Slayer, yeah and Barry the Budget Buster was whining about the drop in economic figures in Dec and Jan due to a tiny drop in Defense Spending in ANTICIPATION of the MAJOR cuts to come!

So if Defense Spending DRIVES the economy, WHY is he at the front of the line to CUT DEFENSE to fund his Ghetto Giveaways?

Welfare spending only benefits the liquor store owners!

And Barry, you told that same LIE in the third Presidential debate: “...the sequester is not something that I've proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.”

From Politifact: “Obama can’t rightly say the sequester isn’t his...We rate the statement Mostly False.”

And now you want to blame your DISASTEROUS idea, that jeopardizes military readiness, on Congress? Pathetic.

From Obama’s ridiculous little speech “In 2011, Congress passed a law saying that if both parties couldn't agree on a plan to reach our deficit goal, about a trillion dollars' worth of budget cuts would automatically go into effect this year. These sudden, harsh, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. They'd devastate priorities like education, energy and medical research. They would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. That's why Democrats, Republicans, business leaders and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in Washington as "the sequester," are a really bad idea.”

Bad idea? Barry, the sequester was YOUR idea. From Politifact: “clearly that defense sequestration was an idea that came out of Obama’s White House... the idea did originate with Obama’s team.”

mmm mmm mmm, pass the buck

Barry “Mitt” Obomney “we should do what leaders in both parties have already suggested, and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and well-connected.”

Now where did I hear that idea before?

Ok, Barry. Let’s hear that list of specific loopholes and deductions you plan to close. You criticized Romney for not specifying them. And you won the election with that tactic. Last night you put forth the SAME idea Romney did – that we should close loopholes and deductions to raise “revenue.” So let’s hear them. Which “loopholes and deductions,” Barry? Or is this just more class warfare Obabble? Yep.
