So... they wanted "no taxes at all," got tax increases, and it's their victory? Well, as long as it makes you happy, keep saying that.
They want taxes to be as low as possible. You need to look at this from a larger historical perspective to understand what I'm talking about.
Weird, I thought most GOPers wanted no taxes at all. I mean, you just wrote that, and it's what they campaigned on (and lost). And the Dems wanted taxes on the rich - which they did get. Which they got. So it seems everybody wins?
Only if you completely fail to grasp the fiscal objectives of the Right. And yes, there are a lot of stupid conservative pundits (radio talking heads really) who fail to grasp them as well.
Well goodie! They should keep it up; I would love to see more compromise, especially since it's both benefitting the country and tearing the conservative voting base in twain. I'd actually like the GOP a lot more if they kicked out the social cons and only had the fiscal ones willing to compromise left.
What part of "stocks plummet when Obama wins re-election" makes you think that markets respond favorably when liberals win?
Welllllll, they didn't. So... uh...
Hey, if conservatives say they lost, Democrats said they won, and I made money on the deal, I don't care how you spin it. Bring on more GOP losses! Or wins, from your view. They work for me!
