If the economy is going so good, why are so many people laid off and need unemployment? Maybe Obummer should answer that question.

The republicans should have seen this coming and should have taken the lead on it rather than letting the fascists, I mean democrats, get a hold of the bit first.  That being said, they had damned well better show some smarts here and, if push comes to shove, give up on the offsets in exchange for the one-year extension because it is blatantly obvious that this is the only thing the democrats have left to distract people from Obamacare.

Yep! And Boehner should make it a point to tell Obama publicly to get his arse in gear about creating new jobs, so that this won't have to happen again. He can put the onus on Obama, and get a pass for the GOP.
