    But that doesn't mean that he isn't engaging in kabuki here.  If the GOP take this deal, he doesn't veto and if they don't and come up with something later, all they have to offer him is some sort of middle class cut and they get anything else they want.  If they punt to January, people will see that deal and scream "Veto!" and he will again say that he's just trying to act in the best interests of the middle class.  He's not - in both deals he is just participating in the heist of wealth from the lower 99% to the top 1% of Americans, but he can pretend that he is "protecting" the middle class - just like George Bush did in enacting these cuts in the first place, btw.
