    You mean arrogance against those whose ONLY stated goal was to limit him to one term?

    But of course such a goal would not be arrogance on the part of those going for it, now would it?

    Also, then would it not be arrogance to complain against the vote not going your way in the election?

    Nice of you to re-define the word arrogance!!

    You are right…I should have said ahhhhh the ignorance, because everyone seems to forget that he has been running trillion dollar deficits and won’t stop. My arrogance comes from having family members who immigrated from a communist country that failed trying what he is doing…I’m in the know.

    Unless Boehner suddenly decides to grow a pair, the only way to get any compromise from the Republicans is to go over the cliff.

    The only way to reduce the deficit is to increase tax revenues from the people who have done really well in the last 4 years. The people who benefit from stock market windfalls: CEOs, bankers, financiers. The Tea Party doesn’t want to compromise and will challenge any Republican who votes for a real compromise. The Big Money people who finance the Tea Party will have to choose between a modest increase in their taxes or possible fiscal ruin.

    You are HILARIOUS. Obama squandered his first two years trying to work with the Republican congressional delegation, which gave him the back of their hands time after time. He wasn’t the one who wouldn’t work with the opposition.

    CONGRESS made the fiscal cliff because THEY refused to compromise. The president’s position has always been clear and decisive. For once in a rare while, legislators will have to take responsibility for their own mess.

    Lets tax Washington – That’s where the big bucks are going. When they feel the bite we might return to financial sanity!

    Many of the trillions of dollars of which people complain came from two wars where the money was just paid without legislation. Too many people getting that money were unsupervised and unregulated contractors who only made matters worse in both countries. I personally don’t care about the deficit. The USA is too big to fail financially. We can fail, but as long as we can grow our own food, produce our own power sources, and keep our people from becoming dangerously extreme, we can survive anything and come out stronger than before.
    This “fiscal cliff” is an act of stupidity on part of the legislature who want to punish voters for not voting ‘their way’. Whether it was putting Obama in the white house again, or electing too many republicans to the HoR, this does not have to happen and is a dangerously childish act on the part of people who are supposed to be protecting Americans.
    We need to elect better people.

    Are there really that many who “have done really well in the last 4 years”? The only people that have prospered under Obama HAVE been the rich and the poor and middle class have lost. I personally don’t think there is enough rich capital to lift us out, he will probably do what Clinton did and increase taxes on EVERYBODY that works.

    The fiscal cliff is more of a slope, according to various pundits on MSNBC shows yesterday.

    The incomes of most of the top 1% are strongly tied to the stock market, which has recovered nicely in the last 4 years. Incomes for the top 10% are a little better than they were in 2009, but the lower 40% have been hardest hit.

    We can’t fix the deficit simply by taxing the rich, but it’s part of any real solution.

    Yes, in 2011, Boehner walked out on a deal after the Tea Party caucus threatened to rebel against his leadership. I don’t think there is any deal that will satisfy them, so Boehner will have to either risk losing his position as Speaker, or we go over the cliff.

    Letting the Bush tax cuts for the top earners expire, will add about $80 billion a year to revenues. Obviously, there is a lot more that needs to be addressed.

    That’s because you aren’t looking:


    In a nutshell, Obama wants to reduce the deficit by equal amounts of spending reduction and tax increases.
