Glenn Beck takes us on a trip down memory lane – and makes the point that the far left man Obama really was, (and still is) was right there for all to see before the election:
Half the problem, imo, was that the media refused to play up his more radical statements.

I’m sure the President had every reason in the world to believe that the press would not call him out on such blatant lies as “If you like your current plan, you’ll be able to keep it.” or “I have never said I was for a single payer plan.” And true to form, this has largely been the case. They have been far to busy filling the airwaves and print columns with their “expressions of concern” about the people who were showing up at town hall meetings with their elected officials and expressing their outrage that they would even consider foisting this crap sandwich down our throats. It was was too easy to take administration officials and some members of Congress at their word that these righteously pissed citizens were actually shills for big drug companies and insurance companies, rather than people who actually took time to read the bill and and realize that it was not what was being promised. And a strange thing happened. The people being targeted were not deterred.

As a child in Indonesia, Barack Hussein Obama was educated as a Muslim. Whatever shifts in religious allegiance he may have made later in life — and we should remember that an aspiring politician will often make such a shift to increase his political palatability — that fact is indisputable. And this fact is equally indisputable: It is Islamic doctrine, written into the Qu’ran and reinforced by various ahadith, that lying to an “infidel” in service to Allah, to Islam, or to fellow Muslims is morally licit, in certain circumstances obligatory.
Combine that bit of Islamic teaching with left-liberal politicians’ characteristic readiness to deceive us benighted ones in service to “the greater good.” Then stir in the enormous self-importance of Barack Hussein “I Won” Obama. What do you get?
Do you get the sense that Obama, a supposed Christian, takes seriously the Eighth Commandment’s proscription of false witness, or that he lives by the spirit of the Second Great Commandment, which stands behind the majority of the original Ten?
Do you get an assurance that Obama, committed by his own words to transparency in government, would never dream of emitting a falsehood from behind the Great Seal of the United States?
Do you imagine that Obama, who has openly stated his desire for a “single-payer” health insurance system in the United States, who becomes enraged at challenges to his statements, and who has dispatched union goons to suppress protests against the Democrats’ health-care ambitions, can be trusted on this or any lesser subject?
No, I don’t either.
Here’s what the actual policies of this administration are–and yes, there are only two real ones: to foment chaos—the type of chaos which would require a little-s savior—and to reduce escape options. And the subsequent policies of that savior–the ones not yet evident; the ones which we can only guess at–will indeed stop the chaos from progressing.
While we don’t know what these policies are yet, there is one thing that we can be pretty sure about: this savior’s yet-unknown policies would clamp down on big-L Liberty so tightly that none of us would recognize the United States in which we live at present. At that leads us to the raison d’etre, the ultimate goal: the seizure of absolute power. And that is the objective, the long-term goal. All else is secondary.
