of course there is. Obama and the media will always come up with some new “hostage”. There was no tax deadline on the debt ceiling in 2011 and the GOP folded. The dems will go on and on about the threat of default and a recession and benefits being stopped and Boehner and McConnell will go running to Obama and Biden just as they did this time.
Do you honestly believe the GOP will get anything out of the nest debt ceiling deal? If so give me even one piece of evidence to support it?
Patience my friend. Obama is President. His “tax the rich” is off the table now. What does he have left? Tax the rich more? Do you think the public will put up with that sh8t for long? Debt ceiling fight is one chance. Next year budget is another chance. Build up to 2014 is the key here. Economy not growing, Obamacare hurting, Tax the rich wearing thin....all these will add up to more political power for our side. That is what will help craft outcomes to our favor.
plus nobody stands up for our side when obama says it’s republican’s fault leaving this to the last minute when he deliberately went to hawaii and blew the final days he could have been working on some deal to avert this at the last second?!? he wanted this to happen eactly like it did and the pubbies gave it all to him. they bent over and spread the cheks for him and even put the lube on.
