Obama Says “US Is Not Deadbeat Nation” …Then Blows Off Deadline for Sending Budget to Congress

Barack Obama told the press corps today, “The US is not a deadbeat nation.”

Then Obama promptly missed the deadline for sending a budget to Congress.

Frontpage Magazine reported, via Free Republic:

There are so many things wrong with that…

1. In 2006, Obama said that raising the debt limit was “a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies”.

Now failing to raise the debt limit and not pay the bills using financial assistance from foreign governments to finance his reckless fiscal policies is a sign that America can’t pay its own bills. By which he means his bills.

2. When you run up this high a debt, then you are a deadbeat. Turning the national numbers into a family income, Obama’s spending spree is the equivalent of a family with a $21,700 annual income running up $16,500 in new debt to be added to $142,710 in existing credit card debt.

If that’s not the definition of a deadbeat, I don’t know what is.

3. It’s not America’s debt. It’s America’s debt the way that it’s your debt when the bellboy runs up illegal charges on your credit card. And here the bellboy is accusing the hotel of being deadbeats unless they let him run up a lot more charges on the country’s credit card.

4.  Obama isn’t proposing that America pay the bills, but that it borrow even more money that he doesn’t intend to pay back either.

    No, the United States isn’t a ‘deadbeat nation’. It just has deadbeat leadership.

    2. When you run up this high a debt, then you are a deadbeat.

    Save that term for when the default comes, because that’s basically the universal signal that the debtor is unlikely to pay back in full the amount they’re on the hook for.

  • Obama Says “US Is Not Deadbeat Nation” — but Mark Levin says he’s a deadbeat president.

    The guy’s the biggest liar and hypocrit in the history of American politics.

  • Jim

    When you know (or think) your poop don’t stink, then you can do and say anything. Who, besides the “loyal opposition” will give a damn.

  • SeniorD

    Banock Obama knows he can say anything, do anything and spend everything and the people of this country won’t lift a finger to stop him.

    Retake or Remake our Government.

  • Lim Lynn

    Barack Hussein Obama and the rest Socialist Democrat Commie shouldn’t be spending after can’t pay the bills by raising the debt ceiling. That’s totally absurd, when you can’t pay the bill you be jail. Only Barack Hussein Obama can simply avoid jail sentence eh?

    Not a deadbeat nation? Don’t dine and dash? No ransom for the debt ceiling?

    This guy is certifiable. Make him sit in the corner with a pointy cap.
    Glad I didn’t watch his little tirade.

  • BarbaraS

    The US has not a deadbeat nation before now but obama is a deadbeat president so all bets are off. Worst president ever. Worse than Jimmy Carter. Worse than Herbert Hoover. Worse than FDR. His trying to compare himself to all our best presidents is futile. He will never reach that high. He does not have the morality, honesty, integrity and love of country that they and the majority of us have and/or had.

  • bigL

    All we got to do is, on our own, nothing formal, just stop with all the entertainment.Don’t go anywhere ,don’t buy any thing and in 6 months the phones will ring in D.C. And some guys will make a call on Obama and say “we are moving you out” .Just like the Casino boss in the Godfather II.
    And our nightmare will begin to right itself. No boycott, no leaders, but if we as a nation on our own, keep our respective nose to the grindstone as in the1880’s and don’t “do” entertaiment, just because we are busy earning a living and trying to overcome the Obama directives and diktats, well,we can make some progress.

  • lliberty

    Agree, the US is not a deadbeat nation….we’ve just got a deadbeat President…and a meathead vice president…

  • Lim Lynn

    Whether it will be a deadbeat Obamanation created by deadbeat Barack Hussein Obama. Beyonce just release a Nuclear album for Superbowl XLVII more subliminal messages inside it.

    We have the entire 52 minute press conference posted on CC…

    Wow, Obama has his nerve to be speaking about deadbeats. He has turned America into a Dependent Nation where rows of Americans on Food Stamps, Jobless, Welfare lines and then Obama care which will kill us.

    Wow, this thread has got to be a joke. Obama must have his head up where the sun don’t shine because no budget in over a thousand days and let’s talk waste, his.


    Wasteful spending, phony cuts in Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget


    Federal Spending by the Numbers 2012:

    A reality TV show in India. The Department of Agriculture’s Market Access Program spends $200 million a year to help U.S. agricultural trade associations and cooperatives advertise their products in foreign markets. In 2011, it funded a reality TV show in India that advertised U.S. cotton.
    Studying pig poop. The Environmental Protection Agency awarded a $141,450 grant under the Clean Air Act to fund a Chinese study on swine manure and a $1.2 million grant to the United Nations for clean fuel promotion.
    Amtrak snacks. Federally subsidized Amtrak lost $84.5 million on its food and beverage services in 2011 and $833.8 million over the past 10 years. It has never broken even on these services.
    Using military exercises to boost biofuels. The U.S. Navy bought 450,000 gallons of biofuels for $12 million—or almost $27 per gallon—to conduct exercises to showcase the fuel and bring it closer toward commercialization. It is the largest biofuel purchase ever made by the government.
    Conferences for government employees. In 2008 and 2009 alone, the Department of Justice spent $121 million to host or participate in 1,832 conferences.

    Waste Book 2012:

    “RoboSquirrel.” $325,000 was spent on a robotic squirrel named “RoboSquirrel.” This National Science Foundation grant was used to create a realistic-looking robotic squirrel for the purpose of studying how a rattlesnake would react to it.
    Cupcakes. In Washington, D.C., and elsewhere across the country, cupcake shops are trending. The 10 cupcake shop owners who received $2 million in Small Business Administration loan guarantees, however, can only boast so much of their entrepreneurial ingenuity, since taxpayers are backing them up.
    Food stamps for alcohol and junk food. Though they were intended to ensure hungry children received healthy meals, taxpayer-funded food stamps were instead spent on fast food at Taco Bell and Burger King; on non-nutritious foods such as candy, ice cream, and soft drinks; and on some 2,000 deceased persons in New York and Massachusetts. Food stamp recipients spent $2 billion on sugary drinks alone. Improper SNAP payments accounted for $2.5 billion in waste, including to one exotic dancer who was making $85,000 per year.[……………….]


    List is endless and think of all the Bankrupted Solyndras. And all the other pet peeves we are paying for. Who is this guy to make such ridiculous statements.

    I’d say the word is Unemployment and a Government that couldn’t fix the Crisis but just blew through our money and then blame the other guy. THANK OBAMA, FOR THE LAUGH.

  • Finncrisp

    No Budget, no Peace. If the target is the last check you write, what restrains you? Raising the debt limit without a budget is lunacy. We know that, MSM supresses that truth. Blames BOOSH.

    Losers, dangerous losers all…

  • potkas7

    While I agree with every single comment, the fact remains that in a week’s time Barack Obama will be sworn in for his second term. For four years it has been glaringly apparent that this guy is bone lazy, in over his head, and philosophically opposed to everything this nation stands for. But a majority of the American people voted to keep him in office anyway.

    The problem is not Barack Obama, or Washington D.C., or in the alignment of the stars. The problems America faces lies first and foremost within ourselves. And don’t try to blame the congressman from Ohio or San Francisco if you voted to return your own Representative to office for his umpteenth term.

  • averagemelon

    I will never, ever be convinced that Obama “won” the last election. There are too many people who voted for the fool but I am certain he did not lawfully win.

  • L.E. Liesner

    Obama is a megalomaniac and does not understand the consequences of what he says. That’s why I do not listen to whatever he says. He has said so many stupid things, it’s a wonder the MSM still considers him a smart guy. For all his failings, his knowledge of finance is the worst of all modern day presidents. But then that is to be expected, he’s never worked for a living. He has BS’ed his way through life for so long that BS is his trademark.
