Treasury Sec. Geithner, ‘We Have No Solutions’

In what has turned out to be the most important news item NOT reported, it is this gem that bubbled up from the questioning of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.

After three years of Hope and Change, after three years of blaming the Bush administration for its $4 trillion in debt that the Dear Leader Barack Obama inherited, after 4 yeas of consistent deficit spending, and after spending programs that hike the national debt from 4 to 16 trillion dollars, our treasury secretary is finally asked whether his 10 year budget projection does anything to reduce the debt and deficit. The short answer is NO.

Here’s the way Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury put it . . .

We’re not coming before you to say we have a definitive solution to our long-term problem. What we do know is we don’t like yours.

Well, wait a minute.  What happened to compromise?  What happened to working together?  What happened to crossing the aisle?  You notice how that only goes one way?

It takes pure audacity to presume to tell the American people that the economy is turning around, which it isn’t, while having no intention, not now and not for the next ten years, to limit spending to something less than the government takes in. That is reckless and irresponsible. Well, unless you’re a Marxist.

Apparently no solution is preferrable to a Republican one. Guaranteeing that the President will have a ‘do nothing’ congress.

Where Is The Post-Racial America Obama Promised?

If it exists anywhere, the post-racial America that the Obama campaign promised us exists only in your head, not theirs. Walter E. Williams examines Obama’s Racial Politics with an article by Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Being a community organizer at heart, playing the race card and using divisive politics comes natural for Barack. His campaign gave up months ago to attract working white people. Why do you suppose that is? And Americans elected this empty suit of a President?

Maybe this time around, Americans will have had enough of his broken promises and send him to the unemployment line in November.
