Obama has failed to pass a budget since he took office in 2009: “America has been without a budget for the past four years and counting. We go from continuing resolution to continuing resolution to keep the government funded.” Now, Obama says he’s going to break the law and release his 2014 budget to Congress 2 months late.
Incredibly, Obama has the nerve to slam Republican Paul Ryan’s 10-year budget plan which essentially “shows that we can balance the budget in just a decade without any new taxes and still increase spending if we get rid of the massive cost of ObamaCare.” Maybe Obama should propose his own budget plan before he criticizes Republicans’ budget plans. Senator Jeff Sessions said it best: “Will he ever commit himself to a plan? He has been very effective in criticizing others.”
Apparently Biden isn’t enjoying being part of the most hateful, divisive presidential administration in U.S. history– and being compelled to call Romney and Ryan liars who “don’t have much character at all.”
Update: Oh, now it all makes sense: Biden isn’t proud to be Obama’s Vice-President, because Biden believes he’s actually the President.
“I’m proud to be President of the United States.” — VP Joe Biden
During debt-ceiling negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” the White House informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan that it plans to break the law by missing the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress.
Obama knows he’s a failure– in 2006, he had these harsh words to say about then-President George W. Bush, who added less national debt during his 8-year term than Obama added during his first 4-year term:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” — Obama
Yes, we have a failure of leadership in the Obama Administration– and Americans deserve better. Well said, Obama.
