Later Than We Think

The graphic below lifted from Silverfiddle's must-read essay: "A Deficit of Leadership":

Be sure to read Silverfiddle's essay.

Meanwhile, last night,

Obama abruptly departed the debt talks. Some in the GOP claim that he stormed out of the meeting, others say he merely left the room.

Where did he go?

In any case, Obama apparently uttered the following statement in yesterday's debt talks:
"I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I won't yield on this."
This morning, the Huffington Post ran the photo below in the masthead with the headline "Gloves Come Off":

HERE is the conclusion of the article in the Huffington Post:
Before Obama left the meeting, he gave lawmakers a directive. By Friday, the president said, the people in the room needed to have figured out what path they were going to pursue so that they could start hammering out the details.
As this comment over at Weasel Zippers points out:
Obama talks nice to Hamas.
Obama talks nice to Hezbollah.
Obama talks nice to the Taliban.
Obama talks nice to Iran.
Obama talks nice to Syria.
Obama talks nice to every third world Islamic s@#t hole.
Obama walks out on Bibi.
Obama walks out on Cantor.
Obama's version of leadership in a nutshell.


  1. .

    All the people's government of USA has to do is raise taxes on the rich and wealthy, stop corporate welfare and bring our troops home from the wars in Iraq/Afghanistan.

    Or do you enjoy paying Paris Hilton's taxes for her?

    Disagree with me? Fine. Refer to my post as crap, and deletion results.

  4. Ema,
    You've made those points multiple times. Therefore, if you make those points again (copy and paste?), I will delete your comments because they have become spam, especially that part about Paris Hilton.

  5. Cut spending, increase spending, cut taxes, raise taxes.....

    Same old tired song and dance kids.

    So long as the Federal Reserve bank has the printing press and carte blanch authority to print and lend to anyone we are screwed.

    All the talk of spending cuts, tax cuts, increasing spending, raising taxes, etc. is nothing more than a distraction from the real culprit which is a fiat currency.

  6. Let the little brat take his bat and ball and go home. He has done nothing to aid in these negotiations. The boy is useless.

  8. How about the 50% of those who pay nada kick in a little bit. After all they are the ones who receive the most government services.
    Unfortunately this president has no idea how to prioritize.All he knows is how to make speeches,spend money,vacation,party and blame everyone else. Oh and storms out of a room like a pouty 5 year old when he doesn't get his way

  9. Thanks for the linkage, AOW! I really appreciate it.

    The left is really angry right now and they are impervious to facts and logic.

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to msnbc talking points or bush hatred or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-capitalist sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

    In the interest of bi-partisan comity (and a perhaps futile effort at pushing back the frontiers of liberal ignorance), I offer this link:


    I suggest that the liberals who are screaming "raise taxes on the rich!" go use the data in the link to crunch some numbers and get back to us.

    The top 10% ($113K/year and up) paid a total of $721 billion in 2008. So double that and you get another $721 billion (if they are stupid enough to stand still and allow Obama to confiscate that much).

    We still need another trillion to close the gap. Where do you get that from?

  10. If you got it ... spend it. If you don't got it ... spend it too.

  11. He sends the Dali Lama out the back door with the trash...

    With each passing day I grow to despise him more.

    Right Truth

  12. That is the nice thing about not raising the debt ceiling they will only be able to spend what they have.

  13. Not only that, he BOWS to the foreign leaders, and does a different kind of squat in our direction.

  14. "That is the nice thing about not raising the debt ceiling they will only be able to spend what they have."

    BFD. Other countries can continue spending like drunken sailors and continue getting IMF and World Bank loans with freshly printed fiat currency via the Federal Reserve.

    Seriously...It's astounding how many people simply do not understand this.

    Instead we go round and round and round and round with these ridiculous arguments about cutting taxes, raising taxes, cutting spending, raising spending.....

    You've got to stop this at the source. It's as simple as that.
