Obama threatens to blame Republicans (as usual).

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.”

Obama WANTS the U.S. to go over the fiscal cliff!

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.

Obama is ready and willing to go over the fiscal cliff!

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.

Update: It turns out that 75% of Obama’s proposed tax hikes– which the Republican House of Representatives oppose due to the flailing economy– go toward NEW government spending!

Obamacare forced upon the American people

Democrats in Congress with nothing but contempt for the limits on federal power explicitly set forth in the U.S. Constitution:

Nancy Pelosi, House Democrat: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

QUESTION: Where does the Constitution authorize Congress to force Americans to buy health insurance? ANSWER from Nancy Pelosi, House Democrat: “Are you serious?”

Phil Hare, House Democrat: He ADMITS that he doesn’t care what the Constitution says… AND he admits that he doesn’t even know what the Constitution says!!! 

Kathy Hochul, House Democrat: She ADMITS that she and her colleagues in Congress are “not looking to the Constitution.”

John Conyers, House Democrat: Ask the Constitutional scholars!!!

Mary Landrieu, Senate Democrat: “Well, we’re very lucky as members of the Senate to have constitutional lawyers on our staff, so I’ll let them answer that.”

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.
