  •  Remind me, what did Obama do with the Bush (9+ / 0-)

    tax cuts?

    He made them permanent! How is that the fault of the Republican Party? Their intransigence sets records each day, but they couldn't force him to sign those tax cuts into permanency. They couldn't force him to sign the sequester into law - he could have opted for the confrontation, but chose to back down.

    While the Republican Party has stood in the way of any meaningful progress, the few occasions that Obama could have acted on his own (for instance, by vetoing any extension of the tax cuts) he chose to go along with them.

    Much like the NSA surveillance - begun under Bush, but greatly expanded under Obama.

    Now, call this Australian social democrat whatever you want - but "Paulite" is far enough from the truth to make me laugh at your ignorance and desperation.
