It's all Soros and Ayers could teach him. It's Jarrett's job to be president. That's why she got security when Chris Stevens couldn't get it.

US sending 20 more F-16s to Egypt, despite turmoil in Cairo
By Maxim Lott
Published December 10, 2012

Instability in Egypt, where a newly-elected Islamic government teeters over an angry population, isn't enough to stop the U.S. from sending more than 20 F-16 fighter jets, as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package.
The first four jets are to be delivered to Egypt beginning Jan. 22, a source at the naval air base in Fort Worth, where the planes have been undergoing testing, told FoxNews.com . The North African nation already has a fleet of more than 200 of the planes and the latest shipment merely fulfills an order placed two years ago. But given the uncertainty in Cairo, some critics wonder if it is wise to be sending more top gun planes.
“Should an overreaction [by Egypt] spiral into a broader conflict between Egypt and Israel, such a scenario would put U.S. officials in an embarrassing position of having supplied massive amounts of military hardware … to both belligerents,” said Malou Innocent, a foreign policy analyst at the Cato Institute.“Given Washington's fiscal woes, American taxpayers should no longer be Egypt’s major arms supplier.”

“Given Washington's fiscal woes, American taxpayers should no longer be Egypt’s major arms supplier.”

- Malou Innocent, the Cato Institute

The U.S. government ordered and paid for the fighter jets for Egypt's military as part of foreign aid for Egypt back in 2010, when Hosni Mubarak ruled. The fighter jets were supposed to be delivered in 2013, and delivery will go ahead as scheduled even though Hosni Mubarak has been removed from power and replaced by Mohamed Morsi, who led the Muslim Brotherhood before becoming Egypt's president.

The Democrats in Nov 2012 won a combined 500,000 more votes than the republicans in the House of Representatives, Gerrymandering helped retain the house for the Republicans. The Republicans loss seats in the House and Senate not to mention at the top of the ticket President Obama won a convincing landslide Electoral College Victory and attained for the second time more than 50% of the votes cast become one of only four American Presidents to have done so in a second campaign.

75 Percent of President's Proposed Tax Hikes to Go Toward New Spending...In other words, the extra taxes are just to buy votes.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday Democrats aren't going to make an offer on spending cuts for Republicans and that it will be hard to reach a "fiscal cliff" deal before Christmas. SAME PLOY THEY USED LAST YEAR, put nothing on the table themselves, but blames republicans for not dropping their pants. Only the children would fall for the Obama two step.

Not quite right.
The fiscal cliff was built by our Congress. It was both parties, for different reasons not doing their job.
(And how/when did representation become a job? Was it the legalization of PACs?)
The credit down-grade is wholly owned by the Democrats. It's the response to Obama's unbridled spending.
He and his party have cost every man,woman and child over $3000 per year since Obama took office.
That is not a legacy I would be proud of. That's why you never hear it mentioned.

You hear about taxing the rich, but you don't hear we already owe more than $10k per citizen than when he started his campaign of give-always.

Obam says "Trust me".
I don't.
That lying sack of black stinky can shove it back where it came from. The idiot in chief is STILL campaigning - Sorry Obismal - NOT BUYING YOUR STINKING LOAD of CLASS Warfare.
Call your congressperson and let him know that the cliff is better than what the traitor in chief wants - Obama won't be satisfied until the US economy is competely destroyed.
Obama has already put the US deeper into debt than ALL PRESIDENTS IN US HISTORY COMBINED.
The US is screwed, but I hope that the brain dead morons who voted for that GD SOB traitor hurt the most, and likely they will be once their welfare check for a month won't buy a slice of bread.

You saying it just proves otherwise. You have nothing to back up Obama with his cowardice during Benghazi and his flying in circles still campaigning. Tell the boy to land and face congress as a man. Let's see his list of all the cuts he has proposed to the Speaker. Why isn't Harry Reid doing his job instead of also spouting lies from his podium. You clowns play all the games you want. I want the cliff. Obama will own it.

This is all to do with nothing. The sequester cuts 1.2 Trillion in spending, and the Bush Tax Cuts are designed to expire. There was no problem with the Budget Control Act proposed by the Republicans that saw the elimination of 600,000 public services workers across America and the nation survived, there's not going to be any problem cutting 600 Billion from Defense and eliminating some of the contractors profiting from American wars.

I don't see much that can be more fair than balance cutting across the board as the law is now written. That and the dismantling of the Bush Medicare Prescription Plan that doesn't allow the Government to negotiate pricing and America should be back on track to prosperity as we were under Bill Clinton.

Politicians that don't want a tax cut for the American middle class today, will have a change of heart Jan 2, 2013.

If you were not a coward, you would have been front and center facing off with those unions protesting yesterday stating your exact opposition, but you rather post those sentiments here under the cloak of secrecy.

The Guy from Fox baited the gentlemen and he served the Fox contributor rather well. At least he didn't take the Tea Party approach and spit on the guy.

Sure, nothing was wrong, that's why America's credit rating has gone down twice. You morons need to quit listening to the MSM propaganda before it's too late for all of us.
