NYT Reporter: The White House is “So Much Cockier Right Now”

I can’t say I’m totally surprised by New York Times columnist Helene Cooper’s comments on Meet the Press this morning.
So cocky, in fact, that the president delivered (via his Treasury Secretary) a laughable and preposterous “compromise” to avert the looming “fiscal cliff”. Meanwhile, the White House continues to maintain that they will not negotiate with the opposition party -- unless, of course, Republicans agree to raise taxes on “the wealthy,” which the GOP leadership did. But if the nation goes cliff diving, as some liberals are all-too-eager to let happen -- there will be another recession -- and unemployment, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, will skyrocket. Earlier I noted that there are some benefits to the country going over the cliff (i.e., immediate spending cuts), but such positives are clearly outweighed by the problems a recession could cause. Thus, perhaps the president should learn some humility, because if the “fiscal cliff” talks fail, nothing could harm his presidential legacy more than four more years of economic stagnation.

He's an arrogant, pompous fool. He will go down as one of the worst presidents ever.
