    Aside from the fact that Obama has, predictably, caved in to Repubs, he is simply fooling himself or us or both that the temporary extension for the rich will be temporary.  All it does it put off the issue.  Do you really think the Republicans are going to let the new, temporary cut for the rich expire in 2 years?  If you do, I have a public option for HCR I'd like to sell you.

    Maybe Obama is planning to be a one-termer and just wants to kick this can to the next guy.

        That's crap too.  I'm not the problem, Obama is the problem.  He gets knocked down and refuses to get up, asking, "Can I have some more?"  That he is still talking compromise and bipartisanship is simply pathetic.

          read Obama's weekly address? Where is he capitulating? And you do sound like a shill for the RNC.

          •  We'll see what he does. (0+ / 0-)

            Yes, I'm a shill for the RNC.  You caught me.
