Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says it would be better for Republicans to take that dive off the so-called fiscal cliff on Dec. 31, rather than “cave in” to President Barack Obama on tax increases.

The Georgia Republican also suggested that GOP leaders in Congress “should be prepared” if necessary to force a government shutdown to get the deep spending cuts they want.

“I think it’s a huge mistake for House Republicans to cave in and try to find some kind of desperate solution that doesn't work,” Gingrich told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday night. …

Obama Regime Labor Union, (ORLU), demands more spending money, or promises to cause the Spending Cliff Strike.

BTW, ORLU strike posters are now being printed on the backs of old “Bush’s Fault” Strike Posters.

Somebody 911 Newt that Boehner has culled all the conservatives from influential committee assignments and threatened the rest of them that he is watching them. It looks like Tammy Faye is slashing and burning his way to a total cave in.

Time for 16 brave conservative reps to vote no on Boehnor’s speakership in Jan.

Do NOT vote for boo hoo Boehner in Jan.

Where is Michelle Bachman these days. We need her AND Allen West. Can't believe that no good GOP i Floriduh redistricted Allen West's area so he would probably lose.

This is all out war folks. I see no, NONE, nada difference between boohoo B, Ozippy, Cantor and a bunch of other so called GOPe. I an sick to my stomach over this huge turn of events in this country. That election was clearly stolen and no GOP is doing anything about it. I wish I knew which of the GOPe actually voted for Zippy. What do you folks think.

Going over the cliff means across the board massive tax hikes, and huge cuts to the defense budget. How is that possibly doing what’s right for america? It is doing exactly what obama wants, while giving him the ability to blame republicans for any economic and financial fallout. I love Newt, but it would be suicidal to go over the cliff - for the party and the country.
