Bohener talks today and stresses a few things.

1) Obama has no mandate or political capitol to spend.
2) The House won't budge on Bush tax cuts.
3) The House won't approve tax increases without spending cuts.

Translation: same as last 4 years.
Putting off fiscal reform for another 4 years.
The extinction of the species is worse than the extinction of the nation, which is worse than the extinction of the tribe, which is worse than the extinction of the family, which is worse than the extinction of the individual. The second he reverses that list of priorities, he becomes a coward, and would be summarily disposed of by any civilized society that values its own survival.

Somewhat of a relief.

Could you imagine the terror of Obama having a Democratic win for the House race?
