Posted on 12/07/2010 7:48:03 AM PST by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
President Obama could be crippling his own reelection effort by making a deal with Republicans to extend all of the Bush-era tax cuts, Democratic strategists and liberal groups said Monday.
A two-year extension of tax rates ushered in by President George W. Bush nearly a decade ago, would ensure a resumption of todays fiery debate in 2012, when Obama is expected to reapply for his job, strategists in both parties said.

BS! The left has the most liberal President ever and they are unhappy? No way.
I'm all choked up, and need a kleenex for these tears...
...oh, wait, no tears...
So much for cutting debt spending and paygo and all that. The GOP has no intention of cutting spending it seems.
Do you really believe they ever did?
It’s not a done deal yet.
They will want to put Bloomberg in to usher in full global communism.
“Dumber than a box of rocks” is inadequate to describe Obama. I’m sure that his strategy for re-election is to be able to contrast himself with his Republican challenger by opposing “Tax Cuts for the Rich” as a re-election strategy. He has achieved this by having the Bush tax rates expire just after the election. He simply doesn’t understand that this positions him as an ineffective leader who will have accomplished nothing in four years of his presidency.
They don’t care he caved. The dems despise rich people doncha know and themselves I suppose and love the peter pan idea.
I’d have to wonder if Bloomberg could be any worse.
Next stop, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
And his ineligibility for that position is irrelevant, and anyone who says it is, is a racist.
When he campaigns for that position he'll be a Kenyan and therefore eligible.
I pray that the Secret Service keeps up their good work and protects B0 to maximum of their abilities and then some.
I want to see B0 go out upright, as the grossly incompetent perfect storm of Affirmative Action, quotas, the race-norming of scholastic grades etc...
...as opposed to not upright.
Those dirty Godless backstabber Stalinist lefties are capable of anything now that the rational thinking members of the electorate have B0 dialed in as a total goof.
NObama’s re-election ws toast when he jammed NObama HELLTH care down our throats.
He hates the work, and so does his wife. In 2 years he can embark on an Adore Me tour with an indefinite run. He can criticize other presidents, make trouble, run up a tab to the moon, and have personal security detail free of charge. Hollywood awaits.
Why should he run for a second term?
It also is angering the left wing of the Democratic Party, which already has a long list of complaints about Obama.
President Obama has shown a complete refusal to fight Republicans throughout his presidency even when the public is on his side and millions of his former supporters are now growing disappointed and infuriated by this refusal to fight, said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
The PCCC on Monday afternoon circulated quotes from 2008 Obama campaign staffers who expressed disillusionment with the president for agreeing to extend tax cuts for the wealthy amid signs that the White House and Republicans were edging closer to a deal.
Obama is demobilizing the troops and demoralizing the public right before he seeks reelection, Green said.
They cannot ever be happy. That is what Liberalism is all about.
You have about as much of a chance finding a happy liberal as you would finding a Jewish Pope.
They wanted an appeaser who would bend over to Iran and North Korea so they should not be surprised to get a guy who will bend over to anyone.
Those screaming right now will get in line in 2012 and vote they way they’re told to vote. It’s the “middle” idiots who elected this clown and who will be responsible for re-electing him if he wins in 2012.
In all honesty, I never thought there’d be an election in 2010. And I’ll admit it.
A bloody Dem nominating process in 012 would be fun to watch.
This guy is so weak and our country is in grave danger.
>>Next stop, Secretary-General of the United Nations.<<
Ive been wondering about that for some time now. I fully believed that but now wonder if he has damaged himself with the powers that be. If he does end up in that position we are headed for some serious problems in this world.
Only if Obama manages to get them global taxation powers before he gets there.
A United Nations with global taxing authority is the de facto world government we have been
waiting for fearing.
Like he ever had a chance to begin with. He will be defeated in the primary by another commie.
I am so sick of the Obamamedia’s propaganda. Obama is campaigning, using the complicit media to push out headlines and propaganda trying to persuade Americans he made some kind of ‘compromise’. As always with Obama, it’s DECEPTION. He can’t win again with just his radical base, so he’s trying to convince the people that he’s compromising with those Republicans, you know the people of America who Obama calls ‘enemies’.
He’s not a centrist, he never was, he is a radical he always was.
I call BS.
The left always goes back to the plantation.
They will vote for Obama and smile.
They are never happy.
How you doin', DMDees?
I don't know wether to laugh or cry.
Sorry I meant whether not wether.
Since their ideology is based on lies,
it is no surprise that when they get everything they want
they’re still unhappy, or even more so, because it actually
points out the lies that are the basis of their beliefs.
Similarly, everyone in the world could be “celebrating” queerdom, and the queers would still be suicidal because their consciences testify to the truth.
It would be ironic, no?
If it were the LEFT that demanded his birth cert
and then demanded he not run because he is ineligible.
My heart bleeds peanut butter for Obama.
