Obama: “Raising the Debt Ceiling… Does Not Increase Our Debt”

Who are you going to believe? Us or your lying calculators?

In other news, a Congressional authorization to allow Obama to bomb Syria will not lead to a war. Black actually is white, war is peace and slavery is certainly freedom. Also believing his crazy lies does not make you an idiot.

It makes you a Democrat.

Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t increase the nation’s debt, Pres. Obama declared in a speech today.

In a speech at the Business Roundtable headquarters in Washington, D.C., Obama dismissed concerns about raising the debt ceiling by noting that it’d been done so many times in the past:

“Now, this debt ceiling — I just want to remind people in case you haven’t been keeping up — raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt; it does not somehow promote profligacy. All it does is it says you got to pay the bills that you’ve already racked up, Congress. It’s a basic function of making sure that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved.”

Someone in Obama Inc. came up with this “Pay our bills” crap because they decided it tests well on Main Street and now it’s come full circle with Obama declaring at, of all places, a business roundtable, that raising the debt ceiling does not promote profligacy.

Maybe he could get away with that at a kindergarten or a meeting of Shopaholics Anonymous, but does he really think that even the dimmest Crony Corporate goon is going to nod along to that as if it weren’t complete insanity?

Obama went on to suggest that “the average person” mistakenly thinks that raising the debt ceiling means the U.S. is racking up more debt:

“It’s always a tough vote because the average person thinks raising the debt ceiling must mean that we’re running up our debt.”

The average person who can… count.

    And Obamacare will reduce your insurance premiums. The more the media fail to hold Obama accountable for his lies, the more brazen Obama’s lies become. . . until he will end up saying something that even the idiot sheeple who voted for him begin to doubt.

      They will never doubt their “Messiah”. He will always be right and if his plans don’t work as advertised,well,it’s Bush’s fault or someones else. Never his.

    Even Orwell couldn’t have predicted Obama.

    • jakespoon

      We have to change the language from “Orwellian” when talking of “doublespeak”-to “Obamian”. Orwell obviously didn’t have enough imagination.

  • Gamal

    Does the fact that the United States can’t pay its bills without borrowing and printing money create confidence in the “the full faith and credit of the United States”?

    Not only is he a failed President with respect to foreign and domestic policies, but he also failed logic and common sense, but then these are not strong points with radicals and communists. He had to have been one of those “affirmative action, minorities must graduate and must show good graduation rates for minorities regardless of achievement” student. How else would anyone explain his idiotic comments, his and the other genius in the administration, Joe Bidet( that’s French)

  • TheOrdinaryMan

    Question: Why does the debt ceiling need to be raised in the first place? Actually, I’m thinking of the lyrics from that tune, “Anything Goes.”

    THIS MORON IS A LYING PIECE OF EXCREMENT AND ANYONE WHO BELIEVES ANYTHING HE SAYS BELONGS IN A MENTAL INSTITUTION.

    I agree with the article – when you raise the debt ceiling, just like when you increase your credit card’s spending limit – it immediately adds more debt. Just a few months ago, I hit my credit card limit and I got a credit increase. Immediately, my debt on that card went up. I don’t know how it happened, maybe because I bought more stuff, but I think the sheer fact that I increased my credit limit automatically and immediately added more debt to the card. I might also have bought some stuff I shouldn’t have or maybe got a raise at work (maybe both) but it’s definitely because I raised the limit, not because I got more stuff.
    Just say no to the debt ceiling! We cannot afford to borrow more money on stuff we already purchased.

      You are all a bunch of idiots. Until you get a Republican President back in the WH, you will never be happy. See what not raising the debt ceiling will mean for this country and the future of your children. You would just assume play Russian roulette then give this President any room to govern. You use the false outrage of incidents like Benghazi when you did nothing about the lies of WMD in Iraq which were clearly impeachable offenses since the President and his administration (Defense, CIA and State are all under GOP control with his appointees) mislead Congress and the American people (about 1000x more people were killed by this act then the four poor souls in Libya). You are all a bunch of dried up neo-cons who are sore losers and whose ideology is not even remotely close to the teachings of any religious book. Keep deluding yourselves that you really care about anybody but yourselves.

        Despite the obvious fact that saddam sent his weapons to SYRIA, which even syria said a month or so ago that if america did anything about the chem weapons issue, they’d unleash an arsenal no one has seen before on israel…….

        Yea, except we HAVE seen that arsenal before… in Iraq…………….

        Honestly can say I hate republicans just as much as democrats because both sides lack any accountability for our current situation. You have democrats calling out repub for lack of regulation, and repub calling democrats free loaders etc. Both sides have points against why each other are bad, but both sides dont reflect on it at all, because their problems is what actually makes the parties what they are. Generally the lower class are democrats because of the lack of personal responsibility, whereas republicans receive their support from the wealthy/corporations.

        **** both parties and **** obama… I can’t respect a person who was voted in primarily because hes black and secondly because hes a democrat(because of all the morons who vote for “their” party because its “their” party.) Wanted to break my TV after seeing interview after interview when he was voted in, with…

        “who did you vote for?”

        “Obama”

        “Oh, what do you think of his /insert policy”

        “Uhhh I dont know…..”

        Or

        “Yea, im part of progress, I voted for a black president.”

        How can you say “until you get a Republican President back in the WH, you will never be happy?” Now you sound like than idiot. The Republicans are the reason our country is in the shape its in and responsible for the economic chaos that America is in right now. Our government spends more money than the revenues that they generates each month. That is why our country is in debt, you can’t blame Obama for everything thats happening in this country it was already a mess before he got in the WH. Before Bush and Cheney got in office, people had jobs, they were able to support their families and the economy had more than it needed, but when they arrived in office, what happened? Start cutting taxes which benefits only the wealthy while the middle class income was declining. Bush and his administration mislead the American people. That man did whatever he wanted to do and you still kept him in office. He was no better than Obama. Bush screwed America and he didn’t give a damn about it. You need to quit judging Obama. I am pretty sure your life is not perfect and you are not all that. One day you will be judge and everything you have done and those little hidden things in your life will be exposed!!!

      According to Obama, “Raising our debt ceiling …. does not increase our debt.” So obviously, all reports in the press of the debt increase of $328 Billion on Thursday have to be lies.

      Because honored and esteemed Obama would not lie to us. After all — he is the President — he has been in office 5 years — he wants us to trust him — and all the closures of monuments and beaches and parks also have to be lies — why would President Obama want to hurt US citizens —- anyone who would close the monuments, memorials, parks, beaches to US citizens would have to be a sadistic, divisive, vengeful, bitter, angry, hateful, unpatriotic, unfeeling, cold, scheming, hurtful person who is following the Saul Alinsky bible “Rules for Radicals” which Saul just happened to dedicate to “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment ……. Lucifer.”.
