WHO Writes this nonsense? His proposals if enacted would solve nothing. The debt is ruinous and he could care less about it. In addition, his tax proposals will kill more jobs. He shows NO desire to stop spending so who are you kidding? The only thing he cares about his taking from producers to feed his base with their money.

With his mindless liberal ideology pushing more tax and spend, obama’s true purpose will be coming through and America will suffer for it. A more corrosive, destructive administration has not been seen in many decades, if ever. The ignorance of the American people to elect an incompetent president is amazing, and was bought and paid for.

I see there are still some folks around who plan to suffer, and not silently, for four more years. Pity.

If find is appalling how many leftists forget just how liberal Mr Obama is. Then, they come on here blaming Republicans for not agreeing with his leftist agenda. Sadly enough, they think taxing the 1% will solve all our problems – we can tax more, spend more and live in prosperity. What they forget is one basic principle: debt is not free. We a debt of over 16 trillion with interest rates to soon climb to 1 trillion. It doesn’t take a genius to realize we HAVE to cut spending dramatically along with taxing those who are successful – it’s our only hope at this point.

Obama loves campaigning, he just can’t stop. What he lacks is the ability to lead and the skills to negotiate with Congress. He should try staying in Washington and building relationships he needs to be a leader. Not Obama, he chooses to insult and dictate, treating others as adversaries. We should put Air Force One on a budget and force Obama to spend some of his time at the WH, at least acting like a President!

Although I oppose asking businessmen for advice when that demographic opposed the outcome of the election; I still support the President. If politicians could clearly define the goals and illustrate factually how those goals would be achieved, we’d learn that there is only one right way to proceed. Alas, clarity such as that impedes greed and opportunities to exploit the nation.

IS THIS A JOKE??? Like Sabrina12 says, “Who writes this non-sense?” Dear President Obama, maybe you could consider A LOT of things like cutting back the defense budget WAY more and IMMEDIATELY. And, how about politicians salaries and pensions? You know what is a total waste of hard earned tax payers money? TOO MANY THINGS TO MENTION IN THIS LITTLE BOX. Instead of you going around seeking answers, I think We the People should be going around and demanding the answers and therefore STOPPING all of Washington’s needless spending. All that “Homeland Security” stuff is crap. Scare the people, keep them scared and paranoid, and then fleece the hell out of them. Businesses and companies are stealing from the consumers because the State and Washington are stealing from the companies, businesses, AND the consumers. There’s more than enough money to go around for EVERYONE. Minimum wage is worse than a joke and there is absolutely NO NEED for all the greed and corruption and nor is there a need for the politicians who support it and receive from it. WAKE UP, America!!

Leftist and rightness only serve to divide and not solve issues. Congress, as many who comment could stop acting like 8th grade snots accomplishing nothing but division and stop embarasing America. How about getting the work done. Thought the message was pretty cleare Nov.6th 2012. What is it about democracy many don’t get?

Looks like a lot of people, who no doubt call themselves Conservatives, would yet prefer the President fail along with the majority of the population in order that they might continue to complain about this president. Yes, they would rather the economy go to Helll than for Obama to succeed. His plan probably makes the most sense since keeping tax cut for the middle class will preserve their purchasing power at a time it is needed, and removing tax cuts for the wealthy will help to start paying the debt down at the same time. Rather than creating the jobs, the wealthy are more adept at hoarding money – a recent independent study has shown this trickle down theory to be bogus.

I see a lot of racist people in here today, get over it, all you people do is bring America down. In fact without all of you the country would be doing much better, al least keep your pie-holes closed so things can get better. If I remember it was your guy Bush that started the disaster and Obama that is doing a good job at fixing it.

To date, President Obama has offered nothing to fix the oceans of federal debt, and the oncoming disaster. Why? There must be an end game in mind. Perhaps a Greek like fiscal crisis (that is coming) would justify the seizing of individuals assets to “stabilize” the situation. I fear this is his plan. There must be a reason he refuses to actually fix the problem. Time will tell.

4 more years of broken promises from Obama while he blames Republicans for everything.

The funniest thing about this whole mess is the plan that the republicans propose brings in MORE MONEY TO THE GOVERNMENT THAN OBAMA’S. Now why do you think Obama doesn’t like it? Probably something to do with the fact that he can’t control our every little move.

Obama/biden need to resign right now before our country is any more damaged.

This isn’t a referendum Mr. President. You need to spend your time talking with the people who will actually vote to pass something (Congressmen and Senators). Taking your dog and pony show on the road might make you feel better, but will do nothing to actually pass legislation. I am convinced the President is not interested in passing anything until 2013, after the so-called fiscal cliff begins. This campaigning he’s doing is to score political points for January negotiations, not December.

This is precisely why Obama has been such a failure of a President so far: he thinks that by campaigning instead of governing, his legislation will pass itself. Instead of talking to Congress, he’s “taking this to the American people”. That’s all well and good, but with the election over, there’s not much more the people can do. They elected you to do a job, not to drive a limo around Pennsylvania so you can be patted on the back by sycophantic supporters. Obama: stop the nonsense and do your job.

Nearly 50% of American’s don’t pay any income taxes anyway and I seriously doubt that 98% of the current income taxpayers will see their tax rate go up. There is no middle class anymore, there are the haves who pay income tax and the have nots that don’t. Most of the jobs at retailers and restaurants will not make enough to pay any significant income taxes. Only the dwindling manufacturing jobs and government jobs pay enough to have their taxes increase, besides the rich of course.

If the right does not want to listen to, or support Obama’s plan then it make sense he would go to the public to garner further support and to pressure the right with public opinion. You would think that since over 70% of Americans want the proposed “tax on the rich” that the right would listen, but they are still stuck in denial.

Some believe that Obama does not have a plan to deal with the deficit. If this is a president without a plan, then he sure is doing well on reducing the deficit. (read below) If the deficit can be reduced without the Republicans cooperation, just imagine what could be done if the parties worked together!

Monday Oct 15th: “Late Friday afternoon, the Treasury Department published the official report on the U.S. budget deficit for the most recent fiscal year: $1.089 trillion. While that’s obviously still a very large budget shortfall, the deficit is $200 billion smaller than it was last year, and is nearly $300 billion smaller than when President Obama took office.

To add a little historical context to this, over the last four decades, only two presidents have reduced the deficit this much, this quickly: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.”

All the “doom and gloomers” here will continue to support any lies that weakens the president. The fact that Obama’s fiscal plans are actually working is something they cannot wrap their head around and does not compute with the I hate Obama mentality.

I think it fitting that the next people to be murdered in America are those that are supporting obama over Bengahzi. Just how much support do yo think he would be for you and your family if you were?

Not only is your post WAY off topic, it is more than just a little scarey that you would even put that in print. It’s one thing to feel strongly over an issue, but to suggest killing people over their position on Benghazi is frightening.

Obviously you feel strongly, but perhaps you could articulate it without calling for murder. And, also post in an appropriate blog related to your point.
