Why I will not vote for Obama

The presidential race

Why I do not trust Obama.:


Obama set the tone, breaking his transparency pledge with the very first bill he signed into law. January 29,2009.  In violation of his pledge “sunlight before signing”

(when there is a bill presented to me you will have five days to view it on line before I sign it. ) When this bill was posted on line for review and it was already signed.


Obama broke the pledge again with the mad rush to pass his trillion dollar, pork-stuffed stimulus package full of earmarks he denied existed.


And Again with the 2000 page Obama care that was pushed through without allowing congress the time to read it.


Obama refused to supply occupation and employer information for his top fundraisers and he carried on the “late night document dumps” to minimize scrutiny of his wealthiest cabinet members.


His Czar appointments through executive orders created a shadow cabinet of secretaries overseeing every aspect of domestic policy with unchecked powers beyond congressional reach.


In his first two weeks as President, he made 17 exceptions to his “no-lobbyiest rule”


My mother always said, Judge a person by the friends they keep.

Obama’s friends, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Jeremiah Wright, SEIU and ACORN.

To name just a few – wow!


Obama tries to present himself as the guardian of the everyman =middle class

While he attacks Romney, just as he attacked McCain for being wealthy.  He seems to forget that his own 1.7 millions dollar Chicago home was financed with a discounted mortgage from Northern Trust and infamously  included a shady land swap with convicted felon Tony Rezko.  Does the average Joe- get discounted mortgages?


SEIU  pushed it’s people to donate over 27 million dollars to Obama’s campaign. Within two weeks of moving into the white house, Obama immediately signed a series of executive orders championed by union bosses.  The new rules authorized sweeping powers for the Labor Secretary that blackballed non-union contractors targeted by labor organizers and blacklisted non-union employees in the private sector from working on taxpayer funded projects. Such regulatory favoritism limits freedom in the work place and raises the cost of doing business.
