Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

All this to protect tax loop holes for the wealthy. It will be fun watching all you Republican lemmings diving off the cliff when the economy tanks.
Tax loopholes like mortgage interest deductions, state and local tax deductions, charitable deductions, etc?

If you know of any tax loopholes for those middle class folks who Obama considers wealthy, as compared to his super-rich buddies, please let me know so I can take advantage.

Will not file yet pending your response.

I can see why your head's spinning around!!

Obama is winning the tax/spending battle!!

Your Party is at war with itself, Obama's approval is over 50%, Republiclown House -20%.

Your side has been on a losing streak since Rmoney went down in flames and fled the scene!!

I'm lovin' it!!

And now they've pissed off Christie,their only viable candidate for 2016!!

The Republiclowns are destroying the Republiclown Brand!! How fitting!!

Homer, it's very much the opposite republicans refuse to meet with the president. The president rarely meets with republicans.
He sends someone out with briefings but rarely asks for input. He doesn't take questions from the press and insulates himself from any potential criticism.
The republicans met him halfway with his "balanced approach". He reneged on his half of the bargain. Now he wants to raise taxes yet again without addressing spending cuts.
This is not acceptable leadership.
He has employed every scare tactic in the book to convince you the world is coming to an end on Friday to get his way.
This is not acceptable leadership. And you know it isn't.

Republican lawmakers in Colorado say they want the White House to stay out of their state battle over gun control, accusing Vice President Biden of personally leaning on Democratic legislators for their votes in a tight campaign that could change the national conversation on gun rights.

Republican state Rep. Carole Murray told FoxNews.com she doesn’t appreciate “East Coast politics” interfering in her state

OldRaider I think the real question in 2016 if Hillary runs and another Black guy in the race will the Democrats Toss Her like in 2008?
The only Black guy in the race in 2016 will be Jindal, he's blacker than Obama, try selling him in the South. And, conservatives won't even invite Christie to their convention. So aside from Jindal all that remains for the Republicans to choose from are the clowns that got blown away be loser Romney! Teabaggers have demolished the Republican party.

Corporations urge Supreme Court to embrace gay marriage
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- More than 200 businesses will urge the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to strike down a federal law that restricts the definition of marriage to heterosexual unions.
Lawyers representing the businesses said they would file a brief in the case.
Companies including Microsoft Corp, Google Inc, Starbucks Corp and Pfizer Inc are among those that joined the brief. Others included Aetna Inc, Amazon.com , Inc and Citigroup Inc.
Thomson Reuters Corp is another signatory. The Reuters news agency is part of Thomson Reuters.
The companies want the Supreme Court to strike down a key provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Separately, lawyers representing another group of employers, including some of the same companies, had said already that they planned to file a brief on Thursday in a related case that questions a California law that bans gay marriage.
The two cases are to be argued before the Supreme Court on March 26 and 27.
In the brief filed on Wednesday, attorney Sabin Willett wrote that DOMA "requires that employers treat one employee differently from another, when each is married, and each marriage is equally lawful."
DOMA does not create any uniformity nationwide, Willett said, because 12 states in total either authorize same-sex marriage or recognize marriages that have been performed in other states.
That creates a burden for employers, particularly those who do business nationwide, he added.
Willett also wrote that the law forces companies to discriminate, sometimes in contravention of their own internal policies and local laws, when dealing with healthcare plans and other benefits.
"We must do all of this in states, counties and cities that prohibit workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and demand equal treatment of all married individuals," he added.
In briefs already filed in support of marriage being restricted to heterosexual unions, business interests have not been represented. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has not taken a stand on the issue.
----------
Another major hate issue is about to be taken away from the evangelical nitwits, as gay marriage is accepted in America and the Supremes will strike down right wing DOMA.
Social conservatives lose again!!

At the 11th hour, as usual. But this time he knows he isn't going to get his way and raising taxes yet again without any reasonable spending cuts just isn't going to happen.

So I imagine he's in panic mode presently.

53% want even more cuts than that of the sequester.

So how is it possible only 29% agree with republicans who have tried to pass several bills of cuts and reforms and 40% still agree with democrats who want to spend more?

Are people really this confused?

It's not Obama and Democrats who concern me the most. It's my fellow countrymen.
