This is one reason why obama and reid don't want a deal. If they go over the cliff, it's good for them and bad for the GOP.

Heh, close enough. People will blame the GOP no matter what. If the leadership had the balls to do what the NRA Chairman (or President) did and use the MSM to blunt most of the attach, the gap would narrow somewhat. I wonder when the light bulb will go off in the GOP?

Why is that? Must be the MSM. How can they control 2/3 of the government but get less than half the blame?

What do you do when nearly half have had their brains scooped out and replaced with Jello pudding? Does no one even look at the numbers? They’re not that hard to track down...

We went over the fiscal cliff early in 2009. This is just a bunch of democrat looksee-pidgin.

As time goes by more people are blaming Obama in these polls. So, unless a majority blame the GOP, I don’t necessarily thin this plays out like Obama intended.

My GOD far too many people in this country are f-ing stupid beyond belief. Of course the election results prove that.

I blame the government in general. They created the mess.

A couple of weeks of frantic media assaults will get that 44% up to 116%.

The Dems are not going to get near the mileage they hope with this. The GOP House members are pretty much elected in districts that know the score and dislike 0bama. The unknown is how this might affect the statewide races for Senate in 2014. But there are more Dems up than GOP. If blame just falls on Congress generically, the Dems may get hurt more.

So why not go over the fiscal cliff? Obama and the MSM have convinced the left that the debt has been caused because we’ve got an income problem. So let’s raise everyone’s taxes and “solve” the deficit problem. Then when the debt ceiling issue comes up it’s already fixed. Democrats will have their income. Leave the debt ceiling where it is. Can’t have it both ways,.

A new Speaker can repair some of the damage next month, by proposing that all tax cuts be made retroactive.

Time to throw all of these polls in the nearest trashcan. If Repubicans are influenced by them, replace them. VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCEs, not some stupid poll.

This falls sqarely on 0bama and Reid. And whoever came upp with that stupid-a$$ supercommittee.

NO BUDGET IN 4 YEARS...Get a budget and figure out where to cut it. Until then, especailly those Republicans..quite worrying about the next 2-4 years and your own butts.Worry about ours for once.

And yes, I am perfectly willing for a 2-4 year gridlock to keep even one more piece of bad legislation away from a vote. Executive order? File a freaking impeachment paper for God’s sake. Fight!

Better than I thought. The gap may close in the coming days. I don’t see it widening as Republicans are the first to get blamed.

The media’s job is to promote communism and defeat the GOP. They serve no other purpose.

Happy New Year
