It amazes me that after all this time of the debt crisis discussion, after the media has spent hours upon hours scolding Republicans for being the “party of no,” that President Obama has remained absent from the actual discussion and has offered no plan of his own.
Yet, even as Obama’s failure to lead has become painfully obvious to anyone actually paying attention, the Old Media has given no coverage of Obama’s abject failure to lead.
To so many in the general public that have not paid close attention, they listen to the Old Media’s overage and think it is the Republicans that have offered no plan. But, as Florida Senator Marco Rubio notes in the video below, it is the GOP that has offered multiple plans, multiple bills, multiple compromises while the Democrats have continually said no, no, no.
Meanwhile, the president has disgorged bromide, after talking point from his bully pulpit while offering no real plan at all.
The facts are that it is the Democrats that have been the party of no in this debate. A feckless president and a party leadership that has come right out and said that they won’t pass anything the GOP offers and that before they even see what it is that the GOP is offering.
This debate has shown conclusively that the Old Media is an arm of the Democrat Party because they have simply failed to report the fact that it is the GOP that has offered the plans, the GOP that has compromised, and the GOP that is working for the people. The Democrats have been wholly absent from the work at hand and have offered nothing but sound bites for the news to gobble up like the Democrat handmaidens that they are.
“With No Budget In 822 Days, Dem Leaders Try To Force Last-Minute Debt Vote.”
“The President’s Plan is a Blank Sheet of Paper.”
“This has been the plan all along, by the way. The plan all along was not to take a position, to let the days count down until we got to this point with 72 hours to go, and then force a vote on something that they wanted… You want to know why people all across America get grossed out by politics? It’s by watching this kind of stuff happen.”
