President Barack Obama promised in his campaign to prevent us from the cliff. Now he's blaming the Republicans for stalling budget talks. He knew they wouldn't budge, but he wasn't counting on that. Obama doesn't want a settlement. He wants us to fall over that cliff. He's smart. He'll get the money he wants from the wealthy, but he'll also tap us of modest means for what he can squeeze.
He lied to us. You liberals don't get it. Along with taking more tax money from everybody, he taps $500 billion from the defense budget and shortens up or eliminates your entitlements. So what do you liberals think of Obama's campaign rhetoric now? Creating more jobs? Liar! We still have huge unemployment and now all those defense employees will be unemployed! Not taxing us of modest means? Liar!
Obama's plan to turn this country around? Bull! He'll blame everything on the Republicans and win on two counts: The Republicans take all the blame and he gets all the money!
Maybe all those George Bush tax cuts weren't all they were cracked up to be. Obama's legacy will be "I screwed America, but look at all them great vacations I got!"
