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.

yes Abraham Lincoln was a railway lawyer (total scumbag) and a murdering thug and it didn't get much better anytime since ...Govt just attracts scum, probably because it's the toilet of every country

On "tax cuts for the rich shall end"...cue up the HFT scalpers to explain to our President just how wrong he is.

Might as well eat some glue instead.  This is pathetic.  I am surprised he still has supporters.  Party ticket voters make me want to die.

More theater of the absurd. Just what we need.

We have no "fear" of change as long as the cuts/savings  are made "by the year so and so"

Boo fucking hoo, it's all the last emperor's fault.

And the band played on, what a fucking pimp. Your credit card is maxed out bitch.

I can't believe this guy is lecturing about the interest on the debt, when he is hugely responsible for it.

Give me 5 seconds with the Obama dude and I would knock those pearly whites so far down his throat it would look like his asshole had teeth.

I'd want to see him get wrecked by a mixed-martial artist.

a once a week yoga duffer could whip his ass.  I mean fuckin look at him.  He's pathetic.

I mean he very clearly THINKS he's awsumz at basketball because the fucking teams he invites by like NC and whatnot let him put some buckets in for a photoop.  And he probably thinks he's killer at golf because everyone kisses his ass.  That's all anyone has ever done his entire life is asskiss because he's the negro that absolves the whitey guilt imposed on them by a legion of "civil rights" orgs and media interestingly dominated almost exclusively by ONE ethnic group.

He slacked his way through the ivy league undergrad, Harvard, everywhere, he was a present voter in the state senate, national senate, and the powers behind him have bulldozed any real opposition he ever had while rolling a red carpet out in front of his sorry ass.  He's nothing, literally nothing...has the air of a dude who catches about him too

you had me @ yoga duffer.

trav, you crack me up† like my new avatar picture? that is the samurai sword i am going to take out the nigger with.

Johnny Lawrence's picture

He never looks forward.

Bill DeBurgh's picture

He'd lose his place on the stage right and left teleprompters.

I have an alternate proposal Barry, dissolve the union and repudiate the BS debt.

Problem solved.

A Tobin tax might "fix" the budget but not the actual root problem.

... someday, in a presidential term far, far away, so far away that all living politicians will have libraries named after them (or dead and forgotten, but having died very rich as lobbiests or GS board members), then, and only then, will we have austerity. Count on it.

I believe Risk assets are not the place to be.

Oh yes they are. Everything but stocks! Watch for the USD reversal and back much lower.

The ultimate social blow job.  To the sheeple it feels good, and they can get on with pro baskebcall and all that other shit..... They will ultimately wake up, too late.

There has never been a democracy which has not destroyed itself.

Cole Younger's picture

The U.S. shifted from a Constitutional republic to a Constitutional democracy when it passed the 17th amendment. Anyone can buy, sell, or trade, any  Senator if they have enough money. The states basically lost representation under the 10th amendment and so the soap opera of unfunded mandates to out right black mail for federal funds became a reality. We lost the republic some time ago. No one with half of brain (that understands what a republic is) can argue differently.
