I’m willing to compromise…

…but I will not sign any legislation that does not raise taxes on the rich.  That is the President’s position as affirmed today by his press secretary, Jay Carney.

So here is my question to you.

On what is the President willing to compromise?

    “I’m willing to compromise but I won’t compromise.” ? Our president is a real piece of work. ?Everything that comes out of his mouth is 100% pure BS… no fillers at all!

    Four more years of moaning and groaning. Probably followed by another eight, as the message from the Conservative Right is unlikely to change.

      So you think it will take at least 12 years to undo the ravages that ?bamacare and other policies wreak upon the U.S.
      I think you are an optimist.? The moaning and groaning will continue for a generation or more.

    It goes without saying, that massive cuts need to happen first. But, Conservatives should say they will accept higher taxes on the “rich”, but only after all the loopholes are closed. Governor Romney was correct, this is where the inequities are.?

    Compromise to Obama and the Dems means: The Pubs give up their demands and the Dems will accept. Reluctantly. And, the Pubs will have to kick-in something more to get the Dems to accept.
    Something is going to unravel here.
    We are all going to get new and greater taxes. The Dems have to be looking at the French 75% hungrily as the tax rate for all earners. But, something else has to give, there is going to be some great announcement. They want more money than they can possibly squeeze out of the rich. The plotters in the WH are going to devise a tax that is going to effect earners. I just have this uneasy feeling
    Don’t worry about the wealthy Conservatives. They will be insulated from the coming changes. After all, they all go to the same exclusive clubs.

    We all know the house of cards will collapse.? Hubby and I were talking about what the GOP can or should do.? We believe they should call a press conference and explain what the President wants, how they believe it will negativelly impact recovery then? announce, that while they will not vote for it, they will not vote against it and abstain.????They should do this with every pice of major legislation.?

    There has to be a way to call Barry’s bluff.? Tax increases on the so-caled rich amount to some $82B/year?I think?? We just had the October spending report and the deficit increased $120 billion in October alone.??

    Here’s a deal Mr. Preezy:? the tax increases FOR spending cuts as to negate any further incursion of debt.? Cuts to the tune of $1.2-3T per year so that N + $82b = $0 increase?.? ?He wants to cut $4t over 10 years through some hocus-pocus math that Tim Geithner can’t even keep straight…how about NOW?

    The conservative right will always be the same because we have principles and values that we believe. The Liberal(democrat) left do not. It is that simple why we will not and should not cave.?

    let’s be perfectly clear–there is a fundamental misunderstanding here.? there is no discussion on ‘compromise’.? the discussion is about ‘com promise’.??? a com promise is completely different.? o com promises everything to everyone every day.? it’s the vacillating accent and odd inflection that confuse o’s listeners and minions. . .they have not ‘progressed’ far enough to appreciate the ‘subtlety’.

    My sense is that we’re supposed to infer that the “compromise” would be his willingness to move on tax increases on the so-called middle class which we’re supposed to believe that Treasodent Demogoguema is against when it’s likely they’re already scripted in his own proverbial handwriting- but he’s probably setting the table for the GOP to take the blame for them being enacted.

    ?bama just said in his news conference with the prescreened questions that “he is going to be an even better president than he was in his first”.
    You think that is the voice of a man that is going to compromise at all?? He thinks he has done a good job!

      A real alternate reality.
      I’m glad you listened to him . . . I can’t stand the sound of his voice. The choppy, lilting syntax, the phraseology, the lies . . . he sounded like his teleprompter was slow and jerky. (If he was so great a leader, how come the economy is in the dumpster?)?
      TOTUS, POTUS, is there real a difference?
      “Let me be clear on this . . .” Translated: “Here is how I want you think about this . . .”

        It isn’t the teleprompter that’s “jerky”……
