I guess that you don't know the latest. OBAMA WANT TO GO OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF SO HE CAN BLAME IT ON THE REPUBLICANS.
"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s administration is “absolutely” willing to go off the so-called fiscal cliff if Republicans refuse to increase taxes on the nation’s top earners.
During an interview with CNBC, Geithner was asked if the White House was willing to dive off the cliff if Republicans don’t accept a deal that raise tax rates for those making more than $250,000.
“Oh, absolutely," he responded. "Again, there's no prospect in an agreement that doesn't involve the rates going up on the top 2 percent of the wealthiest."
Geithner’s comments offer the strongest indication that Obama would accept the automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that kick in if an agreement is not reached before the Dec. 31 deadline."

In other words, Obama gives a sh*t about you and me or other Americans. It is one big game for him and his fellow Democrats to get the Republicans. IMHO, he does not care about the damage it does to America as he is doing it for political gain.

On the Senate floor this afternoon, minority leader Mitch McConnell asked for a vote on President Obama’s craptastic proposal for averting the fiscal cliff. Harry Reid swiftly shot him down:

Reid’s own little stunt proved McConnell’s point: that the president’s proposal is lousy.

Yes, but I am concern his idea of leading is not the traditional idea of leading.
It isn't, it never was his intent to lead traditionally. When he promised change he meant it, just not the kind of change many expected out of him. They thought he'd help get us out of the mess we're in and he has no intention of doing that. He wants the fiscal cliff to happen, and he will then of course blame it on the republicans and his dumb followers will still not see through the man, they will continue to follow him cause he gives them what they want, to live off the dole of the governmnet and as long as he does that, they love him! He is taking our Country down, and the problem is that we that didn't vote for him are all going down too. With his holier than thou attitude he has no intention of giving at all, it's his way or no way so things aren't going to be any different than they were before, instead they will be worse. I just hope those of you that did vote him a second time are happy with what you got.

No, you were right to politicize it. The Sunshine Patriots that wave the flag but are afraid to defend it, are overwhelmingly Republicans. Four deferment Romney wanted to start a war with Iran. Think any of his five sons are signing up?

Here, I'll let your Republican retarded senate candidate from Missouri explain it to you....

He said,“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Victims of “legitimate rape” very rarely get pregnant because their bodies prevent them from doing so...

He lost the election. Can't imagine why, can you?

FFS was referring to people on the right questioning the patriotism of people on the left. I don't think patriotism is questioned. The politics are questioned. Both sides want what's good for America, just different opinions on how to get there or what the good actually is.

Sure can Micro, People don't respect one another. You can't explain it.. Isn't that a hoot, you are as ignorant as he is? Doesn't surprise me, you are a child of the seventies. All talk and ignorant as a door post.

That's funny. I wonder if there were any reprimands for this one.

I like the one with the words, GOT OIL?, painted on the side of an invading tank in Iraq.:-) I can't find that one anymore.
