There is no way to avoid the fiscal cliff so the GOP needs to find a way to gracefully place the blame on the President. The President from day one has grossly overstepped his powers and has pushed the country over more than just the cliff. I think it's even too late for a coup d'etat because the country is broken into thirds. One third doesn't care, one third likes getting free stuff, and one third want's a good honest days work. Where the GOP failed this last election was to get the attention of the third of the country that doesn't care. But now you will have Hilary Clinton in 2016 and the DEMS will further finish off this country into a Communism in which it stands. Even the Russian President Putin says we are now a communist nation.
