Barack Obama, our next President

When the majority of Americans vote for Marxist principles over Jeffersonian principles, it's time for states who want to secede to become sovreign nations.

It's what Jefferson would have done.

Economists say that if the package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the "fiscal cliff" takes effect on Jan. 1 the economy will likely sink into a recession.

http://news.msn.com/politics/most-wouldnt-be-...

WASHINGTON - Everyone who pays income tax — and some who don't — will feel it.

The package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the "fiscal cliff" takes effect in January unless Congress passes a budget deal by then. The economy would be hit so hard that it would likely sink into recession in the first half of 2013, economists say.

And no matter who you are, it will be all but impossible to avoid the pain.

Middle income families would have to pay an average of about $2,000 more next year, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has calculated.

Up to 3.4 million jobs would be lost, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. The unemployment rate would reach 9.1 percent from the current 7.9 percent. Stocks could plunge. The nonpartisan CBO estimates the total cost of the cliff in 2013 at $671 billion.

....what say liberals?

What do they say?

"Watch out for carol, she is one sour grape!"

Your Mitt was shown the door! Bye bye loser.

Even with all his millions: no brain!

The lying loser thought he was "winning" up till midnight?

On that 1950 platform and thievery tax cuts for the richest?

Here is the fiscal cliff: NO BIG DEAL!

THE SUN WILL SHINE TOMORROW.

If Boehner won't play ball: then rates go up anyway. So what. Spending gets cut a little. Republicans go down as the biggest jerks ever: and never win again.

BIGGEST LOSERS EVER? YES. SOUR GRAPES MORONS.

WSJ’s STEPHEN MOORE: “Now, look, Barack Obama won the election. Elections have consequences. He ran on the fact that he’s going to raise those tax cuts — those tax rates on the rich, so he can claim that he’s got a voter mandate to do that.” [FBN’s The Willis Report, 11/7/12]

GREGORY:“Did the President win the fight over taxes last night?”

TODD:“I looked at that exit poll. It sure looks like it to me.”

GREGORY:“Yeah.”

TODD:“Maybe not on health care. There were some other things that didn’t go so well for the President, but boy, on taxes, it wasn’t even close.”

CNN’s ANDERSON COOPER:“This president got re-elected very clearly saying that is what he wanted to do—to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. The Republican challenger said he did not want to do that and he did not get elected. Doesn’t that give President Obama and the Democrats some right to push for raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans?”[CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, 12/7/12]

SLATE’S DAVE WEIGEL: “Barack Obama ran on one consistent tax promise, in both 2008 and 2012. Vote for him, and you’d see middle-class tax rates stay the same while the rate on income over $250,000 increased to 39.6 percent. /// Twice, in four years, a majority of voters have picked Obama for president, knowing full well that he’ll raise upper-income tax rates.” [Slate, 11/7/12]

and when this all plays out and the world doesn't end and the economy fires up, you know these same a$$holes are going to find a way to try to take credit for it.

Just to show we can get along, I'll drive with my headlights on during the day for Romney and you drive with your headlights off at night for Obama. If we work together we can do this and the nation will be better off because of the cooperation.
