Early Friday evening, Obama angrily explained to the press that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) walked away from negotiations to raise the debt ceiling and reduce the deficit.

Obama said that he and the Speaker had agreed to a plan that would offer $1 trillion in discretionary spending cuts, $650 billion of modest cuts to entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security, and only $1.2 trillion in revenue increases. The revenue increases, he added, would not require tax increases, but only closing tax loopholes.

This plan was apparently even more generous to Republicans than the plan developed by the bipartisan group of Senators known as the “Gang of Six,” which was supported by many Republicans. Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other liberal Democrats were uneasy with the Gang of Six proposal because it called for cuts to entitlement programs that serve the poor and elderly, rather than raising taxes on the wealthy.

Earlier on Friday, Pelosi signaled she was willing to accept spending cuts so long as bedrock Democratic priorities are kept safe, in contrast to previously floated plans to raise the eligibility age of Social Security or Medicare, which Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) derided as “[people] who’ve been sitting on their asses their whole lives telling some woman who’s been standing on her feet as a store clerk that 67’s too early for her — she should do it till she’s 70.” As Talking Points Memo explains:

The plan would place a firewall between entitlement spending and the threat of default, upsetting GOP plans to force deep, immediate cuts to those programs. And if, as a result, the GOP declined the offer, Democrats would agree to punt the questions of entitlement spending and tax revenues to a future, streamlined legislative process.

The potential endgame, Pelosi said, would meet an arbitrary GOP requirement that Congress must only grant President Obama as much new borrowing authority as he’s willing to accept in spending cuts, and leave for a later date a twinned fight over revenues and social insurance programs.

Despite her reservations, though, Pelosi was at least willing to consider a similar plan, and Obama promised that he would try to persuade his party to accept a balanced plan that includes moderate cuts to entitlement programs in order to reduce the deficit. Boehner, on the other hand, simply walked away from the negotiations. This led Obama to mock the Republicans, telling them they had “to ask themselves, can they say yes to anything?”

After Obama’s press conference, Speaker Boehner held one of his own, in which he accused the President of asking for $1.2 trillion in revenue increases, despite earlier agreeing only to ask for $800 billion.

  1. I’m new to this forum so hopefully I am doing this correctly.

    Part of me wants to say to the R’s “F” it, and let’s ignore the debt ceiling and play their game of chicken. Then, the responsible part of me who was raised to pay bills on time and to try to never over-extend my budget, tells me “no it’s a bad idea.” Not to mention disastorous.

    And although I wish at times he would feel the same, I am a supporter of this President and try to be sympathetic to him in regards to the immovable force he has to work with (the Rs). IF this deal of Pelosi’s goes, it is far better than the others. At least I know I’ll get my SS check.

  2. The GOP is now certifiably insane. They are acting like spoiled 5 year olds throwing a tantrum in the aisle of the grocery store because Mommy won’t buy them a damn candy bar.

  3. It is becoming clear that, whatever the motive (racial, political, religious), the main aim of Republicans is to stop a second term for our “Black, Democratic, Muslim” President. Cooperation therefore is counterproductive, and the American people be damned.

  4. The only constituency the Republicans actually SERVE and serve very faithfully is the VERY RICH. That includes special interests and big business besides the super rich individuals who contribute the most to their “campaign re-election funds”. It is ALWAYS the middle and lower classes who suffer from the Republicans’ absolute GREED in serving and protecting the very rich by refusing to xlose tax loopholes for them, and instead insisting on cutting SS and Medicare and the programs which the neediest people in this nation need to survive., The rich don’t give a damn and neither do the Republicans at all. Without compromise there would have ben no civil rights legislation. Now the republicans just vote no, no, no, no, no.

  5. OBAMA, one big ass mistake America.

    For you freaks who have posted comments, this idiot we have now as president is willfully destroying the US. What is wrong with you????? You have to stop spending more than you take in! What can’t you understand?

    JorisHeise, You endorse this lying fool! You state when he lied about being a ! Oh I knew better but you idiots who voted, many times I might add, thought it was OK!? Let’s see, Muslims attack our Country, the whole idiology seeks to destroy America, and you vote in a MUSLIM. HOW FRICKEN STUPID CAN YOU BE????

    CUT SPENDING NOW ACCROSS THE BOARD!!! Starting with this jackass in the whitehouse and his budget for travel. What is wrong with you idiots??? Your household can’t run this way can it????

    • So your just going to ignore the First Amendment cause you don’t like the guy? And Muslims didn’t attack the US, Muslim extremists attacked the US. So with your logic all Christians go to Westboro Baptist right?

  6. How dare you to call the President of the United States a jackass, a lying fool, not a Christian but a Muslim, and the voters of the U.S. idiots ! Obama kicked your ass in the previous election and will kick your Republican asses in the next presidential election ! It is childish fools like you who will ensure his re-election. Go take a nap you brainless baby !!

  7. I simply cannot accept the fact that the GOP are so glued to their ideology that they will allow our country’s financial mess to become worse. Not all the Republicans are rich, so where is their base that surely by now must understand how much damage this is going to do to their own lives and to the lives of their children. Or is that the problem; that in this are of “murdock” influenced media reporting they don’t believe the facts?

  8. hello
    mpidude……
    there was no deficit when Clinton was President…………

    Geo Bush gave huge tax breaks to the rich and deregulated till our economy was brought to it’s knees by the bankers and speculators. Unemployment exploded under his watch.
    Geo W Bush started an unnecessary war that has cost us thousands of American lives
    and countless BILLIONS of dollars in Iraq.
    Geo Bush enriched war monger companies like Halliburton while CUTTING veterans services.
    My son was in Iraq with inadequate war gear.
    The Republicans had NO PROBLEM with deficit spending when Geo Bush was president.
    And they voted to rise the debt ceiling 7 times while he was president.
    What is wrong with you ?
    How old are you
    that you don’t know that Obama was left with a HUGE DEBT when he took office.
    At least give responsibility for the mess we are in
    to the people that made the mess.
    Republicans.
    You make me ashamed to be an American
    and physically ill with your horrible bigotry and your lies.
    I imagine you call yourself a Christian too.

  9. I’m a 64 year old disabled woman, and single. I’m physically sick to my stomach thinking my disability check will not be here on August 3.

  10. John Boehner does not know what compromise means. He isn’t worried about the middle class on down only about the wealthy. Look at the large corporations and see what they paid in income tax for 2010. One of the largest in the world (GE) paid ZERO income tax for 2010. Lets get realistic and cut spending and cut out the tax loopholes and get our country gping again,

  11. to: kester dumbass, or denman. You just proved my point. You get mad at me for saying OBUMMER is a MUSLIM. Your own people, Horris hissy (third comment) aknowledged him as a Musk Melon (muslim). He is tried and true a melon head like you. The media even corrected his moronic mis-statement “muslim faith, you mean christian faith, yeah christian faith” read it and weep you kool-aid drinker! And you piss-ants said Bush was an idiot.

    HOW DARE I???? Kiss my rosie red reproduction rod turd face. Let your buddy pull his Anthony Wiener out of your butt and you can lick all the corn and peanuts off of it. Spending is the problem not taxes. Hey, you want the big bad corporations to pay more??? What about GE??? Huh, in the sheets with OBUMMER, didn’t pay a dime in taxes yet made billions in profits. WOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW! OH WAIT, GE SUPPORTS One Big Ass Mistake America doesn’t it. Well that’s OK then. How about every American paying some taxes! Invest in our Country instead of bleeding it dry! Please, 48% don’t even pay taxes at all and most get something back.

    And the little morons cried, wah wah wah all the way home cause they didn’t want to work and didn’t get their binki from the government. Stop sleeping with a pillow you may kill that last brain cell of yours! It’s not that Murdock is great, it’s just that finally their’s a different opinion than the “lame stream media” that you guys are so influenced by. Before you criticise the right, for our media, shut down NPR, and the LSM and see how you feel. Put some, no no, a lot of rat poison in your kool-aid next time. You are a good place to start you fricken vegatable head.

  12. the ad.works…….. Well let’s get this OBAMACARE going so the Prez can tell you to take a few pain killers and die! You obviously aren’t able to contribute anymore to society. Let’s get the “death panel” to decide your outcome!

    thehawk……. Boy the first responsible thing out of any “dumbocraps” mouth. Lets close the loopholes and make GE pay. Again you made my point! The first “dumbocrap” to acknowledge the loopholes that OBUMMER created.

    gma…….. wah wah wah. Yep he inherited a big problem and has done nothing but cry about it ever since. He’s soooooooooo smart you would think he could figure it out wouldn’t you. GET US OUT OF IRAQ< AFGANHASTAN< LIBYA< GERMANY< JAPAN

  13. This is not about people on welfare thisis about people who have worked very hard and contributed to these benefits for many years. The thought that my grandmother, who worked for many years (40 yrs) and survives on Social Security and medicare, is in danger of not receiving her check is a scary thought. However, we should look at how the “Large businesses of the US” take advantage of the people who work so very hard. Yet these corporations have outsourced many of the jobs that by the way should have been kept here in the US to benefit the well working individuals of the country, yet the Republican parties of past years allowed them to receive tax breaks and they still went to other countries for cheaper labor. We as Americans should be more aware of such issues in our country and not contribute to the growth of such companies by purchasing their products. Pro American is keeping businesses within the US and those companies who are building work for the MAJORITY of our citizens – AKA: The working class. Many forget that the people who worked for many years are the ones who built our wonderful country yet our Government is abandoning them, the same way they are abandoning our very own boys and girls shipped overseas to fight for something that has only hurt our country in more ways than one.
    I say educate yourselves when you make purchases to know the true companies who are really helping our citizens… not the wonderful companies who asked for a bail out and are only hurting our Americans more, by sending their products to other countries for lesser labor, our banks who we bailed out with tax payer money only to increase our interest rates on credit, decline mortgages and loans to susatin businesses and take homes from hard working people without blinking an eye. As Americans we should pull together and really make conscious efforts to avoid such institutions who are the true welfare recipients ripping off our very good people.

  14. Hey, jerkwad mpidude! Time for you to learn some history–but then you were an F student in high school, weren’t you? You’re just what the GOP loves, an ignorant, big-mouthed, ignoramus who loves to substitute his vulgarity and ignorance for the facts. You’re an eyesore on the world. Go jump off a bridge and do us all a favor, if you don’t care to moderate your prejudices and realize that you’re more of a cause of whatever mess we’re in than in the President.
    The cause of our current problem is the GOP’s stated determination, at the outset of Obama’s presidency, that Pres. Obama will go down in history as a failed president. They have never varied one inch from that goal. Regardless of what Obama offers, the GOP will say “no.” You can’t expect them to be reasonable when a turd like mpidude is the audience to whom they are pandering. Too bad Republicans have an anus like him for a mouth.
    But as long as the GOP has that stance, they believe they have the President stymied. This will come back to bite them, however, because there’s an election in another 18 months. We’ve already seen what happens when the GOP tries its hardcore game–they lose, just like they lost in New York. There will be voter fury the likes of which we haven’t seen in ages.
    Then, mpidude, you can go to Mexico and whore for the drug cartels. Jerk.

  15. When the GOPstapo members of the US Supreme Court legislated the safe harbor zone from the bench (FCC v Pacifica) Brennan dissenting reminds future generations that the stated intent of the 3 member majority (and the 2 that went along with it) was to benefit children not weak minded adults (like Jaggin Johnny) so here’s a link to my blog where the actual problem is being discussed – follow the dates http://blazintommyd.tumblr.com/ – I wish TCM aired “The Male Animal” more often. The Sinclair Lewis (“It Can’t Happen Here”)/James Thurber depiction of “Americanism” is the epitome of the “Conservatives”. RayGun was their ultimate Fuhrer. He’s dead and the whole schlemiel is obsolete. What America needs is a real Left Wing to deal with these Nazoids the way the SU dealt with Adolf Hitler.

  16. Don’t have time to be anything but cynical. I hope this doesn’t make him fluster up and spit. He ought to wait until the last moment to invoke the 14th Amendment, then be chatty about it. Then, off on the campaign to regain the House!

  17. mplitude, I can’t believe you are not a paid shill. Morons usually can’t go on so long. Say hello to the Koch Brothers for me.

  18. pianojazz……History????? I see that you didn’t mention any facts when it came to history! Because the historical facts go against you, you pubic distortion.

    Yes the wasscawy wepubwicans are, AGAIN, the reason for OBUMMERs failure right?! You are STILL proving my point. Foreskin’s policies have nothing to do with it I guess!? The only time the republicans get voted out is when they don’t go far enough!!! WE vote them out!!! DUD-OCRATS keep voting in Peter-Puffers like Franky-boy, who by the way, was screwing some of the “guys” at freddie-mac and prevented inquiries and stated “there is nothing wrong at FM and FM, they are well run companies”. The next year, BAM, the housing markets fall. The american people have to buy all the houses that the democrats made the banks provide loans to people who couldn’t afford them.

    sue…… my comments have nothing to do with robbing SS and MC from the people who have earned and paid into the system. I mentioned WELFARE and ILLEGAL ALIENS getting the money that should be going to the SS and MC folks. Your side continues to take from the system giving it to the undeserving!!! UNIONS are the biggest contributor to jobs going overseas!!!!!!!!!!!! Unions PREVENT hard effecient work. Just keep wanting more and more. Look at GM, the corp was losing thousands on each car they made and the UNION wanted more. Ford the same way! A worker was interviewed and asked dwhat he does, said it takes him 4 hours to do his job, reads a book for the remaining 4 hours and wants more benefits from the corp. Point your finger, one points at me, four point back at you numnuts.

  19. A great illustration of what is really wrong with this country–lack of education, not to mention a lack of class, coupled with a pathetic sense of what is appropriate to write in a public forum.

  20. I’m so sick of the behavior of the GOP that there isn’t a chance that I’ll vote for anyone Republican this coming election. I’m sick of their holding the middle class – upper, lower, poor and anything in-between that isn’t in the 1% bracket of wealthy Americans in this country. All they are interested in is protecting their special interest groups starting with the oil companies rather than what is right for the collective majority in this country. We’re suffering out here guys (and ladies) and if you don’t change your ways, so will you. This has been going on now since last election day and I’m sick of it…and anyone I happen to discuss it with, INCLUDING anyone who voted with the GOP in the last election if they make less than $250K, less or unemployed! STOP. YOU’RE GOING TO LOSE THE NEXT ELECTION. President Obama has the best interests of the silent majority in mind and is bending over…literally, to try to make this work. Please HELP NOT HINDER!!

  21. One uneducated person who will say anything has come to dominate a forum where everyone is of the opposite opinion. This is easy to do when you’re not face to face, but this individual would not be so brave if this conversation took place in a public venue. And if he were, he would quickly be arrested for assault. Get off the ‘net and into the public! Boehner would not be so brave if all of the Social Security and Medicare recipients were right outside the Capitol to make their voices heard. I think a public march on the Capitol is the best way those who wish to oppose the “Gang of Six” can make their voices heard.

  22. Hey mpidude, you have the same moron intellect as W bush. you haters are so sick you are beyond pity. The only thing you make sense on is that there should be some spending cut, but our President did not create it, he inherited a situation that left him no choice to avoid a financial meltdown created by W when he lifted all the controlls on the financial institutions to “allow free market” to operate freely. What you fools don’t take into account is the fact that the human factor is susceptible to the malady of GREED, and it must have regulation and accountability. AMEN!!!

  23. Rep John Boehner is working himself into the position of becoming the next
    POTUS [president of the United States] by allowing the U.S. gov’t to be put
    in position of doing an technical default on its legal obligations.Once
    President Obama legally looses the coming election..the Repubs will be in
    the legal position to take full control of the american economy and institute
    the start of their fascist gov’t.President Obama never stated anywhere that
    he was a “christian”.95% of the american people elected him as President due
    to his ‘charm’ in the media.When he was sworn in President Obama was faced
    with the real probability of the United States quickly sliding into a new
    1930s styled >depression< .He did what he could to prevent the US economy from
    going into a deep depression.Instead..the U.S.taxpayer got an on-going
    recession.The Repub party is partly responsible for the financail condition
    of the current american economy.When Pres Obama came into office the Repubs
    quietly decided that they were going to stop him and destroy his presidency
    because they simply could not tolerate an educated black man being president.
    The only republican who can actually safely guide the US out of its current financial “crisis” IS Ron Paul of Texas.He is the only person in the congress,
    besides former Pres Clinton, who knows what to do to bring the US govt back to financial solvency and the Republican party is scared to death that he might
    actually get elected to being president.At present time in Washington DC..the
    repubs are playing a very dangerous game of “chicken” with the country because
    they want to be able to directly control the daily economy of the USA.Some of the Repubs ARE on the payroll of the Bilderberg Group of Europe and the RothChild family of Italy and German.President Obama IS a member of the Bilderberg
    Group and was installed as president by the Bilderberg Group.Check it out! Its
    time for the AMERICAN CITIZEN to take back their gov’t by whatever legal means is necessary.Its time for the 2nd american revolution! Regards.Scott Wayne. The
    Moneyworkz [tm].Las Vegas.

  24. It is way past time for the average AMERICAN CITZEN to find some backbone
    and rise up and take back their country.The avg american citizen has as much
    common sense and can run the gov’t just as well as any of the people who got
    elected to their “offices”? For 150 years…the people elected to Congress
    have been ‘shafting’ american citizen. The main reason most of these people
    went to congress was to get their hands into the public treasury as often
    as they could…to enrich themselves at the expense of their fellow citizens and make it “look” like they were doing something on behalf their citizenry.Its well past time for the avg american citizen to find some backbone somewhere and do what they need to take back and run their own gov’t.The U.S.gov’t was started by the Knights of Templar with funds & valuables stolen from gov’t wars in Europe.The current U.S.gov’t was founded during an american revolution.Its way past time for the avg american citizen to ‘wake up’ and do what they need to do to take back their gov’t from the congressional pawns of the Bilderberg Group and the RothChild families.As bad as he may be as president..once president obama leave office…the Bilderber Group will install their own repub candidate as president.THEN you are going to see a true fascist gov’t take full control of the U.S.economy and this is what the European Bilderberg Grp bankers have been waiting to get for 100years. regards, Scott Wayne.The MoneyWorkz [tm].comcash1@gmail.com

  25. I cannot believe these TP GOP apologists. These are exactly the kind of people I never want to see running the country.

    Why would any middle class person want to join a party of people like these, people who don’t realize that there are more important things in the world than a balanced budget, such as quality of life, health care, education, and investing in the future.

    What do reasonable people do when they need to spend more than they are taking in?

    They get a mortgage. They get a loan. And they get their credit limit increased.

    Irresponsible people overdraw their credit or force their children to go without necessities when raising the credit limit will help a family through a crisis.

    But the TP GOP fundamentally don’t believe in Social Security or Medicare and want to see these fail and people suffer, confident that Obama will get the blame.

    They are barbarians. America was strongest when the rich paid more. The middle class cannot handle the tax cuts given to them.

    But the ax handle, too, is made out of wood.

  28. mpidud
    Your messages are so profane and abusive and arrogant that I think your foul rants should be removed from this article. There is nothing in them that anyone can learn from, and I think most of us, like me, just don’t bother to read through them.
    Quiet down and don’t keep boring us with full-cap, heavily emphasized crap.

  29. How about the president place Washington, DC, under martial law,
    call in the military to surround the Capitol, and not let these
    crazy legislators out of the building until they’ve come to an
    equitable resolution to this whole mess?

  30. I am a retired Truck driver, only retirement is SS.

    Long story short i paid into the SS system for 56yrs.
    Not 20yrs or 1 term as a lot of public workers do with a fat double dip check.
    My wife and I lost our home and life savings in a fire Thanks to a slippery INSURANCE Co. (I really felt fuzzy when the Insurace co’s were bailed our)

  31. You wrong-wings are still making my point for me.

    history fan…… can’t take the truth so take me off right??? SILENCE ME in a public forum. Full cap letters? Look at prebleborn, and he can’t spell!!! See, “dumbocrats”

    allfullofpoop…. Yes I can see how your household was one who got the home loan that was above your means!!! Take out a loan to buy a house, increase your credit line, get more help from the government! Uh, irresponsibility for sure! See this is the difference between the “RIGHT-WING and the WRONG-WING” parties! You idiots cry for more free help. We on the “RIGHT-SIDE” would cut our budgets to fit with our income. If that didn’t work, WE would get a second job! In the real world out here, a family can’t just increase the credit line, Oh my God you are stupid! See this line of thinking failed with the home loans, it is failing in our government, and it fails in the household!!! Can you say “BANKRUPT”????

    Do I read you right??????? You say “””the middle-class can’t handle the tax cuts given them”””??????? Well you are not only a moron but a STUPID MORON. The middle class are the ones that are paying taxes because of their work! THEIR sweat and blood!!! I know I know, YOU want the taxes that they got back, YOU HAVEN’T EARNED IT!!! THEY DID!!! You want more money, GET A JOB freak!!!

    anni414….. Uneducated??????????? Why I’ll have you know that I went to Columbia right along with one big ass mistake america! Yeah, I attended Columbia University when your Savior was their. We had the same EXACT class schedule AND I stayed in the same dorm as he did. We had so much fun, well, I did see, I always sat behind him in EVERY class and flicked his ears constantly!!! In fact, I am why he has those huge ears of his!!!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Get a life you losers!!!! OHOSER didn’t vote to raise the debt ceiling when he was playing house in the senate. WHY should we NOW????

    Oh yes I am inteligent! you HAVE to be smart to write the TRUTH and berate you fools at the same time! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha GO RON PAUL!!!

  32. During the Bush adm.the debt ceiling was raised 7 times…thats right 7 times. Are we looking at something else here? Are the Rs trying to make sure this ‘black president does not get reelected? I say we need to find a way to punish these Rs that won’t raise the debt ceiling because they are deadbeats! They passed this spending and borrowing during the previous adm. Now they don’t want to pay the bills! Clinton left office with a 0 deficit and look what the republicans did. Raise taxes on the rich do not take from the elderly disabled and poor.by cutting these citzens benefits (which they already paid for through their medicare taxes) it could be life threatening. The rich won’t even feel it. They claim the rich are developing jobs well where are those jobs? Mr President stand firm most of the citizens stand by you!

  33. I’m not sure there is a perfect fix for this mess but cutting social security and medicare is a surefire way for any politician to be a “1 termer”. I try to vote republicon most of the time but I just could’nt bring myself to do so after Bush. If the republicons want my vote again they are going to have to close the incredible # of tax loopholes that are available to the wealthy. We don’t need a whole slew of new taxes. We just need to close loopholes and collect on the taxation currently in place and stop spending far beyond our maens or else we will always be sucking hind tit to well-disciplined,communist nations. And lets not forget you seemingly mindless,brainwashed, party loyalists – Both sides of the fence irresponsibly raised the debt ceiling numerous times. It is time to tighten up & pay the piper.

  34. what the f@$% is an mpidude? Ya wanna cuss, then lets go at it. ya wanna talk, go to Palin and Bachmann and ask you dumb questions to those two morons, then all three of you can go to Alaska and look out Palin’s back door and see Russia. So mpidude, use your PC for more than something you can put your hat on, that is if you even have something small enough to put a hat on.

  35. Why is that you republican,BASTARD Want to Attack seniors first,by taking away our health care,and reducing our SSI? The TEA PARTY BASTARDS,ARE THE DEATH PANEL PARTY! YOU MORONS WANT TO HURT THE POOR,WHILE YOU LET THE RICH SCAM AND RAPE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! I HATE YOU CAPITALIST BASTARDS!!!

  36. It is amazing how many of you inteligent people in the wrong wing can’t spell.

    Thank You Thom for thinking I am Rush!!! WOW, you are making me blush. It’s not BLIND HATRED. It’s HATRED for you mind numb robots that don’t take the time to study what your flap eared boy in the white house is doing. You hated Bush just the way I dispise elephant ears. All the politicians are the same up there but wrong-wingers are so much worse with commies in your party. BLIND is you lazy people wanting a welfare check from the ones who work, and not realizing your party has designed the system to keep YOU dumb and lazy.

    Look at history, if you robots can read. Unions fight for the little guy. But they fight so hard they put the company out of business. If the free market was able to run, GM would be history.

    joquinmental….. you stated to let the free market run. I agree. GM would have been out of business and so would Chrysler. But wait, the wrong-wing would lose their funding, er a, the political contributions from the unions. Oh wait, that wouldn’t be bad cause flop ears could still get billions illeagally from overseas donors like in the last election.

    dadsspook57…… what’s a dud spook???? you spook your kids 57 times??? You said lets go at it and cuss. You didn’t cuss once in your message. You can’t even pay attention in a 100 word message. HOW IN THE HELL CAN YOU BE EXPECTED TO PAY ATTENTION TO A PRESIDENTIAL RACE INVLOVING THE COUNTRY????? You lame brain idiots should be institutionalized and NEVER be able to vote because you are too STUPID to understand the consequences!!!

    Johnpeterlicker…… Yes the TEA PARTY are the ones that come up with OBUMMERCARE and the TEA PARTY are the death panels that would cause the ad.works to take pain pills as your savior stated and wait to die. MY GOD YOU POEPLE ARE STUPID. YOU ARE THE ONES THAT ARE BLIND. YOUR party is the one that have destroyed SS and want to kill you people in Medicare.

    AH what the hell!? You people are all too stupid to understand. You institute Flap Ears healthcare and you people will eventually die from his management of it. Then we will be rid of most of you deadbeats and we can run the county like it should be.

    TAH TAH……….. for now. This has been much too fun pissing you jerks offs off.

  37. Hello my foul mouth idiot. Give me your real name coward and I will check whether or not you actually attended Columbia U. Your dorm mate got his law degree and became President of the United States of America. Where has your career led you ? Did momma wake you from your nap yet ? Have you ever served your country in the military ? Have you ever read a history book ? Do you know what the American Constitution is ? You need to read it carefully to see how it protects the American people from fanatics like you. Settle down, be calm, and take another nap.

  38. If you did in fact go to Columbia, or any other college or university in America, you seem to have learned nothing. My guess is you did go, for a while, and then flunked out, if any part of what you say is true. To other commentators: I think ignoring this guy is the quickest way to stop his rants.
    Back to the article topic: My guess is that regardless of the consequences to America and the world, the Republicans are so dedicated to destroying the Obama administration that they don’t care much about the fallout. They could then say–see,the President Obama (and the Democrats) failed just as we predicted.
    Then they could sweep in and really create corporatocracy and a theocracy and whatever else they want and the rest of can sink down into our 1984 world, providing drones for the corporations and fodder for the ongoing (but never exactly specified) wars.

  39. Republican Pledge to Corporate America:
    *We pledge to eliminate Social Security so businesses are no longer obligated to pay 6.2% FICA tax on behalf of their employees. This will allow American companies to increase their annual profit margin and compete with countries that have slave labor. Eliminating this program will also allow our party to place claim to decreasing the National Debt by $ 2,585.484 Billion dollars.
    *We pledge to eliminate Medicare so businesses are no longer obligated to pay 1.45% FICA tax on behalf of their employees. This will allow American companies to increase their annual profit margin and compete with countries that have slave labor. Eliminating this program will also allow our party to place claim to decreasing the National Debt by $ 350.842 Billion dollars.
    *We pledge to eliminate Medicaid so businesses are no longer burdened with state or federal taxes to help children, the aged, blind, and/or disabled people. The misfortunes of the people taking advantage of this program are not the responsibility of corporate America!
    *We pledge to eliminate the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) so businesses are no longer obligated to pay their employees the state or federal minimum wage rate. This will allow American companies to increase their annual profit margin and compete with countries that have slave labor. Dictatorial ship of hourly wages by corporate America will allow them to pay employees what they feel he or she is worth, without federal government intervention.
    *We pledge to eliminate Unions, and the collective bargaining rights they have to increase wages, healthcare, retirement, vacation and paid days off. The dictatorial ship for these benefits-if any-shall be the sole right of the business owner, not the people who have been given the privilege to work at their facility.
    *We pledge to eliminate all rules and regulations placed upon corporate America by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). These organizations have unfairly penalized corporate America, and have taken away the competitive edge for American companies. Eliminating this program will also allow our party to place claim to decreasing the Federal Debt by the same amount of money normally allocated for these programs.
    *We pledge to make sure Mr. Obama is a one term president.

    You have reached a low that I have never seen on any other website. You deliver a monologue, use foul names for an argument, not just of President Obama, but most of the people on this website who disagree with you. You provide not the slightest evidence for any of your angry statements. There is no logic and no reasoning behind any of these.
    If you were in an actual debate with a person who disagrees with you, would you call the President a “foreskin” (this is REALLY disrespectful), and I object. I don’t care if you disagree with Democrats and President Obama, but what parts of your argument are you proving with name calling, and disrespect not only to the president but to the people on this website. By the way, I loved this sentence:”inteligent people in the wrong wing can’t spell”
    You are one angry man, and you seem to think sweeping (and statements without a single fact to back them up), profanity on this site is some kind of an argument.
    I think you are potentially dangerous. Every time I read something you wrote, I think of the Norwegian shooter who killed nearly 100 people. Or Timothy McVeigh. I hope your limit yourself to verbal rants.

  41. Taking us into war with lies, bush and chaney should be arrested for treason! to let the foxes in the finacial hen house and two wars is why the deficet is out of control, do the math GOP & Tea Party! we the people have to pay for Bush and Chaney greed.

    As per the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Mr. Ryan’s proposal would raise the Share of Spending on Health Care for a Typical 65-Year-Old with a Standardized Health Insurance Benefit; by Year 2022 cost to the Beneficiary’s-TAP- would be 61% and the government’s responsibility would be 39%, by Year 2030 cost to the Beneficiary’s-TAP- would be 68% and the government’s responsibility would be 32%, as you can see the cost increases will be passed directly to the lower and middleclass healthcare participant.

  44. Obama is doing a GREAT job! Republications are trying to undermined his progress, but GOOD will prevail. Obama will be re-elected, so you better just get used to it, and stop being a so loser.

  45. kesterdipshit…….. AS A MATTER OF FACT I DID serve in our Military. Wouldn’t be where I am today. I could have easily been on welfare as I got my girfriend pregnant. But IIIIIIIIIIII realized MY RESPONSIBILITY and got a job, learned a trade and raised my family. Own a business today! Having trouble paying taxes though!

    I have rights given to me through our Constitution. You do to, but when my “right to pursue happiness” is hendered by excess red tape, having to support lazy people, illegals, you know, worthless people like you, that’s when I lose my rights!!!

    HOW DARE YOU question my attending Columbia. Isn’t it IRONIC, or would it be MORONIC that you want me to give you my info so you can check if I went to Columbia?????? That’s all we want from your Savior, Barack INSANE OBAMA!!! I have as much credibility having attended Columbia as he did. By the way my real name is “BARRY SOETORO” or Barry Sore Toe. Born in Kenya.

    historyfan….. And you couldn’t detect the sarcasm in my having attended Columbia? Still proving my point, you zombies can’t read a sentence and figure out the writers intent. No wonder you voted in the Muslim insurgant. Yes we the “RIGHT WING” instead of the “WRONG WING” are intent of destroying this imposters’ presidency as he is a LIAR! IMPEACH HIM NOW!!!

    I like that you want to silence me by saying I am dangerous. Take away my right to FREE SPEECH and that will fix it. Barry Soretoe WILL take away your rights!!!

    freeatlast or free-to-die……. You NO DOUBT are UNION. $27/hr and you can’t go to disneyland!?? Well shut down that corporation and make them pay more cause you can’t live within your means baby!!!! You can’t manage your budget! Now let’s see here, who does that sound like??? OH, OUR GOVERNMENT!! Yes raise taxes so we can all go to Disneyland!!! Zombie!

    HHHAAAOOOWWWWW in the crap do you figure that Bush and Cheney are to blame for the BP spill????????? Prices shooting up????? Because your FLOP EARED PRESIDENT shut down drilling, after they granted a permit to drill knowing that the rig was sub-standard. Get informed!!! Bush only THREATENED to drill offshore and prices come down.

    I too weld. I don’t smoke though but I know the “CAUTION… MAY CAUSE CANCER” warning. You breathe in those fumes from the weld rods all day and probably smoke 4 packs a day and you blame the corp for BEZENE??????????????? Why you couldn’t even BEGIN to go to court or participate in a scientific study to determine if the BENZENE caused your cancer!!! GREED!?!?!?!?!?!?! Listen to your ass hero, $27 “chump change” “pay me more”!?!?!? Workers have already united through the unions and look at how Detroit turned out! Looks to me the Union didn’t care about you having not protected you against the BENZENE!!! Wah Wah Wah

    Jesus will be disgusted with you having depended on a union for your welfare instead of HIM. Don’t worry about Bush and Cheney. YOU and YOU ALONE will have to answer for what YOU did with your life. He won’t listen to your whining at the Judgement my friend! “Oh, the big bad corp, Oh, I didn’t make enough! Oh, my pussy hurts”

    GREED? Buddy look at yourself. Money is all you have COMPLAINED about. I say again let the good ole OBUMMERCARE you believe in help you out freak. “Take some pain pills and die! You are no longer useful to society!!!” Quoted by OBAMA hero, not me! Oh, and have a good day!

  46. In response to mpidude – ur president was born in Hawaii UNITED STATES. Just because “The Donald” tried to say he is a muslim doesn’t make it so. President Obama is an American idiot. He inherited a mess from the Bush REPUBLICAN presidency and the Republican idiots are now trying to hold the country hostage by not reaching an agreement regarding funding. As usual the idiot Republicans only care about protecting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. Those who make more should pay more. Its time to give the low and middle income a break. Obama should stick to his guns and repeal the Bush tax cuts.

  47. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!!!!! President Obama is an American “IDIOT”.

    My goodness, you freaks just keep making my point for me. THIS IS SOOOOO FUN!

    And wittal Barry Soetoro cwied wah wah wah all the way home cause he couldn’t get his wittle way. He got to capidal hill and found the campaign was a big joke, the media helped him covwer up all his wittle wies and people wearwy don’t wike his powicies!!! And just because all you zombies believe his ISN’T a Muslim doesn’t make is so either! Pull the cover back over your eyes

  48. mpidude, you really had me fooled! You say you went to Columbia…are you a professor?

    WOW! What better way to spark a discussion and display the differences in style than to portray yourself as the ULTIMATE Republican Jerk….You’ve played it to the hilt!

    After looking up the name you gave; http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/occidental.asp , it began to dawn on me that you’ve been playing a game with us. I’ve also been forwarded those petty emails sent out as propoganda by the greedy rich that have no basis in fact designed to capture small or ignorant minds to help them get the people voted into government who will help them multiply their $trillions & weaken the lower & middle class, thus insuring their supremacy and success.

    I also recall noticing the catty, dirt slinging quality in the Republican election campaigns vs. Obama’s campaign where he carefully stayed out of the “mud”. It was replayed in subsequent elections between Republicans and Democrats.

    Casting yourself as the ultimate Republican fat propoganda-fed Ignoramous to spur spirited debate demonstrating that we won’t climb into the mud with even the basest or most childish of instigating pigs is sheer brilliance! BRAVO!

  49. mpidude stands for moron prick imbecile dude. You think you are so clever, but the reality is that everyone can see right through you, as you make yourself clearly visible through your bigot, self centered , blind serving philosophy. Sorry I called you a bad name, but you are asking for it, as you keep speaking so ill of all the other brothers and sisters in this blog. But I will pray for you in the morning, that The Almighty straightens out your mind, for the sake of sanity. OK? God bless you mpidude.
