Weekly Standard’s Kristol Throws Up Hands, GOP Should ‘Acquiesce’ to Obama
-By Warner Todd Huston
William Kristol, Editor of the Weekly Standard, seems to have decided that retreat is the way forward for the Republican Party. In a new editorial that approaches a meltdown, the Fox commentator and consummate Washington insider essentially advised the GOP to just throw in the towel on these fiscal cliff talks and more or less accept Obama’s terms.
In the piece, a dour Kristol detailed all the shock and depression that Republican insiders feel after losing an election they’d all thought was in the bag for team Romney and then went on to complain that the GOP’s legislative scene isn’t any better than its failed electoral scheme.
Even the fact that the Republicans still control the House is cold comfort for Kristol.
Worst of all, Kristol grouses, the GOP has no “proposal for averting the fiscal cliff.”
So, what to do, what to do? Maybe just “acquiesce” to Obama and be done with it?
