Message Subject The Fiscal Cliff is how Obama ends the United States

Nope. Repubs have the power to avert it, if they took their mouths off of the cocks of the rich, but they won't, cuz they're good bitches. When you lose seats in every chamber in an election, it means the country isn't behind you. Polling has shown a big majority of American's in favor of taxing the rich...it's not even close. But it seems like that rich dick is just too good to let go of! hahahahaha!

Obama is the driver -- he's the one taking America off the cliff. NEVER EVER FORGET THIS.

DEMOCRATS drove America off the cliff. Remember that next election...

That statement is so erroneous, I don't even know where to start. To begin with, GWB took us to the fiscal cliff. Even most conservative pundits agree with this. It was his tax and fiscal policies that set this up to happen.

Also, Obama can't force congress to act. He also doesn't have to give in to every tantrum and whim they may have. They're adults, and can gauge what they do and do not want to negotiate. The key word here is NEGOTIATE. When you LOSE as bad as the Repugs did, your bargaining position is weaker. The nation isn't with you. Polling shows huge margins of Americans favor taxing the rich at a higher rate. This includes republican voters.

Currently, Obama is touring the country, taking up precious media time to frame this thing as a Repug hostage taking, and it's working--presumably because it's the truth. We will see in the next election, just as we did with this one.

This country has changed, and some don't want to see it.

Center-Left from now on! The "traditional voter" is taking his last gasps!

You do realize that Obama did not win big.

This country is pretty much split in two. Obama does not have any mandate.

obama did not win big. that said the majority of america is sick of the rich being catered to by our politicians. warren buffet and other extremely wealthy americans have gone on record saying the rich need to be taxed more.
