Blah blah blah....until a party (not a politic al party, necessarily) stands up against, we are sunk..... When will that be? Never, in my estimation.... More thievery, more lawlessness, more ...fill in the blank....

Actually, the GOP got more from zero on the "cliff" deal than most report:

1--the Bush "cuts" (that only returned taxes back before Clinton raised them in 1993) are permanent. That issue will never be something zero can hold over the entire nation's head again.

2-sequestration will hurt the Pentagon (but it has huge swaths of pork and fat to cut) but it also applies to fed. workers and the engorged DC work force that zero has upped 24% will also be slashed and cut, as people all over have lost jobs and careers and DC has never been touched.

3-all programs and agencies will also have automatic cuts that cannot be pushed into another year or stuffed somewhere off the books, actually helping attack the deficit and debt

Gore appeared on the Charlie Rose show last night, unfortunately the editors left the part where Gore rips Fox News as "propaganda" on the cutting room floor. I've watched Gore's appearance on the Charlie Rose show on my DVR and also on Charlie Rose's web site and the "propaganda" part is not there. The editors did leave in the part where Gore praises the Al Jazeera network--so I grabbed that. Having said that, someone who attended the live taping of the show recorded the "propaganda" part on their cell phone. The video is not stellar but the content is worth...
