Via The Right Scoop, Obama claiming that he had a deal that would have solved the Budget Mess, by closing all of those loopholes for millionaires and billionaires:
As Dan Cleary points out, it would have been nice if we all could have seen that plan (yes, Jay Carney) on paper, so that the CBO could have scored it and all. But no, that would have been an impediment to the negotiations which resulted in the deal that Obama signed and from which he now wants to distance himself.
At the risk of being called raaaaacist, I’d just like to point out that it was Obama who reneged on the agreement he’d hammered out with Boehner, by deciding to demand an extra $400 billion in spending to the $800 billion that had already been stipulated. Indeed, at a meeting he called at the White House (I believe he used the word “summoned”), the adult in the room behaved so obnoxiously that the Congressional children had to ask him to leave so they could try to get something done.
Warren Buffet kindly lent Obama some of his rapidly diminishing credibility regarding the millionaires and billionaires stuff yesterday. One wonders if Buffet’s daily-increasing buffoonery had anything to do with his heir apparent jumping ship.
But wait! There’s more! A TEA Party person confronted Obama as he was pressing the flesh over Joe Biden agreeing with some Dem Congressman Mike Doyle’s allegation that the TEA Party had “acted like terrorists,” and the President denied that had ever happened:
All of this brings us round to the real hot issue, naturally. Rick Perry said that another round of Quantitative Easing, i.e., printing more money, would be “almost treasonous,” and the lovely lefties infesting the sphere decided to be aghast that he was threatening Ben Bernanke with his life! All of this talk about trying Bush and Rumsfeld for war crimes has gone away, somehow, so I suppose that this statement by Perry means that he would like to see Bernanke publicly hanged, drawn and quartered, for the Crime of Almost Treason. I faint! I grow weak! Please fetch the smelling salts and a bottle of brandy. And please see that it is properly decanted this time.
Fortunately, Obama’s dispatched his crack-pated Veep to try to talk the Chinese into agreeing that our spending more money would be a good thing.
