 ” Some Republicans think a logical first step would be to compromise with President Barack Obama on pressing budget matters.

Perhaps the most disappointing comments come from The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, a previously staunch conservative who is suddenly calling on congressional Republicans to wave the white flag on tax increases.

“It wouldn’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires,” Kristol was recently quoted as saying. “It really won’t, I don’t think.”

This coming from the man who as recently as 2009 said raising taxes during an economic slump would be “the stupidest thing you could do.”

Kristol is correct on both counts, of course. ”
