HELENE COOPER, NEW YORK TIMES: "I really do think at the end of the day, Larry, what you describe sounds like sort of the White House negotiating right now -- easily saying, 'Yeah, we can go over the fiscal cliff.' But at the end of the day, this is a president, he would have to own it. He may not think he has to own the recession; but if we go over that, he is going to have to own that. And that's something he definitely knows."

My butt . . . . this NYT reporter is reading straight from the WH script.
No he won’t.
No No No! It’s BUSH’S FAULT!!!
Why would he have to own it?
He’ll blame Republicans, progressive statists congressmen will blame Republicans, the media will blame Republicans, unions will blame Republicans, college professors will blame Republicans.
So again, why would he have to own it?
You forgot one: RINOs will blame Republicans.
Obama will do just what he wants to do at the time and
whatever that is will be just fine with the media.
The Kenyan will never have to own a bad economy. His state controlled “media” won’t let him. Their “messiah” can do no wrong. It has to be somebody else’s fault.
Whatever the Republicans think, say or do, they will own the consequences of anything obama does.
That’s just the way it is in the obamanation.
As long as the gravy train is moving, the appearance of the economy to his base is not only fine, but humming along quite well. Immaterial factors include inflation, unemployment, deficit, debt, unfunded liabilities.
So there is no upside for (R)s. Then shut it down. Or forth a plan & walk away. This administration will blink IF the (R)s stand up to it. Silly me. I forgot - they are both the same & the taxpayers will end up with higher taxes. A government of, by & for the oligarchs.
He doesn’t care. The MSM will blame it on Republicans, Dubya, etc. Obama is the Teflon Man. Nothing sticks to him.
I think as long as workers can go straight to “disabiliity” once their unemployment checks run out, Barry will continue to be considered a magical “messiah”. Workers are going from the unemployment line straight to Barry’s new “American dream”. “Disability” checks. Barry is their man. Mmmmm! Mmmmm! Mmmmm!
April 2013 First quarter GDP hits -2% . . .
April 2013: HELENE COOPER: "It's Bush's fault!"
SSDI is not lifetime, uninterrupted flow of transfer payements. Disability Planner: Your Continuing Eligibility for Benefits
In general, your benefits will continue as long as you are disabled. However, the law requires that we review your case periodically to see if you are still disabled. How often we review your case depends on whether your condition is expected to improve.
If medical improvement is:
"Expected," your case will normally be reviewed within six to 18 months after your benefits start.
"Possible," your case will normally be reviewed no sooner than three years.
"Not expected," your case will normally be reviewed no sooner than seven years.
I expect him to be a proud owner. Anything that makes America weaker and George Soros stronger is good in Obama’s eyes.
Obama will just consider it...mission accomplished.
Blah, blah, blah, blah. Nitwits have been saying that kind of thing for awhile now. The MSM will never go there and Fox News will only broadcast what gets ratings and sells commercial time. They’re all crap.
The only thing more idiotic is when I read a post or article that begins “bombshell”. Be assured that it NEVER is.
Why in the world isn’t Boehner and the other Repubs screaming at the top of their lungs that it is Obama who will be responsible for going over the cliff because he is the one who won’t negotiate?
They are either complicit or idiots. Or both.
