“There Is No Pork In This Bill”

Posted in politics by roving on February 26, 2009

This is what Obama has said a few times. Just one of many many lies Obama has uttered since his career in office. We all have an Obama in our life. Be it at work or someone we know. We listen to them while nodding our heads or goad them on into telling even bigger whoppers. Then as soon as they leave the room, we make fun of him or compare the biggest lie the person has told.

Some of what is not pork that is in the recovery package via America’s Right

    Looks like Obama is paying his debt to Hawaii for covering up his real Birth Certificate. Hawaii is raking in the pork. Amazing when you think about it.
