He is 100% right. The GOP thinks that they will receive accolades IF they cave. WRONG. Obama will get the praise. If they hold tight and force a shutdown, they WILL get creamed by the media.
SO WHAT??? Either way, the GOP will not win any type of war with the MSM or the majority of the soundbite swallowing sheeple. So, stop trying to be liked, and DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR AMERICA!
The GOP should immediately call for the Bush tax cuts to be made permanent.
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.
