There’s an old saying: respect the office, if not the man. But, what if the man uses the office to make the presidency as much of a joke as he is himself? Anyhow, Obama has used his perch to complain like a 5 year old who isn’t allowed to have a cookie before doing his homework
Just days ahead of the Aug. 2 debt ceiling deadline and as partisan rankling continued on Capitol Hill, President Barack Obama urged Congress to show him a plan that would divert the country from national default by Tuesday.
Huh what? Why not offer one up yourself?
In the weekly address to the
nation DNC, the president maintained that House Republicans had wasted too much time passing a bill that doesn’t offer a long-term solution to the debt crisis.
In other words, one that doesn’t get him beyond the 2012 elections.
The House plan, Obama argued, would expose the country to another impasse in a few months. “It would hold our economy captive to Washington politics once again,” he said. “If anything, the past few weeks have demonstrated that’s unacceptable.”
Yeah, damned those politics by people elected to represent the will of their constituents who see spending as a major problem.
“And make no mistake – for those who reflexively opposed tax increase on anyone, a lower credit rating would be a tax increase on everyone,” he warned.
“That would be inexcusable, and entirely self-inflicted by Washington. The power to solve this is in our hands.”
So, yet again, President Snippy Pants uses his perch to insult a group of Americans by saying that their hardcore political belief that tax increases are a Bad Idea is the same as his own knee jerk reaction to whine when he doesn’t get his own way. It’s rather hard to respect the office when Obama has worked hard to make it the same as some tin pot incompetent third world dictators office.
And, if the power is “in our hands”, why doesn’t he offer a plan?
