Top 5 Lies and other obfuscations of Obama’s Last State of the Union Address.

1)      "We gather tonight knowing that this generation of heroes has made the United States safer and more respected around the world. For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq. For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country. Most of al Qaeda's top lieutenants have been defeated. The Taliban's momentum has been broken, and some troops in Afghanistan have begun to come home."
Victory in Iraq? Well yes we may have had victory in Iraq, as a matter of fact thousands of US troops paid the ultimate sacrifice there, and the American Taxpayers spent Billions if not a Trillion dollars for victory there. You were handed a victory in which the insurgency was over, and all that was left was to put together a coalition government, and secure the peace, but of course you failed miserably at this. You sent Biden to negotiate for the peace, which would have included leaving about 2-3,000 US troops as a security force for the new government, but Biden pissed everyone over there from the Kurds, to the Sunnis and the Shia, and we did not “pull” our troops out of there after securing the peace, you failed to negotiate for a workable peace, and we were basically told to get out.

2)     We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules."

This “shrinking middle class thing is a hoax. It doesn’t exist. You did tell the truth when you said a growing number of Americans are barely getting by. You are the cause of it, not the rich people in this country. The poor do not get poorer because the rich get richer, the poor get poorer because you try to punish the job creators, and saddle the businesses that may have hired those poor people, with gigantic new expenses like Obamacare, and ridiculous regulations that have those that WOULD create jobs, to wait until you are out of office. The one thing more than any others that you President Obama have done to increase the number of unemployed people, the number of welfare recipients, the number of food stamps recipients, is through your first 2 years with the implementation of Obamacare, and with your wishy washy rhetoric of making the “rich pay their fair share” and with the demagoguery against those that create jobs and opportunity, you have created an environment that it uncertain. Uncertainty about what is next for an employer. What will a small businessman’s tax rate be? What will a large businesses corporate tax rate be? What will Obamacare mean to the bottom line? Will only your supporters obtain waivers, or will others get them as well? A business is unlike a Democratic Party Planning Session. They do not make decisions that will only affect them until the following year’s election. They have projections 1 year, 2 years, and 5 years out. Decisions about hiring a new worker, or investing in another factory, or whether they should outsource jobs are all made years in advance. Not one single policy that you have passed since you came into office has given ANY business reason to believe that their opportunity is greater in the future here in the US. None.  You are a hindrance to business growth. You create the atmosphere that THEY are bad, and the WORKERS are good, and that it is their responsibility to give the workers a job, despite all the obstacles that you have thrown up. But that’s not how it works, and it never has, and it never will. It seems that what you want is a fascists, or socialist country, where the WORKERS are the reason that businesses exist, and not the other way around. People get upset when I say that you are a Marxist, or a Socialist, but sorry, Marxist is as Marxist thinks.

3) In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than three million jobs. Last year, they created the most jobs since 2005. American manufacturers are hiring again, creating jobs for the first time since the late 1990s. Together, we've agreed to cut the deficit by more than $2 trillion. And we've put in place new rules to hold Wall Street accountable, so a crisis like that never happens again.

You know you sound just like a damned gambling addict that only tells you about the 10K they won at poker, but neglects to tell you that they lost 11K the night before.  American manufacturing is dying and has been dying for the past 30 years. Your buddies in the Unions have killed them off, so they reopen with a smaller workforce in a right to work state. With every regulation you put in place, with every cost you saddle employers with, the labor costs rise and manufacturers will find cheaper labor in 2nd and 3rd world countries that do not have such burdens.

4) "We should start with our tax code. Right now, companies get tax breaks for moving jobs and profits overseas. Meanwhile, companies that choose to stay in America get hit with one of the highest tax rates in the world. It makes no sense, and everyone knows it Second, no American company should be able to avoid paying its fair share of taxes by moving jobs and profits overseas. From now on, every multinational company should have to pay a basic minimum tax. And every penny should go towards lowering taxes for companies that choose to stay here and hire here. Third, if you're an American manufacturer, you should get a bigger tax cut. If you're a high-tech manufacturer, we should double the tax deduction you get for making products here. And if you want to relocate in a community that was hit hard when a factory left town, you should get help financing a new plant, equipment, or training for new workers My message is simple. It's time to stop rewarding businesses that ship jobs overseas, and start rewarding companies that create jobs right here in America. Send me these tax reforms, and I'll sign them right away."
Actually you liar, you said this last year too, yet you have done nothing to lower the tax rates on ANY US corporation, and instead vilify them for making profits.  Again with this fair share nonsense? Here’s an idea chump; lower the taxes for all US businesses, do away with all the tax breaks for this company or that industry, do away with all the corporate welfare for all industries, and POOF! What do you have? Almost the free market. Winners will win, and losers will be out of business replaced by winners. You simply do not have the ability to understand economics nor the free market.

5) "Tonight, I'm announcing the creation of a Trade Enforcement Unit that will be charged with investigating unfair trade practices in countries like China. There will be more inspections to prevent counterfeit or unsafe goods from crossing our borders. And this Congress should make sure that no foreign company has an advantage over American manufacturing when it comes to accessing finance or new markets like Russia. Our workers are the most productive on Earth, and if the playing field is level, I promise you - America will always win."

Great another federal bureaucracy that wouldn’t be needed if you would simply kept us competitive in the world with lower tax burden, less regulations, and not hamstringing the US business with your mandated overhead. You see Chump, we Americans like to think that we are special, and that we are better people than the rest of the world. Well let me tell you a little secret. We are not genetically superior in any way. We do not work harder or smarter by nature. What made us the best people in the world was our belief and moral system. We were told that we were special, and we were because of the Freedom we had in this country. No place on Earth had ever existed like the US, where anybody, from any background, from anywhere could rise to the very top of society. It was called the American Dream, but in fact it wasn’t a dream at all, and should have been called The American Reality. We had the freest economy in the world. We applauded success, and those that strived to better themselves. But much of that attitude is gone now. Now success is vilified by you and your ilk, now personal achievement is met with envy and derision. People that succeed are called greedy, and claims are made that they are not paying their fair share. They are called fortunate as if they are lucky to be successful and the hard work they put in to achieve was some coincidence of fate they had nothing to do with. So no sir, the playing field is not level around the world, but frankly it never has been, and it never will be. We as a country overcame all the inequities and have ruled this planet economically for the past 100 years, because of our freedom, and with each new tax, with each new regulation, with each new government program, with each dollar that we borrow, with each story where the rich are vilified, with every accusation of greed to a corporation we are LOSING WHAT MADE US THE BEST!!! And as President Reagan said, you are not the solution to this problem, you ARE the problem. And as for improving the economy, for allowing those that want to work find it readily available and for making this country great again, take the advice of my literary brother John Galt, and GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR WAY!

Sorry folks. This was going to be the top 10 lies, but I couldn’t stomach any more of this guy’s crap.
