The Republicans need to understand something. The political reality is that no matter what happens, they are going to be blamed for obstructionism. No matter what kind of compromise is worked out, it will never be enough for some liberals, including those in the media. The Republicans should strap on their hard hats, knowing full well they are about to encounter rough sailing. They are not likely to come through this unscathed. They should choose their path forward carefully.

Absolutely true, but not the way the author means. Republicans need to stop worrying about damage control and take a stand. If it means shutting government down by locking the purse, so be it. There is nothing we can do to keep from being vilified - might as well stop worrying about "image" among the unclean and start worrying about doing what is right for the Nation and the People.

Ding ding ding ! Go over the cliff and raise taxes on everyone - cut spending, increase payroll tax, end unlimited unemployment insurance, risk our security with defense cuts and let the obama care taxes kick in. None of these are good things. However, it is too easy for many voters to support the welfare state while they aren’t kicking in. I believe even the libtards say Solyndra Schmolyndra once there are economic consequences to THEM when they support retarded candidates, programs and policies. Sure we’ll be vilified but who cares if it means we can turn the ship around ? Make them pay now for all this they’ve wrought.
