I hate to inform members of the Republican party in Congress but the old days of daring the president to do as you desire are over. There is a new Sheriff Obama in town and he is ready to confront the gun men threatening life and security of the town. In his first post election speech, Obama told Republicans that it will be impossible to “extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. He made clear the nation could not afford them and just about every economist agrees tax rates have no connection to job rates.
Tea Party folk in Congress most probably want a fight. We sincerely hope they fight. Republican governors will go wild with anger, Republican Senators will disown their nutty ideas and they will confront an angry American nation which has had enough of their foolish economic ideas. Bring them on, Barack!
