The GOP hasn’t learned that you cannot “deal” with liars and Democrats (but I repeat myself). The GOP also hasn’t learned that the press will never love them (no matter how “moderate”/“bi-partisan” they are), that they’ll always be blamed for failure, that “a deal” should never be the goal, and that the Democrats will always get the credit for any success (or have it spun so). No one can stop the catastrophe that awaits us, but it may be less painful & the recovery may be shorter if conservatives win control of both houses in 2014. This can occur only if the Democrats get 90%+ of the blame for the “fiscal cliff,” and this can happen only if the Democrats get everything they ask for without resistance by the GOP.
