Humor and Irony Abound as Obama Offers Budget Advice
The humor (if we didn’t laugh at his policies, we would surely cry) never stop with Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama. Yesterday (April 1, 2013) he announced that his administration is launching a program to help people budget more responsibly. There were two factors that caused questions about the sincerity of the announcement: timing and author.
The timing caused many to question the sincerity of the announcement: April Fool’s Day. And, the author was also a cause for questioning sincerity: Obama!
Now, one day later, the announcement has reached the irony stage as it has proven to be true. Obama has declared April to be “National Financial Capability Month, 2013.” In a proclamation released Friday, March 29, 2013, but was not published by the MSM until yesterday, Obama said:
“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices.”
“My Administration is dedicated to helping people make sound decisions in the marketplace.”
“Together, we can prepare young people to tackle financial challenges – from learning how to budget responsibly to saving for college, starting a business, or opening a retirement account.”
Yes, that is the same Obama who:
- through his economic policies, has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household
- has increased the national debt by over $6 trillion since he took office
- has not submitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2014
- has had a total of about $4.6 trillion of deficit spending for FY2010-2013
- promised, if elected, to halve the deficit by the end of his first term
Perhaps Obama should take some of his own advice. But, why should he? He has all of us taxpayers to prop him up and pay the bills his economic policies run up, so, for him, a budget isn’t necessary.
I guess it takes real chutzpah for the “Narcissist-In-Chief” to issue a budget proclamation. What is saddest is that he is serious about his proclamation! And he refuses to acknowledge (because of ignorance or because all is going to plan) what HIS budgeting is doing, and continues to do, to this country.
But that’s just my opinion
