You of course, like past democrats continue to let them build to point of endangering the world. Brilliant.

Yes indeed the tax hungry commander-in-thief and his useful idiots are out to get those who enjoy earning over $250,000 per year. Of course life is uncertain and those making over $250,000.00 have to deal with the fact that their income could stop dead in its tracks for a multitude of reasons and the money that went to obama could be the difference between paying the bills and going bankrupt.
In other words after the self-serving thief obama gets through taxing the over $250,000 crowd the idiots for obama will feel the pinch with higher costs and less money in their pockets. But the stupids can take comfort knowing obama’s upcoming vacation will cost the US Taxpayers over $5,000,000.00. It appears the vacationing good-times b. h. obama has no problem pissing on any and all taxpayers…Obviously he's the kind of arrogant filth who stuffs his face while others starve…what a turd.
So if obama has his marxist way why strive to make any more than $250,000 per year when the Rats will steal it from you? What an incentive that lowlife Rat b. h. obama is.
Attention PottieInLa, I'm a great admirer of your even-handed remarks.
Just a tip. Your endless use of vitriolic adjectives reveals your desperation, not your intelligence.

Because they relied on false information, knowingly spewed by Bush.

I am beginning to question this idea of a cliff. The way these D's and R's are acting is like they did in the mid to late 90 with Y2K.
I say do it. Go over the cliff. Screw it. Enough of the games. If we are going to take the hit, then stand proud take the shout across the jaw. Then we can pick ourselves back up without the help of the D's and R's who put us in this in the first place.

To try and explain to any of the dems., is such
a waste of time. One tract mind is a national
enemy now. They will only wake up when another
country take us over. We are weaker and more
stupid than we ever were. Wait until these next
four yrs. are over! The children of the stupid
will not thank you for what you left to them.
As if you ever gave that a thought. Its all
about you here and now. Spread hate and laugh.

Why do WE Americans have to sacrifice anything? Bill Clinton left Bush a surplus, he and the GOP squandered it. The Republicans ruined our country and created the deficit. THEY should do some sacrificing. Our politicians need to do some sacrificing. We, The People, HAVE done our share of giving things up. We are still suffering, and our selfish Gov't wants us to sacrifice some more???? How about $8.00 garbage cans in their offices, instead of $80.00? I've never paid $80.00 for a simple garbage can yet. What do they do with the rest of the money? Our Gov't can buy things from the Dollar store, for everyday items, like the rest of use. They can give up some their benefits, salaries, and entitlements. What's the deal with the PEOPLE always having to sacrifice?????

I wish you were correct. Obama is still talking about shared sacrifice. Why should the middle class, who bore the brunt of the rich making like bandits, have to pay again so the rich can steal more? There should not be shared sacrifice. Those who benefited greatly should pay the price of their recklessness. Those who suffered should not have to pay and pay and pay again.

We, the People, paid for the Bank Bailouts. We lost values in our homes, lost jobs, had to relocate, some emptied out their 401K's to survive. Where the heck is the sacrificing of our Gov't? When are they going to do some sacrificing. Our Gov't is not acting responsible enough. Let them take a pay cut. Until they do for the people, they deserve nothing. Why is it always us, not them, that must do the sacrificing?

I exaggerated. It was only a $13 trillion
deficit Bush left Obama,$8 trillion of which
he was responsible for.
Plus an economy losing 700,000 jobs per month.
Plus two unfinished wars.
Plus a 7.6% unemployment rate.
Plus the world's number one terrorist still
on the loose after letting him walk away
at Tora Bora.
More?
Wrong, Bush left a 5 trillion dollars deficit, we now stand at over 16 trilion. That leaves 11 trillion in Odumbo's lap. Do the math. The unemployment rate (minus the seasonal jobs for the holidays) is still over 10%, duh! Odumbo touts job creation at Christmas every year, and in early January, we back slide. C'mon!

Sarin Gas is a WMD and you need to prove al Qaeda wasn't in Iraq. I direct you to Sadar.

Obama did sacrafice, he gave up 8 golf outings and two vacations for appearnce purposes before the election. As soon as the children voted in record numbers, he went out to the course and planned a 4 million dollar 20 day vacation.

Obama needs a distraction. Maybe a union riot or a hole in one to take our minds off the cliff
