Jeffrey Lord | The Conservative Revolt: Principles and Leverage

“No retreat, no surrender.” Bruce Springsteen

The Fiscal Cliff.

It all comes down to principles.

And leverage.

Not to mention an abrupt campaign to depose Speaker John Boehner, as now reported last night by the Daily Caller. An ideadiscussed in this very space only days ago.

Grover Norquist understands this. Brent Bozell understands this. The Heritage Foundation understands this. Ditto Rush, Sean and Mark. And in truth — millions of conservatives get it in their bones.

John Boehner does not understand this.

No one understood the role of principles and leverage better than Ronald Reagan. So before we talk the Cliff, let’s talk principles and leverage in Geneva.
