Hannity Panel Explodes Over
Who’s Being More Inflexible
On Fiscal Cliff

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2012 10:52:20 AM

On Sean Hannity‘s show tonight, Juan Williams and David Limbaugh faced off over the fiscal cliff negotiations and who is being more inflexible and unwilling to compromise. Limbaugh and Hannity said President Obama is being the more stubborn one, while Williams found it amazing that anyone could think the Republicans are being anything but inflexible on the deal. (Snip) Limbaugh criticized Obama for posturing rather than negotiating, saying that the “real fiscal cliff is national bankruptcy” and the first cliff is “preferable” to accepting any deal offered by the president. He said Obama is the real villain

Comments:
Juan Williams will never agree with anything a Republican has to say, especially when it comes to his messiah 0bama. Have your blood pressure meds handy for this one.

Actually, Williams states the liberal POV without being nearly as obnoxious as the other spokespersons: Matthews, Maddow, etc.

Why in God´s name, is no one asking about the "fairness" of almost half the country paying NO taxes? Want fairness? FAIRTAX!

Apart from the fact it was Hannity´s show, the sparks flew between David Limbaugh and Juan Williams - for once Juan was forced into revealing what he is, a big lib talking point. Limbaugh was impassioned, there was no way Hannity could inject himself into the action, except to call time for the commercial break. .

1a. Juan is desperately trying to get back in the good graces of the Left.
1b. If Juan was a white guy from, say, Lincoln, Nebraska, named Fred James, wanna guess how different his audience and paycheck would be? Count your blessings, Juan.
2. Hannity never struck me as: a. especially smart; b. well-educated; or c. a disciplined, rigorous thinker. But he makes a bundle off other attributes. Then so do the Kardashians.
3. David Limbaugh often does good work in his columns.
4. The "cliff" was constructed by pols of both parties. It´s entirely artificial.
5. No matter what either side does or doesn´t do, Rs will be blamed for all real or imagined negatives. So please, forget the pipe dream of "Let it happen, Obama and the Dems will get the blams." OK?
6. "Flexibility" [another term for the slobberingly-courted "collegiality" so loved in DC] isn´t a goal. Doing what´s right should be the objective. [SIGH.]
7. I´m gonna need to up my target for chicken-feather-production, I can see....

Williams made up his mind not to become an Andrew Sullivan in the world of liberals. He was pretty balanced in his views when he was just a FNC contributor. But with his full time gig he is under much pressure to carry the liberal line on FNC....or else! Andrew Sullivan couldn´t take it anymore being a conservative gay guy. He finally collapsed into a fire breathing liberal. Allen Colmes of HAnnity and Colmes fame gave it up rather than be humiliated nightly trying to defend the liberal agenda in front of real conservatives.

Liberals take their pound of flesh on those commentators who refuse to tow the leftist line. Williams has decided to lay down from the start and get his invites to the right parties and avoid becoming a pariah in liberal DC.

HHS outlines policy
changes to lift insurers
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/14/2014 8:50:21 PM     Post Reply
Federal health officials dropped regulations late Friday outlining how they plan to help insurance companies stuck with unanticipated costs due to ObamaCare´s botched rollout. In a 279-page document, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) detailed adjustments to the healthcare law´s "risk corridors" program, a means for shifting money from insurers who fare better under the new system to those who fare worse. Risk corridors have been decried by conservatives as a bailout that could leave taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars. The administration said Friday that it will implement the program in a budget

The U.S. government on Friday announced it is taking steps to relinquish control over the back end of the Internet. The Department of Commerce announced it is beginning a process to transfer control over the technical system that operates the Internet’s domain name system, which ensures that Internet users can get to the websites they’re looking for. Currently, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration — an agency with Commerce — oversees that technical system, named the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). Historically, it has contracted the operation of IANA out to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) on a biennial

Former McCain Adviser Nicolle Wallace
Trashes Sarah Palin on ´The View´

Nicolle Wallace, former adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 presidential campaign who worked with Steve Schmidt, appeared on The View on Thursday and gushed over Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and even Bill Clinton. Predictably, however, she trashed Sarah Palin. Wallace has tried to blame Palin for the incompetence she and the McCain team displayed during the 2008 campaign against then-Senator Barack Obama. The program played a clip from Game Change, which has been called out for numerous lies and inaccuracies, that allowed Wallace to whack Palin as someone who had a "gap in her knowledge" about issues. She didn´t mention that

Everyone in politics knows that big GOP donors, many of whom are wealthy businessmen, are, broadly speaking, one of the key constituencies for a major amnesty bill. But aside from the money trail, their interactions with lawmakers, which often occur at intimate closed-door fundraisers, can be hard to track. Enter Michael Simmonds, a restaurant entrepreneur in Omaha and a lifelong donor to Republican candidates in Nebraska. Simmonds has launched a behind-the-scenes crusade to push the candidates he´s supporting to back what he describes as “complete amnesty.” “I am applying a litmus test even it keeps me from supporting any

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has penned a personal, scathing letter to his Democratic counterpart on the House oversight committee, escalating the public feud between the two high-ranking lawmakers amid the committee´s investigation into IRS targeting. The letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., top Democrat on that committee, was obtained by Fox News. In it, Issa countered, point by point, a series of claims that Cummings and two legal experts made earlier this week about whether former IRS official Lois Lerner could be held in contempt for refusing to testify. Issa went further, effectively accusing Cummings of running

WASHINGTON — A deep-pocketed group of Republican donors and former GOP lawmakers is joining a gay rights coalition to push the U.S. House to vote on a bill banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. "America is a place where the freedom to be who you are shouldn´t be a barrier to your ability to get a job and provide for your family," said Paul Singer, a billionaire hedge fund founder and big Republican donor. Singer is putting $375,000 toward the push for passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. "In the workplace, employees should be judged on their

The only reason to think President Obama would work with a Republican congressional majority is that he genuinely believes a policy is a good idea or thinks public opinion requires a compromise necessary to protect his legacy and keep the White House in Democratic hands. In other words, Republicans have reason to hope, but they shouldn’t expect too much change—at least not until 2017. McConnell’s assessment of what Republicans can accomplish the next two years will strike his fans as Madisonian realism, but it will come across as establishmentarian weakness to his detractors who are now waging a bitter primary

The pitifully goofy notion of addressing racism — somehow — by bringing back the separate-but-equal doctrine keeps popping up at colleges and universities. The latest incident occurred last week at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Wash., reports Seattle-area NBC affiliate KING-TV. Staffers in the Diversity and Equity Center sent an invitation to all 300 employees of the taxpayer-funded school concerning a happy hour intended to “build support and community” for “people of color.” The invitation stated in no uncertain terms that white people could not attend. It instructed recipients with the right skin colors to reply seeking the

Season two of VICE begins tonight on HBO and to mark the occasion, VICE Media co-founder Shane Smith shared some harsh words about traditional cable news with the New York Daily News. “CNN is a disaster. It’s spiraling into s***,” he said in an interview. “They are trying to young it down, but everything they do is a f*****g disaster. But what’s bad for CNN is good for me.” That’s because Vice is trying to move into the territory that has been historically dominated by TV networks like CNN.

President Obama met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in the Oval Office last night to discuss how to move forward on immigration reform, with one caucus member saying afterward that their pleas for executive action were heard. The meeting came after Obama threatened to veto two bills that passed in the House – the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014, which puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of Congress to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws, and the Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014, which expands the number

CIA director John Brennan is at it again—equivocating over the nature of jihad by evoking paradigms familiar to the West. Last Tuesday, “during an event at the Council of Foreign Relations, Brennan was asked about the ‘war of ideas’ surrounding Islam, which the questioner said many Americans tend to equate with violence.” The CIA chief responded by saying that al-Qaeda’s ideology is “a perverse and very corrupt interpretation of the Qur’an”; that “al-Qaeda has hijacked” Islam; that “they have really distorted the teachings of Muhammad.” Even so, “that ideology, that agenda of al-Qaeda,” confirmed Brennan, “has gained resonance and following in many

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained.

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans."

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
