Just when you think you’ve heard it all, you haven’t.
The new definition of “honor” when it comes to respecting the history of the United States is to bankrupt America as fast as possible so everybody’s dependent on the state? That sounds about right:
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama Wednesday argued that budget cuts that choke spending on clean energy and education would dishonor US history, previewing a 2012 campaign row with Republicans.
Obama defended his plans to invest in the economy of the future after Republican candidates pounced on dismal economic data to argue the president was consumed by European-style anti-market policies that slowed growth.
The president admitted that America was still going through tough economic times, but warned that the drive to cut the bulging US budget deficit should not come at the expense of future competitiveness.
“I want to make clear, that is not our history, that is not who we are, I don’t accept that future for the United States of America.
Yes, “living within your means,” fiscal responsibility and a nation devoid of crony capitalism is an affront to American ideals. Additionally, if we don’t go deeper into debt for union paybacks and global warming shams poorly disguised as energy policies, everybody could end up on food stamps! Wait, nevermind.
Keep in mind this is from the president who doesn’t worry about a double dip recession — to do so would no doubt dishonor the Founders.
If something isn’t done fairly quickly, in a few years we might be staring at utter ruin — but at least we’ll be able to say, “Wow, President Obama honored the hell out of this place!”
