Obama Fox News Interview

Obama said today that he opposes deficit spending, opposes government funding of abortion, doesn’t want the government meddling in GM’s decisions, and jobs “saved or created” can’t accurately be measured.

President Obama sat down with the Fox News Channel Senior White House correspondent Major Garrett today in China.  I’ve included some of my reactions to what the President said below.  President Obama has been block quoted with my reactions following.

If we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point people could lose confidence in the US economy in a way that could actually lead to a double dip recession.

Really.  Really.  Then why have you done nothing but increase government spending while you have been in office?  According to the Congressional budget office your spending projections will create $9.3 Trillion in new deficits over the next ten years!  “By 2019, the CBO said, a whopping 82 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) will go to pay down the national debt.”  Stop the spending! http://www.cnsnews.com/news/ar…

I think this is an inexact science.  We’re talking about a multi-Trillion dollar economy.

President Obama said this concerning the reporting of jobs “created or saved.”  Here I agree with you Mr. President.  Measuring how many “saved jobs” occur in a spending program is like measuring how many smurf berries are needed to make a pie.  It’s fictional nonsense.  However, you are attempting to sell us that pie with laughable precision.  According to you the stimulus has “created or saved” 640,329 jobs.  Not 640,328 or 640,330. http://www.recovery.gov/Pages/…


What I have said is that we are not going to meddle in GM’s decisions…

We have specifically said that we’re not in the business of running a car company.

Where should I begin?  Here are two quick headlines:

GM, Chrysler Get Ultimatum From Obama on Turnaround http://www.cnbc.com/id/29956752

GM CEO resigns at Obama’s behest http://www.politico.com/news/s…

I believe in the basic idea that federal dollars shouldn’t pay for abortions.

One of the first things you did as President (on January, 24 2009) was reverse this!  “President Obama struck down a rule Friday that prohibits U.S. money from funding international family-planning clinics that promote abortion or provide counseling or referrals about abortion services.” http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITI…

Do you believe the words that are coming out of your mouth?  I’m betting no.
