    Headline should read

    Obama turns Fictional “Cliff” into Factual “Cave in”

    After running an election on reigning in military spending and restoring fair taxation in the wake of the Bush Tax cut era, Obama collapses, defers military spending cuts and modestly raises taxes on those pulling in over a half a million a year, or 2 percent of the population.

    Stunning display of incompetence or a remarkable example of democratic collaboration with the the wealthy and powerful whose self serving agenda has put the very purpose of America at risk.
