Pat - it is sad to see even a straight shooter like you covering for the cowardice of republican leadership! REPUBLICANS MORE POWER HINGRY THAN DEMS! There is NO Other Reason for them to capitulate everytime --- Compare that to Dems...they stand on their prinicples! If the republicans voting masses do not understand this & get hoodwinked by RINOs again & again, we cannot blame anybody! Tea Partyers, Conservatives & Libertarians have to Unite to save this country first from Boehner & Co & then the liberals.
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's opening bid to Speaker John Boehner, a demand for $1.6 trillion in new taxes, was not meant as a serious offer. It was an ultimatum couched in an insult. Translation:

"We won the election. We have the whip hand. Not only are you going to sign on to higher tax rates and higher tax revenues, we are going to rub your Tea Party noses in your coming capitulation."

That Boehner did not throw the offer back in Geithner's face and tell him, "Give me a call, Tim, when you're serious," suggests that the speaker feels he is...
