    This was all planned

    What he really might want. TO DRIVE OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF/

    It will impose tax hikes on everyone who pays federal income taxes (not just the 2%)
    It will cut entitlements without his having to support the actions
    It will reduce defense spending without him ‘looking soft’ as Commander-in-Chief
    It will end the ‘Bush Tax Cuts’ automatically
    It will probably slow economic growth (GDP)
    Why would our President want these things to take place?
    He would get the extra tax revenues to use without being blamed
    He could not be held accountable for breaking his ubiquitous pledge to never raise taxes on the bottom 98%
    He would not be the one cutting entitlements, it would be ‘out of his hands’
    He prefers to cut defense spending rather than social programs
    He can later ‘give back’ tax cuts to the Middle Class
    He can then call them the ‘Obama Tax Cuts’
    He can blame those damn ‘Obstructionist Republicans’ for the next reces

    • you are being too kind to Obama...he doesn't have a clue...for the past 4 years the government has been run by his re-election team that found the "little buttons" and presented them (all lies of course but our electorate has been dumbed-down to the point where it's the little lab rats pulling the bar to get more treats) ...

      Obama ran probably the best campaign ever in terms of making the challenger look like the incumbent...Axelrod needs a raise.

        What treats, drooler?

        BTW, you are running and dodging from the election results. Wisconsin went big for Obama and the Democrat in the Senate.

        So drooler, where were you in defending white Wisconsin from the "busloads" of voters from Illinois that would willingly commit voter fraud?

        See drooler, you were wrong. Your ignorance and home school "advantage" aren't working.

        Sentiment: Hold

      • NewbiePolack calls the electorate 'dumbed down.'

        That's funny -- he thought they were very smart at least as of Aug. 23 when he wrote, "wait for a Romney win and a cut in the corporate tax rate."

        I guess they got a lot dumber all of a sudden. Maybe they started reading NewbiePolack's posts.

      • he doesn't have a clue


        And yet somehow he beat the Mormon Doosh and all his billions in corporate cash.

        I guess only Tommy Thompson has a clue. He's so brilliant he lost to a lesbian!! Ba ha ha ha ha.

    • Retard blames Obama for something that CONGRESS did to itself.
