President and Speaker Don’t Seem Close on Cliff
If Boehner caved, could he sell it to his members? You know the President isn’t going to budge. So how does a deal get made?

Krugman: The Republican Dream Has Ended
To extent I find anything he writes interesting, what interested me about this column is that while he describes what he believes is the Republicans dream, he never describes the Democrats dream. So what is it? A giant welfare state that spends vastly more than it takes in year after year? A Nobel Prize winning economist thinks that is viable?

Georgia Congressman Apologies Deeply and Profoundly for Saying the Word “Midget”

Prager 20121213 – 3 Thuggery

Prager H3: Union members engaged in thuggish behavior in Michigan and the media yawns. A Michigan legislator cries “there will be blood” and the media yawns. Would they yawn over such provocations if they came from the Right?… Educators complain that Latino kids aren’t reading because they can’t relate to the white characters in their school books… American soldiers have been ordered not to refer to the Taliban as “the enemy.”
