The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal are reporting tonight that Obama is thinking about a $351 billion tax cut to stimulate the economy.

His reason? To mollify trolls like Boehner and Mitch McConnell who have taken to the airwaves this weekend to threaten to stymie the original economic stimulus plan centered on infrastructure spending in the various states, energy innovations and education spending.

Bipartisanship goes a long way, but maybe it's time the incoming president listens to guys like Rep. David Obey of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, who said this weekend he'll never again listen to a word any Republican says about fear of deficits.

Obama will soon learn -- or should have learned during his days in the Senate -- that punks like Boehner and McConnell can't be mollified.
