A majority of Americans say that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff on Dec. 31, congressional Republicans should bear the brunt of the blame

    That’s because the MSM has been feeding them that crap for years. (And a significant percentage still believe there are alien UFOs, that 9/11 was a government conspiracy, that JFK was assassinated by the Mafia, that Lincoln was killed by the Illuminati, …..

    Once you lose the population to leftist education (i.e., propaganda), you lose the country.

    Do we still have a majority in the House? Is Boehner doing anything to pressure Obama?

    I heard an item on Rush this morning that Boehner is re-shuffling committee assignments to take Conservatives (Tea Party congressmen) out of important committees. Not verified, but possible true.

    The majority of Americans are apparently Democrats. They would shift the blame.

    The last election has shown that the majority of Americans are stoopid and/or terminally malinformed.

    Wait a minute. When the Bush tax cuts first passed, all the talk was about how most of the benefits went to the wealthy. Shouldn’t the left be hoping that we get rid of that nasty Bush legacy once and for all? So what if it adds back millions to the tax rolls and raises the lowest bracket by 50%.

    The fact of the matter is that if we do not go off this cliff, there is a higher one right after that with many more in queue. One of the last cliffs will be when the Fed is no longer able to get away with buying most if the Treasuries with tainted assets and interest rates rise to their normal levels. That cliff is so high that you can’t see the bottom when looking over it.

    How is this a surprise? Our President wants us to go over the cliff so he can blame the Republicans. It’s never about the good of the country; it’s always about what’s good for the Chicago mob.

    blame the Republicans
    because they never supported Tea Party or other Conservatives, even acting against them, and that cost them the Senate and the Presidency in 08, 10, and 12.
    Yer damn right I blame the Republicans motherfucking go along get along same old shit Stupid Party. After they refused to support Angle and O’Donnell in 10, I told RNC, RNSC to go to hell, not another dime. Same for Eric Cantor, my congressman, whom I worked for in 08.
    They added more insults, damn them to hell, not supporting Bachmann and West and now denying Tea Party reps committee asignments in the House.
    The Rep Party is dead, dead, dead, and failing a miracle, Uhbama will bury them.

    The Republicans should “see the light” and jump on board, offering up all new kinds of “revenue enhancements,” like a VAT, higher tax rates down to those earning as little as $50,000, etc., etc. Watch the Democrats and MSM nod in agreement. Then, when the bill comes up for passage, all the Repubs vote “present” and let the Dems own the whole shitting mess.

    And any Repubs that vote “yes” will have committed hari-kari. Double win!

    Let it burn.

    Screw them. Like I give a rat’s ass what a phalanx of Obamaphone welfare drones purport to think. Fuck the polls, do what’s right.
