It's pretty clear this President bypassed his own Party and went directly to the Republicans for this latest Tax Cut Deal. I think even he is now realizing that his Party has been thoroughly hijacked by Socialist/Progressive extremists. You just can't work with crazed partisans like Pelosi. There can be no Bipartisanship as long as partisans like her are running things. I have to give this President some credit for coming around. It really is better late than never. The Republicans will take the House back in January and i'm actually optimistic that things will get better for the country. The Republicans have already shown they're willing to work with the President. So now it's just a matter of giving this Dem-led Worst Congress in History the boot once and for all. When a Democratic President bypasses his fellow Democrats and goes to the Republicans for answers,you know the Democratic Party is in serious trouble. I think all Legislation should be put on hold until January. Nothing can get done with this Lame Duck Democrat-Congress. Time to wrap it up and start over in January.
