    Did I miss the part in your post where you actually reproduced the offending posts from me?

    Could you run them again please?

    And just to show I am a reasonable and far guy, if somebody gets hit in the head by President Obama wielding a ball bat with a nine inch nail through it, feel free to blame me for it just like some pointed a finger at Sarah Palin and her target cross hairs on Gabby Giffords in Arizona - among others.

    In fact, I will accept any attack on the entire body - not just the head. It will be my fault and I will take blame for creating the environment for it.

    Satisfied now?

    No, I did not...but seriously Hay, my original post "But...but...but..."was meant to be satirical. You need to lighten up a little, at your age, high strung as you seem…sounds like a prime candidate for a medical issue…regardless of our ideological differences I mean that with sincere consideration.

    “Republicans to avoid this dual-trigger nightmare is to somehow convince Democrats to bail them out. And for that, they have two points of leverage.

    The first is political: Democrats don't want to raise $3.8 trillions in taxes, much of which will fall on middle-class households…

    The second is that this particular deficit-reduction plan could be devastating for the economy. Rather than phasing in slowly over the course of the next decade, it would all hit at once…So the GOP is not without options…

    Talk to the White House, and you'll hear that they fiercely oppose permitting the Bush tax cuts to expire, and that they would prefer to see the spending trigger replaced with a bigger, more thoughtful deficit-reduction plan….
    Letting the Bush tax cuts expires is not a popular policy. Nor do crowds cheer for automatic sequestration. If they happen due to Republican obstruction, that's one thing. If they happen because Democrats don't want to make an alternative deal, that's quite another.”


    So it would appear, if taken on the whole, both sides have leverage AND exposure. We’ll see how this plays out.


    Might want to read the rules before griping about "a misleading title ".As for as this lame ass bit..."quote selectively from the source article. "THATS WHAT THE FRIGGEN LINK IS FOR.

    You mean this rule "17. Starting a Thread - When starting a thread it is best to express your own thoughts in your own words. Threads w/o original content may be summarily closed."

    If not please re-direct me.

    The thread was not 'your own thoughts in your own words' but rather copy/paste from the article. As to the 'quote selectively' remark it was merely my contention that there were other points in the article. IOW, if you posted the link (as 'THATS WHAT THE FRIGGEN LINK IS FOR) why copy/paste only a portion of it?

    Ahh...look Little dickey still has his shorts in a wad for my slamming him for his cut and paste post when REPLYING to a post.

    Hey its kinda short but its accurate.

    Looks like dilemma time coming up for the party of Koch/Grover. Looks like a trick bag to me.
