The debt ceiling debate and Presidential chutzpah (Video)

By The Political Commentator

debt ceiling debate

The debt ceiling debate: President Obama lectures the Republicans on work ethic and on how things gets done!

Presidential finger-pointing, defensiveness and the presidential thin-skin on full display during the Obama debt ceiling debate press conference yesterday.

President Obama, to use a term from the lexicon of his "good friends" the Jews, has an enormous amount of chutzpah.

For the uninitiated, chutzpah is defined as having shameless audacity, nerve and cajones (not as in courage but as in the aforementioned nerve to make certain statements).

In those statements yesterday chastising the Republicans for not having the same amount of focus and work ethic as the Obama children when it comes to the debt ceiling debate, the level of chutzpah was off of the charts.

BTW is it only permissible to bring children into the conversation when it is politically expedient to do so?

When he talked about his leadership and the things he has accomplished in office, the level of chutzpah was off of the charts.

When he spoke of the tough decisions that he has made and the time he spends in Washington focused on the work that needs to be done (such as putts that need to be made) the level of chutzpah was off of the charts.

Note to the President: Just because you say something is so, doesn't make it that way! The Obama record stands on its own and it is not a pretty picture!

A video of audacity and nerve, aka chutzpah!

    The Democrats will go around saying that if we don’t raise the debt ceiling we will default on our loans.  That sounds to much like the used car salesman telling you that if you don’t buy that car now it will be sold to somebody else in the next hour or two. Maybe we will default or maybe we won’t.  I’m sure there are plenty of accounting tricks available to keep that from happening.  But what if we do default.  It might be the best thing for us.  It might get peoples attention and will mean we pay higher interest rates on any more borrowing.  So, the obvious answer is:  Do not borrow any more, period.  Cut back on expenses.  And I propose the first place to start.

    As of right now all top echelon government salaries are now cut a flat across the board 35%.  That starts with the President, the Vice President, all the members of the House and Senate,  the President’s Cabinet, the heads and first two levels of all government agencies, and the members of the Supreme Court . This includes all the Czars and the chief officers and their deputies.  These salaries will stay at this level and cannot be restore to their previous levels until the budget is in a balanced condition for five continuous years.  If during that time the budget gets un-balanced, then you start counting the years over again.  If we did this you can bet the budget will get balanced, and quick.

    This is just a strange pipe dream, of course, and it will never happen.  Every time there is a cut to be made you never hear of the characters at the top losing anything.  Oh no, they keep their salaries and their perks and often even get raises.  It’s everybody else that suffers.

    Maybe it will happen if enough of us get behind it and push and scream loud enough.  Can you see a presidential candidate bringing this up and working hard for it?  It will guarantee that person the election.

    We can only dream.  Pass the funny tobacco.

      Oh, yeah.  No cost of living adjustments either.

    I couldn’t agree more with this article!  However, what do you expect from a man who thinks he can do no wrong, and everything he does do is so much better than anyone else.  He’s a compulsive liar who deliberately tries to portray himself as an excellent statesman and leader!  In reality nothing could be further from the truth and everyone should be focusing on that without any trepidation!
