To Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm) it is like November 2010 never happened. Obama took to the airwaves last evening to push his case for raising taxes on Americans in order to pay for the out of control spending that he is now known for. Obama warned that if his bluff was called he would take his message to the people and he did. Fine but he said nothing that amounts to anything.
The first thing he did was blame George W. Bush for the problems we have. The reality, according to then Senator Obama, is that there is a problem because of lack of leadership, and that is Barry’s leadership and not Bush’s who has been out of office for over two years. Remember, it was Obama who said asking to raise the debt limit was a sign of failed leadership.
So after Obama blames Bush he goes on an over 4000 word rant about the situation we are in (that he and the Democrats have put us in) and he said that we need to raise taxes on the rich (defined as those making over $200,000 a year who Obama called millionaires) because they need to pay their fair share. The rich pay almost all the income taxes in this country, period. But Obama wants them to pay their fair share.
Fair to liberals is when you bring a pie to a party, they cut the pie so that they get almost all of it and you get a little sliver. Then they demand you buy another pie for them because you are able to, they deserve it and they have the right to tell you how to spend your money.
Anyway, Obama blamed all of the problems on the Republicans and said they would not compromise. That means they will not raise taxes. Yep, Obama tried to divide and conquer by saying that some Republicans (like Speaker Boehner) want to compromise but the freshmen (read Tea Party backed members) would not go along. He is trying to undermine Boehner and cause fractures among the Republicans.
But that won’t work.
I think I can sum this up and do so by using Obama’s own words. Obama is dismissing the November elections and driving on as if they had never happened. He is asking for compromise and saying that he wants certain things done. He wants a say in the matter.
When Obama first took office and Republicans were in a meeting with him they expressed some of the things they wanted to do and he basically told them that what they wanted did not matter because, “I won.” Obama believed that he got to do things his way because he won the election and that the Republicans or their opinions did not matter.
Fine, but Mr. Obama, last November the Republicans won. They have a very large majority in the House and they have an agenda. They were put in office to hold down spending and cut taxes. They were not put in office to compromise with failed liberal ideology.
In other words Mr. Obama, THEY WON.
They won so they get to do things their way.
That is the standard you set for dealing with compromise.
So deal with it.
Never surrender, never submit.
