Biatches please. You have exactly zero intent of working with the President unless he utterly caves to precisely what you are asking for, and even then, your past history indicates that you will abandon that position in favor of one further to the right.

If he wins on Tuesday and keeps the Senate, I hope he walks into the Oval Office on the day sequestration takes effect, whips out his dick and flops it onto the desk, and calls the Press Corps in for a photo op.

Politics as usual.

Republicans aren't conceding that Obama will win Tuesday, but they're warning that allowing tax rates on high-income Americans to increase at the end of the year - as Obama and Hill Democrats have proposed

You mean the EXPIRATION of the TEMPORARY Bush tax cuts? I'm pretty sure that's a done deal. But Congress can make them permanent, all they need to do is get 2/3 of Congress to vote for them. If they're all that popular, that should be easy.
 
2012-11-05 08:56:42 AM
So let me get this straight. All of the Bush tax cuts are expiring on 12/31 if no deal is reached and these clowns think they are bargaining from a position of power? I call BS. Same goes for the fiscal cliff. Forget about uninformed voters that will forget all about it by the next election. The defense contractors will remember that the republican led congress let all those automatic cuts go into effect and when they do you will see a whole lot of congress critters get cut off of the campaign donation Christmas list in 2014. They are going to be ready to deal.

If Obama wins he has the bully pulpit.

This. The expiration of a temporary cut is not a tax increase. And the Democrats, including the President, have allowed that narrative to go largely unchecked.

hahaha I meant whoever the Democrats put up for the nomination next time. I fear that whoever it is, will have to run away from the president faster than Romney ran from Mass

The GOP already blew its collective load. They can't get any less cooperative, so the plan will be how to work around them.

Why make any concessions if they aren't going to get you anywhere?

I can't believe Obama forced Bush and the Republicans to write the temporary tax cuts this way.

No President should have unfettered access to a time machine while he's still in office.

Except Teddy Roosevelt.
 
2012-11-05 11:48:32 AM
Those are some might nice military pork spending and Bush tax cuts you got there GOP Congress. It would be a shame if automatic cuts were kicked in and Bush tax cuts were allowed to expire because you didn't want to play nice.

April 18th, 2013:

This just in. For the first time ever, the Congress has received a negative approval rating, at -3%. This has been achieved as everyone polled disapproved and then just to reinforce the point, most of congress also called the pollster unsolicited to exclaim how f*cking terrible they were. Several sovereign nations also called the pollster to register their voice.

"Poisoning the well right out of the gate makes no sense if the goal is a productive second term," said one senior House GOP leadership aide.

Then tell your bosses to stop it, farker.

More than that the Republitards shot their load on the Debt Ceiling Disaster. They left a grand bargain on the table that would have made any Republican from 1980-2010 cream their jeans with delight.

The only question for the next four years, if Obama wins re-election, is are the Repulitards going to do absolutely nothing and obstruct the government at every turn? Like they did the last four years, but with worse results for them.

"Same old story," said David Krone, chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), characterizing the Republican position to POLITICO. "We haven't even had the election yet and already the Republicans are drawing a line in the sand. It's really sad to see."

That's funny. Apparently Mr. Krone missed Obama's earlier sand line drawing. Link
 
2012-11-05 11:53:23 AM
Man, they really are that stupid, aren't they?

Newsflash, dumbasses: When Obama is in a second term, he doesn't have to play nice with you shiatheels any more because unlike you, he never has to worry about getting elected again.
 
2012-11-05 11:53:25 AM
Let's see, when he came into office in 2008 the GOP warned him of consequences of railroading them.

...so he played nice and as a result nothing got done.

In 2010 the GOP had some legislative power and as a result, nothing got done unless it got railroaded.

So now n 2012 after years of accusing the President of being responsible for not getting enough done you're warning him of the consequences of not railroading you.

Seriously? This is the best you can come up with?

You should be asking less about getting or not getting the pounding you so richly deserve and thinking more about how to minimize the beating and making something positive out of it.

And yes, the second term is always the term to leave a legacy. Anticipate as such.

The Congressional elections of 2012 have been largely overshadowed by the presidential election and a ton of money coming in from SuperPACs.

My expectation is that Congressmen on both sides of the aisle are not happy w/the Citizens United decision. It remains to be seen whether Congress will try to curtail the decision with new laws.

However, the left-leaning side of the aisle is more fired up right now, at least as I see it. If the GOP continues to be stubborn the next two years, I just plan to get out there in 2014 and get those f*ckers out of office any way I can.

I propose this happen only after the pre-emptive bombing of South Carolina begins. Just to send a message to those Confederate states that want to keep up their tough talk for four more years.

Aren't taxes going up MORE if nothing gets passed?

I don't think the Republicans thought their plan through.
