Don’t Go Wobbly
Weekly Standard, by Fred Barnes

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/3/2012 6:55:03 AM

Four years ago, President Obama followed the advice of Rahm Emanuel never to let a crisis go to waste. He proposed an economic stimulus package brimming with pork and favors for Democratic interest groups. House Republicans were fearful of crossing a new president as the recession deepened, but they mustered the moxie to vote no, unanimously. It turned out to be one of the smartest moves they ever made. Freshly reelected, the president wants to exploit a crisis again. This time it’s the fiscal cliff mess.

Was on the flight back from DC yesterday with dead fish RAHM EMMANUEL...Better believe he was in DC to advise Obama on how to game the Republicans....and to once again get everything he wants....

Hang tough Boehner...remind the press...We the People didn´t give Obama control of the Congress ...and for a reason...so Obama wouldn´t have control of America´s Checkbook...Obama didn´t Win Everything this time because of his fiscal irresponsibility...and his wild-eyed spending

You are quite correct, #1. Mr. Obama prefers tax revenge over tax revenue, and has said so on several occasions.

My prediction: Obama is too blinded by idealism to cut spending, so he drives us over the fiscal cliff.
Remember those Bush tax cuts that were only for the rich? Now everyone pays more in taxes! Pubbies keep saying the same thing over and over and over: We offered tax hikes, Obama could not cut spending. He drove us over the cliff, not us.
After a year of tax hikes, the Obamacare bills come due in January 2014. Finally, the Obamabots feel the pinch from his disasterous policies and they can´t wait to throw him under the bus.
Pubbies do great in the 2014 midterms, with a presidential election close behind.

Obama doesn´t realize that the real taxpaying working citizens that are paying for his circus didn´t vote for him. His popularity and approval ratings will drop like a rock after January 1st. The voters who really count will jerk his chain big time.

We need to be very vocal in our support of not caving. We have shown over the last two years, that unless the Repubs hear from us, they go wobbly.

Zero has no mandate. It´s time to teach him what checks and balances mean. We need to use Rham´s mantra, and use this crisis to our advantage.

Could someone please tell the GOP how to message?

Sadly, I´ve been burned too many times by believing Establishment Republicans. I think they´ll cave instead of hanging tough and together.

I really really want to believe the GOP will oppose the President on principle of lowering taxes for everyone.

The Establishment GOP will go wobbly. They´ve done it before and despite unanimous opposition of House Republicans to Øbama´s ´stimulus package´ I think they´ll cave.

The DemoRATS know it, Establishment Republicans know it, and many Americans know it. It´s just a matter of political posturing now...

NO, NO, NO! Barnes´ entire piece accepts the premise that we need to compromise these issues. That is exactly the position the Democrats want us to be in -- accepting THEIR premises that taxes must be raised on anyone. For God´s sake, Barnes, get off the "we must compromise" sled, will you?

What is wrong with making Democrats accept the GOP premise that no taxes need be raised, that spending and entitlements MUST be cut, and that it is up to the Democrats who made this mess to fix it without GOP fingerprints?

Dammit! What does it take to get thru to the GOP to quit being REactive and start being PROactive?

As proven by his astonishing statement during the first (2008) presidential debates, our president is a man who does not know a balance sheet from an income statement, nor how the two interrelate. Evidently, the same goes for financial "genius" Geithner, and currency debaser Bernanke. Yet he and the rest of the Comrades claim they are proposing a workable budget for the United States of America? They really think that we are as stupid as they are.

Yes-agree #10. This line in the sand, by the Republicans, is probably just for show. It makes for great theatrics. Oh the drama as we head to the fizzle cliff!

Then, at the last minute, the pubs flip and give Obama everything he wants, as long as he flips them a promise to cut spending some day. Everyone is happy! Obama gets to go to Hawaii after all(whew-what if he had to stay in DC? Wouldn´t wish that on him/ha ha). Boehner will say it was their responsibility to come together to do what´s, ahem, best for the country.

If CEO´s were running a corp like this, they would have been canned long ago. Any subsequent CEO delivering this level of performance would be let go as well. Yet we get to keep the same miserable players and continue the march to sky is the limit debt. Those politicians in DC are not worth what they are being paid.

[[[To strengthen their hand, Republicans would be smart to stress two things. One is the Simpson-Bowles commission’s strategy for handling the debt and deficit crisis. The Obama-created commission said uncontrolled spending is the cause of the problem, that the best way to gain more revenue is through tax reform, and that any deal must be bipartisan. Republicans agree and should say so loudly. Obama doesn’t agree.]]]

Yes! And, if it comes to it, call Obama´s bluff and go over the cliff. Then we´ll actually have more leverage. Don´t believe the MSM on that.

Most Americans don´t have a shred of economic sense. That´s why they easily jump on the ´tax the rich´ bandwagon like it will instantly solve everything and we can go on like nothing happened. I remember Clinton´s famous statement that ´even I think I raised taxes too much´. A $1.6 trillion tax hike on the investors and small business owners will crush the economy. Obama knows this. It is the hapless morons who voted for him who have yet to figure this out.

#24, I too remember that Clinton statement, "even I think I raised [your] taxes too much."

As I recall, he made that statement in front of a group of businessmen in TX -- a group who were decidedly cool in their reception of Clinton ... thus prompting his admission!

Yet this is ignored today by Dem propagandists who claim that the our economy "flourished" under Clinton´s ´92-´93 tax hikes. NOT TRUE!

It was only after the GOP swept Congress in ´94, and imposed some degree of fiscal control, that our economy brightened into the halcyon days of the mid-to-late ´90s -- falsely credited by journos to Clinton.

The reality of the situation is that if the Republicans do hold line and we go over the cliff, the only ones that stand to be hurt are those who actually have jobs of own small businesses. The wealthy won´t like it, but it won´t change their life style. And the 47%(?) that don´t pay taxes simple won´t care. That is unless their government check stops coming. Then they will riot in the streets and demand that their freebees continue unabated.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

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.

"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.

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.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

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.
