LOL! The liberals are worried about the political fights? That's a hoot. They should be more worried that their crazy ideas might get passed. Cause there's no f*cking way they'll actually work and NOBODY is going to accept another four years of Obama's blame shifting and excuses.

Liberalism will now have to confront its REAL enemy: reality. Sh*t is never going to be free, no matter how many clueless air-heads voted for it. Just ask Europe, which is sinking into recession (again).

I’m not worried… I am looking forward to the battles to come. I remember how the right threw everything they had at OBAMACARE, even a bunch of unpatriotic tea-baggers marching on Congress, and we still won. President Obama got what he wanted. Susan Rice will be nominated… and she will be confirmed; Obama will get taxes raised on the rich and he will get at least 3 more justices added to the Supreme Court.

Obama always wins; 2008 and 2012 proves it, LOL!

I wonder if Boehnor and Cantor are going to hold the middle class tax cuts hostage unless the rich 1% get a tax cut as well the same way they held our payroll tax cuts hostage. It's time to fire Boehnor. This will be an interesting fight.

They don't have to hold anything hostage. If the President is ready to lead he'll have an acceptable compromise ready to go when Congress returns to session after the holiday.

Of course, according to Article 1; Section 7 of the US Constitution, all spending bills originate in the House- If the GOP controlled house doesn't want to fund the Affordable Care Act, they don't have to. Plenty of programs/laws go unfunded every year. No money; no implementation.

It seems to me the rich are the ones being discriminated against.....why shouldn't everyone have the same tax rate !!!!! Just because you take a risk,hire people ,stay up at nights worrying about policies that effect the people that work for you...worry about making payroll,worry about the economy,and if you are going to be able to sell the products you hire people to fabricate or assemble..and then on top ,worry about paying more taxes if you somehow manage to succeed ...its crazy....just because people choose to go to work ,work an honest days living,and not worry about running a business ,and the hardships that come with it,does not mean ,they should pay less in taxes then the man that takes all the risks and may actually turn a little profit for his effort !!!! It seems Sad to me

MCP has a great point. Obama was given carte blanche to continue his leadership to one world order. Susan Rice and the UN will help guide our way. Without the distractions of re-election, he will work tirelessly to bring the world economy forward. The rich will finally pay their share.

Great post. Too bad it's not funny though. America is doomed - DOOMED.

Obama's father's dream was destroy America - It's happening.

Unemployment will be like Spain's is now - around 25%- within a couple of years (maybe less). It's all down hill from there.

The Constitution and Private property/private property rights will be GONE within a decade. Tell me how they won't be gone after Obama drives America bankrupt? Failure is the plan.

I could see right through Obama since 2007...How can so many be so clueless...?

That's amazing coming from anyone living in New Mexico. New Mexico is the parasite State of the West. 40% of the workforce in New Mexico pay no Federal Income Taxes, and at Income Tax time receive poverty payments disguised as income tax returns.

Those mythical tax returns are simply yearly Welfare Payments. The sad reality is that all of the people on the dole receiving those poverty payments don't see this as Government give away largess.

When you mention moocher and leeches living on the dole, People like yourself, are the first to suggest we aren't talking about you....

That was your forecast for Obama in 2012, back in 2008.

The only thing it proves is that the majority of the idiots were on the same side. Just like the ones that elected Fidel, Hugo and Hitler.
