It's not just that, but he keeps talking about the need for a balanced approach (a combination of tax increase and spending cuts) to solve our budget problems, but only offers to raise taxes.Obama is the one that came up with them. He was trying to call the R's bluff. They called it back. Now he's whining.
The republicans offered to sit down with he and the democrats and replace the more painful cuts with other cuts that would be less painful and they refused, unless some of the cuts were replaced with more tax increases ... this after they already raised taxes at the end of last year, without making any cuts, whatsoever (they actually added more spending if I'm not mistaken).
On what planet is raising taxes 7 times the amount you are cutting a balanced approach?
So instead of negotiating less painful cuts, Obama's plan has been to keep them as painful as possible, INTENTIONALLY, and go on the campaign trail preaching on and on about how devastating they will be in an attempt to force republicans to agree to off set some of the cuts with tax increases. It's completely dishonest, because the republicans for weeks have been asking him and democrats to replace these so called devastating cuts with other cuts that are less so, and they REFUSE!
The f'd up thing is, most people are buying the crap that man is selling and polls show that most folks agrees with him!
Like I said, we live in a country where the majority is completely ignorant. If you wonder who could possibly fall for those Nigerian banking email scams too, they all voted for Obama!
We should just divide the country in half ... in a few generations the liberal half will devolve into monkeys, and we can have their half back, lol!!
