  •  M-I-C Repubs pushing ending Bush Tax Cuts... (5+ / 0-)

    It's Grovers Tax Zombies vs the MIC War Pigs.  

    The belief is to give in on the Bush Tax Cuts and that will be enough of a "win" for the Obama Admin that the triggered cuts could be put off another year and folded into the tax overhaul 2013 budget debate.  

    It will be easy to cut taxes in the future, but it will be harder to increase DoD spending while still running a deficit and cutting elsewhere - especially when fighting no wars.  

    It's a tactical retreat, lose this battle, but win the Grand Bargain war.

    •  That does make a lot of sense. Sure hope (0+ / 0-)

      Obama, Reid and Pelosi and smarter than me and see through this "revised" stance quicker than I.  If not, at least JJ is around to open their eyes.
