The Real Truth about Obama’s “Truth Team”


by Jayne Frank

On a daily basis, the Obama campaign team emails all the millennials, blacks, Latinos and other “groups” that supported him in 2008 to deluge them with lies about Obama’s record and why he should be given another chance.  It would be funny if it were not so sad.

The most flagrant and dishonest email I have ever seen is the one yesterday that there are 5 truths that Obama wants people to “put on their refrigerator” and pass along to everyone they meet.   The Obama groupies are encouraged to spread Obama’s five truths as follows.  The real truth about each one of these points is highlighted in red thereafter.

1)  Romney is the most radically anti-women candidate in a generation having supported the ban on Planned Parenthood and supported a ban on some abortion procedures.

Truth:  Unlike the Democratic talking heads, Romney has never demeaned womanhood, either in the workplace or in his capacity as Governor.  He treats all women as equals as not “victims” which flies in the face of everything the DNC and the Democratic party stands for.  The Democrats must, in order to be re-elected, portray women in America as victims unable to get fair pay for their work (unless a law demands it), and as an entitled group that must be given contraceptives and abortive services for free as they wish.  They also now have demeaned stay-at-home moms as not being productive in society.  This from a man who stated in his past that he would support Muslims whose entire life is devoted to making women subservient and second-class people.  This from a man who, through his own economic policies, has made women one of the largest unemployed groups in  America and has  put back decades the ability for women to work hard and progress in the private-sector marketplace.  

Knowing that the President of the United States represents all women of the U.S., not just the underprivileged, Romney supports NO FEDERAL FUNDING sent to Planned Parenthood.  We can’t afford it and Planned Parenthood can exist on private donations alone.

2)  Romney will repeal Obamacare.

You bet he will!  And he will have Congress replace it with a health care reform that will protect people with pre-existing conditions and make sure that doctors in America have the ability to treat their patients and not have to ration care for the less productive portions of our population (according to Obama), our precious seniors.  America is broke, has almost a $17 trillion deficit, and the Congressional Budget Office has already said that Obamacare will cost over $1.3 trillion more than the projected $1 trillion that was projected in the Legislation.  Quite truthfully, Obamacare is socialized medicine and will kill the quality of care for all Americans.

3)   Romney doesn’t have what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief because he shifts positions on foreign policy!

Are you serious?  This from a man who had zero experience to be qualified for this high office other than organizing community groups to protest inequality and to keep the entitlement system in place.   Due to his bowing to the entire world, continually apologizing for America, we are the laughing-stock of countries, especially in the middle east, who continually “test” Obama’s resolve.  I admit that Obama is steady in his foreign policy – he has none other than portraying America as a weak country not willing to stand up for its Allies or picking and choosing which human rights issues are worth taking a stand on.

4)  Romney’s economic plans would take more money from the middle class….

I won’t even finish this sentence because of the disgust this writer has for this repeated lie.  47% of Americans don’t pay taxes, and the top 1% of taxpayers pay almost 50% of the taxes in this Country.  There is nothing more to be said.  This President has made his 1st priority in his Presidency demeaning private sector success (unless it is from one of his wealthy donors such as a Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Warren Buffet).  His own admitted policy as stated in his campaign was to “redistribute wealth.”  So why young people in this country would not see that there will be no opportunities under this Administration to work in the private sector and make a success of themselves financially, is beyond me.  Is sitting back and “taking” from our Government more satisfying than working hard and putting your hard-earned money in your pocket more satisfying?  I think not.

5)  Romney would end Medicare as we know it

Obama and the Democrats are once again resorting to the only tactics they know – trying to scare seniors, knowing that they are a very crucial voting block for the Presidential election.  The truth is that Medicare is on a downward spiral.  With millions of new baby boomers hitting the Medicare program each year, and with fewer and fewer people in the workforce able to pay into the Medicare system, Medicare WILL end as we know it with the help of Obama.   With a country in this much debt, the Medicare program must be overhauled so that our children and grandchildren have a program that will be there to supplement their medical care as well.  The perception is that there are seniors just waiting until they can get Medicare so they can then leech off the system for the rest of their lives.  In truth, seniors hate being forced into a Federally mandated medical health system and it is certainly true that the majority of us cannot survive off this benefits alone without spending a great percentage of our fixed income supplementing this Federal program.  Seniors are not stupid and we will overwhelming vote for a President, and a Congressional team, that is supportive of keeping benefits intact for seniors already getting Medicare, but who will lead and make the hard choices necessary to save Medicare for our kids and grandkids.

One of the most abysmal omissions in this emails is the effect that Obamacare will have on seniors’ healthcare.  You are starting to see rationing and decisions made by non-medical care boards within the Government on what care is appropriate and which procedures will be turned down, spiraling costs for our Medicare contributions that seniors are already making, and huge 30% increases for supplemental insurance that seniors must carry.   None of us, under Obamacare, are going to be allowed to see specialists if the “Board” thinks it is not warranted, and our own private doctors are being put in the position of either declining to see us anymore because of lack of payment under Medicare or because of the onerous regulations being placed on them under Obamacare.  Remember, under Obamacare, it is prohibited for you to pay for any procedure or doctor if you have the money to do so!  You bet Mitt Romney or any other Republican being elected to office will repeal this onerous legislation passed without a majority of Congress or the American people, and in the dark of night.

I know that some young people in this country see the President of our Country as a rock star – someone who feels their pain and can technologically keep up with them.  But I feel that is a huge minority, and that young people want the same prospects for their lives as I and my parents and grandparents had.  The prospect that if we worked hard,  persevered, and were good citizens and dedicated to our families, that the quality of life would be good for them and that life would be rewarding.  They are not willing to buy this “Bill of Goods” that the Obama administration is trying to sell, and that they will help elect a President in 2012 that is willing and able to put America back on the path to prosperity and freedom that I so enjoyed in my lifetime.
