    have, finally, been forced to say what they want.  And it's as bad as we knew it would be , unlike what the rest of the country thinks.

    I read the transcripts from daily briefings.  After the Sandy Hook Massacre pulled everyone's attention from the fiscal curb, there started to be a new meme building:  Obama was being arrogant, ignoring the Republicans's efforts to negotiate, he won and he ignored their offerings.

    What?, you say, when did they offer anything?

    Well never, but that's not how the story will play January 2nd.   After the curb is tripped over, the media will cover every job lost in defense, every over-burdened middle class taxpayer, every unemployed person who's penniless after losing unemployment benefits.  Will the Republicans get blamed?  Will Gregory mention that they offered zero plans?  No, Obama will be blamed for getting uppity over his win.

    Gun control is a huge issue, but right now our country needs us to keep telling the truth about the Republicans or we are FUCKED in January, and in 2014.  The media groundwork is already in motion.  Write LTEs, call Congress, make noise.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
