Obama´s idea of ´compromise´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran

What was McConnell thinking? The fiscal cliff deal passed by the Senate contains $1 in spending cuts for every $41 in tax hikes. Brietbart: According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion-a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts. When Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush increased taxes in return for spending cuts-cuts that never ultimately came-they did so at ratios of 1:3 and 1:2.

The GOP is at fault as well. Folks, get your own life in order and forget about the Government. When fighting the Government, you will always lose.

Another thing; I get so mad when I hear 0bama talking about protecting the seniors. This man, 0bama, took almost a trillion dollars worth of benefits from the seniors in his 0bamacare; 0bama is no friend of the seniors. Many services will be limited for the older Americans under his 0bamacare. Every senior should know this man, 0bama, lies when he says he is out there to protect them.

Once again itty bitty mitch has turned his brain in to Satan, harry and obama. This is so he can be known as the great compromiser. He is just like those leaders in 1930s Germany who betrayed their people to adolph hitler. Or quizling of Norway who was executed after WWII for being a traitor.

The House of Representatives, with Republicans in the majority, should vote NO on this bill, and shut down every penny of spending ,where legal, until the Senate provides a budget and the President agrees to spending CUTS. If necessary, shut down the Government, period, until they force Obama to agree to these spending cuts. It is very easy. Start with the elimination of the Dept of Education and keep going from there. These are corrupt, perverse, useless agencies to begin with, and not needed to run the Country. Keep the tax money where it originates so that the Federal Government does not skim off the top and then return it disproportionately from where it started.

Compromise = the republican leaders surrender . Bankruptcy , depression , homelessness and starvation will be the result. But don´t despair, we can watch the obamas have parties. Maybe the leftovers will be passed out to the former taxpayers now living on the streets.

To be perfectly fair to Obama, we should acknowledge the challenge that compromise on his part presents for him. For how does one compromise if he knows everything, is always right, and has only the highest and purest of motives? It is an impossible situation to be in, since any so-called compromise amounts to dereliction of duty. It is true that this unusual condition seems to put all of the responsibility for compromise on Obama´s opponents, and that on the surface of things this does seem slightly unbalanced. But it cannot be helped. It is not Obama´s fault that he knows everything, is always right, and acts only from the highest and purest motives, thus leaving him no actual room for compromise without betraying his principles and the sacred truth - which are, of course the same thing. On the other hand, Republicans, who are generally in the wrong, lack understanding, and proceed from base and ignoble motives, have ample room for compromise, and there is nothing in the least unfair or unreasonable in demanding that they do so.

Tax and Spend Demonrats have been this way for decades, they never intend to cut one thin dime. Not happy with RINOs either, but did not expect anything sensible from the cavers.

Hard to believe but there´s dems equally upset because the tax increases aren´t big or broad enough. The only reason Obama didn´t dig deeper is it would have hit the union crowd.

Bill Clinton put a cap on CEO pat at a million a year,so they stared taking additional earnings in the form of stock options. This could have possibly led to the Enron fiasco.Enron employes had to take their retirement fund contributions in company stock,while the big wigs were allowed to invest anywhere. There was no way out for those people who lost millions at least.

So in the case of these tax increases people may take pay cuts and take pay in stock which falsely inflates the stock´s value.

The fatal error continues.

Treating Obama as just a political opponent abets his destruction of the nation, or more correctly, of our literally-vital principles.

People like Boehner, McConnell, McCain, and the other aisle-reachers [who sell out our founding principles in favor of "collegiality"] are part of the problem. Part of a very, very serious problem. We flatly must recognize the threat and fight it tooth and nail. And threat it is; it´s not "political opposition."

#6: The biggest attack on "seniors" [read: honest citizens who´ve done the right things and acted responsibly] has been how gov´t [mostly from the Left, but the so-called right has been "better" only in not being quite as bad] has destroyed the value of homes, investments, savings, and buying power.

It´s perfect.

Obama and the Democrats will need to bargain ahead of the debt limit ceiling.

And they got all they wanted, except the ability to spend it and borrow it.

Thank you poster #13. I especially agree with your second paragraph. In the past few days so many in the media and Congress have said they are certain Obama does NOT want to go over the "fiscal cliff." They always give him the benefit of the doubt despite all of his actions over the past four years showing him to be the most destructive leader toward our country ever.

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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
