    Keeping it simple. When Romney was running for President he was constantly hounded for the "details" on his policies/plans.

    Why is it when Boehner says he will agree to tax revenue increases with cuts, Obama gets a pass when Boehner adds ..if the president will detail what and where he will make cuts?

    So Republicans need to be specific but Democrats do not. :cool:

    Because Boenher isn't in a position to negotiate.

    He already AGREED to tax increases. They are going to happen, regardless.

    If he were smart, he'd just agree to a number, and then make the president come up with specifics later, and take the heat for them.

    Why do you care?

    I don't think we are going to get out of this mess without both massive tax increases and massive cuts in spending. Everyone knows it, and the rest is just posturing.

    Nice avoiding the question, guy.

    Fact is, you are against things if Obama does them, not on policy reasons.

    No matter who won, cuts and tax increases were coming, and everyone knew it. The reason people got on Romney's case was that he pretended that you could cut another 5Trillion in taxes and increase pentagon spending by another 2 Trillion and still balance the budget.

    Thankfully, no one bought that.

    Boehner is playing a game of "You go first" with the president

    Obama has been there, done that and he is not going that path again

    Fact is, Obama does not have to go first. The tax increases and spending cuts are in place. Let the House do its job and come up with a bipartisan plan

    Again are you serious? I wish I were the mechanic for your car. Just bring it in and I'll let you know what's wrong and I'll fix it. Oh and don't ask me what I'm going to fix either. But I'll fix it. How much? I'll let you knw when I'm done.

    That's what you sound like.

    :cool:


    Good grief, the dimwits that support this guy.

    Again, you guys already agreed to these cuts and increases... when you kicked the can down the road to now on the hope that Obama would lose.

    But he didn't. Now you have to deal with it. If you want to go with a car analogy, it's paying for a $2000 repair because you didn't do the the $200.00 maintenance 30,000 miles ago.

    Do you ever address what people reply to you with or do you just want to post your own distorted lies?

    Seriously! Start a thread and just pontificate on it. Have nothing but your opinions with no facts and reply to yourself all day long.

    It will be just another day for you anyway. :eusa_eh:
