Clinton White House Chief Of Staff Erskine Bowles On The Record Praising Paul Ryan’s Budget

Erskine Bowles praises Paul Ryan, budget plan (VIDEO)
By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 8/13/12.

A video of former Clinton White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles began circulating in conservative news outlets today. In the clip, the Democratic co-chair of President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform gives high praises to Paul Ryan’s budget plan.

“I’m telling you, this guy is amazing. I always thought I was OK with arithmetic. This guy can run circles around me,” Bowles tells a class of students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“He is honest, he is straightforward, he is sincere. And the budget he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, honest, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit just like we did by four trillion dollars.”

The video was shot on September 8, 2011, but was just uploaded to YouTube yesterday. What’s striking is that not only does Bowles, a former U.S. Senate candidate from North Carolina, praise Ryan’s effort, but he is also highly critical of the budget offered by President Obama. More from the video:

“The president came out with his own plan. And the president, as you remember, came out with a budget. And I don’t think anybody took that budget very seriously,” Bowles continues.

“The Senate voted against it 97 to nothing. He therefore, after a lot of pressure from folks like me, he came out with a new budget framework. And in that budget framework, he cuts the budget by four trillion dollars over twelve years. And, to be candid, this four trillion dollars cut was very heavily back-end loaded. So, that if you looked at it on a ten-year basis and compared apples to apples, it really was about a two and a half trillion dollar cut.”

The clip aired Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World With Neil Cavuto” and has been picked up on conservative blogs, including Ace of Spades, which writes, from September 2011, “I see this in an ad. Our ad.”

Gotta keep up with the Ace of Spadeses, after all.

Also gotta keep blowing up liberal demagogic lies, too.

Obama, After His 2012 Budget Was Voted Down 97-0 and His 2013 Budget Was Voted Down 414-0 BY EVERY DEMOCRAT, Has Chutzpah To Demonize GOP Budget As ‘Radical’

April 4, 2012

For the record, today, April 4, marks the 1,070th day since the Democrats have passed ANY budget whatsoever.  They have no plan, they have no strategy, they have no responsibility, they have no leadership.  All they have is dishonesty and demonization, waiting like predatory insects for the Republicans to try to show the leadership this nation needs to avoid implosion and then demagogue them with slander and lies.

Before examining what Obama had to slanderously say about the Republicans’ budget yesterday, let’s consider how Obama’s own budget fared this year:

0-414 vote: House clobbers budget proposal based on Obama’s 2013 plan
By Pete Kasperowicz – 03/28/12 09:30 PM ET

The House on Wednesday night unanimously rejected an alternative budget proposal based on President Obama’s 2013 budget plan, dispatching it in a 0-414 rout.

NOT ONE DEMOCRAT voted for Barack Hussein Obama’s budget.  NOT ONE.  That is a documented fact of history.

There is NOTHING “moderate” about Mr. 0-414.

Oh, and let’s be clear: last year the Senate – controlled by DEMOCRATS – voted against Obama’s previous budget 97-0:

President’s budget sinks, 97-0
By Alexander Bolton – 05/25/11 06:15 PM ET

The Senate voted unanimously on Wednesday to reject a $3.7 trillion budget plan that President Obama sent to Capitol Hill in February.

Ninety-seven senators voted against a motion to take it up.

So the only meaningful question is whether we should be talking about Obama’s 0-97 “support” last year or his 0-414 “endorsement” this year.

Let’s just get one thing clear, Barack Obama, who had his 2012 budget handed back to him with 0-97 support from his own Senate and his 2013 budget handed back to him with 0-414 support from Congress, is frankly un-American and pathologically socialist.

A statement from Obama when the Republican leadership approached him in January 2009 says it all:

After the last election, when the “so called Messiah” was elected, John McCain had the temerity to ask him if he was going to work with the republicans. Obama said, “I won the election, John. Elections have consequences.”  This statement was the precursor of what was to come.

Obama proceeded to ram through a massively failed $862 billion stimulus (actually $3.27 trillion, according to a CBO analysis) and a wildly unconstitutional, wildly failed and wildly unpopular ObamaCare as his two signature acts.  Obama rammed these monstrosities through larded with pork, partisan boondoggles and gimmicks of every kind with virtually ZERO Republican support.

I just want you to understand what a dishonest and frankly evil man Barack Obama is before moving forward.

That said, let’s see what this radical socialist ideologue – who has not received so much as even a SINGLE vote from his own party in two years of lies and demagoguery, has to say about Paul Ryan’s budget:

Obama: GOP Budget Is ‘A Trojan Horse’
Posted: Apr 03, 2012 10:14 AM PDT Updated: Apr 03, 2012 10:20 AM PDT

WASHINGTON (AP) – In an election-year pitch to middle-class voters, President Barack Obama is denouncing a House Republican budget plan as a “Trojan horse,” warning that it represents “an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country” that would hurt working families.
 
Obama, in a speech to newspaper executives, is sharply criticizing a $3.5 trillion budget proposal by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., which passed on a near-party-line vote last week and has been embraced by GOP presidential hopefuls. The plan has faced fierce resistance from Democrats, who say it would gut Medicare, slash taxes for the wealthy and lead to deep cuts to crucial programs such as aid to college students and highway and rail projects.
 
“It’s a Trojan horse. Disguised as deficit reduction plan, it’s really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country,” Obama said in excerpts of his speech released Tuesday. “It’s nothing but thinly veiled social Darwinism.”

Obama’s message comes as Republican Mitt Romney looks to solidify his grip on his party’s presidential nomination in primary contests Tuesday in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The White House has appeared increasingly focused on Romney, with Obama’s campaign criticizing the former Massachusetts governor by name in a new ad as the president’s team seeks to frame the election as a referendum on the economic security of middle-class voters.

Andrea Saul, a Romney campaign spokeswoman, said if Obama wants to assign blame for the country’s debt and deficits, “he should look no further than his own budget blueprints. After piling on trillions of dollars in new debt in his first three years in office, the last thing President Obama is qualified to lecture on is responsible federal spending.”

I’ve pointed out that the man who personally demonized George Bush for his debt has debt that dwarfs anything Bush ever did.  To go a little further on the subject of debt, Obama’s debt has grown FOUR TIMES FASTER than George Bush’s debt.  I’ve pointed out that the same Obama who demonized Bush for his debt ceiling extension didn’t just pass a bigger debt ceiling extension but in fact passed the three largets debt ceiling hikes in the entire history of the human race.

Obama is a man without honor, honesty or shame.

We are experiencing the worst “economic recovery” in American history.  That’s how the Wall Street Journal characterized it.  But Obama actually has the chutzpah to say that Republican free market policies have failed???

Rush Limbaugh exposed Obama’s deceitful agenda:

The audacity and the gall. This is the worst economic recovery in our nation’s history. There’s a Wall Street Journal story on this today. Worst economic recovery — and according to him, this is the only thing that works. The economics since the founding of the country don’t work. He keeps talking about trickle-down economics as something the rich peddle to keep people poor. We’ve got the sound bites coming up. But he’s running for reelection, and he’s trying to make himself sound like he’s what he’s not. He doesn’t want to sound like he’s an Alinskyite today. He doesn’t want to sound like he’s a Marxist today. He’s a good capitalist but he’s got ways to improve it, getting rid of this trickle-down stuff.

CBO Budget Director Elmendorf says that unemployment is heading back up and will be at 8.9% by the end of this year and 9.2% in 2013 thanks to Obama’s policies.  And the most accurate market predictor of 2011 says 2012 is going to end up in the crapper.  But Obama actually has the chutzpah to say that Republican free market policies have failed???

Every time Obama demonizes Bush or Bush policies, he is demonizing a man who averaged 5.3% unemployment throughout his presidency.  And what is Obma’s average that he can claim Bush failed whereas he’s succeeding???  Obama’s average unemployment rate is 9.3% (based on summing up his total monthly unemployment figures and dividing by the 37 months to this point).  And let’s not forget how dramatically the labor force has shrunk during Obama’s failed regime; that if we calculated unemployment figures using the same labor participation rate that Bush had, unemployment would be at 11.3% rather than the 8.3% it’s being measured at.  Let’s not forget that the REAL unemployment rate as calculated by Gallup is actually over NINETEEN PERCENT.

And this guy is actually lecturing us that WE’VE failed???

Barack Obama is a demagogue and the worst kind of slandering liar.  And every time he tells us that Republicans want dirtier air and dirtier water or that Republicans want children born with Down Syndrome and autism he simply continues to document what a fundamentally dishonest liar that he is.  Because he’s a man who campaigned for the presidency on the following promise (as reported by the New York Times):

WASHINGTON — At the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is a promise that he can transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.

To achieve the change the country wants, he says, “we need a leader who can finally move beyond the divisive politics of Washington and bring Democrats, independents and Republicans together to get things done.”

Obama has been THE most divisive and polarizing and partisan president in American history.  Those are documented facts.

So when Obama begins to demonize Republicans, just take a moment to examine the facts and consider the truly demonic source of that demonization.

Barack Obama is president of God damn America.  And God will continue to damn America until Obama is out of office and the American people in shame repent of having ever voted for him.

Democrats WHO HAVE NO BUDGET PLAN OF THEIR OWN Unceasingly Demonize Republicans For Bothering To Have A Plan

June 25, 2011

Keep this in mind: the Democrats DO NOT HAVE A BUDGET.  President Obama – our Disgrace-in-Chief – submitted such an absolute laugher that not even a single DEMOCRAT in A DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED SENATE could vote for it.  It isn’t a Republican talking piont to claim that President Obama has no plan and he is not leading; it is a documented FACT.  But that is only half of it, because it has now been 782 days since the Democrat-controlled Senate passed any kind of a budget.

Democrats have no ideas whatsoever.  They have no budget whatsoever.  Their entire plan consists in demonizing Republicans who are trying to lead in spite of the fact that the failure in the White House is a Democrat.

The following was true a month ago when Democrats had no plan other than to lie and demonize.  It is still true today:

Dem Strategy for 2012: Hide Our Record, Demonize the Opposition
by Bill O’Connell

The most recent trial balloon was in New York’s 26th Congressional District special election. There Democrat Kathy Hochul ran on the demagoguery that Paul Ryan’s budget plan, which her Republican opponent Jane Corwin supported, meant the end of Medicare. Hochul said:

“We had the issues on our side—did we not have the right issues on our side?” Ms. Hochul said at her victory party, as supporters chanted “Medicare! Medicare!”

We had the issues on our side? “We can balance our budget the right way and not on the backs of our seniors,” she said. Democrats said the program [Medicare] should be steadied through other measures. Okay, tell us, just what are those measures? Anyone?

Where is balancing the budget on the back of seniors in the Ryan plan? Better yet, how does the Ryan plan stack up against the Democrats plan? Oh, that’s right, the Democrats don’t have a plan. The Democrats want to continue the status quo of spending us into oblivion. They want to take the only real plan on the table, the Ryan plan, and not challenge it with ideas of their own, but try to hang it around the necks of the Republicans.

SenateDemocrats were expected to bring up the House Republicans’ 2012 budget plan for a vote this week, but not their own plan, which remains under lock and key.

The Democrats want to get the Republicans in the Senate on record as supporting the Ryan plan as did all but four Republicans in the House. They believe that by pointing to support for the Ryan plan, they are home free to retake the House while retaining the Senate, reelect President Obama and finish the job of destroying America, the America we know and the America our founders envisioned. But don’t take my word for it, listen to Harry Reid.

“There’s no need to have a Democratic budget, in my opinion,” Reid told the Los  Angeles Times last week. “It would be foolish for us to do a budget at this  stage.”

After all if you have a plan, people can look at it and evaluate it and from where the Democrats are coming from it would be suicidal to actually admit through a vote what they are trying to do.

Next to the lackluster economy and a persistently high 9 percent unemployment rate, runaway spending and debt remain among the voters’ greatest concerns. But the Democrats‘ strategy right now is not to grab the deficit by the horns and wrestle it into submission. It is to play political games with the issue and with the American people, to help the Democrats win back control of the House and rebuild their dwindling forces in the Senate. — Washington Times, 24 May 2011

The Democrats who have added $5 trillion to the debt since re-taking control of Congress in 2006, have not passed a budget and have no intention of doing so and as every household and business knows, without a budget spending will be out of control.

While the Democrats draw up their battle plans to smear, lie, and distort the issues, and terrorize seniors in the hope that they will remain ignorant and not question the accuracy of their statements, it will fall upon the Tea Party to ramp up another education effort to spread the truth. I’ll let Mr. Ryan lead off here:

Donald Trump is a loudmouth fool who started out running as a Democrat but is now threatening to run as an independent.  Trump is angry at the Republicans because they care enough about their country to lead, instead of being only concerned with pure political posturing like Trump and like the Democrats.

Please have a brain in your head.  Please understand that the DEMOCRATS REFUSED TO PASS A BUDGET FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS.  Please understand that we are spiralling completely out of control while fools and ideologues like Trump and like Democrats say that their plan is to sit back and do nothing but attack the people who try to lead and try to fix our closing-in-on-being-insurmountable-problems before it’s too late.

Donald Trump’s corporation has been bankrupt FOUR TIMES: 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009.  He is a crony capitalist without integrity or honor who has made a good life for himself by knowing how to play the system against itself and by sticking his nose up the right butthole.  He creates a corporation, runs that business into the ground, and then walks away scott free to create another one.  And then another.  And another.  And of course another.

Anyone who votes for Donald Trump regardless of what party he tries to exploit is almost as big of an A-hole as Trump is.

Democrats refused to support Barack Obama’s budget because even they understood that it was guaranteed to bankrupt America.  They also know that whatever they do will necessarily bankrupt America.  So their plan is to sit back like the fearmongering lying demagoguing slanderers that they are and hope that the American people accept enough of their lies to regain power over our lives.
