Beware of 'fiscal cliff' pessimism

Dec 28, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

To hear Hill staffers and top negotiators tell it, it's very likely that the country is headed over the "fiscal cliff." The last days of any high-stakes deadline situation in Congress are fraught with these kind of doomsday prophecies.

Benghazi scandal and cover up. It all comes back to that in the end. All this hub-bub over nothing means nothing. It's the cover up that will be remembered.

That Bush crap is old. He did his damage and this neophyte is making it worse. Stuck in his far left principles in a bad time. With people like you following party loyalty through all of the hoops at maximum speed. What we are doing now, we won't make it back. We are poorer. And we keep spending and keeping the ineficient parts going at full speed. The working class responsible has taking a fiscal beating as their meager wealth was used as collateral to keep the facade of normalcy alive. Stop paying for massive irresponsible behavior while charging others for minor infractions to bankruptcy is the first and most important step in getting us back to an even keel.

You gotta love H Reid. He HATES America as much as Comrade Pelosi. He will stop at nothing to divide us all into pitiful little street trash just for his own thuggish agenda.

Before Reid and Pelosi are done with American families, no decent American will even admit to BEING a "democrat" let alone voting for one of the heartless anarchists.

Obama's main accomplishments are taking vacations, campaigning, and accepting NO responsibility (Benghazi)-some one should tell him the campaign issues are over.

One last meeting at White House...
Expectations remain low...
'Cliff' looms... The one thing the MSM won't mention is that Obama has not met with the congressional leaders since Mid November. Too busy golfing and vacationing.

What you neglected to say was Bush had a Dem Congress (both House and Senate) and he got nothing passed thanks to the Dems. Put the blame where the blame belongs. As far as the conflicts we were in - the Dems voted on them - and Bush took the blame - Obama is slick as snot and takes blame for nothing. He has lied, thrown Rice under the bus and Hillary. Obama would not work with the Reps on this fiscal cliff - he went on vacation and before that he went on a campaign trail to a toy factory. He is useless. He wants us to go over the cliff. He wants to look like a good leader well that can never happen as long as he is thinking of himself instead of America.

The feminist, gay and minority movements have turned into a carnival. Have been for many years now. No one wants to admit to failures along with the successes. Common sense has turned into a witch hunt against injustices from other times. Stealing other mens wealth of equal means so others can live high off the hog even if considered impoverished is the law of the land. Working with men and women that is determined by group or background with a huge drop off in quality as percentages rule the day has gotten us to a middle of the road nation now. And we have to hire more people to do the same job with work rules skewered to make it look like everyone is equal. Remember there are evil people who do the elitist bidding on this forum. Use your brains.
