November 13, 2012

We’ve been hearing about the “fiscal cliff” that team Obama is leading the United States over. That is something he’s been eagerly awaiting and working towards for the last four years. If there is any doubt in the minds of Americans exactly what Mr. Obama is and what his plan for America is here is a list of the folks he will be meeting with to discuss, behind closed doors, on how to best take America over this cliff and how to finally bring about the Socialism he longs for.  Notice there aren’t any folks from the Congress among the group deciding how to take America over the financial cliff.  Again, if you have any doubt take a look at this list and decide for yourselves  …

    All of those people our president is consulting with about over the cliff can go over the cliff

    I read this article you wrote and I note that you said, “Notice there aren’t any folks from the congress among the group deciding to take America over the financial cliff.”

    Just after that, you cite another article which says in part – – -“—and ahead of talks on Friday with top Democratic and Republican congressional leaders – – -”

    So I guess the president is meeting with everyone including top Democratic and Republican conghressional leaders after all, right?

    How convenient to miss so obvious a point!

    I wonder why anyone might forget to include this little detail?

      For someone who claims to pay attention to detail you surely missed again the members of the Congress won’t be among those groups. How convenient for you to pick out something not there and miss the entire point of the piece. Take a nap John.
