“Like it or not, Obama just won re-election. If Boehner wants the Republicans to maintain control of the House come 2014 he has to sound concilatory. Otherwise he risks looking mean and spiteful. We need to hand over ownership of this terrible economy to the Dems. Do we really want to be blamed for going over the fiscal cliff?”

I’m willing to give Boehner the benefit of the doubt and let him play this hand. We’ll know, shortly, whether this is a chess move or a sell out - then we act. I think we are better served by a different Speaker, maybe Ryan.

My only point is that his congratulatory statements are almost mandatory, unless you are setting up to get your party kicked out of office in 2014 that is.

I suspect that there will be compromises made and I will be quite disgusted as a result. In reality, however, we are going to need to give some ground in order to win in 2014 and 2016. Otherwise, we will be branded obstructionists and the Dems will hang any failures around our neck!!
