It´s Time To Turn the Tables
on this Presidential Bully

Creators Syndicate, by David Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2012 11:57:31 AM

Something is very wrong in the world when the most dogmatic and inflexible president in recent memory can make unreasonable demands of his GOP budget opponents and yet be confident they´ll be blamed for the impasse. It is past time Barack Obama be held accountable for his intentionally irresponsible fiscal policies that are guaranteed to take us into national bankruptcy. It is outrageous enough that he is steering us into insolvency, but it is unbearable that he´s fraudulently blaming the Republican Party for it to boot. This is not a close call, and reasonable people,

Comments:
If only Boehner would listen. I´m not holding my breath.

What makes you think Boehner opposes the President? Look at his actions not his words.

First, Boehner won´t do it.

Second, the biased LSM will distort or not cover the message if he did. He is fighting two opponent groups, not one.

Politically, he should allow a bill to extend the Bush rates for those under $250K and implementing what NerØbama campaigned on to come to a vote, and have the Pubs vote "present" to deny the Dems political cover.

On principle, oppose any of the new demands that have been put on the table by Geithner.

For the country, block any more increases in the debt limit, any more quantitative easing by the Fed, and any more continuing resolutions. Force the Dems to come up with a balanced budget - right now. The spending cuts will follow.

If you´re going to be the bad guys, then just do it and fix the country.

It´ll never happen. We all know Boehner will cave.

It´s time to call Obama´s bluff. Stop negotiating until significant spending cuts are on the table.

Republicans need to redefine the cliff:

The House needs to pass a First-Quarter Budget with across-the-boars Spending Cuts and a lower Flat Tax now.

If the Senate and Obama fail to agree, they own the consequences.

Friend he OWNS the propaganda media, it does not make even a small difference what the Republicans do, they will be blamed for all of the incompetent administrations stupidity and errors. The media will play the "What if game" and the conservatives will always be wrong to them.

Someday we may get a honest media, but that is at least 2 or 3 decades away, because it will only happen after the current crop of liberal kool-aid drinker retire or die.
The media no longer understand the idea of integrity and so their credibility is not a factor in their decision process.

John21: The House needs to create its OWN media.

Republicans need to redefine the cliff with a Conservative Probationary Solution:
Quarterly Budgeting Hammer and Quarterly Debt Ceiling Anvil

The House needs to pass a First-Quarter Budget with across-the-board Spending Cuts and a lower Flat Tax now.

If the Senate and Obama fail to agree, they own the consequences.

They will have to cave either before or after going over the cliff of their own making.

Once it passes, repeat for Next-Quarter Budget with more Spending Cuts Nd reduced Capital Gains Tax to spur investment in Private Sector Jobs.

Repeat approach for Quarterly Debt Ceiling Increases to cover "Overspending", authorizing ONLY increases equal to the already-achieved 4-to1 Spending Reductions compared to prior-year spending for the same Quarter. The Federal Reserve can expand the Money Supply to cover the Overspending Balance.

Televise a Quarterly House Review of Obama´s Spending-Cut Performance, highlighting Waste, Fraud and Abuse (WFA) examples of why Spending Cuts need to continue as long as Obama fails to eliminate WFA.

I am so tired of reading posts that claim that if we give Obama everything he wants we won´t be blamed for the inevitable disaster. This all started as a knee jerk reaction to the election loss. Who believes that facts and logic will every penetrate the thick skull of Obama supporters such as the Obama phone woman. We will always get the blame when the population is so poorly educated and motivated by envy and jealousy. Obama has control of the mindless mob. Why not disrupt Obama plans completely by holding fast on the debt ceiling and force him to cut the handouts. This is the only lever left and it should be used.

Boehner has put himself into a lose-lose situation. He needs to go on national TV and state he will do nothing until the leader of the nation leads. If he goes along with tax hikes, no matter what the form, the TEA (taxed enough already) PARTY will make sure all who cave will have opposition in 2014. If this means the end of the party; so what? If the Republicans will not stand on principle they need to go.

You have to figure that Obama believes that he has the wimpy Republicans by the short hairs and is not about to let go.

The Republicans should not vote for any liberal Democrat tax boost that will serve up the liberal Democrats political cover and the ability to blame the Republicans when the liberal Democrat initiative itself goes off a fiscal cliff, and the liberal Democrats come back and claim that it is time to raise up middle class tax rates as they surely will.

Howard Dean already let the cat out of the bag. Taxes are going up on everybody and all those who were ready to gouge the "rich" will suffer. Obama wants to tax everybody and that is why he doubled up his demands after the election to send the nation over the cliff. Anyone who doesn´t understand this now never will. They are blinded by envy and jealousy into acting against their own best interests.

Is Boehner of the OLD fossilized GOP school if he thinks a compromize regarding this core principle of Liberty in America will satisfy the hungry dragon of statitism which is stalking the land, or is he not? We will soon see if indeed he is a champion for Liberty or just another statist beltway pol.

David Limbaugh is exactly right to demand accountibility for the odeous results of the dems´ statist policies which have been UNQUESTIONABLY harming the USA every which way since the 1960´s militants became tenured.

Boehner has been AWOL in action for four years!

Every year, the House has done its´ Constitutional duty and passed a spending bill, all spending must originate with the House.

Every year, Dirty Harry Reid has failed to allow those bills to even go to the floor of the Senate for a vote.

Every year, Boehner should have been going to every possible talk show to decry the do-nothing Senate that put us so "near the fiscal cliff" and failed to do its´ Constitutional duty and pass a budget bill.

That Boehner did not go to the media and complain about Reid and 0bama is a travesty, he should not be removing committee members, he should be removed from his leadership position.

Well-written by David Limbaugh.

As comments here have noted, Bamster owns the corrupt lying media.

"Going over the fiscal cliff" is for wimps.

Instead, simply no longer raise the debt ceiling.

The ensuing catastrophe will finish off Obama.
It cannot be spun.
The media ho´s will try...
But... Bamster spends too much.
No raising of debt ceiling... and...
Bamster cannot wildly spend...
He hits the wall as everything tanks.

Bamster will own the catastrophe at last.
It´s perfectly reasonable to simply not allow more borrowing... more deficit making..
more idiotic wild spending.

Put your feet down and let Bammy hit the wall.
He will not know what to do, trust me.

It cannot be spun. He overspent. Obvious.
The liars will no longer be able to cover for him.
We will have a catastrophe...
and Bamster will own it.
Just what he deserves.

They say the two happiest days of your life are...
the day you buy a boat...
and the day you sell it.

Bammy has made history...
Our first black radical nut job president...
and our last one, too.
"Buh-Bye!!"

I certainly agree that it is time to turn the tables. Unfortunately America does not have an organization that is capable of accomplishing that task. What we have is an opposing party that co-opts and kills off any group that threatens to become capable of turning the tables. As long as the GOP exists, the tables will stay right where they are.

In a speech outside the Supreme Court after Wednesday´s "McCutcheon v. FEC" decision striking down a cap on the total amount an individual can contribute to federal candidates, Rep.

On a politically focused trip aimed at revving up his base and raising cash, President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged supporters to help Democrats keep control of the U.S. Senate and declared this year to be his last campaign. Buoyed by good news over his signature healthcare program, Obama touted proposals to raise the minimum wage and spur job creation that have little chance of passage in Congress during a rally with students in Michigan. Later at a fundraiser in Chicago he underscored Democratic worries about their political vulnerabilities in the Senate and House of Representatives in November congressional elections.

A House committee will meet next week to consider whether to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa announced Thursday. The former IRS official has twice appeared before Congress, and twice invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions, regarding the IRS targeting scandal. But Republicans argue she waived that right -- and have scheduled a meeting of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on April 10 to weigh contempt. They say she played a key role in the agency´s practice of singling out conservative groups seeking non-profit status for extra scrutiny.

In writing about the IRS’s proposed effort to silence conservatives through new regulations on 501(c)(4) organizations, we noted the enormous number of public comments being submitted in response to the regs. In the end, the number of comments exceeded 150,000. I don’t know whether the criticisms have been heard by the IRS but their weight has been felt. Today IRS Commissioner Koskinen told an audience at the National Press Club that his agency is unlikely to finalize the proposed regulations this year.

Millions of individuals who recently entrusted personal, medical, and financial information to the federal government while enrolling in Obamacare via Healthcare.gov may find a recent trend reported by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) rather unsettling. The number of security breaches involving Personally Identifiable Information (PII) at federal agencies more than doubled in recent years, increasing from 10,481 in 2009 to 25,566 in 2013. Perhaps even more disturbing, the GOA found that "none of the seven agencies [in a related study] consistently documented lessons learned from PII breaches."

The Obama administration on Thursday announced that it was updating Medicare rules to allow partners in same-sex marriages to apply for benefits during special enrollment periods. The Department of Health and Human Services said that the Social Security Administration would now be able to take applications for special enrollment periods for Medicare Part A and Part B and reduce late penalties for some eligible same-sex couples. The move is the latest step taken by HHS after the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as a union between one man

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs predicted on Wednesday that the Obama administration would scrap the employer mandate, which has already been delayed twice. “I don´t think the employer mandate will go into effect. It´s a small part of the law. I think it will be one of the first things to go,” Gibbs, President Obama´s former top spokesman, said at the Benefits Selling Expo in Colorado Springs, Colo. Earlier this year, the administration delayed the employer mandate for a second time, giving companies with between 50 and 99 employees until 2016 to offer insurance coverage to their workers or pay

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since.

Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
