Republicans displeased with Obama’s ‘fiscal cliff’ address

by Rosalind S. Helderman on December 31, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Republicans are already pushing back against President Obama’s just concluded “fiscal cliff” address, in which Obama said a deal is near but not yet at hand and urged further pressure on Congressional Republicans.

A top aide to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) tweeted that Obama was making a deal harder with the speech, in which he bragged that he’ll be president for the next four years and stressed that Republicans have already caved on higher taxes for the wealthy. Both comments drew hearty campaign-style applause from his audience.“If Obama’s goal was to harm the process and make going over the cliff more likely, he’s succeeding,” tweeted Doug Heye.

A top aide to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell chimed in that Obama had changed the terms of negotiations in his speech.

“Potus just moved the goalpost again. Significantly. This is new,” wrote Josh Holmes, McConnell’s chief of staff.

1. Awww, they are always displeased with something or other

It is their natural state of being. I worry if they are ever NOT displeased, it could be a sign of the end times.

5. And in another surprising development: Breaking:
