Chuck Norris: Barack Obama: Spin master

Spin: to apply a slant or particular emphasis to information as to persuade or deceive 

Obama is really pounding the pulpit these last few days before the election with the help of his speech writers. He sounds a lot like Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The only thing Obama hasn’t said is, “God d*** America,” like Rev. Wright did.

Obama has to pound his chest and beat the drum to rev up the Democratic base. Thank goodness, the only thing Mitt Romney has to do to rev up the Republican base, and hopefully the independents and undecided voters, is to talk common sense.

Obama can spin a fact, and even though it’s wrong or untrue, we almost believe it. Then he sends his minions out to spin the same fact, hoping if we hear it enough times we’ll finally believe it. Benghazi is a prime example. Even though Obama knew from the moment of the assault on the U.S. consulate that it was a terrorist attack, he didn’t let the American people know. We recently learned a drone was filming the attack in real time, and our president was watching from the situation room. It is clear that he chose to deliberately deceive the American people, saying the assault was due to a mob protest and blaming it on a video nobody saw.

My wife, Gena – who is a lot tougher than me – and I are fighting mad with all the lies and distortions coming out of the White House. When I film a movie, I can kick the bad guy’s butt. But here, all I can do is hope, pray and vote. So that is what we have to do! We have to get everyone out to vote for the only man who can get us out of this mess, Mitt Romney.

Unfortunately, Obama didn’t have the experience to fix the economy, which he promised the American people he’d do. However, there were two things that would have been easy for him to accomplish. He promised to televise on C-SPAN all new bills presented to Congress, including Obamacare. However, Obama conveniently forgot that promise when his administration cut backroom deals with drug industry lobbyists and during consultations with medical groups, union bosses, insurance industry representatives and lawmakers during Obamacare negotiations.

The following video exposes the true impact of Obamacare:

 

In a second broken promise, Obama assured us he wouldn’t allow special interest groups and lobbyists to influence his policies. However, he has regularly granted exclusive White House access to his biggest donors, who bring their lobbyists with them. In fact, the Democratic National Convention officials urged lobbyists to solicit personal checks from corporate executives and rewarded them with premium credentials and hotel rooms at the DNC. So much for integrity and honesty!

Folks, we’re at a crossroads this election. We can elect a president who will keep us on a losing streak, Obama, or we can elect a president that has the expertise to get us on a winning streak, Mitt Romney. Boy, is that a no-brainer!

I’m a martial artist first and actor second. I am definitely not a politician. I’ll leave that to experienced people like Mitt Romney.

So I’m going to evaluate this election as a martial artist. I am a 10th degree Grand Master and have studied the martial arts for over 50 years, 15 of those years as a fighter and instructor, teaching thousands of students before going into the film business.

I was also able to achieve great success as a martial arts fighter and, through the years of dedication and hard work, became a world champion. Why am I telling you all of this? Because Mitt Romney is that same kind of fighter. With his business acumen, he will be successful in turning our country around for a brighter future.

Like I said earlier, I am looking at this election through the eyes of a martial artist. So I’m going to rank the two candidates running for president. Let me start with Mitt Romney. He is an incredibly successful business man, which means he will focus on job growth and get small business up and running again.

In bipartisan fashion, Mitt Romney was very successful as the governor of Massachusetts.

Romney turned a failing Olympics around and made it one of the most successful Olympics in years.

Most importantly, he and his wife, Ann, donated 30 percent of their income to charity – more than Obama and Biden combined.

So, if I were going to promote Mitt Romney to a belt rank based on all of his qualifications, it would be a black belt.

Now, let’s look at Obama’s record. I’ve already mentioned a couple of his failures. Obama’s failures are even more apparent when we look at his extremely limited background in the private sector and zero experience running a business, which means he doesn’t fully appreciate the following:

1) accountability to American consumers, employees and investors;
2) balancing budgets, maximizing revenue and closely monitoring spending (at the risk of sinking your company if you fail);
3) long hours, hard work and great personal investment with merely keeping a business afloat;
4) intense competition with other businesses in the private market;
5) high personal risk and no taxpayer-funded safety net or bailout if your business flops;
6) a devastating impact on soaring tax hikes and government regulations on your ability to stay in business;
7) a solid understanding of free-market principles and job-creation strategies.

So, after evaluating all of Obama’s qualifications, I would promote him to white belt, as I would all beginners. And I’m sure if, God forbid, he gets re-elected, at the end of four years he will still be a white belt.

Folks, Obama is the chief executive of our great nation. Without a firm understanding of these principles, how can he lead America back from the brink of economic collapse and even more widespread unemployment?

I will admit Obama is a gifted speaker and very charismatic, but he is just not a leader, and our economy will only get worse in the next four years if he is re-elected. I’m not going to bring up all the things he has lied about. All I’m going to say is that a president who is dishonest with the American people does not deserve a second term.
