Beer Monday*: Chump Who Skyrocketted Deficit Says He’s Serious About Reducing It
Another Monday! Time to get busy, shift a few paradigms, brow-nose the bosses. How ’bout a beer?
You just know those beers Obama shared with British PM Cameron after losing a soccer bet went right to his head
President Barack Obama said on Sunday he would follow through on a pledge to rein in soaring U.S. budget deficits and said that would involve presenting Americans with “some very difficult choices” next year.
You mean the deficits he and his Democrat peeps in Congress created? Those deficits?
We can all guess what he means by “difficult choices.” Hint: jacking taxes up sky high, especially as he is discussing a review of the tax code. That kind of talk will surely put a stop to any corporate initiative to ramp up hiring, since companies, from small to large, will have no idea what PeBO will do to the tax code. On the bright side, Republicans should take over the Congress, or at least one part, and force some hard choices on Obama.
“I’m serious about it,” Obama said when asked at a news conference at the Group of 20 summit in Canada if he believed he could meet his deficit reduction goals.
Is he serious about it like he’s serious about golfing, concerts at the White House, and enjoying the trappings of the Office, or, serious like with Afghanistan, the War on Terrorism, securing the border, and the BP Spill?
“I’m doing it because I said I was going to do it,” Obama said. “People should learn that lesson about me, because next year, when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step up, because I’m calling their bluff.”
My bet is on massive tax increases, which Obama will blame on others, saying he was forced to break his often repeated campaign talking point about not raising taxes on those making less than $250K.
Is it any wonder that Scott Brown is more popular in Massachusetts than Obama?
* Beer Monday is something I used to do, just to lighten the mood on Mondays. Figured I would start it up again.
