Vice President Joe Biden, bless his heart, is promising that there's going to be a tax hike (including one on small businesses) in 2013. This, despite the fact that that the Republicans used their 58/42 minority in the Senate and 256/179 minority in the House to somehow prevent the current ruling party from moving ahead on the promised tax hikes: no doubt the President will make a speech and shine the light of his countenance upon the 112th Congress, thus causing them to tremble and flee the righteous Hope-and-Change of the Lightworker. Or the President will pout, which will probably have roughly the same effect.
VP Biden also promised that the administration would be hiking the death tax, speculated that the next post-DADT repeal step for the White House would be addressing the 'so-called' DOMA (although Biden apparently neglected to mention why he voted for it in the first place, just like a majority of his party's Senate caucus), and walked back the White House's walkback on Biden's recent unilateral declaration that we'd be out of Afghanistan by 2014. Biden then ritually slew a baby harp seal wrapped in the American flag on national television; the Vice President managed to gouge out the heart with his bare hands and offer it up to President Obama before somebody managed to switch to commercial.
Seriously: why do they let this man out without a keeper?
