Barack Obama, our next President

I liked this comment from the WSJ:
was too hopeful that the Republican Party would realize it was time to compromise. But they continue to be obstructionists.
If we can’t compromise to get wealthy Americans to pay their fair share, let’s all drive off the cliff together. When we go off the cliff, wealthy Americans will start paying their fair share. Average Americans will have to pay a little more than their fair share; i hope we can handle that for a while. We will get defense cuts, something the Republicans would never agree to. And social security and the Affordable Health Care act will be fine, unrelated issues the Republicans keep bring up. Fear will tumble Wall Street but it will bounce back very soon.
Driving off the cliff might be the best deal we get. Don’t be afraid, don’t blink.

Erick Erickson: The Republican Party of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have taken a party that once believed in starving the beast and transforming it into a party that believes in feeding the leviathan lest the leviathan consume them. They operate out of fear — fear of losing their remaining power, fear of blame, and fear of the unknown.

I am absolutely in favor of simplifying the tax code. I am absolutely in favor of getting rid of loopholes. But I am absolutely opposed to engaging in machinations of the tax code designed to increase spending through closed loopholes and the like. Increased revenue should come through simplifying Washington to spur economic growth. Get Washington out of our lives.

While the Republican Party in Washington says that, it sure seems not to be living up to that. Consider this so called fiscal cliff.

The fiscal cliff is actually a bipartisan compromise that congress critters and their friends in the press have now given a spooky name to scare the American people lest Washington have to take the medicine it prescribed itself. The Republicans were complicit in this arrangement.

.....So what the heck does the GOP actually stand for? Right now, they seem to want to be the “responsible” party, but know they’re going to get blamed for whatever happens. They are scared of their own shadow. They are caving, but to what?

I couldn’t tell you. I have no idea what John Boehner and Mitch McConnell’s Republican Party stands for other than the acquisition and maintenance of their own power. They’re Bob Michel without the charm willing to take scraps from the Democrats’ table so long as they can sit on the floor next to it. Their own plans are designed around tactics, not strategy, and tactics designed to avoid as much blame as possible for a mess they were complicit in creating.

I can’t tell you what they stand for anymore.

http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/28/im-not-sur...

the overwhelming theme: "[they] know they’re going to get blamed for whatever happens"

Now Obama wants unilateral authority to raise the debt ceiling. Who the hell does he think he is, Mohamed Morsi?
Obama in 2006: "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.… Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
The difference was he ran on bipartisanship & so did the republicans which the republicans did an about face. They went from bipartisan talk to lets make Obama a1 term president & now even after they lost the election & the majority of americans voted for tax hikes on the top 2%, look who is blocking & holding the middle class hostage in opposition! These are common sense things that you know the true answer to, but you choose to shift the blame to try & make Obama look bad. Reality is america has moved past the days of the good ol boys & the party of one side dominance. This aint just an american thing. It's happening all over the world! Plenty of countries are trying their best to get under our skin & not just arab muslim ones. Russia, China,& a slew of others are pushing it to the limits. How long did ya'll think america would be able to tell countries how to run their sovereign nations before they felt it was time to point the finger & tell us it's time for regime change.? None of those countries wanted romney in office. What a coincidence! America feels the same way! Stop blaming Obama for the failed policies of the republicans past!

Iraq Body Count
http://www.iraqbodycount.org/
got it? you can even go add up all the people Saddam killed and it still makes Bush look like Stalin.
i'm sure glad we don't all live in your closed off bubble.
Your website isn't talking about the body count in mass graves.

Read this:

http://worldnews.about.com/od/iraq/qt/massgra...

Pretty gruesome stories.

Then read this:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/373836...

"Skeletons of unborn babies and toddlers clutching toys are being unearthed."

Now read this:

http://www.npr.org/2011/04/20/135570128/grave...

"Mass grave holds remains of more than 800 people killed during the rule of Saddam Hussein...it's believed the country has hundreds of mass graves from the Saddam era."

Finally this:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/15/internation...

"Several mass graves in southern Iraq contain the bodies of people killed by Saddam Hussein's government including one estimated to hold 5,000 bodies, Iraqi officials say."

GOP Between A Cliff And A Cave
As I’ve argued here | here | here the fiscal cliff is much more a public relations gimmick designed to cause submissive urination within the GOP than representing any long term risk to the economy. In fact, the CBO says the short term recession that may be triggered by going over this alleged cliff will result in long term growth.
Right now we have the best deal we are going to get: real spending cuts against the tax rates going back to the way they were during the Clinton years.
http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/30/gop-betwee...
Without the fiscal cliff, there will be no spending cuts and the deficit will balloon.

New York wants $42 billion for storm relief, all completely unfunded.

Ever so slowly, the racists and birfers crawl back to this thread after being thoroughly humiliated. LOL

Uh, I'm sure you dare not look, but Obama won FL handily!! Also took down TP darling Allen West.

Where ya been, Gramps?? We all expected you to be here to congratulate the smart ones, those who knew Obama was a sure fire bet to be re-elected.

I guess you were too ashamed to appear after buying into the Rmoney nonsense. He ended up with 47% of the popular vote. Rather fitting, eh??

But like the rest of the sore losers, you stayed away for weeks. Some are still too embarassed to return. Gunner, Fred, DBWriter among them.

Nobraina came back using some of his sockpuppets to hide himself. He's now using a CA proxy and changes the name on an hourly basis.

Surprised you came back at all, you old fraud.

Now that the birfers and Teabaggers have been thoroughly routed, not much future for old fools like you and crazy Ed.

Obama's re-election is a good thing for little Biff and Muffy. I'll bet they're happy!!

It would seem, "daughter", you will believe anything.

An unclassified chart by the CIA that describes a total of 40 briefings for lawmakers over a period of several years proved Pelosi's name appeared once as having attended a session on Sept. 4, 2002, when she was the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

The notation says the briefing was on "enhanced interrogation techniques on Abu Zubaydah...and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed."

Why Haven’t Republicans Repudiated Bush on Iraq?

The staying power of Bushism is more than a little perplexing. There are many things from Bush’s tenure that the GOP could have decided to reject, but the Iraq war is the most obvious choice. The Iraq war was a drawn-out, unpopular, extremely costly debacle that was mostly identified with Bush and his party by 2006, and it was a significant factor in wrecking the party’s reputation on national security and causing Republicans to lose both houses of Congress. The war in Iraq lasted almost as long as large-scale U.S. involvement in Vietnam, and the majority of the war occurred while Bush was in office. Republicans seemed to have every incentive to repudiate the war as a terrible mistake, but most of them have never done so.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

the big picture. all. day. long. left wing, right wing, doesn't matter. they all say it was a mistake and that there was very little justification to even put us in a position to make the mistake.

deal with it carol. it's the reality. you WILL NOT be able to walk away and try to say you were right. you have nothing.

If this is even true, it's because Congress rejected his initial budget involving massive spending - including Democrats!

He just sent the same plan again this year.

Why do you continually fight yesterday's battles??

I
t is clear that the Iraq War was a complete debaclefor the USA, on any level you choose to look.

Bush lied in his State of the Union speech, using threats of yellowcake that the Brits had already determined was false intel. He loistened to Chalabi, who proved to have lied about everything and was eager to convince the US to invade Iraq for his own political ends.

Yet you continually attempt to justify a war that is viewed as a tremendous mistake by most Americans, led by a Preident who is ranked the least popular of our ex-Presidents.

Before you deny this, tell me how much time Bush spent campaigning for Republiclown candidates.

Answer is zero!!

Even within the Republiclown Party, Bush is a pariah.

Yet you stupidly continue his defense.

This is as stupid a your whining about smoking restrictions. You voice a full throated defense of smokers, then claim you quit years ago!!

What a liar you are!! Don't know of any ex-smokers who lobby for the rights of smokers to share their poisonous exhalations with non-smokers.

Then, you go on to claim that second hand smoke is not dangerous to non-smokers. You're certifiable!!

That's how you deal with your guilt for polluting your home with smoke, damaging the health of your family.

http://www.spiegel.de/international/spiegel/s...

"... SPIEGEL: There are more than a few critics in Washington who claim that the Germans, because of Curveball, bear a large part of the repsonsibility for the intelligence mess.

Drumheller: There was no effort by the Germans to influence anybody from the beginning. Very senior officials in the BND expressed their doubts, that there may be problems with this guy. They were very professional. I know that there are people at the CIA who think the Germans could have set stronger caveats. But nobody says: "Here's a great intel report, but we don't believe it." There were also questions inside the CIA's analytical section, but as it went forward, this information was seized without caveats. The administration wanted to make the case for war with Iraq. They needed a tangible thing, they needed the German stuff. They couldn't go to war based just on the fact that they wanted to change the Middle East. They needed to have something threatening to which they were reacting.

SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.

Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."

SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.

Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it...."
