Why the GOPers won't deal on the deficit

It's painfully apparent to anyone paying attention that the GOPers don't really want to eliminate the deficit. In fact, as is obvious to everyone but their deluded base, every move they make is calculated to increase it, at the expense of ordinary, working class Americans.

Quote of the day on this is buried at the end of this horserace, Village CW piece on "Obama's gamble."
“The deficit favors Republicans. But if it seems like it’s been solved, then you take away one of the biggest Republican issues and at worst you neutralize it and at best you win it.” ~Jim Kessler, vice president for policy and a co-founder of Third Way
Really. Without the deficit demagoguing, they got nothing to run on.
