Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Maybe not.
It was a gracious gesture by our President, a class act all the way. It can't be easy to lose an election, Mitt gave a nice concession speech, should have left it at that instead of whining that President Obama gave the people gifts. He is his own worst enemy.
Anyway, I do feel sorry for him,
I'll never forget Bush serving hotdogs to McCain! That was brutal. The Republican Party is severely weakened, they have nowhere to go. Good time for a third party to gain steam.

White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to Speaker John A. Boehner’s (R-Ohio) demand that any increase in the debt ceiling as part of a ”fiscal cliff” deal be matched by equivalent cuts in spending.
“Asking that a political price be paid in order for Congress to do its job to ensure that the United States of America pays its bills and does not default for the first time in its history is deeply irresponsible,” Carney said in Thursday’s press briefing.
“It was deeply irresponsible in the summer of 2011 and it would be deeply irresponsible to see that approach taken again. The president expects Congress to do its job.”

Darwin would be proud

" The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.

Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is "trillion'' with a "T.'' That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President's budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion."

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.”

look at again after you read this.....

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

How do you expect people to afford monthly mortgage payments without a sizeable down payment? Then add mortgage insurance on top of that.

Turning a "corner" assumes a lateral change. Left or Right comes to mind. In this case, it is Left and Backward.

Bingo. The addicts of the Left are in a cold sweat. They haven't been able to more in a long time. Pelosi's got the shakes and Hairy Reed can't get his tongue hard anymore. The Boy Messiah's trying to hide it but he's up to a pack-a-day now. He just has to spend more.

The Republicans are practicing Tough Love.
