Obama lectures the Obamamedia

As if his rhetoric on the Ryan budget wasn’t enough, Caesar Obammus actually had the gonads to give the media a lecture on their coverage of this budget debate. Here are a few things to consider, before we get to Obama’s comments. Some stats from Americans for Prosperity.

  • Over the next ten years (2013-2022), the Ryan budget spends $5.3 trillion less than what Barack Obama proposed.
  • Obama’s budget proposes government spending at 23.4 percent of GDP in 2013, falling slowly to a still-high 22.8 percent of GDP after ten years. Ryan’s proposal starts with government spending at just 22.2 percent of GDP in 2013, and reaching 19.8 percent in 2022.
  • Obama’s budget calls for a net tax increase of nearly $2 trillion over the next ten years. Ryan’s plan cuts individual tax rates (two brackets at 10 percent and 25 percent) and corporate tax rates (top rate of 25 percent and an elimination of repatriation taxes by moving to a “territorial” system) but also by eliminating tax credits and exemptions that distort the economy and add complexity to the tax code.
  • Obama proposed policies would add $6.4 trillion to our national debt over the next ten years, with annual deficits never falling below $488 billion. Paul Ryan would slash those cumulative deficits by $3.3 trillion over ten years and puts the country on the path to completely pay of the national debt by the year 2050.


Now, is Paul Ryan’s plan perfect? Absolutely not. It doesn’t cut spending enough. It doesn’t call for the elimination of the Department of Education. It doesn’t call for severly reigning in the EPA. Ryan’s plan is still, in a sense, a big government plan … but it provides for smaller, big government. Yet Obama labels this as “radical” and then has the audacity to scold his very own ObamaMedia for not giving him more credit in this battle. He says …

“I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing that they are equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle, equivalence is presented, which reinforces people’s cynicism about Washington in general. This is not a situation where there is equivalence.”

Are you hearing this? Obama is telling the ObamaMedia that they are not understanding that this budget impasse is not his fault. Nope. What was one of Hitler’s rules: Never admit fault or wrong doing. In this case, disagreement is because the Republicans are being unreasonable, unlike Dear Ruler. He continues …

“So, as all of you are doing your reporting, I think it’s important to remember, the positions I’m taking now on the budget and a host of other issues, if we’d been having this discussion 20 years ago, or even 15 years ago, would have been considered squarely centrist positions. What’s changed is the center of the Republican Party. That’s certainly true with the budget.”

Now we get it! Obama is a reasonable man who is not saying anything different than he has said from the beginning. The Republicans, however, are the ones who have become more radical over the years. I, the great and powerful Obama, am a centrist, while the Republicans are the radical extremists. Got it?
