Happy New Year from Dear Leader. Obama on the cliff. Jan. 2, 2013. At one point he seems to celebrate getting the deficit back down closer to $1 trillion. Talk about easy victories. And the following sounds suspiciously like a call for more taxes: "Obviously, there is still more to do when it comes to reducing our debt. And I’m willing to do more, as long as we do it in a balanced way that doesn’t put all the burden on seniors or students or middle class families, but also asks the wealthiest Americans to contribute and pay their fair share." Says the man who has never met a spending cut worth his time.
