There is a new poll out that show the GOP would shoulder the blame if the government goes off the fiscal cliff. In other words if The GOP in congress keeps trying to prevent Obama from moving the country forward there could be a backlash in the 2014 mid term elections. The democrats could take back the House. The fact that democrats made gains in both the House and Senate last week should be another warning sign. Other polls show that the majority of Americans want to see the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire and some diehard republicans like Bill Crystal are now seeing the light.

If the GOP and Obama don't come to an agreement and the government goes off the fiscal cliff, Fifty-three percent of Americans said Republicans in Congress would be more to blame in that instance, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted in the days following the election. Twenty-nine percent said that Obama would be more to blame, while 10 percent said both the president and Republicans would share blame. Republicans in congress better cave in or they will suffer bigger losses in 2014. I'm sure Republicans are looking forward to having a president Hillary Clinton and democratic control of the House and Senate at the beginning of 2017.

How incredibly short-sighted of the Electorate to identify the Republicans as obstructionists when they've actually claimed the mantle.

I do hope they can compromise but don't really think they are willing.

Well if it helps I sent Boehner an email and told him to give the Democrats everything they wanted.
Don't say No to any of their bills or amendments.
This way the Repubs can't be blamed for anything.

So I did my part.

Basically why do you think that at mid term and continued in this election that Obama's super majority was taken away and continued in this election. Especaill;y comig from Democrats who never accept that democrats controlled both houses for tweo eyar before the present crisis. Bush was president ans d got the blame. It was afetrall voters who voted in republicans at mid term to house control and took super majority senate away . The continue it i thsi elction.No one will remmebr who was majorityeloader;minor ity leader i either house. Ist like Bush ;Obama who takes the fall and is remember as happening under his presidency. The Buck stil stop at presidents desk and I call liberal B.S.The batter up is Obama to propose a solution that can pass the compromise test it will get.

****** mcconel made his move and we already anticipated this, which is why the movement is strong in unseating him in 2014 with a great diversity of people, you name it, people want his butt whopped.

A great deal of republicans who voted for Obama are on the ticket to remove mcconel and all the other obstructionists within the gop. They even got their own separate movement to get mcconel, who would have known?

Wow. That would be a dream from heaven. Mitch McConnell is a complete disgrace. I'd like to see Ashley Judd unseat him, but she might be a bit too Malibu for Kentucky these days...they went Romney by 23%
