Have it on solid authority that Obama threw a major [bleep]-fit late this afternoon, eastern time, on whatever this is he agreed to as his back was against the wall because the speaker would not back down and apparently Reid and the Veep told the Prez it was over and to get over it. Developing. I should be able to confirm with sources in a few hours or by tomorrow's show.

Have a good one. I still remember TEFRA. I trust nothing anymore. Certainly, I hope you’re right. Bob

Thank you. When have Pelosi or Reid ever crossed Obama? And if they did, what are the chances the public would hear about it?

Obamski must have missed his tee time, and Mooshelle was told no more vacations this year..

Well, for sure. Let’s see what the analysis is once the details are really known. It was so important to the O’s re-election that he get the GOP to break their tax hike pledge. They needed a fracture in the GOP base. They don’t believe they got it. I don’t either. There is, effectively, no way the commission can raise taxes. First it is implausible that they could get one so high that CBO would score it for more revenue, so what’s the point. Second, the GOP would vote down any tax increase anyway in the House and just let spending get cut on any amount of revenue remaining that the commission could not agree on. If it is too large for defense to reasonably bear (which I doubt it will be) then the next President and Congress, which will be decidedly more conservative that what we got now will adjust whatever has been cut that is too much. This is a rotten deal for the Dems. Their base, which was already depressed, is now in riot mode.

They never have. They have been meeting with him regularly thru this whole thing. They are his minions.

That’s alright. My hatred for liberals has been steadily growing for the past few years at the point that Civil War gives me a tingle up my leg.

No, I can’t see it and if you do a latest article search of FR you will see a whole crop of articles with headlines about Pres. surrendering, GOP winning big etc. So this radio show “solid authority” was probably just an administration aide tweeting propaganda for dear leader.

Not so fast on tax's.....they may have tabled the tax increases as a bartering Chip but looky here...it isn’t over by a long shot.

I don’t buy this for one second.

Why not?

Obama got hardly anything of what he wanted, support from his base is eroding rapidly and he's been shown up to be a terrible leader.

I buy it.

Try Fox Business - Stossel, Eric Bolling, David Asman, Charles Gasparino, and Judge Andrew Nepalitano. With an assortment of other smart people like Elizabeth MacDonald and Stuart Varney. It’s pretty much libertarian and best of all Bob Beckel is scarce.

Thanks, TAC, I have been reminded of Fox Business and actually have been tuning in. Stossel is fun and I like Varney. I don’t know how Hannity and O’Reilly ratings are going. So many of us have burned up and burned out over time with those two. Thanks.

I heard the same thing, if true the deal stinks. It covers Obama through the election. The cuts are not a decrease in spending, just a decrease in the %8 grow in spending. When GDP growth is low, it doesn't solve anything. Military gets a large amount of cuts when the problem is domestic spending.

How is this not the McConnell plan - giving the president more or less sole authority to raise the debt ceiling by $2.1 trillion in two years.

The spineless GOP negotiators gave away the farm. The House held all the cards with sole authority NOT to raise the debt ceiling. They had ALL the leverage. Obama and the Democrats had to cut spending until the House agreed to raise the debt ceiling. All the GOP had to to was HOLD THE DAMN LINE, force Obama to cave in, then make raising the debt ceiling contingent upon passing CCB and the balanced budget amendment. Which is to say, the House should have said, “after the Senate passed CCB making it law, AND after the House and Senate passed a balanced budget constitutional amendment off to be ratified by the states, THEN AND ONLY THEN, will we raise the debt ceiling”.

Credit downgrades be damn. Debt crisis be damned. The GOP run House had all the cards and could have demanded CCB and the balanced budget be passed in exchange for raising the debt ceiling.

Chumps. I hope the Tea Party Republicans prevent it’s passage.

As far as the president not getting what he wants & alienating his base, I can’t see it. Instead of running up $9 trillion new debt over the next 10 years, the Dems will only run up $6.9 trillion to $21.2 trillion. WOW! what a huge GOP victory!

And the president has control over the debt ceiling WHICH IS SOLELY A LEGISLATIVE FUNCTION. Why bother with a Congress, just make the president dictator for life. Nothing in the convoluted agreement will be passed by the Democrat controlled Senate, so by default, the president will have the sole control over raising the debt ceiling. Nice.

WTF if the base alienated over exactly? What did Obama not get that he wanted? He got 80% of what he wanted and this is a GOP victory with Obama furious and alienating his base?

BULLS#!^.

I have felt the same way on many things about Congress and this administration. Seems like a big show and we are being played. The deal making is done behind the scenes and the outcome is predetermined.

It was the same with Libyan war, Lame Duck, No accountability to ATF, Black Panthers, missing stimulus money.....

Obama has to run on the socialist left... there is no way he can do otherwise.

That's correct. He is already running his campaign on Higher Taxes (actions speak louder than words). He has already gone down from 250K to 200K.

He is also running against any Balanced Budget Amendment and has proven allergic to Budgets.

All the Tea Party and the Republicans need to do is keep O on the ropes, is to remind America of these facts.

I don't think the GOP realized how strong their hand really was.

Harry Reid was playing gatekeeper on this as Obama & his children in tha administration were too incompetent to strike a deal. One never knows but I suspect Reid's bottom line was to prevent CC&B. That would have been death to most liberal Democrats in congress over the next 3 election cycles. With this deal they only have Obama at risk.

“No Tax Increase” might be good for the Republican’s politically, but let’s keep it in mind thate the country’s economy, weak as it is, could not sustain a tax increase.
