Barack Obama, our next President

CNBC's Eamon Javers reports the latest developments on "fiscal cliff" talks in Washington, and debating the financial benefits of raising taxes on the wealthy, with Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital CEO, and Richard Brodsky, Demos senior fellow.
PETER SCHIFF: First of all, I'm in the top two percent. Right now, I'm paying 45% of my total income in income taxes, both to the state of Connecticut and to the federal government, and if you take the 3% Medicare tax. After the tax hikes go into effect next year, more than half -- more than half of my total income is going to go to the government. You tell me, what's fair about that when medieval serfs pay 25%, I'm paying half? I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.
###
SCHIFF: You know what the wealthy are going to do? They're going to invest more abroad, they're not going to work as hard, they're not going to pay as much in taxes, they're not going to employ as many people. Their employees are going to pay all the taxes.
You might want to pass this over to ImaginaryDave. He says that the SCOTUS won't allow a majority to trample the rights of any minority.

Stay on topic. I said nothing about vote totals. I simply said and you offered nothing to rebut what I said that president nobama has did little positive since becoming president. I hope he is more successful, but, I am not hopeful.

The federal government cannot send armed National Guard into any state without that governor's permission to take control of that state.
"Armed" is the key word here. Bush refused to send in National Guard unarmed because of the violence and looting.
A democrat governor apparently had reservations about saving the same people she neglected to protect.
You are right, carol. Sending unarmed National Guard Troops into New Orleans at that time would be like sending National Guard Troops into Detroit during the '67 riots. The Governor and the President both knew that.

She changes the subject.
She won't admit that Reagan had alzheimers for most of his 8 years any more than she will admit to the mistakes Bush made.
Yet she refuses to address why Bush has been declared dead by the Republiclown Party.
carol simply doesn't listen to lies like yours. She's rational.

She also clearly recognizes a mouth with no brain behind it when she sees one in your posts.

"silly"
The pee must be running down your leg. Two of your fondest desires put forth by "nobama 2012";
- All private ownership of guns banned by 2016
- Repeal of the 22nd. amendment, so president nobama will have the ability to be president as long as he desires.
Your dreams answered.

And Stahl isn't biased? Stahl makes no attempt to conceal her bias anytime and anywhere.
She said herself Reagan seemed to "recover" and interpreted it to possibly be "what LOOKED like a lapse into semi-awareness" or an "act" as a way to avoid answering her questions.
Just because a few White House officials said that Reagan sometimes seemed distant but always "pulled himself together" - her words, not theirs - means Stahl is probably more confused than anyone.
Liberal Media Madams are a dime-a-dozen propagandists.
Nuculur will use whatever he can get his hands on.

See what happens when they let Hollywierd into run things? Of course that statement could exclude the fact that in some of Reagans admin, higher bars were in set in place, and people tended to HAVE to rely more on THEMSELVES, rather than just living off the givverment...so..

Guess Reagan wasn't as bad as SOME, but sure not a GOOD as others.

Yes Carol, that 78% was exactly what I was referring to. He did what any competent president would unlike his predecessor who got a whopping 35% approval rating on his handling of Katrina.
I never mentioned anything about Romney's claims on the $317 billion cuts from Medicare but either you have no reading comprehension skills or you're trying to divert from his blatant lie about cutting the work requirement for welfare by pointing to something he said that was only half true. The article you cite from Forbes actually comes from a Romney campaign advisor and you very carefully edited the article from the LA Times omitting this important statement;
"Mitt Romney repeated a somewhat misleading claim that President Obama cut $716 billion out of the Medicare program for current beneficiaries.
The president’s healthcare law does reduce future spending on Medicare, but those savings are obtained by reducing federal payments to insurance companies, hospitals and other providers, and do not affect benefits for people in the Medicare program.
Hospitals and other providers agreed to these cuts in exchange for the Affordable Care Act’s plan to reduce the number of uninsured patients they currently care for."
A large chunk of the cuts go to overpayments the government has been paying private insurance to administer Medicare Advantage plans which in reality don't offer much advantage and end up costing seniors more.
www.washingtonpost.com/.../Romney 's-right-Obamacare-cuts-medica r...
You're also ignoring the fact that the budget his running mate Paul Ryan proposed also cut $317 billion from Medicare but uses that money to protect tax cuts to the wealthy.
It wasn't Obama that accused Romney of killing someone's wife it was one of the PACs which by law has no direct connection to the Obama campaign. he President made it clear during a press conference;
"I don't think that Governor Romney is somehow responsible for the death of the woman that was portrayed in that ad," he said. "But keep it mind, this is an ad that I didn't approve, I did not produce, and as far as I can tell has barely run. I think it ran once."
No Carol Romney's ads whether run by his campaign or PACs and multiple statements made on the stump were patently false.
America’s doctors have conducted a full examination of the president’s health reform law — and their diagnosis of its effects on our healthcare system isn’t good.

Nearly two-thirds of doctors expect the quality of care in this country to decline, according to a new survey from consulting giant Deloitte. Just 27 percent think that the law will lower costs. And nearly seven of every 10 doctors believe that medicine is no longer attractive to America’s “best and brightest.”

Few people know more about our healthcare system than doctors working on the frontlines. Policymakers should pay heed to their indictment of Obamacare and revisit the disastrous law.

President Obama promised that his reform package would begin to stymie the out-of-control growth in the cost of American health care. He pledged $2,500 in health insurance savings for the typical American family.

"Jaw-dropping lie alert: Obama tells workers right-to-work laws “take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” in reality it stops workers from being forced to join a union as a condition of employment. Nothing in those laws relates to collective bargaining. So he’s either grossly misinformed or lying his ass off."

I reckon you've got enough space in between those ears for your own turbine.
The “war on Christmas” meme took a new turn on Monday as Fox News and other Republicans attacked the Republican National Committee for throwing an annual “Holiday Party” instead of a “Christmas Party” this year
News of the “holiday party” broke over the weekend. While some say it’s an attempt by the RNC to be more inclusive, Republicans pounced on their party for what some have called a new front in the war on Christmas.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, at a campaign appearance in Des Moines, Iowa on Monday, said the RNC’s party plans were the fault of liberals trying to destroy the Republican party and establish a secularist, socialist nation.
“This is just the latest example of the liberal secularization of America and demonstrates just how much they hate anything to do with religion, especially Christianity. The fact that the RNC would join in this crime shows just how widespread the conspiracy to destroy religion is in this country,” Gingrich said.“Obviously, the liberals have infiltrated the RNC.”
O’Reilly noted that since he’s called on his followers to walk out of any store where they’re greeted with “happy holidays” instead of “merry Christmas,” it was time for people to turn away from the Republican Party and Fox News as well.

"silly"
Last year a local supermarket chain issued a requirement for all employees, the would not say Merry Christmas, the greeting was to be Happy Holidays. The requirement lasted about 3 days and then it was rescinded, the folks turned away from the chain. Now employees can respond as they see fit.
