Why Obama could lose this
round as fiscal crisis grows

Fox News, by Liz Peek

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/2/2012 5:50:39 AM

President Obama, fresh off his victory lap, is about to overplay his hand. The most recent proposals from the White House aimed at averting the fiscal cliff included not only the president’s cherished tax hikes, but other demands that will strike any neutral observer as absurd. Even the liberal media couldn’t swallow the fantasy launched by Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner; the New York Times described the plan as “loaded with Democratic priorities and short on detailed spending cuts.” Mr. Geithner, acting as the president’s missionary, proposed extending the payroll tax cut (something both parties earlier opposed),

It all depends on how united the Republicans stand, and with wishy washy comments by some, and even Peter King,. whom we otherwise respect, re: giving in on tax hikes "for the rich" (e.g. the people who own small business´s and invest in others) Obama is THRILLED and encouraged. Krautheimer is right.........the Devil wirth ´em. We have YET to get any shrinking down the road and both Reagan and Bush were suckered.

Obama doubles his demands insulting the GOP and expecting them to cave on everything. Other libs tell us this is "just the beginning" They are out of their mind! The house has the power of the purse and they should use it. Money is what feeds the democrat dependency creating vote buying machine. Cut it off while you can. Giving the Rats money is like pouring gasoline on a fire. Never raise the debt ceiling or taxes. The "cliff" gives the rats the clinton rates which will result in a recession and less revenue. Enough! The GOP needs new leaders who understand these things and are principled and articulate.

The geitner game is working on the 2014 election for the demorats. That´s why the demorats will never take this situation seriously....

Soooooooo --- I say --- let it fall....

The demorats wanted to be in charge -- soooooo -- let them be in charge. WE conservatives will survive. The welfare class however -- will struggle and that´s the obama class....a free phone and free welfare and free birth control.....AND no one to pay for all the "stuff"...

Since November 7th -- my funds are safe, my cupboard is full of long/term food, I´m locked and loaded. Bring it on!!

In re #3, we are. I used to think Dave Wiedemer´s book Aftershock was a bit over the top. Not so sure now.

While we shouldn´t automatically embrace the Doom and Gloom scenario, keeping a close eye on my assets and ready to cash out if necessary.

Barry never seems to lose any argument and goes completely unchallenged by a singe member of the mainstream media. Government schools and a government media are tough to beat. If the truth has power, eventually we will win but it will take a clear message and a winning communication plan - both of which have been sadly lacking from our ´leadership´.

The liberal media can and ARE swallowing everything Obama is saying---pay attention. The ONLY oneswho are faltering slightly are those (like Jay Leno---where was HE these past 4 years?) who are siuddenly being hit in the pocketbook. The absolutely hypocritical head of Costco and other Obama backers are actually doing cash outs NOW before Jan. lst and the new (15% to 40% tax) rates on them. They deserve such contempt!!!!!!

Apparently no one has ever negotiated for/about anything. The first step is to ask for the World and when you settle for your goal of just America you can pretend both sides got something. The bottom line is the R´s will fold like the cheap suits they are.

I can understand why the left wing media parrot the 0bama line about a fiscal cliff. But why do the right wing media do the same? They both compare the current rates paid by low income taxpayers with the prospective rates that will be paid by high income taxpayers if no change is made.

But if we compare things within a given tax bracket, all that will happen is that everyone will experience an increase of a few per cent in their tax bill.

Considering that we have been in a Depression for four years and we have over 16% unemployment, this small increase is not the main item of business. Instead we have to focus on crippling the monster in the White House and electing a stronger Congress.

It amazes me how all of you keep thinking what Obama does is awful.... we thought that before the election and he was elected by a lot of people and that leaves us conservatives sitting here wondering what is going to happen to this country. We knew if he got reelected, it would be bad. We knew that and there is nothing we can do. We are in a snake pit and there is no way out. I don;t even think that it will end in four years. It is forever. We have lost it alllllllll.

The MSM will still find a way to protect their golden boy from Kenya, i.e. those heartless republicans caused a second and deeper recession. Even though the recession that started in 2008 never ended but was exacerbated by obama´s wild spending spree.

As far as your money goes, it isn´t safe no matter where it is unless it has been turned into real assets like weapons, defensible property, ammo and food. The dollar won´t be worth a buffalo-head nickel when the democrats get done destroying our country. Once America goes down the tubes, the rest of the world will quickly follow because we control all of their marbles. It won´t be just the inner-city hordes that will be threatening those who are prepared but ex school teachers, union workers, government drones and delusional liberals will all be out there in search of your food. Good luck and good hunting.

Numbers reported last week on the calendar year 2013 show that the tax hike on the rich would target 42 billion, while the rest of the expiring cuts would bring in 179 billion from the middle class and 84 billion from everyone else. Ending Payroll Holiday would bring in 95 billion and the remaining Stimulus, 27. He´s got the world focused on 42 billion, the other 385 billion he will let slide another year. But in return he wants new taxes. Don´t bite. Let all the extensions expire and say here´s 427 billion a year (90% from other than the rich), lets balance the budget. What are the 427 billion cuts you will make in calendar year 2013? The Sequester only cuts tens of billions in 2013.

The fiscal cliff is just what the Obamaphone people need to feel a shot of reality. Don´t get wobbly thinking that the Repubs will be blamed, they are to blame for everthing in any case. Spending is the job of the House, and we control the HOuse. Close the wallet and starve the beast. Let the Obama zombies howl into thier Obamaphones. Let´s settle this maker/taker thing right now.

The Obama-ites are counting on their ability to demagogue the public into believing that falling off the cliff will be the Republicans´ fault.

Dems gleefully recall how in ´94, Clinton conned Americans into believing that Gingrich, and the newly elected GOP majority in Congress, were causing a catastrophe by "shutting down the government."

Will it work this time? Dems are awfully good at demagoguing. Some few in the MSM may be catching on, and suffering a twinge of long-buried conscience ... but not enough.

The simple truth is that Dems want more money so that they can blow it on cute things like Solyndra, cars that catch on fie if you look at them wrong, , and aid to people like the Gaza -dwelling murderers.

The other truth is that we should not be surprised that the lower two thirds of the country (economically), most of whom pay no income taxes, want the top third to pay more taxes. That is because of the well known Stopstoreload maxim that other people´s money is too easy to spend.

Only a charlatan and an economic ignoramus would cater to the wishes of these people, mentioning no names, of course.

Budgets mean limits. Limits mean less stealing and pork. No budget means unlimited emergency spending measures.

I´m happy to see this column and Marc Thiessen´s column from earlier this week get support from my fellow conservatives.

Republicans have protected the people who voted for bigger government for too long. All the spending has just been passed on to future generations. Let´s see what happens when their taxes go up too and they have to pay for their choices.

Obama´s poll numbers are irrelevant. He was re-elected by the extremely stupid half of the country who buy into his crap. We all knew there would be a price to pay for this election and unfortunately the innocent will pay along with the guilty. I barely could tolerate liberals before -now I won´t even speak to them. Let America rot.

#35 hit the nail on the head and unfortunately it is only going to get worse, because the number of takers in the country will only accelerate into the future.

One prime generator of that is both the mass uncontrolled illegal alien situation, and the legal immigration programs, that feed about a million or so generally uneducated people mostly from socialist oriented third world countries into the USA every year with them eventually being granted US voting rights.

As time goes by more and more of those people will be given US voting rights, thus changing forever the political balance of the country.

Back in 1965, Ted Kennedy knew what he was doing when he changed the immigration laws to ensure that the preponderance of the classes of immigrants allowed into the country would be tailored using family reunification objectives which assists mostly poor and generally uneducated immigrants to come to the USA, who he knew from historical evidence would help to keep the liberal Democrats in power indefinitely.

When all that has been going on now for decades, the wimpy Republicans always frightened of being called out as racists by the liberal Democrats, have just gone along to get along. Now that aspect of American history is catching up with the Republicans, who unless they completely change and liberalize their party political and social philosophies will never again have the votes to win national elections.

"........also a “permanent” ability to raise the debt ceiling, independent of Congress."

Who the heck does Obama think he is, there is no way anyone in this country should allow this to happen. If it does then we just should disband Congress and shut the door because then we will have no say in anything. The only thing standing between us and a dictator is the Congress.

I´m with #´s 7, 11, et al. I have no faith in our country´s future or any of our ´leaders´. I´m cashing out all of my investments. The cash may be worthless in a couple of years but at least the government will get less of it if I cash out now than if I wait until after Jan. 1. I have a year´s worth of food, medical supplies, etc. stockpiled and plenty of ammo. I have 10 acres to farm and my own water source. I´m eliminating all liberal acquaintances ( haven´t had liberal friends for at least a decade ) from my life and am concentrating on my family and my relationship with God.

Obama will never lose ground. He made a ridiculous offer, and there will not be a better offer, because he wants the republicans to take the blame for taxes going up by refusing it. No mystery. Wants the House to flip back in 2014 because republican voters are angry and don´t vote.

47 percent are taking every freebe possible and 40% more are forgetting that less than a month ago they were claiming to be the big brave GOP who were taking back the country--- Now it´s proven is they were waiting for somebody to do that for them.
The media won´t --Yawn-- did they ever?
The elected leaders are all impotent fools---
Are they? Or are they just the whipping posts for the ones who failed to back them up or gosh even vote?
All in all can we begin to understand at least 67% don´t deserve a free nation.
Well that about matches the numbers that let the minute men give them the original American Constitution instead of joining the fight.

I watched Fox News Sunday. The interview with Geithner was incredible. He is so dense and deceitful!

Then came Boehner. Please get us a different spokesperson1 BTW call Newt. He said on Judge Jeanine that there doesn´t have to be a fiscal cliff. The Congress can do several specific things.

Why don´t they get a successful negotiator involved? It is depressing.

BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT!!

People,

60% of the citizenry will blame the Repubs for the economic crisis NO mater what goes down. Do you understand this? They cannot win this showdown.

Reality is of no significance here.60% of the county has made up its mind. That is what the polling states. They cannot win this.

If the Repubs save the day, Barry will get credit for it. If calamity occurs, Repubs will get blamed for it. It is unwinnable.

City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. (Snip)What you won’t hear about in mainstream media is how Billionaire Tom Seyer

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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.

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
