John Deeth Blog: Machiavellian chicken: Letting the GOP hang itself

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

President Obama's economic stimulus package is taking heat from the
Republicans who want it to include tax cuts, tax cuts, and some more
tax cuts too. Some of us lefties are exasperated as the prez chants
his mantra of bipartisanship.But consider this possibility: Obama's
giving them enough rope to hang themselves. A couple weeks of this,
and he turns the tables: "See? You can't work with these people. They
represent the same old politics as usual, the same old answers that
didn't work. I gave `em a chance and they blew it." Obama tipped his
hand Friday with the "I won" line, and he's got the votes in the
House.
