Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

The City is predominately Black, the residents don't have jobs and haven't paid their taxes for years..
So, hey, lets put more people under control of an unelected overseer and allow them to be a dictator with no oversight other than the Governor who engineered the takeover in the first place.

The Republican fomented recession pushed many of these communities into these dire situations.

Lets give Obama the power to assign an overseer to each one of the dumvbass Republicans who voted yes yes yes under George Freakin Bush that created the situation in the first place.

I heard Woodward speak about this last night.
What you are portraying here is selective and not the whole story.
Pure selective propoganda is all you ever post.
pure selective propaganda?

ok.

Bob Woodward trolled us (and we got played)

Of course, Woodward (who was expert at trolling for publicity before the internet even existed), benefits greatly from the publicity (nothing sells books like controversy).

Make no mistake. This was no accident.

so here's some more right wing propaganda.

Has Obama finally broken the GOPís will?

Did Obamaís re-election break what was left of Republican will?

Consider some recent events. Republicans raised taxes in the fiscal cliff deal, and now, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has pushed through a tax increase to pay for a new transportation bill.

Virginia GOP Rep. Scott Rigell will travel with Obama to Newport News Shipbuilding, where the president will warn of job losses associated with sequester cuts.

Republican Governors like Rick Scott and (reportedly) Chris Christie are accepting ObamaCareís Medicaid expansion.

Meanwhile, Chuck Hagel is on the verge of being the Secretary of Defense, prominent Republicans are signing up to support gay marriage, and Obama is set to meet with Sens. McCain and Graham about immigration reform.

They were once so defiant.

I still don't know which is worse?

Clinton's Y2K scam, planes falling out of the sky, the world ending or Obama's Sequestration Cuts, lies to democrats that an Apocalypse or doomsday will occur, a Sequestration Order, automatic cuts hailed and signed by Obama.

While Obama is still blaming Republicans for everything that has ever gone wrong in his administration - somehow forgetting Democrats had control of Congress the last two years of the Bush administration, the first two years of the Obama administration, and who resisted any effort to rein in Fannie and Freddie for years leading up to the crisis - the Republicans washed their hands of the mess insisting the bills they passed in the last Congress to avert the cuts were passed with little to no Democratic support and were never taken up by the Senate.

So let's get this straight:

It was Republicans who tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie and Democrats who fought it every step of the way...It was Democrats who controlled Congress two years leading up to the crisis and two years after the crisis...And it was Republicans who passed bills in the House to avert the cuts with no support by the Democrats or never even taken up by the Senate.

How is anyone not getting this?

John Boehner Doesn't Care About the Deficit

The GOP only cares about tax reduction

...House Speaker John Boehner won't support the president's offer because it includes a tax increase. Which part of the tax increase does he object to?

It can't be the deduction limit, because, according to The New York Times, Boehner as recently as December 17 was willing to support that.

It can't be the $100 billion raised by switching to a chained CPI, because, according to CNN, Boehner supported that in December, too.

By process of elimination, it must be getting rid of tax loopholes.

But wait. Didn't Boehner give a speech this week saying tax reform was one of his highest priorities? He's reserved the designation "HR 1" for an income-tax-reform bill. The animating idea of tax reform is to swap lower tax rates for getting rid of loopholes. If Obama wants to eliminate loopholes now, shouldn't Boehner be in favor of that?

Actually, no, because Boehner wants to eliminate loopholes and lower rates. Never mind that doing so would likely eliminate any deficit-reduction benefit from eliminating the loopholes, and that reducing the deficit is the only thing any serious-minded person is supposed to care about these days.

It would be absurd to think the "reform" part of tax reform consists in lowering marginal rates. You might have a case if rates were unusually high, but in fact they're quite low by historic standards. As a percentage of GDP, tax revenue hasnít been this low since 1950!(The fiscal cliff deal bumped the top rates up, but only a little, and only on very high incomes.)

Boehner could try arguing that taxes are too progressive, and that what's needed is a tax system that's nicer to rich people and meaner to poor people. But Mitt Romney didn't have much luck with that gambit in 2012.

Inescapable conclusion: The GOP is not interested at all in tax reform, and it's only mildly interested in deficit reduction. It is mainly interested in tax reduction. All you need to do is look at the history of the past thirty-two years. The GOP has intermittently been interested in lowering the deficit whenever a Democrat was in the White House, but it has always been interested in lowering taxes. It has never not wanted to lower taxes. That's how they got so low!

The sequester can't be stopped because John Boehner thinks taxes are too high. But as we have seen, America's real problem is that taxes are too low. Historically low tax receipts go a long way toward explaining why the federal government is so broke right now. The Republicans' refusal to acknowledge this is pretty much the whole problem.

oops. sorry. not propaganda.
The Democrats really have made a mess of things, haven't they?

First, they resisted reining in Fannie and Freddie in the face of numerous warnings in the years leading up to the crisis.

They controlled Congress prior to and after the crisis.

They never passed a budget or proposed any solutions the past four years rejecting Obama's budget proposals twice.

They didn't take up any bills passed by the House to avoid the recent embarrassment.

And they still don't want to cut spending.

So explain to me again how Democrats aren't held responsibile for any of this mess and everything - I mean everything - is simply all the Republicans' fault?

It makes things nice and tidy for the Democrats to point fingers and come out smelling like a rose, but is it really as nice and tidy as they would have you believe?
