    Harry Reid: "We're going over the cliff"

    I swear this is starting to read exactly like the last chapter of "1984".

    Reid says fiscal cliff dive likely; blasts Boehner for lacking leadership | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    "Boehner will be to blame “if we go over the cliff, and it looks like that’s where we’re headed,” Reid insisted as the Senate returned to work for a post-Christmas session focused on disaster relief for Sandy victims and renewing key government surveillance powers."


    How much does anyone want to bet that a "miraculous last minute deal" will be struck that avoids the cliff yet does absolutely nothing to address the problem? All just another well played episode of "Kick the Can", I'm afraid...

    Actually. Everybody will be to blame. But only the people will suffer.

    Harry Reid just wants to avoid taking on more responsibility. He successfully managed, for 3 years, to not pass ANY budget and effectively, not doing ANYTHING while still receiving a fat paycheck and lobby interest group money, and now he wants people to believe the it's the other guys' fault alone. And guess what, some may even believe him.

    Reid a idiot. He honestly thinks that during a Democrat run Presidency the Republicans are going to be to blame ?

    Nope.

    Obama and Reid are willing to sacrifice the economy of the Country because their priorities are not a healthy economy but to attempt to destroy the Republicans and to redistribute money.

    ITs Obamas cliff, why should the Republicans care.

    End result Obamas going to associated with 8 years of suffering, chronic unemployment and dependence.

    Hes going to be associated with a Country that saw States and the Federal Treasury go bankrupt during his term.

    Both parties are at equal fault. There was a time in politics that the leaders of both houses -- and the minority leaders -- would put six minions in a room and say, "Don't come out of the damned door until you've found a compromise."

    Now? It's all about the blame game. Clowns, every last one of them.

    Ya why should they care about suffering, chronic unemployment, and dependence as long as its someone else's fault. Now that's a party I can vote for!

    Everyone needs to sit down, ****ing get over themselves, and make a deal happen.

    I think we should lock them all up in a building, stick the national guard outside, and not let them leave until a deal is done. These people are ****ing children.

    I'll take a guess that the Democrats will blame the Republicans 100% and the Republicans will blame the Democrats 100% and the non-partisan will just shake their heads in baffled bemusement and wonder how we became such a mentally challenged 3rd world country.
