I'm not sure why people need explanations for all of these thing. It seems like a lot of people in the liberty movement are overgrown children. The tax hikes are GOING to pass. Very high probability ... they most likely are not going to be stopped or even have a chance at being stopped.
The verbage again is politics ... do you think for a second that when it's the GOP's turn to get slapped with reality that he wont do it? He did it at CPAC and told neocons that they were NOT conservatives.
