OBAMA HOLDS PRESSER- Urges Americans to Call Congress – Still Has No Plan – Stock Market Drops 6 Points
Barack Obama held a short press conference this morning to discuss the Republican’s debt plan. He still has no plan.
Look for Obama to do backflips explaining the latest GDP number.
UPDATE: The Tatler was not impressed with TOTUS’s performance:
How weak is President Obama? He called on the American people to call their congressman, again, as he did on Monday. That’s likely to backfire again, as Americans ended up calling to demand spending cuts, not just more of the same extreme spending that has become the new normal under Obama. The fact that he can’t persuade Congress himself answers Jon Stewart’s question in the affirmative: Yep, for all intents and purposes, Barack Obama has quit as a leader.
Harry Reid also spoke in the Senate this morning, and once again insulted Tea Party patriots as “extremists.” The Democrats are clearly using this impasse not to come up with real plans to deal with the nation’s spending problem, but to assault and insult the very Americans who have stood strongest against that problem. They’re engaged in a long-ball strategy to discredit the Tea Party and divide it from the GOP, believing that is their clearest route to holding onto power next year. Reid is a disgrace for using his position and the prestige of the Senate to make such rude comments. If the Democrats had a shred of dignity left they would replace him as their leader. But we all know that won’t happen, and why: Dingy Harry is a perfect reflection of their party.
The Dow Jones dropped 6 points while he was talking.
