Barack Obama, our next President

The one sure fact about the current debate is that everybody wants the other guy to pay higher taxes, not themselves, and that nobody wants their own benefits reduced.
A recipe for disaster.
Oh you have seen all those liberal posts complaining about taxes have you ? Because I haven't seen one, not a single post saying they want to pay less only from your lot. So it's kind of hypocritical to talk about the other guy when infact its your lot that you are talking about.

At least we agree on one thing, no tax collected is a disaster but that is the aim of your party. A rising source of expenditure, not introduced by Obama but an ageing population demanding services and nothing was done about it for 30 yrs but you want Obama to deal with it now!
So it's either a slash n burn where Obama stops all assistance to the states and let you look after the crime rate with your bushmaster. When the states have no funds to provide essential services like clean water, sanitation, police & fire I'd say you would do pretty well. Because that is what you are really asking Obama to do, cut back more when he has reduced expenditure more than any president since the last depression. But with Trillion$ dollar wars and a GFC on his ledger sheet I'd say he is doing pretty well.

Republicans can't be to bad if you look at it state by state

just about all republican run states are out of debt and have money in surplus and low unemployment

just about all democratic run states are just about bankrupt and unemployment is high

Did you copy this from Glen Beck's blackboard, this is the sort of crap he would put up. All this over not wanting someone's taxes to go up who earns over $250k, are you kidding us or what.
Your mob would rather return the country back into the sink hole they created by protecting the exact same group of taxpayers. Just to prove a point ? Not only that send the whole world economy backwards as well just when the economy was starting to get positive numbers.
This shows the smarts of your lot that believe they always have the high moral high ground defending the 3 G's. God, Guns & Giveme
Hey… McFly we’re in a Sink Hole!! When Obama took office 1in 15 Americans in Poverty, 31 million Americans of Food Stamps, Debt 10.6 trillion I could continue!! After four years of Obama’s leadership, 1in 6 Americans in Poverty, 47 million Americans on Food Stamps, Debt 16.3 trillion!! Only a liberal would Bliss Obama’s past four Years!!

Less than 36 hours before the new year, when the Bush tax cuts are scheduled to expire, budget negotiations on Capitol Hill ground to a halt, and an increasingly restless Mitch McConnell — the Senate Minority Leader — enlisted the help of Vice President Joe Biden to resolve the remaining differences between Democrats and Republicans over whether and how to avoid the fiscal cliff.

McConnell’s gesture suggests a desire to avoid an uncomfortable New Year’s Eve conundrum. If he and Biden come up empty, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has pledged to introduce legislation that would extend the Bush tax cuts for income up to $250,000, extend emergency unemployment benefits and protect millions of middle class taxpayers from having to pay the Alternative Minimum Tax. McConnell and Senate Republicans would then have to decide whether to mount a filibuster, and bear responsibility for the economic impact of across the board tax increases and spending cuts next year, or allow the legislation to pass on a majority rules basis, and pass the measure over to House Speaker John Boehner.

Negotiations broke down Sunday after McConnell pressed Reid to include in a year-end deal a provision that would re-index Social Security payments to a less generous measurement of inflation called chained CPI. Dems say including Social Security cuts in a deal that doesn’t increase the debt limit is a non-starter.

On the Senate floor Sunday afternoon, Reid officially quashed the offer.“We’re willing to make difficult concessions as part of a balanced, comprehensive agreement but we’ll not agree to cut Social Security benefits as part of a small or short-term agreement, especially if that agreement gives more handouts to the rich.”

You are right on track. You respond to nothing in a post. Why do you not respond. Because you have no answers. All you are is a robot troll an asskisser of your messiah, president nobama. The fact remains that president nobama is on track to run up more in debt than all presidents before him combined. And for what?
- A weak economy
- Real unemployment up
- More American's on food stamps
- GDP growth barely the rate of inflation
Face it you love the situation, you just stick out your hand and take what others, those who work and produce, provide for you.

You proved my point.

You blame Obama for the effects of the Bush recession.

I knew a lowlife sorry ass loser like you would do eactly that.

Negotiations to reach a last-ditch agreement to head off large tax increases and sweeping spending cuts in the new year broke down, at least temporarily, on Sunday after Republicans requested that a deal include a new way of calculating inflation that would lower payments to beneficiaries programs like Social Security and slow their growth.

I guess you're asking how we're going to pay for the inherited debt from bushie.
Well, we know bushie doesn't have to answer.
Like Obama is standing by his "transparency" promise? Taxpayer money is disappearing at record rates. There's money missing from the Federal Reserve that we'll never see again. How convenient.

" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Security_... ;

By law, every president can take all of the Social Security Department's annual surplus and re-appropriate it for Defense Dept. use. There's no way Obama can resist keeping us involved in foreign wars as long as he has access to that account.

One of these wingnuts told me that the red states have most of the black folks and that's why the red states get the biggest handouts from the government.

i hear that crap all the time. and not from the democrats.

want some more? this is the 'we hate all black folks because Obama keeps giving them stuff' thread. and again, it's not the democrats.
