Poll: Plurailty of Public Would Blame GOP More Than Obama For Falling Off The Fiscal Cliff

Slublog sent this in, wondering why we should even bother with these nitwits called "Americans."

But the numbers here -- 45% would blame the GOP more, 34% would blame Obama more -- are mostly reflective of the general base of both parties. Among all adults, I mean, not just voters or likely voters.

It is frustrating being a political minority. There's no getting around that.

Meanwhile, while the idiot public plans on blaming the GOP, the Democrats are actually plotting to take us over the cliff. And then blaming the GOP, of course.

A growing bloc of emboldened liberals say they’re not afraid to watch defense spending get gouged and taxes go up on every American if a budget deal doesn’t satisfy their priorities. …

Bolstering the Democrats’ strategy is the belief that the “fiscal cliff” is actually shaped more like a “slope” where the economic effects will be felt gradually, not immediately. That theory gives Congress some time at the beginning of 2013 to set tax rates and configure budget cuts in a different political environment and with a new class of lawmakers.

The Democrats couldn't pass these tax hikes affirmatively, of course. They are only occurring because Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe (and the late Arlen Specter) demanded that the Bush tax cuts be sunsetted, with a date certain of expiration. This date was later pushed back but the expiration remained intact.

And yet spending plans are never sunsetted. That just goes on and on, infinitely.

Let me put it in Oliver Stone terms: Our tax cuts are orgasms. Their spending plans are wargasms.

I think that explains it.
