    I'D AGREE with that

    Elections have consequences

    It's a logical fallacy with or without a law degree.

    Your traditions mean nothing.

Everyone knows that the Republicans are NOT going to "get grief from some on the right" over this. There will be a few murmurs about unemployment benefits on the op-ed page of the Wall Street Journal for a few days, then everyone will forget about it. This is hardly the type of thing that are going to make conservatives become disillusioned with their congressional leadership.
    I hope not, but I'm hearing it already from callers on talk radio. Some were even pissed that there was only a 2 yr extention. Personally I think the Republicans did a good job on this and I'm proud of them. Obama did the right thing too. It's a win win.

    Not quite. All he had to do was stand and fight and make his case before the people but like it was said by another poster, he punted on third down. It was simply terrible strategy and even worse execution.

    I suspect some of this started with the hiring of Rahm Emanuel. The guy left after only a year plus on the job after doing heaven knows what while he was there. Rahm as this street rep as one bad mother who will kill you while looking into your eyes and then cut them out and send them to your mother. Must be all hype because in the White House spot he was a pussycat.

    Not trying to be snarky. Just really curious as to what liberals consider fairness.
    how is paying a fair share punishing anyone?

    What do you consider a fair share? 50% 75% 85% ?
    Should everyone pay their fair share or only those deemed to be wealthy?
