Krauthammer on Obama’s fiscal cliff proposal: Any Republican who buys this is a fool

Earlier today Obama’s big fiscal cliff proposal was for Republicans to cave on tax increases for the ‘rich’ and for Obama and the Democrats to offer nothing in return. No really, that was it. Obama says they’ll wait until next year to do entitlements.

And to that, Krauthammer says that if any Republican buys this offer they are a fool, and that if Republicans give it up now in return for nothing Obama wins big.


I say that even if Republicans give up tax increases for a deal on entitlements, even a good deal, Obama still wins. The Tea Party would arise as third party to cast out these spineless RINOs and we’d split every election for the next generation. For Republicans to cave on taxes would be checkmate for Obama.
