>>> liz cheney thinks she understands president obama 's formula for success. according to liz, the president's strategy for re-election is to keep the economy in the ditch.
>> the president of the united states has put no serious plan on the table for dealing with entitlements which is the biggest challenge that we face economically right now. the president of the united states i don't think made a single phone call to people on the supercommittee. i talked to one republican member of the supercommittee who said he reached out numerous times to the white house to say, we want a deal, we need a deal, and was completely given the back of his hand. there was no effort here. the president basically seems to have made the calculation that he's going to let the next 13 months of the american economy slide for the sake of his own, you know, political --
>> i'm not asking whether --
>> so it's all about cuts, then, it's not about creating jobs. in liz cheney 's world, an incumbent president wants to go into a re-election fight with unemployment at 9%? and it's more important to talk about cuts? last time i checked, bad economy isn't so good for the guy in the oval office . by the way, the real reasons democrats refuse to accept the republican supercommittee deal is that, number one, it was rotten, it was no good and it was ridiculous. their compromise involved less than $300 billion in new revenue and it included an even bigger tax cut for the rich. again and again. president obama is not the one who wants the economy to slide. the republicans are the ones who have had their number one goal stated all along that they want to defeat president obama next year. no matter what it takes. republicans are the ones who oppose middle class tax cuts while they continue to fight for the 1%ers. republicans are the ones who have walked away from compromises again and again and again. and the only reason these jokers running for president on the republican ticket have any shot at all at winning is if it's a bad economy and it goes to double digit unemployment. for liz cheney to say president obama wants the economy to get worse, so he can get re-elected, is just plain dumb "psycho talk."
