    Cynical Me

    Cynical Me

    If I were a completely cynical political type, I’d say to hell with the merits of the “tax deal,” because we just found the best reason to vote No. 

    As reported by The Hill (h/t HotAir), Obama tells lawmakers not passing tax deal could end presidency, Dem says:

    In urging lawmakers to vote for his tax deal, President Obama is using one of his go-to lines from the healthcare debate, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

    Obama is telling members of Congress that failure to pass the tax-cut legislation could result in the end of his presidency, Rep. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) said.

    “The White House is putting on tremendous pressure, making phone calls, the president is making phone calls saying this is the end of his presidency if he doesn’t get this bad deal,” he told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer.

    The White House is denying that Obama made such statements.  Who you gonna believe?

    Would it be the end of the Obama presidency if the tax deal didn’t pass?  Is that reason enough to scuttle the deal?  Am I asking questions to which I already know the answer?  Am I using a series of questions in this post to avoid having to take a position myself on the issue?  Are you still reading?

    Make the Blamer-In-Chief prove that it will be the end of his 'Excellency"….

    Joe's been biden his time, "C."

    Don't you just want to shout at the those Congresspeoples, "For the love of Pete, don't just stand there, do NOTHING!"?

    So now that the budget bill has been canned, Obama will now be forced to sign bill after Republican sponsored bill because at this point IF President Feckless were to threaten a veto he would risk being humilated. Come on 2011-HR1!

    If Obama and Reid were to play brinksmanship with the budget, it would be THEIR constituents, the rent seekers and the entitlement class who would suffer NOT the middle class or the small business. A Republican controlled Congress would gladly see any reduction with a government shut down in spending and so would the country given the spendthrift reputation earned by the Dems.

    HR1 needs to as a first step reign in the budget first to 2008 spending levels, but more importantly let ALL the Rentseeking subisidies expire like Ethanol. Enough poor people around the world have suffered for the greed of the green profiteers. Sugar and corn (fungible commodities) prices are at all time highs, the world's poor need relief.
