Same Old Tired Obama Failed Talk … Barack Obama Blames Bush, Wars, Tax Cuts and Those Pesky Corporate Jets for Debt Problems



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 …

      Even with the compliant MSM constantly attempting to make
      a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, Obama is looking very bad. The
      ‘word’ to describe his reign is ‘Fail you’re’!

      I sat around for 8 yrs while Bush bankrupted this country. You expect for someone in 4 yrs to undo what that baffoon did? Take a reality pill and point the finger at the selfish republicans and their billionare buddies that could give a rats ass that they are working the average american into a early grave. Get over it.
      SM: Get over it? Funny words from a person who defends a President who can’t take responsibility and ownership of his job. It would appear that Obama is still blaming Bush.

      LOL, “selfish republicans and their billionare buddies that could give a rats ass that they are working the average american into a early grave” … Guess who hires you and those average Americans? Early grave??? Take a good look at those death panels in Obamacare dude.

      It is really sad that some of you actually buy into class warfare. I am hardly a billionaire, let alone a millionaire, but I do not have hostilities to those who are. Some of you need a reality check and rid yourself of the envy, it is really ugly and will get you no where in life.

      [...] what was the reaction to Obama’s speech? It was purely partisan and meant as a campaign speech pandering to Independents with poll tested buzz words like balanced approach, compromise and even [...]

      All I can say about the speech is, O! BUMMER!

      Well said OhPuulese the Obama administration is still cleaning up the mess created by 8 years of ignorant W. spending and an economic crisis.

      Not more than fair that large corporations and the richer few chip in too.
      SM: Do you people really believe the dribble you write or do you just like going around misinformed? Just curious, where was the Democrat Congress stopping W’s spending? I thought the Congress controls the purse strings?

      Comparing W’s spending to Obama’s is like comparing a LLadro to a Picaso.

      So you sat back and watched W’s spending for 8 years, what did you do the past 2+ years watching Obama’s spending even more?

      #2…same old tired left wing libtard mantra….

      The fact of the matter is you can not point to any facts where Bush “bankrupted” the country…

      The Bush tax cuts worked in the years they were implented and how funny you forget that he had a record 52 weeks of straight job growth. Unemployment was around 5%…people were buying land rovers, escalades, flat screen televisions; etc…

      It’s also funny how you point to Bush bankrupting the country; when in fact; in his last two years; he GREW government; the same very concept you libtard pukes push; more expansive government!!!!

      You idiots couldn’t get out of wet paper bag!!!

      Bill Clinton; in two years; changed the course of our nation by WORKING with the Republicans and as a matter of fact; implemented Republican ideas that saw job growth at a rate not seen since Reagan; and I’m not a Clinton supporter….

      The fact is this is Obama’s economy now; he’s the one that passed the $1T stimulus; the $1T healthcare law; which have all led to unemployment rising as high as 10%; now at 9.2%; but far worse in reality. His policies are the ones that in place NOW and they are failing and idiots such as yourself can not stand it.

      He’s added more debt than all the Presidents combined before him and with failure. He has made things worse for everybody including blacks as their unemployment rate has increased since he took office.

      Get a clue and get some facts before blabbing your tired and UN-ORIGINAL libtard talking points that you get from you buddies at that failing and fledging company called NBC.

      Clinton had a republican congress, Bush had a democratic congress, Obama had a democratic congress and senate and STILL could not get it right. What does that tell ya?

      Obama’s temper and ego seem to get in his way. He does not need to prepare for re-electioning to happen. A man(if that’s what you want to call him) with absolutely no experience in finance or even a clue on the economy. To him, “Oh running out of money”, Oh just print some more”. Why has he gotten away with so much!

      Obama’s met none of his promises. But to blame him for the entire debt isn’t fair.

      The Bush tax cuts were supposed to spur the economy, they didn’t. “Trickle-down” economics have now failed twice in my life time. The cuts did nothing but add a trillion dollars to the debt. It’s true that the top 1% pay 40% of all taxes — but it’s also true that they rake in 40% of all income.

      We started and continue to prosecute two wars, with no increase in revenue (taxes) to support those wars. I support both wars, but think the American public should put some skin in the game and fund the wars through some kind of tax. We can’t ask our military to risk their lives if we can’t pitch it a few dollars.

      The Medicaid benefit plan signed under Bush was also an unfunded and ongoing expense.

      The $700 TARP bail out (Bush) actually worked — it kept the banks from failing. Still that money is all debt.

      Sadly Obama has done his part. He’s failed to end the wars as he promised, failed to turn back the Bush tax cuts, and been lame at getting the facts out.

      We need a complete overhaul — the only real way out of this is to repeal Bush’s tax cuts (back to the levels under Reagan), put a limit on Social Security, and get out the Middle East as quickly as possible.

      Things are never as simple as they seem.
