Great Work Americans,this is what happens when you elect an alien as President!

OuaisBla's picture

Not an Alien... simply an incompetent.

Ever wonder why BO was elect as a president? Listen to the tone of its voice. Then replace it mentally by a chip munks like voice. 

Popo's picture

Obama's cloud includes "need", "like", "ask" and "want"

That about sums it up.

wtf is this BS, cut the deficit by $4T?  The defict has been cumulatively OVER $4T in his last 3 years!  If he means over 10 years, that is nothing.  That isn't even 1/4th of the way to balance.  We are running WELL in excess of $1.5T deficits annually...that is just the headline figure.  I put the real deficit at probably 2-2.5T when I looked at off-balance sheet war crap, the GSEs, real losses on real paper and the real bailouts, even assuming the crap Treasury bought to relieve the banks of it had some recovery value.  I find it incredible that the banks would have sold the prime tranches to a willing toxic waste dump like Treasury.  Treasury got garbage, the GSE's and FHA gorged themselves on toxic paper that is probably worthless.  The losses embedded in these portfolios have not been counted on the deficit sheet.  They would push it nearly a trillion a year higher.

Frauds and liars, all...

Wrong.  This is what happens when you have republican whores of the rich refuse to pay reasonable taxes.  

Uncle Remus's picture

WTF is a "reasonable tax"? Whores come in all colors and persuasions.

Central Bankster's picture

So if you want to target the rich, why is it that you support raising INCOME tax?  Why is it that when I am during the accumulation/saving phase of my life must I divert all my resources to parasites who should have been earning/saving?

Urban Redneck's picture

Wrong.  This is what happens when you have a bunch of bankers and niggers who all demand Obama makes the US taxpayers pay their mortgage.

If you refinance the existing federal debt into a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, the principal payments alone require a budget surplus of $500 billion per year, every year, for the next thirty years.  If you give the US an undeservedly high credit score, then the interest expense will only double the overall obligation, so $1 trillion per year, every year, for the next thirty years.  AND THAT IS WITH A BALANCED BUDGET THIS YEAR

If you think that the US has primarily a revenue as opposed to expense problem you are as naive as this fool -

Obama Is Going To Pay For My Gas And Mortgage!!!

Raising more revenue does absolutely no good when spending is unrestrained.  It merely digs the national grave deeper to allow for more bodies to be disposed of when the bill finally comes due.

Last I checked, most of the big bankers were Democrats, while Republicans tended to represent more white-collar middle class and the lower end of the "rich" spectrum.

bigelkhorn's picture

Yes, when you get a fake president, you get fake papers.

I subscribe to the guy from australia and his FFT economic newsletter at http://www.forecastfortomorrow.com that guy called for Obama to get in ages before he did get sworn in!!

I hate being an american, its a shame that this man keeps getting up on the pulpuit and preaching on how good the economy is, when we all know its not! What an Obumma-nation he is on our country! *weeps*

SilverRhino's picture

It has nothing to do with aliens or races or any of that bullshit.  The guy's got a voice and can read a speech.   It's not like he is actually making a policy decision.   Hell is wife has bigger balls that he does.

But basically .... if you're a dollar holder your fucked.

President Dumb Ass is getting exactly the panic reaction he wants so he can grow government. Remember, never let a crisis go to waste.

Yen under 78, swissy almost under .80 - even the shitty euro is rallying.

give him the tools of destruction and Amerika is over as we know it. This is what you get sheeple for voting this turd into office.

theopco's picture

Really? None of this would have happened if we went with "tell me what to say" McCain?

Not defending Obama, but your comment seems rather, well, naive.

TrafficNotHere's picture

Would McSame have spent over a year trying to push Obamacare?

Both sides knew this was coming but spent a year adding more entittlements.

fearsomepirate's picture

McCain is a mixed bag, meaning some good, some bad, unlike Obama, who is a pure idiot-savant sophomore socialist.  One of the things he had in the "good" column is that he has always been more of a deficit hawk than most of the rest of the GOP.  So no, I don't think we'd be looking at $1.4T deficits with a President McCain.

I actually read and understood what you wrote and it wasn't until almost the end of the first line, that I realized "these words are all mispelled". LOL

KennyG09's picture

Same here when I first read it.

Is the word cloud set to ignore pronouns?


I would expect to see I and me among the more prominent words in Obama's cloud.

Love the word clouds, Tyler!  +14.6

The main problem with Obamas speech was where he gave it. I didn't enjoy hearing about the austarity measures I am going to have to suck up, while looking at the royal red felt gilded chairs in the background of the East room. Poor choice of locations.

Hearst's picture

Great observation. He walked away all awkwardly at the end looking a little disappointed like he was holding back tears. While Boehner just stood there at the end of his speech and smiled.

NumNutt's picture

Funny, I was watching the speech and thought the same thing. Kind of got the immpression that he was bent out of shape because he had to get up off his throne and walk down the royal hall to tell the peasants that they are all fucked unless the king gets what he wants. King Obama the asshole.

I see a Peanut vs a Buffalo. Whadday'all see?

DXY = 73.68  and FALLING.   Default BITCHEZ.   Credit Downgrade Bitchez   :)


GOLD SILVER GUNS FOOD  Liberty or Death!

OuaisBla's picture

DXY is performing a falling wedge!!! If that is proven true. Silver and gold bull you are in deep shit. LOL


Falling wedge are the bulliest pattern of all. Be careful.


Otherwise... same business a usual.

But... a rule of the thumb. Never trust them, bernak and al. NEVER.

Ie. Short cevering on the green back most likely IMO.

So 73.60 a strong buy. 74 is breakout in one of two days at best.

seems all the congressional websites are crashing left right and center.

Obama concluded

That’s who we remember.  That’s who we need to be right now.  The entire world is watching.  So let’s seize this moment to show why the United States of America is still the greatest nation on Earth – not just because we can still keep our word and meet our obligations, but because we can still come together as one nation.

Boehner concluded

There is no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt. Break its grip, and we begin to liberate our economy and our future.


Which has more substance and is grounded in reality ?

i-dog's picture

Which one will have the sheeple shouting: "Hell, yeah! ... USA! USA! USA!"

Samual Adams's picture

I hate lots of shit.   Among that lots of shit is Oblama's Speech Writer, and White House Press mouth diarrhea Carney.

Just ONCE I'd like to hear Obama call the country a "republic".... 

Goldenhands57's picture

America gave up being a Republic and became an Empire in 1917, Steverino.

I thought it happened in 1913...

To the trash with the speeches.  Lets see the line items in these proposed Bills, and then hear the crowd roar.

partimer1's picture

Why the fuck come out to give a speech and the solution is nowhere to be found? They are further apart after they open their big mouths.

bsdetector's picture

President Obama seemed more reasonable than Speaker Boehner.

bsdetector's picture

I can't believe I am getting these negatives. We have a president with a D denomination and he is willing to touch the third rail of politics. The cuts he was promoting are not the crap that Senator Reid is talking about. From what I am hearing, President Obama is willing to look at entitlements. And yes, I wholeheartedly want to see taxes go up for the top 10% of earners. And yes, I want to see corporations pay taxes. Sorry folks if this is a disappointing point of view from someone who follows ZH with a passion but I believe he is being reasonable. 

Urban Redneck's picture

"Bending the cost curve on Medicare..."

What comes out of his mouth is ENTIRELY MEANINGLESS.

The several thousand pages of text camouflaging his true intent which will inevitably give more money to those who don't need it and do nothing to control, much less reduce, unsustainable government spending, are far more important.

The political clowns could simply email a word processing document back and fourth and mark the damn thing up in redline- but no- they just like having people watch them run their worthless mouths on TV.
