looks like he actually put one on the table. why would that be? why change now?

that's a far cry from 2009 and 2010, when Nancy refused to discuss so much as the framework of a budget

in 2011, the only talk was about Republicans stopping him from being successful. (like the first two years never happened)

how many people know Barry never passed a budget? Now in 2012 he puts one on the table, and wants to sell himself as a deficit cutter!! Seriously, that's the game plan.

Too fucking funny, but he knows his flock well

He's put one on the table every year, which is the law. But every year it get's denied because he refuses to cut spending and the others refuse to increase spending. So they just keep the same policies that existed during the Bush years.

Last year was the lowest spending increase in the past 50 years. Spending between 2010-2011 increased 1.3%.

Imagine if Obama were allowed to spend like Reagan or Bush!! This economy would be booming.

No excuse the first two years of his administration when he had total control of all legislative powers.

If he could push through his Health Care agenda, he could have put together a budget.

He is/was either over his head or too arrogant to negotiate. Either way (or both), there is absolutely no reason that a budget wasn't passed. His lack of leadership in fiscal responsibility is inexcusable.

With out a public option he failed on his health care agenda. His leadership is fine and he knows his budgets won't pass. It's much better to leave in Bush's policies than to vote to cut spending and destroy this country. Unfortunately Bush was given a free pass by conservatives to have solid economic policies that included large spending increases every year. Too bad you hypocrites don't give Obama the same power.

Actually if you adjust for inflation the Reagan budgets were over 1 trillion less then the current Obama budget.

He chose ideology over fiscal responsibility. He could have worked on fiscal responsibility instead of a health care policy that may soon be over turned by the highest court in the land. Spin it any way you like, not passing a budget is irresponsible, and unacceptable. Constantly blaming other people for failures is a classic example of poor leadership.

Solve the problems and quit bitching about the past. The guy was over his head before he took the oath, most reasonable people will admit that. We elected him to tackle the problems of this country. Blaming others is a sign of weakness and is not constructive in dealing with the issues at hand.

His party controlled the House and Senate his first two years in office. Now, what was the reason that they never passed a budget?

Shameless political expedience with complete disregard for the health of the Country.

So who was to blame, again?

Before you accuse anyone is being a hypocrite, you might want to look at your idol's own words with regarding to debt and spending....

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” …….. Senator Barack Obama

Jacob Lew, the president's chief of staff, said the new budget would put the country on track to achieve $4 trillion in deficit reductions over the next 10 years, achieved by raising taxes on the wealthy and trimming government spending.

Lew said the president's budget would cut spending by $2.50 for every $1 it raises in new taxes.

Why am I having difficult time understanding this logic?

Once again, Obama cannot dance around statements like this. He will be bombarded with things he said before becoming President and eat his words time after time once the real campaign begins. The guy just can't help himself, he is his own worst enemy. That was life before teleprompters. You can get ready to see videos of him saying shit like this and the lame stream media will "have" to air them against their best wishes. It is their worst nightmare.

Hey dave....it's over buddy. You're outta here and that is gonna be nice. Get your ghost ready. If u were smart you would invent him now.

You fools need new material.

WH falsely claims budget can be filibustered

byPhilip Klein Senior Editorial Writer

White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew on Sunday defended Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's decision not to hold a vote on a budget by falsely claiming it would be filibustered by Republicans.

Lew, who previously served as the director of President Obama's Office of Management and Budget, surely knows that a budget merely needs a simply majority to pass.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Candy Crowley asked Lew about Reid's unwillingness to hold a budget vote. Lew started off by offering Reid's standard defense -- that it isn't necessary to pass a non-binding budget resolution because last year's debt limit deal already set spending levels.

“He’s not saying that they shouldn’t pass a budget," Lew continued. "But we also need to be honest. You can’t pass a budget in the Senate of the United States without 60 votes and you can't get 60 votes without bipartisan support."

Yet as the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities explains, a budget resolution "requires only a majority vote to pass, and its consideration is one of the few actions that cannot be filibustered in the Senate."

UPDATE: It can't be dismissed as a one off misstatement -- here is Lew saying the same thing on NBC's "Meet the Press." This is clearly a White House talking point to portray Republicans as obstructionists that's based on a completely false premise.

^^^^^^^^^ this is how democratic leadership rolls. They fuck everything up so bad that they don't even discuss a budget, it would humiliate them.

so they make up yet another lie, the reason we didn't propose any budgets is because the super minority would filibuster such budget, something that would be political suicide and illegal

but he doesn't care about telling another lie, he knows he won't be challenged by his enablers, and what else would scumbag liars roll? it's all they know

and they know their flock well, prop him boys and girls, he's your boy. Be proud, be very proud

having not passed a budget is just one of many examples of how the least prepared man in the room is a failure in leadership

he's more like a teenage boy, worried about who's dick is bigger.

our president is an emotional and intellectual teenager, and a dishonest teenager too

The Cost of Obama

Jeffrey H. Anderson

February 14, 2012 8:05 AM

President Obama’s fourth budget has now been released, which allows for a relatively full accounting of deficit spending during his four years in office. The picture isn’t pretty, but it is revealing.

According to the White House’s own figures (see table S-1 here for 2011 to 2013, and table S-1 here for 2010), the actual or projected deficit tallies for the four years in which Obama has submitted budgets are as follows: $1.293 trillion in 2010, $1.300 trillion in 2011, $1.327 trillion in 2012, and $901 billion in 2013. In addition, Obama is responsible for the estimated $200 billion (the Congressional Budget Office’s figure) that his economic “stimulus” added to the deficit in 2009. Moreover, he shouldn’t get credit for the $149 billion in TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) repayments made in 2010 and 2011 to cover most of the $154 billion in bank loans that remained unpaid at the end of the 2009 fiscal year — loans that count against President Bush’s 2009 deficit tally.

Adding all of this up, deficit spending during Obama’s four years in the White House (based on his own figures) will be an estimated $5.170 trillion — or $5,170,000,000,000.00.

To help put that colossal sum of money into perspective, if you take our deficit spending under Obama and divide it evenly among the roughly 300 million American citizens, that works out to just over $17,000 per person — or about $70,000 for a family of four.

The previous record for most deficit spending during a presidency was set by President George W. Bush (see table 1.3 in the White House’s Historic Tables). During Bush’s 8-year administration, total deficit spending was $3.402 trillion. That’s a truly extraordinary and reckless sum. It’s also $1.768 trillion less than deficit spending in just four years under Obama. Per year, deficits under Bush averaged $425 billion. Per year, deficits under Obama (according to his own numbers) will average $1.293 trillion — or more than three times as much.

Because the gross domestic product (GDP) nearly always grows from year to year, the most favorable way to view Obama’s deficit spending is as a percentage of GDP. Surely he can’t look as bad in that light, right?

Well, prior to Obama, our annual deficit spending had only exceeded 6.0 percent of GDP during the Civil War, World War I, and World War II. Except during those huge conflicts, our deficits had never exceeded 6.0 percent of GDP in any year — not during the Great Depression, not at the height of the Cold War defense buildup, not ever. But that’s no longer the case. During Obama’s four years in the White House (and, again, using his own numbers), annual deficit spending will average 8.4 percent of GDP.

That’s nearly double the average annual level of deficit spending under any other post-War president. As the following chart shows, this has truly been a historic presidency — more profligate than any other by far:

Snoop, I can't imagine all the commercials we will be watching over the next 9 months of every contradictory thing Obama has said in the last 3 years.

-It's unpatriotic to add trillions to the debt

-I will cut the deficit in half in 3 years

-You can keep your doctor

-Obamacare will reduce costs and not increase the deficit by one penny

-No more lobbyists

-I will have the most transparent administration in history and allow 5 days of public comments before signing bills

-If I don't have the economy under control, I will be a one term President


blah, blah, blah

And after everyone of these clips, the announcer will come in and say things like.....He said it was unpatriotic to increase our debt, yet under President Obama, over $5 trillion dollars has been spent. Do we really want a President that talks with shit in his mouth? Or something comparable that will pass FCC rules.

Of course, those are just broken promises. Never mind the fact that he's fucked everything else up will the majority of his policies.

The 2013 budget offered by President Failure will never see the light of day because the Democrats don’t want to relive the 97-0 rejection the 2012 budget received.
