The GOP should destroy Obama. Now is the time.

Do you know who was Speaker of the House under Calvin Coolidge? Herbert Hoover? FDR?

Keep that thought in mind.

CBS Political Director John Dickerson suggested that Barack Obama ought to destroy the GOP

The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat. …

Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.

Anyone with half a brain knows that Obama means little to none of what he says, but never mind that for a moment. The advice to Obama is to “pulverize” them and Obama has consistently demonized the GOP. With that in mind, it’s time for payback.

Also remember that all politics is local.

Mort Zuckerman asserts that we are in a an Obama depression:

The reality is, we are experiencing a modern-day Depression. It is harder to find work than it has been in any previous economic recovery period. Typically, it takes 25 months to close the employment gap from the employment peak near the start of a downturn. But this time around, five years after employment peaked in January 2008, non-farm employment is still roughly 4 million below where it started. Never before has the job level not been at a record high during the fourth year into a business cycle.

In fact, 4.5 million fewer Americans are working today than when the recession started, and fewer are working today than in the year 2000, despite the fact that our population has grown by 31 million and our labor force by 11.4 million. Though the White House forecast four years ago that, with its stimulus policies, the jobless rate would be down to 5.2 percent by now, the real unemployment rate is 14.4 percent.

The Pew Research Center reports that for the first time in the post-World War II era, middle-class families finished the decade significantly poorer in terms of household net worth—which is down almost 40 percent since 2007—and with lower incomes than a decade earlier. This has hit the middle class harder than any other group. According to Pew, one third of Americans now identify themselves as lower class or lower middle class, a deterioration since 2008 when one quarter identified themselves that way.

We are in a depression. The Obama depression.

Barack Obama has a huge ego. Gigantic.

“The issue here is not going be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.

But it IS a list of accomplishments he is after. He pushed through a stimulus, a health care abomination and wants to push through amnesty and suffocate us with “climate change” legislation without any of them needing to be successful. The economy should be Job One, but it still sucks and shows no inclination to improve.

Enough. The GOP should destroy Obama and they can absolutely do it. The tools are in their hands right now.

Obama wants a deal- he wants to raise taxes and put the sequester cuts off until….well, sometime. I’ll get back to you on that.

President Obama called on Congress on Tuesday to avoid a series of automatic budget cuts next month by passing a short-term budget plan this month.

“Deep indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy, and national security will cost us jobs, and it will slow down our recovery,” Obama said during brief remarks at the White House.

Facing a March 1 deadline, Obama called for “a small package” of spending cuts and tax revenue increases as a short-term stopgap to delay the series of automatic cuts known as the sequester.

Obama said the economy is “headed in the right direction,” and “it will stay that way, as long as there aren’t any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of Washington.” He added, “let’s keep on chipping away at this problem” of budget deficits and debt.

John Boehner should just say no. McConnell should say no.

There are a couple of possible outcomes. The economy suffers a little initially and then improves because of debt reduction. The second is that the economy does not improve. Then again, it is not improving now. Obama is treading water and he knows it. That’s why he is asking gently for a deal instead of demanding one.

This is the time to destroy him. Deny him the opportunity to put off responsibility. Deny him the chance to kick the can down the road again.

If the economy stays in the doldrums, history will remember only Obama. It will not remember Boehner or McConnell. It will remember Obama and his lousy economy and Obama will join the pantheon of Herbert Hoover and Millard Fillmore.

Boehner and McConnell? They’d be heroes in their home territories. They were elected to be the opposition. And as someone once said, all politics is local. If the economy does improve Boehner and McConnell will be sitting pretty. They will have conquered Obama. There will not likely be a better opportunity.

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012…..

    Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under seize, “up to us.”

    In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    Panetta said that, save their 5 o’clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about the what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

    Video at link.

    How on earth could Obama do this to these men in Benghazi?
    If anything could add a nail to the coffin of Republicans destroying Obama, this is one of those things.
    If the media covers this up, they need to go.

    It’s the G.Old white men P, that is in danger of extinction as demographics move inexorably against it.
    2014 will show further deterioration in Congress Dems. add to Senate majority and pull close to even in the House.
    Only a ticket led by Rubio (Rice a great Veep pick) in 2016 gives hope. Tea Party war with establishment Repubs. will provide entertainment.

    Conservatives NEVER get it right.Rubio is too moderate and his nomination will look like pandering.You need a stolid,unapologetic conservative with strong libertarian ideas.Either Rand Paul or Sarah.Instead of trying to appeal to minorities who will NEVER vote for the GOP,we need to appeal to the young,hip young people who gravitated to Ron Paul.We need also need to bring independents and disillusioned conservatives who are fed up with RINO after RINO PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEES.

    The GOP could have kept obama out of the white house, and into the Big House by going after him for not having:

    (1) An American birth certificate.
    (2) A Social Security card.
    (3) A Selective Service registration card.
    (4) A driver’s license. (I’m guessing that he doesn’t have one.

    When not one republican will go after obama for the above, this tells me that the GOP has been infiltrated, and it is deeper than I thought it was.

    So, in your liberal mind, anyone who subscribes to core conservative values (two opposite sex parent families, fiscal responsibility on the part of the government, strong national sovereignty, less government intrusion into our lives, and taxpayers should not have to support those who make poor decisions and do nothing to rectify those decisions) is the same as a barbarian war monger who had no problem removing someone’s head?

    Yeah, you would think that way.

    Retire o5 My point is if you see Rubio as a moderate ( derision noted), and therefore a poor nominee, you WILL get beaten again and again.
    Bees Canada is overwhelmingly white 90%+ and will remain so.
    USA 17% Hispanic 70% Dem Most rapidly growing Demographic.
    13% Black 90% Dem
    6% Asian 65% Dem
    This is something Repubs. must deal with to win National elections. Rubio/Rice 2016.Rand Paul’s got as much chance as his dad of ever being POTUS.

    I don’t think Rubio is a moderate, but I do think he is being hookwinked by the likes of McCain and Graham into thinking he is adopting the correct stand on illegal immigration supporting the Shamnesty Act, Part II. It is a mistake, like Allen West voting in favor of the Pigford Settlement, that will be a mistake that will come back to haunt him.

    I understand that the Hispanic bloc is the fastest growing segment of our national society. I also understand that as Hispanics grow in education and wealth, as they are rapidly doing in some states, they will not support Democrats. Ted Cruz did not get elected because only whites voted for him. And you need to understand that many, MANY Hispanics, who can trace their heritage back to the days before Arizona, New Mexico and Texas were even states, are not your common peon who waded the Rio Grande. That is why Eric Holder fought so hard to prevent Texas from implementing its Voter I.D. law. Got to let those illegals register to vote for those Democrats, you know.

    Funny how having an education, starting a business or going to work for a six figure salary for some major concern, will turn people into conservatives when they see the greed of the IRS and how the federal government attempts to thwart their ability to make their businesses grow. That phenomonon is not exclusive to whites only.
