And Obama takes on the “conclave”.
Obama’s mantra of a balanced approach apparently does not include a balanced budget any time in the future — in the near term or the far term. Isn’t it funny that the key word Obama always uses is “balanced” and yet he admits his fiscal strategy does not involve balancing the budget?
He told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he does not believe in balancing the budget “for the sake of balancing the budget”. Gee, and I always thought that was supposed to be one of the primary objectives of a budget. We’re in a brave new world.
So much for Obama’s “irresponsible and unpatriotic” complaints. I guess he believes in leaving his debt debacle to someone else, anyone.
“Fair and balanced” to Obama means unfair and unbalanced. Now that he tells us balancing the budget is not one of his goals, get ready for the other overused word “investment” to explain away his big-spending plans. All those votes get expensive.
This liar in chief is just a walking talking contradicting king of hypocrite hill (mountain). Besides, he doesn’t even plan to put out his budget until next month. And he blames that on the “fiscal cliff”, sequestration, and of course Republicans.
But even better than his unfair and unbalanced approach, Obama does a photo-op going to meet Republicans in the Capitol and look how it gets reported. On the same day the Catholic Church is choosing its new Pope, nothing stops Obama’s papacy from stealing center stage. Just look at this ABC report, complete with photo symbolism and suggestive title.

Still, there is likely more hope for a new Pope today, than positive prospects for a bipartisan debt deal.
Say what, a new Pope is relevant to fiscal stalemates? Maybe they planned black and white smoke for effects too. Some red hats for congress would add to the visuals. Maybe they could have arranged for someone to bow and kiss his ring.
Let me see if I can further their narrative in Rome. Maybe the new Pope ought to immediately start blaming the prior Pope and then take pot shots at the cardinals rather than concentrate on his duties. Yea, that sounds like a plausible comparison. Then he could take to the road and tell the “faithful” to call up the cardinals and get after them. Am I taking it a bit far? I’m just fed up with their narrative.
What’s next, how about a big shout out to the church of Climatology? (that’s coming)
