Obama's game of Chicken

12/05/2012 new

What do you think of Pres. Obama's strategy of playing chicken with the fiscal cliff?


I think if the House doesn't budge, he may be able to be held at bay for the next 4 years. If the House caves in, Obama may dominate the next 4 years and we will be in big trouble.

Well, game of chicken, maybe? All he has to do is sign the continuation of the Bush Tax cuts at least. Then there will
be less to figure out for the new year, given all that will happen with the fiscal cliff. He is a conniver. We all know
that. A puppet too.

Yes, I hope we can keep him at bay for the next four years. He is turning into a dictator.

The little secret the press doesn't want to report. The institute for Supply Management's index of manufacturing activity fell to 49.5 in November which is the lowest level in over 3 years. Readings under 50 indicate shrinking activity. Shrinking activity means manufacturers are getting defensive. Employment in manufacturing also contracted for the first time in 3 years, and the measures of inventory dropped from 50 to 45, suggesting suppliers are keeping inventories low.

While Obama may be playing a game of chicken, and the polls show people will likely blame the Republicans if a resolution isn't reached, Obama has a lot more to lose on the jobs front if he doesn't get something done.

We are seeing shrinking manufacturing activity and layoffs in our area. It doesn't look good especially for the line workers who just want to go to work every day and provide for their family. Of course the managers and owners are having to make judgment calls on how far to cut back. I'm hoping the Republicans will hold their ground. A short term loss is so much better than the long term one we will get if Obama gets free reign.

Boener is going to cave. He has no spine. He has no idea how to lead. and he will lead the GOP to masive defeat. Boener has already conceded $800 billion in new tax revenue without one dime of spending cuts. Boener is no conservative, and he is an economic moron. Expect the worst, because that is all you can expect. The GOP should just offer to cut the tax tates and additional 10% for all but the top tax brackets and go home. When they return, the GOP should tell Obama that they will not be raising the debt cieling, and that every federal agency will have to cut their budgets appropriately. I work for the Federal govt, and it would hurt, but if the GOP does not reduce spending, nobody will have a job.

Oh yeah, tell your congressman not to vote for Boener as Speaker. We need a leader, not a spineless jellyfish. Obama has rolled Boener in every negotiation. Tip O'neal and Newt Gingritch would never have been steamrollered so badly.
