The proposal that has been put forth by the White House is essentially what they proposed in their last budget which NO ONE, democrat or republican, voted for in the Senate.

Why is it unreasonable to have the expectation that the party in the position of leadership lead? Scant spending cuts when it is obvious to anyone with a brain that nothing will change without serious spending reform is absolutely ridiculous. The GOP will counter with unpopular, yet needed, spending suggestions (which undoubtedly will still be not enough) and be demagogued like hell for it. You know and I know this is the Chicago way. That is not leadership.
The Republicans brought this on themselfs. Obama would propose a plan in the middle and then have to move to the right to get a deal done. The R's have taught him to make your first offer a partisan one because a middle of the road one doesn;t get a deal done.

The last fiscal cliff Obama caved on everything. All spending cuts and no revenue. We can't cut our way out of this mess and Obama is not going to just go along with the Republican plan like he did last time.

Plus, I think it's safe to say that, no matter how much we appreciate Mr. Bob Dole (and we do), he doesn't hold a candle to steak and bjs.

Frankly, I'm looking forward to tomorrow which is Pie and BJ day, the holiday originally established by Charlemagne to acknowledge the Khazar kingdom's conversion to Judaism and the remarkable ability of Byzantine women to both bake and control their gag reflex.
