12/21/12, "Morning Examiner: Conservatives choose irrelevance," Conn Carroll, Sr. Editorial Writer, Washington Examiner
"Either way, by choosing to abandon their leader in the middle of high
stakes negotiations, House conservatives have assured that whatever
final deal does get done, whether its before or after January 1st, it
will have to be passed with a majority of Democratic votes. By refusing
to compromise at all, House conservatives have completely marginalized
themselves, making them effectively irrelevant, not just for the fiscal
cliff negotiations, but for at least the next two years as well."...
Most of the commenters don't agree with Mr. Carroll.
Ed. note: Where does Conn Carroll live? Conservatives have been irrelevant for many years. "Leader" Boehner (Carroll thinks Boehner is a "leader") was negotiating with himself. He kept going on tv telling how negotiations with himself were going. If Boehner felt compelled to "do something," he could have typed on a piece of paper, "eliminate 5 federal agencies, stop all funding to Iraq and Afghanistan, stop funding wars in African nations, and cut taxes for everyone." via Free Republic
