So The President is in negotiations with the Republicans about the “Fiscal Cliff” and trying to strike a deal with them. They of course don’t understand the weakness of their position and wouldn’t admit it if they did.
It could be that; in their hearts; they believe this is just another temporary slump. I hope not. If so; a couple more elections like this last one and even their beady, squinty little eyes are bound to be opened.
I don’t think all of them could still be in denial though. The Leaders of the Republican Party are not stupid in a conventional sense. They have to know going in that if pushed to the wall; they will have to relent or bear the heated anger of the entire nation (other than the top 2% of course).
I hope The President never loses sight of this fact either.
But just how much should he compromise with these Republican thieves and “Snake Oil” peddlers?…………………………..
Now That The Republicans Have Lost The Election; Wait; Let Me Say That Again; Now That The Republicans Have Lost The Election;Just Sounds Good Huh?
Now that the Republicans have lost the election; many are tearing their outer garments and pulling their hair out trying to figure out why they lost; other than “Anonymous” preventing the wide-spread fraud that Karl Rove and friends thought they had so meticulously planned. It is a real problem. The Republicans are just beginning to realize that what they have; America doesn’t want.
So how does one take a party like theirs; steeped in the superstition and ignorance of the Middle Ages; and make it palatable for 21st century voters?………………….
On Sunday; five days after Barack Obama being given an obvious Mandate by the American people; a prominent Republican made this statement:
“Now it’s time for The President to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate; step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment; and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.”;
I have had many conversations with Republicans both online and in person and it never fails to amaze me how even when confronted with the cold steel of reality; they fail to admit defeat.
Rather like the Black Knight in the Monty Python movie who continues to battle on even after his arms and legs are cut off; threatening, “Come on you bloody coward; I’ll chew your leg off.”
Some of them are now saying they need to reach out to Latinos and women. Translated; that reads: “Pretend to care about them so they will vote for us”……………………….
Need I say More?
It must be killing you.
So we pray; (E nominea Diminoes; et a nice Filet; et Spirits of Sanctimonium)
The Mandate? Help the middle class and make America a land of equality for all people…………..
That is the picture the Republicans have painted in hopes of making The President look guilty if an agreement is not reached. They hope to keep the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and the Bush tax cuts for the Middle Class attached to one another so that they can try to force President Obama to extend the tax cuts for everyone including the top 2% of the nation.
I don’t believe that Barack Obama is a man to be pushed into any such thing. If I did; I and millions upon millions of my Brothers and Sisters in the fight for freedom and equality wouldn’t have worked so hard to elect and re-elect him.
The President has proposed and supported a Bill which has already been passed by the Senate; approved by the Democrats in The House and is now just waiting for the Republicans in The House; led by the ever disrespectful and quite plainly Racist; John Boehner; to decide if they are willing to oppose the will of the majority of Americans who have sent this president a mandate to increase taxes on the top 2% or if they will pretend to be willing to accept such an action so-as to appear co-operative while they plot their next attempt at undermining the will of the people and the authority of their President.
The only sure thing is that whatever they do; it will be for a reason only they know and will be whatever they think will make them look their best. They will however; harbor a flaming hot hatred for Barack Obama for defeating them.
So what else can I say? What might the Angryman tell you that is new or beyond what I have already said?
Well as it happens I would like to say that…………
