Of course you're going to say Brooks should have stopped there because up to that point he seemed to be parroting the right wing. But then he goes on to affirm that the President faces an intractable GOP House. He also states;
"The fiscal-cliff talks are just the first chapter in this long process. In this first episode, the Democrats should get higher revenues from the rich (elections have consequences) and the Republicans should get some entitlement reform. But the main point is to lay the predicate for the bigger deals to come."
Are the Republicans going to listen to the American people who by a two to one margin want the wealthiest to pay more in taxes or are they going to be beholden to an unelected millionaire lobbyist, Grover Norquist.
The Wisdom of Crowds is nothing but a cheap consumer myth. Mass delusion is a common thread throughout history and we've seen it again with this past Presidential Election.

Americans did not want to engage the "European Problem" prior to WWI but Roosevelt dragged us in because of his vision - an individual's vision. Churchill was spurned by the British voters before and even after WWII. A considerable percentage of Americans believe in ghosts, UFOs, "Professional" Wrestling, winning lotteries and Liberalism. Go figure.

And here comes little PeeDePoop to prance about detailing the Wisdom of Crowds and how the Republicans should fall in line.

This makes you a Fool leading a Fool's Parade.

How Obama Shouldn’t Back Down Vs. the GOP
Elections are supposed to have consequences. So why does the GOP think it can strong-arm the president into compromising on entitlements without first giving in on taxes?
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/11...
Because elections DO have consequences and the democrats only carried the Senate - they didn't win the House.

Personally - I say Santa won fair and square - give him everything he wants and when he is finished wrecking the country it will be decades before another democrat could get elected dog catcher.

Congrats on the win - now do something. What happened to the holy Obamessiah bringing everyone together. Are his powers not up to the challenge on the very first issue? He won the election but he won't be able to do anything - kind of like the last four years. Sorry you had your hopes up about that shining new future - it appears it isn't coming.

<quoted text>Dems want everybody to believe that if they don't support Obama's policies, it's because they hate blacks. Same with Susan Rice. They say that the many black Republicans simply suffer from "white envy". They throw race into the equation every chance they get while accusing Republicans of being the "Party of Racists". Liberals are so full of sh't.
And the Boy Messiah played the race card against Hillary, remember?

He's Back..."Colorblind" Herman Cain Plays the Race Card Banjo While Stumping to Republicans in New Hampshire
Like an expert at Three-card Monte or a proverbial "race pimp," Herman Cain expertly dealt from the bottom of the "race card" deck during a fund raising appearance before Republicans in Nashua, New Hampshire. There, Cain explained that white people should not have buyer's remorse over the election of Barack Obama, America's first black President. Instead, Cain suggested that (white) voters should realize that:
"...there are some people who will say,'I'm not going to vote for another black guy because this one didn't work out.' "And my response is,'Well, what about those 43 white guys you put in there? How did they work out?' "Don't condemn me because the first black one was bad."
The levels of hypocrisy demonstrated by Cain and his supporters in this moment are so glaring as to almost not merit comment for they are so utterly obvious. Presumably, Conservatives are colorblind. Yet, race is central--as it was in his minstrelesque CPAC speech several weeks ago--to Cain's performance. Again, Herman Cain suggests that he is "one of the good ones." Ultimately, Herman Cain is not like "those other blacks over there."
For a political ideology that ostensibly embraces individualism and rejects the politics of group identity, grievance, and victimology, it is ironic then that Cain has to signal that he is a different type of black man from President Barack Obama. That Cain needed to explain to a Republican audience that black folks are individuals, and not a nameless, faceless, horde of negritude that all walk lockstep like zombies is frightening to say the least--and a damning indictment of those that Cain would call political allies.
