Republicans need to do a better job of helping America to understand that Obama isn’t being truthful when he says he inherited deficit from Bush.

Obama is telling a half-truth and hoping Americans are too dumb or distracted to figure out the rest of the story.

Obama Points Back to the GOP’s Future

The president has made taxes and spending the big issues again.

By KARL ROVE

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123802235514741871.html

Last fiscal year, the deficit was $459 billion.

For this fiscal year, it was $569 billion when Mr. Obama took office.

Under his proposals, another $1.276 trillion will be added to the deficit this year, for a total of $1.845 trillion.

The CBO says deficits will fall for three years to $658 billion, still nearly 50% larger than any past deficit.

After that, deficits go back up every year, reaching the trillion-dollar a year mark again in nine years.

By 2019, the debt would reach 82.4% of GDP, a level not seen since 1947.

With astonishing candor, even Peter Orszag, the president’s budget director conceded these levels of deficits and debt are “unsustainable.”

(Also, Republicans need to stick to just one way of helping us to understand. The info the CBO put out last Friday stipulated that the deficit for FY 2009 will be 13.1% of GDP, for FY 2010 9.6%. FY 2008, the last year for which Bush is fully responsible, was 3.2%.

Then look at the historical data, look at the Bush and Clinton years. And looking even further back historically, one has to go all the way back to WWII years to see numbers this bad. I know we’re hurting, but things aren’t as bad as they were after Hitler invaded Poland and the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

There is more than one way to look at these numbers, but if you tell us that 4-5% of GDP is not sustainable, then you tell us 82.4% is not sustainable (should be around 40%). Then Judd Gregg, who is my new hero says 23% is not sustainable (should be around 20%).

YOU’RE CONFUSING THE HELL OUT OF ALL OF US AND GIVING THE OPPOSITION AMMUNITION!!!

Just show them this chart (America can understand a chart) which is from the Washington Post.

wapoobamabudget11

Then show them a great big chart which goes all the way back to the 30s and 40s.

Or better yet show them a chart like the following one:

off-the-deep-end

Obama won’t tell us the truth.

Please do a better job of presenting the truth.

    When I lived in Austin, Tx., I lived just a few miles down the road from Taylor, Tx. where I have seen one of the camps with my own eyes….It was also featured in a You Tube video in which Alex Jones was confronted by guards at the facility….My best guess would be that Beck was pressured from his higher ups at the Fox Network….The camps are 100% real.

    Highly Recommend This Podcast – I listened to parts of this live earlier today when I was out and about.

    Donovan Campbell with Dennis Prager.

    Listen here:

    Dennis talks to Donovan Campbell. A graduate of Harvard Business School, he finished first in his class at the Marines’ Basic Officer Course, and served three combat deployments–two in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He was awarded the Combat Action Ribbon and a Bronze Star with Valor for his time in Iraq. His new book is Joker One: A Marine Platoon’s Story of Courage, Leadership and Brotherhood.

    The Buzz: Presidential birth certificate legislation; Ron Paul rally

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/nation/story/1106876.html

    And while we’re on the subject

    It is safe to say that until last week, Bill Posey was one of Florida’s least-known members of Congress, a freshman Republican who bears a passing resemblance to Mister Rogers.

    That changed after Posey quietly introduced a bill in the House that would require presidential candidates to submit their birth certificates to prove they are really U.S. citizens.

    Now he’s the butt of jokes on late-night TV. “So, Congressman, what you should do is stop embarrassing yourself and take the Reynolds Wrap off your head,” MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann scolded.

    Posey has been portrayed as something of a nut for what is widely seen as an attempt to legitimize the fringe belief that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen.

    Dear God, help me. I agree with Koyaan!

    There are no pixel perfect repeating patterns, and to make matters worse, if I understand the directions right, the author’s only cutting out segments of the border without regard to the underlying background that shows through.

    Try making a selection rectangle that includes a repeating background pattern to the left and to the right sides of the border. Coy and paste the selection, and good luck trying to match it to any other segment of border and background — it cannot be done.

    Why do I watch this network anyway!

  21. sdee Says:

    Well Greta just wrapped the Mexico thing up with Dick Morris saying ll the violence is a last stand by the drug lords and crooked cops because Calderone has successfully been putting the squeeze on them.

    Make sense – overblow and exploit this “crisis” at the border for gun control beofre Calderone solves it permanently. Bo gets to whack our 2nd amendment and then claim credit for fixing the border problem.

    I’m ready for you

    Look in my hands it’s not what it seems
    Touch my hands I been around touch the man
    Touch the fist that can shatter your dreams

    CURL: To McCain, budget doesn’t add up

    http://washingtontimes.com/news/2009/mar/27/mccain-on-budget-it-doesnt-add-up/

    Stopping just short of calling Mr. Obama disingenuous or dishonest, Mr. McCain said Thursday that the president can’t possibly expand spending – generating more debt in a single term than was created by every president from George Washington to George Bush combined – without making massive spending cuts.

    Thus, he said, the president’s plan to cut taxes for all but 5 percent of Americans is mathematically impossible.

    Video:

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. at the Heritage Foundation on March 26, 2009:

    Although 50 million people voted for me and for Sarah Palin, mostly for Sarah Palin, that there was a sizeable majority of the other party that returned to Congress and elections have consequences.

    Elections have consequences.

    These consequences we are seeing now in full display.

    According to a spokesman for Doyle’s show, at the time when Basso was supposed to be calling in for the show, he was unavailable. Basso reached the show several hours later, explaining he had been flooded by media calls and literally was unable to call out.

    The result, the spokesman said, was that Basso promised to provide Doyle with the first exclusive interview after he meets with Obama, provided the invitation still stands after the meeting was leaked to the press.

    The spokesman said information about the meeting has not been made public, and show producers are waiting to see what develops.

    Do you think Basso understands what a Republic is? The moron has suggested abolishing the Electoral College. Somebody needs to show him the video that explains a democracy as just an unstable transitional form of government headed for oligarchy. Remove the Electoral College and you have MOB RULE! If Basso has no better understanding than that, then he is just a ranter and not qualified to speak to Obama on behalf of anyone.

    As much as everyone loves to hate Karl Rove, it’s hard to argue with his facts, which are right out of the administration’s budget and economic projections.

    He’s got a point—how can the president’s budget possibly be called a “save and invest” budget?

    Running public debt to a level above 80 percent of GNP is on a par with a banana republic.

    “Much has been made of President Obama’s recently proposed cap-and-trade, energy-tax policy that he would soon like to see implemented as a means to raise revenue for his health care reform and other big spending plans. The graph below, provided by Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI), shows the state-by-state analysis of annual per capita increases in electricity costs that would occur under a 100% auction, as President Obama has called for, to meet his target carbon emission reductions.”

    (Oh, and if you live in WY, it’s only an extra $7,000+ per year per person. Don’t worry tho – we can all move to Delaware and be Joe Imbiben’s neighbors. They only get a $22 a year increase.)

    I am growing to love Ms. Bachman. She is not afraid to stand up for the Constitution in a public forum Did you see little Timmy’s face when she asked him about telling her where in the Const. it gave him the right to do what he’s trying to do? He looked like a 1st grader caught in a lie. Honestly, he should be on stage along with his supreme leader. They missed their calling.

    I’d sure like to see a Palin/ Bachman ticket in 2012. Two strong, principled, fearless, real America loving women. Oh did I mention they are both very attractive too? I am going to follow Bachman’s career a bit and keep a close eye on her for the future. The Obots may have their hands full trying to discredit both of these women. Yayyyy, we may have found our leaders.
