anna, whining about the media is a popular emotional ritual here and on talk radio but it never won a single battle against Dems.
I been posting over and over here the past week or so,
the Republicans in congress have to quit acting stupid and fight just like Dems do, to win.
First thing, is pass an extension of the tax cuts for just the first $250K of income in the House and send it to the Senate and then go on all TV stations saying that you protected the middle class, crisis over.
The reason why Obama can get away with claiming that Rs are holding the middle class hostage to the rich is that they (Republicans) actually think that them holding back on passing those specific tax cuts by themselves is a chip in their favor to use against O. This is utterly stupid thinking and it is EXACTLY what Obama wants them to do.
Then make a commercial with all the clips of Dems calling for us to go over the cliff and use it to crush Dems with in January, and repeat their words on all the talk shows. 'Dems want us to go over, they keep saying it'
Jeeze, why are Dems such strategic fighters and Rs such a pathetic losers?
FIGHT LIKE DEMS DO, TO WIN!
Here's an analysis
Why Republicans lose here (see #19)
Buffet came out and said the tax cuts should be for income earned over $500K
So extend the cuts up to $500K and call it the Buffet rule, crisis over,.
