This Unserious White House
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/30/2012 5:43:49 AM

The White House this week finally explained just how serious it is about averting a fiscal cliff that could throw the country back into a recession. The answer: not serious at all. The markets and the media in recent days have been operating on an optimistic belief that the administration simply will not let the country fall off the fiscal cliff. They´d best rethink. On Thursday, the president dispatched Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and White House Director of Legislative Affairs Rob Nabors to Congress to finally outline the White House´s offer to avert the coming tax hikes and sequester.

To a Leftist, what could the USA possibly deserve more than falling off a cliff? Being attacked by al-Qaeda?

Given the history of the Left, it is absolutely beyond me how anyone could possibly believe Our Leftist Savior wants to help the nation, not hurt it. Helping free people is not what Leftists do. Ever.

Ever.

This theory making the rounds that Obama will cave because he doesn´t want a 2nd term recession nad he care sbaout his legacy is pure fantasy. Obama cares abut neither. he will still have his billion dollar a year expense money while people in the country fall further into despair.Military contractors getting creamed would make Obama very happy as well as a tax increase for all.His offer of working on tax reform next year is a pure lie to get what he wants from republicans now. Obama is holding the country hostage to satisfy the members of his filthy tin cup base.

Is anyone really surprised by Obama´s actions? No, not the people who ready this site. The rest still believe that Obama is too smart to let the country fail - delusional and mislead. Someone pass the Obamaphone please.

Ummmm, I think Obama IS serious. Serious about revenge, serious about expanding government even more. Serious about destroying race relations.

FTA "Oh, the White House also wants Congress to give Mr. Obama the authority to increase the debt limit, whenever he wants, as much as he wants.". Obama is the Lord High Ruler of us all.

agree Spidy but after he takes us down he will isolate the problem and keep blaming the Republican congress in the hope to replace them so he has a one party system. Then the country can be run like Detroit, Newark, and the rest.
He knows the press will jump in and help with the blame.

OMG. When will the Repugs realize this is about who gets the blame for the upcoming disaster. Raise the taxes on the freakin "rich" and let the party begin.

Take a moral stand on spending, not defending the small tax rate increase for the rich.

Repugs are playing checkers while the Dimms are playing chess.

I make no excuses for the insipid president, but if you are someone who has gotten everything you wanted without working for it your entire life, why would anyone think you know the first thing about compromise?

In addition to dealing with a hard-core leftists, they are dealing with a sociopath whose pathology was imbued from birth.

This little drama is playing out exactly the way the dictator planned. He will bring this country to its knees because it is who he is at his core. He is getting everything he has ever dreamed of by the destruction of this country financially, the decimation of the military, and the rising masses indebted to his handouts who worship him. We hear a lot about the fiscal cliff but what has set us upon this path was going over the moral cliff years ago.

Let all the extensions end. Let the full Clinton rates go into effect. Everybody gets taxed which will generate the 3 times the revenue they hoped they might generate from the rich. Then let the Sequestration begin. Dems will get just exactly what the wanted, more revenue AND real but smaller cuts. Then tell them since they got all this new revenue, the debt limit won´t need to be very large.

I hate to say this, but John Boehner needs to realize that he does not have a negotiating partner in either BHO nor Harry Reid. Ergo, Mr. Boehner needs to lead by proposing and passing a spending reduction bill that will defund Federal Agencies in a wholesale manner. He needs t mount a public relations assault that would make Charles Schumer turn green with envy. And every time any Mediaite complains that the issue is not being addressed every Republican needs to remind them immediately that revenue and appropriations are required to originate in the House and that the House has done its job.

Finally, if a democrat House Member wants to propose the plan (ha!) of BHO, let them. Then vote it down on a voice vote. Let the Democrats in the House go on record as being in favor of raising taxes during a recession.

The republicans better remember President George H. Bush´s set/up by the demorats. Remember -- "read my lips" and then when the deal was struck he got blown away by "taxes".

It´s the demorats favorite game -- LYING.....

I agree, #2, as well. Too many of our nation´s Super-Smart People Better´n Us still think he´s a regular, normal Democrat, that it´s just ´their turn´ and expect he will behave as all Democrats before him: Moderate his positions back toward center and do what´s best for the country as a whole.

Except they neglect to acknowledge that he is NOT an ordinary Democrat, that he has devious ulterior motives, and wants high achieving Americans (i.e., anyone with a job) to pay for the world´s ills.

If a committed extreme leftist actually intended to destroy this nation, and ´won´ a second election with those same policies, would he be doing any differently?

More evidence of un-seriousness:

Obama´s negotiators do not honor the most basic traditional rules of negotiation, according to Dana Perino yesterday.

Perino said that Obama´s people had promised confidentiality of the details of the Republicans´ offers, during negotiation conducted by phone conference.

They then promptly broke this promise and revealed details to the lapdog media for political advantage.

The republicans can´t change Obama´s plans and they can´t go along to get along either. The only thing they can do is get together with each other to discuss a unified PR strategy. The fact that this country is on an unsustainable spending spree that cannot be corrected by squeezing more money out of the taxpayers shouldn´t be a difficult message to sell. Time to do a bit more campaigning of our own.

T´was a time before the election when I thought critical articles on Obama meant something, meant the public was beginning to see the destruction of our country and his utter faiiureship as a leader. Now, I know that writers´ opinions are just that, what they think. They don´t enlighten the sleeping public, they don´t move the dial. Those voters cared not a wit. I no longer take heart. All articles at this point, are just chronicling the destruction. Sad!

No sense in giving the democrats more of what they are already misusing-taxes. They should be made to prove cost to benefit of the first stimulus, before more is given.

Everything mentioned in Mister My Way or the Highway´s agenda on fiskle cliff are giveaways-no self sustaining agenda for citizens is mentioned.

I agree with #12 and #20 also. As we watch Obama´s puppeteer direct the destruction of yet another government, the House should just agree to all demands. The left will get what they want one way or another. If votes aren´t there, fraud always works.

.... Maybe the newsies and other ignorant leftists need to see America fall into the hands of dictatorship. Expect whines when voters realize their lives just got worse.

Obama doesn´t want to avoid the fiscal cliff, he is making the republicans an offer they can´t accept. Even the cry baby who signalled in advance his willingness to cave must be embarrassed. The house should pass a bill to cut all prior stimulus spending from the budget and eliminate baseline budget increases, zero out the budget of any federal department that is not clearly in the constitution put in a reduction of 10% in all the others except defence which has already been cut, cut the white house budget to the same as the british royal family, extend the Bush tax rates with no sunset, and cut all entitlements to the fraction necessary to balance the budget to the current federal revenue. When this is passed leave town and defend it till the population understands the need for spending discipline. If Obama can double down on his demands why not the cry baby!

If the only way to get spending cuts is to do nothing, then the Rs should do nothing. Tax increases will pinch all of us, but most of us are smart enough and capable enough to cut personal discretionary spending and taxable income. It´ll be interesting to see what Obama´s end game is here. Just when the economy begins to recover from the recession caused by his unwillingness to be a serious man, Obamacare will be fully kicking in. What fun!

Obie is confident that much of the republican base and all the tea party will abandon the Republican Party as we´ve known it. It will be suicide for the party and that´s his goal.

I bet more than a few on our side of aisle are beginning to understand the move. They have to walk, or they might as well disband. Seriously.

Obama clearly wants to go over the cliff. He´s setting it up so he can blame it on the Republicans. He gets the taxes the Republicans get the blame.

Stop negotiating. Declare there´s nothing you can do to stop Obama from taking us over the cliff. His demands are worse than the cliff itself. So give it to him. Let him own the cliff. He´s running the show, let him have the responsibility/blame.

If you do anything else you give Obama the power to destroy the Republican party.

Obviously Hawaii is a nicer place to spend vacation time than Chicago.
It´s a no-brainer.
You also don´t want to remind people about your felon friend Rezko.

The cliff isn´t much - just go over it and help Obama start another recession.

The midterm elections coming up in 2014 should be a doozy against Obama.
Historically the sixth year of a presidency (the midterm of the second term) results in
horrificly bad numbers in Congress for the incumbent president´s party.

A little recession... and multiple ugly factors (Obamacare, etc)...
should anger voters and turn out the Tea Party bigtime, in force.

That should increase the House and take the Senate for the GOP in November 2014.
Even W couldn´t stem the tide in 2006, despite good vote results against the odds
that he achieved in 2002 midterms.
Year Six is always ugly. This one will be even worse.

Lotsa peeps are gonna be feelin´ very nasty by 2014.

The country has already failed. The death blow occurred in 2008 when the trillions in stimulus money was wasted on barry´s vote-buying schemes. That money is unrecoverable and we will be decades in digging out of the hole. May he and his family rot in Hawaii or Kenya or whereever he calls home while better people rebuild America. I have never seen a bigger bunch of incompetent, delusional amateurs gathered in one place.

Let. It. Burn. Slap the American people in the face that all the government they think they need costs a lot of money and the fiscal cliff is a way to show them just how much.

After all, this is what the "half-a-loaf" R´s & D´s decided to do last time around. And, if the R´s negotiate from a position of who gets hurt worse, they´re more stupid than I thought. R´s ALWAYS get hurt worse, due to the complicit stenographers in major media. Let. It. Burn.

If America has re-elected an unserious president it is simply because we have become an unserious people. If we are what we eat, certainly we elect who we are.

We were serious once, on 9/12/2001. We were united. But that unity and resolve were frittered away by a purposeless leader and his progressive advisors, more interested in nation building among the simians on monkey island than destroying the threat to America.

We are now adrift, with a leader whose rallying cry is more “sideways” than “forward.” “In God we trust” has been replaced by “feed me, clothe me, house me, help me.” The race snobs who tut-tutted at the demands of black New Orleans residents now have the spectacle of white Sandy “victims” proclaiming their helplessness. The New York of the iron workers marching to Ground Zero to dig with their bare hands on the very day of the attack has morphed into the Staten Island of the newly homeless, staring at wreckage a month old and asking who will clean up the mess for them.

Drive it over the cliff. I’m sick and tired of hearing about it.

In the liturgical calendar, Sunday is "New Year´s Day" as it is the first Sunday of Advent. I am a committed Christian, so this is an important day for me. The Holy Season of Advent reminds us that Jesus the Savior came into this world bodily over 2000 years ago. It reminds us also that Jesus will come again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords--in justice and peace and mercy.

I have been a flag-flying, flag-waving American. Because of Obama and the direction this country is headed (along with the many years of decline it has taken to get us to this point), I will no longer fly the American flag in front of my house starting Sunday 2 December 2012. Obama is not my king. The United States and the State of Illinois are not my final home.

While I am a loyal citizen of the United States and resident of Illinois, my first loyalty beyond all others is to Jesus Christ. To show that loyalty to King Jesus, I will fly the flag of my faith, which bears the image of the cross.

Each morning as I leave my home to go to work, I will be reminded of where my loyalty truly lies: In the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. I have no king but him. He is the true--the SERIOUS--king!

Walk away. Let the cliff come. If you´re worried about the military, forget it. Our military is going to be decimated anyway. This country is like an alcoholic on a years-long binge. Only when the alcoholic is near death does he change his ways. And sometimes he chooses death over change. I think in 2012 we chose death over change. It´s going to be a rough ride. But we have enough Red States to start over with a new confederation of the sane. I live in California, and we chose death over life. Damn shame, we were a great State, and we were once a great nation. It´s all gone folks. We need to start over after the disaster. Zero will be swept away like the Marxist he is.

Negotiating with Marxists/communists is always very difficult to impossible. Just ask Henry Kissinger. The only thing they understand is force. If Obama and his Marxist/communist friends refuse to negotiate in good faith, go over the cliff and greet them at the bottom with bayonets.

Obama is a Blaojevich clone on steriods. The people from Illinois know that he will spend, offer roayal edits, and live like a King and thumb his nose at everyone even his own democrat party. The one hope is the Illinois democrats impeached Blagojevich before he was sent to Federal prison with Obama´s other Chicago friend and felon, Tony Rezko.

I keep thinking I´m in a bad dream and need to wake up fast! How in blazes did this con man become an 8-year occupant of the White House, just like the impeached Clinton? We are truly surrounded by idiots in this once - great nation....and they outnumbered us somehow in this last fraudulent election, didnt they?

Don´t waste your time on this, folks. It´s all show. Some very bigs cajones involved right now. Hard to believe Obie and his hoods are working for us, no? The bandaid fix will come, surprise, surprise. And, don´t look for any big year market-wise in 2013.

Negotiating with Obama is not surprisingly akin the negotiating experience Israel has with the Palestinians.

Obama and family are heading to Hawaii, his adopted "home", for the holidays. He has no worries about the debt cliff. The plan is already in place. Either the Republicans will stay firm on no separate tax increase for the wealthy (in which the deadline passes and taxes surge up for all) or the Republicans cave in to Obama and can then be shown as weak and soft. O can´t lose in either case. A burdened and defeated citizenry will then need government to survive. And take away their guns and it´s many times worse. Going around Congress via executive orders well over 900 times already, what we have is a dictatorship. For those of us who have accepted Christ, remember: He said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Stand on that. Heads up.

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Pitiful Pulitzer Pick

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
