Obama Calling "Bluff" Of Those Complaining About Debt He Created
Realclearpolitics ^ | Sunday June 27, 2010

Posted on 06/27/2010 4:19:45 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

President Obama on controlling the debt: "Somehow people say, why are you doing that, I'm not sure that's good politics. I'm doing it because I said I was going to do it and I think it's the right thing to do. People should learn that lesson about me because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real and how much of it was just politics."

Typical KGB canine unit training, with Obama as a mouthpiece. The communists are trying to train us, Obama is only a tard puppet repeating techniques and discreet jagged legal papers here and there.

Next time a government agent acts cute on me, trying to train me with his uniform or attitude or ideology, I am getting ready to shooting to kill in self defense.

The problem with liberals is they want to cut federal spending on items that the constitution requires the Feds to handle, like national security, foreign diplomacy (including negotiations with Native American tribes), war, etc. while increasing spending exponentially on items the Feds have no right spending money on such as the "war on poverty", education, health care, etc.

Things to cut:

Immigration
FBI
CIA
Military
Federal highways
FAA
Aid to Israel

He'll cut these things and pretend shock when Republicans hint that perhaps other areas ought to be considered.

The guy uses a skiploader and digs nonstop for months, then looks at the hole and tosses the onlookers a teaspoon and says “hey, you fill it.”

He means that when he tries to usurp people’s Constitutional freedoms in the name of “austerity” , he dares anyone to say anything. He thinks hes putting people in a corner where if you don’t agree with HIS choices to make cuts, you can’t propose your own ideas. Same as with Healthscam-it was either his reforms or no reforms.

Wow. Such a statement shows how impossibly ignorant the child POTUS is. He has as much a grasp of economics and business as an average 5 year old.

There’s no bluff to be called, Zero, except the joke that is your presidency.

Anyone with a half a brain will realize what a stupid response that was. Now we know why Obama will not show us his grades.

We were in debt, and his solution is to create even more debt. Yeah that will work. I can spend my way out of debt. LOL! What a joke! I can't believe this guy is president.

Let's zero out the federal line items for any spending related to

a) Obama's salary

b) any of his cabinet and staff's salary

c) all foreign aid except to Israel and a few other proven friendly countries

d) the U.N.

e) ALL Congressional and Senate salary and staff

f) Planned murderParenthood g) the EPA

h) the Dept. of Education

i) NPR

j) the IRS

How's *that* for "difficult choices" you teleprompter-dependent wuss?

Cheers!

It’s not about America and the economy to Zero, it’s about his petty ego and poltical power. I can’t believe we have a psychopathic narcissist running the country based on the needs of his ego and his petty spite and vengeance.

It’s a convoluted way to try to invert the criticism about his spending....first of all, never acknowledging it is his spending that is killing the economy—but saying “hey, if you’re so worried about the deficit, time to shut up and walk the walk...” in other words ante up to my coming tax increases to pay for MY political agenda that you didn’t want.

We are not only held hostgae by this thug, we are being openly raped and mocked now.

Someone with a 5th grade education can predict what he will propose:

CUT..CUT...CUT the military...CUT NASA...GIVE to welfare...RAISE taxes...

Liberals are predictable

Any common sense person could cut 12.5 pct of the size of govt each year for the next 4 and reduce the size of govt 50 pct in that time. It would be easy to find half of it in waste that would make the other 6.5 easy.

Saying Obama is driving up the nation deficit to unimaginable and unsustainable levels isn't a bluff, it is a fact. Now rather he sees it as good “politics” or not is immaterial...it is very bad economic.

Obama is increasingly irrational. He is not only NOT a leader. He is not even aware of his shortcomings. The dangerous part of this man is his absolute commitment to his ideology.

Independent voters in America have given us the first Marxist president (coz they got him elected).
