It is all about perception:

If balancing the budget and increasing taxes is viewed as a CLIFF, people get nervous about their futures.

If balancing the budget and increasing taxes is viewed as RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT, people could again have CONFIDENCE that their country is moving in the right direction.

All this traveling around the country by this President is spending money on airline fuel and other costs of operations, that could be put to better use.

Obama has no concept of how NOT to waste money.

He is spending government money like a drunken sailor.

He is stuck in campaign mold. Ayers and Soros told him that's all he would have to do, Jarrret would handle the rest.

It tells us we were wrong in so many ways. We felt the people of America would vote against high unemployment, want a stronger economy with Jobs, a stronger future for their children and grandchildren and spendable income, but all they wanted was more candy and free stuff. Entitlement won.

At $181 THOUSAND dollars an hour, you'd think he'd use a little discretion when choosing to fly all over the darn place on the taxpayers dime.

Obama wants us to go over the cliff so he can blame the Reps - won't happen since he is NOT WORKING with the Reps. The people of America are not stupid they realize he is not staying at the WH to work - he is still playing "ROCK STAR".

Nothing feeds Obama's monumental Ego more than pandering to a Greedy, selfish Union Mob screaming for more and more and more of some one else's hard earned Money.

Today's staged Union Rally in Michigan was magical to all who wish Americans to submit their families to a Cuban style Collectivist future in service to The Obama.
