Make the Democrats Own the Obama Economy

I agree. The GOP should go along with EVERY SINGLE Obama proposal. This is the only way to show the libs that their economic theory doesn't work; otherwise, they'll simply say it didn't work due to GOP obstructionism (as they did this last campaign). Let them own this. Give them what they want and they can't shift blame elsewhere when it tanks. Hey, if we give them what they want and it works, then we'll have a great economy and we'll all be better off. If it doesn't work, we can say "Told you so", get Conservatives (notice I didn't say Republicans) in there who can fix the economy, then we'll all be better off. It's a win-win. This is one case where we may want to lose this battle so we can win the war.

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
