2008 win was easy for Obama, this time he won an amazing victory. Not only did dems hold the White House despite a still-troubled economy, in a year when their Senate majority was supposed to be doomed, they actually added seats.

Obama win re-election with a populist campaign, so he should plausibly claim that Republicans are defying the will of the American people.

So what should he do? Just say no and go over the cliff if necessary.

You should know that the fiscal cliff isn’t really a cliff. It’s not like the debt-ceiling confrontation, where terrible things might well have happened right away if the deadline had been missed.

This time, nothing very bad will happen to the economy if agreement isn’t reached until a few weeks or even a few months into 2013. So there’s time to bargain.

Also GOP should remember, its Obama's responsibility to fix economy not theirs (that's what I heard in election from GOP)

Most of all, standing up to hostage-taking is the right thing to do for the health of America’s political system.

So stand your ground, Mr. President, and don’t give in to threats, time to call GOP's Bluff, no deal is better than a bad deal.
