This is the absolutely predictable scenario if the GOP holds fast to its" promise": Obama will happily breach the cliff and propose a restoration of Bush era rates for the (actual)96% who fall beneath his obviously arbitrary income benchmark. HE will now be the tax cutter. And since approximately 60% of the voting public has already indicated they will hold the GOP primarily responsible, the political outcome of that vote is pretty clear (particularly when we observe a 10% stock market loss in progress).. I am a hard right conservative, but it is apparent to me that the conservative babbling class is just about as incompetent politically as the Republican party.
