ED HENRY, FOX NEWS CHIEF WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: …If you basically have this Boehner plan that you say can’t get through the Senate and you've got a Reid plan that the Republicans don’t think you can get through the Senate or the House and you’re saying we want a compromise, what was the point of giving a prime-time address to the nation without an Obama plan and say neither of these other plans can work? Where's his plan?
JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: I understand the idea that there is not an Obama plan is like point…
HENRY: But there’s not one on paper.
CARNEY: …point No. 1 on the talking points issued by the Republican Party. I get it.
HENRY: No, no, no. That’s not a talking point. Show us the plan. It’s not a talking point. That’s unfair. Where’s the plan?
CARNEY: First of all, the president put forward in detail his principles at George Washington University…
HENRY: Principles. Right. That’s not a plan.
CARNEY: …quite a lot of detail. The president stood before you, I can’t remember if you were here Friday night, some of you weren’t because you cut out early, but a lot of you were (GROANS FROM THE PRESS) and he put forward in detail with numbers what he’s willing to do. He then referred from the podium to the fact that White House officials would be briefing in detail.
Has the media begun to notice the wheels coming off at the White House? First, Politico notices that Obama still hasn’t offered any solutions despite the late hour of the fiscal crisis at hand. Last night, CNN’s Gloria Borger noticed that Obama seems out of the loop on the actual proposals floating around the Beltway, too. Obama tried to pump up support for tax increases, which makes him a chorus of … one:
Obama is the president now, not a community organizer. The president should have a plan that is written down. But instead he just keeps tearing apart Congresses plans.
Obama has done nothing but obstructed Congress from fixing the spending problem in Washington and Americans know it. I can't believe that the president took nothing to the American people but hot air and divisive rhetoric. But that is all he has is talk and talk is cheap. For some reason Obama thought that he could take nothing to the people but talk and expect them to rally behind him. It turns out that the American people did call Congress, but not in support of the Obama non-plan. The American public have been calling Congress to tell them to "stop spending" their money.
Polls are coming out that show that Obama has been losing his Democratic base in droves thanks to his lack of leadership and methods. Liberals know that Obama is screwing everything up. That is why they are trying to divert attention away from the President's buffoonery.
When it comes down to it the simpletons will always follow Obama no matter what he does. They will take the hook and jump in the boat. Those same simpletons will bark when Obama and his left-wing minion tell them to bark. But the fact is most Americans aren't buying his empty words and divisive rhetoric. Once the val has been lifted from the eyes of his ex-supporters he will never get them back. We have all seen salespeople that over sell and under deliver. You may like the salesperson and might even excuse them for a while. But at some point and time they better deliver what they promised and they better have a product to sell. The fact that this buffoon of a president took nothing to the people and ask them to buy nothing in exchange for a blank check is just ridiculous. He may think the American people are that dumb or that he is that charismatic but I know the American people aren't that dumb. And I know that the American people know how to spend their money better then these shlubs in Washington.
People were pissed at Bush for all his spending. Obama has taken mindless spending to new highs and the American people are done with that. STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY! Being president isn't hitting the lottory. Washington has put us into deeper debt and Obama wants to add another $10 Trillion dollars to that debt over the next 10 years. That is just crazy. Greece is failing and the Democratic Party wants to put us on the exact same track. Unless their idea of a good outcome is the destruction of America and our way of life then they are doing a fine job of it. Call Congress and tell them to stop spending now!
