Who Said It?

The last several years have been filled with rhetoric and discussion about the financial straits we find ourselves in. Yet in the recent SOTU speech, the President called for more spending even though he says that none of his proposals would raise the deficit by “one dime”.

I would propose that his statement was accurate – because his intent is to raise taxes to pay for them.

But in all of this, there was one clear-eyed quote from one of the junior Senators that absolutely hit the mark:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

Who was it?

Rand Paul? Ted Cruz? Marco “H2O” Rubio?

Nope.

It was Democrat Senator Barack Hussein Obama from 2006 – two years before he was to become president and increase our debt by $6 trillion, never get a federal budget approved and run budget deficits of over $1 trillion a year for 4 straight years.

If this was true under Bush, why is it not true now? Even if it was “Bush’s fault”, that doesn’t change what Obama claimed should be done. If Obama actually meant what he said, if he has these convictions, why isn’t he actually doing something about it? Why isn’t the media holding him accountable for his words?

Or is he just a liar?

If this doesn’t prove what a shameless hypocrites Obama, the Democrats and the compliant and complicit media are, nothing will.

  1. He is and has always been a liar! He will continue down the road to ruin our country. This has been and will continue to be his first priority. As for the people of the U.S., it is easier to be ignorant than to be informed.

      • sasquatchtheyeti; Thanks for the heads up, I liked it so much I re-posted on FB. Hopefully it will wake a few people up!

      • Squatchi…… There is an article today on The Blaze which is highlighting a NYT article Feb 16 2013 by Gretchen Morgenson…

        In She mentions the Secret Bail-out of Bank of America……. So the Obama supporters also may not know that the Huge BANKSTER Bailout continues under Obama and the Democrats … this was supposedly an issue for them in the 2012 election….As something only the Republicans do.

        The whole issue was early on caught by the Market watchers in the market when B of A bought Wash Mutual and other “Trash” assets….there are reports of 70 Trillion Synthetic derivative s swept under the rug at B of A and now threatening Depositors similarly to M F Global and Corzine.

        Perhaps this info Ken can also put on FB……The Forcing of Banks to write Bad House mortgages by Clinton / Janet Reno Ramped this Up ….Obama’s Admin is trying to do this again BTW.
