And he does it in the best possible way. The following article is about House Republicans defending Speaker John Boehner from criticism, but one Republican did it in very apt words.

"[R]etiring Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio), dismissed the possibility of a challenge [to Boehner's position of Speaker] on Thursday night. 'Itís like saying the superintendent of an insane asylum should be discharged because he couldnít control the crazy people,' he said. 'Thatís nuts.'"

Indeed, retiring Republican Rep. LaTourette talking about your fellow Republicans in the House, indeed.

The problem now is that most people approve the President's plan they voted for him.
The Republicans are playing with fire here, they will be blamed for a tax hike on the
middle class they will be blamed for the recession, and perhaps worse and they give
the ball to the Democrats. I can't believe they are that stupid then I think of the actions
of the Tea Party people who really control the Republican agenda. Nuff said.

It does not matter whether its true or not, the Democrats will be able to paint them all
with the same brush and that is good enough. Reality is not reality perception is
reality and the Republicans will be found guilty. Democrats should send out a mailer
reminding the people "This tax hike and hardship is brought to you by the Republican
Party of America."

All that the electorate will remember is that there were 2 terms of economic recession and that they are farther behind today than they were before electing the Democrats.

No one remembers the details of how they got there - just that they are there

- CM ... You are absolutely right that if the US goes over the fiscal cliff while BO plays golf in Hawaii during his $3.6 million taxpayer subsidized vacation and if the US then enters into a double dip recession that is even worse than the current laughable recovery, the weakest recovery by far of all nine since WWII as well as one on which six trillion dollars in deficits have been pissed away in Washington without a trace, then four years from now President Obama and the Democrats not congress will carry the can for this disaster. As a result, the voters will punish the 2016 Democratic candidate for president just like they villified Goerge W, Buch and punished John McCain for the 2008 recession even though McCain had the cleanest hands in the room and heavily Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac supported Barack Obama had some of the dirties hands in room. Voters en mass have the attention span of a humminbird`s wings and they will almost always blame the party in the White House for bad economic times and they will again in 2016 and they will actually be right to do so. Besides, Barry will be out of free phones and condoms and BC pills by then due to the dire fiscal straights of the countr. As Lincoln might say if he were alive today `You can fool all of the people some of the time and you can fool some of the people all of the time. But you can`t foll most of the people for eight years in a row of the time..

You've about summed up the density of the Democrat base. They will blame the GOP for everything because their base is so stupid.

Apparently you agree with those who will simply lie then. You'd make a good US Liberal Democrat
