Watch Obama Make More Impossible Promises About The Budget

Tyler Durden's picture

Two years after Obama promised to cut the budget in half by the end of his first term (it appears he was confused by math symbols: he meant divide by half), here he is again, reading from the teleprompter, and making a bunch of senseless promises that have no chance in hell of coming true. Most notably, Obama will promise to cut $4 trillion over the next decade.  Of course since by $2020 the budget deficit will be measured in quadrillions, a $4 trillion cut out of $X quadrillion is actually perfectly feasible. Which is why we take back everything we said: Obama will absolutely come through on his promise.

I think he tried to use the word "save" as well but just couldn't get it out.

Don't shoot him and make him a martyr; could you imagine the Douche-a-crats making a Federal holiday for this idiot!?!

Amen.  Plus, look what the blacks did when Rodney King got worked over by LAPD.  Something happens to Obama and they'll burn down this whole country.

I just want to slap him and tell him how dumb he is... And the smiling picture of him that TD uses for his articles makes me cringe...

O obviously took the blue pill.

This is where I want to be when everything blows up... On a warm beach, with a cold drink, with my hot wife (hopefully how I got my cold drink :-) and no electronic devices to hear about how bad things are... 

Ruffcut's picture

That's what I'm doing next week. On NC beach condo with hot wife and cold beer. No computer bullshit and ponzi capital markets. Trying to get out of positions before I go, but goldman and cramer have given me rock solid advice so my money will be gone by time I get back.

Who exactly are the two retards in that video, and why is the retard on the right typing into his laptop? Supposed to make him look busy and less like a retard?

I couldn't even read it.  After the first couple paragraphs, I threw up a little in my mouth.

I think the banksters have concluded Obama is no longer useful and now will completly discredit this POTUS.

Bob's picture

Post-speech, I'd have to guess that you might be right.  But that would mean I believe that he meant what he said.

I promise to put all legislation on the internet for 5 days for a public review.  I will not sign anything until the 5 day public view is up.  I promise to not ram through healthcare and I will actually read the bill before I sign it, ayit.

Jackass is late again, as usual.

Dolar in a vortex's picture

Thank you! He's worse than Clinton for being late.

I think it's because he manages minute by minute with too little planning.

not a jackass.....just c.p.t

I see they've cut out the middleman.  Now just an empty podium with a teleprompter that's turned around.

slaughterer's picture

We can read the shitty text on the teleprompter ourselves.  Why do we need Obama to read it to us?

"but the young people like obama"

They won't when they have to pay off the 1.6 trillion in deficit this year.

But by then, progressives will have figured out how to blame the deficit on the tea party and scary Christians.

Young people are stupid and inexperienced.

43 old white men never bowed to a Chinese  Premiere, a Japanese Emperor, a Arab King, et al.

Chinese, Japanese, Arabs are often/largely racists, but even their more derided internal ethnic groups rank above outside blacks and whites (especially American). 

How do you think they perceive the black man bowing to one of their own?  What racial stereotypes and hierarchies of Americans might be reinforced in their minds when  when the black man bows and the white man doesn't?

Men look each other in the eyes and shake hands firmly.

It is not that difficult a skill to master.

trav7777's picture

you don't want to shake hands with 3rd worlders who don't use toilet paper.

The proper etiquette to a jap is to make sure he bows deeper than you because we as americans outrank them.

The ahabs you kiss on the cheek same as french.  Because they wipe with their fuckin hands.

We are drowning in debt.  My state, my country, our world is drowning in debt.  Pure and simple.  It is really gonna blow up.  Every bank has Tepco.  Every bank has Greece like debt on balance sheets.  The holders of debt are in debt.  Governments holding debt are in debt.  Debt is everywhere.

Only the Central Banks don't have debt.  How do they do it?
