Well if there is anything easy to do these days it is to blame President Obama for absolutely everything that goes wrong . . . and some of what I consider to be the snarkiest dissidents in the foggy land of Far-Right-Ville seem to me to work their virtual asses off finding every possible detail of what goes wrong to lay on the President, the Progressives and the Democrats. So what the f**k else is new?
Now there is this report out there that somebody on Cable News Network has found a way to lay some of the blame for the current cuts in the food stamp program at the doorstep of the president. So what am I supposed to expect from some of the media? Maybe it was said on some network and maybe it wasn’t . . . I haven’t the foggiest notion about whether it was or was not. But I am hearing that some of the Righties have been saying stuff like that.
It is not all that surprising to me that the Rightie finger-pointers suddenly want to quote something they think they may have heard on a media outlet . . . something they no doubt think they can twist in their favor . . . something they probably think they can use to try to make the president look like some kind of heel . . . bad guy . . .tyrant . . . oppressor . . . or something. That is the kind of devilment I might expect from some of “Them.”
But it won’t work in the light of reality and truth and I will tell you why I think this way:
Here’s a little wake up call for some of the Rubes in Rightie Land . . .
I would like for all the Obama-Hating Right Wingers out there to try to remember this . . . if they can . . . which I doubt:
(A) The President is in the “Executive” branch of the government and he does not go around passing new bills or shit-canning old ones. He signs bills or refuses to sign bills after The House of Representatives and The Senate get through arguing about them and have come to some kind of an agreement and sent them over to the Executive Branch for the President to sign or veto.
Repeat: The President does not arbitrarily cancel out the food stamp program. He can’t do that. He cannot cut the food stamp program all by himself. It takes The Congress to agree on doing stuff like that and then the president has to either agree and sign the legislation that is designed to make it happen or he has to veto the legislation.
(B) The food stamp program was part of the Farm Bill and the Legislative Branch of Government . . . not the Executive . . . not the president . . . The Legislative branch decided to chop the food stamp program . . . It was the Obama administration that “expanded” . . . remember the word, “Expanded” . . . . . the food stamp program in the 2009 stimulus act. Does that sound like Obama has cut food stamps? Obama was responsible for an “Increase” in Food Stamps . . . not a decrease.
The Conservaturds would like for everyone to believe something different of course.
The truth of the matter as I understand it is that there is a strategy currently in The House of Representatives . . . (The Republican-Controlled House of Representatives) . . . . .to remove millions of families from the food stamp program . . . and if you want my two cents worth about it that is where the cuts are coming from . . . not from the President. – - - READ MORE HERE.
You want to know where I think the real problem lies? . . . READ THIS HERE.
If we are going to be playing the blame game let us at least try to get it right. The president is not to blame for cutting food stamps. Some of the Right-Wads might want people to believe that . . . but it just ain’t so, folks! – - – not in the humble opinion of this unshakeable and somewhat incorrigible Libtard anyways!
