Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

No matter how it happens, Obama won't be going over the cliff...
According to senior administration officials, Obama is not eager to go over the cliff, but he is willing. If no deal is reached by the end of the month, all the Bush tax cuts—for the rich and not-rich—will evaporate. Obama would then demand in early January that the new Congress immediately pass legislation to reinstate the lower tax rates for the bottom 98 percent. Boehner and the Republicans presumably will find it difficult to say no and insist they will only vote for such tax relief if it includes breaks for the wealthy or cuts in Medicare and other government spending. As a Democratic strategist close to the White House says, "For years we've tried to make the case that the Republicans are willing to hold up tax cuts for 98 percent to help the guys at the top. This is the cleanest shot we've gotten at this."

but the republicans will be going all the way to the bottom.
They are so screwed.
Love it. I say do it and let the American people see who the Republicans really care about. Let them show their true colors.

Exactly. Like I said, one of us will know the truth. Which more than likely will be me. Because people like O'Reilly and Krauthammer aren't part of the Obama Team Cheerleading Squad.

It was actually in February 2009, three months after his election in 2008.
He called for $3.6 trillion in spending in 2010 estimating that $2.4 trillion in revenue will be collected.
The question is: Did he estimate correctly?
However, consider this:
Obama exceeds all former presidents in extravagant and very costly White House dinners.
Two years ago, an extravaganza held for Mexican President Felipe Calderon included a performance by Beyonce and cost the taxpayers $969,793.
The dinner for the prime minister of India cost nearly half a million dollars.
Dinners for Chinese President Hu Jintao and British Prime Minister David Cameron were of the same level of extravagance.
I'm sure you would agree this kind of spending seems unfair with so many Americans out of work.
Watch out, Lorac's been reading Newsmax again!!

Will the whining little Carol ever face the fact that Obama won and her merry band of nitwits lost??

Elections have consequences. One is that you nitwsits need to STFU after losing the past election bigtime!!

----------

While you're at it, consider this;

President George W. Bush spent over 124 million taxpayer dollars on trips to his ranch in Crawford, TX, and using John Boehner’s logic we demand that the GOP pay us back.

While trying to distract America from the fact that his own caucus passed a budget that would double the interest rate on student loans, Speaker of the House John Boehner is whipping up the faux outrage over the cost of President Obama’s travel this week. Today, Boehner said,“This week, the President traveled across the country on taxpayers’ dime, at a cost of $179,000 an hour, insisting that Congress fix a problem that we were already working on. Frankly, I think this is beneath the dignity of the White House.”

Not surprisingly, John Boehner was totally silent when President George W. Bush was setting the presidential record for most vacation days. Bush was not only on vacation more than any other president. He spent more money on non-official travel than any other president in American history. As president, George W. Bush used Air Force One to fly to his ranch in Crawford, TX for vacation.

Boehner’s comments about the cost of Obama’s travel got us thinking about how much money the Republican Party owes taxpayers for George W. Bush’s non-official vacation travels. Using a method that we have cleverly coined Boehner Math, this is what we came up with.

Number of George W. Bush flights for vacation in Crawford, TX: 77

Cost of running Air Force One:$179,000/hour

Flight time one way from the White House to Crawford: 4.5 hours

Cost of one way flight:$805,500

Roundtrip cost:$1,611,000

Total cost to taxpayers of Bush’s vacation trips to the ranch:$124,047,000

Unlike President Bush who used Air Force One as personal vacation and campaign jet, President Obama’s events were held to discuss the public policy issue of the impending increase in the student loan interest rate. Bush spent over $124 million of our tax dollars flying to Crawford to clear brush, and while he was doing this Republicans like John Boehner never demanded that he pay back the cost of his travel to the taxpayers.

Boehner and the Republican Party just don’t get it. This is a non-issue, and if they really want people to look into the cost of presidential travel, they aren’t going to like the results. They are not going to be able to paint Obama as a presidential globetrotter whose largesse is coming on the taxpayer dime.

Instead of creating a distraction issue, Boehner and the Republican Party attack on President Obama has alerted the American people to the fact that they owe us a whole lot of money. And we would like to be paid.

George W. Bush and the Republican Party owe taxpayers over $124 million, so until Boehner and Bush pay us back, the Speaker needs to keep his hypocrisy infected mouth closed.""

Sure. And all cash sales in all businesses, seasonal or not, actually get rung up and sales taxes are paid.

Surely you know that some cash businesses pay their employees in cash, "off the books", with no Social Security or tax withholding.

The higher the taxes, the more the economy goes underground.

The wizened old man appeared out of the crowd and carol could just see the stirrings of passion in his rheumy old eyes... "Read your fortune for a quarter, step right up..."

The old man did step up and he held out his bony hand and carol took it... it was surprisingly sticky she thought, but went ahead and read it anyway...

"Hmmmmm, long life line alright," they both chuckled, "and you'll find love late in life." She and he both looked up and it was easy to tell the old man's heart was breaking. "Oh no, honey," carol said. "Not me, don't fall in love with me." But it was too late, she could see that.

Carol sighed, and took off her turban, "C'mon, pal, we'd better go get a cup of coffee." And the old man followed her off down the midway like a chastened puppy.

Next to carol's booth at the fair John Galt watched the scene unfold from his own booth marked, Galt's Gulch, Fortunes Made, Fortunes Told. He smiled to himself that his competition for predicting the future was otherwise disposed now and he made the most of his opportunity. "After January 1, better buy gold, take my word for it!" he yelled into the wind.
