23 states petitioned the White House to secede from the Union after Obama’s re-election. Obama has encouraged his racist supporters, viciously belittled Mitt Romney during the campaign season, and laughed at a “joke” about wanting Rush Limbaugh dead.
But all of that apparently isn’t enough for the self-proclaimed “bi-partisan” and “unifying” Barack Obama. In a valiant effort to become THE most divisive U.S. President in history (beyond any shadow of a doubt), Obama threatened Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner during the fiscal cliff negotiations that if Republicans didn’t reach an agreement with Democrats, Obama “would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.” In case we had any question about Obama’s lack of class, it’s been reported that after Republican Boehner made a major concession and asked for a compromise from Obama in return, Obama responded: “You get nothing. I get that for free.”
Not only is Obama ready and willing to take the U.S. over the fiscal cliff— he actually WANTS America to be brought to ruin! The wishy-washy Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner, went so far as to offer to raise taxes on higher-income Americans in order to reach a deal– but Obama rejected this “major concession” from the Republicans!
It turns out that the Democrats themselves proposed “that the House should vote to raise taxes on household incomes of more than $1 million” in May 2012! But now, after the Republicans agreed to compromise in order to avert catastrophe, the Democrats “are urging their party’s lawmakers to vote against” their own proposal.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geither says the Obama administration is “absolutely” ready to go over the fiscal cliff (causing $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax increases), if the Republican House of Representatives refuses to do Obama’s bidding and raise taxes on Americans with incomes in the top 2%. Obama believes he has absolute power, and that it’s irrelevant that the American people elected a Republican House of Representatives– he’s made it very clear that he’s willing to sacrifice the prosperity of the American people in order to get his way.
Democrats in Congress with nothing but contempt for the limits on federal power explicitly set forth in the U.S. Constitution:
Tragically, Obamacare got passed only because Democrats in Congress got bribed:
The “Louisiana Purchase” of Senator Mary Landrieu and the “Cornhusker Kickback” for Senator Ben Nelson are only two of these notorious backroom deals.
