This Is Not Good
Wrong Way Obama
Good Grief! 4th Straight Year?
Every time I hear Obama's teleprompter make any economic speech I can envision our National Debt Clock whirring along. He doesn't know any other way but to continue to spend money we don't have and compound it by raising taxes on the creators of jobs in this nation. The time for decreased spending, reform of entitlement programs and a general overall austerity program to be implemented throughout our federal money-munching monster is now. It is past time.
This is the man who said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half during his first term. For those of you who voted for him, "Has he done that?" That's also all his latest smoke and mirrors budget proposal is also designed not to do. I don't want excuses such as "we didn't know how bad the recession was." That's an excuse because I heard Obama say exactly what Obama said. Listen closely again to what he said in early February of 2009 and then look at his actions and the growth of the national debt during his tenure. The proof should always be in the pudding and in his case it always is. He has failed.
Cut Spending? When?
If "we cannot and will not sustain deficits like these without end..." why is he doing that? Then he goes on "we cannot simply spend as we please and defer the consequences to the next budget, the next administration or the next generation." Is that what he has been doing since he made that speech?
Ever year since then he has run up the national debt tab in excess of $1 trillion dollars a year and this latest proposal will add another $1.3 trillion to our tab. That tab is being passed onto the next generation. You know those people who you claim are so near and dear to you and that you love oodles and oodles. You can't pay it, I can't pay it and all those millionaire and billionaires he wants to raise taxes on can't pay it either, so take that rant somewhere else. If he wants to turn his budget proposal into a campaign speech then I'll use it as an "anti-campaign" speech. This whole thing is nothing more than his attempt to get reelected. I judge a person by his deeds, not his words. He said exactly what he said in that video, or at least what his teleprompter told him to say.
Contrary to the prevailing wisdom that is dancing around in liberal's heads we cannot afford another four years of Obama. We have been paying the price of electing an inexperienced, unqualified person to lead our nation now. The interest we are now paying on our national debt surpasses the "1 in every 10" of our tax dollars to pay the interest alone he cited which is now greater than when he opened his mouth. My question again, "Has he made things better or worse using his voodoo form of fixing problems?"
Next up is his use of federal departments in his form of reasoning. Use some logic here. Three times more than this and seven times more than that. Besides the fact that he has increased the size of the money muncher by 17%, what has he done about those useless departments in our government? Since he has increased the national debt by $5 trillion, and counting, in just over three years have those numbers increased or decreased? Has he done what he said he was going to do? If we were in a crisis back then has he elevated the crisis level even more? Has he saddled our children and grandchildren with our debt even more than before? You know those folks you just love oodles and oodles.
Sure it wouldn't be easy Obama. But you failed to deliver then and you're failing to deliver now. I call it the "empty suit syndrome." The man doesn't have the experience to run a lemonade stand much less the largest economy in the world. Other than to spend our tax dollars he doesn't know anything about economics, economies or how to run anything except his mouth. That wasn't kind to say was it? No it was not nor was it intended to be. I'm just speaking the truth as I did when he sucked people into electing him.
A Nation Running On An Empty Suit
The difficult decisions can wait until you leave office, right Obama? The challenges we face will be exacerbated by your lack of leadership in dealing with the underlying problem. Is that what I heard up there in that video Obama? The underlying problem is that we are spending ourselves into a hole in this nation and you just want to keep picking up the shovel. So as you point out so eloquently it will require that difficult decisions be made. You have proven that you are not up to the task of making those difficult calls. You're more interested in your own political skin than you are in the overall welfare of this nation and those children and grandchildren you don't want to continue to saddle with more and more excessive spending. You know those children and grandchildren you love and adore oodles and oodles?
I'm sure you heard him say at the end of his empty words that his administration was taking responsibility now (February of 2009) to get our spending under control. Is that what he has done? No, he played the blame game, will continue to play the blame game and wants to blame everyone but himself.
No He Does Not. He's Not Done. He's Toast!
I started this out originally with the thought of slicing and dicing his budget proposal to pieces but then started writing and when I reviewed that video one more time I saw very clearly where my words were going to take me.
He said all of that in February of 2009. He has failed to do any of that. In fact, he has done just the opposite of that. So that's okay for the person charged with running the greatest nation on earth to run it into the ground? I think not. I don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican or a liberal or a conservative. It's not okay to keep running on a flat tire and Obama is just that.
He has not even attempted to get our spending under control. He lied.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL!
