Will someone please tell me why on earth President Obama feels it necessary to take the "fiscal cliff" on the road? I thought that he was suppose to be talking with John Bohener and members of Congress?
President Barack Obama seems to be reapplying his re-election campaign theme of protecting the middle class as he headed to Pennsylvania on Friday suggesting that Republicans could spoil Christmas by driving the country over the "fiscal cliff." Wow, talk about "short term thinking!"
The president's road trip, visiting a factory that makes Hasbro's Tinkertoys, is infuriating Republicans. House Speaker John Boehner called it a "victory lap" as he rejected Obama's proposals to avoid the cliff, the combination of tax increases and spending cuts set to start taking effect in January.
