Letter: White House full of fabrications

It turns out none of the health insurance horror story strewn by the White House is true. This is not only true as far as health care is concerned but with just about every policy this administration touts.

The truth is that the U.S. has the natural resources to be entirely self-sufficient in energy. We just have goofballs making policy to spend money on special interests, while our gas prices soar to ridiculous levels. The administration approved sending $4.5 billion in stimulus funds to one lucky publicly traded green company (First Solar) that contributed significantly to the Democratic Party. First Solar’s shares had plunged from $170 in March down to $115 in June before they got their “lucky” loan bailout.

Then there is how the White House officials reacted to the breakdown in budget talks. They scolded Republican Whip Eric Cantor’s, R-Va., “juvenile behavior” after Obama petulantly stormed out of debt negotiations. Karl Rove got it right about Obama when he declared, “He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.” We are the passers-by.
