Conservative Paul Ryan Responds to Obama’s “Excessively Partisan, Dramatically Inaccurate” Budget Speech
Conservative Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) responded to Obama’s highly partisan and dramatically inaccurate speech.
Ryan spoke to reporters after Obama’s political stunt.
“Rather than building bridges he’s poisoning wells.”
Woah! What an incredible speech. Ryan was fired up.
“When the President reached out to ask us to attend his speech, we were expecting an olive branch. Instead, his speech was excessively partisan, dramatically inaccurate, and hopelessly inadequate to address our fiscal crisis. What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our commander-in-chief; we heard a political broadside from our campaigner-in-chief.
“Last year, in the absence of a serious budget, the President created a Fiscal Commission. He then ignored its recommendations and omitted any of its major proposals from his budget, and now he wants to delegate leadership to yet another commission to solve a problem he refuses to confront.
“We need leadership, not a doubling down on the politics of the past. By failing to seriously confront the most predictable economic crisis in our history, this President’s policies are committing our children to a diminished future. We are looking for bipartisan solutions, not partisan rhetoric. When the President is ready to get serious about confronting this challenge, we’ll be here.”
Honesty, was anyone really surprised that Obama would turn this important issue into a campaign speech?… Honestly?
