Obama On Debt: I Had A Deal That 'Would Have Solved This Problem'
cnsnews.com ^ | 8-15-11 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 08/15/2011 1:33:25 PM PDT by Justaham

President Barack Obama told an audience on the first stop of his bus tour that his original deficit reduction plan could have solved the nation’s debt problem “tomorrow” but House Speaker John Boehner walked away from the deal.

“The fact of the matter is that solving our debt and deficit problems simply requires all of us to share in a little bit of sacrifice, all of us to be willing to do a little bit more to get this country back on track and that’s not too much to ask,” Obama told a crowd in Cannon Falls, Minnesota on Monday.

I'm surprised our side (those already in Congress not running for President) is not out there giving out rebuttals.

John Boehner is so weak.

Is this the brilliant plan that the Senate voted down 97-0?

Obama is such a predictable bore these days ... also, why isn't this sort of rhetoric while traveling outside of DC considered a campaign event?

His original deal: a “clean” rise of the debt ceiling. Such a deal!

At this point it seems pretty safe to say that Obama is a pathological liar -- he truly believes his own lies, all physical evidence to the contrary. He really does. Borderline and narcissistic.

We've seen this before (e.g.: Al Gore and his "global warming' religion), but it's a disturbing pattern when such mental cases keep finding their way to the highest offices in the land.

The fact that Boehner and McConnell haven’t been heard from since their celebration dance tells us everything we need to know. If Boehner was a leader, he would have come out immediately after the deal, and would lay out why the deal falls short of our needs, and why things will never improve with a Democrat Senate and WH.

Thanks Justaham.
...his original deficit reduction plan [sic] could have solved the nation's debt problem
It involved massive tax increases and other "revenue enhancement -- and NO CUTS.

I been very frustrated that Republicans didnt do a better job exposing this lie, I have another sourced post on it I am finishing up and will post.

If Obama EVER agreed to significant entitlement cuts he would get a primary challenge. If put on the spot MOST Democrats in congress would reject it. Entitlement cuts are to these (House progressives) liberals what tax increases are to most conservatives and Obama was bluffing.

The man lies as easily as he breathes.

He's had a lot of experience in lying according to one I.R.S. examiner.

"Barry still could not get a real job, because he was still a fraud, even with his Harvard degree in hand he could lie and take the Bar exam, but he could not work as a lawyer for a major law firm without a back ground investigation and he would never pass one. So, Michelle got Barry a job at her law firm. Barry never filed a case alone and never filed a motion. He wrote lots of memos according to the law firm where Barry worked. (I think they know Barry is a fraud and don't want to be sued by previous clients) Barry rescinded his law licenses, so as not to be disbarred for fraud. The Bar knows Barry lied on his application. Michelle also had to turn over her law license for her involvement in corruption with the Chicago mayors office. "

“We’ve seen this before (e.g.: Al Gore and his “global warming’ religion)”

Very bad example. Gore doesn’t believe in it any more than you or I do.

Evidence: Massive house, outbuildings, and gigantic electric bill that went public sometime after the election.

He travels in fleets of SUV’s to any event, including the ‘warming’ ones.

There is much more evidence if you look, but Gore doesn’t believe it for a second. He definitely believes he can SELL IT, but he’s not a buyer.

Or he believes the surah in the Koran that says it's acceptable to lie to infidels in order to forward a righteous cause.

It is hard to believe that this guy is under 40% in the polls with dynamic speeches like that. I also see that they failed to mention that the Loser in Chief generated a paltry 500 people to the event. This guy is dead man walking.

This bus tour will go down as a total bust.

This guy is so full of Sh*t.

Quote Obama:

“The fact of the matter is that solving our debt and deficit problems simply requires all of us to share in a little bit of sacrifice”

Unquote

A $14 TRILLION dollar debt won’t be solved with a LITTLE bit of sacrifice. When do we start sacrificing the entitlement class and not the Middle class.

What we need to do is cut 1 Trillion dollars this year and 2 trillion next year, and go from there.

His plan just kicked the can down the road.It;s time we stopped kicking and started picking that can up and getting rid of it.

He is still spouting that class war BS about screwing over Millionaires and Billionaires, when who we really need to start cutting are those who do not work,have not worked in years and have no intention of working as long as the Government is paying their bills.

Make the tax’s so that EVERYONE over the age of 18 pays some portion of what they get even if they get it from the Government in the form of entitlements.

This man is not trying to help America grow. If he were he would know the simple answer to our problems.

Stop every regulation he has passed in the last two years and stop every regulation that hurts business including the ADA regulations, and minimum wage.. Start drilling for our own oil and build automobiles that people want to buy, not little death traps. Deal with business that wants to move to another country help them stay here, if they refuse , inform them when they move the tax on their crap will be exhorbitant.
