Obama to GOP: ´Take
me out of it´

NBC News, by Carrie Dann

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/20/2012 1:47:30 PM

Saying that Republican opponents should "take me out of it," President Barack Obama appealed Wednesday for compromise on the "fiscal cliff," urging GOP House members to put aside personal and political concerns after a week marked by the Newtown shooting tragedy and continued bickering over the nation´s deficit woes. Acknowledging that his most vehement foes live in conservative districts with little political "incentive" to back the Democratic president, Obama blamed Republican rank-and-file for personalizing the politics of possible deficit reduction plans.

If Zippy didn´t want to be ´in it´ then he should not have run for reelection. Presidents (up to now at least) have always understood that they are on call and in it 24/7/365.

Obama, yesterday, said that he was seeking "compromise". I sincerely wish one of the media would have asked Obama, "What do you intend to compromise? You´re asking Republicans to compromise one of their key platform principles (lower taxes). What, precisely, are you going to compromise?"

Whenever you hear the word "compromise" out of the Left, what they mean is that you compromise and they remain steadfast in their own positions.

Why should he lead? He has the best job approval (56% Ras & Gallup)he has had since August 2009. He won the election easier than Bush did in 2004 and Bush declared a mandate. On this very day (12/20) in 2004, Bush´s job approval averaged 48.5 and his disapproval averaged 45.8- up only 2.7 points. Bambi is up 11.5 on RCP today!

#8 you are right. Any Republicans of any stature should stand up now and let Obama have it for that statement. Truman said "If you can´t stand the heat get out of the kitchen" That doesn´t mean quit negotiations and go to Hawaii as our economy goes up in smoke.

Obama is among those for whom the category of legitimate political disagreement does not exist. When, therefore, opponents refuse to go along with his opinions and plans, they are not merely mistaken, they are driven by base motives. For ideologues like Obama there is no rational, ethical reason for anyone not to see things their way. They have lost, or perhaps in some instances never acquired, the category of political disagreement.

Shrunken and dogmatic minds like Obama´s are typical of graduates and personnel of our best universities. A liberal education used to mean an education in the liberal arts, the purpose of which was to acquire a broader and less dogmatic view of the world. In recent years the exact reverse has taken place as universities, controlled by Leftist partisans, indoctrinate rather than educate students. It would be much more accurate to call such a process an illiberal education - or a Liberal education, with the emphasis on capital L, i.e. political liberalism.

Obama can spout such nonsense with a straight face because (a) he actually believes it, and (b) the mainstream media and Liberal establishment, which also believe it, never challenge it. Thus he can get away with claiming that anybody who doesn´t go along with him is acting from bad motives and is being partisan and political, while he is only telling and proposing the honest, incontrovertible Truth.

If it didn´t mean wrecking the country, this kind of talk, and the gullibility of those who fall for it, would be hilarious. It is an unconscious form of self-parody.

Go back and listen to the tape and insert in parentheses, a black man, and you will understand the point. That is the most despicable thing I have ever heard in politics.

Plan B is what he is asking for on taxes except for the trigger of the highest rates. What he can´t abide is the disappearance of all his special give aways that started with the Stimulus. Plan B is causing him some heartburn because it is giving him what he has demanded. The spending cuts are not part of Plan B because they have already been written into law and signed by Obama.

As NSA leaker Edward Snowden finally left Moscow´s airport, President Barack Obama met Thursday afternoon with nine members of Congress to discuss American surveillance efforts. Obama hosted what the White House called "some of the programs’ most prominent critics and defenders," though it did not include Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), perhaps the most prominent critic of the National Security Agency. "Today’s meeting was constructive and the President committed that he and his team would continue to work closely with the Congress on these matters in the weeks and months ahead," the White House said.

WASHINGTON— Dozens of leaders in the immigration movement were arrested Thursday after they blocked a major intersection near the Capitol in a protest of Republican opposition to an immigration overhaul that would include a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million immigrants who are in the country illegally. More than 40 leaders were taken into custody after they walked onto Independence Avenue and locked arms, chanting in Spanish “Si, se puede” – “Yes, we can.” Another, smaller group of activists were arrested later in the afternoon after they blocked the hallway outside the office of House Speaker

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Congress´s top inquisitor subpoenaed the State Department on Thursday for documents detailing the inner workings of the independent board that probed the September attack in Benghazi, Libya. Republicans on the House Oversight panel have accused the Accountability Review Board (ARB) of seeking to protect former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in its investigation, notably by declining to interview her. Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said he subpoenaed the department because he was being stonewalled. “After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,”

A Syrian religious group have banned croissants because they symbolise western oppression. A Sharia committee issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring croissants ‘haram’, which means they are forbidden in Islamic law. The group, which operates in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, said that they have ‘colonial’ significance. They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya. Islamis sharia committees have declared several strict fatwas in rebel-controlled areas of Syria.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
