Obama´s Ruinous Course
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/5/2012 10:13:57 PM

A wise judge once wrote in dissent that the Constitution is not a suicide pact. Let us now extend that wisdom to presidential elections. Barack Obama says his election victory is a mandate to pursue the policy course he´s insisting on in negotiations with Republicans on the fiscal cliff. He wants a tax increase of $1.6 trillion, $50 billion of new and immediate stimulus spending and the end of congressional approval to raise the ceiling on U.S. debt—the debt that a ratings agency downgraded in 2011. The campaign stump speech in which Mr. Obama demanded that

So be it! Obama´s Ministry of Truth will cover up his profound and abysmal failure for a time, but the advancing disaster of his foul policies will eat at his support within 2013. 2014!

Go for the cliff; The problem isn´t having an agreement... the problem is Not having a budget!

Someone has to adhere to the constitution & produce a balanced budget!

Obama has never had to manage within a budget... ever! So he gets to make up phoney baselines... and they always exceed revenues.

Balance the Budget or Go Home!!!!!

A fool and his money are soon parted. American voters play the fool for this hateful, creepy, little troll of a president. Ruin in his wake pleases him greatly, and he is getting good at it.

JAY CARNEY: Sir, even our media lackeys are grumbling about your Hawaiian family holiday in the midst of the budget crisis.
DAVID AXELROD: The optics would be bad, Mr. President.
OBAMA: Fine. I’ll go alone. Michelle and the kids’ll stay home until the Republicans cave. Jay, call Abramson at the Times. I’ll want an editorial ready about the first family held hostage by GOP intransigence. Tim, any movement from Boehner?
GEITHNER: He’s agreed to a 92% rate on people making over $11,000; confiscation of the assets of millionaires and billionaires, with waivers for Buffet, Spielberg, Soros, and a few others; a national air breathers’ fee; and a pledge that the House will pass whatever the Senate sends him.
OBAMA: Pathetic. Jay issue a statement in my name: ´´Republicans have yet to present a serious proposal to avoid fiscal calamity.´´

But Mr. Henninger, he won (again)...

One thing I will critique the Romney/Ryan campaign about is their failure to explain to the public that why are some rich folks evil and others are not? Why is an investor like Buffet good but Romney himself bad? Why are Hollywood celebrities and athletes who make gazillions of dollars good but a highly trained medical doctor or surgeon bad?

obama never wanted a "deal" -- he gets all he wants when WE go over the cliff....

So -- let the chips fall. Those of US who have survived hitler and stalin and castro -- will survive obama.....

The young demorats will have to suffer a bit more before they understand the danger of their messiah. Until then -- all WE conservatives can do -- is think locally and survive.... The republicans will get blamed for the tax increases that obama is sliding in through the back door. Nothing WE can do about it -- but -- hold on till everyone gets fed up.....enough to march on Washington DC...

Boehner, McConnell and Ryan (yes I put him here too) are just toying with us. They are in on this gag. While I suspect that this crisis is partially ginned up (versus the real proxy war going on in Syria which is about to blow), this has the potential to put us into a real depression.

The most effective strategy would be an end run--insist on the Simpson-Bowles committee findings. ´This was your committee, Mr. President, and we are going with it." End of discussion, and then state the Congress is going out of session in X days.

It´s so obvious, and I´m hardly the first to state it. But Boehner and company are in on the deal to ruin this country. Why Ryan, if he really has some B****, doesn´t lead a revolt against this Speaker, is beyond me.

Sheep will follow their leader even if they go over a cliff. Those who voted for obama thinking he will take from the rich and give to the poor will be sad when they realize he´s already spent the money he promised them . In spite of what obama says about the rich there is an end to the money and the free ride. But the good news is obama promised equality. We will all be equally starving.(except obama and soros) Credit card ´denied´!

Bring on the automatic sequester! If the mess we´re in now is a sample of the best Obama and Congress can do, then a sequester is preferable. Yeah, I know, it would severely restrict funds to our military; but on the other hand, that would sort of cripple Obama and Comrades´ program to intervene in Egypt and continue the installation of radical Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.

Rush nailed it. In less than one year, the country and the world will view tax cuts and spending reductions as the cause of any and all economic downturns including high unemployment. The GOP is walking right into it and will do their standard brave procedure which of course is fall down, roll over and soil themselves, claiming victory.

RUSH: From Katie Pavlich at Town Hall.com: "According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for ´lying´ about political activity." So Eric Holder and Lois Lerner not only are liars, they´re in cahoots. Lois Lerner was asking the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute people like Catherine Engelbrecht. This woman, this Lerner, this is a witch. This is a very unhappy --

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

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

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
