"Lame Duck President!"
After listening to the President’s press conference today, let’s keep in mind the following:
This is the same president who proposed an absurdly irresponsible budget
that would increase our debt by trillions of dollars, and whose party
failed to even put forward a budget in over 800 days! This is the same
president who is pushing our country to the brink because of his
reckless spending on things like the nearly trillion dollar “stimulus”
boondoggle. This is the same president who ignored his own debt
commission’s recommendations and demonized the voices of fiscal sanity
who proposed responsible plans to reform our entitlement programs and
rein in our dangerous debt trajectory. This is the same president who
wanted to push through an increase in the debt ceiling that didn’t
include any cuts in government spending! This is the same president who
wants to slam Americans with tax hikes to cover his reckless spending,
but has threatened to veto a bill proposing a balanced budget amendment.
This is the same president who hasn’t put forward a responsible plan
himself, but has rejected reasonable proposals that would tackle our
debt. This is the same president who still refuses to understand that
the American electorate rejected his big government agenda last
November. As I said in Madison, Wisconsin, at the Tax Day Tea Party
rally, “We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to
pay for it.”
Now the President is outraged because the GOP House leadership called
his bluff and ended discussions with him because they deemed him an
obstruction to any real solution to the debt crisis.
He has been deemed a lame duck president. And he is angry now because he is being treated as such.
His foreign policy strategy has been described as “leading from behind.”
Well, that’s his domestic policy strategy as well. Why should he be
surprised that he’s been left behind in the negotiations when he’s been
leading from behind on this debt crisis?
Thank you, GOP House leaders. Please don’t get wobbly on us now.
2012 can’t come soon enough.
