Same Old Tired Obama Failed Talk … Barack Obama Blames Bush, Wars, Tax Cuts and Those Pesky Corporate Jets for Debt Problems
BARACK OBAMA … THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF. WHAT A SMALL, LITTLE MAN.
Prior to President Obama’s speech I was going to write a cynical post that said the following, why should anyone listen to Obama regarding the debt ceiling debate? He is just going to saying the same old, same old of blaming GWB and playing class warfare. But that would have been cynical.
GUESS WHAT … I was correct. Here is a synopsis pf Obama’s speech … GWB is to blame for the debt, blah, blah, blah, rich people are evil and need to have more of their tax money taken away even though 40-50% of Americans pay no taxes and have no skin in the game … blah, blah, blah … I am just like Ronald Regan … blah. blah. blah. Dude, first of all you are no Ronald Reagan. Second, how can this President not take any of the blame for the out of control spending and debt?
Here is the TEXT of Obama’s actual speech.
As the President repeatedly said the “B” word, balanced, as it was obviously poll tested as being worthy of being said 7+ times in an all but partisan and pandering speech. This was only outdone by Obama continually using the “C” word. Obama stated, “Americans are most fed up with a town where compromise has become a dirty word.”
But wait … BALANCED? Did Obama just say that anything but a balanced approach was a Republican Congress and Tea Party thing? REALLY? Has Barack Obama been paying attention or was this speech written the other day? Is Obama saying that Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s proposal is garbage as well? Reid’s plan was all cuts and no tax increases. I guess Obama thinks Reid is a Tea Party member as well. Why would Obama support Reid’s plan, its not balanced in the least.
The only reason this balanced approach isn’t on its way to becoming law right now is because a significant number of Republicans in Congress are insisting on a different approach — a cuts-only approach -– an approach that doesn’t ask the wealthiest Americans or biggest corporations to contribute anything at all. And because nothing is asked of those at the top of the income scale, such an approach would close the deficit only with more severe cuts to programs we all care about –- cuts that place a greater burden on working families.
What a sad excuse for a President. Obama literally offered nothing new and played the same old games of blaming everyone else. Obama has no plan of his own and can only act as the “President of No”. It’s not very often that the opposition response is better than the initial speech. Tonight was the exception …
