Technically, the Bush tax cuts expired yesterday, so, technically, those Republicans who voted for the deal last night were actually cutting taxes for 98% of Americans.

They wouldn't take us to the edge of the cliff so they could spin it like this, would they?

Grover Norsquist on CNN:
“It’s technically not a violation of the pledge..."

Anderson Cooper, the network’s anchorman, pressed Norquist on this. “You’re saying because the Bush tax cuts have expired yesterday. So, basically they expired yesterday, so technically these are still tax cuts?”

“Correct,” Norquist replied.

To be fair though, didn't Norquist Okay this sort of deal a few weeks ago for basically the same reasoning?

To be fair, didn't Norquist and other Okay this sort of deal because the poll numbers were against them and they needed to come up with some sort of rationalization so they didn't continue to lose more and more popularity?

am awaiting his "run for President" (Grover's that is) when he gets tired of being the power behind the scenes and manipulating all of his GOP puppets!

Yes...

Plus the cliff would have hurt the puppet masters as well as goobers.
