I still believe we need to let Obama have his way and let the country see where this takes us. If we go over the cliff, the Pubs will get all the blame when the economy tanks next year (and it will regardless of the resolution of the "cliff"). Give him what he wants and let the Dems own this whole mess or otherwise we will be blamed and lose the house in 2014. Sticking to our no tax increase for the top 2% will put us in the position of appearing to favor the "rich" at the expense of the middle class and will lead to certain defeat and allow the Dems to continue to blame the Pubs for pandering to the rich (did anyone notice the Rasmussen generic party congress poll yesterday?). Look, I don't personally believe we are pandering to the rich but you know full well the cacophonous drumbeat from the left wing MSM will spin it that way, and successfully. This is our one and last chance to show the American people where this country is headed if they allow the Dems to hold the purse strings. Sometimes you have to amputate the leg to save the patient.
