Obama Team Admits They Don’t Have a Plan to Handle Long Term Debt

17 Feb

 

From the Washington Examiner:

President Obama spent much of last year pretending that he had a plan to tackle the nation’s long-term debt crisis. He never released an actual plan, but he gave a bunch of speeches pretending that he had. And Obama pushed the idea that he was privately ready to cut a “grand bargain” on the debt were he not thwarted by intransigent Republicans. This was a narrative dutifully reported by the media, despite the lack of any formal plan. Now, the pretending is over.

On Monday, Obama unveiled a budget that added to the debt while using a series of budget gimmicks to claim deficit reduction. And today, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner conceded that the administration didn’t even attempt to do anything about the nation’s long-term debt problem.

“The Path to Prosperity: America’s Two Futures, Visualized”

It is nice to see that someone is serious about addressing out debt problem. Obama surely has no intentions of dealing with it.  To Obama and his fellow Democrats, nothing is more important than social, economic and environmental justice.  If it means spending our nation into a debt that will crush us in the future, so be it.

I can’t wait to see the Democrats demagogue this to death.

You Can’t Spell ‘Demagogue’ Without ‘DEM’

It’s nice to see that Democrats are up to their same old tricks, which is scaring senior citizens by telling them that Republicans want to take away their Social Security and Medicare.  But, as we all know Democrats are always in search of a villain to blame.  They’ve even dusted off old cliches like:

“In an unsettling development for America’s seniors, ending Social Security and Medicare is now the official position of the Republican Party,” said Jon Summers, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

Democrats spend most of their time in search of enemies.  Some of their favorite enemies are Conservative talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck.  But they have also recently made enemies out of Karl Rove, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, John Boehner and Supreme Court Justices.  You see, to Democrats, nothing is ever their fault.  To Democrats, all of the country’s problems can be laid exclusively at the feet of Conservatives (with no proof offered). We are supposed to applaud Democrats for their intentions and never look at the results of their actions. (Mostly because the results are disastrous)

Another reason for their recent attacks on Paul Ryan comes from this excerpt:

“Democrats hope they can make Ryan’s debut on the national political stage as disastrous as the rebuttal Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) delivered in 2009. Jindal’s stilted performance, which the media skewered, immediately quieted talk of him as a presidential contender in 2012.”

The media pounced on Gov. Bobby Jindal after his SOTU response in 2009, which many feel took him out of the pool of serious presidential contenders for 2012.  No doubt, the media will try to do the same with Paul Ryan.  He’s young, attractive, well-spoken and has great command of the issues.  All of which threaten Democrats and their accomplices in the media.

Question:  When will Republicans, and Americans at large, quit worrying about what the Democrat media thinks about them?  Who cares if they don’t like Bobby Jindal or Paul Ryan?  Who would expect them to?  They should not get to decide who is a serious candidate or politician for Republicans.  If we continue to let them decide, we will continue to get moderate wimps like John McCain.  No thanks.
