    ...with the legislation Congress sends to his desk.  If he gets a bill that is an across-the-board extension, his options are 'All' or 'Nothing'.

    The Republicans are going to force his hand.  They're not going to send him a bill that decouples the the middle class from the top 2%.  

    It's gonna be the first order of business of the new Congress, and that's the only advantage he has -- that it happens early and he and the Congressional Dems have time to frame the issue before the 2012 election.  He should veto it and put the ball right back in their court.

      This is Obama we're talking about, not George W. Bush.  Much as I hated Bush, I have to admit now that he had some strong characteristics.  His goals were flawed, but his method of achieving them was not.  

      Don't like XOM and OPEC? What have YOU done to reduce your oil consumption? Hot air does NOT constitute a renewable resource!
