Obama public relations effort
aims to avoid ‘fiscal cliff’

Washington Post, by David Nakamura and Zachary A. Goldfarb

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/27/2012 10:33:36 PM

The White House signaled Tuesday that it will attempt to marshal the momentum from President Obama’s reelection triumph into another victory at the negotiating table, launching a full-fledged public relations effort to avoid a “fiscal cliff” that could jolt the nation back toward recession. Administration officials said Obama will hit the road for a campaign-style series of events this week with ordinary Americans, including a visit to a toy manufacturer in suburban Philadelphia on Friday. That trip and others will be aimed at increasing pressure

Did you listen to Krauthammer today. He thinks Obama is NOT interested in the fiscal cliff - he wants to destroy the republicans. Soooo republicans - don´t cave!!!

Obama wanted this crisis - he wanted everything to wait until after the election. This is his crisis. If he wants to go over the clifff - do it! Nov ´14 is light years away. The pubbies need to hire some GOOD PR people and counter Obama´s narrative.

Public relations is a very long way from leadership. He created this problem by failing to lead for 4 years. The Republicans would be well advised to wait for him to propose a detailed plan with buy-in from Senate Democrats. My guess is that it isn´t coming. The screams in January when the tax credit checks stop will be deafening.

Obama isn´t doing anything other than the script he was born with. The Republicans, and every US citizen for that matter, had better wake up to the fact this isn´t public relations or politics as we have known it. This is raw power and Obama is going to use it. They are going to cram their Marxist crap as far down our throats as they can. The Republicans should take off the gloves and tell their constituents the truth. They´re not even going to have a filibuster and the rules are out the window. This administration and the Muslim Brotherhood are two of a kind. Watch and see.

The "Keating 5" scandal yielded the following:

"Of course I {Charles Keating} thought my $1.6 million would buy me influence {to Senators}."

Taxes are access and influence. Without a voice {TAX} to the government, why should you be heard?

A call for fewer tax payers is a call to move from a Republic and move to FASCIST AUTOCRACY!

Welcome to the Cliff, lemmings!

Whatever happened to "The President proposes, Congress disposes"?

The POTUS should be pressured to propose HIS OWN solutions first, then let Congress mess with it.

We are making the mistake of allowing the Democrats to place the onus on the GOP to come up with solutions. It´s not their job. Obama won. It´s his mess. He should propose a solution(s) and then the GOP can decide if it´s good or bad.

Why does the GOP permit itself to be pressured to come up with the first salvo? This is why we lose elections, because we cave to pressure. We´re going to get blamed anyway, so why not just let the Democrats deal with the mess THEY created?

After having thought this over, i say make Obama own this. Give him the tax increase. It won´t solve anything so what will he say then?

You need to get on the airwaves with a major primetime speech and tell the public that after careful consideration, you are going to give Obama EVERYTHING he wants. EVERYTHING. Make it VERY public, as a sort of shock and awe, Come from a power stance not a defeated stance because in actuality you will be the winner in the long run with this. And be sure to inform the talking heads what you are doing.

Do NOT save the democrats from themselves. Give them the full Monty.

You are going to be demonized whether we go over the cliff or not. When it doesnt work you can say, we tried it his way. It didnt work. Many are experiencing the effects of Obamacare personally now. Obama will NOT be popular in 2014. Make him own it.

The Brilliant Republicans and talking heads go on for hours with every bit of minutia that frames their thinking. The Dems do sound bites and slogans and repetition. Can we get a lesson? Being kinder was Bush´s plan and then spend like the Dems. They still hated him. So, the press and the Dems who want power not congeniality, will do the same. Wake up. Repeat and repeat and show a graphic that shows taking it from the rich, taking all of it, does not fund past a few months or at the most, 1 yr. So, repeat, it is because the govt spends too much not that it does not tax enough, which causes the problem. Simple. It gets through to everyone with a family budget except those who are generational dependents, aka slaves to the govt. Are we done with slavery? Can we be? Please?

The GOP just lost a-n-o-t-h-e-r election that was their`s for the taking. They couldn`t beat a failed marxist and somehow people still believe the GOP can out maneuver Obama and the Dems? Get real.

Obie just performed his fiscal cliff fandango in front of a backdrop of the weirdest assemblage of "middle class" persons ever. The man on his left looked like an Indian Jerry Colonna with a beard and he kept looking Obie up and down, reading his teleprompter or notes, and generally looking dorky throughout the show. Too funny - if it wasn´t our preezy, The Hopeless Won.

It´s a bit late to expect Republicans to save us all. It was our job to turn out enouh voters to save our republic. We did not do it. A lot of people stood on principle congratulating themselves for their integrity. Romney was not exactly what they wanted. Too bad for them and for the rest of us. You reap what you sow. Whatever faults the GOP had or Romney had we should have overlooked. When God referred to the Jews saying that "my people are a stiff necked people" he could have been speaking of Christians as well. There weer enough of us. We did not show up.

I think that the only way we can answer is to say "BALANCE THE BUDGET". This namby-pamby incremental junk doesn´t sell.

Put 0bama´s spending and the tax increase side by side. His tax increase would only fund 8 days of his spending. Who can answer this crook?

0 will not offer a solution to the "fiscal cliff" problem because he and his puppeteers and Dem cronies created this problem deliberately over the years by forcing banks to fund mortgages to unqualified (mostly minority "buyers"), by creating the Sept. 11-15, 2008 "financial crisis", by blowing the $700+++ bailout money, and by giving away more and more of our taxes to the takers.

Obama and Jarrett should share equal blame as "co-presidents."

Every time I see Republican leaders on Fox they are saying they are waiting to see Obama´s plan for cuts. IMO they are trying to put the responsibility on Obama. I agree we ought to let the Dems do whatever they are going to do IF we do not get large cuts in spending. THEY need to reap what THEY sow, not the GOP.

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

The Supreme Court searched Tuesday for ways to let women get birth control without the government forcing their employers to cover the cost, as justices tried to balance business owners’ religious rights against allowing religious objections to a broad range of public policy issues. Justices touched on abortion, the limits of federal power and details of birth control, but the case centering on the Hobby Lobby craft store chain likely will come down to whether the court believes for-profit companies and their owners can claim a moral conscience objection to paying for employees’ birth control. The court’s liberal members —

The Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration will give extra time to Americans who say they are unable to enroll in health-care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline. According to the Post, consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension. To take advantage of this extension, consumers need only check a box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline.

That seems like a sensible way to think about the freedom of religion case just argued before the Supreme Court: whether employers can be required to pay for contraceptive methods that would violate their religious convictions. Most disputes about religious freedom are bilateral — with the government on one side and the individual claiming infringement of religious liberty on the other.

The Supreme Court seemed divided Tuesday over whether the religious objections of business owners protect them from a requirement in President Obama’s Affordable Care Act that health insurance plans cover all types of contraceptives. With both spring snow and demonstrators gathering on the sidewalk outside, the justices spent a spirited 90 minutes ­debating religious conviction, equal treatment for female workers and whether the court would be opening the door for religious challenges to all sorts of government regulation. It is difficult to predict a precise outcome based on the justices’ wide-ranging questions and statements.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
