Obama to Republicans:
my offer is this, nothing

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/30/2012 7:41:10 AM

Tim Geithner presented John Boehner with the Obama plan for averting the “fiscal cliff.” According to the New York Times, Obama’s plan calls for $1.6 trillion in tax increases over 10 years, $50 billion in immediate stimulus spending, home mortgage refinancing, and a permanent end to Congressional control over statutory borrowing limits. President Obama would also agree to a goal of finding $400 billion in savings from Medicare and other social programs to be worked out next year, but with no guarantees. In other words, to quote Michael Corleone, “My offer is this, nothing. Not even the money

So -- it´s over the cliff we go. Far better a cliff than falling into the Obama abyss.

Why doesn´t every Republican start every sentence they utter with "We must cut spending . . . "?

$50 billion in stimulus - he means $50 billion in donor pay-backs; obligations for the re-election.

Why would the NYT reporter be surprised? This is the way he has ruled since he took power 4 years ago. Nothing new here.


The sooner we go over the cliff, the quicker all his supporters will realize they´ve been duped, again!

The sooner progressives and the media bring America to its knees, the sooner the people who know better can put the nation back on its feet. – Arnold Ahlert, Canada Free Press

Rush Limbaugh said the same thing yesterday.

Dictator-in-Chief Obama continues to confirm the wisdom of that view.

If we would simply cut out ALL the freebies given to illegals, just the illegals, we would save the country ~$300 billion. A Year. Each Year. Don´t buy the pap floated by the WH about the funding two wars/military spending is what put the country into debt. We spend over $300 billion a year in welfare, free medical, EBTs, anchor baby deliveries, free housing, free cell phones, free education in our public schools, WIC programs, police protection, jails, etc. etc. on just illegals alone and this burden on the taxpayer is increasing with each passing day that our borders are flooded with them.

So basically he wants higher taxes, excuse me, I meant to say "revenues", more spending and in return he wants us to take his word that he will cut spending at some future unspecified date. My question is, why the hell would anyone take his word for anything. He wouldn´t know the truth if it walked up and smacked him in the face. He has already proven to be a pathological liar.

The House should cease agreeing to any funding for the government. Spending bills originate there. Don´t originate any.

I´m of the opinion that everyone should pay income taxes. Period. Bush created this monster when he eliminated income taxes for those making less than X number of dollars per year. Tax PAYERS pay more attention to spending than tax CONSUMERS.

Frankly, taking the fiscal cliff is better than raping the wealthy for more give-aways for the moochers. The democrats are not serious about reigning in spending....and they keep repeating the mantra that they won the election and America voted for increased taxes. Ignoring all of the exit polling that showed that the population prefered and trusted Romney more on the economy.

Are these Dems kidding? Twice they have offered this type of deal to raise taxes now and we will lower expenditures later. They never, ever lowered spending and thus screwed the Repubs. Perhaps the Repubs. liked being raked over the coals!

The first thing that needs to happen is for the Rupublicans challange the premise of the debate. The budget they are referring to is the one Obama presented that recieved no votes. Why are we discussing that budget.
Call Harry Reid out on not presenting a budget for the last three years. None of these polititicians from either side will state the fact that no one has offered anything that will "cut" any spending. It is just a low level of increases in the ongoing budget that was bloted by the stimulus package and continues to grow.

2016....$25 Trillion in debt.

Wanna bet ?

If past actions of the Repubs is any indicator, they´ll fold like a cheap rug.

After all, job security is so much more important than a national fiscal policy that makes any sense at all.

Everything out of his mouth has an expiration date #9. It is not just the rich that will be taxed folks. If the base would start paying attention, they would realize that by stealing 401K´s as the WH would like to do, they are going to be hit too. It is a 2 part scheme going on here. But the commenters here are smart enough to know that already.

Obama needs an "intervention" from Republicans, so Obama can enter a rehab for his spending addiction.
The problem is not lack of revenue, the problem is TOO MUCH spending.
NO tax hikes without serious spending cuts in EVERYTHING except the military.

I´m 52, I´ve been in the workforce for 30 years as an RN. I´m in excellent health and had planned to keep working until around 60 because I like my job and I get to come to work and help others every day. I´m seriously thinking of retiring very soon. I´m tired of getting up at 530 or 6 am every day, working 10-12 hours, just so Obama can take my hard-earned money and redistribute to those who can´t seem to get their acts together to support themselves. After this last election, I´m about done. Sorry for the sour grapes.

Zero2 is now treating America like an old lover who he is bored with and doesn´t care whether she goes, stays or dies.

And, who can blame him? He cheated and lied during his first term, then goofed off during his re-election and still got re-elected [peace be upon all the dead people who voted for him.] Why should he show respect?

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences

Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article

The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

   

 



 
Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
