“Sen. Mark Begich (D), who is running for reelection in Alaska, another red state, agreed that a final deal to avoid the fiscal cliff will have to raise income tax rates on the nations wealthiest families.”
Palin should go after that seat.
What exactly is a “centrist Democrat?”
The Republicans ought to offer the Democrats a clean bill with no amendments in the House allowing Obama to have the tax hikes he wants. The Democrats can pass it in the House, Republicans can vote present, then let the senate vote. Then they can negotiate over the rest of the Bush tax cuts, spending and the debt ceiling. Its the best they can do.
GOP is going to get creamed in 2014 at this rate
“Centrist Democrat” — LOLOL.
The Republicans and conservatives have got to start calling the tax raise on the “rich” Marxist class warfare, and define it through the words of Lenin and Marx.
If you define the enemy and his tactics, you make it easier to get people to support your side. Plain and simple.
Take a Marx/Lenin quote and juxtapose it with one by Obama, Geitner, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, etc.
Making a list, checking it twice, show that the Dems are dirty as red lice.
Don’t let the enemy define himself or you. Get there “the firstest with the mostest”.

The republican party is doing a “WeekEnd at Bernies”..
Its quite dead you know?....
Many/most republicans are considering if they haven’t already left the party..
2014 may be the mouse that farted for the republicans..
Why all the public posturing and handwringing? The Democrats control the WH and the Senate. That’s 2/3s of the lawmaking trioka.
Let Obama propose and Reid pass the Obama budget as presented by Geithner. Then let the House vote on it.
Does any rational person really think Americans want what Obama proposes. The last Obama budget died in the Senate 99-0. Can’t the GOP get thicker skin?
We don’t need more or higher taxes. We have a spending problem at the local, county, state and national level.
I will never vote for dem or repub again. What difference does it make? They get elected then do whatever the hell they want. Both parties!
What backlash? If there was no backlash in 2012, what possible reason is there to believe there will be serious changes for the better in 2012?
