Already lost the fight? Not quite. There is one more play -- Call. No, we can't stop Caesar Obamanus. But we can make sure he shows his hand... and takes the blame. The word is "OBSTAIN". Don't let the Amateur pin the blame on us for the coming debacle by begging for trivial concessions. Just let him have his way. DON'T VOTE. He says we can tax and spend our way to prosperity.

Obama knows all too well about voting present.

You'll remember that President Barack Obama was the only candidate with a detailed plan to deal with the impending fiscal unpleasantness. And, as the president explained this week during his first press conference since winning re-election, "more voters agreed" with him, so naturally, it's time to give the people what they want.

So what do we win? Well, turns out there's only one detail worth remembering when dealing with the slew of tax hikes that kick in next year: We must reverse Bush-era tax rates on the rich. According to rosy projections of the Congressional Budget Office, this would...
