Members of Congress have made it a practice to treat the opposition with courtesy and respect even during the most heated of disputes. President Obama took to the airways today to humiliate and degrade the opposition party with untoward politicized remarks. Republicans should simply refuse to deal with him until he learns the decorum of a statesman rather than acting like a Chicago back alley Pol. The Republican Party would be better off as would the country as a whole. There is no need to mince words.
The media complain of a dysfunctional government. They should look
closely at its source – a president in constant campaign mode ready to
demagogue any issue.
Outsiders, like this writer, are not privy to the fiscal-cliff offers
and counter offers that are being circulated, but a general knowledge
of the basic numbers and of Obama’s style of negotiating lead me to
conclude that the Republicans are being stampeded into an unacceptable
deal that raises taxes on top earners by $180 billion between now and
2015 while cancelling almost a half trillion of scheduled spending cuts
over the same period.
