And if we think it’s hard now, imagine how these guys are going to be thinking six months from now in the middle of election season when they are all up. It’s not going to get easier, it’s going to get harder. So, we might as well do it now. Pull off the band-aid. Eat our peas. Now is the time to do it. If not now, when? We keep on talking about this stuff, and we have these high-minded pronouncements about how we’ve got to get control of the deficit, how we owe it to our children and our grandchildren. Well, let’s step up. Let’s do it,” President Obama said at his press conference today.
Mr. President, where in the frak have you been the past few years?
You have greatly expanded the national debt over the life of your administration, a trillion dollars alone on your failed economic stimulus program. Unemployment has increased and you have made the American economy worse.
Now, you want the Republicans to eat their peas?
Come on, you are not serious about limiting spending and the debt, you simply want political cover for your failed economic policies. You are not fooling anyone.
