In ‘fiscal cliff’ negotiations,
Obama and Democrats face acute risks

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Juan Williams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/21/2012 12:55:52 PM

“I think we are all aware that we have some urgent business to do,” President Obama said last Friday as congressional leaders sat down with him to discuss a deal to avoid the fast-approaching “fiscal cliff.” From a political standpoint, the conventional Washington wisdom is that it is more urgent for Republicans to make a deal than Democrats. Republicans can no longer say they are waiting for increased bargaining leverage that will come after winning the November election, gaining control of the Senate and the White House. That game is over and

Comments:
We couldn´t go into the Thanksgiving weekend without another brilliant article from Williams. That game is over and they (Republicans) lost?? That sure is a wonderful display of bipartisanship. s/o

Don´t worry, Juan, the Republicans will be blamed for everything--double and triple dip depressions, lousy health-care and Michelle´s big butt. Your constituents will believe anything.

I have proclaimed publicly that if Juan Williams ever tells the truth - OR - says something that makes sense, I will shoot myself.

I am the least likely person on the planet to take his own life.

- and that´s just the way it is.

Positively surreal. It must be truly frightening to live with a mind that deranged.

Juan, the democrats have been in power for 4 years. The democrats had unstoppable control of the entire government for 2 years. The democrat senate STILL has not passed a budget. -0-bama’s last 2 budget proposals received NOT ONE VOTE from either party. -0-bama set up a deficit reduction team of superheroes and completely ignored their recommendations. The GOP House has passed numerous budget plans which the democrat senate refuses to even bring to a vote. The GOP actually laid out debt and deficit reduction plans during the campaign, -0-bama did not. Tell me again how the impending fiscal cliff is the fault of the GOP?

Let them, and the majority of voters in this country, have what they want. Then, as the poor-but-liberal-voters watch from the food pantry, the gutter or the park bench, his elected officials live the high life, mention to the voter that THESE are the consequences of YOUR vote.

Simply going over the cliff is a greatly liberating event.

In the final scene of "Thelma and Louise", the picture of that 1966 Thunderbird hanging in the air reflects one last moment of glory.

No matter how badly it turns out, surrender is not an option.

What the heck, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid made a similar decision.

The Repubs should agree to absolutely everything the Dims have proposed. Simply abstain from voting. Force the dims to have accountability, and watch the economy crash and burn in the next 4 years. We can pick up the pieces and rebuild it in 2016. "It´s GWB´s fault" won´t work for them anymore

Wel Juan, YOUR party spent all this money in the last 4 years. YOUR party refused to pass a budget so continuing resolutions could continously be passed and hiked up 8% per resolution. YOUR party voted for the Death Bill which will cost taxpayers another $2 Trillion. YOUR party increased welfare, food stamps, Sec 8, etc. YOUR party wasted $80 billion on failed solar/wind projects. YOUR party illegally gave AlQuida affiliates US weapons and joined the AlQuida party to turn Libya into a jihadist wonderland which led to the death of 4 americans. Up yours Juan.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
