Obama Emerges, Promises
Three More Days of Posturing

Hot Air, by Bryan Preston

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/29/2012 4:47:58 AM

Saying that he is “modestly optimistic,” President Obama emerged this evening to call the afternoon meeting at the White House between himself and Congressional leaders “constructive.” Obama said that Senate leaders Reid and McConnell will try reaching a deal on the cliff, and if they cannot, he wants an up or down vote in the House and the Senate on a slimmed down deal that preserves current tax rates on the middle class. The Republican House tried moving just such a deal last week, but failed on the fact that tax rates would still go up

"Adjunct Professor"? He was a lecturer, a very biased lecturer who has proven he does not know or does not care about our Constitution.
His long suits are campaigning and reading teleprompters.

Whenever you hear one of these people say "the deal isn´t perfect but it´s the best one we could get" get ready to grab your ankles. If Boehner and the House rolls over on an Obama biased proposal,they´ll need to find a new job in 2015.

Obviously Obama is stalling to get their backs against the wall so they cave. I say take the cliff rather than give Obama what he wants.You´re going to get bad press either way.

Going over the cliff will awaken many of the dolts who work for a living but feel the Squatter is our messiah. Let the numerous Hollywierds and millions of us working stiffs feel the pain for a short time that this mess will eventually bring in spades without a true correction. That´s a balanced budget, (What budget? There ain´t no budget) control of fraud and control of entitlements and more.

Maybe an uprising will generate an unequivocal understanding that US minions aren´t going to take it any more. Too many believe that the handouts will be forthcoming. What they don´t understand is that they will go only to the 47%; i.e. Voters who gave us the Squatters including those grifters on the gummint dole!

“Three more days of posturing.” Plus four years of having done so and four more years in the offing. That’s enough posturing for a lifetime. Even several lifetimes. Under his leadership, corruption has almost become an art form.

Go over. Everyone will suffer but those who re-elected this monstrosity of a regime will suffer the most. Call it Schadenfreude but I don´t see anything wrong with that.

Perhaps Coulter is right. The republicans should vote present and let the democrats own this one. When people start losing their jobs they can blame the dems.

Aaarrrggghhh!! The Democrats will NEVER ´´own´´ anything! They are experts at Alinsky, while the Senate and House Republicans (/s) don´t seem to even KNOW about Alinsky Rules, much less apply them back IN RETURN.

And what´s with ´´modestly optimistic´´? Did he mean MODERATELY optimistic? What does modesty have to do with optimism? Here again, Barcky´s well known narcissism is front and center. He knows no modesty. Taking credit for something he is hopeful for..... (this was not a question).

Obama will blame Republicans for everything, now and forever (if we let him), and the drones will know no different. And they won´t care. Whatever schadenfreude we may get from the upcoming disasters in their lives, will make no difference and will bite us back in the end. Drones won´t accept that Obama and the Democrats set this in motion - and care not one whit about them, really - only that the Republicans caused it because that´s all they´ll hear from their dronemasters.

Or the Republicans will cave (again) and Obama will be the Hero of the Universe. Again.

Nobel Committee, Line 1!

Two things are NOT happening that SHOULD:

First....what party was responsible for making sure the "Bush Tax Rates" were "temporary" ???? Can any news organization find who proposed that or inserted that language into the bill ?

Second....this tax situation is NOTHING MORE than a return to the "Clinton Tax Rates". Call it that every time. The Dems think of the Clinton years as the time of our lives, so call it that and LET them own that.

Spending cuts are the secondary part of the equation, but we are losing the PR battle by letting the Democrat press define the issues (i.e. "fiscal cliff", "Bush Tax cuts", etc)

Everything Obama and the Dems have done over the last four years has been about avoiding having to vote on a budget. Maybe we´ll get a "Gang of Six" or a "Gaggle of Four" deal this time again. What a crock of garbage.

In re #2, yes absolutely. We are about to get a small sample of what happened to the Greeks. But, look, if I was in Boehner´s and McConnell´s shoes, accepting tax increases not as hard to swallow if dollar for dollar spending cuts are adopted at the same time. Whew...but, this sounds equivalent to going over the cliff.

Anything the pubbies do will just be criticized by the MSM. Anything the dems do will be the story of the day for the MSM.
The pubbies need to stand back and watch-that´s it. Let the MSM beat them up and move on. Boehner and McConnell-do not put your fingerprints on anything. Coulter is right this time.

Obama couldn´t care less about what is in the Constitution. It is just an annoying obstacle for him that he has to override. I am sure his so-called students walked away with the same attitude. That is how liberal cancer spreads.

The only way to turn public opinion if this happens will be by a resurgence of Tea Party activism. This time hopefully with higher GenX participation. Our million strong Tax Day march on Washington in 2009 and numerous rallies across America setup the 2010 rout. Obama plans to blame Republicans for his new taxes via the media but a grassroots campaign can overcome that. One can only hope.

obama is back in D/C but his focus will be to increase the deficit and to play politics, not avert a fiscal cliff.

This empty suit president knows his paycheck is there every Friday, Air Force 1 has got plenty of gas, and the White House kitchen is always open, and always free.

NO Deal, Republicans! I´m with Coulter... make ´em own it. Elections do indeed have consequences and the idiot slackers who voted for Democrats need to feel the pain. Bush let millions of Democrat voters off the tax rolls and they´ve had no skin in the game ever since. Time to pay the piper Democrats.

A very frustrated Congressman Aaron Schock was on Greta last night and he made excellent points that you will never hear or read in the non FOX media.
The interview is on his website.
The House , including 19 Democrats , passed a clean bill saving the Bush tax cuts for everyone last summer.
Harry Reid refuses to let it come up in the Senate.
Last April 13 , Obama proposed 3 dollars
in spending cuts for every dollar raised in revenue .
Republicans believe they can raise that revenue
without increasing taxes .
Schock said that Boehner tried to save as
many " hostages " ( taxpayers ) as he could by agreeing to Obama´s April proposal and he was rebuffed.
That Obama promise had an expiration date
and it was on Nov 6.
As Schock said, the proposals made by Obama and Reid are so outlandish , it´s obvious they do not want a deal .
The House is just negotiating with itself.
The Coulter proposal is intriguing, but, the only way it might get media coverage would be a massive press conference on the steps of Capitol Hill.
Where Boehener and the Republicans would lay out their frustration at Obama´s refusal to negotiate in good faith ( or any faith ,
not even his Muslim faith) .
Republicans would have to be unified in this and that could be a problem.

I originally supported the "vote present" strategy - until NerØbama raised the ante. That strategy properly applied to what el Presidente campaigned on, not his wish list. Now that it will be their way or the highway: I vote for highway.

Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Bedard    Original Article

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

Construction on Saudi Arabia´s Kingdom Tower, which will be one whopping, expense kilometer tall, is set to commence next week, according to local reports. The Kingdom tower will measure 3,280 feet when completed, which stretches 568 feet taller than the current Guinness World Record holder for tallest man-made construction, the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai. The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea. If you´re afraid of heights, you´ll definitely want to know the 200-story building will feature a massive 98-foot terrace jutting from the side of the 157th floor. The Kingdom Tower won´t come

Holder’s undermining of the

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

Last Thursday in El Cajon, California, an Iraqi Muslim named Kassim Alhimidi was found guilty of murdering his wife, Shaima Alawadi, after she had told him that she wanted a divorce. Before Alhimidi was arrested, this murder was widely reported as an “Islamophobic hate crime”: a note was found by Alawadi’s body that read, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.” Leftists and Islamic

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
