Obama To Assign Fault; Propose Plan D, Different From Last Friday's Plan C - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

We would expect the ingredients of the speech to be a pinch of self-denigration mixed with 6 fluid ounces of 'millionaires-and-billionaires', and a quart of "it's the other guys' fault." This coming from the man who precisely a week ago announced he would propose a "scaled down" plan, which today turned out was a complete lie: some leadership. Nevertheless. it will be interesting to see how his 'new' plan, same as the 'old' plan, is different from the 'new new' plan-to-come as he pushes the Senate to propose a 'new new new' deal that will really be a 'skinny irrelevant' deal - no doubt heralded by all asunder as a 'grand new' deal. Though it appears we should have no fear as McConnell and Reid are working on it and McConnell is "hopeful and optimistic." Farce!


For those who missed it, here is the WSJ rundown:

President Barack Obama said "the hour for immediate action is here" on a deal to avert the fiscal cliff. The president said he remains "optimistic" that an agreement can be reached in Congress before a looming year-end deadline to avoid tax increases and spending cuts.


If Congress can't reach a deal, the president said Congress should allow a vote on a basic package that would preserve tax cuts for middle-class Americans while extending unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and working toward a foundation for a broader deal. Senate leaders said they hope to reach a compromise that could be presented to lawmakers by Sunday, little more than 24 hours before the deadline.

 'Obama To Assign Fault'. 

His entire presidency, summed up in one short phrase...someone put that on the teleprompter please!

It was the Democrats who insisted on an expiration date for the Bush tax cuts. Place the blame where it is due.

Wake me up when there's plan O.

OOh yeah! Our political leaders are going to save us from the problem they created...the problem they developed....the problem that is their excuse why we need them as our employees.

The fact that this problem wasn't solved a year ago should embarrass all of them into resigning. The fact that this problem wasn't solved a year ago should make the employer, we the people, give all these fucktards their pinkslips.

Article I, Section 7 states that all revenue bills shall originate in the House of Representatives but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on any other bills. What a fucking idiot. Constitution, what is that?

Obama left his teleprompter in Hawaii...this is what happens when a "constitutional law professor" tries to wing it on his own, after having had all the test answers given to him, for his entire life.

Ah well, lets sing some more Christmas Carols...Over the cliff & through the ditch...to grandmothers house we go, the horses are blind, but I don't mind, cuz we got the big O...Ohhh!

He votes "present" again by treating us to another ambiguous, vague lecture without details or Q&A. Quite a leader.

I call him the Velvet Hammer.

I really respect that fascist.

I wouldn't mess with that Chicago-style gangster.

Actually, "Second verse, same as the first." originally came from Herman's Hermits in "I'm Henery the Eighth, I am".  But yes, I agree. :-)

What has anyone learned from the past when it comes to the these Fed and Government deadlines? They arrive, and miraculously the goal post is moved to in order to reward those that have frontrun the inside wink and nod of Ben's I got your back moment....Therefore, GOT MONDAY CALLS??? a complete no-brainer, take candy from a baby, risk on trade (even IF they have no deal)!

It was only his fault that he didn't go to Baghdad. Give him a break, he's very old and not well.

Hillary Clinton Admits US and Al-Qaeda On Same Side in Syria


Clinton Announces al-Qaeda as Legitimate Government of Libya


There's even vid of her admitting it.

Put this with it - from a few days ago:


SYRIAN GIRL - Obama Directly BACKING AL-Qaeda

Could it be any more clear that Obama Sin-laden is the defacto head of Al-Qaeda in Syria? (FSA - Free Syrian Army) He's politically recognized them and he's now knowingly supporting their forming an acting as the Al-Qaeda-based Govt of the 'newfree' Syria, and he's arming and funding them. So we have a nuclear power actively using and backing Al-Qaeda proxies to achieve USSA state policy, formulated by Hillary Clinton and the CFR.


Your new Al-Qaeda allies, FSA at their best (gruesome video - you were warned):



At least Syria's real Army knows what to do with Barry's-boys.

The Pentagon, Joint Chiefs, CIA and pathetic newsmedia are cowards and traitors.  Al Qeada is in Egypt, Libya and trying to get Syria.  Seal Team 6 was set up and no one says shit about any of it.  The Clintons are up to their fat necks in it as well.

I feel as much sympathy for GW Bush as he did when invading Iraq, among other things.

A pity that old bastard won't feel but a fraction of the pain that he inflicted on others.

GW Bush makes me wish I believed in hell....because if there was one, he'd be in it. 

Freddie's picture

Poppy or GW?  Poppy's crew tried to whack Reagan.   We have had NWO since Poppy.  Bush, Clinton Bush, Hussein.  All stooges for the NWO and Mena/Latin drug cartels.    I was totally convinced when the Bush clan "became" best buddies with the Clinton.  Poppy was like the sober WASP CIA daddy that Bill never had.

The Bush's were great can kickers. Why do you think they got contracts.
