Go over the cliff? Republicans were obstructionists.
Go with Obama's plan and continue with trillion dollar deficits? It's still Bush's fault.
There is NO reason why Republicans shouldn't hold out for the deal they want. That doesn't mean that they shouldn't compromise, but they sure as hell should get some meaningful spending reforms in exchange for these asinine tax increase proposals.
They'll take credit from me if they actually let it happen. The fiscal cliff is the real "grand bargain," and filled with plenty of good stuff.
Ehyeh asher ehyeh.
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
