Barack Obama, our next President

Dear House and Senate Democrats,

Your president has sold you out. A deal will likely be announced today canceling the scheduled income-tax increase on all family income below $450,000, instead of the promised $250,000 threshold, which was already too high. It will also extend unemployment benefits and what my colleague Jon Cohn calls the "refundables," i.e., tax credits for lower- and middle-income people, and it will cancel Milkageddon, which is all good. But it isn't clear what it will do about the automatic cuts in the "sequester," and the deal doesn't appear to include extension of the payroll tax cut, which even Bill Kristol wants to extend. Also, the Democrats mostly caved on letting the inheritance tax rise. Oh, and the deal gives Republicans carte blanche to take America hostage all over again in a month or two over raising the debt limit.

Please vote against this bad deal so we can greet the new year on the far side of the fiscal cliff, which, notwithstanding the hysteria that the Washington Post is doing its best to spread (with an assist from the Senate chaplain!), is not the Slough of Despond. It is the Promised Land, a place where Democrats will have considerably more leverage than they have today to compel a quick deal far more to their liking.

The White House means well, but it has bargained incompetently. As Jonathan Chait points out, any worry on the White House's part that it will be undercut by Senate Democrats too eager to make an even-worse deal is matched by a well-founded fear on the Senate Democrats' part that the White House won't hang tough. And anyway, the president has veto power, for crying out loud! Ezra Klein reports that the Democrats think they can make a deal now, force another tax increase later, and still get Republicans to back down on the debt ceiling. This is delusional. Any Republican who at this point believes Democrats will drive a hard bargain must be judged a fool.

You can change this calculus by demonstrating the fortitude that has abandoned President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Do not "come together." Stay apart. Until it's 2013.

Sincerely,

Timothy Noah

Hey ‘Joe’ I know Obama has delegated the Fiscal Cliff Crisis to you but another Crisis has pop up in Syria that needs Leadership!! The President and his advisers drew a “Red Line” for Syria if they used chemical weapons!!
Rebel forces in Syria report that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is now using chemical weapons on them. Moreover, intelligence operatives from the West have confirmed those reports as well!!
We know ‘Joe’ Obama has made ideal threats before that usually have an expiration date so I’m assuming this one has expired not a peep out of the Obama administration while thousands are being gas to Death!! So Joe here’s your next assignment!!

So far, I have yet to see one Democrat on here take part of the blame themselves; whereas, several Republicans have taken part of the blame, myself included.
Oh I blame BOTH parties for the spending. BUT that is NOT what caused the economic decline that started in 2008. What the fall of the economy was some RICH bankers decided to make home loans to anyone with a pulse. Then those RICH bankers sold those BAD loans to some RICH Wall St Hedge Fund guys that turned around and sold the carp to the world. Mean while over 30000 American factories closed by the RICH CEOs that owned them. Their greed blinded them to the fact that an American working is their customers. ALL this came to a bubble burst in 2008. Government spending and debt doesn't effect the daily lives of 99.99% of Americans ( Maybe in the future). It the economic collapse that put the brakes on it all. The Rich have done more to harm America than ALL the people that have ever been on Welfare.

Well, just about everyone in the government thinks you're fullofshit.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/dec/...

Now, the party line is, while this 7-hour attack was happening, and Al Qaeda was killing our ambassador while there were unmanned drones watching, the video feed was never called for at the White House.

The Obama administration has declined to respond to media requests for details about who was watching the live video, but a senior defense official told The Washington Times that “the surveillance aircraft captured footage of events on the ground” and “it wasn’t available that night at the White House.”
The officials said the “overhead footage was available at a DOD location,” and they declined to comment further.

In other words, either Obama was being his usual useless self and was completely unaware of the event while Al Qaeda is killing our ambassador, just like he didn't have a clue the operation to kill bin Laden was even happening, or this is just one more lie coming from Obama about Benghazi. We've heard so many lies about Benghazi from Obama, one more won't make any difference.

Can you tell us where Obama was during the 7 hour attack?
Can you tell us why the live video feed being watched by DoD wasn't called for at the White House?

Can you tell us why anyone would believe your party line bullshit?

Thanks for playing. Next?

Until the Israeli's have confirmed use of chemical weapons, it's all just propaganda.

More bullshit from Obama.
He knows there's not a snowball's chance in hell the fiscal cliff will be averted. Yet, the lies come as smoothly from his mouth as honey from a comb in Texas in August.
Republicans know the only way government will cut spending is with the fiscal cliff. The Democrat plant Boehner can't get enough support to increase spending to pass anything that will avert the fiscal cliff.

He also says the usual bullshit Democrat party line mantra, Medicare "must be cut responsibly."
Well, dufus, if government doesn't do something sane and cut spending across the board, Medicare and your precious Marxist welfare Medicaid will go away anyway because...

you may need to write this down...

MONEY DOESN'T GROW ON TREES.

Let the fiscal cliff come. It's the only way to cut government spending because the Democrats know well cutting government spending sends their plan to hell.

Instead of trying to avert cuts to government spending, we should be talking about how to increase the number of people paying income taxes. Half the population mooching off the other half won't survive, regardless of whatever else happens. It's just an impossibility among humans, just like any other idea based on Marxist principles.

Let's introduce some truth into your post....

The sole reason the WMD issue was even part of the discussion about the 18 UN resolutions being ignored by Saddam Hussein was VALERIE PLAME.
She was solely responsible for the WMD intelligence sent to both Clinton and Bush43.
VALERIE PLAME is responsible for any issue involving WMDs in Iraq.

Should we charge Valerie Plame with the murder of every serviceman killed in Iraq and hang her after she is convicted?

Democrats have no intention of cutting government spending.
Boehner is a Democrat wearing a Republican costume and has no intention of stopping anything the Democrats want to do.
If government spending isn't cut the government will collapse because... you may need to write this down... money doesn't grow on trees.
The only way for government spending to be cut is to let the fiscal cliff come.

The fiscal cliff was the only sane thing the government did in the past 4 years. Don't f**k with it.

Fiscal cliff will be avoided...apparently.

Officials familiar with the negotiations say an agreement would raise tax rates on family income over $450,000 a year and increase the estate tax rate.

The deal in the works would raise tax rates on families making over $450,000 a year to 39.6 percent. The tax on estates worth more than $5 million would increase to 40 percent from 35 percent. Unemployment benefits would continue for one year.

Officials said the White House and Republicans were at an impasse over what to do about automatic, across-the-board spending cuts set to start taking effect Tuesday. Democrats want to put off the cuts for one year and offset them with unspecified revenue.

http://news.msn.com/politics/obama-says-fisca...

...Democrats want to "put off" the cuts and "offset" them with "unspecified" revenues.

What else is new? Everything gets put off by them and revenues are always unspecified.

At least something is going to be done...temporarily.
