Obama raises taxes on middle class as Boehner, McConnell sign on.
In the end, only 85 House Republicans rallied to support Barack Obama.
One hundred fifty-one House Republicans flatly refused to go along.
Launching stories like this one over at Newsmax that House Speaker John Boehner was losing support for his own re-election as Speaker.

Among other things — like taxing those greedy rich — Tuesday night Barack Obama inevitably raised taxes on Middle Class Americans.

Not to be ungracious and say “told you so”…but told you so.
Astonishingly, led by Speaker Boehner the 85 GOP House members went along with Obama because they were afraid to stand up to the President on principle.
Why? Because, went multiples of press reports, these 85 House Republicans were terrified of being blamed by the President and his liberal media allies for “going over the cliff.”
But fear not.
Both the House and Senate GOP have won the Barack Obama Participation Trophy.
Tell me again why these people should keep their jobs in 2014?
Doubtless you’ve heard of the “Participation Trophy” and how one “wins” one of these things.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
