Did The Big "O" Really Say That?

Updated on June 14, 2012

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!

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      "Or was it the American Public who was foolish enough to believe him?"

      Absolutely. You are spot on. We voted for Carter and Bush and Clinton and Bush again. Foolishness is as foolishness does.

      PDX - While I understand your position about Romney, I know that this election is not one where a protest vote should be cast. This is too important for even one vote to be wasted. One just may as well vote for Obama because it will have the same effect.

      We started turning this thing around in 2010 and it will take a few election cycles and require that people start paying attention to what these people we send to DC are doing or not doing. Their attitude, until recently anyway for many of them, is that once they get there they can forget about their constituents until the next election. We need to show them often enough now that we can hire them and we can fire them.

      Frog Prince,

      well written and entertaining. I voted for Bob Barr in 2008 and will likely vote third party again. Romney doesn't do anything for me and I live a state of solid blue, so, whether I vote for Romney or not, he won't win this state. He hasn't even campaigned here.

      To be fair, it's a political tradition to blame your predecessor. I also though Obama was foolish to make so many promises. Or was it the American Public who was foolish enough to believe him?

      He makes me sick! I have no interest in what he says except when someone points out the obvious lies.

      Someone I know in the military actually said to me, "I could tell you things that would make you want to move to Canada"

      That's pretty scary, huh?

      I just know that man is going to swindle his way back in office somehow, I don't know how. He did nothing for four years and he is not worried. Why not? How can anyone like him? Are they blind? I wonder if we have anyone in DC worried about America and a good portion of the US citizens. How can that man get by with so much. It makes me literally sick to even think about that man and know I helped put him there. God forgive me. I sure won't do it again!

      Anti-Obama always gets my votes.

      You wrote, "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." Without sounding like a racist, because I'm not, but hasn't this been the MO of most minorities, especially the black community for some time? Of course they are going to use this to the full extent during any campaign effort. "I'm black, he's not. Consider that when you consider what you think of me, and what you think about the assessment of me." It clouds the truth, shadows it, and as you wrote in a comment in one of my hubs, there are a lot of stupid people.

      As to a comment he made recently to Congress that, "We need to get to work," I just find myself scratching my head. YES, Mr. President. You are exactly right. And we've been waiting for you to get started for three effing years already!

      He ISN'T an accountable president. It's clear that he wants to be president, but does NOT want to do the work of the presidency. He is as full of a sense of entitlement as anyone. If it's not one more reason to get him out, I don't what is.

      Stu - Are we watching the same Fox News? If what you say is true about news stations how do you explain Fox still showcasing Krauthammer...

      and O'reilly has nothing good to say about O'bama - look what Hannity does to him every night (and they're both Irish just like O'bama). I think Beck just wanted to do his own gig and I see Napolitano on several Fox shows practically every day!

      The sick reality is that Obama has nothing to run on, but far too many people don't see it. A major problem is the MSM. The centrist/liberal outlets don't want to point the realities out, and I can't prove this, but I believe there is a warning that has been given to TV news stations that certain subjects are not to be covered, under punishment of broadcast licence non-renewal. This is the only explanation I can come up with for FOX pushing out Glenn Beck and Andy Napolitano, who were the most direct of the FOX anchors in complaining about the Obama ideology and his acts. Such censorship has very broad implications, because many of the large circulation daily newspapers and weekly news magazines are owned by the same companies that own TV stations. If these companies get out of line in their print publications, the broadcast properties could be at risk of being shut down by the FCC as retaliation. It's gotten so bad that the MSM is almost worthless. The only place I can get real news from anymore is the internet (WND, Human Events, Heritage Foundation, etc.). Anyone who is relying on the MSM for news really has no idea how incompetent and crooked Obama actually is.

      According to that pesky Constitution, The President submits a budget, Congress approves it. Let's not allow our Senators and Representatives off the hook, either.

      I've gotten to the point that I seldom pay any attention whatsoever to what Obama says...except for the gaffes that make Fox News. But I do keep spot-checking his daily disapproval poll as reported by Rasmussen.

      What I find most interesting in Rasmussen's daily tracking poll is the CONSISTENCY of the President's ratings. They remain remarkably stable (within a certain range), and far enough to the negative side that when it comes down to bedrock, I don't see any way he's going to slip past the People again on Election Day.

      Frog, you have an uncanny way of getting where the rubber meets the road. When you "come back" you do it in style!

      Most of the "recorders" that post the news are as big a liar as "The Anointed One". He actually believes his own press.

      I still like the character "Max Headroom" (circa 1985-1987) when he asked about a politician, "How can you tell if he's lying"? His answer, "His lips move"!

      If it weren't so totally tragic it would almost be comical to attribute this to the POTUS! I swear that sometimes I wouldn't believe him if he was asked in the middle of the afternoon if the sun were shinning and he said "yes".

      I have only met one narcissistic personality and that was in the 7th grade. Never knew what that was until Barack! You must elaborate some day on how you know them so well.

      Even one-trick ponies can do one trick right, Frog. I guess B.O.'s trick is running up more trillions in debt than any other president. Wait, he has two tricks. The other is blaming everyone else.

      I agree with breakfastpop - his arrogance and smirking make me crazy as well. He actually makes me want to commit violence at times and I think its going to get worse. You hit the nail on the head with the narcissism and fingerpointing.

      I heard part of the speech and I had to turn it off. The arrogance of his words, his beefed up dialect, his smirking presence all served to drive me wild. Up and awesome.
