Alright! Some good ole fashioned cut and paste.
You're a little behind though. Since it will happen, the GOP line is "So what, It ain't so bad"
Be careful here, IF Obama tuns out to be right that is is a bad idea, then you'll have to give him credit for being right about something.

Why are you babbling about now. Of course it's not bad. It's 2% of an Increase, not 2% of the budget and plus it's over 10 years which means it's about 266 dollars a person in America. Get a grip boy. Obama proposed it and then when the Republicans finally stood pat, Obama tried to blame them.

Doesn't matter waht the vote was... it was the Big O's idea... now that the hens have come home to roost...he blames it on someone else. What people do not say is that the republicans agreed to the big O's orginal compromise.. then the Big O moved the goal posts. There was a bipartisan agreement in place then the big demanded $400 billion in revenues beyond what was had already agreed to. So congress had the nerve to to say enough is enough
This is sort of like a teenager ( the president) who was allowed to make up his own punishment by his parents (congress). When the punishment was agreed to all the sudden the teen wants to change it. The parents, being good p arents, say no you must abide by your agreement. Now the petulant teen is crying foul on being made to keep his word.

It does matter what the vote was and it matters why the vote was and it matters who the vote was, and most important: it matters WHEN the vote was, and the vote was a year and a half ago and was not supposed to EVER kick in, that it was a CONGRESS bill and they have been sitting on their big fat azzes for 18 months.

PAY ATTENTION.

Wrong... they presented a proposal to the big O... then the big O moved the goal posts on them... wanted more tax hikes.... then congress did the right thing..... said fine we will go with what you proposed in the first place.

You can stomp your feet all you like.

CONGRESS passed the CONGRESSIONAL bill EIGHTEEN MONTHS ago.

And the bill had OVERWHELMING Republican support- pushed for by Boner himself.

EIGHTEEN MONTHS.

You may misunderstand my position. I am not saying I know what happened. I am saying I don't know and I have not seen any rational explanation. The stories that have been presented as an explanation by the government and the media are laughably bad. They have been repeatedly changed when the absurdity was pointed out.

The implication of not having any credible evidence examined publicly this many years after the fact looks bad for our government. It makes them look complicit; both republicans and democrats.

It will not change the fact that it was the Big O's idea. That he was betting it would not get this far... that he did this to get by the election after that he could care less what happend... that he got what he wanted then move the goal posts...

The big O is at fault... but I guess you are blinded by the Obama aid

Right... Sperling came up with this... did not pass it by the president just introduced it. The director of the NEC would not put something like this foward without the Pres. approval.

ACT it was a way to kick the budget problem down the road past his election
>>BOTH parties have been kicking it down the road."
True.. but this allowed the Big O to ignore it till he got elected... So Fact stands.

FACT Obama was presented with a bill that had everything he wanted
>>Which bill?(you call this refuting?)
In 2011 the republicans and democrats agreed on tax increases to raise the debt ceiling... Then the big O demanded $400 billion in revenues beyond what the two had already agreed to. This could have been avoided but the Big O did not want to be serious so he moved the goal line.

"FACT the sequestor [sic] cuts will not nearly be as bad as what the Big O and his cronies (you included) are saying
>>Actually they'll be very bad, as almost every independent economist has noted. Obama was merely exaggerating their IMMEDIATE effect."
Sorry but the cuts, which Budget Office estimates actual spending will only fall by $44 billion this year, is less that 2percent of the total federal budget.... the effects will not be felt NEARLY as hard as what the Big O is saying... but we all know he would NEVER lie.... only when his mouth is moving

CT... you can not dispute these.. only do ad hominem attackts [sic].
>>Obvious falsehood, since I just DID dispute them...LOL"
You didnt dispute any of them... tried to walk the margins.. but dispute no....

I disputed all of them, and you failed to answer any of my points. You basically just windily reasserted your own partisan, biased opinions and went back to pretending they're facts.
