    So after the election, I said in here, and I meant it. That I was hopeful that now that he was back in Office Obama would start worrying about legacy and less about his base and he might actually get serious about Balancing the Budget and Reforming Entitlements.

    His plan, he out lined today blows that Hope right out of the water. It confirms to me that he is still as far left as ever, and has no intentions for working with the other side.

    It's really a laughable plan, with no spending cuts at all, and another 50 Billion stimulus. then there is how he wants congress to give him the power to raise the Debt limit all on his own.

    Clearly that is not a serious proposal, and he knows full well the GOP could never agree to it.

    So, as I feared Obama actually wants us to go over the Cliff. He wants everyone's taxes to go up, and Defense spending to be gutted. He knows he can get both with out any of the blame simply by not compromising with the GOP now.

    But, I don't really blame him. The GOP did this to themselves when they set up this fucking Cliff BS. They should have been able to predict that Obama would actually want it to happen.

    That way he can blame taxes going up on all people on the GOP, and start calling for "new" tax cuts for the Middle and lower brackets after the first of the year.

    It's going to be a very long 4 years, It is crystal clear to me now which direction Obama intends to go, the one I always thought he would go, despite holding out hope I was wrong.

    Enjoy it America, You voted for it.

    Of course it's not a serious proposal...That's the point.

    Then he can go out and call the republicans intransigent (even though only his toady underlings have ever met face-to-face with them) and his media buttbois will help him blame everything on the republicans.

    It's 1995 all over again, dude.

    Sure. It is about 4 trillion dollars in proposed budget cuts.....with specifics.....set forth by the Obama administration.

    Great reading.

    And....I am more a Rick than a Chumlee.

    Taxes are historically low, only the brainwashed believe otherwise. Federal taxes that is; for state and local taxes and fees continue to rise. Cuts to health care, for seniors as well as those who cannot or who chose not to purchase health insurance will fall to local sources, sources already laying off cops and teachers and firefighters and their support staff.

    Morons believe this can continue, we can all defend our homes, drill for water, treat our illnesses, fill potholes, discern the safety of our food, keep our air clean, etc. etc. and cut taxes. The irony of this is the odd dudes of the world believe the poor and working poor expect handouts, yet the callous conservatives expect a free lunch.

    Clower and Piven: Obama wants to destroy our economy, and redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world. Why this escapes people I'm not smart enough to understand - very, very tuff times ahead!

    He is working on destroying this country by spending too much money until the system falls apart.

    Another fucking Stimulus??? Does he think this country is full of idiots?

    He is a crack addict that is $100,000 in debt and stealing money from others to keep the habit going.
