President Barack Obama 9/16/13:
“I cannot remember a time when one faction of one party promises economic chaos if it can’t get 100 percent of what it wants. That’s never happened before. But that’s what’s happening right now.”
Short memory there, Mr. President. How about the Obama economic “Stimulus” package?! Same ol’ Obama.
With his Pork-filled payback for his democrat friends, the entire union-socialist faction of the democrat party promised the economy would collapse unless Team Obama’s $1-Trillion “budget stimulus” pork package was approved.
Obama liked promoting economic chaos in 2009! From the Tea Party Guide to the Obama Galaxy (#227):
“Obama’s Biggest Lie Yet: The Economy Lie 3/13/9 – His Lie: “I’ve never bought into these Malthusian, woe, Chicken Little, the earth is falling. I tend to be pretty optimistic.” — This from the guy who said “economic catastrophe,” “might not ever recover,” “unable to reverse,” “create a negative spiral,” “Could become dramatically worse,” “Economic crisis could linger for years,” and on and on. We have been Leading the way Right on this story. UPDATE 4/16/9 Washington Examiner: Obama still sending mixed messages on economy!”
Oh, and smooth job there, Mr. President, taking time during the Navy Shipyard Murder Spree to criticize republicans. No class at all. As AllahPundit says at HotAir.com, this president doesn’t let major events get in the way of his agenda!
UPDATE # 1: Charles Krauthammer told Fox News the timing of Obama’s attack on republicans, during a the Navy Shipyard massacre, was in very poor taste.
UPDATE # 2: President Obama himself has insisted he will not negotiate on raising the debt ceiling. Hmmm. That seems like “one faction of one party promises economic chaos if it can’t get 100 percent of what it wants!” Even as he accuses republicans, he is doing it himself!!!
