It’s a good deal

January 2, 2013

For all the reasons I’ve mentioned. You don’t get to dictate terms when you control just one branch of Congress, and 60 percent of Americans support the other guy’s position.

The Bush Tax Cuts are now (mostly) permanent. We could have taken credit for that, if we’d been shrewd enough to trumpet it.

Now on to the sequester and debt ceiling battles, where we have a much better hand.

    …..

    Doesn’t matter what cards they hold, the GOP will fold.

    A commenter on Hot Air suggested it is time for the military to arrest Obama and most of Congress.

    You can’t play the hand if you lack the balls.

    Now is the time to come together and support Speaker Boehner and the RINOs.

    “It’s a good deal” reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode “It’s a good life” where everyone has to go around thinking happy thoughts or the little boy will make them disappear into the corn field.

    Keep telling yourself “it’s a good deal”. Maybe they’ll let you survive a little while longer.

    I hope you are right-
    All in all, is a shitty turn of events, and does nothing to alleviate the massive debt problems. Politically, at least it will be more difficult for Obama to blame everyone else when the economy collapses again…..thats not a silver lining, more like glitter- but at least it is something.

    We do have more cards to play in the coming battles, and all these new regulations and taxes, maybe America will wake up…..but I doubt it.
