Republicans want entitlements in the debate but won't say what they are. That way they can say Obama cut social security and medicare. I have never seen such a bunch of spineless anti-patriots in my life.
Obama is not offering any compromises, he is just offering to raise taxes on the rich. That solves the fiscal cliff problem for a whopping 8 days, so sorry, that is just not goog enough.
And Obama refuses to cut anything as well, because he wants to be viewed as the Savior, and wants the Republicans take the blame for cutting entitlements.
Nobody likes it, but entitlements have to be cut. They are out of control. Both sides need to man up and cut them together, and take the heat for it together.
Obama is just as spineless, and just as much of an anti-patriot in this situation as the Republicans are.
Both sides screwed this up, both need to fix it, and both need to take the blame. And in the end if everything is successful, they both can take credit for it.
