Obama’s “Argument Techniques” Show That We Have A Child As President (Guest Post)

There are five reoccurring techniques that Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama uses when he wants to end an argument that he knows he cannot win with facts. Or if his argument responses are not on TelePrompter. They are:

  • invocation of a straw man
  • there cannot be intelligent disagreement with him
  • declare that there is nothing to argue about because everything is going well as he defines “well”
  • saying that nothing remains of arguments against his arguments
  • just out-and-out tell (and repeat) a lie

Invoke a Straw Man – “They said nobody would sign up.” Obama said that while celebrating the ACA sign-up numbers. But Obama neglected to specify who “they” were or are. Plus, no one said what Obama claimed. How does one intelligently argue against a totally fictitious straw man?

No intelligent disagreement – This is and has always been an Obama specialty. Obama said that opposition to the ACA is about him not two minutes after saying that arguments about the ACA “aren’t about me.” Obama also said “… states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite” because expanding Medicaid involves “zero cost to these states.” Obama is partially correct – the federal government does pay the full cost of expansion for the first three years. But (and there’s always a ‘but’ when Obama is involved), after the first three years, states will pay up to 10 percent of expansion costs. And that 10 percent figure could increase as Congress deems more federal spending necessary by imposing more burdens on the states. How does one intelligently argue against someone who flip-flops, then ignores the entire reality by selectively choosing argument points?

Nothing to argue about, all going well – Obama insisted that the ACA is “working” on seven separate occasions. His definition of “working” is, at best, ambiguous. Sure, it’s working because he said so. But the ACA is a net subtraction from the nation’s well-being. How does one intelligently argue against an ambiguous definition?

Nothing remains of arguments against his arguments – Obama has said on several occasions that the argument about the cost and benefits of the ACA is “over” and “settled.” Just like AlGore and climate change. How do you intelligently argue with someone who declares an argument to be over and declares himself to be the winner?

Tell a lie – Obama famously said “If you like your doctor (or your health plan, or insurance), you can keep your doctor. Period” That statement turned out to be a lie. And Obama repeated the lie regularly. How do you intelligently argue with a liar? And with the MSM behind him, it’s like arguing with Dr. Josef Goebbels.

These are exactly the same “argument ending” techniques used by CHILDREN. And we all know how successful, enlightening, and refreshing arguing with children can be.

    We are dealing with a spoiled brat who apparently always got his way AND was helped along the path to success even if he did not meet the grade, (can anyone say affirmative action to the highest degree)?

    Additionally, he was largely elected by the same type of people, spoiled brats who had most everything given to them!

    I still say that obama is a babbling fool when he doesn’t have his TOTUS. Without them, he can’t talk intelligently. He doesn’t have to be intelligent, since he is just a marionette for his puppeteers. He doesn’t make ANY decisions on his own. He knows that the propaganda media are ALWAYS on his side, so he can say and do whatever he wants, and they will go along with it.

    O/T (This is MOOoochelle’s baby)

    The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) came up with the recommendation that America Should Adopt a ‘Plant-Based’ Diet.

    It is not about health but about Agenda 21 and ‘Sustainability”

    I hope Dr. John can write a decent article on this idiocy.

    On top of that is this article: Hospitals to begin monitoring your credit card purchases to flag ‘unhealthy’ habits
    What you buy at the grocery store, where you live, and even your membership status at the local gym are all subject to a new data collection scheme by the American medical system….

    Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS), which operates some 900 care centers throughout the Carolinas, has teamed up with a data-mining company to compile and track this information for the later purpose of calling “high-risk” folks and urging them to make a change…

    So between Obummercare and the Food Safety Modernization Act. The tyrants in DC hope to have complete control of what we eat.

    So go tell these would be tyrants what you think of their intrusion into your life!

    Also pass this on to who ever else you can think of. We need to tell these Globalist to get out of our lives and our country.

    …….

    This load of Bovine Feces came straight out of the mouth of Maurice Strong:

    In 1992, As Chairman Strong told the UN conference at Kyoto…

    “It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”

    The same propaganda was repeated by WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy…

    “climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared… Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? “
