Obama to warn Republicans on budget tactics
Reuters ^ | July 25, 2013 | By Mark Felsenthal

Posted on 07/25/2013 6:05:16 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

President Barack Obama will use the backdrop of a busy commercial port in Florida to warn congressional Republicans on Thursday that using the threat of government shutdown or debt default puts a fragile economic recovery in jeopardy.

Obama has said repeatedly that his primary focus is to restore economic stability to a middle class that is still wobbly after the deep recession of 2007-2009. That aim has been sidetracked since his re-election last November by his efforts to pass gun control and immigration legislation.

It has also been overshadowed by controversies that have kept the administration on the defensive, such as the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service and revelations of widespread surveillance of citizens' phone and internet records by the National Security Agency.

Congressional Republicans, concerned about a large budget deficit and bills to come due in the future as a result of government retirement and health programs, want spending cuts and lower taxes as part of the budget process.

Despite Obama's desire to change topics, his efforts to launch infrastructure repairs are emblematic of his frustrations in getting Congress to agree to his economic agenda.

A government shutdown might be the medicine the economy needs.

The demagogue is in Florida today.

ObamaCare is the greatest threat to this economy should be the talking points from Republicans. They’ll blow this opportunity too.

In the old days, the Congress had control of the purse strings.

“Obama has said repeatedly that his primary focus is to restore economic stability to a middle class that is still wobbly after the deep recession of 2007-2009. That aim has been sidetracked since his re-election last November by his efforts to pass gun control and immigration legislation.”

In other words, Obama was sidetracked from his disinterest in the economy by the time it took to eliminate human rights (to self defense) and eliminate the political opposition party through inflating the voter rolls with Democrats much like FDR tried to inflate the US Supreme Court with socialists in the 1930s. In reality, Obama’s primary interest is a third-world kind of socialism and economic health is distasteful to him. There are obvious things Obama could promote to encourage economic health such as tax breaks, relaxed labor regulations, trade promotion, and innovation encouragement which he has never even mentioned. At best, he admonishes business to hire more people as if this were simply a matter of mood among business owners.

Par for the course with Reuters. As if just because Obama says it, it's a fact. The last part is an in your face lie, the kind of lie that is insulting to one's intelligence. The economy has been in a tail spin since 2007 . Then again if they are not going to question Obama's lies why not throw in a few more of their own?

"Fragile" recovery? I thought he said it was a robust and vibrant recovery?

I am so confused...it must be those dastardly Republicans again...just like that fat, black broad in the orange dress on Hannity two nights ago was insisting!

Obama is coming to Chattanooga Tn next Tues. to tout the new hiring by Amazon. It’s ironic because Amazon located to TN because of lower tax rates and tax incentives.

Reeling from his failure to achieve his stated goal of “Fundamentally changing the United States of America, Communist Tyrant B. Hussein Obama has embarked on another expensive road trip to try to sell his Commune-Style power grab of 1/6 th of the US economy by promoting the idea that increased Federal debt is the best way of salvation for the over-taxed Middle Class.

The problem is not with Obama, as he is just doing what his Communist trainers have taught him to do.

The problem lies with the sorry House RINOs who keep John Boehner as their useless Speaker.

Nothing is going to help Commie Obama more than to keep John Boehner on as Speaker of the House.

Boehner has repeatedly stated his baseless fear that “If the Republicians stand up and oppose Obama we might be blamed by the Liberals for __________________(Fill in the blank).”

Rather than taking the fight TO the enemy, in this case the inexorable attempt to turn our Republic into a Communist State, Boehner has consistently shown that he is not a fighter.

It is time during Commie Obama’s con-artist tour of the remaining Liberal bastions in America for us to demand from our sorry House RINOs that they depose scardy-cat Boehner as Speaker, and install a FIGHTER worthy of our trust in his/her record of defeating Communist Con-Artists such as B. Hussein Obama.

What say all of you?

Hey, let's all come back to Planet Earth here.  If we were to fall back into that horrible "deep recession of 2007-2009"--

--it would be an improvement.

He [and the other Republican politicians]listen to their consultants [who probably are working for the Democrats] instead of their constituents. That is why they lose election after election. That is why they always cave to the Democrats. On second thought, the reason they do not listen to their constituents and always cave in to the Democrats is because, like the Democrats, they have no core values or principles to guide them. But yet they are elected and re-elected. The reason given: They are better than the Democrat.

In recent years, here in Florida, we have had a woman judicially murdered. A woman who had committed no crime, let alone a crime worthy of death. A woman who was unable to defend herself. Also, we have and an innocent, decent man charged with a crime when the only thing he did was successfully defend his life from a criminal who wished to take it. Both these events happened on the watch of a Republican Governor. In the woman's case, it was a Republican judge who issued and signed her death warrant. Their also happened to be a Republican State Attorney and a Republican Sheriff. The Republican State Attorney did nothing to help her. The Republican Sheriff aided and abetted the sentence of death being carried out, even arresting a child who did nothing more sinister that to try to offer her a drink of water. The method of death? Deprivation of food and water until she died. The only difference between their actions and those of the Democrat lawyer was they did not orgasm while describing her death throes at the press conference as he did.

Boehner. Doesn’t. Care. No fight in him, at all.

While the kenyan is insulting us from coast to coast the beltway GOP is pushing amnesty on us.

If our Reps in the GOP refuse to engage the marxists there is no point supporting them in the trenches. We simply have no credible opposition party now.

ZerO, if you cared at all about the economy, you wouldn't have forced through Obamacare and the myriad of regulations. The economy would have made a strong recovery and it wouldn't be so 'fragile'.

What an evil man.

To: Oldeconomybuyer; All
A reminder for all who wish to see the economy grow, provide freedom and opportunity for citizens, and assure liberty for future generations: we might wish to be reminded of the original "miracle of America."

The Miracle of America

from

axes and hoes to high technology;

log cabins to air-conditioned condos;

horsedrawn wagons to autos, planes, and rockets;

scarcity to abundance; &

from tyrannical government rule  to individual liberty

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

Most of our history books don’t tell us that, in the beginning, the pilgrims established a communal economic system.  Each was to produce according to his ability and contribute his production to a common storehouse from which each was to draw according to his need.

   The assurance that they would be fed from the common store, regardless of their contribution to it, had a peculiarly disabling effect on the colonists.  Taking property away from some and giving it to others bred discontent and retarded employment.  Human nature was the same then as now, and before long, there were more consumers than there were producers, and the pilgrims were near starvation.  Governor Bradford, his advisors, and the colonists agreed that in order to increase their crops, each family would be allowed to do as it pleased with whatever it produced.  In other words, a free market system was established.  In Governor Bradford’s own words:

                “This had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corne was planted than other waise would have bene by any means ye Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deall of trouble, and gave farr better contente.  The women now wente willingly into ye field, and tooke their little-ons with them to set corne, which before would aledg weaknes, and inabilitie; whom to have compelled would have bene though great tiranie and oppression. . . . By this time harvest was come, and instead of famine, now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed. . . . and some of ye abler sort and more industrious had to spare, and sell to others, so as any generall wante or famine hath not been amongst them since this day . . . .” (Wm. Bradford, “Of Plimoth Plantation,” original manuscript, Wright & Potter, Boston, 1901)


  

   Those who, today, favor central government planning, common ownership and redistribution of the earnings of others are advocating a system that Americans tried and rejected over 350 years ago.  Their wisdom gave birth to the great American miracle!

  

Are we as wise today?

 

You Can Do Something About This!

So true! So true. All we have is Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, and possibly Rand Paul. The bulk of the republican party is a bunch of Neville Chamberlains. To be frank with you I am a Christian. I never understood how a great nation like ours could be deceived under the Antichrist’s spell. Now I understand. The spirit of deception, post modern thinking, and liberalism is so strong, it appears nothing can break it. When 52% of the American people willingly vote for socialist amoral manchurain candidate, we were doomed!

The party is over. Jam down AMNESTY, increase the DEBT CEILING and pass yet another CR WITHOUT defunding Obamacare and you can inscribe your tombstone before the 2014 mid-terms.

New Freedom Party rising.
