It was an unnecessary deal. And worse than that, we had an opportunity to “do the right thing”... but our rep leaders failed us.

Heres the biggest advantage to buying these extra two months: Obamas approval ratings can and almost certainly will go down. Why? Try a trillion dollars (ten-year numbers) in new tax hikes as part of ObamaCare that just kicked in ten hours ago. Conservatives will have two months now to highlight these and other parts of ObamaCare that should prove tremendously unpopular, and to lay the blame entirely on Obama and the Dems who voted for this monstrosity. Plus, there are all sorts of communications strategies and tactics that conservatives now have time to prepare and implement that werent necessarily available to them in the past seven weeks.

Never going to happen!

(The good thing is that Obama lacks moderation and will go too far.)
I love the optimism but truly the only way this is a good deal is if it forces the Rats to cut spending in the negotiations on the debt ceiling or the coming budgets...
1. It is bipartisan
2. How possibly can Obama go back to saying the rich need to pay their fair share when he agreed that this is now the fair share.
3. This tiny bit of revenue does nothing to stop the trillion dollar deficits.
Now is the time for Republicans to gather their forces and go on the attack for serious spending reductions. Force the rats to address the debt and call them lockstep Marxists that are destroying the economy for everyone because they cannot work across the aisle to end the massive spending and entitlement mentality that is destroying America...

Differential taxation based on income level is a Marxist concept, period.
I really used to like The American Spectator, but they have supped of the GOP-e Kool-Aid of late, and are no longer on my preferred reading list.

Marxism is never a good deal (for anyone).
Cut the frickin’ spending already!!

It happened exactly as I expected.
In order to do "something", republicans caved and agreed on tax hikes now, in return for spending cuts "later", but those cuts will never materialize.

Or as the president has already said, until next year.

Looks like your liberals just caved.
Kiss your party goodbye. Because they left you without a kiss, a reach-around, or even any lubrication.
And in retrospect, his Plan B would have been a better solution than we are faced with today.
This is about the only part of the column I disagree with. Plan B would have been passed before the Bush tax cuts expired and therefore would have given the rats legitimate claim to smugly say the Republicans agreed with them to raise taxes on "the rich".
The fact that the final deal happened AFTER the expiration of the Bush tax cuts - - the rates returned to Clinton-era rates on New Years day - - means that there were actually nothing but tax CUTS in the legislation. And rather than the rats being able to claim that the Republicans agreed with them to raise taxes on "the rich", now the Republicans can legitinately claim that the rats are the ones who engage in class warfare and want only to "soak the rich", etc.
It may seem like a matter of petty semantics, but in the blood war known as politics there is no such thing as petty semantics. Now, any future TV ad that claims the Republicans raised taxes will be easily discredited as a lie. Had Plan B passed, such an ad would be legitimate - - slimy, perhaps, but technically accurate.
