Obama to Boehner:
Put Down the Gun

New York Magazine, by Jonathan Chait

Original Article

Posted By:RUReadyY3K, 11/11/2012 7:02:57 PM

President Obama´s remarks today about the so-called "fiscal cliff" set the stage for a showdown with Congress likely to last for the next few months. Obama set one line in the sand: revenue. He announced that he would compromise with Republicans, but would not give up his insistence that high-income Americans pay more taxes as part of any long-term deficit solution. Interestingly, Obama´s remarks were not predicated on the assumption that the two sides would strike a deal before January. In fact he assumed they would not, and his message was designed to be repeated through the new year.

Comments:
Let all the Bush tax cuts expire and the budget cuts take place and leave the debt limit where it is. The "fiscal cliff" would be better than faux budget cuts at some future date.

Obama wants more and more and more money. NOT interested in any cuts, and he sure doesn´t want to see any growth.

Jonathan Chait is not a serious person. He is a mindless Obamabot who worships "The One". Obama is easily the worst president in American history. It´s not close. Cue the Obamabots: IT´S BUSH´S FAULT! He comes up with an embarrassing little rant day after day. It´s just another day at the office.

Listening to a couple CBS morons on the radio this morning ,they were speculating on what would happen if the tax cuts and spending cuts went through. The conclusion they came up with is it would cause a recession this year but by 2018 we´d have 5.5% unemployment. These people are totally delusional on how the world and economics work.

Republicans need to be dems now to win elections,so I guess that means raising taxes also.Raising taxes is an obsession with Obama that he´s putting ahead of everything else.

I mean i would love to to see Buffet and Hollywood celebs pay a 65% rate but not people creating real jobs.

Obama has already said he would work with repubs but not to push him as he wasn´t budging.
That means he will work only if they do what he wants done.

OP, we shouldn´t refer to the "Bush tax cuts" any longer, those tax rates were extended by Congress and signed by 0bama in 2010.

They are the 0bama tax rates, and have been for nearly two years.

Pin the whole thing on 0bama, and the current situation is "0bama changing his tax rates!"

Drive off the cliff ! Dems are going to
get their tax increases anyway. So might as well keep the whole thing and the spending cuts that are locked in. Also everyone gets to pay their "fair" share in those tax increases, just like the media and dems like !

What in the world? Last I read Boehner was all olive branch and "let´s work together". Reining in the Republicans.

Obama says "put down the gun" as if someone´s been belligerent. So, all that nonsense about how Republicans have to kill off their SoCons is even more moronic than it first sounded. Why? Because it doesn´t matter what a Republican does, the Dems will put words in their mouths and motives to their actions and the lapdog press will dutifully report it that way.

Get us another spokesman!!! Boehner can negotiate if it makes him happy, but we need a new face, someone with a big toothy smile and a friendly demeanor with nerves of steel.

I kept screaming in the primaries that we had to have a communicator, and we got Romney who was entirely competent but not good at communicating the freedom message.

I believe in the bookroom blog suggestions to revise the image. The liberals have ditched the "liberal" word for "progressive" and we need to ditch "conservative" which sounds old for "economic freedom fighter" or something else.

Do away with IRS and let everyone pay a sales tax. That includes citizens, illegals, tourist and anyone shopping.

Extend the law or don´t extend the law, those should be the options. If Obama wants the Clinton tax rates, let him ask for them and give them to him. If he wants to extend the Bush tax rates, let him ask, then give them to him. Half of A and half of B is not an option.

The GOP can´t win on this. Obama is too slick and the media loves him. I see no way out, politically or financially, until the whole thing collapses. And even then, Bush and the Republicans will get blamed.

The federal government is headed for a crisis, a new report warns, and without reforms, a homegrown problem threatens to derail everything from foreign policy, to entitlements, to food safety. The problem is the way the government manages its more than 2 million civil servants, according to a report from the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and government consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.

The U.S. State Department was scrambling to tamp down Indian outrage over the arrest of a diplomat in New York City who says she was stripped- and cavity-searched over charges that she didn´t pay her housekeeper enough money. "We don´t want this to negatively impact our bilateral relationship (with India), and we´ll keep talking about it with them on the ground and here," said Marie Harf, deputy spokeswoman at the State Department.

Knightstown, Ind. - Knightstown police Chief Danny Baker has used pig roasts and golf tournaments to augment his department´s shrinking budget, but badly in need of $9,000 for a new squad car, he´s reprising his most shocking fundraising approach to date: getting shot by a stun gun. The jocular 63-year-old chief and another Knightstown official were planning to have a detective shoot them with a Taser at a free event Wednesday night in the middle school gym in their small eastern Indiana town. Spectators - who Baker hopes feel compelled to donate - will get a firsthand look

Non-English speakers can be jurors,
New Mexico court says

The New Mexico Supreme Court is cautioning the state´s trial courts that citizens who don´t speak English have the right to serve on juries. The court issued the admonition in a ruling that upholds an Albuquerque man´s convictions for murder and other crimes in the bludgeoning death of his girlfriend and a subsequent armed robbery and stabbing. Michael Samora's appeal argued that his convictions should be reversed because the Bernalillo County court excused a Spanish-speaking prospective juror who had trouble understanding English.

Venezuela´s government said on Wednesday it may not be possible to embalm the remains of late leader Hugo Chavez as planned because the process should have been started earlier. Chavez died last week aged 58 after a two-year battle with cancer. His body has been on display in a glass-topped coffin at a grandiose military academy in the capital Caracas, where millions of people have filed past to pay homage.

Chris Christie, not Rubio,
best bet in 2016
USA Today, by Dewayne Wickham    Original Article
Posted By: RUReadyY3K- 2/19/2013 7:31:38 PM     Post Reply
The GOP´s chances of winning the White House in 2016 are linked more closely to the political fortunes of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie than those of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Rubio is the Tea Party wunderkind who was tapped by Republicans to give the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union Address. He began his retort with a dusted off reference to his parents' emigration from Cuba to the United States. During his political ascendancy in Florida, Rubio often talked of how his mom and dad fled that Caribbean island after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959.

Fairfax, VA – The group Americans for Limited Government has urged a House subcommittee to defund the West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) after it released a study on terrorism that the organization’s president, William Wilson said is targeted against regular Americans. “Not one more dime of taxpayer money should be wasted on CTC, which is indoctrinating our servicemen and women with brazen propaganda against the American people until this report is denounced and its author terminated from government service,” Wilson wrote in a letter to members of

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
