Obama: We need to raise taxes because of this massacre



Never let a crisis go to waste….


During his press conference today, called to announce his new gun control task force, President Obama invoked the Newtown massacre to apply pressure on congressional Republicans in the fiscal cliff standoff.


OBAMA: If this past week has done anything it should give us some perspective. I-I-I-If there’s one thing we should have, after this week, it should be a sense of perspective about what’s important. And I would like to think that members of that caucus would say to themselves “You know what, I disagree with the president on some things. We wish the other guy had won. We’re gonna fight him on a whole range of issues over the next four years. We think his philosophy is all screwed up. But right now, what the country needs is for us to compromise, get a deficit reduction deal in place, make sure middle class taxes don’t go up, make sure that we’re laying the foundations for growth, give certainty to businesses large and small, not put ourselves through some sort of self-inflicted crisis every six months, allow ourselves time to focus on things like preventing the tragedy in Newtown from happening again, focus on issues like energy and immigration reform, all the things that will make a determination as to whether our country grows over the next four years, ten years, 20 years, and if we could just pull back from the immediate political battles, if ya peel off the partisan war paint, then we should be able to get something done.”

I think, I think the Speaker would like to get that done. But an environment needs to be created not just among House Republicans but among Senate Republicans that says the campaign is over and let’s see if we can do what’s right for the country, at least for the next month! And then, we can re-engage in all the other battles that they’ll wanna fight.

This has to be one of the lowest moments of a very low presidency. Why should the Newtown killings bring any sort of “perspective” to a spending crisis that Barack Obama has created?

Wow, another bullshit right wing propaganda site. How many of these things are out there? I'm amazed so many of these exist. Who is paying for these sites?

You'll also notice Obama never said the quote Wehrwolfen used for the title of this thread and the article is hilarious partisan bullshit that's attacking the President for the most trivial of accusations.

Obama talks about the massacre in the same breath as raising taxes as the fiscal cliff approaches. He tied them together and you might want to ask why. Is he shamelessly using the tragedy to support his stance on raising taxes? It would seem so. The tactic of attacking the source repeatedly while failing to address anything that Obama actually said is just diversion and it's getting really old.

His meaning is that the partisanship that's being waged by the right wing is fucking everything up in this country and is stupid in the wake of such tragedies and that the right wing needs to get it's shit together and start playing ball to make things happen for our country. Not surprisingly that message was lost on the brain dead right wing and they tried to spin it into a message of evil.

Maybe he was misunderstood the way the Libs said he was when he mocked business owners when
he said that famous "“If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen”

The only thing those 20 murdered babies mean for this shitball and his crooked cronies is they have another bit of rubble to step upon on their climb to their goal, I.e. the complete and utter destruction of the Nation. In essence, the deaths of these 20 children are no less a political football than all those murdered when they are ripped from the womb.
