Here should be the Republican address when in the State of the Union President Obama calls Republicans obstructionists. The Republican reply should read the Constitutional provision for all spending and taxing bills to begin in the House of Representatives. Then the spokesman for the Republican reply would say - we have a duty to the citizens who elected us and they tell us they are paying enough taxes. We represent them not the president or the Senate, now deal with it. We aren't authorizing any additional spending nor any new taxes. Deal with it.

I hope the Repubs have a rebuttal along the lines: it takes two to tango.

How long is this show going to go on in Washington, and must it? They say closing time for its costars is midnight, December 31. That's when the president and the speaker of the House need to agree on the federal budget Or Else, but politicians never met a deadline they couldn't postpone, as in Can, Kick Down the Road.

This year's burlesque is turning into a melodrama (working title: Meltdown) as both sides steer the country right over the dreaded (cue scary music) Fiscal Cliff! Thelma and Louise, here we come. The Mayans couldn't have written a scarier doomsday...
