During an interview with WAGA, President Obama attempted to make excuses for his failed promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term in office.

“BECAUSE THE RECESSION WAS DEEPER THAN I THOUGHT”
Much like his BS.
so his stimulus should have solved that
So Obama admits he was wrong about the recession. What else is he wrong about? Possibilities are endless.
OK....so. Let’s say you’re an idiot who says he’ll do something everyone knows you can’t. And as an excuse, you’ll say you were ignorant of something that everyone else knew, even though your job is such that you - out of everyone - should know it first.
How does that explain if you subsequently do the exact opposite of what you said you’d do - several times over - even though you know it to be destructive to future millions of Americans?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
So instead he doubled the deficit, but that is not really fair because CONGRESS RUNS THE SHOW, either way THROW ALL THE BUMS OUT.
He was running as President of the U.S. and had access to the best information possible. So his statement makes no sense. The numbers speak for themselves
He should have slashed the deficit to ZERO because of the recession!!!
Of the few times he was in attendance, he led no meaningful legislation and he just voted, “present”.
OBAMA: I COULDNT CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF BECAUSE THE RECESSION WAS DEEPER THAN I THOUGHT
Finnally...an admission that he was in over his head...
He lies like a rug
Funny, Harding and Coolidge could do it. But they didn’t want to fundamentally change America.
This is why it is so important for the Dems and the media to ensure Newt doesn’t get the nomination. It would put to gtround any notion that socialism works.
OK, the recession was deeper than he thought - because he made the deficit worse, making the recession worse than he thought.
This sounds like circular reasoning to me.
If his mouth was moving it’s a safe bet he was lying...ALL THE TIME. :(
He was running as President of the U.S. and had access to the best information possible. So his statement makes no sense. The numbers speak for themselves”
Of course it makes sense...he was in over his head. ANOTHER piece of the puzzle as to why no college transcripts...he was studying how to overthrow the government, not help it.
Indeed. However, don't members of both houses push the buttons for their colleagues when not actually there, voting per their instructions? Even in that situation, the button "present" was pushed. A sitting senator wasting a seat, biding his time until he could inflict damage from the oval office.
“HE COULDN’T CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF....
..because he’s a lying socialist that intended to hand us over to the GLOBALISTS all along....and he could then be King Obama, Saviour to the Globe.
China needs our minerals, oil, natural gas and farmlands. ‘Nuff said.
If that is the case, he might not have even seen a single day in the legislature.
That rule needs to be rescinded, asap.
Cut it in half? He quadrupled it.
“circular reasoning” (from Obama)
Nothing surprising here.
The community organizer and his cabana boys been telling us for over three years that the reason we haven’t been able to jump-start the economy by throwing money at it is ... because we simply haven’t thrown enough money at it.
You can only milk that argument for about four years.
This is exactly what that racist Juan Williams was trying to say tonight. I guess the libs have their new excuses/talking points for BO’s failures.
From those comments Wreckovery Summer never happened I take it?
“I COULDN’T CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF BECAUSE THE RECESSION WAS DEEPER “
Everyone, please note the word “DEFICIT” used AGAIN (just like before implementing Arbeitsziehungslager) and not the SIZE of the 15 trillion dollar government.
IN FACT, if there were no DEPRESSION (that they are attempting to call a “recession”), they would have INCREASED the 15 trillion dollar government to above and beyond.
The scariest thing I know is that there are STILL people in this country who think Obama is a a natural born citizen, that he is very brilliant, that he is a great leader come to solve the problems of America and he is doing a great job, that everything would be wonderful if the evil Republicans would just go along with Obama, that evil capitalists created the housing crash by forcing poor people to borrow money they could not pay back and they did this out of greed. Once you realize that these people exist AND THEY VOTE, how do you keep from crawling UNDER the bed and curling up in a fetal position sucking your thumb? I avoid doing THAT by sitting on the floor in a corner, rocking back and forth and moaning while sucking on a bottle of bourbon. Well yes, I am acting like a crazy alcoholic but I need the bourbon to kill the pain of sitting on the floor with my legs crossed, at my age it hurts!
Every time he says something like this, I wish someone would call him on it and tell him that he is likely the most unprepared President ever. Everything that happens to this team was “worse that we thought it was”.
Where are the chickensh!t Republicans on this? FUBO. FUJB.
Despite the unprecedented Obama-Biden Transition Project.
It was deeper than he thought because he made it deeper.
The light at the end of the tunnel is from the moving van taking him back to Kenya.
In fact, he was a Senator in the Party that controlled the Senate, right?
Is there one “Journalist” that will bring up Obama’s LAST Government job? Right.......
Claiming that he was so wrong about the dimensions of the recession back then does not do much to increase one’s confidence that he’s correct about anything now......
Short title: My judgement is often wrong.
This is a funny new excuse. How many times during the campaign did the littlest dictator proclaim the economy “the worst economy since the great depression?” 100? 500? 1,000? Was the silly little man not listening to himself?
This putz ran for President Claiming that George Bush Ran the Country into a Ditch.He proclaimed at a Town hall Meeting that what Bush was Doing was Irresponsible,putting our Grand Children in Debt to China by increasing our debt,this has to be stopped. So what did HE do? He has out spent and increased the debt more in 3 years than Bush did in 8 years! Then he has the Balls to stand up in front of the American People and say it was worse than he thought and not ONE question on When Mr. President did you realize it was worse than you thought? Before or after you have added another 5 TRIILION DOLLARS of debt? So Mr. President did George Bush drive us into a Ditch by spending too much money or not enough? Please explain so we can figure out what it is you are trying to do,Fix the economy by Bankrupting the Country,or save it by Bankrupting the Country,and oh yeah what was it again that Bush did,drive us into a Ditch?
I believe this manufactured crisis was intentional and purposeful. The ‘Progressives’ needed this to implement policies for their central planning agenda. They thought that businesses would go along. They thought this would be over by now like all other recessions.
They thought wrong.
His recession wasn’t any deeper than past recessions.
Unfortunately, half the country is stupid enough to buy it.
Newt was pure gold on Hannity’s radio show today saying that Obama’s campaign is going to go from “Yes We Can” in 2008 to “Why We Couldn’t” in 2012. LOL!!!
