"The Obama tax hikes." I love it.
Obama will own the third rail of politics.
Republicans should stand their ground for several reasons. If you don't like to be political, it's because right is on their side. But even politically (if they could see it) they hold all the cards. The Democrats have exhausted the lies they used to get them elected. Even if they believe their own lies (which exposes them as idiots) there have to be enough who know the truth to wrestle the others to the ground and stuff a sock their mouths.
I think this is going to be fun.
