Posted on 07/15/2011 7:28:37 AM PDT by kristinn
Obama and GOP to hold dueling press conferences this morning on the pending Obamageddon. The Republicans are set to speak to the press sometime this morning after a closed door caucus meeting featuring a doomsday briefing on debt default.
Obama is set to speak at 11 a.m. EDT.
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?
“cutting the things that are not necessary...”
Yes, like about half of the federal budget!
DeMint says it is a law and Medicare has to be paid...if it’s stopped whoever stopped it goes to jail...
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.
Thats enough of obummer,Im going to watch Rifleman.
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!
It’s almost embarrassing if it isn’t so pathetic.
Baraq’s a real stumble bum w/o the TOTUS.
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.
He thinks about “this like a layer cake.”
Chuck “Kneepads” Todd up ...
We can fix this thing for a decade or more...bs.
We’ll have to limp along until he’s gone, then take it up again in Jan 20th, 2013.
That is great.....but why Oh why did they wait...this could have been done months ago when talk of the debt ceiling started.
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.
Have previous Presidents done the news conf with a predetermined roster of scripted questions and questioners like Baraq does?
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.
disingeous turd..He refers to Bowles Simpson (that I..I...I intiated) but he threw that plan under the bus!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t watch...I really don’t like puking as much as I did when I was younger...
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.
He just said the American people are interested in solving the debt problem yet his press person has said Americans are not concerned about it and are only thinking about their own situation! What Crap!
Be still my heart!
BO just pulled 80% approval out of his ***!
80% of the American people want new ‘revenues’?
What bloody poll is he quoting 80% of Americans want tax hikes as well as spending cuts??
This guy is living in an alternate universe.
And which one of Holder's minions is going to put Barry in jail? The phrase "no controlling legal authority" comes to mind.
He SOLD us...he keeps saying “The American People are Sold”!
He sure did. And the condescending comment on “BBA”, like we didn’t know what he was talking about. Just another wtf moment.
Blah Blah Blah.... and some more BLAH!
Lori Montgomery of the Washington Post asks Obama about Balanced Budget Amendment. Obama’s against it, of course.
WTF. Yeah we DO need a Constitutional Amendment, because asshats like YOU, Oblidiot, can’t freaking STOP asking for higher credit limits!!!
We aren’t buying your feces Oblidiot!
Mens rea, malum in se.
Maliciousness, evil of itself.
We’re not Greece, we cut taxes over the last decade without paying for it.
STUCK on STUPID!
80% of who? I haven’t seen a poll yet that shows 80% support for tax increases. What a liar.
This guy is a fool!
Taxing business will help us grow LoL
giving out tax breaks to companies who don’t need em
(ie not Baraqqi supporters)
So, these presstitutes submit their questions, and WH staffers prep Zero on the answers to their selected questions?
Quite the scam.
We are a joke as a people for letting evil bassturds like this lie to our faces
And more blame Bush stuff...2 wars, recession, we don’t need a balanced budget amendment to fix that. Almost threw somehting at the set. Wish there was a reporter who’d start throwing shoes.
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.
HERE HERE!! A fantastic idea. Make him fly commercial at his own expense or drive like the rest of us. We don’t have the money for him to go skipping across the country.
Maybe he sold us to the Chinese?
Yes he’s calling the roster from that white slip of paper he picks up.
Obama still blaming Bush!
Who wants to cut Medicare and SocSec? Obama’s is a damn liar.
