Obozo treasury secretary says Obozo won't negotiate on debt, then warns *Congress* against "creating confrontations"??

Some people seem to be so determined to bluff, bully and bullshit you into denying reality that it's literally hard to believe they're serious.

On ABC’s This Week last Sunday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew threatened that the president would veto any bill that cut domestic spending.  He went on to say that his boss, Obama, would not hold negotiations of any sort on the debt ceiling.

But just a minute later he said "I certainly hope that Congress isn’t looking to create confrontations and false crises."

Wait...you just threatened a veto of any spending bill that cut domestic spending, and said the president wouldn't hold negotiations "of any sort" on the debt ceiling--and you have the gall to say you hope Congress isn't looking to "create confrontations" and "false crises"??

How the hell can anyone be such a brazen hypocrite?

Oh, wait...

Lew went on to say  "The mere fact of negotiating over the debt limit, after 2011, would introduce this notion that somehow there’s a question about whether or not we’re going to pay our bills, whether or not we’re going to protect the full faith and credit of the United States.”

Again, a total denial of reality:  Lew's statement that negotiating over the debt limit raises a question about whether or not "we're" going to "protect the full faith and credit of the U.S." is nothing more than an attempt to force Republicans to surrender on any semblance of fiscal responsibility.  Dems want the GOP to roll over so the Democrats can keep handing out billion-dollar chunks of tax money to every special-interest, including the low-information bloc. 

“Congress can’t let us default,” Lew said. “Congress has to do its work…"  But I don't recall hearing a single word about "letting us default."  This is pure intimidation and scare tactics, aimed at the not-so-bright. 

Lew is clearly a graduate of the Joseph Goebbels school of government:  Tell a lie often enough and most of the population will start to believe it.
