  •  So, it's all about slogans. Why not a slogan fix? (0+ / 0-)

    When it comes to the fiscal cliff, we went down the rabbit hole a long time ago.  Since the whole thing is a bit of marketing magic, why not a marketer's magic fix - as long as there is no special austerity magic added.  I can get behind slogans claiming that we are now all in this together and the upward adjustment in tax rates on the wealthy (I'm OK with $250,000 as the cutoff) have bipartisanship written all over them.  A revision to the sequesters, even for Defense, may be OK too.  Live to fight another day.  The danger here comes when bullshitters start to believe their bullshit.  Let Obama and Boehner go Ta- Dah, and were done.
