Well-
I am sure that a last minute deal, hammered out behind closed doors between Obama, Boehner and Reid, will be straightforward and greatly beneficial to all Americans!

Do I really need to include the sarc tag?

They’re saying no deal but an understanding. sticking point is tax rates. Saying the last meeting was “constructive”. Sounds like the GOP caved but not enough info. GOP should go for the 400k limit Obummer offered previously.

I bet the reason he left Hawaii early was NOT due to the fiscal cliff, but health reason: the MiL voted him off the island.

Sounds like the onus is going to be on Reid to get something they can vote on.

[Reid has been the obstructionist for years.]

WOW

Even CNN is saying his calling for an up-or-down vote doesn’t work in Washington.

They are running out of venues to discuss it. They have run out of time and places to go for a deal.

Translation: O didn’t impress CNN/Crowley in his spiel.

Obama’s voice- Harry Reid’s words.

I bet Harry even picks and chooses the men Obama can date...

He’s late

Just getting back from Hawaii, he must be exhausted, give him a break.

That and - he's on CPT.
