Obama Politics As Usual

By Tony Katz

 

After watching the most recent speech from President Obama on the debt and deficit, I can honestly say that there is no depth to which he won’t sink. It is stunning to see the president talk about compromise, when the Administration has yet to put forth its own plan. Stunning when you realize that the Senate, under Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) would not allow Cut, Cap and Balance to have an up or down vote. Stunning when he calls on Americans to call the Senate and House members to demand compromise, but walks out on those same negotiations. This didn’t seem like a president who was effective. It looked like a panic-stricken leader who was now hoping the like-minded ideologues across America can place enough pressure on Washington to enact nonsensical tax increases. It seems obvious, based on the president’s words, that he is incapable of moving the nation forward based on his “rigid” ideology. [more...]

President Obama’s lack of business management experience is manifesting itself once again to the detriment of the American people. Instead of doing what any competent business owner would do when faced with declining revenues and a sagging economy, this President instead resorts to the only things he knows, politics and big labor thuggery. Implicit in his recent threat is that the Republicans will be responsible if Social Security recipients do not receive their checks. This misinformation is typical of the tactics utilized by a trained union/community organizer, such as the President, in an attempt to isolate and force the target to capitulate. [more...]

 

 

Obama’s Debt Ceiling Speech

By Joy Tiz

 

Obama once again tried to posture himself as the lone voice of reason in the debt ceiling debate, his recent tantrums notwithstanding.  If only we could lay more taxes on those corporate jet owners – we’re practically overrun with them – as he prepares to flit off in the grandest corporate jet in the world. Curiously absent from his dreadful speech was any threat to veto either the Boehner or Reid plans.  Obama did, however, do his best to spook the markets. [more...]
