Default Obama taking a LOT of heat from...

His own party...

wow, coming at him rapid fire right now.

calling him weak, and not able to stand his ground. saying he fails to come through on promises yet again.


Is this the left possibly gearing up for cutting their losses at the top and focusing on trying to gain back seats in the house and senate in 2012?

It really sounds like they are setting things up to hang him out to dry in 2012.

Interesting stuff going on politically right now. Very interesting.

The fight for power is more important than addressing issues at hand.

well... the deal he just made went against his campaign promises that he made a large part of his economic "package" sold during his campaign.

his calls for fiscal responsibility hinged on focused tax cuts for 95% of Americans and effectively 'redistributing' the tax burdens up the scale. this deal goes against that.

obviously it was a negotiation and he had to give something up but letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the top 5% was a pillar of what he was selling. right or wrong as a policy, it was the bill of goods he was offering.

then you add in the estate tax exemptions and he pisses off even more people on the left that don't like oligarchies...


all in all, it was a decent deal (or so I'm currently thinking) but it goes against his campaign statements so people are pissy.

Please tell them they can fuck off, they have the same shot to accumulate wealth as the rest of the country and Uncle Sam is being allowed to literally rob the dead.

I'm all for letting the Bush tax cuts expire to put more money toward the deficit/debt (it's time people started feeling the crazy spending in Washington), but the estate tax is fucking stupid.

We tax people when they earn money and tax people when they spend money. We should NOT be also taxing people when they do not spend money.

I appreciate what he's saying about compromise... but he's still delusioned that he hasn't come off campaign promises... and that just infuriates me.

It's all about admitting defeat without actually admitting defeat. People need to stop wanting their cake and eating it too. Politicians promise things all the time based on ideals. To realistically think that they can accomplish them all is assinine. In this case his actions should be the real victory, who cares if his words say he couldn't get it done? Some things are impossible in Washington with all of the partisan hackery going on there. Washington needs to start caring about the American people and not themselves.

This times a million, yet it won't happen without a massive change-up of the personnel there.
