The United States is in a financial crisis and the budget deal struck in 2010 is ready to rear its ugly head as the Bush era tax cuts expire and automatic budget cuts go into effect. While I think that it would be better to allow it to take place rather than give in to higher taxes and no cuts my opinion does not really count much in the process.
But, the opinion of Obama should count and he should be involved in the process. One would think he would seek out the council of people who actually know economics, like say Paul Ryan. Ryan has a degree in economics and is a good numbers person. Obama has not sought Ryan’s opinion. In fact, he has demonized Ryan and his plans.
So in between the golf games and the endless campaigning (hey Barry, you allegedly won so get to work) Obama has decided to avail himself to the process. If a deal is to be done (and I think he would be happy going over the so called fiscal cliff and blaming Republicans) then Obama wants it done soon because he and his family are going on a taxpayer funded 4 MILLION dollar vacation at the end of the year.
Obama has decided to get the opinions of some real budgetary heavy weights from MSNBC. Yes, Barack Obama had Al Sharpton, Rachael Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell in the West Wing to discuss tax rates.
What do any of these mouthpieces of the Democrat Party know about any of this? What kind of objective opinion can they provide given that they are shills for Obama and have all espoused raising taxes on the people who pay most of the federal income taxes to begin with.
I find it particularly strange that Sharpton is involved given that he has not paid his fair share. Big Al owes 3.7 MILLION dollars in taxes and penalties because he has not paid his fair share. He is all about screaming for others to pay but, like any liberal, he does not want to pay what he owes. Hell, Sharpton is more qualified to be Treasury Secretary than to give advice on tax rates (see Tax Cheat Tim Geithner).
Barack Obama does not have a clue. He should be working with his Democrats to provide meaningful discussion on the process. He should be looking for ways to cut spending while leaving tax rates alone unless he is in favor of LOWERING them. Lower rates will stimulate growth and spending and result in more revenue to the Treasury. If they don’t spend the additional money like they always do then we can use it to pay the bills and begin to retire the debt.
These are all items that can be discussed but in order to have any meaningful discussion the talks have to be with people who a) know what they are talking about and b) are actual involvement or influence in the process.
The Democrat operatives at MSNBC have no influence in the process and they certainly do not know what they are talking about.
The fact that Obama would insult Ryan and ignore his opinion and instead seek out O’Donnell, Sharpton and Maddow is just another demonstration of why Obama is the least qualified person to run this country (or anything for that matter). He is out of his league.
But at least by hanging with these hacks he can at least appear to be the brightest in the room…
Never surrender, never submit.

King Putt’s vice President and court jester Joe Biden recently took a swipe at GOP VP candidate Paul Ryan by invoking the wise words of his late father. Biden always tells people what the wise words of his father were as if Joe actually lives by them (or as if his father actually said them). Here is what Jester Joe had to say:
“…But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tell you, say, ‘Look, let me tell you what’s important to me, what I value.’ My dad would go, ‘No, no. Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value.’” Weekly Standard
I am sure that Biden’s father was talking about people and their personal budgets but Joe made it sound as if ole daddy B was discussing any budget and the assumption is that Ryan has budget ideas that show values contrary to American values. Since Jester Joe decided to apply his pappy’s words to the federal budget I have to wonder if Joe is aware that the Democrat controlled Senate, which Joe is the president of, has not passed a budget in over three years.
If Joe wants us to believe that his daddy said he could tell what someone valued by looking at the budget what do you suppose daddy B would be able to tell about a group of people who passed NO budget?
I also wonder if his daddy would be proud of the fact that Joe is the president of the Senate (OK, he only has one real function there) and that he did not bother to push the Democrats to pass a budget. I would say that it shows the Democrats do not value using a budget or living within its means. I would say that it shows that Democrats value obstruction and cheating taxpayers out of money by not putting in place a mechanism to allocate that money appropriately. I know that it matters little because they do not have to balance anything and they spend as they want regardless of a budget BUT Joe said we could tell a lot about what people value by their budget.
If we accept this as true then we see a lot of things the Democrat controlled Senate values that are contrary to American principles.
To take it a step further, Jester Joe and his wife have donated about 1% of their income to charity while Mitt Romney and his wife have donated about 16% of their income to charity. It would appear as if Joe does not value charity.
That is, of course, unless he is being charitable with someone else’s money. Joe loves spending on social programs to help the folks out but only so long as he is spending money that is not his own.
He really does not value helping others when it comes to his own money
Liberals love to spend everyone else’s money and Joe is no exception to the rule.
I also wonder what his daddy would have said about plagiarism but that is something to save for another day.
Remember this folks when you hear the Democrats call Romney a greedy rich guy…
Never surrender, never submit.

The news began to leak out last last evening and early this morning it was confirmed that Mitt Romney had selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate in the upcoming save America election. Ryan has some baggage with regard to his conservative credentials but he is fairly solid and brings a lot to the table. Despite a few issues he will bring a lot of conservatives back into the tent.
Ryan and Obama are not quite pals and it is probably still fresh in Obama’s mind that Ryan eviscerated him during the discussion over Obamacare.
Ryan has worked up a budget and it contains some tough cuts to popular programs but those cuts are needed. Liberals portray it as an end to Medicare and Social Security but that is a stretch. In fact, coming from Democrats you know it is a lie.
I think Ryan will do a fine job. He has a sound business mind and a great grasp of economics not to mention he has far more business and government experience than Obama had when the country immaculated him. I know Ryan is not running against Obama but the claim from the left in 2008 (and some on the right) was that Palin did not have the experience to step in should McCain not be able to complete his term (which it looks like he would have). Palin had more experience than Obama so I expect to see the ads claiming Ryan is not ready to step in. In fact, there is already one article making that claim. It is a bunch of bunk (where was this person when Obama was running) so I expect more to come.
The Twitter world was ablaze with condemnation from the left and there were wishes that Ryan would die young like his father and grandfather (even if that happened he would have been out of office for 5 years assuming two terms). Kos pointed out that Ryan is white. I wonder why it is that the people who claim they are the champions of minorities and non racist are always the first to notice color.
Ryan is white, OK. So is Joe Biden but no one screamed about that. So was Al Gore but then again Bill Clinton was our first black president so I guess that was OK.
I guess Kos wanted people to think of Republicans as the party of the white guy but that falls short. The left is full of racists who will play the color game at every opportunity. Even black folks on the left play it. Allen West was portrayed in an ad with every stereotype of a black man you could think of and the NAACP reviewed it and claimed it was not racist. If that had been a conservative ad with Obama being stereotyped the NAACP would have lost its mind.
But I digress.
Democrats are playing games and attacking Ryan but they would be wise to worry. He is no pushover and I think he will wipe the floor with Biden when they debate.
The field is now set for the election and this will be brutal. Obama promised that he would not use attack ads and that he was a different kind of politician. We know that is a lie and we know he will use Chicago thuggery and do everything he can to win.
Obama needs four more years to complete his dismantling of the country. He needs more time to see the dreams of his real father fulfilled. He needs time to help George Soros destroy this great nation. Obama, as he said to the Russians, will have more flexibility if he gets a second term. He will finish the destruction that he started in 2009.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are determined to keep that from happening. The left is vile and the attacks will be vicious but that will not stop us from achieving victory.
It is November or never for America and Romney and Ryan know that as do all sane people.
We will stop Obama and the Socialists from ruining this nation.
Energy is on our side, now we need to be vigilant because the Dems are going to cheat.
Not on my watch people, not on my watch.
Never surrender, never submit.
