Projection.

When will the GOP learn - the last thing these clowns will do is negotiate in good faith. They are college radicals - they need to be dealt with as terrorists, rhetorically speaking.

Well, to be fair, if anybody knows “fairy dust” it would be the Obama WH.

Let it disappear then, and the House go home.

Or Boehner do the only thing he has ever done right before, go to has office, just not answer the phone. He can get tanked if he wants, as long as there’s there to keep him from Drinking and Dialing.

White House: Boehner's Counterproposal 'Magic Beans and Fairy Dust'

Dean: Boehner Counteroffer is 'Best Deal' Dems are going to get

House Republicans Cave: “the Republican counteroffer, to the extent it can be interpreted from the hazy details now available, is a dud. It is utterly unacceptable. It is bad policy, bad economics.”

Do nothing. Let the Bush tax cuts expire. Let some of the 47% who don’t pay taxes get some skin in the game.

There will be no deal because Obama and the RATS do not want one. They know Republicans will be blamed for the resulting economic chaos, so that is what will happen.

The American public is stupid.

Obama can’t lose on this one. He gets tax increases and can blame Republicans. I think the only move for Republicans is to walk away and hang his azz in the breeze on the debt ceiling early next year. Obama is trying to make government bigger, he can’t risk anyone finding out it won’t be missed if it shuts down.

Business and markets have already priced in the tax rates expiring.

That can't be right... The Bush tax cuts only benefitted the rich so letting them expire shouldn't affect anyone that isn't rich. /s

Exactly. Can you believe republicans don’t go on every show, and say how can Obama want the dreaded, evil “Bush Tax Cuts” he opposed?

And then take it from there. Gee, maybe republicans do have some better ideas. There would be no tax cuts if left to Obama, etc.

Instead, they actually are letting Obama own the middle class tax cuts. They are soooo stupid.

my thoughts as well

He's alienated conservatives these past days, and now the people negotiating with him mock him - walk away and do it now, citing their childish response

Just walk away bonehead You won’t have to follow his excellency back home.

The empty house on my side of the aisle are not the same
You’re the one to blame

From deep inside the tears that I’m forced to cry
From deep inside the alcohol that I chose to hide

Just walk away bonehead, you don’t have to follow his excellency back home.
Now as the budget beats down upon my weary eyes
For me it will not fly

Just walk away bonehead, you don’t have to follow his excellency back home. Now as the rain budget deal beats down upon your weary eyes
For me it cries

Your name and mine inside a schedule upon a wall
Still finds a way to haunt me, though they’re so small

Just walk away bonehead, you don’t have to follow his excellency back home.
The empty congress on my side of the aisle are not the same

So, judging from their other ideas, if the administration thinks it is “magic beans and fairy dust”, does that mean they are in favor of it?

Seriously, these people think that Obamacare is an improvement over what we had, that our friends are our enemies and visa versa, and that all money and property belong to the government, which doles it out to its friends but not its enemies.

President “naked unicorn rider” Obama should be a firm believer in “magic beans and fairy dust”.

Bohner needs to stop what he is doing. He needs to hold a vote of the current "Bush" tax as it exists today. Pass it and give it to Dingy Harry Reid. The House needs to go home for Christmas. Call their effin' bluff. Make Obama come to him. If we go over the cliff we go over the cliff with Bohner having passed a bill and the dems in the senate not passing a bill.

If we go over the cliff and bad things happen Republicans get blamed.

If we go over the cliff and good things happen Obama gets credit.

If we pass an obama plan and things go well obama gets the credit.

If we go over the cliff and bad things happen the republicans get the blame.

That is the reality, so what prevents the republicans from doing what is best for the country.

The problem with that is the republicans would look bad and very petulant for doing this.

The only leverage Obama has are the middle class Bush cuts. So why not bite the bullet pass those and then if you do not come to the table we will not raise the debt ceiling. Take away their ammo and then see we compromised. That is the only way to make him own it so to speak.

Republicans most places are doing a good impression of “Weekend at Bernies” politically..
Voting died Nov 6th... Chicago style thuggs own any future elections..

Most intelligent republicans are re-thinking their loyalty’s..
2014 may be a popcorn fart for the republican party..
“Partys” seem to have become OBSOLETE..

Many republicans may NOT be republicans anymore..
BUT something “ELSE”... determined to “SMOKE” the HIVE...

To blow smoke at the collective... the HIVE.... to calm them down..
Killing the drones does nothing, you must capture and deal with the “QUEEN(s)”..

Both... Republican and Democrat QUEENS..
You must mask your political identity to be effective..
BOTH partys are HIVES... collectives.. with drones and Queens..

Smoke = burning hatred of the HIVE... concealed..

I do not agree that the republicans would look petulant. Otherwise we have been petulant since the bill was passed about 10 years ago. Obama is the one who said we should not raise taxes in a down economy. Well, here we are in a more down economy than when he said it. Obama would be the duplicitous one. Call his bluff. We have economic cancer. If we do not tackle it now it will complete the destruction.

The Republicans should do what those Wisconsin Dems did. Go into hiding. Leave DC and have no means to contact them. Let 0bama, Reid and Pelosi to deal with it with no Pubbie participation at all.

Don’t increase revenues. It’s really only recirculating debt anyway. Cut spending, instead.

You probably don’t want to do a GIS of “nude obama on unicorn”, because it is actually a popular artistic motif.

And no one seems to no why.

Tip for Boehner:

Let Obama admin fool you once; shame on them.

Let them fool you twice, trice, or a Trillion times, shame on you!

No deal - no increase in the debt limit. Time to face the music and live within our means. It will mean a couple years of struggle, then we come out of it much stronger and on a firm foundation for growth.

This generation needs to ‘man up’ and not pass our debt onto the next. People need to be held accountable for their actions and decisions.
