No, the problem is that Obama, despite all attempts to the contrary and all efforts to get him to see reason, continues to be black and seems intent on remaining black for the remainder of his presidency. Can't anyone else see how unreasonable he's being about all this?

homelessdude: neongoats: Thanks Obama, now you are in the place most of America, and indeed the free world is. The GOP is a fount of idiocy, hell bent on damaging and punishing America for re-electing Obama.

Just stop trying to reason with them. There is no point, and indeed, no reason to negotiate with legitimate rape loving, transvaginal ultrasound, militia worshipping, white power, Christian Taliban.


Treat them like the lunatic fringe, borderline psychopaths that they are. Mock them, denigrate them, humiliate them, but don't negotiate with them.



Christian Taliban......that makes so much sense.

Mrbogey: TV's Vinnie: As for the Teahadists? Ohhhhhhhhman! Guillotines will be too merciful for what'll happen with them.

I seriously hope you're not stupid enough to think that would be a good thing. How good are you with a gun?


First off, viewing this austerity plan as payback for the Democrats getting their way on tax increases is beyond petty. Should we govern our nation based on playground rules? Do you realize what spending cuts would do to our economy right now? I suppose you can just blame it on the liberals when teachers are fired, roads deteriorate and North Korea decides to get all stabby because we can't "support the troops" like we used to.

Secondly, liberals are a youthful, healthy bunch. Most conservatives I know are 40+ and couldn't make it up two flights of stairs without panting and breaking out into a sweat. You assume, that because we eat sushi and read books that aren't crass political punditry, that we don't know how to fire a gun or have the know-how to survive your wet dream of an apocalypse. As a socialist commie muslim usurper who lives in farm country, I laugh at your assertions.

Now now that's a bit extreme. I'm sure many of them are capable of menial labor and can contribute to society in some small way. Of course they should never be allowed to vote or mingle with decent folk, though.

You don't need a gun if your side controls the drones.

I fail to see how the GOP is at fault.  Remember, the first sequester was a result of Obama not being willing to cut spending.  So in December they raised taxes and kicked the can down the road.  Now, 6 weeks after getting his tax increase he wants another tax increase to make it "balanced".

Keep in mind they're talking 2% of the federal budget.  This being the guv'mint, they're working hard to figure out how to make that 2% hurt as much as possible.  Got a hangnail?  Arms gotta come off at the elbow, sorry bout that.

This is one issue in which I'm 100% on the GOP's side.  Quit spending money you don't have.  Quit sending money to the Alaskan Salmon Industry when you're supposed to be helping victims of hurricane Sandy.

Mrbogey: All Obama had to do is compromise and do something about spending. He got his tax raises. When it came time to keep his end of the bargain and cut spending he's refused.

If he doesn't want to negotiate in good faith then I guess there's nothing to negotiate.


Do you ever tire of being a lying troll?

tenpoundsofcheese: make me some tea: If this causes American voters actual pain, the GOP will pay for it dearly in the mid-terms.

So that means things will be fine for the GOP.

With the sequester, the government will spend more this year than last year.  No one will notice unless the press decides to hype this in 6 months from now.


I like reading real Republican tears as they realize they will be affected. Link

nmemkha: The cynic in me thinks American politics has devolved into a staged "good cop/bad cop" where the GOP plays the insane heels and foil to the Democrats. (See Professional Wrestling.)

The Democrats then offer policies that are favorable to the lobbyist and corporate interests, but seem wonderful compared to the weapon's grade derp coming from the other side.


I have always wondered about that and its implications.

In pro-wrestling, the crowd is a part of the show. The crowd can do as they are told (Cheer Hulk Hogan) or they can rebel (boo John Cena). And the crowd for their part loves this roll.

The crowd knows that it is a show and they are proud of being involved in the process.

I think GOP act the way they do is because they like being the bad guys. I think that the Democrats act the way they do is because they want to be the hero's fighting the honorable fight to the death. We are playing parts. It is a game and we are damn proud of playing it.

That isn't true.  He agreed to $1.7 trillion in cuts.  Remember this chart from a few weeks ago?
[www.washingtonpost.com image 515x409](hot)

We are already at more cuts than spending revenue increases.


Those weren't cuts. Those were reductions in growth of spending across 10 years.

It's like saying I promise to give you a years worth of TotalFark and then come back and say that I'll only give you a month of TotalFark and you saying I cheated you out of 11 months of TotalFark. Obama's first budget was around 3.5 trillion. Now it's 3.8 trillion. Work it out to yourself how 3.8 is less than 3.5 and then get back to me.

But the hacks at CBPP say it so it must be true.

I see what the GOP is trying to do.  They're trying to train all of us to never, ever vote for a n-*BONG*-r again.  But I kind of like watching them lose their minds, and fark if I'm going to let them win this little bullshiat game of theirs.

So I say the 2016 Dem nominee should be a black, Satan-worshipping communist lesbian.  Just for the lulz.

Got any?

This shiat from Obama is so typical. "Well, sorry guys! This is gonna hurt me as much as it hurts you!"

It's almost as if he's a trickle-down guy who can say the right things to placate liberals. But hey, that's crazy talk, right?

I'm so glad I voted for Stein. I'm well aware I threw away my vote but I'm glad I didn't cede my conscience to this kind of crap.

Zombie DJ: FloydA: make me some tea: If this causes American voters actual pain, the GOP will pay for it dearly in the mid-terms.

The people who still support the GOP are going to continue to do so.  They blame Obama for everything.

This.
My father in law as an example.
They hate so much, their common sense is gone.


My mother and father are also examples. Speaking to them about politics is like trying to talk to fundies (their religion being staunch conservatism).

My suggestion still stands: the President should be seen supporting baseball, basketball, football, go to NASCAR events, and support animal shelters, apple pie and Mom and Pop stores, and watch as Congressional leaders and FOX News screech to denounce it all. It is simple obstructionism, at its heart. Show it for what it is.

Added Martin O'Malley, the governor of Maryland: "I think he's long-term optimistic. Short-term, he believes Republicans seem hell-bent on slowing job recovery through sequestration, which in some perverse way they see as a win."

The GOP sees it as a win because they are about to make something happen that Obama does not want to happen.

What they don't seem to realize is that most of America (and most of the rest of the world) sees what the GOP is doing, knows why they're doing it and will put 100% of the blame on the GOP for anything and everything bad that happens as a result of their failure to even try to make a deal.
