Latest Development?

Obama Administration

I haven’t been able to follow the fiscal cliff developments closely, but I take it they are close to a deal that nobody likes. The House may or may not pass it tomorrow.

Happy New Year.

Shining Asylum on the Hill

Obama Administration

Well, it’s FC (Fiscal Cliff) day. Howard Fineman says the rest of the world thinks we’re crazy.

Yeah, pretty much.

My impression from reading some rightie blogs is that they see any concession whatsoever as a fail.Joshua Green writes at Business Week that Republicans are blowing a great deal and that Democrats ought to be furious at the President for what he has offered so far. I suspect the President realizes he’s not going to get anything sensible out of the Republicans, and his strategy isto at least seem responsible and rational, in contrast to the GOP whackjobs.
