Hope and Change Meet Crash and Burn

Sphere: Related Content

It's been another difficult week for The One and although I've been too busy to write about it, others haven't been.

Working backward, yesterday Obama admitted that he did indeed lie about the amount of the deficit:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration will raise its 10-year budget deficit projection to approximately $9 trillion from $7.108 trillion in a report next week, a senior administration official told Reuters on Friday.

The higher deficit figure, based on updated economic data, brings the White House budget office into line with outside estimates and gives further fuel to President Barack Obama's opponents, who say his spending plans are too expensive in light of budget shortfalls.

The White House took heat for sticking with its $7.108 trillion forecast earlier this year after the Congressional Budget Office forecast that deficits between 2010 and 2019 would total $9.1 trillion.
So the CBO numbers where correct, huh? Who would've thought that to be the case except every single conservative with a blog. I know that we have become numb to the exact amount of money a trillion is but let's put it this way, Obama was off by approximately $2,000,000,000,000.

Prior to that, Obama talked to us the way he viewed us--as children by actually using the phrase "we-weed up" on an Internet telecast. Yes, the President of the US said that forcing his already inane-sounding spokesman to defend it's use.

Finally we have new polling data that shows just how far Obama has fallen in such a short time with one poll showing him under 50% and two others hovering just above that mark. ABC News/WaPo has him at 57%, which is far above every other sample, they must have conducted the polling of registered Democrats in Massachussetts or something to get such a high number as the rest of Obamanation are about sick of his act and his single-minded goal of socializing the nation.
