Senator: ‘Increasingly clear Obama is comfortable going off the cliff’

Obama is not, by nature or ideology, a conciliator. He is not a centrist, and he’s not someone who is interested in the other side’s ideas. He knows what he wants to do, and he is hell-bent on doing it.

He is not just playing hardball as a matter of strategy; he has no interest in compromise and is angling to get his way entirely. And he wants to further damage the Republican brand in the process.

The way Obama probably looks at it is that Republicans will cave and he will either get most of what he wants, or the Republicans will hold fast and he can effectively blame them for taking us over the fiscal cliff

This entire article is replete with conflicting stories suggesting that people are going with different sources.

It may be too early to have a final reading, trust when one arrives the reader will find it here.

We will try as of today’s date to put them in perspective.

The Blaze on December 2nd led with an article, “John Boehner: ‘We’re Nowhere’ on Fiscal Cliff Talks.” 

With less than a month to go, House Speaker John Boehner said White House and GOP negotiators have made no progress on talks to avert the “fiscal cliff.”

“I would say we’re nowhere. Period. We’re nowhere,” Boehner (R-Ohio) said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

In an article published by Erick Erickson’s Red State, ” I am Thankful for John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy,” he goes on to pummel them for purging fiscal conservatives from  The Financial Services Committee; thus punishing them for being authentically fiscal conservatives; while replacing them with congressmen who are moderates.   This when the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations are supposed to be on going?

In today’s Wall Street Journal, ” GOP Makes Counter offer In Cliff Talks”  Team Obama is dead set on raising taxes on the “rich.”

The GOP offer was immediately rejected by the White House, but it provides the most detailed statement to date of what Republicans are willing to concede for now. It comes days after the White House put forward its opening bid in the high-stakes deficit talks. With both sides now having made preliminary offers, the parameters for future negotiations between Republicans and the White House are becoming clearer.

It is the desire of this site for no settlement to be reached, as stated before this is just another man-made crisis, let it blow up on Obama while the light shines on him as he vacations in Hawaii, he leaves for a three-week vacation in less that 13 days.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. 

The Weekly Standard

By DANIEL HALPER

Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming believes President Barack Obama is “comfortable going off the [fiscal] cliff.”

“I think the president is increasingly showing his hand that he is comfortable going off the cliff,” Barrasso tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD, in response to a question about President Obama’s negotiation strategy. “He’s not involving Republicans in the process. He was playing golf this weekend with Bill Clinton, Ron Kirk, and ex-DNC chair Terry McAuliffe. He’s not seeming to be one to work together. He seems to be lecturing more than listening. And I just think that it’s increasingly clear he’s comfortable going off the cliff.” (complete article below) Continue reading

Mark Levin: It is true, Bachmann was told to apologize or she might lose her intelligence committee post

By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

The solution for dealing with thugs and bullies is to call them out.  In this case let’s see if the gutless Obama has what it take to make it through one-third of a round at the Congressional Gym with an individual far more qualified to do his job.

You see, the federal government is all about creating more red tape and killing jobs from the left side of the aisle.

I’m not suggesting nor would it be conceivable that Congressman West would replace the “resident, no this would be a winner tells the loser in this case Obama once he regained consciousness that he will put a stop to these tactics or the next time he may not pull his punches.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Despite the NRO posting a story yesterday that denied Bachmann was threatened to apologize for her letters requesting a Muslim Brotherhood investigation or she might lose her position on the House Intelligence Committee.

Be sure to check this breaking story:

LETTER TO BOEHNER: 17 CONSERVATIVE LEADERS SUPPORT BACHMANN’S ISLAMIC INFLUENCE INVESTIGATIONby lburt
Breitbart: On July 27, seventeen leaders signed a letter expressing concern about criticism directed at Rep. Michelle Bachmann for requesting information from the Obama administration about possible links between the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. Departments of State and Justice. The seventeen signers of the letter are: David Barton, Founder […]

Mark Levin says that he knows for a fact it’s true and the NRO story is wrong. And Levin isn’t happy about it either.
