House GOP warns Obama to think twice on tax hikes

House Republicans are sending a stark message to the White House: If President Barack Obama pushes for tax increases during the lame-duck session, it would ruin his chances for a productive second term.

Republicans aren’t conceding that Obama will win Tuesday, but they’re warning that allowing tax rates on high-income Americans to increase at the end of the year — as Obama and Hill Democrats have proposed — will set a bad tone that would complicate major deal making in the 113th Congress.

“Poisoning the well right out of the gate makes no sense if the goal is a productive second term,” said one senior House GOP leadership aide.

The warning shows that Republicans are in a defensive posture already regarding the impending negotiations over taxes and spending that loom during the lame duck. And they fear Obama would use his reelection to justify an upper income tax increase.

“Is that all you've got?”

I've been a bit disappointed that he was so insistent on being bipartisan with a group whose hidebound, parasitic existence was totally focused on making him a one-term president--the hell with the country. Did your taxes go up? Did your insurance have to start paying for college kids, pre-existing conditions, and wellness tests? You're thanking Paul Ryan for that?
When you can show me the red print version of Jesus condemning homosexuality and abortion, I might be more willing to accept your version of the brown, homeless guy that hung out with lepers and hookers and was opposed to public prayer...
Want to know what Mittler R'Money believes?
I looked it up and found that Jesus said that a man was to have only one wife and that they should "become as one flesh". That was his definition of marriage; one man and one woman, together (Mt 19:3-9). And he condemned the abortion version of murder in Matthew 15:19-20 by saying, "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts (reasonings/rationalizations), murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man." To kill an unborn baby for the sake of convenience alone and/or as a form of birth control is an evil rationalization of a selfish person.

You know it has to be one of the worst situations imaginable to have a president nobody even knows what his name is.

Hey, no, Silver Springs is part of the Silver River and has been a tourist attraction here in Ocala for many years. It's about 2 miles from our house. They are famous for their glass bottom boats and have a large zoo, shops, rides, and during the summer they have concerts out there too. Right next to it is a water park. It's totally beautiful and you should plan on seeing it soon.
I don't play golf, I remember we had a section on golf in PE in high school and it seemed complicated just to get your hands wrapped around the club right...LOL!

500 Generals, Admirals Support Romney

Continuing a trend among military members who have serious concerns about President ObamaÂ’s tenure as commander-in-chief, over 500 former generals and admirals from all branches of the military have publicly came out in support of Romney.

The admirals and generals announced their support for Republican challenger Mitt Romney in a full page ad they purchased which ran in the Washington Times. Among the generals on the list are Gen. Tommy Franks and Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway.

Franks was the commander of the U.S. Central Command who oversaw the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan following the attacks by Muslim terrorists on September 11 as well as the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Greeley CO community newspaper? Reputable? I don't believe 500 admirals and generals would risk their healthy taxpayer pensions on this garbage.

Swing-state papers flip to Romney ahead of Election Day

Published November 05, 2012

The race for the White House is airtight hours before Election Day. But in the battle of swing-state newspaper endorsements, Mitt Romney appears to be winning -- aided in large part by papers that switched from backing Obama in 2008 to supporting the 2012 Republican nominee.

According to an analysis by Poynter, Romney has bagged a total of 24 swing-state newspaper endorsements, to Obama's 15. Across the country, at least 30 newspapers also flipped from backing Obama in 2008 to backing Romney this year.

They include some major swing-state papers, including the Wisconsin State Journal. In its editorial Sunday, the newspaper called Obama the "more likable and inspiring speaker." However, the editorial said, "this election is about jobs ... This is now Obama's economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games."

The State Journal joined the Des Moines Register, Naples Daily News, Reno Gazette-Journal and the Orlando Sentinel, among others, in flipping to back Romney.

The New York Daily News also made waves this weekend by endorsing Romney, after having backed Obama in 2008.

"Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world's toughest job," the endorsement in part states. "We valued Obama's pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship. The hopes of those days went unfulfilled."

According to Poynter, at least three papers flipped from Sen. John McCain in 2008 to Obama this year. They were the San Antonio Express-News, The San Francisco Examiner and the Winston-Salem Journal.

Several other newspapers abstained from endorsing anybody this year after backing Obama four years ago -- including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Palm Beach Post and the Dayton Daily News.
