Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama comes up with new plan on how to tackle debt problem

And by “new plan”, I mean a new speech that says the exact same thing he’s always said: raise taxes.  From Jen Rubin:

Obama had all weekend and the best he could come up with was a reiteration of his plea for a “balanced” approach to deficit control. That’s right. We have a tumbling stock market, over 9 percent unemployment and a flight to gold (some investment advisers say it will be at $2,500 per ounce by year’s end). All he can do is promise to raise taxes.

Now that’s not exactly right. He did trot out proposals for a one-year extension of the payroll tax cut and extension of unemployment benefits. And he promised to make his own proposal to the debt committee. That’s it. It is what he has been saying for what seems like forever. He has nothing new.

Note he still offers no formal plan.  He has put nothing in writing.  He hasn’t even given an informal plan, really.  Just “we need a balanced approach with modest reductions in Medicare spending”, or something to that effect.

Basically, here’s a general timeline of how this has transpired:

Paul Ryan:  I’ve got a plan.

B.O. and the Dems:  No.  We’re going to go tell the American people that your plan sucks and that we need a balanced approach.  But we’re not going to release a plan of our own.

House Republicans:  We’ve got a plan.  Cut, Cap, and Balance.

B.O. and the Dems:  No.  We’re going to go tell the American people something else.

House Republicans:  Oh yeah?  What might that be?

B.O. and the Dems:  That your plan sucks and that we need a balanced approach.  But we’re not going to release a plan of our own.

John Boehner:  I’ve got a plan.

B.O. and the Dems:  No.  We’re going to go tell the American people something else.

John Boehner:  Oh yeah?  What might that be?

B.O. and the Dems:  That your plan sucks and that we need a balanced approach.  But we’re not going to release a plan of our own.

House and Senate:  We’ve got a bill.  Sign it, Mr. President.

B.O.:  OK.  After signing it, I need to address the American people.

House and Senate:  OK.  Out of curiosity, what are you going to tell them?

B.O.:  That this bill sucks and that we need a balanced approach.  But I’m not going to release a plan of my own.

S&P:  We’re downgrading America’s bond rating.

B.O.:  THAT does it!  You’ve left me no choice!  There’s only one thing left to do!

The world:  What might that be?

B.O.:  I’m going to tell the American people what needs to be done to rein in this debt mess.

The world:  Finally!  What is your plan?

B.O.:  This debt problem sucks and we need a balanced approach.  But I’m not going to release a plan of my own.

If you tell yourself a lie often enough, or if you live in a fantasy long enough, you convince yourself of a reality that doesn’t exist.  That’s where ObaMao is right now.  He keeps talking about raising taxes (which he playfully calls “a balanced approach”), knowing full well it isn’t going to happen.  But he keeps talking about it, as if it were going to happen and that it’s just around the corner.

  1. Instead of raising taxes on the producers in this country, how about we get that 49% who pay NO taxes onto the tax rolls.

  2. He still refuses to let go of his plan to drive this nation into the hole and “transform” it into a euro-socialist country. At his peril he refuses to face the fact that we are not europeans and will not go peacefully into the hole.
    He may get what he deserves, along with all the rest of the liberals.

  3. Europe is experiencing the complete failure of Socialist policies in every country…and yet our idiot president is hell bent on taking us down that road. Only a complete moron would seek to be like Europe today. Just sayin……
