In reply to: GOP issues a new 'fiscal cliff' offer to Obama »

December 4, 2012

@Emperor1972: Every economist I read, and G.W. Bush's own Treasury Secretary, Paul O'Neill told him the Bush Tax Cuts would cause massive deficits. And they have. Right now, depending on which accounting one read, the Bush Tax Cuts account for 16 to 20 % of our deficit. Do you know his you get out of a hole? Stop digging the fracking hole! During the Clinton Administration we lived quite nicely with the tax rates. I think it's the Republicans that are posturing. They are saying the ball is in the President's court. Not true. Until these slimy, gutless hacks present a counter offer of spending cuts they would approve, the President should just sit and wait. The reason Romney didn't get elected is because every talk show he was on, when asked about which programs or which loop holes should be eliminated, he would say, I not telling you that here. Boehner did the same thing on Chris Wallace's show when asked to give specifics said,"I'm not going to negotiate those with you here." My question to the Republicans who have done nothing for the past 4 years but obstruct the President (as well as all growth in the economy), when will you give us some details?

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number
