"It's a shit show...."

Republicans Resigned to Getting Blamed

BuzzFeed: "It's difficult to find a Republican operative who is willing to say on the record that going over the fiscal cliff next Tuesday is a good idea. Provoking a crisis is bad politics: Republicans are resigned to taking the blame. And it's bad for their policy agenda: They will likely be cornered into a broader tax hike than the best deal they could get from President Barack Obama today, and with none of the spending cuts that might now be on the table."

"And yet, the dominant emotion among most Republicans here is one of sheer resignation."

Said one prominent Republican: "It's a shit show. Tax rates are going to go up on everyone, and we're going to get the blame."

2. Mr. Obvious and the GOP have never met

Agree 100 percent: the blame lies with the Republicans. Now they've backed themselves into the corner with no place to go. They deserve whatever bad fallout they get x1,000. They've managed to skate through most of their screw ups, so it's about time they have to take some heat for their actions.
