The hypocritical Obama Share the Responsibility tour … More talk of responsibility from the Golfer in Chief.
According to the White House web page, President Barack Obama plans to head out and lecture the American people on fiscal responsibility, spending and cutting the deficit. Obama will do this by telling America that it is patriotic to pay more taxes. This coming from the President who has done little to show fiscal responsibility or cutting the deficit. Instead, he has spent like a drunken sailor.
This week, President Obama focused on fiscal responsibility and cutting spending to reduce the deficit, while continuing to invest in education, clean energy, and American infrastructure.
But wait, in typical Obama fashion, as he is about to lecture “WE THE PEOPLE” on responsibility … he takes time for yet another round of golf. Sacrifice and responsibility, eh Mr. President? Obama’s answer to get out of a recession was increasing government spending, which has failed. Now his failed response to his spending is increase taxes. America, before you say tax the rich, you might want to take a look as to who the government considers rich and who employees you. Who is to say, you are not next to be asked to do your patriotic duty of a tax increase?
This is Obama’s 64th time out on the links as president. The 2011 season is off to blistering pace. It’s his third time out in the last three weeks and his sixth time out this year – and it’s not even May.
Do not forget, as the Lonely Conservative reminds us all, ”you cannot balance the budget on the backs of the rich alone. But don’t expect him to tell you that.”
