...you let taxes go up and cuts expire knowing you can not get what you want ideologically, knowing also that in 2013 you can vote for "tax cuts" which will actually be net revenue increases.
Norsquistian logic in the face of reality.

Did anybody else notice the irony of all those Republicans voting AGAINST a tax cut for everybody making under $400k? Including the entire R Tennessee House delegation? All this time they've been yelping about not letting taxes go up on the rich, but they were willing last night to let them go up on everybody.

OTOH, deep bipartisan support for making 98% of the Bush tax cuts permanent. I call that a win, and I'm glad you guys are on board.
The current center-right Republican President just beat the ears off the Bolsheviks, got his primary opponent for 2016 to laud him and curse the Bolsheviks over Sandy, got a certified right-wing Long Island loon to freak out about Sandy too, got on the plane to his island hideaway (complete with volcano), and smoked a cig and popped a beer. He then decided that beating the shit out of these losers over the debt ceiling was next, plus extending the better fiscal option of continuing budget resolutions with evil henchman from Nevada. In 2014, he comes out of the Washington lair, reminds lots of people that these morons acted the way they did, pulls a Dem majority for 2015.
Now, if he asks for 3.5 trillion in stimulus this year, I might be happy with him, but since negotiated with himself and lost the Bush tax cuts fight, I do not hold out hope.
