Skip to comments.President Obama Is MIA on Fiscal Policy
Posted on 08/19/2012 6:19:25 AM PDT by Kaslin
feel like a pendulum this election season. Something will happen that makes me want to eviscerate Obamas statist policies and Ill write a foaming-at-the-mouth post warning that the President is turning America into Greece.
But then Romney will do something odious and Ill sound the warning sign with a we-dont-need-another-big-spender-like-Bush post.
Today, its Obamas turn on the chopping block. I went on Neil Cavutos Fox Business News program and commented on the fact that the President doesnt have a fiscal plan.
We started by discussing the Presidents failure to embrace the findings of his own Fiscal Commission and then shifted to the big-picture issue of whether the American people have become ensnared by the dependency mindset and are willing to vote for Greek-style fiscal policy.
Dan Mitchell Commenting on Obama's Failure to Propose a Fiscal Plan
One thing I should have added is that Obama actually does have a fiscal plan. Hes just not willing to be as honest as the leftists who have admitted that you need to screw the middle class with higher taxes to fund big government.
My own personal guess is that he would impose a value-added tax if he thought it was politically feasible. Not that Im showing any great insight. After all, Obama already has made the ridiculous statement that a VAT is something that has worked for other countries.
But because hes running for reelection, hed rather just demagogue the Ryan plan rather than show his own cards.
P.S. Even the cartoonist for the Washington Post doesnt think the VAT is something that is working for other countries. This cartoon is a classic and definitely worth sharing. And you can enjoy other VAT cartoons here and here.
coulda stopped at “obama is MIA”
Fiscal policies are not really top priorities with former members of the Choom Gang. Imagine cogent thoughts after 67 or so bong hits
Oh, he’s Right On Target - for the Marxist Royal Kleptocrats who put him in the White Hut to consolidate their power and destroy the middle class.

"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
He’s off cheating at golf.
Absurd on its face. 0bama never went in to fight. He just opened the treasury doors wide and ran the other way.
