What Part Of This Stuff Do I Not Understand

Obama just a few weeks ago pushed for a spending bill that spends more money than all the money that has gone to fight both the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, yet now Obama is pushing for fiscal responsibility. Obama actually said "We cannot simply spend as we please and defer the consequences." Yet is that not what Obama/Pelosi/Reid did just a few weeks ago. The Obama/Reid/Pelosi spending bill is going to be paid for by borrowing money from foreign countries or inflate the dollar. So what Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have done is to spend as they please and defer the consequences. We where also told that all spending is stimulus then why cut spending at all? Do we not need to stimulate the economy? See if you can comprehend this logic, Obama wants to spend over 700 billion dollars to stimulate the economy while at the same time cut budget spending so the budget can be balanced. Does not the two work against each other?

Nope you understand it just fine. My question would be why does the mass of the country understand it? It surprises me lightening has not struck most of the politicans in washington (president included) when ever they dare to utter the word "fiscal responsibility". Becuase they are hypocritical liars.

Well I was just wondering. There is not that is fiscally responsible about government spending in the first place. Government spending takes from those that created it and gives to someone who did not.

This only proves that the 0bamunist is a pathological liar, in much the same way as Clinton is. The two do work against each other, and the fact that he is actually running this line by us is testament to the fact that he thinks Americans are stupid. We already know that those who voted for him are.

Yes, the 2 things are contradictory. 0bama is just counting on his minion followers to have short memories and to not notice. He is probably right. As to the rest of us who do notice, 0bama wrote us off a long time ago.

Well you know how Obama is going to get the extra money. He is going to tax the wealthy or those who worked hard for their money. So what does that say about fiscal responsibility? Nothing. It just says that if you worked hard, and invested well, that the money you make does not belong to you, it is for the people who have their hands out demanding welfare. And what is going to happen. pretty soon those wealthy will not be as wealthy, they will be reduced to middle class, the middle class will no longer exist and there will be just two classes, them - meaning Obama and the privileged and the rest of Americans. So much for fiscal responsibility. Think cash grab.
