"Angry with Obama, GOP threatens political war next year"

Angry with Obama, GOP threatens political war next year

By Tom Cohen, CNN

"SNIP..............................................


Conservative Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, promised the newly re-elected Obama "one hell of a fight" next year if the president forces through his plan for high-income earners to pay more taxes without agreeing to substantive steps to reduce the nation's chronic federal deficits and debt.

"But there will come a time in February and March where we have to raise the debt ceiling," Graham said Tuesday on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on CNN.

"I will not raise the debt ceiling ever again until we get significant entitlement reforms, because if we don't reform entitlements, we're going to become Greece," adding that the situation presented a chance for Obama to lead. "But if he doesn't lead, there's going to be one hell of a fight over raising the debt ceiling."

Survey: 70% want compromise

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell concurred on Tuesday, telling reporters that "we are going to insist that we have another discussion about the future of our country in connection with his request of us to raise the debt ceiling."

2. Next year? They've been at war with him since the night of his inauguration.

The only difference now is that until election day they thought they'd won, or were about to win. ANd they got their asses handed to them, and they're whining. But their "war" never ended.

You did your best in the last four years and lost. Do your best for the next four years. You may make progress slow but it will still be progress.

12. Hey Lindsey, how about we lay siege on you and your confederates?

Few thousand, displaying their right to keep and bear arms posted up at your gated communities might be good for you.

I think these fuckers need some visceral reminders of how precarious their position actually is.
