Obama, Weapon of Mass Distortion
How do you describe the Preezy of the United Steezy, AKA Barry Oh!?
One way would be to explain him as a weapon of mass distortion, replete with straw men, a bully pulpit (plus Air Force One), and enabled by a subservient traditional media.
You want evidence? Sure we got evidence.
Take USA Today… please:
President Obama sought today to shift blame for the bumpy economy to congressional Republicans, saying too many of them are “standing in the way” of recovery.
“Either they say they want to do nothing … or they want to double down on some of the policies that didn’t work and got us into this mess in the first place,” Obama told voters in Iowa, citing in particular proposed tax cuts for the wealthy.
That’s called politics Barry, you know, where Republicans reject your party’s failed ideas? It’s clear you’re living in denial, but how do you explain the results of the 2010 elections? That was an endorsement of your party to keep doing what you’d been doing?
You got yer Washington Examiner:
“Do not buy into the B.S. that you hear about spending and fiscal constraint with regard to this administration,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Air Force One on Wednesday. Carney went on to cite a MarketWatch column by Rex Nutting, purporting to show that “under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.”
Is this true? Is Obama, contrary to all conventional wisdom, actually the most fiscally restrained president since the 1950s? No. It is Nutting’s analysis, which, in Carney’s words, is “B.S.”
Carney seems to have accidently spoken the truth here: do not buy into the B.S. that you hear about…fiscal constraint with regard to this administration.
Only this Administration would assert Obama hasn’t run up the debt. Even China lectures us on our debt: when you make up your own facts often enough, the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred.
Then there’s the DesMoinesRegister:
Obama repeatedly lashed out at Romney during his 42-minute speech, saying the Republican doesn’t see that the policies he’s proposing are “the very policies that got us into this mess,” Obama said.
“What happens is the Republicans run up the tab, and then we’re sitting there, and they’ve left the restaurant and then they point, ‘Why’d you order all those steaks and martinis?’ ” he said. “What he did not also tell you was that after inheriting a trillion-dollar deficit, I signed $2 trillion of spending cuts into law, so now I want to finish the job.”
$2 trillion of spending cuts into law? I’m not sure where that number comes from but suspect it is from drawdowns concerning Iraq and Afghanistan, money that was set to be cut regardless but of which Barry is desperate to claim credit for.
I’d like to know why the campaign couldn’t find just one clinically insane writer who would assert the Administration actually ran surpluses, reduced unemployment, and enhanced national security. Jay? Barry? Joe?
It’s also surprising the President didn’t recycle his unsuccessful Republicans drove us into a ditch and drank a Slurpee while Democrats pushed the U.S. economy over the cliff analogy.
Oops. Of course we really know that Democrats pushed us out of the ditch and that’s why we’re sitting pretty today with massive actual unemployment, out-of-control federal obligations, and the zombie-like brain-dead idea that government can lead us to the promised land.
Just like we’ve seen for the last three and a half years.
