Funny. They loved it when it was the foundation of Romney's mysterious economic plan.

Burn GOP. Now you are farked if you do and farked if you don't. I don't think Obama will give you a life line this time. You either going to have independents and some Republicans serious pissed at you or have all those on the far right pissed at you.

Or as they like to call it, the Heritage Foundation.

Because they thought Romney was lying and would just rubber stamp the Bush tax cuts again. Because deficits only matter to them when a Democrat is on office.

The Republicans want two things: to continue funneling money to the richest among us, and to make Obama and Democrats look bad.

Whatever happens to the rest of the country is not an issue.

Today's GOP is the greatest threat the United States has ever faced.

What happened to the reasonable revolt where some 'pubs were all "We should probably raise taxes"? They seemed to be gaining steam last week and now all of a sudden, bam! Back to square one of pure intransigence and ridiculous hyperbolic lies.

A decade of historically low tax rates have given us a booming economy, low unemployment, and record budget surpluses.

This is the PUSHBACK. There is a knockdown drag-out fight for the soul of the Republican Party right now. I cannot solve their problems, Mr. Lebowski, only they can.

Boehner is a RINO! Take him down, Tea Party, take him down!

The Bush Tax Cuts, AKA the "Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001" and the "Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003," led to neither Economic Growth nor Jobs and Growth. THIS POLICY DOES NOT WORK. If you are still a member of the Republican Party, it is time to GTFO.

Demonized by the left, called to task by the right, guaranteed to receive the brunt of the blame no matter which side wins...man, I wouldn't take John Boehner's job for the world right now. In fact, if I did have to take his job, I would probably cry at the drop of a hat just thinking about it.

Gold plated health care, for life.

Can perform a number of useless high paying services after leaving office.

You're right, the guy has it rough.

Also, how can anyone expect Obama to be able to negotiate in good faith with Boehner when it's not clear that Boehner speaks for his party?

Well Pelosi is working on going around him. She is looking for Republican to make a deal without him.

His negotiating with someone who can't even get the votes from his own party is BS.
 
2012-12-04 07:25:53 PM
I suspect this is an effort to encourage Obama and Geitner to move off of the hard line they've taken by making it appear that the Republican offer represents the maximum amount of compromise possible.

nmrsnr: Also, how can anyone expect Obama to be able to negotiate in good faith with Boehner when it's not clear that Boehner speaks for his party?



"Where's your paper?" [Cantor] asked angrily.

Obama snapped back: "Frankly, your speaker has it. Am I dealing with him, or am I dealing with you?"

July 12th, 2011
 
2012-12-04 07:31:04 PM
Tim Phillips, the president of the Koch Brothers-backed group Americans for Prosperity, said Monday that Boehner's proposal "leaves conservatives wanting."

"By placing an $800 billion tax hike on the table, Republican Leaders are engaging in little more than pre-emptive capitulation," Heritage Action -- the political wing of the Heritage Foundation think tank -- said in talking points provided Monday to its followers. "The latest Republican proposal to President Obama is nothing but bad policy and a highly questionable negotiating tactic."

Every time Obama moves, the GOP shiats on him. He may have learned that lesson by now. He's pretty smart.

He just took 4 TeaTards out of their committee slots, so the war appears to be on.

Or they can let the country belly-flop off the fiscal cliff and have everyone pissed off at them! 

Poll: GOP to get more blame if fiscal cliff talks fail

FTFA:

If there's no deal, according to the poll, by a 53 percent-27 percent margin people say Congressional Republicans will be more at blame than Obama, with 12 percent saying both sides should be equally blamed. Among independent voters, 52 percent would blame Republicans and 21 percent would point fingers at the president.

That was the bolded option.

Either way the are going to have a big portion of their voters pissed at them unless Obama caves completely on taxes.

They continue to believe they can convince Americans to agree with them rather than realize they need to adapt to what Americans want.

Dinosaurs now.

But if Republican leaders do strike a deal with Obama, rank-and-file GOP lawmakers might publicly break with their leaders for fear of alienating constituents and incurring a primary challenge in 2014.

I can't wait to see who they bring as primary challengers.
