Really? Reid’s comments did it? It wasn’t the fact the no Republicans showed up? Funny.

This could be a smart move. There are a lot of powerful people with a lot of their net worth tied to stocks. Four days of declines could get them to tell their GOP buddies in the House to get back in there and make a deal now.

So Sen. Reid informs us that the December 31 deadline is fast approaching. Well, now we know the Senator can read a calendar as well as the rest of us. Yes, if we go over the “cliff” many of us will pay more in taxes. But the world will not end and the U.S. will survive. Conceivably the “cliff” might help our government to finally become serious in confronting our out-of-control entitlement spending. Politicians and the media need to stop their scare talk about the “fiscal cliff”.

The GOP could agree to any and all economic and trade proposals coming through the house and senate. It wouldn’t matter because the blame for the poor economy, rising energy costs and high unemployment rate would still land squarely on their shoulders.

The left will simply never concede to ever having made a mistake and their followers believe them with more faith than any cult leader could summon.
