Like Clockwork: Obama Caves -- Bye, bye $250,000 and up. Hello $400,000 and up [View all]

And so the unnecessary caving begins again.

Dear DU apologists, I understand you adamantly insisted Obama would never cave on the long held campaign promise of raising taxes on households making $250K and up so I am offering you yet another olive branch so you can begin your new spin (and/or burying) of how it never happened

Going over the cliff is still the best option for America but like the Right we on our side have deniers a plenty to the facts. Do nothing and the Left wins. It's a simple strategy. Negotiating a deal with the Right says you either agree with the Right (deep entitlement cuts, more tax cuts for corporations, save the wealthy), or you are the world's worst negotiator.

Unless money is removed out of politics both parties will play their shell games which ultimately always favors the few (who are their biggest donors and expect a return on their investments).

A deal on this fake fiscal cliff will be made miraculously at the 11th hour (as it has always been done in these situations that involve big money for the last 4 years) and both sides will claim victory despite the evidence pointing to a win for the Right.

There is a difference between compromising and caving. It appears many on our side aren't able to comprehend that. Obama caved. And we aren't done yet. The world is in balance again.
