Announce

Wimpy

 

 

 

 

J. W. Obama and J. W. Abbas

 

The presidents position
vis--vis the fiscal cliff negotiations and the speech by Israels UN
Ambassador evoke the words of
Popeyes good friend, J. Wellington Wimpy: I will gladly pay you Tuesday for
a hamburger today.

 

Mr. Wimpy:

...is soft-spoken, very intelligent, and well
educated, but also cowardly, very lazy, overly parsimonious and utterly
gluttonous. He is also something of a scam artist and, especially in the
newspaper strip, can be notoriously underhanded at times. Hamburgers are
Wimpy's all-time favorite dish...however, he is usually too cheap to pay for
them himself.

Remind you of anyone?
Wikipedia continues (emphasis added):

A recurring joke involves Wimpy's attempts to
con other patrons of the diner into buying his meal for him. His best-known
catchphrase started in 1931 as "Cook me up a hamburger. I'll pay you Thursday."
In 1932, this then became the famous "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a
hamburger today".
This phrase is now commonly used to illustrate fiscal
irresponsibility
and still appears in modern comedies such as The Drew Carey Show and
The Office.

To say nothing of illustrating the
fiscal irresponsibility of J. W. Obama!

J. W. Obama will gladly make
meaningful cuts next year for tax hikes and stimulus money today as wonderfully
put
here by
Heritage.org:

In one of heavens sweeter ironies, President
Obama today launched the defense of his fiscal cliff proposal at a factory that
makestinker toys. The setting perfectly reflected the Administrations level of
seriousness about the budget.

 

The plan, presented to Republican leaders
yesterday, consists of $1.6 trillion in tax hikes over 10 years and unspecified
spending cuts that could total $400 billion over the same period. So
estimating liberally, the package consists of at least $4 of tax increases to
$1 of spending cutsand thats if the promised spending reductions do
materialize (which is far from certain). This is the Obama definition of a
balanced plan.

It gets better. Even before these phantom
savings come in, the President starts spending them: $25 billion to extend
Medicare physicians payments and another $30 billion for extended unemployment
insuranceboth of which are part of the fiscal cliff. He also wants $50 billion
for more economic stimulus (hows that been working out so far?) and an
unnamed amount for new mortgage refinancing relief.

The inimitable Charles Krauthammer
had
this to say about
that
:

Ronald Reagan once fell for a tax now, cut
later deal that he later deeply regretted. Dems got the tax; he never got the
cuts. Obamas audacious new gambit is not a serious proposal to solve our fiscal
problems. Its a raw partisan maneuver meant to neuter the Republicans by
getting them to cave on their signature issue as the hold-the-line party on
taxes.

And all that is said above of J. W.
Obama applies equally to J. W. Abbas, for in his speech to the UN prior to the
despicable vote on observer state status Ambassador Ron Prosor
said (emphasis
added):

This resolution violates a fundamental
binding commitment. This is a commitment that many of the states here today were
themselves witness to. It was a commitment that all outstanding issues in the
peace process would only be resolved in direct
negotiations.

This resolution sends a message that the
international community is willing to turn a blind eye to peace agreements. For
the people of Israel, it raises a simple question:
why continue to make
painful sacrifices for peace, in exchange for pieces of paper that the other
side will not honor?

J. W Abbas will gladly observe in
the future all that he has refused to observe in the past for observer state
status today.

Gimmie a
break!

The
difference between J. Wellington Wimpy and the other two is that the real Mr.
Wimpy doesnt even bother to pretend that he expects to be taken
seriously!

The many images of the real J. W.
Wimpy may be seen
here:

And delightful displays of
promise-making and caring by the real J. W. Wimpy that epitomize the words of
J. W. Obama and J. W. Abbas may be found
here and here.
