The next time a GOP-er tells you that we can't raise taxes on the Job Creators, that we can't give hand-outs to the Unemployed -- simply tell them:
Don't be a Grinch! Quit trying to hurt everyone in Whoville.
You will be in good company if you do.
The president caricatured Republicans as the “Grinch” for failing to support a proposal in his $447 billion jobs bill to extend and expand last year’s payroll tax cuts, which expire in December.Obama to GOP: Don’t Be a ‘Grinch,’ Extend Payroll Tax Cuts“Tell them, ‘Don’t be a Grinch.’ Don’t vote to raise taxes on working Americans during the holidays.

The Grinch is a fictional character created by Dr. Seuss. He first appeared as the main protagonist in the 1957 children's book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
The devious, anti-holiday spirit of the character has led to the name "Grinch" becoming a term used to describe a person opposed to Christmas time celebrations or to someone with a coarse, greedy attitude.
The Grinch may be fictional -- the GOP's determination to protect only the interests of the super rich, isn't ...
This might be an idea with legs: The GOP is just the Party of Grinch.
There is even a Facebook page for the Grinch Only Party:
Facebook: Grinch.GOP -- The Grinch = Republican
And when the stingy cap fits ... I say Let's make them wear it.

Hmmm, that seems to be the philosophy of the 1% uber-class too.
Well long as they, the Job Creators, have their "Grey Poupon" ...
Then I guess, Everything must be just fine down in Whoville, isn't that right, Mr Grinchy Grinch GOP-ers?
