Campaigner/Agitator in Chief Obama Gloats and Attacks During FISCAL Cliff Presser … Leaves GOP Peeved, “does POTUS want a deal or not?”
The Agitator in Chief … There is just no doubt about it, President Obama is a miserable excuse for a president and his sole purpose is to agitate and divide the country.
Barack Obama just cannot stop campaigning and cannot stop his divisive nature as he agitated the GOP today in the midst of Republicans and Democrats negotiating a fiscal cliff compromise. During his campaign stump-style speech he ripped Republicans for their anti-tax raising approach and praised himself for his ability to get them to raise taxes on the so-called rich. And you thought Obama was cocky before the election.
Obama certainly managed to piss off the Republicans. One has to wonder what this guys issues really are. Will Obama ever how leadership and actually act in a manner that is more than the boorish, poor winner? Sorry, but this guy has serious issues.
But his midday press conference, with a group of middle-class Americans looking on, was not without a bit of bravado as well. Obama took multiple shots at Congress for its clumsiness in negotiations and insisted that he’d demand more tax hikes if the legislative body used the impending debt ceiling standoff to demand spending cuts.
In the process, the president irked several Republican aides, who suggested that the entire fiscal cliff deal had been complicated because of his tone and criticism.
“Potus just moved the goalpost again. Significantly. This is new,” tweeted a top aide to McConnell.
Doug Heye, a spokesman for House Majority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.), tweeted, “If Obama’s goal was to harm the process and make going over the cliff more likely, he’s succeeding.” Another Cantor spokesperson said, “So….I’m confused….does POTUS want a deal or not? Because all those jabs at Congress certainly sounded like a smack in the face to me.”
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said the president “sent a message of confrontation” to Republicans, who could be voting on a deal in the next 24 hours. “I’m not sure … whether to be angry or to be saddened,” he added.
Black Monday, 7 NFL Coaches Get Sacked For Lack Of Performance … US Voters Could Learn Something, Should Have Given Obama the Ax
BLACK MONDAY … How fitting that on the final day of 2012, seven NFL coaches also had their final day with their respective teams as they were fired. The ax came down in a decisive way in Arizona, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Kansas City and San Diego as the Cardinals, Eagles, Bills, Browns, Chiefs and Chargers are all looking for new head coaches for 2013. Some NFL franchises also fired their GM’s as well. Other spared their head coaches and fired coordinators instead. Of all the coaches below who were sacked, I am mildly surprised that Lovie Smith of the Bears was fired.
Arizona Cardinals: Coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves are out, a team source told NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. The Cardinals later confirmed the moves.
Buffalo Bills: Coach Chan Gailey was let go after three seasons that went nowhere in Buffalo. The defense and quarterback play never improved. It’s unclear if general manager Buddy Nix will remain.
Chicago Bears: In the first mild surprise of the day, coach Lovie Smith was fired after three playoff appearances in nine years, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport first reported. General manager Phil Emery took the job last year and will hire his own man.
Cleveland Browns: The team announced Monday morning that coach Pat Shurmur and GM Tom Heckert are both out. They never had much of a chance once new owner Jimmy Haslam bought the team.
Kansas City Chiefs: Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt announced the Chiefs have parted ways with coach Romeo Crennel. The team said it has not made a final decision about GM Scott Pioli’s status. NFL.com’s Steve Wyche reported Sunday that the Chiefs are expected to retain Pioli despite a disastrous 2-14 season.
Philadelphia Eagles: Owner Jeffrey Lurie confirmed Monday morning that coach Andy Reid is out after 14 seasons in Philadelphia. The Eagles won’t waste any time starting a coaching search.
San Diego Chargers: The Chargers announced both coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith have been let go. Former Green Bay Packers GM Ron Wolf has been brought in as a consultant to help search for the next leadership group.
Personally, I am a little surprised that the Jacksonville Jags, Dallas Cowboys and NY Jets did not fire their coaches. Jacksonville was the worst team in football, the Cowboys have floundered in mediocrity failing to make the playoffs year after year and Rex Ryan, head coach of the Jets is the most over-rated coach in football.
The American voters could learn a thing or two from the NFL. Coaches that do little to nothing in one, two or three years do not deserve any longer. If Barack Obama was an NFL football coach he would have been fired after 4 failed year. To compare Obama’s presidency to an NFL team, it would have been the equivalent of taking over an aging 4-12 team. After four years of failed draft picks [green energy companies] and disastrous and pricey free agents pick ups [trillion dollar deficit spending] and transforming the football operations for the worse, Obama would have a 6-10 team and still blaming the previous coach for his plight.
However, sadly for the United States we seem to take the hiring and firing of football coaches more seriously then the electing of a president.

Ban on Assault Rifles? Why Isn’t Obama and Democrats Banning Knives, Hands, Fists, Feet and Bats … What About Shot Guns? … Ban DUI, Illegal Immigrants, They Kill More
THE BIG ASSAULT WEAPONS LIE … Is Obama going to enact new laws that ban knives, hands, feet and blunt objects like bats? What about shotguns? How about Illegal Immigrants?
One needs to look no further than the FBI data for murders in 2011 to understand that President Obama and Democrats are using the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy for their own political gain. They claim its about safety and the protecting of children. Really? This weekend in a ‘Meet the Press’ interview Obama said he was going to enact new gun measures in 2013. Did you know that according to the FBI that more people are murdered annually by knives, shot guns, objects, hands/fists/feet, DUI and by illegal immigrant DUI’s that assault weapons? Where is the hue & cry to ban illegals who commit a 9-11 every year with DUI deaths?
However, if you actually take a look at the murder stats complied by the FBI you will note that hand guns are actually the highest percentage of the cause of murders in the US, not assault rifles. When applying the unknown guns by percentage to hand guns, rifles and shot guns … rifles are responsible for 3.2%, shotguns 3.5% , knives 13.4% and other sharp objects , other weapons 13.1% , and hands/fists/feet 5.7%. That is correct, with all the attention and exploitation by Democrats and the community agitator in Chief Obama, more people are actually killed by shot guns than assault rifles. Especially when you factor in that the category below is all rifles, not just assault rifles. 2.5% more people were killed by one’s hands/fists and feet than by rifles. 11.2% more people were murdered by knives and other piercing objects than rifles. And 10.9% more people were killed by other blunt objects like bats than rifles.
Table 20 – FBI murder stats (see full table and results)
So why is there no talk about legislation to ban knives, other blunt force objects and hands/fists/feet/ when they kill more readily than rifles, hmm? I guess that will be next for Obama to go after. Make no mistake about it America, this is about gun control and weakening the 2nd Amendment, not protecting children.
What about DUI deaths in the United States? In 2010 an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths last year. Far more individuals were killed as a result of DUI than assault weapons yet where is the outcry from Barack Obama and Democrats about drunk driving?
US Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) quoted from a Congressional Report, “Drawing a Line in the Sand” which reveals 25 Americans are killed every day by illegal aliens. The estimate is 12 are murdered and 13 killed in traffic violations, mostly from drunk driving; over 9,000 Americans killed every year.
It’s all about exploiting the Sandy Hook Elementary school murders and the US Constitution, not protecting children. A ban will do nothing We need to look no further than to see the FBI stats to see that states like NY, IL and DC that have harsh gun laws are the highest in murders.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been hospitalized with a blood clot as a result of the concussion she received earlier this month. According to her spokesman, Clinton’s doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam. Hillary Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Sunday night and will be treated with anti-coagulants for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor her condition.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.
Clinton’s doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication.
“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion,” Reines said in a statement. “They will determine if any further action is required.”
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) Says No Fiscal Cliff Deal Tonight … “I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now”
Deal or no deal … it would appear that there is no deal.
As reported at the Washington Post, according to Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) there is no deal as of yet and he would be shocked if there would be tonight as the two sides are further apart than he had hoped. They truly plan on taking this down to the last second. Of course one has to wonder how Congress can be having a fiscal cliff negotiation when none of what they are discussing reduces the US debt. It’s all just about tax increases and punishing the so-called rich.
Asked as he left a meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus whether a deal would be struck today, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) replied: “No, I’d be shocked. I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now, and that the country thought they’d be when negotiations started on Friday.”
Another Obama Lie, Remember When Barack Said He Was Not Going after Guns … Now Obama Wants to Enact New Gun Control Measures in 2013
LION LYING KING … The 2012 President election is proof-positive that there is a sucker born every minute … This is what happens America when you reelect a less than honest President to a second term who has no accountability to “We the People”. You thought this president could care less what the people thought during his first term in office, America, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
In 2008 Barack Obama told America that, “ I am not going to take your guns away … it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.” Any you actually believed him. Now America is going to pay for the ignorance of the uninformed voter.
“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”
That was then and this is now. President Barack Obama during a Sunday interview this morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.
“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”
But he has also called on Congress to move quickly to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines.
Obama on Sunday repeated those calls and said he would meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisles to see action.
“I’ve been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.
Really, Obama has been clear? More like it depends on what BS story he is using to pander for votes. Far be it from Obama to exploit the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in an attempt to harm the Second Amendment using the Newtown, CT murders as the excuse. Just like with the fiscal cliff where none of the discussions have a thing to do with deficit or debt reduction, Obama’s far Left anti-gun restrictions will do a damn thing to protect children. Obama’s own Chicago, Illinois has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, yet they just had their 500th murder this past week, the highest amount since 2008. The Lonely Conservative points out that mum is the word for Obama and Dems when it comes to discussing how the left deinstitutionalized the insane so they’re walking among us, or how criminals don’t normally abide by gun laws.
Ben and Henry Cleary, the two Georgia brothers who have been missing since Wednesday, December 26 have been found safe in Austin, TX. An Amber Alert was issued on Thursday for the missing 9 and 7 year old brothers after they had been abducted by their father, Daniel Cleary. Cleary was supposed to return the boys to their mother on Wednesday; however, never did. 46 year old Daniel Cleary was taken into custody Saturday evening by police. He faces a felony charge of interstate interference with custody.
Police said two young boys from Georgia who were reported missing this week were found safe in Texas on Saturday and their father is in custody and facing charges.
Brothers Ben and Henry Cleary — ages 9 and 7 — were visiting with their father, Daniel Cleary, of Roswell, and were supposed to return home Wednesday. An Amber Alert was issued Thursday.
Roswell Police Lt. James H. McGee said that the 46-year-old Daniel Cleary was taken into custody Saturday evening in Austin, Texas.
“We have recovered the kids,” McGee told The Associated Press. “They were with him and they were OK.”
Just another reason why we love Sheriff Joe Arpaio …
In the wake of the Sandy Hill Elementary School mass murder shooting in Newtown, CT, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to put armed volunteer posse members near schools. The volunteer posse will not be in the schools, but will instead patrol around the perimeters. Instead of politicizing the actions of a mad man in Connecticut and the death of 26 individuals at the Newtown school Arpaio is more interested in protecting the children. , When asked what he thought the reaction would be to his plan, Sheriff Joe stated, ”It doesn’t matter what the reaction is. My main objective is to protect the public and do what we can to detour any of the massacres that have been happening around the country.”
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to start putting armed members of his volunteer posse near schools in the wake of the mass shooting in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
Arpaio doesn’t plan to put posse members inside schools but will have them posted around the perimeters.
“Why not utilize the posse into patrolling schools in our areas?” Arpaio asks.
With what he thinks is no reason not to, he’ll start this new idea within the next week.
The specific schools are not yet known but volunteers will be spread throughout Arpaio’s jurisdiction and he has identified certain areas.
The posse members are qualified for the job, according to Arpaio.
“Our posses are well trained with over 100 hours of how to use weapons [and] they have authority under the elected sheriff,” Arpaio said. “I feel they’ll be a great asset to schools around our area.”
An Obama Happy New Year … Fiscal Cliff or Not Americans Face $1 Trillion Obamacare Tax Hike Hitting on January 1, 2013
Taxation without any responsible representation … The Obama taxes!!!
America, get ready for the tax hikes on everyone that you voted in when Barack Obama won reelection. Thanks to that misguided and uninformed election Americans now face a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike beginning January 1, 2013 … Happy New Year. So you thought that by participating in Obama’s class warfare against the so called rich would not effect you, eh? Think again … it all trickles down. All these Obamacare taxes and Obamacare still does nothing what it originally claimed to do.
$ 1 Trillion !!!
On January 1, regardless of the outcome of fiscal cliff negotiations, Americans will be hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike.
Obamacare contains twenty new or higher taxes. Five of the taxes hit for the first time on January 1. In total, Americans face a net $1 trillion tax hike for the years 2013-2022, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
The five major Obamacare taxes taking effect on January 1 are as follows: (full pdf doc can be read HERE)
- The Obamacare Medical Device Tax - Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales – even if the company does not earn a profit in a given year. In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will increase the cost of your health care – making everything from pacemakers to artificial hips more expensive. The Patriot Perspective discusses exactly what this means. It is insane to make any industry pay a tax on their gross sales, versus net.
- The Obamacare Flex Account Tax
- The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income
- The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions
- The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike
