The Grinch who stole the election

In keeping with the Christmas theme, I figured it was worth another crack of the Christmas whip.

November came and went. It brought storms seldom seen in politics. The gales could not camouflage the ire of the voters, hard as they tried. Hail-Mary Landrieu even tried the head fake but no dice. Captain Uterus tried his dangdest to continue the vagina monologue. People weren’t buying it.

In the end, we thought voters spoke loudly. The consensus seemed to be as a Democrat strategist said back in August. They weren’t asking pols to feel their pain, but blaming them for it. A pox on the Party with the most power.

Then when the smoke cleared and the last ads died, the headcount was promptly ignored. Dems acted as if it didn’t mean a thing. They balked at the will of the people.

Obama came out to threaten then unleash his executive amnesty plan. The clock was now ticking to the Christmas countdown. Obama said bah-humbug to the results and “I will have my way now,” even if in six years earlier he hadn’t done the deed. He said “I’ll spoil your Christmas and wreck your New Year’s plans.”

Along came the budget clock and again Dems said it’s our way or the highway. Boehner went from tough talk to towing the Democrat line. He asked Obama what will make you happy, oh Christmas Grinch? Obama said ‘try as you might and still I shall not be happy.’

So within a month Obama declared the agenda his for the taking, and Dems applauded his tactics. “Phooey on elections that mean nothing, I still have my power and you cannot take it away.” Game on, but Boehner said “what game?” Not much of a challenge when Christmas cheer is stolen by the Grinch.

Even the Dems flooded the White House with calls to stop the budget bill passage. It went according to Obama’s desires. They wrapped it up with a big bow and called it good, despite the protests from the Left and the groans from the Right. Boehner let the Grinch steal the stage. No, he ceded it to him.

The election should have been about controlling the agenda. Or we thought it was. But before that could even start, Boehner signaled that nothing was really going to change. The Grinch decided the vote didn’t matter. Rather, he heard the uncounted voices of non-voters. “Phooey on polls and ballots!” It would be a ruined holiday. Dig out the 6 yr-old fruitcake, wrap it up again, and stick a new bow on it. Grinch was quite happy.

“And to all…nightmares galore. Bah Humbug, and an unpleasant New Year’s too,” if Grinch has his say, as he stormed off to play golf on a holiday.

Elections have consequences, but not for the Grinch. 2015 will be the sequel to 2014, in the Grinch’s plan. Turning hope and cheer to mope and fear. “Up Boehner, up Blitzen, away!”

ObamaCare, the final frontier

IRS Scandals Threaten Funding, Oversight for Obamacare

Saturday, 15 Jun 2013 — Newsmax
 
By Sandy Fitzgerald, Newsmax & Stephen Ohlemacher, The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Mounting scandals at the Internal Revenue Service are jeopardizing critical funding for the agency as it gears up to play a big role in President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Obama sought a significant budget increase for the IRS for next year, when the agency will start doling out subsidies to help people buy health insurance on state-based exchanges. Congressional Republicans, however, see management problems at the IRS as an opportunity to limit the agency’s funding just as it is trying to put in place the massive new law.
Republicans have been fighting the health care law ever since Democrats enacted it in 2010 without a single GOP vote. Unable to repeal the law, some Republicans hope to starve it by refusing to fund its implementation.
The IRS scandals are giving them a timely excuse.
“I think it’s safe to say they’re not going to get the kind of increase they’re asking for,” said Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee that funds the IRS.
“The question is, based on their bad behavior, are they going to end up with less money?” Crenshaw said.
The Internal Revenue Service’s track record will get a lot worse when Obamacare starts this fall, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch warns in an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal.
“If the IRS can’t manage an increase of 1,700 applications for tax-exempt status that the agency said spurred its targeting of conservative groups, how will the IRS handle its massive new role in implementing ObamaCare?” the Utah senator, who is the ranking minority member of the Senate Finance Committee.
…/
“The IRS needs to repair the plane while it’s in flight right now,” said Paul Cherecwich, chairman of the IRS Oversight Board, an independent board within the agency. “Should the current budget environment continue, the IRS will have to continue to have to do more with less while rebuilding taxpayer trust. It has no choice, and it won’t be easy.”
Like many federal agencies, the IRS has seen its budget and workforce shrink since 2010, when the agency was allotted $12.1 billion. This year, the IRS is expected to spend $11.2 billion. Obama’s proposed budget for next year is $12.9 billion — a 14 percent increase over current spending.
About $440 million would go toward implementing the health care law. That would include hiring nearly 2,000 employees, according to an analysis of the president’s budget proposal by the Government Accountability Office.
“We are working to get to the bottom of what happened at the IRS, hold the responsible parties accountable, make sure it cannot happen again, and restore public trust and confidence in the IRS and its ability to administer the tax code fairly and efficiently,” said White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage.
“For years Republicans in Congress have made repeated attempts to stop and slow down the Affordable Care Act. This is just the latest attempt to put up roadblocks to implementing the law,” Brundage said. “The health law is the law of the land, and we are working to implement it well, so millions of Americans will have access to affordable and quality insurance.”
Starting next year, the IRS will administer subsidies to help millions of individuals buy health insurance. The subsidies, technically tax credits because they are administered through the tax code, will help low- and middle-income families buy health insurance through the state-based exchanges.
Under the new law, nearly everyone in the U.S. will be required to have health insurance starting in 2014, or face penalties. The IRS will collect those penalties.
“The American people will see over the next six months the lengths the Republicans will go to destroy the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,” said Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington state, a senior Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee. “I’ve expected it from the first day this (IRS) issue came up.”
“I’m sad about it, it’s awful,” McDermott added. “But sometimes in a democracy people have to learn the hard way, and the American public is going to learn.”

H/T to Dave for the article
 
Sometimes “people have to learn the hard way”, and we are going to learn? My arrogance detector just busted.(or was that the hypocrisy meter?) I believe McDummy said it all.

The White House says “Access to affordable and quality insurance”? What a joke, when neither of those are really true. It’s outrageously expensive and it drives the quality of care down. (She attempts to substitute “insurance” for care, which doesn’t save her)

Obama’s unfair and unbalanced approach

And Obama takes on the “conclave”.

Obama’s mantra of a balanced approach apparently does not include a balanced budget any time in the future — in the near term or the far term. Isn’t it funny that the key word Obama always uses is “balanced” and yet he admits his fiscal strategy does not involve balancing the budget?

He told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he does not believe in balancing the budget “for the sake of balancing the budget”. Gee, and I always thought that was supposed to be one of the primary objectives of a budget. We’re in a brave new world.

So much for Obama’s “irresponsible and unpatriotic” complaints. I guess he believes in leaving his debt debacle to someone else, anyone.

“Fair and balanced” to Obama means unfair and unbalanced. Now that he tells us balancing the budget is not one of his goals, get ready for the other overused word “investment” to explain away his big-spending plans. All those votes get expensive.

This liar in chief is just a walking talking contradicting king of hypocrite hill (mountain). Besides, he doesn’t even plan to put out his budget until next month. And he blames that on the “fiscal cliff”, sequestration, and of course Republicans.

But even better than his unfair and unbalanced approach, Obama does a photo-op  going to meet Republicans in the Capitol and look how it gets reported. On the same day the Catholic Church is choosing its new Pope, nothing stops Obama’s papacy from stealing center stage.  Just look at this ABC report, complete with photo symbolism and suggestive title.

President Obama Faces House Republicans in Capitol Conclave

Still, there is likely more hope for a new Pope today, than positive prospects for a bipartisan debt deal.

Say what, a new Pope is relevant to fiscal stalemates? Maybe they planned black and white smoke for effects too. Some red hats for congress would add to the visuals. Maybe they could have arranged for someone to bow and kiss his ring.

Let me see if I can further their narrative in Rome. Maybe the new Pope ought to immediately start blaming the prior Pope and then take pot shots at the cardinals rather than concentrate on his duties. Yea, that sounds like a plausible comparison. Then he could take to the road and tell the “faithful” to call up the cardinals and get after them. Am I taking it a bit far? I’m just fed up with their narrative.

What’s next, how about a big shout out to the church of Climatology? (that’s coming)

Obama says cuts are real and will hurt

Satire // Featured post – for laugh or not… (3/4/13)

The Peeled Onion Report

March madness taking hold in White House

Sequestered in a closet off the Oval Office, Obama sits in fear of the effects of sequestration on his White House activities.

News of his holed up anxieties reached the tipping point just as the chef announced plans to restructure the White House menu. It’s no secret Obama has an appetite for expensive Kolbe beef and Dom Pérignon. The chef cited new tariffs and a drastic increase in cost along with shipment problems, both of which make it “practically impossible to receive monthly orders”. Electric and refrigeration costs were added considerations.

No statement from the First Bitch was available at the time of this report, though aides say privately that she is fuming over cuts in her staff and new vacation restrictions. The Air Force informed her of new arrangements for overseas travel. No details available. Plus her diminishing staff is said to be in arbitration over the increased workload that could force a walkout if they cannot reach a settlement. She has already told them she refuses to negotiate.

Obama, on the other hand, has sent a list of requests to the kitchen and was basically rebuffed telling him “the cupboards are bare” but that he is welcome to limited amounts of bread and water while the supply holds. He’s been on the phone complaining to SEIU bosses.

All State Dinners have subsequently been canceled, including one for Hamas and Hezbollah and a welcome back party for Hugo Chavez. No statement from them was given.

Obama ordered drone surveillance of the base and pilots responsible for AF-1. Biden has already negotiated a yearly pass with the train.  The Beast is rumored to be mothballed at the end of the month. No plans are yet set for transportation to Michelle’s birthday bash. Celebrities are taking up donations in private.

Anonymous White House insiders have told this reporter about a flurry of suspicious listings on Ebay under the name Harry Bounel, which are believed to be private possessions of the Obamas along with one auction for a Churchill bust. No word yet on the current bids but interest is said to be waning.

Next month the Obama daughters begin home schooling since the private school says they can no longer afford the added expenses of privileged children.

Over at the Capitol, leaders are taking up a resolution on cuts to White House salaries and Barry’s  executive pay under this year’s budget resolution.

The White House secretary, who pays higher tax rates than the Obamas, is being put on furlough and the job will be eliminated at the end of the fiscal year.

Obama reiterated his earlier statement that “this is not a game”.

Stay tuned for updates… evolving

Executive flu over sequestration

Freshly back from his golf vacation, Obama developed symptoms of what appears to be a nasty flu virus. And he just vomited and had  diarrhea right in front of the American people.  He made a heck of a mess.

 How embarrassing? I forgot, he has no shame or conscience anyway. No cure found yet.

“THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. (Applause.) Please have a seat. Well, welcome to the White House.”

As I said in my State of the Union address last week, our top priority must be to do everything we can to grow the economy and create good, middle-class jobs. That’s our top priority. That’s our North Star. That drives every decision we make. And it has to drive every decision that Congress and everybody in Washington makes over the next several years.

First lie. North Star? Excellent synonym for it.

And that’s why it’s so troubling that just 10 days from now, Congress might allow a series of automatic, severe budget cuts to take place that will do the exact opposite. It won’t help the economy, won’t create jobs, will visit hardship on a whole lot of people.

It does what it’s designed to do….it was your idea, remember?

Here’s what’s at stake. Over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce our deficits by more than $2.5 trillion. More than two-thirds of that was through some pretty tough spending cuts. The rest of it was through raising taxes — tax rates on the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. And together, when you take the spending cuts and the increased tax rates on the top 1 percent, it puts us more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances.

I see now where your problem is, we could never raise taxes fast enough to keep up with your spending.

Now, Congress, back in 2011, also passed a law saying that if both parties couldn’t agree on a plan to reach that $4 trillion goal, about a trillion dollars of additional, arbitrary budget cuts would start to take effect this year. And by the way, the whole design of these arbitrary cuts was to make them so unattractive and unappealing that Democrats and Republicans would actually get together and find a good compromise of sensible cuts as well as closing tax loopholes and so forth. And so this was all designed to say we can’t do these bad cuts; let’s do something smarter. That was the whole point of this so-called sequestration.

We’re making a tiny bit of progress here, Barry: “the whole design of these arbitrary cuts was to make them so unattractive and unappealing that Democrats and Republicans would actually get together and find a good compromise of sensible cuts as well as closing tax loopholes and so forth.” — By design, now you are catching on. But you refused to even negotiate and then said you had no interest in talking about spending cuts. Now you want more revenue after what you got last month.

Unfortunately, Congress didn’t compromise. They haven’t come together and done their jobs, and so as a consequence, we’ve got these automatic, brutal spending cuts that are poised to happen next Friday.

You would not compromise or even talk remember when you said I get the tax hikes for nothing in return? Your alternative reality is even worse than your budget, which isn’t done either. You’re the first one who is not doing your job.

Now, if Congress allows this meat-cleaver approach to take place, it will jeopardize our military readiness; it will eviscerate job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research. It won’t consider whether we’re cutting some bloated program that has outlived its usefulness, or a vital service that Americans depend on every single day. It doesn’t make those distinctions.

You mean if your “meat cleaver approach” is allowed to go into effect.

Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. Border Patrol agents will see their hours reduced. FBI agents will be furloughed. Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country. Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare for their kids. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings.

Have you taken a look at the economy and the private sector lately? Probably not. But you would see all the sacrifices Americans have been forced to make while all you worry about is government jobs … and spending more borrowed money. And then you can’t even get a budget enacted, which all these companies in the private sector must do, along with the CEO’s being held accountable. But you said the private sector is doing fine and that government jobs were the real concern. Now you aim more torpedos at the economy while it has already begun contracting.

And already, the threat of these cuts has forced the Navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the Persian Gulf. And as our military leaders have made clear, changes like this — not well thought through, not phased in properly — changes like this affect our ability to respond to threats in unstable parts of the world.

Who’s fault is that? Who has been ramming the military cuts through? …even trying to cut troops medical benefits? You could not be bothered by a response to Benghazi.

So these cuts are not smart. They are not fair. They will hurt our economy. They will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls. This is not an abstraction — people will lose their jobs. The unemployment rate might tick up again.

Tell me what is fair? While Americans are hurting, the economy contracting, unemployment at record highs, gas and fuel at record highs; not only don’t you mention that but you galavant around on luxury vacations even as you ignore your job and constitutional duties. And you told Americans you would not negotiate, again. (several times)

And that’s why Democrats, Republicans, business leaders, and economists, they’ve already said that these cuts, known here in Washington as sequestration, are a bad idea. They’re not good for our economy. They’re not how we should run our government.

If they are bad for the country, how could you, the executive, have let it come to this without working to avoid them?

And here’s the thing: They don’t have to happen. There is a smarter way to do this –- to reduce our deficits without harming our economy. But Congress has to act in order for that to happen.

That’s what you have been saying they don’t have to happen and they aren’t going to happen. But you’ve done nothing to avoid them. Your only concern is raising taxes on certain targeted people. (maybe you are getting it confused with your drone operation)

Now, for two years, I’ve offered a balanced approach to deficit reduction that would prevent these harmful cuts. I outlined it again last week at the State of the Union. I am willing to cut more spending that we don’t need, get rid of programs that aren’t working. I’ve laid out specific reforms to our entitlement programs that can achieve the same amount of health care savings by the beginning of the next decade as the reforms that were proposed by the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission. I’m willing to save hundreds of billions of dollars by enacting comprehensive tax reform that gets rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well off and well-connected, without raising tax rates.

Hogwash, Lie #____ (I lost count) Your “will” lacks any credibility at all. You wanted the tax hikes without negotiating spending cuts. Now you say you are willing? The Simpson Bowles you keep talking about you totally ignored. Once again, back to the tax hikes, closing loopholes mantra. We cannot balance the budget or decrease the deficit by raising taxes. You cannot get there.

I believe such a balanced approach that combines tax reform with some additional spending reforms, done in a smart, thoughtful way is the best way to finish the job of deficit reduction and avoid these cuts once and for all that could hurt our economy, slow our recovery, put people out of work. And most Americans agree with me.

A balanced approach to Obama is raising taxes while raising taxes.

The House and the Senate are working on budgets that I hope reflect this approach. But if they can’t get such a budget agreement done by next Friday — the day these harmful cuts begin to take effect — then at minimum, Congress should pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would prevent these harmful cuts — not to kick the can down the road, but to give them time to work together on a plan that finishes the job of deficit reduction in a sensible way.

At least maybe someone is working on a budget. However, we haven’t had one yet under your first term. And it doesn’t look any more promising now.

I know Democrats in the House and in the Senate have proposed such a plan — a balanced plan, one that pairs more spending cuts with tax reform that closes special interest loopholes and makes sure that billionaires can’t pay a lower tax rate than their salary — their secretaries.

Democrats in the Senate have stubbornly stood in the way of any budget attempts.

And I know that Republicans have proposed some ideas, too. I have to say, though, that so far at least the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or biggest corporations, so the burden is all on first responders or seniors or middle-class families. They double down, in fact, on the harsh, harmful cuts that I’ve outlined. They slash Medicare and investments that create good, middle-class jobs. And so far at least what they’ve expressed is a preference where they’d rather have these cuts go into effect than close a single tax loophole for the wealthiest Americans. Not one.

Straw man alert! Republicans have proposed ideas and a BUDGET. While all you want to talk about is those wealthiest Americans who, by the way, cannot solve your budget crisis. All you DO want to talk about is their taxes…and those evil loopholes.

Well, that’s not balanced. That would be like Democrats saying we have to close our deficits without any spending cuts whatsoever. It’s all taxes. That’s not the position Democrats have taken. That’s certainly not the position I’ve taken. It’s wrong to ask the middle class to bear the full burden of deficit reduction. And that’s why I will not sign a plan that harms the middle class.

What is not balanced here is you, Barack Obama. You and Democrats have said almost exactly that, no spending cuts whatsoever.

So now Republicans in Congress face a simple choice: Are they willing to compromise to protect vital investments in education and health care and national security and all the jobs that depend on them? Or would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations? That’s the choice.

Mr. President, you face a choice. If you are not willing to work, then there is nothing stopping these drastic cuts as you call them. But you’ve done nothing.

Are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job because you want to protect some special interest tax loophole? Are you willing to have teachers laid off, or kids not have access to Head Start, or deeper cuts in student loan programs just because you want to protect a special tax interest loophole that the vast majority of Americans don’t benefit from? That’s the choice. That’s the question.

Now you want to threaten Americans with first responder cuts. You, however, have not been a first responder – now or in the past. Then your threaten us with air traffic controllers, or inspectors, or teachers, and on and on. Don’t you ever change your script? They should be asking you what you are doing about it, other than campaigning and playing politics?

And this is not an abstraction. There are people whose livelihoods are at stake. There are communities that are going to be impacted in a negative way. And I know that sometimes all this squabbling in Washington seems very abstract, and in the abstract, people like the idea, there must be some spending we can cut, there must be some waste out there. There absolutely is. But this isn’t the right way to do it.

It’s always for real with you, not an abstraction. You always want to hold Americans hostage to your plans and ideas, as bad as they are. But doing nothing to fix it has been your record.

So my door is open. I’ve put tough cuts and reforms on the table. I am willing to work with anybody to get this job done. None of us will get 100 percent of what we want. But nobody should want these cuts to go through, because the last thing our families can afford right now is pain imposed unnecessarily by partisan recklessness and ideological rigidity here in Washington.

So, your door is open…now?! After telling America you would not negotiate, again?

As I said at the State of the Union, the American people have worked too hard, too long, rebuilding from one crisis to see their elected officials cause yet another one. And it seems like every three months around here there’s some manufactured crisis. We’ve got more work to do than to just try to dig ourselves out of these self-inflicted wounds

We’ve gone from one self-inflicted crisis to another that you’ve waged on America and the economy. Now you hold it hostage to your failing agenda.

And while a plan to reduce our deficit has to be part of our agenda, we also have to remember deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan.

5-alarm straw man alert. But a spending plan is our entire agenda, along with tax hikes? Even when it is well known that you cannot get there.

We learned in the 1990s, when Bill Clinton was President, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle-class jobs. That should be our driving focus — making America a magnet for good jobs. Equipping our people with the skills required to fill those jobs. Making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. Those are the things we should be pushing ourselves to think about and work on every single day. That’s what the American people expect. That’s what I’m going to work on every single day to help deliver.

You seem to think by recreating some tax policies and rates of Bill Clinton’s term that the economy, budget and deficit will miraculously heal itself. The economy is nowhere near what it was then. On one hand you want to criticize the boom type bubble economy, on the other hand you want one of your own. Which is it?

So I need everybody who’s watching today to understand we’ve got a few days. Congress can do the right thing. We can avert just one more Washington-manufactured problem that slows our recovery, and bring down our deficits in a balanced, responsible way. That’s my goal. That’s what would do right by these first responders. That’s what would do right by America’s middle class. That’s what I’m going to be working on and fighting for not just over the next few weeks, but over the next few years.

This is your presidential manufactured problem, and your timetable. To project anything else is LIE #… someone count, please. These trillions of dollars you’ve blown are sucking all the oxygen out of the room. And I know, you aren’t done yet.

Thanks very much, everybody. Thank you, guys, for your service. (Applause.)

Thanks for nothing, Mr. Obama, nothing but yet another crisis…made to order and aimed at America. (at least you are good at something)

So its the “meat cleaver” vs. Obama’s invisible scalpel.
I was hoping for the best for that virus, but the prognosis is really not good.

Obama’s par for the course

Obama hits the links after the SOTUS. “I deserve a second term” so he   can go to Palm Springs to play golf, and Michelle can dispatch to Aspen. Oh, let’s see what she wears?  I can’t wait.

However, what can wait is that budget. Who needs a stinking budget? But the gun-grabbing gun control cannot happen soon enough to suit his fancy.

So when he returns, it will be campaign time again that “we can’t wait!”
Let the gun control resume.

 

While Obama Vacations in Palm Springs, Michelle Obama to Vacation in Aspen

Feb. 15, 2013  

Katie Pavlich  TownHall

One couple, two taxpayer funded vactions. More from White House Dossier:

First Lady Michelle Obama plans to vacation in Aspen, Colorado this Presidents’ Day weekend, separately from her husband, who will land this evening in West Palm Beach for his own down time with the boys.

According to Aspen newspapers, both Michelle and Vice President Biden are expected on the slopes. The White House has not yet announced the trip, and it’s not clear when she will be leaving, though she will presumably go today.

See.: Townhall.com

Incidentally, in Jan. 2012, CNN called Obama’s obsession with golf “par for the course for presidents”, digging up records about past presidents’ penchant for golf. But it was more like par for the course for CNN

So this term, expect to see a lot more golf and a lot more defense of Obama’s par.
But expect no “hole in one” on the budget.

Get over it, I think not

This should not be have to be said but, with leftists, it seems to be required.

The number one response of Liberals to conservatives is “get over it, Obama won.” That is a snarky command. I don’t know the hundreds of times I heard that reply toward any opposition of Obama’s agenda. It is standard, backhanded rhetoric of the left.

It’s not really defined, and I’m not sure they even know what they mean by it – like many of the vague, superficial and enigmatic things they say.

Liberals never “got over” George Bush. They set the bar pretty high there. They never “got over” Iraq, or WMD, or the 2000 election. And they were proud of it. Still, it is his sycophants’ top reply. Even Obama did not “get over” Bush. He still hasn’t.

I cannot “get over” a country who abandoned common sense and its moral conscience, ignoring their better senses when electing him either. Nor can I get over a dismissive press and media who fail to hold him accountable for his record or decisions. No, it’s not just about him winning the election.

So I will not get over Benghazigate. I cannot get over fast and furious. I can’t “get over” the secrecy and obfuscation of an inexperienced, unqualified president who has set an all time high for hypocrisy. (who substituted a campaign for a resume) I will not get over ObamaCare or the national takeover of the medical industry. I will not get over Obama’s refusal to release records; even records from the Illinois Senate where he voted “present” much of the time. I shan’t get over his ignorance and constipation on the fiscal crisis.

It is not a DUI, an indiscretion from years ago, or just a personal matter.

I won’t get over the arrogance. I will not get over the statements that “you didn’t build that”. I cannot “get over” the house of czars he built; or his Marxist appointments; or his department of injustice; or his ignoring the Constitution and treatment of allies or terrorists; or his obfuscation over fast and furious and records. I won’t get over the ‘my way or calamity’ threats, or Obama’s mantra calling another branch “hostage” takers. I will not get over the attacks on the 2nd amendment, all the lies, or the accusations and insinuations of racism whenever he’s questioned either. No.

However, in context, what “getting over it” actually means is let him do whatever he wants and defy the Constitution and the will of the people, to dictate over the country without challenge. That’s what they mean. To just say when he is questioned, “I won”. Just give him whatever he wants is his and their definition of “just get over it”. That is what “get over it” means, whatever the king wants without objection: “I won, get over it.

So, Liberals and Marxists, just “get over” that already.

Obama Fiscal Cliff

The biggest issue of our time is the debt and our budget problems. Now imagine a president comes out and says I will not negotiate?

In the campaign, Obama gave us lectures about what he would do to work with others and compromise. It was just talk though. Now he says he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling. In fact, what he wanted was unilateral power to raise the debt ceiling by himself. Screw what the people say or what congress wants. He wanted to usurp the power unto himself.

President Not is  laying out his campaign once again.

My name is Barack Obama, and I’m chief of spendaholics. There is nothing anyone can do to stop me. I will not listen; I will not negotiate; I will not stop spending as I want to.

Huff Po reports

While Obama insisted he was “very open to compromise” in future talks, he emphasized he would not negotiate with Congress over the debt limit.

I will not have another debate with this Congress over the debt ceiling,” Obama said.

 

(Newser Jan 2, 2013 ) – It seems lawmakers on both sides of the aisle can agree on one thing: They don’t deserve a raise. The Senate’s fiscal cliff bill contains a single sentence provision that will stop Congress from getting a scheduled cost-of-living salary bump, Roll Call reports.

President Obama had issued an executive order raising pay for all federal employees, including a $900-a-year bump for Congress, but lawmakers in both houses had pledged to vote it down, the Hill reports, with some wanting to prevent raises for the rest of Washington as well.

“At a time when our country is facing record debt and trillion dollar deficits, the last thing Washington should do is reward itself with a pay increase,” Rob Portman said in a New Year’s Eve statement. Michele Bachmann took it a step further and drafted a bill preventing congressional raises in 2014.

 

As Krauthammer said Jan 4:

Sure, he’ll pretend to care about deficits, especially while running for re-election. But now that he’s past the post, he’s free to be himself – a committed big-government social Democrat.

As he showed in his two speeches this week. After perfunctory nods to debt and spending reduction, he waxed enthusiastic about continued “investments” – i.e. spending – on education, research, roads and bridges, green energy, etc.

Big spending is back in vogue — with no apologies He’s probably busy making out his Christmas wish-list for next year.

Harry Reid: liar extraordinaire

Hary Reid – prince of darkness award

Prince Harry has been running his mouth about how the house won’t act on the looming crisis, as if he was standing there waiting for any response from them. He claimed he was just trying to find solutions to the cliff crisis. Then, as Sunday rolled around, he said he did not have a counter offer to Republicans.

He revealed the truth, he has no interest in negotiating. (negotiation is a foreign word to Prince Harry) They want what they want and that’s it. He accused Republicans of having a dictatorship in the House. He then reverted to the second lieutenant of darkness, Gaffes Biden. But Harry will stand willing to hold the vote for the Overlord of Darkness, Barack Hussein Obama, on his phony non-plan at the last minute – just as planned. The dark forces unite in their kingdom of evil.

As we knew, more tax money — or “revenue” as they like to call it — only means more new spending to them. And no matter how much more they get, they will spend even more. Just what most people feared. Nothing changes in the District of Corruption. All Reid’s pre-game talk was only that, demagoguery.

He made no move to do a budget since Obama was elected, and he hasn’t changed his arrogantly stubborn mind since. He holds the entire government and political process hostage to his dictatorship. He’s nothing but a tool of the evil I was talking about. Sure, there are other greater and lesser actors in this evil. But Reid earned his ‘evil button’.

Everyone should be sick to death of this liar and propagandist. But somewhere he still has allies, the like-minded Marxists. Why should one man have the ability to sabotage our entire Congress? Yet to Harry, his biggest problem is eliminating dissent and any opposition.

Harry is Satan’s point man in the Capitol.
