    It's all so funny. Everyone up there on the hill is patting themselves on the back for getting over some fiscal crisis that they manufactured themselves from damn near thin air.

    I think this is the appropriate headline:


    Washington Celebrates Solving Totally Unnecessary Crisis They Created

    Official Washington was in celebration mode on New Year’s Day after kind of averting a completely unnecessary crisis that was entirely of its own creation.

    Now that the GOP has failed to put a monkeywrench in the economic recovery (which they hoped to do with huge spending cuts), the Tea Party occupation of America is over. The economy will grow 3-4% next quarter and consistently thereafter. New tax revenues make spending cuts irrelevant, and debt will become meaningless, as it did after WWII.

    Conservatism has officially become irrelevant. It has nothing to offer America and its future, which grows brighter every day.

    Nah... there's going to be loads of other battles coming. I think this cliff deal didn't deal with the debt ceiling which I think is going to be a battle every time it can possibly be fabricated into a battle.

    Depends on how you look it. If you wanted this out come, everyone can take some credit. If you wanted more cuts, do you blame democrats for not offering them or republicans for not holding firmer for them?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I can't wait to throw this in your face next quarter. Think you can keep from getting banned permanently so I can?

    The GOP can't win the debt ceiling battle anymore. It can just make noises. As to deficit reduction, with 3% growth it will become a back burner issue. Conservatism thrives on economic chaos. With the economy rightwing itself after the Bush Titanic sinking, the GOP will become more and more marginalized.
