Waiting for Obama to assume his Presidency

American Thinker
Facts are stubborn things.  The Obama-led Democrats have held the nation’s purse strings for 4 of the last 8 years.  It was the Obama-led Democrats which insisted that wasteful spinach farm subsidies and  wasteful corn fuel subsidies be included in Iraq war funding bills.  This would only make sense if we were sending Popeye to fight the terrorists.

Indeed, Bush’s final budget deficit before the Obama led-Democrats took complete control of spending in 2006 was less than 200 billion and trending downward.  In 2007, with the economy still humming along, Democrats complained of the “weak economy” under Bush.  And really, who can forget the massive unemployment rate of 4.6%?

Sen. DeMint: Obama manipulating, ‘thinks Americans are stupid’

The Hill

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) had some harsh words for President Barack Obama on Wednesday, accusing him of using the media to manipulate the American people.

Obama “thinks Americans are stupid,” DeMint said.

From his interview with Radio America:

The president is the one who put the kibosh on working together, and now he’s just trying to use the mainstream media to confuse the American people. The fact is I think he thinks Americans are stupid, and he’s going to play this out until he gets a headline in every paper that Republicans are obstructionist. The fact is, he’s the one who’s obstructing real bipartisanship.

DeMint claims that senators were close to a deal until the White House intervened.

“I thought we were moving toward a good bill until Chris Dodd went to the White House,” DeMint said.
