  •  The taxes debate has turned against the GOP (1+ / 0-)

    This past election Mitt Romney was basically lying in the debates saying that he didn't want to cut taxes for the wealthy and big business, completely abandoning the trickle down argument. Similarly we saw the GOP in the fetal position on the payroll tax cut fight in 2012 and the fiscal cliff. Now they're still maniacal and will refuse to raise taxes and take the political hit, but the days of them using cutting taxes as a weapon are basically over.

    Where the GOP really does scare me, and where Dems, from Obama on down, have shown weakness, is on the spending side of the debate.
