President Oblahblah: Republicans' "You're On Your Own" Economy Is "Thinly Veiled Social Darwinism"

Subhed:

President Primarily Known For Taxing and Spending
Urges More Taxing and Spending

The "You're On Your Own" Economy? How about the "I Don't Have A Dozen Stranger's Hands in My Wallet" Economy?

The Resident spoke earlier today. My stopwatch-manipulation was not perfect, but I believe he spoke for 46 hours and 22 minutes.

He talked about "sharing" and such.

[]Resident Barack Obama on Tuesday called the Republican budget passed by the House last week "thinly veiled Social Darwinism," as he attempted to sharpen differences between his economic vision and the GOP's ahead of what's likely to be a contentious re-election battle.

The Republican plan is a "Trojan Horse disguised as a deficit plan," Mr. Obama asserted in a speech to newspaper executives at the annual meeting of the Associated Press. "It's antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everyone who's willing to work for it."

...

Mr. Obama [today said Republicans would] "impose a radical vision on our country."

Their vision, he said, includes gutting the things the U.S. needs to grow—education and training and research and development—and is "a prescription for decline." Mr. Obama said the Republican budget would "dramatically" reduce benefits the middle class receive for health care, retirement and homeownership.

...

Mr. Obama said if the budget became law it would affect a laundry list of programs. He said two million mothers and young children would be cut from a program that gives them access to healthy food; hundreds of national parks would close; and cuts to the Federal Aviation Administration would "likely result in more flight cancellations, delays and the complete elimination of air traffic control services in parts of the country."

He said several times, "I am not exaggerating."

...

The president also criticized former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by name, which he rarely does, saying the Republican presidential candidate called the Republican budget "marvelous."

"He even called it 'marvelous,' which is a word you don't often hear when it comes to describing a budget," Mr. Obama said to laughs from the audience.

What kind of effete bisexual uses a word like "marvelous"?

On that "investing" point -- we no longer spend, you know, we only "invest" in the present, and, as debt accumulates, we increasingly invest in the past -- it's time to cut up this Marvelous Metrosexual's "investment" Mad Money credit cards.

Another solar company, heavily "invested" in by President Precious, filed for bankruptcy.

Solar Trust of America’s Chapter 11 filing on Monday listed assets between $1 million and $10 million, and liabilities between $50 million and $100 million.

It owes somewhere between 5 and 100 times what it owns.

Obama's got that magic touch, doesn't he?

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and California Gov. Jerry Brown were on hand last June when Solar Trust broke ground on a 1,000-megawatt project in California. The project was touted as the world’s largest solar power plant and a keystone of the Obama administration’s efforts to promote solar energy.

Speaking of investments, I've recently diversified my investment portfolio to include dousing a stack of money with lighter fluid and setting it aflame.

So far, it's yielding disappointing returns. But I have every confidence.

Biden: GOP Budget Would Result in Dead Cops and Firemen: Same themes, using cops and firefighters as the Magic Victims.

Biden said it’s a question of public safety, but also of first responder safety.

“There’s one thing we know: the more cops on the street, the fewer cops get killed. The more firefighters responding to a fire, the fewer injuries to the firefighters, because you have each other’s backs,” Biden said.


They always talk about cops and firefighters. What about civil service bureaucrats and teachers? Is anyone gonna die if a Home Ec teacher doesn't get her scheduled 3% raise?

Thanks to Ben (@benk84)
