The Sword of Damocles Hangs Over Obama’s Head – Support Speaker Boehner’s Debt Ceiling Bill!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Do I like it? No.

Do I want Cut Cap and Balance? Yes.

Will the Democratically Controlled Senate pass CCB? No, already voted it down.

Will Obama cowboy-up and do a deal for the good of the country like Big Dawg did? Uh, No.

Will the GOP be blamed for the fiasco that follows if we do NOT pass the Boehner bill? Why yes, yes it will.

Will the Reid modifications to the Boehner bill cut the cuts and pump the spending? Of course!

Do we get #BBA votes from the Boehner bill? Yes.

Will Senate Democrats PASS a BBA? Probably not.

Will it help DEFEAT said Senate Democrats up for re-elect in ’12 to force them to vote against a BBA? Hell yes. Every commercial should shout that McCaskill etc voted AGAINST a BALANCED BUDGET.

Are we in a position to make SERIOUS CUTS and/or SERIOUS REFORMS while Obama is POTUS? NO. We saw that in his pathetic response to the Ryan Plan.

Did Speaker Boehner try to do a ‘Grand Bargain’ with Obama? Unfortunately, yes he did. And hopefully he has now LEARNED HIS LESSON. You cannot ‘negotiate’ with the Tabula Rasa.

Does Speaker Boehner’s Plan leave room for another ‘Grand Bargain’ attempt? Yes it does. This is the only way to stave off the S&P, Moody’s downgrade.

(Yeah I know the ratings agencies are a joke, their idiotic Prime ratings on MBS junk loans got us into this mess but that is beside the point. They made it clear if there is a ‘commission’ meeting someplace they won’t downgrade the debt, even if said commission is just another exercise in futility.)

Was Obama ‘selected’  by TPTB TBTF to be the ‘Democratic’ POTUS to gut SS and Medicare? Why yes, that has always been my theory.

So why didn’t he do the ‘Grand Bargain’? Because he is an inexperienced naif who cannot even carry out a ‘signed, sealed, delivered’ bargain when he has the script.

He is Zelig- the chameleon man. He changes to reflect whomever he is with. One meeting with Pelosi and he rolled over on Entitlements without Tax Hikes despite having Geithner there to ‘handle’ him.

Will there be a Grand Bargain while Obama is POTUS? I hope to hell not. If the GOP gives it to him, he will run on it. He wants to be Reagan.

The guy is just what he appears to be: a narcisstic empty suit devoid of any principles. (Webster’s lends a hand-  A principle  is a general and fundamental truth that may be used in deciding conduct or choice)

With hard work and a little luck he will be the One-Termer the TBTF bought and nothing more.

So how ’bout we push past this latest Obama Leadership Failure, pass the Boehner bill and then work HARD to make SURE the GOP does NOT give Obama any ‘Grand Bargain’ to run on.

Anyone who thinks we are not gonna cut SS, Medicare is really self-deluded or naive at this point. I suggest liberals spend their time working on the House cuz we WILL be doing MAJOR ENTITLEMENT REFORM with the new GOP POTUS in ’13.

I am for the Ryan Plan. Gen X knew we were getting fragged, let’s just go into it eyes open and try to protect our parents and kids from the worst cuts and tax hikes.

TGIF!! G20 Debate – Should the Government Stop Dumping Money into a Giant Hole? (Obama says no!)

With the economy sliding deeper into a recession, panelists discuss whether it’s time to stop throwing our money into a massive pit out in the desert.

The REALLY sad thing is this is Obama’s position at the G20 this weekend, -keep spending!- says Obama! he is upset with the Europeans who have decided to STOP dumping money into the giant hole…note The Onion produced this satire in November 2008 and the Keynesian argument has not changed at all, it never will..they never admit defeat just prescribe MORE spending…ENOUGH.

More than $860 billion in stimulus spending enacted last year has failed to move the nation’s jobless rate much below 10%, and polls show Americans question its effectiveness. The federal deficit reached $1.4 trillion by the end of last year, its highest level since World War II….

…Mr. Obama sent a letter this week to G-20 members urging them not to withdraw support for growth too quickly. It was rebuffed two days later by European leaders.

“Europe is determined to ensure fiscal sustainability and achieve budgetary targets without delay,” reads the letter issued Tuesday by European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso. “There is a need for credible medium-term fiscal policy strategies to bring down deficit and debt ratios….

HILARIOUS!: …”Obama goes there looking pretty good—except that we’ve got [in absolute terms] the largest deficit of any country around the world,” says Fariborz Ghadar, a scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington….

Boehner nails it: …”The president is going to have a tough time convincing the other G-20 countries that even more ‘stimulus’ spending is the answer when more Americans believe Elvis is alive than that his ‘stimulus’ created jobs,” House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio said Thursday….

Obama and Dems creating hostile environment for job creation and investment say Obama supporters Business Roundtable

Another great moment in stating the obvious brought to you by some of the SOOPERGENIUSES that gave us Obama:

WashingtonPost:

The chairman of the Business Roundtable, an association of top corporate executives that has been President Obama‘s closest ally in the business community, accused the president and Democratic lawmakers Tuesday of creating an “increasingly hostile environment for investment and job creation.”

Ivan G. Seidenberg, chief executive of Verizon Communications, said that Democrats in Washington are pursuing tax increases, policy changes and regulatory actions that together threaten to dampen economic growth and “harm our ability . . . to grow private-sector jobs in the U.S.”

“In our judgment, we have reached a point where the negative effects of these policies are simply too significant to ignore,” Seidenberg said in a lunchtime speech to the Economic Club of Washington. “By reaching into virtually every sector of economic life, government is injecting uncertainty into the marketplace and making it harder to raise capital and create new businesses.”…(go read it all!)
