Poll: Public would blame
GOP more than Obama if
fiscal talks fail

The Hill [Washington DC], by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/26/2012 10:43:17 AM

A new poll finds the public views the looming “fiscal cliff” as a serious crisis for the nation and would blame Republicans more than President Obama if Washington fails to reach a deal. Forty-five percent surveyed in a new CNN/ORC poll said they would blame congressional Republicans if there is no agreement, with 34 percent pointing the finger at Obama. Two-thirds say the U.S. would experience serious problems if the combination of tax rate increases and automatic spending cuts expected in January take effect.

Morons. Most of the U.S. could care less about the Federal fiscal budget. Look whom they elected. Oh. The public by and large are also morons.

Personal responsibility and hard work will never win over free stuff given to you by other´s personal responsibility and hard work. The takers and fakers will never like us, so don´t worry about the blame and make the right decisions.

Obama and the democrat party could walk up to the libs and lift their legs and urinate on them and they would thank them by once again voting them into office when the time comes.

Anticipatory headline serves to warn GOP that the obit has already been written. These Communists are growing weary of the charade of ´democracy´. They ache for the full dictatorship of Bar-Jar, unfettered and unconstrained by the foolish traditions of a crumbling republic.

A big part of me says to give them everything they want. Let them have nothing to blame the Republicans for. Give the stupid voters exactly what they voted for. Sure, people like us will suffer too, but that was always going to be if Barry got in again.

Our republic died on 11-6-2012. It just needs to implode under the weight of it´s rotting carcass before we can try to pick up the pieces and start over again.

Of course they will blame republicans. They´re blaming Mitt Romney for Bengazhi for God´s sake. So what? Let the 47 percent own it. It´s time to slide down the ´fiscal cliff.´ The dirty secret is there will be no real cuts in government. Only cuts in what they are expecting to spend more next year. Which is more than this year. It´s called ´baseline´ cuts which aren´t really cuts at all. Merely programmed increases in spending. Meanwhile . . . . lift all those so called tax cuts and make people serfs faster! If we ease into Socialism the stupid voters among us won´t realize the decay as long as Obama phones are free. Do it suddenly and they might sober up.

Good grief. None of this is over 50%. Why does the stupid party let themselves be bullied by the media.

Call Obama´s bluff if it comes to that and we´ll all go over the cliff and survive and life will go on and everyone will have the privelege of sharing in the sacrifice.

So what? Elections have consequences and America voted in a Republican House. They did not give Obama´s (Peace Be upon Him) liberal druids full control of legislation and tax policy.

So sorry progressives. We have the House.

Republicans are going to get blamed regardless so why even bother? Here´s the real problem: to many "so called" republican voters whine and moan about how bad things are publicly and on these forms but refuse to get involved -- they expect someone else will speak for them.
I´ve done my part, contacted both of my state senators, and congressmen and let it be known I wasn´t happy with them and they could expect one less vote if they caved. If we don´t hold their feet to the fire no one will.

Obama voters will only learn the hard way. That is OK with me. I only wish the rest of us didn´t have to take the remedial course with them. It´s going to hurt - but those things that hurt instruct. Sometimes. A hard core of radicals and true believers will never learn no matter what disasters befall them, but a substantial number of Amerian idiots are capable of waking up and smelling the coffee when the going gets rough enough. Naturally they will blame Republicans as as they can - but a point will eventually be reached when this is no longer convincing to a sufficient number of voters to keep Democrats in office. We can gnash our teeth and complain about this, but it is basically the way the system works. Our impatience and fear cause us to play Chicken Little, but I think the republic will survive. We are simply dealing with an ignorant, spoiled, foolish electorate that will require some strong medicine to become healthy. Dr. Obama and his pals have cooked up just the tonic they need.

Republicans would be foolish to fall on their sword with respect to tax increases for the rich. Most of the rich live in blue counties carried by Obama. If their federal tax rates increase, they should consider relocating to States without income taxes.

25 % believe that going over the fiscal cliff would be
a " minor " problem.
7 % say going over the fiscal cliff would not cause any consequences.
" Fifty-six percent say taxes on the wealthy should be high, while 36 percent support low rates to help boost investment and job growth. "
The majority of Americans don´t care about the country.
Whether because of ignorance, disinterest , stupidity , selfishness , laziness , etc.
And that´s the biggest problem for the Republicans.

I never thought I would see Truth or Consequences become a reality TV series or that it would be on the air for the next 8 years! It will be very sad to see those who have played by the rules and done all the right things for their entire adult lives be ruined. Those of us still light enough on our financial feet and with good country neighbors, water, land and the ability to protect them will probably come out the other side ready and stronger patriots, but not all will nor can they at this stage in their lives. It is them and the generation to follow mine for which I feel worst. I can´t bring myself to call for a charge over the cliff.

We know this: McCain and Grahamnesty will make sure the talks do not fail. They will do whatever is necessary to go along with all of it. They may struggle briefly like a chicken going into the chute upside down, but when the knife is weilded, they peacefull surrender to the fuzzy warmth of the here after. Also one more thing. I have concluded that Fox News is the network of the Big Republican Establishment. What made me see the light is because guess who they have on every time some big event is making headlines. You guessed it McCain and Grahamnesty. Have they ever had on any Senator or Congressman that is straight up conservtive Tea Party when the issues are boiling over? Not hardly. They put up McCain over the weekend and he made it clear he will vote for Rice and he will go along with tax hikes. Perfect. I am not watching Fox News any more. From now on I will be watching deer and turkey hunting shows on the outdoor channels instead.

Getting blamed is a big reason why the GOP exists. As long as you;re going to get blamed anyway, you might as well do the right thing and give Obama his fiscal cliff. Call his bluff, make him jump.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin.

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.

Book: White House scrambled

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
