Krauthammer: Obama’s budget lies and gimmicks

How do you know when Obama is lying? When his mouth is open.

Obama’s rhetoric on his budget is chock full of lies and gimmicks.  Charles Krauthammer calls him on it.

And for you Bush-bashers, who accuse Bush of running up the debt (even though his highest deficits occurred on the watch of Democratically-controlled Congress and were nothing compared to Obama’s deficits so far)….all of you please check out the part where Obama’s budget, at the end of this decade. leaves us in debt in an amount THREE times of the total when Obama took office.

Yet for all its gimmicks, this budget leaves the country at decade’s end saddled with publicly held debt triple what Obama inherited.

A more cynical budget is hard to imagine. This one ignores the looming debt crisis, shifts all responsibility for serious budget-cutting to the Republicans – for which Democrats are ready with a two-year, full-artillery demagogic assault – and sets Obama up perfectly for reelection in 2012.

Obama fancies his happy talk, debt-denial optimism to be Reaganesque. It’s more Louis XV. Reagan begat a quarter-century of prosperity; Louis, the deluge.

Moreover, unlike Obama, Louis had the decency to admit he was forfeiting the future. He never pretended to be winning it.

Reagan he is not…and the comparison is absolutely absurd.   Obama is leaving the hard, but absolutely necessary, cuts to entitlements (Social Security, Medicare, etc) to the Republicans.  What a coward.  Obama wishes to make Republicans do the dirty work so he can hammer them for it….never mind that Obama has stated serious cuts are necessary.  His words never match his actions….ALWAYS remember that.
