Sorry Larry but John B is a complete waste, typical rino Republican, no cajones, no guts, no glory. No, if they are not Conservatives I want nothing to do with them. They are part of the problem not the cure. Time to get rid of JB.

Sorry but you are wrong

A true Conservative and Republican is Boehner.

Now do you want ALL Americans to pay higher taxes in two weeks?

If you do insist on no compromise .

Oh sure you will feel good blaming Dems but will it be good?

Now a raise on the richest (not a 250K level but much higher) compromise is NOT good, but it is BETTER then the raise taxes on ALL if we do nothing

...you can't "compromise" when the other side refuses to negotiate... EVERY citizen paying higher taxes in 2 weeks HAS BEEN THE PLAN since the beginning!!! Anyone who has been paying attention realizes this...

Actually, I think Obama is beginning to realize that he has more to lose than the Republicans.

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
