Disagreeing with Obama can ruin Christmas, says White House report

Any Republican refusal to accept President Barack Obamas fiscal plan may ruin Christmas for the nations retailers, the White House claimed in a report released Monday morning.
The National Retail Federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow 4.1 percent this year [but] if Congress does not act on the Presidents plan to extend tax cuts for the middle-class, it will be risking one of the key contributors to growth and jobs in our economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores, says the report, which was prepared by the Obama White Houses National Economic Council and the presidents Council of Economic Advisers.
The holiday season is no time to threaten middle-class pocketbooks, urges the report, titled The Middle-Class Tax Cuts Impact On Consumer Spending & Retailers.
Democrats made the same claim June 28, 2011, during talks about increasing the federal governments ability to borrow more funds.
Happy Holidays America: [Rep. John] Boehner plan would have the debt ceiling all over again during the holiday season, which is critical for the economy, White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer declared. (RELATED: GOP aims to gut Christmas, White House alleges)
Obama spokesman Jay Carney and top political aide David Plouffe also made the same claim that day.
The new report is part of Obamas media campaign to blame Republicans for scheduled tax increases, spending cuts and the stalled economy during Obamas tenure.

resorting to scare tactics and blackmail...the ante just went up.
Obama AKA Mr. Grinch.
The king of sinful sots!
Are they admitting that Obama is Santa Claus, just like Rush said?
Is this a JOKE????? Electing the guy RUINED Christmas, at least for the MAKERS....they're just worried about the TAKERS!
Obama and Plan ,would that been an oxymoron
Huh? Didn't both the Democrats and the GOP establishment get their panties in a twist when Rush Limbaugh compared Obama to Santa Claus a couple of weeks ago?
Yes, the Obama Zombies in the Miami Florida media have begun beating this drum today....they are repeating the Obama line that Republicans will be to blame if the Christmas shopping season is bad—because the “middle class” is worried over the fiscal cliff.
Journalism is dead. ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX local tv in Miami may as well be Pravda.
So, basically, Obama knows that the holiday selling season is going to be a disaster so he’s (again) setting up Republicans to be the fall guy, to which the corrupt MSM will undoubtedly accede.
I am so sick of this garbage and there is no relief in sight.
DAMN ALL of those that allowed this corrupt bastard another 4 years in power.
You have to have money to spend in order to purchase gifts for Christmas. The number of Americans receiving food stamps combined with those who qualify but don’t take them indicates that there is not a whole lot of disposable income from the masses to spend on anything. Maybe Warren Buffet can go out and buy a bunch of stuff from WalMart, Target, and JCP and save Christmas. Then he can get a big tax write-off as he gives all the goods to some charity.
“Any Republican refusal to accept President Barack Obamas fiscal plan may ruin Christmas for the nations retailers”
Any Obama plan WILL ruin the retailers....there, fixed it....
Bring it on. With that idiot in the WH, the next FOUR YEARS are ruined, not to mention, Christmas.
+4.1% is a lie... -11% maybe!
Funny. I remember when the Democrats said those tax cuts were only for the very wealthy.
