Obama Lies And Bullies Republicans On Debt Ceiling

Presidency: "I'm a pretty friendly guy," President Obama said after suggesting Republicans plan to contaminate food, crash planes and let terrorists build nuclear bombs. "Friendly"? Not the word that comes to mind.

'If congressional Republicans refuse to pay America's bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed," President Obama claimed at his much-ballyhooed "Final Press Conference of His First Term" on Tuesday.

"We might not be able to pay our troops," Obama warned. "Food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear material wouldn't get their paychecks."

Even the left doubts Obama's phony claims. As the progressive Firedoglake blog points out, Obama has a "legal requirement to send out Social Security checks, pay soldiers" and "reimburse government contractors."

"Obama is threatening to choose to break the law in the most economically and socially destructive way possible," FDL's Jon Walker charges, "a dangerously stupid way for any part of the executive branch to deal with conflicting legal instructions."Scissors-32x32.png
