HDR 178: Cut, Cap and Balance – A Strike-Out For Obama?
ALOHA, ALL!! The “Cut, Cap and Balance” vote is set for tomorrow (Tuesday.) While Barry calls this just a political move by the GOP that has no teeth, in reality it sends a strong message: we’re tired of out-of-control government spending. We’re also tired of no leadership from 0bama or the Democrats on how to cut spending and decrease the debt. Barry thinks we don’t need a balanced budget amendment….of course not! He wants to keep spending like a kid with his parent’s credit card: Obama: ‘We Don’t Need a Balanced Budget Amendment’ | CNSnews.com House Speaker John Boehner said it best: “We’re in the fourth quarter here. Time and again Republicans have offered serious proposals to cut spending and address these issues, and I think it’s time for the Democrats to get serious as well.” Here’s a good overview of what Cut Cap and Balance is all about: Cut, Cap and Balance – By Andrew Stiles – The Corner – National Review Online Call your Congressional representative and tell him or her to vote “yes” on Cut, Cap and Balance. It’s easy – just go here: URGENT: Tell your Congressman to vote YES on the ‘Cut Cap Balance’ Act | FreedomWorks Meanwhile, Barry, you’re at the bat…unless you’d rather golf again.
It’s all yours, Barry. Obama Owns the Debt-Ceiling Fiasco – Common American Journal “The president has made a bipartisan agreement even more difficult by declaring certain spending off-limits to cuts. Mr. Obama’s “untouchable” list includes his $1 trillion health-care reform, $128 billion in unspent stimulus funds, education and training outlays, his $53 billion high-speed rail proposal, spending on “green” jobs and student loans, and virtually any structural changes to entitlements except further squeezing payments to doctors, hospitals and health-care professionals.”
EXCELLENT overview!!!!! A Brief History of President Obama’s Fiscal Record | Committee On The Budget “Despite newfound concern with the debt overhang stifling economic growth, President Obama’s record falls far short of his rhetoric. Let’s review the decisions made by President Obama and Congressional Democrats over the past couple of years, and the disappointing results of their policy choices…”
This is one of my favorite political videos…very clever and entertaining. It’a also very pertinent to what’s happening now – will obama strike out?
Barry’s cousin is at it again. WOLF: ‘German Miracle’ Barack Obama doesn’t see – Washington Times “Mr. Obama cannot see the obvious lessons of the German Miracle: Unleash the free market, unshackle entrepreneurs and workers from big-government controls and we, the free people of the United States, can rescue our economy and create our own 21st century American Miracle.” Wanna bet this guy doesn’t get invited to Thanksgiving dinner at the White House?????

She’s just SO DARN busy now!!! Pelosi Says She’s ‘Almost Too Busy’ to Continue Listening to Debt Talks | CNSnews.com “The only thing I hope he doesn’t ask us to do is go to Camp David. That goes beyond the pale. Driving down the street for these meetings is one thing…” Aw, poor Nancy Nitwit – how dare anyone ask her to drive into the Maryland woods!
ICYMI: Court: ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ will stay in place – Yahoo! News “The military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy is back in place for the time being, with one major caveat: the government is not allowed to investigate, penalize or discharge anyone who is openly gay.”
More good news. Chavez Imperiled | FrontPage Magazine “Despite weeks of deception and affectation of good health, Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez is in Cuba for chemotherapy, heightening speculation about whether he’ll still run for re-election in 2012 and how the regime will survive after him.”
Just who are the special interests? Watch this and you’ll see. Hint: it’s not those nasty corporate jet owners (thanks to Ruth for the link):
