On March 12, 2013, in an interview with George Stephanopouulos, President Obama reacted to Paul Ryan’s proposed budget, not in a surprising way. The President said Ryan’s budget would “be on the backs of the poor, the elderly and families with disabled children.” Really, Mr. President? Is that the best you can do - the same old rhetoric?
Frankly, I’m disgusted with President Obama these days. I've never been a big fan of his politics - that's no secret. But as his poll numbers once again fall he is again resorting to petty attacks on Republicans and can’t even remain professional and honest in his rhetoric against those who oppose him. His supporters should be ashamed of him. Ryan’s budget was the best thing we’ve seen out of Washington in years. And Obama knows absolutely nothing about budgets and running a country – even with 4 years experience.
President Obama has been using his attack tactics against the Republicans for almost a year now. Sadly, most of the things he has said are smears, outright lies and Democrat talking points that have no substance. He has stated more than once that “Republicans want dirty air and dirty water” and that they force people to choose “between poor kids and disabled kids.” All of these talking points are lies and beneath the integrity of the office of the President. But President Obama really doesn’t care about the dignity of the office except for the large expense account and travel benefits of that office. I truly believe that Obama lives by the quotation from Mel Brooks’ “It’s good to be the king”, from “History of the World, Part 1.” I keep waiting for him to call out “Oh, Piss Boy…” He’s a Chicago political thug who made it big. And it shows.
I would have some respect for President Obama if he showed any concern for the American people. But honestly, the only concern I’ve seen from him is for himself and his re-election – even now, when he’s not eligible for re-election. He’s still in campaign mode – worried about his popularity numbers. Instead of digging in and working to fix the problems in the USA, many of them caused by him, he works to raise and/or maintain his popularity and blames every bad thing in the country on someone else. It’s shameful.
Many of his followers continue to echo Obama’s statements, blaming the Republicans, and even George W. Bush for our current problems – even though Obama is in his fifth year in office. When is this man ever going to take responsibility for anything except Obamacare and Bin Laden’s death? He won’t even take responsibility for his inaction in the Benghazi fiasco. People died and Obama lied.
They say that “only children” learn early to blame other people for things because they don’t have brothers and sisters that can take suspicion away from them if they do something wrong. President Obama exemplifies that and maybe that’s a part of it that he can’t help. He lies to the American people on a regular basis – saying one thing one day then denying he ever said it the next. And even with video evidence, those who worship him will echo his words, regardless of how dishonest they are. It’s quite an amazing phenomenon.
It appears the Democrats might actually propose a budget this year, as required by law. The President says he will propose one but yesterday he postponed that until April. (The last time he proposed a budget it was rejected by his own party.) The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in the first four years of Obama’s presidency but maybe this year will be different. I’m thinking they are getting tired of being attacked for it because it makes them look bad. Then again, Harry Reid doesn’t much care how he looks. He certainly didn’t care how foolish he looked when he got on national television and stated, matter of factly, that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid any taxes in ten years. It seems Harry has no scruples or sense of honesty. He’s perfect for this administration.
The other day Nancy Pelosi went on television and said that President Obama has been the most bipartisan President in history. Really? That same President who says Republicans want dirty air and water, want old people to die and want to cut any and all benefits for poor and disabled children is the most bipartisan President in history? Whatever Nancy’s smoking…. I want no part of. It makes you stupid.
I hope in the next year more and more people wake up and smell what Obama has been cooking. We need a Republican sweep of the elections in 2014 to set up a Republican win in 2016. It’s the only chance we have to avoid a complete fiscal meltdown of the country. Obama has us on the road to be Greece. He keeps claiming to have cut the debt by over $2 trillion but his projected debt by the time he leaves office in 2017 is currently at $20 trillion. And he doesn’t seem to care at all. Obamacare, which he guaranteed would cost only $988 billion, has been re-evaluated by the Congressional Budget Office who found that it will cost at least $2 trillion to implement. Their original estimate was over $1 trillion but after a private meeting with Obama, the head of the CBO lowered his estimate. Now that estimate is twice as high as the original. Tell you anything?
Let’s all pray for fiscal sanity and that the President will develop an actual love for the country and what’s best for her people. If he truly loves America, as some of his followers believe, he certainly isn’t proving it on a regular basis….
