    Repubs are only digging themselves their own hole by insisting on and equating the need for major benefots cuts to entitlement and other programs to the need for raising top tax rates. The need and justication for the former is much lesser than the need and justication for the latter, and, of greater political moment, the constituency for the former is much greater than the constituency for the latter.

    Both on policy and political terms--let alone moral ones--the numbers simply do not add up for Republicans. Hopefully Obama & Dems know it, and are basing their strategy on it. They need only hold firm, and things are bound to turn their way eventually. And, I believe, a lot sooner than we might think.
