Greater Idiocy: Obama Selfie, or GOP Budget “deal”?

 

 

 

By John W. Lillpop

After watching Barack Obama disgrace the US presidency even further with his nutty ‘Selfie’ during the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, true American patriots are owed an answer. 

Namely, how much more humiliation and embarrassment can this self-absorbed, spoiled brat dump on we the people and our blessed nation?

Is there no bottom to the Obama madness and his destructive reign of ruin? 

Have we not suffered enough, what with the colossal failure known as Obamacare and its potential to disrupt 17 percent of the national economy, the muddled and incoherent foreign policy which treats long-time allies as foes while favoring terrorist states, the dismantling of the American dream in order to placate the less capable and less diligent at the expense of the bright and successful, and the wanton destruction of American values and traditions in order to serve wrong-minded multiculturalism?

Lest we who lean to the Right get too full of ourselves, let us remember that while Obama was acting the fool in Johannesburg, leaders of the GOP were working overtime on the Hill to take the “Grand” out of the Grand Old Party by announcing a budget “deal” which scuttles, at least in part, the sequesters, the only tool which has been even remotely effective in cutting insane spending. 

As reported at the reference:

House and Senate negotiators unveiled an $85 billion agreement late Tuesday to fund federal agencies through the fall of 2015, averting another government shutdown and ending the cycle of crisis that has paralyzed Washington for much of the past three years.

In a rare display of bipartisan cooperation, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stood side by side in the Capitol with Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to announce the deal, which would cancel half of the sharp spending cuts known as the sequester for the current fiscal year.

Ryan called the agreement “a step in the right direction” that protects the Pentagon from fresh cuts set to hit in January while trimming deficits by more than $20 billion over the next decade.”

20 billion out of 17 trillion over ten years is a step in the right direction?

Baloney, Paul Ryan!
