  •  And your mentality allows them to get away (0+ / 0-)

    with this. The Republicans are powerless to go after the social safety net alone. They only succeed with the cooperation of Obama and Democrats like Nancy Pelosi.

    •  I know you think it does (0+ / 0-)

      but then again considering that I think your mentality has you jumping at every shadow not to mention is fundamentally unfair and petty, we're just not going to agree.

      At some point we're going to need GOP votes to get legislature passed (in part because the 'true beleivers' sat out 2010) which means we're going to have to give some where

      Unless you'd rather we just grind the government to a halt, let taxes go up on the middle class etc etc?

      •  Austerity either way. (0+ / 0-)

        The "fiscal cliff" is bullshit and this "crisis" was artificially created last year by our representatives in Washington. It's Shock Doctrine at work. Bill Black gave a most succinct account of how both the right AND THE LEFT are being played.

        Of course, people who voted for Obama/Pelosi, etc. don't want to face this reality and that's understandable. It's really difficult to put your trust in a political figure, and then find out that what you believed about them wasn't true. It's easier to go on pretending.
