Obama To Reneg on Promises of Massive Tax Cuts, Unicorns

Uh, The Country's Broke Dummy

Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of economics or an 8-year old with an allowance would have understood that Obama made way too costly campaign promises that could never come to fruition. Now, Obama is admitting that times are going to be tough for everybody and all the free shit you thought you voted for yourself isn't coming soon. From Politico:
"George, I want to be realistic here: Not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do on the pace we had hoped," Obama said in brief excerpts released by ABC.

Obama also hinted at future tax increases and spending cuts.

"Everybody's going to have to give," Obama said. "Everybody's going to have to have some skin in the game."
To his credit, I am pleased that Obama is being straight up with the American people and that he has stopped trying to buy the public's support with ridiculous largesse. But if you thought you were getting a pony by voting for your guy, you're a ma-roon.

i don't think that anyone who voted for obama, thought that they'd/ we'd be getting a pony. he has a very tough road ahead of him, thanks to the steaming pile of crap that was left for him. i am fully aware that it's likely to get worse, before it gets better.

and yes, how refreshing it is to hear the man at the top, actually taking responsibility, and answering questions, in full sentences, no less.

I was really looking forward to those unicorns.

Damn you Messiah!!!

And cathcatz, most of those people who voted for him thought that everything would magiacally change for the better.

As for big steaming piles of crap being left for the next administration, why is it that everyone forgets that Bush inherited a recession? Or is that an inconvenient truth?

because he didn't inherit a recession! we had a SURPLUS when clinton left office. and IF the economy was faltering in the slightest, 9/11 and two wars without raising taxes or proper funding, did nothing to help it.

big steaming pile of crap, and 25% of you still eat it every day like it's chocolate mousse.

in 8 years, after obama, are you all going to say that HE DIDN'T inherit a recession??
