Obama Transcript ("Spending cuts have already taken place")

Last year, in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts. Those have already taken place. The agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades.

He's saying the Deficit Reduction has already taken place. And any new Deficit cuts will require higher taxes.

Is the frickin' GOP crazy ??? They are negotiating on these terms?

It is impossible to negotiate with a psychopathic lying narcissistic ideologue that hates freedom and capitalism.

so much bullsh#t... the government thugocracy is complete. they lie without consequences, they kill without consequences, they destroy institutions without consequences and they are trying how to tell me how to run MY life.

Unfortunately there is no place on this planet that you can move to without paying "the man". There is no place in this country that you own property without permission from the king and congress. We live at their mercy, travel at their mercy, eat with their permission, and our children are only allowed to stay with us at their whim.

There is not one minute of anybody's time that is not run, supervised or limited by a bureaucrat. We are living the Orwellian nightmare.

Seriously, he has demonstrated he has only the slightest grasp of basic arithmetic ~ ability to differentiate the big numbers from the smaller numbers.

He's stupid.

I saw the rally (it was not a dignified speech) and I was somewhat puzzled when I heard him say that. I understand *why* he said it, though. He doesn’t want to cut spending. He wants to raise taxes, not “just a little bit.” And he’s not going to “ask” for the higher taxes, he’s going to take it by force. Duh.

He should be jailed just for what he does to the art of language and the science of Math.

His little TAUNTING speech this afternoon was an attempt at blowing the whole thing up. Sounds like it worked.

I think you're right. Secretly, the RATS want the middle class taxes, and they found a VERY clever way to get it without looking like they really want the money.

Deficit Reduction is not the same as spending cuts. Deficit reduction can be manipulated by making it LOOK as though there are cuts, when there are only cuts in planned increases. No actual cuts occur, they’re just on paper. Those are the kinds of cuts that Dems love to tout, when THEY do them, but crucify Repubs. for, when THEY do it.

Why haven’t the Repub’s already been on TV and asked what WHERE those spending cuts? Two can play the game of negotiating or upping the ante on TV.

These people think a 7% increase is a draconian cut

Let me guess, the spending cut is really a reduction in the planned increase in fiscal year 2525. Or else he is counting his fictional Obamacare savings yet again.

Frickin’ liar! He needs to be countered! GOPs need to get in there and counter these gawd-awful lies!! Otherwise, the lamestream will pick it up and go with it, and that will become the “truth.” Shout this down guys! Shout it down!!

GOP needs to boycott State of the Union speech, or walk out
in protest in the middle.

Obama's using the same logic a woman on a shopping spree uses when she whips out her credit card and blows $6,000 she doesn't really have on junk the family doesn't need... but she has a coupon for $10 off. She comes home and announces that she saved ten bucks.

Obama Transcript ("Spending cuts have already taken place")

BULLSHIT!*
Spending cuts which are phantom planned increases that were never applied but simply cancelled, ARE NOT CUTS!
Playing that game the arrogant, delusional, criminal scam artist can arrange to make 100% or 200% cuts every budget cycle, and the insane can actually believe that they are real cuts!

”Both the liar and the honest man must have regard for truth, the former to subvert it and the latter to propagate it. Bullshit, by contrast, is fundamentally unconcerned with truth or falsehood, but only with appearance, effect and persuasion, however transitory. Yuri Luzhkov was not accusing the Moscow weather forecasters of lying, or yet of trying to predict the weather and honestly failing; he was accusing them of not caring about the true weather. The essence of bullshit is getting away with it, with persuading listeners or readers of a sincerity that is, by definition, phoney. The bullshit artist simply does not care about truth: “He pays no attention to it at all,” writes Professor Frankfurt. “By virtue of this, bullshit is a greater enemy of truth than lies are.”

*BULLSHIT

LOL!

That reminds me of a similar story I heard today...

Explaining the debt ceiling so even a sub80 IQ liberal can understand it.
"Let's say that you come home from work and find that there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood, and your home has sewage all the way up to the ceiling.
What should you do?
Raise the ceiling?
...or remove the crap?"
