Is America ready to fall off the Obama cliff?

Report as

He's got it right where he wants it. Fall off the cliff, raise taxes that's what he wants and then blame the Republicans. He is one slick politician. And if the American people start to fuss then he'll step in to save the day.What a guy. I see he gave all his Washington buddies a raise today. Was that a nice thing to do or what.

I do give him credit. I don't think I've ever seen a politician as slick as him since Stalin. What is sad is the people cheering their own demise. All I hear is crickets from the media about this raise they gave themselves. Lets hear the left spin this. It's coming out of their pockets too.

They want even mention it and if that do it will be a one time thing.
Report as
Do you notice the libs don't mention Benghazi or any of the lies Obama has told? I agree they are cheering him on to our demise.

Maybe we need to go off the cliff. Who says it's a bad thing?? The Government needs to cut a lot of spending and this just forces them to do it.

That would be great except that I really can't afford to have a smaller pay check with all the prices rising on everything. Looks like 2013 will be a full blown depression

Both sides have put forth their own proposals and both sides have said that the other is ridiculous. The only difference between the two is that one won a presidential election on thier ideals.

If we go off the cliff then we start down a path of extreme austerity (+1 conservatives) taxes go way up (+1 liberals) and we head into another recession (+1 bankruptcy attorneys). I don't see why anyone would benefit from this.

I think we are headed for a depression. We can't take much more of this. All in Obama's plans. He knows exactly what he is doing.
Report as
The Republicans and Libertarians should be happy about this one though, our deficit's going to look pretty good if we do go off the cliff.

Obama did not create this cliff. Congress voted for it. It is self imposed.

He is the one pushing their creation right off into a major depression cliff all by design. Read the Communist Manifesto.

When does Obama start owning his own presidency?
Report as
Red, please research the bipartisan super committee of 2011. Congress owns this.
Report as
I guess if they would have passed a budget for the past 4 years, as by law they are supposed to do, we wouldn't be in such a mess. Remind me who has held all the control? Republicans? 1/3. Democrats? 2/3.
Report as
Red, again RESEARCH the bipartisan super committee...
Equal number dems and GOP. They are the reason for the cliff

You people who blame Obama for this cliff are whacked. It's the tax cuts bush put into effect they are going to repeal. I'm not saying Obama isn't to blame for his huge spending but you all need to blame all those involved. And I think we should fall off the cliff maybe it will tick off enough people so we can get together and get things changed

Thats why he pushed 90 mil to Al Gore for a failed solar project Solyndra
Huh?
Report as
Ummmm reread what I said
Report as
And in its place, comes the awesomeness of Tesla Motors and SolarCity. Solyndra was also a publicly owned company. If you knew anything about business, you would understand that businesses fail 50% of the time. The whole thing with green companies wasn't meant for profit. It was a head start, a boost towards the right direction. To raise awareness and boost people's interest towards new things. Like rebates on hybrid cars, water efficient toilets, Fcl light bulbs, and etc.
Report as
Yes and Obama knows so much about business and what works. Lol
Believe it or not it is the people that push companies toward new, cheaper and better products. The government is a force that prevents true capitalism from working as it should. Where people's life's are made better from products that serve them better and jobs become plentiful. When government gets in the fray you get higher costs and so many rules and regs. business flees and jobs are lost. The money Obama so freely hands out to businesses he knows zero about running you must remember it is OUR money he is throwing away. If these green companies are ever going to become viable they must first make a product the public wants and can afford and will better their life. Forcing it upon the public is not freedom and will only make us serfs to govt control. Free Market Capitalism isn't so free when govt gets in the mix.
Report as
He doesn't need to know what works. No one in the government run these companies. It's called a subsidy and its given to privately owned companies. No ones forcing Solarcity panels down their throats, people just like the idea and purchase it. No one's forcing people to buy Tesla cars, yet people like my neighbors are flocking in to put their orders for every new model. They're even starting to put up charging stations in the east coast due to high demand.

A) it's not obamas cliff, it belongs heart and soul to congress
B) I'm all for it. Dems won't cut, GOP won't raise rates. Everybody wants it fixed as long as its no skin off their nose.
Let it go.

Congress owns this not president Obama. The tea bags have caused a stalemate and they need to be voted out in 2014 if we are going to ever have a productive government again. The tea bags and neocons are destroying the republican party.

I believe they will be Cal. The Do Nothings need to go.
Report as
Agreed they are not expanding their base and as they become more extreme they are driving the moderate republicans into becoming independents and independents into becoming dems. I do fear fascism though, even if led by moderate dems it is not the way this country was intended to be.
Report as
Yes only Democrats/liberals/progressive/socialists should rule and pass all the laws they can while in power. Laws and more laws! Only liberal thought and America can finally become a socialist utopia! How dare those evil conservatives stop us. We demand chains! People are too stupid to be free.

Red, you can't hate the people because your beloved extremists are putting the O into the GOP

I'm terrified. I was at a noodle restaurant the other night that couldn't afford cable, so the only clear channel was Fox News. Dear pasta, I almost pooped my pants. I got nightmares the night after watching the segment on that monstrous obama fiscal cliff. I'm terrified, please save me oh mighty bus driver.

Yea its tuff. After living in la la land for so long. You might learn something by eating noodles.

Hey, those hand-pulled noodles were delicious. Chef Ming is an immigrant living the American dream and would appreciate it if you didn't call his noodles cheap. Otherwise his hoard of Friday night diners will pull their pitchforks on you.
