I'm the first to admit that I would make a lousy diplomat, and I wouldn't be much of a negotiator, either.

But are we going to go off the fiscal cliff?

And if we are, why?

President Obama and  Congress are supposed to be doing something about it, and it's not getting done.

Sure, it's a lame-duck" session, but that doesn't let anyone off the hook.

I've said before that for too many people in and out of Congress, compromise means "You come over to my way of thinking."

But it's crunch time here, folks, so figure it out.

It's what you're being paid to do.

Thanks. I feel better now.
