Barack Obama, our next President

Woodward Misses The Mark
....But in this case Woodward is just dead wrong. Obama and Democrats have always insisted that a balanced mix of spending cuts and higher taxes replace sequestration. It’s true that John Boehner wouldn’t agree to include new taxes in the enforcement mechanism itself, and thus that the enforcement mechanism he and Obama settled upon — sequestration — is composed exclusively of spending cuts. But the entire purpose of an enforcement mechanism is to make sure that the enforcement mechanism is never triggered. The key question is what action it was designed to compel. And on that score, the Budget Control Act is unambiguous.
First:“Unless a joint committee bill achieving an amount greater than $1,200,000,000,000 in deficit reduction as provided in section 401(b)(3)(B)(i)(II) of the Budget Control Act of 2011 is enacted by January 15, 2012, the discretionary spending limits listed in section 251(c) shall be revised, and discretionary appropriations and direct spending shall be reduced.”
Key words:“deficit reduction.” Not “spending cuts.” If Republicans wanted to make sure sequestration would be replaced with spending cuts only, that would have been the place to make a stand. Some of them certainly tried. But that’s not what ultimately won the day. Instead the, law tasked the Super Committee with replacing sequestration with a different deficit reduction bill — tax increases or no.
“The goal of the joint committee shall be to reduce the deficit by at least $1,500,000,000,000 over the period of fiscal years 2012 to 2021,” according to the BCA. The bill even provided the House and Senate instructions for advancing a Super Committee bill if it included revenue. This couldn’t be clearer. In the Super Committee’s waning hours, Republicans tried to entice Democrats into a spending-cut heavy agreement by acceding to a small amount of revenue. Democrats balked — the balance was off — but all of that just goes to show that a tax increase has always been a likely element of a replacement bill, and Republicans know it.
Woodward just biffed this one.

David Brooks got ate up for the same thing. in his 'retraction' he pleaded 'frustration'.
happens when you write an opinion based on nothing.
Obama, like you, is a pathological liar.

THERE ARE NO SPENDING CUTS PLANNED.

Obama is lying to you... again.

The only people in Congress pushing for less government spending are TEA Party. Every other Representative and Senator in Congress is negotiating how much more the government should grow.
We cannot pay for the government of the size it is now. What kind of an idiot discusses making the government even bigger?

Answer: Obama and Democrats.

1. Well, only 53% make enough to pay taxes. Hmmm. Now which president led us to that situation? Yuh think maybe eight years of chimp had something to do with it?
2. Avoids the question of who opposes Wall Street reform, doesn't it, Sir Cochroachie? Try to stay on topic. As for the banks, they willingly made out predatorial loans and are now being investigated for it. Try to stay in the news loop.
3. The issue is not your irrelevant queries, but the simple fact that your kind opposes minimum wage increases. Nothing more be said. The jury is in and the verdict lies on that simple fact.
4. More evasiveness on your part which pretends to address the issue. The bottom line is that Republicans hate social security and would like nothing better than to do away with it, as they tried under Bush. In that case, to privatize it. More specifically, turning over what was a trust over to Wall Street wolves.
Well, doesn't that once more reinforce the alliance between GOPers and Wall Street?
5. More nonsensical whining on your part, with the silly concluding remark that those who pay the taxes can't afford medical care, while the poorest can. Stop, take a deep breath, and listen to your idiocy once in a while.
6. Sorry, but I fail to see the morality or legal justification for jacking up credit card rates to 30%. The people who suffer from this the most are the poor. This is one of several points I made and nothing you state above refutes it.
Profits over people, right Mr. cochroachie?
Or have you forgotten how HMOs denied legitimate, long-term clients the kind of life-saving care they needed in order to pad the bottom line? The HMOs would just cancel their subscription under the bogus excuse "pre-existing condition".
But you don't want us to know that, do you?
Face it, Republicans are the party of the rich and big business. It's their class against everyone else. Actions speak louder than specious denials.
"1. Well, only 53% make enough to pay taxes. Hmmm. Now which president led us to that situation? Yuh think maybe eight years of chimp had something to do with it?"

Who decided what "enough" is? If you can afford a mobile phone and tatoos and drugs and booze and Air Jordan sneakers, you can pay your goddam fair share of government.
Besides, everyone has a plethora of opportunities to qualify themselves for a high-paying job. If they don't take advantage of those opportunities that have been given to them for fifty years, then that's just tough titty.
Pay your goddam fair share of what the government you voted for costs.

The rest of your bullshit is just more propaganda.... but I love this gem:

"2. Avoids the question of who opposes Wall Street reform...."

I told you what's wrong with the Democrats reform of Wall Street. The two primary criminals who orchestrated the economic collapse wrote the goddam bill to "reform" Wall Street. That's your Senator Chritopher Dodd and Representative Barney Frank, who oversaw the financial system of the country for two years before it collapsed.
Give us something not written by two of the biggest criminals in Congress.

<quoted text>All good Marxist sheep believe their handler's propaganda. It's how and why liberals remain on the reservation, in a ghetto or a preserve.
Speaking of propaganda-

"At one point during his confirmation hearing, when discussing U.S. policy toward Iran’s efforts to build nuclear weapons, Hagel said,“I’ve just been handed a note that I misspoke and said I supported the president’s position on ‘containment.’ If I said that, I meant to say that obviously – his position on containment – we don’t have a position on containment.”

Levin intervened:“Just to make sure your correction is clear, we do have a position on containment – which is we do not favor containment....

Just two weeks ago, the GAO kept the Pentagon on its annual "High Risk List" of departments whose books are so mysterious and opaque that they're at high risk of fraud, waste and mismanagement...."
-Curry, T. After seven-week struggle, Hagel poised for defense confirmation. NBCNews. Web 2/26/2013

Now, in the logical, NONigno-partisian worlduh, thre are at least a few gooduh reasons to appreciate the blurb above, and other comments not cited, from the above quoted article.

1. Hagel is a combat 'Nam vet, thus has a qualifier of actual EXPERIENCE (UNlike that of others in a few other currently held posisheeuns in DC)

2.The "GAO" sayz WHATUH? "Bahahahahahahaha" Current GAO clown festival spongebob and bobettes on taxpayer dolluhs pot-kettle-black much? Did anyone not clue them in as to the long time common procedures of everything is NOT transparent when it comes to America defense budgets?(too baduh for Iran and other rogue like nations!)

3. There;s a glimmer of hope FOR America, when some finally realize at least, handing MILLIONs of taxpayer dollars to places like Afghanistan is like burning the terletpaper rolls weekly- up in smoke, but of NO good use.

4. Reiteration-
"“I’ve just been handed a note that I misspoke and said I supported the president’s position on ‘containment.’ If I said that, I meant to say that obviously – his position on containment – we don’t have a position on containment.”"

YEAH--TELL IT like it is!! Good for Hagel-shoving the propaganda of poliTICal insanity-back down the parrotbrain spewer mouths of! And for admitting, currently, using the words "U.S. and foreign policy" in the same breath has been rather nothing but a pathetic mockery of historical key voting ideals.

The GAO needs to look at CAPPING entitlements, CURBING corp loopholeage (talk about spend and waste..spend and waste) and demanding a damn B-U-D-G-E-T again FOR America, not against it!!

T.E.A.-quit wasting OTHER peoples tax dollars-the economy demands it again!

Republicans have only themselves to blame for the sequester

The Republicans have a remarkably incoherent position on the sequester: It is a terrible policy that must be replaced with a cuts-only solution, they say, but there is no actual GOP plan that fits this description. Republicans seem to be hoping that President Obama will negotiate with himself until they are satisfied.
