INSPIRING? BETTER THAN VALIUM!
Apparently , Kenya Boy’s budget speech was so trite and full of the same old bipartisan nonsense that it even put Joe Biden to sleep.
I kid you not! Check out these links!
Hyped as a speech about cutting the deficit, Obama instead delivered a speech about why not to cut spending and why to preserve all of his programs. Attempting to position himself as the grown-up in the room, Obama instead made it clear that nearly everything that he "believe[s] in" should remain untouched. Anything else would reflect a lack of "patriotism," the president implied.
Using words to mean something they've never meant before is standard fare for this administration.
When our favorite illegal alien spoke of lowering "spending in the tax code," it was in the context of his desire to raise rates for upper-income Americans. Under Bill Clinton, the top tax rate was 39.6 percent, but today it's 35 percent. That extra 4.6 percent of income that a successful American gets to keep -- to Obama that counts as "spending" by the government.
The speech was a defense of his own policies and an attack on Republicans. Obama attacked Republicans for opposing tax increases as "an article of faith." The phrase was meant to put down an unbending dogma at a time when "tough choices" are needed.
But Obama has repeatedly shown steadfastness on Democratic "articles of faith" -- consider his willingness to shut down government over Planned Parenthood funding last week, and his adherence to his own tax credits.
Obama believes in sacrifices, but not by him.
Oh, and by the way-if you oppose any of his policies-you’re a racist.
