Obama: Republicans Left Me With The Check For A Steak Dinner
RCP ^

Posted on 06/13/2012 12:24:59 PM PDT by sunmars

At a fundraiser on Tuesday, President Obama said the debt and deficit her inherited is "baked in" structurally. "If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true, what they're not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake," Obama advised his supporters.

"If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true, what they're not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake," he said.

"I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion-dollar deficit. We had a surplus, they turned it into a deficit, built it into a structural deficit that lasts for decades, and -- isn't that something?" President Obama said at a fundraiser today.

"This notion that somehow we caused the deficits is just wrong. It's just not true. Anybody who looks at the math will tell you it's not true. If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true, what they're not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn't pay for and the wars," he said.

"So all of this stuff is baked in, with all the interest payments for it, it's like somebody goes to the restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you're sitting down, they leave and accuse you of running up the tab. That's what they do," he said.

Blame Barney Frank and his sex toy at Fannie Mae. GW Bush WANTED to look into Fannie and Freddie.

This was a rat crime concocted to benefit rats and to help sway the 2008 election.

Dire situations call for radical change, like a push to socialism and a demonizing of capitalism.

FUBO.

Those Wascally Wepublicans.

They’re so crafty, they “baked in” this debt by using a Democrat Congress from 2006-2010.

What he fails to mention is that once Bush left the restaurant he ordered diamond encrusted lobster and caviar since he could blame bush for the bill.

He’s actually telling the truth for once. I was just looking at the CBO projections, even their best case scenario (end of Bush tax cuts) includes 5% annual growth and still doesn’t balance by 2022. A whole lot of hurtin coming down the road.

He proceeded to order about 12 more steaks, two large nacho appetizers, two oreo-cookie ice cream cakes, and ran up a bar tab until 2:30am the next morning before he stumbled out drunk.

He also stuffed a bunch of twenties in the juke box and played crappy songs all night.

“I bet he ate it and then stiffed the waitperson on the check.”

After he ate the steak he ordered a case of Dom Perignon, an ounce of cocaine, and a lap dance.

I think it’s more like Obama invited himself to dinner
then when you went to the rest room he ordered steak
and lobster for all his croneys and now he’s shocked
that you don’t have any money.

Geez, does he ever not speak in cliches? Can we, just one time, have an actual fact or figure from him?

Anyway, for the sake of argument, let’s assume what he is saying is true, then his ass needs to be fired soonest because he is obviously too incompetent to do anything about “the mess”. He has had more than 3 years, and he has still not “unbaked the cake”? He is just whining about it...like someone complaining that the dog crapped on the kitchen floor, and he is standing in it spreading it around with his feet. Typical ineptocrat.

He shouldn’t have run for the job that he wasn’t qualified to fulfill the position.

Concur. I would love to get my hands on the “Close Hold” Dem Strategy for the 2008 election after Bush was elected in 2004. I will bet there is mention that the US economy must not look good, unemployment should be on the rise, gas prices must go up.... They needed and wanted an economic crisis to bolster their chances. Just as the Dems wanted the War in Iraq to fail under Bush they wanted this country suffering economically.

Bush kept the war costs separate from the budget.

It was Obama who folded the costs into the budget and thus baked it into the cake. And Obama did the same thing with the stimulus bill. Both became part of the baseline expenses for the next year.

When did Obama ever ask them to reduce the spending. NEVER.

In other words, everything that went wrong in the past 3 1/2 years has been Bush’s fault. Should Obama really be bragging about being so massively inept that he hasn’t been able to change anything in his entire first term?

Obama needs to explain why the deficit was low until the Dems took control of the house and senate. Then when NObama took the white shack it got incredibly worse.

Funny how they ignore that historical fact. I guess it doesn’t fit in their pass the buck attempts.

The structural deficits are caused by the big 3 entitlement programs: Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. All three were passed by Congresses controlled completely by Democrats, and signed by Democratic Presidents.

Obama's contribution to the structural deficits caused by these three entitlement programs was to create a 4th -- ObamaCare.

Brilliant.

Funny because I just attended a town hall with NJ Gov. Christie. He has a solid dem legislature to deal with, yet he could go on and on how he reformed the pension funds, cut spending, wants to lower taxes further now that the previous huge shortfalls are coming into balance.

But Obama after 3 1/2 years and a Congres that was his party didn’t accomplish any of that and can only whine that it’s somebody else’s fault.

Christie also blamed the mess on his predecessors, except big difference he is cleaning up the mess. Obama isn’t.

Going with theis stupid analogy:

...it's like somebody goes to the restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you're sitting down, they leave.

Then after they've left, you order lobster and drinks for everyone in the restaurant and the you try to blame the big bill on the guy who had the steak.

More whining and excuses from Obama that will fall flat with everyone but the rapidly dwindling herd of Obama Kool-Aid drinkers. The American people are hurting and worried about the economy under Obama. All he does is propose more government spending (of money borrowed from China) and 'blame Bush', which was already getting old two years ago. Even if many voters are still blithely unaware of Obama's Marxist ideology, his glaring political incompetence and narcissistic arrogance is going to be his downfall. All Romney will have to do is push him over. Like many FReepers, I'm no fan of Romney but Obama has to go.

IMHO having watched quite a few Obama speeches, he always has been ridiculous. Despite the teleprompter, he makes a lot of stuff up as he goes along. This is a very lazy guy, and I mean intellectually lazy.

My theory is now that people aren’t just assuming he makes sense, the more he talks the more trouble he will get in.

This is a variation of the speech he gave before. In the previous version, the president mentioned ‘a steak dinner and a martini’.

Now we know it was not TOTUS’s fault. Obama’s speech writers intentionally used the same theme, must be ‘focus group tested’.
