President Obama's pledge Tuesday night to push a raft of spending proposals without adding "a single dime" to the deficit appeared to make little sense to Republicans.

Hahahahahha!  Only Obama sheep believe this nonsense.
 
It'll be more like billions of dimes.
 
What happened to cutting the deficit in HALF by the end of his first term?
 
Fact Checking Obama Let me repeat – nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. It’s not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/02/12/president_obama_and_the_magic_dime.html

1.President Obama in his budget message to Congress, a year ago:
I also made sure that this plan covered the cost of the American Jobs Act—a set of bipartisan, commonsense proposals designed to put more people back to work, put more money in the pockets of the middle class, and do so without adding a dime to the deficit at a time when it was clear that global events were slowing the economic recovery and our ability to create more jobs

2.Obama in his big health care speech to Congress, September 9, 2009:
First, I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits -- either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I'm serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don't materialize. Now, part of the reason I faced a trillion-dollar deficit when I walked in the door of the White House is because too many initiatives over the last decade were not paid for -- from the Iraq war to tax breaks for the wealthy. I will not make that same mistake with health care. 

3.And from last night
Let me repeat – nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. It’s not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. He loves that dime! He also
 
I want to respect the President - because of the office - but he flat out lies - and the liberals just excuse it - if they recall it at all.
 
Oh so the only ones telling the truth is the GOP?
 
Nobody said they were, but it's clear Obama is a serial liar and only his loony base believes his nonsense.

Thank you for proving my point.
When you say "I'll reduce the deficit by half my first term etc..." and then make NO attempt to do that - but quite the opposite - and then similar promises that you don't keep and don't even show an effort to keep.... conservatives (on average) would not let their candidates get away with it. Liberals - don't care, as long as they have the power.
 
+Gregory Althouse Maybe he didn't expect a do nothing GOP house and most Presidents don't deliver on what they say during a campaign and you know that
 
The "do nothing GOP" meme is quite old and false.  
 
We have another 4 years of stagnant employment, but he wants to focus on "climate change" and mandatory pre-k.  
 
First you need to get your facts right. Obama only had a super majority for about 6-7 months. Also the dems needed a GOP member to break "Closure" to pass healthcare. She showed to be a good statemen you can disagree with the bill but not try too stop the majority party from governing
 
+Spencer Scott The GOP does a lot....but it all stalls in the obstructionist "stand and deliver" Dem Senate and veto threats from His Nibs.  
 
They should stop the majority party.  Especially when they have made just about everything worse and were the cause of the financial mess in the first place.
 
Of course it's not going to add a single dime...more like billions of dimes. lies, damned lies, and statistics.
 
Democrats have had a majority since 2006, not a coincidence that is when the economy really took a turn downward. 
 
Yes Margaret, funny when Reid and the other dem leader loons say they won't work with GOP and refuse to vote on GOP House bills, these same liberals are silent.
 
# quote Think while its still legal
 
Wine wine wine, boo hoo - he didn't have the majority... sob.

There were many other Presidents who did not have the majority, who inherited a worse economy, who turned this country around to prosperity FOR ALL. (not just the "so called" poor") (ie we in America have a different definition of poverty than the rest of the world).

THANK GOODNESS the House didn't play along with the President - or we'd be worse off! Sometimes accomplishing nothing is exactly what doing something IS. (stopping a tyrant)
 
+Gregory Althouse You guys are the ones doing the whining I am quite satisfied with Obama...we just need to get those do nothing GOP house members out of the way of change
Who has had a worst economy than Obama and didn't have a majority that didn't get obstructed as much as today''s GOP members are doing to him? Shit even Dems found a way to work with Reagan, why some still feel the need to accept the will of the people
 
You have to be insane to be satisfied with Obama, yet no surprise from low-information voters.  

And again, your brand of "change" is what is making America worse.  Keep your change.
 
Lets remember their version of "change" is more debt, more taxes, less freedom, and more redistribution.
 
Wes, you might want to actually read the article and get up to date.
 
+Spencer Scott Other than spewing your recycle garbage from Jason Mattera "Obama Zombies" book. What information have you been giving?
 
+Spencer Scott Sad thing is, Obama's follows still tend to have a better grip on reality than the GOP base do, as shown by their ability to acknowledge basic science, such as evolution and climate change.
 
Spend without debt?

DOES ANYONE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS?!?!?

To SPEND your way out of DEBT is like FUCKING your way out of AIDs. IT DOESN'T WORK!
 
Lol... The American people can take only so many lies from this man.
 
+Noel Beale lol evolution?!? climate change?!?
Those are ASSUMPTIONS based upon facts - not facts themselves. Maybe you'd better read your science text book a little closer. Note the words when it says, "may have", or "might have been".
Josh B
 
He won't add any dimes.
Just lots and lots of pennies, nickels, quarters, half dollars, washingtons, lincolns, hamiltons, jeffersons, grants, and benjamins.

Just no dimes.
 
Do you know how to tell when obamas lying????? Look and see if his are moveing
 
Obama is a liar sane as all politicains your right its same ole shit on both sides but obamas not the savior every one seems to think my opinions are from what i seen from him not fox or any one else he is a snake and thats the truth
 
This president is a pathological lier.
 
+Noel Beale thinks progressives are smarter, but they can't follow a logical line of thought, do simple math, or basic accounting.
 
Obama published a book full of lies and called it a biography.
 
Here is something else for thought his thoughts of global warming and trying to dave the earth from global warming there is only one cure for global warming and that is for us as people to make up our mind if we want to save the earth or not . If the answer us yes then throw out the cars trucks and plans power plants and go back to horses and wagons and quit wanting things to be easy and get over our lazy attitudes and get back to what truley matters or keep livei.g like we do and destory the earth our selfs it our choice but we can not have our cake and eat too we do it to ourselfs with wanting the grander lifestyle and progress yes im in the wrong century but folks its the truth we hace to get back to a life if andy griffith gun smoke and quit advertiseing corruption and drug dealers on tv we need to get back to a nation and world that cares for each other and beleives in honesty and high morrals we as people are so caught up in money and prestige and have forgotten whats really important the dallor is not the most important thing in life and difference is what makes us strong but being simple and careing for one another is so much more important this world is so messed up and its because we live in a me first world and we live to fast slow down enjoy the ride quit lying quit stealing and quit takeing advantange of others figure out whats important quit hateing each other and quit living in fast forward remember every day who you are and who matters to you clean our house before we condem each other life can be great again in the whole world if we remember we are all made different for a reason but we are all humane and god gave us this world all of us not just a few take care of ut or destory it is our choice but we have to have leaders who want to listen to us and who are honest and we all need to be honest sincere and hard working easy is not always better and we can fix this this but we have to stand together not as individuals just food for thought 
 
I don't think anyone really questions as to whether the earth's climates changes cyclically. The real debate is it man made. I say no.
 
Global warming is man made its the crap we dump in the air but its progress either we go back to living like we did in .1800s or keep liveing like we do now and just accept it as progress god said he would never destory the world again but man would destory it and we are doing it one day at a time
 
+David Doyel 

considering the North East and much of the East Coast is BURIED under SNOW right now. Global Warming is a fucking joke.

What you assholes see as warm temperatures. the rest of us see as SUMMER. It's Called SEASONS. the Earth has FOUR of them......

In Louisiana we have Two.
 
What happened with sandy and north east is god telling the yankee bastaderds to start living right
 
yankee bastaderds?

are you stoned?

1. It's BASTARDS
2. Yankee? Get your head out of the 1860s. 

it wont be North and South in the coming war. It will be Conservative Capitalist, vs Liberal Socialism.
 
And if you honestly sit here and tell me the friggen posion we are dumping in the air is not affecting the earth your as stupid as obama and his thinking we dont have a spending problem you are so blind to the truth and fit in with the morans that think the biggest problem we have is some one getting a drink during a speech
 
I have been in the north east and every where i have been people there have been the rudest out to take advantage with the stupid toll roads and high fuel. 
 
We sgould still be two seperate countrys
 
It will be people fighting for there freedom wich will be the north still thinking they control everything 
 
Keep thinking it yankees are socialist where is obama from ill the most corrupt state in the us
 
So, wasn't the deficit supposed to be cut in half by now? More empty lies from the liar in chief.
 
+David Doyel 

writing 5 separate replies, has immediately turned off everyone from what you had to say. 

as far as anyone is concerned you're just spamming at this point.
 
+Trevor Curnow An honest scientist will tell you the climate changes in cycles. This is not man made and you are assuming cause and effect with your graph.

When I was much younger scientists were saying we were headed towards a global ice age. So now they call it climate change so warmer or cooler they have covered their asses.

Keep on drinking that kool aid so Al Gore can continue making billions off this scam.
 
+Trevor Curnow 

A Lie, backed up by more lies, is still a lie.

A Fabricated story is a lie.

A Fabricated story people believe is true, is still a lie.
 
The Global Warming Hoax is Now Killing People–Al Gore lied and people died.

Al Gore has published lots of false propaganda to promote his Global Warming business.
