Obama should have saved his breath
Ok, so we’ve heard from obama pursuant to the debt ceiling. But what did we hear? Did we hear leadership? Did we hear commonsense objectives to address the spending crisis? The answer to those questions is no. What we did hear is obama’s same old blame and obfuscation game covered in a veneer of feigned willingness to work with republicans.
The debt ceiling did not tip toe up on Congress or Obama. Democrats have yet to pass a budget this year and the new budget obama submitted was more like the Christmas list of a child with no fiscal constraints. Yet Obama continues to send veiled messages of it’s his way or no way.
We need leadership at this moment from both sides of the aisle. We cannot continue to spend and raise taxes as a method to reduce debt and create prosperity. He is responsible for trillions of dollars in debt, yet his only solution is raise taxes, while offering pretentious spending cuts as a faux display of fiscal restraint.
We know he is listening to us that’s why he gave another press conference today, even if it was intended to bully Republicans. I personally know he is very much aware of my columns and your supportive following. He specifically mentioned his tax deductions, something I have been very critical of him over.
If he is so disturbed by the rich not paying their fair share, why doesn’t he lead by example? Wouldn’t he have more credibility, if he were able to say he could have taken the advantage but didn’t and he is calling on others to follow suit.
Congress and Obama are lining up to stick it to us. I was particularly insulted when Obama called all of us ignorant and unable to understand the debt ceiling. And that is exactly what he did when he said only professional politicians can understand it, and we should just pay attention to going to work and watching television. That we should let the pro’s handle the economy because it was beyond our ability to understand.
Well, I tell you what “Mr. Best Selling Author” as you referenced yourself during the press conference, I agree that we should let the professionals handle the debt. But keep in mind that rules you out, because you are obviously lacking and absent of even the most basic financial principles. How dare you speak of saving jobs, when millions and millions of people have lost their jobs directly because of your mishandling and interference in the economy.
