Krauthammer: ‘This is Obama at his most sanctimonious, demagogic,  self-righteous and arrogant’

Late Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama went to the White House press room after House Speaker John Boehner reportedly walked away from  the debt-ceiling negotiation.

   He had some very stern words about Boehner and the Republicans in the House.  But Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer wasn’t impressed with Obama’s  anger.

   During Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Krauthammer said  this was Obama at his worst.

    “This is Obama at his most sanctimonious, demagogic, self-righteous and  arrogant,” Krauthammer said. “And given the baseline, it wasn’t a pretty sight.  Look, he started out by summoning the leaders of Congress – summoning on them at  11:00, who does he think he is? In the American system, the executive and  Congress are coequal … The way he demanded their appearance in the Oval Office I thought was disgraceful,” Krauthammer  said.

     He said the president’s consternation was curious because Obama has yet to  publicly offer his own plan.

   “As Steve [Hayes] indicated the Republicans have offered a detailed plan – the Ryan plan in the House, and they offered Cut, Cap and Balance this time  around,” Krauthammer said.

   “President offered nothing except if you go in the back room, my staff will  give you tick-tock, a detail of everything I was supposed to have given. He has  never once spoken about real cuts. And lastly, what was interesting is  even at the late date where he says that the fate of the republic hangs on the  debt ceiling extension, he said if given a short extension of say half a year, I  won’t accept it. Why? Because he says I want this to go past Election Day. That  is self-serving and political and he pretends he is the one who is not  interested in politics.”

OBAMA INSULTO AL PODER LEGISLATIVO MENOSPRECIANDO AL LIDER DE LA CAMARA DE REPRESENTANTES MINTIENDO Y DESINFORMANDO AL PUEBLO SOBRE LAS SERIAS E IMPRESINDIBLES NEGOCIACIONES IMPULSADAS POR LOS REPUBLICANOS PARA TRATAR DE PONER UN COTO A SUS DESENFRENADOS GASTOS QUE ESTAN LLEVANDO EL PAIS A LA RUINA.

    Obama,en todo un alarde de petulancia y arrogancia, ignora que los Estados Unidos es una república constitucional con tres ramas separadas e iguales en cuanto a sus poderes, el ejecutivo, el legislativo y el judicial.  El desdén de Obama por la Constitución no es nada nuevo, Obama en su arrogancia dictatorial ya había humillado ante la nación y al mundo a los jueces de la Suprema Corte de Justicia durante su discurso anual ante el pleno del Congreso sobre el estado de la nación. 

    Ahora, Obama, demostrando una vez más su inmadurez e incapacidad para gobernar democráticamente, trató de manera irrespetuosa a los representantes del poder legislativo como si fueran sus simple lacayos, mintiendo y degradando a los republicanos que participan en las negociaciones, mientras de manera imperativa les ordenaba a acudir hoy domingo a la Casa Blanca, después de haber tratado de desacreditarlos y humillarlos ante la nación exhibiendo un ridículo y fingido enojo más propio de un teatro Kabuki que de quien en su persona mal representa al país más poderoso de la historia.

 

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY, MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENNIUM
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them, like this quote from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out - we have a lot of work to do.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."    :asustado:

NUTHOUSE ECONOMICS

by Daniel J. Flynn

HUMAN EVENTS 07/25/2011

 



 

   “Experience is a hard master but only fools will have no other,” counseled Ben Franklin. Unfortunately, these dire days the fools won’t even defer to experience.

   The Great Recession isn’t about what we’ve learned. It’s about what we’ve unlearned.

   Hard times reveal soft heads. Conmen prey on despair by offering hope. The people most desperate for a cure buy the snake oil. Later, they realize they’ve been had.

   We lose our minds only after we’ve lost much else.

During the boom, the crank dodges tomatoes and the long hook from stage right. During the bust, the crank basks in the limelight and the crowd’s applause. The reversal of fortune that turns the economy upside down also turns economics upside down.   What flunked Econ 101 yesterday aces it today.

   Consider the bipartisan stupidity that now governs the government:

   When in Debt, Double Down on Debt

Rash is the new prudent. The debt-limit debate, in which the establishment perversely insists that denying trillions in new borrowing will inflame the debt crisis, underscores this bassackwards thinking. Caution requires that we take on trillions in new debt. Recklessness stands athwart more borrowing. Never has incontinence been so effectively sold as moderation.

    Government Should Further Shrink a Shrinking Economy

“You don’t raise taxes in a recession,” the president assured an Elkhart, Indiana audience two years ago. “We haven’t raised taxes in a recession.” That’s what he said. What did he do? He signed the greatest tobacco tribute in history. He invented health-care levies that grabbed billions in the strangely named Affordable Care Act. He tried to raise the top marginal income-tax rate last December. And in the debt-limit discussions, he demands—Guess what?—$1 trillion in tax hikes. No matter the question, Obama’s answer is consistent: raise taxes.

    Moral Hazard’s Immorality

“I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system,” George W. Bush uttered in his presidency’s waning days. The last president’s senseless quip makes sense as an epitaph for a senseless era. The government bailout to socialize the losses of careless financiers incentivized recklessness. The beauty of the free market is that it encourages productivity through profit and discourages failure through loss. The profit motive is more effective, if less well intentioned, than any do-gooder program. But this is an age that values benign motives over idiotic results.

PART 2



Shifting the Wealth Grows the Economy

They promised a stimulant. It was really a sedative. And it wasn’t until the whole country woke up naked, bleeding, and missing $787 billion that we had all realized that the stimulus the Democrats had slipped us was really a roofie. The stimulus failed because it merely shifted around existing dollars. Robbers redistribute wealth. They don’t create it. Ditto for politicians. Beware of robbers, elected and unelected, slipping you a Mickey.

   Don’t Call Us Robber Barons

When the state subsidized railroads and oil companies, newspapermen quickly cried “crony capitalism” and “robber barons.” But phrases like “clean energy” and “green jobs” confuse journalists the way “these are not the droids you are looking for” mindtrick stormtroopers. The president has repeatedly demanded government “investment” in the private sector. The media never question why actual investors—you know, the ones who make millions betting their own lucre on ventures—balk at pouring money into the giant pinwheels, overpriced electric soap-box cars, and ghost-town wi-fi in which Obama invests your money. Products that can only succeed through subsidies to producers and compulsion of consumers generally don’t win the enthusiasm of investors. Worse still, the deepening government troth perverts the entrepreneurial spirit. Instead of pleasing the marketplace millions, we seek to please a few bureaucrats.

     Barack Obama insisting that responsibility necessitates borrowing trillion more, the Great Recession has spread not-so-great ideas into the brains of the highbrains. These years rank with the 1970s, 1930s, and 1890s for tough times and weak ideas. Never has the staid establishment sounded more like a nuthouse.

     When our wallets recess, our minds do too.

The Great Recession has made us poor. Worse still, it’s made us stupid.

Congress Reminds Obama He's President, Not King

By GEORGE F. WILL

7/25/2011

 

Between 6 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Sunday, the nation began a constitutional course-correction. The current occupant's vanity and naivete — a dangerous amalgam — are causing the modern presidency to buckle beneath the weight of its
pretenses. And Congress is reasserting its responsibilities.

At his Friday news conference-sstyle-tantrum,Barack Obama imperiously summoned congressional leaders to his presence: "I've told" them "I want them here at 11 a.m."

   By Saturday, his administration seemed to be cultivating chaos by suddenly postulating a new deadline: The debt-ceiling impasse must end before Asian markets opened Sunday evening Eastern time, lest the heavens fall.

    Those markets opened; the heavens held. The faux deadline, reportedly invoked at a Saturday White House meeting by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who should resign, inevitably seeped into the media and invited overseas panic,
thereby risking the nation's currency, for brief tactical advantage.

Amid these tawdry episodes, House Speaker John Boehner signaled constitutional sanity regained: "Congress will forge a responsible path forward." Congress. Obama has marginalized himself.

 



     Constitution's 'Defect'

Inordinate self-regard is an occupational hazard of politics and part of the job description of the rhetorical presidency, this incessant tutor. Still, upon what meat doth this our current Caesar feed that he has grown so great that he presumes to command leaders of a coequal branch of government?

He once boasted (June 3, 2008) that he could influence the oceans' rise; he must be disabused of comparable delusions about controlling Congress. When he was a lecturer on constitutional law, he evidently skipped the separation of powers doctrine.

    But, then, because this doctrine impedes the progressives' goal of unleashing untrammeled government, they have long loathed it: Woodrow Wilson, the first president to criticize the American founding, considered the separation of powers the Constitution's "radical defect."

PART 2

  It has, however, rescued the nation from Obama's preference for a "clean" debt-ceiling increase that would ignore the onrushing debt tsunami. There are 87 reasons for Obama's temporary conversion of convenience to the cause of spending
restraint — the 87 House Republican freshmen.

Their inflexibility astonishes and scandalizes Washington because it reflects the rarity of serene fidelity to campaign promises. Obama — a demagogue for an age of smooth surfaces; Huey Long with a better tailor — pretended Friday to
wonder whether Republicans "can say yes to anything." Well.

House Republicans said yes to "cut, cap and balance." Senate Democrats, who have not produced a budget in more than 800 days, vowed to work all weekend debating this. But Friday they voted to table it, thereby ducking a straightforward vote on the only debt-reduction plan on paper, the only plan debated, the only plan to receive Democratic votes.

    Obama's last venture into public specificity was his February budget, which proposed accelerating the nation's descent into debt. It was rejected by the Senate 97-0.

 



   Presidential Mendacity

Although histrionically impatient with Republicans' refusal to accept certain measures, Obama insists he will "not accept" a debt-ceiling deal that does not increase income taxes. Surely this is the meaning of his July 11 words: "I do not want, and will not accept, a deal in which ... I'm able to keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income that I don't need."

    To understand Republican distrust of him, consider, from the many examples of his paltering with the truth, his July 15 news conference, wherein he veered from the subject of the debt ceiling to say "I've got three trade deals ready to go" yet they are "being held up because some folks don't want to provide Trade
Adjustment Assistance to people who may be displaced as a consequence of trade."
    The facts are:

TAA, which has existed since 1962, enjoys bipartisan support. The 2009 stimulus increased it, supposedly temporarily, and it did revert to pre-stimulus levels in February. Now, however, Democrats suddenly insist that TAA's stimulus levels be made permanent.

    Obama's wee mendacity about TAA illustrates the large stakes of the debt debate, which is a proxy for an epochal argument about the nature of American governance. Obama's money gusher has driven federal spending from under 20% of GDP to almost 25%. Democrats consider this the new normal — until it becomes the base from which they launchh their next surge of statism.

   This fact refutes those who loftily dismiss the debt-ceiling debate as much ado about not very much. And those who are loftily contemptuous of today's supposedly "dysfunctional" Washington have forgotten that the branches of government are supposed to be jealous rivals.

CURL: Is Obama a pathological liar?
By Joseph Curl
The Washington Times
July 24, 2011

“Mendacity is a system that we live in.”

- Brick, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”

    In the weird world that is Washington, men and women say things daily, hourly, even minutely, that they know deep down are simply not true. Inside the Beltway, we all call those utterances “rhetoric.”

    But across the rest of the country, plain ol’ folk call ‘em lies. Bald-faced (even bold-faced) lies. Those folks have a tried-and-true way of determining a lie: If you know what you’re saying is patently false, then it’s a lie. Simple.

   And lately, the president has been lying so much that his pants could burst into flames at any moment.

    His late-evening news conference Friday was a tour de force of flat-out, unadulterated mendacity — and we’ve gotten a first-hand insider’s view of the president’s long list of lies.

   “I wanted to give you an update on the current situation around the debt ceiling,” Mr. Obama said at 6:06 p.m. OK, that wasn’t a lie — but just about everything he said after it was, and he knows it.

    “I just got a call about a half-hour ago from Speaker [John A.] Boehner, who indicated that he was going to be walking away from the negotiations,” he said.

   Not so: “The White House made offers during the negotiations,” said our insider, a person intimately involved in the negotiations, “and then backtracked on those offers after they got heat from Democrats on Capitol Hill. The White House, and its steadfast refusal to follow through on its rhetoric in terms of cutting spending and addressing entitlements, is the real reason that debt talks broke down.”

    Mr. Boehner was more blunt in his own news conference: “The discussions we’ve had with the White House have broken down for two reasons. First, they insisted on raising taxes. … Secondly, they refused to get serious about cutting spending and making the tough choices that are facing our country on entitlement reform.”

PART2

But back to the lying liar and the lies he told Friday. “You had a bipartisan group of senators, including Republicans who are in leadership in the Senate, calling for what effectively was about $2 trillion above the Republican baseline that theyve been working off of. What we said was give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues,” Mr. Obama said.

    That, too, was a lie. “The White House had already agreed to a lower revenue number — to be generated through economic growth and a more efficient tax code — and then it tried to change the terms of the deal after taking heat from Democrats on Capitol Hill,” our insider said.

   The negotiations just before breakdown called for $800 billion in new “revenues” (henceforth, we’ll call those “taxes”), but after the supposedly bipartisan plan came out — and bowing to the powerful liberal bloc on Capitol Hill — Mr. Obama demanded another $400 billion in new taxes: a 50 percent increase.

Mr. Boehner was blunt: “The White House moved the goalpost. There was an agreement, some additional revenues, until yesterday, when the president demanded $400 billion more, which was going to be nothing more than a tax increase on the American people.”

   But Mr. Obama, with a straight face, continued. “We then offered an additional $650 billion in cuts to entitlement programs — Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security.”

    The truth: “Actually, the White House was walking back its commitments on entitlement reforms, too. They kept saying they wanted to ‘go big.’ But their actions never matched their rhetoric,” the insider said.

    Now, Mr. Boehner and the real leaders in Congress have taken back the process. He’ll write the bill and pass it along to the president, with this directive, which he reportedly said to Mr. Obama’s face in a short White House meeting Saturday: “Congress writes the laws and you get to decide what you want to sign.”

    Watching the one-third-of-a-term-senator-turned-president negotiate brings to mind a child spinning yarns about just how the living room lamp got broken. Now, though, the grown-ups are in charge; the kids have been put to bed. Ten days ago, the president warned the speaker: “Dont call my bluff.”

   Well, Mr. Boehner has. He’s holding all the cards — and he’s not bluffing.

The sad truth is that the president wanted a blank check six months ago, and he wants a blank check today. That is just not going to happen.JOHN BOEHNER SAID!! :smileyvery-happy:edos:
