|I Hope Susan Rice is Nominated for Secretary of State For No Other Reason Than to Get Her Under Oath to Answer Some Questions About Benghazi||Is John Boehner Dumb Enough to Take Obama’s Lopsided Deal?|
Remember back in 2007 when candidate Obama promised that he would reduce the deficit in half by the end of his first term? Well, he didn’t. Instead he increased it by about a gazillion times. And now you same moops expect him to actually try to reduce it now in his lame duck term?
Idiots. Every last one of you who voted for him.
Lori Montgomery and Paul Kane at the Washington Post writing on Obama’s goal of driving our country off the fiscal cliff (and blaming the GOP):
President Obama offered Republicans a detailed plan Thursday for averting the year-end “fiscal cliff” that calls for $1.6 trillion in new taxes, $50 billion in fresh spending on the economy and an effective end to congressional control over the size of the national debt.
The proposal, delivered to the Capitol by Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, mirrors previous White House deficit-reduction plans and satisfies Democrats’ demands that negotiations begin on terms dictated by the newly-reelected president.
Unfucking believable. Well, except that it’s totally believable and completely expected.
Notice anything missing from Obama’s detailed plan? That’s right spending cuts. As in, not a single one. Instead, Obama simply wants to raise taxes to generate new revenue, which he and his drunk-on-spending buddies in the Democrat party can redistribute to those who have not earned it and definitely don’t deserve it.
Fuck ‘em I say. Speaker Boehner, one thought for you: Don’t you fucking do it. Don’t you dare agree to this pile of shit, lop-sided deal. Obama won be a measly 3 pts and Dems couldn’t win back the House. They do not have a mandate to run roughshod over nearly half the country.
So I say give ‘em what they want. Let’s shift this hoopty into 5th gear, smash the gas pedal to the floor, and drive this bitch over that cliff. Let’s give Democrats and their enablers exactly what they voted for — higher taxes. For ALL.
Via Jim Geraghty:
At this moment, Republicans in Congress need to examine which presents a more dire threat to the country:
A) A double-dip recession driven by the sequester and the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, or
B) the public’s belief (verified through polling) that our giant debt, our ticking time bomb of entitlements, and our gargantuan government can be solved by “asking the richest Americans to pay a little bit more,” as Obama insists.
Option A is terrible, but Option B is the giant locked door blocking all of the real solutions.
So if we must have tax hikes, let the tax cuts for every income level expire and let everyone of every income level pay higher taxes. Destroy the illusion among so many voters that they can get all the government they want without paying more in taxes.
Why not… give Obama his tax hike on the rich and the small cuts he’s willing to agree to — and then refuse to raise the debt ceiling any further?
Call him out. “You said you could balance things with these measures. So do so.”
More from the Post:
Boehner quickly rejected the proposal and was trying late Thursday to decide how to respond, aides said.
I’ll you how to respond, laugh in Turbo Tim’s face, and then have security throw his fraudulent and incompetent ass out of your office.
