Much as it pains me, I totally agree.
If congressional republicans offer even token resistance, they will be blamed for the coming economic catastrophe (which is coming either way), and our dumbed-down populace will buy it. Boehner will cave anyway, so he might as well play the "bipartisan" and let Obama work his economic "magic."
I guarantee, if Boehner manages to hold the line on taxes (doubtful anyway), the narrative will be "Obama's brilliant policies would have worked if not for those damn republicans' insistence on tax cuts for 'the rich.'"
Cries of republican "obstructionism" will ring out across the land, and the economic illiterates will buy it.
