Disgustingly Disgraceful Obama Invokes Sandy Hook Massacre to Pressure Republicans to Go Along with His Tax HikesTopics:
During his press conference yesterday, called to announce his new gun control task force, Barack Obama invoked the Newtown Sandy Hook massacre to apply pressure on congressional Republicans in the fiscal cliff standoff.
In this, perhaps the sickest and lowest moments of his very sick and very low presidency, only Barack Obama could find any reason to somehow see the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown as having anything whatsoever to do with providing a "perspective" on a spending crisis that he himself has created:
Obama ascribes all kinds of nefarious political motives to his opponents while never acknowledging that he or anyone else on his side have anything but the best intentions. Then he invokes Newtown as if it has anything to do with his own reckless and highly partisan spending habits, when the spending standoff has been going on for years, and he signed onto the deal that has brought us to the current impasse. His nod to a "self-inflicted crisis" should be delivered while he looks into a mirror -- he is calling for unbridled and uncapped spending because spending is the only thing he knows how to do. The best way to avoid such crises in the future would be to avoid spending so much that Congress has to keep raising the debt ceiling. He shows no interest in that approach, though.Related: Obama: Newtown reminds us of the importance of climate policy or something
Upon what issue does Barack Obama believe Republicans are in the right to fight his "screwed up" philosophy, if not taxation and how the government spends money, and how much power a president should have over government spending? That constitutes a far more fundamental issue worth fighting for than any of the others he invoked.
