Dear @SpeakerBoehner, have you heard of The Christmas Strategy?

I am going to keep repeating The Christmas Strategy until someone in Republican circles listens:

I say call his bluff. If a deal which tackles deficits from both revenue and spending can be reached this month, great.

If not, pass a 90 day extension of current tax rates and whatever else is needed to postpone the “cliff,” and go home for Christmas to give time for a Grand Bargain which puts Democratic sacred cows on the table.

Let Harry Reid refuse to bring it to a vote, and Obama refuse to sign it. Their inaction will be the reason for taxes rising for everyone.

[strat-i-jee] Show IPA

noun, plural strat·e·gies.
Also, strategics. the science or art of combining and employing the means of war in planning and directing large military movements and operations.

the use or an instance of using this science or art.

skillful use of a stratagem: The salesperson’s strategy was to seem always to agree with the customer.

a plan, method, or series of maneuvers or stratagems for obtaining a specific goal or result: a strategy for getting ahead in the world.

I looked up this word just to educate myself. Knowledge is power afterall. During my studies I noticed that not one of these definitions apply to or describe the GOP or John Boehner in any way.

We should steer clear of fantasy.

The House of Represantitives should just Adjourn and go home, now I know they legally cannot adjourn for more than 3 days without approval of the Senate and Vice Versa, but since the Senate doesn’t care about the Law or the Constitution,( see Budget) DO IT ANYWAY, let them Cry all they want.

I think the author of this post and eyeamok are both right.

The “fiscall cliff” is a fantasy cooked up by the media and the Democrats to create mischief.

I’d favor a different strategy before Christmas. Do this: Put a massive tax cut on the table for ALL tax brackets to be effective 1/1/2013. Pass it quickly in the House. Then go home and sell the idea of putting more money in your pocket instead of the left’s class warfare (that will not solve problems) and never ending tax and spend. Hold the left accountable for holding more of your money until they approve it.

The sales pitch of course is part of the problem to what I propose. The strategy there is not B&W on the MSM. Rinse Prious needs to lead the charge (or resign, right now) and GOP elected leaders need to do likewise as well.

The American voters totally decided to let America fail. Nothing can be done to stop the momentum of the communists.
