Night talks: Obama, Boehner
meet on ´fiscal cliff´

Associated Press, by Andrew Taylor and Jim Kuhnhenn

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/13/2012 10:05:35 PM

WASHINGTON -- Face to face with time running short, President Barack Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner negotiated at the White House Thursday night in what aides called "frank" talks aimed at breaking a stubborn deadlock and steering the nation away from an economy-threatening "fiscal cliff." Boehner returned to the Capitol an hour later, briskly walking past reporters without comment. There was no indication whether any progress had been made, though the use of the word "frank" by both sides to describe the talks suggested the president and the speaker stuck hard to their opposing

Push them both off!

The best thing that could happen at this point is for the US to go over that cliff

I hope Boehner is getting adequate rest and staying alert. He has to go to the WH and also deal with the House and his party. That can be exhausting.

And tired people make bad decisions - not that I admire Boehner that much when he is at his best.

Obama is always at home in the WH and has the home field advantage. And he really doesn´t have to deal with dissent from his colleagues.

When we go over the cliff he will get 451 billion in new tax revenue and a commitment to cut 1 trillion over 10 years. Simple math says the deficit for 2013 ought to decrease by 551 billion. That´s a good start.

Boehner looks pretty grim these days. While the moron potus larks about laughing and playing. Obama truly does not have a clue and has no desire to protect and preserve this great country. Same goes for the entire dem party.

The rope/a dope play or as I like to call it -- the razzle/dazzle....

I´m starting to understand the entrenched republicans who have lived all their political careers in DC are having US for breakfast.

They are chummmmmy with the demorats of a similar persuasion. It´s all soooooo civilized...

The problem with the republlicans is that the Tea Party members who have showed up -- don´t play the tell the people anything and do what YOU want game....hence their beling pulled off committees that "matter"....

The real story here is --- the democrats across this country are being sold down the river along with WE republicans -- and NOW they are starting to "get it"....

Why do the dems never have to offer up any legitimate proposals in this fiscal conversation? Obama´s budget ideas never get any traction--even in his own congress. He gets more traction out of the media than the congress.
And his medical device tax is getting ready to explode all over this country, and primarily in the dem land of the northeast.
John Boehner needs to say enough, and go home.

Send two bills to the Senate.

First: Extending present tax rates with no expiration date.

Second: A budget based upon the last budget that was passed by Congress and Signed by the President less 5% across the the board.

Then go home secure in the knowledge that you have done something that will irritate the opposition to no end. And while you are home, meet with every civic group and hammer the fact that you did your job, you have acted and it is the opposition that refuses to accept or offer any alternative.

BECAUSE REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE BILLS ARE SUPPOSED TO ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE.

Sorry, I guess I shouldm´t be shouting, but this is getting rather trite.

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. The Cadillac tax that goes into effect in a few years, he

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

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

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. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

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.

Michelle Obama:

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
