The LuLac Edition #1387, Nov. 28th, 2010



I get a kick out of many people on the national morning talk shows saying how the President needs to form a bi partisan relationship with the Republican party after their win in this year’s elections. They say the President needs to compromise on tax cuts and other issues. How can he compromise with a party that voted no to his stimulus package, voted no for extending unemployment benefits and voted no against Health Insurance Reform?
How can he work in a bi partisan fashion with a Senate Minority Leader (Mitch McConnell) who said his main objective was the Obama not get a second term?How can he work in a bi partisan fashion when a Republican Senator on “Meet the Press” (John Kyl) could not articulate why he was going to oppose the SMART Treaty? A treaty by the way that pledges to end atomic weaponry on a comprehensive basis. How can a President work with these people? If he is to survive the next two years, this President has to draw the line in the sand and explain just how ridiculous these guys are in their political stances.


A lot of the failure of the Obama administration lies in the fact that he and his people have yet to trumpet some of the good things they have legislatively accomplished. Despite my better judgement, I watch Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” program. Trump describes his program, his clothing line, his golf courses, his hotels, anything he is associated with as “exciting”, “fantastic”, “incredible”, “world class” “important” and “best ever” words and phrases. They are called adjectives. Maybe this President should try uses words like that. His recent overseas trip is an example. The President should have pointed out that it will be a long time before the foreign markets will trust our judgement and word again on anything. Instead the White House left the message control to the media outlets that pointed to the shortcomings instead of what this thing was intended to. On the tax cuts, the first thing the Stimulus program did was cut every working Americans taxes. Each worker received a little boost in their bi weekly paycheck. That expires on Jan. 1, 2011. That was a tax cut but because it came in small increments, no one noticed. While George W Bush was scoring big cuts for the wealthy, each American got about $600.00 and a letter saying so from the President. This President has to get on message, stand for something passionately and then don’t back down. If he doesn’t do these things, a busted lip will be the least of his problems.

Good anology with Trump. The Dems have accomplished things for the middle class but they don't realize how close we came to castrophe. Oh well, at least it tells us who the true patriots are.

There is such a major philosophical difference between how the parties approach solutions that to compromise would serve nothing. The best we can hope for is stand-off and I'm OK with that - until we get someone who makes sense and has guts.

Oh, the $600 that I later pay TAX on? Big whoop.

All the president needs is a larger soap box so other political allies can stand along with him and that way have a louder voice on accomplishments.

Are we witnessing Obama's directive 10-289...Is it time to enslave the middle classes via increased dependency on the government?

"Larger Soapbox"? He's the POTUS for God's sake...allies? LOUDER voices? Accomplishments? riiiiight.

I am getting sick and tired of people who don't contribute anything to society talking the loudest!

Let's start listening to fiscally responsible and constitutionally responsible people.

How can Obama cut taxes for 98% of Americans when 47% of Americans don't pay any taxes? I'll tell you how he did that. He sent out $250 checks. You see, in the wonderful world of Democrats, when the government takes money from a producer .. or borrows money from the Chinese ... and gives that money to a middle or low income American ... that's a "tax cut." Amazing how that happens, isn't it?

The Tax Foundation has data from the IRS that clearly debunks the class warfare rhetoric from liberals that the "rich" are not paying their fair share
of taxes. The top 1 percent is comprised of just 1.4 million taxpayers and they pay a larger share of the income tax burden now than the bottom 134 million
taxpayers combined.
