OBAMANOMICS - From the Sophist in Chief

If the shoe fits, WEAR IT!!!

A paid teacher of philosophy and rhetoric in ancient Greece, associated in popular thought with moral skepticism and specious reasoning

A person who reasons with clever but fallacious arguments

In 2006, Senator Obama argued and voted against raising the debt ceiling. In 2007 and 2008, he didn't even bother to vote.

In 2006...

“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.”

Obama and Warren Buffet don't need tax breaks. 

They both would be willing to "give" more in taxes, but they've never been asked. 
In what Bizarre-o world are taxes paid equated to "voluntary charitable giving" and taxes charged by the government are equated to a "voluntary request" for payment.

Am I missing the part of the tax code that outlines the penalties for non-compliance. 
This is the same mind-set that believes the federal government provides "subsidies" to churches because it does not tax them. It's all the governments property, they just decide to let you keep some of it. 


Obama will cut deficit in half FEB 2009

"Obama talks about how he will cut the deficit in half during his first term - and why it's so important. Really? The 2008 budget deficit was 458 billion. Obama's proposed new budget for this year has a deficit of 1.1 TRILLION. For God's sake - WTF???"
Let me see if I get this straight Chief. "You were going to cut the deficit in half, before you decided to double it as far as the eye can see." Is that about right? Or am I not hearing the words that are coming out of your Teleprompter correctly?
PLAN A - fail miserably
PLAN B - hope electorate forgot about PLAN B and proceed to PLAN B
PLAN B - lather, rinse, repeat.
Obamanomics = Bullshit²
What happened in Wisconsin showed that the mind-set of these government idiots and their lackeys is "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine to if I want to take it." 
Our standard of living has been a bit of a charade for decades and now the bill is coming due. GDP has been highly subsidized by government spending for many years, growth has been an illusion.
