A little story over at Breitbart (“Obama to offer own debt reduction package” 0918/2011) said that OWEbama is “preparing his opening bid on long-term debt reduction.. This may sound like an auction, but since it is OWEbama, it’s a gamble..
The usual suspects were all out and about beating the bushes and trying their best to deflect and distort.. “Administration officials see the task of attending to deficits as necessary but not necessarily urgent compared with the need to revive the economy and increase employment..”
Let’s try not to forget for just a moment that OWEbama “OJ’ed” both the economy and the idea of employment here in America.. Let’s try to, but I know that it won’t be easy.. For someone from the “administration” to say that the OWEBAMA deficit is “not necessarily urgent” is the equivalent of an Engine House during the Chicago Fire racing off to Peoria to put out a barbecue pit.. I love how the liberals like to act as though they don’t understand the economic “Democratic Dominoes” that they have been toppling and how they effect EVERYTHING that they come in contact with when they fall..
“The White House also sees this as the time to draw sharp contrasts with Republicans..” Even the mildly observant can draw “sharp contrasts” between the fellow travelers and the Republicans. “Sharp contrasts” within the liberal lexicon means “It’s election time and it’s time to separate people while calling ourselves ‘unifiers’”..
Here is the last part of the quote from the last paragraph, “whose public approval ratings are lower than Obama’s..” Maybe when these “approval ratings” are taken from places other than homeless shelters, Methadone clinics and bus stops, the numbers might be a bit less skewed to the Dark Side..
Now is the time for fiction to meet fact. “When Obama announces at least $2 trillion in deficit reduction measures Monday”, he WON’T mention the nearly $2 trillion in tax increases that will be along for the ride.. These foggy and mysterious “deficit reduction” measures will be written in “Jethro Bodine Double Naught Spy” invisible ink and the tax increases will be carved into socialist stone..
“I would view this as the president’s vision for how we achieve deficit reduction..” So says White House socialists shill Dan Pfeiffer.. I would match the “president’s vision” up against Stevie Wonder’s any day of the week.. I’ll bet that Stevie can balance HIS checkbook.. The “president’s vision” CREATED the deficits that others are left to deal with. Tough guy Hussein was just content to “kick the can down the road” just a short time ago and the result was the “historic” OWEBAMA downgrade..
Out come the policy wonk words of wisdom, “the plan represents an economic bookend to the $447 billion in tax cuts and new public spending, a short term measure to stimulate the economy and create jobs..” Again there is NO PROOF of ANY “tax cuts” and when the liberals start talking about “short term” this means, “up until the first Wednesday in November..” The liberals need to start thinking about as far down the road as they “kicked the can”, not just until 2012 election..
Here is where the liberal’s favorite Zyklon B is administered. “A minimum tax rate for taxpayers earning more than $1 million..” Once the door of taxation is forced opened by the liberals, they insist upon trampling everyone even though their “intent” was to “tax the rich”. Funny things seem to ALWAYS happen to the “numbers” once the liberals achieve such a cancerous concession.
As the left calls it a “tax on the wealthy”, the right sees it properly as a tax on the middle class (as well as the OBVIOUS tax upon those who PRODUCE jobs..) and balks. “Republicans have pledged to oppose any increase in taxes..” This is where the “class separation” progressive ploy gets its introduction and it ambles in from stage left to a rousing round of applause from the knuckle draggers of the leftist voting base.. “Taxing” the job producers is MORE IMPORTANT to OWEbama than “creating jobs”, period.
“Democrats are waiting to see what Obama proposes to do with Medicare, the government health care program for older people..” I am more concerned with what OWEbama “proposes to do” with Medicaid, as EVERY “beneficiary” of THIS program votes Democratic.. As well, what would the Democrats do? Invincibility enshrouds OWEbama as even the head of the “Black Caucus” said, “If Obama wasn’t the president, we would be marching on the White House”. (The Hill dot com) Democratic double standards, you could knock me over with a feather..
Former (points for sensibly abandoning the liberal listing ship..) OWEbama Economic Adviser (she did such a great job “advising” about the economy, she should have actually been hung..) Christina Romer said, “potentially raising the retirement age for Medicare is something that deserves a lot of consideration..” Why? “Such an increase in the eligibility age is more conceivable with Obama’s health care law because guaranteed private health insurance would be available to middle class early retirees starting in 2014..” Mandatory meetings with “Death Counselors” will apply as well.. The truth? “Two thirds of 65 and 66 year olds would pay MORE for their new coverage than they would have under Medicare..” OWEbamanomics for Dummies..
“Overall, the president’s proposal could help reduce long-term deficits by about $4 trillion..” This coming from the same Democratic dolts who were surprised by the “economies soft patch”.. Please note the key word.. “Could”, not “WOULD”.. OWEbama takes two years creating “historic” deficits, now he wants to be “loved” as a hero vainly (how else does OWEbama do things?) trying to fix what HE broke.. (“If you love me-if you love me, you got to help me pass this bill..”)
Former Clinton adviser William Galston said that OWEbama “has generated a problem for himself by giving the appearance of not being forthcoming enough with regard to his own fiscal plan..” OWEbama “generated a problem for himself” by spending like a typical undermedicated liberal, he has “not been forthcoming” about ANYTHING so that isn’t a surprise to anyone.. OWEbama gave up the “appearance” of being “forthcoming” the moment that he declared his candidacy for the presidency..
“The White House considers passing the jobs bill far more pressing and Obama has been looking for every opportunity to bring it to the public’s attention..” No kidding.. They will try anything to deflect attention away from the logic that if it weren’t for OWEbama and his economic idiocy, there might not need to be the necessity for a “jobs bill” in the first place..
The Dems say don’t cut this, the Repubs say don’t tax that, OWEbama says nothing and he is the hero.. He has set BOTH sides up to bicker, while he is “above the fray”.. He is the “Maverick”.. (How well did that end up working for McCain?) This is ALL about OWEbama getting re-elected. He is striking out on his own..
FINALLY. He’s been “striking out” since January of 2009, and today all that matters is that the “Teflon Totalitarian” manages to keep the blame for HIS messes from somehow “sticking” to him.. He simply doesn’t care who ends up stained with the residue of his recklessness, Republican or Democrat..
