Mr. Obama’s lack of leadership confounds me. December 18, 2012

Posted by JP in Discussion, Politics, Stupidity, Venting.

I am thoroughly disgusted.

As a husband, father, and citizen I know in my house when money is tight we quit spending money we do not have. If I am able to make extra on the side that is great but I do not spend like I’m a millionaire if the money isn’t really there. That is COMMON SENSE and I don’t understand why Mr. Obama and the Democrats feel they can operate in a different reality than the rest of the world.

Mr. Obama must LEAD and CUT SPENDING and cease his childish political games. He is going to destroy this economy and bankrupt this nation just to satisfy some warped ideological agenda that most of the nation does NOT agree with.

CUT SPENDING NOW and make a realistic deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.

The White House on Tuesday rejected House Speaker John Boehner’s call for a fall-back option to avert the looming fiscal crisis, in a move the speaker’s office said “defies common sense.”

The feisty exchange came as both sides crept toward a possible middle ground in private talks. But underscoring the differences that remain, the White House resisted Boehner’s bid to craft a “Plan B” just in case those talks fail to yield a compromise before a Jan. 1 deadline — that’s when taxes are set to rise on everyone, followed by a wave of spending cuts.

“Every income tax filer in America is going to pay higher rates come Jan. 1 unless Congress acts,” Boehner said Tuesday morning, as he introduced his alternative plan.

Boehner called for taxes to rise only on households making more than $1 million. His plan also called for entitlement cuts and a tax reform debate next year.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, though, said it “doesn’t ask enough of the very wealthiest in taxes and instead shifts the burden to the middle class and seniors,” and cannot pass the Senate.

Within minutes, Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck fired back: “After spending months saying we must ask for more from millionaires and billionaires, how can they reject a plan that does exactly that?”

Buck accused President Obama of “moving the goal posts” and in the process “threatening every American family with higher taxes.”
