Obama – We Need “To Live Within Our Means”…As He Spends Like A Drunken Sailor
Flopping Aces ^ | 03-03-11 | Curt

Posted on 03/03/2011 1:04:35 PM PST by Starman417

The gall of this man:

After he signed the short-term bill yesterday, President Obama said in a statement, “I’m calling on Democratic and Republican leaders of Congress to begin meeting immediately with the Vice President, my Chief of Staff, and Budget Director so we can find common ground on a budget that makes sure we are living within our means.

Saying that this country must live within its means is an audacious statement coming from a president who championed an $814 billion failed stimulus bill, all of which was paid for with deficit spending. It’s audacious coming from an administration that is leading the country into another consecutive year with a deficit over a trillion dollars. And it’s audacious coming from a White House that proposed a budget for the following fiscal year that grows the debt to $20 trillion in five years and never once in a decade spends less than it’s taking in.

Yeaaaah:

And he's not done there....he wants a 62% increase in spending for Transportation.

62%!

Let's see, that's about $93 BILLION/year in new spending over that time. Yet when Republicans proposed cutting a bit more than that across the whole federal government it's draconian. But spending another half billion dollars we don't have? Why that's how things are done, it's for the unions after all.

Oh, that's right....its not spending it's "investing"

Clarification I made the same mistake spends like a drunken sailor. A sailor whom gets drunk generally spend his own money.

Spends like a politician (kennedy) at a whore house.

spends like Odumbo on vacations around the world.

Spends like Odumbo going golfing.

Drunken Sailors sober up and fight for their country. The kenyan doesn’t qualify to clean up a drunken sailors vomit.

What Common Ground MeatHead? Investments are expenditures, Budget Cuts not spending money. Coomon Goround is no new investments , no new spending and living within ones own means.

Okay Odumbo you are on a budget, 1 vacation a year and it must be within the confines of Virgina/Maryland.

1 presidential trip in the world to Iceland on Dec 12, 2011.

No more parties at taxpayers expenses
No more Actors, actresses and professional sports players flown in at taxpayers expenses
no more chefs or fitness trainer at taxpayers expenses.
Limited to 1 ice cream cone and 1 hamburger a month.
Vagetable whatever you can grow at the WH garden that is it, nothing more.

Campaigning around the US, no use of Air Force One, Use your campaign donations for your own campaign plane.

Consider even his personal excesses at the tax payer's expense such as flying in a personal trainer from Chicago, his lavish vacations and the Marie Antoinette like extravagances by Michelle.

Easy on the sailor thing (flopping aces that is) but it’s okay for him to take those overseas vacations he so badly needs, eh?

He has no shame.

Of course not, he is incapable of shame. He is NUTS.

If I walked into my bank and began making demands and attempted to spend what I did not have on a scale equal to my means the way bammy is attempting, the bank would have the cops there in about two minutes.

The cops would then lock me up for psycho evaluation. Which I would promptly flunk if I kept up the insane remarks.

But our little bammy in chief? Oh no, he is proclaimed to be "brilliant."

The President is N-U-T-S.

He dont need shame.Who in the MSM is going to shame him? They give this clown a pass on everything. No one dares to call him what he really is: A marxist Muslim whose only aim it is to dismantle everything good about America.
