Obama: Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal
President Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats’ demand for tax increases.
“The American people are sold,” Obama said. “The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically.”
Throughout the press conference, Obama blasted Republicans for ignoring what he said is the will of the American people by rejecting tax increases that would balance out spending cuts in a debt package.
“This is not an issue of salesmanship to the American people,” Obama said.

Obama: Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal
Yesterday, July 15th, I made a post entitled Obama and the Democrats: Liars and Fear Mongers, it now appears I left off a couple of other names that can be attached to the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.
Fool, moron, idiot, moonbat, delusional Socialist SOBs, America hating trash, any number of words can be used to describe what Obama and Company are and what they are doing to this nation.
Obama is trying his very best to ‘sell’ his financial plan to America, failing to ‘sell’ it, he is prepared to force it off on the American people, he will shove his Socialist beliefs down our throats whether we like it or not. No sane, thinking person is SOLD on this lunacy and if Obama believes they are, he is a fool.
“I hope [Republicans are] not just listening to lobbyists and special interests … I hope they’re listening to the American people as well,” Obama said, citing “poll after poll” showing Republican voters, as well as Democrats, believe in taking “a balanced approach” — including both increased revenues and spending cuts in a plan to cut the deficit.
Obama isn’t listening to the American people, if he was, he would be frightened out of his wits. The Democrats aren’t listening to the American people, if they were they wouldn’t be supporting the most destructive President ever.
The GOP is no better; RINOs run the GOP, there is no big Conservative power base, the power of the GOP is Republican In Name Only, RINO.
Sadly, there are RINOs lining up to support Obama in this travesty.
With the recent revelation that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to allow President Obama (or any president for that matter) to have the ability to raise the debt level without Congressional approval, we must all ask if we even want this man as a political leader anymore. McConnell is starting to sound like a Democrat who wants to spend, spend, spend instead of fixing the problem. It’s also an indication that he is not willing to make the right hard decisions and live with the political consequences. He needs to read the closing line of the Declaration of Independence: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” SOURCE
I don’t know if Mitch McConnell has gulped down a glass of Obama Kool-Aid or not, but it sure seems like it to me.
And if you need even more proof that RINOs are destroying the USA just as much as any Dem/Libber, Reid, McCain praise McConnell’s debt ceiling ‘back-up’ plan, any time you’re not fully convinced that Obama and the Democrats are WRONG, just look at the biggest RINO in the herd, Sen. John McCain, and see where he stands and who he is standing with and supports.
I don’t blame just Obama the Democrats that are taking America over the edge, the GOP and it’s nefarious ne’er do wells are just as guilty.
From the original story:
Obama repeated his warning that the country is “running out of time” to avert a financial “Armageddon.”
“We should not even be this close on a deadline,” Obama said. “This is something we should have accomplished earlier.”
America should have never elected Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency, but given the choice between McCain and Ms. Mooseburgers, well, I’m not sure that McCain would be any better. Ms. Mooseburgers would still be the VPOTUS and a do nothing figurehead spouting off much like Joe *Gaff a Minute* Biden.
Obama said he is still pushing for a “big” deal to raise the debt ceiling by the Aug. 2 deadline despite the hardening of positions on Capitol Hill.
“I always have hope,” Obama said. “Don’t you remember my campaign?”
Yes, we DO remember your campaign, and the majority of Americans are paying daily for the lies and BULLSHIT that your evil, thuggish regime, your Chicago community organizer and Union slug style offers us.
How so many American could have been bamboozled by the *rock star* hype and persona isn’t hard to figure out actually. Look at who watches Dancing With the Stars, America’s Got Talent and the like. Many Americans are oblivious to what’s going on around them and are in a near catatonic state that allows them to fall for, and accept anything offered.
White Democrats were told that if they didn’t vote OBAMA they would be considered as racists and would be ostracized by the Democratic party.
Traditionally, unions, Blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals and Jews have been the stalwart of the Democratic party. Homosexuals I can understand, the Dems are tolerant of them and have supported their efforts to have traditional marriages and of course there is the Code Pink crowd, they are Dems for the same reasons. Unions I can understand, crooks seem to always support their fellow crooks.
Blacks and Hispanics support Dems for reasons known only to them, I can see no logical explanation for their unwavering Democratic support, the Dems have victimized Blacks and Hispanics for well over 200 years.
I have a few friends that are Conservative Jews, I have asked them to please explain to me why so many Jewish people support the Democratic party and Obama in particular. My friends can offer no logical explanation there either.
All I know is this, and I believe it with every fiber of my being; if Obama isn’t ousted soon, by recall, impeachment or the like, or, barring that, if we don’t vote out Obama, the libbers, RINOs and socialist scum that we now have in power, if we are so stupid that we allow Barack Hussein Obama to continue for another four years in office, the United States will be nothing more than a distant memory and an obscure page in history.
We are well on our way to Third World status my friends, unless We, The People rise as one and change that, it’s all over but the crying.
I want to send a big Texas tip o’ the Stetson to my cousin, John Witzell. He knows my political likes and dislikes as well as anyone, and he is the one that sent me the link that inspired my post today.
