I keep saying it: until the electorate in the US changes, then anything else is irrelevant. Conservatives could come up with the most cunning scheme ever devised by man to block X measure or score Y political point, but it won't change this country one iota. The electorate needs to change, and until they feel some real pain, network TV is just FAR too entertaining for them to get off the couch and get aggravated about the state of the country. Let it burn. It's going to happen and the last thing we need is Republican fingerprints on the wreckage.

If Republicans don't mount a better opposition to Obama, their fingerprints may as well be all over the destruction.

President Obama's latest news conference was further confirmation that his voracious appetite for spending was not satisfied but whetted by the fiscal cliff deal, which he views as an appetizer.

We were told that the GOP achieved a coup in the fiscal cliff negotiations because they lured Obama into an agreement to lock in the Bush tax rates except for the highest-income earners. Never mind that Obama agreed to no spending cuts or entitlement reform after demanding a "balanced approach" to deficit reduction; they told us he'd be forced to address those matters in a couple of months in the debt ceiling...
