… Raising Taxes is not a Profile in Courage …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 6th,2014

.. it is politically stupid …

.. former President Bush [41] got what is called a ” Profiles in Courage ” award from the Kennedy School for Government at Harvard . It is long since the incident that Bush 41 did that earned him this thing …

.. I admire Papa Bush greatly , but not for this . The DemoCraps snookered and suckered him , and went back on their word . In the DemoCraps case , I would call it a ” Profile in Cowardice . ” They deserve that tag ….

.. It was not the only problem , but eventually , it cost him re – election . It was no profile in courage , it was political suicide …

White House press secretary Jay Carney reiterated President Obama’s desire to pass gun control legislation, though he sounded cautious about appearing to use the Navy Yard shooting to political advantage.

“[I]t is far too early to say anything about who did this and the broader meaning of it,” Carney told reporters, per a live transcription. “When it comes to common sense legislation to reduce gun violence, the president has been very clear,” Carney added, recalling Obama’s frustration with congressional leaders who voted down a gun proposal in March.

The comments came under repeated questioning from American Urban Radio’s April Ryan.

“That was a shame and we will continue to work to take action to improve gun safety, to reduce gun violence in this country through executive action and, hopefully, Congress will work to reduce gun violence as well,” he said.

Ryan pressed him about gun control in a follow-up. “Jay, you say it’s far too early, and I understand that, but we do know for a fact that these were shooting deaths, and going down that seven: Fort Hood, Binghamton, Tuscon, Aurora, Oak Creek, Newtown, and the Navy Yard now.”

“And countless other deaths, as you know April, countless other deaths, and this is why we should take action to reduce gun violence, we should take common sense action supported by Americans from every part of the country,” Carney replied.

… Sick [POTUS hyper – partisan cheap shot] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 16th,2013

.. you think that Barack Obama would land some sense of decency , dignity , or reason for dealing with a crisis situation . He has had 5 years (almost) in office to figure it out . Well , guess what ??

.. You would guess wrong .

.. POTUS pulled a real boner out of his hat , today . One would think that he would pull his partisan punches , especially with the Navy Yard shooting just a short distance away . Well , He did not …

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Although ultimately our success will depend on all the innovation and hard work of our private sector, all the grit and resilience of the American people, government is going to have a critical role in making sure we have an education system that prepares our children and our workers for a global economy. The budget Congress passes will determine whether we can hire more workers to upgrade our transportation and communications networks or fund the kinds of research and development that have always kept America on the cutting edge. So what happens here in Washington makes a difference. What happens up on Capitol Hill will help determine not only the pace of our growth, but also the quality of jobs, the quality of opportunity, for this generation and future generations.

The problem is, at the moment, Republicans in Congress don’t seem to be focused on how to grow the economy and build the middle class. I say ‘at the moment’ because I am still hoping that a light bulb goes off here. So far, their budget ideas revolve primarily around even deeper cuts to education. Even deeper cuts that would gut the scientific research and development. Even deeper cuts to America’s infrastructure investment. Our roads, bridges, schools, and energy grid. These are not the policies that would grow the economy faster. They are not the policies that would help grow the middle class. In fact, they do the opposite.
