"Mean Streak: Obama is Not as Nice as he Looks"

...only they should have used this picture!

From a Washington Examiner editorial:
"...Obama invited House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to George Washington University to hear his Wednesday address on the federal government's dire fiscal situation. The speech was advertised by the White House as a major address in which the president would join the serious conversation initiated two weeks ago by Ryan in his detailed proposal for cutting spending. What Obama instead delivered, with Ryan sitting in the front row, was, in the Wall Street Journal's unsparing description, a "poison pen" speech dripping with mean-spirited partisanship, gross misrepresentations of fact, and sophistry of the lowest sort concerning Republicans' alleged desire to hurt old people, the poor and mentally challenged children. It was the sort of harangue one would expect from a rabidly devoted partisan hack, with no relation whatever to the thoughtful appeals to reason and common values that historically have characterized presidential leadership in this country."


We have some of the audio from this less than Presidential speech here.

Obama then spent Thursday evening regaling an audience of Democratic donors with what he thought were off-the-record insider jabs about his recent budget negotiations with House Republicans, including this cheap shot at Ryan: "When Paul Ryan says his priority is to make sure he's just being America's accountant, that he's being responsible, I mean this is the same guy that voted for two wars that were unpaid for, voted for the Bush tax cuts that were unpaid for, voted for the prescription drug bill that cost as much as my health care bill -- but wasn't paid for. So it's not on the level." The reality is that the Iraq and Afghanistan wars under President Bush were regularly funded by Congress, claiming tax cuts must be "paid for" is a hoary piece of Democratic class-warfare demagoguery, and the prescription drug plan Ryan supported cost half as much as the Democratic alternative then on the table. Such fact-free commentary is to be expected from blind partisans, but not the president of the United States.

  3. BHO is an SOB. He's called himself a ruthless pragmatist, which is code for petty tyrant.

  5. mr. O.lives well beyond what he implements on his subjects in USa... he is living well beyond his means, on taxpayer dime...he is milking America for all she is worth..and laughing...in the midst of his empty promises, thru his lies... his true intentions are revealed every day....
    Is this the kind of President we want as Americans? Is this the kind of leadership we, as Americans want? what are our troops dieing for, if America has been the problem? why is Obama sending our troops here and there to defind a nation, he truly hates? and is trying to transform it into a nation of socialism/communism? to kill off the troops, who defend our country? hmmm?
