“They will take the blame no matter what they do or don’t do. They will be blamed for any bad outcome, fiscal cliff or not. If any good happens, Obama will get the credit. Those things are preordained. There is no way around them. So, the way I see it, the Pubs have nothing to lose by doing the right thing, which probably is to let it crash.”
At this point, as sorry as I am to say it, I agree with you and other posters who said this.
There are rough times ahead. May God bless America.
The irony is.. the GOP’s success in reigning Obama in after 2010 may have contributed to the tepidly improving economy, which was just enough to pull Obama over the finish line.
The GOP never got any credit for forcing welfare reform and balanced budgets on Clinton.
