#1 There's a cartoon showing Obama peering over the edge of a sharp cliff, How I'd LOVE to "Kick him over", end this crap, it's NOT a"Cliff" More a Democratic Molehill that Obama wants (Hard) to make a Republican one.
Nope, it's a Democratic one.

#2 Additionally, Barrasso believes Obama's willingness to go off the cliff relates to his view of achieving fairness reparations through the tax code.
One very minor correction and I am in full agreement.

#3 We ARE going to go over the fiscal Cliff. Each side will blame the other and the next stop will be an economy like Greece.
When it gets bad enough you will see molotov cocktails and the national Guard in small towns will invite the local citizens to join them.
the dollar will be worth a nickel and you can't get stuff at the supermarket because they wont have it to sell. gasoline will be nine dollars a gallon. And most people will not own a gun and those that do will be ready to use them. Try to collect taxes then.
Plant a backyard garden and eat your dog. Hands behind your head.
never happen, right?

#4 The Administration needs the crisis to come to a full, rolling boil so it can exploit it ('never let a good crisis go to waste.') Anything bad will be the unavoidable result of Republican actions, as you will be told repeatedly by all the media. Properly exloited, this could be the last crisis the Progressives need to avoid wasting.

#5 We are already over the cliff. It's all over but the shouting...

#6 So lets go already, I'm sick and tired of all the hand wringing and bellyaching over it.
I'm ready for Bladerunner, I'm the frickin Lizard King.

#8 Obama going off the cliff reminds me of the Geico commercial for car insurance where a pig is going down a zip line (another version has the pig on a skateboard) going "Wheeeeeeee, wheeeeee, wheeee!" all the way down.

#9 I am amazed the Republicans don't get it. Going off the cliff is the point as far as obama is concerned. he gets to (a) gut the military (b) cut projects that Republicans like or that will hurt in a way he can blame Republicans.
The problem here is we have one party trying to save the country while the other is dedicated to killing the opposition party with little thought of what happens to the county in the mean-time because they will have total control to do as they please afterwards.
Republicans need to step back and get into the long game because they are losing.

#10 What's he got to lose? He's done, no more elections for him. Piss the economy down the drain? Screw the country?
The important thing? How will this affect him? Answer: Not much.

#11 Republicans need to step back and get into the long game because they are losing.
Republicans lost the long game decades ago when they conceded the education system to the collectivists. They lost before they even knew the game was on.

#12 I wouldn't saw lost the game Glenmore but agree that has put them on the ropes for a few rounds. So knowing that, how to fight back? Id go full bore on school choice. Hammer the teachers union and start pushing Question Authority again. Do it all from outside if possible, at local and regional levels. The long game continues.
