Barack Obama’s budget has looked like a Midwestern girl with jeans on that are three sizes too small.
Can you say “Muffintop!?”
America is busting at the seems, fat and broke. Yet, Obama wants to spend more.
He calls spending cuts, “mindless austerity,” and these are just cuts in the GROWTH of budgets! What would this moron do if we really cut spending?
The same guy who chastised Bush for our debt and his uncontrolled spending, has spent almost a trillion dollars a year MORE than Bush, and has a national debt that has doubled on his watch.Those are excellent credential for asking for MORE money, if you live in Delusional, USA!Here is how it was put here:
Declaring an end to “mindless austerity,” President Barack Obama called for a surge in government spending Thursday, and asked Congress to throw out the sweeping budget cuts both parties agreed to four years ago when deficits were spiraling out of control.
Obama’s proposed $74 billion in added spending — about 7 percent — would be split about evenly between defense programs and the domestic side of the budget. Although he’s sought before to reverse the “sequester” spending cuts, Obama’s pitch in this year’s budget comes with the added oomph of an improving economy and big recent declines in federal deficits.
“We need to stand up and go on offensive and not be defensive about what we believe in,” Obama said. Mocking Republicans for their leaders’ newfound interest in poverty and the middle class, he questioned whether they would back it up with substance when it mattered.
It is said that Republicans promise to produce a balanced budget blueprint this spring,though there are concerns about military spending.
Even more interesting were comments made a couple of Republicans.
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, dismissed the Obama proposals as “happy talk.” That’s what you say of your deranged 100-year old Aunt, and I must say, I was refreshed to hear that Cornyn said this of Obama, and in that way.
Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania chided the president for “abandoning spending discipline.” Abandoning? Obama has never had spending discipline, so that comment is baffling. But again, at least Republicans are not sitting idly by.
Obama doesn’t want to believe the Nov ’14 election results, so he pretends the election didn’t happen. If he ignores it, it can’t be real.
This lame duck will soon be giving America our foie gras, when we gut him.
