    Can’t wait for the budget negotiations to truly begin. Gonna get some chips, chocolate, etc. and munch away in fun. We either deal with it or we go off the cliff or off the curb or off the slope. Either way, Pres. Obama has the upper hand.

    Steve was wondering, in a blog post earlier today, how motivating ‘marginal tax increases’ would be to the exceptional OFA team that Jim Messina has assembled and is clearly preparing to mobilize for legislative and other battles.

    I think it was not at all an accident that President Obama began framing the larger issue in terms of ‘fairness’ – a new American economic patriotism, as it were. We are all in it together. We need to advance by providing opportunity to anyone who’s willing to work for it.

    So …

    Am outlining content of “Progressive Inclusiveness” and this underlying ethos of a patriotism based on economic fairness that the President has articulated will be studied closely.

    I have a dumb question – When President Bush was president – did people keep taking objections to his legislation to the supreme court? Business owners and the religious mob keep attacking health care with a vengeance – the former I understand, they don’t want to give 1 cent of their money to anyone other than themselves – the latter – don’t want people to have health care??? Somewhere along the line they lost what Christianity is all about.

    • November 26, 2012 at 11:38 pm

      The only legislation the media really went tough on Bush was the Privatization of SS. However, they were all about the tax cuts. Gee, I wonder why?
      Tax cuts is not being challenged, because no left wing think tank can find a lawful challenge, under the Constitution.

    A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly. The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say: “That’s not it” and put it down again. This went on for some time, until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested. The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army.

    The soldier picked it up, smiled and said: “That’s it.”

    After God had created Adam he noticed that he looked very lonely. He decided to help.

    He said “Adam, I’ve decided to make you a woman. She’ll love you, cook for you, be sweet to you, and understand you.”

    Adam said “Great! How much will she cost me?”

He selects part of Ploufe’s comments on Nov 14 and launches an emoprog attack. I would think by now we would know to grant this President a sliver of confidence in his intentions, abilities and strategies.

          • November 27, 2012 at 1:41 am

            It’s not Schultz it’s what Plouffe said about Medicare and Medicaid being on the table. The reality is that Obama DOES want a Grand Bargain. And that’s what makes some Dems nervous or mad that he’s going to negotiate with the GOP. But we all know he didn’t work his ass off running around these crazy ass swing states for the past year doing 3-4 rallies a day saying the same thing over and over and over to settle for a few slices of pie with whipped cream. He wants the whole pie and in his view that’s solving these issues not just for the short term but the long term. The long term means a Grand Bargain. So if people want him to just do layups on the backs of the GOP it ain’t gonna happen. He’s gonna play ball with them and win and win big. And even winning BIG I guarantee you that the same people will be saying he caved.

            Also relevant is that he is not doing this for his legacy but specifically FOR the disenfranchised. I mean he started out as a community organizer and that’s where his heart still is. For god’s sake, he gave up $$$$$ and power for years to help poor people. Somehow they think he’s going to screw them over now?? Secondly, he’s doing it so that the Dems are seen as bipartisan so that we can win in 2014. He’s not selfish when he could be. Damn community organizer still IS a community organizer; somehow they think he’s just a politician.

            Love bwd to death and I owe her for introducing me to Obama on the internet but don’t know why she doesn’t trust him every step of the way. We have zero reason not to trust him.

            The only thing I hoped he would do was end the Afghanistan war more quickly and hoped and hoped that once bin Laden was swimming with the fishes that he would announce that. I think it’s rather interesting that the MSM hasn’t been hounding him on that. Actually rather sad that Benghazi is more important to them then all the thousands of soldiers deaths in another country. But I digress…

            • November 27, 2012 at 9:08 am

              Excellent commentary ForUS50. I do believe that Plouffe’s words were taken out of context by MSNBC. I also think that PBO is ending the war responsibly – as he promised, and to me that’s better than some arbitrary quick timeline. The MSM is ALWAYS on the GOP’s side where war is concerned and Romney campaigned on prolonging the war, so the MSM can’t hypocritically hound PBO on his current timeline.

    The priest drives the green within 5 yards of the hole.

    Jesus slices the ball and it goes into the water hazard. He quickly runs across the water and hits his second onto the green 2 inches from the hole.

    The old man tees off with a short worm burner that trickles into the hazard. Soon after a fish eats the ball and swims across the pond with it in its mouth. Just then an eagle swoops down and snatches the fish with the golf ball and flies off. The eagle loses its grip and drops the fish on the green. The fish then spits out the ball and it rolls into the hole for a hole in one.

    Jesus turns to the old man and replies, “Play fair dad!”

    Hey squarepeg, I’m not fighting with BWD on twitter. I don’t have the time nor the appetite for that kind of crap. You should look at the backstory/back-tweets first. BWD was freaking out about the video which Bob posted upthread and saying David Plouffe had basically played his hand and given in to the GOP regarding the fiscal cliff. Ed Schultz played a non-contextual clip of the discussion Plouffe had with Schmidt about the fiscal cliff and began freaking out saying Pres. Obama was giving up, that he was throwing progressives under the bus, that he was abandoning progressives who got him a second term, that he was going to mercilessly cut Medicare and Medicaid, that he was going to cave to the GOP like he did before. Yadi yada yah. BWD agrees with him and I disagree with BWD. I’m not for freaking out especially when no real deal/negotiations have occurred regarding the fiscal cliff. BWD thinks Pres. Obama’s first term has been dictated by the GOP and if we don’t kill them now, they’ll do the same thing again. I disagree and I pointed out that one just has to look at Pres. Obama’s legislative accomplishments in the first term to know that he came out the winner and the GOP came out losers. One only has to look at 2010 to see how Pres. Obama successfully manipulated the GOP. One can also look at 2011 to see how Boehner didn’t get all he wanted in the debt ceiling negotiations. Instead, Pres. Obama got another round of stimulus and Boehner and congress voted on sequestration cuts so everyone has skin in the game.

    My premise is that we should stop listening to talking heads on cable TV who don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes and then freakout just because they tell us to. Have we learned nothing from 2010 and the destruction they caused; particularly, Ed Schultz?

    Obama to Discuss Fiscal Cliff in Montco on Friday
    President Barack Obama plans to make a public case this week for his strategy for dealing with the looming fiscal cliff, traveling to the Philadelphia suburbs Friday

    President Barack Obama plans to make a public case this week for his strategy for dealing with the looming fiscal cliff, traveling to the Philadelphia suburbs Friday as he pressures Republicans to allow tax increases on the wealthy while extending tax cuts for families earning $250,000 or less.

    Obama’s visit to a small business in Hatfield, Pa., that makes parts for a construction toy company will cap a week of public outreach as the White House and congressional leaders negotiate a way to avoid tax increases and deep spending cuts scheduled to being taking effect Jan. 1.

    At the White House, the president will meet with small business owners on Tuesday and middle-class Americans on Wednesday.

    Cyber Monday sales were up 20 percent this year from 2011, with retailers saying online sales brought in a record $1.5 billion, according to Internet analytical firm comScore. Cyber Monday, the busiest Web shopping day of the year, began early this year, with Walmart beginning its online deals on Saturday. Early-bird shoppers certainly wanted to get the worm: Thanksgiving shopping increased 32 percent this year, and on Black Friday, the holiest shopping day of the year, e-commerce shopping topped $1 billion for the first time ever, up about 26 percent.

    Good morning, Chips and TODville.

    Some info on 2nd term transition from Laura Rozen.

    In the certain to go camp:

    Assistant Secretary of State for Asia and Pacific Affairs Kurt Campbell is leaving, official told the Back Channel, to chair the board of the Center for New American Security (CNAS), the think tank he co-founded with Michele Flournoy, and do Asia consulting. (His spouse Lael Brainard, Under Secretary of Treasury for International Affairs, may leave the administration too, an official said. White House chief of staff Jack Lew is expected to succeed Tim Geithner as Treasury Secretary.)

    NSC Middle East senior advisor Steve Simon is due to leave shortly to become head of a think tank, officials told the Back Channel.

    AfPak envoy Marc Grossman will leave, officials said. It is unclear who will succeed him.

    In the likely to move camp:

    Deputy Secretary of State William Burns may be nominated to succeed Rice as US ambassador to the UN, officials said.

    Deputy Secretary of State Tom Nides is being mulled for a White House job, possibly White House chief of staff, which can put his knowledge of budgets to work, as well as his relationship with Congress and Wall Street.

    NSC economics senior advisor Michael Froman is likely to move, possibly to become US Trade Rep.

    Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Poneman is also likely to move, possibly for a White House/NSC job, or US Trade Rep.

    Vice President Bidenโ€™s national security advisor Antony Blinken is likely to get a promotion, perhaps to deputy secretary of state.

    In the may stay in place:

    White House WMD czar Gary Samoreโ€”playing a key role on Iranโ€”may stay on for now. While State Department arms control envoy Robert Einhorn is likely to leave, for a chair he has waiting for him at a Washington think tank, officials said.

    National Security Advisor Tom Donilon may stay in place in that role, for now.

    Sources thought that Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter and former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy would be top contenders to succeed Leon Panetta as Defense Secretary when he decides to leave, which is not expected to be immediately.

    Gotta love Warren Buffett. He was on the Today Show this morning and Lauer was whining about how Wall Street and hedge fund guys don’t want to invest in the economy and create more jobs due to uncertainty. Lauer neglected to mention that the Wall Street guys he was talking about were republicans who had financially backed Romney in the 2012 election so of course they’re going to be all doom and gloom. Buffett pointed out to him that over the Thanksgiving weekend we’ve seen consumers come out in force, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday were huge successes for retailers, and in addition to that, the housing market is rebounding.

    Buffett also pointed out to him that people are investing in the American economy and used himself as an example. He told Lauer that he invested more in 2012 than he did in 2011 and 2011 was already a barn burner of a year for the investments Berkshire Hathaway (his company) made. Lauer then began whining about how the GOP says raising taxes will destroy the American economy and Buffett said it wouldn’t. Lauer wouldn’t give it a rest and kept whining “but the right says….” and Buffett pretty much told him it will not harm the economy. No wealthy person will stop investing if their taxes are raised. That wealthy people like himself have benefitted so much from this country and especially since the economy began recovering from the recession and it’s time they do their part. He was very firm in that regard. It was quite fun to watch him silence Lauer’s nonsense.

    Does she have a hope? http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/27/tzipi-livni-return-israeli-politics

    The former Israeli foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, has announced her return to politics, telling supporters she is forming a new party to run in January parliamentary elections on a platform promising an aggressive push for peace with the Palestinians.

    Livni, who served as Israel’s foreign minister and chief peace negotiator from 2006 to 2009, bitterly attacked the prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, as she announced the formation of her new party, called the Movement.

    “I came to fight for peace โ€ฆ and I won’t allow anyone to turn peace into a bad word,” she said.

    Also, the President is going to do the very best he can with a spoiled rotten Congress, some Democrats included.
    He is not going to get everything we want, despite his mandate.
    I say, let’s give him some room to negotiate, and not be drummed up by the Ideological Left wing media.
    That is all!

    Thought this was an interesting post-game analysis by Axe. Some interesting tidbits. like when he came back to the WH to help with Obama’s humorous speech at WHCD, suggested a joke that Tim Pawlenty’s middle name is Bin Laden —-which I thought was funny—-Barack Hussein—get it? ๐Ÿ™‚ ——but Obama gave an excuse not to use it—-said that subject was stale—-little did Axe know that Obama had given the go ahead to the bin Laden raid that day.

    Just to recap and pander to our blog goddess….


    I’m sick of lying Republicans, worthless Economists and the Tea Party pawns. But to me, none of them are as egregious as the Democrats and Independents who initially supported President Obama and have now joined the chorus of those who constantly criticize and declare their disappointment.

    On any given day, one can read an assortment of critiques of President Obama about everything from Afghanistan to Zawahiri. The Internet is overrun with Monday morning Presidents. I for one have had enough. Iโ€™d almost reached the point where I dreaded reading the so-called news accounts, which have little to do with actual events, but are more often than not opinions parading as facts. And the comments, forget about it…I just donโ€™t have time for the crazy.

    Then I found this site called the Obama diary. What a treat! Itโ€™s a wonderfully uplifting experience! The writings, the comments, the passion, wit and wisdom are all Pro-Obama. Thank you Geezus! I donโ€™t know why I was deprived of such wonder, then again, Iโ€™m always a day late and a dollar short. Don’t get me wrong, there are many excellent sites, but more often than not, they carry a variety of themes; that includes my own. But the Obama diary is pure positive Obama goodness.

    Iโ€™m addicted; so hooked, I canโ€™t go a few hours without visiting. It is my mood-altering drug: that boost I get in the morning not unlike the jolt I get from my first cup of coffee. I wonโ€™t be posting during the Convention, but I wanted to share this with you. So when the Obama bashing gets to be too much, I suggest you visit too.

    the Obama diary will keep you Fired Up and Ready to Go!

    Thank you, Pragmatic Pundit ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you’re here!

      I remember this, Df, a definite ‘oldie but goodie’. I hope he still drops in and still feels the same way about us.

    Coyotes visit Wrigley Field—-disappointed there was no game ๐Ÿ™‚
    They’re all over the place in Illinois now—–often spot one strolling thru my back yard—–looks somewhat like a scraggly German Shepherd—–and we often hear them howling at the moon with their friends and family at night—–or whatever it is coyotes do at midnight.
    Ct. daughter says they have bears strolling everywhere around her area now—–in her office parking lot and can’t use a fave rec. area currently because a mom and 2 babes have set up housekeeping there.

    Some wisdom from Roger Simon——and the idiocy of Repub voter suppression efforts

    What an ass. But we knew that.

    Boehner claims he has โ€œleverageโ€ because of debt ceiling: John Boehner recently said Obamacare must be part of the debt talks. Now Politico reports on a remarkable exchange between Obama and Boehner, in which the Speaker told Obama that the coming debt ceiling fight constitutes โ€œmy leverage.โ€ Boehner responded to Obamaโ€™s demand that he agree to raise it by saying: โ€œThere is a price for everything.โ€

    Of course, in this case, the thing that has a โ€œpriceโ€ includes averting something that would be dangerous for the whole country โ€” default. This is the clearest sign yet that weโ€™re headed for another debt ceiling showdown, and you can bet that this time, Congressional Democrats will insist that no concessions be made to House Republicans.
