Obama’s Teachable Truthiness Moment

President Obama blames Republicans for the collapse of his latest government jobs bill. But in the end, he has only his tall tale-telling tongue to blame.

After hyping the TARP, Obamacare, Stimulus I and EduJobs spending behemoths as economic saviors, Obama just couldn’t help overselling his half-trillion-dollar American Jobs Act. The teachable moment of “truthiness” for this taxpayer-subsidized scam came last week when Obama made an unwitting Boston teacher the botched poster child for his campaign.

“Hundreds of thousands of teachers and firefighters and police officers have been laid off because of state budget cuts. This jobs bill has funding to put a lot of those men and women back to work. It has funding to prevent a lot more from losing their job,” the Pinocchio of Pennsylvania Avenue told reporters during his East Room press conference in Washington, D.C., last Thursday.

For example, Obama spelled out: “I had a chance to meet a young man named Robert Baroz. He’s got two decades of teaching experience. He’s got a master’s degree. He’s got an outstanding track record of helping his students make huge gains in reading and writing. In the last few years, he’s received three pink slips because of budget cuts.”

Going in for the heartstring-tugging kill, Obama lamented: “Why wouldn’t we want to pass a bill that puts somebody like Robert back in the classroom teaching our kids?”

Well, for one thing, Obama never “met” Baroz. They were in the same place at one point for a jobs bill rally at the Rose Garden in September. But the two never shook hands, never took photos, never spoke and never communicated with each other in any way that might be even remotely construed as “meeting.”

Which would help explain why Obama got the most basic fact about his sob story wrong: Baroz doesn’t need Obama’s jobs bill to “put him back in the classroom teaching our kids” — because he already has a job. As the Boston Herald reported, Baroz “works as a literacy and data coach at the Curley K-8 School in Jamaica Plain, analyzing MCAS data and applying it to teachers’ everyday lessons.”

Let me spell that out again for the reading comprehension-challenged: Baroz doesn’t need Obama to redistribute other people’s money to get him a job. He already has one.

White House press secretary and former Time magazine journalist Jay Carney attempted to gloss over Obama’s crystal-clear whopper about having met Baroz and his transparent insinuation that the teacher would benefit from passage of the bill:

“The president — as you know, he was in a group of people that were — I think he was this close to the president as you are to me. And the president knows his story. … I mean, it’s just indisputable — as we found out again this morning — that all around the country, teachers are being laid off. The president has a plan to solve, OK, or to address that problem. … So I think the principle is just indisputable, as Mr. Baroz himself makes clear.”

How would Carney have reported on such narrative-stretching spin when he was covering the Bush administration for Time magazine?

Obama’s tall teacher tale is of a piece with the rest of his economic stimulus fables — from the Ohio bridge he stood in front of that wouldn’t see any jobs act money until 2015, if ever, to the thousands of promised construction jobs that would only go to a sliver of union-exclusive projects, to the pie-in-the-sky green jobs funding for weatherization projects that have mostly benefited Obama cronies.

All the little lies serve the larger Obama fraud of endless Keynesian intervention as a “cure.” It’s a deception even Senate Democrats refused to whitewash: “If spending money would solve our problems and crisis in America, we wouldn’t have a problem right now because we sure did our share of spending money in the last few years,” West Virginia Senate Democrat Joe Manchin said last month in casting doubt on the doomed Obama jobs bill. “It’s just common sense to me. If some of the recommendations that are out there hadn’t worked in the past, why would we do them over again?”

For his part, as an Obama true believer, the teacher Robert Baroz is excusing his hero’s fabrications because they serve a supposedly higher truth: “To me, the question he posed to the people was a rhetorical question. The emphasis was on ‘like Robert.’ It’s people who are like me, highly qualified, and are not working. That’s the spirit of it.”

Egad. If Baroz uses the same logic in his “literacy and data” coaching methods in the Boston schools, perhaps students would be better off without him.

      See how that works idiot. Now I hope this is a lie but now you need to prove that it did not happen.
      I can say factually however, you are a troll, go hide under your bridge, as everything Michelle said is easy to prove as fact! Well if you can read it is easy to prove. :)

      Obamavitch, please don’t raise Daves status to that of an azzhole. He’s nowhere near that good.

      As far as what went wrong in his life, I submit that nothing went wrong other than he was born stupid.

      You can’t fix, or cure, stupidity. That is a fact borne out by the numbers of idiots who voted zer0bama into the highest office in the land.

      We can negate this stupidity and ignorance. Get out to the polls in November 2012 and VOTE zer0bamas’ fraudulent, lying, anti-American, pro-communist butt out of office.

      I’m betting that this gets “moderated”.

    Should we be supprised that Obama is yet again telling lie’s to all of us.His whole term so far has been just one lie after another.There are a whole lot of people that need to wake up.

  • http://newt.org Diane Winkler

    Let’s see. The states can’t pay the teachers because the teachers pay their union dues to the unions that force the states to pay the teacher’s health care and pensions. So the taxpayers pay the teacher’s benefits and now Obama wants taxpayers to pay the teachers’ salaries too.

    • barbpatton

      Round and round the merry go round the monkey chases the weasil.. The teachers think they are being protected by the corrupt unions and are too stupid to see that, and then they look towards high and mighty hussein to help them. If I was a teacher I would home school a few children in my home in the proper way thereby circumventing all the B.S. that is going on.

      We already do! State and federal taxes pay teachers to work and receive $300.000 in retirement money.

    FROM THE WASHINGTON POST (Not a typo….It’s REALLY from The Washington Post):

    The Washington Post

    August 18, 2011 Obama: The Affirmative Action President by Matt Patterson (columnist – Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

    Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

    Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”) ; and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator.

    And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

    Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal:

    To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberaldom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass.

    Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass — held to a lower standard — because of the color of his skin. Podhoretz continues:

    And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

    Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon — affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

    Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist.

    Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin — that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is. And that is what America did to Obama.

    True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the nextstep, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary. What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks?

    In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people — conservatives included — ought now to be deeply embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth — it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

    And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

    In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.

      Dave, then you truly don’t know what an educated child is – as an employer I can factually attest to the fact that most high school graduates cannot even complete an application or employment, either completely or with any logic.

      And God help them if they must complete it in a handwritten manner, which one cannot read, or with the proper spelling or grammar.

      Take away their computer, spellcheck and their calculator and they are completely lost.

      Public schools have become nothing more than ‘social integration clubs.’

    • http://x Washington22

      dharper……I am convinced that at this time in our history, the ONLY way that you can be sure that young impressive minds {our precious children} are properly taught, is to HOMESCHOOL. There are no morals, values or ethics in public school, except for those taught by liberal-educated teachers from their liberal/marxist/communist professors who taught them. It is absoulutly frightening. All of this nonsense about sex-ed, gays and lesbo techniques, etc………….Why? Why are we instilling our children with filth? If parents want their minority of children educated this way, then they should “opt-in” for it, NOT the other way around.

    • John

      I am a retired teacher, and I agree with your comment 100%. The pathetic thing is that schools have lost sight of their primary responsibility to teach students to function at a level where they will be learned, productive citizens. Sadly,most high schools have become little more than sports social clubs, a place where students can make a drug buy, find out where the next blowout party will take place, arrange a premarital sexual tryst, or just screw off. If I had my druthers, I would require all students to pass standardized tests in math, English, Science, and Computer Literacy at each grade level. If they did not pass, they would be held back, regardless of what the bleeding hearts say. We are not educating our youth at a level that they need, and we are paying too many incompetents huge salaries and benefits to do a shoddy job.

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and by your comments I’m quite sure that you are in fact happy with the state of public education.

    Never did hear about this when Jay Carney was explaining it. But from what Old BO has done in the past I would not put it past him. All of Old BO’s true and trusted believers have their heads in the sand and his political cronies too. From the very start during BO’s campaigning I had him covered as a danger to the USA. What I can not understand is the educated following he has in congress when he should have been impeached within the first quarter of his presidency. He is hiding a lot of stuff with a lot of help from the democratic side of congress.

      Harry, I for one, will be marching on D.C. on 11.11.11. (Veterans day) along with many vets and retired miltary (that equates to hundreds of thousands). You can sign up to be bused (or you can drive/fly) at veterandefenders.org or patriotsunite.org. I,
      myself, will be carrying a big “IMPEACH”
      sign! We, as conservatives, need to stand up to Obugger and his crooked regime. I proudly served this nation for 28 years as a Soldier in the United States Army, and have never witnessed so much corruption in the WH.
      Obugger has done such a bad job as the
      “first black president”, that I think he has crumbled the road for any future black candidate (who may actually turn out to be another Ronald Reagan) and that, my friend, is very, very sad.

    • James C.

      Thank you Barbara, I’ll be seeing you there. I have been asked to speak at the rally and that I will be doing. God Bless America. Please keep posting the event. I do it every day. We need millions of patriotic Americans who are fed up to show up, if they don’t show up or support in some small way then they need to shut up.

    • Obamavitch

      So, if I cannot attend and cannot afford to send money, you are telling me to shut up? You do not wish the encouragement which comes from those less fortunate?

      Let the 11/11/11 march be the beginning of TAKE BACK AMERICA. For too long, too many have been to considerate, compassionate and too concerned with “seeing” from anthers’ point of view. Time to discard the PC BS! It has made America a most deprived, immoral, perverted society. When a bunch of PC perverted, depraved, EVIL masked as humanitarian endeavors. Fundamental transformation (destruction from within) of America has taken many insidious, incremental tactics: Drug Culture, Sexual deviance as normal, multiculturalism, unique form of destroying all demonstrations of patriotism, outlawing faith, usurping parental authority- when a Board of Education (NY) can decide to teach pornography disguised as health/sex education and tell parents they cannot opt out- then it seems if any action/time called for a parental class action suit, this is the time. America has been passive and used as a patsy for too long. America must become active. We can take back America. Keep the faith and the conversation going.

  • k. shields

    This guy reaches into his bag of lies anytime he wants to.

    The truth is he is trying anything to push through his payback to the teachers union. When it became clear his jobs bill would fail miserably, he tried to get this portion passed on its own, a $30. billion giveback to re-hire teachers. An inane idea: school districts all around the country have made changes, now work with less teachers, and there is no crisis, no discernible diminution in education of our children. And if we hire them back, this bill pays for them for this year, and then what? We lay them off again, or do the teachers then hope Obama will win re-election and make another “jobs bill” gift to them again? We don’t need more teachers; we need better teachers and less union-led manipulation.

    • http://x Washington22

      k. shields, when I went to school we had 60 students in one room, both 7th and 8th grade were in the same class room. Our teacher was Sister Marie Terese. You could hear a pin drop at ALL times. And we LEARNED. When I left that school for the 9th grade, back to public shcool, I was two grades ahead of the others. This balooney about too many students for one teacher is such a lie! The liberal teachers don’t have the know-how or the authority to manage their class rooms. Our schools are in trouble for many reasons, not the least is the liberal teachers!

      The use of sarcasm and irony indicates an elevated intellect or, at least, reflects a fairly good educaton. The intent is, usually, to express the opposite of what is said.

      Sarcasm definition:

      A form of irony in which apparent praise conceals another, scornful meaning.
      For example, a sarcastic remark directed at a person who consistently arrives fifteen minutes late for appointments might be, “Oh, you’ve arrived exactly on time!”

      Socialism play /ˈsoʊʃəlɪzəm/ is an economic system in which the means of production are commonly owned and controlled cooperatively; or a political philosophy advocating such a system. [1] As a form of social organization, socialism is based on co-operative social relations and self-management; relatively equal power-relations and the reduction or elimination of hierarchy in the management of economic and political affairs.[2][3]

      Is this how you describe Europe?

    • Patriot and an American

      Daves … you really need to get tuned into the real world. An interesting read for you would be “why governments of men do not work” The read the Bible, you will find the truth about some systems still present here on earth that would help you, but then might not! You’re hopeless.

    BHO needs to stop using his examples. I don’t think he has gotten any of them right. The press finds his mistakes each time. It makes him look (if possible) even more ridiculous and dishonest.

  • voteright2012

    Such is the plight of “Government Socialist Education” where prevarication is more important than facts. Obama & the mainstream media have more baloney than 535 meat markets; more BS than 14 Trillion BULLS.

  • IQ 180

    This continues stream of lies and NO Accountability from the White House has reached a level of complete lake of credibility beyond even I could have imagined even 2 years ago. Obama and Administration are nothing but a JOKE…!!! And the American People know IT..!!! If Obama wasn’t doing so much damage to this Great Nation it would be one of great jokes of the decade. God Help US, and God Bless America.

      I think the correct word is Pathological Liar. They have a mental problem as to when they tell a lie, they actually believe it themselves.

  • CHRISTOPHER

    What else can be expected when the manipulated “public” vote puts an illegal-alien in the White House. You voted for a fraudulent, forgerer foreigner (of very uncertain heritage) as POTUS. Surprise, Surprise….!!!!!!!!!!

  • IdontBrakeForDems

    My experience with unions is like this: We attend a trade show in Atlantic City every year. If we ship a (example) 20 lb box of literature to the convention center to hand out at our booth, UPS charges about $12. to get that box all the way across the country to the convention center. BUT, then the union wants $100. to deliver that box to our booth. So 1,500 miles it traveled for $12. but the final 250 feet will cost $80?! The union even dictates that I can’t even plug in my laptop once I arrive, the union has to do it (for a large fee) it’s rediculous and nothing but a racket. It’s like organized crime if you ask me. We need unions like this like we need a hole in the head.

    • ChillaKilla

      IdontBrakeForDems — I will concur with you statement. We too attend trade shows that are essential to our survival as a business. The problem is that there are several of them in various parts of the country, such as Sacramento, WA State, Oregon, TX and PA, and each one of them costs us double because of union rules and restrictions.

      For instance: our trucks cannot be loaded or unloaded by our employees; the electical set up and laying out of carpeting and lighting is done by union guys, as is the take down. And yes, the cost of operating necessary equipment, such as computers inside the facilities is prohibitive.

      Bottom line, the use of union people is basically a mugging. All it does is rob us of an additional 10 to 20K per year which we could use to buy necessary space for storage and improvement in our own facility.

    • kyl

      Unions ARE the proverbial “hole in the head”!

    • sckaren

      I worked in a Federal School (UNIONIZED) where the custodian refused to flip the power back on in the circuit box that was in HIS room saying, “It’s not in my contract.” A teacher had to walk past him and flip it so we could resume instruction with light. The secretary refused to speak to the principal, and several of the unionized teachers did little other than think of grievances to file, knowing that some would pay off eventually. It was sickening.

  • Paul

    I bet if states like California, New York, and Massachusetts could fire bad teachers or teachers who have been put on probabtion for various and sundry issues… they would have the money to hire good teachers. But they can’t… and so we have thousands of teachers in California and New York sitting in rooms not teaching and getting paid thanks to weak state governments and too strong teacher unions.

    Increasing numbers of Democrats are recognizing Mr. Obama is a one-trick pony: Spend other people’s money and it is not working any more. That they are defecting, or just sitting out, is what is killing him in the Senate where he has a majority. Some “President.”

    Wow! Can that Obama guy lie or what? It seems tht everytime he opens his mouth another lie comes out. Do you know there is a Koran justification for lying to non-believers and Obama is following the Islamic doctrine of ‘taqiyya,” or deception, quite literally. See page 83 of Erick Stakelbeck’s book entitled ‘THE TERRORIST NEXT DOOR’.

  • Darlin46

    We need to vote Obama out of office. VOTE VOTE VOTE. He really need to be impeached.

    I think we need RON PAUL as president.

  • JMJ

    Whatever is on Obama”s idiot-prompter is what he says, so of course, we need someone to fix that machine for Obama not to lie, fib, stretch the truth, make up the truth, etc.. In fact, if we could just pull the plug on his “brain machine” we just might get some peace & quiet. I know, wishful thinking! What would happen if there was no one for Obama to blame for all his blunders? Well Gore blamed that guy with the tie-problem for losing (thank God) the election, so maybe Obama can blame: drum roll, please: Joe (foot-in-the-mouth) BIDEN. Works for me. +JMJ+

    • Patriot and an American

      They are all programmed to lie. That is what they do best. The brainwashing is complete

  • AZ Don

    I do not understand many things about liberal progressive democrats but the one thing that is least understandable is continued support for obama. He has lied, flip flopped, and even threatened the elderly during the debt limit debate. Plus, he has done nearly everything he condemned Bush for when he was running in 2008. And yet the far left and the left in general still support him.

    I’m a conservative leaning independent. I did not vote for obama the first time because he appeared to be phony with his unexplained hope and change thing and his sharing the wealth statement. Although I probably would not have anyway, because I just didn’t like him or his wife after she said for the first time in her life she was proud of her country (that really irritated me, but I’m a disabled veteran so it probably would). His promise of being the most transparent, open, administration ever also made me suspicions (which turned out to be a lie). Coupled with the promise he said every bill was going to be available for examination for five days before voted on, which also turned out to be a lie.

    I and many other conservatives were openly critical of Bush when we did not agree with him. And there were many times we did not. However, I wish someone would explain why so many liberal progressive democrats still support someone who is openly defying the law, like the voter intimidating case against the new black panthers (that was dropped) and the fast & furious gun running debacle where people have been murdered. And attempting to bankrupt this country by increasing the debt nearly five trillion dollars in less then three years.

    Many conservatives did not agree with Bush about the bank bailouts and we let Bush know about our discontent. I did not see any liberal progressives complain about the failed stimulus even after it had failed. And still don’t!

    He is losing much of his independent support and he cannot win without that support no matter what the black population does. His poll numbers among democrats has gone down some but remains close to the same.

    His actions do however, seem to answer some questions. Connecting the dots originally was difficult with obama. It has become much easier lately. Nearly the whole country now knows what he says and what he does have no relatively. But that’s the way it always is with liars.

    • http://x Washington22

      AzDon, in answer to your question about we Republicans sometimes disagreeing with Bush when he was pres, why don’t Dems do the same with Ozero? Probably becasue our side actually thinks and weighs situations, evaluates with common sense and reason……Need I say more? We are willing to critique, not follow “lock-step”, blindly, even if our guy is wrong. Republicans have “right” on their side, clear evaluation, common sense, America loving, Constitution following, and more than likely, Christian human beings, with morals, values and ethics………….There-in lies the difference.

      Most of the people who support him don’t follow the news, read the paper, or even speak English well enough to know any of this, sad to say.

  • Buck

    Lieing is the very least of king Obamas deceites . The man is a fraud from the day of his unfortunate birth right up to date , why else do you think his past is hidden at the expense of millions . After three years in office the only thing the people have learned about him is his level of incompetence or possibly his ability to cover up his level of competence as dismantles the U.S. Constitution .

  • John

    Someday the people tht support Obama will wake up and realize that they were worng and be soory for their support but it’ll be too late. By then the country will be bankrupt, all federal benifits will be cut or eliminated, people will all be alike, standing in long lines fo r abowl of watery soup and so on. I can’t figure out why people still support him after all the lies, hypocricy, double standards, spending, vaations, stimulus programs etc.

      Absolutely Right! Obama had a very good teacher. He is simply taking a play from the Clinton book of scams. Funny how Democrats call Republicans names and belittle their every move. Just to remind everyone, the only President to have articles of impeachment drawn against him, in recent history, was a DEMOCRAT! Yes Clinton belongs to a very exclusive club of two covering the entire history of the USA, doesn’t he? Let’s not forget that fact when Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of these bone heads speak their bilge.

    His jobs bill will do about as much good as his $750B stimulus package did, NFG at all, just got the nation further in debt and make 14,000,000 freeloaders. Obama and that JA treasurer should be in prison as fresh meat for Tyrone while their daughter watch and record the screaming or better yet put the rape on a webcam for the world to watch and if that’s not good enough take them to the Black Dolphin in Russia. Goggle it

      And the other day I read that Obugger is giving black farmers 50 billion as reparation
      for being slaves. What about white farmers? are they not going though the same problems as the black farmers??? Talk about racial divide! Obugger is the king when it comes to the great racial divide! Come 2012, HE will pay for breaking the very heart of our Republic…so help me God.

    The king serpent didn’t plan for an interruption of his campaign to destroy America by the People waking-up a year ago and giving the House of Representatives to conservatives. He was just getting addicted-to a complicit, full-bodied liberal Democrap Congress, too, which supported all his Marxist agenda. Drat! The People trumped the serpent.

  • The Enemy

    Obamastein’s latest “jobs bill” is nothing more than a refresher for his former “stimulus” slush fund. He uses this slush fund and others such as the Solyndra and Sun Power money laundering schemes to keep himself supplied with money to push his Marxism takeover of Americas’s capitalism, and spend on his perpetual campaining. That’s all we need to know about this “jobs bill”.
