Conservative consensus says 'send it over the cliff'

As talks on the so-called fiscal cliff continue in Washington, a consensus has emerged today among conservatives to walk away from the talks with President Obama and allow the nation to go over the fiscal cliff, or at least give the president and the Democrats all of the tax increases they want.

On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., stated that given the stubbornness and refusal of Obama and the Democrats to meet Republicans halfway on spending and debt reduction, the Republicans should simply walk away from the talks, let the nation go over the fiscal cliff, and then make sure the Obama administration and Senate Democrats "own" the fallout from it.

In addition, Fox News commentator Eric Bolling, who has emerged as a strong conservative voice, stated Thursday evening that the only way to get adequate spending cuts that will make a difference in the huge and dangerous debt load the U.S. carries is to walk away from the talks and allow the nation to go over the cliff.
