White House pushes Obama budget, warns Republicans about 'my way or highway' tactic (Hurl Alert)
AP via Fox News.com ^ | April 7, 2013

Posted on 04/07/2013 4:27:25 PM PDT by Kaslin

The White House tried Sunday to win support for President Obama’s forthcoming budget, arguing the plan is a balanced approach to economic prosperity and warning Republicans about stonewalling negotiations and pushing a “rejected” Romney plan.

“Right now, the approach of many Republicans, particularly the leadership in the House, is my way or the highway,” senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer told “Fox News Sunday.” “Their view is the only acceptable plan is to try to … essentially enact the Romney economic plan. The American people rejected that, and Republicans shouldn't be doubling down on it.”

The White House effort comes three days before Obama releases his 2014 budget, which is expected to include a mix of tax increases and cuts to such entitlements as Social Security and Medicare.

In psychology, that is called “Projection” ..when you accuse someone else of what you are feeling or doing or want to do.

And if he could have it his way, he’d have his opponents put away....or worse.

Obama, of course, knows better: his whole electoral strategy was to turn Presidential politics into American Idol for ugly people and he won because he’s “cool” and Romney was “square” (or whatever the latest nonce words in the youth culture are, maybe “hip” and whatever its opposite is), rather than on the basis of policy preferences among an informed electorate. The notion that the electorate rejected Romney’s economic policy is fatuous.

There was a total prick on with Chris Wallace earlier that kept saying, “Republicans can’t expect to cut their way to prosperity.” The new meme from these smug asses, to be sure. But that’s EXACTLY how we can get back to prosperity, cut government and cut it BIG.

Do you honestly believe Obama wants prosperity? If he did, he would not be telling banks to make subprime loans - again. Prosperity for America is the last thing he wants.

There is really only one point of controversy out there - Is the United States ever going to get back to some degree of fiscal sanity, or not? The Current Regime appears to be for NEVER getting back to sanity.

Oh, they SAY they do, but not much of what they offer seems to directed toward that objective. They go into tantrums and hissy fits at the least suggestion that the rate of government spending growth even gets slowed down, let alone reversed or terminated. They continue to add unsustainable programs, with no legitimate source of funding in sight, and apply regulations and restrictions whose only purpose seems to be to stall out real economic growth, for no apparent advantage.

Then they charge off in some other “social reformation” crusade, be it for same-sex marriage, forcing “the rich” to pay their “fair share” (never defined, by the way), or now, “gun control”, when they won´t even enforce the laws now on the books in regard to controlling access to guns by criminals, or adequately sentencing those who choose to use firearms to commit crimes or assaults.

“My way or the highway”, to which I would say, “What highway?”

The thing which nobody speaks about though, is what else it means.

If you cut government big, you put more responsibility on individuals.

Individual workers. Individual companies. Making individual products.

Right now though, we no longer make individual products. We have sent those factories to China.

So we cannot cut government as drastically as you say, because we have eliminated jobs.

Bring BACK jobs. Now.

First.

Exhibit B............

Obama, speaking in Colorado about "gun control" legislation.........

And so, surely, we can have a debate that’s not based on the notion somehow that your elected representatives are trying to do something to you other than potentially prevent another group of families from grieving the way the families of Aurora or Newtown or Columbine have grieved. We’ve got to get past some of the rhetoric that gets perpetuated that breaks down trust and is so over the top that it just shuts down all discussion. And it’s important for all of us when we hear that kind of talk to say, hold on a second.

This coming from the same a-hole that talks about Republicans wanting dirty air, dirty water, kids with autism to fend for themsleves and wanting granny thrown off a cliff.

FUBO!

Which highway is it? now if it is the interstate highways in Illinois, those need to be avoided at all costs. Orange Cone Season has reopened in Illinois. see Obama means we have to all get on the I-90 Expressway at rush hour - no one gets anywhere very fast.

Obama’s budget 2 months late which is a violation of federal law, but Obama had more important things to do Golf, Vacation, golf, Vacation, golf and vacation.
