The class warfare which is promoted on a daily basis by liberals and their comrades in the American Pravda is not working with the American people. What we want is jobs and a productive economy, neither of which we've seen in an Obama nation.
Well, at least Obama has come to his senses about extending all the Bush tax cuts, even if his heart is not in it. It's interesting how his rhetoric on the effects of raising taxes in a recession has changed dramatically in the last few weeks.
This is a losing battle for Democrats. If they refuse to agree to this and Americans come home from their jobs in January with smaller paychecks, the fury will be directed at the libs.
This was actually a smart move on Obama's part. In an effort to save his own hide, he is portraying himself as a centrist. We'll see if the public falls for his chicanery. If the economy improves, he will take all the credit for it, and if things don't change, he will place all the blame on the Republicans.

Large Majority of Americans Favor Tax Cuts… Democrats? Not As Much
Gallup released a poll today on extending the Bush Tax Cuts.
Two major elements included in the tax agreement reached Monday between President Barack Obama and Republican leaders in Congress meet with broad public support. Two-thirds of Americans (66%) favor extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts for all Americans for two years, and an identical number support extending unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed.
This may explain why democrats who are facing tough races in ’12 are in favor of the bill.
