The country is going over the cliff while Obama is basking in the sun, golfing, surfing at his multi million dollar beachfront mansion in Hawaii on the taxpayer's dime!

We have no working congress, what else do you expect the president to do? If he took out his pen and starting writing his own laws without congress, we'd accuse him of being a dictator. He's given congress a chance to work this out with him, they won't.

The entire 112h Congressional vacations will not cost us as much as President Obama, his wife, his mother in law, and his children in Hawaii. Obama wanted the country over the cliff. The Democrts planned it that way. Nothing Boehner could offer them would keep from a disaster. Lieberman is admitting this mornng nothing an be done to stop it. I am glad the Republicans held the line on spending, and kept their principles. Democrats have no principles, values, or morals.

as the hard core in the house stand on their sacred "principles" we go over the cliff
Your 'Principles' will be paid for by the entire nation.
the voters will blame the GOP speeding up that party's electoral demise.

Yet another unpopular exersize by a radical minority
The only hope is that the GOP reps. who are home for Christmas get reminded that they are supposed to serve the nation not some so called principle that already have been sold out.

Go over the cliff, the potilicians win, the Conservatives get spending cuts, the Democrats get tax increases. Don't worry, somehow we will find a way to service the debt, meaning financers, both sovergn and private, will win.
The American public looses, less government services for a bigger tax bill.
The net result is a transfer of fund to creditors!
Since most of the public jumps on one political bandwagon or another they can claim their side won, and be happy.

Remember: "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing."

487 days at Camp David

490 days at his "ranch" in Crawford.

43 days at Kennebunkport.

1020 days total, 1/3 of his presidency.

You were saying?
