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
Did I just hear House will vote tomorrow morning? Caller asked what happened to the 72 hour notice to read bill?!?! I wonder about that too!
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.
Thank you. When have Pelosi or Reid ever crossed Obama? And if they did, what are the chances the public would hear about it?
They never have. They have been meeting with him regularly thru this whole thing. They are his minions.
Now, now, be kind..
I read that the poor fellow hasn’t been sleeping. He’s cranky.
I should have said Reid and Biden. But can you see either of these guys telling Obama to âget over itâ.
>The commies are REALLY going to hate us Tea Party types now. <
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.
I see your point. 0 is claiming victory for “deficit reduction.” Phooey! We need debt reduction! Deficit reduction means nothing.
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.
Feel free to post a link. On second thought, please don’t - unless it goes to a FR thread.
...”tax increases would be off limits UNLESS recommended by the Super Congress of twelve.”
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.
Oops—I meant to post the link...I need to cover my keyboard and put it to bed.
Yeah the keyboard is to blame, lol. Thanks for the chuckle.
How hard is it for a piece of turd to throw a [bleep]-fit.
Not buying this. I won’t be satisfied until ObamaCare is completely and totally defunded.
The conspiracy widens...
I agree with you there. Also, how we’ll see how real or phony the rating agencies are if they retain the US’s AAA rating.
>>>I didnt even turn on TvFoxover past couple weeks they seem to be way too supporting of the Washington insiders.<<<
FOX is now mainstream, mainstream. What happened there. I’m down to Brett and Greta, except when she has McCain on. McCain needs to be on their payroll he’s on FOX so often.
Oh to be a fly on the wall. LOL!!
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.
All other news, I get on line. (or, on right-wing (ahem) radio)
No TV anymore. I used to turn it on for one hour for Glenn Beck but he's gone now so....no TV at all.
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.
0bama is just acting out his part of the CYA for himself, Boehner and Reid.
Theyre laughing at us tonight.
Their only concern is to get reelected.
You’re welcome. :)
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?
No one else realized that the proper answer is “BRAIN, BRAIN WHAT IS BRAIN?”
Our nerds must be asleep at the wheel tonight!
(I am not a nerd — just “well-TV’d”)
Hannity is conservatism's Ron Burgundy.
O'Reilly reminds me of Loofah Day (barf).
It was the same with Libyan war, Lame Duck, No accountability to ATF, Black Panthers, missing stimulus money.....
Did he leave for a cone?
He got 2 Trillion dollars more to spend!
His birthday bash is in Chicago,i think Tuesday so no time for reading.
But did we get what we wanted? Did the Balanced Budget Amendment issue get tabled?
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.
Did he invite his sugar Daddy to his party?
We had a point, here in the South, about States Rights. Obamacare obliterated them.
Guess what, THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN!
So maybe his occasional tantrums would explain the 0-boy`s head scars. Headbanging and all..
He`s learning for the first time in his pampered life exactly what it means to be told “no.”
Yeah, just like Clinton was furious at his deposition.
Was he mad as Hell?....:)
You are mising the most important aspect, we didn’t vote for a Newt or Hastert in 2010!
They are so shallow. I csn see them claiming the Tea Party won this and then trying to blame them for everything that happens between now and next Nov.
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.
