    Two Major Conservative Obstacles Emerge To Tax Cut Compromise

    Hold the presses, this seems to be far from a done deal.



    Two key obstacles emerged Tuesday night to the passage of President Obama's tax cut compromise with the GOP. Except this time they come from the right: The influential anti-tax group Club for Growth and conservative kingmaker Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) both came out in opposition to the agreement, threatening the breadth of Republican support for the plan.

    Of course. It will never be enough for them.

    I really, really hope this is true and DeMint and his idiot acolytes scuttle this deal. Leave it to them to not be satisfied with getting 99% of what they want.

    I can't. This is important.

    chances are big, since the GOP policy since day one has been.. do not give the black socialist Muslim in the white house any victory what so ever... hence the party of NO has emerged.

    Everytime you bring race into it, you make all Libbos look sillier and sillier.

    Not to mention it's like explaining balancing a checkbook to a 5-year-old when this stuff comes up.

    Well, I guess we can't blame them; it's really the only argument they have left for their failed agenda.

    I can't recall I have ever brought race into it here personally, and of course you guys don't. Denying that the majority of Americans however that do not like Obama--and keep in mind you are going to try and argue against a guy that lives in Kentucky--do not bring his race up though is lying to yourselves. Anyways, I have nothing else to contribute other than Republicans forgot what the word compromise means (they think it means give it all) and Obama forgot what it means (he must think it means take in the ass).

    Nice effort on the part of the right wing True Believers to derail the thread with the decaying race garbage. But lets get it back on track please.

    The right wingers get 99% of what they want - 100% really on the tax extensions, but even that is not enough. How do you get more than 100%.

    This story is the perfect illustration of the right wing of the GOP. Hopeless - clueless - and as anti-American people as they come.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
