Obama’s Fiscal Cliff

USA Today praised Obama’s “defiant tone” in his first news conference since the election in which he refused to back down on taxes on the wealthy, defended his U.N. ambassador against Republican “bullies,” and declined to criticize the FBI’s investigation of Gen. David Petraeus.

“Obama insisted that he was committed to keeping his promise to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans,” USA Today reported, “setting him at loggerheads with GOP lawmakers who say they are unwilling to consider raising taxes as the two sides ramp up negotiations on avoiding the looming ‘fiscal cliff.’”

As for the two Republican Senators, John McCain and Lindsey Graham who criticized U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice for lying about the cause of the Benghazi attacks on Sept. 11, Obama declared, “If Sen. (John) McCain and Sen. (Lindsey) Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. To besmirch her reputation is outrageous.”

Outrageous that a member of the U.S. government should be criticized? Well, Mr. “President” not only will we go after her, we will take you up on your offer and go after you as well. But first, the “fiscal cliff.”

Pictured above is what’s left of Riverdale Hill in Riverdale, N.J. These last 60 years or so, this hill and the hill across from it, Washington Hill, have been quarried for granite and other rocks and minerals unique to New Jersey’s Northern Highlands. We’ve spent these years slowly watching Riverdale Hill disappear knowing that inevitably it would vanish completely.

As Riverdale Hill goes, so goes the nation, eaten away by entitlement spending and moral relativism, the cavity filled in by mounting debt and government bureaucracy. Every day, year after year, we passed the slowly vanishing mountain, knowing what would come in the future and yet not being able to do a thing about it. Year after year, we’ve watched Progressives eat away at our Constitutional rights, our economy, our national and individual security, and our influence in the world.

Allegorical drawings and charts of America’s fiscal cliff are fine for illustrating the problem. But sometimes there’s just nothing like looking at the real deal. As you can see above, there’s the fiscal cliff, on the left, and there’s the mountain of debt, on the right.
