For weeks, Charles Krauthammer has trashed the effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to defund Obamacare as a “cul-de-sac” strategy because it would inevitably end in a government shutdown-showdown, that Republicans “just can’t” win.
Yet, last night he endorsed the notion of conditioning a hike in the debt limit or a continuing budget resolution on either subjecting federal employees, including congressmen and their staffs, to Obamacare or in a delay of the individual mandate tax or both.
But if President Barack Obama would refuse to compromise and agree to either of Krauthammer’s conditions, where else would that strategy lead but to a cul-de-sac at the end of Government Shutdown Street?

Herman Cain endures Beltway economic ignorance and poor legal advice on non-disclosure agreements from The Center Seat on FNC’s Special Report, The Panel segment, on Tuesday
This time, Americans want a man with courage to implement the values and principles that might just save America, rather than a Barbie Doll that gives all the lawyered-up, Beltway-approved “right” answers. Americans are amenable to a normal conversation with non-lawyers rather than a gotcha game.
We know that people with courage and the needed convictions aren’t necessarily those that respond like gold medalists in the perfect-answers-approved-by-peanut-gallery talking heads.
We like, admire and trust Herman Cain. We know that fixing the economy requires courage and Reagan-like principles and polices more than being a non-gaffe geek.
We hate the lawyer, PC, make-a-mistake-and-we’ll-sue-you liberal culture. We loathe it like the plague. We are tired of staying silent with glazed-over eyes as we endure the victimhood of women that heard a bad joke or got flirted with. We are tired of defending lawsuits because of “institutional” racism.
We have been tired for a long time. But now we are tired and poor.
Herman Cain sat in the Center Seat of Special Report’s The Panel on Fox News Channel last Tuesday night. He was cross-examined/ridiculed by Charles Krathammer et al on the regessivity of the sales tax portion of his 9-9-9 (modified 9-0-9 for the poor) Plan.
