Barack Obama, our next President

VIDEO: How The GOP Constantly Pretends Spending Cuts Haven’t Happened

Between the spring 2011 budget fight, the debt ceiling debacle, and the so-called “fiscal cliff,” the United States has cut almost $1.5 trillion in spending over the next decade, plus saving roughly $200 billion more in lower interest payments.

In fact, at the Wall Street Journal breakfast featured in the video, reporter Lori Montgomery brought up all these previous cuts point blank with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). Ryan’s rejoinder encapsulated the entire bizarre kabuki dance:“That was last session. We’re going forward now.” Montgomery and the other reporters literally busted out laughing in response.

The Republicans are doing exactly what they should be doing. Playing chicken with a president who takes and never gives and never does what he promises.
In the game of chicken, the chicken always looks away or veers off first. It's actually come down to this. A president who likes to play games to win rather than solve problems.
The Jerk-In-Chief treats the country the same way he treats the deficit: "Hell, it ain't *MY* money!!"

The Sequester Game of Chicken

Just as in 1995, Republicans believe they hold all the high cards. They are 100 percent certain that Barack Obama will buckle and accede to their demands because voters will blame him, rather than them, for any negative consequences resulting from sequestration. The fact that polls universally show that people primarily blame Republicans in Congress appears not to have penetrated their consciousness.

My guess is that the sequestration will be of short duration. In fact, it will last exactly until March 27. That is the day when the appropriations for fiscal year 2013, which began on October 1 last year, run out. Republicans have persistently refused to do their basic work by funding the federal government because they think, just as they did in 1995, that the threat of a government shutdown will force a Democratic president to bow to their will.

Thus far, there is no evidence that Obama is in a mood to be rolled by Republicans. He does not have to run for re-election and he feels confident that the public will blame Republicans in Congress rather than him when the you-know-what hits the fan. I think he believes the government can weather a brief sequester and that Republicans will, ultimately agree to end it when they are forced to finally pass 2013’s appropriations.

I think this is a reasonable assumption. A new report from the Bipartisan Policy Center notes that past sequesters have never been permitted to run their course. It’s such an incredibly stupid way to cut spending that Congress has always relented.

It’s childish and immature for Republicans to behave as if control of one house of Congress somehow gives them a mandate to impose their will on the entire government. But such is the sad state of the Republican Party today, in which a desire to avenge past slights carries more weight than responsibility does.

He didn't have to come right out and use the word "lie" in the language.
Woodward uses synonyms in his book that means "lie" as well as in every interview.
If you heard the entire interview, you'd be embarrassed splitting such a thin hair.
It's like saying I don't like using the word "hate" but would rather say "distrust", "loathe" and "despise" instead. The meaning is still crystal clear.
Woodward has balls and yet speaks like a gentleman.

The Boy Messiah plays with balls and lies like a car salesman.

"No, I did not feel threatened," Woodward responded. "What I have said, David, and come on, you are making, putting words in my mouth. I said I don't think this is the way to operate. And you and I have had many discussions. You've never said to me, Oh, you're going to regret doing that, am I correct?"

"Yes, but this was a specific discussion about a specific point you had raised," Axelrod said. "It seemed like Gene was, in that email, certainly was very, very polite in the way that he pushed back on that. I'm not putting words in your mouth, Bob. It's your newspaper that said you said you were threatened."

I heard Woodward speak about this last night.

What you are portraying here is selective and not the whole story.

“The Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) condemns in the strongest possible terms a recent hateful political attack ad focusing on Representative Keith Ellison’s religion. The ad rings in character impugnment tied to religious faith and not Representative Ellison’s actions as a public official.
“Representative Ellison is a friend to the Jewish community and we have enjoyed a strong working relationship with him since he assumed office in 2006. Even when there are significant issues on which we disagree, we appreciate and respect working with Representative Ellison.
“The Constitution of the United States of America guarantees that ‘no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.’ To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this means that we elect our elected officials based upon the content of their character, not their faith.”

Right at this moment, White House staffers are inflating a thousand blow-up dolls. They'll be laid out in front of the White House to demonstrate just how many Seniors have died from Meals-On-Wheels cuts. Nancy Paloosi, Hairy Reed and Margie whats-her-name will show up to make some tear-jerk speeches over them for the ABC News cameras, Oprah and Katie Couric.

Afterwards, there will be a Pepito-Bismol party with barf buckets on hand.
