Obama Vows to Shrink Government by Making Government Bigger

A former Biden aide said that Obama was “financially illiterate”, but he may just be plain old illiterate.

Obama’s current economic plan for the next four years is to “break” Republicans and force them to do everything he wants by threatening to use sequestration to wreck the country and the military. This makes Clinton’s government shutdown look good by comparison.

Once Obama has pulled that off, he’s going to raise taxes and cut Medicare. And then he will, in his own words, “Be able to shrink government and create jobs through infrastructure projects, like building roads.”

Not only is this the same exact proposal from four years ago, which he made a mess of, even with a Democratic majority in Congress, but he doesn’t appear to understand the definition of the word, “shrink” and his job growth plan is more of the same “shovel ready” jobs and stimulus plans that ran us into trillion dollar deficits.

Other words that Obama doesn’t understand include, “Debt” when he says, “‘If we’re spending 17% of our GDP on health care, and every other country is spending 11%, and their outcomes are better, that difference is 6%, that’s our deficit and our debt.”

It’s actually neither of those things. Nor is every country spending that much. The numbers vary widely by country. The problem is not the demand on services, that Obama would like to meet with rationing, but the growth of a vast bureaucracy surrounding health care. ObamaCare is a template of the kind of policies that lead to runaway spending and the government bureaucracy that eats up most of the money then begins rationing care and killing the elderly to protect its own structure.

If you liked the last four years, then you’ll love a second term of the same thing.

    If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country.

      Yeah, rich DEMOCRATS. They pretend to care about you but they really, really only want your vote and your money. And your undying devotion. That is all.

      Nobody outside a few crackpots actually cares about the birther thing. However I do find it troubling that he spent much of his life growing up outside the US, not simply in a country like Canada, but a 2nd-world country like Indonesia, where opinions of Americans is heavily influenced by the propaganda their own government puts out. Obama cannot connect with how fellow Americans live.

      I heard that someone said that Obama was GWB in blackface…

        Barry himself is the source of the birther nonsense. I have no doubt he’s a US citizen, but he won’t let anyone see his college records for a very good reason. And that may be that he fraudulently applied to Harvard and/or Columbia as a foreign student, and had his tuition paid by foreigners. This is where the rumors of him not being a US citizen have their source.

          Oh yeah, there was a pamphlet from the early 90s where the back of it said he was born in Kenya. It was from his own office!

          • joe get

            I reckon he claimed to be either Kenyan or Indonesian on his applications, and spent those years not so much telling people he was, so much as not dissuading them he wasn’t.

      I will THANK everyone who votes against this clown, this Liar-In-Chief, this amateur Chicago political hack, this "community organizer", this fraud, this phony, this danger to America. Good riddance! Don't let the door hit you in you arse on the way out.

      Of course, obama and the left's troubles are everybody's fault but their own.

      "We've got to pass it to find out what's in it," is a hard one to top in the ethically challenged bamboozling department. I guess you missed the demonization of Bush that goes on to this day.

      I'll pass on giving hits to your race videos. Of course, to oppose obama is racist.

      Dude, as a political commentator, you're an okay artist The birther thing was started by lawyers working for Bill and Hillary during Hillary's run fo rthe WH. For an interesting article on the "rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country" check out this article…

      If Obama loses this election, it will be because the rich leftists weren't able to bamboozle the voters.

      • joe get

        The reason why the Clintons’ lawyers had anything to work with in the first place was because Obama himself had started the doubts about him being a US citizen.

      Damn, you are such a loser. Let's see your numbers for taxing our way out of the deficit, even if we assume taxes don't hurt productivity (which they do).

      Show us your numbers, or is this just your "gut feeling?" Why didn't Obama propose already what you suppose is such a clear winning tax package?

      Delusional liberals.

  • joe get

    There isn’t going to be a second Bathhouse Barry term, so no need to worry about it. He loses, and loses big.

    • Mary Sue

      yeah, the spiritual successor to Jimmy Carter is going to get the same Karma in elections.

      Though, if there is quite a lot of fraud on the dem side and thus it's read as "close", there will be a bigger mess than when Al Gore threw a hissy fit in 2000. Who knows what will happen then…

      • joe get

        It’s not going to be close…Romney will get at least 300 ECV.

        • Mary Sue

          Oh I hope it's a carteresque landslide for Romney but you never know with today's dems and voter fraud….

  • patience

    And he is rebuilding the middle class,the 95% of jobs lost because of him.

    Taxing the $250,000 + at a rate of 39% is another great idea ,since over 300,000 people in that bracket lost their income under Barry.

    Raising taxes on millionaires will net him about $500,000 since the majority of them pay zero.

    But he can destroy so much more to please his liberal and muslim worshipers .

    • Mary Sue

      yeah, raising INCOME taxes on millionaires won't do a damn thing. Mainly because most millionaires don't earn "income" as it is taxed in the tax code. It's rather taxed as dividends and capital gains.

      HOWEVER

      Upping the capital gains and dividend taxes is bad for the economy, something Obama doesn't know anything about so I wouldn't put it past him…
