    so sorry but you people were duped
    LINKS in article at site.

    Via WaTi:


    Since returning from a trip to Southeast Asia on Nov. 21, President Obama has managed to play three rounds of golf but has met face to face only once with House Speaker John A. Boehner, the man with whom he is trying to strike a deal on taxes and spending that could prevent another recession.

    “I think you’ve seen the president actively engaged in moving the process forward,” Mr. Carney said. “The president has made clear his willingness to negotiate and compromise.”

    Mr. Obama has spoken with Mr. Boehner by phone several times, and the conversations have been described as everything from “curt” to “cordial.” Nobody on either side has ventured to describe them as “productive.” [...]

    An administration official said the White House is hosting more than 25 holiday parties this month. A White House spokesman wouldn’t confirm that number but said the president and first lady are hosting parties for “volunteers, members of Congress, White House staff, Secret Service personnel, White House reporters and Americans from across the country.” In all, about 14,000 people will attend a White House party or reception this holiday season.

    all of it here

    The Republicans must be incredibly busy if they can't even find the time to extend the Bush tax cuts for the bottom 98 percent.

    Is their printer broken? Is the secretary out sick? What?

    Nothing ever changes. The son remains the same: poll: President Bush should cancel White House Christmas parties

    2008, while Rome burned, Bush partied.

    And here we will be next year.

    As soon as Congress gets its shit together and does what the People decided in this past election, I'm sure Obama will be more than happy to sign the bill.

    Until then, he has nothing more to do. He has told them what the People re-elected him to do, and now they just need to do it.

    What is taking them so long to write a bill that extends the Bush tax cuts for the lower 98%?

    Why is the GOP holding 98 percent of America hostage at the edge of the cliff?


    Hmmmm...

    Wrong. I did not vote for Obama.

    I am a Republican paleo-conservative. I stayed home on Election Day, and that is why it was the psychopaths, morons, liars, and hypocrites in the GOP that elected Obama, not me.


    And now the liars and hypocrites are holding 98 percent of America hostage. Simple fact. They could easily pass a bill to extend the cuts for the 98 percent today. Right now. This very moment.

    Then they could get down to the theater for the rubes about tax hikes and entitlement cuts.

    Does this mean they won't attend the party at the White House for them? I bet they do!

    No political advantage to making it look easy for either side.

    Also, the best leverage for both sides occurs in the waning hours before the abyss looms.

    Personally, I hope Boehner's cell phone goes dead the last ten hours.
