    We could open up domestic drilling. That's a helluva revenue raiser. You know, people workin', makin' money and stuff.
    So would selling off the national parks system to developers.

    Honestly, any Republican who is willing to compromise on taxes, the deficit, the debt, healthcare, etc...can count on my support in their primary if they face a nutcase Tea-Bagger.
    Unless it's a closed primary.

    Is that the best response you can come up with?

    Actually? I think ensuring Obama fails with the budget/economy is their goal. Then the election is theirs (they think. In reality, they're already being called out on this ****.)

    In the Democratic primaries, yes, you're right.

    The only thing they have to do to ensure that Obama fails with the budget and the economy is to let him have his way on everything.

    Oh wait, we're not really interested in actually generating tax revenue, we just want to raise taxes.

    I feel the same about legalizing marijuana.
