Laying out any kind of logical refutation as to why taxes should or shouldn’t be raised, how fiscal uncertainty is damaging the nation, how Obama needs to “compromise” or how his actions today are contradicting something he said 4 years ago is all irrelevant… what is going on in Washington right now is about two things:
- Crushing any opposition to Obama
- Obama getting as much power as possible
Just as you can’t have a logical discussion with a crazy person, trying to refute how and why Obama and his party are in the wrong is just as futile. Obamabots are programmed to defend whatever actions Dear Leader is taking as long as it involves crushing Republicans.
Obama has zero reason to do anything but let things play out so, if Republicans won’t fold and compromise on their beliefs, he will simply blame them for any economic damage that occurs.
Republicans are damned if they fold and allow taxes to be raised and damned if they hold firm and things go south.
We can call this “fiscal cliff” whatever we want but, at the end of the day, it’s not about economics or what’s best for America and Americans… it’s about the destruction of the Republican Party.
