I’m not expecting any deal on the deficit or the fiscal cliff. For Democrats failure to reach an agreement is a win-win. By allowing all the earlier tax cuts to expire they’ll get a revenue gusher to re-distribute to their crony clients AND they’ll be able to blame the Republicans for the bad. Obama will use his rock star status, a bully pulpit, and a compliant, fawning media to further discredit and destroy a hapless GOP that is leaderless and in disarray. Never mind that all this revenue will be coming from an already strapped middle-class, unemployment will spike upward and the stock market will tank. There’s no price too high to achieve the Left’s dream of a socialist utopia (so long as someone else is doing all the suffering.)
