A GOP implosion
Posted by Staff
John Podhoretz:

Pity John Boehner. Last night’s humiliating rebellion in the House only adds to his woes.

The most powerful Republican in Washington has been looking at the calendar and the polls, and what he’s seen is this: 1) On Jan. 1, taxes automatically go up on everyone in America. 2) Everybody is going to blame the GOP if that happens.

Has anyone ever been in a worse negotiating position?

Oh, and don’t forget the heat he’s feeling from Republicans and conservatives who are calling him a weakling and a traitor, a monster, a coward, a sellout and whatever nasty adjectives they can come up with that will make the dollars flow from political donors who think “fight” is a winning strategy after you’ve already lost.
