As I listen to an analysis of the Fiscal Cliff Talks, I learn that (yet again) our POTUS is not interested in America, but rather in taking America off the cliff. You see, it is e best deal for "his" idealogy. He gets to increase taxs on everyone, reap the forced defense & benefit cuts, and add that savings to his planned $1T borrowing plan. Thus, have another pot to spend & give away.Kiling America's future even more...

It's a sd day in America...

In its present form, The sooner the United States Federal Government dissolves the safer you will be. If you like the last few decades you would have loved Germany in the 1930's. It is even easier to get away with anything now that a Black man is at the helm and even the left wing media goes along with the destruction of the Constitution.

What exactly is our POTUS trying to achieve by doing what he is attempting to do?

You are assuming that he has a plan. I submit that like Bush, he allows the legislative branch to create everything. This means that your corporate, foreign governments or whoever is the highest bidder in campaign finance writes the policy. The executive branch is voting present just like Obama did in Springfield. This is not a party issue ..it is a competence issue. The titanic is going down and Obamas only experience (like Bush) is that he saw the movie. We elected these guys so our death is self inflicted.

I really don't understand these right wing economic positions. BS is one thing but for them to be able to have such a strong following to their BS for so long is mind blowing.

-History and facts tell us that when rates are higher the country has done better
-History and facts tell us lower tax rates do not create jobs nor do they boost the economy
(I mean come on, we are currently living in a crisis while our tax rates have been the lowest in history for 10+ years!)
-History and facts tell us there is no such thing as trickle down

How is it that so many people believe the exact oposite of those facts even though they can provide absolutely no evidence to support their theories?? I just don't get it.

A) He "beats" Conservatives
B) He gets all the entitlement reduction money to spend
C) He gets all the defense reduction money to spend
D) He gets far more tax dollar revenue, so he can spend it
E) He can spend well over the $1T/yr he has been borrowing & spending each year
F) He gets to blame the Republicans!

He does not care about the country, our debt, nor middle class tax payers.

But what is trying to achieve? What goal does his ideology stand for? Does he have a personal selfish reasons for his ways or does he think his plan is best for the country long term?

He is destroying capitalism and democracy through spending and policy. WHY DO YOU THINK HE WANTS CONGRESS TO STEP ASIDE AND LET HIM BE THE SOLE DICTATOR OF SETTING THE DEBT CEILING? Obama is using class warfare against us so we negotiate our own suicide with him. Socialism is sold as compassion for the masses. But in reality it is the iron fist disguised as s white glove. Obamacare is a foot in the door towards socialism. Once that occurred, the ground rules are set for advancement. This is not a conspiracy theory, but rather the hash reality of what is happening to us.

Did you see the documentary on his life, based upon his personal writings & life experience, "2016 Love Him or Hate Him"?

IMO that explins what you are asking...

You & I grew up in America, exposed to American culture, values, beliefs, and principals. His life experiences taught him the very same points, but from an entirely different cultural view, and different set of values. My sense is that he "values" the ability to pull wealth from those who have it, with no conscience at all, to give it to those "he preceives" as deserving it". Thinking he really believes "you did not build that" kind of thing. Given he was mentored as a child by socialist/marxist/communist people assigned to him, of course his view & values are very different than a typical American raised in an American culture.

Well said. He is getting even with the Industrialized nations by destroying the ROGUE EVIL NATIONS OF ECONOMIC & MILITARY STRENGTHS. DESTROY OUR EXCEPTIONALISM TO PUT US ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD WITH THE WORLD. REALLY A SICK EVIL MAN. America will not be recognized after the next four years.

What is his goal? I dont want your opinion on what he is doing and wether it is wrong. People talk about socialism, and he is doing this and that. I want to know why you think he wants to do these things. What is he trying to achieve? No one will answer that.

He is doing what he promised and what America voted for. He has stated the Process of transforming America from a Capitalist Democracy to a Marxist Socialized nation. Obama is a dictator. Get it? Yes? No?

Dictators opress their constituents and promise the poor that they will get stuff. They will take form the wealthy and have government control industry and produst. The dictator arguement makes no sense. We have term limits. Its not like he is setting things up to be ruler for life. So what does he gain by doing the things people claim. What is his objective? Can anyone answer that questions without resorting to statements of what he is doing? I dont think so.

I hear you on that!

Obama is not at all a POTUS. If he were, he would work with both parties, and "represent" all people. He is playing win/lose on the Fiscal Cliff thing too. He is not an honorable person.
