Well after he gets taxes to go up on ‘the rich’ then he wont have much of an argument on that anymore. Republicans can play thre O game and blame everything on those tax increases.
But unfortunately that will be too late to hurt O because he was already re-elected.
That is why he strategically (and got Pelosi, and some Senate Dems) caved on this exactly two years ago (Dec 2010) to the last congress, techically caved on tax cuts to the 2010 Senate minority filibuster. So he could run his re-election campaign on ‘the rich caused the deficits’, and it worked for him. (I saw this coming a mile away.)
The problem with such huge deficits is that if a R does take the WH in 2016/2017 then he will be trapped by the massive debt and will be advised that he must raise taxes.... well remember 1990 ???? You think Republicans are shooting each other now?
I think is why congressional Republicans are in a fret about it.
The Republicans in D.C. had all of 4 years to EXPLODE IN PUBLIC over NUMEROUS Obama atrocities, but instead hid in their offices.
1) They could have stopped SCOTUS nominations by REVOLTING,and exposing both as Marxist FANATICS but they caved.
2) They could have stopped Obamacare, by REVOLTING IN PUBLIC, but they instead made nary a wimper.
ROMNEY NEEDED TO EXPOSE OBAMA BUT DIDN’T EVEN TRY.
Who took the fight to Obama over the last 4 years in D.C.?
The only names that come to mind are..
1) House: Issa
2) Senate: DeMint
And NOBODY backed them up, other than lip service.
Boehner set us up for failure regarding negotiations 2 years ago, and he will complete the castration shortly. Good luck all.
One theory is that since O has already won reelection, he could actually work with Rs to reform entitlements, without fear of leftist voter retaliation. Unfortunately, every time O says he is cutting spending it ends up being some kind of trick that costs even more to the bottom line. And the GOP has some sleazy budget tricks of its own.
