That doesn't make sense. Doing nothing would be to go along with Obama's proposal of taxing the rich which wouldn't even raise enough revenue to cover our interest on the debt. When things get real bad, Obama would own it as Bush owns the housing collapse even though both parties were responsible. Let Obama have his way and he would own the subsequent catastrophe. Clinton met the congress halfway and got good results. This bonehead won't budge indicating he would veto any bill that doesn't tax the rich.
Can you name who the speaker of the house was when the great depression hit? But, you know who Hoover is.
I can name who was in charge during the Great Depression. It wasn't the Democrats. If Republicans obstruct the way out this mess, future generations may not remember the name of John Boehner, but they sure will remember his party.

The plain facts are these:
- Republican obstruction would result in higher taxes for 98% of Americans. Who do you think would get the blame?
- Most Americans (including most Republicans) favor ending the tax break for the top 2%.
- Obama holds the winning hand, while Boehner and his mob are holding their peckers.

If the Republicans were to back off and do nothing, it is they who would own the problem.
They are also strongly in favor like 60% that Obama does entitlement reforms and Obama has done none. That is what the Republicans are asking for and all Obama is promising is new taxes. Obama wants to tax and spend us into oblivion. He thinks that wealth redistribution will make things better whereas all it is a de-incentive for the people who make the wealth. I mean why would I work for ungrateful people I don't know that can work for themselves. BTW, the Republicans said they are willing to increase the taxes on the rich by using deductions and not the rate. YOu know the rich still pay more without feeling they are getting soaked, i.e. no de-incentive.

Sure you can see your voters and your message and MSM message of hate. They certainly know all the negative press about Palin put out by the MSM because IMO that is the only message of the liberal left which is hate. They knew nothing about Obama and his background. Yep, the dumbing down of America is so true for the left as shown by this video.

Without the help of the Liberals? Shoot do you listen to the MSM and the lavish praise / adoration of Obama? Heck it was the liberal MSM that got Obama in the first place. From their assistance of covering up of Benghazi until after the election where 4 Americans died to their attacking a disabled woman because she used horse therapy to help treat her medical condition.

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2012/08/r...

"Mitt Romney's favorability ratings were on the upswing ever since he locked down the Republican nomination in April, but there are growing signs that a torrent of negative attacks from President Obama and his Democratic allies have affected voter impressions of the GOP hopeful.

The latest indication of that slide came Thursday with the release of a CNN/Opinion Research poll that showed Romney's favorable/unfavorable split going from 48/42 percent last month to 47/48 now.

The president, meanwhile, is viewed favorably by 56 percent of respondents, while 42 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him.

A good deal of the criticism directed at Romney by Democrats has centered on his business experience and personal wealth, including his refusal to release additional years of tax returns. That strategy, aimed at undercutting his standing with middle-class Americans, appears to have had some success.

Sixty-four percent of voters said they thought Romney generally favored the rich over the middle class or poor. Forty-two percent of respondents said Mr. Obama favored the middle class, and 34 percent said he tilted toward the poor.

The president holds a 52 percent to 45 percent lead over Romney among registered voters nationally, according to the survey. But when respondents were asked who they thought would win in November, regardless of their personal preference, 63 percent picked the president, while 33 percent named Romney."

BASICALLY IT WAS OBAMA'S NEGATIVE STORY LINE AND THE PRESS' UN-QUESTIONING AND UNENDING REPEATING OF THE NEGATIVE STORY LINE THAT AIDED IN HIS WIN AS IT DID IN 2008. ASK STEPHANIE CUTTER IF THAT IS NOT TRUE AS SHE IS NOW DOING A REPEAT PERFORMANCE FOR THE FISCAL CLIFF. OBAMA AND CUTTER CARE LESS ABOUT AMERICA - JUST THAT THEY WIN, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES THEY HAVE TO LIE FOR THEIR ADORING PRESS SHILLS.

Well if Obama is such a great leader, speaker and negotiator, he should put the whole negotiations on TV for all to see. You know make his liberal children proud. Remember, they work for us. What's all this back room hooey. Obama said he would be the most transparent ever. Let’s let him prove it.

Republican obstruction to what? What is the democrat plan? Senate democrats rejected Obama's plan.

Higher taxes for 98% of Americans. I'm glad you acknowledge everyone got a tax break under Bush. What favored the rich was the deductions and loopholes. I don't think anyone is against closing loopholes other than the bonehead-in-chief.

The president always gets the blame. They're still blaming Bush four years later.

That is where the liberals are wrong. Just the media and their liberal slaves are the Obamanation, not the rest of America. Obama's arrogance believes he can shove anything down other American's throats because he wants to do it like he did with OBamacare. Obama does not care how much it hurts other Americans, just what he want is all that counts. In other words, if he really care about other Americans, then he would negotiate in good conscience instead instead of playing his continued dirty pool of lies and deception, IMO.

Don't encourage them.:-) I think that's what they're shooting for.

Someone should tell Obama a large part of the defense budget is civilian employees right down to the pot scrubber in the mess hall. I believe the Pentagon threatened to lay off employees when congress threatened to de-fund the Iraq war. Now, all of a sudden it's a good thing.

Yeah, Clinton could see the writing on the wall and did not hate America like it appears that Obama does. Obama instead of negotiating goes further left and tries arrogantly for the complete destruction of the middle class. You know some people believe that is his ultimate goal in his take down of America. Destroying America without a shot.
