Our Dear Leader Speaks On The Budget And The Deficit

As always, I listen to these things so you don't have to. More of the same boring class warfare, tax the rich nonsense from our president. No wonder Joe Biden fell asleep in the middle of it.

Basically, Obama doubled down on the Democrat's Tammany model ( bribing special interest groups with taxpayer dollars who then kick back a chunk of the money to the Democrats in the form of campaign contributions and vote them back into office), while demonizing Republicans and those evil, evil corporations as wanting to murder Granny, take food out of the mouths of starving children, and poison puppies in any spare time they have left over, just for the fun of it.

It was, in essence, a startlingly dishonest speech, stinking of partisanship and platitudes and devoid of any real solutions or ideas. In other words, standard Obama-speak.

It's the same nonsense he was spouting back during the '08 campaign about deficit cutting, because his people have told him the phrase 'deficit cutting' polls well. As you'll recall, our Dear Leader claimed he was going to cut the deficit by half - and ended up tripling it. Needless to say, he wasn't about to take any responsibility for that.

For those of you who like the president's idea of taxing the Evil you think what the president is proposing is a freebie for you? Here's a hint: corporations don't pay taxes. They pass them on to the people that use their goods and services in the form of price increases, they cut back on hiring and on research and development, and they ultimately deduct the taxes from their own tax returns, just like you deduct your property taxes or your auto registration fees.

Not only that, but take a look around you. Have you noticed what your local municipalities and states are doing with sales taxes and property taxes? And how about the price of a gallon of gas? Those greedy, profiteering oil companies make, on average, about a 9% profit on a gallon of gas in exchange for finding, pumping, shipping, refining and retailing it. In California, for instance, the government's cut on a gallon of gasoline simply for being there ranges from around .60 to .74 cents per gallon - or between a 17% 'profit' per gallon in outlying areas to 22% in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, depending on sales taxes and the actual retail price involved.

President Obama's policies on drilling for domestic oil directly affect the pain you feel at the pump and at the grocery store even if you aren't one the Evil Rich, and he isn't proposing a change in any of those he?

What Obama signaled today is that he and the Democrats are going to embrace deficit spending until the country goes broke, and that his main theme during the 2012 election is going to be to beat the old class warfare drum.

Simply despicable.

please helps me write more gooder!

may i be presumptuous in saying, on behalf of joshua's army, thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Simply despicable.

not nearly as despicable, imo, as the millions and millions, maybe even billions, who favor this agenda. he only got to be where he is by a vote of the people. living or not.

You're right, he did get elected, and we won. Kills you racists to have a Black man in the White House don't it?

It's our turn now.

I voted for Obama because he was black. What an idiot you are. Obama is turning the United States into Zimbabwe. When the economic collapse arrives I hope you and everyone else who voted for him end up living under a bridge.
