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.
RUNNING OUT OF TIME FRink!
“Millionaires and billionaires.”
Hey Obozo the Republicans were just on TV with their plan!
Obama pulls out a list of who can ask questions and who CAN’T
Hussein just APPEALED TO THE POLLS! Now this jerkwad just said EARLIER THIS WEEK the American people didn’t understand the issue. LOL!
I agree,same shite,different day!
I sincerely hope he enjoys his day as miserably as possible, with the dawning realization that his old single schtick has not worked and will not work this time.
Jake Tapper...what are you doing on entititlements?...He’s giving a very vague answer...of course.
“corporate jet owners”
(And threatening defense, vets, and Medicare. Jerk.)
“Corporate tax loopholes.”
Transcript: “ah, ah, I, ah, me, ah, ah, millionares and billionares, ah, ah, ahhhh, ah, ah, I, corporate jet owners, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, I, blah, ah, ah, me, blah, ah, ah,blah ah, .....
He’s turning 50, dontchaknow, and going to get is AARP card and discounts.
What a dick.
10 minute answer...
He just said he’s turning 50 in a week...but his bday is Aug 4th.
Or at least that’s what’s on his “birth certificate”...
certainty and reliability in their golden years
Instead of slamming the so called rich and small business owners with higher taxes to fund Obama federal bureaucracy, how about asking some of the 45% of Americans who don't pay a dime of federal taxes to sacrifice and kick in a few bucks.
"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem."
Now the drug company mention...and of course a toss to AARP - “I get my card soon. Eff him.
Not going to get into specifics, Jake. Of course, not.
His response on entitlement reform is pure BS. We can make changes but they have to be preserved. No specifics. Just some words, mere words.
Not watching it, but reading you guys, we’re gonna have alotta drunk folks on here shortly. LOL.
Is that the reporter that asked for examples of what Obama was willing to cut to show the American people he was negotiating in good faith?
(almost fainted when I heard the question)
LOL!! He’s like us,doesn’t even know his “real Birthday”
It seems the Obamageddon is only accepting questions from those on his approved “media buttboy/skank list.”
The president couldn’t have spent a dime without Congressional approval.
Hard to drink responsibly with this nut in power
“balanced approach”, “shared sacrifice” in the same sentence!
Make it a double!
Hussein also dissed Paul Ryan when answering the Tapper question.
Good for Pence!
YEs...but the response was less than ‘specific’, naturally.
House is going to vote on a couple of things just to make political statements.
Hans Nichols of Bloomberg News asks Obama about new GOP plan. Obama says he hasn’t seen it. Obama says if debt ceiling not raised $2.4 trillion you will be gutting programs. Obamageddon!
I just wish one of these news twits would read Baraq’s statement from the Bush years about raising the debt ceiling being a “failure of leadership”
Obama just said the Republicans would vote on some dog and pony show bills before they vote on the real bill
“Balanced plan...shared sacrifice.”
I never watch it on TV. I follow along on these live threads, thank God that other FReepers are able to stomach that disgusting mess. I will endure the audio playbacks that hosts like Levin will play since it is usually accompanied by some good commentary that helps the "medicine" go down!
He is not talking about shared squat...
I am yelling at my computer.....
Obama: “Congress has run up their credit card”
What? It was just Congress?
Students and federal workers will have to pay more FRink!
oil company tax breaks
This guy is touting $1 trillion over 10 years. That works out to $100 billion a year out of almost a $4 trillion annual budget. It is not even a rounding error.
Obama just said the Republicans plan will cut social security
Will reporters ask about “shared sacrifice” of White House staffers getting steep raises last year with many making well over $100k?
Oil Company tax breaks
Corporate Loop holes
He can’t get off the same old, same old tread mill
Between a rock and hard place and on top of a garbage heap...priceless.
Balance budget amendment will result in cutting SS and Medicare. Yes, both programs are unsustainable. The General Fund is paying 51% of Medicare’s costs.
Students? Federal workers? AWESOME!
Little remembered fact:
Apparently, White House Presidential stationery was misprinted at one point under Reagan. Rather that tossing it out and reordering, he would correct it himself (when using it) until the supply was exhausted.
Who knew that even Republicans that are polled want tax increases as part of this deal?
