"Schoolyard Crap:" Obama's Posture of Pure Posturing Not Moving the GOP
Senator Thune: The Best Way To Get A Meeting With Obama Is To Set Up A Tee Time

The "only adult in the room," as Obama's new campaign theme goes, wants to pretend that repealing his own tax break on a microscopic economic input like corporate jets is just what the doctor ordered to fix a $1.7 T deficit per year, and rising.

One of President Barack Obama’s 2012 themes will likely revolve around what his aides call “the contrast” — a portrayal of Obama as a responsible, moderate adult harassed by infantile Republicans who favor the wealthy.

You know what's infantile? Pretending that a budget item that's counted in the millions of dollars has a damn thing to do with a $1.7 Trillion deficit (and rising).

Obama, you know the rule when you do your <'s and >'s, right? The hungry crocodile turns towards the bigger meal.

...

The girls, he said at the end of an otherwise sleepy session, “generally finish their homework a day ahead of time,” unlike the grousing Hill Republicans he described as dragging their feet in striking a deal on reducing the deficit and extending the debt ceiling.

“Leaders are going to lead, … that’s why they are called leaders,” he added, making an unmistakable reference to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who withdrew from the negotiations with Vice President Joe Biden last week.

Yeah you said it buddy, leaders should lead.

Wait, you said that?!

You're leading the shit on this microscopic repeal of your own "stimulus" tax break for corporate jets, I concede.

“It’s time for the president to stop lecturing and start doing his job,” responded Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring.

Another GOP aide was more blunt. “It’s counterproductive schoolyard crap. … [It’s] awfully childish for the ‘adult in the room,’” the aide told POLITICO.

You stupid dick.

The article goes on to say that this is aimed at bringing the public around to his side in the debt ceiling brinksmanship.

He needs a lot of help-- the public is pretty firmly against any more debt. They are against him. They want spending cut.

And not just "tax expenditures" cut.

Update: Oh My. Senator Thune: Best way to meet Obama is to set up a tee time.

More.
