President Obama is coming out swinging two weeks before his second inauguration, but critics say he is overreaching when he should be building bridges.
Obama has vowed not to negotiate over the debt ceiling, demanding that Congress raise it without drama. His aides have made clear they believe the U.S. public would blame Republicans - not Obama - if the nation is forced into a debt default that he has said would be "catastrophic" for the world economy.
"This is overreach — hubris — for sure," said Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee.

Wasn't it Senator Obama who said raising the debt ceiling was a sign of bad leadership?
Yep, pretty sure it was him.
Republicans lost
and are divided along idiot lines

nfighting has penetrated the highest levels of the House GOP leadership. Long-standing geographic tensions have increased, pitting endangered Northeastern Republicans against their colleagues from other parts of the country. Enraged tea party leaders are threatening to knock off dozens of Republicans who supported a measure that raised taxes on the nation’s highest earners.

Republican Senate candidates Akin and Mourdock, alerted voters to the true intent of the GOP.

I agree, the new york times is not a sensible source.
I see you still haven't figured out google.
Unlike you my time is too valuable to waste on trying to figure out what you right wing druids really mean.

ObamaCare is a baby steps program that comes online over a lengthy period of time and has provisions for tweaking as necessary no matter who sits in the oval office or controls the US house.

It's not the greatest plan but it's a hell of a lot better than no fkn plan or a plan that allows health insurers to run roughshod over what amounted to captive audiences.

I'm just fine with google, bing and the others. Maybe not real speedy though.

Not even close.

Tax avoidance is perfectly legal.
But I don't whine about my taxes like you nitwits do.
It's the price of a decent society.
You'd rather allow your fellow citizens to die in the streets.
That's why you will continue to lose.

Nuculur you prove my point by taking your Legal deduction you as many Americans are saying it’s not that we’re tax to little we spend too Much!!

We've been doing speech recognition for four years now.

Try and keep up.

You wouldn't believe the stuff it spits out and the editing that has to be done.

It has a long way to go before it's so perfected and before MTs are no longer needed. I'll be retired long before then.

So how long have you been wearing a pessary?

Wow Carol, now you're saying that there was no war on Jews in Germany?
1000 pieces of legislation brought forth by your party against womens rights
The middle class is dwindling because of the Bush tax cuts
Institutional racism from hiring to lending to housing to education and judicial system is well documented
You are totally off your rocker, I didn't think you could become worse than you are but today, you hit the jackpot.
1000 pieces of legislation? Wow.

Sure it wasn't 999?

Hi Homer, 5 mins, working for a dictator? Carol now says there was no war against the Jews in Germany,
no war against women here
or minorities
or middle class
or science
Time to go.
What I said was Germans were suckered into believing there was a war on Jews too.

Because Hitler made them believe it by demonizing them enough times.

Get it?

Just like you're being suckered to believe Obama's "wars" on just about everything and everyone.

I would be quite willing to bet that I pay more in federal taxes per year than you earn per year.
I don't mind. I've been blessed and I don't mind paying my fair share.
Though I don't make $400k per year, I'm very close to the original 200k threshold.
I don't mind paying more taxes.
It mesans I've made more money.
I'm sure folks like you don't see it that way. That's why you're a renter in FL with dreams of a double wide trailer!!
ROFLMAO!!
I was very blessed to learn a new career that allowed me to stay at home to work and have the flexibility to be there for my daughter when she was growing up.

And very blessed that I could then go to part-time when I got older after being a full-time mom and full-time MT for all those years.

Have you ever had to be a full-time mom and work full-time too?

What about John Mica's train Carol? The one that Central Floridians voted against__three times__yet we're still getting along with 100% of the CSX track liability.

John Mica (R)

My grand kids will have white hair before that train needs over three sixty place passenger (cattle) cars.

How many million sucka?

Maybe we should compile a list of failed commuter train systems in Republican strongholds. Alphabetical order???

Just a busier than usual weekend. Also, hubby and I bought a Roku and flat screen TV for Christmas. Love to watch documentaries and foreign films on Netflix.

"Sarah's Key" and Aftershock" are just two of the pretty amazing foreign films I watched over the weekend.

Conservatives suddenly hate spending and deficits? Do you really expect people to buy that?
You have to actually identify a source of the money. You haven't done that yet. It's a simple question. All you have to know is how the government works to answer it.
Here's the question again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Has to do with Article 1 Section 7 of the US Constitution.
It's something you obviously haven't read, even as you complain about others not understanding the Constitution.

You're really dumb.

Now back to Cassius Clay.
What boxing website did you find that got you so fired up and in attack mode??
After I finish making you look stupid on that subject, we'll move n to your idiocy concerning Adam Smith.
You're in for a tough time, Dweeb.
So, the government is going to print a bunch of copies of the text of Article I Section 7 and use that for money?

You still have to identify a source of the money, which you haven't done yet.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

And, watch all of Ali's fights. Identify the fights where the referee stopped him from cupping, and notice that he lost all of those fights. Then, identify the fights where he cupped the entire fight, to include the fight where Ali punched the referee in the chest when he attempted to remove Ali's golve from a cupping position, and continued to cup the entire rest of that fight, and notice that Sli won all of those fights.
Let me know when you've verified this new information to you.
