Palin: Obama now a Lame Duck President

posted at 11:45 am on July 23, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

John Boehner’s (momentary) dismissal of Barack Obama as a partner in deficit-reduction talks has the effect of making him a “lame duck president,” Sarah Palin wrote last night on her SarahPAC website — and she’s pretty happy about it, too.  Palin praises the leadership of the Republican caucus for sticking to their promises, and then reminds readers about the history of this President and the deficit:

This is the same president who proposed an absurdly irresponsible budget that would increase our debt by trillions of dollars, and whose party failed to even put forward a budget in over 800 days! This is the same president who is pushing our country to the brink because of his reckless spending on things like the nearly trillion dollar “stimulus” boondoggle. This is the same president who ignored his own debt commission’s recommendations and demonized the voices of fiscal sanity who proposed responsible plans to reform our entitlement programs and rein in our dangerous debt trajectory. This is the same president who wanted to push through an increase in the debt ceiling that didn’t include any cuts in government spending! This is the same president who wants to slam Americans with tax hikes to cover his reckless spending, but has threatened to veto a bill proposing a balanced budget amendment. This is the same president who hasn’t put forward a responsible plan himself, but has rejected reasonable proposals that would tackle our debt. This is the same president who still refuses to understand that the American electorate rejected his big government agenda last November. As I said in Madison, Wisconsin, at the Tax Day Tea Party rally, “We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to pay for it.”

Now the President is outraged because the GOP House leadership called his bluff and ended discussions with him because they deemed him an obstruction to any real solution to the debt crisis.

He has been deemed a lame duck president. And he is angry now because he is being treated as such.

Palin also warns the House leadership not to “get wobbly on us now,” but says that the main problem with Obama is that he “leads from behind.”  That may not be any more clear than in the deficit/debt ceiling crisis.  Obama has been boosting the crisis mode with dire warnings about a failure to act, but to this moment has not come forward with any plan to deal with it.  Obama and the Democratic majority in the Senate have sat on their hands while Boehner and the House passed two specific plans to deal with the deficit, both of which the Senate rejected.

That’s not just “leading from behind,” it’s an abdication of responsibility.  My friend Hugh Hewitt wants to have all sides show their hands on negotiations right now, and isn’t happy about what he hears from the Republicans, either:

President Obama and Speaker Boehner have been negotiating in public for weeks, but the public has been kept in the dark.  Now both are accusing the other of unfairly presenting the facts, so it is time –long past time, in fact– for the two men to show their hands to the public.

What does the president propose to cut and by how much?  What taxes does he propose to raise or deductions curtail or end, and what revenues does he predict will materialize as a result?

What are the $800 billion in new revenues the Speaker offered up?  (This is a shocking number and unwise concession by the Speaker, and it may represent an enormous breach with the Pledge to America. The Speaker would be greatly served by putting these details out asap before anger on the right grows.)

“I’m not going to negotiate in public” is simple code for “the public won’t support what I am proposing.”  The president has bluffed, cajoled and filibustered his way through a month of closed door theatrics with the assistance of a compliant MSM, and the public is weary to the bone with the Community Organizer in Chief.  His petulance, self-regard and overbearing ego combines into an unprecedented persona that is both ludicrous and also alarming in that he may truly be as clueless about the economy as he often sounds.

The $800 billion seems to come from a comprehensive reform of the tax code that lowers rates, flattens the code, and — most importantly — broadens the tax base so that more people are paying into it.  Better enforcement is also part of the proposal, as well as an assumption of better economic performance resulting from the tax reforms proposed.  However, that information comes from leaks on the GOP side; it would be better, as Hugh says, to have these proposals made public.  Most Republicans would support higher revenues that come from these kinds of systemic reforms, probably even most Tea Party supporters as well, as long as that is how the revenues get raised.

It still underscores that all of the ideas, all of the intellectual work, and all of the energy for deficit reduction has come from the Republicans.  Democrats have simply refused to participate in any forward thinking of their own, and have since 2009, when the Democrats passed their last budget resolution.  That’s the reason that Obama is a lame-duck President, for all intents and purposes, and for that matter, Reid is thus far a lame-duck Senate Majority Leader.

I was very disappointed reading that yesterday. It implies to me that she might not be running. However, I will wait for September when I expect she’ll make the call. Perry might be ok but no-one else has laid out an unambiguously conservative policy the way Palin has.

Good points.

1) Obama told us how important it was NOT to raise the debt ceiling.

2)Then for the first 2 years of his term, he totally ignores the dangers of raising the debt ceiling. He doesn’t push for a budget. The only thing he does is push for more taxes via Obamacare.

3) Now he is saying we MUST raise the debt ceiling. Now he wants fiscal sanity. Now he’s lameduck.

The 3 don’t really mesh well.

Yep. The R’s should stand firm against any plan where raising “revenue” is a significant part or one that refuses to deal with the Dem wetdream entitlements.

Obama has the discretion to direct spending in the case of no deal. He refuses to go this way because he knows he’ll either be pissing off his base or pissing off moderates and indies. As politically calloused as this sounds, I’d make him eat every last bite of that sh*t sandwich he’s been serving up.

MeatHeadinCA on July 23, 2011 at 12:24 PM

Our lame duck President may be “leading from behind,” but the GOP “frontrunner” Willard M. Romney isn’t leading at all. The only reason he’s ever mentioned in the press these days is for his fundraising efforts or in obligatory references to his “frontrunner” status. When it comes to policy, there is no “there” there. His silence on the debt ceiling debacle only highlights that fact.

To my knowledge, Perry has said nothing about all of this, either. Bachmann’s royally and unnecessarily screwed this issue up for herself by voting against Cut-Cap-Balance. And no one’s even listening to Cain, Gingrich, Pawlenty, and all of the other also-rans.

Unlike Willard, Sarah Palin lets you know exactly where she stands on every issue and gets busy vigorously arguing for her position. She’s always spot-on, and she’s repeatedly proven her ability to wield the megaphone and drive debate.

steebo77 on July 23, 2011 at 12:24 PM

And no offense, but I don’t really care what Hugh Hewitt has to say about this or anything for that matter.

Not that anyone really cares what I have to say :)

MeatHeadinCA on July 23, 2011 at 12:21 PM

Obama ought to be forced to deal with Cut Cap and Balance, but instead we have these damn GOP Senators trying to play middleman and be “more reasonable” than the House GOP and handing him a big fat distraction despite the fact that a CNN poll has a clear super majority supporting the House bill, even among indies and Democrats.

Yet he gets to dodge that and talk about the stupid Gang of Idiots instead.

Thanks a lot.

Brian1972 on July 23, 2011 at 12:25 PM

And remember. Next time you hear your whiny lefty coworker (If you’re lucky enough to have one in this economy) using their most nasally whimper to complain about how Republicans refuse to compromise, yada yada yada … raising the debt ceiling alone is a HUGE compromise.

MeatHeadinCA on July 23, 2011 at 12:25 PM

Her use of the word, “deem” is not coincidental. It was a smack at the Dems over their “deemed to pass” crap.

Palin performs a great service to America by her comments. Rubio does as well, as do Bachmann and West. Too bad the others don’t, although Perry has taken some good shots and is likely to step that up. We need an aggressive team to take down Obama in 2012. Our America’s survival depends on it.

Iblis on July 23, 2011 at 12:29 PM

Would someone who is smarter than me please explain something?

Obummer, Dirty Harry, and all of the Dem pundits are vehemently against Cut, Cap and Balance, claiming that it’s a waste of time. Reid wouldn’t even let it go to the floor of the Senate.

Here is a brief synopsis of the Cut, Cap and Balance Bill:

103 House Republicans sent a letter to House Republican leadership calling for a solution that could resolve the current debt limit impasse and prevent the bigger, Greece-like debt crisis just over the horizon: Cut, Cap, and Balance.

1. Cut – We must make discretionary and mandatory spending reductions that would cut the deficit in half next year.

2. Cap – We need statutory, enforceable caps to align federal spending with average revenues at 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with automatic spending reductions if the caps are breached.

3. Balance – We must send to the states a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) with strong protections against federal tax increases and a Spending Limitation Amendment (SLA) that aligns spending with average revenues as described above.

With each passing day our nation’s fiscal health gets worse, leaving our children and grandchildren falling further into debt. Democrats seem to have given up, proposing even more borrowing in response to our massive debt addiction. With the problem growing larger every day, we must move quickly and unite behind a plan to cut spending and get our budget into balance.

Keep in mind that the Cut, Cap, and Balance Bill does not serve as the instrument for actual passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment, so why are the Dems balking on it? All it does, in regards to a constitutional amendment, is to require that each member of Congress indicate their support or opposition of cutting spending, capping spending as related to GDP, and passage of a BBA, nothing more and nothing less. Passage of the Cut, Cap and Balance Bill is not a Congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment.

A Balanced Budget Amendment must be passed by 2/3rds majority vote of both the House and the Senate, before it’s sent to the states where it must be ratified by thirty-eight of the fifty states (3/4ths). For a Constitutional Amendment, the President has no say-so. It is not sent to him/her for a signature.

Why are the Dems, echoed by the media, saying it’s a waste of time to vote on Cut, Cap, and Balance? Is it because the Dems don’t want to go on record opposing a balanced budget? Are they saying that nothing should ever be voted on if there’s no guarantee that it will pass? Are the media purposely keeping the public in the dark on this matter? If the Cut, Cap and Balance Bill were passed, why would that be a bad thing? If passage of the Cut,Cap and Balance Bill meant that an agreement that would prevent a default could be completed, what are the Dems afraid of?

NoNails on July 23, 2011 at 12:33 PM

Why wouldn’t my response to your usual delusion that Palin could be an effective president be predictable?

I wonder how many times the golfer in chief has shanked one into the drink thinking about his nemesis; Palin.

Call it poetic justice; retribution against those who succumb to hubris. And now the Lame Duck reference must really sting given that she played such a large part in reducing him to a common Water fowler; or is Water foul now that his caddies wear snorkel gear fetching his blunders off the Tee.

So the only comments allowed are those approved of by the delusional wing of the St Palin the Victimized congregation.

You clearly have no clue how a political blog is design to operate.

csdeven on July 23, 2011 at 12:31 PM

Hey, Knucks. Might wanna hang on to this treasured comment for later use. Sort of as a trophy for you to throw in idesign’s face.

MeatHeadinCA on July 23, 2011 at 12:34 PM

She would make a great President.

Now, go ahead and be as predictable as we all know you are.

You need it.

Brian1972 on July 23, 2011 at 12:10 PM

Why wouldn’t my response to your usual delusion that Palin could be an effective president be predictable?

Palin is a quitter and it she cannot escape it. Every questionable act on her part would be questioned as an indication that she is a quitter.

That is the fact and your denial of that doesn’t make it less true.

csdeven on July 23, 2011 at 12:30 PM

There we go. I’m delusional and in denial, but of course you are just reasonably debating on topic.

What a joke.

At least you got your fix for today, glad I could help.

STOP RESPONDING TO CSDEVEN. IT ONLY GIVES HIM MORE LOTION WHICH PROLONGS HIS PLEASURE.

portlandon on July 23, 2011 at 12:33 PM

Stop thread jacking! The topic is Palin…not csdeven!

csdeven on July 23, 2011 at 12:35 PM

Nice analysis, Mr. Morrissey.

Perhaps it is time to get the details of these negotiations out in front of the American people. ObaMao and Reid have been hiding from the public and only issuing tiresome talking points with a lot of misinformation thrown into the mix. The media are covering the tracks of these charlatans and dutifully being transcriptionists for the WH line of propaganda.

Enough already!

Don’t try and convince the sane among us that she actually wrote this FB post.

darwin-t on July 23, 2011 at 12:27 PM

I am quite sane.
I don’t care whether Mrs. Palin “wrote” it – any more than I care that Peggy Noonan wrote some of Ronald Reagans’ early Presidential stuff – it’s clearly written in Mrs. Palins’ voice, and contains this:

“I’m not going to negotiate in public” is simple code for “the public won’t support what I am proposing.” The president has bluffed, cajoled and filibustered his way through a month of closed door theatrics with the assistance of a compliant MSM, and the public is weary to the bone with the Community Organizer in Chief. His petulance, self-regard and overbearing ego combines into an unprecedented persona that is both ludicrous and also alarming in that he may truly be as clueless about the economy as he often sounds.

Both in style and substance, sounds and feels like her, and rings true.

Arguing about who wrote what is, at this point, like arguing about who loaded the shotgun.

/Standard Palin-Reagan disclaimer goes here.

Was the 800 billion in CCB? I’m not being snarky, I am curious if those “revenues” mentioned by Speaker Boehner are in that bill.

Cindy Munford on July 23, 2011 at 12:36 PM

So after complaining that the criticisms of Palin are always the same, you are complaining that a different one is voiced?

csdeven on July 23, 2011 at 12:33 PM

Whatever, darling.

That would also mean the topic is not anyone’s so-called “delusions”, otherwise known as opinions different than those you espouse, endlessly.

Stay on topic. :)

I don’t know. Anyone also know when we’ll hear from O’Bama and Boehner?

Brian1972 on July 23, 2011 at 12:35 PM

Do you not realize that MOST people do not abide quitters? There is nothing special enough about Palin to mitigate her abdication. It is excused in your mind….which is your choice….but that is not the reality for the rest of America. You believe it is personal but it is not. The people who dislike Palin would dislike ANYONE, rep or dem, male or female, who behaved in the same way she has.

csdeven on July 23, 2011 at 12:39 PM

darwin-t on July 23, 2011 at 12:31 PM

It’s annoying when Bishop does it and it’s annoying when you do it. Why? Because it is trolling.

You do know where the internet phrase “trolling” actually comes from, right? Here’s a hint, it doesn’t have anything to do with the mythical creature despite what many think based on the name given to those who do it (trolls). It stems from a fishing term (as does a lot of internet slang).

Pattosensei on July 23, 2011 at 12:40 PM

Cindy Munford on July 23, 2011 at 12:38 PM

It sure looks that way. Then again, Lourdes thought MJBrutis was a Palinista because MJ spoke up and pointed out she was crazy.
