Start learning Mandarin, kids.
“In fact, there are things that we know will help strengthen our economy that we could get done before this year is out,” said Obama from the White House briefing room. “We still need to pass a law to fix our broken immigration system. We still need to pass a farm bill. And with the shutdown behind us and budget committees forming, we now have an opportunity to focus on a sensible budget that is responsible, that is fair, and that helps hard working people all across this country. And we could get all these things done even this year, if everybody comes together in a spirit of how-are-we-going-to-move-this-country forward and put the last three weeks behind us.”
Yes, I laughed until my ribs hurt at the “sensible budget that is responisble” line too.
Anyone familiar with Obamaspeak knows that the above paragraph is the political version of a kid in a candy store. Because we are so far through the looking glass that the majority of the political class is celebrating (useful idiot Peter King actually called this a victory for the American people) a chance to exacerbate our soon to be catastrophic debt problems, Obama knows he can hit the spending accelerator again.
Aided by centrist Republicans who are more interested in DC social status than the future of the Republic, The Idiot King and the Democrats are now encouraged to continue profligate spending habits. And thanks to the John McCain/Pete King wing of the GOP, they can do it virtually unchecked.
I was expecting him to mention “improving early childhood education”. Maybe he did but I missed it cuz I couldn’t stand hearing him talk and walked outta the room.
Ni hao. That’s your first Mandarin lesson for today.
Maybe the Chinese can run the country better than the bozos we have in Washington now can.
After I fell off the fiscal cliff, into a shutdown, and nearly a default, it is a great relief to spend money again now like drunken sailors (no offense to drunks, nor sailors, nor drunken sailors intended!).
Is he going to provide more weapons to Mexican drug cartels and to the Muslim Brotherhood?
My wife wanted to hear what the jug eared marxist was going to say. I said over my dead body as I switched on the TIVO. I cannot bear listening to the Fu..ing bastard.
Yes we need to start deficit spending to rebuild are infrastructure. Thing is how are we to do that when there’s no shovel ready jobs?
The Fuhrer speaks....
Well, BO, maybe you could start by asking your puppet Harry Reid to actually present a senate version.
FWIW, now I at least realize some good came out of the last two weeks: We ran some time off the clock for this jag-off.
DHS is building reeducation camps. Have u seen the cost of barbed wire lately?
No chance. They are sitting on a property bubble that makes ours look minuscule. Not even their manufacturing sector can save them if it pops.
The GOP, as we know it, is now dead. We must pick up the reins and rebuild it into the conservative party it was meant to be. The names of those Reps who voted for the Dem atrocity bill should be etched in stone with the title “Benedict Arnolds”.
When is the next white House Party?
But wait, the turkey said just because the debt ceiling was raised didn’t mean the debt would increase.
Kid in a candy store with money in his pocket is a perfect description for boy president.
Are the Barrycades all removed now? Like 5 minutes after the announcement of “a deal”?
If not, why not? they went up rather quickly.
I wasn’t going to listen to him either. Screw it, I’ll watch the playoff game.
Well the Chinese can get a man into space without renting from Russia...
Not so much a kudo to Chinese as much as a measure of how far we have fallen...
I have been a Pittsburgh Pirates fan for all of my life. In the last couple years (before their excellent season this year), they looked like winners for a while then fell apart at the end. Speculation was that the Bucs had embraced the suck and just could not envision themselves as winners. Sadly the republicans have also embraced the suck and have proven themselves to be pathetic losers unworthy of the support of patriotic Americans. They will get no support from me.
Buy your wire/bolt cutters now, before they’re banned...
