AFA Article, "It seems Obama would rather bankrupt the nation," confirms this article!
In 2008, after Barack Obama took office he boldly promised to the American people he would, "cut the deficit (he) inherited by half before the end of his first term in office." The US national debt just reached $16 Trillion. When Obama took office in 2008, the debt he "inherited" was just over $9 Trillion. In other words, nearly half -- HALF -- of the current US deficit has been amassed under this man who calls himself our President.
Don't take my word for what Obama promised; watch this 59 second video, which highlights the fact that, by Obama's own standard, he has been an "irresponsible," "unpatriotic", failure:
Recently, I connected with Academy-Award winning actor Robert Duvall on Facebook. I was thrilled to see, Duvall is even more politically active than me, and that's hard to do! He knows the peril this nation faces; as does Clint Eastwood, Jon Voight, and others. I too understand the threat to freedom that exists under Barack Obama. Why else would I be writing this blog post at midnight on the eve of my final day of shooting "Ephraim's Rescue," which will hit theaters next year? God willing, we will have a new President then.
We know Obama has spent more than the last 50 Presidents combined, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say, he has done so intentionally. If someone promises to cut a deficit in half and then quietly goes on to nearly double it, that isn't just reckless spending; it is intentionally reckless spending. There is simply no other explanation for it. As Town Hall noted:
"You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to recognize the damage Obama is doing to the republic, and we haven't even touched on his unconstitutional and lawless usurpations of authority. The question isn't whether he is intentionally destroying America. The question is whether he is intentionally pursuing a set of policies that are definitely damaging America, irrespective of his motives. The answer is -- irrefutably, emphatically -- 'yes.'"
Now, the follow-up question is, why is Obama intentionally enslaving the United States of America to other countries through deficit spending? I answer: Watch "2016: Obama's America" and you will know why Obama is intentionally doing this; it's scary and it's true, but like most ugly realities, the reality that Obama is intentionally pursuing anti-American, socialistic policies must be accepted before we can fix it. We are well past "conspiracy" theories. The information presented in "2016" is verifiable and largely unchallenged by the Obama regime.
I cannot even begin to fathom why there is a single person in this country who would vote for a man who intentionally added $7,000,000,000,000.00 to our deficit and still has no budget; such a voter would be either blindly ignorant or confederate with the conspirator. If Obama was reelected, America would be finished.
Thank God, there is a man who is more prepared to save this country than anyone else. That man is Mitt Romney.
"To the majority of Americans who now believe that the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this: If Barack Obama is reelected, you'll be right. I'm running for President to help create a better future. A future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement... and unlike the President, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs (APPLAUSE)" - Mitt Romney, RNC 2012Just as Reagan was prepared to fix the disaster of Carter's Presidency, so is Mitt prepared to fix the catastrophic failure of Obama's. I am proud to stand with Robert Duvall, Clint Eastwood, Jon Voight, and many other Hollywood patriots (both silent and outspoken).
One of my favorite quotes from Mitt Romney's RNC speech illustrates his good-spirited, Presidential heart:
"I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. (APPLAUSE)" - Mitt Romney, RNC 2012Mitt's full RNC speech is below. Please watch it and share it. Mitt's vision for America is, unlike Barack Obama's, actually an American vision.
If we want the next four years to be better than the last, if we want the American vision to continue, and if we want Barack Obama to be accountable for the $7 trillion deficit he is responsible for intentionally inflicting upon our nation, we must - we MUST - elect Mitt Romney in November.
