“Despite knowing that both sides have major flaws in their arguments and actions over the past few years, both sides continue to double down, just as Americans are trying to ride a double dip of a sluggish economy.”

AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORK (October 17, 2013) –  “Sometimes the height of hypocrisy comes when the chosen purport a sense of arrogance with their actions out of a self-absorbed sense of nobility.

 

“What do I mean?

 

“Look no further than the political landscape and the stalemate coming out of Washington, DC.

 

“Again.

 

“America finds itself at the brink of default and in the crosshairs of economic winds of change globally because the two sides of our political system cannot admit to the errors of their ways.

 

 

“Despite the on-going self-repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the growing opposition to this legislation from former political allies, the still-weak economy, and the failures during the rollout of Obamacare so far, the Obama Administration refuses to consider delaying one of the most controversial, misunderstood, and partisan bills ever passed in American history.

 

“…despite the congressional numbers, poll numbers, election losses, and national viewpoint on our brand, some within the Republican Party have decided to hunker down and continue the fight against Obamacare. In the process, they have – far too often -given the image of opposing the president because of the man that he is versus just opposing his politics and policies. Now, for the third time in as many years, the Republicans are in a political fight where their ultimate objective is apparently unattainable at this time, the opportunity for methodical wins are overlooked during the process, and everyday Americans have continued struggling in the meanwhile.”

AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORK (Across America) (January 2, 2013)

“Let’s be clear about what just happened with the fiscal cliff deal passed over New Year’s weekend by the Senate and House of Representatives.

 

“No one won – and everyone lost, starting with you.

 

“Sure, there will be people that will do their best to spin the negotiations politically to say that President Obama and the Democrats won the negotiations or that the Republicans were able to make their points known and accounted for, even though they were the losers in this past election cycle.

 

“But, do you feel like anyone really won through all of this?

 

“For example, the Bush tax cuts that President Obama campaigned against in 2008 – then signed into law in 2010 – then campaigned against again in 2012….were just – again – extended by the president. This time, the threshold of $250,000 that the election-night victor noted repeated was now pushed up to almost twice that limit. The estate tax went up marginally as well, instead of the larger increase that the Democrats were looking for.

 

“Just the same, do the Republicans have much to hang their hats on? Proclaiming a victory on fending off a tax hike on Americans making less than $450,000 annually comes off as hollow when considering that the payroll tax will go up on all Americans in 2013. Of course, that doesn’t matter as much as the primary tea party issue: the national debt. As long as fiscal compromise in Washington starts with legislation that increases the national debt by trillions, Republicans should be hanging their heads in shame, not hanging their hats on an accomplishment.”
