President Obama cuts a deal......

Updated on December 11, 2012

The Voters are Watching

How will the GOP answer to the fiscal conservative Tea Party voters?
How will the GOP answer to the fiscal conservative Tea Party voters?

How will you spin this situation in 2012?

Today, 2011, President Obama, did something that he didn't want to do, but he did it for the millions of middle-class Americans, those that the GOP would simply throw under their bus if they didn't get what they wanted for the "rich". The GOP held Americans hostage to make gains for the wealthy.

President Obama cut a deal, yes he did, he did it for you. Will you see that? Probably not. Instead you and others will see him as weak for allowing the Republicans to get their tax cuts for the "rich".

President Obama did not see this as a political dilema, he saw it as a moral issue. And when it comes to moral issues, he can always be counted on to do the moral thing, can the GOP?

So, today and up until the 2012 election, the GOP and the Democrats alike will call him "wimpy and wussy" and say that he "fold's under pressure". But what Democrats fail to remember is how Bill Clinton (the Democratic savior) worked with Republicans after the 1994 defeat of Democrats and created a stronger America.

Before casting judgement remember this:

  1. He extended tax cuts for the middle class so you don't get a $2,000 increase in taxes.
  2. He renewed unemployment benefits so you can continue to support your family while you look for work.
  3. He allowed for a one-year deduction in Social Security taxes.
  4. He extended tax breaks for small business.

Today, the GOP in one "big" decision, decided that it was worth adding millions of dollars to the deficit, to give the rich a tax break and even though it's good for the country, they slapped the Tea Party voter in the face by allowing Democrats to extend unemployment benefits.


So, it's safe to say, today, after all the hate and fear mongering of the Tea Party, they didn't change a thing in Washington. Business as usual.

HAS IT BEEN A YEAR ALREADY?

It's 2012 and the President is back in the same spot. Fighting the GOP for what is right for the American people. The American people have got to come together to support the president on this issue. Will you?

    No thank you, I have heard so much bitching about Obama that I was wondering if anyone else felt the same way I did. If he only serves one term, then I will be one American that is greatful for what he's done. I just read an article from some moron who says he can't remember one thing that Obama has done that he promised on the campaign trail. If he were in front of me I think I would have slapped him. Health Care Reform, the dreaded "Obama Care". These nut jobs have been screaming about it at top of their lungs and he says he can't remember one thing. Ugggggh. Feel much better now that I vented.

    Thank you, Abecedarian! Just listened to the President's press conference and was so impressed by this man that so many loathe and disrespect. He is good and honorable and cuts to the chase. He knows that he is speaking for the millions who don't have the luxury of playing games. He is doing his job and protecting those who don't have the money to fight the shameful game of politics. He has not compromised his principles one bit! He is there for the unemployed and the middle class! He knows that giving the rich and ultra rich a gift is ridiculous, but he had no choice!
