GOP Genius Of The Day...Senator Bob Corker

This is so stupid, only a Republican could think of it.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Sunday that he’s “beginning to believe” that falling in line with President Obama’s call to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, then shifting the focus to reforming entitlements “is the best route for us to take” on the “fiscal cliff.”

“There is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing that we don’t have a lot of cards on the tax issue before year end,” Corker said on “Fox News Sunday.” He continued: “A lot of people are putting forth a theory, and I actually think it has merit, where you go ahead give the president the two percent increase that he is talking about — the rate increase on the top two percent — and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlements.”

Let me sum up:

Step 1: Unconditional surrender to Obama and the Democrats

Step 2: ???

Step 3: Massive entitlement reform that neither Obama nor any Democrat wants.

Why it's so obvious!

How exactly does giving in to Obama strengthen Republican's hand in getting entitlement reform?

The biggest problem Republicans in Congress have (other than being jackasses who couldn't negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag) is they are acting as if Obama really wants a deal and to get the deficit and debt under control. Hint: he DOESN"T.

What leverage will the GOP have after the fiscal cliff is off the table? The "debt ceiling"? You mean the thing that the GOP caved on two years ago and the only thing they got out of it was....the fiscal cliff we're not dying to avoid?

Yeah, they'll totally get it right this time. Just one more surrender and then Victory!

Let. It. Burn.
