WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA?--Monday Midnite



Yes, what in the world is wrong with Obama? When is he going to realize that being Mr. Nice Guy is rendering him a weakling of a President? I mean, 64% of the public supports Obama's plan of a balanced mix of spending cuts and tax hike for the super-rich in the ongoing debt ceiling fiasco, yet he's backing Senator Reed's plan that has no tax increase in it.... all in the name compromise. 'Listen up Mr. President, that's no compromise. That's simply laying flat on your face and allowing Republicans to stomp all over you.'



Republicans are eating Obama alive on spending.....even though their mind-boggling spending under BUSH Jr. got America and the entire world into the current economic turmoil. Check out the FACTUAL statistics compiled by CNN.



BUSH SPENDING:

(1) MEDICARE/PRESCRIPTION DRUGS---$180 BN
(2) TARP--------------------------------------$224 BN
(3) DISCRETIONARY SPENDING---------  $608 BN
(4) STIMULUS PACKAGE 2008-------------$773 BN
(5) DEFENSE SPENDING-----------------$1,469 BN
(6) BUSH TAX CUTS--------------------- $1,812 BN

TOTAL-----------------------------------$5,070BN




OBAMA'S PROJECTED SPENDING (THROUGH 2017)

(1) DISCRETIONARY SPENDING-----------$274 BN
(2) THE SO-CALLED OBAMA CARE--------$152 BN
(3) STIMULUS TAX CUTS------------------ $425 BN
(4) STIMULUS PACKAGE--------------------$711 BN

TOATAL-----------------------------------$1,440 BN





The above STATS clearly shows that Obama's PROJECTED spending through 2017 is more than three times lower than what the Republicans spent under Bush. Yet they are the one ranting and raving over spending, and Obama is taking a serious pounding being Mr. Nice Guy. This is unacceptable. 'Toughen up Mr. President. You can be nice and strong at the same time.' 




With the deck stacked against him public opinion-wise, Bush Jr. was still able to muzzle one wrong policy after another through congress because he was tough. Obama on the other hand, is about to make a notorious history as the first President to take America into default even though his plan is supported by majority of the people.

Reagan raised the DEBT CEILING 17 times.
Bush Sr. raised the DEBT CEILING 5 times.
Clinton raised the DEBT CEILING 6 times.
Bush Jr. raised the DEBT CEILING 7 times.

ALL WITHOUT notable tussle. Why is it suddenly different with Obama?
