  •  Obama uses the GOP framing on the issue. (16+ / 0-)

    Repubs created this bullshit meme "cliff' and Obama happily regurgitates it.

    This is the wrong way to deal with a group that hates your living guts and wants nothing more than for you to be assassinated. I get so sick of his 'nice guy' attitude.

    If he played basketball with them, he'd let them win.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    •  He probably wouldn't let the Thugs (6+ / 0-)

      beat him at B-Ball. Mr. Obama understands that basketball has a winner and a loser.

      The problem is that he refuses to understand that politics is a lot more cutthroat than basketball... and class struggle more vicious still.

      In the face of all the evidence, the President continues to believe--or act as though he believes, anyway--his own "no red or blue America" rhetoric. His recent tough talk gave reason to hope he had finally learned that "bipartisanship" is a gaudy empty chimera that will never love him back, but these mano a mano meetings with the Orange One indicate he's learned nothing at all from his own recent history...

      and working Americans are doomed to repeat it.

      When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...
