Barack Obama, our next President

Weekly Address: Averting the Sequester and Finding a Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction

Now, my preference – and the preference of many Members of Congress – is to do that in a balanced, comprehensive way, by making sensible changes to entitlement programs and reforming our tax code.

You wear stupidity like a Badge of Honor!!

After spending the entire Presidential campaign hammering Obama for 'cutting'$700 BILLION from Medicare, you come back now and say he won't cut anything??

You are either insane or bi-polar.

Either way, your double talk amounts to bupkis.

You sound as whacked out as O'Pervert did last night when Allen Colmes made him look the angry idiot he is.

Aren't you getting tired of playing this game of having these showdowns every two or three months? The Republicans met Obama halfway in January and he wants to raise taxes again.
Tell me one thing Obama has proposed to cut in the budget.

Impenetrable bubble? President Obama has already cut spending by about $1.5 trillion, which is a lot more than Republican policymakers cut during the Bush/Cheney when all they did was put new expenses on the national credit card. He has also offered hundreds of billions of dollars in additional cuts, as part of a bipartisan compromise, which the GOP refuses to consider.
Are you prepared to condemn Senate Republican obstructionism, which is preventing the Senate from doing its work?

Those meat clever cuts were passed by Congress. They failed to compromise & make a deal.

I'm sure you must be referring to CNN and CNBC getting a freakin grip. It was they, not I, who published this information.
Do you prioritize "social rights" over civil liberties in lieu of a concentration of power like the Venezuelans under Chavez?
You posted it.

" OMG OMG that fricken Obama & those GD Democrats did this & they did that" When in reality your post was misleading.

The worse part is you will ignore this & keep posting the same crap over & over.

My God, you right whiners have a new catch phrase. You do realize that Republicans are the ones pushing fewer civil liberties for some of our citizenship as they fight against Gay Marriage & look to limit abortions & use photo ID laws to deny the right to vote.

Harry Reid was Speaker of the House? When was that?

Look at the record of accomplishments; bills passed under Nancy Pelosi.
Then look at Boehners. Boehner has never gotten over a 25% approval rating; and this Congress, even lower.

Reid's a Mormon, just like your hero, Rmoney!!

He doesn't drink, and has been very effictive as Majority Leader in the Senate.

Boehner, OTOH, is clearly a drunk, with his alcoholic wet eyes and crying jags.

He can't even control his own people in the House.

The only reason he's still Speaker is that nobody else seems to want the job.

While you're still a low class nitwit.

Who are you mad at and why? Boehner and McConnell? I understand.

The President said it best: I am not a dictator.

You're mad because the President can't make it all better? You have no idea how our government works, do you? Aren't you embarrassed about yourself, being over 60 and still acting like a 5th grader? You should go on that show and make a national fool of yourself.

after Brooks got smacked down by everyone for trying an 'O'Reilly'....

The above column was written in a mood of justified frustration over the fiscal idiocy that is about to envelop the nation. But in at least one respect I let my frustration get the better of me. It is true, as the director of the Congressional Budget Office has testified, that the administration has not proposed a specific anti-sequester proposal that can be scored or passed into law. It is not fair to suggest, as I did, that tax hikes for the rich is the sole content of the president’s approach. The White House has proposed various constructive changes to spending levels and entitlement programs. These changes are not nearly adequate in my view, but they do exist, and I should have acknowledged the balanced and tough-minded elements in the president’s approach.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/22/opinion/bro... ;

so the big difference between Brooks and O'Reilly?'everyone' doesn't pay attention to BillO.

Projecting much Carol? The middle class didn't get their taxes raised outside of the payroll tax holiday which was never meant to be permanent. The GOP has never cared about the middle class and have constantly thrown road blocks up on any legislation that would increase jobs.
Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats don't fly around in fancy private jets you goddamn liar, they fly commercial like everyone else. The only member of Congress that gets a private jet is the Speaker of the House currently Republican John Boehner.
"Middle class" is a value set, not an income level.

Middle class taxpayers will pay higher taxes on dividends and capital gains, not to mention the numerous tax increases embedded in Obamacare.

Unfortunately much as what occurred in Venezuela over the last 15 years, the takers in our society have begun to outnumber the makers. The losers in Venezuela took to the streets to mourn their dictator, who plundered their economy for personal wealth, because he handed out free bread to them. Just like the losers of our country elected a president based on the freebies that he promised.
This is one day where it is possible to be jealous of Venezuelans.

The idea was to force spending cuts.
Congress was supposed to provide smarter cuts & they failed.
Obama refused to allow Congress to back out of the deal.
Right now he is still trying to get Congress to come up with better ways to cut.
Congress was willing to provide "smarter cuts", but Obama insisted on more tax increases instead.

Taxed Enough Already.

Starve the government beast.
