Barack Obama, our next President

Bob Woodward is being threatened/"warned" by White House officials because of his outspokeness about this president's ineffective leadership.
On CNN, Woodward said a "very senior person" at the White House warned him in an email that he would "regret doing this," the same day he continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
Yeah except that the claims of a threat turn out to be a lie. That "very senior official" was in fact Gene Sperling who sent Woodward an email apologizing for raising his voice with him on a previous occasion. here's the part of the message that contains the "threat";
"But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim. The idea that the sequester was to force both sides to go back to try at a big or grand bargain with a mix of entitlements and revenues (even if there were serious disagreements on composition) was part of the DNA of the thing from the start."
In other words Sperling was advising his friend that he might want to hang his hat on something that wasn't actually factual and might come back to bite him in the azz later.

You are incorrect. It stopped being our government 4 years ago when it was usurped by the current administration and the 47% of losers in this country.
The fact that you believe that the Founding Fathers put their lives on the line to support the "government" shows what an idiot you are. They fought and supported the country not the government you imbecile.
There was no usurpation you vomitous cretin, it was an election where the majority of the voters made their choice. And yes it is our government, it belongs to all citizens whatever race, religion, sexual orientation or station of life. It does not belong to the ultra rich plutocrats that the GOP wants to turn it over to.
Also moron if you don't have a government, you don't have a country. This government was built by the Founding Fathers.
You're an idiot!

VOA News

March 01, 2013

U.S. President Barack Obama is due to meet at the White House Friday with top Republican and Democratic lawmakers to discuss a last-ditch effort to avoid across-the-board budget cuts scheduled to take effect before the day is over.

The meeting is largely viewed as symbolic, after dueling bills to avoid the cuts were defeated in the Senate Thursday, making $85 billion in automatic spending cuts appear inevitable once the Friday deadline passes.

President Obama has said the effects of the cuts on federal agencies - most notably defense, infrastructure spending, public schools and preschool care - will not be felt immediately, but instead will have what he calls a "tumble downward" effect. That means, the longer the cuts remain in place, the worse the damage they will cause.

Defense employees are expected to be forced to take unpaid time off work, while funding for big infrastructure projects will eventually halt.

States also would feel the effects, with fewer federal dollars coming in.

President Obama is blaming Republicans for the impasse, saying they voted to put the entire burden of deficit reduction on the middle class. Obama and many Democrats want to eliminate certain tax breaks for the wealthy to raise revenue along with spending cuts as a way to reduce the budget deficit.

Many Republicans oppose tax increases of any kind and want to focus solely on cutting spending. They accuse Democrats of exaggerating the impact of what is known as the sequester. The effects of the cuts may not be felt for several more weeks.
**********
President Barack Obama gave a New Year's gift to returning members of Congress, federal workers and Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday, signing an executive order calling for an end to a years-long pay freeze.

As of March 27, 2013, federal employees will see a half-percent to one percent pay increase, marking the end of a pay freeze that has been in place since late 2010. Congress hasn't seen a pay raise since 2009.

According to the order, Biden's pay will increase from $225,521 to $231,900 a year, before taxes. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will see his salary increased to $224,500 and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will take home an annual pay of $194,400 after his raise.

While Obama's order made no mention of merit for such a raise, HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reported on Friday that the 112th Congress is set to end the session as the most unproductive since the 1940s, with only 219 bills passed by the body becoming law. The raise won't take place until the 113th Congress, meaning that outgoing members will see no effect from the order.

Obama ordered the raise as he continues to negotiate unsuccessfully with congressional leaders to find a deal in order to avoid the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. If no agreement is met, over $500 billion in planned tax increases and spending cuts will be implemented.

HOW MUCH PROOF DO YOU NEED THAT OBAMA DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE WHO ARE PAYING ALL THE TAXES!!!!!!!!!!

Republican efforts to protect tax breaks for the wealthy will backfire in 2014. The anger created in the aftermath of the sequestration will play out at the voting booth. Obama isn't ever going to run for office again, lots of House Republicans will be though. Once again the loony right has been outsmarted by Obama!

Obama ran on the promise to force the wealthy to help row the boat, that's just what he's doing.
I'm loving the frantic panic from right wingers who can only sit and watch a strong president lead and not buckle under.

You're actually right on this one waxturd, sequestration was Obama's idea, that's my point. You spent all last night supporting it (just like your teabagger friends) and claiming it was Democrats that feared it. Not me, I think it's a great idea!
Sit back and watch as Obama plays this out and ends up with the revenue he is demanding. Some men have a set of balls. Unlike narcissistic cowards like you.

The GOP Can't Have it Both Ways on Sequestration

Doesn't this kind of talk contradict the story line that the sequester was all President Obama's idea (and therefore his fault?)

We asked him to commit to us that when the cuts actually came on March 1, that he would stand firm and not give in, and hes holding to that, said Representative Steve Scalise, Republican of Louisiana and chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee.I think Friday will be an important day that shows were finally willing to stand and fight for conservative principles and force Washington to start living within its means. And that will be a big victory.

Representative Mick Mulvaney, a South Carolina Republican who was elected on the 2010 Tea Party wave and has had his differences with the speaker, was similarly complimentary toward Mr. Boehner.

Hes doing exactly what he said he was going to do, and I think its working to our favor and to his, Mr. Mulvaney said.I get the feeling that our party is probably more unified right now than it has been at any time in the last several months.

If so many Republicans will go on record expressing approval of the sequester going into effect - even as the president emphatically urges negotiations to avert it - won't the party have to take responsibility for the sequester's effects? If popular, the GOP will get credit. But if not ...

Do you really believe that Obama will cave without getting revenue? He isn't "trying to panic the country", he's keeping a promise to have a budget that EVERY economist agrees needs both cuts and revenue. You have to watch something besides FOX to ever escape your fantasy world. Are you loving being uninformed?
