Obama’s dare to the GOP

Obama’s dare to the GOP

There are 23 comments on the www.salon.com story from Feb 6, 2013, titled Obama’s dare to the GOP. In it, www.salon.com reports that:

while refusing Obama's balanced deal might harm the economy and hurt the party’s overall national image, it would help protect members individually from conservative primary challenges

If Republicans ever take him up on his grand bargain offer, it could unleash chaos among Democrats

President Obama’s challenge to congressional Republicans to join with him in crafting legislation to delay the sequester puts the GOP in a tough spot. But it’s not impossible it’ll end up doing the same to Democrats too.

It's a real tragedy that Prez Obama hates Americans' who don't agree with him more than he Hates Americas enemies around the World. What a freak! How did we mentally, emotionally, and intellectually deteriorate to the point where He was considered worthy of any adult American's respect, let alone their Votes? How sad for our children.

Obama new tactics of blaming the GOP for his out of control spending is the new way to destroy the GOP and make Obama the new naked Emperor of America. Obama loves to spend as much of your money as possible to buy his liberal parasitic base votes and stay in power. Money is political power and spending your money to buy votes and influence is Obama's plan for American people for the next four years. Clearly, Obama proved to be drunken sailor who cannot care less about tomorrow and desire to be Santa Claus’ who continue to increase his free Obama food stamps, free Obama healthcare and free Obama mortgage and student loans to his liberal parasitic base which is the one thing that keep him in power. Nevertheless, Obama is continue to push America over the cliff with addiction to spending including spending on arming his Mozlem Brother friend Morsi in Egypt with 16 F-16 and 200 Abrams tanks paid by the American people. Obama will spend to appease his liberal base and on Federal union employees who earn twice the salaries of other Americans until America will go broke and bankrupted and nobody will continue to print more money or lend more money to Obama. Why would any American agree to out of control spending on foreign Mozlem Brother regimes and on willingly unemployed, willingly disabled, millions of illegal invaders and those who do not want to pay taxes which are addicted Obama voters that dependent on Obama checks for lifetime? Is GOP still a party or bunch of losers that lost their bearings?

Um. Jeff, that "out of control spending" is to recover the economy from the Great Bush Recession?

Did you forget that GW took a nation with a SURPLUS left him by President Clinton, and squeezed the US Treasury until it was empty, and then paid US employers to export our jobs with tax breaks, then cut taxes and ran TWO WARS on borrowing?

Huh, Jeff?

The "parasitic base" is those people paying huge dollars to keep the GOP in the senate, so they can avoid paying their proper taxes, Jeff.

But people like you aren't parasites, Jeff, you are a dupe.

As long as the Fourth Estate colludes with Obama and his Orwellian Squad of Anti American Freaks we will face a dismal future as tax slaves to Big Brother.
Principled Americans didn't stand up and vote in our children's best interests. Now our Country must pay by losing more and more of our personal freedoms.

But who are the "real Americans?"

People who can't see the forest for the trees, or people like you who know that Obama, and the "media," and the "supreme court" are all owned, lock, stock, and barrel by that 2% super-wealthy we keep hearing about?

OR, are the 2%% the REAL MERICANSD, and the rest of us dim shlubs?

The was NO surplus left by clinton...another gullible fairytail believed by the left. A "projected" lie based on the dot.com industry that busted right after the clown left office. More dems in congress AND obama's cabinet have been charged with tax evasion.

Congress..both the house and senate approved actions in Iraq and Aghanistan, bozo. Thereby approving the funding.

You're a pathetic liar.

Almost right, but that surplus was real, and was squandered by Newt's 'contract with America' congress, which voted huge tax cuts for the wealthy.

And the economy did crash right after the election, but not from 'dot com,' which was pumping....but it crashed on the occasion of George W Bush's very first speech after the election, as president elect.

Bush went out on his front porch, and told the assembled reporters that unless he got his "CAPITAL GAINS TAX CUT' and his roll back on ESTATE TAX (he calls it 'death tax') THE ECONOMY WILL CRASH, BIG.

And the VERY next day, the economy did cras.
ThaT WAS HIS FIRST CRASH, BUT NOT his BIG crash, which came 7 years later.

And concerning Iraq, you are amost right again.
BUT, the Democrats in congress did not "...approved actions in Iraq and Aghanistan,..." at all.

Here is the truth, mark it well:
Yes the congress did approve military action againrt Afghanistan. That's where the Taliban were sheltering Osama Bin Laden,(remember him?)

No, the congress DID NOT approve military action agains Saddaam in Iraq.
Now, this is subtle, so let me take you through it...
The congress, needing to prove to Saddaam that we were united as a country against his shenanigans; (Sadaam was thinking yo exploit the differences between the Dems in congreess, and the REPs in the White House; the congress voted approval to show Sadda we were united as a country against him.
Then, early one morning, cruise missiles are tearing up Baghdad, Bush's shoch and awe.

Being now engaged in a hot war, the congress had to go along.

You are pretty sharp. Learn your history.

Imagine a corporation suffering losses and being deep in debt. In order to boost its stock prices and the bonuses of its officers, the corporation quietly borrows funds in the bond market and uses them not only to cover its losses but also to retire some corporate stock and thereby bid up its price. And imagine the management boasting of profits and surpluses. But that's what the Clinton Administration has been doing with alacrity and brazenness. It suffers sizeable budget deficits, increasing the national debt by hundreds of billions of dollars, but uses trust funds to meet expenditures and then boasts of surpluses which excites the spending predilection of politicians in both parties...

The surplus deception is clearly discernible in the statistics of national debt. While the spenders are boasting about surpluses, the national debt is rising year after year. In 1998, the first year of the legerdemain surplus, it rose from $5.413 trillion to $5.526 trillion, due to a deficit of $112.9 billion. Since then it has risen to $5.643 trillion today, October 15, 2000, with another deficit of $117 billion.

Clinton was a fake and a liar, proven by many. The ones who fell for it such as yourself is proven gullible.

Bush warend unless fannie freddie is controled, there will be a crash, all attempts were blocked by dodd and frank.

The Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002, Pub.L. 107–243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing military action against Iraq.

Clinton and his Carville-led team of liars derisively referred to it as the "Contract on America." The proposals were staples of Republican philosophy; small government, de-regulation, lowering taxes, and a pro-business environment. Issues such as tort reform, illegal immigration and a popular call for term limits caught fire with the public. The Republicans swept to historic majorities in the House and Senate.

that's about it....Gingrich's contract causing the financial problems is about as truthful as the lefts claim of Bush's ranch in Paraguay! Have you guys found it yet??
