No, they should not compromise on principle. Absolutely not,” Palin said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee criticized the “go along to get along” attitude that she said many lawmakers, including Republicans, adopt once they get to Washington. She extended her position to the possibility of a “grand bargain” that would combine deep spending cuts along with smaller tax increases to close the nation’s soaring budget deficit.

Palin that even in that circumstance, similar to one now being adopted by the ruling Conservative Party in Britain, Republicans should oppose tax increases. “It’s a false premise to believe we have to increase taxes on the American people to balance budgets,” Palin said. “We don’t have a taxing problem. We have a spending problem in this country." [Hill}

Those brilliant democrats.

Lessons from Bill
Clinton outfoxed a Republican Congress, but is Obama as nimble?

Just a week after Election Day, Henry Cisneros, then secretary of housing and urban development, was among those attending a small meeting at the White House. “The president was livid,” recalled Cisneros. “Frustrated. Angry beyond words . . . But in that same conversation came the beginnings of a concept, which was, if it’s going to be ugly, you may as well make it a showdown between yourself and Gingrich . . . Let it be a test of ideas.”

The White House adopted a new terminology. “Over and over again,” recalls Mike McCurry, then White House press secretary, “we used the words ‘radical’ and ‘extreme’ interchangeably to discuss the priorities of the new Republican leadership in Congress.” [full]


Clinton outfoxed Republicans? - There was no FOX

In a nutshell, here's how Democrats "won" the last two major budget show-downs with Republicans, and what promises to be another in 2011.

1990
1995
        2011
The Trigger
Bush-41 invokes his "Read My Lips-No New Taxes" campaign promise.  Refuses to sign Democrat budget w/ tax increase.
 Led by Speaker Gingrich, congress presents budget that cuts taxes and spending.                New Teaparty  congress moves to undo Obama's radical legislation.
Democrat Response
AFSCME assures Democrats that union will scream bloody murder if Bush shuts down government.

The culprit. George Bush who was forced by his own advisers to cave.
AFSCME assures Clinton that union will keep silent if he calls Newt's bluff and shuts-down government.

 The culprit: Newt Gingrich. Only informed citizens hate Clinton's guts.
Obamunists discuss building concentration camps behind closed doors; publicly call new congress Nazi-like (really)
President's popularity What Gulf War? Who cares? Newt Gingrich is the anti-Christ Where's that Muslum sob's birth certificate?
