Obama's legacy already exposes him as America's worst president. He exceeded formidable competitors. He fronts for Wall Street, war profiteers, and other corporate bosses. 

He's setting race relations back decades. Analysts one day may wonder how he and likeminded hardliners defrauded the public irresponsibly and got away with it.

Around yearend or early next year, expect his latest installment. Holiday cheer Obama-style assures lump of coal harshness. Many millions affected deserve better. Disappointment awaits them. It's baked in the cake.

The 2011 Budget Control Act mandates $1.2 trillion in largely discretionary sequestered cuts for starters. Around $4 trillion over the next decade is planned. 

Much more will be added in out years. Spending won't decline so deficits will keep rising exponentially. Neither party worries about them or debt. Saying so is doublespeak deception.

America's most disadvantaged, middle income earners, and seniors will bear most pain. Super-rich elites are largely protected. So are corporate favorites. 

Paul Craig Roberts asked if the fiscal cliff is real or "just another hoax?" It's "real, but it is a result, not a cause. The hoax is the way (it's) being used."

Doublespeak duplicity claims it's to reduce America's burgeoning deficit and debt. Neither can be addressed responsibly because spending prioritizes militarism, imperial wars, bailing out banks, huge corporate subsidies, and tax cuts for the rich.
