Obama changes tune on budget
Washington Times, by Susan Crabtree

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/5/2012 10:41:11 PM

While he now demands that higher tax rates for the wealthy must be part of a “fiscal cliff” deal, President Obama took a very different line just over a year ago in the last major clash with Congress over a long-term budget deal. In comments Republicans on Capitol Hill are highlighting, Mr. Obama argued in the summer of 2011 that the government could raise more than $1 trillion in revenue without increasing tax rates paid by the rich — something the president now contends is mathematically impossible. “What we said was, give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues
Byline corrected.

So, the pols intentionally, knowingly, set up a huge disaster roaring down the road at us. One that would wreck just about everything. Gut the military. Lead to yet another debt downgrade. A huge disaster so hugely bad that, hey, there´s just absolutely n-o-o-o-o possible way ever, no Stanley-Cup-Finals-in-Hell-way, that they´d ever, ever, ever, ever, ever let it get to that.

And which is now a couple weeks of more pointless posturing away.

“Let’s broaden the base, let’s reduce the rate,” Jarrett said at a Bloomberg breakfast at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. “That means we are going to close some loopholes, but that’s going to benefit the broader business community.”

From September 4th of this year. Let´s reduce the rates. Valerie Jarrett said it 90 days ago. I can´t take another 4 years of this.

They will do very well if all that opposes them are the current crop of stupid, unprincipled, cowardly Republicans. What do Republicans stand for? The answer is "absolutely nothing." They give us mushy, stand-for-nothing presidential candidates and then wonder why they lose. Republicans still have the House; use it or lose it too.

If Obama said something was possible then but impossible now, it´s not because he is stupid or because he is lying, it´s because he is omniscient. We know this because his court eunuch´s say so, and they too are omniscient.

Has anyone noticed the lack of coverage of Greece, Spain, etc and how they´re dealing with their fiscal cliff/fiancial crisis? I hear reports of businessmen rummaging through garbage for food, etc, but no pictures.

So I guess to the "average American", aka the idiots who voted for Obama, Europe is doing just swell and all this talk of doom and gloom is nothing. So why worry?

The higher rates Obama demands will be at best a drop in the bucket compared to his spending. He only wants this because he knows that it will be political suicide for the republicans who go along. He is pushing the GOP to betray it´s own base and they are signalling that they will comply! Just imagine if republicans demanded Obama cut support for all dependents on government 10% and betray his base. Would Obama agree to cut his own political throat? You all know the answer to that!

Face it... as long as you keep raising the debt ceiling, Obama doesn´t need a budget from Congress to keep spending money. If they go over the so called fiscal cliff, they own the problem, not Republicans.

I wish I was privy to the discussions that Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the leadership are having like everyone
else here apparently is.
Limbaugh and Levin must have special listening devices
and mind reading skills because
they cannot stop trashing Republicans for making deals
that haven´t been made .
The radio big mouths should stop running their mouths
and run for office .
Or form a third party that makes them happy instead of complaining about Republicans 24 /7
like they have been doing for decades.
McConnell´s move yesterday should have gotten
great applause from the complainers , but, it won´t .
Sometimes I think Obama is a total moron
who has no idea what is going on and is content to frolic with his boyfriends and play golf, while others play
the role of Commander in Chief and POTUS.
Other times I believe the guy is a devious , hate filled , anti American maniac who is doing everything possible to destroy the military , our economy and our way of life.
Most likely both scenarios are true.

#6 is right. Any remnants of the Bush tax rates will expire in just over a year. Closing of loopholes, eliminating deductions, etc will last forever. Far better to go over the cliff and force everyone to pay higher taxes. Obama´s base is going to complain the loudest when the extensions on tax credits, the Payroll Tax Holiday, and the progressive nature of the Bush tax rates disappear. Think of Council women in Detroit. Think of all the ´boyfriends´ who complained when the tax credit checks got delayed during the last debt limit deal fell through.

I am frothing at my mouth: why the conservatives don´t build our own mainstream media???
Everybody on the left understands the power of propaganda - commies and fascists alike had tons of theoretical books written on that issue. Marx, lenin, hitler, chavez, castro know that, but our repubics DON´T!
We will never be able to win anything just because the lefties run things absolutely without conservatives countering them.
They dis anything offered by repubics, lie about it, and American public gobbles it up like all the sheeple do!
Also, conservative mainstream media could expose the rinos for what damage they do to the country being only concerned about clinging to whatever power is left to them by the leftist commies.
Un-f-believable!

Yes, # 20! This is what´s needed! I posted about it yesterday. Set up their own cable station to explain conservative principles, buy a lot of prime time, really promote a conservative magazine, and online, buy a newpaper, buy huge shares of a mainstream media news outfit, so many of these things they could do. Because they need to do a lot of explaining and teaching, and they are blocked in the regular media.

Also, #18, think about this: do you think that the lefties are concerned about ideology? Look at the leftist totalitarian countries - where there is ideology, in n.korea, venezuela, cuba, vietnam, russia, ukraine? They don´t care about masses, never were, the only thing they care about is power. What they do with it is different matter. In our country they want to destroy the opposition, any free thinking people (in our case independent middle class). And they use all the propaganda they can - because they have mainstream media! (look at my previous post #20).

#20 -- Doing nothing to resist the Left´s strangle-hold on the mainstream media offers little hope for improving the credibility of their reporting. But fighting propaganda with counter-propaganda will bring about truth about as effectively as fighting chaos with more chaos will restore order.

For almost 20 years, talk radio HAS BEEN the right´s own ´mainstream media´. Has that brought about any reform or balance to the Leftstream Media?

#24, AM radio is a lot smaller than we think. It is a choir, just like this site. That´s no fault of either, it´s just the fact that liberals are either lazy or they camp out at their sites like PBS, etc. It sure would have been nice to have a counter CNN around the same time ONE man, Ted Turner, started his ´most trusted news´ network, but we didn´t. Now we can´t even mount a show to combat the daily insanity of ´The Daily Show.´

I hope The Blaze can grow, I hope the kid with the camcorder does more muckraking and it would be nice if a few in Hollywood followed Leno´s change of heart and explained Obama´s moves to their audiences, but that still leaves the entire education system and just about every polling place.

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
