Obama tells Leno he was stunned by AIG bonuses

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Lie # 1: President Barack Obama told Jay Leno on Thursday that he was stunned when he learned of the bonuses that bailed-out insurance giant AIG was paying its employees.

Lie # 2: But Obama staunchly defended Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who’s increasingly come under fire for failing to block the bonuses.
“I think Geithner is doing an outstanding job,” Obama said. “He is a smart guy. He is a calm and steady guy. I don’t think people fully appreciate the plate that was handed him.”

Truth # 1: Obama spoke with little interference or challenge from Leno, who clearly was enthused about snaring the president as a guest and pronounced it “one of the best nights of my life.”

Truth # 2: Obama is still campaigning for the job of President. The White House scheduled the appearance as part of a broader outreach to promote Obama’s agenda — one that’s already had him on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” this week and includes a “60 Minutes” interview airing Sunday, plus a prime-time news conference Tuesday.

Lie # 3: “‘Stunned’ is the word,” Obama replied in a taped appearance on “Tonight.” He said he found it hard to fathom how anyone would accept lavish payments in those circumstances. “People just had this sense of entitlement. We must be the best and the brightest.”

Look who is talking about entitlement. Obama has enacted the largest spending in U.S. history and the largest in entitlements.

His arrogance and hypocrisy is beyond belief. Obama campaigned for two years saying he was going to be the messenger of “Hope and Change”. Obama was going to change how things are done in Washington. That is Lie # 4.

Obama is cracking jokes on a late night comedy show with Jay Leno and doing a bit on ESPN while the country is reeling in a financial crisis. So he’s really out in California just to boost his approval ratings. Unbelievable. Where are the cries for his impeachment!

Message to President Obama: Stop being Campaigner-in-Chief and start leading as you were elected to do.
