Hussein is now talking about how a family balances the budget....they don’t ask for an increase in their credit limit, do they, Hussein?

DeMint says it is a law and Medicare has to be paid...if it’s stopped whoever stopped it goes to jail...

Tapper asked a specific question, "Can you tell us one structural reform..."

and the answer was vague, as usual

... so, for example, uh, I've said very clearly, that, uhh, we should make sure that current beneficiaries, as much as possible, are not affected, but we should look at what we can do in the out years, so that over time some of these programs are more sustainable ...

No wonder the Speaker described the President's proposals as jello.

What a sad display of bootlicking. They will ask obama about the republican plan but nobody has courage to ask him where is your plan!

The 0bamas themselves notoriously overspend their personal budgets. Remember, he was maxed out on his credit card in 2000 when trying to rent a car to go to the DNC convention to speak.

You are thinking inside the framework of law and regulation. I wouldn't say it is impossible. The Won just orders Geithner not to issue the checks - stroke of the pen, law of the land.

The counter to that is to tell the people "He has no authority to do that! SS has it's own independent funding source! He's embezzling the SS funds!".

The fact that the Repubs are NOT making noise about that has me suspicious, in a "the dog that did not bark" sort of way.

Its not just WH staffers.

The US city with the best housing market and one of the best job markets is, Washington DC!

Obama has created his own liberal utopia right in the heart of our nations capitol. Democrats and Republicans in DC aren't hurting. Its the rest of America that needs a break from these beltway yahoos!

I am pretty sure he just asked for one more big money loan to make sure everything is all right for ten years after lecturing us on not going into debt.

He is now trying to renegotiate the deal he struck last December with the Bush tax cuts, extension of unemployment benefits, cut the employee SS contribution (which actually means less revenue for SS to pay benefits), etc.

This is just a propaganda exercise with the Campaigner in Chief using the bully pulpit to demagog the issue thru class warfare. If we only had real reporters who had some integrity, they could slice and dice this guy's lies. Now Obama is blaming the Reps for cutting too much from defense and he has to stop it as CIC. What chutzpah.

Tapper and the Bloomberg reporter tried to nail Obama down on specifics he would accept. We got to see what Boehner descibed as trying to pin down Jello. Obama talks a good game, but when you analyze what he said he’s committed to nothing.

And which one of Holder's minions is going to put Barry in jail? The phrase "no controlling legal authority" comes to mind.

Obama is now saying the problem is not that bad. Now he is blaming the Prescription drug program, two wars, etc. and he even mentioned in passing the stimulus program. He is on track to exceed the debt Bush accrued in 8 years in 3 years. More populist rhetoric.
