But I’m sure that Barack Obama means well.
Isn’t this just the cutest thing?
If the video doesn’t load, Breitbart TV pulled the relevant quote:
“My plan says we’re going to put teachers back in the classrooms, construction workers back to work… Tax cuts for small businesses, tax cuts for hiring veterans, tax cuts if you give your worker a raise. That’s my plan. Then you got [the Republican's] plan which is ‘let’s have dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance’… So far I’m feeling better about my plan.”
Now, of course, President Obama is trying to upset the GOP with silly little statements like that. He’s trying to get our goats. Because if he gets our goats, maybe we won’t respond with things like this:
You see that dark blue line? The one that promised us that we’d be at 6.5% unemployment and dropping right now? Yeah, that represents Obama’s “plan” for unemployment.
Or how about this?
See those very, very, very long lines? The ones representing our insanely burgeoning yearly budget deficits? Funny thing: that represents Obama’s ‘plan’ for fiscal responsibility.
And then there’s this epic, almost impossible-to-excerpt graphic of how the poverty rate, unemployment rate, average weeks unemployed, median income, health insurance premiums, number of jobs, inflation rate, food stamp usage, average gasoline price, average SFR home value, national debt, and of course deficit have all gotten worse since January 20, 2009. Guess what? That was the fallout from Barack Obama’s “plan” to run the country. But to be fair, he’s certainly running the country.
Right into the ground.
PS: For those wondering why I’m not bothering to answer the President’s allegations re Republican motivations and plans, well, my response is as follows: given President Obama’s staggeringly incompetent track record, why should any sane man or woman take those allegations seriously in the first place? Did American politics suddenly adopt the mercy rule?
