President Barack Obama on Friday pledged an aggressive push to pass an extension to the payroll tax cut for U.S. workers, saying lawmakers must not leave for their holiday break without taking action on it.
“We need to get this done. And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves. Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving and we can all spend Christmas here together.”
Since Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has refused to acknowledge the fact that we can not keep on piling on national debt and taxing job creators in the current recession by blocking any chance at bi-partisan payroll tax/unemployment extensions,
Barack Obama had better be ready to turn in his Hawaiian shirts and suntan oil for snow boots and ear muffs. It is high time to call Obama’s bluff and force him to actually come to the table and act as President in working with Congress to resolve the current payroll tax extension dilemma. Then again, that wouldn’t allow Obama the Grinch to run his campaign against a do-nothing Congress would it? While Obama channels the Harry Truman campaign of 1948, DC remains in a leaderless deadlock. We the people look forward to seeing Barack Obama working on Christmas eve in Washington DC, instead of hobnobbing around with prostitute-soliciting lifelong friends such as Robert Titcomb in Hawaii:
“The president’s fourball at the Mamala Bay Golf Course includes his long-time friend Robert “Bobby” Titcomb who was arrested and plead no contest in May to soliciting a prostitute, Marvin Nicholson, and White House advance man Pete Selfridge,”
Barack Obama is not fooling the informed public about the payroll tax extension debate, especially those who may have read this article. We the people look forward to seeing this Grinch in an empty suit posing as the President of The United States of America standing up in Congress telling them how he took them away from their families at Christmas time. After Barack Obama leads Congress towards passing the payroll tax holiday extension, he then would be free to take Mr. Titcomb on a tour of the Chicago Steam bath he grew so fond of to celebrate the New Year. Birds of a feather and all that.
