As Fiscal Cliff and Tax Increases Nears for ALL Americans, Obama Tells Congress to “Cool Off, Drink some Egg Nog, Sing some Carols” & Eat Christmas Cookies, As Obama Vacations in Hawaii
BARACK OBAMA: LEADING FROM BRHIND … LET THEM EAT CHRISTMAS COOKIES.
The United States and all Americans are on the verge of the fiscal cliff and Obama heads off to vacation in Hawaii as he tells all to let them Eat Christmas Cookies. What leadership from our president. Thanks America, you reelected him. There is a reason why Obama is called the Vacationer in Chief. All Americans are facing a tax increase come January 1, 2013 and Obama goes on vacation instead of hammering out a deal. UNREAL. Just this past week, the thin skinned president got defense about a question regarding mass murder violence during his first term. Obama stated, “I don’t think I’ve been on vacation.” It appears that is exactly just where you have been. How can any president just head off on vacation after literally doing nothing since election day to end the fiscal cliff crisis.
Let them eat Christmas Cookies
President Barack Obama delivered an unexpected update on the status of negotiations to avert the year-end fiscal cliff, saying he was still optimistic that a “comprehensive” deal could get done before a deadline in 10 days.
“I want next year to be a year of strong economic growth. … Call me a hopeless optimist, but I still think we can get this done,” Obama said.
Obama said he hoped that the coming holiday break would give all parties in the fiscal cliff debate some “perspective,” telling members of Congress to “cool off, drink some egg nog, sing some carols” and eat Christmas cookies. Obama and his family will leave for Hawaii at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
Obviously Barack Obama is not concerned that 100% of Americans, including the middle class, are about to have their taxes increased. Hell, as it is Americans will face tax increases in 2013 thanks to Obamacare. In 2011 Obama postponed his vacation in Hawaii with his family while the payroll tax vote was in limbo. Are you kidding me? Funny how he could give a $hit now that he has been reelected. The fiscal cliff is a bit bigger than the payroll tax, yet Obama has no issue taking a vacation like the Absentee President he is. My what a difference a year and a reelection makes.
Obama told leaders it would be unacceptable if House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) adjourned for Christmas next week without extending a 2-percentage point reduction of the payroll tax.
A White House official disputed the notion that Obama had altered his vacation plans because of Romney’s criticism.
The official noted that Obama had already threatened to spend Christmas with Republicans in Washington if Congress failed to take action on payroll taxes.
“We’re going to keep pushing Congress to make this happen,” Obama said Friday. “Now is not the time to slam the brakes on the recovery. Right now, it’s time to step on the gas. We need to get this done. And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves. Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving, and we can all spend Christmas here together.”

The Republicans need to tell Obama that they will remove all funding from every program not required to meet national security,veterans benifits and social security benifits.
Then they need to Call a press conference and announce to the people what they are doing and why. They need to forcefully tell the American people that Obama and Ried a derlect in their constitutional duties to the people.
Our socialiast idiot in cheif thinks you can get the country back on track economically by taxing the producers and spending every dollar he can get his hands on.
The Republicans need to force his hand. Tell him that they will shut down the government and defund every program except the military,veterans benifits and social security. Then get on the TV and tell the people why they are doing it.
LOL it’s all getting a bit repetitive boys the criticism every time our Leader takes a well earned vacation with his family.
Happy holidays, don’t let your grapes go sour
SM: Well earned? What was well earned? The House, Senate, nor Obama should have been able to go on vacation without doing the work of the People. For months they have said that dealing with the “fiscal cliff” was paramount. It has to be done. That was until it got in the way of their vacations.
Spare me, Obama is a lazy leader who is hell bent on destroying this country with the aid of a clueless. selfish and envious electorate.
Obama has done nothing to deserve this vacation. Sorry, I do not include winning an election by lying to the American people a commendable thing.
Like the previous Medicare “cliff,” a sham to deflect from the real truths. The decisions have already been made. Fodder for TV pundits, increase in viewership, instill greater divisivness in “We the people,” deflect from the real motives.
Not buying any of it. Come Jan 1, chest thumping by both sides, “aren’t we grand.”
Cliff jumping, an activity based on an ulterior motive.
“We all fall down”
