Obama says Congress really needs to
do something about the fiscal cliff

Hello Everybody. For the past couple months, I’ve been working with people in both parties — with the help of business leaders and ordinary Americans — to come together around a plan to grow the economy and shrink our deficits. It’s a balanced plan that protects the middle class, cuts spending in a responsible way and asks the wealthiest to pay a little more. I’ll keep working with anybody who’s serious about getting a comprehensive plan like this done. [Snip] But we’re now at the point where the law says that every American’s tax rates are going up.

As soon as the Dems come up with significant spending cuts that actually MEAN something, the Pubbies will go along. My fear is that the coward Republicans will go along anyway on anything. Serious cuts to say, defund the EPA, do away with Homeland Security and ATF, and then I awoke and taxes were sky high, spending was sky high and all was right in DC. s/o

In retrospect, the Constitution should have included one more requirement for POTUS: raised as a Christian. This 24X7 lying mussie POS is destroying the country.

It´s not just him. Obama is not the problem. He is a symptom of the problem. The problem is all the people who voted for him. Who believe him. Who think he knows what he is doing, that he is honest, that he is sincere when he claims to be above politics. The problem is American universities, which are crawling and infested with anti-American Leftists like Obama. The problem is the mass media, including the news and entertainment sectors, also riddled with Left wing partisan ideology. And of course the Democratic party, which is currently in the grip of Left wingers opposed to almost every single traditional American value.

There are tens of millions of adults who actually think Obama is on the right track and that the policies he and his Leftist pals are pushing will be good for the country. They really and truly believe this, and nothing, absolutely nothing anybody can say or do will change their minds. They are beyond listening to arguments and other viewpoints.

They are going to have to see and experience for themselves what happens.

The best thing is to go over the cliff and stay there. This country is in serious jeopardy as the number of those not paying any Federal income tax at all approaches 50%, while we are building a permanent unemployed class with benefits seemingly that are approaching infinity and disability claims are the new, early, early retirement plans.

I really do not want to pay more taxes but I prefer a system that more evenly takes from all of us rather than makes of us a nation of envy rather than aspiration.

While the political rherotic soars nobody seems to notice that fiscal year 2013, which started October 1, 2013 the borrowing makes the excesses of the past few years seem paltry.

For the first time the Social Security system has paid out more than it took in by $47B, putting it in the red. This only happened because Social Security revenues was foolishly cut by more than 20% for the past few years.

The Democrat strategy is to build a permanent voting class that pays absoulutely no taxes whatsoever but can be counted on to reliability vote for greater and greater taxes for those who have to support them. The Republicans, seemingly the inept, stupid party keep falling victim to this strategy.

So one more chance, let the sequestration on cuts go into effect, let the tax rates go up, stop permanent unemployment compensation, restore Social Security revenue and cut more spending or we won´t have to worry about falling off the clift, we will drop of Mt. Everest.

In meetings in college and from then on, he was the guy who said little, contributed nothing, just sat there and soaked up what everyone else said.

In the Illinois State Sentate he voted Present. He only presented bills for vote that the Jones guy (powerhouse whose name I forget) took from the poor senator(s) who did all the work and handed to Obie to give him a PR boost.

In the U. S. Senate he voted Present. Or in ways that were counter to the best interests of the citizens of the United States.

The story continues. He is a cypher.

Reply #11, you are so correct. I have never seen such a incompetent, useless, do nothing State Senator, Federal Senator, U.S. President. A coward afraid to speak for the U.S.A. against our complete enemies, a coward to do anything for the working Americans here. We need Herman Cain, or Colonel West, both now, they are real Americans.

Obama needs to do something about the wasteful spending that brought us to the edge of the cliff. His Gravy Train Committee must be the only people in Washington who actually work because the train is getting longer and moving faster. The Republicans were stupid enough to get caught in this no-win situation that is now called a cliff, a choice between raising taxes on everybody or raising taxes on the rich. Either way, it´s a forced tax increase with no spending cuts, exactly what Obama wanted.

If we had honest people at the networks they would be saying that obama has never worked a day in his life including the time he was in the senate. To have to listen to this fraud as his word means anything is infuriating!

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

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

   

 



 
Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

Obama to free hundreds of drug

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

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.

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.

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

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
