Never Underestimate the GOP's Ability to Snatch Defeat From the Jaws of Victory

I sure hope this is just your normal MSM BS:

Republicans aren't ruling out raising taxes or any other option for dealing with the country's debt problem as they head into the White House fiscal commission's first meeting.

"Everything is on the table," said Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.), one of six GOP lawmakers on the commission, when asked by The Hill whether he'd block any recommendation to raise taxes.

"I will sit down with anybody at anytime to discuss anything to see if there is any common ground to prevent the fiscal insanity this nation has engaged in today," said Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), another commission member.
Uh, no Senator Coburn, tax hikes are not on the table. Spending cuts should be the only thing "on the table" starting with the huge increase in government hiring and continuing on to the NEA, Department of Agriculture, anyone working on global warming/cap and trade and this idiot Obama is hiring to sell the American people something they vehemently oppose.

Here we sit with a major opportunity to decimate the Dem advantage and Coburn passes on the chance to say an emphatic no when asked about tax hikes.

Expect to see the GOP destroyed rather quickly if they agree to so much as a single penny of increases. Obama got us into this fiscal morass and he's going to have to get us out. Let the Dems tax the hell out of the middle class and we'll send them into political Siberia for a decade while we dismantle Obamacare and get the country back to its roots of capitalism and profit. Plus we can work on that concept of American exceptionalism that Obama has managed to stomp on at every opportunity.
