He is sounding belligerent and disbelieving. He claims that we can’t cut any more spending. He’s calling for more taxes on “those who can afford it.” What a load of nonsense.

We need a balanced approach. Gridlock has been destructive. The fight in Washington has ruined the world. About what I expected.

- tackle deficits over the long term
- we can’t cut more in defense or social spending
- tax reform, ask those who can afford it to pay their “fair share”.
- reform to medical programs

Some people had good proposals, gang of six and Boehner. Not the lack of plans that’s the problem. It’s DC politics. Can’t draw a line in the sand. Need to change ideology.

In short, blame the conservatives.

Now that late-boy finally got talking, the Dow has dropped to -422......

I was beginning to think that he was stalling until the Limbaugh program was over.

Fox cut off the first part. Did he praise Buffett? S & P just downgraded Buffett’s company didn’t they?

Notice how “nice” he’s going to be?
They’re going to reform the tax code and ASK those who can afford it to pay a little more.

That’s nice of them to ask - what if we say “no”?

Oh? “No” isn’t an option? So you meant “TAKE from those we think can afford it”, right?

Just exactly the WRONG message to send the markets. Look for the downward spiral to continue at an even more rapid pace.
