    A deal would mean:
    1. Obama would have to compromise
    2. Reid would have to compromise
    3. Obama could not bash Republicans at his inaugural or the SOTU speech.
    Hence:
    No deal, but thanks for playing.

  • JenBee

    Are you kidding me? Obama had to cut his vacation short for this, and the American people must PAY FOR IT, and pay for it we will. Besides, Obama has absolutely NO reason in hell to not go over the cliff… when we go over the fiscal cliff, not only does he get trillions in spending for his big-government orgy spending, but he also gets to ride in on his white horse and turn the Bush tax cuts into the Obama tax cuts for the middle class… and just imagine the wall-to-wall 24/7 Messiah coverage the Democratic Media Complex will bestow on him for being the savior of the middle class, our hero, the adult in the room, etc ad nauseum. Yeah, we’re all screwed but good.

    0bama and Reid came prepared to play a game of poker and Boehner came to play Old Maid.

    The country has not suffered enough self-induced punishment, just yet. I suggest shutting the government down, allowing the Bush tax rates to dissolve, military sequestration, and everyone share in the re-distributed pain.

    A good four years like that and America will be finally ready for Change You Can Believe In.

    HAVE YOU ALL HEARD ABOUT THIS EO THAT WAS SIGNED TODAY–so long as the “govt class” gets theirs, screw the rest of us right BHO???

    President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.

    According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he’ll now make $231,900 per year.

    Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.

    It is obvious the democrats want to go over the cliff. Then in Jan, there will be tax cuts for 99pct and in feb, negotiations over the debt ceiling

    Media will make Obama look like a hero and then they will continue to try to stimulate the economy with another housing bubble

    All the articles and comments on Gateway Pundit on my computer have lines through them? Is anyone else having this problem? Has the site been hacked by a troll?

  • The Triguy

    Kate,
    I have the same thing on mine and was wondering the same.

  • AUSONIUS

    I do think the democrat party should be referred to as the party of deviants, the marxist party, or both. I will not participate in the sanitized name they hide behind.

    The latest from “DHS Insider”

    [DH: Wait, you’re DHS—not some Wall Street insider.

    RB: So you think they are separate agendas? That’s funny. The coming collapse of the U.S. dollar is a done deal. It’s been in the works for years—decades, and this is one of the most important cataclysmic events that DHS is preparing for. I almost think that DHS was created for that purpose alone, to fight Americans, not protect them, right here in America. But that’s not the only reason. There’s the gun issue too.

    President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise.

    Where spending is concerned, it’s quite obvious he isn’t serious about getting it under control, and probably hasn’t been from the get-go, and anyone who says or claims otherwise is a fool.

    Even if the speaker caves I don’t think he will get the votes anyway. They should just vote to extend for 6 months. Let Obama and Reid reject that.

    Looks like zippy didn’t wait until the SOTU to trash Congress. SHOCKA!

    Notice one of the minimum requirements that he mentioned didn’t include deficit reduction NOW. Sometime in the future, which will never happen. Another SHOCKA! Let.It.Burn.

    Obama never passed a budget

    [President Barack Obama will be the first president in this great
    country who will not have passed a budget in his first term of
    office. He submitted a budget that was defeated by a vote of
    97-0. Not a single Democrat or Republican voted for it.

    What’s wrong with going off the cliff? Lots of spending cuts and taxes go back to the Clinton era rates when the budget was actually balanced. Let’s go off the cliff!

    We’re going off the cliff regardless. This is all theater. We can’t pay back our debt—period! We’re obviously not concerned about adding to our deficits and debt, and zippy’s statement confirmed he’s unserious.

    Oh we can pay off our debt. We’ve got plenty of money. We are the richest country on earth. After WWII our debt was something like 150% of GDP.

    Not that long ago, we were running budget surpluses. That was one of Bush’s main arguments for his tax cuts.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Got any kind of hard evidence (besides his own empty words) he was ever serious about getting the country’s financial situation under control, fool?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    it’s staged, all of it..

    What’s just as pathetic is that the Republicans play along, making their own little wailing noises about it. Once it became obvious that Obie and company weren’t interested in making a deal that would have some benefit to both sides, the Republicans should have just called it a day. But they don’t. Limp Boner keeps taking calls and going to meetings with the Dishonest-Negotiator-in-Chief, never really getting anything of any value out of any of it.

    The Republicans need to Let It Go. Either something really bad is going to happen, or it won’t. Either way, this is the outcome of bad-faith negotiations, and whatever is going to happen should be allowed to happen.

    What confuses me is that for many years, the Democrats decried the Bush ‘tax cuts for the rich’ At the time I was making 20k @ year and got what was to me a big tax cut. NOW, we find out that the Bush ‘tax cuts for the rich’, actually cut taxes for EVERYBODY. Didn’t hear about that from the National press or the Democrats.

    And apparently, if those same cuts aren’t extended the middle class is going feel the bite. Quite a feat for “tax cuts for the rich”, no?
