I have to admit, I am furious today. According to the Washington Times, and other news venues, Obama has now said it would be a good idea to basically provide amnesty to illegal aliens to make the debate on them moot. Joe Wilson, a man who was apparently fed up with this administration, interrupted the President regarding health care for illegals, I’m sure most people know the story. A lot of our leaders have expressed outrage at his outburst. But how many are willing to admit he was right? Here we now have Obama proving Joe to have been absolutely correct by demonstrating himself that he did lie. It is technically true that he doesn’t intend to provide health care to illegal aliens, instead he wants to legalize them and then give them health care. So he didn’t really lie, but Joe Wilson was right. Obama lied. Most of us know what a lie is. It is dishonesty in communication. What a normal, average person would believe from the part of Obama’s speech on Health Care that Wilson called a lie, is that Obama has no intention of adding to the financial burden of the Health Care Bill by paying for the health care of an estimated 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. What it is now apparent is that he intends to do precisely that, he just wants to make them no longer illegal. That means he lied. His words were true, but they hid his real intention. That, for the simple minded people who still believe in The One, is what a lie is.
This is equivelant to telling someone that you will not steal their wallet, then taking it, removing all the cash and credit cards and returning the wallet and then telling them you kept your promise. Obama also said in his speech that although he inherited a $1 trillion deficit, this health care plan will not add to it. Of course not. It will add to the $3 trillion deficit his actions have so far added to that. This man, who is our president, does not deserve uninterrupted speech.
