View Diary: White House shoots down House Republican proposal on fiscal cliff (135 comments)

  •  Very astute of the WH to characterize (12+ / 0-)

    the GOP proposal as a retread of Romney's proposal.

    GOP looks somewhat more likely than before to cave on the tax issue as there are some who seem to be saying that they can't sustain the political damage of being blamed for holding middle class tax cuts hostage just to fight for tax cuts for the wealthy.  However, I don't think Boehner is tough enough to get that kind of vote through this lame duck session.  Hence the political paralysis that Geithner pointed out on the Sunday talk shows.

    Obama should just keep being patient and consistent.  He will win this debate and the GOP would be better off giving in on this one and regroup.
