It’s Barack’s House!
The next 53 days are crucial. That’s how much time Washington has to come together to stop taxes from going up for 114 million middle class families. That’s how much time we have to figure out the right way to begin to get our deficits under control.
There are 53 days left to find a solution that stops taxes from going up on 140 million American families and helps us reduce our nation’s deficits in a smart and responsible way.
“I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenges,” he said. “But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000, aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes. I’m not going to do that.”
In the days and weeks ahead, the President plans to reach out to members of Congress, labor and business leaders, and citizens from all walks of life to gather ideas and input.
In fact, next week, he’s invited leaders from both parties to come to the White House to begin discussing solutions. But he intends for those conversations to unfold with a minimal amount of drama.
“What the American people are looking for is cooperation,” he said. “They’re looking for consensus. They’re looking for common sense. Most of all, they want action. I intend to deliver for them in my second term, and I expect to find willing partners in both parties to make that happen.”

CIA Director David Petraeus resigned Friday afternoon, citing his “extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair.”
Petraeus, a four-star general who led American forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan, has served his post in the CIA since he retired from the military and was sworn in September 2011. He was a widely respected figure in the military and the intelligence community.
“Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours,” he wrote in his resignation letter.
Petraeus first alerted President Obama of his affair on Thursday, and offered his resignation to which the president later accepted.
“Going forward, my thoughts and prayers are with Dave and Holly Petraeus, who has done so much to help military families through her own work. I wish them the very best at this difficult time,” Obama said in a statement

This is outrageous but predictable from a bunch of adult children who are used to having things their way.
These people need to get over it. Democracy won, they lost. End of story.
I hope the Secret Service is paying close attention to the gathering of “nuts” out there…
After posting the above on Facebook, a California woman doesn’t understand why the Secret Service got involved. The blacked out part is the n-word.
She also lost her job as a result.
The interview she did with the local news is priceless. From the ModBee:
She told the Fox 40 reporter: “I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal. … The assassination part is kind of harsh. I’m not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don’t think I’d care…
