We will go over the fiscal cliff. Then, after about two months of Americans experiencing reduced paychecks, Obama will propose tax “cuts”.
They will then become the “Obama tax cuts” and the words “Bush tax cuts” will never be uttered again.
Obama is not going to budge on this until March.
You are probably about right. The left is so much better at playing the game than the conservatives are. Most conservatives still want to cling to the fallacy that the voters know what they are doing and the conservatives don’t know what to do if they should ever accept just how stupid the mass of voters are. Conservatives don’t really understand how to appeal to total stupidity but the left has done everything to create and promote that stupidity and they know perfectly how to use it to gain power.
If anyone notices that I don’t include myself in either group it is because even though I am very conservative I have abandoned the notion that voters at large know what they are doing, it has been made perfectly obvious that they do not. No one who has a clue about reality ever even considered voting for Bill Clinton, let alone Obama.
This is the trap of elected government, you CANNOT allow anyone over a certain age to vote regardless of any other considerations, it leads to what we have right now. We could ask villages all over the country to pick their favorite idiot and send him to Washington, name the best looking idiot as leader and we would have something very much like what we have now, it might even be better.
