Gotta give the GOP credit . . . they are SO much better at politics than the Dems.
All weekend long we heard GOPer after GOPer on the talkshow circuit saying: "The tax cuts should be made permanent, but, AS A COMPROMISE, we would be willing to accept extending them for 2 or 3 years."
The President, and the Congressional Dems should be all over the media saying "The GOP has it all backwards. The budget-busting "Bush tax cuts" should be allowed to expire completely, but, AS A COMPROMISE, we would be willing to extend them for 98% of Americans. We just can't afford to keep giving tax breaks to the top 2%, who don't need them, anyway?"
WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY?!
