Jack says … let the auto spending cuts and tax hikes kick in.
House Republicans said on Thursday that Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner presented the House speaker, John A. Boehner, a detailed proposal to avert the year-end fiscal crisis with $1.6 trillion in tax increases over 10 years, an immediate new round of stimulus spending, home mortgage refinancing and a permanent end to Congressional control over statutory borrowing limits.
The proposal, loaded with Democratic priorities and short on detailed spending cuts, was likely to meet strong Republican resistance. In exchange for locking in the $1.6 trillion in added revenues, President Obama embraced $400 billion in savings from Medicare and other entitlements, to be worked out next year, with no guarantees.
Granted if we go over the fiscal cliff it will be painful for all americans. Upside it will at least address the fiscal problems and not make things worse in the long run.
Everyone says the republicans will be blamed. Well guess what? No matter what happens if it’s not good the republicans will be blamed. So let’s get blamed for something we did.
Warren Buffet says TAX ME and all others that make alot of money! Thing is all he has to do is cut a check to IRS which he has not done. What he has done is continue to play the tax code for all it’s worth and retained every penny he can to maximize his wealth.
He leads exactly as Obama leads. Not by example for sure.
All told, the government has paid out at least $180,000 for official portraits since last year, according to a review by The Washington Times of spending records at federal agencies and military offices across government.
Half of American tax payers owe no federal income tax, and most of those filers actually net tax benefits from federal income taxes, according to analysis from the Joint Committee on Taxation in a letter to the Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee.
This is what happens when you refuse to compromise. Now the media will turn this into the Big Bad Hostess Co. killing jobs. Fact is 18,000+ more on the unemployment dole. And really how many companies are out their recruiting bakers?
Jack made all that stuff up in the orginal post … but you already knew that. He was right on the money about sending someone out to lie about Benghazi terrorist attack. Now Obama all but admitted this and says …
“When they go after the U.N. ambassador, apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me,” Obama said today.
He’s feeling his invincibilty. He’s thinking he’s an “untouchable.”
When asked point blank specific questions about Benghazigate Obama said … I ain’t fckin sayin! He could have just said …
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
He is supposed to be a constutional lawyer! But he chose to say …
KYLE CLARK: Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack? And is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we’ll all find out after the election?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, we’re going to bring those folks to justice. So, we’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again but we’re also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.
KYLE CLARK: Were they denied requests for help during the attack?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.
Jack with little resources know more about Benghazigate than Obama’s White House. Of course Jack has been paying attention. Obama’s WH has only been trying to get reelected. CIA is talking now. Military is talking now. WH … mums the word.
Based on documents released by the committee, on the day of the attack the Pentagon dispatched a drone with a video camera so everyone in Washington could see what was happening in real time. The drone documented no crowds protesting any video. But around 4 p.m. Washington received an email from the Benghazi mission saying it was under a military-style attack. The White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and the CIA were able to watch the live video feed. An email sent later that day reported “Ansar al-Sharia claims responsibility for Benghazi attack.”
Not only did the White House do nothing, there are now reports that a counterterrorism team ready to launch a rescue mission was ordered to stand down.
These behaviors go far beyond “spin.” They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation’s economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie “Dr. Strangelove,” would be disastrous.
Today, the White House press secretary let it slip during a press gaggle aboard Air Force One that President Obama’s inaction on the Benghazi situation now extends to inaction on the supposed investigation taking place. The administration has still not made clear what exactly is being investigated, or the extent of the investigation. And President Obama doesn’t much care. Said Carney:
“He has not participated in the investigation. He is anticipating results that show us exactly what happened and who is responsible and what lessons we can learn from it and ensure it never happens again. He expects the investigation to be rigorous.”
Update:It has been comfirmed without a shadow of a doubt. It will even hold up in court if it comes to that. Obama lied about the whole thing to protect his election chances. Now he’s all offended when someone calls him out in second debate. What a joke of a leader! What a little man. Sarah Palin was correct to say when Obama recieved that 3:AM call … he started shuckin and jivin.
Jack says … He should be tarred and feathered. Nixon was run out of office for less and rightly so. Obama should be done the same … run out of office if he’s reelcted. If not relected he should still answer to the american public. Hopefully someone in the adminstration will speak up and tell the truth. Well WE know the truth now they just need to admit it.
Jack looked on ABC, NBC, CBS for this story … NUTTIN.
Topping the network newscasts: CBS: 24th death in meningitis outbreak; ABC: Hurricane Sandy threat; NBC: Obama interview.

If the network “NEWS” stations aren’t going to carry stories … the american public should stop watching them. They might care about a story then … naaaa. Walter Cronkite is rolling over in his grave.
This post is prefaced that this is done with the best intelligence Jack has at this time.
Carney: Mr President we have a situation. We need to have a conference call to see how best to deal with this situation.
Obama: What happened?
Carney: Our ambassador and 3 others have been killed in terrorist attack in Libya. The embassy has been sacked and burned.
Obama: You woke me for THIS! What am I paying YOU for? Ok get Hillary/Bill, Valerie, Eric H., Axelrod and rest of gang on a call then call me back.
Carney: Mr President … we’re all here.
Obama: How bad does this look for my reelection?
Valerie, Hillary, Axelrod: 9-11 … BAD.
Obama: Where’s Bill? He’s best spin dr on the planet!
Hillary: He told me he was going out for a donut but you know Bill he’s probably just looking for a donut hole.
Valerie: Hey we can blaime it on that movie.
Obama: Eric … if we lie what’s the down side.
Eric: None. We lie all the time and the only people that know we lie and wouldn’t vote for you anyway … somewhere around 47%. And they’ll never know we lied if they don’t watch Fox News. So I don’t see any down side. We need to use good verbage though. You know … to the best of my knowledge/ recollection etc or in this case “the best intelligence we have at this time.”
Obama: Good Eric good. Hillary you need to get right on this.
Hillary: No thanks. I won’t give the Repubs this to toss in my face come 2016.
Obama: Right … who do we have that we can toss under bus if this goes sour?
Axelrod: Susan Rice/UN ambassador will fit that bill.
Obama: Great … get her on it and tell her to sell it if she likes her job! You people need to never forget, if you like YOUR job you better protect MINE! Now I’m going to bed. I’ve got a big day in Vegas tommorrow.
Exhausted and, according to a friend, fighting to save his marriage, U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. announced Monday he’s been on a previously-undisclosed medical leave of absence for the past two weeks.
Just last week, a fund-raiser in the middle of the Jackson saga — Raghuveer Nayak — was arrested by federal authorities in an unrelated alleged fraud scheme.
Yep that will do it. Between blondes that’s not your wife and very close associates being arrested for fraud with your name being tossed into the mix … will exhaust you. Jesse Jackson Jr. should turn to his dad for advice in these matters. Jesse Jackson Sr. has alot of experience in these very exhausting matters. But as Kathy Shaidle says … exhaustion is not a medical problem.
One of my goals in choosing to participate in mass media is to help viewers and listeners wade through the nonsense that is fed to them and help them become more sophisticated consumers of media. As a physician one of the most transparent and troubling lies that I see spun from publicists and then distributed as legitimate news is when a young public figure becomes ill. What we hear from the spin doctors is that the young client is suffering from “exhaustion” and/or “dehydration.”
Really … come on … that’s like laying on the rocks playing with your dog and calling that a job! It’s hard work but not a job.
Coco’s dog does look alot like Sr. Don’t you think?
Jack is pretty sure what Sr’s advice will be … deny, deny, deny and never forget to play your race card.
Jack works for a publically traded electric utility. The company he works for owns four nuke plants in the Northeast that are up and running (never lost generation). The company he works has sent 100’s of tool workers to help with restoration. He knows how sensitive union/non union issues can be. He has NEVER seen this happen in an emergency like the Northeast is having at this time.
This is NOT cutting the “RED TAPE” Obama eluded to.
There is “no excuse for inaction,” Obama said after a brief unscheduled visit to Red Cross headquarters in Washington. “I want you to cut through red tape; I want you to cut through the bureaucracy. There is no excuse for inaction at this point.”
Oh and don’t get Jack started on that Red Cross shit!
The Labor Department said Monday that it has yet to make a decision on whether to delay Friday’s closely-watched October employment report due to the effects from Hurricane Sandy.
Bloomberg NewsFederal government offices in Washington are closed Monday and may be shut again Tuesday due to the storm. It isn’t clear if the closure would cause a delay in processing the data.
“We will assess the situation when the weather emergency is over and notify the press and public of any changes at that time,” said Gary Steinberg, spokesman for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the data arm of the department.
The Labor Department is also scheduled to release its third quarter employment cost index Wednesday, and the third quarter productivity and weekly jobless claims reports Thursday.
The most closely watched is Friday’s jobs report, which will give the final measure the unemployment ahead of next week’s presidential election.
In debate #2 Jack thought it was going pretty good. Granted he thinks Romney got the better of the debate. But back to the third party in this debate. Candy Crowley had to toss Obama a bone (actually several bones) . She just couldn’t help herself. It was the question about Benghazi, Libya terror attack.
Obama lied again. Candy backed up his lie. This will keep the Benghazi, Libya terror attack in the news at least a few more days front and center which is a good thing for Romney.
Now she admits she may have spoken out of her largesse ass. Jack forgives her now that she corrected herself. Now she needs to correct herself to the 60 million she lied to on national television.
See how this works. If you’re wrong and then correct the wrong you get forgiven. Obama STILL hasn’t corrected his wrong on Benghazi, Libya terror attack and has the gall to say this …
“The suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our U.N. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s not what we do.”
When that is exactly what he did and is still doing about Benghazi, Libya terror attack. Come clean Mr I’m offended for calling me out. The liberals will forgive you … even Candy. Jack can’t make any promises on his forgiveness and get ready to get really offended in the 3rd debate. Benghazi, Libya terror attack will be main topic.
If Obama … Mr Offended … would have come clean day one this be would old news. Jacks advice for Mr Offended if you are going to bluff (read the transcipt LOL) make sure your opponent is going to fold and not read the transcript.
In 2008 Obama received 70% or so of the female vote. Well the polls say different in 2012. Why? Jack thinks he has an idea. Women will usually forgive you if you stand up and be a man about your failures. If you stand up and say I was wrong and I will do better in the future women will give you the benefit of the doubt. If you cry like a baby and blame everything under the sun about your failures women will see you as a petty little boy that hasn’t grown up. Women don’t want a petty, whiney, little boy. Women want a man even if you have flaws.
Another thing is women have this built in radar about when a man is lying to them. They have watched Obama lie over and over again about petty things. Things women would have forgiven him for. He couldn’t do that. Obama had to lie and blame something or someone on HIS failures. Women hate that in a man more than anything. Here’s an example …
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama said on Thursday that “we got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system.”
According to the Congressional Budget Office, however, the government will lose about $24 billion on the bailout.
Hell tell one lie … may as well tell another in same outing!
CBO said that the cost of TARP “stems largely from assistance to American International Group (AIG), aid to the automotive industry, and grant programs aimed at avoiding home mortgage foreclosures,” noting that the losses will be so large they will eclipse the financial gains the government will realize from bailing out other large financial institutions.
In fact, CBO reported that as of now $65 billion in TARP funds remain outstanding.
This is what happens when he has to defend his failures … he flat out lies.
The failures are bad but forgivable.
The lies are unforgivable and fatal.
He learned that Obama and Biden has alot “buffers” from the state department or any other department under their direct control that could make them look bad. Jack seems to remember that Obama said the buck stops with him … except when it doesn’t.
Biden said that “we” were unaware of security concerns in Libya. On Friday, White House officials clarified Friday that the vice president was speaking for himself and President Obama. State Department officials, they said, had not passed on requests for more security.
Funny that is exactly how organized crime works … yea buffers for denial.
PBS is now home to numerous lucrative franchises — with “Sesame Street” the most successful, having earned $211 million in merchandising sales from 2003 to 2006.
Indeed, Sesame Workshop’s total assets at the end of last year stood at more than $411 million — and its CEO is paid nearly $1 million a year.
Which certainly makes Big Bird a 1-percenter, earning far more than Mitt Romney — and paying far less in taxes, to boot.
Imagine that … BigBird is not paying his “fair share” of taxes. You better get right on that Obama!
Plus the liberals are going nuts over the BigBird death threat.
CNN host Soledad O’Brien says that her son was “devastated” after Wednesday night’s presidential debate because he believed that GOP hopeful Mitt Romney wanted to kill Sesame Street character Big Bird.
Jack is thinking that if Soledads son is still watching BigBird … the debates may be a little over his head. Jack is positive the debates are over his mothers head.
… when Mrs Jack switched the channel and said … I’m not going to listen to anymore of those republican lies!
Well this, the first debate, was on the economy. Really all Mitt had to do was keep to Obamas record, which he did. Mitt did give more though about what he would do and that sealed the deal.
Now on to foreign policy debate. If you thought the 1st debate was bad the foreign policy debate should be brutal. Have you ever walked into a room, turned on the light and the roaches ran … this is what these debates will resemble.
Great job Team Mitt … keep turning those lights on and watch them run.
