“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. Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is ‘‘trillion’’ with a ‘‘T.’’ That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion”. Barrack Obama 2007
“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. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” Barrack Obama 2006
Back in 2006 and 2007 the President almost sounds like a member of the TEA Party!
Yes, we do have reckless fiscal policies and a failure of leadership. But, it’s YOU Mr. President now destroying our children and grandchildren.
One thought on “Excuse me Mr. President, but you LIE”
There is a thousand ways to impeach this American hating Tyrant Traitor yet Congress does nothing!!! Most people are even unaware of the impeachment bill put in the House at the end of 2011 because he declared war on Syria without Congressional approval. It is House Resolution bill 107. Boehner makes sure he keeps that one under the rug for his good pal Obama!
