The Blind Leading the Blinkered

Sing it Brent:
“Reince, it pains me to say this, but if the Republican Party breaks its word to the American people and goes along with President Obama with tax increases, it will have betrayed conservatives for the final time,” Bozell wrote.

“I will make it my mission to ensure that every conservative donor to the Republican Party that I have worked with for the last three decades — and there are many and they have given tens of millions to Republican causes — gives not one penny more to the Republican Party or any member of Congress that votes for tax increases,” he warned.
Boy, if there's anything that makes the opposition mad it's conservatives staying true to their principles. So look to the example of Samson, my friends, and tear that temple down.

By all means, don't bend. Become increasingly obsolete. I dare ya!

So he's going to leave the Republican party and start his own No-Taxes Party? That would have the virtue of honesty.

I think he should make it plain to all his donors that there will be no free lunch.

These people are really stupid, aren't they?

I mean, this is pretty simple.

The tax increases are ALREADY LAW!!

There is no "Obama's tax increases". In fact, he would like nothing more than to eliminate 80% of those tax increases WHICH ARE ALREADY LAW.

The only way to reduce the increases in marginal federal income tax rates THAT ARE ALREADY THE LAW OF THE LAND is to take additional legislative action. By refusing to take action you simply allow CURRENT LAW TO COME INTO EFFECT, with concomitant increases in marginal tax rates.

Just exactly how hard IS this?

Let me consult a super-ape for the answer.

There is a Bruegel painting calling out for photoshop and a Bozell face.

Oh DO convince them to support the sort of candidates Karl Rove had so much luck getting elected this year.

I, for one, am looking forward to the Bozell/Boehner battle. Pass the pesto popcorn, please!

I hear that a lot.
