Analysis: Democrats' discord undercuts Obama estate tax push

Nov 30, 2012 Full story: Reuters 36

Divisions among Democrats are undermining President Barack Obama's push to raise the U.S. estate tax on inherited wealth, just weeks before the arrival of the "fiscal cliff" could drive the present estate tax rate even higher than Obama proposes.

Somebody, a Muslim probably, must own Obama. I wonder who it is? Either Obama was paid or was blackmailed to make a huge fool of himself over the lie of a movie and a mob in Benghazi. It was all designed to make America look bad while making Muslims look like victims. But lying makes Obama look like a big stupid untrustworthy fool. He either got paid a lot of money or Obama did something really bad that someone holds over his head.
There really is no other plausible explanation. Unless he's just insane

I wonder how mush Obama got paid? Was it worth it? I bet Susan Rice and Bill Clinton got paid to let Bi Laden go. That was in 1998 when the CIA wanted to whack Bin Laden and Clinton and Rice said let the sleazeball go. I wonder how much Clinton and Rice made on that one. I bet Bin Laden gave more than 50 million to Clinton to get out of that mess. I know Rice has ever 20 million bucks. Where did she get that kind of loot. Know what I'm sayin'?
Benghazi is almost a carbon copy of that.

(R) tom coburn totaled up all the federal money for millionaires over several years that his office could find. Among the handouts for the well-heeled are:
$18.15 million in child care tax credits
$74 million in unemployment checks
$89 million for preservation of ranches and estates
$316 million in farm subsidies
$608 million in business entertainment deductions
$9 billion in retirement checks
$21 billion in gambling losses
$28 billion in mortgage breaks for mansions, vacation homes and yachts

poor, poor, con-nie.

Obama is in a pickle. He is playing chicken in a Volt and he doesnít have any juice. If the Republicans walk because Obama will not offer cuts, then the cliff is what Obama wants and what his voters get. When the tax cuts expire, all of Obama's voter base will get a tax increase. I can hear the squeals and the gnashing of teeth already. Let's go people, call your congressman and tell them to get behind the bus and push this clown and his stupidity off the cliff. Maybe his arrogance will go with him.

If the Repubs walk and we go over the fiscal cliff, guess who the general population is going to blame? GOP. Four more years of teabag tears.

The very people that voted for him. Karma. The tax cuts will go away and since they were across the board, everyone from poor to rich will get a tax increase along with other benefits that will go away. Me and mine will be fine, but the Obama voters are going to find their box of candy is getting much smaller. When the taxes go up, it will be Obama's fault, the NEW recession will be his fault and the two million more people that will be unemployed will also owe their grief to Obama. His legacy of failure will over shadow Carterís by trillions.

Obama, he is refusing to come to the table and do what he promised. Shock shock. The cliff is real, and Obama is driving. He can lead or he can be a crash dummy. Either way the destiny of America will be better after everyone has some skin in the game.

With the exception New Mexico, the ten poorest (HIGHEST WELFARE) states all voted for Romney. So much for out of touch Mitten's nitwit theory about losing due to "gifts from Obama."
1. Mississippi
2. West Virginia
3. Arkansas
4. Kentucky
5. Alabama
6. Tennessee
7. Louisiana
8. New Mexico (Blue)
9. South Carolina
10. Oklahoma


Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).
Maryland $67,469
New Hampshire $67,287
Connecticut $67,165
New Jersey $65,072
Massachusetts $62,809
Virginia $62,776



The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.

Some children are really upset that the world didn't drop millions in gold on their doorstep on November 7th. All they get is a tax increase when Obama drives us off the cliff.

We already know, no matter what the republicans do, Obama will do what he did last time. that he got the Speaker to cave. He will then move the goal post or pull up the football like Lucy always does to Charlie Brown, blame the republicans and then drive on off the cliff.

When you have a voting public that believe that republicans want to repo their vagina's and keep them from killing babies then you have to wonder what they won't believe. Indocrtination works.

If we are going off the cliff anyway and are going to get the blame anyway, lets let Obama drive off the cliff, then when the liberals and children that voted for candy get their taxes raised, they will finally become part of america and have some skin in the game.

Increase all taxation of the wealthy. Wealthy Dems need to accept and endorse this, not get in the way.

We must stop the irresponsible Teabaggers and GOPers from driving this country over a fiscal cliff, no matter what it takes.

No matter what.
