As I’ve already said the idea of extending the Bush Tax cuts rates on a temporary basis is a trap. By doing it in a temporary way the democrats are given a stark choice on raising taxes again in two years.

There is only one thing they could do that would be worse politically; and by golly they’ve managed to do it!

Defying President Obama, House Democrats voted Thursday not to bring up the tax package that he negotiated with Republicans in its current form.

“This message today is very simple: That in the form that it was negotiated, it is not acceptable to the House Democratic caucus. It’s as simple as that,” said Democratic Congressman Chris Van Hollen.

Well done democrats, now after Jan 3 when the republicans pass the tax rates without your help, they will get sole credit and if it can’t get passed due to senate intransigence or a filibuster by democrats then we have the president ON THE RECORD saying bluntly that a double dip recession is their fault:

President Obama warned his fellow Democrats on Wednesday that they risk plunging the country into a double-dip recession if they reject his tax-cut deal with Republicans.

Absolutely amazing! Totally tone-deaf! If you think 2010 was bad for the left watch what happens now. 2012 is going to be the sinking of the Titanic!

Update: Stacy has more, what fools!

Looking at the list of more than 50 House Democrats who signed the Welch letter, I see several names — including Paul Kanjorski, Jim Oberstar and Alan Grayson — of Democrats who got beat in the mid-term election.

Their careers are over and so they’ve got a political free-pass for these lame ducks to take a stand on “principle,” possibly resulting in a no-deal meltdown that results in Americans paying higher taxes next year. And maybe, as Larry Summer warns, pushing the economy into a double-dip recession.

Hey lets follow the losers off the cliff, unbelievable!

Gateway Pundit is amazed too:

Yesterday the Obama Administration warned Wednesday that if Congress rejected a compromise tax deal they risk plunging the US economy back into recession.Today the Pelosi democrats rejected the deal. They don’t trust his economic judgment, either.

This is like watching a horror movie you’ve seen before, you know the killer is behind the door and you’re shouting at the set. Don’t open it!

The biggest news from the interview than Stacy and I had with Sean Bielat (other than byebyebarney.org) was the news the president Obama will be coming to Massachusetts to campaign for Deval Patrick.

I seem to recall that the president came to Massachusetts just before election day in January and it had an excellent effect…for republicans.

With republicans dying to link their opponents to the president I can’t think of any move that the democrats can make that will cause them more grief in congressional races in the state, that being said since there is a three-way divide for Governor this might actually help Patrick rally his base…if his base was pleased with Obama.

But what do I know? I’m just a fat guy in a fedora.

Yeah I know he got it up first, but he’s a faster typist than me….but I’ll have VIDEO shortly Heh Heh Heh!

This useless:

a whopping 96 House and Senate Democrats are currently unopposed, State House News Service reported. In addition to the one-sided legislative races, Republicans have mounted no challenges to seven incumbent Democratic sheriffs while all but two of the 11 district attorney posts are assured to remain with the Democrats.

What is the problem? Robert Hedlund (R-Weymouth) Nails it:

Hedlund said he fears the GOP is focusing too highly on “top of the ticket” offices, such as the races for governor and treasurer, both of which boast strong Republican contenders.

“I’ve been telling people the dynamics are similar to what they were in 1990 and people are especially upset with Democratic incumbents,” Hedlund said. “What frustrates me is the lack of focusing on building from the ground up.“

If it wasn’t for the tea parties in places like Worcester county where would the republicans be? In our neck of the woods we are contesting all kinds of races.

This state is dying for different leadership, the national party and the state party have a lot to answer for.

but when I got downstairs Joe Scarborough making fun of Bill McCollum’s plan concerning Illegal aliens.

His point about him trailing and trying to make up ground with this is valid but saying his plan involves having them wear something yellow on the shirt just here and advising illegals “not to get on the train, they’re not taking you to Kissimmee.”

Joe I like ya but C’MON!

If I’m Imus I’m playing this clip over and over and over for the next week.

See what happens when Mika takes a week off?
