Poll: Public would blame
GOP more than Obama if
fiscal talks fail

The Hill [Washington DC], by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/26/2012 10:43:17 AM

A new poll finds the public views the looming “fiscal cliff” as a serious crisis for the nation and would blame Republicans more than President Obama if Washington fails to reach a deal. Forty-five percent surveyed in a new CNN/ORC poll said they would blame congressional Republicans if there is no agreement, with 34 percent pointing the finger at Obama. Two-thirds say the U.S. would experience serious problems if the combination of tax rate increases and automatic spending cuts expected in January take effect.

Morons. Most of the U.S. could care less about the Federal fiscal budget. Look whom they elected. Oh. The public by and large are also morons.

Personal responsibility and hard work will never win over free stuff given to you by other´s personal responsibility and hard work. The takers and fakers will never like us, so don´t worry about the blame and make the right decisions.

Obama and the democrat party could walk up to the libs and lift their legs and urinate on them and they would thank them by once again voting them into office when the time comes.

Anticipatory headline serves to warn GOP that the obit has already been written. These Communists are growing weary of the charade of ´democracy´. They ache for the full dictatorship of Bar-Jar, unfettered and unconstrained by the foolish traditions of a crumbling republic.

A big part of me says to give them everything they want. Let them have nothing to blame the Republicans for. Give the stupid voters exactly what they voted for. Sure, people like us will suffer too, but that was always going to be if Barry got in again.

Of course they will blame republicans. They´re blaming Mitt Romney for Bengazhi for God´s sake. So what? Let the 47 percent own it. It´s time to slide down the ´fiscal cliff.´ The dirty secret is there will be no real cuts in government. Only cuts in what they are expecting to spend more next year. Which is more than this year. It´s called ´baseline´ cuts which aren´t really cuts at all. Merely programmed increases in spending. Meanwhile . . . . lift all those so called tax cuts and make people serfs faster! If we ease into Socialism the stupid voters among us won´t realize the decay as long as Obama phones are free. Do it suddenly and they might sober up.

Call Obama´s bluff if it comes to that and we´ll all go over the cliff and survive and life will go on and everyone will have the privelege of sharing in the sacrifice.

So sorry progressives. We have the House.

Republicans are going to get blamed regardless so why even bother? Here´s the real problem: to many "so called" republican voters whine and moan about how bad things are publicly and on these forms but refuse to get involved -- they expect someone else will speak for them.
I´ve done my part, contacted both of my state senators, and congressmen and let it be known I wasn´t happy with them and they could expect one less vote if they caved. If we don´t hold their feet to the fire no one will.

Obama voters will only learn the hard way. That is OK with me. I only wish the rest of us didn´t have to take the remedial course with them. It´s going to hurt - but those things that hurt instruct. Sometimes. A hard core of radicals and true believers will never learn no matter what disasters befall them, but a substantial number of Amerian idiots are capable of waking up and smelling the coffee when the going gets rough enough. Naturally they will blame Republicans as as they can - but a point will eventually be reached when this is no longer convincing to a sufficient number of voters to keep Democrats in office. We can gnash our teeth and complain about this, but it is basically the way the system works. Our impatience and fear cause us to play Chicken Little, but I think the republic will survive. We are simply dealing with an ignorant, spoiled, foolish electorate that will require some strong medicine to become healthy. Dr. Obama and his pals have cooked up just the tonic they need.

Republicans would be foolish to fall on their sword with respect to tax increases for the rich. Most of the rich live in blue counties carried by Obama. If their federal tax rates increase, they should consider relocating to States without income taxes.

25 % believe that going over the fiscal cliff would be
a " minor " problem.
7 % say going over the fiscal cliff would not cause any consequences.
" Fifty-six percent say taxes on the wealthy should be high, while 36 percent support low rates to help boost investment and job growth. "
The majority of Americans don´t care about the country.
Whether because of ignorance, disinterest , stupidity , selfishness , laziness , etc.
And that´s the biggest problem for the Republicans.

I never thought I would see Truth or Consequences become a reality TV series or that it would be on the air for the next 8 years! It will be very sad to see those who have played by the rules and done all the right things for their entire adult lives be ruined. Those of us still light enough on our financial feet and with good country neighbors, water, land and the ability to protect them will probably come out the other side ready and stronger patriots, but not all will nor can they at this stage in their lives. It is them and the generation to follow mine for which I feel worst. I can´t bring myself to call for a charge over the cliff.

We know this: McCain and Grahamnesty will make sure the talks do not fail. They will do whatever is necessary to go along with all of it. They may struggle briefly like a chicken going into the chute upside down, but when the knife is weilded, they peacefull surrender to the fuzzy warmth of the here after. Also one more thing. I have concluded that Fox News is the network of the Big Republican Establishment. What made me see the light is because guess who they have on every time some big event is making headlines. You guessed it McCain and Grahamnesty. Have they ever had on any Senator or Congressman that is straight up conservtive Tea Party when the issues are boiling over? Not hardly. They put up McCain over the weekend and he made it clear he will vote for Rice and he will go along with tax hikes. Perfect. I am not watching Fox News any more. From now on I will be watching deer and turkey hunting shows on the outdoor channels instead.

It is truly a Hollywood epic of biblical proportions, the original disaster story of the man chosen by God to undertake the greatest rescue in history before an apocalyptic flood engulfs the world. But even before it opens in America this week and Britain on April 4, Noah, a $130 million blockbuster with Russell Crowe in the lead role, is already awash in a turbulent sea of controversy. The film, packed with special effects based around a massive replica arc built in Long Island near New York, also stars Sir Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah and Emily Watson, the Harry Potter

Barack Obama takes his hard line on Russia to Europe this week and will see how far European allies are willing to go to stop Moscow from moving deeper into Ukraine after annexing Crimea. The US president will arrive in the Netherlands on Monday morning for talks with fellow leaders of the Group of Seven industrial democracies, when he will try to persuade them to increase pressure on Russia. It comes as Russian troops backed by helicopters stormed a Ukrainian naval base on the Crimea peninsula early on Monday, one of the few military facilities that was still flying a Ukrainian

Dougherty wrote: Conservatives in the GOP like to assail identity politics and tout their own ideology as one of color blindness. Sometimes this is stupidly marketed to black voters as a selling point for Republicans. "We don´t categorize you by race," brags a Republican.

WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton found him to be cold and worrisome, but predicted he would be a tough and able leader. George W. Bush wanted to make him a friend and partner in the war on terror, but grew disillusioned over time. Barack Obama tried working around him by building up his protégé in the Kremlin, an approach that worked for a time but steadily deteriorated to the point that relations between Russia and the United States are now at their worst point since the end of the Cold War. For 15 years, Vladimir V. Putin has confounded American presidents

Besides Hobby Lobby, there’s another business involved in the the landmark religious-protections case being argued before the Supreme Court this week: Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. But while Hobby Lobby founder David Green has etched a decidedly high profile in his faith-based opposition to the Obamacare mandate over offering the abortion pill in employee health plans, the Mennonites who own Conestoga have been absolutely mum with the national media.

There’s something that makes the current Supreme Court different from some of its recent predecessors. The justices got religion.

As the court this week weighs religious conviction vs. legal obligation in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act, those who study the court say the change is hard to quantify but easy to notice. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions

But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger.

Los Angeles — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it´s outrageous that the country is even debating the subject. Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
