    THAT'S the missing link.

    They can tank the economy and blame obama but unless people believe them, they can't win.

    I say, good luck with that. I don;t think americans are buying that. why? because shit was WAY better from 2009 through 2010 until the GOP took congress in 2011. And they've been so OPEN about it, so brazen, that no one has been able to ignore it. from the debt ceiling talks that resulted in a credit downgrade to this latest tax hike debacle, the people don't seem to be blaming the president right now. Hi numbers are up, their numbers are down. And the president isn't even in proper campaign mode yet.

    They miscalculated. Yes, tank the economy and blame the president. BUT unless the people believe their version of the story, it still wont work. That's what they forgot.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

      The Republicans will still choose the best strategy for them.  If their best strategy to win the white house is to demand more concessions in exchange for the payroll tax cut, then that is what they will do.

      It does not matter that it is not certain that people will believe them.  As long as that strategy looks better than cooperating with Obama, they will follow it

      But this leaves you no defence against Feior's next spell - a blast which strikes you full on, incinerating you instantly
