    The House Republicans need to put an empty chair up on the podium and leave it there until Obama comes to negotiate on the fiscal cliff

    That's already been their strategy.

    They put an empty chair on the podium to represent Obama's unwillingness to negotiate?

    Their empty chair represents their lack of ideas.

    They're so barren at this point they don't even have anything to ask for. They're entirely dependent on Obama making their demands for them simply so that they can repudiate him.

    An empty chair is their idea of a debate. The only kind that they can win.

    How disappointing. Republicans have gotten a reputation over time of being unserious when it comes to governing. People say they don't have any real ideas and that they don't even embrace reality (like REAL numbers and factually based policies) anymore. The consensus among many people is that Republicans are all about trying to tear things down instead of building things up. What I want to know is this: Is this all Republicans have left? Silly symbolic stunts?

    Obama's done half the work. He let Republicans know, for quite some time now, that he was going to raise taxes.

    They thought that was "political suicide". So much so, they let him run on that.

    Well it wasn't.

    Now they want Obama to "add" to that political suicide, by outlining entitlement cuts.

    And that's after the entitlement cuts he agreed too as part of the first deal.

    Well..he won.

    Let the Republicans outline the cuts they want.

    Time for their own Hari Kari act.
