The Strategic Retreat Chorus Grows
Larry Kudlow is in. I just caught Thursday's show last night (Yay TiVo and Yaayy Broncos!). It was not one to miss.
Here is the Gov. Dean piece The Refugee quoted. Gotta raise taxes on everybody, not just the rich!
But the jewel for me was Senator Rand Paul (HOSS - KY). He confirmed my parliamentary suspicions, and favors strategic retreat to getting killed in a compromise:
Senator Rand Paul, who may have the best idea, told me in an interview this week that he's prepared to pin the tail on Obama's tax-and-spend donkey. "In the Senate," Paul said, "I'm happy not to filibuster it, and I will announce tonight on your show that I will work with Harry Reid to let him pass his big old tax hike, with a simple majority, if that's what Harry Reid wants, because then they will become the party of high taxes, and they can own it."Mister Mencken had it right: "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
UPDATE: I left out that Kudlow repeated this to his guests on Friday in the spirit of endorsement. Elections have consequences, right H.L.?113th Congress Hoss Posted by John Kranz at December 8, 2012 10:49 AM
