    He's Caved Already!
    He's not exclusively sticking to the weasle line
    "and that means asking the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more in taxes",...
    which doesn't prevent him letting the top two Bush tax rates expire (you know, the ones that cast $960Billion over 10 years)

    Before the election, he explicitly said that we can't extend these because we can't afford them.  Now he's laying the ground to let Boehner offer some pittance in "revenue increases" from the rich and say he's won.

    Just bet your bottom dollar that PBO will give at least $3 cuts for every $1 revenue AND that the revenue will be MUCH MUCH less than the $960Billion he leaves with the rich in the form of permanently lower tax rates.

    The cake is baked and we'll all be choking on it by Christmas.  It's what this president does to his most ardent supporters every time. He knows he can because the alternatives are sooooo much worst.
