    I listened to a "moderate" on early MSNBC yesterday and he was talking about how the Dem's and Pres want to go over the fiscal cliff so Pres can then "swoop in and be the HERO by proposing tax cuts to middle class" ..... once again the concern is with the Pres doing something that may reflect positively on him or the Dem's, not on what is good for the country.
    I often wonder what will be said in 30-50 years about this time period when politicians not only drove the country into the ditch but refused to let it come out of the ditch unless there was a political benefit  ..... the entire country at the mercy of a bunch of politicians, playing with millions of peoples lives and futures for their own amusement/benefit.  How is this different than most 3rd world countries that are controlled by a small number of  elite, wealthy, power-hungry mad men?
