I was afraid that the GP was going to make it their business these next four years to deny Barack Obama a third term in office, so this news is somewhat heartening…
House Speaker John Boehner offered Wednesday to pursue a deal with a victorious President Barack Obama that will include higher taxes "under the right conditions" to help reduce the nation's staggering debt and put its finances in order.
"Mr. President, this is your moment," Boehner told reporters, speaking about the "fiscal cliff" that will hit in January. "We want you to lead… Let's find the common ground that has eluded us," Boehner said while congratulating the president on winning a second term.
Well, this is potentially great news, and could be a harbinger of a new bipartisan spirit in D.C. for the four years. Or, it could be something else.
I'm just saying, if the common ground that has been alluding them turns out to be in the back of a van parked out behind the Library of Congress, but, like, waaaay in there, behind some old tires, I'd caution the President run away and find a police officer.
