  •  I live in KY and Mitch is making a mistake ... (9+ / 0-)

    Just yesterday I had a conversation with someone on Facebook who is NOT an Obama fan and lives in coal country. They misunderstood a news story they heard on the radio and thoguht Obama was going to raise their taxes by $2,000. Needless to say they weren't happy.

    But once I explained the current situation on taxes where Obama wants the Republicans to work with Democrats to pass middle class tax cuts extensions immediately so the fight over wealthy tax cuts could be waged separately, there was no doubt about where they stood:

    "Well, this republican has time to make that deal with him. He's just not talking to the right ones"

    This is a losing battle for them. Period. As long as the word is spread properly that Republicans refused to extend middle class tax cuts immediately to coddle the wealthy, it's game over.

    •  But you see, their first inclination is to blame (3+ / 0-)

      President Obama and I am sure that Fox/Rush will be working nonstop to place the blame on the President.  It will take a massive education initiative for the truth to get out to the GOP base and GOP leaning independents.
