Obama to GOP: ´Take
me out of it´

NBC News, by Carrie Dann

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/20/2012 1:47:30 PM

Saying that Republican opponents should "take me out of it," President Barack Obama appealed Wednesday for compromise on the "fiscal cliff," urging GOP House members to put aside personal and political concerns after a week marked by the Newtown shooting tragedy and continued bickering over the nation´s deficit woes. Acknowledging that his most vehement foes live in conservative districts with little political "incentive" to back the Democratic president, Obama blamed Republican rank-and-file for personalizing the politics of possible deficit reduction plans.

Take me out of it? How about just compromising--meeting in the middle--Obama? That would take YOU out of it. The miserable SOB we call president can just go to himself things that are not considered medically or physically possible, if you catch my drift! :-)

If Zippy didn´t want to be ´in it´ then he should not have run for reelection. Presidents (up to now at least) have always understood that they are on call and in it 24/7/365.
Time for ValJar to tuck him in for the night, I guess.

Obama, yesterday, said that he was seeking "compromise". I sincerely wish one of the media would have asked Obama, "What do you intend to compromise? You´re asking Republicans to compromise one of their key platform principles (lower taxes). What, precisely, are you going to compromise?"

Whenever you hear the word "compromise" out of the Left, what they mean is that you compromise and they remain steadfast in their own positions.

Why should he lead? He has the best job approval (56% Ras & Gallup)he has had since August 2009. He won the election easier than Bush did in 2004 and Bush declared a mandate. On this very day (12/20) in 2004, Bush´s job approval averaged 48.5 and his disapproval averaged 45.8- up only 2.7 points. Bambi is up 11.5 on RCP today! See Rush´s website today on low-info voters.

#8 you are right. Any Republicans of any stature should stand up now and let Obama have it for that statement. Truman said "If you can´t stand the heat get out of the kitchen" That doesn´t mean quit negotiations and go to Hawaii as our economy goes up in smoke.

Too little, too late for a primary source of the fiscal mess. Obamanation. This man makes the excessive spending of the Bush years seem trivial!

For the NBC statement "deficit reduction" read "tax increases". The democrats are NOT even pretending to reduce their extravagance and spending.

"put aside personal and political concerns" Really, then why doesn´t this socialist practice what he preaches and apply that to himself. He has to be the lowest scum that has ever occupied the WH. He is truely an affirmative action president, held to a different standard, given cover by the media and always has his thugs play the race card whenever something goes wrong.

Obama is among those for whom the category of legitimate political disagreement does not exist. When, therefore, opponents refuse to go along with his opinions and plans, they are not merely mistaken, they are driven by base motives. For ideologues like Obama there is no rational, ethical reason for anyone not to see things their way. They have lost, or perhaps in some instances never acquired, the category of political disagreement.

Shrunken and dogmatic minds like Obama´s are typical of graduates and personnel of our best universities. A liberal education used to mean an education in the liberal arts, the purpose of which was to acquire a broader and less dogmatic view of the world. In recent years the exact reverse has taken place as universities, controlled by Leftist partisans, indoctrinate rather than educate students. It would be much more accurate to call such a process an illiberal education - or a Liberal education, with the emphasis on capital L, i.e. political liberalism.

Obama can spout such nonsense with a straight face because (a) he actually believes it, and (b) the mainstream media and Liberal establishment, which also believe it, never challenge it. Thus he can get away with claiming that anybody who doesn´t go along with him is acting from bad motives and is being partisan and political, while he is only telling and proposing the honest, incontrovertible Truth.

If it didn´t mean wrecking the country, this kind of talk, and the gullibility of those who fall for it, would be hilarious. It is an unconscious form of self-parody.

Go back and listen to the tape and insert in parentheses, a black man, and you will understand the point. That is the most despicable thing I have ever heard in politics.

Plan B is what he is asking for on taxes except for the trigger of the highest rates. What he can´t abide is the disappearance of all his special give aways that started with the Stimulus. Plan B is causing him some heartburn because it is giving him what he has demanded. The spending cuts are not part of Plan B because they have already been written into law and signed by Obama.

He didn´t mean he didn´t want to be included in the process, he meant that he wanted any animus that Republicans might have for him personally not to get in the way of "compromise." In other words, he´s playing the race card.

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama plans to meet Chicago high school students in the nation´s capital Thursday when they visit Howard University to gain exposure to college life, White House aides said. Bow Wow, a rapper, actor and co-host of BET´s "106 & Park," will join a campus tour with the first lady and the Chicago Public Schools students and moderate her round-table discussion with them, her aides said. The students, juniors and seniors, will be on the first day of a four-day visit to Howard for a program called "Escape to the Mecca." The program is designed to give talented

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch.

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

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

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)

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

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
