When will Obama decide
to make a deal?

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

The president never quite sounds like a man who wants a deal. He instead invariably sounds like a pol seeking advantage over opponents, which is peculiar given that he faces no future election but will face a GOP House majority for at least two more years. He wants the other side to lose more than he wants a substantial deal to improve our fiscal situation. The Post reports that Senate discussions on a fiscal cliff-avoiding deal have experienced a “major setback.” Presumably, Democrats won’t include any serious spending cuts to accompany revenue hikes. This predictable result

Never. He does not want a deal.

Everybody predicted Obama wanted to go over the cliff so he could come back next year with a heroic tax cut of his own.Of course he´ll then dare House republican to vote against it. This will also give him an excuse to get away from Mo,flying around the country in front of union goons or college students to push his "plan".

He´s already bankrupting SS with his stupid payroll tax cut,which didn´t help the economy one bit.

So the left will rally behind Obama´s tax cuts even though they´ve railed against them for years and blamed the deficit on them. Truth is Bush´s tax cuts only account for 10% of the deficit since they passed,the rest has been pure spending.

All he wants is to rig things so he has something else to blame on the Republicans. We will have a steady stream of such maneouvers from now until 2014. This is all about regaining the house, and Axelgrease´s fingerprints are all over this.

Our problem per se is not Obama´s bad intentions and lies, nor the MFM´s shameless cover-up of Obama´s bad intentions and lies. The problem is that Obama voters, now the majority, like that Obama has bad intentions and that he lies. They support him not in spite of his destructiveness, but precisely because of it. That´s our problem.

Why make any deal when the opposition is more than willing to capitulate ?

It´s easy, Obama hates this country. If they lose, we lose or whatever. The economy is not his concern.

0bama and the MS-pravda want everyone--or at least the taxpaying public to believe (FTA) They lost the election, and with that nearly all power to force the president to do what he is loath to do, namely control spending.

This is far from the truth, the Republican controlled House of Representatives have always and still now control the purse strings...all spending must begin in the House...and if the House leadership had any testosterone...0bama would be told--at the start of every negotiation meeting...you do your job and allow us to do ours.

I wish someone would school the know-nothings about who exactly is the do-nothing when it comes to legislation, the only reason we are "facing a fiscal cliff" is Harry Reid refused to do his job and bring the House tax bill to the floor in August.

Harry Reid has violated his Oath of Office in failing to vote on every bill the House passes. Obama has violated his Oath of Office to "protect and defend the Constitution" when he writes clearly unconstitutional Executive Orders and allows the government to operate without a current, Constitutionally enacted budget. They should both be impeached!

Why do so many people think he wants to avoid running the economy and the country into the ground? His words and actions are designed to "cut this country down to size". What better way than to continue the course? Higher taxes for everyone is better for big government. Big spending cuts for the military are the liberals dream.

Running over the cliff is his goal.

#7 Is right. Obama is never running for re-election, he has the Republicans on the run and he can destroy the economy along with the middle class. Rejigger the economy along Marxist principles, make what was the middle class dependent on government subsidy and the left will rule this country for ever.

Obama will deny Ms Lindsey the privilege of having the Dems walk all over him as he was eager to do when he appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning. He left his conservative personality at home in the closet and donned the Super RINO suit for today.

Any meaningful deal will require trimming seriously the $1600 billion that he is spending every year over and above the government´s income. Giving in on that will bring the whole tent down. IMO - never.

Obama is not a serious player in this ´cliff´ negotiation. His goal is his revenge tax on the ´rich,´ which is a non-starter in the problems we face. He doesn´t want to reduce the debt. He just wants to keep spending, which is his way of crippling our country. And he has a lot of people wanting him to do just this, including all the dem politicians.

#4, No, the O´tard voters aren´t the majority. They (and the vote fraud) were the majority of those who voted, but out of almost 220 million eligible voters only 129+ million voted, a hair under 59%.
So the cheating LPs are about 65 million out of 220 million. That´s not a majority even if the propaganda arm of the LPs tries hard to make the gullible and weak-minded believe it is.

When the end comes for each of the MSM´s journalists, God will not look kindly on them. It will get ugly.

He will not look kindly on their cooperation in the destruction of His great nation.

The answer is NEVER. He is doing everything he can to Destroy this Country as we know it. Therefore, he can become a dictator because the house, senate and so-called supreme court have betrayed America and do not have enough backbone to serve as the Constitution requires them to do.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

   

 



 
The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Shoot Down a ´Government Drone´

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

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

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

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

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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
