Republicans should quit crying and pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

That is the kind of pointless statement that can be hauled out and applied by either side to essentially any debate you can imagine.

So true. They are a party of clowns, they have beclowned themselves since 2008.

Barack Obama and his party had control of both houses for the first two years of his empir... er, first term. He got a lot of "stuff" done-the kind of stuff we create sewer systems to process.

UPDATE: Senator Harry Reid appeared on the floor of the Senate this evening announcing that there would be no vote tonight. He said that they will reconvene Monday morning at 11am. “There’s still significant distance between the two sides, but negotiations continue,” Reid said. “There’s still time left to reach an agreement, and we intend to continue negotiations.” With only one day left of the year, it is looking like a very slim chance the two sides can come together to reach a fiscal cliff deal.

UPDATE: Republicans have taken the CPI off the table in an effort to help negotiations....
