Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on December 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NEVADA): We have been negotiating now for 36 hours or thereabouts. We did have conversations last night that ended late in the evening between staffs. This morning, we have been trying to come up with some counteroffer to my friend’s proposal. We have been unable to do that.

I have had a number of conversations with the president, and at this stage we’re not able to make a counteroffer. The Republican leader has told me that — and he’s just said here — that he’s working with the vice president, and he and the vice president, I wish them well.

In the meantime, I will continue to try to come up with something. But at this stage, I don’t have a counteroffer to make. Perhaps as the day wears on, I will be able to. I will say this, I think that the Republican leader has shown absolutely good faith. It’s just that we are apart on some pretty big issues.

***

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s appearance on Meet the Press this morning.

“Americans elected President Obama to lead, not cast blame. The president’s comments today are ironic, as a recurring theme of our negotiations was his unwillingness to agree to anything that would require him to stand up to his own party. Needed cuts and reforms that the president agreed to just last year were no longer on the table, as he cited an inability to sell them to Democrats.

“In an effort to get the president to agree to cut spending — which is the problem — I put revenues on the table last year, and I put them on the table again last month. Republicans made every effort to reach the ‘balanced’ deficit agreement that the president promised the American people, while the president has continued to insist on a package skewed dramatically in favor of higher taxes that would destroy jobs. We’ve been reasonable and responsible. The president is the one who has never been able to get to ‘yes.’

“The House has passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff, and the president has never called for the Senate to act on those bills in any way. He instead has simply allowed the Democratic-controlled Senate to sit on them and lead our economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff. I am pleased Senators from both parties are currently working to find a bipartisan solution that can finally pass that chamber. That is the type of leadership America needs, not what they saw from the president this morning.”

***

Schumer instead blamed House Republicans for resisting compromise on a final deal.

“There are 50 hard right people in the House who don’t want to compromise. They don’t believe in any revenues, they say compromise is a dirty word. And Speaker [John] Boehner just as recently as last week played their tune,” Schumer said. ”You cannot make a deal if you’re going to let the people who are hardest right and uncompromising dictate what we should do.”

But Kyl rejected Schumer’s suggestion that House Republicans are to blame for the failure to get a deal.

“If the Democrats and Mr. Obama in particular don’t get more seriously into that discussion, they have no standing to complain about the Republicans’ lack of balance,” Kyl said. “This is not just a problem with the House. The House passed legislation that would overt the fiscal cliff, both on the sequestration side and on the tax rate side. They’ve already acted.”

***

“In the short term, Republicans are blamed more than Democrats,” Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), the incoming chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, acknowledged. “I think in the long term, the political damage is to the president and to Democrats.”…

But while Baucus and Landrieu have to worry about 2014, there’s a camp of liberals who don’t want Reid to budge at all unless McConnell caves to virtually all Democratic demands. They argue their party could work its will in the new year and have a much stronger hand to rewrite the Tax Code. Liberal Democrats warn that their party base will be furious at a deal they believe gives away too much, either by not raising taxes enough or by caving on spending cuts.

“I just hope the president doesn’t think he has to give away all this stuff,” said Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). “He’s in a much better position after the first of the year than he is now.”…

“We may get some disproportionate blame,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), “but there will be plenty to go around.”

***

Sen. Tom Coburn said Sunday there are some advantages to going off the so-called fiscal cliff.

“There are a lot of disadvantages. One of the advantages will be that the American people are going to see what the real cost of their government is — the actual real cost — for both the very wealthy. The very, very low will have minimal impact on them; it’s about $200 a year,” Coburn said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

***

Let us pray. Mighty God, have mercy upon us. Because of your unfailing love, because of your great compassion, let us feel your presence today on Capitol Hill as we gather with so much work left undone. Guide our lawmakers with your wisdom. Lord, show them the right thing to do and give them the courage to do it. Be their shelter in the midst of the storm, regardless of how high the waters rise. When they feel exhausted, remind them of the great sufficiency of your grace. Look with favor on our nation and save us from self-inflicted wounds. We pray in your strong name. Amen.

There’s one thing I don’t understand in this debacle: Why did Boehner fire all the fiscal cons before any deal was made? Kinda guarantees that they’ll vote against any deal at all, right, just to screw him?

PattyJ on December 30, 2012 at 8:52 PM

I was grudgingly giving Boehner the benefit of the doubt until he did that. Politics is all about power, money and ego. I don’t care anymore, I’m just trying to figure out how I can make money off of their policymaking. Democrat or Republican, it doesn’t matter to me.

i know the leftists are already screeching their hate toward those who didn’t immediately accept the party line wrt Hill, but here’s a summary from the .GOV itself

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001802/

A concussion is a minor traumatic brain injury (TBI) that may occur when the head hits an object, or a moving object strikes the head.

It can affect how your brain works for a while. A concussion can lead to a bad headache, changes in alertness, or loss of consciousness.

as sane people know, it has a wide spectrum of severity.

as sane people know, barry et al. have not been forthcoming about Hill…openness is not their style.

but a clot this far along sounds passing strange to me. I guess it was a minor seeping of blood that didn’t show up on an MRI?…or something…and Hill got sick again, did a scan on Sunday and found a clot?

but, let’s hope that the blood thinners do their job.

Schadenfreude on December 30, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Americans elected President Obama to lead, not cast blame.

We don’t elect Presidents to “lead”. We elect them (the legitimate ones, at least) to just run the Executive branch within its Constitutional restraints. Americans don’t yearn for some national leader. We aren’t Europeans. We aren’t Chinese. We are a free and individualistic people. We expect Congress to legislate as they should and for all of our politicians to operate in good faith. The Weeper needs to get straight what sort of government America has and what sort of governance flows from that. Not leadership. In America, the private sector leads, not the public sector. The public sector is just supposed to do its job with minimal damage – which you fools are totally incapable of. Barky and the dems are looking to inflict intentional damage (because Barky’s an Indonesian 84 IQ imbecile who hates America and the dems are his useless idiots) and the Weeper is too much of a wuss to understand that it’s his job to put the brakes on that damage.

The Weeper must go. And he has to STFU, too. He has nothing of value to say. Ever. Just put a sock in his mouth and lock him in the closet, or something.

“There are a lot of disadvantages. One of the advantages will be that the American people are going to see what the real cost of their government is — the actual real cost

I agree with the sentiment, people should pay for the government they vote for, but he is overselling it by miles; the only way people will feel the real cost of government is if we balance the budget, and going over the fiscal cliff is only a first step in that direction.

Let us pray.

I think everybody who believes in God also believes that God created the laws of nature, including the natural laws of economics. According to God’s rules budgets need to balance to be sustainable, and according to God’s rules the more imbalanced a budget or ecosystem or what have you becomes, the the more dramatic the correction will be when nature inevitably takes over and restores balance.

I suspect God would advise Congress go over the cliff, not to avoid it, and to explain to the people that it is the responsible thing to do to tamp down the fears their cronies in the MSM have been drumming up for political purposes. Then I think God would advise Congress to fashion a second and third fiscal cliff and go over those as well, and continue doing so until the budget is balanced. Either that or else God will sort it out himself.

I’d try to get him set-up with a nice Government job (preferably Federal).

MAJOR growth industry that neither side is doing anything to slow down.

Momentum alone will carry the bloat well beyond li’l bammie’s 2nd term.

Can’t beat the pension plan, and he’ll NEVER have to deal with Obamacare…his union won’t allow it.

Tim_CA on December 30, 2012 at 9:43 PM

Interesting thought but sooner or later you end up like the bureaucrats in Russia depicted in the movies. I’d rather he’d be like Swamp Fox. Remember him?

Vince on December 30, 2012 at 9:57 PM

why? Bill is revered now. That’s completely forgotten. Well, not forgotten, but people don’t care.

Slade73 on December 30, 2012 at 9:54 PM

Completely agree. She won’t squirm. The media conglomerate will cover for her. They’ll spin their butts off for her.

Oh sure, places like this, Breitbart, Townhall, and others will point it out, but alternative media is not big enough yet to make her squirm. We’re only big when she needs to blame a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

You remind me of the Chief in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest who thought he was small. Back in ’09 and ’10 the tea party got our message out just fine, the problem was that afterwords the GOP stabbed the tea party in the back. The GOP no longer represent the tea party so they lost grass roots tea party support.

Even now the GOP has the channels available to them to get their message out, it’s just that unlike the tea party, nobody likes the GOP’s message. If the tea party were to take over the GOP then people would listen again and spread the word.

You’ll notice I said “yet.” We are growing and can get there, I believe. We just don’t have the numbers to attract enough national attention to make her squirm–yet. *there, I said it again*

hmmmm. i wonder where his loyalties lie…..with heaven and hobby lobby or hell with obama and the wise latina?

renalin on December 30, 2012 at 10:20 PM

What a pathetic nation we have become to have elected this fraud twice.

May God shine His light on this administration exposing all the fraud and abuse of power. I pray this fraud slips up and gives us a reason to impeach him. Even if it takes four years, he deserves nothing but public shame and disgrace.

Please Great Lord who died on the cross…help us with this fictional thing that doesn’t really exist, because the rich need to be soaked. Please Lord Jesus, help us raise 8 days of funding and cut zero spending. Please Jesus – help everyone to live on foodstamps and Obamaphones forevermore. Amen.

Slow-roasted Congresscritter. I like the sound of that.

As for Hillary, seems to me she’s a loose-end regarding Benghazi; can’t have that. Where are all of the other survivors again? Meeting with disease, concussion, and other assorted accidents perhaps?
