    of course, i'm also a cpa, with a specialty in tax law, and reasonably cognizent of the politics surrounding it. i doubt i'm unique in this regard. how is it that these polls seem to target the mentally/emotionally halt & lame?

    unless obama and the dems suffer from terminal stupidity (always a possibility), they pretty much have the republicans by the short hairs (go ask your father, if you don't know what that means. :)). they literally have to do nothing, and the vast majority of people won't actually be affected for some time. in the interim, the dems propose a budget that extends the bush tax rates for all but the highest earners, and drop-kicks lots of corporate tax welfare. force the republicans into the public position of supporting either more tax breaks for the 1%, or higher taxes for the middle-class and poor. no doubt, that will go over very well with their tea party contingent. the hand extended across the aisle should be wielding a baseball bat.

    of course, that's just me, and i'm basically a prick by nature.
