We will go over the "cliff" because that is the Democrat's plan. They want another crisis so they can demand another massive stimulus package. They also want to blame House Republicans for all the fallout from their failed policies of the first four years. George Bush has been ridden as far as he can carry them. They need a new scape goat. Democrat's plan is to blame the "obstructionist" Republicans. After the elections Democrats immediately began chanting the same message, "We want to work together with Republicans". We heard this from every Democrat (Excluding Reid). Democrats were setting up this message for the liberal news media to use for the next four years.

Spot on, jimmylynn. They'll be tickled pink to see the consequences of the fiscal cliff inflicted on our nation's economy, just to say I told you so. The exit polls on Election Day are in their favor: the stats show that the public are buying Obama's soak-the-rich fairy tale and will blame the Republicans if resisting it brings us over the cliff.

News clips of the Democrat's sincerity and commitment to work with Republicans. After about a Nona-second Democrats switch gears and actually antagonize Republicans as though they want to piss_off the House Republicans with unacceptable demands ….because they do. They are simply setting up their game plan....”Blame Republicans” to get everything they want and take none of the blame for it. They are really working on destroying the Republican party once and for all.
In his first formal press conference in months, Barack Obama showed that getting re-elected can increase a president's confidence and combativeness. He staked out tough stands on several issues, especially on the looming budget negotiations.

Looking ahead to the "fiscal cliff" on Dec. 31, when the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and sequestration cuts government spending sharply, Obama demanded $1.6 trillion of increased revenues as part of any budget bargain.

That's twice the number he and Speaker John Boehner agreed on in the grand bargain talks in the summer of 2011.

Those talks fell apart when Obama telephoned Boehner and raised his demand...
