Obama Inherited His Own Huge Deficit

I have noticed that when I post anything political, I get very few comments, if any. Understand, I am not trying to cram my political views down your throat, but I do want to let you know my views and beliefs. I am a firm believer in my country and the tenants upon which she was built. I do not believe in Barrack Husain Obama and his Socialist ways. I do believe he is a closet Muslim and is also dedicated to destroying anything that has to do with individual rights or freedom. Totally government control over ever aspect of our lives with him as the HMFIC (Head Mother Fucker In Charge.) And the American people (but fewer every day) believes in is lies and manipulation of the truth. So here is my latest post from my friend Val. Copy and send it out in your emails, too. If you care.

The Washington Post babbled again recently about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense. So once more, a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)



If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

There is no way in hell that this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference. Lets work on a Change You Can Believe In.

I learned my political discussion lesson on Facebook, just because I wanted to know where Sarah Palin has been lately with her Drill Baby Drill mantra (after all that oil started pumping out of control). Do I have to like every republican just because they are republican? I say no, I don't, but that doesn't make me a flaming liberal. I just love a clean beach and someone that can hold their own during a not so difficult question and answer session. What magazines do you read? LOL ... oh please please don't hate me because I don't care for the alaskan beauty queen. I promise never to comment again politically.

I would guess I hold almost totally opposite views.

Having an opposing view does not make me un-American.

There was a surplus in 2000 when the GOP took over. Then there was an outrageous tax cut. There was no longer a surplus.

The things that really get my blood boiling are:

1. The entertainment of news.
2. The insatiable need for gossip. Life is tough. Entertaining yourself by someone's pain is immoral.
3. Those who make a living on the pain of others.

Our President has a hard job. All those who were elected to the office over the years had a hard job. It is our duty as citizens to support our President against all threats foreign and domestic. It truly is us against them.

I refuse to be an arm of some publicity machine. I don't care who wrote the article or who made an analysis of stuff and reached a conclusion. Repeating things someone with a personal agenda posts on a website without investigating who they are and what their agenda is, is not smart.

Miss Em said...

Hi Blog Daddy,

Well you did ask for comments on Political post.

Charlene said, "It is our duty to support the President...".

Charlene and All who agree/think like she does,

IT IS ALSO OUR DUTY TO LET THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS KNOW WHEN WE OBJECT TO WHAT HE AND THEY ARE DOING.

We have been doing that and they refuse to believe that we know what is truly going on and what we want.
If you find it distasteful and objectional then, you would find the last Right in the Bill of Rights really out of line because it states {loose worded because I don't have it in front of me}...

'That if the goverment does NOT respond to the People then the People have the right to remove said goverment and replace it with something that works.'

We know that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution WORKS but right now its the people that should be representing us{who put them in those offices} and working for us{we who pay the salaries of ALL federal & state goverment employees} that are NOT working.

We must remove them and get back the control of this Country that has been steadly removed from the People of this Country.

We must return the Senate to its proper roll as representing each of the States instead of being elected to represent the People of each State. That is the job of the House of Representatives

As for supporting the "play-ground organizer" didn't do that to begin with because I had that 'gut feeling' that he could not lead.

Everyday the "play-ground organizer" is proving me right because he is still campaigning and trying to convinence me that the "play-ground organizer" and his "Commie" co-hortz know whats best for me when they know nothing about the everyday People who work/meet a payroll.

I WANT A LEADER OF MEN AND WOMEN not a "play groung organizer" who thinks that WE, the USA is the WORST Country on this Planet.

Got news for you...WE AREN'T.

We are the People & Country that people look toward when the word FREEDOM is spoken about the table.

We are not arrogant.
WE are PROUD.
We are not stingy.
WE are Charitable
We are not ashamed to say we are afraid...
but...
WE are..NOT..Cowards

As the motto of our BEST WARRIORS states..

NO BETTER FRIEND...NO WORST ENEMY.

The "play-groud organizer" and ALL his "commie" co-hortz are learning..

that,that saying is TRUE for EVERYONE, inclulding them.

Miss Em, we have been talking off line and I believe she has the right to feel as she does. That is why we have a two party system. The fact that the country is getting fed up with Obama's tactics and lack of leadership and his approval ratings are as low as the were for Bush speaks for itself. But this is the US and anyone who comes to my site can say what ever they feel as long as they aren't abusing other peple. I agree with all you said, and even a few things she said. But I am glad to see others comment and speak their feelings.

Charlene said...

Thank you Coffeepot for the kind words.

I believe Ms. Em was referring to the 10th Amendment. The Bill of Rights is a list of the first ten amendments to the Constitution. I found it at this web site: http://www.constitution.org/billofr_.htm Here it is:

[Amendment X]

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The last four words are important.

I do not believe my fellow citizens are my enemy. I believe those who exert undue influence over our elected representatives are. We the people have more in common that not. Since when did we agree for corporations to be our representatives? In fact that is what they have become.

A lie told often enough is accepted as the truth.

ScoMan said...

I don't comment on your political posts because I BARELY care about Australian politics, so you can imagine how I feel about the politics in other countries.

Coffeypot said...

ScoMan - well said, brother. I stay out of Australian or Canadian politics, too. Not my country, not my problem - unless they are affecting my country.

Miss Em said...

Charlene,

I never said that I did not want to stop you from expressing your opinion but felt that you and all the others also needed to hear and understand that the opposite applies here also.

If they, the 'play-ground organizer' and his 'commie co-horts', were actually leading this Country and her People instead of trying to cram down all of its collective throats what we have expressed that we don't won't then he would have the support that they all need and desire.

The World is watching and wondering just how long the American People will continue to follow a 'play-ground organizer and his 'commie co-hortz' as they continue to due their best to destroy the basis of our 'free enterprise' system that has made the USA the most envied Country in the World.

Look in the Declaration of Independence for the following as this is what I was refering to when I said that it was loosely stated...
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariable the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government."

First we try this at the Ballot Boxes...to which I pray that the People of this Country 'wake the Hell up'.

If that doesn't work...there are those who will do what was done those many years ago to win our freedom.

You were correct when you pointed out that it was the 10 Admendment in the Bill of Rights that covered some of the rest.

My opinions on politics are very strong especially when the "leaders" are not doing the job they were elected to their offices to do.

"Blog Daddy"...I hope that you understand that this is ONE reason as to why I rarely comment on any blog about my beliefs on politics.

Nancy said...

Hey Coffeypot, I just jumped a friend of mine's ass about this same thing, plus the housing mess, he made a smartass comment about The One inheriting all this stuff from the last adm. and I let him have it with both barrels. Same goes true w/ the housing mess we are in, that came about during dear Ol Clinton's adm. People thinking like this really piss me off highly. - Your loyal follower!!! Keep up the good work my friend!

Charlene said...

Despite the name calling, I find it amusing that the problem you are having with him is he is not a Republican? In describing the ills of the country the two terms of our former President, George W Bush is not even discussed. Is history being rewritten?

Recently I read that there is an effort to rewrite the history of 2000-2007, so perhaps that is it?

I get the feeling that Miss Em and those like her, would prefer I, and "those like me" just shut up. That's ok I'm not mad at anyone at all. I like my fellow citizens, even those who do not agree with me.

Another thing, there isn't a degree of patriotism.

Coffeypot said...

Charlene, Nancy and Miss Em, we don't like Barry because he isn't a Republican. We don't like him because he is a Socialist who is against individual freedom, and has no experience in anything. He wasn’t even in his Senate seat ¾’s of the time and didn‘t even serve a full term. He has no leadership or decision make experience and his cabinet is made up on political types with questionable character and legal dealings, and only 7% with any business experience - the lowest percentile in the history of the office.

I do not doubt your degree of conviction. I even admire it if you are speaking up for what you believe and not just spouting off DNC rhetoric. And I never question anyone’s patriotism - unless you are one of those fuckers who protest at a military funeral. None of us on either side of the house wants the war, but we do love the warrior. We need them, and they need us. My favorite saying is from George Orwell, “People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”

Now I think the subject has been spoken of by both sides quiet well. Respects to all who voiced their opinion and love y’all long time.

Now lets get on with other things. I have bunches of jokes to get out.
