Boehner Brings The Reality Back - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

As Plan B (or Plan ZZ) is back on the table, markets (in their infinitely efficient wisdom) have retraced all of the Obama spike from last night. GOP's Boehner takes the stand to explain Plan B, we presume, at 10ET. Live webcast here (calls or puts today?)

Can someone throw their fucking shoe at him, preferably full of fresh piss and a few stones!

For the life of me, I don't know why they didn't just try to engineer this 'Fiscal Cliff' dropoff [into presumably oblivion] to occur precisely at the hour of the Winter Solstice on December 21st...


At least then it might have some entertainment value... It'd be like... "Here we go people!... Wheeeeeee!"

but isnt it great that everybody gets a chance to talk...i find it so much more sincere when they let the little congress people speak...

and 1 more thing...i am all for plan b...the abortion pill makes the most sense...

Can somebody please tell the people what Bernanke and Dimon have told Congress to do so we can get this dog & pony show over with?

Reminds me of Kerry. "My plan... " and "My plan this" crap. I feel like puking.

No formal banruptcy for the US ever.

The US will just print, they won't declare bankruptcy. They will imply it with a worthless currency.

That's Bubble Bernanke and the Fed's solution. It's in progress right now.

I used to think without doubt that Pelosi was the most disgusting house speaker we ever had.  Now sometimes I wonder.  They all play for the same team.

Boehner's re-election for speaker is on Jan 3rd. If he gives to much to Obama he'll be voted out of his speakership. A week or two long cliff dive into january would not surprise me.

All this is not too bad for stocks compared to PMs. But the big winner is still Europe where the currency is getting stronger and stronger. Shopping in Paris is getting expensive for the poor Americans.

IridiumRebel's picture

That sucks too cuz so many Americans just pony up a 1800 round trip plane ticket to buy French crap that they could get here. Save the money and go to Montreal.

No worry, Moodys, Fitch and S&P will all approve any spending cut. Even if it's a joke.

All three credit rating agencies switched from rating garbage debt as triple A to the next sham of rating the largest irresponsible country as fiscally responsible.

The democrats and republicans will remove the debt limit and will spend like drunken sailors without any way of flagging it.

"Negotiating" with yourself. Is that what they call it these days?

I'll ponder the comments while I eat my reheated Big Mac on Christmas Day.  Granted, I'll have to scrape out the spit from the disgruntled teenaged flipper, they usually hide it under the pickles.

US Navy pulls two aircraft carriers from Syria shores
Published: 18 December, 2012, 00:56
Two aircraft carriers stationed off the Syrian coast were sent back to the US this week in a move that the Obama administration thought would ease tensions, but angered Turkish officials who hoped for significant US military presence in the region.
The USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier and the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group and its 2,500 marines were recalled after being stationed on the Syrian coast, allegedly in preparation of potential military invasion.


… and the same day ... i.e. today ... a bit to the north …

The Russian Navy has sent five ships to the Mediterranean Sea to replace the region’s existing fleet. The move comes after the foreign ministry said it may call for the evacuation of Russian citizens in Syria if the government in Damascus falls.
­Three warships and two support ships of the Russian Baltic Fleet are set to join the Russian naval forces in the Mediterranean.
The Neustrashimyy-class frigate Yaroslav Mudri and landing ships Kaliningrad and Aleksandr Shabalin, accompanied by a towboat and a tanker ship, have set sail from their base in Baltiysk, the defense ministry announced on Tuesday. Their mission includes exercises in air defense, anti-ship warfare and anti-submarine warfare, the Navy statement said.


Ok, maybe peace is a meaningless word.

But something changed here.

How much money is Soros going to make when Obama rejects plan B?  All hedge funds all in for Santa rally.   In Obama's favor to go over cliff and blame Republicans, make Soros a ton of $$.
