How President Obama Lost His Shirt to John Boehner

The House, under the leadership of Speaker John Boehner, has precipitated a postponement in the debt ceiling fight until May. This represents a strategic choice by Boehner to make the Sequester fight, not the debt ceiling fight, the next major engagement. Much of the mainstream media now is accusing Congress of “kicking the can down the road.” They are missing the strategic implications.

In retrospect, at the Battle at Fiscal Cliff, Boehner took President Obama to the cleaners. He did it suavely, without histrionics. While Obama churlishly, and in a politically amateurish manner, about having forced the Republicans to raise tax rates on “the wealthiest Americans” Boehner, quietly, was pocketing his winnings.

Dazzled by Obama’s Ozymandias-scale sneer most liberals failed to notice that Boehner quietly made 99% of the Bush tax cuts permanent. As Boehner himself dryly observed, in an editorial board member Steve Moore, “”Who would have ever guessed that we could make 99% of the Bush tax cuts permanent? When we had a Republican House and Senate and a Republican in the White House, we couldn’t get that. And so, not bad.’”

There is way more of a great read at the link below!

    Leaving the taxcuts out of it , he forced Obama's hand as cuts now have to be made from Obama's social programs which Obama was positive would not happen.

    From reading this article, I feel much better than before. It is my prayer that John Boehner leads the nation in impeaching Obama for the many crimes against this nation as we all know. Victory is within our grasp...

    If so, Obama outsmarted himself. With this sequester fight looming, he's in the soup and he knows it.

    Controlling the goverment will be going to the democratic house of the constitution called the house of representative to start any bill.

    All state that voted against President Hussein plus 9 more state aprovall will pass with the republican.

    It's great that they got some of the tax cuts made permanent, but if Republicans would have stood their ground Obama and the Democrats would have caved and made all of the Bush tax cuts permanent. Democrats can talk all they want about the Republican congress, but when it comes down to it the President is held responsible for what happens in Washington. The Democrats have been blaming Bush for the economy going in the tank towards the end of his 2nd term. They never mention that Democrats were in control of the House and Senate the last two years when things went south.

    First if u disagrea with a muslim budget, regulatory, negotiations tacktic, ghe most professional way to some it up in a twitter phraze, it would be to simply respectfully call bim by his middle name. "President Hussein" with a E

    Well to close my point, president hussein said he was running for a change, and was decieved by the credit card company at the beggining of his presidency, were his wirthless spending of stimulous money rewarding curruption he nows called TARP were he thinks its a umbrella policy paying every thing that needs really attention. He use fema contridution to take advantage of people by charging intrest rates upove the fed reserve rate, and then lies go people that fema is helping them being a mortgage bank, taking bussiness away from the banking industry. The he mix another policy stealing jobs all under his umbrella policy of tarp.

    I am not happy with Boehner ....
    But I don't want his job either.
    Who would want his piss ass nasty,put in the middle job.
    Not me..
    If he pulled this off ...kudos for him.
    The GOP has gone so far left appeasing this administration it ain't funny.
    So if they don't start playing the same progressive games and start learning they to can make a CHANGE, and move back right they will not be mentioned or thought about when the people stand up and take control.
    It is up to them!

    The left is lucky that Boehner is Speaker of the House and not a real conservative. If that was the case Obama wouldn't have gotten anything passed and would have already been facing impeachment.

    I don't get boners. Of course you probably do whenever Obama shows up on TV. I'll bet it's hilarious with you trying to deal with that and listen to Obama's BS. Or, maybe that's works really well for you being single and all!!

    What's funny, though, is that you don't realize you're just a mouthpiece for Obama and his rich friends. LOL

    I don't block unless someone is really nasty. Ignorance and/or stupidity don't qualify.

    And the fact that you're sorry doesn't mean a damn thing to me. I certainly didn't ask you for a character reference. I already knew you are a sorry lib.
