Ramirez: The Compromise

This just about sums-up the week does it not? One week closer to the Fiscal Cliff. I say we go for it. If you’re not watching the Michael Ramirez editorial cartoons over at Investor’s Business Daily, you should be.

Read Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air for a chaser.

    Michael Ramirez has a nice, incisive way of provoking thought.
    I wonder how Progressive Socialists — Democrats –? react to his work?

    Professionals advise that substance abusers need to hit bottom, before they can rid themselves of their addiction. I say, the Republicans need to present their Ryan budget. The House can vote on that budget. Of course, then it goes to the Senate and it will not pass. The Democrats will have to make the cuts. If they don’t, ?we fall off the cliff and hit bottom. Maybe this will cure the addiction to spending.

    Oh forgot, “you have to be cruel to be kind, in the right measure”.

      Tough love. Exactly why Congressional (the Representative Critters) leadership, emphasis on leader, has to call Obama’s bluff and refuse to be associated with any of the White House’s tax and spend schemes.
      The MSM will excoriate the Republicans, no matter what, and any others who go along with thwarting Barry. Be that as it is, we can’t control that.
      Republicans should keep their fingerprints off of any solutions. They have stated their concerns and have said what needs to be done. Enough! Let the opposition own it all.

    Everything this administration does reflects a desire to undermine any economic recovery- despite what is being said.? As far as I’m concerned, Obama, Geithner, Bernanke, et al are determined not only to perpetuate a near recessional state but to deepen it as much as possible without it being blatant that they are doing so.? This is the equivalent of putting antifreeze in a car’s crankcase and calling it an oil change.

    Question, what’s the difference between 1 trillion and 2 trillion over 10 years?
    Jack crap, when “baseline” means 10-13 trillion in deficit.
    Sorry folks, we need to experience Greece’s pain before people are going to smell the progressive cancer.
