"F%$& the President"

Dems are keeping it classy:

The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday's House Democratic Caucus meeting.

One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter "f-- the president" while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker.

"It wasn't loud," the Nevada Democrat said. "It was just expressing frustration from a very frustrated Member."

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) was also overheard saying that "we can't trust him" not to cave to Republicans and extend the tax cuts again in two years, according to a Democratic source.

Hell hath no fury like a liberal scorned.

Brett:

So, let me just summarize - the very first time he shows a little personal initiative and leadership, and strays just microscopically away from being a rubber stamp for *any* crazy thing that Pelosi&Co. come up with, they turn on him, viciously. Why, how dare the *President of the United States* interfere with their agenda! Who does he think he is?

I expect we will soon see who the real racists are now - none of the quotes above contained the word "uppity" but just watch what happens once the new Congress starts up and these imbeciles are entirely powerless.

And best of all, he's really trying to do them a favor- his supporting the tax cut extension could easily provide political cover for the "soak the rich crowd". He has clearly seen that failing to extend the tax rate cuts for the middle class is a political kamikaze mission.

All the idiots have to do is allow the vote to go forward, pass the thing, and then tell their liberal idiot base that, "yes, we disagree with parts of the bill, but out of deference to the president and to our beloved working people we passed it". They get the middle-class tax rate reduction, the "rich" people tax rate stays down (and as a consequence, *revenues go up* instead of down), economy gets better, and 2012 goes from a certain Democrat bloodbath to a tough but survivable loss.

The lemmings better wise up fast - Pelosi will happily lead them right off the cliff.

Oh, this is going to be a sweet couple of years indeed!

The Moonbat Meltdown continues apace. Exxxxcellent, Smithers.

If the Dems want to block this crappy mis-characterized tax 'cut' deal, let 'em. This was/is no great deal for Republicans, or America.

I understand why you say it is mischaracterized, and I understand why you (as I) love to see these idiots floundering, confused, hysterical.

But I don't see why you think the deal itself is a bad idea. Allowing the tax rates to rise on *anyone* during a severe economic downturn is a very very bad idea for both the standpoint of the economy and politically for anyone who goes along with it. The "deal" is almost entirely one-sided, a straight win (assuming it eventually passes, either now, or reconstituted in a few months) for those wanting to extend it for all taxpayers, without having to give up anything consequential. That's at least part of why the idiots are so upset - they just straight lost, and Obama, from their perspective, caved.

Voting against this or killing it in committee is like taking off in your Zero, and diving into an American aircraft carrier - in 1946.

This deal is bad because it... (Below threshold)
Les Nessman:

This deal is bad because it is a temporary 2-year extension. That is almost (I said almost) inexcusable.
2 years is not enough time for any serious business to feel safe enough to start expanding or hiring again or bringing back laid-off workers. They know this can was just kicked down the road and we will be doing this all over again.

Also, maybe I'm just sore that the Dems may actually block this --- because they think it's actually too terrible to 'give' tax 'cuts' to the 'rich'!!!! WTF? Unreal.

Yeah, I can grudgingly live with it if it passes. But the Repubs had better show a lot, A LOT, more spine starting in January.

I agree that it's not as go... (Below threshold)
Brett :

I agree that it's not as good as making in permanent. Whatever permanent means with a 2-year election cycle. However, in this case, yes, it kicks it two years down the road - a period in which the adults will be in full control.

All that needs to happen is that it gets kicked down the road about 3 months - at which time it almost certainly becomes permanent.

All we have to do is get out of the lame duck essentially unscathed (which, given the meltdown, seems pretty solid). This bill (presuming it is passed) accomplishes that.

John S:

I almost feel sorry for Obama--almost.

And the Dems could make a better case for soaking the rich if they didn't insist that $250,000 a year is "rich." Six months of hyperinflation and we could all be "rich" by June.
