What did we put in the white house, when Obama tweets for himself he signs the tweet BO so you know it was really him.

I read one of the tweets from this story, "Breaks for middle class impt for families & econ. if top rates don't go up, danger that middle class deductions get hit - bo,"

So a Harvard professor does not have the intelligence to fit that sentence into a tweet.

Do you ever even think before you post? Obama says mortgage interest deductions could be threatened IF we don't end tax breaks for the rich. The pressure is on the Republicans, Tabby.

This keeps people's minds off of Benghazi though. Soon the investigation will begin in earnest and the Obama will hit the fan when it dies. That is just an unstoppable fact of nature.
Real history of what really happens in the real world (instead of rightwing fantasies): National debt was irrelevant to the collapse of Iceland. What melted down the Iceland economy was PRIVATE BANK DEBT set off by DEREGULATION.

"The 2008–2012 Icelandic financial crisis is a major economic and political crisis in Iceland that involved the collapse of all three of the country's major commercial banks following their difficulties in refinancing their short-term debt and a run on deposits in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Relative to the size of its economy, Iceland’s banking collapse is the largest suffered by any country in economic history.[1]
In late September 2008, it was announced that the Glitnir bank would be nationalised. The following week, control of Landsbanki and Glitnir was handed over to receivers appointed by the Financial Supervisory Authority (FME). Soon after that, the same organization placed Iceland's largest bank, Kaupthing, into receivership as well. Commenting on the need for emergency measures, Prime Minister Geir Haarde said on 6 October, "There [was] a very real danger ... that the Icelandic economy, in the worst case, could be sucked with the banks into the whirlpool and the result could have been national bankruptcy."[2] He also stated that the actions taken by the government had ensured that the Icelandic state would not actually go bankrupt.[3] At the end of the second quarter 2008, Iceland's external debt was 9.553 trillion Icelandic krónur (€50 billion), more than 80% of which was held by the banking sector.[4] This value compares with Iceland's 2007 gross domestic product of 1.293 trillion krónur (€8.5 billion).[5] The assets of the three banks taken under the control of the FME totaled 14.437 trillion krónur at the end of the second quarter 2008.[6]"

You need to quit eating BS.
What was Saddam's crime on the American public, worth 5000 dead American Troops?

It's not as if Saddam planned, and helped commit the murder of American Citizens in New York and Washington DC on Sept 11, 2001

What Obama and, in fact, most of the American Left seem to ignore is that the President neither has the mandate nor the power to make big sweeping changes to US fiscal policy in the days before the so-called fiscal cliff arrives. Yet the man is on Twitter pushing his socialist agenda, instead of getting down to the serious business of negotiating.

Why is he on Twitter? For the same reason Americans didn't reject his impotent "style over substance" agenda... Americans are ignorant and ill-informed. In the midst of the world's most important economic period, 6 million Americans voted for intellectual Jello and socialist rhetoric.

Well, now you have the President and Congress playing chicken with your future... Like two bull elephants locked in an epic battle.

There's an African saying that goes something like "when two elephants fight, it's the grass that always gets the worst of it".

In case you didn't get it... You're the grass folks... congratulations!

It's a simple matter of the Republicans holding up permanent tax cuts for 98% of American Middle Class income tax filers to gain the low rates for the wealthy in America.

It's a ruse to get the Wage Earners, Seniors and Disabled, in America to carry the debt burden the republicans created.

Picking the lowest hanging fruit.

The pressure is on Obama. He wants to go over the cliff. I say let him. Then he owns the consequences. We have no more money. Take away everything, and start over. We have had plenty of time to prepare. The government spent so much, if you took every penny from the rich, it would support the government less then 14 days. Democrats got what they wanted, now lets see what they can do. They are as clueless today as they ever were.

Not my rent, my landlord owns the place outright. I'd never rent from a landlord who has a mortgage. And my federal taxes shouldn't be subsidizing the housing choices of others.

Neither ending tax breaks for the rich nor ending the mortage interest deductions will put a meaningful dent into the national debt. This is pure nonpartisan fact. It's like squashing an ant in a room with three 800 pound elephants and declaring the room cleared out.
