After House Republicans balked at President Obama's opening bid in the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released a statement on Thursday night urging Speaker John Boehner to make a counter offer and lay his cards on the table.
“If House Republicans consider the President’s budget a ‘new’ offer, then we await their counteroffer," Schumer said. "The ball is now in their court to state what they would do on entitlements and taxes. They have given no specifics so far.”

The Jerk-In-Chief is a firm believer in the suicidal adage that one needs to spend their way out of debt. And Stupid is, Stupid does. I still remember him lecturing European leaders to do this. They ignored him like carpet dog-shit at a State Dinner. It really was humorous. The Boy Messiah was the guy with the lampshade over his head sitting in the corner.
Today, he's dressed up the lampshade with free cellphones and Food Stamps hanging from it. Looks like a Pimp having a bad crack day.
The Europeans laugh at us and him. He doesn't have a personal relationship with any world leader except Hugo Chavez.

And, of course, drunks and lushes in boca raton fall for it like cheap dollar babes do with Las Vegas Lounge Lizards.
Good stuff for a new sitcom.
The mere fact an insipid, puerile, toilet themed show like "2 1/2 Men" is the top rated show in America confirms my worst suspicions about millions of my fellow Americans, they're idiots. And i'd wager all white democrats.

Dem. Patty Murray said she's ready to take us over the fiscal cliff if democrats don't get their way and raise taxes.

So let me get this straight.

Raising taxes will take us back into a recession...and democrats are threatening to ruin the economy if they can't cause another recession?

Do I have that right?

The Republicans’ Most Hypocritical Economic Argument
The Republican position on federal spending could not be clearer: It doesn’t create jobs. Except when it goes to defense contractors.
Under the debt-ceiling deal reached last year, planned spending is going to be “sequestered”-- that is, cut -- starting next January. The defense budget is going to take half the hit. On July 12, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign issued a press release with a statement from Bill Bolling, the Republican lieutenant governor of Virginia, attacking President Barack Obama for cutting defense too much.
....Needless to say, on the theory that the Republicans are advancing, the federal budget can never be cut. The U.S. Conference of Mayors will be able to say that cuts in social spending will devastate the economy of our cities with at least as much justice as defense-heavy areas can complain about cuts to the military. Rural areas can say the same thing about farm subsidies.
Reductions in federal spending, whether for defense or social programs, will, of course, be disruptive to the people, businesses and communities who have come to rely on it. The cuts should not, however, hurt the broader economy. When federal spending falls and jobs tied to that spending disappear, private-sector spending should normally increase and create jobs tied to it.
So long as the Federal Reserve is targeting inflation or nominal spending, total economic activity should stay roughly the same, even if its composition changes.(If the Fed responds to government spending cuts by tightening money, jobs will be lost. But that would be the fault of the Fed, not the budget writers.)
The Bloomberg Government study listed the 10 states that depend the most on defense dollars. Seven of them voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008, and an eighth, Virginia, has usually voted Republican in presidential races. So the party’s interest in keeping defense jobs makes political sense.
Yet the purpose of the defense budget shouldn’t be to subsidize particular people or areas. We don’t buy tanks and train soldiers to keep beauty salons in business. The Republicans resisting big defense cuts generally think that they would jeopardize our national security. That’s a debatable proposition. So debate it. What Republicans should not do is make an economic argument for defense spending that is both untrue and inconsistent with everything else they say about spending and the economy.
When they do that, they treat the nation’s defense as little more than a source of political pork.
