Obama Debate Matrix

Obama Debate Matrix

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,105|Likes:
Throughout the general election debates, RNC Research relied on a simple matrix of facts to respond to Obama’s false charges. Since the President has been recycling the same talking points really since he first ran for the Senate in 2004, putting together the matrix was relatively straightforward. Many of the President’s charges – to steal an OFA phrase – aren’t based in reality.

FAILED TO LEAD ON THE BUDGET
 
“[P]residents Work Their Will –
Or Should Work Their Will
On The Important 
Matters Of National Business. … Obama Has Not.”
 
“It is a fact that President Obama was
handed a miserable, faltering economy and faced a recalcitrant Republican opposition. But presidents work their will
or should work their will
on the important matters of national business. There is occasional discussion in this book about Presidents Reagan andClinton, what they did or would have done. Open as both are to serious criticism, they
nonetheless largely worked their will. Obama has not.”
 
(Bob Woodward,
The Price Of Politics
, 2012, p. 379)
 
By The End Of July 2011, “It Was Increasingly Clear That No One Was Running
Washington. That Was Trouble For Everyone, But Especially For Obama.
“It was
increasingly clear that no one was running Washington. That was trouble for everyone, but especially for Obama. Though running things was a joint venture between the president and Congress, Nabors thought a president had to dominate Congress
or at least be seen asdominating Congress. If the president succumbed it could be fatal. Reagan and Clinton wereseen as presidents who had gained and largely held the upper hand with Congress. The last president to fold was George H. W. Bush, who gave in to
Democrats’ demands that incometaxes be raised in a 1990 budget deal. And Bush had been a one term president.”

The Price Of Politics
, 2012, p. 313)
Reid’s Chief Of Staff To Obama In A July 2011 Oval Office Meeting: “And It Is Really
Disheart 
ening That You, That This White House Did Not Have A Plan B.”
“Sitting thereon the Oval Office couch, Krone either would not or could not conceal his anger. ‘Wait asecond,’ the president said, interrupting someone else who was about to speak. ‘David has
 
something else. I can tell David has something else to say.’ It wasn’t hard to reach thisconclusion. Krone was tightly wound. ‘Mr. President, I am sorry—
with all due respect 
that we are in this situation that we’re in, but we got handed this football on
Friday night.
And I didn’t create this situation. The first thing that baffles me is, from my private sectorexperience, the first rule that I’ve always been taught is to have a Plan B. And it is really
disheartening that you, that this White House did not 
have a Plan B.’”
(Bob Woodward,
The Price Of Politics
, 2012, p. 317)
 
The Washington Post:
“The Final Budget Of His First Term Does Not Reflect TheLeadership On Issues Of Debt And Deficit That Mr. Obama Once Vowed.”
 
(Editorial, “Obama’sBudget Falls Short, But It Beats Many Alternatives,” 
,2/13/12)
 
The New York Times
: "What Mr. Obama's Budget Is Most Definitely Not Is ABlueprint For Dealing With The Real Long-Term Problems That Feed TheBudget Deficit..."

Los Angeles Times
: Obama “Offers No Real Solution To The United State’s Long
-
Term Fiscal Problems.”
 
“The day after the Greek Parliament approved another
round of deep spending cuts in the face of violent protests, President Obamareleased a budget proposal for the coming fiscal year that offers no real solution tothe United States' long-
term fiscal problems.”
(Editorial, “What About The U.S. Debt?”

The Best Test Of A Budget Proposal These Days Is Whether It
