I just watched Barack Hussein Obama's press conference about the debt ceiling situation.
What a pathetic and petulant little man-child. 15 minutes of blaming the Republicans for a problem he caused. Really. He didn't sound presidential at all. He sounded more like a 5-year-old who's been sent to his room for misbehaving.
The speech had the usual Obama blather: rich people don't pay their fair share, Reagan raised the debt limit, previous great Americans brought America together, etc. It's all stuff we've heard before, including in the last three press conferences he's held in the last 17 weeks. But at no time did he offer a plan. At no time has Obama EVER led anything. He's provided no plan, no directioning, nothing. All he does is wait for the House to come up with a plan and then he shoots it down. That's not a leader. That's a spoiled child. He wants to get his tax increases so he can spend more money. But Americans are tired of paying more taxes, and they're voicing it.
What's especially ironic (and/or telling) about his speech is that he again accused the Republicans of "kicking the can down the road". I guess nobody's pointed out to him that, by shooting down any plans from the Republicans, he's just "kicked the can down the road" on the budget problem.
The only people who would still support him after this speech are either staunch liberals or the paid-off media. Everyone else is tired of his usual "The republicans are the problem so I'm going to demand that they do something one more time" rhetoric. It's old, it's pointless, and it shows that he's not leading.
