I think Obama and the Dems are perfectly willing to let the country go over the cliff. The Repubs will get all the blame, and the Dems will have succeeded in gutting the Defense Department, which they have long desired to do. They then can introduce dozens of bills that seek to give the tax cuts back to the below $250K crowd, only to watch them get stopped by the Repubs because there aren't provisions for the above $250K folks and no provisions of spending cuts. The Dems are in a powerful bargaining position, if you ask me, and it's because the Repubs have been so stupid for the past 12 years.
