The reckless, incompetent, inexperienced, unqualified, and treacherous Barack Obama continues to play reckless games with the American economy.
As we wrote yesterday, Barack Obama and his fellow callow boys, like Timmy Geithner and Chrisy Dodd, think they are casting big shadows but as Lin Yutang wrote “When small men begin to cast big shadows, it means that the sun is about to set.”
Today the Congressional Budget Office issued another warning that the American economic sun, because of Barack Obama, is setting:
President Barack Obama’s budget would generate deficits averaging almost $1 trillion a year over the next decade, according to the latest congressional estimates, significantly worse than predicted by the White House just last month.
The Congressional Budget Office figures, obtained by The Associated Press Friday, predict Obama’s budget will produce $9.3 trillion worth of red ink over 2010-2019. That’s $2.3 trillion worse than the White House predicted in its budget.
Worst of all, CBO says the deficit under Obama’s policies would never go below 4 percent of the size of the economy, figures that economists agree are unsustainable. By the end of the decade, the deficit would exceed 5 percent of gross domestic product, a dangerously high level.
While PINOs and Big Media praised the Obama “budget overview” we immediately saw that it was an entirely bogus document based on entirely bogus “Rosy Scenario” razzle dazzle.
Barack Obama who wants to spend, spend, spend, has already declared that the new realistic numbers will not slow his determination to spend, spend, spend.
Obama’s AIGita is that Americans will wake up and try to stop his destructive attacks on the American economy.
The latest figures, even worse than expected by top Democrats, throw a major monkey wrench into efforts to enact Obama’s budget, which promises universal health care for all and higher spending for domestic programs like education and research into renewable energy.
The dismal deficit figures, if they prove to be accurate, inevitably raise the prospect that Obama and his allies controlling Congress would have to consider raising taxes after the recession ends or paring back his agenda.
But without referencing the figures, Obama insisted on Friday that his agenda is still on track.
Barack Obama has AIGita because the American people might wake up in time to thwart his destruction of the American economy.
Already strong Democrats are beginning to speak out, a dangerous venture in this Hopium addled thug menacing atmosphere. The great and wonderful Democrat Maxine Waters (a strong Hillary Clinton supporter) says Obama is “not up to speed” and that he has “got some explaining to do” because the AIG story thus far is a big old Obama flim-flam lie.

Yesterday, we asked the question “Who are these little boys playing reckless games?”
During the Democratic primaries Michael Wolffe, a prominent writer for Vanity Fair wrote that Hillary Clinton’s allure was she does not have sex: It’s partly around this consensus view of her not having sex that people support her or resist her. She’s the special-interest candidate of older women—the post-sexual set.
For Wolffe, Barack Obama was hot, in more ways than one: Against these middle-aged people, he’s the naturalist, the credible and hopeful figure of a man who actually might be having sex with his smiling, energetic, and oomphy wife.
Michael Wolffe is now, too late, off the Hopium. Now Michael Wolffe has a simple answer to our question “Who is Barack Obama?” Wolffe answers: Barack Obama = Jimmy Carter.
Sheesh, the guy is Jimmy Carter.
That homespun bowling crap on Jay Leno, followed by the turgid, teachy fiscal policy lecture, together with the hurt defensiveness (and bad script for it) that everybody in Washington “is Simon Cowell… Everybody’s got an opinion,” is pure I’m-in-over-my-head stuff. Even the idea of having to go on Jay Leno to rescue yourself from the AIG mess is lame. Be a man, man.
Now, Obama is not a man. Now Wolffe does not think Obama is so hot.
The guy just doesn’t know what to say. He can’t connect. Emotions are here, he’s over there. He can’t get the words to match the situation.
This began, I’d argue, from the first moment. He punted on the inaugural. Everybody ran around like crazy trying to praise it because if Barack Obama couldn’t give a speech then what?
We called the inaugural speech a total dud, worth watching only because it unintentionally clued Americans in on the fact that Obama was and is a back-slapping George W. Bush numbskull. Now the Hopium addled addicts are repeating what we have said almost verbatim.
But now, at week 11, we’re face-to-face with the reality, the man can’t talk worth a damn.
You can see the fundamental mistake he’s making. Having been so successfully elected, he’s acting like people actually want to hear what he thinks. He’s the great earnest bore at the dinner party. Instead of singing for his supper, he’s just talking—and going on at length. The real job of making people part of the story you’re telling, of having them hang on your every word, of getting the tone and detail right, the hard job of holding a conversation, he ain’t doing.
He’s cold; he’s prickly; he’s uncomfortable; he’s not funny; and he’s getting awfully tedious.
He thinks it’s all about him. That we want him for himself—that he doesn’t have to seduce, charm, surprise, show some skin.
We think Obama will replace George W. Bush as “worst President ever”. PINOs are at least waking up that Obama will be worse than Jimmy Carter.
It’s instructive and humorous to remember that Carter ran a brilliant campaign that succeeded largely because his voice was new. Simple, direct, basic, human. And then, of course, he turned into a sad-sack twit
We’ll discuss next week, the so-called Obama “brilliant campaign”.
Who is Barack Obama? Barack Obama is the frat boy type who makes fun of those less fortunate, those who do not exactly fit in to his not very bright, Joker-smile, back-slapping, flim flam world:
The first appearance by a sitting president on “The Tonight Show” may well end up being the last.
President Obama, in his taping with Jay Leno Thursday afternoon, attempted to yuk it up with the funnyman, and ended up insulting the disabled.
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.
“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.
It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.
Obama revealed his character with his infamous “You’re likeable enough, Hillary” answer in a New Hampshire debate. With his snide, ugly, imperious, snub of the disabled Obama once again revealed the content of his character.
Obama is too busy preening before his ever-present telePrompter at costly spectacles to do any real work.
For many Americans who could use a bailout just to balance their checkbooks and make it through the month, the thought of their tax dollars going to million-dollar bonuses for AIG executives is enough to make them furious.
“It’s difficult to comprehend how screwing up gets you rewards,” said George Padilla, a teacher in El Paso, Texas. “I tell my students that if they don’t put in the effort and get passing grades, I will not pass them.” He added: “I use the old `In the real world …’ line to point out that you would be fired if you didn’t do well in your job. Well, I guess `the real world’ proved me wrong.” [snip]
“Wasn’t Obama supposed to fix this?” said Maria Panza-Villa, a mother of two in Hillsboro, Ore. She said she has lost three jobs since November as one employer after another folded.
No Maria, Obama won’t fix this.
Obama is too busy at his reckless games to work.
