The “fiscal cliff” is what the people voted for in November, the fiscal cliff is what they are going to get. 
Oh, you thought you were just voting for higher taxes on the “Rich”?  Ha, Ha, Ha,Ha….

Go right ahead and laugh.  The true cost of El Commandante, Comrade, King Obama and his demo
regime will come to light.  The truth can be hidden only so long.

Regardless the subject, right wing nuts commenting here are a one trick pony: Insult the
majority and deny reality. Oh ya, and of course, whine, snivel, complain and pretend their
comments have any bearing on the issue being discussed.

Just a suggestion, but perhaps if you checked your long held beliefs against available facts (by
comparing news sources you now reject out of partisan stuborness) some reality could enter
your thinking.

Remember, Fox “news” won a court decision allowing it to LIE during “news” brodcasts…. see;
foxbghsuit.com.

Responsible American taxpayers know that we have a spending crisis not a revenue problem. In
returning a disingenuous Socialist charlatan to the thrown, enough hoards of deadbeats choose to
overlook his colossal character character flaws for a few short-term redistributed bread crumbs!

El Comandante, Comrade, King Obama is lying as always, The Dem-destructors are following him off
the cliff like lemmings, The fed gov’t is spending billions a DAY and some folks just insist on shooting
the messenger.  Amazing.  It is long past time to admit Obama was a huge mistake the first time, and
is an absolute (media driven) disaster the second time.  Y’all have a Merry Christmas, it may be the
last one where you might have a few bucks to spend.

Lest we not forget the 14 new Middle Class tax hikes approaching like a freight train thanks to our new
Utopian Health Care System. Seasons Greetings from the New ‘Death Panel’ to all our Seniors…They’ll
be watching to see if you’ve been naughty or nice!

I get a kick out of these right wing crazies’ comments. As long as they keep blaming Obama
and not recognizing that the citizens of this country REJECTED the publican policies, they will
never win another national election…Keep it up all you crazies.

One needs to look no further than Detroit to see the future awaiting the blissfully ignorant as their

Actually Detroit is just a point along the way to the destination of “unregulated capitalism” run
amuck. Look farther into the ongoing disaster that is SUPPLY SIDE economics, and see
republican utopia…..HAITI. The western world’s future where corporations do as they please
and the “invisable hand” of Ayn Rand fantasy reaches it’s only possible
conclusion…..corporate fudelism.

How can a political party even hope to get majority support when it endorses such anti people
policies in the land of government “of, by, and for the people?

MT56, you got that wrong. It was a lot of the non-citizens, unregistered democrates, of this country
that elected His Majesty. Since they do not pay taxes and are on the gov’t teat; what have they got
to lose ?

Waterman, can you cite any (even one) “voter fraud” instance in the recent election where
someone was even charged? Not talking about “election” fraud such as the right commited in
several states by concerted voter disenfranchizement schemes; many of which were struct
down in court…..actual in person voter fraud like you alluded to .

Well golly, the uber-liberal, worshipers of the most holy, sorta infallible, King and Comrade Obama
must be right.  Everything is becoming just super peachy seemingly overnight.  Very soon, we can have
the blessings of higher taxes!  Higher prices, higher unemployment!  How can anyone fault most holy
savior Chairman Obama?  He is “transforming America”!  Soon we will all be just overwhelmed with joy.

Do I detect a note of sarcasm in your blog moose?  Let’s face it.  Bush left a far worse economy than
even someone of Obama’s proven abilities is able to fix anytime soon.  I fully expect it will be near the
end of Obama’s third term in office before we see the results of his brilliant economic strategy.

The only voter fraud that I saw in the news other than unsubstantiated claims by Fix news,
were when the publicans got caught cooking the voter registration rolls. But I can see how the
publicans were a little nervous about voter fraud. They knew THEY were engaged in voter
fraud so they just assumed the other side was as well.

Haveing reread this thread (again) it still strikes me that the only comments here that have any
factual content are from left leaning posters. Surely there must be better informed people on
the right to present a rational viewpoint?

I guess the pain of loseing the election contributes to these content free insults serving as input
from the willfully ignorant, but our nation would be better served with both sides involved in
seeking advancement for the people.
