Since I wrote the last several posts sitting in a mall, I’m certainly aware of the transition from the Thanksgiving to the Xmas season. Few of the folks passing me by are paying a bit of attention, I am sure, to political news. But it does go on, in dribs and drabs:
* Santorum “open” to 2016 run. It’s his turn!
* Cantor echoes earlier Boehner argument that Obamacare is “on the table” during fiscal talks. The White House needs to put a quick end to this angle.
* At TAP, Paul Waldman notes Republican vagueness over their position in fiscal talks matches pre-election vagueness, which is quite an accomplishment.
* At Ten Miles Square, Joshua Tucker suggests post-Citizens-United world palpably affecting GOP attitudes on tax policy.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports a Pennsylvania College emulating some businesses by cutting faculty hours to avoid Obamacare coverage requirement.
And in non-political news:
* Gene Chizik fired as Auburn football coach two years after national title.
Time to move back onto the jammed highways of metro Atlanta yet again. See you all tomorrow.
