Here is video of President Barack Obama’s statement on the “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations earlier this afternoon. Obama struck a gloating tone, at times mocking Republicans even before a deal is officially approved. Obama gloated that the GOP “is within sight” of approving a raise in tax rates – which, he reminded, they had said they would not support several weeks ago. Many – even some in the media – wondered if Obama’s gloating, campaign-like tone was really appropriate, especially since nothing has yet been officially approved.
