One day after a weekend of hanging out with the 911 beat down victim of the decade, Tiger Woods, the President hit the stage again, campaigning for a Democrat sweep in 2014. Once again, he’s applied theatrics to blast Republicans for protecting the wealthy, but he, himself, is quite comfortable with hanging out with them.
He’s was on the golf course, hanging out with the wealthy, the family was in Colorado, hanging out with the wealthy and the tab on behalf of the taxpayers is reflective of another spending spree by a White House that constantly relay the message, ‘don’t do as I do, but do as I say.’
President Obama is taking aim at Republicans ‘for refusing to raise taxes as part of a deal to avert the looming "sequester" cuts -- which his administration championed and he signed into law.’
There was no need to fire up Air Force One, gather a security team, inform the media of travel plans, travel to various parts of the country, wasting thousands of taxpayers dollars to deliver this message. That scenario has been a normal occurrence for the last four years. It’s never anything new, rather recycled rhetoric that has been costly in it’s delivery.
The White House served the purpose by way of a bigger stage. It was, for the first time, cost effective and at the least, showing some sense of fiscal responsibility by an administration that’s, on a daily basic, has proven beyond any doubt, to be irresponsible when it comes to spending other people’s money.
But now, haven’t we heard this before? "[First responders'] ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. Border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. FBI agents will be furloughed. Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go...These cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy, they will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls."
First responders are doing a horrible job on the East Coast, so that’s not a good example. Illegal immigrants are simply strolling across the border and as such, who needs border patrol? The Justice Department will definitely keep busy with smuggling weapons and the such, so that’s not a problem either. It’s all theatrics.
