  •  What is gained by kicking the can? (5+ / 0-)

    Nothing is done, the GOP is rewarded for it's nihilistic obstruction and the Obama agenda is stalled for another year.  They're RUNNING OUT THE CLOCK ON YOUR DAMNED PRESIDENCY!  

    The GOP want to kick this can down again and again until they have the leverage.  Either they'll use the debt ceiling or agree to have it booted until after the 2014 midterm when the Dems will get shellacked again and then they come back saying "America has spoken, they've chosen are agenda"  after refusing to give on any damn thing given the Dems supposed mandate now off the 2012 elections.  

    The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.
