Posted on 01/05/2013 2:09:36 PM PST by upchuck
... With one crisis for the short term [fiscal cliff], Obama faces new battles in Congress over raising the country's $16.4 trillion borrowing limit, as well as more than $100 billion in automatic spending cuts for the military and domestic programs which were delayed by two months under the compromise.
Lawmakers promise to replace those across-the-board cuts with more targeted steps that could take longer to implement.
Obama, speaking from Hawaii, where he is on vacation with his family, said he is willing to consider more spending cuts and tax increases to reduce the deficit.
But he said he "will not compromise" over his insistence that Congress lift the federal debt ceiling. The nation's credit rating was downgraded the last time lawmakers threatened inaction on the debt ceiling, in 2011.
"Our families and our businesses cannot afford that dangerous game again," Obama said.

“Hello room service? Please send up another $100 billion. Charge it to the GOP, as usual.”
You are living in a country populated by over 300 million people. Many of whom cannot even stand to see your face or even hear your voice. What you want is meaningless to them.
“But he said he “will not compromise” over his insistence that Congress lift the federal debt ceiling.”
I knew this. You knew this. How could the Republican Congress not know Obama is not negotiating; he is ruling?
This arrogant Mother f-lover seems to think he can tell Congress what he will and will not accept like he is a fugging Dictator or something.
If the Congress had any balls they would tell him what he is going to get and make him like it.
Just who the F does he think he is?
Down in Hawaii playing Golf and giving friggin orders. like Congress is his slaves or something. And the bad thing is they are scared to death of this Hybrid a-hole.
The man was reelected because more dead people voted for him than against him.
the GOP will cave at the last minute or come up with some type of debt ceiling deal like the last mistake
How long before this guy gets wacked ?
Interesting factoid that the (( VOTE DIED )) on Nov 6th 2012....
Many precincts registered 150% or more participation...
Voter fraud is rampant and nobody knows OR even cares how it is done..
Zero Obama is indeed a PUNISHMENT to America.. “WE” deserve him..
ELSE; “we” would DO something about it.. Few would or WIll..
“the GOP will cave at the last minute or come up with some type of debt ceiling deal like the last mistake’
I am afraid you are correct. Only we know this was not a “mistake” anymore than it is a mistake if they go along with raising the debt ceiling.
I railed at my “conservative” Senator, Ron Johnson, for voting for the “fiscal cliff” B.S. and all I got back was a garbage canned email back from him.
Asking the Democrats to come up with a solution for the spending problem, is like asking the Nazis to do Jewish outreach.
...can someone please explain to me how maxing out more credit cards is going to get us out of debt?
But I can tell you that "getting us out of debt" is the bottom task in nobama's stack of stuff.
The country must go so far into debt that it collapses. That is why nobama is so insistent the debt ceiling be raised. If it's not, he can't continue he spending binge. And if he can't do that the country won't collapse. And if the country won't, he can't become dicktator for life.
the overwhelming majority rip nobama a new one. Which makes me wonder again just how he got reelected.
That’s because it’s the weekend, and the makers are actually home and online enjoying themselves instead of working. If this article was posted during the week, way more leftist morons would be on there ripping the republicans than Obama.
Why, just take the Budget Control Act of 2011 and change the date to 2013, then kick the can down the road to New Years Eve, 2015.
Hey I should be House majority leader, speaker and president combined!
Nahh, I’ll just keep telling everyone I’m the doorman at a horrhouse.
But Mr President, if you refuse to compromise then you are making sure that we go over that new default cliff. Come on Mr President, you can't always have your way 100% like you did on raising taxes. That is not reasonable. This country is drowning in debt and your tax increases. Now you are willing to use our nations default as a hostage, just to get your way and put this country further in debt? If the country doesn't matter to you then think of your children Mr President.
That is what they should say on TV. This is how the game is played.
Don't whine, win!
The Obamatons are all con artists---pathological liars and deceivers----but sometimes Obama lets us in on his plans.....and its truly frightening.
At the Dem convention, candidate Obama promised that he'd pursue "the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one."
This is indicative of the sinister Obamatons' intention to revisit the Depression---and rejigger what came to be known as FDR's New Deal.
SOUND FAMILIAR? In 1939, ten years after Wall Street crashed, FDR's Secy of the Treasury Morgenthau told the House Ways and Means Committee: We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises .....I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started .....And an enormous debt to boot!.
Obama is no historian but he knows a plan when he sees it.
As TADSLOS indightfully posted: The New Deal was an abysmal failure, then a global war broke out in large part by our enemies perception of our weakness. That conflict ultimately changed everything economically. We reduced our enemies to rubble, then turned our war building industry into the greatest giant global economic engine the world has ever known to help them re-build and compete against us. Enter the libs in power again in the 60s - 70s, 90s and now the leftist bomb throwers run the country. We haven't had a decisive military or economic victory to go with it since.
Obama wants to re-live the New Deal? Have at it. We can sort through the rubble and re-build.----we can and will survive anything he flings at us.
The thing that must keep us on high alert: the WH tyrant is obviously planning to have 3-4 terms-----as FDR did.....
......under the guise of continuing his (gag) "great work."
And maybe "pack" the Supreme Court as FRD did.
