Quote of the Day
"It's not just a bad deal, this is really an insulting deal... Robert E. Lee was offered easier terms at Appomattox and he lost the Civil War. The Democrats won by 3% of the vote and they did not hold the House. Republicans won the House. So this is not exactly unconditional surrender, but that's what the administration is asking of Republicans." Charles Krauthammer, on the Obama administration's first offer to the Republicans during the fiscal cliff talks. You can agree or disagree with the merits of President Obama's offer to Republicans. What Krauthammer shouldn't do is compare the fiscal cliff negotiations to the bloodiest war on American soil. Krauthammer is a hack of epic magnitude.
