Krauthammer advises GOP to
take Obama to the fiscal cliff with
threat of ‘second recession’ [Video]

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/28/2012 10:20:05 PM

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel that the GOP would be foolish to accept Obama’s proposed framework for handling the fiscal cliff. “Look, Obama never offered anything in public about entitlement,” Krauthammer said. “He always says he wants a discussion. And now he says after the Republicans give up their one issue on taxes, ‘I’ll discuss a bargain next year.’ Of course he wants that, because that’ll be at a time when the Republicans are defrocked, disrobed and disarmed. They will have nothing to bargain

Comments:
You know the Republicans will never call his bluff and have the spine to do this. 0bama, together with his undying supporters in the media, will crucify the Republicans, even though 0bama would be the cause of it all.

OP, yes, and that really depresses us the most, doesn´t it. Our side will lose as long as they are more afraid of being blamed than doing what is best for the country, come hell or high water.

It´s cute that Charles really believes that Obama´s idea of a ´successful´ second term would reflect the traditional definition of success.

I´m still somewhat down by November 6. By whatever means, Obama indeed "defrocked, disrobed and disarmed" us on that date. He´s, at least think he has, got us by the short ones. Opposition is in disarray. But, we must carry on somehow.

Right. Just what the Repugs need, more bad publicity to go along with their already tarnished brand.

Charles needs to understand that the bubble he has lived and played in no longer exists. 0bama, Reid and Pelosi are not the Democrats that he is used to dealing with.

Obama has tried to couch the debate such that the GOP gets pressured to give in. But if we go over the cliff, I think that angry folks who lose their jobs and all those who pay higher taxes are going to blame government in general. The OWS fizzle shows that the American people aren´t ready for a socialist uprising. He loses most if people are only angry at federal government and not state government led by GOP governors. Then there indeed might be an uprising but to restore limited government. Only if government fails can we shrink them back down to size.

I recommend we take the dive off the fiscal cliff. This is the only way to get the mandatory domestic spending cuts. Once off the cliff the House (because that is where all budget matters must originate) pass a permanent tax relief bill reinstating the Bush Tax rates. Let Obama and the Democrats vote against middle class tax relief, good for 2014. Then, pass a second bill to relieve the military of 1/2 the mandatory budget cuts. Let Obama and the Democrats vote against supporting our military during a time of war. Another winning issue for 2014. I sure hope someone in the GOP Leadership reads Lucianne. This is a no brainer...the only way we the people will get the domestic spending cuts.

A Democratic congressional candidate who has promised "war" on Fox News, the Tea Party, the NRA and "other trash" went ´On the Record´ with Greta Van Susteren tonight to explain his threat. "Why do you hate me?" Greta Van Susteren asked Virginia candidate Mike Dickinson. Dickinson is challenging Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.). "I have a problem with all of Fox News," Dickinson replied.

Todd Starnes, you are the gift that keeps on giving. For the uninitiated, Starnes is a Fox News commentator and resident “War on Christianity” huckster. If there’s a story involving foreigners, religion, sports, sex, or pretty much anything, you can bet Starnes will somehow show up (on Fox’s web and TV properties or on his delightfully terrible Twitter account) to try and scare fellow evangelicals into believing there’s a war on lowly ol’ Christian American folks being waged either by Muslims, atheists, “seculars,” Hollywood libruls, or “the homosexual agenda.” His shtick can easily be summed up by the titles of his two

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

A woman was taken into federal custody Thursday after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton as the former Secretary of State began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech. The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort. Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped. Many in the audience of more than 1,000 people in a large ballroom laughed and applauded as Clinton resumed her

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Kim Kardashian might be one of the sexiest, wealthiest celebrities around but when it comes to the political arena not everyone is a fan it seems. It´s now come to light that the 33-year-old reality star´s offer to help President Obama in his 2012 campaign for re-election was reportedly met with firm resistance. Kim was said to have approached the president numerous times and act as his ´surrogate´ but Obama and his advisers apparently turned her down, according to RadarOnline. ´They wanted nothing to do with her,´ a source told Radar. ´She was not the young, cool image they wanted

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

The progressive march to the future is destroying America. What the Democrats and the progressives are doing behind the scenes is a more frightening and unjustified power grab than Putin´s on the Ukraine. I have been silent the last couple of years because my politics are not in goose step with most of Hollywood. For that matter it is not in step with the GOP, either.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
