Two little words that make my eyes glaze over: "fiscal" and "cliff." I think we all know how this movie ends, right? Just look at the prequel. But if you can muster up some interest, read Mona Charen's What the Budget Impasse Is Really About. See also Charles Krauthammer: Obama Wants to ‘Drive a Stake Through’ GOP in Fiscal Cliff Deal. I don't imagine it will be that difficult. Just give them the stake and they'll shove it in themselves.
But Obama's congressional honchos can handle those details, because "fiscal cliff" makes the president's eyes glaze over, too, and anyway, he's busy. Andy McCarthy: Between Golf Rounds, Obama Honors Led Zeppelin, Dustin Hoffman and David Letterman
Good to see the president fully engaged on our cratering economy. I’ll bet that 3-week Hawaii vacation can’t get here soon enough.I first read that as "catering" economy, which made a certain amount of sense, too, at least in Washington.
It's a comfort to know that, no matter how bad things get in the coming dystopia, we'll still be allowed to admire, from afar, our Really Cool President yukking it up with vintage British rock stars. I guess it keeps the baby-boomers happy as their wealth evaporates and their kids look for jobs that aren't there.
