    I realize they have an argument that because they took this vote the day after all tax rates automatically rose, they actually voted to lower taxes for the majority of Americans. Even so, by allowing restoration of the 39% bracket from the 1990's, they did something that they said they would never do.
    Someone found a quote from Grover "Drown the Government" Norquist from this past summer stating just that. That voting to allow the tax cuts to expire was the same as raising taxes and violated his "No Taxes Ever Or I'm Gonna Primary Your Ass" pledge. Of course he's singing a different tune now but you can bet your ass he knows his ass is in trouble. (Did I get enough ass references in there?)

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
