“We Are Not a Deadbeat Nation”, Obama Says, Then Misses Deadline for Sending Budget to Congress

But don’t call the man, lazy. According to Colin Powell, that’s incredibly racist.

“The issue here is whether or not America pays its bills,” Obama said at a press conference on Monday, the last of his first term in office. “We are not a deadbeat nation.”

There are so many things wrong with that…

1. In 2006, Obama said that raising the debt limit was “a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies”.

Now failing to raise the debt limit and not pay the bills using financial assistance from foreign governments to finance his reckless fiscal policies is a sign that America can’t pay its own bills. By which he means his bills.

2. When you run up this high a debt, then you are a deadbeat. Turning the national numbers into a family income, Obama’s spending spree is the equivalent of a family with a $21,700 annual income running up $16,500 in new debt to be added to $142,710 in existing credit card debt.

If that’s not the definition of a deadbeat, I don’t know what is.

3. It’s not America’s debt. It’s America’s debt the way that it’s your debt when the bellboy runs up illegal charges on your credit card. And here the bellboy is accusing the hotel of being deadbeats unless they let him run up a lot more charges on the country’s credit card.

nobama and his family are tied (if not surpassing them) for the title of “Biggest Grifter Family In History”. They have no shame, no remorse, no sense of personal responsibility, no concern for others...and have a major negative attitude. They all should be incarcerated...each in a solitary cell in a Federal Supermax for the rest of their caustic and worthless existences.
