I think the Republicans should simply walk away and let him own this disaster-they are gonna be blamed anyway! Even if a 'deal' is struck, this nation is sliding down the tubes. Civil strife and violence to emasculate this behemouth of an evil govenment will come soon enough regardless of what the DamnocRATs and RepublicRATs do!
One blogger suggests that Obama prefers to play chicken, taking the nation right to the edge of a fiscal disaster because it will increase the likelihood that the GOP will cave.
Republican cave prep
He doesn't posses any basic and profound political savvy and does not trust to the little that he does possess.
To avoid being made to appear so utterly untutored and to avoid the appearance of having made a mistake in judgment... he forces the issue and takes his chances....
AFTER ALL, how much of a actual gamble is it for “O”? With the MSM by now criminally complicit and with a public long since conditioned to accept his every word and deed with a total, childish lack of doubt-what could go wrong??
Aren't there a million ways to spin mistakes and crimes to advantage...?
For God’s sake prepare Articles of Impeachment. There are certainly enough charges. Put the Kenyan on the defensive for a couple of years. I know it will never pass the Senate trial but get his a$$ onto something other that screwing with the country’s future. Right now he’s running free with the idea in his head that he is all but a dictator for life.
<< He is not a centrist, and he’s not someone who is interested in the other side’s ideas. He knows what he wants to do, and he is hell-bent on doing it. He is not just playing hardball as a matter of strategy; he has no interest in compromise and is angling to get his way entirely. And he wants to further damage the Republican brand in the process. >>
This is exactly the position that the Republicans should always operate from instead of always sacrificing integrity in the name of bipartisanship (i.e., conceding to the enemy).
Let’s just say it, the real reason Obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff is because he hates the white man. He wants to punish those who “didn’t build that” and who do not like him, who disagree with his world-view and who did not vote for him.
Plain and simple, it is a race thing.
Once we get to that point, once we realize that anything he does is motivated by a deep seated animosity toward those he perceives have unfairly benefited by putting down those of color, then we can see where this leads. The Bamster just does not care, he would rather put everyone through really tough times to make his point.
This was all so apparent in early 2008 when we watched those videos of Pastor J Wright and Bam etal sat there and took it all in. Now we get to live it.
He is not going to compromise, not at all.
Only if you're a drooling moron.
Anyone with the common sense God gave a turnip realizes The Won was raised from his mother's knee to loathe freedom and Western Civilization in general and to loathe the United States in particular.
Until now, he has blamed Republicans for everything wrong. When we collapse economically, he’ll go bigger, he’ll blame CAPITALISM. “Never let a crisis go to waste”.
If I were to attempt to destroy the U.S. economy and form of governance, I would start by attacking the energy industry and by doing so, increase the price of eveything from heating and cooling to food. Making shortages a quick reality and causing civil unrest. Then presto, I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
The Fiscal cliff could also make for a shortage of money and jobs. Creating even more civil unrest.
They also left the Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives-- the same Republicans who just removed actual conservatives from all of the financial committees.
It's time to be honest about the GOP's malfeasance, too.
I think the only way you see civil strife is if the well drys up the the free money/benefits quit coming. This gov’t is far too frightened of the Urban population to let that happen.
