Obama Emerges, Promises
Three More Days of Posturing

Hot Air, by Bryan Preston

Saying that he is “modestly optimistic,” President Obama emerged this evening to call the afternoon meeting at the White House between himself and Congressional leaders “constructive.” Obama said that Senate leaders Reid and McConnell will try reaching a deal on the cliff, and if they cannot, he wants an up or down vote in the House and the Senate on a slimmed down deal that preserves current tax rates on the middle class. The Republican House tried moving just such a deal last week, but failed on the fact that tax rates would still go up

"Adjunct Professor"? He was a lecturer, a very biased lecturer who has proven he does not know or does not care about our Constitution.
His long suits are campaigning and reading teleprompters.

Whenever you hear one of these people say "the deal isn´t perfect but it´s the best one we could get" get ready to grab your ankles. If Boehner and the House rolls over on an Obama biased proposal,they´ll need to find a new job in 2015.

Obviously Obama is stalling to get their backs against the wall so they cave. I say take the cliff rather than give Obama what he wants.You´re going to get bad press either way.

Going over the cliff will awaken many of the dolts who work for a living but feel the Squatter is our messiah. Let the numerous Hollywierds and millions of us working stiffs feel the pain for a short time that this mess will eventually bring in spades without a true correction. That´s a balanced budget, (What budget? There ain´t no budget) control of fraud and control of entitlements and more.

Maybe an uprising will generate an unequivocal understanding that US minions aren´t going to take it any more. Too many believe that the handouts will be forthcoming. What they don´t understand is that they will go only to the 47%; i.e. Voters who gave us the Squatters including those grifters on the gummint dole!

“Three more days of posturing.” Plus four years of having done so and four more years in the offing. That’s enough posturing for a lifetime. Even several lifetimes. Under his leadership, corruption has almost become an art form.

Go over. Everyone will suffer but those who re-elected this monstrosity of a regime will suffer the most. Call it Schadenfreude but I don´t see anything wrong with that.

Perhaps Coulter is right. The republicans should vote present and let the democrats own this one. When people start losing their jobs they can blame the dems.

Aaarrrggghhh!! The Democrats will NEVER ´´own´´ anything! They are experts at Alinsky, while the Senate and House Republicans (/s) don´t seem to even KNOW about Alinsky Rules, much less apply them back IN RETURN.

And what´s with ´´modestly optimistic´´? Did he mean MODERATELY optimistic? What does modesty have to do with optimism? Here again, Barcky´s well known narcissism is front and center. He knows no modesty. Taking credit for something he is hopeful for..... (this was not a question).

Obama will blame Republicans for everything, now and forever (if we let him), and the drones will know no different. And they won´t care. Whatever schadenfreude we may get from the upcoming disasters in their lives, will make no difference and will bite us back in the end. Drones won´t accept that Obama and the Democrats set this in motion - and care not one whit about them, really - only that the Republicans caused it because that´s all they´ll hear from their dronemasters.

Or the Republicans will cave (again) and Obama will be the Hero of the Universe. Again.

Nobel Committee, Line 1!

Two things are NOT happening that SHOULD:

First....what party was responsible for making sure the "Bush Tax Rates" were "temporary" ???? Can any news organization find who proposed that or inserted that language into the bill ?

Second....this tax situation is NOTHING MORE than a return to the "Clinton Tax Rates". Call it that every time. The Dems think of the Clinton years as the time of our lives, so call it that and LET them own that.

Spending cuts are the secondary part of the equation, but we are losing the PR battle by letting the Democrat press define the issues (i.e. "fiscal cliff", "Bush Tax cuts", etc)

Everything Obama and the Dems have done over the last four years has been about avoiding having to vote on a budget. Maybe we´ll get a "Gang of Six" or a "Gaggle of Four" deal this time again. What a crock of garbage.

In re #2, yes absolutely. We are about to get a small sample of what happened to the Greeks. But, look, if I was in Boehner´s and McConnell´s shoes, accepting tax increases not as hard to swallow if dollar for dollar spending cuts are adopted at the same time. Whew...but, this sounds equivalent to going over the cliff.

Anything the pubbies do will just be criticized by the MSM. Anything the dems do will be the story of the day for the MSM.
The pubbies need to stand back and watch-that´s it. Let the MSM beat them up and move on. Boehner and McConnell-do not put your fingerprints on anything. Coulter is right this time.

Obama couldn´t care less about what is in the Constitution. It is just an annoying obstacle for him that he has to override. I am sure his so-called students walked away with the same attitude. That is how liberal cancer spreads.

The only way to turn public opinion if this happens will be by a resurgence of Tea Party activism. This time hopefully with higher GenX participation. Our million strong Tax Day march on Washington in 2009 and numerous rallies across America setup the 2010 rout. Obama plans to blame Republicans for his new taxes via the media but a grassroots campaign can overcome that. One can only hope.

obama is back in D/C but his focus will be to increase the deficit and to play politics, not avert a fiscal cliff.

This empty suit president knows his paycheck is there every Friday, Air Force 1 has got plenty of gas, and the White House kitchen is always open, and always free.

NO Deal, Republicans! I´m with Coulter... make ´em own it. Elections do indeed have consequences and the idiot slackers who voted for Democrats need to feel the pain. Bush let millions of Democrat voters off the tax rolls and they´ve had no skin in the game ever since. Time to pay the piper Democrats.

A very frustrated Congressman Aaron Schock was on Greta last night and he made excellent points that you will never hear or read in the non FOX media.
The interview is on his website.
The House , including 19 Democrats , passed a clean bill saving the Bush tax cuts for everyone last summer.
Harry Reid refuses to let it come up in the Senate.
Last April 13 , Obama proposed 3 dollars
in spending cuts for every dollar raised in revenue .
Republicans believe they can raise that revenue
without increasing taxes .
Schock said that Boehner tried to save as
many " hostages " ( taxpayers ) as he could by agreeing to Obama´s April proposal and he was rebuffed.
That Obama promise had an expiration date
and it was on Nov 6.
As Schock said, the proposals made by Obama and Reid are so outlandish , it´s obvious they do not want a deal .
The House is just negotiating with itself.
The Coulter proposal is intriguing, but, the only way it might get media coverage would be a massive press conference on the steps of Capitol Hill.
Where Boehener and the Republicans would lay out their frustration at Obama´s refusal to negotiate in good faith ( or any faith ,
not even his Muslim faith) .
Republicans would have to be unified in this and that could be a problem.

I originally supported the "vote present" strategy - until NerØbama raised the ante. That strategy properly applied to what el Presidente campaigned on, not his wish list. Now that it will be their way or the highway: I vote for highway.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
