain how raising taxes on anyone during a deep recession is going to help with the economy.” And he actually wants to you look at historical markers where this has been — you say, you know, where this has been a helpful thing coming out of a recession.

Obama: Well, first of all, he is right. Normally, you don’t raise taxes in a recession, which is why we haven’t and why we have instead cut taxes. So I guess what I would say to Scott is his economics are right, you don’t raise taxes in a recession. We haven’t raised taxes in a recession. We don’t have a…

Todd: But you might for health care. You might for the highest — for some of the wealthiest.

Obama: The — we have not proposed a tax hike for the wealthy that would take effect in the middle of a recession. Even the proposals that have come out of Congress, which, by the way, were different from the proposals I put forward, still wouldn’t kick in until after the recession was over.

So he is absolutely right, the last thing you want to do is to raise taxes in the middle of a recession because that would just suck up — take more demand out of the economy and put businesses in a further hole.

OBAMACARE NEGATIVE EFFECTS: ObamaCare Will Kill 800,000 Jobs, CBO director says (Video)

Posted by FactReal on February 11, 2011

CBO director: Employment will be reduced by 800,000 Workers
Exchange between Rep. John Campbell (R-CA) and Congressional Budget Office (CBO) director Doug Elmendorf:

CAMPBELL: “That means that, in your estimation, the health care law would reduce employment by 800,000 in ’20-’21. Is that correct?”

ELMENDORF: “Yes. The way I would put it is that we do estimate, as you said, that the household employment will be about 160 million by the end of the decade. Half a percent of that is 800,000. That means that if the reduction in the labor used was workers working the average number of hours in the economy and earning the average wage, that there would be a reduction of 800,000 workers.”

But in 2010, Democrat Nancy Pelosi said: Health Reform Will Create 400,000 Jobs “Almost Immediately” (video):
Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the health summit: “It’s about jobs. In it’s life, it [the health bill] will create 4 million jobs — 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”
