Let's agree to stop calling the World Trade Center bombings, 9/11. We don't need to support the "branding" of disasters. Next thing you know we'll be invading some unrelated country using concocted intelligence in order to sell more munitions to the military.

Which means that taxing the rich at a higher rate is just an ideological ploy. The Boy Messiah keeps pointing at those "evil rich" while he sinks us ever deeper into China's clutch. There are only two ways to view this. One: the Jerk-In-Chief has no clue as to what he's doing to this country and it's future generations or Two: he does and is willfully and frantically pursuing it. I choose to view it as Number Two and we need to fight this b*stard tooth and nail if we are to save what's left of our children's country and future.
Liberal Apologists are having a field day here on Topix looking to do some more Bush-Bashing to cover for their Boy Messiah's bungling and "explaining" what it is that the Jerk-In-Chief is trying to do. It ain't working. The King's new clothes just aren't there and he's a buck-naked jerk sapping America's energy, self-image and world position to new historic lows.
Hope and Change? Hope is hanging on by a thread and all the Change has been into negative territory.
All I want to know is what is he planning to cut in his balanced approach.

I've asked three liberals that question so far and none of them had an answer.

Which means they don't have a clue either like the rest of us.

Yes. It's called being a gracious winner, as opposed to declaring a mandate and spending political capital.
No.*YOU* call it being a gracious winner, Mr. Wu Mao Dang.

The Boy Messiah has never acted as a gracious winner and if, at this late date, tries turning over a new leaf, it is only for buffing his political image in hopes of getting the upper hand in pushing us off the Fiscal Cliff.

Do you recall when Republican leaders met with him in the White House regarding ObamaCare? When John McCain spoke, the Jerk-In-Chief cut him off mid-sentence saying "John, the election is over and I won". Did you say "Gracious"? Lounge Lizards are more gracious.

Immediately following one of the Presidential Debates between McCain and the Boy Messiah, both couples passed each other exiting the stage. The men shook hands but as the two wives passed, Cindy McCain reached her hand out to Moochelle. The Ice Queen From Hell didn't even make eye contact with Cindy. She ignored the extended hand and brusquely walked past.

There is nothing gracious walking inside the White House today. There are but two political animals hiding their fangs as best they can along with the help of the complacent and committed media. So stop with the fairy tale approach. Save it for the kids.

I'd just be happy if he hung around D.C. long enough to sit down with republicans and hash out a do-able negotiation.

It's what's kinda expected of a president.

But it's okay with you that the Taliban occupied Afghanistan and shot women in the head at public events for entertainment.

Why the American People should be relying on the News Media to report what’s been negotiated!!
Boehner should tell Obama and Liberals/Democrats no more back door negotiations all future negotiation whether being with Obama or Reid or any other Democrat will be Transparent!! If Obama or any other Democrat disagree than have them explain!!

Even Terrible Timmy Geithner couldn't stop these spend thrifts? He's on Fox right now, making excuses?? He even lies with a straight face??
Actually Obama has added less to the debt than any President in the past 60 years. His spending has added only 1.4%. The debt problem would be growing at the rate current no matter who the President was until Washington stops it. It's hard to stop when 10,000 people per day turn 65 and $2 Billion per week is spent on war.

Do they enjoy being liberated from an Iraqi occupying force - i.e. Kuwait?
Do they enjoy being supplied with guns and training to run off Russian occuyping forces - i.e. Afghanistan?
Do Iraqis prefer electing their own leaders or sustaining a tyrant who tortured and oppressed them and put thousands in mass graves?
You're kooky.
Cherry picking. Sure, the Kuwaiti's probably liked it but obviously not everybody was thrilled with it. While a few Iraqi's might prefer the way things are now vs. under Saddam evidently a lot of people didn't appreciate us propping up dictators like Mubarek and the Shah. Except for the few who benefit directly the overwhelming majority does not like an occupier. If you pulled your head out of your ass for a minute and considered how you would feel about a Chinese occupying force in the US or in US waters or the EU installing and supporting a US President you'd get a clue.

Fulfilling the Constitutional responsibilities of the Office of the President would be sufficient.

I believe his package included $400 billion in Medicare cuts. Didn't they report that part on Fox? I mean, everybody else reported the two elements of the offer Geitner tendered: Let the Bush tax cuts expire for the wealthy and $400 billion in Medicare cuts.
