our fearless leader President Obama was flip flopping on automated manufacturing while thinking all of us had the memory of a rock. This week he is acting like a total hypocrite by bad mouthing congress for taking a break during a “crisis”.
In an animated rant that livened up an otherwise subdued press conference, President Obama today lit into Congress for failing to reach an agreement to raise the country’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling as an Aug. 2 deadline approaches, despite repeated urgings by the administration to do so. At one point he even reprimanded lawmakers by noting that his two daughters manage to do their homework ahead of time, a diligence rarely seen on gridlocked Capitol Hill.
This coming from the same man who, as of June 16th, 2011, has played 70 rounds of golf since coming into office. The hypocrisy doesn’t end there though, for you see it was purely congress who ran up the bill.
“These are bills that Congress ran up,” he noted. “The money’s been spent. The obligations have been made. So this is not a situation – I think the American people have to understand this – this is not a situation where you know, Congress is going to say, ‘Okay, we won’t buy this car or we won’t take this vacation.’ They took the vacation, they bought the car, and now they’re saying maybe we don’t have to pay or we don’t have to pay as fast as we said we were going to. That’s not how responsible families act. We’re the greatest nation on earth and we can’t act that way. So this is urgent and it needs to get settled.”
Emphasis mine. Obama pushed for the trillion dollar bailout, he pushed his medical “reform” bill, and ultimately he has spent faster than any other president in history. Don’t believe me, here’s just the graph from my previous post on this again:
He talked about being financially responsible prior to getting elected and then he spent money like a crack addicted hooker finding a millionaires credit card. The health care bill is costing ton’s of money and even costing thousands of people their jobs. Why else was the waiver program such a hit? Yet that was the best thing for a country who as Mr. Obama has put it “shouldn’t be buying the car”.
Mr. Obama can easily be put in the dictionary as a definition for the word hypocrite.
Obama is the epitome of a leader who says, “Do as I say, not as I do.” The thing is, that is not what makes a good leader. A leader does so by example. I just hope that I’m not the only one that sees the hypocrisy flowing from that man.
