The GOP has no interest in what's best for the country.
He sent Timothy Geithner to Capitol Hill to present his laughabale plan to Republicans and to negotiate. Geithner is stepping down in January.

He sat down with Republicans one day on the 17th.

Obama could care less about solving this potential crisis. If Republicans don't give in to his demands by the end of the month, taxes will go up anyway. So he's going to drive us back into a recession with or without negotiating with Republicans.

I agree.

This time of year, worth a repeat of an old story:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

......Abraham Lincoln

There are no appropriations for the 2013 budget because the Super Committee hasn't reached an agreement since tasked to do so in 2011. That's the "fiscal cliff" you've been hearing about if no agreement is reached before the Bush tax cuts expire (again).

Retaining control of the House of Representatives is hardly a "broad rejection."
"Retaining" is the operative word here contrasted starkly with the phrase "re-take the Senate".

Obama would never let a crisis go to waste, when he could use it to further his agenda. But hey, this is what America wanted. I think Republicans should let him do whatever he wants starting with taxing the rich and continuing the

Strangulation of businesses with more government interference

Refusing to okay the pipeline so that the energy goes to China

Keep the unemployment rate high and prospects for decent jobs low so that many don't bother to even look

Grant mass amnesty for more poor to strain the system and take away more resources from America's existing poor

Continue implementing ObamaCare and watch how many complain about what they no longer have: Employer sponsored decent healthcare

America deserves all of the above. Our grandchildren don't, but Americans have already decided to live for today and f*ck the future.

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.
You didn't mention the women in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule.

Punishments against women by the Taliban in Afghanistan were often carried out publicly either as formal spectacles held in sports stadiums or town squares or spontaneous street beatings.

In October 1996, a woman had the tip of her thumb cut off for wearing nail varnish.

In December 1996, 225 Kabul women had been seized and punished for violating the sharia code of dress. The sentence was handed down by a tribunal and the women were lashed on their legs and backs for their misdemeanor.

In May 1997, five female CARE International employees were forced from their vehicle by members of the religious police. The guards used a public address system to insult and harass the women before striking them with a metal and leather whip almost 5 feet in length.

In 1999, a mother of seven was executed in front of 30,000 spectators in Kabulís Ghazi Sport stadium for allegedly murdering her abusive husband. She was imprisoned for three years and extensively tortured prior to the execution, yet she refused to plead her innocence in a bid to protect her daughter (reportedly the actual culprit).

When a Taliban raid discovered a woman running an informal school in her apartment, they beat the children and threw the woman down a flight of stairs (breaking her leg) and then imprisoned her. They threatened to stone her family publicly if she refused to sign a declaration of loyalty to the Taliban and their laws.

An Afghan girl named Bibi Aisha was promised to a new family through a tribal method of solving disputes known as baad. When she fled the violence girls often suffer under baad, her new family found her and a Taliban commander ordered her punished as an example, "lest other girls in the village try to do the same thing". Her ears and nose were cut off and she was left for dead in the mountains, but survived.

Failure to comply with Taliban's threats led to women being shot and killed as was the case of 22-year old Hossai in July 2010.

Many punishments were carried out by individual militias without the sanction of Taliban authorities as it was against official Taliban policy to punish women in the street.

<quoted text>"Meet the Press:
Obama has proposed giving 100% of American tax payers a tax break by making the Bush tax cuts permanent on the first $250,000 of income.
Republicans are insisting that 100% of American tax payers incur a tax increase if the 4 cents on a dollar Bush tax cut for those earning more than $250,000 is not extended. And they accuse Democrats of failure to compromise. It's laughable.
Hey Boehner! Where's the Republican counter proposal?"
Leo, It isn't up to Boehner, IF... you earned $250,000, you wouldn't want your taxes increased anymore than a tax increase on the $15912 you earn now, so give it a rest.... If Barack Hussein Obama hadn't increased the national debt six fold we might not be in the position taxpayers find now??

Exactly, a broad rejection of the Republican Party. Time to regroup and come up with a realistic face for the party. This comic book shi t they've been playing on Fox for the last fifteen years don't play anymore.

No, "broadly" was the word I used and the word I meant to use. If you watch anything but Fox "News" you'll see the party itself scrambling to redefine itself. I presume Fox "News" will keep flying the true "conservative" banner.

Good luck with future elections if people like Rubio or Jindal aren't added to the list of "contributors".

Hyperbole much?
A 3% increase in marginal rates on incomes over 200K is not destroying the rich.
'job creators' is GOP nonsense speak.

And the GOP will take the blame. The Senate has already passed a bill extending tax cuts for 98% of Americans. The GOP Congress won't even bring the bill up for a vote.

It's 3% on income AFTER 200,000. Folks managed just fine with that rate under Clinton's watch. You know, before Bush turned that surplus into a deficit waging 2 wars on China's credit card,passing Medicare Part D w/o paying for it, and collapsing the economy.
The annual budget deficit is now LESS than the 1.3 trillion Obama inherited, you boob.
Try changing the channel. After all, Romney did NOT win in a landslide like 'they' told you.

50,000 women were systemically raped in Bosnia, there are approx 500-600 children born from these rapes, they do not have birth certificates, the mothers have abandoned them, the fathers are unknown. Only a handful of these rapists were prosecuted, the women live in fear for life. They are psychologically and physically damaged for life.
Honestly, men are fking sickening beyond words. How many years did this go on and no one gave a shyt
