Steak with a side of au truth jus
Obama complained at fundraiser that Republicans ordered the steak and stuck him with the tab. My first question is: Where’s Michelle?! She should be complaining about the fat content of steak here…oh wait, it’s her fav, never mind! I hear Wagyu steak is what the Obama’s prefer. PRICEY! Wow. I can’t afford Wagyu… actually I can’t afford any steak right now. Don’t worry though, Mr. President, I’m doing just fine.
From the Washington Examiner:
President Obama subtly attacked Mitt Romney for being wealthy, suggesting that he hasn’t “spent time in the real world” and so has not received the necessary preparation to occupy the White House.
“Those of us who have spent time in the real world understand that the problem is not that the American people aren’t productive enough,” Obama said during a fundraiser today, after saying that Romney believes that America “automatically” prospers when the wealthy profit. “[Romney says] his 25 years in the private sector gives him a special understanding of how the economy works, [so] my question is why are you running with the same bad ideas that brought our economy to the brink of disaster?”
Obama was referring to Romney’s call to extend the Bush tax rates, which the president would like to raise.
The president also said that Republicans, not Democrats, caused the current budget crisis. “I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!” he said. Obama compared Republicans to a person who orders a steak dinner and martini and then, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”
The Government Accountability Office reported last fall that federal debt had increased from $8.9 trillion to $14.7 trillion between 2007 and 2011. It increase $3 trillion over the first three years of Obama’s presidency.
Obama warned that he would “have to contend with more cynicism, more foolishness, than we saw in the last campaign.”
He’s still trying to fob the lie that he’s not a big spender. Amazing. Talk about piling on though — up until 2010, the Congress was under a Democratic Party super-majority. Democrat little Congress Critters not only ordered the steak, they tried the whole menu and stuck the taxpayers with the tab.
