Michelle Malkin on the Fiscal Cliff-Hanger and Hobby Lobby:
On Fox & Friends Weekend, 12-29, Michelle Malkin agreed with Charles Krauthammer’s assertion that Obama had succeeded in driving a wedge between House Republican conservatives and capitulators, and noted that he is now trying to drive a wedge between the same camps in the Senate. And like most conservatives, she believes Republicans will cave and and the spending issue will be put off again for another day.
She also said that conservatives should make an effort to support embattled Hobby Lobby since they are on the front lines fighting against the HHS mandate.

Byron York, Washington Examiner: How the fiscal cliff fight will end (unhappily for Republicans):
The word among some Senate Republicans is that a fiscal cliff deal is likely to be struck by Sunday, or Monday at the latest. (And Monday, being December 31st, is in fact the latest a deal could be struck to avoid January 1 tax increases.) Those Senate Republicans hope the final deal will make permanent current tax levels — Bush tax cut levels — for everyone who makes below $500,000.
The $500,000 figure is not set in stone. It could be $400,000, as President Obama is reportedly willing to agree to, or it could be higher, as some Senate Democrats have suggested in the past. But it will be more than the $250,000 that is the president’s current position. In addition, big spending cuts, the sequestration cuts scheduled to go into effect in the new year, would not be affected and would go forward as planned.
