Barack Obama, our next President

TUCKER CARLSON AND NEIL PATEL: Congress should dive headlong off fiscal cliff

Everyone in Washington fears the fiscal cliff. The White House has no interest in going over. Democrats understand they’ll never have more power than they do now. Delaying a budget deal until after January means getting less of what they want.

Republican leaders, meanwhile, live in fear of another 1995 government shutdown. When two sides fail to reach a deal, the media blame Republicans. That’s the lesson Republicans learned 17 years ago. They shudder imagining the headlines if negotiations were to break down next month:“Norquist-controlled GOP forces America off cliff.” Nothing terrifies them more than that. They’ll do anything to avoid it, as Obama knows well.(Hence his advantage.)

Here is the mandate of FEMA:
While on-the-ground support of disaster recovery efforts is a major part of FEMA's charter, the agency provides state and local governments with experts in specialized fields and funding for rebuilding efforts and relief funds for infrastructure by directing individuals to access low interest loans, in conjunction with the Small Business Administration. In addition to this, FEMA provides funds for training of response personnel throughout the United States and its territories as part of the agency's preparedness effort.
Sure sounds a lot like "They organize and oversee the recovery effort".

How stupid can you get? Trying for a record?

the 'necessary' is very much open for debate. right wing talking points with nothing to back them up don't really impress.
but hell, i'm starting to be of a mind that we just go over the cliff. just cut the spending where it really needs to be cut. raise those taxes for everyone. then Obama can sit back, point at the GOP, say it was their fault, and he won't be wrong.
In the name of "balance," Oblamer asked Congress to pass a bill with tax increases but no spending cuts. Then he claimed that doing so would make it "a whole lot easier" to deal with deficit reduction later.
Another brilliant Oblamer idea.
Yeah

Some on the left are suggesting that Obama adopt a strategy of confrontation and conquest. Reject the Grand Bargain approach. Take the country over the fiscal cliff and blame it on the Republicans.
Obama could probably triumph in pushing higher tax rates on the rich that wouldn’t even produce enough revenue to cover a tenth of the deficit.
But he’d sow such bitterness that it would be the last thing he’d pass for the rest of his term.
The person who wrote this, David Brooks, should have stopped there. It's all there is to say.
"...higher taxes wouldn't even produce enough revenue to cover a tenth of the deficit."
lol! Why should Obama do what cons have already rejected regarding the "Grand Bargain?"

The Democrats are working this like a sleezy scam artist. They know if Republicans take a stand against this nonsense, they will be blamed by liberals. They also know that if Republicans cave or walk away, they will possibly be blamed by other republicans.
They're counting on not wasting this continuing and ongoing crisis so they can come out smelling like roses to the easily fooled even though they caused it themselves and can blame someone else another four years.
It's what weasels do.
But a big part of me agrees with you. However, if republicans walk away to leave no fingerprints, they need to get in front of any camera they see for the next four years and make it crystal clear to the American public they went along with what the majority wanted AGAINST their advise and better judgment.
They also need to repeat a much better plan ad nauseum.
If they do both of these things, they cannot be blamed.
You did not jump when Mitt lost.
Fox said Mitt would win.

more hypocrisy.

Pharma got exactly what it wanted from Paul Ryan and his Congressional colleagues in 2003 when George Bush pushed Medicare Part D through the House by a single vote. The drug industry was so thrilled that they immediately appointed the Louisiana Congressman who ramrodded the Part D legislation, Bill Joe Tauzin, as PhRMA president with a $2 million annual salary.

if you want to talk about kissing up to and selling out to BIG PHARMA, you should check into the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003. Now that was a huge sellout starting with the cost to the taxpayer.

hasn't he asked the GOP for their plan?

so where is it? let's see the spending cuts they want to make. or is there a reason they don't want to make the first offer on cuts? public opinion? but how can that be? aren't they the 'voice' of the American people?

Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current two-term President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office.

He was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first Democrat since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote.

Sounds like FEMA is doing a good job of turning middle-class homeowners into welfare residents of homeless shelters.
