WH Says Obama’s Budget Will Be Delayed Again, Use Sequester As An Excuse



Remember the year Obama rolled out the photo ops of his budget and people complained about the money wasted it took to print; what even democrats rejected?



quote:

President Obama’s budget will probably be released in March, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday, but has been delayed in part by “manufactured crises” including sequestration.

“The series of manufactured crises around budget issues, certainly has resulted at least in part in those experts in the administration who work on those issues having to spend a lot of time dealing with those crises rather than on that,” Carney said during his daily briefing. “But that’s part of the job and they’re working on the budget.”

By law, presidents are required to release their budgets on the first Monday in February, but it was clear before then that Obama’s budget would be late. There were expectations from Capitol Hill that the budget would arrive by the end of the month, but with Thursday ending the month, it’s clear that won’t happen.

Obama has delivered his budget on time just once, in 2010.

By comparison to past presidents...how does Obama's budget release and approval compare to W and Clinton? I honestly don't know but would like to...

Hope the author isn't too close to Lanny Davis, Woodward, or Fournier, could be a drone strike in their future.

re: WH Says Obama’s Budget Will Be Delayed Again, Use Sequester As An Excuse


quote:


In just one term, President Obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other President.
In the 90 years covering FY1923 through FY 2013, President Obama is the only President to miss the deadline two years in a row. He is the only President who has missed the deadline in three of the four years of a term. And, he holds the record for the longest delay (at 98 days).

All Presidents from Harding through Reagan’s first term met the statutory budget submission deadline in every year. In five of these years, a change in the law was requested and passed to extend the deadline, and the President always met it.

Since the budget process moved the date of submission to the first Monday in February, the incoming President’s first budget submission has been delayed for practical reasons (the President’s inauguration is less than three weeks before the budget submission’s deadline). Yet President Obama’s first budget in his first year set a new record with a 98-day delay for his FY2010 budget.

Since the statutory deadline was extended to the first Monday in February, with the exception of the first budget for a new President, this deadline has only been missed three times: Clinton FY1998; Obama FY2012; and Obama FY 2013.

Not sure why there's the need for the delay, it can get 0 votes in Congress tomorrow or it can get 0 votes in Congress in two months.

Obama truly is setting the new floor for how bad a president can be in many respects, especially relative to spending, civil rights and transparency.

There are no excuses for Obama. When he had a supermajority with his democrats they wouldn't pass his stuff. I do recall reading one of his proposals they would not vote on: was nationalizing banks into ONE he of course controls. With Obama's re-election I am surprised he is not trying his radical spending budget with ONE bank again. Because he feels he has a mandate? I think a radical spending budget proposal is coming but if he released it now he would look like a liar with his spin on the sequester stuff.

Anyway...

Here is a breakdown:

Obama can't produce a budget proposal, but he has the wherwithall to produce reams of propaganda showing what each state will loseif sequester continues in the prsent form.

His people can produce this kind of propaganda at a moment's notice, but they can't do the business of governing.

By his own words: He is LAZY. Did you expect him to do work or something? Talking should be enough.
Or maybe he just hasn't talk enough, that must be it.

Obama does not want the appearance of governing...he wants the appearance of being an advocate.

It is really quite smart...he plays to his strengths of being an organizer. You cannot be an organizer in the public spectrum without a bad guy. Since he is the boss in fact, he knows he must appear to abdicate that role.

How does this work in reality? Well, we know he controls the executive branch which means he controls all the government agencies and their policies...and we know that he by default controls the Senate as well. The Rs only control one branch of congress, yet by listening to Obama, you would think he is absolutely powerless...it is faux-abdication.

It is smart in that he plays to his strength while at the same time never having to take responsibility for the bad that happens, while at the same time being able to take credit for anything good that happens (Benghazi versus Operation Neptune's Spear in a great example).

The linchpin for this to work, of course, is a complicit media. The main media never points these rather obvious observations out to the low information society that we live in currently.

Obama is lying. Again. The sequester has nothing to do with his request. He can ask for anything he wants.

He proposed the sequestration deal, approved it. So his manufactured crisis is preventing his budget?

You can't make this shite up. It's truly frightening that this dip shite is running the country, and the media is literally letting him get away with whatever he wants.

He PROPOSED AND APPROVED the sequestration deal. Now he is saying it is thoughtless and irresponsible. He is basically insulting his own policies and blaming someone else for his incompetency.

He said he would veto any bill that didn't have the sequestration in it.

Edit:

quote:

President Obama on Monday evening threatened to veto any legislation that would void the $600 billion in national defense cuts that would kick in if lawmakers fail to cut a debt-reduction deal.

You just cannot make it up.
