    You could be right; politicians saving face. Stock market seems confident as of late.

    Actually, it looks as if it hasn't. That is why it is a good day and a great evening. Boehner's planned sell-out was to occur this evening. There are men and women of principle and courage in the House of Representatives after all.

    So Boehner and Cantor need to be stripped of their power and relegated to the cloak room.

    Given that this is about taking a principled standing you might not understand it. I think it is the best news we have had in a month. We might save this Republic yet! If we need someone to hold our coats I will call you, okay?

    Re: G.O.P. Leaders in House Pull Tax Bill, Citing Lack of Votes

    So boehner tries to show the reps are willing to act like adults and compromise, though it really wasn't much of a compromise at all, leaving the blame on the dems for being the babies in all of this, Obama counters with a compromise to show like always he is willing to compromise with the reps. Then Boehner does the same trick again trying to pass the ball back to obama before christmas, and his own party screws him over saying we will never compromise and we will be seen as the problem except to our solid and deteriorating base. It seems the last election did not do a thing to educate many fo the republicans and they are just going to keep walking their extremist line.

    once again republicans prove they are the party of the wealthy and greedy and will accept no alternatives but the cliff. It will be a fun new year when their military spending gets slashed and we get a harshly balanced budget that they will hate. I guess Boehner is one fo the few republicans who wants to have a majority next election. At this rate we are looking at a dem congress in 2014.

    If the House had caved on tax increases it would have been the end of the Republican party. If the Republican party chooses not to stand on principal they might as well be Democrats. With any good fortune this will be the end of Boehner and Cantor.
    yeah, because that worked so well last election. the country that told you to be moderate is really just waiting for the republicans to go more right so we can get a worthwhile party to replace them. That sounds about right to me.

    Don't get all superior, the reps will either cave or they will go over the cliff and take the blame for not compromising at all. people are sick of their bull, and last election showed it. only a small vocal minority wants this partisan bull, and now they get to take the blame because obama has clearly compromised, and all the lies in the world are not going to cover that up come the cliff. Those in your party who want re-election will cave, and that will give the dems what they need.

    You guys just love the losing thing. it helps your victim narrative so much

    Those $800 Billion in defense cuts are not enough to save us, but they are a start. I'd like that doubled.

    Too funny. I watched on Bloomberg his speech, where he said "when this bill passes in the House later today" LOL!
