    We need to look at this as halftime not the end of the game.  The election was a tough half for us, but we need to get our heads and our spines right back into the game on this most fundamental economic issue.  For us to allow this hostage taking to succeed would result in the perpetuation of the Bush trickle down economic theories that was one of the two most damaging mistake of his mistake laden Presidency.  Bush's trickle down policy should be buried.

    President Obama's task is a tough one given the Republicans outrageous irresponsibility on this subject.  He knows the importance of continuing demand in the economy and that is why he is pushing to keep the middle class tax cuts in place.  But it is my belief that when Americans come to understand who is standing between them and a tax cut, John Boehner, we can win this fight.  There are some things worth fighting over, this is one of them.
