President Obama, in true political fashion, will allow the US to go over this highly-touted fiscal cliff, and then easily blame the Republicans for it happening in the first place. How typical and predictable. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Liberal Politics Rule #1: Never take responsibility. It appears that Mr. Obama has done his homework when it comes to Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. I am certainly no fan of the GOP, but even so, I must speak out.
The Associated Press has put out this little tidbit:
It may be just a bluff or a bargaining ploy, but the White House is signaling that President Barack Obama is willing to let the country go over the “fiscal cliff,” a hard-line negotiating strategy aimed at winning concessions from Republicans on taxes.
If Washington really does fail to avert the looming series of tax hikes and spending cuts, the White House will portray Republicans as the culprits for insisting on protecting tax cuts for the wealthy, an effort the administration is laying the groundwork for now.
“This is a choice of the Republican Party,” said Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director. “If they are willing to do higher rates on the wealthy, there’s a lot we can talk about. And if they are not, then they’ll push us over the cliff.”
Please take not that this centers upon one thing: raising taxes on the wealthy. This is The New America, apparently, wherein the wealthy and successful of our country are vilified and targeted by a Socialist Regime, masquerading as The White House and the Democrat Party. This will be discussed at a later date here on Perigon Media.
Dean Chambers, over at The Examiner and a contributor here on Perigon Media, has this to say: He believes the GOP should let President Obama own this fiscal cliff free fall.
If Republicans were smart they would just let President Obama own the fiscal cliff. Doing that would be easy. They would simply just withdraw from all negotiations and talks about the “fiscal cliff” and capitulating to some compromise with the president which really means raising taxes, which he insists the election gave him a mandate for doing, and he refuses to work out a deal on the fiscal cliff without raising taxes. So the Republicans should let him do it without any effort from the Republican leadership. They can challenge the Democrats to pass their tax increase and recession-causing plain by a party line vote in Harry Reid’s Senate and to gather enough RINO moderates in the House to get 218 votes there to pass it. Then President Obama can sign the deal into law, and the Democrats will own it, entirely.
I wholeheartedly applaud Mr. Chambers’ common-sense approach and realistic outlook. But the harsh truth is that the State-Run New Media Guild will not suffer to see Mr. Obama face any exposure or criticisms. In simpler terms, only people who are in the know can see what’s really happening, while the rest of America is being bamboozled. But I digress.
Should we or shouldn’t we allow President Obama to take us over this fiscal cliff? Hmm. My house is in order, so I am not worried about how he continues to destroy the economy, although it has forced me to tighten my belt a bit. The thing is, many Americans who have no fiscal acumen or discipline will feel the effects of President Obama’s desire to bankrupt the Nation, and it will be painful. It might just what’s needed, however, to shake people out of their sleep-walking, and realize that our Emperor has no clothes.
Go ahead and steer us off this fiscal cliff, Mr. Obama, and then blame the Republicans. Go ahead. I think you will soon see that Americans are not half as stupid as you need them to be. When America realizes that you are not a victim but a predator, things in America will get as ugly as your past, and not even the State-Run New Media Guild will be able to protect you.
