Obama: GOP ‘Will Not Collect
A Ransom In Exchange For Not
Crashing The American Economy’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 12:30:15 PM

During a press conference in the White House on Monday, President Barack Obama warned Congressional Republicans not to hold the debt ceiling limit hostage in order to secure concessions on spending cuts from the White House. He spelled out what not increasing the debt limit would mean, and said clearly that the GOP in Congress “will not collect a ransom” from the president by holding the debt ceiling hostage. (Snip) “If Congressional Republicans refused to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed,” Obama said. “We might not be able

Without a bulldog press Obama can work his will unchallenged.

The low information voters (morons) don´t have a clue and happily dance to his merry tune.

This is the power the Dems hold.

He sounded scared, really scared.

For the millionth time, the Republicans do not have the power to do much. Boehner is incorrectly spelled by some moronns on this site and if they watched, read and listened they would have heard John and Mitch out in front. Posters denigrating our side are a big part of the problem.

#14, he didn´t sound scared at all to me. If anything, he sounded comfortably arrogant, condescending and lecturing to the unwashed like the fifth-rate university whatever he was. I half-expected him to declare that Executive Orders would be used if Congress would not do his bidding and to fold his arms like Mussolini. (He will anyway). Welcome to Fascist America.

I don´t see the GOP getting anything out of the debt ceiling talks. Evil people in the WH can cause tremendous pain on the public and blame it on the Republicans. With Lew at Treasury doing Obama´s bidding on what gets funded we could see real harm inflicted beyond stopping social security checks.

Guess the name-calling of Republicans is down to a science, eh? It´s a shame that some don´t seem to have as much disgust for the criminal enterprise known as the obama-administration and his minions in the "msm", as they do while constantly denigrating the Republicans in Congress. No wonder the GOP can´t seem to win an argument. They are surrounded by cheap-shotters on all sides, including some "conservatives". The "msm", the demonrats, obama and every "news" network with the possible exception of (at times) FNC, are on constant attack. That is the same attitude that got the most anti-American president in the history of this country RE-Elected! Pathetic.

OK--I´ve not read this whole thing, but the headline makes no sense to me. Let´s see:
The GOP is supposedly holding "Not Crashing the Economy" hostage. Zero is refusing to "pay" the ransom they supposedly want...? So, he´s saying he has the power to keep the economy from crashing, but he´s not going to do it?

Puh-leeze. This article *should* have begun w/ an ´opening sentence´ gleaned from another of today´s news articles...

"“Late Friday evening, Deputy Director Zients confirmed that for the fourth time in five years, the president’s budget will not be submitted in compliance with the law,”

So to recap, Obama demands ´no ransom!´ or he´ll not obey law?

The only surprise here is that Obama hasn´t forcibly taken over David Letterman´s job so he can posture nightly on national television...

The real hostages are the few popular government programs that he listed. He is signalling that he will cut the muscle - the military pay etc and leave the fat - welfare programs, food stamps acorn etc - untouched when there is not enough money to go around. He is exactly like any municipal politician who makes the first cuts to fire and police protection so as to leave the useless pencil pushers untouched. I say lets have the showdown with this grifter now. Pass a budget showing where real cuts can be made to live within our means and then refuse to pass any increase in the debt ceiling. Let all the howling die down in a month or so then perhaps there will be some negotiations and less demagoguery.

I´m with #15 and #25 in being fed up with all the anti-Republican trash talk from self-described conservatives. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Many Republican officeholders are trying to resist the Marxist takeover. But Obama enjoys the long legacy of gradual change in our government which has resulted in an imperial presidency, with an unequal share of power. All it takes is for an evil opportunist with "audacity" to exploit the situation. We conservatives need to stand together to fight his takeover, not to undermine any and all efforts by our representatives to resist him.

Perhaps the posters criticizing the steers would not be so critical if the steers had won a single bout with the moron.

Why are they not bringing impeachment proceedings? Why are they not proposing any legislation to stop the guy? Why are they not cutting off funding to Zerocare? Many more questions could be asked. They are not weak because they appear to be weak. They really are weak and, in my opinion, just want to keep their cushy jobs.

Says the man trying to shut down 5% of US power while spending 10s of billions for expensive energy that can not compete. I personally would raise the debt ceiling $4 billion for every week he suspends ALL environmental rules. For a year delay of rule he has added, I would give him 108 billion. The economic growth would easily recover this amount. The GOP should throw this out and point out that this is more than he got from the ending the payroll tax holiday and tax on the rich combined.

Obama plans six fundraisers

Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/10/2014 9:01:51 PM     Post Reply
President Obama will host at least six fundraisers for Senate Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, a Democratic aide said Monday. The president´s commitment comes after he huddled last week in the Oval Office with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil. According to Politico, which first reported the fundraisers, the fundraising appearances will include trips to New York and the Washington suburbs in the "coming weeks." The president is also planning to hold fundraisers for Senate Majority PAC, the outside group dedicated to preserving Democratic

Each passing day is more incriminating for President Obama´s Obamacare, as the news is like a relentless prosecutor amassing evidence against a serial killer. Yet the more evidence that rolls in condemning the president´s "signature achievement" -- wouldn´t you love to have that albatross hung around your epitaph? -- the more entrenched Obama becomes, making clear that his heart is not with the American people or their needs but stubbornly fixated on self. His singular goal is not to provide "affordable health care" but to slay those who are trying to take his "baby" away from him, with the deranged obsession

The Seattle Children’s Hospital is suing Washington state’s insurance commissioner over a “failure to ensure adequate network coverage” in the insurance exchanges established as part of the Affordable Care Act. “We’re seeing denials in care, disruptions in care. We’re seeing a great deal of confusion and, at times, anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought insurance thinking that their children would be covered,” a doctor with the hospital said. “And, in fact, it’s a false promise.” A recent CBS News report detailed the experience of one mother whose child recently came down with an ear infection.

While penning praise of Obama´s White House Chief of Staff, liberal columnist Albert R. Hunt of Bloomberg also took a moment to call the IRS harassment of conservatives a "faux scandal." Hunt´s op-ed is filled with wide-eyed praise of Obama´s Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, calling him "skilled" and "efficient." McDonough is a "high-energy" guy praised by both Republicans and Democrats, Hunt is pleased to say. Along with the effusive praise, Hunt also added a sentence taking a shot at those who feel that Obama and his IRS have abused their power to harass conservative groups in hopes that they would give

Teach for America, a non-profit organization that recruits teachers for low-income schools, is placing candidates who came to America illegally but have been granted Deferred Action status. In 2012, President Obama established a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Obama’s executive action provided 560,000 illegal immigrants, who came into the U.S. as children, permission to work here if they pursue education as a career. These immigrants call themselves “Dreamers” after the failed federal DREAM Act, which would have granted them green cards. Co-CEO of Teach for America Elisa Villanueva Beard insists, “It’s just an incredible opportunity for

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

Instead of treating Hillary Clinton as a possible presidential candidate who must be vetted, NBC framed her as a sympathetic victim of a "brutal" and personal attack on Monday´s Nightly News.Andrea Mitchell bemoaned that "inflammatory excerpts" of "once-private papers" of Clinton´s close friend were published an "anti-Clinton website" -- the conservative news site Washington Free Beacon.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring. (snip) But Obama and his Democratic Party allies seem to be gleeful about the rise of the loafer class.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a
