blah blah blah
All men with ties, lie.
You can take that to the bank.
Only to have it stolen from you.
By a man in a tie.
You can certainly take that to the bank.
No fucking shit. So far it's been words, words, and more words. No concrete solutions, no word on cuts on the programs where it's necessary (but would cost jobs), no word on cuts to the military - nothing. It's just more bullshit spawned about "we know the problem, we know how to solve it, we will move forward with it".
"Without getting into details, a lot of hard choices will have to be made, there's will, balanced budget deal... we believe it's possible..." blah blah fucking blah.
"He takes it very seriously."
"That's like saying... you'd put a gun to your head and pull the trigger. Is that wise? I don't know"
That's why you're a high paid official. Apparently, you can't even tell if pulling the trigger is a wise move.
Oh, and apparently starting infrastructure projects is blasted as GOOD while at the same time talking about deficit reduction. Jeez, the insanity here is just boundless.
How long before the MSM discovers that his ramblings aren't doing their credit ratings any good?
that was rhetorical, right?
VAMANOS!!! ... no....OBAMANOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then as now: Leaders Lead and Politicians Make Speeches
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
+ 80 proof
i watched almost 43 seconds of this B.S. just to get beat to my comment by an internet tough guy
Can't take more that 2 minutes
Only a matter of time before O'Bummer has to save his own hide by announcing a "shock and awe" stimulus plan, tax cut, or some other Hail Mary pass to rescue his legacy.
Why else would XLY and XRT be pricing in a consumer spending boom of collossal proportions in 2012 - 2013?
1 to 10 Robo , 1 to 10 , thats all i ask. Is that a 9?
That one was pretty lack luster, I would guess no more than a 3.
couldn't resist (10)
...and gold be up $30
I agree, an announcement of supreme idiocy has to happen. Perhaps the announcement of Paul Krugman as Treasury Secretary.
Now that would be idiocy. Krugman is very valuable to them where he's at now. Well, at least as long as the herd pretends to read him.
That's an almost philosophical question there, Robo.
Robot gets junked again by frustrated, masochistic shorts.
But Robot is right. The Pres needs to put grimy Dinero directly into the hands of the roiling, unwashed masses. This will buy him Love and kick the momo over the edge to where it needs to be to vanquish his Republican foes. The move will also hasten a market Celebration and further fuel inflation; both of which I personally welcome.
Zero sum game. You pays yer money and takes yer chances. Why fight the Fed?
I'd rather watch porn.
I resemble that remark.
better be careful with the x rated stuff if you live in florida. there is an avalanche of civil lawsuits over copyright protection... of x rated movies.
florida about to institute rocket docket - part deux - to protect copyrighted porn
the SEC certainly does
I'd rather watch Casey Anthony doing porn.
If she doesn't get a good book deal, you just might.
Is he going to speak in his native Kenyan?
Why not have his crack birth cert. team print up some US Treasury checks. How hard is that?
It took them 18 months to make 1 paper....
Even if they printed 100 billion on every check, they wouldn't cut it.
Nop.... WE NEED OURSELFS BENNY B. TO SAVE THE DAY!!
Good point! You are right on today!
That was a good one Bastiat. You owe me a keyboard.
Following the earlier news that government retirement accounts have been plundered by the most since the breach of the debt ceiling,...
It doesn't matter if the actual accounts are fully funded, empty or invested in cattle futures; a federal employee defined benefit plan is as good as gold.
Are you referring to barbaric relic meme of the MSM or the gold referred to by the survivalist crowd? I assume the former?
And once again, the Arrogant One makes his minions wait to hear his golden voice.
I'll bet he hasn't touched Secret Service pensions!
those are secret, remember ;)
Funny story: I don't know what the deal is now that they've moved SS to Homeland Security, but in the old (Treasury) days they were in the DC police and fire pension system. A retired agent told me: "best public pension around -- why? A DC cop once told me they've got something on just about every worm in Congress." This was in the 1970s.
To reduce the deficit, Obama has decided that all the funding for the construction of the cold fusion reactors which would provide near free energy will be cut. Also all the new free schools, free hospitals, libraries, new roads... will be stopped.
NOW THAT WILL CLEAR THE DEFICIT IN 1, 2, 3!!!
Is free basing OK?
He said "balanced approach" pretty early on.
"Balanced" as in "tipping point"
Oh gods..... please stop posting that photo of him. Everytime i see it, i want to punch into my TFT-Screen...... i mean, even harder than when i usually see him.
No, keep using it. Reminds me what a shit-eating grin Wall Street sellout he is. It's a little known fact that the picture in question was taken 3 seconds after he removed his face from Blainfein's ass.
Eww. Is that why it's all brown?
Cheesy Bastard, Oh no! you didnt! Too funny. I think since about 1976 or so, when i started waking up a little, I can't stand to watch any of these mofo potemkin presidents after about 4 weeks of campaigning, before they even get elected! Face smash pic fo sho. Keep it!
