President Obama pinned the blame on Republicans Tuesday for looming spending cuts that may be triggered by what was originally a White House proposal — while a former leader of the president’s deficit commission said it’s Obama who’s on the path to a “failed presidency” if he can’t tackle the debt.
The president spoke Tuesday at the White House, urging Congress to come up with a short-term fix to cancel sweeping cuts to defense and other programs set to hit March 1.
“These cuts are not smart. They are not fair. They will hurt our economy. They will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls,” Obama said. “This is not an abstraction — people will lose their jobs.”
And I bet the lamestream media took the talking point that it is the GOP’s fault and spread it all over like Cow manure.
Politico – No mention it was originally the O man’s idea.
NBC – Good Sycophant – No mention either
CBS – No mention either. However, they have a post-up called:” Duchess Kate shows off growing baby bump in public appearance”. WOW. Newsworthy.
ABC – No mention; however it looks there is an original episode of “Ordinary Family” coming up.
CNN – No mention; they have a post called “2013 Oscars: Cast Your Vote”. Hey that is always important.
Well, in that the “sequester idea” was from the Obama Team, and the Republican led House created legislation, 2 bills, that would make the reductions in spending much more realistic – only a reduction in rate of increases – Obama and Reid totally own this state of panic. Yes, “Obama built that”.
So to end this post a little libtard wisdom:
Here is an excerpt from a N.C. Newspaper editorial:
“The republicans are just trying to stand in the way, because the president is black. They dared to question whether he was born in this country. I think all this demonstrates that the Constitution needs to be amended when it comes to qualification for being president. Right now it says that a person has to be 35 years old and be a natural born citizen. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C-section. But because the constitution was written one hundred years ago, nobody even thought of the discrimination that would result from a doctor having to deliver a baby in this unnatural way.”
Signed “Proud to be a Democrat”
