Obama's showing his total contempt for conservative Americans - a condition that would lead to outright warfare in any other country; but just as fiscal sanity was bred out of the Democrat party, reaction to insults like Obama tosses out has been bred out of the GOP.

Not defending. But obama is one of the most cut throat politicians we have seen over a hundred years. he has alot of things going for them the GOP cant match,,,he has awesome support from minorities, a wicked campaign that uses technology and support from immigrants. combine them and he realized he could potentially destroy or marginalize the GOP. any politician would do this given his assets.

You forgot a very compliant media who shares his contempt for Conservatives.

And a GOP that can't recognize an enemy as an enemy even when they are getting the daylights beaten out of them.

As the country is on the verge of going over the “fiscal cliff,” President Obama signed an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees. Translation: some federal workers—ranging from the vice president to the Supreme Court and members of Congress—will be getting a raise. Via The Weekly Standard:

According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he'll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900....
