Eric Cantor has broken off talks with Biden apparently over taxes and called for Speaker Boehner to step in (take the fall?).
Asked about the apparent impasse at a presser today, the Speaker said,"I understand his frustration, I understand why he did what he did, but I think those talks could continue if they're willing to take the tax hikes off the table."
I realize this sound extreme or even a little flaky coming from me, and I don't say this lightly, but I honestly don't believe I could support Barack Obama's re-election if tax hikes were taken off the table. I rather just sit the election out than support any further dithering on tax hikes. At some point a hard stand has to be taken, and clearly that point is now. It's past time for leadership.
