Give the sleazy little mutherfucker points for honesty.
Hat Tip to NewsBusters.
Sharpton, the founder of the National Action Network and talk radio host told Fox News on March 21, during their special coverage of the House of Representatives’ passage of health care reform legislation, this victory for President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would begin “transforming” the country.
……“First of all, then we have to say the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama,” Sharpton said. “Let’s not act as though the president didn’t tell the American people – the president offered the American people health reform when he ran. He was overwhelmingly elected running on that and he has delivered what he promised.”
Despite polling showing otherwise leading up to the momentous occasion of the vote on health care reform, the claim this goes against the wishes of the American people is false based on the 2008 presidential election.
Conservatives, libertarians, and political/military bloggers were screaming about this throughout the entire campaign. When we started digging around into Obama’s background, friends, associates, ideology, and the organizations to which he belonged, his socialist/Marxist/Alinskyite philosophy was right there, in no uncertain terms. Look at all the videos of his speeches to ACORN. Read the information on the Annenberg Foundation. Read the blurbs from his books (ghostwritten by Bill Ayers) which lay out every single premise he wanted to put into policy if he ever got the chance.
Well, he not only got that chance thanks to liberal and minority tools, but he’s putting those into action.
How’s that “change” working out for ya?
