The GOP knows darn good and well that taxes have to go up regardless of who is in the white house. It also knows very well that the wealthy must pitch in, rather than just pull out, just like those on the bottom rung of the economic ladder must.(Business owners have known this for years also, and the smart ones prepared accordingly.) I believe the President had both of the last elections in the bag, and that you are exactly right: The republicans elected this President - did anyone really believe the GOP EVER intended to preside over the cleanup of Bush's mess? That's what Democrats are for.<quoted text>
Remember Jeebus? First Responder to this entire disgusting thread? Turns out The Republicans set up the whole Fiscal Cliff thingie (Jeebus quoted thusly "they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized") and now are trying to wiggle out of their own petard.
The Republicans managed to re-elect this black president. Period.
That is, thanx to their incredibly painful-to-watch missteps and general obstructionist bullshit.
Turns out people DO care, not because they wanted a black president. Period. So what do they care about?
The black president. Period. who got RE-elected as the most viable candidate, running on his own record/performance since 2008. To quote Paul Harvey - "And that's the rest of the story."
Hey Jeebus, how's that Period thing workin' out fer ya?
Mitt Romney was a patsy, destined, practically GURANTEED to fail, by the GOP.
I knew this 6 months ago. Looks like you've also had your eyes open.
Good for you.
