      don't like the idea of falling off the "cliff", and especially the potential recession (worldwide recession?) that would follow if the Republicans continue to refuse to deal on taxes, replacing the defense cuts in the sequester, or if they take hostages when the debt limit is reached again.

      The WSJ may lean heavily Republican, but the name of their game is short-term profits = huge CEO bonuses.  The tea party "no more spending ever" game works against that.

      "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" applies here, I think.
