Meanwhile, back at the White House...



In the end this was a battle b/t Obama and Boehner, and Boehner lost. Lost BIG! Lost because his own team stabbed him in the back. And all Obama had to do was consider Boehner's proposal for the GOP to reject it. Because the GOP will commit suicide rather than deal honestly with that Black guy in their White House.

Plan C

Moments before announcing defeat to GOP colleagues, Speaker Boehner recited the Serenity Prayer








Speaker offered a prayer before announcing the defeat of 'Plan B'
By Molly K. Hooper, Peter Schroeder and Russell Berman - 12/20/12 09:53 PM ET

Moments before announcing defeat to his GOP colleagues, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) recited the Serenity Prayer often heard at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.


“Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference,” the downtrodden House Speaker said at a hastily called closed-door meeting Thursday night to tell fellow House Republicans that he didn’t have to votes to pass his “Plan B” effort to avoid the "fiscal cliff."

....................................

Instead, the House would wait for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and President Obama to act on measures that the House passed earlier this year.

Nat'l Review: "Boys using Easy-Bake ovens" were the problem at Sandy Hook.

I am, however, blaming our culture that denies, dismisses, and denigrates the masculine traits—including size, strength, male aggression and a male facility for strategic thinking–that until recently have been viewed as essential for building a society and protecting its weaker members. We now have Hanna Rosin at Slate urging parents to buy their little boys Easy Bake ovens so they’ll be more like little girls. Women are less aggressive by instinct, and they are typically trained to be nice. I praised and continue to praise the courage of the Sandy Hook principal, Dawn Hochsburg, and the teachers who gave up their lives along with her, but with some men on the scene who knew what to do, some of those lives might have been saved.

We Must Accept That Mitt Romney Won the Election with a Mandate

We Must Accept That Mitt Romney Won the Election with a Mandate
by TheNewDeal00


....................

Mitt Romney won with a strong mandate. So we must be willing to compromise things like Social Security and understand that our ideas lost this November.

Besides, every poll shows that Medicare and Social Security are highly unpopular and that Americans support giving the rich more tax cuts while their benefits get cut.

If Obama had won, then maybe we could stand up and use our mandate to protect seniors in the fiscal cliff deal.

However this is just not reality. So we must accept that Social Security will be cut because this is what the country wants and asked for in November by Electing Mitt Romney as the President of the United States.

Oh well. Maybe we can gain seats in the 2014 election with the popularity we'll gain by fulfilling the public's demand to cut Social Security. Americans hate Social Security.

Reagan: "Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit."

Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employer and employee. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund to reduce the deficit. It would go into the Social Security Trust Fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing a budget or erasing or growing the deficit.
