Congress & President Playing Chicken

Note about the fight between Congress and the President over tax hikes and spending cuts:

While I am almost certainly going to be accused of “supporting Obama” on this, I would prefer people take my word because I have said this over and over and over again for more than 15 years including multiple times on my blog and about multiple Presidents and Congresses:

When Congress picks a fight with the President, no matter who the President or who leads the Congress, the President usually wins in the public eye.

Prediction: if the President plays chicken on this tax and spending issue and doesn’t flinch, he wins one way or the other politically.
