    If the Speaker position does come open, will he be in line for it?

    That is dumb.


    Republicans wanted to protect 100% of taxpayers from tax increases.

    After fierce negotiation, they were able to protect 99.4% of us, and made them permanent.

    Oh, and validated GWB on the policy.

    Oh, and took away Obama's annual demogogue tool so that can now gash him again on welfare spending.


    Great day!

    GWB was the mistake that I would rather forget. Obama was re-elected with a promise to make the wealthy pay more. That is what he got. The Groverites of the GOP had to wait for the white smoke from the master before they could vote last night. When is the GOP going to grow a pair and start thinking for themselves?

    Obama validates him about every day.

    Remember when toads such as yourself used to scream about Bush violating your 'privacy' rights?

    LOL

    That is one way to look at it.

    The Republicans tried to save 100% of the people from tax increases, and only came up .6% short. So they won big, especially considering how Obama the Tool can no longer use it as his main tool.

    Obama's ratings are tanking and he enters his second term as a lame duck.

    No wonder the pussy ran off to Hawaii and claimed he would never negotiate again.


    LOL

    Nice attempt at spin.

    The Republicans wanted no tax increases.
    The Democrats wanted tax increases on the richest 0.6%.

    The end result:
    Taxes were increased on the richest 0.6%.

    How was this a Republican victory?

    You must have been looking at an old tape. The Republicans looked like a clueless group of clowns, arguing with each other and failing to amend the Senate's bill when they were told to "take it or leave it." I watched most of their very sad speeches and it was pretty funny.

    But you keep spinning it for them. You need something that will help you forget what an ass whipping they got...:badgrin:
