‘it’s on: obama takes iron fist to gop’

CBS: President Obama may have been wearing a metaphorical velvet glove during his big deficit reduction speech Wednesday, but make no mistake about it: He took an iron fist to the Republicans.

… he set up the choice between his proposal and the one offered by the GOP. Mr. Obama said his plan to save $4 trillion over 12 years was grounded in staying true to the idea that “each one of us deserves some basic measure of security and dignity.”

And that, he said, means protecting the social safety net – Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and unemployment insurance – even while reforming the programs involved. Those programs, he said, are integral to America’s exceptionalism. “We would not be a great country without those commitments,” argued the president.

He then went on to question the Republican plan for reflecting an abandonment of what makes America great … it says “we can’t afford the America that I believe in and that I think you believe in”…

The Republican vision, he added, was “deeply pessimistic.” The president said that Republicans are positing that America can’t afford to fix its bridges, to care for seniors, to send its kids to college – that America, in the end, can’t afford to be great.

And then he really went after the GOP, targeting what he said were $1 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans contained in the Paul Ryan Republican 2012 budget proposal.

…The Republicans, he argued, want to sell out what makes America special – its commitment to its people – in order to give the wealthiest Americans a little more spending money..

…This was the President Obama that voters rallied around in the 2008 presidential campaign – a candidate willing and able to lay down a clear vision grounded in progressive ideals….

goodbye gibbs …. for now ;-)

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs with Vice President Joe Biden and his Communications Director Jay Carney in a photo from October, 2009. Gibbs is leaving the White House this month and will become an outside adviser to the administration – Carney will replace him in the role of Press Secretary.



President Obama with Ethan Gibbs, son of Robert

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, in his final week on the job, is beginning to share some of his thoughts on what it means to speak for the president of the United States.

Asked what advice he has given his successor, Vice President Biden’s communication director Jay Carney, Gibbs told reporters that he shared what his predecessors told him: “First and foremost, regardless of what you know and what you’re asked, your solemn obligation is to always tell the truth.”

Gibbs took his final official flight on Air Force One on Thursday.

I’ll love this guy forever for taking on the “Professional Left” 😉
