Some guidelines for the Empress of the Doves.
That’s the GOP one-two punch for the midterm elections.
That’s the bigger message as Obamacare collapses before our very eyes.
Obamacare’s glitches are here to stay according to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. In an exclusive interview with CNBC’s Larry Kudlow, Ryan said the problems with the Affordable Care Act extend far beyond website malfunctions.
Of course, President Obama said none of this would happen. Remember? But everything has changed. And unless the system gets fixed by January 1, a lot of folks are going to be very angry as they’re left out in the cold.
Judging from the speech Obama gave following the deal to end the government shutdown, Republicans better get wise to the president’s next fiscal gambit when the three-month stop-gap budget and debt measures come due.
He’s attacking the economy and markets for his own gain.
Never before has an American president threatened and risked the U.S. economy and financial markets the way Barack Obama has in recent days. For his own narrow political ends, Obama and his minions have actually accused the Republican party of deliberately provoking a Treasury debt default because they don't agree with the Obama position on the continuing budget resolution and the debt ceiling.
Stopping this will be hard. But Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat from West Virginia, has given conservatives a ray of hope.
The president and his lieutenants are willing to negotiate with Russia's Vladimir Putin, Syria's Bashar al-Assad, and most recently, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. But not John Boehner.
President Obama doomed Summer's candidacy months ago with his repeated rebuttals to attacks on Summers. A buzz then developed that a Chairman Summers would be Obama’s guy, sort of the way Arthur Burns was Dick Nixon’s guy years ago.
President Obama, speaking at the G-20 meeting in St. Petersburg on Friday, reminded me of an investment banker trying to sell a deal he doesn't believe in. And the customer knows it.
A nod his way could end the Fed-choice bloodbath.
Why? He’s creating a post-war fairy tale.
The Federal Reserve made news this past week in two separate events. The first came with the Fed’s policy meeting on Wednesday, when the central bank gave no hint that it would taper or slow its QE bond purchases any time soon.
With Detroit filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, everybody knows major root-canal cutbacks are coming. Cutbacks of out-of-control government spending, pensions and health benefits. Major cutbacks. We know that.
I'm not trying to paint a catastrophic picture. But I am suggesting that as the Fed tries to extricate itself from a balance-sheet-ballooning QE approach that I never favored, it won't find the process to be all that easy.
The trouble is, on balance, it’s real hard to find strong evidence of a stronger economy. Instead, as economist David Goldman has noted, investors are bailing out of TIPS because they’re not worried about inflation -- which, by the way, is running about 1 percent.
Without intending to -- and perhaps without even realizing it -- the normally cautious Fed head Ben Bernanke may have launched a major tightening policy during his news conference on Wednesday. The de facto policy shift immediately sparked a rout on Wall Street, with stock, bond, and gold prices all plunging. And it’s going to shake up confidence even more, perhaps even slowing the already anemic recovery.
