O.K. Obama... Now is the time to pull everything off the table

The choice is to go over the cliff or allow all of the Bush Tax cuts to expire. Let the Rebubs fight for the tax cuts to be saved for those making under 250k , but offer nothing else.

1. Obama can stay quiet and say nothing. Let Boehner squirm.

4. What more can he do?

Obama has no negotiating partner on the other side. Boner can't even get his own bill thru the House. It's 10 days to X-mas and short of arrest for treason there is no way Boner gets enough Dems or Repubs to vote for any bill.

And Boner yells at Obama to lead on the 'fiscal cliff'! Why should he? THIS IS CONGRESS' JOB; handling the money! That's not HIS department, congressman! That's YOURS.

5. Yes

Obama has tried time and time and time and time and time again to unnecessarily compromise and it has never worked. This is his last chance to save his base which elected him twice. No more Mr. President. Time to be an actual liberal - or hell, just a Democrat - and stay there. No compromise.

But I've got no hope for that. Obama has no interest in winning this negotiation.
