RE: Obama is Determined to Give Republicans What They Deserve on the Fiscal Cliff
Bonehead looked pretty weak when his Plan B got shot down by (not so) friendly fire.
The danger, of course, is that he makes a strategic retreat by resigning as speaker, and letting the Republicans install a radical teabagger in his place. After the teabagger speaker makes a fool of himself, he either makes a comeback, or at least takes over after the midterms as minority leader.
Obama only has to let the entire Bush tax cut package expire and then re-introduce them for people earning under $250,000. Who would vote against that? Game, set and match.
