    The only reason there is a so called cliff, is because of the democrats, back in 2001 it was the dems that made this expiration date, however both sides and the president knew about the expiration date a long time ago, never let a crisis go to waste, and if you don’t have a crisis manufacturer one.

    Take it to them President Obama. Make Mitch Mcconnell wish he never uttered the words “one term president.”

      Seriously? Barry soetoro is too busy drone murdering little kids to be bothered with actual work.

      If the Obama zealots would get over themselves we could end this nonsense.
      But hey, why let reality cloud your fantasy?

      Obama is a bankster backed, corporate backed, hypocrite and liar. Far worse than W could ever have imagined.

      This is what two party politics gets you. Unimaginative drivel blindly supporting whomever is on “your” team….and constantly ignoring the fact that the two factions are one in the same and you’ve been played.

        What are you proposing, one party politics?

          Wow…no wonder….

          The founding fathers, some of them, warned against what they referred to as factions.
          For obvious reasons.

          Why do we need political factions/parties at all? The current “parties” are merely corporate puppets. They are bought and sold by special interests groups everyday.It is beyond an insult to the american people yet we sit back and play right along. Unbelievable.

          I don’t have any answers, never claimed I did, I’m just pointing out the obvious.
          What’s wrong with no party politics? And real popular elections? Not this fake electoral college farce.

          Time to think outside the box. Or revisit the federalist papers. This current system is not at all what was intended. Or was it?

    Let’s keep in mind that ‘the cliff’ is part of a debt ceiling deal that was agreed to by both parties in Congress and the President in 2011. They are all responsible for it.

    The party of “No” will wither away in the 2014 elections…the GOP/TP haven’t learned a thing!

      Thank goodness there are a few responsible Republicans down there who don’t want to continue this deficit spending trend!

    McConnell calling on Vice President Biden to help. Wonderful to see McConnell grovel.

    • Anonymous

      McConnell can’t play well with (most) classmates). He’s been able to get along with Biden all these years, makes one wonder how he got along with Obama in their senate days. Apparently not well, that’s probably when his vendetta started.

    Republicans want to end the gravy train, so of course the liberals and the media are going to blame them for everything. When some Republicans expressed a willingness to raise taxes to reduce the deficit, the Democrats wanted to use these new revenues for new spending initiatives instead. That is the primary reason for resistance from the “Tea Party” Republicans. Someone has to act responsibly, to stop the growing debt problem.

    The party of the gimmees and recipient class doesn’t care about the providers and workers. The party of “NO” are the marxists and socialists who will not cut a program as long as it benefits unions and their cronies. Raise taxes on the rich…what a joke. I guess Obama was going to use that to give the raises he enacted to all his buds in the house and senate. These thieves just want to rob taxpayers to give to the takers. When the sheep get over their lust for the rich and find out Obama and Biden will ask the middle class to then do their “patriotic duty” and pay more in taxes, the sheep who pay nothing will bleat YES…pay more. It is the mindless people of the country who allow themselves to be conned and really believe that big govt and a socialist govt is the answer. Now you sheep, hurry up and cash those welfare checks.

It wasn’t merely a gang of jobless hippies getting high—– far from it. The establishment was scared and their coverage demonstrates that. All lies and propaganda..turn off that tee vee! Six corporations own all your “news” shows…
