Obama On Extending Tax Cuts - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

In a few minutes - and only a few minutes late - our leader will opine on the topic du jour. While Reid's voice shuddered risk-takers, and Boehner's was perfectly pitched to get the algos juices flowing - we wonder what effect Obama's dulcet tones will have on a now-happy equity market, and if the second-term president is once again merely a catalyst to sell.

The press is clapping because off-screen the caterers just rolled out the lunch buffet carts.

Keep talking, my shorts thank you.  People still think these guys are "elected".  The banks and financial houses thank you.

You'd be asleep too if you had to listen to the word "balanced" 80,000 times.

I cannot carry a loaded firearm until I no longer hear the phrase "fiscal cliff" tossed around so jubilantly for the plebes.

"Forward!" he cried from the rear,
and the front rank died.

Congress listened tyo the American people? When did that shit happen? And where is your budget Mr. Assclown? This crap is so old.

Cashed out 25% of my portfolio yesterday, more to come later this week.

Time to hunker down, right after having a good holiday with the kids.

No wonder they had to hit gold this AM.  Cripes.  This man has no plans to stop spending at all.

<- I never thought Obama would reduce the deficit.

<- Obama is trying to reduce the deficit.

The day they sign the stop middle class taxes from going up bill, is the day that the ES breaks to new highs for the year.

WTF happened to Simpson Bowles?  

Get back in the White House and start making phone calls, meet senators and congressmen, ... and you're pushing hashtags??!!!

If congress won't come over to the Oval Office, get your ass over to Capitol Hill, knock on doors, say "W'sup?, Got a minute?" Get to work, get to work, get to work.

Work? Are you serious?

NONE of this is real. It is nothing more than an orchestrated con-game, designed to anger you.

These people decide NOTHING. They do exactly what they're told, then have to rationalize it on TV.

Obama on TV tells you that the talks have stalled.  He cannot get the Republicans to go along with his plan.

Did he say something or was he swallowing Warren Buffets sperm full blown.

I can't stand that blathering pole smoker.  When the whole house collapses, I hope to watch her starring in her first porn movie.  She'll do it to make rent.

It makes me wonder how many media figures with million dollar salaries have a cabin upstate and a couple rolls of gold eagles.

Looks like Becky has been lurking around here. We both got a down arrow.

Becky, you know you want to let your inner porn star out. Show us what you got!!

Those aren't mutually exclusive, BTW.

You'd think they'd be on the increase since they brew their own now at the WH.

I finally gave myself a tax cut and quit working for the Ponzi. I don't need you Barry...........

I love the huge fucking debate to resolve like 10% of the deficit. Fucking assholes all of them. Especially the chimps on CNBC - Rise above. The breath in that place stinks so bad of cock no one can think

Quinvarius's picture

At least his only stated goal now is a tax cut for the middle class.  Seems like he folded on pretty much everything except the one thing the Republicans already agreed on.

Waterfallsparkles's picture

How about cutting spending instead of raising Taxes.

Start with Obama phones.

Raymond K Hessel's picture

And then cut defence, education, EPA, and the interior, because FUCK YOU that's why!!

Even better: they could stop providing free sugar and half-and-half at the Capitol's coffee urn.  That'll help loads.

Those guys all make good money--they can buy their own coffee.  That's gotta be like hundreds of dollars a year!

Man, with that score at the end when he was leaving - it even SOUNDS like a circus!


Next thing you know we'll see the introduction of the 2013 Bringing Rations and Essential Ameneties to the Downtrodden Act...

You missed the part where all of the people on the screen got out of the same clown car.

 Did anyone at all, get any new or definitive information from that fiscal cliff infomercial?  XAU is down $27! WTF?

Dre4dwolf's picture

I have the solution, we can tax other countries instead of our own citizens.

We have big space cannons, we can enforce Taxes on any country we want, I mean if the world is gona hate us forever, might as well give them a reason to, am I right?
