Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

WASHINGTON (AP) - “That wasn’t me,” President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One. It actually was him - and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years - who shaped a budget so out of balance.

And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.

Obama met citizens at an Arnold, Mo., high school Wednesday in advance of his prime-time news conference. Both forums were a platform to review his progress at the 100-day mark and look ahead.

At various times, he brought an air of certainty to ambitions that are far from cast in stone.

FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a LIAR! Obama is trying to make himself look as if he is totally innocent and like he is the one sent to save us. His divine mission in life. Of course we ALL know that Obama is as full of SHIT as a Christmas turkey is dressing!

The poser in chief wants the American people to love him, he expects our adoration, unconditional love and a vote of confidence from the USA. He doesn’t want much, he just wants it ALL, and he’s not earning anything, he is demanding, and lying his way into the most devastating crash this nation has ever seen. And when it does happen, of course it won’t be HIS fault, I think we ALL know that.

Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama’s last two years as Illinois senator. Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush’s final months - a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.

Read this story from AP, it’s one of the best I have ever seen from them, it may not be online too long.

Obama: Let’s hope lessons of Katrina were learned

Obama: Let’s hope lessons of Katrina were learned

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Barack Obama expressed hope Saturday that the lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina three years ago would help to protect the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Gustav this time. His running mate, Joe Biden, urged people to pray that the levees in New Orleans hold.

Obama and Biden visited a diner in this Youngstown suburb, an area that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton carried during her failed presidential bid. Trying to connect with those who are economically struggling, the Democratic candidates and their wives chatted with diners and told reporters that a properly orchestrated evacuation would be key to protecting the Gulf Coast.

“It wasn’t last time, and hopefully we’ve learned from that tragedy,” Obama told reporters as he left the diner, heading to a memorial service for the late Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress. She died Aug. 20 from a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm.

Obama and Biden planned another joint appearance later Saturday in the Columbus area.

Obama: Let’s hope lessons of Katrina were learned

Barack Hussein Obama is one of the stupidest Dems to ever draw breath! This is the man that would be president of the USA, this is the man of NO experience, NONE. Not military, not business, not as a community leader, not as a Mayor, not as a Governor, NOTHING, other than being a JUNIOR Senator that doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground!

He “hopes” that lessons were learned from Katrina?

Pay attention you dimwitted imbecile! Louisiana learned the lessons, they dumped Blanco, a pandering Democrat that is even dumber than you are, and that is hard to imagine.

New Orleans has learned NOTHING, they still have *Chocolate* Ray, they have Warren Riley and they still have the welfare mentality that made New Orleans the debacle it is.

Here’s something a lot of Dem libs and *nanny state* moonbats don’t understand, 1st response is the job of the city, the Parish and then the state, IN THAT ORDER. 1st response is NOT the job of federal government. During Katrina the government in Louisiana ceased to function, Blanco wasn’t in danger, she was in Baton Rouge with her head buried in her fat ass crying “Oh my God, what do I do? Why isn’t the President helping?”. Nagin deserted his city and took his wife and kids to Dallas, where they still live today.

Lessons learned Barack?? You betcha there were lessons learned! Katrina gave everyone a real hard look at what this nation could be like if the Dems are ever allowed to take full control. The state of Louisiana learned a HUGE lesson, New Orleans didn’t.

Let’s hope that America pays attention to how an effective Republican and Conservative Governor takes care of business, the Honorable Bobby Jindal.

The Guard is in place right now, the entire Louisiana Army National Guard is activated, there are many troops already on station with more troops are on the way. There is a massive response ready to react to any eventuality. Response, or, more precisely, lack OF a response, that was the downfall of the nefarious Kathleen Babineaux Blanco.

Dem Governors sit on their asses and watch as their cities gets washed away, sit on their asses and do NOTHING except wait for someone to come in and do it for them! Conservative Governors are planned out so far in advance that only the hand of God can hinder their full response to the needs of their people!
