Obama Scuttles 'Fiscal Cliff' Deal?

Obama Scuttles ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Deal?

This afternoon, in one of the more bizarre appearances of his presidency,  Barack Obama gave a televised address to a room full of supporters on the “fiscal cliff.” He broke no news, but mocked Congress, and hinted at future tax  hikes. Observers worried that he may have deliberately scuttled a potential  agreement.

Even though he has come off his last campaign for political office, President  Obama acted like a candidate on the campaign trail–one prepared to use whatever  political capital he had accumulated to take shots at the opposition in Congress  at the very moment leaders from both sides are trying to work together.

Less a President, Obama behaved more like an ESPN talking-head making fun of  RG III’s knee injury.

Obama’s address, which you can watch below, was held basically to announce  that some other people are working on solving the “fiscal cliff” crisis. They  are close, Obama reported, but they aren’t quite there yet. He then proceeded to  make some jokes about Congress, to warm applause from his selected audience.  Smug doesn’t come close to capturing the true nature of his tone.
