Great first post
I tend to agree with Rush here...let the Dems have their fingerprints all over this...we are never gonna get what we want anyways..
Rush and anybody that wants to continue viewing America the old way, is missing the point the voters continue to try to make.
They want solutions, not the same old arguments. The majority WANTS to raise taxes on the rich.
The GOP should RELUCTANTLY go along, WARNING it likely will NOT increase revenues, and will likely SLOW the economy, growth, employment etc.
If 2014 yields a still weak economy, the GOP has the basis for "see, we told you so."
And if 2014 yields some improvements, the GOP can claim to have contributed to the "compromise."
I recognize I am not following the "true conservative" pack. I'll take that in stride, because except the 2010 House, the "true conservatives" are on an extended losing streak.
But it sure is fun to echo what Rush says, as he entertains with daily dose of conflict and anger. Doing the same things over and over, expecting different results is insanity.
Rush, Levin, Beck and others give listeners their daily doses of anger and conflict, and they KNOW it works, they get paid bigtime.
But it yields no political results of good consequence. Conservativism is NOT winning elections, by listening to them.
We need truly new thinking, new paradigms, and I expect that will come from some new voices.
