It seems that the new “Normal” in the age of Obama consists not only of chronically high Unemployment, +$1 Trillion annual deficits, and criticism of even his cabinet members being labeled out-of-bounds, but now will also include the omnipresent fear of the next Fiscal Cliff:
- From SLATE.com: “The Next Fiscal Cliff: Don’t celebrate yet—the next budget crisis is just two months away.”
- From the Detroit Free Press: “Obama signs fiscal cliff bill, attention turns to next crisis.”
- From USNews.com: “Get Ready for the Next Fiscal Cliff“
Wait a sec: we can’t even get through 2 days after the 1st “Fiscal Cliff” is allegedly settled, and the Left is already signalling that they’re just getting warmed up?
And yet logically, shouldn’t all the Lefties, and certainly President Obama, be …happy right now? Contented, even? Just a little?
I mean, hasn’t Obama been bleating (for what feels like forever) about the “rich paying their fair share”? And wasn’t that, literally, played on a loop by his buddies on CNN, MSNBC, etc.,..? Well, the “rich” just got tagged with a pretty decent fairness-modifier. Why aren’t Barack-&-Company doing cartwheels in-and-out of the Rose Garden right now? Shouldn’t they now be sorta satisfied?
Ha-ha-ha!!! Sorry, sorry, …I crack myself up…
“The deal we are about to strike will raise taxes on the rich. But, the fiscal imbalances we face remain unsatisfactorily large. So, I will ask for more tax increases on the rich later“
Nope, this will NEVER end. He and his fellow travelers on the Left can never be satisfied with ANY concessions, because concessions aren’t what the want. They want the Right totally defeated, our Constitution in tatters and our future to resemble some unholy marriage of Brave New World meets 1984.
The truly sad thing is: you have to be a special kind of stupid not to see through this whole charade. Heck, my 11-year old could figure out that you can’t spend what you don’t have, forever. It’s been stated so often I fear it’s almost clichéd by now, but taxing the rich won’t even amount to a band-aid on the damage Obama has inflicted on us in only 4 years.
Yet, the Statists agitate for ever-more largess from the State, for the State, and the idiocy churns on.
But YOU voted for him, boys ‘n girls! And now we have our very own version of “We have always been at war with Eastasia“ with “America-vs.-Fiscal Cliff 2.0“, or whatever version subsequently rolls off the White House assembly-line floor.
So, since the next battle will commence with the imminent Debt Ceiling debates, I’ll leave you with yet another illustration of just how dumb THAT entire discussion even is.
“Fiscal Cliff mortuus est; vivat Fiscal Cliff!!”
