Did the Obama smackdown of Paul Ryan’s budget proposal sound familiar?

If you thought you’d heard President Obama’s speech about the Paul Ryan budget proposal before, the reason is, you have. It’s not uncommon to parrot similar themes, but these days it sounds as if White House speech writers have hopelessly lost the thesaurus. As evidenced by the RNC video below, some of this speech was a verbatim repeat of presidential rebukes of House budget proposals last year. Maybe the teleprompter hasn’t yet accounted for the time change by “springing forward” from 2011 to 2012.

Alternate MSNBC headline: Environmentally-conscious president leads by example on recycling:


Past Obama speeches have come dangerously close to owing Jimmy Carter some royalty payments, so at least this time he’s repeating his own words.

If the GOP proposals are so horrible, the Dems should counter by finally proposing their own budget — one that can get at least one vote in the House, that is.
