| Obama bullies pulpit some more — Here’s yet another law Obama doesn’t care about: the law of diminishing returns. Last night he gave yet another televised address on the debt ceiling, breaking into “MasterChef” and “The Bachelorette” and other shows people actually wanted to watch, saying nothing he hasn’t said countless times before — corporate jets, “balanced” approach, it’s Bush’s fault, why can’t those stupid Republicans be bipartisan like me, everything’s going to fall apart if I don’t get what I want, yadda yadda yadda — and clearly getting frustrated that it isn’t working. TheDC’s Neil Munro reports: “President Barack Obama used his televised speech to the nation Monday night to paint a lurid picture of U.S. debt default if the GOP doesn’t raise the debt ceiling enough to continue the administration’s spending until after the president completes his 2012 campaign. Obama did not threaten to veto a short-term measure, but presented an alarming vision of a default, urged a tax increase, and then called on Americans to press their legislators to pass a debt ceiling deal that would be large enough to cover spending until 2013… Moments later, House Speaker John Boehner pushed back hard, saying it is time ‘to end the spending binge in Washington.’ Boehner briefly outlined his own two-step plan to raise the debt limit and set similar cuts, finishing by saying ‘we’re up to the task, and I hope President Obama will join us in that work.’” Obama’s not going to fall for that one. Listening to people who disagree with him? Taking ideas seriously even though they’re not his? What’s bipartisan about that? P.S. You know why there were no American flags behind Obama? He’s tired of the competition. |
Thats not the reason. He read that study that showed seeing American flags made people more patriotic and more Republican.
