  •  GREAT visuals! There's a meme here for the Dems (3+ / 0-)

    It took the Reich wing, what, less that 24 hours to start working the story about the Fiscal Cliff and pinning it on President Obama. The markets are already reacting and also I just heard my VA gov McDonnell (R wannabe 2016) ordered state agencies to make budget contingency plans.

    All of this talk about the GOP evolving is less likely to happen if they can damage the Democratic Party brand for 2014 and 2016. And I believe that's part of the strategy.

    Remember that sequestration came about as a deal when Congress (yeah Boehner and McConnell, we're lookin' at you!) refused to raise the debt ceiling without some kind of austerity-infused budget trade-off. That's why the visuals in this diary are powerful and should be deployed with wild abandon!

    We know President Obama isn't exactly good at getting out ahead of a story or meme and bending the narrative to reflect facts. These visuals can help!!

    Warning: That light at the end of the tunnel just might be an oncoming train.
