Did The Big "O" Really Say That?
President O'Bizarro Speaks Again...
I never know what to expect to come out of President Obama's mouth next but I always know something will rumble out of his pie hole that puts a highly unlikely spin to the reality that the rest of us live and witness.
I have a leg up on some folks because I understand a narcissistic personality when I see one. I know that in his mind someone else is always to blame for his shortcomings and such will always be the case with Barack H. Obama. As his desperation grows about "The One" (himself) being rejected and leaving "The People's House" I expect to hear more distortions and lies in his attempt to persuade the totally ignorant among us that he still has the answers but has been foiled by the meanies among us.
Just a minor correction I failed to make in my last Hub about something he said in the "private sector" fiasco press conference concerning the White House. That particular house Bud isn't "my White House" as you referred to it. That is The People's House. You are just a temporary tenant.
Here He Goes Again...
So I have only one question for Barack as I begin. How much debt is enough debt on your watch since you have accumulated more than all the rest of them combined from George Washington through Bill Clinton? We're still counting by the way. Now according to the Big "0" the huge deficits that this nation are now facing were a result of the Republicans doing a "Dine & Dash." You know, if this wasn't so serious an issue, the man actually might be funny. Then he wants to rant on about all one has to do is look at the facts and figures to ascertain that none of this he has created is to be laid at his altar. Of course not, he's like listening to Jimmie Carter on steroids.
Need I remind him that he was the one who promised to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term? Has he again forgotten what his teleprompter told him to tell us? He did say that didn't he Obama supporters? The facts and figures I look at tell me that he has run a deficit of over $1 trillion every year since he has sat his fanny in the national CEO chair. All I can say is that if he's speaking to a room of supporters, as he was yesterday, being a comedian again rather than the POTUS then they might take him at his word, and probably usually do.
So Where's The Beef Rather Than The Blame?
His "I inherited" rhetoric gets stale quickly. He's the one who asked for the job and promised to fix Washington DC, not start blaming other people from day one and continue that balderdash throughout his entire term of office. He asked for the tab and has done nothing but continue to run it up since he assumed the reins. The deficit did actually explode when the Democrats took control of Congress in 2007. Facts? He did not one thing to fix the deficit problem. In fact he rolled the tax payer dice and ran it up even more by bailouts and a failed stimulus program and now we're sitting with the result of his failed policies to the tune an additional $5 trillion and counting added to an already stupefying national debt when you took office. That's what I'm looking at Barak, not your empty rhetoric and attempt at comedy to deflect your failures. You've added $5 trillion in three short years to our national debt. That's historic spending!

Yeah, you’re darn right the deficit exploded after Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi took control of a newly-Democratic Congress in 2007, and did you do anything to try to quell that deficit? No, you not only let it continue but added to it with Keynesian economics, and now we’re sitting pretty with a whopping $5 trillion more added to our debt than when you took office three years ago. You will have added $6 trillion before this next election by the looks of the speed the national debt clock is ticking by at. Anyone have a radar gun?
The type of excessive spending we have seen this administration perform is due largely to the Democratically controlled Senate's failure to pass a budget for the entire time Obama has been in office. I wonder why Obama never mentions that "fact" to people while he's out there campaigning for all he is worth rather than tending to the nation's business in the Capitol?
The "Dine & Dash" strategy doesn't seem to resonate with anyone but his supporters and even some Democratic strategists are suggesting that Obama veer away from that message and adopt something a bit more realistic in view of the facts and figures he alludes to.
Who's Picking Up The Tab For The Obama's Party? How About A $16 Trillion Porterhouse Dinner?
No one seems to be saying that Obama is responsible for the deficit he "inherited." What he is accused of doing is, in fact, running up the tab and from start to finish he has achieved doing that all the while pointing the finger at anyone, or everyone, he can place blame on for his own failed economic policies. He'd be well served to listen to those advisers who are telling Obama not to try to run on the economy. He might just want to change the message as his own people are suggesting.
Looking at it realistically I just wonder what he can run on other than placing blame. He's tried the Dog Wars, the War on Women, the War on Christianity, the Bain Capital assault and the list goes on. Lets now look at his record, or lack of it, and use a realistic score card. He made promise after promise to get to the seat he is sitting in now and has failed to deliver. Obama didn't inherit the additional 6 trillion dollars (and counting) that he has added to the tax payer's tab. That was his own doing. It's time to blame Obama for NOT doing what he told us all he could do..
Tomorrow (Thursday) he is supposedly going to deliver an economic "framing" speech to contrast his vision of the nation's economy versus his opponent's vision. Should we expect anything new? Don't bet on it. Obama is a one trick pony whose ideology isn't in tune with the reality of how a capitalistic economy functions. His answer is that the federal government is here to be the fixer. My answer is that the federal government is the problem, not the solution.
Remember In November!
