Ratcheting up the sarcasm, the president said: "So then you get the argument, 'well, this is not a stimulus bill, this is a spending bill.' What do you think a stimulus is?"According to John Maynard Keynes, it's government spending taxpayer dollars. According to real economists, it's cutting taxes.
Obama warned Republicans not to "come to the table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped to create this crisis." Americans, he said, "did not vote for the false theories of the past, and they didn't vote for phony arguments and petty politics."Hmm, "the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped to create this crisis," eh? You mean like government spending and regulation? Or was it 'tax cuts for big business'? I was under the impression that Americans did "vote for the false theories of the past" and "phony arguments." It's called 'the welfare state,' or 'Big Brother government.' As for "petty politics," I guess that's just what it means to dissent from our Sarcastic, Derisive, Arrogant Fool of a Leader.
