Obama: The GOP stuck me with the tab for a steak dinner
Hot Air ^ | June 12, 2012 | Erika Johnsen

Posted on 06/12/2012 4:52:18 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot

He. Cannot. Be. Serious. And yet, he is. If this doesn’t qualify as playing up the intellectually cheap, populist, class-warfare rhetoric, then I don’t know what does. He’s not just decrying ‘tax cuts for the wealthy’ (a.k.a., here, the Bush-era tax cuts) as a paltry route to prosperity, he’s throwing in a steak-and-a-martini metaphor to really classy it up!

(snip) “Those of us who have spent time in the real world understand that the problem is not that the American people aren’t productive enough,” Obama said during a fundraiser today, after saying that Romney believes that America “automatically” prospers when the wealthy profit. “[Romney says] his 25 years in the private sector gives him a special understanding of how the economy works, [so] my question is why are you running with the same bad ideas that brought our economy to the brink of disaster?” … The president also said that Republicans, not Democrats, caused the current budget crisis. “I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!” he said. Obama compared Republicans to a person who orders a steak dinner and martini and then, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”

He inherited a Trillion dollar deficit and ran it up to 6 Trillion while flying all over on our dime and visiting every golf course on military bases around the country.

This fool is living high on the hog on our money. That is his economic plan.

The debt he inherited occurred as a result of a hundred years of liberalism. But that is history. The question is what are the results of the economy and debt during his 4 years in charge? He will get pummelled on that question and he can’t escape.

Apparently this jacka$$ forgot that Pelaosi was holding court when he was selected. She and Reid ran the circus until she was ousted.

It has been a liberal circus since 2006. Obama, Reid and Pelosi are the trio of destruction.

Even if they had, it isn’t YOUR money, you ignorant,affirmative action RaceMarxist.

Neither you or your infestation of incompetent Ivy Leaguers are on the hook for the past generation of insanely irresponsible big government spending.

At some point, he's going to start talking about our colony on the moon, and how the start-up costs are responsible for our deficit, but how it will also create 50 million jobs in the next 6 months.

And Chris Matthews will swoon and not say, "Waaaaait a minute----!"

Excellent question. Answer - nobody who lives in the real world, which would include BO.

Sad to say most voters memories are not that long......they need to be reminded, often.

Right,

>>> Obama compared Republicans to a person who orders a steak dinner and martini and then, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.” <<<

Gotta tailored to their audience, tho. Those guys ‘slurped’ it all up.

"I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!”

True...you also inherited gasoline at an average price of $1.87 a gallon, and an unemployment rate of 4.6% in 2007 and 5.8% in 2008. But you don't like talking about that, do you Mr. President?

Also someone once said that when you find yourself in a hole, the best thing to do is to stop digging. You not only have not heeded this advice, you have procured explosives and a steam shovel to expedite the process of getting us deeper in debt.

“He inherited a Trillion dollar deficit and ran it up to 6 Trillion “

Obama took Bush’s order for a rib-eye then added double orders of foie gras, Beluga caviar, Dom Perignon, and Wangu filet to the tab.

I agree. Obamas choir believes every lie he throws their way. The liberals are so blind they wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them in the face. The only thing they believe in is PARTY OVER COUNTRY.

The Associated Press
WASHINGTON —

Wagyu beef in black mole sauce with grilled beans is on the menu for Wednesday's White House state dinner.

The four-course meal will open with a salad of jicama with oranges, grapefruit and pineapple, followed by herb green seviche of Hawaiian opah. The main course of beef will be accompanied by black bean tamalon.

A chocolate cajeta tart with toasted homemade marshmallows will be served for dessert, along with a graham cracker crumble and goat cheese ice cream.

The White House released the menu details several hours before the dinner.

Obama wants to talk steak??? What a maroon!

Then he orders truckloads of caviar and champagne and keeps blaming the previous guest at the table.
He will leave an enormous bill for the next guest for sure.

Obumbo says Bush gave us the Prescrition Drug Program,Fine,Conservatives were against that,and at the time if you remember The Democrats,AARP,were all Howling how Bushs Plan did not go Far enough, Did Not Cover anyone,it was too Confusing,in other words the DEMOCRATS wanted it to Be Larger than it was, cover more People ,spend more Money,not less.So that one policy that according to Obumbo was Not BIG enough and has Caused all the Economic woes he is Facing.Not FDR, Not the Great Society of Johnson,Clinton and a Congress controlled by the DEMOCRATS for Decades and TRILLIONS in transfer Payments to END POVERTY and Give everyone free houses, NOOOOOOOOOOOO,its the 4 years the Republicans had a Slight Majority in the Congress ,then the Party of the PEOPLE stole some elections and got a Veto Proof Majority and Solved all the Problems,They could Pass ANYTHING with not one vote from Republicans. So what did they do, they took over Health Care,FREE HEALTHCARE for everyone whether you Like it or Not,Free Abortions,freee colonoscopies,free Breast examsetc.,except of course if you have a Job,then you get to Pay double to pay for the FREE care for everyone else.
I sure dont want to go back to those old Policies that NEVER worked
