    BO and the Cliff

    The problem is even the anchors at CNBC, in their post press conference discussion, said they didn't hear any conciliatory tone in his press conference. His comment about the people knowing what they were going to get when they elected him didn't help. Along with his increased amount of demanded tax revenues of 1.6 Billion, I'm not too optimistic about an agreement any time soon. I am tending towards Doc's analysis that the fiscal cliff issue will be with us right up until midnight Dec 31st., and maybe won't get resolved even then. Obama has nothing to lose. now. It appears he's doubling down, hard lining issues and is going to teach the republicans a lesson.

    • Stoth ... Remember that those anchors on CNBC are part of the problem. They all make over a million a year. Even Maria Bartoromo - not even an anchor - makes over a million a year according to a report I heard a while back. So, remember their bias.

      As for "conciliatory tone" .... excuse me, but who won the election? BO is not trying to teach the Repubs a lesson. Perhaps you would think that way, but I do not believe BO does. He is trying to do what he said he would do during the election.

      The election taught them the lesson.

      He's just quizzing them to see if they learned it.

      They'll get their grades after the first of the year.

    • He , and the voters remember what happened when he opened by offering a compromise last time and met the old #$%$" from the GOP for 4 years.
