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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
