Where’s the gratitude?

President Obama is raising my taxes. I am barely above the poverty line.

Just thought you guys should know that, while the stimulus of the forthcoming traffic at Mercedes and Maserati dealerships is certainly appreciated.

Some beat on the poor uppity guy

63. A stimulus tax cut was scheduled to end, and is ending.

But no one raised your taxes just because a temporary credit expired. ,,,Permalink

and he responds

71. The one that helps the rich was scheduled to end, too. But only the one for the poor did. n/t Permalink

Still incredulous

“It’s like this amazing guy ran for office, and his evil twin took over the WH.”

From Bob Kuttner, calling in to Big Ed’s show today.

Relax, Bob, Os – he was never amazing. It was all in your head – as we warned you over and over. This is good too

20. It’s like these amazing people elected Obama to counter 8 years of Bush, and then their evil twins

started ignoring all the things Obama did to CONTINUE those failed Bush policies, and even offered endless and inane excuses for Obama when he failed to keep even his most basic campaign promises.

You mean like that? Permalink

Of course, you are amazing in your own minds as well.

and the chess continues

The MINUTE Obama signed the tax bill, the Republicans start taking hostages again!

They’re holding the START treaty hostage, demanding that Reid not bring up DADT or the Dream Act tommorrow!

WHY was this so hard for Obama to figure out? Lucy, Charlie Brown and the football.

All he had to do was sit there holding the tax cut bill HOSTAGE till they let the votes on the other bills come up!


One actually states

13. Obama seems to have lost his 3 dimensional chess game

We’re in trouble folks, we really are… Permalink

WHAT GAME WAS THAT? He made concessions with historical majorities too!!!!!

More marvels of spin

I can’t wait for the Republicans to take over the House


Let’s face it, this economy isn’t going to start creating jobs all of a sudden just because the tax cut bill was passed. Far from it. If the Democrats had held both houses of Congress, then they would continue to get the blame AND the right would have a valuable card to play in trying to get even more tax concessions from the uber-wealthy and if there is a double-dip, guess who is finally going to get the blame?….

I’m truly hoping that the President takes a good long look at all situations requiring compromise and make sure that the compromise doesn’t screw us in the long-term. Maybe with a Republican House, he’ll also be able to stand firm on various issues now that it won’t seem like he’s running up against a wall created by his own party

5. Great post, toddwv. This is why Boehner is crying all the time and peeing in his shoes.

In a few weeks, he has to show the American people how he governs. I’m giddy about it. Permalink

A more sentient discussion

Socialism for the rich. We have arrived.


And, this afternoon, Barack Obama will bless George W. Bush’s obscene tax giveaways to the rich; drill into the sacrosanct, dedicated funding for Social Security for the first time since its creation; and pave the way to bankruptcy for the states and the annihilation of workers’ pension funds.

And Mitch McConnell will be gleefully standing by his side.

Socialism for the rich.

Misery for the people.

A turncoat president.

We have arrived.

DADT gets cheerleaders in top gear

I was going to ask if we can start saying nice things about President Obama again

But I can see no matter what he does, some will find ways to complain about it find a dark side to bitch about.

Thank you President Obama for making the repeal of DADT happen.

Make no mistake about it, our Democratic President made this happen. He reversed a policy created by Bill Clinton.

President Obama made health care reform happen when Bill and Hillary Clinton got lambasted by it.

President Obama is smarter than we know and he is going to continue to make things happen in ways large and small.

I love our President, always have.

Some see the sophistry

61. No, your blind spot notwithstanding, there is a double standard on your side too.

When something bad happens, Pres. Obama can’t take any blame because the votes weren’t there. Something good, it’s a major accomplishment for Pres. Obama, and not simply something that had the votes.

Reminds me of how religious people attribute everything good to the glory of their deity but he’s invariably MIA when bad things happen. Permalink

and to their protests

73. Look, we have a test case today. DADT repeal passed but DREAM failed.

DADT is considered the Presidents accomplishment now. So does he share any blame for the DREAM Act failing? Permalink

and they fall for it

75. Who stopped the Dream Act?

Again, the Republicans are assholes and anti everything.

President Obama supported the Dream Act but he is not on the Congress Floor. It is up to Nancy Pelosi and Reid to to get theis bills moved to the next level.

If President Obama made a deal or some compromise on something else to get it passed then we would here that he compromised.

I do get dissapointed but I am able to at least enjoy a victory before moving on to the next issue.

so they get it

76. And cannot the same be said of DADT? eom Permalink

And they try to say the tax cuts were the price for DADT

THIS is one of the reasons Obama compromised on tax cuts

DADT probably would never never passed otherwise. And there are a whole host of other reasons as well.

Nice try, but not much of a sale

1. Then it should have been in the tax bill

and some are POd

The bizarre reference to the First Lady of many years ago should be reason enough. It’s like calling out Mrs. Obama for escalation in Afghanistan. Well, just one of those puzzling things in life I guess.

New ways of offending Obama& Os

I have a problem with people referring to our President as Obama

and not President Obama or The President. The use of his last name only is an effort to minimize him and disrespect him. The use of his last name without his title is used exclusively by right wing media (Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity never refer to him as “President Obama” but I also see it used very often on DU. He is not “Obama,” he is President Obama the democratically elected President of the United States of America. Don’t help out the right by disrespecting the president.

Some fall in line

21. I agree and I’ll try to make more of an effort to call him “President Obama”

Thanks for this post. It’s something we rarely think about but I never called President Bush just “Bush” I always said “President Bush” just because it was habit. Then for some reason it became habit and cool to just say “Obama” but I think you’re right that psychologically it does have a negative effect on him by not having people actually refer to him as “President” somehow. It’s his title and he earned it, we should show some respect and call him that just like we would a doctor. Permalink

Some are snarky

8. I must disagree with Poster Mortos. Permalink

and some are right

29. Ok. We’ll all refer to the President as Bush, since he’s apparently still in charge.

This reminds me of the D.A.R. who mounted a loud campaign in the 1940s to have all the signs leading to the George Washington Bridge over the Hudson River changed so as to read, “General George Washington Bridge.”

The multi-dimensional chess is back!

This is Some Serious Chess Obama is Playing Here

I must say, I’ve been quite critical of the President over his cabinet appointments, the “HCR” outcome, and the tax cuts for the rich. But with his gamble on letting the Senate repeal DADT, maybe it shows he is in this for the long-haul. Now if the tax cuts for the rich are really allowed to expire in 2 years, and we actually get a public option before the mandatory-private-insurance law goes into effect in 2014, I’ll have to admit that Obama has mostly redeemed himself, and maybe these intermediary measures were justified….

Some buy it

But they have company

Biden says he and Obama will fight wealthy tax cuts in 2012

Vice President Joe Biden said today that he and President Obama will fight to end the “morally troubling” yet newly renewed tax cuts for rich Americans in the re-election year of 2012.

“The one target for us in two years is no longer extending the upper income tax credit for millionaires and billionaires,” Biden said on NBC’s Meet The Press. “And scaling back what we had to do to get the compromise, the estate tax for the very wealthy.”

“We’re coming back and going at it again,” Biden later added.

“Taking an incremental step forward” (doesn’t have to make sense)

“Playing Chess”

“Being pragmatic/realistic”

“Getting 90%”

“..Not letting the Perfect get in the way of The Good”

The latest kabuki is not too successful

Obama reaches out to liberal groups to shore up Democratic base after tax deal

Much of the White House’s interaction with liberal groups has taken place at a weekly Tuesday meeting at a downtown Washington hotel. The “common purpose” gatherings are closed-door sessions between top Obama aides and officials from dozens of left-leaning interest groups such as unions, youth voting groups, women’s organizations, gay rights advocates and civil rights activists. Attendees are required to keep all proceedings secret and off the record.

Some are asking if this is from the Onion. Others are more blunt

5. Awww…you mean your “new” friends the rich aren’t going

vote for you? No way!! You just gave them a few billion dollars in tax breaks and they STILL won’t like you? Shucks…guess you got to turn back to the purists and the sanctamonious crowd now for friends.

Some amazing comments here

Left Likely to Keep Wallets Closed for ‘Obama the Centrist’

In a quick read of the article they talk about Obama taking in $500 million via the

internet — as I recall it was much closer to way over $800 million, closer to $900 million.

Obama then went back on his decision not to take corporate money.

PLUS Obama took in something like another $280,000 from DU members alone!!!

(If I recall that correctly?)

This last election cost $4 BILLION —

Note that for every $7 Republicans got, Democrats got $1 —

Seems to be a message there re “poo on your shoe”?

Possibly Democrats will have second thoughts about it — at least those who

aren’t millionaires and multi-millionaires, or looking to be?

Of course, much of this “internet money” was big donations laundered in small bills, but at least they got it about the future

12. Maybe we should pay him to change?

18. He won’t.

He can be a much more effective servant of the PTB by keeping the D.

That way, he blocks access to the White House for any other (i.e. real) Dem.

AND he can implement puke policies while letting the public think it’s all the Democrats fault.

He won’t change parties and his REAL base wouldn’t let him. Permalink

ABC NEWS/WashPost Poll question 1

Are you in favor of this tax compromise or would you rather have a red hot iron poker slowly inserted into your anus?

The fact is that this and the WaPo/WSJ poll asked questions that insured a high approval result. Simply Google for the poll data and read the questions for yourself! Permalink

And some notes how they all came full circle

Unjust wars and unfair taxes

Those were the two biggest issues on our platform and the reason we got back into the White House.

Now all of a sudden Bush’s tax program is fair, and the war in Afghanistan is a just war and well worth escalating. Let’s keep spending billions upon billions on wars we can’t win. Makes a lot of sense.

Someone actually puts this thing in context

9. A couple things about this poll………

1. Gallup and McClatchy-Marist have the president at 42% and 46% respectively. That probably means that this poll is an anomaly.

2. If you accep this poll, then the public trust issue of 43/38 is almost a dead heat with the 3.5 MOE.

3. At this time in presidency, Carter was at 50%, in fact Carter was at 51% approval when he lost Reagan two years later.

4. Again, that 87% support among liberals is an anomaly only to this poll. Gallup has him at 69% with liberals and 79% with liberal Democrats.  Permalink

Having just read that Obama will cut Social Security next, this was a bracing read

The absolute brilliance of Obama’s tactic on the tax deal the ultra-left just can’t see:

A long lecture on how Obama made Rs “play ball” by giving them what they wanted

One cuts through the BS

6. If brilliance is ceding enough ground to force compromise, then you’re right

Perhaps Obama should promise to torture possible terrorists on American soil; then, the Republicans might let him close Guantanamo. Or maybe if he promises to nuke North Korea, the Republicans will let him leave Afghanistan. Permalink

Obama is slowly getting his swagger back

Immediately after the mid term elections he looked like a sad, lost puppy lol…

But now with this tax deal, the speech in North Carolina, the fiery press meeting…it seems he’s getting that swag back. I expect him to hit a huge home run at the State of the Union. Its gonna be a big year for the Pres in 2011…

This concludes today’s DUdies

See you next Tuesday,

Seems Stockholm syndrome has became a theme as of late.

I still do not watch SNL – although after catching up on line this morning, this may change.

SNL’s Obama Literally Held Hostage By Republicans, Now A Conservative Birther

Here’s a write-up + video  of the opening monologue

After being held hostage for three days, the effects of Stockholm syndrome took hold, he says. By the fourth day, it was too late. At that point, the conversion was complete and he could finally see that “the tax cuts for the wealthy aren’t a big problem. They’re the best part of the bill!”

He assured us that the rich would use the money to create jobs, “millions and millions of jobs.” After all, Rush Limbaugh himself said he’d “never been hired by a poor person.”

Funny as it is, SNL was not the first to hit this (and I am not even referring to Frank Rich’s recent Stockholm Syndrome piece)

There was a pretty good Borowitz Report

In Latest Compromise with GOP, Obama Agrees He is a Muslim

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In his latest effort to find common ground with Republicans in Congress, President Barack Obama said today that he was willing to agree that he is a Muslim.

“The American people do not want to see us fighting in Washington,” Mr. Obama told reporters at the White House.  “They want to see us working together to improve their lives, and Allah willing, we will.”

and, joke aside, his Os, who missed all that post-partisanship in the campaign and the 130 “Present” votes are also wondering – seriously

The President is under a Threat

I think it is time that we seriously consider the possibility that Obama is under a direct threat from the powerful forces that control this government – military contractors, big banks, multinationals. Nothing in his background – not his upbringing, his academic studies and achievements, his willingness to take his top-drawer legal education back to the poorer streets of Chicago, his legislative record, his record of striving and succeeding, his campaign rhetoric – NOTHING suggested that he would be so monumentally weak and capitulating.
But his actions lately suggest that HE is a hostage. When he said the GOP were holding something hostage, I think he meant himself and his family. Is he under direct threat? Are his daughters and wife being threatened? Did the money men show him a film of the assassination of JFK from a different angle, as Bill Hicks suggested?

Few disagree

3. So maybe President Clinton is under a direct threat too because of the dual press conference. Maybe

the white house dog Bo! Maybe they’re gonna’ break all the white house china! Hostage my ass. Permalink

I guess that would mean the joke is – quite literally – on the Os.

My second startle came with this tweet

It’s another one of those moments when they get it (like “Our long nightmare…“)

Starting with the idea that Obama has all our e-mails. And he was just after missing the 3AM call in the morning

According to its timestamp, the e-mail was sent at 4:26 a.m.

“Hey Everyone,” read the first line of the president’s note, which at 27 megabytes proved too large for millions of Americans’ in-boxes.


“Anyway,” the e-mail continued.

A 150-page printout confirms that while Obama’s points are generally cogent in the first quarter of the message, the increasingly chaotic spacing, multiple spelling errors, and near total lack of commas rendered the later portions almost impossible to parse.

and ends with

“Yes we can!” the e-mail concluded. “Ugh, you know what? Forget it. Believe what you want. Yours, Barack.”

Someone seems to have been a fly on the wall….
