Dr. Krauthammer: GOP Will Hold Upper Hand On C-R

Finally we [conservative Republicans] may be seeing a little glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. It looks like for the first time I can remember in a long time, the Republicans will not cave on sequester and it will occur.  I am not happy about the 50% of cuts that will be devastating to the military, but I think the GOP can and will lead the way to correct that, so while the cuts may take place they will be the least harm possible to our national defense.  The sequester cuts will finally establish a lower baseline budget to work with.   That point was not lost on the brilliant Dr. Charles Krauthammer on the Fox News Channel panel on Special Report with Bret Baier on Monday.

Charles Krauthammer says when it comes to the Continuing Resolution to keep the government open, that will come up at the end of March, it will be the Republicans who hold the strongest hand.   Wow, how long has it been since you heard that good news.  Because of the sequestration which will establish a new budget baseline, Dr. Krauthammer opines that the Republicans will be fine with extending the government operating funds at the lower levels.  They will pass a C-R with the sequestration cuts in place and then it will be the Democrats who will oppose that.  That means president Obama can't accuse the Republicans of wanting to shut down the government, but he would have to [but won't] blame his own Democrats of wanting to shut down the government. What a turnaround if that can occur. How will the liberal main stream media portray that?   That just might be fun to watch.

That's why Tales is starting to see a very slight light at the end of this Obama tunnel of disaster.  Tales may be grasping at straws, but with the encouraging words by the great Dr. Krauthammer, I am keeping hope alive.
