The fiscal hawks in the Republican Party are the fiscal wing’s equivalent of the pro-life wing’s Akin and Mourdock. They are doing immeasurable harm to the conserative cause by ensuring that 1) Republicans get blamed for going over the cliff, AND 2) we get a far worse outcome than Plan B.
We have a losing hand, yet we keep calling and raising our opponent.
This could very well cost us the House in the mid-terms.
The Republicans could have won this past election if they had run a conservative campaign and not a liberal lite one. Turnout was lower than even for McInsane because not enough conservatives could hold their noses.
Caving in on the fiscal cliff and being liberal lite will kill the party, not sticking to principles despite the blame game.
The media are the real problem, not fiscal principles.
Stutter much, loser?
The GOP is going to be slaughtered in the mid-terms no matter what they do.
It'd be better to take over the GOPe apparatus and throw the RINOs under the bus.
Could you repeat that, please?

So HOW LONG do we keep “playing it safe”? It already cost us our chance at the Senate and the White House - so HOW LONG do we keep doing this strategy - until that option is gone?
As to losing the House - why are you so worried about it, when our party is essentially rubber-stamping the President? I don’t see what the difference will be - maybe gun control? I don’t see why we should trust them on that issue when they sell out to Obama on taxes. I simply fail to see a difference in this House and when Pelosi ran the place, other than Pelosi oversaw an expansion in gun rights (into national parks).
Cuz, just because you repeat it often doesn't make it true.
The only thing stupid in this whole charade has been Boehner’s ineptitude. He's the world's worst negotiator.
As has been pointed out on this board numerous times, all the House Republicans had to do was to pass a bill extending the tax cuts for everyone, send it to the Senate, and then leave town. Then Dirty Harry and JugEars would own the tax hike.
Instead, Boehner made a fool of himself (not that that is so difficult), obsequiously running back and forth to Zero with his various plans just to have Zero shoot each one down and then laugh at him.
Thank goodness there were enough conservatives in the House to block Boehner’s “Plan B.”
