    If he's not going to threaten to reject a bill that extends tax cuts for the rich, then what does any of this mean? I understand it sounds good and makes a logical, cohesive argument, but we're in a lame duck session! The Repubs are not going to bow down to points about the deficit, they are going to ram this through if the Dems don't fight back.

    Sorry, but I'm not buying any of this if he doesn't demand that tax cuts for the rich expire. Democrats lost because they didn't fight hard enough. If Obama didn't learn that Tuesday, he never will.

      He already told us a couple of days ago that he would fold on tax cuts for the rich.
