I know our President is supposed to be the smartest man to ever inhabit the Oval Office in the history of history, but can we get a quick fact-check here?
My hope is that over the next several days, the congressional leadership on the super committee go ahead and bite the bullet and do what needs to be done — because the math won’t change. There’s no magic formula. There are no magic beans that you can toss on the ground and suddenly a bunch of money grows on trees. We got to just go ahead and do the responsible thing. And I’m prepared to sign legislation that is balanced, that solves this problem.
One other thing that I want to say about this: When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia — the kinds of fundamental reforms and changes both on the revenue side and the public pension side that other countries are having to make are so much more significant than what we need to do in order to get our books in order.
This doesn’t require radical changes to America or its way of life.
Actually, it kind of does, since Barack Obama gave this speech in Hawaii and I’m fairly sure that he hasn’t introduced a radical plan to reduce our debt by selling it off to China.
But hey, let’s not focus on this fumble-tongued President with the intellectual curiosity of a head of cauliflower and the college records we can’t get unless we hire Danny Ocean and his buddies. I hear that Rick Perry forgot another bullet point and Herman Cain couldn’t name the leader of Whogivesaflyingstan. I mean, the MSM and the rest of the progressive mob will be all over our peoples’ gaffes like Nancy Pelosi on an illicit stock tip, but why should that stop us from breaking out the knives and getting a few good shots in at every possible opportunity?
On the other hand, it could be an interesting to see just how unhinged the left gets when we start hurling Barack Obama’s words back at him. I’m willing to bet that he doesn’t like when people make fun of his shortcomings one little bit and he’ll make even more mistakes the more he has to step out from behind his
security blanket teleprompter. The MSM still won’t jump on his gaffes, and they’ll try even harder to trip up the GOP candidates, but every time they crank out another “Can you believe what this stupid Republican said?” report, we’ll have a Barack Obama Fumble-Tongue Special to fire right back at them.
Keep that up for another year and we win. Then Hawaii can proudly take its place among the United States of America again.
